Beauty Tag: Colors of the Rainbow

I was tagged by the gorgeous ladies of IndieKnow to do a “colors of the rainbow,” picking my favorite product for each color. It was tough (for various reasons) but here they are!

Colors of the Rainbow Tag

Red: Givenchy Le Rouge Grenat Initie

This one was totally easy – Givenchy Le Rouge is my favorite lipstick formula, and Grenat Initie is an amazing red shade.

Orange: Guerlain Rouge Automatique #141 Quand Vient l’Ete

I don’t have a huge number of orange-toned products, but this is an incredibly fun summer color. Now if summer would just get here….

Yellow: Smashbox eyeshadow

This one was tough because I apparently own almost nothing yellow. As in, the only other option was a rubber band. So by default I guess my favorite yellow is this eyeshadow that I depotted from an ancient Smashbox holiday palette!

Green: CoverGirl Clump Crusher

This color got conveniently narrowed down through a lack of products too. Out of all the green (or green-packaged) makeup in my collection, this is my best-loved and most-repurchased one.

Blue: Shu Uemura 675

It looks a little pale and frosty in the photo, but in real life this is a bright, vibrant blue.

Indigo: Lorac Sapphire

Even before I started picking out stuff for the other colors I knew this would be my shade for indigo. Aside from being really pretty, I’m a big fan of Lorac eyeshadows in general.

Violet: Tom Ford Crushed Amethyst

There’s no way I could leave this one out – by far my favorite purple palette.


I skew a little more toward neutrals, so I’d love to see this done by some of my favorite colorful lades:

Han from Hantastic Beauty

Jillian from Jillicious Cosmetics

Saskia at Pretty Trivialities

Silverkis at Silverkis’ World

Tiffany on Will Work for Makeup


Along with anyone else who wants to play! If you do please be sure to leave a link in the comments so we can all check it out!

    It was so fun to see this show up in my feed reader yesterday! LORAC Sapphire is stunning – I’m not surprised it was your first pick.
