Fyrinnae – *You’re, Lorem Ipsum, Lucky Charmed, Cuddlefish, Shenanigans, Callipygian, Sorceress & Aztec Gold Swatches

6 Aug

Pic’s are clickable.


*You’re – now called Scarlet Macaw

Official description: This shade is a bright shimmery warm red filled with multi-color sparkle, much like Immortality and Shenanigans

My opinion: Unfortunately I don’t like reddish shades, but the shimmer is very pretty. *You’re is a jucy, like watermelon flesh color, that contains multicolored sparkles.




Lorem Ipsum

Official description: Deep shimmery blue, slightly subdued and lighter than navy, enhanced with lime green sparkle. Slightly brighter than it appears here. Not lip-safe.

My opinion: Well, I was a very dissapointed to see, that Lorem Ipsum is not a duochrome shade, like Digital Ferie, but darker for example. It’s still nice for a blue lover, but for me it’s just not enough interesting.




Lucky Charmed

Official description: Lush, metallic golden green with a touch of green sparkle throughout

My opinion: Bling bling! This is definetly a shade that steals the stage. You can’t miss it, it’s so bright! Very creamy metallic gold shade with some green accents. A Fyrinnae classic.





Official description: Cuddlefish is a vibrant violet, loaded with varying hues of purple and blue-violet sparkle, and is more blue-tone than it appears here. You’ll definitely want a sticky base or sealant with this shadow. Replaces our old Neo Universe, but with even more color saturation and sparkle. For a similar shade, but more vibrant and with shimmer instead of sparkle, see Parental Advisory. Not lip-safe.

My opinion: Very bright purple, similar to Parental Advisory, plus bright purple and blue fine glitter. For me it’s even better than Parental Advisory because of the added glitter. So if you want to shine bold this is THE WINNER.





Official description:  A  rainbow of sparkle fills rich, metallic gold over a dark base. This shade works well over primer, but you may find it appears best without a sticky base. Shenanigans is a replacement for Medieval Haunting: They’re nearly the same metallic finish and gold-on-black color, but this one has multi-color sparkle instead of just silver and gold.

My opinion: This is sooo complex. The description say’s it’s a replacement for Medieval Haunting, only the sparkle is multicolored, instead of silver and gold and I agree.. Anyway in the jar it looks like a “metallic soil” – it’s brown with cold accents and with million of sparkles. But applied on skin it turns more green. It’s still brown but has a greenish tinge. Very interesting, very unique! A must have.





Official description: Vibrant Kelly/emerald green shimmer on black. Great over regular primer, but over a sticky base it’s a gleaming jeweltone metallic green. Not lip-safe. (as for the name, just look it up. We’re not really sane here)

My opinion: Ohhh I’m so mad this is not more metallic. When looking at the jar I had high hopes for this but applied on skin it lost it’s glow. It’s not enough duochrome, because all I got applied on skin was the dark green base, but the turqoise sheen disappears. Similar to this, but less blue is Fyrinnae’s Dark Fantasy – an excellent color that really shines. But Callipygian…





Official description: Soft black shadow with shimmer which changes from a brilliant aqua to vibrant cool pink, depending on light and angle.

My opinion: A really interesting shade with a dark base that really shifts from turqoise, blurple to purple. Very pretty and unique.




Aztec Gold

Official description: Stunning deep metallic gold over a rich olive green base.
Originally a loose shadow from 2006, and brought back as pressed-only in November 2012. Contains no dyes.

My opinion: Woow, compaired to Lucky Charmed, Aztec Gold has more reddish tones in it and has a more satin finish than metallic. A stunner, a must have, just buy it please! Lol. Btw., you can’t buy this as a loose shadow, but you can afford it in pressed form.



I’m sorry, but I’m missing two pic’s for this shade. But I think that’s not really a problem, because the missing one’s are less important.


And a bonus photo – an eyemakeup, where i used Cuddlefish and Callipygian:

    They’re all so lovely. I just realised I own a sample of Callipygian but I’ve never used it! What’s wrong with me?
