Silk Naturals’ Astral

Similar to shadows like Orinoco or Zinnia (both from Aromaleigh v1), but a bit more color depth to the peach-pink base. On my skin (or on other fair cool-toned folks) this looks like a soft pinkish peach. On fair warm-toned folks it might look closer to a sheer wash of color, with the iridescent purple/blue shimmer finish. The base color is more visible applied over either a dark cream base (like black matte cream shadows) or over the deepest skintones - warm or cool - but I like the effects of wearing this over a dark liner shade. The dark shade beneath gives my eyes definition, while this color on top softens the definition just slightly and the purple emphasizes my eye color.
