Sephora + Pantone Universe Color of the Year Collection for 2016

Sephora + Pantone Universe Color of the Year 2016 Collection
Sephora + Pantone Universe Color of the Year 2016 Collection

SEPHORA and Pantone proudly introduce the PANTONE Color of the Year 2016 Collection featuring PANTONE Serenity 15-3919 and PANTONE Rose Quartz 13-1520, an extraordinary new assortment of cosmetics for eyes and lips that interprets the colors of innocence and expressionism into a bold new palette of modern watercolors. Now in its fifth year, this collaboration brings SEPHORA’s innovative textures, finishes, and product forms to a limited-edition collection that makes a fearless declaration to embrace the bold and subversive expression of individuality.

“With the whole greater than its individual parts, joined together Serenity and Rose Quartz demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute™. “Additionally, we are experiencing a gender blur as it relates to fashion, which has in turn impacted color trends throughout all other areas of design, opening our eyes to different approaches to color usage.”

With Serenity, trailblazers will discover that any color can be worn in any way, anywhere. The soft shade relates well to sister shades of blue, and is elegant with gray, olive, orchid and taupe. It takes on an earthier feel with deep lichen green, sage, cedar, shitake and sepia brown, and is easily compatible with more vibrant greens and yellows.

Traditionalists will find Rose Quartz to be a comforting favorite, pairing well with dove gray, lilac and violet, or juxtaposed against deliciously deep chocolates, greens and apricots. For something more unexpected, turn up the heat with pale gold, and warm tones of peach, orange and tan, or add dramatic contrast with peacock blue and deep jungle greens.

The exclusive cosmetics collection, designed by SEPHORA, evokes the sleek, modern lines of the iconic PANTONE Color Chip with a captivating watercolor design inspired by abstract art. Each item features Sephora Collection’s high performance formulas that offer rich color payoff and a luxurious feel during wear, with refined finishes like matte, shimmer, satin and shine.

Sephora Pretty Princess & Queen Bee Ultra Shine Holographic Lip Gels

Sephora Pretty Press Ultra Shine Holographic Lip Gel
Sephora Pretty Press Ultra Shine Holographic Lip Gel

Sephora Pretty Princess Ultra Shine Holographic Lip Gel ($14.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “holographic fuchsia.” It’s a muted, medium-dark pinky-plum with multi-coloured shimmer–though dominantly pink, lavender, and silver. This was the most pigmented of the four shades, though it was sitll only semi-sheer coverage; it just had a stronger tint. The consistency was smooth, non-sticky, and applied evenly with good shimmer distribution. On me, it lasted for four hours and was hydrating. MAC Social Season (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Dior Diorosphere (996) (P, $30.00) is cooler (90% similar). Maybelline Lust for Mauve (535) (P, $8.99) is less shimmery (90% similar). Sephora Gorgeous Red (29) (P, $12.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Burnt Sugar (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, more muted (90% similar). MAC Private Party (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Nutty & Naughty (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Sephora Queen Bee Ultra Shine Holographic Lip Gel ($14.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “holographic pink beige.” It’s a nearly colorless base with iridescent shimmer that almost seemed like a duochrome, not just holographic, as I could see it shift from a dirty silver to an icy lavender. It had sheer coverage with a fair amount of shimmer and sparkle. The shimmer dispersed evenly, and there was a glossy shine from the product overall. It wore well for three hours and was hydrating over time. Surratt Beauty Amethyste (P, $32.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Maybelline Just a Glimmer (P, $4.49) is less shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop Nonsense (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Chanel Clarte (216) (LE, $30.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Like Venus (P, $20.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Beautiful Moves (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Bite Beauty Opal (LE, $22.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Glass Slipper (LE, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Purpurine (LE, $17.00) is lighter, more pigmented, warmer (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

I think both shades are prettier in person than in photos, as the shimmer shifts and reflects light in a more multi-faceted way. I wish Sephora had been clearer about the opacity of these (the description doesn’t really indicate whether they’re sheer or opaque), because it is always nice to set expectations prior to purchasing. They say these are just a holographic variation on their regular gloss line, which has always varied in consistency, but they have tended to call out their sheerer shades with some sort of description. If you like non-sticky, hydrating, and shimmery gloss and don’t mind sheerer coverage, these are fun, but if you prefer more opacity, I’d skip.

Sephora Fuchsia Mermaid & Good Fairy Ultra Shine Holographic Lip Gels

Sephora Fuchsia Mermaid Ultra Shine Holographic Lip Gel
Sephora Fuchsia Mermaid Ultra Shine Holographic Lip Gel

Sephora Fuchsia Mermaid Ultra Shine Holographic Lip Gel ($14.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “holographic salmon pink.” It’s a light, pink-tinted base with lighter, rosy pink, silver, and gold shimmer. This shade lightened and brightened my natural lip color while adding a lot of shimmer and sparkle to the lips. I liked how the shimmer covered evenly, and it had more “opacity” due to the sheer amount of shimmer in it. The texture was smooth, non-sticky, and comfortable to wear. The gloss lasted for three hours on me and was hydrating over time. MAC On Cue (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Seducing Sound (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Sephora Good Fairy Ultra Shine Holographic Lip Gel ($14.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “holographic pale pink.” It’s a faintly-tinted pink base with multi-colored shimmer–I get a lot of teal, pink, and silver shimmer in particular. It naturally darkens and enhances the pink tones in my lips, while adding a moderate amount of shimmer and high-shine. It lasted three hours on me and was nicely hydrating, and it didn’t feel gritty and the glitter didn’t travel. Surratt Beauty Amethyste (P, $32.00) is lighter (95% similar). Maybelline Just a Glimmer (P, $4.49) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Inter-spatial (LE, $22.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

Sephora x Jem and the Holograms Truly Outrageous Eyeshadow Palette

Sephora x Jem and the Holograms Truly Outrageous Eyeshadow Palette
Sephora x Jem and the Holograms Truly Outrageous Eyeshadow Palette

Sephora x Jem and the Holograms Truly Outrageous Eyeshadow Palette ($39.00 for 0.44 oz.) is a set of twenty-four eyeshadows (they’re pretty small, 0.0183 oz. each) with a few neutrals but mostly medium or darker brights and smoky hues. The texture of the eyeshadow formula, generally, was very soft but noticeably powdery; it is easy to kick-up excessive powder in the pan and some shades would sheer out noticeably when applied. Some shades applied nicely on the skin, while the longevity of the formula as a whole was shorter than average (between five and seven hours for me).

Minx is a light-medium, yellow gold with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth texture that was a little thin but applied well to bare skin.

Mrs. Baily is a medium, coral-orange with warm, red undertones and a golden frosted finish. It had so-so pigmentation with a drier, dusty texture that made it hard to apply without losing a lot of intensity as soon as you started to blend it out. This shade wore for five hours.

Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Kimber is a muted, light-medium pink with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had a thinner feel and was on the dusty side, which resulted in sheerer coverage when blended on the skin.
