When the colors pink and purple are mixed together, the resulting color is a magenta or light plum color. The new color's hue depends on the amount of purple and pink used in the mixture.
Both pink and purple have red as one of the original hues used to create the colors. Pink is red mixed with white, and purple is the mixture of red and blue. Since red is a base color, the new mixture is still a type of pink or purple. The new color is most likely to fall between red and violet on the color wheel.
