Shiro 5th Birthday Order – Part 5: Surprise pack #2

So, I posted set #1 before. Now for set #2!

As a recap, with Shiro’s 5th anniversary sale, she offered 10 eyeshadow samples for $5. I love a good deal, so of course I had to get a couple of these surprise packs. I reviewed the first pack here. But with this many swatches, it def needed to be broke up into a couple of sets! IMG_6211 IMG_6214

I do love surprises, so again, the idea of a mystery pack was really exciting to me.

And same as last time, only two colors from the set were ones I already have. Impressive!

Here’s what was in pack #2:
Kooloo-Limpah – This is a nice medium peach with green and red sparkles, but it’s not super sparkly. It’s much more of a satin. I’m not sure I really love it as an eyeshadow color, but I think I’ll try to turn it into a gloss.IMG_6215 IMG_6216 IMG_6217 IMG_6218

 

Kokiri Emerald – This is a mossy yellow-green. It’s definitely more of a satin. It does have some green and red sparkle in it, but it’s subtle so you really have to be looking for it.IMG_6222 IMG_6220 IMG_6221 IMG_6223

 

When the Thrush Knocks – This is a nice color. It’s not life-changing. But I like it. It’s a nicely pigmented orange-gold satin.Maybe like a light golden copper.IMG_6225 IMG_6226 IMG_6227 IMG_6228

 

Cognitive Recalibration – This is a dark mauve with a super intense blue-violet sheen. So cool!IMG_6232 IMG_6230 IMG_6231 IMG_6234

 

Women’s Weapons – This is a dark wine/brown with copper and red sparkle and a soft copper sheen. To be honest, this isn’t a color that I personally would wear as an eyeshadow. I think it’s just too much for me. However, it would make a badass lip color. No wonder everyone gets this as a custom gloss all the time.IMG_6238 IMG_6236 IMG_6237 IMG_6239

 

Star-Crossed – This is my absolute favorite of the bunch. It is SUPER buttery and smooth. The eyeshadow is a golden bronze on a black base. I normally hate black bases, but this one is special. It’s just soooo sparkly.IMG_6241 IMG_6243 IMG_6242 IMG_6244

 

Not Very Effective – This one is purple with red sparkles. At first, I thought it was a dupe of Fullmetal. Actually, I thought something was mis-packaged, but the more I look at these, the more different they look. Fullmetal is more gray and NVE is more purple. Still, they do look very similar.IMG_6246 IMG_6247 IMG_6249 IMG_6259 IMG_6260

 

That Man is Playing Galaga – This is black with LOTS of multicolored sparkles: violet, blue, copper and green. This is going to make a badass liner for sure!IMG_6252 IMG_6253 IMG_6251 IMG_6254

Of this bunch, the two I already have are Alkahestry and Cake. Both are super awesome colors! Especially Alkahestry if you like things that sparkle!

Love the surprise pack!
