Fyrinnae Haul and Look of the Day: Dress to Kill

Fyrinnae Cosmetics

On Thursday the 25th I received my second order from Fyrinnae Cosmetics, unfortunately I have been feeling ill (tired, fatigued, just generally unwell) not the kind of "I have a cold or flu" but like something was really wrong. So unfortunately I had no strength to play around with my newest order that day...I figured I'd feel better the next day but I didn't. Anyway I went to the Doctors on Friday got a nice amount of blood drawn and still no idea what the deal is....I can feel my heartbeat in my head, arms, legs....it's really a horrible and weird feeling and it won't go away.

Anyway today I felt a tad better so I figured I'd try to do a look and gather some pictures, lucky for me the horrible feelings have returned this evening so I am making this short and simple. :(
I apologize it's not as detailed as I would like it to be. I will say I am again impressed with Fyrinnae and the care they put into their products and packaging. The colors are vibrant and gorgeous.

Glamour Doll Eyes Look of the Day Twilight: New Moon



Today I went out to buy Twilight: New Moon....I know some people say they ruined vampires and made them stupid....I personally like the love story/two guys fighting over the girl....I am a gamer....I don't always like the pretty stuff....but I want to see the movie. :P If you think it's dumb then that is cool...you have your own taste which is why you are YOU and I am ME.

Anyway I decided to do a GDE look today since I got the set of Twi-Shadows that @veeglamour made. I was especially excited to try out Mind Reader which is a gorgeous matte navy blue (almost black) with silver sparkles in it. I will post swatches of the shadows in a later post (off to watch New Moon) but for now here is the Twilight look of the day.

Archetype Cosmetics Look of the Day

Archetype Cosmetics

I got a chance to finally throw on some Archetype Cosmetics shadows using my Fyrinnae Pixy Epoxy....it really makes the colors a ton brighter/more sparkly, it also keeps them looking great all day. Anyway ignore the fact I didn't line my eyes....I was in a hurry again.

Note: a colored base would made the shadows even more beautiful (at least on some) I swatched all the shadows over a black base a day ago and whoa! Gorgeous! I should also mention the pictures never do it justice! This is way more intense/sparkly in person.



Note: my hair looks gray due to me using colorfix to remove color before I re-dye/bleach the ends...I did not get this stressed out over spending so much money on makeup. ;)

Fyrinnae "I should be asleep but I heart Pixie Epoxy"

I got a little carried away.....did I mention Pixie Epoxy=sex in a tube? Did I say that out loud?? :O

Anyway here is the sneak peek picture for my first adventures with Fyrinnae Cosmetics, definitely ordering more of this stuff as well as the lip lustres....they make me want to swim in the stuff.....I don't think that's possible but if it were I would!

P.S. sorry I look so pale/terrible....I am a day out of having food poisoning or the flu....I still have no idea which it is.....

Fyrinnae Cosmetics - Review

Fyrinnae Cosmetics ("fyeer-ih-nay")

Initial first glance/swatching review; tutorial and thoughts to follow when I'm more awake.

I placed my order on February 18th 2010 pretty late at night, I received my order March 3rd 2010 with tracking info keeping me up to date as to where my package was. When I placed my order the frontpage said shipping was 18-22 bussiness days to arrive. (I think it was 18, it was for sure max 22 listed) So I received my order a lot earlier than expected! :)

I was very curious about the Pixie Epoxy I had heard so much about from other bloggers especially the fact that I could use my shadows on top and have them look as vibrant as if I had wet them. I was also curious about the lip lustres because I don't own a ton of lip products and these looked pretty. The scents sounded fantastic also!

Shipping Packaging: the packaging was fantastic on this, everything tightly packaged and neatly might I add.



Inside the envelope was an order form and the rest wrapped in cardboard...but there was more.


The order form had a (Thank you) written at the top.


Inside the cardboard was a black plastic bag, tightly wrapped to keep things safe.



Inside the plastic bag was this cute tiger print tissue paper; again very tightly packaged to keep my pretties safe.


Inside that they had wrapped up the Pixie Epoxy (10ml) and Lip Lustre (3.5ml) in a foam wrap *do you notice pattern of care they take with everything?*


On top of my Sea Otter sample I found a cute JP sticker; guessing it was Fyrinnae_2nd who packaged this one. At least from what he said before about the stickers. :) I also find it cute because I have 3 kitties who harrase me while I'm trying to write my blogs/do tutorials hehe.



I of course had to swatch things right away; swatched dry on top of Pixie Epoxy <3





I ordered sample sizes of the shadows and the samples were very generous enough for a lot of uses! If you look here full size vs. sample though you can see the difference in full size to sample size. I know I will be ordering full sizes because that is a TON of product.

Final thoughts:

Shipping Time: Very quick compared to what was listed! Very impressed since they had been swamped with orders during that time.

Packaging: Care taken in every aspect of this; everything was tightly wrapped and no mess to be found on anything.

Price: Very reasonable;
Shadow samples: $1.75 for 1/4 teaspoon
Shadow full size: $5.25 (weigh approximately 3 grams)
Pixie Epoxy: $7.50 for 10ml
Lip Lustres minis: $2.50 for 3.5ml (note the site states these are for samples and the quality is better in the full size)
Lip Lustres: $4.50 for 5.8ml (full size)

I plan to buy more items to try out including their primers/more lustres/shadows/blushes.

Uniqueness: the names of the shadows themselves makes my geekmeter go from red, yellow, to a solid green (yes I reference guitar hero). Names like Shinigami....(I love Death Note and L), Chaotic Evil (I play D&D although my character is currently trapped in a druid grove by a curse) Anemone (My fantasy dress is being made in a fabric named this). All in all I love the names and the colors are just as unique.

Extras: the sticker was a nice surprise since I'm a dork like that (I love Japanese stuff) plus I horde my extras like they were rations and I was stuck in a never ending dungeon. The Shinigami free sample was an awesome treat and beautiful color.

Shipping Time: 5/5
Packaging: 5/5
Price: 5/5
Uniquness: 5/5
+20 bonus for extras

Would you order again? DEFINITELY YES


Tutorial/pictures to follow tomorrow as well as further thoughts. :)
