Fyrinnae Eyeshadow Swatches (PIC HEAVY)

I know I have been doing A LOT of swatches, there is good reasoning. The medicine that I was on caused my skin to go absolutely haywire! It is SO dry & cracked, plus i have cystic pimples all over (a side effect of 2 medicines.)
 These are all of the eye shadows that I recently purchased from Fyrinnae. It took me forever to figure out which swatches were which!
All swatches are done dry first & then with Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy.
1. Knickers in a Twist - This shade is a deep taupe with subtle bronze shimmer.
2. Newcastle - Sparkly, deep antique bronze-gold.
3. Dinosaur Plushie - A flamboyant, eclectic dinosaur covered in glitter, perhaps. Name is unrelated to shade... as usual. Dinosaur Plushie is filled with multi-colored sparkle, some of which can change hue in different light. Transparent over most primers or applied dry (don't apply this dry unless you're going for that all-over disco queen look), but over sticky base, like Pixie Epoxy, it is gleaming pale metallic with many flashes of colours. Replaces our old shade Equality (and Mischief Makers), but Dino is much more sparkling & multi-dimensional
4. Envy Me - Soft tan-taupe with a subtle green sheen.
5. Sacred -  Not gold, this shade is a light, gleaming truly metallic taupe. It does lean warm, but is suitable for many skin tones. Contains very little mica to retain a metallic sheen without sparkle or matte appearance.
6. Rapunzel Has Extensions - Pale Pink with a stunning brilliant light gold highlight.
7. Mischievous Sidhe - Brilliant, glittering, shining, semi-metallic gold. Yellow & rich like real 24 karat, with no beige or bronze hues. Appears to be a mustard shade in the jar, but is metallic and sparkling once applied. Sidhe is pronounced "shee".
8. Lucky Charmed - Lush, metallic golden green with a touch of green sparkle throughout.
9. Bonfire Spirits - Smoldering warm red and a touch of chartreuse mingle in deep base. The green appears more blue at an angle or with light changes. Somewhat of a "vampy" earth tone.
10. Polar Bear - Pale gold, shimmery and soft (brilliant gold when the light hits it, but not yellow). Like the hue of a polar bear's fur in the summer. 
11. Gilded Wings - Intense, saturated metallic bronze-gold. Glimmering, gleaming and rich.
12. Dressed To Kill - Glimmering, glowing gilded green with flashes of gold and green sparkle. (Not Lip Safe)
13. Witchy Woodland Creatures - Glimmering, multi- faceted cocoa taupe. Shades of copper and silver, with hints of  pink, gold and green shimmer on a neutral taupe-brown base make this shadow suitable for a wide range of skin tones.
14. Nijiro - Ivory with rainbow sparkles.
15. Kurisumasu! - Versatile satiny rosy beige shade with flashes of sparkle. Great for a highlight or all over basic shade that can suit many skin tones. 
Hope you like them!
