Shiro cosmetics swatches and quick review

I recently made a purchase from Shiro Cosmetics. On Etsy I purchased 10 samples for $10 including shipping and I received an email later that night telling me it would be shipped out the next morning. I got them 2 days after so I was really happy with the shipping!

All my samples were in a cute little red bag with an attached card with a little thank you on it, she also included some business cards and 2 free samples in another baggie inside. Very cute packaging!


The samples themselves are in little baggies with their own sticker on them. Each sticker has color name, ingredients and whether it is lip safe or not. The samples are all 1/4th teaspoon which is a decent size, especially for the price of her samples.

Fun fact: my husband and I both play Pokemon all the time together. It's one of our geeky couple things and we freaking love it. The main reason I ordered these was so I could nerd out and show my husband these. Water Pokemon are my favorite ^_^ /fun fact.

These are nice and pigmented and a lot of the colors are creative. If you know what their namesake pokemon look like these actually really remind me of them. Such as Pikachu is yellow with red glitter- very fun colors!

In the below swatches from left to right:
Articuno-Pale, powdery silver-blue with plenty of shimmer and sparkle.
Rapidash-Ultra-pale creamy tangerine, loaded with red eye-safe glitter.
Spiritomb-Medium purple with bold green shimmer and eye-safe lime glitter (if you order you MUST get this- very original!)
Poliwrath-Deep, opaque, sparkly navy blue with a bit of an orange shimmer.
Steelix-Dark gray-green with a lighter green shimmer (gorgeous!)
Bulbasaur-Bright, opaque, shimmering grassy green with a hint of a gold undertone (great true shimmery green)
Sudowoodo- Perplexing earthy green-brown with subtle copper shimmer.
Vileplume- Gray-tinged magenta with green shimmer.
Wobbuffet-Opaque, medium-toned sky blue with the barest hint of pink shimmer.
Pikachu-Vivid, opaque, shimmering yellow with eye-safe red glitter sparks. (Very fun!)
Weepinbell-Shimmery chartreuse with subtle green sparkles. (While this color is beautiful, it isn't the most original)
Gengar-Dark purple-black with red eye-safe glitter (this was a free sample and I'm glad because this is lovely)
