Fyrinnae Meerkat Pressed Eyeshadow
Fyrinnae Meerkat Pressed Eyeshadow

Fyrinnae Meerkat Pressed Eyeshadow ($9.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “vibrant pink-purple with gold shimmer and sparkle highlight.” It’s a plummy purple with gold shimmer and sparkle. It had good color payoff applied dry as well as over Pixie Epoxy. The texture was fairly soft, though it had quite a bit of sparkle, so it wasn’t perfectly smooth. MAC Double Feature #1 #2 is darker, more plum. Buxom Schnauzer is similar, slightly more muted. OCC Overlook is darker. Inglot #445 is similar but less gold shimmer. See comparison swatches.

Meerkat Eyeshadow ($6.25 for 0.07 oz.) is the original (and loose) version of this shade. I did find there to be a noticeable and significant color difference between the pressed and loose versions. The loose version is purpler–less plum, less warm-toned. The loose version is nicely pigmented, though, and it also applied more smoothly than the pressed version. Dior Lilas Mitzah is purpler, cooler-toned. Sugarpill Hysteric is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.

Both shades wore well without creasing or fading over an eight-and-a-half-hour period without any primer; and I had similar wear when I used it with Pixie Epoxy (which isn’t a primer). I noticed slight fall out over time with both shades when worn without Pixie Epoxy, but there was just a couple of stray sparkles when applied over Pixie Epoxy.  Neither pressed or loose is listed as long-wearing and are recommended to be worn with primer and Pixie Epoxy to maximize wear.

    I feel like I say this every time but I LOOVE when you review Fyrinnae eyeshadows! My birthday is coming up so this is just perfect!!

  4. Sandy

    Christine, I love that you seem to be featuring more drugstore-priced products! Keep them coming, please!

  5. I adore burgundy eyeshadows – they are perfect for Fall. And I would buy these ones even just for their cute Meerkat name!

  6. Sandrine

    I have this and it’s so gorgeous.

  7. Malia

    So beautiful! I love inglot 445 and its available in my area in person, but this one is way prettier!

  8. Andrea

    I’m a bit saddened there always seems to be a big difference between their pressed and loose eyeshadows! This colour is gorgeous regardless, though.

  9. Laura Mercier African Violet is another similar shade.

  10. That is so pretty! I need to put some money aside to get a few of these eyeshadows — they’re all so beautiful and complex.

  11. I’ve been trying for days to enter their website, but nothing is working.. Does anyone know why?

  12. I think another dupe for this eyeshadow is Laura Mercier eyeshadow in African Violet.
