2015 Colour of the year : Marsala

Happy Almost New years!

Today's post is just going to be a quick look at the upcoming 2015 colour of the year : Marsala.

I'm completely torn on this colour!

At first I wasn't really feeling "Marsala" and I was not ready to leave 2014's "Radiant Orchid" behind but after considering a couple different beauty products I already own I'm starting to warm up to this colour choice.

To help better describe this colour, here is a quote taken directly from the Pantone website:

"Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while it's grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness. This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors."

Key words for me: Wine.  The rest is a little over-descriptive.

The colour isn't as fun and upbeat as 2014's colour but is definitely more wearable. I would like to see a metallic colour of the year or a crazy sparkly silver (Obviously with a different pretentious sounding name).

I guess I'll have to wait another year in hopes for "Galactic Silver Chalice" (eh? eh?) . In the mean time here are a couple of products I found in my make up collection that could possibly pass as "Marsala".

  •  Gerard Cosmetics Lipstick in "1995"
  •  Maybelline Color Whispers in "Some like it Taupe"
  •  Starlooks Lipgloss in "Guilty Pleasure"
  •  NYX Lipliner in "Ever"

And of course swatches :

What are your thoughts on this years colour?
