The Color of 2018 is Ultra Violet + Ultra Violet Inspired Beauty Products


I always look forward to learning about the official color of the year, as per Pantone. This time, I love their choice because I think it's about time that we recognize the serenity, beauty, and magic of  the color Violet. I also got inspired to scour my stash for the top beauty products inspired by this year's official color.

Violet is part of my top 5 favorite colors along with Blue, Black, Pink, and White. I've always found this color soothing, mysterious, magical, ethereal; it indeed reminds me of galaxies, space, stars, and dreams beyond this earth.

And here are some makeup products to put your makeup stash on trend and for an Ultra Violet- inspired beauty.

HAPPY SKIN X SANRIO LITTLE TWIN STARS AIR TOUCH SPONGE

Two mini blending sponges in blue and purple. These are meant to blend cream products for contour, highlight, and blush.

Made with anion technology to help minimize odor. I don't know if it's just me, but I have less cramps whenever I'm using this!

TENTEN NAIL POLISH IN PURPLE GRAY AND DEEP PLUM

A proud Thai nail care brand with a 5- free formula (free from 5 harmful chemicals). These are some of the most gorgeous nail polish colors I have seen!

ZOYA NAIL POLISH IN EASTYN

A unique grayed grape color that will look amazing on medium and fair skin tones.

THE BODY SHOP FROSTED PLUM BODY BUTTER

Sweet, cool, and crisp, reminds you of chilly yet heartwarming Christmas nights. It's good memories in a tub.

HARU SOAPERIE BUBBLE BATH BOMBS

Affordable dupes for Lush Cosmetics' Bath Bombs. These are great as bubble bath companions after a long day and can be used for hand and foot soaks as well.

  2. This year's Pantone color is honestly hard to pull off in my opinion. I've always had a hard time wearing purple/violet makeup, clothing, etc. Good thing you're helping us out with the color starting with this post. Thank you so much, Ms. Martha! Big help!

  12. Aside from red, pink and black, i also like violet! In fact, i got too excited that i reposted on IG the announcement post that it's Pantone's color of the year. I have the Tony Moly red wine mask and i'll be using it tonight. I was supposed to use it last Friday but i was feeling lethargic because of stomach flu so tonight, i'll try it! I'm currently loving Creamsilk violet. It helps relieve itchy scalp and control flakes and at the same time, it gives me soft and manageable hair.
    Honestly, purple eye makeup seems so hard to perfect.
