Happy Tuesday zombies!
Today I have some new and 'new to me' Fyrinnae swatches! As most of you know, Fyirnnae is one of my favorite "handmade eyeshadow" companies. They've long been my favorite and still to this day amaze me with the new shades they create. I decided to pick up some of the colors I don't already own and some that are new for the Summer 2015 season.
*Be sure to click images for maximum awesome!
I ordered mini sizes of the following:
Capybara (new June 2015)
Conjured Tempest (new Feb. 2015)
Serene Highness (new Feb. 2015)
Zanzibar (new May 2015)
Wizard's Wedding Cake (arcane magic)
Ailurophile (new Feb. 2015)
Birb of Paradise (new June 2015)
Celestial Beauty was my free sample (new June 2015)
I love Fyrinnae's new business cards!
Descriptions per Fyrinnae website:
Celestial Beauty: A rich blend of shimmering violet and blue is enhanced with a touch of bronze sparkle.
Nepenthe: Vivid, metallic Byzantium purple, unlike any of our existing shades.
Conjured Tempest: Deep murky green with a vibrant pink-purple highlight.
Peppermint Vodka: Lush, rich, shimmering burgundy enhanced with copper sparkle.
Midnight Dreary: Velvety, vibrant, shimmering blue is enhanced with gold sparkle.
Capybara: Designed somewhat like our Serendipity to give a complex everyday look with one shade, this shadow is a muted blend of pink and red hues over a transparent base (which may appear dark gray depending on application).
Zanzibar: Vibrant deep turquoise topped with a greenish gold highlight and an overall metallic finish.
Bawdy Librarian: This is no basic brown! This, my good guys and dolls, is a lush, shimmery, golden brown rich with gold sparkle. Cameras cannot capture its true beauty; you must get to know the shade in person. Warm-toned, but would work well on many skintones.
Wizard's Wedding Cake: Bold icy blue shimmer, which changes to pink closer to light or at an angle, is set on a deep chocolate brown base.
Serene Highness: Medium cool violet topped with a vibrant highlight of varying green hues (shimmer, not sparkle).
Debonair: Warm, shimmery lilac graced with a glowing coppery highlight.
Ailurophile: An elegant blend of soft purple and gold in various tones. Slightly metallic finish with a touch of small-particle sparkle.
Birb of Paradise: Glowing royal blue tops a velvety deep brown base hue. Shown swatched over regular primer, but over a sticky base the blue will be more prominent and metallic. makes a great liner.
I used Pixie Epoxy as a base (also from Fyrinnae.)
My absolute favorite from this lot is 'Serene Highness'. I'm a sucker for purple/blue duochrome eyeshadow it's followed closely by 'Conjured Tempest.' This shade looks inconspicuous in the jar, but once swatched, it takes on a whole life of it's own. It's a light taupe with a lovely purple sheen. I'm also very excited about 'Birb of Paradise' seeing as how I don't have a color at all like it in my collection. It's a rich navy blue that is smooth and lovely. 'Nepenthe', 'Zanzibar' and 'Bawdy Librarian' also pack a punch and make me happy! I must say that it is a must to use a base with Fyrinnae's pigments. Also, make sure you pat them on your lids as opposed to brushing them on. The color and glitter payoff is much greater that way.
With this purchase, I now own 111 Fyrinnae eyeshadow shades. I'm not at all ashamed of this!
Do you see something in this bunch that you adore? Full sized Fyrinnae eyeshadows are $6.75 each and mini sizes (1/3 of a tsp) are $2.75. The mini sizes are full of product and in all the years I've been blogging, I don't think I've gone through an entire mini sized jar. A little bit of Fyrinnae goes a LONG way. ;)
