Tangerine has been a hot color in the beauty and fashion world ever since Pantone dubbed it Color of the Year in 2012, and we predict this fiery shade will continue to be relevant for spring and summer months of 2014. I think it's popularity has stuck because it's such a versatile, flattering color. In summer months, I wear tangerine on my nails and lips almost everyday. Over the past two years, I have gone through multiple bottles of tangerine polish (this rarely happens with one single color - I usually bore easily). Tangerine goes with everything. It looks good with both neons and pastels, and it feels punchy and fresh. It's a bold choice that doesn't look as heavy as red lips and nails, yet it's a bit more interesting than hot pinks. Plus, it's a smart compliment to Pantone's newest Color of the Year, orchid.
All this being said, you might want to consider incorporating a fiery orange lipstick into your makeup palette for spring and summer. I'm excited about a new drugstore shade I just picked up, Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick in Electric Orange. It reminds me a lot of Sephora's Tangerine Tango lipstick I blogged about in 2012, when the trend first started (see here). The Maybelline lipstick stays on pretty nicely and has good pigment. It's also less than $10. Thoughts?
