Pantone’s 2011 color of the year keeps you pretty in pink. Or honeysuckle.

pantone honeysuckleThis week on Blogher Style, I wrote about the new 2011 Pantone color of the year: Honeysuckle.

Well slap me silly, I would have thought it would be some sort of yellow shade but nope. It’s pink all the way. And why yes, I am laughing a bit at Pantone’s promises that honeysuckle elevates our psyche
beyond escape, instilling the confidence, courage and spirit to meet
the exhaustive challenges that have become part of everyday life.

Will pink nails and rosy scarves instill us with the confidence to meet life’s exhaustive challenges? Maybe not. But I do like the color.

Since Sephora is currently running a promotion that offers free shipping with $50 orders, plus 3 free samples, I combed the joint for some lovely products that can help keep you pretty in honeysuckle pink.

Bobbi Brown has always done right by me, and the Pretty Powerful Palette can add a nice burst of pink to pale or medium skin tones.

Tarina Tarantino makeup brushes let you brighten up your vanity with pink, before you’ve even cracked open the blusher.



Fans of Benefit
love their Full-Finish lipstick, and their “Pinking of You” shade will
be so surprising and fun if you don’t save it until spring.

    To be honest, I don’t mind this shade in makeup or small doses. As soon as someone paints a room this color – and we know someone will -, I’m going to throw up.
