Sometimes, it’s hard to make a choice between two good options — which is why it’s always better to have both! For the first time in history. Pantone has released two colors for the year of 2016: Rose quartz (a light pink) and Serenity (periwinkle blue). Every year, the fashion and beauty industries awaits Pantone’s announcement to tip off the color trends for the seasons ahead, and it seems that we will be looking forward to pastel colors in our near future. But these aren’t nursery colors, says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of Pantone’s Color Institute: “Rose quartz is not baby pink.” While we watch out for the new color collections, here are 12 Rose quartz and Serenity-colored beauty products to get a jump on the season ahead.
