2018's Pantone Colour Of The Year Is The Most Wild Shade Yet

Jyotika Udeshi , 11 Dec 2017

Every December, we eagerly wait for Pantone to predict the colour that will dominate the forthcoming year. From 2015’s ‘Marsala’ to last year’s ‘Greenery’, every shade has made its mark. 2018’s colour, however, is the most stunning one yet.

‘Ultra Violet’, a blue-based purple, has been declared as the colour of the year. Not only does it depict the mystery of the future, but is also has artistic and spiritual significance. Plus, this shade works so well in our makeup kits. Here are 7 products you need to stock up on so that you can stay on trend!

1. MAC Retro Matte Liquid LipColour In ‘Recollection’

Looking to make a major statement? Swipe on this intense violet shade. The liquid lipstick is pigmented enough to last all day, whilst the matte finish adds a layer of edginess.
