Sephora + Pantone Universe Color of the Year Creme Lipstick Review & Swatches
The Sephora + Pantone Universe Color of the Year Collection continues to impress. I’m kinda surprised it didn’t sell out. It’s made the rounds on the blogsphere and has a ton of raves so count me shocked they didn’t sell out of at least one or two pieces.
Maybe everyone isn’t digging all the tangerine as much as I am.
One thing I can’t pull off? Sephora + Pantone Universe Color of the Year Creme Lipstick in Tangerine Tango Cream.
Sephora + Pantone Universe Color of the Year Creme Lipstick came with my Color of the Year Gift Set so I kinda thought of it as a nice extra along for the ride. In the back of mind I knew I couldn’t wear the shade but I was somewhat kinda sorta just wanting it because…
Don’t tell me you never purchased a beauty product for the hell of it before, you’d be lying….!
Facts is facts it’ll sizzle on darker skin tones but on my own medium fair skin it looks like Bozo the Clown went orange instead of red. Not pretty.
Color aside, the formula and packaging can’t be disputed. This is really quality makeup at an affordable price. Purchased alone it’ll set you back $18 and it’s worth every single penny.
This has a soft, buttery application with a high shine finish and plenty of pigment. The lightweight texture wears so very comfortable and the slippery feel of the lipstick keeps lips feeling hydrated throughout the wear.
Packaging is quite weighty! This isn’t a cheap plastic tube. This is a metal-like tube that has a good deal of weight backing it up, quite luxurious. I’m a little iffy on the magnetic closure which I fear might open up in a makeup bag that’s tossed around in your purse or tote, just a warning. Outside of the cap issue, the packaging is modern elegance.
It might not be my shade but facts is facts the formula reigns supreme.
Sephora continues to surprise and impress with their latest makeup offerings.
