Sephora+Pantone Universe Color of the Year 2016: Rose Quartz & Serenity

Pantone announced the 2016 color of the year and for the first time ever two shades were chosen, Rose Quartz & Serenity.

Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.

This year Sephora + Pantone Universe released four items to commemorate the Color of the Year. I purchased and have swatches of the three lip products however I decided to forgo the eye shadow palette from the collection.

Serenity Color of the Year Matte Lipstick   $18.00


Rose Quartz Color of the Year Layer Lipstick    $18.00 


Modern Watercolors Lip Gloss Set        $28.00

A set of six playful pastel lip gloss shades in
Cantaloupe, Fox Glove. Rose Quartz, Serenity,
Pale Banana, and Sunlit Allium

Modern Watercolors Eyes Palette       $39.00
From pastels to brights, this palette has
everything you need to create an impactful look.

* I  don't think this years colors are ones that I can pull off. I am not a big fan of light blues and pinks. I was a huge fan of 2015's Marsala but Rose Quartz and Serenity may be a color duo that I need to warm up to. The pigmentation on the Sephora + Pantone Universe collection is great, per usual. If you are interested in any of the items from the Rose Quartz/Serenity collection, hurry up and purchase them. These items are limited edition and once they sell out it is unlikely that they will be restocked.
