Shiro Cosmetics’ Recipes for Human Food collection

Released on July 1, which means I have not yet received the colors from this collection that I ordered. I’ve had good success with the previous two “oops” collections from Shiro, though, so I’m looking forward to getting my order. I think this is the fourth “oops” collection from Shiro: there was “I Don’t Know What I’m Doing” back in 2013, the Valentine’s Derps in 2016, and “Hold My Beer” just last year. These collections are always limited edition, and some colors run out faster than others.

Caitlin got these color names from a neural network-generated list of recipes. Some just sound like random words thrown together, but I can see some of these recipe titles being used unironically in some 1950s cookbook where half the dishes are "something in aspic". Some of these colors looked interesting, but bearing in mind that I haven't had time to use all of the colors from Caitlin's Hold My Beer collection yet...I only ordered six of these colors. (They haven't yet arrived, hence no swatch photos.)

This collection contained:

  • Artichoke Gelatin Dogs — medium forest green with gold and silver shimmer
  • Basil Balls of Bean Bread — metallic medium-khaki shimmer
  • Beasy Mist — medium mauve-lilac satin
  • Cabbage Pot Cookies — greenish silver-grey with copper shimmer
  • Cheese Salad in Cheese Sauce — medium camel-brown with copper and bronze shimmer
  • Chocolate Chops and Chocolate Chips — blackened dark brown with gold and copper shimmer
  • Completely Meat Circle — metallic warm red shimmer
  • Crimm Grunk Garlic Cleas — steel-green with gold and silver sparkle
  • Crockpot Cold Water — indigo-charcoal shimmer
  • Curried Cream Corn Cookies — golden-beige with scattered rainbow shimmer
  • Export Bean Spoons — blackened eggplant with blue-green shimmer
  • Green Baked Stuff — vibrant teal with aqua sparkle
  • Salmon Beef Style Chicken Bottom — grey-based violet-pink shimmer
  • Swamp Peef and Cheese — peach-gold sparkle

I'm currently awaiting arrival of Beasy Mist, Cabbage Pot Cookies, Chocolate Chops and Chocolate Chips, Completely Meat Circle, Curried Cream Corn Cookkies, Greek Baked Stuff, and Swamp Peef and Cheese.
