In this review I’ll be looking at Fyrinnae loose eyeshadow singles in the shades Lucky Charmed, Forest Dragon, Dark Fantasy, and Gilded Wings.
This eye look was created using Lucky Charmed all over the lid, Forest Dragon in the crease, Dark Fantasy in the outer corner of the eye, and Gilded Wings in the inner corner. Fyrinnae Beyond Binary was used as a brow highlight (covered in Fyrinnae Loose Eyeshadow Singles Review Part 1). All shadows were applied over Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy and Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden. Paired with Tarte Sex Kitten eyeliner and Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara.
Fyrinnae Lucky Charmed is a shimmery loose eyeshadow that comes in a mini jar for $2.95USD or a full sized jar for $6.95USD on Fyrinnae’s website. Fyrinnae describes this shade as “lush, metallic warm green with a touch of cooler green sparkle throughout.” I found this color to be a very yellow green — I think I would actually call this chartreuse. The cool green sparkle was actually noticeable.
The application of this shade was very smooth and the pigmentation was quite good for a lighter shade — I only had to apply one layer of the shadow to get nice opaque coverage. I really liked this shade as a base for green eyeshadow looks since it has a green tint that really blends well with other green shadows. It also works well as an inner corner highlight. When used with primer, this shade lasted me the entire day without creasing or fading.
Fantastic pigmentation and smooth application. Works very well with other green eyeshadows.
Fyrinnae Forest Dragon is a shimmery loose eyeshadow that comes in a mini jar for $2.95USD or a full sized jar for $6.95USD on Fyrinnae’s website. Fyrinnae describes this shade as “lush, multi-hued metallic green.” While the swatch on Fyrinnae’s website seems to be a warm toned green with gold, I actually found this shade to be a little cooler toned forest green.
The application of this shade was very smooth and the pigmentation was good. I found this shade applied well using a fluffy blending brush, although I have had luck using about any eyeshadow brush and fingers to apply. This shade blended well into the crease (which you can see in the eye look above), but I think it could be used on the outer corner or even all over the lid. Like Lucky Charmed, this shade lasted me the entire day without creasing or fading.
An excellent basic green that’s easy to blend.
Fyrinnae Dark Fantasy is one of Fyrinnae’s specialty arcane magic loose eyeshadows that change color depending on the angle and type of light shined on it. Arcane magics are a little more expensive than normal loose eyeshadows: $3USD for a mini jar and $7.55USD for a full sized jar on Fyrinnae’s website. According to Fyrinnae, this shade is “an intense grass green shimmer on a black base, which changes to golden peach to deep coral at an angle or close to light. It’s hard to tell the color change on yourself, so you’ll have to ask a friend if they can see it. The color that I saw in most lighting was a very dark shimmery green.
While the above shades were usable without glitter primer, I found this shade really needed it for the green glitter to show through (without it the shade just kind of looked black). This shade had more fallout than many of the other Fyrinnae eyeshadows, although that’s somewhat understandable given how glittery it is. I had the best luck applying this shade with my fingers; using a brush did not seem to adhere the shadow as well to the lid. Once adhered, the shade was able to last all day without fallout.
A nice dark green but difficult to apply. Really needs glitter primer.
Fyrinnae Gilded Wings is a shimmery loose eyeshadow that comes in a mini jar for $2.95USD or a full sized jar for $6.95USD on Fyrinnae’s website. Fyrinnae describes this shade as “intense, saturated metallic bronze-gold.” I would describe this shade as an antique gold — obviously a gold color but not as yellow as a traditional gold. There was a fair amount of glitter in this shadow.
Due to the larger amount of glitter in this shadow, I think a glitter primer would be a good idea to bring out the sparkle and to prevent fallout. While other glittery Fyrinnae shades had some trouble with application, I actually found this one to go on pretty smooth. The pigmentation was quite good so the shade could go on opaque in one layer, even over darker shades. I really like this shade as an inner corner highlight. With primer, this shade lasted all day without creasing or fading.
A vibrant antique gold with smooth application. A little prone to fallout.
