Shiro Cosmetics: Halloween 2012
My order from Shiro Cosmetics just arrived, in almost no time at all. Best turn around time in the business, I tell you. Without further ado, here is the Halloween 2012 Collection!
I ordered Option 3: Mini Eyeshadows with a full-size lipgloss. Only full-size eyeshadows come with the top label, which is certainly super spiffy, especially if you’re a packaging nut. But I generally go for minis because it’s pretty much all I’ll ever need.
All swatches taken over Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion. Finkelstein and Oogie Boogie are shown with a strip of black base at the bottom. Pumpkin King and Ragdoll are shown with a strip of Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy at the bottom.
FINKELSTEIN is a sheer creamy white with turquoise sparkle, and an intense aqua sheen. Can easily be worn alone, but dark bases will really make it scream.
OOGIE BOOGIE is military drab green with a bit of a gold undertone in certain light, and a smooth, velvety finish.
PUMPKIN KING is a faintly brown-tinged black, with orange sparkle and a coppery sheen. This one definitely benefits from a glitter adhesive.
RAGDOLL Is a squash orange with an unexpected punch of pink lilac and turquoise shimmer. This one looks dead gorgeous over a glitter adhesive.
THIS IS HALLOWEEN is a rusty, reddish orange gloss with ultra-fine golden shimmer, with a light pumpkin cheesecake flavour.
The formula is very nice, smooth, and creamy – not at all sticky like big box glosses, or oily like some other indie glosses. It wears and feels a bit like a liquid lipstick, but is much thinner in viscosity, allowing the wearer to build their own preferred level of opacity. I believe this is Shiro’s first lipgloss offering, and it is a very impressive opening act!
Bonus: October Color Of The Month!
Not a part of the Halloween collection, but it is available for the month of October Only: Nic Cage Raking Leaves on a Brisk October Afternoon! Yaaaay! It’s a warm, medium-brown with insane amounts of fine red and gold shimmer. It is, like its namesake, completely over the top!
