The final item I have to share with you from the SEPHORA + PANTONE UNIVERSE 2015 Colour of the Year Marsala 18-1438 Capsule Collection is the Cooling Marsala Multi Stick ($25 US/$32 CAD). This is really neat product. It’s a lightly-pigmented cooling balm cools that contains caffeine and coconut oil to add moisture while de-puffing and cooling on contact for immediate skin relief. It gives a sheer wash of the Marsala hue with subtle shimmer.
The exterior packaging features a transparent marsala ombre effect. It is really quite lovely. Things get even prettier when you open up the exterior packaging to reveal the product packaging itself. All the products in the collection are housed in palettes that have either a gold finish or rose gold (one might call it marsala tinged gold) finish. I’m not sure whether the variation in tone of the gold packaging was intentional or not but the Cooling Marsala Multi Stick has more standard gold toned packaging while the eye palette and liner for instance have the more marsala tinged gold finish.
The cheek stick blends really nicely onto the skin and I love the cooling effect. It feels so nice. I was worried when I first looked at the shade in the stick but the transparent, sheer effect gives just the gentlest hint of Marsala that is flattering on even my fair skin.
