It’s that time of year again: Pantone has just announced the color we’ll be seeing everywhere in 2017. The Color of the Year is Greenery, described as ‘a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first day’s of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew.’ This bright shade is all about new beginnings, feeling revitalized and getting inspired…meaning it’s perfect for incorporating into your beauty routine. Keep reading for ten beauty products that will add some Greenery to your looks!
Butter London Greenery: Created in collaboration with PANTONE, this is literally Greenery captured in a bottle. The fresh, unique nail polish is encased in Butter London’s signature sleek packaging. As with all Butter London polishes, this is an 8 Free formula, meaning it is free of Formaldehyde, Toluene, Xylene and all of those other toxic, fear-inducing ingredients. ($10)
Smashbox Photo Finish Color Correcting Foundation Primer in Color Adjust: Smashbox has the primer game on lock. All of their foundation primers leave your skin looking and feeling smooth and poreless, and give you the perfect base for the rest of your makeup. This version is a green-toned primer that visibly reduces redness and the appearance of blemishes. ($39)
Sephora Collection Colorful Shadow & Liner in Fresh Limeade: Take your eye look to the next level with this vivid, fun shadow/liner. A cheerful lime green, you can use this as your eyeshadow, a base you can add powder shadow on top of, or an eyeliner…it’s so versatile. The formula is extremely pigmented, plus it can withstand the hottest, humid days and is even water-resistant. ($14)
NYX Macaron Lippie in Key Lime: This creamy, pastel lipstick is sure to make a statement. The light green shade glides onto your lips, leaving you with a high intensity, opaque, satin matte finish. It’s rare to find such an eccentric color at an ultra-affordable drugstore price, but NYX never ceases to amaze! ($5.99)
Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in 23 Acid Green: No brand does color quite like Make Up For Ever. It seems like every product from the line is available in every color under the sun, and we love them for it. The multi-tasking Aqua Cream comes in Acid Green, a dead ringer for Greenery. Use it as a shadow base, an eyeliner…get creative! The crease-resistant formula will stay in place for hours. ($23)
Marc Jacobs Cover(t) Stick Color Corrector: 2016 was the year of color correctors, and this Marc Jacobs one is one of the best out there. A beautiful combo of citron and lime, this corrector will both cover blemishes and neutralize redness. Apply it underneath your foundation for a completely flawless look. ($42)
It’s Skin Macaron Lip Balm in Green Apple: This fruity lip balm is shaped like an adorable macaron, and smells exactly like green apple. It’s perfect for keeping in your purse. The nourishing lip balm is not just cute to look at – it’s formulated with shea and cocoa butter, and is packed with vitamins A, C and E – so it will actually leave your lips feeling buttery soft. ($10)
Urban Decay Razor Sharp Liquid Eyeliner in Kush: Pastel liquid liners tend to go on patchy or not show up on your lid at all, but not UD’s Razor Sharp. This formula is incredible: it’s insanely pigmented, applies evenly and smoothly, and will last until you use a good makeup remover to take it off. Kush is a stunning grass green that gives major Greenery vibes. ($22)
Sephora Collection Face Mask in Green Tea: Treat yourself to an at-home spa night with Sephora’s soothing, refreshing Green Tea Face Mask. This specific mask is perfect for those with oilier complexions – it will mattify your skin. It also is packed with good-for-your-skin properties that will reduce and prevent blemishes. ($6)
ColourPop Shadow in Fizz: One of ColourPop’s earliest shades, Fizz is a striking, electric neon yellow-green shadow that’s packed with glitter. Go bold by applying it all over your lid, or add a fun twist to your eye look by applying it to the inner corner or smudging it onto your lower lash line. ($5)
