I got a literal ton of Fyrinnae stuff from my parents for Christmas. I actually squealed audibly when I opened the package. I made a wishlist and gave it to them, not expecting to get EVERYTHING on the list... I forgot who I was dealing with and ended up with so much stuff. I figured I'd show it!
I swatched these with no base originally. The photos sat in my "unreviewed" folder for weeks and I decided to re-do them one night over Pixie Epoxy. Fyrinnae's colors are pretty on their own but something was off with my photos. Anyway, onto the swatches and FOTDs!
Top Row: Meerkat, Snow Bunny, Parental Advisory
Bottom Row: Fujiro, Faerie Glamour, Blue Whale
Meerkat: I got this from seeing it on Robyn's blog (I think?) and the color is just stunning. It's a medium purple with multi (mostly gold) shimmer and lighter purple undertones.
Snow Bunny: This is a pale lilac with a heavy iridescent flash. Gorgeous, but a bit powdery and tends to get muddy while blending over Pixie Epoxy. I had some difficulty with it.
Parental Advisory: I see this color and just think BAM! It's an insanely bright true purple (shows blue here) with magenta sparkle. Fantastic.
Fujiro: This is a hard color to describe... it's a cornflower blue with pink shimmer... sort of...
Faerie Glamour: Similar to High Voltage's Born to Rock, it's a blurple that shifts between a medium lilacy purple and a light blue. Interesting, but I had some issues with this shade as well.
Blue Whale: These don't look as similar in real life, I promise. This is a medium blue with purple and pink shimmer. Applies very nicely.

Top Row: Polar Bear, Lucky Charmed, Boytoy
Bottom Row: Tyr, Leif, Sleepy Hollow
Polar Bear: OMG... this color is amazing. That is all. It's a really good highlight for greens and golds... the color shift is awesome!
Lucky Charmed: This is a bronzey, vintage gold with a green undertone and teal sparks. Yes, I said sparks because they're not quite sparkles... you try to photograph them and they're gone, then they're there again!
Boytoy: A deep emerald green with a ton of lighter green and dark green glitter. Heavy on the fallout but gorgeous, so it's worth it.
Tyr: Godddd, can we get a more perfect green? This has a slight olive tone but is so deep and sexy. Love it!
Leif: Grass green with yellow and red sparkles. Very metallic.
Sleepy Hollow: Can I even describe this? It's a VERY vibrant blue with a teal shift and loose sparkles. I find myself staring at it and seeing more in it each time I do. One of my favorites.

Top Row: Snow Leopard and Daemon's Tail
Bottom Row: STFU and Mephisto
Snow Leopard: This and Daemon's Tail swatched poorly for some reason. Snow Leopard is a fantastic, nearly matte silvery taupe. I love it!
Daemon's Tail: Very complex burgundy with a load of other shimmers tossed in. Quite gorgeous... applies a little lighter than it swatches though, which is strange.
STFU: Ha! Love the name. Interesting burnt orange with loose orange sparkles. Surprisingly the fallout is pretty minimal with this, all things considered.
Mephisto: Man, what the hell IS this color? It shifts the second you think you know what it is... watch!
Is it red? Is it purple? Is that a gold shift? omgwtf. It's such a COOL color. It's got a matte purple overtone that shifts to a metallic golden red in certain lights. Really unique and quite possibly the most awesome eyeshadow I own, haha.
I had no real issues with these colors. I think I was having an off day when I tried a look with Snow Bunny, Faerie Glamour, Sleepy Hollow and Parental Advisory though. Nothing was blending right... specifically, Faerie Glamour and Snow Bunny were blending into a murky greenish purple color. It was really unattractive! I haven't had the courage to mess with them since so if I manage to finish that look, I will post it!
I do have two other looks to show you... the first is Polar Bear, Snow Leopard, Lucky Charmed and Boytoy. On my cheeks I had one of the blushes I got (that I lost the swatch of, rawr!) called Seduce. It's a pale purple that I was expecting to make me corpse like, but instead gave me a beautiful glow! I guess that's why they're called glow blushes :). No idea what was on my lips though... it may have been Maybelline Pink Please with Mac Springbean over top?
The other was one I really liked... it was Leif (on the lid), Tyr, Daemon's Tail and STFU (on the lower lash line). The blush was the other one I got, called Enchant. VERY intense color, but pretty. On the lips was Mac Flurry of Fun lipglass, I think (I really need to write this stuff down...). I was hoping Daemon's Tail would be a little darker but I still liked the look. Come to think of it, I think I used a bit of Evil Shades Wyvern to blend out the edges as well.
That's all for me! Until next time...
