Makeup Monday: Sephora x Pantone Universe Collection

One of the biggest events in the fashion world every year (besides fashion week of course) is when Pantone announces the official colors of the upcoming year.  I don’t take it very seriously, it’s really more of a fun thing but since I went to fashion school, it’s a thing I look forward to nonetheless.  The colors chosen are always prevalently used in clothing lines, determine makeup trends and generally influence a lot more consumer products than you would ever imagine.  I was thrilled when Pantone announced the colors of 2016 because they’re two of my absolute favorites; Rose Quartz (which is a pastel pink) and Serenity (which is a pastel periwinkle / sky blue blend).  I’m really into pastel colors, especially lately, so I’m ecstatic to buy some more clothing in those colors!  Sephora also recently released a collection celebrating the colors and I’m planning on buying the Rose Quartz lipstick and the eyeshadow palette after Christmas.

Sephora + Pantone Color of the Year Matte Lipstick in Serenity

While this lipstick comes in the same texture and finish as Rose Quartz, this version of the lipstick is even more daring, yet delicate thanks to its Serenity hue. Color it on your lips for a futuristic effect that wows the present.

Etsy Shop I’m Obsessed With This Week: Word To Your Unicorn

My fellow geek girl blogger and good friend Leslie Stewart, also happens to operate one of my all time favorite Etsy shops, Word to Your Unicorn.  Leslie sells post cards, greeting cards, and stickers which were inspired by her geeky and kawaii interests.  She keeps adding more and more to her shop and I always find myself favoriting every new item.  I’m especially obsessed with her recent Studio Ghibli and Sailor Moon designs.  I’m also loving the minimalist Avengers postcards which resemble Pantone color cards, and I dare you to look at the Dalek’s Need Love Too postcards without immediately wishing you could hug one of Doctor Who’s adversaries.  It’s fitting that Leslie would be impressing us with her designs in the form of postcards and greeting cards, because she’s also one of the co-creators of the International Geek Girls Pen Pal Club.  If you haven’t already joined, I highly suggest you do!  It’s a great way to make a new geeky friend, preserve the lost art of letter writing, and of course, get excited for geeky surprised in your daily snail mail delivery!  Leslie is uber talented and when she’s not busy designing new stationary, she’s blogging all of her clever thoughts on her new site Leslie IRL.  I have a bunch of Leslie’s stationary but I love it too much to send to anyone =^.^=
