my fyrinnae e/s samples have arrived!

looks better used:

i had such high hopes for bastet.. in the jar it looks like urban decay’s stash (which is AMAZING), but it just looks black (instead of green) with glitter. i know you’re not suppose to swipe fyrinnae’s e/s’s (as it may ruin the color..) but even when i pat it on it still looks ‘ehhhhhhhh’.

err.. sorry i got too excited about this one LOL! i pretty much used it up as soon as i got it.. forgot to take a pic..

BUT! i do have a picture of it swatched on my eye:

i originally bought these to play with as e/s, but i find that they are too hard to work with. :/ they won’t stay unless you have a base- like.. they literally blow off… and patting is annoying because then the powder gets everywhere @_@

so i think i’m going to just use these to make some frankenpolishes.

clear polish + lancome loose powder + fyrinnae ‘newcastle’ +  fyrinnae ‘gilded wings’ + a little bit of fyrinnae ‘bastet’

this actually dried matte! is it because the powder is matte?? 😮

clear polish + fyrinnae ‘atomic afterglow’ + a little bit of fyrinnae ‘chrome’ for a shimmer finish

i refranken’d this with merlot to make it a darker purple 🙂

clear polish + fyrinnae ‘merlot’ + fyrinnae ‘android angel’ + fyrinnae ‘meerkat’ + cream white polish + fyrinnae ‘neo universe’

so it wasn’t that great of an idea to use neo universe.. or is it andriod angel? i can’t tell which one it is.. but one of them has glitters that refuse to mix! it always separates and sinks to the bottom. sigh. oh well- i guess i like it better without glitter anyway!

wet ‘n’ wild ‘caribbean blue’ + fyrinnae ‘biker chic’

bobbi brown ‘baby pink 3’ + fyrinnae ‘arcane magic sorceress’ + a little bit of fyrinnae ‘bastet’ + a little bit of fyrinnae ‘biker chic’

wet ‘n’ wild – ‘french cream’ + a little bit of chinaglaze ‘shower together’

i really like this color! 🙂 blues are my fave ♥

jordana ‘crimson’ + wet ‘n’ wild ‘french cream’

clear polish + fyrinnae ‘shrouded in gold’ + chinaglaze ‘tree hugger’

clear polish + fyrinnae ‘shrouded in gold’

i made this sheer so i could layer it! it looks great layered:
