Have you been bombarded with marsala yet? It’s Pantone’s color of the year for 2015, so it’s a big deal in the design world, and it’s starting to be everywhere. Marsala home decor, marsala palettes, marsala coats, marsala fashion, and of course, marsala beauty products. At first I was wondering how it was going to be paired up with other colors, but after looking around, it’s easy to see that it’s a really flexible color and works well with light greens, grays, light blues, and and even certain pinks.

And when it comes to beauty products, there are already so many great marsala-colored products to choose from. This week with Makeup Wars, we are all sharing our current marsala beauty favorites.

Favorite marsala colored beauty products


  1. Parfumerie by Revlon in Bordeaux: an almost perfect marsala. It does smell when it’s completely dry, too. Like wine. I’m not a huge fan of scented anything, but it does make for a good conversation starter (“hey, smell my nails!).
  2. Ramy Beauty Therapy Lipstick in Thrive: not only is it pretty, but it’s excellent for your lips with Avocado Oil, Vitamin E and SPF 8. How many lipsticks do you know that have sun protection? That’s what I thought.
  3. Mehron INtense Pro Pressed Powder Pigment in Red Earth: When they say intense, they mean intense. Pigments are so versatile, you can create just about anything – creamy blush, pigmented lip gloss, even nail polish. I used a fan brush and lightly dusted just a tiny bit on my cheeks as blush, and I also created a really long lasting cream-based eyeshadow by mixing it with a shadow primer.
  4. Monster Long Play Lip Vinyl in Dubstep Remix by Ardency Inn: this is maybe a shade darker and a bit more purple, but it’s darn close. And it’s really amazing on. Even though it looks like a gloss, it’s really a glossy stain. It has excellent lasting power.
  5. Cherry Cordial Lipstick by Gerard Cosmetics: a very vampy dark marsala lipstick, nice and opaque. Right on trend, too, for this winter since it’s on the darker side.

And I am super excited to see what my fellow beauty bloggers came up with. Be sure and check them out.
