Not *quite* a sheer color, though there’s more heft to the pink shimmer finish than to the pink-coral base shade. It’s a bit like Cupcake Frosting, Aye Aye Captain, and the other colors released in that wave: yes, the color is much more intense over a dark base; but it’s not whisper-pale when used on its own.

Shiro Cosmetics’ Corona

The first of two colors created and named for the solar eclipse happening in August 2017. The corona is the halo of light visible around the edges of the eclipse…and the color Corona is a blackened red with semi-visible flecks of gold. (The gold disappears upon application, though.) The application is smooth enough, and there’s enough of the colorant that the blackening isn’t too apparent, even when I blend the color out.
