In this review I’ll be looking at Fyrinnae loose eyeshadow singles in the shades Winter Sunrise, Pyromantic Erotica, Diamonds from Mars, Yurei’s Wrath, Nepenthe, and Aphrodite’s Evening Gown.
This purple and orange eye look was created with Winter Sunrise all over the lid, Pyromantic Erotica in the inner corner, Diamonds from Mars and Yurei’s Wrath in the crease, and Nepenthe and Aphrodite’s Evening Gown in the outer corner of the eye. Beyond Binary (covered in Fyrinnae Loose Eyeshadow Singles Review Part 1) was used as a brow bone highlight. All shadows were applied over Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy and Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden. Also used was Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eyeliner pencil in Psychedelic Sister and Chanel Le Volume de Chanel mascara.
Fyrinnae Winter Sunrise is a glowing 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, multi-hued pink with hints of orange.” This shade is much less glittery than other Fyrinnae shadows and has more of a satin finish. The color is a glowing ethereal pink.
This shade has a velvety texture and smooth application. While I did apply it over glitter primer, I think it will work just fine with regular primer. Because of its subtle shimmer and light color, it could be used as a highlighter on some skin tones. This shadow, in my opinion, works best layered over other shadows or liner — it gives a glowing, iridescent pink highlight to other colors. I especially like this shadow layered over black eyeliner. Note that this shade is a decent dupe for Opal in the Kat Von D Alchemist palette.
A versatile shade with very smooth application
Pyromantic Erotica is a specialty loose eyeshadow called arcane magic that sells for $3USD for a mini jar or $7.55 for a full sized jar on Fyrinnae’s website. According to Fyrinnae, this shade is a “deep orange with an obvious chartreuse highlight. As it gets closer to light, the shadow changes to a brighter, gleaming orange.” For the most part, the shade looked like a bright, coppery orange. However, when I photographed in with flash, it did looking like an almost pinkish orange.
In color, I find this shade similar to the Fyrinnae shade Electro-Koi. However, I find this shade easier to apply due to it having smaller glitter particles. I think this shade would apply fine with regular primer, but a glitter primer is necessary to really get the color changing effect and minimize fallout. The pigmentation of this shadow was decent but did require some building up. It couldn’t effectively cover darker shadows with good opacity. With glitter primer, this shadow lasted all day without fallout.
An easy to apply shade with little fallout but less pigmentation
Fyrinnae Diamonds from Mars is a specialty loose eyeshadow called arcane magic that sells for $3USD for a mini jar or $7.55 for a full sized jar on Fyrinnae’s website. Fyrinnae describes this shade as a “neutral, matte pink base filled with shimmer which turns from coppery-red to yellow-green.” This shadow usually looks like a coral, but when I photographed it with flash there was a very obvious color change to a bright pink. I was never really able to see the yellow-green color.
Like Pyromantic Erotica, this shade really needs a glitter primer if you want a pronounced color shift. Pigmentation was fairly good, and the shadow could cover some darker shadows to some degree. I was able to apply the shadow smoothly with all of my shadow brushes and my fingers, although there was some fallout. Once adhered, this shadow lasted all day.
A smooth and fairly pigmented shade but prone to fallout
Fyrinnae Yurei’s Wrath is a specialty loose eyeshadow called arcane magic that sells for $3USD for a mini jar or $7.55 for a full sized jar on Fyrinnae’s website. According to Fyrinnae, this shade is a “very striking satiny metallic pink-red, which turns to a warm red to orange to golden-orange.” I found this shade to be similar to Diamonds from Mars but a little more pink. When I photographed the shadow with flash, I could see it change to a more fuchsia color.
Compared to Diamonds from Mars, this shadow had smoother application due to its much more finely ground glitter particles. I don’t think glitter primer is as necessary for this shade since it has a matte base and less glitter. The fallout was minimal during application and the pigmentation was good. When I applied it with primer, this shade lasted all day without creasing or fading.
A very smooth and velvety shadow with minimal fallout
Fyrinnae Nepenthe 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 desccribes this shade as a “vivid, metallic Byzantium purple.” In person, this shadow is a very bright and very warm purple.
This shadow has a very smooth application and good pigmentation. It doesn’t require much shadow to get good coverage, and it’s able to cover other darker colors. To get a really metallic look, glitter primer should be used, but the shadow also applies well over just regular primer. Fortunately, this shade doesn’t stain skin despite being very bright. It does still last all day without creasing or fading.
A vivid and rich purple with excellent pigmentation
Fyrinnae Aphrodite’s Evening Gown is a specialty loose eyeshadow called arcane magic that sells for $3USD for a mini jar or $7.55 for a full sized jar on Fyrinnae’s website. Fyrinnae describes this shade as a “dark purple base with satin shimmer overlay, which turns from blue-violet to pink to red.” This shadow is generally a sparkly cool-toned violet, but I could see it shift to a fuchsia when I photographed it with flash. I never really saw it turn red.
This shadow is somewhat similar to Nepenthe but not nearly as warm-toned and also darker. I found Nepenthe’s application to be smoother, but this shade’s application was still decent. There was a little fallout when applying but not once it was adhered to the lid — the shadow was able to last all day without creasing or fading and without fallout.
Smooth and pigmented but a little prone to fallout
