Rainbow Palettes in our Strength, Power, Creativity, and Ambition hues make for easy transitions throughout the day.

We are excited to announce lipstick and gloss palettes that are hue specific, with a range of depths and vibrance for mixing or transitioning to a different look entirely.

You can tone down a color with a lipgloss, deepen a color with a lipstick, or brighten your lip color with the color that is a step down from your base color:

You can get creative with the palettes, utilizing them to create an ombre lip in your best hue tone:

Orrrr You can wear each color on its own, using the deeper tones for evening/special occasion and the light colors for everyday wear.

What does it all mean though, these words with numbers next to them….? What are ebhues codes and why do you have them?

These are all valid questions, as we know things can look a bit confusing with our new system, however what confuses now will serve as a way to make purchasing your BEST colors even easier for you.

Firstly, what do the words mean.

Strength is our yellow red hue. It is called Strength in the ebhues system as the infusion of yellow, an energy color, with the color red, a power color, creates a bold and decisive orange. Strength colors will often be in what many systems term “Spring” or “Autumn” colors as they are warm colors.

Power is our red hue. It is called Power in the ebhues system as red is most often equated with power, prowess, and boldness. Power is found in a wider range than Strength, with undertones of blue found in the “Summer” family, pure red undertones to be found in the “Winter” family, yellow undertones to be found in the “Spring” family, and orange undertones to be found in the “Autumn” family.

Creativity is our purple hue. It is called Creativity in the ebhues system as it is often equated with wealth or in this case, a wealth of imagination and unique approaches to common problems. Creativity is currently only offered in the palettes in what is called the “Autumn” family due to the nature of the color in regards to lip offerings.

Ambition is our purple red hue. It is called Ambition in the ebhues system as it is the marriage between power and creativity which offers a path to achieving one’s goal that others may miss or not take. Ambition is found in the same range as Power, so he has an option for every “season”.

So now that the word part of the equation that is ebhues is now explained, let’s talk about those numbers. While ebhues focuses on hue hangouts (those adjectives with the numbers next to them), we know that the seasonal terms are widely used and therefore have adapted them into our system for clients to better understand where they are in the scheme of the color world.

What we want to emphasize is the numbers over the season. We do this because, when we step away from the ease of generalizing people into groups, we will see the essence of reality is one size doesn’t fit all, or even most. Nothing has made this more clear than our work with makeup and color. What may look great on one person placed in a group does not translate exactly to looking great on another person in that group. It could be that the person does not exhibit the same personality as the other and therefore does not want such a color on them for personal reasons- thereby effecting how the color looks on them. It could just be that within that particular hue, the individual’s personal color tone needs a little more something something- whether it be more warmth or more coolness. No matter the reason, chances are you have put something on that theoretically should look good on you but looks lackluster or not as good as another color could look on you.

Our solution to this problem was to step away from general groups and instead create Hue zones for each Color grouping, so that an individual could focus on specific color groups in each color versus trying to merge one group that transcends color barriers and therefore leaves many options out for the individual that may offer them better options. For example, Blake wears Power 14 colors in her hue palette with great success, however her best Ambition colors are Ambition 31 colors. The approach allows for a person to find their best tones in each hue without the conflict of “stepping” out of a generalized group as you are your own color universe.

So when you find your best hue zone, for example Power 14, you can then find any and all colors in that zone by clicking on the tag in any of the products that are Power 14 or just by typing it into our search bar on our website. You will then see a list of colors to look through that are listed on our site. You can even go deeper with the code. For example, say you think Lavish is the best thing since sliced bread in your color palette. You can then type in “P14d2v”, the code found on each product under the ebhues Color Reference into the search bar and receive colors that are matches to that product in different forms. You can do this if you want a blush that matches your lipstick, or you just want that hue in every form because it is perfect for you in every way! Due to the new nature of this option, you may not find exact matches to every color at this time. If this is the case you can always request a color or you can look in the more generalized zone of P14 and use the Genus groupings to filter your results.

 

Whew! Now with that technical mumbo jumbo aside…. how about you go see which hue are you!
