Cosmic Sunshine| Color Spotlight
@_nikiica_ shines in Cosmic Sunshine.
May flowers are blooming, Fox Fam! All thanks to the sun coming back out to play after a rainy start to spring. If you need a little extra sunshine in your life, we have the perfect color spotlight for you! Cosmic Sunshine is one of my personal favorites, so read on to find out more about this sunny shade.
Cosmic Sunshine is a vibrant golden yellow, perfect for summer days and sunflower vibes. While it will turn out best on a light blonde base, it’s a bit more pigmented than you’d guess from looking at it. It can give a golden tint even to a more medium blonde base! As a warmer yellow, it feels a lot more natural in tone compared to Neon Moon which has a more cool, highlighter yellow cast.
Cosmic Sunshine has a golden/orangey undertone to it, so we wouldn’t want to mix it with colors that don’t play nicely with orange. Try to avoid mixing with smoky cool colors like Blue Jean Baby or Transylvania, since you could end up with a muddy color (considering blue and orange are opposites). While you could mix up a custom green shade using a Cosmic Sunshine base with a little bit of a brighter tone like Aquamarine or Poseidon, smokier tones might make a more muddy olive shade. But if that’s what you’re aiming for, more power to ya! Olive green has its own unique charm too!

Stuff to know about Cosmic Sunshine
While yellows are light tones overall, Cosmic Sunshine is super pigmented so it can sometimes last longer than you would expect. It will also appear more golden and warm on a warmer blonde base. When transitioning away from yellow, once it’s mostly faded out, it should be pretty easy to dye right over with any darker shade! However if you do want to strip it out entirely, we would always recommend using a color remover specifically for semi-permanent hair dye. Depending on how pigmented it still is, you would want to cover it with a highly pigmented color like Sunset Orange, Poison, Wrath, Virgin Pink, or even Aquamarine, for the best results!
