Pantone Color of the Year 2013: Emerald

And the Pantone Color of the Year for 2013 is…drum roll…Emerald! Last night Pantone announced that the color of the year would be Emerald so expect Spring and Summer 2013 Makeup Collections to let loose da GREEN!

I was more excited about last year’s tangerine shade to be honest…emerald I’m a little meh on.

Pantone calls it “Lively. Radiant. Lush….A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well being, balance, and harmony.”

What do you think?

Sephora still has an ongoing contract with Pantone so I imagine we’ll see a gorgeous collection featuring this shade for either Spring 2013 or Summer 2013.

Do you love the color?

Embrace it for your makeup looks?

Really?

Yeah because I spend this much time washing my face, drying it, and smiling like a serial killer while I do it.

Really?

Stop it now…!

May the skincare gods bless you if you’re that dedicated.

P.S. In the end, did you notice that little smirk and head wobble? That’s her thinking, “My face is clean now bitches, Imma murder and eat you for dinner now!”

Bath & Body Works Slatkin & Co White Barn Christmas 2012 Candle

White Barn Christmas 2012 is a limited edition candle that Bath & Body Works released for Black Friday. Yeah, I know, what’s with all these sneaky little limited edition candle releases lately? First Pumpkin Carving now White Barn Christmas!

The fragrance is described as a way to celebrate the season with comfort and joy, a jubilant fragrance of sugared pine, sweet green balsam, crisp apple and smoked firewood.

Sadly, it’s disappeared from the site….! However, I’ve come across a variety of Evil-bay shops selling it (with free shipping) for as little as $10 so if you missed out on it you might want to snatch it up. I don’t really like it…! I’m not much for green, Christmas-y tree scents and this has all that.

I have to admit lately though I’m on this kick for anything mixed with apple and Holiday greens! Like Yankee Candle Apple Wreath is making my world go right round baby! Loves it.

Just thought I’d throw this up though for anyone who enjoys greener Holiday scents as you might have missed this or not known about it until this post.

Did you purchase it?

What are your fav Slakin & Co. Candles from Holiday 2012 so far?

I kinda dig Cinnamon Frosting even though it’s a tad artificial!
