I was really excited when Shiro Cosmetics released the new Science collection the other day. This particular collection was inspired by the game, Portal. I've never played Portal myself, but I'm familiar with it because my boyfriend really likes it. He was tickled when I told him about this collection and even helped me pick out which colors to get.
They got here REALLY fast. I placed my order the day they were released and they shipped the very next day. I've always found that Caitlin ships really quickly and everything is always packaged really nicely. This time I even got a couple pieces of Lychee candy :3 Anyway, on to the swatches! As always, these are swatched on top of a thin layer of Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy. I recommend clicking on these to enlarge them to really get the full effect!
My favorites are Because We Can, A Neat Gun, Shall Not Be Mourned, and Huge Success. It's hard to see in the photo, but Huge Success is a very bright silver with loads of multicolored sparkles. It's really really gorgeous. Shall Not Be Mourned looks nothing like the photo on the website, it's actually a dark bronze-y gold. It's finish is different than the others in that it's not sparkly, but really silky and has kind of a pearly look to it(The finish is very similar to Ganondorf from the Legends Collection). Because We Can is VERY bright! I don't know if you can tell how bright it is in the photos, but it is, and it's gorgeous. (Phyrra, if you're reading this, I hope you got this color because I thought of you when I swatched it.)
What do you guys think? I'm impressed, but I expected no less from Shiro. Let me know what colors you like, and if you plan to try any from this collection!
I'll leave you with this, the credits song from the first Portal game. You'll see where a few of the names came from just from this :) Beware, it WILL get stuck in your head!
Have a lovely evening!
