Swatches: Fyrinnae at work

Fyrinnae are best known for their beautiful, unusual colours, especially the colour-changing Arcane Magic range. Oh, and Pixie Epoxy. BUT, they make some gorgeous neutrals too!

"Ivory with rainbow sparkles."
 Over P.E.
 On bare skin

"Sparkling, somewhat silvery deep taupe.
 Over P.E (the bumpy bit in the middle is a hair)
On bare skin 
This shade is an amazing crease colour, and because I'm somewhat darker-skinned, I find I can get away with this as a lid shade, too.

Damn Paladins
"Soft, satiny taupe with a gentle light blue highlight
 Over P.E
 On bare skin
Obviously I used a lot of P.E in my first swatch! With the correct amount of P.E/over primer, the taupe base is more visible, and the blue highlight is more of a subtle duochrome. I love this shade so much.

"A medium rosy taupe, this shade has a satin finish, but gives off a little more shine when applied wet.
 Over P.E
 On bare skin
This looks ashy and matte in the jar but has this amazing silvery-white sheen to it when applied.

These four shadows definitely help spice up my work make-up routune. I also have three Arcane Magic neutrals, but obviously these are a lot harder to photograph. Expect those after I've finished my Lost in Makeupland series (palette write-up next!)


  1. Awesome! I've just really started to discover Fyrinnae neutrals, and these are some great ones! The one that I was previously aware of was French Vanilla Shake but when I went to order a larger full size of it I found they don't sell it any more. :( Anyways great swatches!

  2. I only have a couple of things from Fyrinnae and they are awesome! I can't believe what a difference PE makes, I'm going to have to get some!

  3. Oooh they're all great! I really like Njiro! I need to make another Fyrinnae order but I'm waiting for them to bring back their lip lustres, though I'm now not sure they will ever return :(

  4. I only have a couple of shades from Fyrinnae (I actually own Damn Paladins) but I've barely used them >__< must rectify this so I can see what everybody goes on about!

  5. Sprite: I don't imagine they would have discontinued Vanilla Shake since it's a classic shade. You could always email them to double check?

    Vulcan: P.E is seriously amazing.

    Lillian: I think it's a packaging issue?:( poor overworked boys they are!

    Heather: yes!

    Silhoette: I wore Damn Paladins today, I think it's my favourite neutral shade EV4R. Fyrinnae just make damn awesome eyeshadows in general, I think.
