I Survived the Apocalypse, Moon Prism Power & My Cat is My Valentine Custom Lip Gloss

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

||||| Like It 1 Like it! |||||

disclosure-purchased-by-me

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!

Little Brother, Diamonds!, It's Mossy! & Star-Crossed over primer

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

||||| Like It 1 Like it! |||||

disclosure-purchased-by-me

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

line

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

line

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

line

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

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

line

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!
