Fyrinnae Polar Bear and Purgatory Eyeshadow Swatches, Review, and Pictures

It's taken me way too long to post about the two eyeshadows I got in my most recent Fyrinnae order, especially considering how pretty the colors are. I went back and forth on which colors to get but settled on Polar Bear (I've been looking for a white gold similar to Ben Nye's Iced Gold) and Purgatory (I blame Mandy and her swatch post for this).

Polar Bear and Purgatory were swatched dry over Too Faced Shadow Insurance and taken in natural daylight.

Polar Bear: "White gold, shimmery and soft (brilliant gold when the light hits it but not yellow)" There's just something about this eyeshadow that makes me really happy. I like using it as an inner corner highlight (I think white looks too stark for my skintone) and as a color on the middle of my eyelid to add dimension to warm toned looks. I think this eyeshadow shows that while Fyrinnae are bomb ass at making extremely unique eyeshadows, they do the basic shades really well.

Purgatory: "Almost metallic red shines over a black base" First off, I love the name. Secondly, since it's a black based shade, it fares best when patted on versus being sweeped on to get the red shimmery to show and if used with a glitter fixative like Pixie Epoxy. This is a really dense eyeshadow, a little bit goes a LONG way on your eyes.

These are two very awesome shades and I also can't wait to try out some of the new eyeshadows they just released.

Do you have any Fyrinnae eyeshadows? What are your favorites?


  1. I accept full responsibility! ;-)

  2. These two are now officially on my "Fyrinnae to get" list.

  3. I was introduced to Fyrinnae by a friend and got a bit mad, ordering samples in heaps. Best eyeshadows ever, in my opinion. I was a bit saddened when they drastically cut down the number of their shades and most of my favourites went.

  4. Purgatory looks so gorgeous! I already have 'Polar Bear' and love wearing it with 'Shrouded in Gold' - which is definitely one of my favourite Fyrinnae shades :)

  5. I'm so curious of eyeshadows from this brand.
    Have yet to try them out, but feel the urge of ordering some!
