Think Pink

Go romantic with color-of-the-moment Rose Quartz

Sephora + Pantone Universe Color of the Year Layer Lipstick

Valentine’s season is not just a time of roses in the form of beautiful bouquets, but a time to embrace rose as a color. The color experts at Pantone chose rose quartz (plus a blue called serenity) as their color of the year, noting a cultural craving for compassion, relaxation and connection without the bombardment of addictive electronic devices. These beauty products speak to the romance, wellness and softness that “rose” evokes.
