Pixi Beauty’s Take on Radiant Orchid Lip Gloss and Nail Polish
Ever since Pantone announced that Radiant Orchid was the color of the year for 2014, beauty brands have been announcing their take on the color for their cosmetics. Pixi recently announced their idea of Radiant Orchid lip gloss and nail polish. Let’s see what they came up with!
But first, a reminder of what Radiant Orchid should look like:
That’s straight from Pantone. As you can see, it’s a purple-y color, but also with some shades of fuchsia. Some brands interpret this as a straight purple color, some as a fuchsia and some—as is the case with Pixi—as more of a pink color.
What do you think? Do these represent Radiant Orchid well? Let’s take a closer look.
I can see why they’d think this color fits Radiant Orchid. After all, this is called “Orchid Petal.” Orchids come in all sorts of colors. However, I think this needs a bit more purple to fit with what Pantone had in mind.
Still, it’s a very pretty color.
Again, is this Radiant Orchid? I think it’s a bit too pink. Very Violet from their nail polish line is a lot more like Radiant Orchid than this one.
