Shiro Cosmetics’ Synchronous Fireflies

Shiro Cosmetics’ Synchronous Fireflies

Posted on Monday, at

Synchronous fireflies are one type of firefly. During the mass mating displays, the males actually do all flash at the same time, rather than all flashing at different times (not just once…but several times, but all together now.) There are regular viewing events, too - and looking at some of the videos, I see exactly where the color came from! This color can blend, but blending may take away the green and gold and leave the almost-blackened blue behind.

I love the base shade on this! It’s a very attractive turquoise-teal that is very intense, very bright. I’m less thrilled with how it looks when applied dry over primer: the base color loses a lot of its intensity, the color is uneven and almost sheer, and the gold is present, but it’s extremely subtle. When I want to use this, I plan ahead and lay down some glitter glue to enhance the blue.
