Pantone Universe Color of the Year - MARSALA!

Pantone Marsala - color of the year 2015What do you think of Pantone’s Color of the Year, Marsala? Described as a robust and earthy wine red, this color is more wearable than last year’s Radiant Orchid. Personally, I think Marsala will translate beautifully into blush, lipstick/gloss and nail polish. Sephora has already released some Pantone Marsala beauties that are sure to be a hit. I’m especially interested in the Marsala layering lip collection, which contains five sheer chubby lip pencils, each a sheer nude Marsala-ish shade. The pure Marsala matte lip creme looks beautiful as well. It’s somewhat of a brownish red from swatches I’ve seen. I haven’t seen any of these in person, or swatched them yet. I’d love to hear your thoughts, if you have!
