Fyrinnae Eyeshadows!

My Fyrinnae eye shadows arrived in the mail today! Shipping was incredibly fast, I only had to wait three days. I'm so excited at how beautiful these shadows are in person! Seriously, the swatches online don't compare to how pretty they really are in person! 

What is Fyrinnae? Fyrinnae is an independent cosmetics company that manufactures vegan cosmetics. They are not a mineral makeup company. Most of their cosmetics can be purchased in a sample sizes, which is what I did since this is my first time trying them!

What I Ordered: 
  • Mini Pumpkinfire Loose Eye Shadow -$2 (1/3 tsp in jar) 
  • Mini Immortality  Loose Eye Shadow- $2 (1/3 tsp in jar) 
  • Mini Knickers in a Twist Loose Eye Shadow- $2  (1/3 tsp in jar) 
  • Mini Arcane Magic Eye Shadow: Steampunk-$2 (1/4 tsp in jar)
  • Mini Arcane Magic Eye Shadow : Raven's Prophecy-$2  (1/4 tsp in jar)
  • Free Sample: Gilded Wings Loose Eye Shadow
I think it's great that Fyrinnae has the option to buy sample sizes, especially for newcomers that aren't going to know what they like. It's just an awesome option for people who want to try something, without having to totally commit. More cosmetics companies should do this! 

Packaging: The packaging was very secure. I didn't receive any open jars, and there was no fallout at all. I was pleased that it came in a bubble wrap envelope, and inside it were the jars wrapped in a black plastic bag. When I opened the black bag, I was surprised to see the little jars wrapped in cute rainbow cellophane. It was the perfect touch! Plus, the copy of my receipt had a hand-written "thank you" on it. It's always nice to know that a company cares about their customers.

Gilded Wings

This was the free sample that I received with my order. Described as an "intense bronze-gold". It's unlike any gold I've ever seen! It's not your typical yellow gold, which is why it's so unique. I can see this as a universal shade that can flatter any eye color, and skin tone. 

This is an "Arcane Magic" shadow, which means that at different angles the shade will change colors. It's described on their website as an "antiqued deep copper on black, with a touch of gold sparkle and hues of pink. Move it toward light or change the angle, and it becomes gold to chartreuse".  I can't wait to see if it really does change colors! So excited! 

Knickers in a Twist
This shade is described as a "deep taupe with subtle bronze shimmer". That's the perfect way to describe it. Looks like it would be a perfect crease shade! 

Described as a "rainbow of sparkle in soft black", this shadow really does have specks of every color. It's hard to capture what it really looks like in a photo, because it's so multi-faceted. 

Pumpkinfire is described as a "brilliant coppery-orange sparkle and shimmer in opaque, yet blendable black." This shadow is gorgeous. The copper and orange sparkles gleam so much more in person! It's a really pretty color, I've never seen anything like it before. 

Raven's Prophecy 
I think this one is my favorite. It's described as a "deep black that glitters with lime and pale blue. Closer to light or at different angles, and the sparkle takes on a pink and turquoise appearance." It's so awesome, the picture doesn't even begin to cover how intense it is! 

I'm really happy with my order! Fyrinnae offers a variety of colors and finishes of shadows that are reasonably priced and fairly unique. I know that I will be ordering again in the future. I can't wait to try these out! 


  1. These are absolutely gorgeous. I agree, they are all pretty unique! I'm not much of an eyeshadow wearer, but I might have to check them out. Also, I just found your blog and I've been going through it for almost an hour now, love it! :)


    1. Eyeshadows are one of my weaknesses! Fyrinnae is a great place to order from if you're looking for something different and unique.

      Thank you for stopping by my blog! :)

  2. These look awesome! I need to put in an order with Fyrinnae. They have incredible prices and I admire how they run their business. Your shades look really great.
