Ladies of Gaming : Princess Peach

Hey there everyone! It's Sharon from Hello There, Blondie! and I'm here bringing you another episode of  the Ladies of Gaming series! She's a fabulous princess with a flair for drama, I bring you Princess Peach!

Princess Peach, aka Princess Toadstool, is easily one of of the most recognizable female video game characters on the planet.  If you know Mario, you know of his princess. And she is -always- in another castle :P


Originally, our Princess Peach had red hair in Donkey Kong.But she soon changed it to blonde, and we all know it's from a bottle ;) Here is my evidence!
*see foot note
"No one will ever know, la la la!"

Except us, Peach. Except us.
Princess Peach appears in many of the Mario spin off games, as well as in her own game on the Nintendo DS, Super Princess Peach,  which I played, and loved it! She is the Princess of the Mushroom Kingdom. She appeared on Forbes most wealthy list, and is the love interest of Mario. I personally like Luigi better... but I have a thing for tall men. All of her outfits are centered around pink, white, gold and sapphire. There is a ruby on her crown, but just the one. She is perky, sweet, graceful, but in her own game she is just a tad over emotional. I blame Mario. She is one of the most popular to play in the multiplayer games, and I personally love her despite her frequent Damsel in Distressing.

The Look:

Eyeshadows : Brazen's Spectacle , Geek Chic Cosmetics Companion Cute, Geek Chic Cosmetics Brony on top of that with Darling Girl Cosmetics' Princess Peach to blend and highlight. ( a favorite highlight shade of mine )
Eyeliner : Physicians Formula Eye Booster 2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner in Ultra Black
Waterline: Urban Decay 24/7 Pencil in Electric with Geek Chic Cosmetics Portal Blue eyeshadow patted on top of it
Lipstick : Quite possibly my favorite lipstick ever, MAC's Pink Popcorn ( reviewed here )

I hope you liked it! I personally love a yellow-pink combo, and the bright blue lasted all day AND night on the waterline! <3

Thanks for reading!
xoxo -Sharon

(*disclaimer - I know that isn't actually Peach in Donkey Kong, but I personally think that Mario is a one woman man. So since she didn't want to be know as the red headed girl, she gave him a fake name, changed her hair color, and came back to woo him again )
