5 Favorite Radiant Orchid Products

I'm starting a new on-going feature called "5 Favorite ... " where I list my 5 current favorite products in a particular category. So this week, I've chosen Pantone's Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid. 

It’s almost like they picked it just because it’s such a great color when it comes to makeup! Here are my favorites when it comes to this color. Are you wearing any radiant orchid these days on your features?


THE BODY SHOP Bunch of Violets Shimmer Cubes Palette #23 ($22 @ – this quad is great for creating an overall orchid-colored eye look. The cube shades are: Orchid Purple, Candy Pink, Pearly White and Velvet Plum. Use wet or dry and apply with brush or your finger and blend, blend, blend.

MARC JACOBS BEAUTY Shameless Bold Blush in #212 Outspoken ($30 @ – blend in  this surprisingly workable shade on cheeks. So unexpectedly fun.

DOLCE & GABBANA The Nail Lacquer in Passione ($24 @ – along with the Beauty Addicts, this one is a spot on perfect shade of the trending color. Gorg!

BEAUTY ADDICTS Lip Addiction in Seduce Fierce ($17 @ – I think this shade perfectly describes the shade. The coverage is sheer to medium depending how much you apply.

KANEBO Sensai Rouge Everlasting Colour in #115 Iwatsutsuji ($40 @ – this one is just a smidge more purple so if you want your trending shade more on that side, this would be a good one to try. And these lippies are really smooth and last quite a few hours.

Gift Picks: Because Now You’re Desperate!

What It Is: Ok, it’s the weekend before Christmas and you’re not even close to being done, so here are some recommendations to help you knock it out quickly. So if you go by online, most sites have expedited shipping. If you go by store, you’ll find these sets in the major department stores or Sephora. Don’t sacrifice quality just because you are late to the game!!

Why I Like ALL  of These: Quality, Price and Usability! So here are gifts that are guaranteed to get a “WOW!” out of the recipient.


BARE ESCENTUALS Degrees of Dazzlingnow marked down to $49 @

What It Is: 20 of their bareMinerals Eyecolors in 4 different finishes.

Why I Like It: Heck, what’s not to like?? This set rocks!


MARC JACOBS Trio Rollerball Gift Set - $39 @

What It Is: 3 of his best-selling scents: Daisy Eau So Fresh, Dot and Daisy.

Why I Like It: Even though I think these scents are more reserved for the springtime, it’s good to stock up now! And I love a rollerball form for the purse.

Review+Swatches - Marc Jacobs Beauty Lovemarc & Style Eye-Con No. 3 Plush Eyeshadow

MARC JACOBS just released a 16-piece line makeup called Marc Jacobs Beauty through Sephora a few weeks ago and the buzz is deafening! I got my paws on two of the products, the Style Eye-Con No. 3 – Plush Shadow in #106 The Rebel ($42) and the Lovemarc – Lip Gel in #128 Seduce Me ($30). I love the black lacquer of the packaging and colors look great but looks can be deceiving sometimes, so let’s take a closer look after the pics!

Scent Pick - Marc Jacobs Honey

Marc-Jacobs-Honey-eau-de-paI think I may have found my “great for the day/great for the eve” summer scent. It’s MARC JACOBSnew  Honey Eau de Parfum Spray ($52/1oz, $72/1.7oz, $92/3.4oz @ I mean, first off, how cute is the bottle with the bees on it? Butterflies with shimmering pearls as the body of each one

And honey, where do I start, I just love the scent and benefits of honey. Sephora describes it as “Sweet. Sassy. Energized.” And the notes are just as sweet but this does have some … sophistication to it too as the dry down gives it a warmth. Notes include pear, juicy mandarin, orange blossom, peach nectar, apricot, honeysuckle, honey, golden vanilla and smooth woods.

And I think it’s rare to find one that fits both day or night. Are you a fan of his scents? This one also comes in a Radiant Body Lotion ($$45/5oz) and Fresh Shower Gel ($40/5oz) so you can layer the scent on your body.
