New Fyrinnae April 2012

I ordered my new Fyrinnae on April 13. I received my shipping notice on April 16. I received my Fyrinnae today, on April 18. While they have a HUGE cushion window, their orders really do ship out and arrive faster than the stated timeframe. I’m very excited by these new colors! I also swatched some colors from one of their last releases that I hadn’t swatched yet.


Dragon’s Blood – Dragon’s Blood is a deep, rich, cool matte maroon-red, inspired by the vampy lipsticks of the 1920s. Can be applied as a lighter “berry stain” shade over balm.
Sweetest Poison – Sweetest Poison is a brilliant true red filled with microfine red glitter.
Acidic Cherry – deep sexy shimmery burgundy (discontinued, old formula)

Pteranodon – Deep, vibrant, shimmering turquoise, enhanced with a touch of silver sparkle

This is extremely accurate in my opinion. Quite pretty.

Bitey Tyrannosaur – Brilliant lime green. Vibrant green and gold shimmer top a lush green base. More green than our “Omgwtf” and less flat.

Yay! Love this!

Blogger Beauty – Bright, shimmering mauve-pink graced with a touch of blue sparkle.

The blue sparkle is very evident in this in person. It is pretty.

Picture It: Sicily – Bright complex coral with a slight golden (pun not intended) shimmer finish. Leans more orange than pink, but that varies depending on application.

This is definitely a gorgeous orange based coral. It actually reminds me of my new lipstick, Dancing Xenia. I do feel like I see a slight hint of pink when examined up close.

Cuddlefish – A vibrant violet, but not an overly cool shade, loaded with varying hues of purple and blue-violet sparkle.

Since I didn’t pick up Parental Advisory, I wanted to swatch Cuddlefish for your purple fix. I still can’t get over how amazingly gorgeous this color is. The sparkles are so evident in person, you see the twinkling purple, blue-violet, and violet sparks.

Lorem Ipsum – Deep shimmery blue, slightly subdued and lighter than navy, enhanced with lime green sparkle.

Callipygian – Vibrant Kelly/emerald green on black (appears navy in the jar). Great over regular primer, but over a sticky base it’s a gleaming jeweltone metallic green.


I used Callipygian on the outer 3/4 of the lid in my Sailor Moon Villains Prisma Look.

Shenanigans – Rich metallic gold over a dark base, filled with multi-color sparkle.


I used Shenanigans in the Dirty Sexy Golds look.


I also used it in this Shenanigans look with a melon shade.

*You’re – This shade is a bright shimmery warm red filled with multi-color sparkle, much like Immortality.

It makes me think of an orange-based red or a brick red. Definitely warm.

Matte Light Bronzer - for pale / light skintones

I’m going to have to try this as a contour. It looks like it might be a good color on my skintone.

Row 1 – Pteranodon – Bitey Tyrannosaur – Blogger Beauty – Picture It: Sicily – Cuddlefish
Row 2 – Lorem Ipsum – Callipygian – Shenanigans – *You’re – Matte Light Bronzer
Row 3 – Dragon’s Blood – Sweetest Poison – Acidic Cherry

Row 2 – Lorem Ipsum – Callipygian – Shenanigans – *You’re – Matte Light Bronzer
Row 3 – Dragon’s Blood – Sweetest Poison – Acidic Cherry

All shadows swatched on Meow Light Primer. Lip Lustres on bare skin. You can actually see how Acidic Cherry ends up feathering and bleeding, whereas Dragon’s Blood and Sweetest Poison don’t really move.

I am absolutely thrilled with these new colors. You already knew I was in love with Cuddlefish and Shenanigans. I am super excited by Pteranodon, Bitey Tyrannosaur, Blogger Beauty and Picture It: Sicily. Callipygian was PERFECT for my Prisma look. I really can’t wait to play with Lorem Ipsum sometime in the future. I’m going to have to figure out how to try *You’re.

I haven’t worn reds in a long time, which is kind of funny because I used to wear red lips all the time. Seeing Sweetest Poison again makes me want to wear it. I also like Dragon’s blood because it’s so deep and rich.

What do you think of the new colors from Fyrinnae? Which are your favorites? Which are must haves for you?

      Interesting about the shipping. I have purposely avoided purchasing from this company because of their stated shipping window.

      • Stephanie

        I can also vouch for Fyrinnae’s shipping. I’m in Canada, so they don’t ship to me as fast, but I still don’t think I’ve ever waited more than three to five days between my order and my ship time, and I usually receive my orders within about two weeks all together.

