All you fans of MAC Heroine brace yourself because Sephora Pantone Radiant Rush Matte Lipstick ($18) has arrived. The Sephora Pantone Radiant Orchid Collection is now available at Sephora and with it they bring us a new shade of gorgeous purple-ly pink lipstick available in two formulas.
For the scared of their own shadow girls like me we have the new Sephora Pantone Venus Lure Lip Balm which is a sheerer, lighter lip balm that gives a hint of Pantone’s Color of the Year Radiant Orchid to lips.
And for the daring girls who aren’t afraid to go bold?
We have Sephora Pantone Radiant Rush Matte Lipstick.
Sephora Pantone Radiant Rush Matte Lipstick does effect embody the color of the year perfectly. Not quite magenta and not entirely fuchsia this cross of purple and pink clashes together to create the perfect shade of orchid for Spring.
Available for a limited time and housed in a magnetic to close square barrel with an ombre design this lipstick is all sorts of chic and elegant. Unlike the Sephora + Pantone Universe Color of the Year Creme Lipstick, Sephora stepped up the game with this packaging as if you recall it was all about a showcase of stark white to showcase the loud shade of tangerine and even last year’s emerald.
Interesting enough this lipstick has a matte satin finish so it glides on like a satin, feels like a satin finish, but has more of a matte look on lips. Interesting combo eh?
The formula isn’t drying and doesn’t accentuate drier areas on lips or the natural lines on lips. Color doesn’t migrate of feather on me and it has a hint of a nice sheen. I wouldn’t call it moisturizing but it isn’t drying in the least and wears for a solid five hours and fades to a very pretty stain behind that lasts for a few hours after. Apparently the formula is infused with orchid essence and collagen to give lips a plumped look but I didn’t feel like my lips necessarily looked fuller while wearing it. The orchid essence doesn’t give this a floral flavor or anything of the sort. It actually doesn’t have a flavor or a fragrance.
I’m a little uncomfortable in the shade myself and think it would look best on darker skin than my own but I can’t deny it’s a lovely formula and a beautiful color!
If you’re looking for something a little unique, different, and dramatic for Spring I think Sephora Pantone Radiant Rush Matte Lipstick brings it!
Available now at Sephora and Sephora.com.
