Shiro Cosmetics’ Alpaca Picnic

This was the first color from the New Leaf Trio that caught my eye. It looked like it could be a multitask color: either eyeshadow or blush. It can be a blush, if I apply it with a lighter hand. Since I have similar-ish blushes, I prefer to keep using this one as an eyeshadow…but I'll admit, it is nice to have a blush that's this color of pink, that's more pigmented than most blushes.

A montage of three images: top left, close-up of the eyeshadow in the pot; top right, the eyeshadow mixed with water and applied to bare skin; bottom left, the eyeshadow applied dry over primer.
It took me a while to hear the pun in this name. I blame it on my then-current contract, which not only drove me straight up the flue, but whose team mascot was an alpaca puppet. (I kid you not.)
