Falling for Radiant Orchid | Beauty Product Ideas for 2014

Fall in love with next year's color of the year, Radiant Orchid.

Pantone recently declared Radiant Orchid as the official shade for 2014. Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of Pantone Institute of Color, mentioned that it takes a lot of research to decide what the next year's color is going to be. But it is basically seeing the antenna color being used of late.

The color means creativity, challenges, perfection and beauty. From last year's prosperous shade, and seeing as how the market has started to flourish and there were a lot of growth in the economy, Radiant Orchid seems to be the apt shade for 2014 as it denotes taking risks for innovation now that we are more secured. :)

For us beauty mavens and enthusiasts, the radiant orchid is definitely a chance to dip our brushes on some of our favorite purple eye makeup looks and enjoy more of the growing popularity of deep purple and mauve lippies.

I've gathered here a few products that celebrates the radiant orchid and at the same time still proves to be timeless pieces you'll appreciate having in your vanity for the rest of the year. :)

MAC Heroine - the demand for this lipstick has grown exponentially larger with next year's new color. This bright purple lipstick will surely wow some lookers and bring out your smooth complexion. :)

Bobbi Brown Nude Glow Nude Eye Palette - the mix of pinks and deep mauve will suit a lot of skintones and eye color. Shimmery grey is also a nice alternative should you not be too keen on rocking radiant orchid on your peepers.

MAC Commotion - moving away from mattes? Try the plush glossy finish of MAC Huggable lip collection in Commotion. It's a cool berry shade that doesn't compromise on pigments but has the shine that leaves your lips looking lush.

Shiseido Lacquer Gloss in Phantom - Shiseido added a few more colors to their famous Lacquer Gloss collection. This collection is intense, a lip cream true to its shade and texture. Phantom is definitely the shade to get if you want a true radiant orchid lip color in your collection. :)

Guerlain Meteorites 2014 - the best blush for radiant orchid eyes and lips are rosy pink cheeks and what better way to do than the luxurious beads of the reformulated Guerlain Meteorites. :) It comes in 3 shades, choose the one that has a cooler tones. :)

NARS Kauai Due Eyeshadow - summon the best of the 70's with this duo palette of shimmering gray and deep luxe purple and ready to sing to the song "Royal". I'm in love with this shade! Great for evening out with the girls!

Benefit Lolli Tint - the quirkiest brand out there has added another tint to its popular collection! Lolli Tint is candy-orchid shade that reminds me a lot of Hervana and I'm in la-la-love! Want to try out this year's shade without going overboard like I do? Get yourself a bottle of Lolli tint

Shu Uemura Bijoux Lashes - we all need a bling when we are talking about luxury shade of Radiant Orchid. The Bijoux lashes is definitely that! :) And who doesn't love gems on their lashes? :)

Yves Saint Laurent Manifesto L'eclat - I fell in love with the sexy bottle of YSL Manifesto and more so with L'eclat which is a fresher, more feminine scent of the collection. It opens up with fresh green tea, bergamot and blackcurrant buds. Soft jasmine and freesia at the middle and then settles at the base with vanilla, tonka beans, sandalwood and cashmere. The perfect scent to welcome new year!
