Pantone Color of the Year 2018 – Ultra Violet

The Beginning of 2018 inspires new trends and Pantone’s color of the year is Ultra Violet – “a dramatically provocative shade that communicates originality, ingenuity and visionary thinking.” I’m quite happy with this year’s choice because I love purple! It was the color scheme at my wedding and the shade I am usually drawn to when choosing products.

Avon is always at the top of their game when it comes to stylish pigments and they already have a variety of great makeup to showcase this mystical hue.

As a lipstick junkie and Beauty Editor I have a lot of purple in my makeup collection including the Velvet Lip Paint in the shade Fantasy ($12.00). This fresh, energetic hue may be a little too bold for the office (depending on where you work) but in the evening it makes your pout standout. The pigmentation is highly saturated and dramatic with a lush non-drying finish. To see the other pretty shades read my full review HERE.

If you prefer lipstick to liquid paint then check out the mark Lipclick in the shade Wrath ($12.00). This version of violet is a gorgeous combination of mild pink and flattering orchid that is perfect for spring. The smooth, satin finish is lightweight, full-coverage and hydrating for cushiony comfort and hours of wear. The Lipclick collection was actually one of my favorite releases of 2017 and you can check out the entire range + swatches by clicking HERE.

I’ve been too busy to paint my nails recently but Purplicious will definitely be my next mani shade. The Gel Finish 7-in-1 Nail Enamel ($9.00) is perfect for my busy lifestyle because the formula includes base coat, protection, strengthener, vivid color, gel-like finish (no UV required), shine and top coat. The polish is also easy to apply and does not contain formaldehyde, toluene or DBP.

If you love a good multi-purpose product then try the Anew Platinum Eye & Lip Cream ($45.00). It comes with an applicator to help soothe tired eyes and massage the ingredients in thoroughly for better absorption. The formula contains anti-aging proteins responsible for youthful cell shape and it helps diminish fine lines around the eyes and mouth while moisturizing, firming and rejuvenating.

To fully embrace the Ultra Violet theme and contribute to a good cause, the Peaceful Spaces Ombré 4 Piece Glass Set is a must ($25.00). I love the contrast of purple tones and the gold butterflies delicately etched on the glass represent eternal freedom and peace. With every purchase Avon will donate 10% of the proceeds to domestic violence programs for women.

Avon is available online at or through independent consultants
