Recommended Vendor List

Key Notes on Handheld Purchase Recommendations Below:

  • With the quick expansion of the colour analysis industry, inventory of handheld references has become an issue. If you choose to purchase from any of the vendors below, our advice would be to ensure they have inventory on hand for the date when you would like to receive your order by before ordering.
  • Carol Brailey does not work for or own any of the companies noted below. Any questions on inventory availability, products and/or shipping, please contact the appropriate vendor below. We do not support any queries on handheld purchases or take on responsibility of handheld purchase decisions. Carol Brailey (2319114 Ontario Ltd.) disclaims any liability or responsibility for your decision to engage with all or any of the vendors listed below.
  • Colour references are just guides. It is recommended to use all references you receive in conjunction with each other as all colours in each reference are aligned with the palette; you may find colours in one reference and not in the other.
  • It is not possible to fill a colour reference with every possible undertone, value and intensity of colours you may encounter for each colour palette. The way to use the reference would be to hold up the colour you are contemplating purchasing to the colours in the reference and ask yourself if it looks close to the colour(s) and/or is in the same family of colours and/or harmonizes with the colours and usually you will be able to tell if something is in a palette or not that way.
  • Products of the vendors listed below are foundationally based on the same colour analysis system we use (16 season system). The vendor you choose to order from below may have very slight differences in the methodology used to formulate their wallet to the colour analysis system we use. In our determination these differences are not material enough for the vendor not to be listed in the list below.
