The only problem for me was that I became so overwhelmed everytime I went on the site - Fyrinnae have so many gorgeous shades that I wanted one of everything! But a couple of months ago I did some research and made a shortlist of the products I really wanted to try. That's how I ended up with these:
I was so impressed with this first set that I immediately placed a second order and soon more Fyrinnae goodies had arrived:
Stunners, aren't they? These are all samples by the way and there is more than enough product in each pot to use numerous times.
Now, formula wise, Fyrinnae shadows are tricky. Like minerals, you'll most likely end up with a grubby smudge of yuck if you attempt to rub or even blend in some cases, these shades during application. The way to use these to ensure their full impact is to pat them on. Some will require a sticky base, like Fyrinnae Epoxy (of which you can see the sample in the first image above), whereas some actually work better without Epoxy underneath. Either way it takes a little experimentation before you perfect application of Fyrinnaes. All the swatches were done using a thin layer of Epoxy underneath.
Like any cosmetic company, Fyrinnae occasionally discontinues shades so if you're lusting after a particular eyeshadow make sure you grab it while you can. As a company, Fyrinnae has fantastic customer service. I had a few enquiries, a couple of notes and requests to add to my orders and they not only did what I asked, they were absolutely lovely about it (therefore pretty much guaranteeing repeat business from me!).
Will I be purchasing from Fyrinnae again? Just look at the photos! Of course I will! I can't resist such pretties!
