Swatch Saturday: Fyrinnae

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 20 - 2011

As I write this, the webshop for Fyrinnae is open.  It won’t be for long… that’s about as certain as death, taxes and all that other stuff.  From a convenience and CS point of view, they’re not my favourite company to deal with but it’s undeniable that they make some very, very pretty shadows indeed.

Here are some of my favourites:

Yep, it’s all about the neutrals and purples as far as I’m concerned!

If I had to narrow it down to my three most used Fyrinnae shades?  I’d say: Knickers in a Twist, Forbidden Lover and Beholder.

Do you love Fyrinnae?  What is your most used Fyrinnae shade?

  1. I haven’t tried anything (yet) which is such a shame. But I have a huge wish list, so thanks for swatches!

  2. Hannah says:

    I’d heard rumours that Fyrinnae were closing down, it’s not true is it?!

  3. Leah says:

    Maneki Neko is a Japanese lucky cat, fact lovers (the kind that waves at you cheerily from shop windows).

    I haven’t tried anything from Fyrinnae either but it all looks awesome. I’ve heard great stuff about their eyeshadow primer.

  4. Claire says:

    Atomic Afterglow looks amazing *~
    The bronzes and gold tones look great too. I really want to try some stuff from Fyrinnae but always been put off by the fact you have to wait so long – I’m all about the instant gratification :/

    those colors are delish!

  6. shanice says:

    I’ve never heard of this brand but the colours are so pretty!

    Species 8472?!! I just had a mini Star Trek nerdgasm XD

  8. Looks like they are gone again (already). The web site is empty, nothing on the page.

    Oh, well, never tried it, so I don’t know what I am missing.

  9. Crystal says:

    The website was up last week for an hour or so and I emailed them and they said it was a mistake, it was not supposed to be online. They responded super fast to my email, next email I asked if they were closing…no answer

  10. Jules says:

    Their Pixie Epoxy is the best eyeshadow setter I’ve ever tried. I have hit-or-miss feelings on the shadows themselves; nice colours, but sometimes they apply differently than I expect. They do close often, and I worry that it will be for good sooner rather than later.

    Lovely colours, totally wasted on me, I need some EOTD posts so that I can pretend my eyes are your eyes. Thanks for this. Jan x

  12. Oh Shiny says:

    Yep, down again. Aargh, so annoying, I wanted to check out if they have any new products and order Pixie Epoxy, but every time I go to their website it’s down! I really hope they sort out the issue and keep it up!!
