If you saw my previous entry, you should already know that I received my Fyrinnae order and was pretty darn pleased. If you missed it, check out my first impressions and swatches here. I figured I should go ahead and do full, in-depth review because a lot of people have expressed interest in Fyrinnae.
I can't remember how much I paid for shipping exactly but it wasn't more than $3.00, so that's always good. My items came in a white bubble mailer, and everything was wrapped up in a piece of cardboard and underneath that, a pretty piece of zebra print tissue paper. There was a notice on the website stating it would take 18-20 days to ship my order so I had prepared myself to wait a while, but I got them in exactly 8 days. That's a very reasonable amount of time to wait, especially considering how much business they have. The eyeshadows came in plain clear jars (I like clear jars because you can see what color you're grabbing without looking for a label or having to open it) with a sticker on the bottom with the company name and the color name.
Of the eyeshadows I ordered mini jars(1/3 tsp) of:
Shinigami (deep sparkly purple)
Curiouser and Curiouser (bright super sparkly electric blue)
Sleepy Hollow (dark, sort of black based sparkly teal color)
and Rapunzel Had Exensions (peachy pinky goldish shimmery color)
I also received a free sample of Javan Rhino, which is a light turquoise color with just a little tiny bit of shimmer.
The mini jars were only $2.00. The full sized eyeshadows are $5.90.
I ordered one lip lustre in "Lollipop-Pop" which is a bright baby pink with a bit of a blue sheen. I got a full sized tube and it was only $4.50.
I also ordered a full-sized tube of Pixie Epoxy, which is used to make eyeshadow have that "foiled" look without actually foiling. I'd heard nothing but people raving about this stuff so I went ahead for the full tube which was $7.00.
I'll start with the eyeshadows. They're GORGEOUS. I am seriously bummed I didn't order more colors, but I plan on doing so soon.
Shinigami is the most beautiful dark purple I have ever seen with what looks to me like turquoise and red sparkles.
Curiouser and Curiouser (from an Alice in Wonderland collection) is such a gorgeous bright blue. It's verrrry sparkly but it doesn't make a mess like you'd think.
Sleepy Hollow is just beautiful. I have never seen a color like this and I'm so glad I got it. It's a very dark teal-ish color with gold sparkles.
Javan Rhino was my free sample and I love it! It's a very light turquoise with a very minimal amount of shimmer. Perfect for either daytime or nighttime wear, which is great.
Rapunzel Had Extensions is probably my FAVORITE color that I ordered. It's kind of hard to describe. In the jar it looks very peachy, almost orangey but when you apply it, it's a light goldish shimmery color. It's really lovely. In my last entry I posted a photo of what it looks like on my eyes as well as the swatches but I will post again in case you missed it!

I used the Pixie Epoxy for both of these looks as well as Too Faced Shadow Insurance. Let me just say the Pixie Epoxy is WELL worth the money. If you apply just a thin layer on top of your favorite eyeshadow base, then apply your eyeshadow it makes it look amazing! It works especially well for really shimmery, glittery eye shadows, and Fyrinnae offers a lot of those. It really does make your eyeshadow look like you applied it wet without having to actually do that(so messy!). It also reduces all that fallout mess on your cheeks. I am SO glad I got this, and if you wear eyeshadow I recommend you get some too! If you buy just one thing from Fyrinnae, it should be the Pixie Epoxy. :)
Finally, the lip lustre. I only got one but I wish I had gotten more! They appear to be just like any other typical lip gloss but they aren't like lip gloss at all. They're dry, yet moisturizing. When I say "dry" I mean they stay on your lips for a very long while. They aren't sticky or slippery or anything like that. They all have different scents but mine is lychee scented and it smells delicious. It doesn't really have a flavor, which I like because when lip products taste good, I usually just end up eating them off within an hour. When I was picking what color I wanted, I actually didn't realize there was a whole second page of colors...at least not until after I had already placed my order. I know, I'm smart. But I know now, and will definitely be getting more! They have some really lovely colors. Here is what Lollipop-Pop looks like on me.
And that's about it! Fyrinnae is an awesome company that you should definitely try out! They're prices are reasonable, thought with all their color options I had a very hard time not getting carried away! ALL of their products are vegan too, which is good especially if you actually are vegan. I'm not, but I do like my make up to be. Again, I highly recommend Pixie Epoxy if you're someone who wears eyeshadow.
I hope this review was helpful! Now go try some Fyrinnae products for yourself! :)
By the way,
My blue Fyrinnae look matched my funky nails! :D
Have a great day!
