Recent Mail – Fyrinnae, Sobe Botanicals, Cherry Cutulre, Silk Naturals

I have had a crappy week. Seriously crappy. So I was happy when I checked the mail and had lots of fun things.

The wonderful guys at Fyrinnae were kind enough to surprise me and send me some of their new collection. I’m in love with +2- Beautification, maybe it’s because in some of the old pencil and paper RPGS that I’ve played, I actually put points into Comeliness, as well as things like diplomacy :P I absolutely love everything they sent me to try.

Eye Shadows
+20 Beautification – brilliant turquoise as sparkling as possible
Robot Takeover – silvery deep teal with icy silver and blue sparkle and hints f pink
Geek Glam – gleaming glowing glam green leaning towards aqua
Delvian – beautiful purple with pink-purple shimmer (who wouldn’t love a color from Farscape!)
Chaotic Evil – bright neutral-cool pink filled with silver sparkle and glimmer
Warrior-Mage – super-duper sparkling silver with blue and pink sparkle
Half-Elf Hottie – a true gold with glimmering purple highlights
Damn Paladins – a soft light taupe with a gentle pale blue highlight
Griffonrider – metallic gold with turquoise sparkle and shimmer

Ghostly Voice (lip lustre) This is a GORGEOUS color that is like a silvery aqua to dark charcoal grey to my eyes. I’m sure it has more to it, since it’s a color changer, but that’s what I saw initially.

Next is my order from Sobe Botanicals. I was very excited by this because the nice owner, Lex. Grey from Gothique introduced me to Sobe and I’m very glad.

I purchased:
Vamptress – ready to suck your deep red blood in cherry  vanilla (lips)
Mademoiselle – medium purply fuschia mauve (cheeks and lips)
Dolly – hot pink (cheeks and lips)



Lex sent me a blush and some eye shadows to try as well.
Girls Just Wanna – a shimmery pink shade that is a blush or lip color, but not eye safe
Stiletto – a black with a shimmer of purple & very fine sparkling pink glitter
SugarPlum Fairy – royal purple plum with a hint of pink/red  shimmer
Oakmoss – mossy green with a hint of shimmery gold
Under the Mistletoe – medium dark green with shifting green shimmer

Next is my Cherry Culture Haul from their Thanksgiving Sale. This actually arrived a few days ago.

Nyx Lashes: 104, 125, and 129
Milani Whimsical
Nyx Eye & Lip Makeup Remover (2)

I stocked up on my Nyx and Eye & Lip Makeup remover, since I love this stuff.

Last is my Silk Naturals.

Silk Naturals:
Boom – MAC Shroom clone, warm oyster
Lurid – MAC Moth Brown clone, plum taupe velvet  matte
Idolize – MAC Idol Eyes clone, silvered violet  with gold
Tailfeather* (free shadow)
XXX- ultra nude
Crimson – MAC Russian Red clone
Gemini – medium cool red
Envy – golden green cream liner sample
Shirley Temple lip balm* (free lip balm)

I picked up Boom because I’ve heard so many people rave about MAC Shroom. I picked up Idolize because I used to own MAC Idol Eyes. The rest of the colors I just decided to try because they’re not colors I own.

Phaedra laid down and watched me open and swatch stuff. She prefers me to do this in the bedroom.

      Great hauls! Some of those new Fyrinnae shadows are calling my name. Hopefully I'll be able to try them soon.

      Hi Michelle,
      They are so gorgeous!

      Vamptress from Sobe is hot. That might be just the red I'm looking for.

      Hi Jessica,
      If you don't see it up, be sure to convo Lex of Sobe Botanicals, she's really sweet and I'm sure she'd be willing to whip up a color for you :)

      Phaedra looks bored. lol
      I love the Fyrinnae names! Gave me a much needed chuckle. :)

    • http://www.blogger.com/profile/02168093054712781267 Phyrra

      Hi Apriltini,
      Yeah she prefers when I do stuff in the bedroom so she can lay on the bed :)

      Glad you got a chuckle!

      Wow those are some beautiful colors! I love how the Fyrinnae photographed. Dolly and Mademoiselle are gorgeous!

      It's funny how dogs will sit and watch you do something they have no clue why you are doing it, but are still fascinated to watch. Tucker is like that when I am taking photos of my nails or some food I've made. That's a cute pic of Phaedra!

      Hi Lyndsey,
      Yay, I'm glad you like seeing them with and without flash, it really shows how the colors look :)

      I love that she'll hang out and watch :) You should take more photos of Tucker!

      Sweet haul! I love those NYX 104 lashes. I like to wear mine on my lower lashes. :-)

      I am so excited about the new Fyrinnae colors. Not only are the names excellent, but the colors are as well. Thank goodness Fyrinnae doesn't do limited edition collections, though, because I might have to hold off on getting these until after my birthday and Christmas! ;)

      I love Idolize from Silk Naturals. It looks so different depending on if you use it alone or over the Pixie Epoxy from Fyrinnae. I think that it's a universally flaterring color.

    • http://www.blogger.com/profile/02168093054712781267 Phyrra

      Hi Blix,
      Is it comfortable to wear lashes on your lower lash line?

      Hi Lindsey,
      Me too :) Their names are fun. And yes, as much as LE can be fun, it's hard on the bank!

      Hi Junerose,
      I had the MAC shade it was based off of, Idol Eyes, so I'm looking forward to trying it! I'll be sure to try it with Pixie Epoxy.

      What a huge haul,Phyrra! I especially like the Mademoiselle lippie.

      Question: The new colors from Fyrinnae, they're not up on the site yet,are they?

      BTW, I just placed my order for the Pixie Epoxy,two full-size eyeshadows,and about 13 samples. I like that their samples come in a jar already,that way I don't have to debag them into my own jars.

    • http://www.blogger.com/profile/02168093054712781267 Phyrra

      Hi Starlight,
      Yes those colors are up on the site, you just have to search by name, or by section.

      The Pixie Epoxy is wonderful!

      Glad you like the haul :)

      Hi Laura,
      I'm going to try and get a look done today with the new Fyrinnae colors.

    • http://www.blogger.com/profile/04511735205079140143 Sakara

      Ive tried the Fyrinnae lip lustres and found them to be very patchy and last about 5 seconds on the lips. Shame as the colour choice is amazing!

    • http://www.blogger.com/profile/02168093054712781267 Phyrra

      Hi Sakara,
      You might have received a bad batch. Try emailing Fyrinnae, because that's what Grey of Gothique did. She got a bad batch and they replaced it.
