Shiro Cosmetics’ Zelda / Shiro Cosmetics’ Princess

Shiro Cosmetics’ Zelda / Shiro Cosmetics’ Princess

This color is right on the boundary between a "pinked peach" and a "peachy pink". It's a slightly brighter color than Clefairy (another Shiro color), with a bit more peach. I also recently got Shiro's Mew, which looks to be a bit warmer. That may be the coal-pink that I thought this one might be. Zelda works well on me as a neutral shade, and as a neutral highlighter. I can use this in looks where I want a color...

This was the color I most wanted from the Auld Lang Syne collection. It also turned out to be the best color in the collection, in terms of pigmentation. This is definitely the standout of the set, with some similarities to Ringoffire (but no sparkle, and a bit cooler base tone and a slight blue sheen.)

Like many of the colors from the En Pointe collection, this color can be extremely soft. You might apply it and think, “Where's the rest? I barely see anything.” I've gotten best results applying this one damp - and always patting it on, never brushing it on (otherwise it all but disappears.) The pearl finish doesn't show up much when the color's applied dry, and it's faint when the color's applied damp. But this is a good softer accent color....
