This color is gorgeously multifaceted because it flatters both warm and cool skin tones.
Here is what Pantone had to say about Radiant Orchid:
"A modern and surprisingly versatile shade, Radiant Orchid enlivens the skin, making all who wear it feel more healthy and energetic. Blending both cool and warm undertones, purple is an appealing hue for distinctive combinations and flattering to many hair, eye and skin tones."
So, below are some Radiant Orchid inspired finds.
Gabriel Cosmetics is getting into the orchid spirit and looking festive with this wonderful eyeshadow palette which contains a color combination that was "selected personally by Gabriel to flatter every skin tone."
This might be my new favorite color palette. :)
These pocket-sized solid perfume sticks are perfect for travel and stashing in your purse.
This beautiful berry pink color will flatter both warm and cool skin tones. Plus it is all-natural, 100% vegan and gluten free.
Also getting into the spirit, Orglamix decided to make this limited-edition eyeshadow paying tribute to the color of the year. It's such a great color that, again, would look wonderful on both warm or cool skin tones.
I love these eye shadows and have been using them for years. They contain pure minerals that give you highly-pigmented without any nasty ingredients. Also, they are PETA-approved & cruelty free.
This necklace makes a statement in more ways than one: not only does it look great, but it's fair trade and ethically handmade in India. Although the description says that the necklace is made with "hand carved bone," it also says that "no animals were harmed in the making of this necklace." So, rest assured that it is cruelty-free. It is nice to see when companies make these things known!
Love this color. Plus, this is made using eco-friendly fleece.
Very simple, but will go with many outfits, these earrings are fair trade from Ecuador.
Angela & Roi makes a line of luxury vegan handbags. They've also started a "Donate by Color" program, which I think is pretty darn awesome. Every color handbag represents a different charity or cause. For instance, every purple tote, such as this one, donates to Alzheimer's research.
This company's mission is to create jobs in rural India, while simultaneously preserving the traditional handloom craft. Handweaving uses no electricity, so it is, by nature, low impact and sustainable.
Not only are these lovely scarves low impact, but they are made from organic cotton and non-toxic, natural vegetable dyes.
This beautiful bracelet is ethically handmade in Colombia using eco-friendly dyes. I love the combination of colors.
These boots are made in China in a fair trade factory and for every pair sold, one pair is given to a child in need. I follow this company on social media and I'm always seeing photos from each and every "boot drop" they do. A boot drop is when the company actually goes and hand-delivers boots to children in areas of the world where there's lots of snow and muddy conditions. So, this company is the real deal. Plus they have very friendly customer service. *Note, if you have curvier legs, I would suggest ordering a size up.
According to Roozt.com, HotDrop gives 25% of sales to 50legs.org (a collaboration that started on behalf of the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings).
