Shiro Cosmetics Intertubes review & swatches
I know the reviews for these have been making the rounds lately, but I thought I'd share my opinion on the new Shiro Cosmetics Intertubes from as well. First, swatches! I ordered Leeroy Jenkins and Yo Dawg, and got a free sample of Over 9000. Leeroy Jenkins- swiped once, twice, three times Yo Dawg- swiped once, twice, three times Over 9000- swiped once, twice, three times As you can see, these are somewhat sheer, but are definitely buildable. My favorite is Leeroy Jenkins, which I've been wearing a lot lately. Even though it's purple, it's very wearable, and this is coming from someone who rarely strays out of the rosy-mauve area. If I had to try and compare these to a normal lip product, I'd go with 'an extremely tinted balm'. They're moisturizing the way a balm is, but have enough color to equal a lipstick. For $6.50, it's well worth the price, and I'm definitely going to be ordering more colors in the future. I also got a full size of the shade Everything Is Bears, which is a dark brown with awesome gold sparkles. There was a similar shade from Morgana I bought a long time ago, which is now discontinued, so I decided to pick this one up. Have you ordered anything from Shiro recently? I'm dying to try Caitlin's new pressed blushes!
