Sephora + Pantone Universe

Saturday, April 7, 2012

If you've been reading my blog, you know that I'm completely obsessed with Sephora.  Honestly, I'm like a kid in a candy store whenever i  shop there.  Every time i go, i find new beauty tools to experiment with, new shades to play with and all kinds of fun ways to help me get dolled up.  If you're really lucky, you'll even walk away with a sample or two!  I own a Beauty Insider card which allows you to accumulate points whenever you shop there and then redeem them for free stuff.  In fact, i was recently upgraded to a VIB!  This essentially means i shop there way too often! lol But, it's a place of happiness for me.  Well, recently, they teamed up with the global color authority for forecasting and science Pantone Universe creating a limited edition product line inspired by the color of the year 'Tangerine Tango 2012'.  Well, I'm a huge fan of the color orange so this was sweet music to my ears!  I want EVERYTHING!  But, i opted for the 4 pack of Tangerine Tango nail enamel containing one shimmery, one glitter, one matte and one creme color all in the same hue ($24).  I immediately gave myself a mani/pedi while experimenting with the textures.  I wound up with the Tangerine Tango Creme topped with the TT Glitter.  It's such a fun color to wear.  And this monochromatic look is incredibly shiny and sparkly in the sunlight really standing out!  I also picked up the lip color (@$16).  As you've seen in previous posts where I've experimented with orange lip hues, this one stands out tremendously mainly because it's not matte.  It glides on very smoothly and has a sweet pleasant taste to it.  I'm sure I'll be back for more from this collection as it's a limited edition.  Get yours before they sell out! 



  1. I love that polish pack. I am going to hunt for some glittery polish myself this weekend. I totally get what you mean about a kid in a candy store...I am that way when I go into Ulta. I finally made myself stop going because I was spending way too much!


  2. Amy I hear you loud and clear!! Lol have fun with the glitter polish! Let me know how it turns out :)

  3. I don't know why but those red glitter nails remind me of Dorothy's shoes from Wizard of oz... weird I know.. but I love them.

  4. It actually reads much more red on camera than in person. The pantone colors are much more of a coral/orange and the glitter in the set is a bit of a rust. I agree... Dorothy's shoes have always made me happy! But then again, shoes in general make me happy :) lol
