Shiro Cosmetics has released a new collection called Death Note. It’s inspired by the manga/anime of the same name. That anime has been on my ‘to watch’ list for over a year! It’s supposed to be amazing and everyone at my old office raved about it.
Heaven Nor Hell – Velvety, shimmery gunmetal gray. Lip-safe!
More Sugar – Creamy shimmer in a rich coffee base. Lip-safe!
Shinigami – Dark royal purple with silver sparks. Lip-safe!
Task Force – Shimmery deep burgundy. Not lip-safe.
Heart Attack – Deep maroon with blue duochrome. Lip-safe!
Second Kira – Charcoal with bright golden sparks. Lip-safe!
Detective – Taupe with strong blue duochrome. Lip-safe!
Mistrust – Dirty orange-brown with silver sparks. Lip-safe!
Divine Justice – Tan-brown with strong golden shimmer. Lip-safe!
Perfect World – Pure (not yellow-leaning) and slightly metallic gold. Lip-safe!
I’ve got my eye on Heaven Nor Hell, Heart Attack, Detective, Perfect World and Shinigami.
Have you heard of Death Note? Do any of these colors interest you?
I personally am not a fan of Death Note. I found the manga a bit predictable, really… Monster caught a lot more of my attention. I also dislike how woman are portaited in it… Still, it is fun. Raito and L are good characters. I think the collection looks gorgeous! Shame I’m holding back on ordering loose eyeshadow, or else I’d jump on those, haha!
I love Monster too, along with 20th Century Boys and Pluto. Urasawa pulls me in every time.
Wow, I totally agree! Monster is heads and shoulders superior to Death Note, and yes, Death Note is very male-centric. I did like how dramatic it was, though, and other than the female characters, it was generally very well-written.
Ahh, makes sense why some of my male friends raved about it
I haven’t seen it or read it! That’s sad if it’s too predictable
Death Note has and always will be my favorite manga and anime series. I have a special place in my heart for L and Ryuk, so this is incredible! I don’t need anymore makeup, but may have to place an order just for the theme alone!
What was your favorite aspect of it? I think my favorite anime is tied between Tenchi Muyo, Vampire Princess Miyu and Devil Hunter Yohko.
I loveee Death Note! So this collection is pretty exciting for me. Plus, it helps that the shadows are all really pretty smokey colors.
They are lovely, Gina!
To be honest, the inspirations behind Shiro’s collections usually escape me, and this one is no different( I hadn’t even heard of Death Note before, haha), but I’m excited for new colours
Aww, I love that she has such eclectic influences. I’m glad you like the colors Caitie!
I haven’t seen it but it sounds really interesting. Might buy some of these from Shiro, I’m in the process of making a palette at the moment:)
Oooh, making a palette is fun!
I’ve been thinking about swatching the entire collection soon. Gorgeous colors.
Woot! I’ll be swatching it as soon as it arrives.
Um, I’m OBSESSED with Death Note, so I had to order a couple of these colors. Of course, I bought Detective (along with Shinigami and Perfect World).
WATCH IT, WATCH IT!!!!
Yay! Glad to hear it
Squee!!! got into Death Note a while back, and this makes me ssoo happy!! Ssooo need to get some of these along a heart container thanks!!!
You’re welcome Molly!
Task Force and Heart Attack immediately grabbed my attention. I love deep purples and reds; those two look like they’d be super pretty!
Yay, glad to hear it Sophie!
AHHHH! I f**cking love Death Note!! Like, crazy ultra-mega love. It’s the only anime I’ve watched within my adult span of life (thus far) and so super loved I actually went on a search for photos. Ryuk stares me down on my lock screen for my phone, and L is my avatar in many areas (including my Mii on the Wii). Shit, it’s the only anime my husband
has watched. Not only watched, but loved as much as me. We even watched the live version of the movie – which, btw, is completely skippable – out of love for the animated series.
I actually ordered a shinigami sample from Fyrinnae just because of the name. Couldn’t bring myself to get a full size of it though, dark purples don’t look as nice on me as before. :p
Thanks for posting about this! I know what my xmas present will be….
You’re so welcome Sara!
I loved Death Note – both the manga and the anime. Surprisingly tightly written and suspenseful for the genre – not dragged out forever for more episodes. I need to go back to it!
Glad to hear you like it, Larie!
I’ve never heard of Death Note before. But I did know Shiro was coming out with another collection and I’m super excited! I love all the colors and I will definitely be getting them all! But Second Kira and Detective may be my favorites so far.
Glad you like the looks of it, Alison!
I love Death Note; I ordered a sample set as soon as it was listed. I can’t wait to see it!
What’s your favorite from the collection, Amanda?
OMG~~~~ I freaked out when I heard about this!!! I love Shiro Cosmetics, and I have been a huge fan of Death Note for years kind of obsessed with Death Note since I was in 10th grade of HS. I am now a Junior in college. So yeah, I am definitely getting all of these ;D
Yay! Glad you’re happy with it, Nancy
Squee! I’m a huge Death Note fangirl, so this collection had me taken at once. Can’t wait to order!! Detective sounds interesting, Second Kira, Task force, Shinigami, Divine Justice, and Heart Attack look amazing. Pure World too, since I’ve been looking for some more golds. Oh well at this rate I might just get the whole collection!
Hehe, glad it excites you, Rylee!
Apart from the fact that these colours look gorgeous and luxrious, I’m a big Death Note fan! Just having it as the collection name (and with a picture of L there) I’m already wanting this.
Let me know if you decide to try it, Sarirah
