Annually, the Pantone Color Institute picks its “Color of the Year.” A few years ago it was Honeysuckle, last year it was Emerald. Generally speaking, I enjoy the colors it picks. I think they can be easily adapted to most people’s styles and incorporated into their wardrobes or makeup routines. However, I’m not quite as sure about 2014′s shade. More
Love bright, bold eyeliner? Me, too. The only thing that bums me out is when you spend money on something you think will be one gorgeous color, but it turns out to be a completely different shade despite the packaging and (possibly very obscure) name.
So, I decided to swatch a bunch of them on my eyes in order to see which offered the best colors! From deep magentas to iridescent purples to aquamarines, this guide has got you covered — all under $20! More
See the dress above? If you wear it in a standard size and appreciate this color, you can find it in a shade called “Dark Heather Grey”; if you are plus-size, you can find it in “Manatee Grey,” because that doesn’t feel targeted or anything (pun mostly unintended). More

My general rule for lipstick is “it should probably be red. Like cherries in the snow. Except not cherry colored that is too dark.” More
Next time someone asks why you hate the color pink, you can say, “because it’s not even a real color, stupid,” and show them this video. More

Yesterday, we got told on Twitter that the nude shoe gallery we did was “un-PC.” So we considered renaming it the “shoes to match the skin tone of rich white ladies who rarely go out in the sun.” But, you know, we figured that might be worse. More
M&S is launching a line of “invisible” lingerie to match women’s skin tones! Which is a completely brilliant idea! Except that – according to my eyes – this lingerie is visible, doesn’t appear to match anyone’s skin tone. Because, you know, human skin isn’t eggshell colored (though I commend them on finding one model who does, indeed, have a whiter shade of pale skin). But science went into this! The Daily Mail reports: More
That’s the theory of some gamblers, who say that the dizzingly bright, intricate carpets in Vegas casinos are designed to keep you confused, off guard, and wanting to gamble more. All I know is that the last time I was in Vegas, I made the mistake of looking at one of those carpets and got so dizzy I puked. From looking at a carpet, of course. Not from drinking. More
What the hell is “greige”? Is it a chic form of grunge (like that ill-fated Marc Jacobs show that was full of flannel)? Perhaps a rare fish? No, it’s a word that Elle Canada just invented to try and describe the very odd union of the colors gray (or, in their Northern parlance, “grey”) and beige. That said, they didn’t have an example of exactly what “greige” looks like, so we might have to put this particular neologism back in the closet for now. More
