This was another gift from Sirvinya, who is pretty much my supplier of All Things Sleek - I asked her to pick me up a palette, both because it was going to have a very short run and because the palette could not be shipped to the US or Canada. When I started seeing photos of this palette, the colors in the lower row caught my eye first: intense primaries almost straight down the line. Northern looked like a color I’d use often. I wasn’t so sure about the other five shades, but could probably use at least half of the remaining five as highlighter shades.
Once I got the palette and had a chance to swatch it, my favorites ended up being Northern (the rich-looking navy), Hammersmith and City, and Circle. I do like Circle and Victoria, I just find myself using them less frequently. District is a color I could probably use more, but I'm still in a mental rut when it comes to greens: I'll reach for the jeweltones and muted colors, but don't often reach for the brights, not even if they're cooler bright greens.
