I follow several beauty bloggers that feature indie (independent) cosmetics companies and their products, and one of the companies that gets rave reviews is http://www.shirocosmetics.com/. I have ordered from them /viz/shiro-cosmetics-intertubes-haul
/viz/shiro-cosmetics-eyeshadow-swatches, and loved the products I received. So when I found out that they had released some http://www.shirocosmetics.com/pages/intertubes.htm/, I had to get at least a couple of the colours! So that`s what I did. =) Here is what I received:
- Intertube in Ridiculously Photogenic: This shade is described as a deepened fuchsia. I LOVE fuchsia so it is only natural that I love this lippie! For those of you who don`t know the name of this Intertube is based off of http://www.nydailynews.com/blogs/running_dialogue/2012/04/did-ridiculously-photogenic-guy-zeddie-little-jump-on-his-own-viral-bandwag meme.
- Intertube in Why Not Zoidberg?: This shade is described as a bright coral. I love that they named it after Zoidberg, and this colour definitely reminds me of him. XD
- Eyeshadow in Champion [free sample]: I love the description from the website, so here it is - A color worthy of trainer Red, the champion of Kanto and acknowledged strongest trainer in the world. Until Gold came along. Pure bold crimson with light shimmer. Lip-safe!
- Eyeshadow in Master Ball [free sample]: This one looks a LOT different from the photo on the website, so I think it might be mislabeled. Here is the description from the website, anyways - Basically the best item ever. I recommend using it on a Pidgey or something of the sort in order to perplex and enrage your friends. Shimmery red-toned purple. Lip-safe![note: I`d say this is more of a violet or blue-toned purple]
FYI: I swatched the eyeshadows over s Sephora primer that is way too orange for my skin. That is why my skin tone looks weird in the photo, lol. >.< One thing that I really appreciated is that my free eyeshadow samples were selected to somewhat match the Intertube shades I chose. I thought that was pretty nice! I am not sure what`s going on with the Master Ball sample (if it really IS Master Ball and not another shade), but oh well. Overall I am super happy with my order! It even included a couple of free Japanese candies, which aren`t pictured because I ate them already. XD Have you ever tried Shiro Cosmetics before?
