I’ve got the new Fyrinnae Samhain 2012 colors for you, plus a few extra! I also picked up the pressed versions of Immortality and Jade Ghost. The Samhain 2012 collection is made up of one lip lustre called Ghost’s Kiss, and 8 eyeshadows. The eyeshadows are Mystical Hedgehog, Mermaid Masquerade, Witchy Woodland Creatures, Velveteen Werewolf, Sultry Samhain, Bonfire Spirits, Ethereal Éire and Mischevious Sidhe.
All colors are swatched on bare skin.
Appears as a vibrant, shimmering purple with a turquoise-green highlight at a distance, but changes to a warmer purple to pink at an angle or close to light.
Perfectly deep purple with with gorgeous turquoise glimmers. I love this color so much!
Bright, rich, shimmering royal blue. Moved closer to light or at an angle, and it turns purple to pink, though still retaining hints of blue.
Rich royal blue with blue shimmer, almost like the sun reflecting on the water.
Smoldering warm red and a touch of chartreuse mingle in a deep base. Almost an Arcane, as the green appears blue at angle or with light changes, but not by much. Somewhat of a “vampy” earthtone.
Deep burgundy brown with complex shimmers of green, red, orange and gold.
Stunning metallic bright burgundy, gleaming and sparkling with a bit of lighter pink. Closer to light or at an angle, and it warms to pink to an orange-gold hue. Similar to Velvet Vampire, but much cooler.
Metallic burgundy with shimmer with pink sparkles. There are golden hues around the edges.
These shades have an almost wet, diamond like lustre finish. The pink shows up fairly easily in Sultry Samhain.
Brilliant, glittering, shining, semi-metallic gold. Yellow and rich like real 24 karat, with no beige or bronze hues. Appears to be a mustard shade in the jar, but is metallic and sparkling once applied.
Yellow-toned sparkling gold. I love the name!
Varying hues of gold, blue, and green create a shade that appears silvery sage, but light reflects different hues. A versatile shadow, but not boring. Graced with a sprinkle of pale green sparkle.
Soft, pale green with a hint of gold iridescence and blue sparkles.
Another swatch of Ethereal Éire, which is really lovely.
Witchy Woodland Creatures
Glimmering, multi-faceted cocoa taupe. Shades of copper and silver, with hints of pink, gold, and green shimmer on a neutral taupe-brown base make this shadow suitable for a wide range of skintones.
Light brown taupe with a soft copper sheen. You can see sparkles of green and pink and gold shimmer.
Complex whirl of lime green and gold on a shimmering brown base, graced with a touch of lavender sparkle. Moved close to light or at an angle, and the shadow warms to hues of peach and pink on rusty brown.
Shimmery brown with strong gold and green sparkles.
Ghost’s Kiss Lip Lustre
Slightly shimmery “nude” with hues of copper and pink. Semi-transparent. Neither overly warm or cool, so it’s suitable for a wide range of skintones. Samhain 2012
Nude copper soft pink hues.
Here’s a lip swatch of Ghost’s Kiss.
Jade Ghost Pressed Shadow
Slightly shimmery pale white-green. Appears pastel in the pan, but once applied, it has no white base but an iridescent glow of light green shimmer and a touch of sparkle. Looks great alone or over other colors.
Soft, iridescent white green.
Immortality Pressed Shadow
A rainbow of sparkle in soft black. Sheer without primer or base (but…why would you use it without? Just noting that for swatching – you’ll want to apply over a primer at least), and not as deep as the loose shadow version, but buildable.
Soft black with beautiful rainbow sparkles.
Here’s another swatch of Immortality, I just love the rainbow explosion!
Soft glimmering ivory shade with just the right amount of shimmer and sparkle and a touch of coppery highlight.
Soft ivory beige with slight coppery highlight.
Glowing warm purple shimmer on black.
Warm purple shimmer, with a sparkling diamond sheen, on a black base.
I love the new colors from Fyrinnae. I’m happy that it’s not an LE collection, so the colors will be around for several months. So don’t despair if you can’t pick the new color up now, they’ll still be around. I’ll have a video up soon of my swatches.
Oh! I really like the pressed versions of Immortality and Jade Ghost. I’ll swatch them side by side with the loose soon.
I love the complexity of Bonfire Spirits. Sultry Samhain is very pretty. Mystical Hedgehog is my favorite! I’m looking forward to wearing Ghost’s Kiss. Ethereal Éire is gorgeous.
You can see my video of the swatches here. The video shows off the complexity of the colors, as well as their shimmer.
Here’s a look that I did with several of the colors.
Here’s a look that I did with Mystical Hedgehog, so awesome!

I ordered a full size of Velveteen Werewolf and a mini of Witchy Woodland Creatures along with some other stuff. Velveteen Werewolf is far and away my favorite. It’s stunning with its complexity and sparkle! Witchy Woodland Creatures is beautiful, too. Am going to have to pick up a full size of WWC before it goes bye-bye. Finally, a taupe I can wear and love!
NeenaJ You’ll definitely enjoy playing with them. They’re gorgeous.
These are all so pretty! I love Fyrinnae so much.
Emi at Project Swatch Me too Emi!
I absolutely love the Mermaid Masquerade!
KellyStallings Thanks Kelly! You should try it
Wow, this is on bare skin? Such amazing colour payoff! I’m awaiting Velveteen Werewolf but definitely going to add WWC and BS to my next order – they are beautiful. It’s awesome you got these swatches up so quickly!
trumpette Yes, these are on bare skin. I quite literally stalked Fyrinnae’s site until I saw the colors go up. I then pounced and made an order. I got them on Saturday and swatched them on Sunday so that I could get them up on Monday.

Your eyeshadow skills and placement are really becoming top notch!
Tianne Thank you!
Hi Phyrra! I’ve been reading your blog for ages now, thanks for all the wonderful reviews, looks and swatches! How do you think Moon Child compares to Finnegans Wake, which I saw swatches of and loved, but can’t find on the Fyrinnae website?
makeupxmsp I think Finnegan’s Wake was discontinued. I am guessing the best / closest replcement is either French Vanilla Shake or Moon Child.
