Fyrinnae haul

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! I
t’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!

    my order arrived yesterday! i am in the process of testing the eye primer. i got one shadow, one blush, and one sample. (all beautiful, of course!)i am testing the primer with cream shadow today, and it's Crease City, but that could be b/c i applied additional shadow prior to mascara-ing (curling my lashes removed some). will do some swatch tests this afternoon, i think.

    lovely! kabuki is the kind of color I love, although it doesn't look good on me.btw, do you watermark your pictures? was wondering if it's difficult.

    Laura: aww, that's too bad =( I hope it fares better in the swatch tests later today, because I had really great hopes for it! I wonder if it works better with traditional powder shadows, rather than cream ones?

    kuri: Aww, that sucks =( And if you mean the watermark that only shows up when copied — no, I don't. Much too difficult for me!! Image watermarking is easy if you have any sort of photo-editing program, though. I just don't like how it looks, so I don't usually do it x.x

    ah, thanks! I kinda meant the visible watermarking, but the other kind sounds cooler. Thanks for the info!

    Meream: lol!! She won't sit still for all the photos =P Also, she's heavy on the logic and not exactly predisposed to the artistic… which leads to lots of "HEY RAE HOW DO I DOOOO THIS??!" at inappropriate times.(And she still calls mascara the "stick thingy," which is just super cute.)

    Catherine: I know!! I'm wondering if the samples are always from their endangered species line? Mine have seemed to be — not complaining, though! I think the line AND the products are greaet ^^

    Cris: haha, yes it's the hair. I wonder if real kabuki dancers would have used a similar shade? (Yes, clearly, but with the same undertones etc?)
