I just received my haul today - which surprised me. Most indie brands have a bit of a longer turn around time on their orders - which is listed on the brand's website - but my Fyrinnae order definitely did not take as long as anticipated! I was quite pleasantly surprised.
The thing about Fyrinnae is the consistency of the website - I did run into a couple problems in ordering. Once my order didn't go through and another time nothing would stay in my cart. I was, however, able to get in touch with the brand and they got back to me incredibly quickly and kindly, which made me willing to deal with the technical difficulties. I'm glad I did, in all honesty.
Fyrinnae does have a pretty large shade range; they just have a whole lot to offer. For sake of funds, I narrowed it down to 4 shadows and a Pixie Epoxy (which I've been wanting to try for the longest time!).
Everything was housed in a little green bag with the company's logo printed on it.
I'm a sucker for handwritten thank yous. One of the reasons I love brands like Fyrinnae and Darling Girl so much.
Everything was condensed in iridescent cellophane - the Pixie Epoxy also had foam around it to protect it as it was in a glass tube.
From left to right (and please disregard my weird looking wrist - I was wearing a studded bracelet all day!) these are Steampunk, Purgatory, Agenda, Wizards' Wedding Cake and Fire Opal (which was a gift with purchase). All of these were swatched dry with absolutely no base - which is pretty darn impressive if you ask me.
I also purchased some Pixie Epoxy to see what all the hype was - and well, you can see the above swatch...This is Wizards' Wedding Cake both dry (left) and over Pixie Epoxy (right). WOW...It also has a different texture from all of my other mixing mediums - a little bit thicker and stickier. I'm wondering how this stuff would fare with straight up cosmetic grade glitter. Long story short, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
