Lavender — the regal purple of fall has been adapted to a softer lighter lilac, feminine and romantic, and slightly mystical.
Rose Dust — a pale pinky blue, which is a welcome break from traditional neutrals.

Slate Gray — a cool and calming nuanced neutral and is a perfect pairing to lavender hues.

The Red Hues

Fuchsia Red –—Vibrant yet seductive, powerful and robust. Fresh and dazzling, fuchsia features heavily in nail polish and lipsticks too.

The Green Hues

Vibrant Green — a mossy mid-green which is bright but not harsh
Dark Citron — a calm, almost olive color which blends perfectly with this season’s lemon tones. Lucite Green — a clean, subtle, soft green which adds a slight shimmer


Super Lemon — brings a fun, optimistic outlook to the Palette
