Anyone into Pantone's color of year?

Does anyone buy into this? I bought the coral lipstick two years ago (great color for Summer and I already wear a lot of emerald. But I can't get into Radiant Orchid. Pastels do not look good on my skin tone. Those Pantone sets are always in the sale section, I wonder if they aren't selling well?

 

Also, I wish brands would get on board with Pantone. I'm sure it's expensive to get into cahoots with them, but matching foundations would be so easy if they had a Patone color number on the packaging!

I actually LOVE the orchid, but I hate how all the magazines are going nuts and over-doing it....I don't mind trends, but don't like when a trend gets overblown....then it just starts to feel a little cheesy.  Everywhere I look lately, I see it! Also, I agree with you about other brands.....that would be so cool to have universal color codes.....it would definitely minimize returns on their end too.  

 

But this is what I mean about the orchid.....

Haven't magazines always done colors of the year though, even before Pantone? I remember my Cosmos in high school doing collages with the it color of the moments.

yea, true, but in general, I just find it annoying when things get overblown.  But yea you are right....when did this whole thing with Pantone start? Who died and made them Color King!? lol

Pastels made me cringe. A burlap sack would look better on me!

Ugh thanks now I'm craving Earl Grey macarons from Bottega Louie, and at $3 a pop it's not really a craving I can afford right now haha.

I'm not sure Coffee. I don't recollect ever eating a pastel dessert.  

 

But, those are pretty.
