Radiant Orchid Lips for 2014

2014 Color of the Year Radiant Orchid in Lipsticks

Happy New Year!

First things first, a HUGE thank you to everyone who is reading this! I started Lipstick Dupe this summer and never in my wildest dreams imagined that by New Year’s I would have over 500 people visit my blog every day! You are all amazing and I can’t wait to see what 2014 will bring! Now for the Radiant Orchid Lips I know you’re here for!

 I have been so excited to share with you Pantone’s Color of the Year in lipstick! 2014 is the year of Radiant Orchid!

“An invitation to innovation, Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today’s society. An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®

Sounds good to me! Joy, love, health, and creativity? I hope you’re as excited as I am! But wait until you hear what it means for beauty:

“A modern and surprisingly versatile shade, Radiant Orchid enlivens the skin, making all who wear it feel more healthy and energetic. Blending both cool and warm undertones, purple is an appealing hue for distinctive combinations and flattering to many hair, eye and skin tones.
This multifaceted hue is seductive when combined with red and pairs well with its sister shades of lavender, purple and pink, which provides an assortment of lipstick and blush options. Radiant Orchid’s exuberance also acts as a brilliant finishing touch to nails.”

Luckily for us, this year Pantone chose to go with a color that is much easier for you and I to pull off comfortably. Last year was Emerald, and 2011 was Tangerine Tango. Both were bold, bright, in-your-face colors and limited the choices for lipstick shades unless we’re brave enough to rock LimeCrime’s incredible Opaque Lipstick line. (Ok, Tangerine Tango is a pretty rockin’ lipstick color. But Emerald?)

Radiant Orchid is surprisingly easy to pull off, and there are already so many brands that offer the color in their permanent lines. Here’s a sampling of the shades that are about to be must-haves!
