In this review I’ll be looking at Fyrinnae loose eyeshadow singles in the shades Aye, Captain, Dragon’s Wing, Digital Faerie, Zanzibar, and Birb of Paradise.
This green and blue eye look was created with Dragon’s Wing all over the lid, Digital Faerie and Zanzibar in the crease, Birb of Paradise in the outer corner of the eye, and Aye, Captain in the inner corner and lower lash line. All shadows were applied over Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy and Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden. Also used were Stila Stay All Day liquid eyeliner in Midnight and Chanel Le Volume de Chanel mascara.
Fyrinnae Dragon’s Wing is a shimmery loose eyeshadow that sells for $2.95USD for a mini jar or $6.95USD for a full sized jar on Fyrinnae’s website. Fyrinnae describes this shade as a “shimmery emerald green with a slight aqua highlight.” I found this description pretty accurate, and the blue tone highlight actually showed through.
This shade had a smooth application with both brushes and fingers. The pigmentation was quite opaque and only required one layer to get good coverage. Regular primer was sufficient to get this shadow to stay all day without creasing or fading, but a glitter primer helped bring out the blue highlight. My only complaint with this shade is that it does stain skin a little.
A pigmented shade with smooth application but can stain skin
Fyrinnae Digital Faerie is a shimmery loose eyeshadow that sells for $2.95USD for a mini jar or $6.95USD for a full sized jar on Fyrinnae’s website. Fyrinnae describes this shade as a “stunning deep sky blue with green shimmer.” I found this shade to be a brilliant turquoise that was full of glitter particles.
I generally didn’t have issues applying this shade as its application was quite smooth. However, it was prone to fallout, possibly due to its large amount of glitter. Using a glitter primer seemed to help with the fallout and extended the wear time of the shadow. Pigmentation for this shadow was fairly good. This shade also stained skin a little.
A well pigmented shadow but prone to fallout and can stain skin
Fyrinnae Zanzibar is a shimmery loose eyeshadow that sells for $2.95USD for a mini jar or $6.95USD for a full sized jar on Fyrinnae’s website. According to Fyrinnae, this shade is a “vibrant deep turquoise topped with a greenish-gold highlight and overall metallic finish.” This shade is quite similar to Digital Faerie but has a more apparent highlight and a less glittery and more metallic finish.
I found this shadow to be smoother to apply and less prone to fallout than Digital Faerie. This shade could be applied without glitter primer, but the glitter primer makes the gold highlight stand out more. It only took one layer to achieve good opacity with this color, and the color stayed all day without creasing or fading. Like the above two shades, this shadow does stain skin a little.
A smooth and pigmented metallic that can stain skin
Fyrinnae Birb of Paradise is a nearly matte loose eyeshadow that sells for $2.95USD for a mini jar or $6.95USD for a full sized jar on Fyrinnae’s website. Fyrinnae describes this shades as “glowing royal blue tops a velvety deep brown base hue.” I found the finish of this shade to be almost matte, and the color was a very dark blue.
The application of this shade was difficult — the color did not want to adhere to my lid, even when using glitter primer. As a result, the color went on patchy and was prone to sheering out when blending. Because of the difficulty adhering, there was also a lot of fallout. I had the best luck getting the shadow to stick when I applied with my fingers. This color did have decent lasting power once adhered, but I found it to fade a little faster than other Fyrinnae shadows.
Patchy application prone to sheering out that lacks the staying power of other Fyrinnae shadows
Fyrinnae Aye, Captain is a glittery loose eyeshadow that sells for $2.95USD for a mini jar or $6.95USD for a full sized jar on Fyrinnae’s website. According to Fyrinnae, this shade is a “glowing, complex chartreuse filled with varying hues of green and yellow. I found that this shade was more of a lime green with a lot of glitter.
Like some other Fyrinnae shades, this shadow contains larger glitter particles that necessitate using a glitter primer. These glitter particles also made the shade more prone to fallout. The pigmentation of this shadow was not as great as some of the other shadows — it was a little more sheer and couldn’t easily cover a darker color. However, once the shade was built up to the desired opacity, it did last all day without creasing or fading.
A lovely color but could be a little more pigmented
