Pantone Living Coral Color Story

At the end of every year, we excitedly wait to see what gorgeous hue will be the next Pantone Color of the Year. The chosen color sets the tone for the next year and influences trends in fashion, art, and beauty. And this year, Pantone decided to fill our world with bright, punchy pops of color! "Living Coral" color, to be exact.

Living Coral with Pantone


Pantone's 2019 Living Coral shade is vibrant and fresh, reminiscent of tropical reefs full of sea life. We LOVE this color and can't wait to see it makes its way into the beauty and fashion world through the year.

However, if you are a devoted 42 Dubonnet lover, seeing this bright shade might leave you with a sense of deja vu. Remember when we launched a certain coral product back in August of 2018? 

2-in-1 Blush & Lip-Stick in Coral Oasis 


Our Coral Oasis 2-in-1 Blush & Lip-Stick was launched last summer, but now fits in perfectly with Pantone's Living Coral color craze! We promise we aren't psychic, even if this might seem too good to be true. Regardless, this lucky turn of events gives you just what you need to celebrate this year's color through your beauty routine.

Perfect as both a lipstick and a blush, this stick is your secret weapon to give your face a naturally beautiful flush. No tropical vacation necessary!

 Living Coral Color Companions


Along with its yearly selection, Pantone also releases a palette of colors that pair well with the chosen shade. And in 2019, the complimenting color palette is filled with dynamic colors plucked directly from a tropical island.

For us, these shades bring to mind hibiscus flowers and giant palm leaves swaying in a salty breeze. Delicate sea shells scattered across white sand beaches. Tropical fish swimming along a reef. Nothing but blue sky and sea for miles. 

All of these colors bring bold energy and vivacious life along with them, which makes them especially perfect for spring and summer! Once winter comes to an end, these shades will start showing up everywhere to bring back warmth and joyful color. 

And no better place to show them off than in beauty. All these colors, worn alone or in combination, will create show-stopping makeup looks. From lipstick to eyeshadow, dare to go bright!
