Ah the Sephora Pantone Color of the Year 2016 No Rules are New Rules Makeup Collection is the new limited edition Sephora Pantone Universe 2016 Color of the Year Collection and news has broken today about this exciting launch!
It’s very exciting to say the least as the Sephora Pantone Collection has been a little quite since the Marsala Collection launched!
The Pantone Color of the Year for 2016 is Serenity (15-3919) and Pantone Rose Quartz (13-1520) and Sephora takes those gorgeous shades and incorporates the duo into classically romantic makeup collection that’s sure to please.
The new limited edition Sephora Pantone Color of the Year 2016 No Rules Are the New Rules Collection will be available this December for a limited time at Sephora and Sephora.com and includes a host of gorgeous products (exact launch date to follow).
“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 + Pantone Universe Color of the Year Layer Lipstick ($18)
Dress up your lips with creamy, bold coverage and an unmistakable attitude with a high coverage pastel in the timeless shade of Rose Quartz. Encased in a luxurious ombré component, the ultra-moisturizing formula is enriched with a blend of emollient oils and waxes for a velvety feel and high-shine finish.
Sephora + Pantone Universe Color of the Year Matte Lipstick ($18)
Explore the adventurous side of this modern color story with Serenity, a rich pastel blue. A high concentration of ultra-thin pigments incorporated into the same ultra-hydrating lipstick formula offers a radically intense, satiny finish on the lips.
Sephora Pro tip: Apply either Rose Quartz or Serenity to your bottom lip and then rub the top into it for a modern, light gradient effect. Make sure there is enough color on the top and if not, reapply to the bottom lip again and repeat. Or, layer together for an on-trend ombré look.
Sephora + Pantone Universe Color of the Year Modern Watercolors Lip Gloss Set ($28)
Bring out your playful side with the perfect pop of pastel color. This set of 6 high-shine glosses is a beautiful synergy of unique but wearable shades, including Serenity and Rose Quartz, which impart a luxurious and cushiony feel to the lips.

Discover 24 deliciously enticing shimmer and matte eyeshadows in a sleek, sophisticated palette. The range of fresh colors includes both Serenity and Rose Quartz, as well as unexpected neutrals, chic pastels, and pops of color that work together brilliantly to provide varied looks.
