Fyrinnae Swatches


My first order from Fyrinnae! I got 6 eyeshadow samples, 2 Pixie Epoxy primers (one for me and one for my sister) and I also got one free eyeshadow sample.



Here are the color drops of the eyeshadows (click on the photo to make it gargantuan):





And here are the swatches, applied dry over Pixie Epoxy:



Applied wet over Pixie Epoxy:


Eternal Innocence - This one is from the Dia De Los Muertos collection for 2010. An emerald green with silver shimmer. Eternal Innocence is *really* shimmery and not so much pigmented. I got this one as a free gift and it's my least favorite. I wouldn't bother getting it in full size, I wouldn't even recommend it in sample size.

Monarch Butterfly - From the Endangered collection 2008. Fyrinnae describes it one as ''Deep black with hues of glowing reddish copper shimmer.'' It looks more like a chocolate brown with copper shimmer to me. This one is really pretty and rich. Hotness!

Medieval Haunting - Part of the Halloween 2009 collection. ''Silky, rich metallic antique gold with accents of silver and gold sparkle.'' I totally agree with Fyrinnae on this one. It's a perfect gold, rich, pigmented and easy to work with. I think I found my pigment for layering over Illamasqua Solstice.

Mephisto - Halloween 2009 collection. The photos and the description on Fyrinnae don't do this one any justice. It's a royal purple with pink shimmer/sheen in the jar and a true chameleon too. It can be blue, purple, bronze, brown... you name it. This one is a must-have for all of you who dare to wear darker colors. It's simply magical and it's my favorite. I love it!

Wicked - Plum with turquoise shimmer. Does that remind you of anything? Orly Galaxy Girl maybe? They would make a perfect couple, that's for sure. It's pretty and bold. Out of this world... for cyber girls. And again - for those who dare to wear. I recommend. =)

Cheshire Cat Grin - From the Mad Tea Party 2009. Bright blue with light blue sparkle. And I mean *sparkle*. It looks much better when applied wet. Actually, I would recommend you to use wet method of application with this one. When you use it dry, it doesn't look half as good.

New Moon's Light - Halloween 2009 collection. A perfect balance of electric purple and blue. Whoa!!! This one is a showstopper. It looks matte, but there's a bit of pink shimmer in it. Just a bit. I almost didn't get this one, because it looks lilac matte on Fyrinnae's site. I'm SO glad I did. It's the most perfect electric blue/purple I've seen. Love, love, love it!

All in all, these pigments are really nice. As you can see, Mephisto and New Moon's Light are my favorites. But the others are also pretty and pigmented, except for Eternal Innocence (I don't like that one at all). I got them all in sample size (in a jar) for $2. That's a great bargain!

Tell me: which are your favorite Fyrinnae shades? And which is your favorite from the ones I swatched?

Thanks for looking!

  3. Pretty colours! Especially Mephisto looks gorgeous!

  4. @Aru: I think they do ship to Italy... There's nothing on their website that would state differently. They ship worldwide.

  5. I quote Aru, Wicked and Mephisto are so beautiful, I wish I could order them, too!
    According to what I read in some forums the problem is that Italy is not among countries listed in the "register" page so it's not clear whether they won't ship (just) to us or it's simply a technical issue they haven't had the time to settle :-(

    How does Pixie Epoxy compares to UD Primer Potion?

  10. I love Mephisto and Wicked! They are gorgeous! And I agree with you on Eternal Innocence - it simply looks dull (and trust me, I am all about green eyeshadows! :D )

    And your post reminded me to order something pretty soon! :)

  11. Medieval Haunting, Mephisto and Wicked are my absolute favourites! They're so gorgeous...

  12. Moja naj naj je Mephisto-ta je res krasna. Drugače pa mi je s tvojih swatchev še všeč New Moon's Light. Medieval Haunting imam in se strinjam da je res perfektna zlata. Zelo lepa mi je tudi Parental Advisory, ampak nevem kako močno se razlikuje od NML. Priporočam še senčko Tyr-ta je res zelo zanimiva in po teksturi zelo podobna M.Haunting-lepo mleta itd. Sama si definitivno še želim imeti La Noche, kakšno duochrome iz Arcane Magic kolekcije..itd. itd. :D

  16. Good lord, there's not a single shade I wouldn't wear from this selection. How perfect!

  17. Those are gorgeous! I don't even wear make up, but I want to buy some of those pigments. My favorites are Monarch Butterfly and Mephisto.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Mephisto is my favorite. Love to see some what you'll come up with.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Mephisto and Wicked! Monarch Butterfly, from swatches I've seen of it, looked like it was black with pink glitter. Did they change it or does the glitter show up only when you foil it?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh I see your second set is done wet. Nevermind then. Maybe you didn't do as many swipes as the other one I saw. Either way, I like it.

    ReplyDelete
  21. the colors all look so unique - I've never seen anything like those :)

  26. @Lianne: I just checked the Fyrinnae site today. I don't know what's happening, but I hope it will be back and running soon. I have no idea where to get Mephisto... sorry.
