Pantone Spring 2014 Roundup

Pantone picks a Color of the Year every year and this year’s color is actually Radiant Orchid.  They also pick several other colors according to the different seasons.  Spring 2014‘s shades are Radiant Orchid (of course), Placid Blue, Hemlock, Sand, Cayenne, Violet Tulip, Paloma, Freesia, Ceolsia Orange, and Dazzling Blue.  I rounded up some of my favorite beauty bloggers’ Pantone posts and put them all in one spot for you to read!  Most of them covered Radiant Orchid but there are a few that covered a shade or two of the other topics.

    When “radiant orchid” became the rage, I was confused, because so many different shades were being promoted as ‘radiant orchid’! Now, I just accept it, lol! There’s a ‘radiant orchid’ for everyone!
