Orange You Glad Tangerine is the Color of the Year for Eyes?

*Post originally written by Olivia J on The Unknown Beauty Blog. If you read this post elsewhere, it has been stolen.*

This is the post on the Sephora Pantone Eyeshadow Quad and Tangerine Tango Twist Eye Pencil.  Probably the two items you would have doubts about because of the orange. I can say that if you are daring then one is for you and if you like neutrals then the other is for you.

The Sephora Pantone Color of the Year Eyeshadow Quad ($28USD) and the Tangerine Tango Twist Eye Pencil which is found in the 3-piece eye pencil set with black and brown ($22USD) are the two cosmetic items for the eyes.

If you like vivid colors or like to play with them then this Tangerine Tango Twist pencil is one to add to your collection.  The color leans towards the red/orange with gold shimmer.  The pencil is retractable and houses the pencil sharpener in the end.

The pencil does make a statement.  If you like orange and shimmer this will do it.  The formula is one of those long-lasting ones and sets to a budge-proof finish.  The color can be smudged before it sets.

The eyeshadow quad is a different story.  It may look intimidating but it is not.  There are four beautiful colors: Sparrow-a satin dark brown with a slight grey/purple undertone; Pavement-shimmery charcoal grey with silver specks; Scallop Shell-ivory with a slight seashell pink; and Carnelian-shimmery terracotta.

The colors are soft and subtle compared to what they look like in the pan.  They formula is smooth and refined but maybe not as some of the ridiculously priced high end because of the lack of nylon-12 or PTFE in the ingredients.  However, they are comparable to several cosmetic counter quality shadows.

In the picture above I used all the colors in the quad.  (I will probably do a face chart of how in a future post.)  See how subtle the Carnelian comes out?  It is almost like a neutral color.  To the other shadows it gives it enough contrast without looking outrageous.

Add the Tangerine Tango Twist eye pencil for a touch of fun.  On top of dark shadows, the color is toned down.  The far right picture is in softer light.

Tangerine may be a hard color to wear but the way Sephora made it, the color is wearable.  I find that just letting go of the thought of orange is the first step to take when hesitant about this kit.  The second step is to realize, don't wear all of it at the same time.  Just draw attention to one part of the face because with color, less is more and that makes more of a bold and fashionable statement.
