You can buy sample sizes (1/3 tsp or .4 -.7 grams) for $2.25 or full sizes (3 grams) for $6.25. I chose to try a few samples so that I could A) see if I like the color, and B) determine if I am clever enough to use these.
I also ordered a sample size of their eyeshadow base called Pixie Epoxy, which is used to help loose eyeshadows and glitter adhere to the lid better and enhance the color of the shadow. It is worn over a primer (the primer prevents creasing and Pixie Epoxy doesn't).
On to the colors!
I chose from their regular loose eyeshadows: (color descriptions taken from the Fyrinnae website since I stink at describing colors)
Serendipity -- "glowing iridescent copper highlight (hue may vary due to translucent dark base)"
Immortality -- "a rainbow of sparkle in soft black"
Meerkat -- "vibrant pink-purple with gold shimmer and sparkle highlight"
And from the Arcane Magic eyeshadows collection (shadows with highlights that change color depending on how the light hits it (duochrome effect type thingy)):
Velvet Vampire -- "complex deep reddish hue... turns to a metallic glittering gold with "underhues" of copper"
Mystical Hedgehog -- "vibrant, shimmering purple with turquoise-green highlight at a distance, but changes to a warmer purple to pink at an angle or close to light"
The sample I received was:
Cupcake Frosting -- "a "glowing" soft pink shade"
Swatched dry, no primer or base:
Swatches over Pixie Epoxy:
|Cupcake Frosting, Mystical Hedgehog, Velvet Vampire|
|Serendipity, Immortality, Meerkat|
These are all so gorgeous and really unusual! I'm looking forward to showing off some off the looks I create with them.
More about their loose shadows (from their About Us page): Our rich colours are formulated by us, some of them taking hours to get just right. With so many shades, we need to re-make large batches (not each colour per order as that would be absurd, but each shade is re-made at least twice a month, more often for the biggest sellers) of at least four colours every day, not to mention the other cosmetics, and then each "batch" is tested for both colour and composition.
