Emerald – The Pantone Colour of the Year for 2013

December 9, 2012


Say goodbye to Tangerine Tango Emerald (aka PANTONE® 17-5641) is the Pantone colour of 2013…and all green lovers sigh in chromatic bliss. ;)


A rich and radiant green, this lush hue – a contrast to this year’s invigorating red-orange – is a symbol of renewal and growth. The perfect complement to many other colours, greens are a makeup love of mine. I’m particularly fond of its jewel-toned version.

Till I actually have the chance to see the Sephora + Pantone Universe 2013 Color of the Year Beauty Collection featuring this shade of green, I’ll be enjoying the verdant shadows in my stash! ;)
