Fyrinnae Hitched Eyeshadow
Fyrinnae Hitched Eyeshadow

Fyrinnae Hitched Eyeshadow ($8.25 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “bright, metallic satiny warm red.” It’s a vibrant, medium-dark orange-toned red with a subtle, satiny sheen. I applied it dry and then applied over Fyrinnae’s Pixie Epoxy for comparison. I found it entirely unnecessary to use it over Pixie Epoxy, though, as it looks very much the same either way (but certainly no harm using the base with this). It’s incredibly rich in color with a single pass yielding full, opaque color coverage, but despite this richness, it’s still easy to blend and apply. It doesn’t stick unduly, so I had no trouble blending and softening the edges to meet with other products. This shade did stain when worn without a base, and then mildly over Pixie Epoxy, but I didn’t have any signs of creasing or fading after nearly nine hours of wear (no primer). Illamasqua Daemon is more matte. Sugarpill Love+ is brighter, matte. Make Up For Ever #99 is cooler-toned, matte. Inglot #366 is lighter, matte. See comparison swatches.

Unicorn Eyeshadow ($8.25 for 0.07 oz.) is described as an “iridescent lavender filled with multi-color sparkle.” It’s an icy, cool-toned lavender with an iridescent sheen. I applied it alone (dry), and it had good color payoff, and then applied over Pixie Epoxy, the sheen came out slightly more but the pigmentation was buildable to full opacity. ¬†This shade wore well for over eight hours–no creasing or fading–without a base as well as just applied over Pixie Epoxy.¬†Urban Decay Aura #2 is lighter. MAC Amethyst is more sparkly. MAC Ready to the Party is more metallic. OCC Datura is slightly purpler. See comparison swatches.

If you like your reds warm-toned, this is one of the easiest red eyeshadows to use that I've come across--not only is it still insanely pigmented, but it's very blendable.

This shade had more buildable color payoff, so it was definitely possible to get mostly opaque payoff, but it has the kind of soft texture that makes it very easy to sheer out (so it pat it on for maximum payoff, if that's what you desire).

    Must have! Gorgeous….. It will replace love + for me just for the beautiful finish!

  5. WOW both of these are gorgeous! I thought Unicorn was going to be a bit plain, but that swatch is amazing.

  6. Oh these look delightful and totally affordable! If you can, Christine, could you review more of Fyrinnae’s products please?

  7. Angela

    Wow my jaw just dropped. Must have that red eyeshadow NAO.

    Wow these are fab. So pleased to see Fyrinnae here especially after our last discussion Christine! Thanks and I will try to purchase when their site is back up again as I think it went down shortly after the launch of these new ones! Their eyeshadows are so addictive, loose or pressed.

  11. OMG Unicorn is gorgeous and so unassuming on the pan! Also Hitched is beyond bold – love it! Will have to check out Fyrinnae.

  12. Barbara

    WOW! Only you could pull off those two colors together, Christine. I couldn’t figure out what this would look like, but all I can say is WOW!!! Just stunning!

  13. Gah. I’m a total sucker for anything with a violet duochrome sheen — Unicorn is right up my alley. (My sister’s, too; I might have to pick this up for her next birthday or something! :))

    Did you ever hear back from Fyrinnae about the reformulations, Christine?

    • Hey Rae!

      I asked about a month or two ago, but I didn’t hear back regarding reformulations, unfortunately!

      • Aww, sorry to hear that! Thanks for letting me know, Christine — I do love Fyrinnae’s products and shades (who doesn’t?), but I wish they had more responsive customer service. :(

        • Hey Rae!

          I just talked to Fyrinnae on Sunday night after connecting via Twitter. It sounds like there really shouldn’t be a major or noticeable difference in performance, mostly in how some shades look in the jar, but colors should be the same. Fyrinnae said that all should go “the slightest bit better” but not enough that you would really notice unless you owned the original and the reformulated version.

          • Thanks for the update, lovely — & hurray for Twitter :D

            I’ll definitely keep that in mind when I’m looking at swatches and reviews… and maybe haul some Fyrinnae in the meantime. :P

  15. Oh wow, the COLOR! What an amazing red, I love it.

  16. I’m an absolute sucker for red eyeshadows!

    How does Hitched compare with Asylum by Sugarpill?

  17. Jeanie

    Love these shades!

    I’ve intermittently been trying to look at and make orders from Fyrinnae, but every time I visit the site, all I see is a black screen. Every time. For the last year :(

  18. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Alicia Alicia

    Too funky of a shade for me, but I love the look you created with it! Gorgeous. Great pigmentation too.

    Hi Christine, you didn’t mention where can we purchase those eye shadows? never heard of them before….Thanks

    • Hi Virginie!

      Next to each product’s rating, there is a green button that says ‘WHERE TO BUY’ that you can click, and it will tell you where you can buy it.

  22. Those colors are fun! I’d do a geisha inspired look with them :)

  23. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Em Em

    I am so in love with Fyrinnae! I’m glad you’re doing reviews of their products. I love seeing indie makeup companies get the recognition they deserve! Also, this red is stunning.

  24. I’m always apprehensive about using red eyeshadow but now I got an idea on how to use it! Thanks.

  25. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Malia Malia

    I ordered and received based on your review and also Pyrrha (below) and mine is not red at all. It’s orange. :(. Now to hear the customer service sucks is jut more bad news :(

    • Do you have really yellow undertones? It is a warm-toned red (so it has strong orange undertones), but it was still more red than orange on me. Have you tried wearing it with say, cool-toned shades?

  26. I just want to say THANK YOU Christine!
    I ordered among other things Unicorn & received it yesterday & wore it today…..IM IN LOVE!!!! I never heard about Fyrinnae before your reviews but I know I will be back to buy more!!!!
