Fyrinnae Lucky Charmed Eyeshadow
Fyrinnae Lucky Charmed Eyeshadow ($6.25 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “lush, metallic golden green with a touch of green sparkle throughout.” It’s a rich, medium-dark molten gold with strong yellow and brown undertones and a subtle green micro-shimmer. It was mostly opaque applied with a damp brush or applied over Pixie Epoxy. Fyrinnae Aztec Gold is more metallic and slightly greener. Too Faced Instigator is more golden. Marc Jacobs The Starlet #5 is lighter. Urban Decay Spell #1 is glittery. Urban Decay Stargazer is greener. NARS Paramaribo #1 is similar. Le Metier de Beaute Chameleon is warmer, browner. Make Up For Ever #11 is a cream product, lighter. Inglot #433 is similar. See comparison swatches.
Wicked Eyeshadow ($6.25 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “deep, dark purple with turquoise shimmer.” It’s a rich, dark pink-toned purple base with teal shimmer. It’s very interesting and complex, and I don’t have anything quite like this that I can recall. The downside is that it feels somewhat dry, and it didn’t apply as smoothly or as evenly as many other Fyrinnae eyeshadows have for me. It seemed to be an eyeshadow that applied differently every time I tried it.
Biker Chic Eyeshadow ($6.25 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “turquoise-blue sparkle on a deep black base.” It’s a cool-toned, dark black base color with blue-teal shimmer. Applied dry, it is blacker with only a smattering of shimmer, but applied over Pixie Epoxy, then the shimmer is much more apparent. The texture is very finely-milled, but it’s definitely a shade that it is easier blended when it is dry than wet or used over Pixie Epoxy, as it tends to stick slightly. I thought it was best when applied over Pixie Epoxy to maximize the shimmer, and then going over it the edge lightly with dry product to blend. Sephora Midnight Swim isn’t black-based. Milani Mix It Up is greener. MAC Magic Spell is darker, less blue/teal. See comparison swatches.
When I wore these three together, I had had slight fading with Wicked after seven hours but the other shades did not show any signs of wear (no primer but over Pixie Epoxy). Over a primer (and Pixie Epoxy), I still saw some fading with Wicked, but it wasn’t until eight and a half hours, while the other shades continued to remain strong and crease-free.
