I was looking forward to seeing what Sephora was going to have as tie-ins to the Pantone Color(s) of the Year for 2016. Last year I missed out on the Marsala (wine red) eye shadow palette they had and would’ve liked to have gotten it, but oh well, wasn’t going to pay hundreds for it on eBay.
As mentioned earlier this month, the Colors of the Year are Rose Quartz and Serenity, beautiful pastels. I kind of wonder if they’re going to be that great for all skin tones, though, especially for darker-skinned people.
At any rate, here are some of the upcoming items from Sephora:

There’s a matte light blue lipstick (WHY? Who wants to wear light blue lipstick and look like Halloween? This must be some trend that, at 57, I’m not getting. I understand that it can be “fun,” but…. blue lips???), a pink “layer” lipstick, an eye shadow palette, and a set of lip glosses that includes a blue and a yellow, because who doesn’t want blue or yellow lips. #zombielips #jaundice #frostbite
The eye shadow palette, eh, don’t think so. My first impression is that there are not nearly enough pinks and most of the colors would not flatter me at all. It seems all over the color map. I see Marsala from last year, Radiant Orchid from the year before, a weird lime green, a flat-out red, and other shades that make me say, “Probably not.” For $39, I think I can find something more flattering.
