This expansive set of six is ideal for creating a full face that beams with a spirited, enlightened glow. Flush the apples of your cheeks with the warm hue, give your smile a juicy shimmer, and your eyes an energetic pop of color with this set, all inspired by the exuberant Color of the Year—Tangerine Tango. Each product is housed in an ultra-sleek architectural design as a nod to the iconic Pantone chip, making this collection both a stylish and exotic addition to your makeup bag.
Sephora has partnered with Pantone for a collection featuring the “Color of the Year”: Tangerine Tango. This review is for the Color of the Year Collector’s Edition Set, which includes 6 items from the collection.
In this review, I talk about my thoughts on this product as a set. If you would like to read the reviews for each individual product, they are available as follows:
- Eyeshadow Quad
- Eyeliner in “Tangerine Tango Twist”
- Prisma Chrome Blush in “Apricot Brandy”
- Blush Duo
- Lipstick in “Tangerine Tango Cream”
- Lipgloss in “Tangerine Tango Luminous”
This set comes in a box made of heavy, smooth cardboard. It is durable but definitely not travel-friendly. The box is huge, sitting at about 16 inches by 8 inches. The lid opens up like a book, closes via a magnet, and has a little fabric tab to open.
Each product has its own well inside the box. There is a semi-circle hole next to each item to help you get it out of the well, but I found they were small and made it a little difficult to pry the items out.
Given the quality of each individual item, I think this is a good, but not fantastic set.
Both lip products, while having great pigmentation, have a strong, bothersome, sweet scent. Both blush products left me wanting more pigmentation. The eyeshadow quad’s 2 dark colors didn’t apply opaquely, though the other 2 colors are great. The eye liner is probably the highest-quality product in this set, giving vibrant color and completely budge-proof application.
Ease of Use: 8.5/10
The biggest barrier to easy use for this set is the need to layer many of the products (the eye shadows and blushes).
If you were to buy these products individually, you would pay over $100. As long as you like at least 4 of these products, you are much better off buying the set as opposed to the items individually.
