- Flame Scarlet– burning bright, Flame Scarlet exudes confidence and determination. Good for gals with dark skin, dark hair or people with warm skin tones.
- Pungent Saffron adds a flavorful brilliance to the palette. Great on redheads, brunettes. Not so much on blondes or gals with gray hair. This is a color that works best in small amounts.
- Coral Pink wraps you up in a warm and welcoming embrace. Good on most, but difficult for pink complexions.
- Classic Blue A boundless blue hue, Classic Blue is evocative of the vast and infinite evening sky opening us up to a world of possibilities. My favorite and good on just about everyone.

- A savory herbal green, Chive imparts a healthy and restorative harmony. Great on ladies with green eyes, blondes or brunettes. Terrible on gals with sallow or olive complexions.
- Faded Denim, a relatable and dependable blue conveys comfort and ease. Fabulous on ladies with blue eyes. Not so good on sallow or dark complexions.
- Piquant Orange Peel introduces a tasteful tang which means a little goes a long way. Orange means caution!
- The teal Mosaic Blue displays an air of mystique, grace and depth of feeling. This color is a dandy and flatters everyone.

- Cinnamon Stick is sweet yet spicy and can look great on many. Caution should be used by those who have a lot of pink in their skin.
- GrapeCompote is a composite of mysterious and mellow purple shades. This color is another winner and can be worn by most.
