Tiny Fyrinnae haul and swatches!

It's been almost exactly 1 year now that I've been using Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy and I have to say, I absolutely LOVE it! So naturally, now that I needed another tube of it, I placed an order and decided to try a few of their shadows. I only ordered 3 samples (they were only $2 each) and they sent me a 4th for free! I like loose eyeshadows, I've been using MAC pigments for almost 7 years now. So.....yeah, I'm a fan of the loose ones :p

Get your mind out of the gutter!!!

But honestly, if you're a fan of the loose eyeshadows, these do not disappoint. They're highly pigmented and so beautiful! I had to show them to you guys. First of all, I ordered the full sized Pixie Epoxy and samples of Snow Leopard, Moon Child and Wake Not The Dead. The free sample they included in my order was Purgatory.

The following swatches were taken without flash, in different lighting and over Fyrinnae's own Pixie Epoxy.

Here's a short video of the actual eyeshadows in their jars and my attempt at showing you the swatches. I do apologize for the crap swatches here. It's because of the poor quality that I decided to film them outside.

And this is the video outside where the lighting is so much better and you can see the depth and beauty of these eyeshadows so much easier!

Moon Child is the light golden peachy ivory color. Snow Leopard is the taupe color. Wake Not the Dead is the purple color with the multi colored glitter and Purgatory is the blackened red. Aren't they beautiful? I'm already wanting to place a huge order for more eyeshadows! Also, Wake Not the Dead and Purgatory are new colors from their Halloween Collection this year but they are not limited edition. So if you can't place an order right now, don't worry. Their items are very well priced and shipping is pretty inexpensive as well, you can't help but be blown away by the quality!

Well, that's it from me for today. I hope you're all having a wonderful, fun and safe weekend!
