Shiro Cosmetics: Intertubes Swatches

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 27 - 2011

I only picked up three of the Shiro Cosmetics Intertube samples but now I know that I’m ok with the formula… I’ll be going back for more!

Leeroy Jenkins: Pale pinky-lavender with subtle blue interference and gold sparks

3 Wolf Moon: Dark, bold red

Sad Keanu: The type of purple that frightens little kids

And lip swatches… I’m not sure any of them suit me – will stick to the pinks next time!

You can see that each provides good coverage on the lips and can be worn more sheerly than I have above.  A couple of them were a touch gritty but this melted with the heat of my lips as I applied.

Shiro Cosmetics Intertubes are available to buy online from shirocosmetics.com

    I’m getting me some wolf moon!

    I think I’d vote no on Leeroy Jenkins, but 3 Wolf Moon and (surprisingly – who’d have thought bright purple could be so pretty?) Sad Keanu both look good on you. I bought the blue one (as well as Sad Keanu and 3 Wolf Moon) – I may at some stage post a picture just for giggles.

  3. Selina says:

    I love 3 Wolf Moon on you – it’s perfect with your colouring. I’m with Grace about Leeroy Jenkins, it’s a no; and I’m a bit on the fence about Sad Keanu.

  4. I was eyeing these online after you introduced me to Shiro cosmetics with your loose shadow post! I think they all look good on you, but especially the first one.

  5. 3 Wolf Moon looks gorgeous on you, and Sad Keanu is much more flattering on you than on me D:

  6. Claire says:

    3 Wolf Moon and Leeroy Jenkins look really lovely, like these a lot! How big are the sample pots? And thanks for introducing me to Shiro Cosmetics, I now just need to decide what to order :)

  7. Meeta says:

    Love 3 Wolf Moon the best and then Sad Keanu – looks it gorgeous with your eye look too!

  8. Robyn says:

    Sad Keanu and 3 Wolf Moon look amazing on you! I have Leeroy Jenkins and while I love the colour I don’t really know what to do with it, it’s very… *there* on my face if you know what I mean?

  9. ami says:

    Wolf moon looks lovely on you!

  10. Donna says:

    I thought Leeroy Jenkins looked best on you and then saw the first few comments, and thought maybe I need my eyes checked. lol I was glad to see that later commenters agreed that LJ looks good on you.

  11. reeree says:

    They all suit you (or is it that you pull off everything?)!

    Over 9000 is a lovely pink, I think it’d suit you really nicely :)

  12. Leah says:

    I’m gonna cite you when me and the fella divorce. ‘Charlotte kept tempting me with all these lovely goodies and I couldn’t resist buying them all.’ Hehehe. Just kidding, we’re not even married yet 😉

    3 Wolf Moon is gorgeous. Did you get stung for any customs charges at all?

  13. Emily says:

    I agree with all the above – 3 Wolf Moon looks great on you! (And what a great name.) I actually think you carry each of the colors. You’ve got the confidence for it.

  14. gio says:

    3 Wolf Moon looks gorgeous on you!

  15. Tiffany says:

    Ooh pretty! I’m liking Leeroy Jenkins and 3 World Moon on you!

  16. JMTolman says:

    Sad Keanu is the purple of my DREAMS. I know what I’m getting when my paycheck comes this Friday!

  17. FragrantWitch says:

    Hello 3 Wolf Moon! On the list it goes. The purple is surprisingly pretty for such a strong, potentially Halloween-y colour. Of course, it could just be that you rock!

  18. infraredflower says:

    Sad Keanu looks great on you! Especially with that eyeshadow… :)

  19. Paigest says:

    Are the lipsticks long lasting at all?

  20. Gemx says:

    I love 3 Wolf Moon on you! I have 5 intertubes and I love them, they do everything I want in a lip product including staining (I’m lazy at reapplying :P). I can recommend Yo Dawg and Over 3000 as gorgeous wearable colors :) xx
