And I really thought this was chartreuse's year to shine.

Cool. I am, as usual, ahead of the times.

Etymology
Named in 1859 by Edward Chambers Nicholson after the Battle of Magenta, fought earlier that year in Magenta, Lombardy.

Secondary colors  were cool and all but now that the hipsters have heard them it's just a cloud of wannabes and posers. Tertiary colors are really where things are at.

It looks like crimson to me. Magenta is more purple-y.

My laser printer is monochrome.  Suck it, Pantone.

I'll never understand why a shampoo company has any say over popular colors.
 
2022-12-02 11:06:35 AM  
I can't afford that. :(
 
2022-12-02 11:06:36 AM  
Damn. We just had the new house painted. I'll have to give them a call and tell them I was told I now need to like magenta.
 
2022-12-02 11:07:46 AM  
Magenta is not a color. Nor are chartreuse, teal, or puce. Only people afflicted with color-blindness, like me, know this inner truth.
 
2022-12-02 11:08:00 AM  
Ultra high-end appliance makers release Pantone color of the year pieces. A few years ago, rich people were paying at least $10,000 for Living Coral kitchen ranges. I can't imagine what they think about how it looks now.
 
2022-12-02 11:08:04 AM  
Red. It's red.

We painted our garage that color last year. The intention was to make it look like a barn, and we unlocked that achievement.

There's an antibiotic for that.

The Pantone colour of the year is a black box because you don't have a license to use it.

No, that's the R-C=C-R bond, not the R-C(=O)-R bond.

I prefer deep violet, but magenta is ok.

I would have gone with the famous blue check mark, but you do you.

Great! It'll be crimson and clover. Over and over.

Oh F that

Why use an accent color?

Nothing but rods and cones here people.  Nothing to see.

If your shiat is magenta, call the doctor immediately. Especially if you're pressing hard to shiat.

If you eat a lot of beets, it turns magenta.... I've heard.

My husband called me in a panic from work one time until I reminded him that we had roasted beets the previous evening.
