FRONT/CENTER: SEPHORA + PANTONE UNIVERSE COLOR OF THE YEAR PRODUCT COLLECTION

Finally, our Sephora + Pantone Universe Color of the Year products are available!

“When I first discovered what the Pantone Color of the Year was, I was in awe,” says Sylvie Rouaix, Vice President of Product Development and Brand Marketing, who develops the collection. “Emerald happens to be my favorite color. I think it’s mesmerizing—it carries energy and has soothing qualities.

“[To prepare,] I started dreaming in color. I laid out a vision for eyes, portraying strength and modernity. I then created the spirit of a supporting ensemble, see-through textures, touches of lilac and peach—the perfect neutrals complementing the amazingly rich emerald shades.

“Our mission was to capture the modernity of the shade while leveraging the historical relevance and power. Most women love emerald for its depth and elegance. We built a technicolor world for the modern woman.”
