Rose Quartz; the two words everyone is talking about this year.

In the case that you’re not in the know —it seem like a soft shade of pink on almost every social media platform these days.

Ever since PANTONE 13-1520 Rose Quartz was announced their 2016’s Color of the Year, this milky shade of baby pink had caused an huge uproar in the world wide web. Since then, the color transcends cultural and gender norms into a Unisex Palette for both the fashion and beauty industry. Seriously, it’s everywhere: in advertisements, in Drake’s music video, on designer racks, and even in beauty products. That’s right, coincidentally — we have been injecting this infamous color in all our beauty rituals.

Ahead, I’ve rounded up products that match the millennial aesthetic (aka my secret favourite color). Pink is back, people — and it’s more Instagrammable than ever!

Jin Soon Nail Lacquer in Dolly Pink, $18, available at Nordstrom.


One coat of this polish gives nails a hint of healthy flush; two is sweet, milky perfection. Besides that, you can pair the nails with intricate jewelries such as rings and bracelets for accessorizing — did I just gave you an Instagram post idea?

MAC Lipstick in Crosswires, RM 78, available at MAC.

This lipstick is a salmon-toned pink that makes for a cool statement lip that’s less expected than red, orange, or fuchsia. Additionally, pair it with a coat of mascara and you’re all set! Also, MAC Cosmetics has a wide range of pink lipsticks – check them out!

NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow in Kari, RM 120, available at NARS.

The matte finish of this rose NARS shadow is what keeps it from looking too pink on your lids (pink eye is not a good look!). Therefore, pair it with a soft brown over the crease and you’ve got yourself a smoldering look for a date night. Other than that, you can use this shadow for a quick flush on the cheeks.

Giorgio Armani Master Corrector Color Corrector in Pink, $40, available at Giorgio Armani.

This tube from Armani brightens dark under eye circles from fair-to-medium skin tones, making this product a huge hit. Plus, look at the packaging! It’s a wonder how anyone can even remember that this is a corrector and not a lip gloss?

Stila Stay All Day Lip Liner in Rosé, $20, available at Sephora.

I personally think that swiping lip liner all over the lips will make a huge difference on the look. Hence, you can swipe this rose-toned hue all over your lips for a dusty-pink pout, making your lips looking kissable!
