Seattle has a local connection with the new limited-edition Pantone Universe collection available now at Sephora and her name is Leatrice Eiseman. For years now the Bainbridge Island resident has served as the Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute and works to help pick the color trends for each season including the infamous color of the year. This year’s color, Tangerine Tango (#17-1463) inspired a partnership with beauty giant Sephora for a special, limited-edition line of color cosmetics. These products make great gifts for color-loving friends and also serve as a color pick-me-up for a rainy spring day.
The “Color of the Year” collector’s edition set is one of the best values in the line. It’s a six-piece collection of products for lips, eyes and cheeks featuring the tangerine-inspired hue from Pantone. The set contains Tangerine Tango eyeliner, lipstick, lipgloss, blush, and an eyeshadow quad. $68
Brushes in the set include a powder brush, foundation brush, blush brush, eyeshadow brush, and crease/definition brush. The brush handles are made from clear acrylic and the entire set comes with a custom made, white acrylic stand to beautifully store and display the brushes when not in use. $68
The Sephora + Pantone Universe eyelash curler is perfect for spring! It’ll add a major pop of color to your make-up bag and with it’s own display stand it looks more like a work of art than a beauty tool. $18
