Fyrinnae Review

This Fyrinnae post has been long overdue. I've had these products for a few months now, but only recently got them swatched in a way that I was happy with.

:::  THE SPECS  :::

Fyrinnae has been somewhat of a "cult favorite" in the indie makeup community for a while, offering a wide variety of makeup in unique colors and very useable formulas. At the moment, the Fyrinnae website is down, noting a return date of 11/20, so I'm unable to pull up details about the company itself or the prices. From what I remember, they offer sample sizes, mini jars and full-size jars of the shadows.  Normally I'd go into more detail about prices, shipping and selection, but between the site being down and having ordered such a long time ago, I don't have as much information at this point. But keep checking their website — it's relatively easy to navigate and place an order.

:::  THE OPINIONS  ::: 

I had to post a lot of pictures to show off the great multifaceted elements to these colors — in some cases, no two pictures look the same for certain colors. They all wear very nicely, and I've used Sleepy Hollow as a liner with pretty fantastic results. My favorites out of the bunch are Shinkirou, Moon Child, Rapunzel Had Extensions and Warrior-Mage. All of the colors were very pigmented, and most of them would even work over no base. However, I find the best payoff by layering over UDPP and NYX Jumbo Pencil, which seems to bring out all of the different dimensions in each color while blending nicely.
What are some of your favorites from Fyrinnae?

Stay Fabulous!
