It’s official! The Pantone gods have spoken, and the 2018 Color of the Year is the color of every dreamy nebula in existence (or so we assume) — ULTRA VIOLET! In order to truly embrace and celebrate the Pantone choice for the upcoming year, we rounded up the best ultra violet inspired makeup products to keep you on trend and powerfully purple.

Urban Decay Heavy Metals Palette

It’s no surprise that Urban Decay Heavy Metals collection is the perfect edgy ultra violet inspired product to add to your collection. While this palette includes neutrals and brights, Metalhead and Spandex are foolproof purples to rock in 2018.

Essie Sexy Divide

Purple is a powerful color to rock on your fingertips — and Essie Sexy Divide is the purple you need to achieve an ultra violet manicure. Sexy Divide is grounded in purple-blue hues, but has a little juicy shimmer that gives it a little edge.

NYX Professional Makeup Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick In Amethyst

A purple lipstick is probably the easiest way to swipe on the ultraviolet color with minimal effort. This NYX Liquid Suede in Amethyst goes on super smoothly and is super pigmented — plus, it’s totally budge free.


YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils in Fascinating Violet

Ultra violet doesn’t necessarily have to be the focal point of a purple inspired makeup look — in fact, it stands out just as well in the details. This YSL mascara in Fascinating Violet adds just the right amount of purple without crossing over to the ultra-ultra violet territory — and that’s why it’s one of our favorites.

Maybelline Color Sensational Bolds Lipstick in Sapphire Siren

Designated as the perfect ultra violet lipstick, Sapphire Siren is the ultimate pick to celebrate the 2018 color of the year — and we challenge you to ring in 2018 rocking this Pantone color.
