Shiro Loose Eyeshadow Singles Review Part 1

In this review I will be looking at the Shiro loose eyeshadow single shades No Men Like Me, I Loved A Maid, Climbing Chaos, and Colonel.


A navy and gold eye look with No Men Like Me all over the lid, I Loved A Maid in the inner corner, Climbing Chaos in the crease, and Colonel in the outer edge (with Fyrinnae Beyond Binary on the brow bone). The eyeshadows were applied over Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden and Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy. Paired with Kat Von D tattoo liner in trooper and Yves Saint Laurent Babydoll mascara.


Shiro No Men Like Me is a shade inspired by Jaime Lannister and is part of Shiro’s The Seven Kingdoms collection. This shadow can be purchased on Shiro’s website in a sample bag, mini jar, and full sized jar that sell for $1USD, $3.75USD, and $6.50USD, respectively. The shade is described by Shiro as a “gold-burnished plate soaked in ashy white”. When I applied this shade with just a normal eyeshadow primer, the color appeared a light taupe with a very subtle shimmer. However, when I used a sticky glitter primer, I got a lot more of the underlying gold, so much so that it seemed like an almost entirely different color.

I found that the shade applied well over just regular primer but was harder to work with over glitter primer. It would be best not to use this over glitter primer unless you really want to get that gold showing through (the eye look above shows the gold from this shade). Over primer, this shadow lasted about 10 hours.

Four star Generally a good shade, but the color variance can be frustrating


Shiro I Loved A Maid is a shade inspired by Tyrion Lannister from Shiro’s The Seven Kingdoms collection. This shadow can be purchased on Shiro’s website in a sample bag, mini jar, and full sized jar that sell for $1USD, $3.75USD, and $6.50USD, respectively. The shade is described by Shiro as “a green shifting gold shining out over a base of softened Lannister crimson”. I didn’t really see the green-shift in the gold, but the gold clearly showed through the base. The base itself was a coppery brown.

Unlike No Men Like Me, this shade looked the same applied over regular primer or glitter primer. I think I would recommend using this with glitter primer because this shade is quite glittery and there was a fair amount of fallout. Over primer this shadow lasted about 12 hours.

Shiro Climbing Chaos is a shade inspired by Petyr Baelish from Shiro’s The Seven Kingdoms collection. This shadow can be purchased on Shiro’s website in a sample bag, mini jar, and full sized jar that sell for $1USD, $3.75USD, and $6.50USD, respectively. The shade is described by Shiro as “rich velvety brown with warm metallic copper-bronze shine.” I think Shiro’s description is pretty accurate to my experience with the color. The best way to describe this shade is antique gold with a lot of sparkle.

While also very glittery, I didn’t get as much fallout with this shade as I Loved A Maid. I also didn’t really see a difference in color when using this shade with a regular or glitter primer. Overall I think it’s a nice shimmer neutral. Over primer, this shadow lasted about 12 hours.

Five star A good shimmer neutral with minimal fallout.


Shiro Colonel is a shade inspired by Colonel Roy Mustang from Shiro’s The Fullmetal collection. This shadow can be purchased on Shiro’s website in a sample bag, mini jar, and full sized jar that sell for $1USD, $3.75USD, and $6.50USD, respectively. The shade is described by Shiro as a “military blue packed with gold sparkle.” The color that I experienced was a navy blue with pops of gold sparkle.

I really liked the color of this shade but found it hard to apply. The color did not want to adhere well to my lid when a used a brush and blended away to nothing. However, when I applied it with my fingers, it adhered fine and was able to be blended without sheering out. There was also a fair amount of fallout, but this could be a result of applying with my fingers. Over primer, this shadow lasted about 10 hours

Four star A gorgeous shade but difficult to work with.
