Shiro Cosmetics’ Heart Attack

Shiro Cosmetics’ Heart Attack

I will grab any burgundy eye…anything. Liner, shadow, mascara - if it’s burgundy, I either have it or I want it. This is a bit on the warmer side, but it’s still burgundy! It’s been discontinued (along with the rest off this collection) but I had it in my sizable “to be swatched” backlog for years, so I haven’t swatched it until recently. It has (had) Shiro’s typical strong coverage and solid adhesion.

Color Club’s Burnt Out

Color Club’s Burnt Out

I have tried other warm-spectrum colorshift polishes, but the shift is usually nonexistent or fairly minimal. This shift is the most visible that I’ve ever tried. I managed to get a few bottles before it was gone-for-good; and according to Color Club, these polishes were small batches that would never be made again…so I’m glad that I have two bottles!

I have similar shades in my collection from other now-shuttered indie vendors.

This is the “neutral” shade of the collection. Works as a highlighter, but it’s got fairly solid color payoff, so it’s almost a better eyeshadow than highlighter. The sparkle isn’t a thick layer of glitter, just larger light-catching particles that (for me, at least) stay with the shadow without extra sealant.

Very autumnal! I have some similar shades in my collection, but no exact matches. Either there’s a little less saturation, or it leans more orange, or it’s a different finish and isn’t metallic. Of the four colors released in the Winter 2015 collection, this and Snowflake Waltz are the only ones still available for purchase.
