Fyrinnae Arcane Magic Swatches

Fyrinnae Arcane Magics are special color changing loose eyeshadows. While a similar idea to duochrome eyeshadows, they differ in that they have a highlight that changes hue depending on how light hits it as opposed to just a single highlight color layered over a different colored base. They tend to have a little more dramatic of a color change than a typical duochrome eyeshadow These shades retail for $7.55USD for a full sized jar or $3.00USD for a mini jar and can be purchased here.

While many of the general Fyrinnae loose eyeshadows work perfectly fine without a glitter primer, the Arcane Magics really work much better with it, especially to get a noticeable color shift. That said, many of these will adhere fine to the lid without glitter primer, just without the pronounced color shift.

In an effort to show the color changing effects of these shadows, the arm swatches are taken with and without flash photography (note that the eye swatches are taken without flash). However, the color shift is generally much more apparent in person and difficult to capture on camera.
