Swatches and Review: Fyrinnae Snow Leopard, Jade Ghost, Meerkat, and comparison between pressed and loose Mephisto

When we last left our hero, she had confessed to quickly exchanging coin with Fyrinnae once again upon the unexpected appearance of a wild Loose Mephisto Shadow in their lands. What could be the result of such a venture? Will our hero come out unscathed?DSC_0249

 

AHERM. Needless to say, my second little Fyrinnae order arrived today! (Exercising self control to not include additional exclamation points). The gods have smiled upon me and allowed both of my orders to arrive on days when I have time to dick around with my spoils.

Here we see Meerkat, Jade Ghost, Snow Leopard, Mephisto, and a full size Pygmy Hippo lip lustre! This beautiful little bundle was sitting in my mailbox when I got home from a dog jog, so I didn’t even have to pretend I wasn’t intending to ambush my mailman when he arrived…since I never had the chance to. I feel pretty charmed with my Fyrinnae shipping, because both of my packages have arrived to me not TWO DAYS after they were dropped in the mail. Two days!! For all of the impatience I am having to adjust to with ordering indies, my present balm is that I live only a couple of states away from Fyrinnae, so I get it about as quickly as I would my Sephora VIB Rouge two-day shipping.

Onward!

Swatches and Review: First Indie order… Fyrinnae! Shadows and Pygmy Hippo lip lustre

Ok, let’s get this puppy rolling! (I guess that should be hedgehog, or armadillo, or something?)

I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t wait in my big fluffy armchair by Bird TV (my windows by my bird feeders) most of the afternoon to make sure I was lurking RIGHT THERE like a psycho when the mailman arrived. It helps me to imagine that I was being productive checking some work e-mails and doing some photo editing in the meantime, but let’s be honest. I was really just waiting for the mailman, and waiting because I knew he had my Fyrinnae order!

My collection of large company cosmetics is pretty well developed (too large, in some ways… don’t worry, I’ll share all together too much about it), but I am only just dipping my toes into indie makeup companies. I have in the past ordered some Portland Black Lipstick Company lipsticks, I love Sugarpill eyeshadows, and I have some Hello Waffle Cosmetics lip balms, but that is largely the extent of my experience. Loose shadows have terrified me for as long as I have known about them, and loose blushes were even worse.

BUT NO LONGER.
