Fyrinnae Idolize is a very cool-toned, dark duochrome with a metallic finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $14.50 and contains 0.07 oz.
Fyrinnae Idolize Exquisites Pressed Eyeshadow ($14.50 for 0.07 oz.) has a dominant coloring of medium-dark, slightly cooler purple that can lean warmer and cooler depending on the light. It shifted from more violet purple to warmer purple to true plum to copper to warmer green.
It was incredibly challenging to actually see the green shift in person, especially on my lid; I could only detect it when looking down and holding a mirror much higher over my eye. I asked my husband to look for it (as it's easier for someone looking at your eyelids to detect it), and he insisted there was absolutely no green anything happening. I definitely saw a good range of shift from cooler, blackened purple to brighter, shimmery violet to warmer plum (with a hint of brown/bronze). I did not think that it shifted any more noticeable when applied over a black base (I used an eyeliner).
The texture was smooth, dense without being too thick, and one of the easier shades to work with in the pressed Exquisites range. The eyeshadow applied well with a dry brush, wet brush, or fingertips, and it did not need a primer or tacky base to work well (some of the shades in this formula are explicitly recommended to be applied over a tacky base). It had rich pigmentation that adhered evenly to my lid without fallout during application. The color stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before creasing very faintly.

Exquisites are a variation of our popular Arcane Magic eye shadows, but most have stronger color changes and lack an opaque contrasting base color like most of the original line. They appear to change color depending on proximity to light and sharp angle.
