The Pantone colour of the year is a beautiful bright purpley blue, or Pantone 17-3938 Very Peri to be precise. You’ll find the colour popping up in fashion and beauty outlets throughout 2022, as well as your favourite homes and interior stores. Why not update your make-up bag with this beautiful shade, and take a look at our fashion picks, too!
According to Pantone, Very Peri is, “a symbol of the global zeitgeist of the moment and the transition we are going through… Digital design helps us to stretch the limits of reality, opening the door to a dynamic virtual world where we can explore and create new colour possibilities.”
That’s as maybe, but Very Peri is certainly a beautiful and inclusive shade for make-up, and online beauty retailer Escentual.com has compiled some of their best products of 2022.
GIVENCHY Rouge Interdit Vinyl Extreme Shine Lipstick
Shade 19 Shadow Purple 3.3g, £17.22 at Escentual.com
The limited-edition collection of GIVENCHY Rouge Interdit Vinyl Extreme Shine Lipstick offers something a little bit different to your usual nude lip. Each shade provides a sheer veil of reflective colour that can be layered to create a more intense effect. Available for a short time only, each creamy lipstick offers a layer of glossy shine that feels soft and nourishing on the lips. Its hydrating formula includes black rose oil to provide a comforting blanket of colour and silicone resin to plump and smooth lips. Desert rose crystals are also included to help smooth fine lines on the lips for a blurred, soft-focus effect.
Yves Saint Laurent Lame Crush Metallic Eye Shadow
Shade 42 Magnetic Purple 1.8g, £22.95 at Escentual.com
The soft powder is easy to apply in just one stroke, so it’s perfect for all make-up abilities! But one of the things that we love the most is YSL’s iconic gold packaging; adorned with the YSL logo, the luxurious compact is an elegant addition to any make-up bag. Plus, the travel-friendly compact contains a handy mirror for touch-ups when you’re out and about, so you can enjoy a subtle shimmer from day to night.
Elizabeth Arden Sheer Kiss Lip Oil
Shade 05 Purple Serenity 7ml, £11.70 at Escentual.com
The Sheer Kiss Lip Oil keeps lips soft and plump with a blend 5 precious botanical oils: coconut oil works to soften with its natural infusion of lauric acid, avocado oil provides antioxidant benefits, meadowfoam oil improves suppleness, spilanthes acmella flower firms, and tsubaki oil supports the skin’s natural collagen for a plumped-up effect.
Urban Decay Naked Ultraviolet Eyeshadow Palette
12 x 0.95g, £26.95 at Escentual.com
Eyeshadow palettes offer great value, as well as grouping shades that work so well together. Showcasing everything from subtle peachy nudes to three shades of deep, dark and dramatic purples, Urban Decay’s hyper-pigmented, velvety eyeshadows cover the colour of the season brilliantly. The iridescent micro-shimmers and light-reflecting shades create a stunning base, while the transformer shades add a sleek, futuristic finish. Purple has been Urban Decay’s signature hue from the start, so we love that this palette is dedicated to the colour. With a wide mirror in the lid and an expert double-ended brush, it’s a stunning and unique addition to the Naked line-up.
Miller Harris Violet Ida Eau de Parfum Spray
50ml, £51 at Escentual.com
It’s hard to tell what “colour” a fragrance is unless you have some kind of synesthesia, but we think Miller Harris’ Violet Ida is the closest match to the Pantone colour of 2022. Wistful top notes of Italian bergamot and carrot oil blend effortlessly together, scattering over the wearer in a burst of rich vibrancy before a voluptuous heart of orris beurre and heliotrope take centre stage. Spritz for a long-lasting cascade of fragrance.
