New PANTONE Colors – Minion Yellow

Last Updated on December 29, 2017 by Ellen Christian

The PANTONE Color Institute announced the newest PANTONE color – Minion Yellow. The PANTONE Matching System is a proprietary system used in a variety of industries including the fashion industry. Basically, 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. Product has been provided.

New PANTONE Colors – Minion Yellow

Each year, new PANTONE colors are announced and in 2015, Minion Yellow joins the PANTONE Color list. Minion Yellow is based on the Minions from Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Despicable Me global film franchise, including the upcoming prequel Minions. PANTONE Minion Yellow is an illuminating, energetic, friendly and fun-loving yellow shade that immediately calls out to you.

“Just as the sun’s rays enliven us, PANTONE Minion Yellow is a color that heightens awareness and creates clarity, lighting the way to the intelligence, originality and resourcefulness of an open mind—the color of hope, joy and optimism.” says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director, PANTONE Color Institute.

  1. I think I would like to try the hand cream. I am always washing my hands, so they get dry!

  2. 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. 

  3. 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! 

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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. 

  7. I LOVE that pantone added minion yellow to their colours. It’s so smart. I’d try the sea spray from the products you have featured!

  8. 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. 

  9. those look like some awesome products! I’m going to have to check them out more very soon! 

  10. 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.
