Violet Tendencies: La Vie En Pantone’s Ultra Violet with Clarins

We cannot wait to layer ourselves in Pantone’s 2018 Color of the Year, a “dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade” called Ultra Violet. This blue-based purple has of course been associated with royalty and legendary artists like Prince, Jimi Hendrix, and David Bowie. We’re diving right into this stunning and regal color with French luxury skin care, cosmetics, and perfume company, Clarins. We’re currently in love with three of their products that celebrate the dignified hue, Clarins SOS Primer in 05 Lavender, Clarins 4-Colour Eyeshadow Palette in 07 Lovely Rose, and Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector in 08 Plum.
