Shiro Loose Eyeshadow Singles Review Part 4

In this review I’ll be looking at Shiro loose eyeshadow singles in the shades Grow Home Douglas, You’re Trunk; Leaf Me Alone, I’m Pine; Kokiri Emerald; Farore’s Wind; and Hero of Ages.


Green eye look created with Grow Home Douglas, You’re Trunk all over the lid, Kokiri Emerald in the crease, and Leaf Me Alone, I’m Pine in the outer corner of the eye. Fyrinnae Beyond Binary was used on the brow bone. All eyeshadows were applied over Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden. Also used was Stila Stay All Day liquid eyeliner in Moss and Heroine Make Long and Curl mascara.


Shiro Grow Home Douglas, You’re Trunk is a matte loose eyeshadow that’s part of the Angsty Evergreen Tree-O, a mini collection literally devoted to puns on evergreens. It sells for $1USD for a sample bag, $3.75USD for a mini jar, and $6.50USD for a full sized jar on Shiro’s website. According to Shiro, this shade is a “deep green-tinted mustardy gold, most matte with just a whisper of metallic bronze shine.” I found this shade to be a matte light olive green.

This shadow applied smoothly and evenly with enough pigmentation to completely cover the lid with one layer. It did not have the blending problems that matte shadows can sometimes get — no patchiness or refusal to blend. With primer, this shadow lasted me all day.

Five star A smooth, blendable matte with a unique color


Shiro Leaf Me Alone, I’m Pine is a matte loose eyeshadow that’s part of the Angsty Evergreen Tree-O, a mini collection literally devoted to puns on evergreens. It sells for $1USD for a sample bag, $3.75USD for a mini jar, and $6.50USD for a full sized jar on Shiro’s website. Shiro describes this shade as a “deep matte blue-toned evergreen.” The color is a very blue-toned green, almost teal.

While the pigmentation of this shadow was good, I did encounter some patchiness upon application (which you can see in the swatch). Even when I did apply the shadow evenly, it was difficult to blend out the edges with a blending brush. However, the shadow had minimal fallout and lasted all day with primer.

Four star A lovely shade, but has some patchiness and difficulties blending


Shiro Kokiri Emerald is a shimmery loose eyeshadow that’s part of The Legends collection and is inspired by the spiritual stone Kokiri Emerald from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. It sells for $1USD for a sample bag, $3.75USD for a mini jar, and $6.50USD for a full sized jar on Shiro’s website. Shiro describes this shade as a “muted green-gold with light shimmer.” I found the color to be an earthy moss green. The shimmer was very subtle, especially compared to some of Shiro’s other shadows.

I was surprised by the pigmentation of this shade — I was able to use it to cover up the relatively dark shade Leaf Me Alone, I’m Pine. The application of this shadow was very smooth with no patchiness, although there was a little fallout. With primer, I was able to get a full day’s wear with this shade.

Four and a half star A pigmented shadow with smooth application but some fallout


Shiro Farore’s Wind is a shimmery loose eyeshadow that’s part of The Legends collection and is inspired by the spell Farore’s Wind from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. It sells for $1USD for a sample bag, $3.75USD for a mini jar, and $6.50USD for a full sized jar on Shiro’s website. According to Shiro, this shade is a “light blue-toned green with silvery shimmer.” This shade is quite shimmery and a very blue-toned green — it’s almost an aqua.

While the above shadows wore fine without primer, I think this shade really needs a primer to stand out (although it doesn’t have to be a glitter primer). Without a primer, this shadow is a powdery faint green, but with primer it’s an almost metallic blue-green. The shadow applied evenly with minimal fallout, but it is a little more sheer than other Shiro shadows. I was able to get a full day’s wear with primer.

Four star Requires primer to stand out and has less pigmentation


Shiro Hero of Ages is a shimmery loose eyeshadow that’s part of The Legends collection and is inspired by the main character Link from  The Legend of Zelda series. It sells for $1USD for a sample bag, $3.75USD for a mini jar, and $6.50USD for a full sized jar on Shiro’s website. Shiro describes this shade as a “dark, near-matte blue-toned forest green.” I would describe this shadow as more of an emerald green, and, despite Shiro stating it’s near-matte, I thought it had noticeable shimmer.

This shade had very even application with no problems blending. It was quite pigmented and quickly overtook other shadows if I applied too much, even without primer. Despite its pigmentation, it had minimal fallout and no fallout after it was applied. Over primer, I was able to get a full day’s wear with this shadow.

Five star Very pigmented and blendable with little fallout
