After what seems like an eternity my Fyrinnae order arrived today. It didn’t take an eternity at all. It’s just a case of a watched kettle type situation. Anyway, it arrived, very well packaged and I particularly liked the skull and crossbones tissue paper! I realise now looking at my samples that if I didn’t already, I now own enough eye colours to last me all of my lifetime and probably both of my daughters lifetimes.
Averaging $2 per sample, there’s enough there to keep me going for a long long time. I grabbed a big selection of shades, although I notice looking through them, most are neutral ish shades, browns, greys and so forth. Nearly all of them are very sparkly and I bought several of the arcane magic shadows which are duochromes. So pretty. So if you’re ready I’m going to take you through looking at close ups and swatches of all the shades I got. All are swatched on bare skin unless otherwise stated. The little black pot is a sample of Pixie Epoxy.
First up Boy Toy, Catrina Caberet, Atomic Afterglow, Calavera Cupcakes, Dinosaur Plushie, Rapunzel Had Extensions and Leshu:
Swatched in the above order:
Atomic Afterglow and Rapunzeld Had Extensions really stands out. I was completely unable to capture the pink in Catrina Caberet but trust me it’s there and very pretty.
Next Equality, Sugar Skulls, Madame & Evie’s, STFU, Te Amo, Immortality and Half-Elf Hottie:
And swatches in the same order:
You can’t tell from this pic but Immortality is AMAZING, see later for a better look at it, I’m also completely loving Half-Elf Hottie, again you can’t really tell but it’s cream with pink duo. Very nice. Te Amo is also a stand out.
Next up is Damn Paladins and Fire Opal:
Both of these are stunning but Fire Opal has this lit from within effect that is really stunning.
Also included in my samples were two freebies, in Ravens &Writing Desks and Leif:
I wouldn’t have chosen either of these, particularly the green, but I’m game!
So thats the entire order, really pleased, I wasn’t expecting them to swatch so well to be honest, I was expecting to have to use them on top of the Pixie Epoxy to get them to show up but I was pleasantly surprised. And speaking of the Epoxy, I simply had to show you two of my favourites swatched over it. I give you Immortality and Half Elf Hottie over Pixie Epoxy:
Do you see the rainbow coloured sparkle in Immortality? No? What about now?
I’ve had a little chance to play and as always, forgive the eyebrows, but I’m staggered how easy it is to create an eye look I’ve always wanted to be able to do. This is Atomic Afterglow and Rapunzel had extensions over Pixie Epoxy. I love it!
What do you think? Are you tempted by any? If you know a lot about this brand do you have any recommendations for me?
