Shadow Review

Fyrinnae Dinosaur Plusie - an intensely sparkly/glittery sheer eyeshadow. It has a strong lavender shift on a sheer silver base. This shade is a total glitter bomb and needs a super sticky base like Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy. It's super pretty on top of a black base. This was one of the first eye shadows I ever pressed and I think I messed it up a little. It's still usable, but it's kind of flaky. I don't think that's a problem with the eye shadow itself, though.

Shiro Smell Ya Later - a satin/shimmer finish cool toned purple. This is very pretty over primer or a white base.

Shiro Elite Four - A more intense cool toned purple. I love to use this in the outer corner or to blend out the crease. It has a little bit of glitter but it's discreet.

Shiro Alkahestry - This one is amazing, and it's one of my top 5 favorite eye shadows. I use it a lot. It's a super shimmery, but not glittery, blurple. It goes on purple but has a strong blue duo chrome. It needs a sticky base like NYX Milk or Black Bean or Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy, otherwise it disappears.

Shiro I'll Move That for You - They weren't kidding when they called this a blackened purple. This shade is dark, but it's definitely purple. Again it's cool toned and is most vibrant over Pixie Epoxy.

Shiro Are You Shear You Want to Enchant That? -  This is a very pretty muted plum color. It's warmer than the others I have and has aqua glitter. It looks good any way you use it.

Shiro Chimera - This is supposed to be a taupe color but I found that when I pressed my samples it took on more of a plum based greige. It's shimmery and a little more ruddy/plum than Enchant That.

Shiro Badger - This is another one of those colors that shifted on me a little with pressing. Its plum undertones came forward through the brown. This is a very dark color that is warm-toned.

Shiro Master of Whispers - This shade is absolutely gorgeous! It's a delicate somewhat sheer lilac and gold duo chrome. It really needs a sticky base to shine, but if you wanted a sheer wash this would be lovely. It's just such a pretty color and it glows in the light, but doesn't have any glitter. Putting it over a white base makes the lavender pop.

Shiro Mother of Dragons - This shade is so complex and hard to describe. It's a shimmery warm red based plum with a strong silver/aqua duo chrome. It applies equally well no matter what base it's on.
