Concrete Minerals’ Croma

A super-soft purple that is a pale pastel without being a washed-out shade. It does pair nicely with bolder brights (like <a href=”/such/obsessive/addictions/concrete_minerals_temptress/”>Temptress</a> or <a href=”/such/obsessive/addictions/concrete_minerals_unity/”>Unity</a> or <a href=”/such/obsessive/addictions/concrete_minerals_brat/”>Brat</a>) but it's fairly versatile. I've tried pairing this up with warmer browns and oranges, and haven't had tons of luck. I like it best when worn with neutral or cool browns, and I haven't yet figured out if I have any oranges that would genuinely look good paired with this color.
