Pantone Universe: Color of the Year--Tangerine--My Answer

As I mentioned in a previous post, Pantone Universe has declared Tangerine as the Color of the Year.  And Surprisingly, the color is very complementary to my skin tone (NW43) and I have fallen in love with the color. So I went hog-wild in seeking many different products in variations of the color Tangerine, Orange, Coral, etc.  

Of course, I started with nail polishes in that color. The golden shimmer, and undertones really work well with my complexion.

I then looked to find lippies in the color Tangerine.  Of course, one of the first, was the Sephora + Pantone Universe collaboration--Tangerine Tango.

To go with the lipsticks, of course I needed lip glosses.  So I found a few.  I even found an orange lip liner.

The last beauty product I ever thought I would attempt in orange or tangerine would have to be a blush, but I took the jump of faith and there is no looking back.  I am loving NARS Taj Mahal.  I even picked up Maybelline Eyestudio Color Tattoo in Fierce & Tangy.  

I need to give some of the orange, tangerine, and coral eyeshadows in my Coastal Scents 88 palettes (Mirage & Metal) a try.

Have you added any orange to your makeup wardrobe for the season?

 Grace, Peace, & Blessings.

I am totally loving the tangerine shades as well. I need to get pinkish oranges bc my skin is so light. I think I may NEED(!) NAR Taos. :)
Thanks for the swatches
