Shiro Cosmetics’ Color of the Month / High Scores collection

In 2012, Shiro Cosmetics began releasing a color of the month every month. Customers would vote on the selections on Facebook. The colors were available for one month, and then were gone. In 2015, Shiro opened its High Scores collection - which made the three best-selling shades available permanently. In June, final quantities of all colors from the previous year are available again for one month…and the three best sellers go on to join the High Scores collection.

I don’t own every single Color of the Month. Some don’t appeal to me, a few come and go before I’m able to either get the spare cash, or I’m busy with other things and I don’t notice that a month has passed. But I sure do own quite a few of them…

I had most of the colors identified, but got some assistance from other Shiro fans with a handful. Thanks for thegadaboutgirl (July 2012 and April 2013) and montycuddles (January and April 2016 and March 2017) for their help! It's a little scary to notice that I have all but 14 of the COTM shades.
