Swatches: Shiro Cosmetics Custom Lipgloss My Cat is My Valentine, Moon Prism Power & I Survived the Apocalypse and All I Got Was This Eyeshadow

Hey lovelies! I’m sure by now most of you know that Caitlin from Shiro Cosmetics does custom lipgloss, if not well you best crawl out from under that rock. XD You can turn any lip-safe shade into a custom lipgloss. You can even choose the opacity of your gloss, from sheer to moderate to opaque. I’ve only purchased a few, but they’re really nice and I like ‘em. So here are some swatches of mine.

Official Descriptions:
My Cat is My Valentine is a creamy light pink with bright white sparkles.
Moon Prism Power is a pale, lightly pinkish cream base, with a strong opalescent green shift and bright golden sparkle.
I Survived the Apocalypse and All I Got Was This Eyeshadow is a rosy champagne with lots of gold and silver sparks, very celebratory!

You will receive custom lipgloss in a 10-mL squeeze tube labeled with color name and opacity for $7.50. There is an added .50 ¢ charge for choosing the opaque option.

Also adding this little video so you can see how pretty they are.

Base Ingredients: hydrogenated polyisobutene, ethylene/propylene/styrene copolymer, butylene/ethylene/styrene copolymer, meadowfoam seed oil, cocoa butter, vitamin E. VEGAN

Overall I’m very pleased with the custom lipglosses! The formula is plush and creamy and only slightly sticky. I definitely recommend trying them out. You can find the listing here. You can contact Caitlin Here. Find Shiro on Facebook!

Swatches: Shiro Cosmetics Little Brother, Diamonds!, It’s Mossy! & Star-Crossed

Hello lovelies! I’m going to be swatching some of my Shiro Cosmetics for you! I put the free samples I’ve received into jars and swatched them. I’m hoping to get my custom glosses swatched next. :) For now I have Little Brother, Diamonds!, It’s Mossy! and Star-Crossed. I forgot that I’d swatched Star-Crossed before and only remembered after I’d finished editing my photos. XD Oops. So you get to see it again! I’ve mixed up the swatches a bit. When asked in my makeup group about the swatches people wanted to see the large round swatches over primer instead of glitter glue, so that’s what I did. :)

Official Descriptions:
Little Brother is a strongly metallic mid-toned silver.
Diamonds! is a sheer, super sparkly icy aqua-blue.
It’s Mossy! is a complex green-blue-grey, lightly metallic, over a black base.
Star-Crossed is a blackened coppery-brown.

Ordering options:
You will receive loose product in a 5g jar with a sifter, packed 2g by weight for $5.00.
You will receive loose product in a 3g jar with a sifter, packed 1g by weight for $3.50.
You will receive loose product in a 2×2″ baggie, packed ¼ by volume for $1.00.
Optional for It’s Mossy! and Diamonds!. You will receive loose product in a collector’s eddition square 5g jar without a sifter, packed 2g by weight for $8.50.

All photos taken indoors under a daylight bulb. Swatched over Madd Style Cosmetics Optimus Primer primer, Darling Girl Cosmetics Glitter Glue and bare skin.

Little Brother is a super silver… silver. XD

Ingredients: mica, carnauba wax, titanium dioxide, iron oxide. VEGAN


Diamonds! is a super glassy, sparkley, shiny aqua-blue shade with rainbow sparks. It’s on the sheer side but can be built up nicely.

Ingredients: mica, carnauba wax, titanium dioxide, iron oxide, tin oxide, calcium aluminum borosilicate, silica, ferric ferrocyanide. VEGAN


It’s Mossy! is a greyish foresty green that turns into a crazy metallic over primer/base.

Ingredients: mica, carnauba wax, titanium dioxide, iron oxide, tin oxide. VEGAN


Star-Crossed is a dark brown with a coppery sheen.

Ingredients: mica, carnauba wax, titanium dioxide, iron oxide, tin oxide. VEGAN


So these were free samples from a couple of orders. I emptied the baggies into some 5g jars that I have. The samples are really generous it filled up almost half of a 5g jar. You can contact Caitlin here. You can purchase from Shiro Cosmetics here. Find Shiro on Facebook!

PSA: Shiro Cosmetics

Since I’m sure most, if not all of you are familiar with Shiro Cosmetics, you may already know about the new and soon to be gone goodies. I really hope I spelled announcement right, it looks funny. Apparently spellcheck says it’s spelled right. Yay!

BUT ALSO: This is the 12th Color of the Month! So here’s one last chance to get alllll the old colors: ALL OF THE COLORS! Dudes, get them before they go away forever. D: Go, Go, Go!


[quote]The custom lipglosses now come in mess-free squeeze tubes! ^.^ If you’ve ordered a custom lipgloss that came in a jar, please email me with an order number and the number of glosses you ordered, and I’ll issue you a partial credit to be used on a future lipgloss order, as a “sorry for the messiness my bad” token. :) [/quote]

OMG, YES, YES, YES! I cannot tell you how amazingly happy I am for squeeze tubes. Seriously, I want Caitlin to have my babies now. :HEART: COME HERE MAMA! Also, you want to get Moon Prism Power as a gloss, no joke, lookit how amazing it is down there! :LOVE: Don’t forget that Moon Prism Power is one of the COTM shades(September), so if you want that baby as a lip gloss you better get your butt in gear and get that bish.

Swatches: Shiro Cosmetics Hallow’s Eve Collection 2012

Soooo. I’m a little late on uh swatching this collection. >.> But better late than never right? :D So this is the Hallow’s Eve Shiro Cosmetics Collection. Obviously this is inspired by The Nightmare Before Christmas. <3 I have Finkelstein, Ragdoll, Oogie Boogie and Pumpkin King eyeshadows. And there is a beautiful orange lip gloss called This is Halloween. It’s a kind of a rusty-red-orange gloss. It’s gorgeous. I love me some orange lippies and this one is at the top. :) It’s also flavored, chocolate pumpkin cheesecake. Om nom nom. Finkelstein is a lovely sheer sickeningly green with blue and purple sparks. Ragdoll is an almost faded rusty red with purple and blue sparks. Oogie Boogie is a grayed out zombie rising up out of a swamp green with green/blue sparks. Last but not least is Pumpkin King! It’s a sort of dark and dreary autumn forest with falling leaves on the ground with coppery moonlight sparkles. It’s a beautiful collection. >.> Too bad it’s not up anymore. *cough* I bit the dust on this post. T.T But here look at the pretties!

Finkelstein is a somewhat sheer, ultra-pale ghoulish green-yellow-grey with blue shimmer.
Ragdoll is a lightly faded rust matte base filled with lilac and blue sparkles.
Oogie Boogie is a swampy green-beige with a muted velvety finish.
Pumpkin King is a very blackened copper packed with orange sparkles.
This Is Halloween is a Medium shimmery red-orange. It is chocolate pumpkin cheesecake flavored.