        Plus, honestly, it’s worth it. Their products are amazing.

        • Phyrra

          Yay I’m glad you like it too. I do always wonder how it is to receive packages in Canada and if you get frustrated.

          • Roxanne

            I’m also in Canada, and though I have never ordered from Fyrinnae (also because of the shipping time, and because I don’t really need anymore makeup), I have experienced very long shipping times. It’s usually because of customs, and once it gets to Toronto or Montreal, it takes 2-3 days to get to the prairies where I am. What’s frustrating is some companies (looking at you Hautelook) are based in California but ship it to Toronto instead of Vancouver. Because it totally makes sense to ship it to the other side of the continent and then back again.

      • Phyrra

        Honestly, I was worried the first time, but I figured why not give them a chance? And so I did. I have never regretted it. I think I own almost every color they’ve made. I love them. Their products are great. Their customer service is great. They stuff their jars full to the brim so you always feel like you’re getting your money’s worth.

      I have a few of the new colors, too, that I need to swatch and wear! I can’t wait to wear Sweetest Poison, though. I love red lips!

      • Phyrra

        Oooh I would love to see you do red lips with an exotic colored cat eye.

    • http://projectswatch.blogspot.com Emi at Project Swatch

      Shenanigans is AMAZING. I also really like Sicily and Cuddlefish.

      (and I’ve also had Fyrinnae ship to me super-fast)

      • Phyrra

        Yay! I’m glad you like the colors :)

    • http://fiercenerditude.blogspot.com Vijaya

      What are the textures of the Fyrinnae’s lip products like?

      • Phyrra

        It’s like a moisturizing liquid lipstick / lipstain. It’s not stick. I say liquid lipstick because it is thicker than your typical lipstain pen. It’s moisturizing and it sticks around. It works great on its own or as a base for a lipstick.

    • Stephanie

      Ahhh! I just ordered a whole bunch of new Fyrinnae: Pteranodon, Bitey Tyrannosaur, and Parental Advisory from the new releases, and I also ordered Dinosaur Plushie, Te Amo, Book of the Dead, Rapunzel Had Extensions, Sacred, Omgwtf, Cuddlefish, and Digital Faerie. I was obsessively checking my mail before you posted this and now I think I might have to just camp out by my mail box!

      Pteranodon and Bitey Tyrannosaur look like they’re going to be great for spring and summer. I don’t have a lot of really bright colours so I’m especially looking forward to those. For some reason I thought Bitey Tyrannosaur was going to be darker, but I still love it! Really though, all of the new colours you picked up look amazing. I might have to place yet another order and pick up Blogger Beauty and Picture It: Sicily.

      And Cuddlefish looks gorgeous. I don’t think I can ever have enough of Fyrinnae’s purples.

      • Phyrra

        These will be great brights for you to play with :)
        I really like Blogger Beauty and Picture It: Sicily!

    • http://witch-words.blogspot.com Jadelyn

      *grabby hands* OMG. Just…OMG. Picture It: Sicily and Sweetest Poison in particular. (Self, what are you doing? You have like five red lippies. You don’t need another one. But it’s so pretty!)

      As to Fyrinnae’s shipping time, it’s never been that long for me – at most, about a week between order and shipping confirmation, and it always gets to me in less than a week after that. Honestly, Morgana Cryptoria is the worst long-wait offender I’ve ever had (and I’m not saying it’s not worth it, it just kinda sucks having to wait like a month for an order especially when you’re excited for it!) – Fyrinnae is no time at all by comparison.

      • Phyrra

        You know though, Sweetest Poison is like Cult of Cherry for me. Such an amazing red.

      CUDDLEFISH!

      • Phyrra

        It is such a pretty purple, Amber!

    • http://beautysbadhabitblog.blogspot.com Lily

      Love Pteranodon and Bitey Tyrannosaur (best name ever). Must order Fyrinnae pretties soon!

      • Phyrra

        The name is totally adorable! Goes with Dinosaur Plushie.

      Hi!

      How are you? Your swatches and reviews are always so well done and clear and it helps so much!

      I was just about to write to you and ask you your opinions about Sugarpill and if you had the choice of one over the other, if you would choose Tiara or Lumi (or I should say could only purchase one or the other!). I look at these colors now and think oh goodness, what to do now!

      • Phyrra

        Hi Whitney!

