It seems like this is really the year to highlight this amazing, magical girl eyeshadow from Shiro Cosmetics. Shiro is a super nerdy, indie makeup company that I discovered because I was looking for something Nic Cage related to give my sister in law at christmas, and LO AND BEHOLD, they have an eyeshadow specifically called Nic Cage Raking Leaves on a Brisk October Afternoon. I’m not joking. It has his face on it, and it’s amazing.
Of course after that I had to try ordering some things for myself, and this was my number one pick for obvious reasons. It’s called Moon Prism Power, and has a gorgeous shot of Usagi transforming (from the original anime) on the lid.
It doesn’t look like much here, but it’s actually something you definitely have to see in person. The colour isn’t just one colour, it’s every colour in a sort of opal-hologram rainbow shift - obviously super appropriate considering the name. Depending on the way the light hits it it turns into just about every colour imaginable, but in a subtle, magical-girl look.
As you can see above it comes in a small tin of loose powder, so you’ll need a little brush to apply it, but this is one of my favourite pieces of makeup both for the subtle actual effect and the branding. Super cute.
