Shiro Cosmetics’ Great British Makeup Box: Showstopper

Shiro Cosmetics’ Great British Makeup Box: Showstopper

Posted on Tuesday, at

The warm-neutral holiday set from Shiro. The other full box that I bought, Technical, has cooler-leaning neutrals. I don’t wear all of these items together, because they match nicely with each other but all-warm colors don’t do miracles for my coloring. They’re all very attractive colors, full pigmentation and good adhesion.

ColourPop’s Lippie Stix in Back Up

Part of the Matte X finish group. The color has been discontinued, but Party Foul is close. Sauce is more pink, a little less deep. Sitting Pretty, from the new Lux Lipstick line, looks like it’s in the same ballpark, but more saturated.

Some colors look better when they’re different from how they appear in the pot. This…is one of them, in my opinion. An aqua at the full strength that I see in the pot would have been a little too much for me, except as a liner. The much softer version is a little more usable.

Inglot’s 14 Eyeshadow

Nice shade, but it doesn’t look great on me. If it were just a tad deeper, or more brown than copper, it would work better with my coloring. It applies decently, and the pearl finish doesn’t completely blot out the underlying color, though it does soften it a bit.

This grey leans cool, even without the scattered blue shimmer, so it might not be a great choice for people with golden undertones. This is a softened version of Explicit, from the Stripped collection. It works well for me as an inner-lid accent shade, or a very subtle liner.
