Every year Pantone chooses a color of the year and for 2018 it’s the shade Ultra Violet. Over the next few months you’ll find dozens of variations and interpretations of Ultra Violet in beauty, fashion, and home accessories. Since I’ve started following this trend I’ve liked several but this is the first I can say I love. Purple is the color associated with regality and it’s a shade that invites invention. Some of the greats (Prince and David Bowie come to mind) are associated with the color purple and they are among the people who are artistic inventors.
Pixi Beauty and Caption Nail Polish have sent some products that are wonderful examples of the magic of violet and one Beauty Info Zone subscriber will win these.
It’s no surprise that Pixi by Petra is one of our favorite brands. Being able to buy their products at Target makes it another reason to love Target so much. If you can’t find what you are looking for at Target their website is so easy to shop on plus they have a VIP reward program to help you receive extras and discounts.
Pixi’s Mesmerizing Mineral Palettes are beautifully pigmented six shade palettes that have coordinating colors so everything you need is in the one handy palette. Most of the palettes are just $12 with Amethyst Aura on special for $6 right now. You can’t beat that.
These 6 coordinating shades are cruelty free. The shadows are either matte or satin finish.
To coordinate even further there’s Endless Silky Eye Pen in Velvet Violet. Pixi’s eyeliner pencils are the ones I recommend all the time. Not only do they have a terrific variety of shades but they glide on. I never have tugging with a Pixi pencil but the best thing is that they don’t sharpen away so that I’m left with nothing like many pencils do. Normally $12, right now Pixi has some (including Velvet Violet) on sale for $6. Time to stock up!
I haven’t had a chance yet to share CAPTION nail polishes with you but I’m totally in love with them. There are an incredible amount of shades that I’m drooling over. I’m currently wearing one that’s a silvery lavender, Way Above Average, that is stunning. In the nail salon and out & about I’ve had so many compliments on it. I think my nail tech is going to steal it from me if I bring it back!
Enough Already is a perfect cream polish for Ultra Violet. While I haven’t worn it I know the quality of these polishes and how long lasting they are for me.
I’m very impressed with Caption polishes and intend to buy several more. At $9.95 they don’t break the bank either.
Now that you see these beautiful Ultra Violet picks from two fab brands you can enter our giveaway to try to win these. You’ll receive Caption polish in Enough Already, Pixi Amethyst Aura polish and Pixi Velvet Violet Endless Silky Eye Pen. What better way to start the year than with the color of the year? — Marcia
