A six-piece set of exhilarating products for eyes, lips, and face, all inspired by the exuberant Color of the Year - Tangerine Tango.

Sephora sure knows a thing or two about building up the anticipation - their website has been showing the Sephora + Pantone Collection for about a month now, but it was available for sale only recently.  I did a lot of fill-the-basket before finally settling on the collector's edition which had most of the products released with this collection (no nail colours or false lashes) at a price that was definitely lower than buying each product separately.  The UPS guy delivered the set in a HUGE box today, and I just couldn't wait to start clicking photos.

The packaging of this is a classy white with a Pantone chip pattern on one side.  It's a heavy, sturdy box with the six included products nestled carefully inside.

With a name like Tangerine Tango, there was no way this set was going to turn out tame!  I just got it today, and I haven't used any of the pieces beyond the swatching.  The packaging of the products is fabulous - the eyeshadow and the blush duo are packed similar to the Inglot palettes with tiny magnets at the corners.  So far, my favorite has been the Colour Prisma Blush - it's what I wanted to pick initially and just goes to show how sometimes the first instinct is the right one :P  Detailed reviews/FOTDs in a bit after I figure out how to use some of these products :D

    1. How do you use it? Just as a regular eyeliner or do you pair it with something else?
