Shiro Cosmetics! (swatches!)

I finally ordered from Shiro! Woot! I've been meaning to for a really long time now, and since I sold a couple things this past week I was finally able to pick up a few things. Can I just say that I think Pokemon eyeshadow is the coolest thing EVAR? You could say I like Pokemon..I mean I think I'm going to be Oddish for Halloween. Check out my Meowth, Gengar, Pikachu and Raichu pendants. Yeah..I'm a fan. I ordered on Thursday and received everything Monday! I'm pretty sure it was shipped the same day I ordered, which is pretty impressive. I always appreciate quick shipping. Look how cute everything was wrapped!

What I bought was 5 mini jars of Spinarak (liight light shimmery green), Sudowoodo(medium brown with a bit of green/gray to it), S.S. Anne(gorgeous bronz-y brown), Budew(green with a gold shimmer) and Articuno(super shimmery light powder blue). I also got a full size of Meowth which is a beautiful shimmery off-white. I'm really glad I got a full size of it because it's really pretty and versatile. I received 3 free samples of Dunsparce(light yellow with pink sparks), Jigglypuff(shimmery pinkish lavender), and Magneton(super sparkly dark blue/purple). They all came with sifters. I used to hate sifters until I spilled one of my favorite Fyrinnae colors all in my car. Now they're my best friend. >.>

I poured one of the free samples I got (Dunsparce) into a jar, partly to see how much I got but also because I hate how messy they are in the baggies. Look how much product come with the baggie samples! That's a lot! I'm definitely going to be ordering some of these!

I did a look using the more neutral colors I got. This is using Sudowoodo on the crease, SS Anne on the outer half of the lid, Meowth on the inner half of the lid, and Spinarak on the lower lashline.Love! These are really, really great eyeshadows I definitely recommend them. Not to mention amazing customer service..I'll definitely be buying from Shiro again.

I love you, readers! Here are your swatches! ^-^ I definitely recommend full sizing the image since there are so many squished together on my arm. My favorites are Spinarak, Meowth, and Jigglypuff! :)

Tried Shiro yet? What do you think? I'm curious to know what colors you guys recommend! ^-^

  6. Thanks for the review! <3 I hate sifters too, so I didn't use them when my business first opened... That changed awfully fast, when the very first person who ever ordered from me sent me a conversation to let me know that one of the jars opened in the post. x_x I tried taping them for a while after that, then finally just transitioned to sifters. More annoying, IMO, but also more sanitary and less likely to barf eyeshadow everywhere. I thought it was a reasonable trade. :P

  10. I ordered Rattata (AMAZING rich blue violet) and Porygon (a lovely pink!) and got samples of Shaymin and Gyarados. Gyarados is a wild color, really really intense cobalt blue, it's marvelous. Porygon probably goes on the easiest and is a vibrant pink without being too obnoxious. Rattata for some reason seems to take me longer to put on evenly but it's so worth it because the color is the best ever. I have yet to try shaymin yet, haha. For the record I use these exclusively as lower lash liner, not as eyeshadow as they are technically intended :P really love the colors and like you said the customer service was great! I'm glad you got a dunsparce sample because I was thinking about it but wasn't sure how it would look. That and budew look like they'll be my next purchase :)

  11. @Caitlin: Oh yes, DEFINITELY a reasonable trade haha in the end, sifters are better. I learned that the hard way. And I mean, if someone really hates them that much they can just take them out. I won't be doing that though, I don't want to spill any of my pretties! :D

    @Emily: no problem! Budew is soooo pretty I'm so glad I got it because I don't have very many greens.

    @Painted Moogle: Thanks! And yes, they do :)

    @Kimberly: Yes, she is!

    Julia: I bet Gyarados would be an AWESOME liner color, I might get a sample of that next time. Rattata and Porygon were already on my list ^-^ Thanks for sharing!
