Endings and New Beginnings

EDIT: Ana has had confirmation that Fyrinnae is not closed for good. Yay! I was scared!

Endings
I haven’t gotten email confirmation yet, but I strongly suspect that Fyrinnae has closed for good.  This makes me so sad. I will miss their gorgeous shadows, lip lustres, and pixie epoxy.

New Beginnings
Dreamworld Minerals will be opening again soon. I’ve been waiting for Ellie to get back in the mineral makeup business, as she’s got some lovely treats in store for every one.

      I really hope Fyrinnae isn’t closed for good, but for those who need their Pixie Epoxy fix, I’ve heard that Darling Girl’s Glitter Glue is a good substitute.

        Thank goodness they’re not!

      god damn!!!! i hope not!!!

      • Phyrra

        They’re not!

    • leah

      I was just thinking that I was low on pixie epoxy and went to order some more and saw this. So sad that all of these wonderful MMU companies are shutting their doors. Would you recommend another primer besides pixie epoxy?

      I have been checking in on Dreamworld’s site every couple months or so and each time there is an opening date but that date always comes to pass. I hope she can open back up soon.

      • Phyrra

        Dreamworld is still working on getting ready for their big opening!

    • lunableu

      That bites, there were more colors that I was meaning to get, boooo!
      Looking forward to seeing what Dreamworld will be bringing though.

      • Phyrra

        You still can :)

      :( I never took the chance to order from Fyrinnae (I only lost my indie virginity a few months ago). I’m pretty sad. I really hope there will be leftover stock or blog sales we can take advantage of. I wish the owner the best.

      I’ll have to check out Dreamworld Minerals.

      • Phyrra

        You should take the chance now :)

      Ah crap, where am I gunna be able to get my absolute favorite eyeshadow if they close? D: I really can’t find anything quite like Velociraptor… huu ._.

      • Phyrra

        You can still get it :)

      this is intensely depressing. I’m hoping that whatever is going on with them right now will pass and sooner or later, they’ll be able to open their business again. Fyrinnae was my first, and to be quite honest, takes up 90% of my collection of makeup. They’re what I use almost all the time, and I am going to be dreadfully sad if they go. I’ve never found another company that makes eyeshadows quite as amazing as them :(

      • Phyrra

        Thank goodness I was wrong!

    • Sara

      What?! Fyrinnae closing?! Noooo!!! I just placed an order last month and was patiently going through my samples to see what else to get. And I only just now hopped on the pixy epoxy bandwagon. Goddamnit! They can’t close!

      • Phyrra

        I was wrong! They’re not!

      I don’t think they are closed permanently.

      They were open for orders briefly today and a couple of us snuck some in, then the store came back down and the message said “Fyrinnae is close from 8/16 to 8/29. Please do not make orders during this time.” Several hours later it was changed again to remove the re-opening date, but I suspect that’s more a response to people getting extra orders in (i.e. slowing things down) than a sudden decision never to re-open.

      I can’t imagine why he’d write a re-open date, even for a while, if he was planning on closing for good.

      Aside from that, I just hope he’s OK. It’s made me really angry seeing people complain about what a rude “lack of thanks to their loyal customers” this is. Fyrinnae deserve the benefit of the doubt. They have earned it. Let’s try not to be selfish and realise that another person’s well-being is more important than being able to buy sparkly things.

      • Seii

        There was a message until the 8/24 yesterday iirc. I REALLY hope that it is the way you see it, and maybe Mr F has decided to take a vacation. I held off ordering when the site went up thinking it was backlog and not wanting to add to the queue.

        I can undestand wishing the message was clearer tho.

      • http://megsmakeup.com/aff/7745/6 Wendy

        I hope you’re right! I’m dying to try Fluff

      • Phyrra

        Fyrinnae is quite awesome and I am SO RELIEVED that they’re not out of business :)

    • http://portraitofmai.blogspot.com Mai

      Sigh the first message on the site said they were closed 8/16-8/24 but now it says is closed as of 8/16. I really hope it isn’t true.

