Shiro Cosmetics’ Legends collection

Names all based on the Legend of Zelda game, which I’ve never actually played…but I’m on the fringes of videogame-geek circles so I know who Link is and why one color name is Ocarina.

Master Sword, Majora's Mask, and Puzzle Cube have a lot of sparkle - so you'll definitely want to use a base and possibly a sealant with them.

I found a few colors that reminded me of others, now departed, so this is a good chance to get colors if you missed out on the originals:

  • Deku: similar to Sorette, but richer and more pigmented
  • Farore's Wind: similar to Ride the Wave, but definitely more pigmented
  • Majora's Mask: similar to Bluemonday, but with sparkles
  • Moosh: similar to Destinationunknown, but with less fallout
  • Puzzle Cube: similar to Whiteriot
  • Rupee: similar to Blisstified, but a little deeper and more pigmented
  • Triforce: base color reminds me of Deathvalley
