Review: Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy

I have been waiting a long, long time to buy from Fyrinnae. It has been something that I have wanted for so long, and I finally cracked and ended up making an order for a bunch of Fyrinnae products. The one thing I wanted the most was their Pixie Epoxy. If you have not heard of the Pixie Epoxy, it is a base to make your shimmery eyeshadows more vibrant and to make the shimmer in the shadows really pop.

" A must-have for shimmery, sparkling shadows! This is not an eye shadow primer, or really a base. It is to keep sparkles on or to make shimmery shadows appear "glossy": a foiled look without foiling.
Originally developed and formulated for a friend/pro artist, this unique "glue" is designed to hold the sparkliest, most shimmery eye shadows in place, minimize "fallout", and also to easily create a foiled look without foiling. Don't worry, it's easily washed off, and while keeps shadows in a water-resistant state, the product itself is water-soluble (no silicones or oils). Polymers give the stickiness, while glycerin and propylene glycol keep it wet and slick on skin long enough to apply & blend shadows."~Fyrinnae website

Here is the container. It has a doe foot applicator, similar to lipgloss.

I will show you how this works using MAC 'She Who Dares.' This is a mineralized eye shadow, and it is super shimmery and has a lot of fall out.
I used the green part of the eye shadow, and applied it using my Tokidoki brush.

There is a really huge difference. Especially when you see it in person. Sure, you might get a similar result by foiling the eye shadow [using it wet]. But you might run the risk of ruining your eye shadow by wetting your brush. Plus, this does a much better job at making the shadow last longer on your eye lid; it locks the eye shadow in place and makes it really vibrant.
 Both swatches are once swipe of the brush.

Next I tried Lime Crime 'Twilight' Magic Eye Dust. I love this color, but it is not vibrant enough on its own.

 ~It is $7 for a full size container. That is really affordable!
~Does what it claims.
~Great investment, you get more from the products you have.
~Prevents most of the fall out.
~Easy to apply
~Great for application of cosmetic glitter.

~Does not work with all eye shadows, especially mattes.
[But if it is shimmery or glitter, it will work]

I lovelovelovelovelove this. I cannot believe that I did not buy this sooner!
My verdict: A must have for people who love shimmery eye shadows, especially pigments!