      • Phyrra

        Thank goodness it was only temporary.

    • Lindsay

      New message (looks like he’s a blog reader of yours…)

      Fyrinnae is closed as of 8/16. Please do not make purchases.
      (we love the interesting rumors going around, and our love for you bloggers just increased, if possible)

      • Phyrra

        I adore him and am super flattered that he reads <3 <3 <3

    • Wednesday

      I hope they’re not closed D: I never got to try Pixie Epoxy D:

      • Phyrra

        You can try it now :)

    • http://ciambelladiamore.blogspot.com Ciambella

      I hope the current message means they’ll be back with something even bigger and better (I don’t know how that’s possible, but IT MUST BE)! I definitely wanted to get more PE and Te Amo…fingers crossed!

      • Phyrra

        I can’t wait for their halloween collection!

    • Selenite

      I hope not. They’ve had a huge following for years and have many coveted staples in their catalog…….but so did Aromaleigh. Crud.

      • Phyrra

        Thank goodness they’re back

    • http://www.lipsticksandlightsabers.com Anastasia

      They are definitely coming back. Within a matter of days. I had it confirmed.

      • Phyrra

        Thank Goodness!

    • http://sakuradesu.com Sakura

      Oh:( this is really bad news:( I really hope whatever the thing is, gets solved and we all can enjoy fyrinnae again and the owners enjoy creating more awesome stuff!!

      • Phyrra

        Go purchase :) they’re open, yay!

    • http://sugarbumpkin.blogspot.com/ Janny

      no!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i haven’t gotten a chance to buy from them yet!!!

      • Phyrra

        Thankfully they’re open for business!

    • http://sparklingluna.blogspot.com Olivia

      Oh so sad ! I’m happy i’ve picked up a backup of PE with my latest order . But i’ll miss them too , they had so many gorgeous colors :(
      I still hope they aren’t closed for good :D

      • Phyrra

        Thank goodness they’re open! I’d cry otherwise!

    • Mjolnir

      Oh I’m so glad it isn’t for good! I’ve been procrastinating on making my first order with them for so long because I feel bad for adding to the workload. I really wish the owner the best of luck and health.

      • Phyrra

        He’s such a fantastic person :)

    • Violet

      I’m glad they’re not closed for good, I love their eyeshadows and I’d like to try their Pixie Epoxy. BTW, Am I the only one who can’t visualize their site anymore? No shop, no messages, just a white empty page.

      • Phyrra

        It’s up now!

    • http://www.nightlynails.com/ Nicole

      WHEW thank goodness for this news, this just made my day!! Obviously I’ve been a huge fan of theirs for…more years than I’d care to count, so I’m tickled. I have never minded that they close to catch up – at ALL. Nor have I ever cared about the TAT, I just love their products.

      • Phyrra

        Yay! Glad you’re a fan, too.

    • http://libervix.blogspot.com/ Liber Vix

      Ah, now with a re-opening on the horizon the world can heave a collective sigh of relief!

      • Phyrra

        YAY!

      Every time i checked the website first the lip lustres were gone, then the website went…then came back, then went and seems its gone for good…Shame as pixie epoxy was excellent. But business practice of that company not so good. I understand indie companies often need to take breaks to make stock or for personal holidays..but the website never once mentioned when or if they were coming back, so it was often a case of checking every day. I stopped using Fyrinnae in my blog looks, because i couldn’t link to them..what’s the point if their site was always down.
      Been meaning to try Two Faced glitter glue for a while now though, so looks like i’ll be
      going to that.
      Not heard of Dream Minerals so will check them out when they reopen.

      Heard recently that High Voltage Cosmetics has gone, read some interesting stuff regarding that company and bad business practice. Kind of glad i only ever did one order with them.

      • Phyrra

        I hope that Dreamworld opens soon!

    • Monica

      Has anyone tried the stick em eyeshadow enhancer by silk naturals? I wonder if it’s comparable…

      • Phyrra

        I can’t remember if I’ve tried it yet or not.
