Swatches: Fyrinnae Exquisites Collection *PIC HEAVY*

I purchased this.

Yesterday I posted a sneak peek of Fyrinnae's new Exquisites collection. I was disappointed that the sun wasn't out, because I couldn't capture the complete gorgeousness of the shadows. As it turns out, yesterday's photos in the overcast lighting brought out some completely different tones in these shadows than I was able to capture in direct sunlight today.

Oh, I also picked up a sample of a Lip Lustre in Sexy Nerd, which I'll swatch below the eye shadow swatches.

Fyrinnae says that these Exquisite shadows "have stronger color shifts without depending on an opaque base hue, making them stunning alone or over many other colors. The transparency makes them suitable for a wide variety of skintones without compromising color." Because of that, in addition to regular swatches over a clear, sticky base, I also decided to swatch them over several other base colors.

As always, click on the images to see them in much higher resolution.

This first set of swatches are swatched over Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy and were taken in direct sunlight.

The following set of swatches are swatches over Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy and were taken in overcast, natural lighting with a flash fill. Click on one of these photos to see the awesome pink and green sparkles in Dreamwoven that aren't as obvious in the other swatches!

This next set of swatches are swatched over Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy and were taken in shade, no flash.

These next three sets of swatches were taken over various colored bases. The top row is black, second row is blue, third row is green, fourth row is orange, fifth row is pink, and bottom row is silver. (Sorry they're not prettier--I can never figure out how to compensate for the curves of my hand when I do hand swatches!)

I didn't swatch any over a white base because, based on yesterday's sneak peek swatches (which you can see here), I wasn't particularly impressed with any of them over a white base compared to over my bare skin.

 Finally, I have swatches of the Lip Lustre, Sexy Nerd.

And finally, what Sexy Nerd looks like on my lips. It's not as bright as it is when I swatch on my arm or hand and I'm unable to build up the color. It's a soft pink with a hint of a gold sheen, and I absolutely adore it. It's a perfect everyday color for me. 


My favorite Exquisites are Dreamwoven Luxuries and On Wings Of Silk. I love how On Wings Of Silk looks over the pink base and how Elegant Revelry looks over the black and green bases.

Fyrinnae's Exquisites eye shadows are $8 for a full size jar or $2.75 for a mini jar. Lip Lustres are $7 for a full size or $2.00 for a 1.75 ml trial size.

What do you think of Fyrinnae's new Exquisites eyeshadows? If you get any, do you plan to wear alone or over a colored base?
