These colors do not say "summer" to me. The beige color made me look like I was missing a fingernail because it was so close to the color of my skin. I didn't love the type of shimmer in it, either. It wore pretty well, which prolonged how long I wore the colors that I wasn't wild about. I gave away the taupe to a colleague who has more of an olive skin tone. I see myself wearing the blue and purple more often in the fall, as these colors seem much more appropriate for that season than they do for summer.
