Shiro Cosmetics Kawaii Collection

I wanted pastels, and the Kawaii Collection from Shiro Cosmetics is so cute - hence the name, you know.

There are five colors: Kawaii, Yatta, Bonzai, Desu, Lolita, that are pastel pink, yellow, green, blue, and purple, respectively.  They are a five-piece gift set that comes packaged in a cute box with Japanese candy, and I, um, gifted myself.
Those labels are so cute, yes?
Here are swatches.  Applied dry, with a flat shadow brush, no primer.
Natural light (indirect); they are all beautifully pigmented and are faintly shimmery, though the primary finish is rather matte.  Click for larger.
Swatched in more direct sunlight; you can see the shimmer!  Click for larger.
$28 for 5 jars (2 grams each); comes packaged beautifully and ready for gift-giving (or for spoiling yourself!).  If you are looking for pastels, these are a fabulous option.  Buy at Shiro Cosmetics.
