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! :)


  1. what great pigmentation! i love the 3 bright colours on the right :) so great for summer

  2. It's nice to read about vegan cosmetics !

  3. I have heard so much good things about Fyrinnae, gotta try their pigments and lip glosses for sure xoxo

  4. Hi Phoebe!

    The Revlon colourstay is probably my best drugstore foundation match, though it still leans toward "neutral" rather than yellow. If you compare it with the MUFE #117, they are really close!

    hehehe, now you're gonna be stuck with me forever because we have the same skin colouring XD

  5. Hi Phoebe :) How have you been?!
    The swatches look amazing. Really pigmented like you said....I love the three browns you got and what appears to be a dark olive green (Japan?) to the right of those browns.
    I know what you mean about shipping prices. It really makes me think twice about buying stuff online for the most part but the shipping price with Fyrinnae is really affordable!

  6. WOW! They look just fantastic. SO bright- I love the gold and pinks and bronze!!! What a bargain too- P.S. Your parcel is in the mail : ) x

  7. 2 bucks for samples is soo cheap and the swatches are soo pretty :)

    oh and im a sucker for nice packaging too lol.

  8. OMG! I have to try some of these...not like I need em or anything, but for $2 per sample, I am sold! Thanks for the info!!

  9. I was looking at their products online the other day and WOW do they have some nice colours! I especialy love their dualtones, (biker chic looks like it would make an amazing liner!)

    Anyways, i really like your blog, and have linked back to it on mine.
    Keep up the awesome work! :)

  10. Oh wow! The aqua + green is beautiful! That's so cheap too, even for samples. $2 O___O!

    Maybe you're after the NARS Penny Lane cream blush? I heard that's amazing!

  11. I've seen some reviews on this company and your swatches are gorgeous. I can't believe there is no glitter in it!

  12. LOVE the colors!! the pigmentation looks awesome :D and for the price! and the name of the company too, haha.
