Fyrinnae Review

I was always a bit hesitant to order from Fyrinnae because of their really long TAT. I'm the kind of girl that hates to wait for orders of sparkley goodness, but I am sooo glad I finally did order from them! Their TAT isn't quite as scary as they make it out to be!

According to their website, their TAT was around 24-28 business days but I actually ended up receiving my order in 10 business days and the same has been true with the second order I placed (which I received today)! Packaging was quite nice with my order wrapped in tissue paper and then wrapped again with cardboard around the outside to protect the contents. I ordered 8 minis and 1 full size shadow and received 1 freebie. Now on to the part you're really waiting for...swatches!

L-R: Digital Faerie, Curiouser and Curiouser, Sleepy Hollow
One thing I discovered very quickly is that these colors are extremely difficult to capture in photographs. They are just so incredibly complex with all the different sparkle and color shifting. So for this particular post I tried to photograph the swatches at a couple different angles to try and capture the complexity. All are swatched over Hi-Fi Cosmetics Shadow Fix.

L-R: Digital Faerie, Curiouser and Curiouser, Sleepy Hollow

Digital Faerie (mini) - STUNNING bright aqua blue with an iridescent green and gold shimmer.

Curiouser and Curiouser (mini) -  Similar to Digital Faerie in color but with less of a green base. It has a gorgeous metallic blue shimmer.

Sleepy Hollow (mini) - Dark teal with a green and gold iridescent shimmer. In some instances the teal is so dark it almost looks black based. I bet this would be amazing over a black base!

L-R: Candy Coated, Rapunzel Wore Extensions, Sugar Skulls
Candy Coated (freebie) - Deep burgundy red with red shimmer. Not really a color I would wear but still beautiful.

Rapunzel Wore Extensions (full) - Gorgeous peachy pink with gold shimmer. This is the perfect color to swipe on your lids and go if you're feeling lazy but still want something on your eyes. I'm definitely glad I got this in full sizse

Sugar Skulls (mini) - Bright coral pink with gold shimmer. It looks similar to the Pantone color of 2011 Honeysuckle but even better because of the gold shimmer!

L-R: Candy Coated, Rapunzel Wore Extensions, Sugar Skulls
L-R: Darling Misfit, Meerkat, Shinigami, Eternal Innocence
Darling Misfit (mini) - Beautiful pink with a hint of purple shade with a gorgeous aqua shift. Too bad I couldn't get the aqua shift in pictures because it's stunning!

Meerkat (mini) -Gorgeous fuschia (leaning more towards purple) with a gold shimmer. I actually succeeded in capturing the gold shimmer around the edges of the swatches

Shinigami (mini) - Rich dark purple with holographic glitter. I LOVE this color!

Eternal Innocence (mini) - Medium green with a green metallic shimmer.

Overall I am in love with Fyrinnae's eye shadows and they definitely live up to all the hype! Also don't be afraid of their stated TAT because it honestly is not as bad as they make it out to be. I already placed and received a second order from Fyrinnae for 20 minis and I will definitely be sharing that with you as well!

Oh, I am soooo excited to see these--I love Sugar Skulls and I'd totally rock Candy Coated. Shouldn't drool too much though: I just got my first Fyrinnae order today! *happy dance* and you're right, their actual TAT was just over a week for me from order to my door ;) Cannot wait to get into these, they look incredible!
