Shiro Cosmetics Indie Makeup Brand Review~

Sorry that I haven't been posting as frequently as I usually do- I've been a bit preoccupied with school things and other things and it's sort of blah
But in any case, I decided to write a somewhat overdue review today of the online makeup shop Shiro Cosmetics! They carry a lot of cool 'nerdy' makeup- mostly eyeshadows, but also some lip and face products. I say 'nerdy' because the collections are like "Game of Thrones" or "Harry Potter".
I heard a lot of good things about this company, so I decided to buy myself some items~ I like them a lot, so I decided to write a review! Let's start~

The items arrived neatly packaged, and sealed with a sticker that has the shop's logo on it.

Here's everything I got!

I'll start with the full sized eyeshadows- I got 2~ They were $6 each, and you get 2 grams of product.

This shadow is from the Hunger Games collection, and is a really pretty super sparkly pink. Because it's sparkly though, there's sometimes a bit of fallout, but it's not too bad if you use a good primer underneath, or one specially formulated for glittery eyeshadows.

Canine Help You?
I love this color so much! <3 Partially because animal crossing, partially because it's a really pretty color. It's mostly matte, but it does have a bit of a metallic look to it in certain lighting.
Mini sized shadows! These are $3.50 each, and contain 1 gram of product.
The Wandering Wizard and Master of Whisperers
The wandering wizard is from the Hobbit collection, and is a matte, ashy grey blue. Not much else to say about it I guess, hehe.
Master of Whisperers is amazing, ohmygosh. It's from the Game of Thrones collection, and I really wish I had gotten the full size... because ohmygosh. It looks light lilac, but has a really gorgeous gold sheen to it, and it's just the most perfect color ever. I am most definitely going to repurchase this when I run out- and I suspect I will run out soon given how much I'm using it.
They also kindly included two eyeshadow samples! ^.^
You Know Nothing and Alpaca Picnic
You Know Nothing is from the Game of Thrones collection, and is a really pretty sparkly, slightly blue white shimmery color. It's gorgeous as a highlighter- I quite like it!
Alpaca Picnic is, of course, from the Animal Crossing collection, and I love it so much <3 It's a really pretty metallic pinkish color, and it just looks so pretty! I might have to buy a bigger one when this runs out :3
And here are all the eyeshadows swatched on my arm~
From left to right:
Wildflowers, Canine Help You, Master of Whisperers, Wandering Wizard,  Alpaca Picnic, You Know Nothing
All of these are really pigmented, and I think they look very nice!

Next, I purchased a tinted lip balm, because they had Studio Ghibli inspired ones! I love Studio Ghibli films, so I just had to get the Kiki's Delivery Service themed one c: This was $5
A Girl and a Cat
The color of this is a quite pretty, sheer berry color. It smells of vanilla, and it melts really easily onto the lips (because of its low melting point, be careful not to leave it in a hot car or purse! It might melt!) The only complaint I have about this product is that it feels a bit grainy when I apply it- I'm not sure why that is. It's not much of a bother though~
Here's how it looks on my lips!
I've been loving darkish lip colors lately, so this is quite nice over a dark lipstick or lipliner~

Overall, I'm really happy with everything that I got from Shiro Cosmetics! The quality is great, everything is hand made, and I think it's very affordable given the quality! The only thing which I'm not a fan of is that the eyeshadows are loose- I myself prefer eyeshadows in pans, but I suppose you could do that yourself if you really wanted. I highly recommend this shop~
Thank you for reading!
