By now, many of you know this year's Pantone color of the year is the beautiful "not quite pink and not quite purple", Radiant Orchid. It's such a beautiful shade and I fell in love with this cheek palette's use of it right away.
All of the 3 shades in the palette are very pigmented and as smooth as butter in texture. The Radiant Orchid shade, to the far right, is the biggest and is bright in the pan. Since there's so much pigment, just a touch is needed on the brush for a more natural light flush of color (perfect for those of you with lighter skin tones), and it builds beautifully to a truly bright Orchid, (perfect for deep brown skin tones).
I also think the three shades work very well together. The finish on all of them has just a touch of sheen and very light shimmer, which still works for day time. I often used the more peachy shade to the far left and the middle champagne shade together as a highlighter on the cheekbones, or combined the peachy shade with the Orchid to create a slightly different version of it on my cheeks. The staying power was all day wear with no fading or smudging.
The packaging is perfect. It's modern, includes a nice Orchid Ombre design, and is sleek and thin enough to fit into any bag. Since it's limited edition, the time is now to treat yourself or the beauty lover in your life to one. - RLB
