The photos are all pretty self-explanitory. Please see this post for swatches of the colours used dry! These are great for people with chronic pain, beginners, or people on the go. Lips and cheeks all in a small 3g jar — talk about easy :) They’re very high pigment compared to most products, so these leave nice stains throughout the day, without all the gross, greasy, ickiness that Vaseline usually causes.
Melty — hee, wasn’t it cute to begin with?? (While it was still… melty?)
[Gives a nice non-pigmented sheen to the lips. We didn’t intend it for the cheeks!]
Mesmerise (glow blush)
[Sheered out, it gives the most gorgeous berry glow. A little thicker on the lips and you get a pretty just-bitten stain!]
Enrapture (glow blush)
[Blends to a nice, clear, pop of pink. Also makes a very pretty gloss!]
Kabuki — I just *had* to post the blending photo. I don’t know why, but there’s just something about it…
[A brown-toned red for the lips… and the cheeks to contour, if used very sheerly! The finish on the lips is a bit frosty for my tastes, but my sister likes it, and that’s all that really matters.]
I’m getting my sister into makeup (bigtime!) — here are some photos of her Fyrinnae haul! We picked up a couple pigments to turn into multi-use balms with a touch of Vaseline, as pretty much everything “normal” irritates her skin. Photos of those tomorrow!
Koala was the sample colour, and it’s a gorgeous lavender-taupe that looks insanely different as a wash of colour on different skintones. I have zero complaints for the whole order… wrapped up carefully, all gorgeous, and all very pigmented! I <3>
The cute new domed sample jars!
The whole haul
(b) -> glow blush. The others are both eye/lip/cheek-safe eye pigments.
Swatches, both labelled and unlabelled, as you guys seem to prefer that! It’s not much harder for me, so I’m all too eager to comply.
Also: we turned Mesmerise, Melty, Enrapture and Kabuki into cream blushes/lip glosses. Check out photos and swatches here!
…because I posted eight times this weekend.
That is a lot.
You know that Senna Envelope we talked about a couple months back? Yah, it’s on sale for $50!!
Snatch it up if you have the cash, ladies. I recommended this at its normal $100 price tag, so this is definitely a fantastic deal!
For those of you that don’t remember: there are four different Envelopes that you can buy — Glamour, Pastels, Brights, and Neutrals — that contain 16 shadows, 6 blushers, and two pressed powder products each. Basically, it’s just over $2 a pan. The shadows are the same size as MAC, and there’s a little ledge-like thing so you can move them from palette to palette easily, but I would probably say that I prefer a lot of the Senna shadows over MAC! They’re stunning quality and crazily pigmented.
Anyhow. Just thought I would let you know. And if anyone would be interested in splitting a palette, please send me an email! I know this is a long shot, but I really don’t need more cheek shades or pressed powders. I do really want the Brights or Neutrals shadows, though!
