A couple of days ago, the upcoming ColourPop Sunflower Collection leaked, but the images shown were confusing (one reason to at least wait for the brand’s official promo photos!) — almost showed a very light, mauve-toned story without lots the kind of yellows one would expect from something sunflower-inspired! The official promo photos show a more expected color story, though, but I had already put together this post in the spirit of all things sunflower (which has been one of my favorite flowers for years!).
The first story is inspired by the common sunflower varieties–that signature, bright yellow bloom with lighter and darker centers. The second story is inspired by the more orange and red, often bi-colored, blooms of orange-to-red or red-to-burgundy (like Helios Flame and Ring of Fire varieties). The third story is kind of like sunflower goes goth–so deeper, unusual sunflower varieties like Earthwalker, Moulin Rouge, and Chianti varieties.
