Fyrinnae Sleepy Hollow Eyeshadow (Pressed & Loose) Review, Photos, Swatches

Fyrinnae Sleepy Hollow Eyeshadow (Loose)
Fyrinnae Sleepy Hollow Eyeshadow (Loose)

Fyrinnae Sleepy Hollow Eyeshadow (Loose) ($6.25 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “lush deep ocean blue with a flash of sage green.” It’s a bluish-teal with a flash of green-gold shimmer and sparkle. It has a frosted, slightly metallic, sheen. The color payoff applied damp or over Fyrinnae’s Pixie Epoxy was fully opaque. Disney Caspian Sea is lighter. Tom Ford Emerald Lust #3 is cooler-toned. theBalm Open to Offers Olwen is similar. MAC Parrot is brighter. Inglot #413 is more muted, lighter. See comparison swatches.

Fyrinnae Sleepy Hollow Pressed Eyeshadow ($8.25 for 0.07 oz.) is a pressed version of the loose version mentioned above. I highly recommend Fyrinnae’s Pressed Eyeshadows if you’ve always been curious about the brand but are not keen on loose eyeshadows. The loose eyeshadow version is slightly more complex, but it’s only slightly noticeable when swatched and seen side-by-side in person and really not apparent on the lid. The biggest difference is the loose version sparkles more–it just seems to catch and reflect the light a bit better, so it also appears a smidgen lighter and the “flash of sage green” is more noticeable at times. The texture is slightly silkier with the loose version.

The pressed version wore better without a base than the loose one, as it had less fall out, though neither of them were faded or creased after eight hours of wear. Applied over Pixie Epoxy, there was no distinguishable difference in wear; no fall out, creasing, or fading. Note, Pixie Epoxy is designed the work primarily as an adhesive base, so it is not a substitute for a primer. If you have oilier lids, you may want to layer a primer underneath. (I just haven’t found I need a primer underneath to get long-wear out of them, but I have normal-to-dry lids!) Fyrinnae does not claim long-wear with this and recommends a primer and Pixie Epoxy when wearing their eyeshadows for long-lasting wear and minimal fall out.

I’m so happy to see this. I love seeing the differences(or lack thereof) between 2 versions of a shadow. I have the loose of this and I was stunned by how sparkly it was in the jar. This is a color i reach for almost every day. I would love to see you keep reviewing more fyrinnae shades. Do you have any other shades lined up to review/swatch?

This is a beautiful color! Your good reviews of the Fyrinnae brand made me order a few colors yesterday (including Superstar and Alchemist’s Curse) and I’m so excited to get them!

I’m so happy you are doing Fyrinnae reviews! If I had the funds I would buy EVERY SINGLE EYESHADOW they have. They are probably my number one. Thanks Christine!

Well, at least the minis are only $2-something, so maybe one day 🙂 I mean, it’s not quite the level of “I’d like to own every MAC eyeshadow,” LOL! 😉

My next makeup purchase is definitely going to be some Fyrinnae shadows because of the awesome swatches/reviews you’ve been putting up. I hadn’t heard of them before you started posting their products!

Both are gorgeous, though the sage green is more prominent in the loose version. Is the green in your look another Fyrinnae? I’m pretty sure you reviewed it already but don’t recall the name!

Here’s the full list 🙂 Fyrinnae Jade Ghost, Fyrinnae Bitey Tyrranosaur, Fyrinnae Sleepy Hollow, Burberry Trench Eyeshadow, Urban Decay Deep End Eyeliner

Ah! Thank you so much for doing a pressed/loose comparison, Christine — the differences are pretty much what I expected (minimal with slightly more complexity to the loose version), but it’s great to have them solidly confirmed 🙂

I think you broke Fyrinnea’s web site lol…I just went on to check to see if this is one of the colors I ordered and they are down until 7/14:) The color is gorgeous! reminds me of Haight and Peace from UD.

Whoa. That is nice. What are the other colors you’re wearing in your look? I might just have to take a look at Fyrinnae’s website when they’re back up. Christine I think your review made everyone go to their site again!

Fyrinnae Jade Ghost, Fyrinnae Bitey Tyrranosaur, Fyrinnae Sleepy Hollow, Burberry Trench Eyeshadow, Urban Decay Deep End Eyeliner!

Is there a secret to ordering from the website? Every time I add something to my cart then go to add something else, my cart appears empty. Tried doing this multiple times all day on different PC’s and it still won’t work. What am I doing wrong? 🙁

Hey Stacy!

I think that happens when they make it so you can’t buy but you can browse – I see now they’ve taken the site offline until the 16th, though!

I love the makeup look you did with these. I want to re-create it, but I get worried about over-doing darker colors in my crease, and I feel like I can never keep them in check. Are there any suggestions you can give to, you know, not do that? (For example, how much pressure you use, what type of brush, etc.)

Hi Sarah!

I usually use a tapered crease brush – like MAC’s 222 or equivalent (I use MUFE’s 17S a lot) can be helpful for giving a very diffused look. You can also apply using a very pointed crease brush (NARS has a good one) that’s smaller overall and will help you concentrate the color in a smaller line, then you can blend out.

Hey Christine,

I was wondering if you were going to put up more Fyrinnae reviews and if so, around when should we be expecting them? I want to make a purchase but would much rather wait and see your pictures and reviews of the shadows!

Thanks 🙂

Hi Shayna,

I have more I intend to review, but I really don’t give out times or make commitments, because things change all the time, so I don’t like to make promises I can’t keep.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
