Spring 2014 Colour: Radiant Orchid

So… the official Pantone colour for SS14 is Radiant Orchid. And you can actually see  cool toned pink/lavender/orchid beauty products in  several Spring 2014 makeup collections.

I am personally a big fan of  sheer lip products of such shades, and wouldn’t mind something for nails and eyes, too.

Luckily Sephora has a huge selection of the makeup in this trendy  shade, and I have chosen five that I personally wouldn’t mind having in my own makeup bag:

Spring 2013 Lipsticks: YSL, Shiseido and Buxom

I have posted about some new lip products  for Spring 2013 recently but there are even more launches.

YSL Rouge Volupté Shine, £24/$34

A new lipstick from YSL is  enhanced with fruit extracts rich in vitamins and antioxidants that leave lips visibly softer and smoother.  The texture is promised to be hydrating (up to 8 hours; it contains hyaluronic acid spheres) and lightweight.

There will be different shades for different countries. Here are just three shades to give you an idea:

4 Rouge  Danger – deep strawberry red, 6 Pink in Devotion – bright hibiscus pink, 13 Pink in Paris – dried rose pink

 There is a new lipstick range from Shiseido – Perfect Rouge Tender Sheer.

Although I am not a fan of the packaging , I like the idea of  “moist, radiant finish that smoothes the lips with a dewy texture and even application to minimize the look of vertical lip lines”.

There are six shades:  BE302 TOPAZ, BR503 SOCIETY, PK301 PRETTY, RD205 FLORA, RD304 HIBISCUS and

Shiseido Lacquer Rouge and Radiant Lifting Foundation SPF 17 for Fall 2012

Among other things, Shiseido launches a new foundation and lip lacquer for Autumn.

I am excited about the lip lacquer as it looks very promising.

Lacquer Rouge will be available in eight shades: RD203 PORTRAIT, RD305 NYMPH, RD306 CAMEL, RD404 DISCO, RD501 DRAMA, RD508 BLAZE, RD607 NOCTURNE and RD702 SAVAGE.

It was inspired by Japanese Laquer ware, should apply smoothly and leave an intense and deep colour, it should also improve the condition of dry lips.

There is also a Radiant Lifting Foundation SPF 17, available in
