Shiro Cosmetics: Legend of Zelda Eyeshadows Review What Else Do You Need In Life?!

It was LondonMUgirl who told me about Shiro Cosmetics , an Etsy seller of mineral pigments.

Pigments? Who cares right? Every Tom, Dick and Harry sells mineral pigments…yeah but how many do you know that has a whole collection dedicated to THE LEGEND OF ZELDA, bitches, and POKEMON!

The Legend of Zelda made my life as a kid. I was that geeky kid.


Mr C doesn’t understand Zelda and I don’t understand Final Fantasy so I guess we are even. Can you imagine what kind of costumes our children will have to endure?

He’s dressing up as Link!

No! Squall!*

*If you understand that exchange then you too, are a geek.

Anyway back to the pigments! I ordered 15 (sorry I’m missing images of 3 pigments I will add them later but I can’t spend another day under studio lights).


These are the mini sizes – they are generous, so don’t worry about the quantity!

One problem I did have……was with the tape. A bit sticky so all of my pots have a bit of residue. It’s something I know the seller can change easily so I hope she does switch to a different tape or masking tape which doesn’t leave stickies.


Ok my shades. I got Master Sword, Triforce (gold!) and Likelike:


Triforce is a gold triangle which I personally first encountered in The Phantom Hourglass on the DS. They’re really have to carry…just sayin’. Like like are disgusting worm like things, like that thing from Tremors. I think all of these colours are lovely.


I got a nice selection of greens – Kokiri Forest, Rupee and Link:


Kokiri Forest is that dull mossy green which does actually look like Kokiri Forest, but isn’t not the nicest green as a shadow. But the representation is correct!

Rupee’s come in different colours now, blue, red, yellow, green. I think this green is too light to represent ‘rupee’ but it’s a nice shadow shade.

Link is perfect, a lovely rich green.

You can see from the swatches that these shadows have a lovely texture and good pigmentation with no chalkiness:


Three more random shades – Temple of time, Midna and Majora’s Mask:


Temple of time is a beautiful cool shade, Midna is a grey-blue with little light blue sparkles quite nice, and Majora’s Mask is a pretty mid toned purple.



I also got 3 brown/neutral shades, Deku, Ganondorf and Epona:


Deku is a sparkly beige and Ganondorf is a gorgeous rich deep brown plum. Gorgeous! and Epona (Link’s horse I think) is a neutral beige.



These are the shades I got some baggy samples of:


I also have 3 of the blue shades, swatches to follow.

*OK I got it:


Overall, I am happy with the shades I bought. To be honest I don’t use loose pigments too much, I just find them too troublesome for every day wear but these pigments from Shiro come highly recommended; quality wise they are excellent and the range is so cute, so well thoughout out and pretty.
