Hot Lips, Reviews - October 25th, 2013
When Shiro Cosmetics started doing custom lipgloss, where you can order lipgloss in any lip-safe Shiro eyeshadow color, I squealed. I really did. The real conundrum was which ones to order first? I want so many…
I ordered two colors, Cake! and Fullmetal. I wanted a sheer gold-y color, because I’m kind of addicted to sheer gold-y colors. Cake! is described as pale cream with soft coppery highlight and red cherry sparks. The pictures really aren’t doing it justice – this color is really fantastic as a lipgloss. The red cherry sparks catch in the light, which you can see in my fabulous out of focus picture (I was having a terrible time photographing this, sorry!).
I also wanted a really dark color, and I’m pretty obsessed with Fullmetal, so I figured it would make a great not-black lip gloss. Fullmetal is a complex charcoal base with a strong golden shimmer and red highlights. The gold and red shimmer is so pretty when it catches the light!
The formula is lovely. It’s moisturizing, not sticky, and pretty long-lasting for a gloss. I’m totally addicted, and can think of at least 10 more colors I want to turn into gloss now. If you want to see some other shades, you can go here and here and here. On my short list: Heart Attack, Baker’s Boy, and A Regular Bears’ Meeting.
