Shiro Cosmetics Intertubes Review & Swatches

My Shiro Cosmetics haul arrived last weekend… and I got some Intertubes! I placed this order on 1/18, and I received it on 1/29, which is not bad considering the new release.

I got Leeroy Jenkins, OVER 9000, Robe and Wizard Hat, Sad Keanu, and Yo Dawg.

I received a free sample of Rickrolled with my order. (Thanks, Caitlin!)

Here are some swatches…

Leeroy Jenkins is a milky lavender with some very fine violet blue interference and gold shimmer. It has a wonderful spearmint flavor. I must admit I got this one mostly because of the name. LEEROOOOOOOY!!! JENKIIIIIINSSSSSS!!! This shade may appear a bit streaky in the close-up shot, but it’s less noticeable from a normal viewing distance.

OVER 9000 is a pretty bubble gum pink with a great grapefruit flavor. It’s very creamy and incredibly pigmented. It’s over NINE THOUSAAAAAAAND!

Rickrolled is a bright orange with a metallic sheen and a subtle ginger flavor. It’s a little on the sheer side, but it can be built up as desired.

Robe and Wizard Hat is a medium blue with gorgeous gold sparkles and a pleasant blueberry flavor.

Sad Keanu is an amazing dark purple shade with a glossy finish and a yummy blackberry flavor.

Yo Dawg is my favorite out of the bunch! It’s a bright fuchsia pink with a nice glossy sheen and a sweet raspberry flavor. LOVE LOVE LOVE!

Overall, I really liked these Intertubes. They are all quite moisturizing and pretty long lasting. For $6.50, you get about 5.5 grams of product packaged in an oval tube with a waterproof vinyl, which is great because I’ve had problems with other lipstick (and lip balm) labels peeling, fading or rubbing off.

What do you think? Are you going to get any of these Intertubes?

  1. HOLY CRAP these are so pretty! I ordered Sad Keanu and Leeroy Jenkins, and I'm really excited to get them now. I'm a bit bummed that Leeroy Jenkins doesn't look anything like the store swatch though, so thanks for the heads up with your swatches πŸ™‚

  2. I think I might love you just a little bit today…I've been waiting for someone to do some proper swatches of these since they were released! I placed an order for a set of 5 of them last week and I'm soooo excited about receiving them now! Sad Keanu and Yo Dawg were on my order and they look amazing!! πŸ™‚ Can't wait!

    Thanks for the great swatches!! πŸ™‚

  3. Whoa, I think you just sent me over the edge with these and I may just have to order.

    Over 9,000 and No Dawg are my favorites from your swatches.

    Leroy Jenkins – I may just have to pick it up because of the spearmint scent.

    Can you compare the moisturization to that of SN's Kisser Slickers? and how do they glide on compared to SN's?

    Thank you so much for these swatches. These are really fun colors. I don't know what I'd do with blue lipstick but somehow it's calling to me. Wonder if applied lightly if it would work or applied on top of another color?

  4. @Jadegrrrl: Let us know how you like 'em when you get 'em. πŸ™‚

    @Ida: Over 9000 is a very lovely color.

    @Beauty's Bad Habit: Sad Keanu and Yo Dawg are both awesome! (^_^)

    @SilhouetteScreams: I can't wait to hear how you like 'em.

    @Ms. Wedgie: Yay! What else did you get?

    @justltee: I love Over 9000 and Yo Dawg! So beautiful! I think SN's Kisser Slickers are more moisturizing and glide on better, but Shiro's Intertubes are more pigmented and longer lasting.

    @Xongie: I really like the packaging, especially the chicken on Leeroy Jenkins. LOL!

  5. I also got Leroy Jenkins, 3 Wolf Moon and Over 9000! I also might have accidentally put a couple of the Zelda eyeshadows in my shopping cart as well (Veran and Zora), whoopsy! πŸ˜‰ I had to resist going completely nuts and buying everything!! There's so much stuff to choose from. I'm already planning my next order!

  6. @Ms. Wedgie: I almost ordered 3 Wolf Moon, but I think I already have something similar. I need some Zelda e/s… I want them all! (^_^)

    @herroyalbleakness: I didn't expect to like Sad Keanu so much, but I do… so nice! And Yo Dawg looks stunning in person.

  7. awesome swatches! I think I want all of them, but mostly Yo Dawg, Leeroy Jenkins, and Sad Keanu. Robe and Wizard Hat looks so pretty and unique as well! Thanks for posting this!!!
