Purple is my Purpose: Some Fyrinnae Swatches

I just can't sit around doing nothing. And I already have withdrawal symptoms from makeup.

So, because I can't make myself pretty at the moment, I decided that I should swatch some of my Fyrinnae purples. Some people ask me "Why do you always wear purples? Don't they all look the same?". The answer is there are plenty of purples, ranging from fresh lavenders to darker royal purples. I don't think I even have two purples that would look exactly the same.

These are not all of the purples I have from Fyrinnae but I wanted to give you a range of purples from the soft to the edgy. I pat the eyeshadows on, using TFSI + Pixie Epoxy as a primer (TFSI as a base topped with pixiepoxy).





Top row (from left to right): Tempting Hansel, Snow Bunny, Meerkat, Sennyo
Bottom row (from L to R): Bubble Tea, Twinkle Twinkle Little Bat, Lemming, Parental Advisory, Delvian





Top Row (L to R): Broken Doll, Arctic Fox, Sluagh, Shinigami, Mephisto
Bottom one: Freya

I hate that I couldn't take better pictures, some of the shades don't even look purple. BUT that's because the guys of Fyrinnae are wizards in making colours that have different tones in them.

The sparkliest in terms of multicolour glitter type-thingy are probably Twinkle Twinkle Little Bat and Shinigami. As you can see, most of the colours are dual-toned. For example, Tempting Hansel has aqua sparks in it, Meerkat has that golden glow and Mephisto looks almost reddish/coppery.

So all purples are not the same. And I shall continue on my quest to collect more of them BECAUSE THEY ROCK.

Wow, they really are all completely different! I guess not all purples are created equal ;]

SilhoutteScreams: This is what I love about Fyrinnae. They have tons of different colours that are seemingly in the same colour family. I'm going to do a similar post with their pinks and greens at least :)

Lillian: Have you tried Fyrinnae's Fanservice lip lustre? I'm going to swatch that as soon as I can, it's really lovely.

This post definitely proves it: the purples are all different!

How can you choose which to use when they all have their own charm?

Anyway, thanks for the swatches. I'll have to have a purple day tomorrow. :D

Saila said...

Painted Moogle: Yay, happy purple day to you :>
