Every year Pantone comes out with their chosen colour of the year that they believe will dominate trends in fashion, beauty and everything in between. Last year’s colour, Greenery, was nice but not a stand out colour to me. Purple is one of my go-to colours when it comes to makeup and I’m so happy it’s been chosen as the colour of the year for 2018. Purple, or Ultra Violet in this case, can be a little intimidating to rock but Avon and mark. have got you covered with ways to make the trend fun and wearable.
The first easy way to wear purple is, of course, on your lips! There are two lip products that make this very easy and totally fun. mark. Lipclick Full Color Lipstick in Wrath ($10 / 3 g / Available at Avon.ca) is a buildable, creamy, highly pigmented orchid purple that’s very comfortable and lightweight. It comes with a magnetic cap to ensure the tube always stays protected.
And if you’re comfortable with wearing an even brighter and bolder purple than mark.’s Pout Velvet Lip Paint in Fantasy ($12 / 7 ml / Available at Avon.ca) is perfect for you. It’s a true, matte violet purple with pure, vibrant pigments and a built-in primer that guarantees that you get a smooth, even application that locks down for a long wearing finish.

Why not try a purple polish? Avon’s Gel Finish 7-in-1 Nail Enamel in Purplicious ($5.99 / 12 ml / Available at Avon.ca) has a high shine, gel-like finish in a glossy, lilac purple. It offers nail protection, strengthens your nails, vivid colour, as well as a base and top coat. It’s also free of formaldehyde, toluene and DBP.
And if you just can’t stomach wearing purple, it’s completely cool to indulge in products that are wrapped in purple! Treat your eyes and lips to Avon Anew Platinum Eye & Lip Cream. It’s a dual-purpose treatment for your eyes and lips that’s formulated with Paxillium Technology that boosts the production of Paxillin (a protein that helps retain the full and expanded shape of your skin cells, helping them stay looking youthful). It comes with a dual-tip precision applicator with one side featuring a round silvery tip that cools and refreshes the eye area and the flat end evenly applies the cream on and around the lips. The cream helps the skin around your eyes look more elastic and smooths wrinkles and lines around your eyes and lips for a more youthful appearance.
It’s easy to implement purple into your look one way or another, so don’t be shy about wearing Ultra Violet and find a way to make it work for you!
