Tangerine Tango Reigns 2012

Pantone recently announced “Tangerine Tango” is set to take the crown from 2011’s reigning hue, honeysuckle to become 2012 color of the year.

Described as a “spirited reddish orange” as well as “sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy.”

Overall the optimistic, enticing shade is meant to uplift and encourage positive energy and warmth. Truly a dramatic headliner in comparison to last year’s soft honeysuckle winner, this year Pantone has added a more outspoken color to the world’s color wheel, in addition to 2011’s honeysuckle, turquoise (2010), mimosa (2009), blue iris (2008), chili pepper (2007), sand dollar (2006), blue turquoise (2005), tigerlily (2004), aqua sky (2003), true red (2002) fuchsia rose (2001) and cerulean (2000).

Beauty Alert: With the recent crowning of Tangerine Tango as Pantone’s 2012 color of the year comes word that Sephora is teaming up with the color company just at the right time to bring consumers a new cosmetics line. The collection will be centered around the tangy orange featuring products to include makeup and beauty accessories with a price range from $18-$80.
