Fyrinnae Electric Stardust Arcane Magic Eyeshadow
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.

Arcane Magic eyeshadows are designed to “[change] hue depending on how the light [hit them].” With this particular change, Fyrinnae has noted that the change is subtler compared to other shades in the range. Applied damp, it has semi-opaque color, and applied and patted over Fyrinnae’s Pixie Epoxy, it applied more smoothly and had better opacity. The way this particular shade seems to change is that it turns cooler-toned, almost like a bluish-aqua at a distance. It has a soft, silky texture and feels fine with a little sparkle in it. Applied damp over bare lids, it lasted without creasing for seven hours, over Pixie Epoxy, seven and a half hours (which is designed to minimize fall out, not to prevent creasing or act as an eyeshadow base); and layered over an eyeshadow primer, no creasing after nine hours. There was some minor fall out when it was not worn with Pixie Epoxy–a little but not noticeable unless you get really close and start looking for it.

Also: Fyrinnae tweaked the formula on their loose eyeshadows slightly in January of this year (I purchased this in 2012), and it is supposed to be a subtle reformulation, and the changes may minimize fall out during application and wear and increase wear time. The colors and opacities are supposed to be the same.

If you plan to layer this over Pixie Epoxy and a primer, then I'd recommend checking it out if you're looking for a mint green hue.

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.

    Oh my word! I am wearing a mint eyeshadow from Fyrinnae today! It is called anemone. A bit more matte than this sparkly one, but just as gorgeous :)

    I’ve heard good things about Fyrinnae’s pigmentation and dimension and the prices are reasonable. The colors are beautiful but I’m more of a neutral/natural person. Maybe I’ll have to check out some of their brown shades some time.

  7. I <3 the Arcane Magic Eyeshadows in there line. There just so fun.

    Are You My Mummy…. ah, so cool to hear that as a product name because of the Doctor Who reference. lol

    I love this color, I own it in a full size, and I love how intense it is when layered on top of a sticky base.

    You just have to be very careful for fall out, and use a flat, stiff brush.

    I echo the last comment- LOVE that you’re reviewing Fyrinnae. It’s one of the most exciting and creative lines out there. Plus, you can get sample sizes to try out new colors. Good job Christine.

    Ahh! That is a gorgeous look for that shadow, I hope you’ll review more of them because I’m usually at a loss for how to wear the colors I get from Fyrinnae. I buy them like little jewels to look at but I’m usually only bold enough to wear them as a thin liner on hot days! Mephisto is incredible for that!

  11. Michelle

    Same here. I’m also extremely excited and happy that you’re reviewing Fyrinnae. It’s my favorite eyeshadow brand, hands down!

    Yay! I love Fyrinnae! Thanks for doing reviews Christine.

    I love Fyrinnae as well. The colors are gorgeous and not only are the prices good but the amount they give you is very generous. I can’t imagine finishing on of these. Even the free sample they stick in is generous!!! And the pixie epoxi is a must for me. Thanks for the review, you look gorgeous!

    This is so pretty!
    Did you post another light green color from Fryinnae recently? I think I’ve seen something like this before.
    Anyways, I really want this color now! It’s gorgeous! I love non neutral colors that are light in tone.

  15. Wow, this is beautiful!

    GORGEOUS! Can´t believe it´s so cheap. Sadly we don´t have that brand here so I will have to look at the more expensive Guerlain dupe lol.
