Hey Ya'll

I've gotten this up quickly for you as I am not to sure how long this collection is going to hang around! This is Shiro's Halloween 2012 collection based on the Nightmare Before Christmas one of my ALL TIME TOP 10 MOVIES!!! So as with all of Shiro's collections this is avaiable as indivudual colours in 3 sizes Sample (1/4 tsp) for $1.00 USD, Mini (1.0 gram) $3.50 USD and Full Size (2.0 grams) $5.00 USD. The Halloween collection is also avaiable as sets with discounted prices *listed below image taken from Shiro cosmetics* The collection Lipgloss is also individually for a Mini (approx. 2.5 ml in a jar) $4.00 USD and Full Size (15 ml in a tube w/ doefoot applicator) $7.00 USD.
The $1.00 USD samples are very generous and allow for many uses, all my items arrived in Australia around 3 weeks after shipping confirmation and were posted within the TAT. All individual colour listings have an ingredience list and a cute sentience or 2 about the colour taken from the show/game/anime where ever Caitlin gets her insperation from
Sample taken from Finkelstein
One part genius, two parts evil, tied together with a generous splash of madness and a particular fondness for wormswort.

Somewhat sheer, ultra-pale ghoulish green-yellow-grey with blue shimmer. Not lip-safe.

Ingredients: mica, carnauba wax, titanium dioxide, iron oxide, tin oxide, chromium oxide.
Now onto the Colours themselves. In this Mini - colection my favrouite colour is Oogie Boogie I feel that this colour would be flattering on all skin-tones.
