Fyrinnae Fireside Interlude Eyeshadow
Fyrinnae Winter 2013 Eyeshadows

Fyrinnae Fireside Interlude Eyeshadow ($6.25 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “firey, warm blend of hues with a metallic finish.” It’s a deepened, molten orange with hints of brown with a coppery-gold metallic sheen. It’s like two colors layered with each other. When applied dry, it takes on more of that rusty orange coloring with a semi-matte to satin finish, but when applied damp or patted over Pixie Epoxy, you see that metallic sheen come through. It’s absolutely stunning, but I will say that this shade is not quite as easy to apply and get 100% amazing results every time–it can be a little more finnicky, though the extra effort might be worth it in this case! Sugarpill Asteria (LE, $12.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches.

Peppermint Vodka Eyeshadow ($6.25 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “shimmering burgundy enhanced with copper sparkle.” It’s a warm-toned, muted, reddish-copper–I see where Fyrinnae is saying burgundy but “enhanced” with copper sparkle; because it seems like a warm burgundy, but lighter and then I see the coppery undertone. It had a frosted finish and applied similarly whether used dry, damp, or over Pixie Epoxy (it was more intense with the latter two methods). Makeup Geek Burlesque (P, $5.99) is darker, less warm-toned. Chanel Seduction #1 (LE) is slightly more burgundy. Sleek MakeUP Sunset #7 (P, $9.99) is darker, more burgundy. LORAC Garnet (P) is more coppery. NARS California (P, $24.00) is also more coppery. MAC Spicy Smoke (LE, $32.50) is lighter. See comparison swatches.

Scarlet Macaw Eyeshadow ($6.25 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “bright shimmery warm red filled with multi-color sparkle.” It’s a warm-toned, coral-orange with pink sparkle. The texture on this one was a little dry and almost gritty in a way; I felt like as I pressed and blended the color into the skin, it smoothed out, but it didn’t feel quite like other shades I’ve tried by Fyrinnae. Applied dry, it’s more orange, and then applied damp or over Pixie Epoxy, it’s redder. It will have some fall out if worn without a base, but it wears without fall out when used with Pixie Epoxy. This isn’t part of the new winter collection, but it was a mini sample included with my order–and it paired so well with the warmer tones from the collection, I ended up using it, too! NARS Cambodia (LE, $24.00) is more coppery. MAC Pink Pepper (LE, $21.00) is lighter. MAC Caribbean (LE, $21.00) is similar. Disney by Sephora Arabian Sunset (LE) is very similar, less sparkly.L’Oreal Cherie Merie (LE, $7.99) is slightly lighter. MAC Dynamo (LE, $18.50) is lighter, cream product. Guerlain Terra Azzurra #3 (LE) is lighter. See comparison swatches.

Sled Puppies Eyeshadow ($6.25 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “gleaming, shimmery transparent white gold.” It’s a pale, golden ivory with a sparkling, shimmering finish. Applied dry, it has a softer, less over-the-top sparkling effect, as when it is applied damp or over Pixie Epoxy, it becomes more metallic. Clarins Forest #2 (LE) is similar. Tarina Tarantino Taurella (LE) is warmer. Too Faced Snowflakes (LE) is similar. theBalm C1 (LE, $16.00) is yellower. Disney by Sephora Charming (LE) is a bit yellower.Disney by Sephora Sea Shells (LE) is less sparkly. theBalm Envious Erin (P, $16.00) is similar but less sparkly (more metallic). Make Up For Ever #101 (P, $20.00) is a touch warmer. MAC Vanilla (P, $21.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.

Snowboarding Eyeshadow ($6.25 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “vibrant purple … [with] a fine shimmer finish].” It’s a cool-toned, violet purple with pinky tones and a iridescent, bluish-violet shimmer. Applied dry, it is a brighter, pinker purple with a barely-there satin finish. Applied damp or over Pixie Epoxy, it takes on a much more metallic finish–it really enabled the bluish-violet shimmer to come through. This shade, like Fireside Interlude, is for sure gorgeous but can require a little more patience to work with. Urban Decay Betrayal (LE, $18.00) is lighter. Fyrinnae Parental Advisory (DC, $8.25) is less pink, less transformative. Urban Decay Omen (P, $18.00) is more muted. Inglot #439 (P, $6.00) is brighter, less pink. Inglot #441 (P, $6.00) lacks the bluish-violet shimmer/sheen. See comparison swatches.

Generally, all of these shades lasted eight hours on me, and then when applied over Pixie Epoxy, a little longer than eight hours and were slower to show signs of fading. Shades like Scarlet Macaw and Sled Puppies had slight fall out when worn without Pixie Epoxy (which is designed to minimize sparkle fall out from the brand’s eyeshadows). The eyeshadows can be applied dry, damp, or over Pixie Epoxy–to get the maximum effect and impact from Fyrinnae’s eyeshadows, I highly recommend using them over Pixie Epoxy. If you need extra staying power, layer your favorite primer underneath Pixie Epoxy.  You can read reviews of Because Cats, Boot Season, and Frostbytes here.
