Shiro Cosmetics: Badger, Mushroom, Snake
Hey sports fans! I’m sure it will please some of you to know that I am still alive, although busy as all get out. I thought that juggling a full time graduate course load plus a job would be a piece of cake, but it’s turning out to be anything but. Now that I’ve managed to get my hours down at work, I should be able to stop simply treading water, and actually get some of my work done. That is, if I can ever figure out topics for the ten million papers I need to do.
Moving right along, I received a sweet little package from Claire today, including an eyeshadow trio that has been on my wishlist for quite some time: Badger-Mushroom-Snake by Shiro Cosmetics! (Wee!) Since this is just a trio, I could easily justify taking time out of my [insert expletive] schedule to whip up a few swatch photos.
Badger is a rich, dark, blackish brown with copper sparkle that bursts to life in sunlight.
Mushroom is a beautiful, metallic copper which plays off the sparkle in Badger.
Snake is an initially intimidating chartreuse with fine golden sparkle, but it’s actually quite wearable. This applies semi-sheer for the faint of heart, but is very easily buildable for more bold colour-lovers, thanks to Shiro’s creamy-smooth formula. You could layer it on top of NYX Jumbo Pencil in Lemon/Lime for even more kick.
In other Shiro news, if you haven’t caught on already, the Halloween 2012 collection dropped just a couple of days ago! Consisting of four eyeshadows and one lipgloss inspired by The Nightmare Before Christmas, this extremely wearable neutral collection comes with a bit of a kick (just take a look at Ragdoll – it’s gorgeous!). You can buy each piece individually, or in four different size combinations.
