Fyrinnae does, in fact, make matte eyeshadow colors! And even more exciting, I own some of them!
Now, Fyrinnae is obviously known for making glittery, complex eyeshadows with lots of layers of color and sparkle. However. Being the boring elderly non-vampiric mortal human person that I am, I’m not always in the mood to sparkle. Sometimes, a person just wants a nice matte eyeshadow. And wouldn’t you know? Fyrinnae augments their extensive collection of shimmery, glittery sparklies with a smaller but equally beautiful collection of matte and low-shimmer colors.
I’ve gotten my paws on a few of them, and let me just say that yes, they are every bit as stunning as the shinier ones. The colors are incredibly saturated and lush. And although mattes can be difficult–patchy to apply and a bitch to blend–Fyrinnae’s mattes are anything but. They apply just as smoothly as the shimmery shades and blend like a dream.
Enough of my blathering! Here we have two mattes–Marshmallow Puffs, a no-nonsense white, and Ravens and Writing Desks, a stunning violety purple that’s a bit on the pink side–and one low-shimmer shade, Tasmanian Devil, a purple-leaning pink with a sort of bluish cast.
Pardon the spottiness of my skin in these photos. You see, there comes a time in every godforsaken month for approximately 45 years of a young woman’s life when she cries for no reason, is mean to her boyfriend and/or mother who didn’t do anything to deserve it, retains five to seven pounds worth of water, eats all the potato chips, and breaks out like a goddamn 15-year-old.
Here come the giant eyeballs! Super macro mode FTW! Incidentally, when you read the words “super macro,” I’d appreciate it if you’d pronounce it in your head (or right out loud, if the spirit moves you) in the style of a Mexican TV announcer. SSSUUUUP-ERRR MACROOOOO!

It’s been more humid than usual around here (we have some sort of subtropical air hanging around), and it’s making my hair super curly. Check it!
