Fyrinnae Sleepy Hollow is described as a lush, deep ocean blue with a flash of sage green as the light hits with a touch of gold sparkle. It appears as an iridescent aqua with a gold microsparkle on my skin. If you love and collect Teal eyeshadows, this is definitely a great addition. If you are not a fan of glitter on eyeshadows because of fall outs, fear not because there won’t be any. Teals act as show stoppers which draw a lot of attention to detail on the eyes. The color is very much appreciated when applied over Pixie Epoxy.
I accidentally dropped this eyeshadow upon receipt due to my excitement. I fixed it by adding 2 drops of 70% ethanol, pressed back firmly with a tissue paper and air dried for 24 hours. I apologized for its busted appearance.
Fyrinnae Love Potion is described as a medium pink with a highlight of pale silvery green shimmer. It appears as a cool toned hot pink which turns into a metallic hot pink with a greenish silver glitter. This is a part of the Arcane Magic Collection, and they tend to change its color depending on the type and the angle of the light source. They are one of a kind shades but not considered as duochromes. I wore this to work a couple days ago and I received a lot of compliments from co-workers. I think this shade is a great color contrast on my complexion once paired with metallic neutrals.
Fyrinnae Sleepy Hollow is one of the unique Teal eyeshadows I’ve owned. It got this medium turquoise which shifts into an aqua iridescence. For both of these eyeshadows, the color change depends with the type of light, the angle where it hits and the base used. Fyrinnae Love Potion is a hot pink with an edge. It starts with a cool toned pink with a satin finish then shifts to a metallic hot pink with a greenish silver glitter. Although they do have glitter on them, they are very fine which makes it almost metallic. These lasted for 9 hours on me without any primer nor base and over 14 hours with a primer/base and setting spray. I did not notice any fall outs at all, even with the presence of microglitters. The pigmentation is superb, 2 sweeps will give you the coverage you need. The texture is super fine like butter but neither too soft, chalky nor powdery. The pigment just sticks pretty well on your brush, that you no longer need to tap it off before you apply. Both of these did not leave any stain on my skin.
Have I convinced you enough to try any of Fyrinnae’s pressed eyeshadows? What about the Teals and Hot Pinks like Fyrinnae’s Sleepy Hollow and Love Potion?
