My first ever Fyrinnae haul part 2: Eyepigments

 Hey, beauties!

As I promised in a post yesterday(khmm, sorry actually I am one day late), here is the second part of my Fyrinnae haul.  All these eyepigments are mini sizes, that means you get about 1/3 tbs of product. Each one of these costs 2 $.  There is am limit on how much mini/sample size pigments you can order once! It is 20 per order. 
I warn you now, this is picture heavy post! (and it took forever to write this, because I wanted to give you dupes etc. a ton of reasearch, because of course I don´t own all the makeup in the world to swatch it side by side).
These shadows were hard to photograph, because they are so brilliantly complex  AND I am not really used to my new camera yet - I hate that all the colors are not in focus, but what can I do... I tried this way and that and this was the best I could do at the moment.
Knickers in a Twist - cool toned taupe with sublte bronze sheen, satin, very nicely pigmented and smooth. When used dry, very close to MAC Moth Brown eyeshadow, which is limited edition. 
Mephisto-  Appears purple, but as I read from the fyrinnae homepage, it is actually deep royal blue with red sheen, metallic finish. When foiled, this one turns into rusty red shade. Very unique color! It was very hard to catch it on photo and it does change color when used on different bases, so look here for better swatches.
Freya- warm purple shimmer on black base, shimmer, really pigmented. Perfect for purple smokey eyes. Dupe for Urban Decay Jet eyeshadow, also similar to  Bare Escentuals' Brocade.
Parental Advisory-  it is vivid shimmery royal puprle which leans more on the blue side of spectrum. Matte when used try and slightly shimmery when used wet or over Pixie epoxy. This was my free sample, so I didn´t get to choose the color, but I am really happy that I got what I did. ;) This is the reformulated version. 
Meerkat-  Vibrant pink-purple with gold shimmer and sparkle highlight. IMO the shimmer looks more silver than gold. Least pigmented from the bunch, but still a bestseller.
Faerie Glamour Semi-matte violet base with an aqua shimmer that changes to a bright purple-pink when closer to light or seen at an angle. Medium color pay-off.
Digital Faerie-  Stunning deep sky blue with green shimmer, so that makes it turqoise. Very pretty color, nicely pigmented and shimmery. 
Te Amo- This shade is a glowing iridescent copper highlight, almost ghostly, despite how photos make it appear. A sticky base makes more color come though, but it works well and "glows" over regular primers.
Book of Dead- A rich, slightly aged gleaming gold, fit for Osiris himself (we could hope!), graced with flashes of sparkle in varying hues. Very pigmented again, shimmery. 
Shinkirou-   Gleaming, sparkly sheer highlight. This isn´t available at the moment. It is definitely sheer, but it is suitable for all over the lid too, not just for highlighting.
Rapunzel Had Extensions- first off all, what a hilarious name for an eyeshadow. Fyrinnae says that it is pale pink with a stunning brilliant light gold highlight, but to me it looks quite coral. Well, no matter how I describe this, I love it - peacy tones bring out green in my eyes ;)

 Top row is on bare skin and bottom row is with pixie epoxy.
On Bare skin! 
Have you heard from Fyrinnae before or have you tried theit pigments? I will definitely order some more when I use these up, but it will take me some time for sure.
Thank you for reading!

Hei, kaunitarid!

Pidin küll selle postituse juba eile teieni tooma, aga kahjuks läks väga kiireks ja ei jõudnud värvikirjeldusi lisada. Kokku sain 11 lauvärvi pigmenti - ise valisin 10 ja toon nimega Parental Advisory anti tasuta kingitusena kaasa. Piltidelt näete ka kui palju toodet saab mini-suuruses purgikeses, sest tegin need pildid kohe pärast kättesaamist. Nagu näete, siis tasuta näidist on palju vähem. 
Üks purgike maksis 2$ ja sample/mini suuruses tooteid lubatakse ühes tellimuses tellida kuni 20 tk - no arusaadav ju ka, kuna tegu on väikefirmaga ning kindlasti on nende jaoks lihtsam ja odavam müüa suuremaid koguseid korraga. Kuna ma aga tahan katsetada rohkem erinevaid toone, kui ainult paar tükki, siis tellin alati oma pigmendid minisuuruses. Neist jätkub kindlasti päris mitmeks korraks, kuna tugeva pigmendi tõttu ei kulu neid palju. 
Fyrinnae on tuntud kui väga omapäraste toonide tootja, sest nii keerulisi ja mänglevaid toone ei ole mujal väga palju nähtud. Keeruline, sest enamik neist on olenevalt vaatenurgast värvimuutvad ehk duochrome toonid- mõnusad kameelionid. :) 
Ma toone ükshaaval eesti keeles kirjeldama ei hakka, las igaüks vaatab ise pilte ja otsustab.. enamik laupigmente on metallikud või sädelevad. Kõik peale Meerkati olid kas hea või suurepärase pigmendiga. 
Ülemisel swatchide pildil on kõigepealt 2 ridapäevavalguses ning seejärel 2 rida välguga - mõlema puhul siis alumine rida kantud pixie epoxy peale. 
Alumisel swatchide pildil on näited tehtud paljale nahale ja veidi suuremale alale, jällegi ülemine osa pildist on päevavalguses ja alumine päevavalgus+välk. 
Kindlasti kavatsen ka tulevikus Fyrinnaest pigmente tellida, enne pean praegused ära kasutama. :D
Ma usun, et väga palju ei ole Eestis Fyrinnaest kuulnud, nii et ma ei hakka küsima, et mida te ise proovinud olete. Loomulikult kui on kogemusi, siis võite kommentaarides neid alati minuga jagada.

Aitäh, et lugesite!
