Fyrinnae Swatches and Review: Even More Fyrinnae!

Stay Tuned: Giveaway winner will be chosen over the weekend~
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

More Fyrinnae eyeshadows?? Yes! I am completely obsessed with the high quality and inexpensive price of Fyrinnae. Their shadows are pigmented and the colors are amazingly complex. I am continually sucked in by the prospect of finding really unique shades, and Fyrinnae has never disappointed me since they carry such unique colors.  Here is a lot of swatches and a review of my new shades!

Price and Availability
You can purchase these on the Fyrinnae website. Be warned that their web store is very frequently closed, so you have to be constantly vigilant.
I always purchase the sample sizes which are $2 per sample.





Nijiro: I believe Nijiro means "rainbow-colored" in Japanese. It is a fitting name since this is a gold-ivory with rainbow shimmers. It is lovely as a highlight or on the lid.
Sakura:  Sakura is the name for cherry blossoms in Japanese. This color is one of Fyrinnae's Ghost Shades and it is a beautiful iridescent pinky lavender. The color isn't super pigmented, but it isn't meant to be. This is lovely all over the lid or as a transition color.
Gilded Wings: An antique, molten gold. This is SUPER pigmented and rich. I have to thank Suzanne for blogging about this color since it made me want it!
Monarch Butterfly: A black base with loads of brown/coppery/red shimmer. It has a glowing nature to it and it is simply stunning. I have never seen a color quite like this. The photos do it absolutely no justice.
Mephisto: Mephisto (or Mephistopheles) is the name of a demon that first appeared in the story of Faust. I have to admit I was initially attracted to this shade because of the name (I love the Goethe's play of Faust!). This color left me speechless. It is an incredibly unique color. It's red, purple, gold, and black! It is a crazy cool color and it is definitely my favorite amongst all my Fyrinnae colors. Again, pictures do it no justice!







Envy Me: Taupe with a green duo-chrome. This is a very odd combination, but awesome none the less. It reminds me of colors like Te Amo and Damn Paladins (which are both taupe with a different color duo chrome).  This is very nicely pigmented and unique as well.
Jade Ghost: Another of the Ghost Shades, this is a white cast with a green iridescence. It is much less white in person and more iridescent.
Electric Stardust: One of the Magic Arcane shadows (so its suppose to change colors in different lighting). This one is a sparkly minty green. As for the change in color, I can't say I have seen a difference in color.
Dragon's Wing: An iridescent evergreen. I am surprised by how much I like this color. It is stunning in person! It has nice pigmentation and it is easily blendable.
Eternal Innocence: A dark evergreen with brighter green shimmers. I am rather disappointed with this shadow. I like the color, but the pigmentation is not all that great. I can definitely see in the swatches that it is the sheerest eyeshadow.






Dressed To Kill: I already owned this color before. It was a free sample from a previous order and I loved it. It is a deep Chartreuse green with loads of sparkles. It is incredibly pigmented and smooth~
Tyr: This was a free sample and I have to say...I love it. Like Dressed To Kill, it is really pigmented and smooth. Tyr is a dark mossy green that also also has a lot chartreuse sparkles.
Boytoy: Black base with green with blue glitter. This is VERY sparkly since it has micro-glitter.
Dokkalfar: Means Dark Elves. This is a black base with green, lime, and golden micro-glitter.


Verdict:
This is my fourth order of Fyrinnae, and I am still very impressed. I love most of the shades (with the exception of Eternal Innocence) and I am completely crazy for Mephisto! All the swatches were made without a base  and they are swatched over twice, so you can see how pigmented they are! If you like Vegan  and Indie makeup, definitely give Fyrinnae a try! Shipping doesn't take as long as they say it does either (I always get my packages within a week). I really do recommend Fyrinnae shadows~


Which of the colors above do you like the most?

  4. What part of your arm do you swatch them on? The top(hairy side) or bottom? I do mine on the side in between the two and it doesn't seem to work very well.
