Here's my first Shiro Cosmetics haul.
I purchased these samples a couple of months ago on Etsy because I loved how each color is inspired by Pokemon! I'm such a nerd sometimes.
For details, click on images to enlarge. :)

13 more colors have been released since I placed an order, so I don't have Budew, Gyarados, Magneton, Moltres, Poliwrath, Porygon, Rapidash, Spinarak, Spiritomb, Steelix, Vileplume, Weepinbell, or Wobbuffet yet.
Caitlin, owner of Shiro Cosmetics, is super nice and friendly. I was really impressed when my order shipped the same day! The products came neatly packed in a red organza bag. Each sample contains a GENEROUS 1/4 tsp of product in a small resealable baggie.
The prices are very affordable. Each sample (1/4 tsp in a baggie) costs $1. A mini size (1g in a 3g jar) costs $3. And a full size (2g in a 5g jar) costs $5. What a great value!
And the quality? Amazing! Each eyeshadow is highly pigmented, vibrant, and very wearable. They apply smoothly and blend easily. With a good primer, they last all day without any creasing.
Would I buy from Shiro Cosmetics again? YES! In fact, I can't wait for Caitlin's next collection. I want to collect them all! Hopefully, Caitlin will have another great sale later, so I can purchase a mini or a full size of each color. :)
So, have you tried Shiro Cosmetics yet? If so, what are your favorite colors?
