Shiro Cosmetics Review

As I'm sure many of you know, Shiro Cosmetics is a new site on Etsy, specializing in eyeshadow. I ordered the full sample set, which I think had 15 shadows at the time, and I got the 3 not included in the set as free samples (Butterfree, Rattata, Jigglypuff). 3 more colors have come out since then (Meowth, Sudowoodo, Gengar). My order got shipped out THE SAME DAY that I ordered it. I placed my order in the morning, and Caitlin messaged me on etsy to say she was shipping it that day. Now THAT is customer service! <3 I love how everything was packaged, very cute and neat. From left to right: Vulpix, Mew, Charmander, Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Acid Pikachu has awesome red glitter in it that these swatches don't show. Here it is over Pixie Epoxy so you can see the glitter better. From left to right: Squirtle, Butterfree, Jigglypuff, Zubat, Lance the Dragon Trainer, Team Rocket, Rattata From left to right: Mewtwo, Articuno, Articuno over PE, SS Anne, Brock the Rock, Hyperbeam, Hyperbeam over PE Articuno is awesome. It's like tin foil when you use it with PE, sooo cool! I love all the colors. They're unique and pretty, and definitely not repackaged. I can't wait to order the new colors, and I highly reccomend this new company. I can't wait for Caitlin to creat new, more complex colors, and maybe other products as well.

  12. I am rather silly, got carried away with Fyrinnae and Sassy and now I can't place my Shiro order for a while :(

    Also I may or may not have run out of room for my eyeshadow collection... it's not huge, but it's starting to overflow my little organiser (which originally had jewelry in it, haha).

  21. ...I swear, if you could see my face right now.

    The names are freakin' Pokémon inspired! =D And I don't know what it is, but the business cards look so cute.

    My no-buy is probably going to fail, haha.
