Fyrinnae Electric Stardust Arcane Magic Eyeshadow

Fyrinnae Electric Stardust Arcane Magic Eyeshadow ($6.80 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “light, glowing, mint green sparkle.” It’s a light, pastel green with a subtle cool undertone and a frosted, sparkling finish. It is quite a bit darker and has a more frosted finish compared to Fyrinnae Jade Ghost, which I reviewed recently. Guerlain Coup de Foudre #3 is slightly gray in comparison but is close. Cinderella Cinderelly is nearly matte and is more cooler-toned. Make Up For Ever #34 is close in color, perhaps appearing darker because it has a satin finish.

MAC Mooncake Pro Longwear Paint Pot

MAC Mooncake Pro Longwear Paint Pot ($18.50 for 0.17 oz.) is described as a “warm beige.” It’s a golden beige with pale champagne sparkle and shimmer. I’m surprised MAC’s description didn’t mention any shimmer, pearl, or sparkle, because it is very sparkly. Urban Decay Space Cowboy is darker and more glittery. MAC Jaunty is lighter, less sparkly. MAC Summer Haze is more peach-hued and frosted. MAC Sweet Satisfaction is a bit browner and less shimmery. MAC Pure Flash is lighter.

Fyrinnae Jade Ghost Eyeshadow

Fyrinnae Jade Ghost Eyeshadow ($8.25 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “slightly shimmery pale white-green … “an iridescent glow of light green shimmer and a touch of subdued sparkle.” It’s a pale, aqua green with a subtle golden shimmer-sheen. I don’t really have anything quite like this in my stash. Lancome Fashion Forward is the closest, but it is bluer and less golden. Tarina Tarantino Wonderful #4 is greener, less aqua/pastel.

Estee Lauder Sinister Stay-On Shadow Paint ($24.00 for 0.14 oz.) is medium-dark black with silver sparkle. MAC Blackground has a warmer base and smaller shimmer. Urban Decay Oil Slick is also a bit warmer (and a powder product). Buxom Black Lab is similar but has multi-colored sparkle.

It had so-so color payoff; it is more easily applied as a sheer wash of color (so then it turns into a dark gray), and if you attempt to build up the color, it doesn’t work out so well. It tended to bunch up and layer in odd ways so that it didn’t give you a smooth, even result. The texture was smoother than Steel, but it had a very dry, almost flaky texture once it dried down. The color came off in chunks throughout the day. I tested it twice just to be sure, but it was the same: splotchy color, fall out, and then light creasing after eight hours.
