Shiro Cosmetics Overview and Swatches

I learned of Shiro Cosmetics through a blog post A Bit Prissy did featuring some products from a collection based off of the anime Full Metal Alchemist. I was immediately intrigued, because I am a huge fan of anime. I immediately headed over to the website to discover that not only was there a Full Metal Alchemist collection, but there was a LEGEND OF ZELDA COLLECTION. I am a HUGE gamer. One could call me a nerd. My all time favorite games are the Legend of Zelda games. They have been since I picked up an SNES controller and started A Link to the Past. I actually have a massive tattoo on my leg of the Hylian Crest. As can be expected, when I saw that collection I had a bit of a spazz moment. There was dancing involved. 
I decided to purchase two colors from the Full Metal collection and one color from the Legends collection. I WILL be getting more products from her, as I am very pleased with what I purchased.

Master Sword is a very sparkly pale taupe. 

Housewife is a pale greige with a shimmery finish. 

Equivalent Exchange is a dark, slightly blue toned purple with bright purple sparkles.

All of these colors are extremely pigmented and swatched beautifully on my skin without any primer. 
You can get samples of these colors for $1.00, a small size (1 gram) for $3.50, or a full size (2 grams) for $5.00. When I received my order, she had even included a box of nerds and another little candy thing for Halloween. I thought that was sweet. No pun intended. 
She also included two samples:
 Epona is a soft brown with a cream overlay, and Chimera is a tarnished gold and silver shimmer over a blackened background.
