Because we can is a favorite of mine. It’s a gorgeous VEGAN pink that I feel the camera just can’t possibly do justice.

Thinking with portals – An orange with blue sparkles. You can’t go wrong with that!

A Neat Gun – this is such a neat blue with pink sparkles

Beta – A deep, cool green.

Deadly Neurotoxin – such a deep, complex green-olive-brown shade with shimmer

Impossible – A neutral gold that has pretty red and blue sparks

Outright Fabrication – an unusual white with pink glitter

Party Escort – OMG awesome dark grey with sparkles

Shall not be mourned – really neat metallic blackened brass with hints of gold and olive

Triumph – a really fun metallic caramel shade

You were adopted – lovely deep blue

When swatching and wearing these colors, you can tell that they’re the same buttery smooth formula of all Shiro shadows. They’ve got great pigmentation, unusual color combinations, and have great longevity for wear. When playing with this collection I was struck again by the thought of how wonderful these colors are and how they’re reminiscent of Aromaleigh.

Wearing Because We Can, Thinking With Portals & Party Escort

I’m really happy with this collection. I love the Portal theme, from having played Portal & Portal 2. I think Caitlin’s interpretation of the colors is Fantastic.
