Fyrinnae Hitched & Unicorn Eyeshadows Reviews, Photos, Swatches

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. ย This shade wore well for over eight hours–no creasing or fading–without a base as well as just applied over Pixie Epoxy.ย 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.

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.

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!

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 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.

i love to see you review indie brands! ive been using fyrinnae since 2006 and im a huge fan of them in general but pixie epoxy is probably my favorite product of theirs. so good!

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 ๐Ÿ™

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.

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 ๐Ÿ™

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?

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!!!!
