Fyrinnae Eyeshadows - Forest Dragon, Caramel Layer Cake, Bawdy Librarian and Electric Stardust Swatches & Review19:42
Purchased by me/GWP/Contains affiliate links
Fyrinnae eyeshadows are available in full size jars ($6.75USD for regular eyeshadows and $7.30USD for Arcane Magics) with a weight of approximately 3 grams.
Alternatively, the mini jars (which are what I purchase and what you'll see pictured here) contain 1/3 tsp (regular eyeshadows, $2.75USD) or 1/4 tsp (Arcane Magics, $2.75USD) and are about .4 to .7 gram in weight.
Fyrinnae's eyeshadows have a semi-loose formula with binders added that can form small balls of pigment (they are easy to crush or use as is and don't present any issues during application). Some colours still benefit from a sticky base underneath to help sparkle adhere, such as Fyrinnae's own Pixie Epoxy, but they can be easily used without one. They're a breeze to blend, too.
All eyeshadow swatches in this post are done two ways: applied on bare skin on the left hand side and over Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy, a sticky eyeshadow base which maximises colour intensity and sparkle, on the right. This is so you can see how they perform both ways. I take all of my photos with daylight bulbs for colour accuracy.
Caramel Layer Cake
Electric Stardust is described as a 'light, glowing, mint green sparkle... Brought closer to light, it changes to a pale aqua-blue.' Unfortunately Electric Stardust appears to have been discontinued since I placed my order, in fact it seems to have come and gone from the Arcane Magic line up a few times now, so hopefully it will someday return. I found it really easy to work with and was impressed that the sparkles adhered without the use of a base and didn't cause any fallout over the course of the day, either. If Fyrinnae bring this back, I'll buy a full size jar for sure.
I used Bawdy Librarian on the outer half of the lid, Caramel Layer Cake on the inner half, Forest Dragon on the lower lashline and Electric Stardust on the inner corner. I also used the LORAC Nude Skinny palette for the transition and blending. The lashes are Cala lashes in style 1.
Fyrinnae are available exclusively from their website.
