Of the color, Lisa Eiseman, the executive director of Pantone Color Institute, said “Marsala enriches our mind, body and soul, exuding confidence and stability…a subtly seductive shade, one that draws us in.”

The best thing about this color is that it literally goes on anything and everything – lipstick, your curtains, your significant other, your bed sheets, your nails, whatever you can think of!
