Lip Swatch: Shiro Cosmetics Why Not Zoidberg?


Hi Girlies!

I have a new (to me) indie makeup brand to share today – Shiro Cosmetics! Shiro is an independent company based in Portland, Oregon that creates gorgeous eyeshadows, lip colours and other fantastic products. Something I love about Shiro Cosmetics is that all of the products have clever names and hilarious descriptions I managed to snag four Intertubes (now discontinued) in a sale – you might have seen my Instagram post about them. I got Smashing, Over 9000, Leeroy Jenkins and Why Not Zoidberg?.

Why Not Zoidberg? is obviously inspired by this sassy guy from Futurama:

WNZ? is an orange-coral lipstick with fairly moisturising formula. When I wore it, I felt that it reminded me more of a tinted lip balm rather than a lipstick. I couldn’t really build it up to opacity, so it looked like more of a subtle coral tint with my skintone. I’ve been spoiled with bold, matte formulas lately so this is a nice change of pace. It’s perfect for when I just want a hint of colour on my lips 🙂 I’ve added a photo of my bare lips so you can see how subtle this looks (to me, at least!).

My only issue so far with these Intertubes is the smell – some of them smell really odd to me and it can be off putting. However, I have been spoiled lately with yummy scented lipsticks (Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creams, Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks, MAC Lipsticks) so I’m probably just not used to it.

Do you have any Shiro? Let me know in the comments! I’m lusting after a few of their eyeshadows at the moment… Must make an order when I can.

Thanks for reading!

  1. I have one of the Shiro tinted balms, they replaced the intertubes, and it's amazing. I also have a sample of an eyeshadow and it's really nice. I'll email you the link to a blog post about them. I want to get more Shiro stuff!
