Did you read that and hear U2 in your head? You’re welcome, if so 😉
Wrapping these today. Feels like my 700th batch of Watermelon soap - BB Watermelon Sugar FO. Still on the quest to find the combo of pinks I want. This isn’t it, either. I used 3 different pink parts: BB Magenta; BB Raspberry; and a mix of MM Sakura and MM Tickled Pink. I believe the Magenta is the one that turned more brownish than I wanted. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Yes! I did go straight to U2 in my head! :D
How about Trial by Fire - red? If you use a little less it will go pink.
 
I would try adding some of the red to the pink to get closer to what you are probably looking for. Which pinks do you have available to play with? VooDoo from Mad Micas might work. Rose pink from Nurture is also a very versatile pink. But the soaps really look great as they are to me!
