New PANTONE Colors – Minion Yellow

The PANTONE Matching System is a proprietary system used in various industries, including fashion. It’s a color-matching system that allows different manufacturers to reference a PANTONE-numbered color when creating things. That way, designers, manufacturers, and printers all reference the same color.

Each year, new PANTONE colors are announced. In 2015, Minion Yellow joined the PANTONE Color list. Minion Yellow is based on the Minions from Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Despicable Me global film franchise.

This includes the upcoming prequel Minions. PANTONE Minion Yellow is an illuminating, energetic, friendly, fun-loving yellow shade that immediately calls out to you.

What is the Nex Code for Minions?

The Hex Code is #FFD55E.

  1. That is so great! I’m so glad to see those little guys got their own color. It’s a GREAT shade of yellow! P.S. Burt’s Bees lip balm is AWESOME. 

  2. This is so funny because my MIL literally painted her exterior door yellow and lets just say it looks awful!!  I’ll stick to the fashion trend! 

  3. Oh wow that’s a lot of great products. I’m pleasantly surprised that there is so many different types of products that are Minion Yellow.

  4. This looks like a fantastic product line to try. I would love to try the hand cream first. My hands are so dry since the winter.

  5. these sound fabulous. I remember my hair was always disgusting after visiting the beach so I am totally going to check out the Sea Spray. 

  6. I have recently heard of the Lavanila Laboratories The Healthy Fresh Vanilla Lemon Collection. I often thought
    I would love to try that because Lemon and Vanilla are so appealing. 

  7. You are the first person that has explained to me just what/how the Pantene colors are.  I have heard of them and the “newest” colors, but honestly had no idea.  I think the color is really pretty, but yellow isn’t a great color on me.
