Fyrinnae – Dinosaur Plushie Swatch

Dinosaur Plushie


If you are a Fyrinnae lover like me and don’t already own Dinosaur Plushie, you are missing a whole thing. This shade is one of the best from Fyrinnae.

Official description: A flamboyant, eclectic dinosaur covered in glitter, perhaps. Name is unrelated to shade…as usual. Dinosaur Plushie is filled with multi-colored sparkle, some of which can change hue in different light. Transparent over most primers or applied dry (don’t apply this dry unless you’re going for that all-over disco queen look), but over sticky base, like our Pixie Epoxy, it is a gleaming pale metallic with many flashes of colours. Replaces our old shade Equality (and Mischief Makers), but Dino is much more sparkling and multi-dimensional.

My opinion: Dinosaur Plushie has everything to be a winner shade. It’s has a cool name, is sparkly, bold, fine milled. You can apply it very sheer, just to add some sparkle or going bold, because it’s very buildable. It’s a light to medium silver color with sparkles that go form copper to bright blue. Just gorgeous. You can use it as a tearduct going bold, a highlighter under browbone, applied over an another shade, or as the main role, using it alone on the lid.



Look at this sparkles!


A great winter shade IMO.


Do you see the copper sparkles above?!


Great results, over a black base can be seen here 😉

Halloween shoppe – Fyrinnae!

29 Oct

Here are all my Fyrinnae Halloween swatches to help you in the spooky time of the year!

Btw., somewhere I was reading about that Fyrinnae would release a new Halloween collection this year! I hope this is true!

Unfortunately Fyrinnae confirmed, that this is not true 😦 I will still buy something from them because they are my Nr.1 😀

Fyrinnae’s Halloween 2009 Swatches

  • Medieval Haunting: check out Medieval Haunting! It’s not available anymore, but it has a replacement: Shenanigans. Shenanigans is a must have for all metallic shade lovers.
  • Mephisto: at this time, Mephisto is not available 😦 but I hope it comes back very soon! It’s my favourite indie shade!
  • Nevermore & New Moons Light: mixed together this two discountinued shades: Nevermore and New Moons Light would probably give the shade Parental Advisory (but this has also some shimmer in it), so go for it.
  • Samhain Spirits: this gem is discountinued.. Maybe try Sultry Samhain or Bonfire Spirits?
  • Sleepy Hollow: Love the name! I see this movie every fall and still love it. Sleepy Hollow is so underestimated! It’s a gorgeous azure-turquoise shade with golden sparkles! When you love Digital Faerie you will adore this shade!

 Fyrinnae’s Halloween 2011 Swatches

  • Alchemist’s Curse & Raven’s Prophecy: when you want a bold, but dark look pick these two. Blacks with some color glimmer. Also, fabulous names. When you like Alchemist’s Curse and Raven’s Prophecy (shades with a black base and a pinch of twinkle) also try Bastet, Fyre and Ice, Immortality, Kuroneko and Pumpkinfire.
  • Are you my Mummy?: when you love shifting shades this is a winner! Are you my mummy? shifts from an aquatic creature skin color to a purple pink glow!
  • Wake not the Dead: this shade is not available anymore. For a similar vibe, maybe try Blogger Beauty!
  • Bride of Frankenstein: like WNTD it’s not available anymore. Try already mentioned Digital Faerie and Sleepy Hollow instead!
  • Dorian Grey: also this is a not selling shade anymore.
  • Purgatory: A bloody, bright red, like a ruby gem color on a black base. Purgatory is a MUST HAVE for HALLOWEEN!
  • Book of the Dead: One of my favourites. A neutral bright gold leaning to yellow (the picture on the official side is not really accurate). If Polar Bear was making your skin sick, you must IMMEDIATELY try Book of the Dead.
  • Steampunk: You don’t own Steampunk? Then you are missing one of the best Fyrinnae shades. This gem is a smooth metallic shade that shifts from warm soil color to fuchsia to mossy green. Just stunning!!!

Fyrinnae – Callipygian, Tapir, Conjuror & Freya Swatches

7 Aug

Pic’s are clickable.


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: I know I swatched Callipygian already in the previous post, but I just wanted to try it the second time to find out if I did applied it properly or not in the first try. I didn’t liked it in the first try, but now I’m more conviced. It’s still not an easy shade to work with it, especially applied without any base or water, but at least I love it combined with Pixy Epoxy – SEE SECOND PHOTO!




Official description: A lush, deep, burgundy shade with a satin finish. Slightly more purple than it appears here.

My opinion: Matte, dark mauve shade. Very onedimensional, but I loove the name, lol.



Official description: Rich burgundy-brick shade filled with shimmer that changes from aqua to bright crimson-pink, depending on proximity to light or angle.

My opinion: A good duochrome shade, that it’s not enough famous IMO! It’s a burnt umber shade with an amazing turqoise shift.

Official description: Glowing warm purple shimmer on black.

My opinion: Shimmering purple on black base. Similar to discontiniued Oberon, but Freya is warmer. I love the name!

Thanks for watching!

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:

Fyrinnae news!

Fyrinnae strikes again! They have refreshed their site appearance, added four new shades next to these four new shades that I already mentioned and reformulated a color. And that’s not all, they will be probably add some more new colors. Yaaay! I’m just sad that I just set an order at the beginning of april and I’m now broken x___X

From L-R: Bitey Tyrannosaur, Blogger Beauty, Picture it: Sicily & Pteranodon.



The reformulated shade, Parental Advisory.

Which is your favourite? Mine is Bitey Tyrannosaur! I think it will be similar to Danse Macabre from Fyrinnae’s Dia De Los Muertos Collection. And the coral shade reminds me on Painted Roses, from Fyrinnae’s Mad Tea Party Collection.
