Beyond This World

Fyrinnae Beyond This World Exquisites Pressed Eyeshadow ($14.50 for 0.07 oz.) has a sheerer base with chunky, larger sparkles and shimmer to it that give it a warm, plummy color straight-on that shifts to copper to gold to slightly greenish-gold. In person, I felt like the most noticeable shift I caught (without contorting myself!) was a sparkling pink to a warmer gold along the edge.

The brand specifically stated that this particular shade “does not have an opaque base shade” and that a “sticky base is highly recommended” due to having “large particle sparkle.” The texture was drier, chunkier, and much, much harder to work with across the board–it had a lot of fallout, was difficult to lay down evenly, and it was a struggle to blend it without getting more fallout.

It’s definitely apt that it needs a tacky base, so I appreciate the brand’s transparency about it; I tried it with Pixie Epoxy (which is the brand’s tacky base), and it improves the application significantly, though it’s still a fussy shade to work with. I could actually see this being better in a loose version (which exists but I haven’t tried). It wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably, though there was a bit of fallout over time (even when tested over Pixie Epoxy).

Formula Overview

$14.50/0.07 oz. - $207.14 Per Ounce

Most of the shades had noticeable shift when swatched on my arm without having to strain myself to find the perfect angle and lighting source to see it. The latter was more the case with a few shades to get some of the more extreme shifts when the product was applied to my actual eye (lid space). The majority of shades have a creamier, denser, thicker consistency to them--they often felt packed with silicones (and dimethicone was typically the second ingredient, so it wasn't a surprise!) with some shades having a textured, uneven surface that was easily compacted into the pan. A few of those shades were harder to pick up later on and tended to work best with a wet brush or fingertips rather than dry brush.

Other shades were smoother, softer, and more forgiving--they felt more like typical powder eyeshadow. The shades with larger shimmer/sparkle had light to moderate fallout during application but had fairly good adhesion once on. The majority of shades were very pigmented on their own, but some definitely were best applied wet, with a fingertip, or applied over a tacky base (some shades explicitly say to use a tacky base with them). They wore between eight and nine hours on me with no to light fallout.

Chaotic Nebula

Fyrinnae Chaotic Nebula Exquisites Pressed Eyeshadow ($14.50 for 0.07 oz.) begins as a sparkling green with a slightly reddish-bronze base and shifts to a bluish-violet to a plum to a brighter, pinkish lavender. Most of the time, it looked like this complex (chaotic? eh?) mix of murky, olive bronze base with twinkles of green and red. It was a struggle to see much of the shift in person for me; I could get the subtle shift to deeper red-bronze and slightly purplish-bronze but I didn’t get much in the way of violet.

The texture of this was difficult to work with; it felt like it compressed more and more into the pan every time I used it, which just made it even harder to pick up the next time I wanted to try it. The brand noted that it “will require a sticky base” and that the loose version might actually be “easier to work with.” They also stated that it should be applied by “fingertip, a very firm brush, or stiff silicone applicator.” Brushes were pretty poor with this product, regardless of type of bristle, shape, or density, and I tried using brushes damp, which didn’t make things better. The very first use–as it looked applied to my arm–was when it was at its best, but the pan seemed to harden over time, which made subsequent use sheerer and stiffer.

Fingertip application was the only way to go in my experience, and I actually didn’t like it over Pixie Epoxy, as I felt like it was still rather uneven in application over it. I had the best luck over a regular eyeshadow primer and applying my fingertip, which helped the product apply more smoothly (while my fingertip kept most of the would-be fallout). It was so-so over bare skin, and I had mixed results as I ended up applying this shade half a dozen times just to see what might be the best way to use it. On its own, applied with a fingertip, the product lasted for eight hours with light fallout over time.

Once applied, the actual powder emphasized my lid texture, though I think in person, it had so much dimension and complexity, it ended up being more impressive than it actually sounds written. It’s a genuinely interesting shade and not something I’ve personally come across before; even though the multichromatic shift was weaker, it ended up having so many layers straight-on that it was still just as intriguing as the whole concept of multichromes (at least to me). I just loathed the texture and found it a pain to apply. It can’t be worn on its own as it blends out so poorly along the edge that it looked jagged, dry, and bumpy, so it had to be helped along with something else in the crease area to give the illusion of evenness.

Fyrinnae has some really spectacular pressed powder eyeshadows in the arsenal, so I know that they can nail the texture and give interesting, complex shades that are still user-friendly and go on great. I’m definitely curious to try out the loose version of this shade to see if it is easier to work with.

Chaotic Nebula looks far nicer and more interesting in the arm swatches that on the actual eyelids. I know that it’s a Fyrinnae fan favorite of many, but it would drive me positively MAD trying to find all those supposed color shifts, LOL! Nope, not even going to try.
And Beyond This World? … just isn’t.

It’s pretty cool in person in the sense of how layered/multi-faceted it appears with the red/green dynamic, though not quite as shifty so much as just complex!

I bought the pressed version of Chaotic Nebula after seeing the initial swatches, but hadn’t used it yet. I made a point to use it this morning, which I wore as eyeliner with pixie epoxy. This is how I usually use eyeshadows, including Fyrinnae products, which I’ve only bought in loose form up until this point.

It was harder for me to get the color to come through on this shade, which has never happened with any of my other stuff from this brand. Though that should have been apparent to me right away, as the denser shadow in the pan visually looks quite different than the other two pressed shadows I bought. I’m definitely going to try it in the loose form in a future order, though. It’s so cheap and easy to try minis of their loose shadows whereas their pressed shadows just come in the standard size as full-product price. Based on my experience with their loose shadows, I’d be shocked if this didn’t apply way easier.

Wow. I know this version of Chaotic Nebula is hard to work with, but that color is so lovely I’ll definitely be picking up the loose version. As I get older loose shadows don’t stick to my lids like they used to, but for something special I’m still willing to try.

I think the looser version of this looks like there’s more to it – it looks heavier in the jar from online photos I’ve seen – so I’m hoping it’ll be easier to work with but be less messy than the average loose eyeshadow!
