FOTD (I FLIPPIN' HATE MY CAMERA! :@) + Few Photoshoots Photos

Look at how freaking faded the colours look :( I used Glamour Check! and it doesn't even look like it in the photos! Thank God I am getting a new camera soon! :D

  • Revlon Colourstay Foundation - Buff
  • Chanel Pressed Powder
  • NARS Blush - Orgasm
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Jest - all over the lid
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Wedge - blended crease colour

On a much more happier note, I've done a few photoshoots and these are some of my favourite photos :) I'm trying to look for some retail work but it is soooo hard right because there is nothing advertised for it :( I'm contemplating just working casually for the company my sister works for as a receptionist since I don't think the Clinique lady is going to call back (she told me she'd call back today and it is now 9pm... not likely I got the job). All the photoshoots were SOOOOO much fun though, I think I like doing photoshoots the best :) I just feel so proud when I see the girls up there modelling after I'm done with them :D

Swatches of Fyrinnae Samples!

So I purchased a few samples from Fyrinnae and I seriously love them! They are SO pigmented and for $2 they're great for value! They come in a little jar and contain 1/3 tsp of eyeshadow. I'll put in a little excerpt of what the company is about.

"Fyrinnae is not a "mineral" makeup company. We create unique cosmetics, all of which are vegan (this means no silk, carmine, pearl, beeswax, etc)..."

And the shipping is amazinggggg! It's FREE on orders over USD$20 and for smaller orders it costs #3.00 within US and $3.50 internationally!

I seriously HATE the fact that shipping is seriously ridiculous on some sites and I think that by making shipping so affordable they can extend their market internationally.

Eye Shadow Ingredients: Mica. May contain: Iron Oxides, Titanium Dioxide, Manganese Violet, Ultramarines, Chromium Oxide, Copper Powder, Bronze Powder, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate, FD&C Blue #1, FD&C Red #40, FD&C Yellow #5, Ferric Ferrocyanide, Silica, Styrene/PVP Copolymer, Myristyl Myristate. All ingredients are FDA-approved for eye-area use, and there is never any glitter used.

(From L-R: Monlalivel, Tamarin, Sumatran Tiger, Cookie Dough, Druid Werewolf, Choco-Cake Mix, Knickers In A Twist, Japan, Bali Mynah, We're All Mad Here, Treacle-Well)
Quality: 10/10
Pigmentation: 10/10
Blendability: 9/10 - Easy peasy on shimmery colours, a bit harder on matte, which is usually always the case anyway.
Packaging: 8/10 (only cause I hate little jars :P I'm a sucker for nice packaging)
Overall: 9/10 - Fyrinnae is seriously an amazing company and the guys are super sweet and funny. NO, they did not pay me to say this or review this, I purchased all these colours myself and fell in love all on my own! :)
