Do you remember what this year’s Pantone Color of the Year is? If not, great, because Pantone just announced next year’s shade, which is where you should focus all your attention. Pantone’s 2019 Color of the Year is 16-1546! But you can call it Living Coral!

According to the Pantone Color Institute, Living Coral is “an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.” If that doesn’t paint a clear enough picture for you, you can watch this nine-second video of a fish in Living Coral calmly hovering next to an actual living coral. Or you can just start browsing a bunch of beauty products (I did both.)

According to Pantone, Living Coral is a “vibrant, yet mellow” orange-pink. Almost every beauty product that has “universally flattering” or “flushed” in its description comes in the shade. Living Coral is that lipstick that’s cheerfully bright, but not too bright. It’s that blush that makes it look like blood is coursing through your veins, but in a healthy way, and at a completely normal speed. Here, 11 beauty products that already come in Living Coral so you’ll be well-prepared and life-affirmed for 2019.
