“It’s a beguiling color that descends from the mother color purple with strong pink and fuchsia undertones,” says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “It’s not a simple primary color, and it’s not a calming purple. It’s complex, and it’s the complexity that draws people to it.” As for the “radiant” part? “It has the ability to almost sparkle with a wonderful explosion of light captivating people’s eyes,” says Eiseman.

A color that “flatters everyone and every skin type and is great at any age from an under-20 to a mom to a grandma if she’s stylish.”
