The Pink Taffeta eye shadow is basically as described and the color online is pretty accurate. It is a very light pink, even lighter than Pretty in Pink, to the point of almost leaning towards white but still is slightly pink. It does have a light amount of shimmer/sparkle to it. It is a pretty shadow if you want a very light pink. I like the various pinks from Sterling for different looks and I do like this shadow. There are three shades of pink that I have - Opal Essence, which is the darker pink of the three. Next in line is Pretty in Pink, which is lighter but still looks pink on the eye and then there is Pink Taffeta, which is the lightest pink of the three. It is the most neutral of the three. I like each at different times. If you want a barely pink eye shadow with a light amount of shimmer, I think you might like this shadow. I do.