        I love Sugarpill. If I could only purchase one, I would purchase Lumi :)

        • http://ohsparkle.blogspot.com Whitney

          Thank you so much!

          • Phyrra

            No problem! I just think Lumi is way more versatile ;)

    • http://cupcakesquirkycorner.blogspot.com/ Christie Brooks

      Fyrinnae has never disappointed me. I love the first row, though they are all gorgeous. I have always had quick shipping too, under 2 weeks from when I ordered.

      • Phyrra

        Thank you for sharing Christie! I like hearing about your experience with the products and shipping.

    • http://beautyaddict.net/ Vesna

      Gorgeous colors! <3 Haven't ordered anything from them in a while but I might now :)

      • Phyrra

        Definitely check out some of the new shades, Vesna!

    • Melody

      O_O Oh my goodness, I’m at a loss for words! Stunning! Callipygian is my fave.

    • http://hues-n-blues.blogspot.co.uk/ Liza

      I love that green look you did! And Shenanigans looks beautiful :)

      Picture It: Sicily is calling my name . . . “Lisa, Lisa . . . come to me . . . . :!

    • Umapuma

      I just got Shennanigans too, I was mesmerized by the swatch on my hand in the sunlight. Lorem Ipsum looks very pretty, I’m liking that. My faves so far are Velvet Vamprire, Sakura and Rapunzel Had Extensions. Oh! and Snow White for liner…..

    • http://www.makeupzombie.net MakeupZombie

      Best post of Spring! :D :D

    • http://cinseven13.blogspot.com cinseven13

      Sweetest Poison is my favorite of their lippies, I wear it all the time. I agree with everyone else, Fyrinnae’s always faster than the time listed, particularly if your order is small.

    • http://midnightviolets.blogspot.com/ Hannah @ Midnight Violets

      Shenanigans is beautiful! I do keep meaning to order from Fyrinnae again, such beautiful shadows!

    • Jenna

      This post made me so happy. LOL… I ordered the five new ones and six or seven others last week (I think I’m maybe 10 away from having the whole
      collection now!), so the sneak-peak was great… it’ll be early next week before mine show up here in Canada. You should do a look or two with these, Phyrra. :)

    • Jenn

      I am in love with Picture it: Sicily….not only for the name(hahaha, I <3 the Golden Girls) but it's gorgeous. Also love Shenanigans, what a beautiful golden color. I may have to make a purchase even though I shouldn't!

    • http://libbyspinkvanity.blogspot.com Kimberly

      Those are some of the most pigmented minerals I have seen! I don’t think I can pick a favorite, LOL. But Dragon’s Blood is right up my alley.

    • http://perilouslypale.com Perilously Pale

      Drooling! I really must get more of my Fyrinnae swatched. It’s just whenever I think of it it terrifies me! I think I have almost 90 shades now. And of course now I want to order more!

    • http://www.geniabeme.com Eugenia

      I NEED Picture It Sicily!! So pretty!

    • Shannon

      Yeah. I had to order Bitey Tyrannosaur and Shenanigans, and I will be wearing them together as soon as they get here. SQUEEEEEE! I also finally picked up Rapunzel Had Extensions, Dragon’s Blood because it was so damn pretty, and a few others sample sizes. (I didn’t want my Bitey T-Rex to be lonely.)

      I LOVE Fyrinnae! I don’t have a ton of colors from them (maybe 20 total?) but I increasingly reach for them when I need to do bright and interesting looks for drag show performances etc. Love love love!

      I need Shenanigans and Dragon’s Blood.

    • Sandra TK

      Well I’ve officially wet myself looking at Acidic Cherry, Callipygian & Shenanigans! I’m absolutely blown away by them, as well as the looks you did with them. The Callipygian look is incredibly, stunningly, fantastically amazing!

      I also really love Fyrinnae’s bronzers. I bought some samples of them in both light & medium, as well as in the matte & shimmer finishes. I love them all! None have an ugly orange undertone, and yes, they work great for contouring. I also love the fact that none of their shimmer bronzers or highlighters magnify pores. They have the most incredible natural sheen to them. A true glow. I haven’t come across any bronzers or highlighters better than theirs. It always amazes me that it’s guys coming out with these products because they really seem to understand what does & doesn’t look great on women’s skin.

      Off to change my pants & then straight to Fyrinnae’s website to pick up those 3 eyeshadows, as well as some more of their bronzers. I’ll truly cry if they ever stop making them! Gotta stock up before things change :-)
