Shiro Cosmetics Review: Science Collection Part 2

Not gonna lie, instead of typing Wheeeeeee! out, I'm gonna be copy-pasting, because I'm not sure how many e's there are and I don't feel like counting. Also, when I was doing Aperture Laboratories I heard Dexter's weird little accent in my mind saying "la-BORE-uh-tore-ee".

The Shiro Science Collection is made up of 30 shadows inspired by the game Portal. Of the shadows that I've tried from Shiro, most of them were very smooth. All of them wore and blended well. I really like, by the way, that you can get both full sizes and minis. I never use up eyeshadow, so smaller sizes are just more realistic for me to have.

Unsatisfactory Mark was ultrapigmented, but a bit dry. I adore the intensity, though. Whee is redder than Because We Can, which is actually a hot pink in the fuchsia family, but it's a little bit difficult to tell here. [Subject Name Here] has the most wonderful, ultrasmooth non-chalky texture, which is always so wonderful to see from such a light shade.

Swept out, they look like this:

As you can see, Unsatisfactory Mark worked much more nicely for me swept out than patted on, which is just as well. It's an ultra sexy red! Wheeeeeee! is a shimmery-er, warmer pink than Because We Can. As an avid purple lover, I fell immediately in love with Reverse Psychology. I don't have anything else that's this periwinkle. Yay!

My favorite one of these when foiled has to be Are You Still There?, because it's just such a lovely burgundy/maroon.

On to the colors:
[Subject Name Here] is a lovely white-based pale, gilded, orange-y yellow.
Test Subject is a slightly bronze-y orange.
Incinerator is red with white sparkle.
Are You Still There is a deep maroon/burgundy shade with silver shimmer.
Unsatisfactory Mark is a ridiculously sexy, ultrapigmented red. It was a bit dry, but it wasn't difficult to use.
Because We Can is a lovely fuchsia pink with silver shimmer.
Wheeeeeee! is a warmer yellow-based pink with gold shimmer.
Reverse Psychology is a pretty periwinkle. There's some bronze looking sparkle in this, but you have to look closely. You don't want to look at the vignette of this color. It's awful and not very funny at all.
Emancipation Grid is a greyed, warm-ish light blue.
A Neat Gun is a deep greyed blue with orange shimmer. Think Thinking With Portals in reverse.

Reverse Psycology and Emancipation Grid are not lip safe.

For some reason both A Neat Gun and Wheeeeeee! were very difficult for me to get even in lip application, though there weren't any such problems in eye application. Both Unsatisfactory Mark and Because We Can are stunning lip shades. I want matte lipsticks in these exact colors, now. Anyone have recommendations?

The Good:
  • I like the colors. My favorites here... there are a lot of them, actually. Incinerator, Are You Still There?, Because We Can, Reverse Psychology and Unsatisfactory Mark are really pretty!
  • There are multiple sizes available.
  • The texture was smooth, for the most part (except Your Best Friend).
The Bad:
Nothing here.

The Neutral:
  • Unsatisfactory Mark is slightly dry.
Overall, I wouldn't have trouble recommending any of these shades. They wear well, blend well, feel nice and are priced well, too.

The Shiro Science Collection is currently available at Shiro Cosmetics' website. Samples are $1 (1/4 tsp in a 2x2 baggie), minis (3 gram sifter jar) are $3 and full sizes (5 gram sifter jar) are $5. Value sets are also available.
