Fyrinnae’s Halloween 2011 collection

I waited so long to list this collection because it took me a while to order, and then even longer to swatch the colors. At least with Fyrinnae their collections aren’t really LE, so the colors are all available long after their launch (barring sudden discontinuations of any of the ingredients.) I love Alchemist’s Curse and Are You My Mummy. The color-switch is the most visible in those two. Steampunk is gorgeous, as well! There have been raves for Book of the Dead, and it’s a lovely shadow. Not my favorite shade, but excellent adhesion and opacity. Purgatory and Dorian Gray didn’t really thrill me as much as I’d hoped…but neither is a truly unattractive color. Bride of Frankenstein has the least visible switch of all the Arcane Magic shadows in this collection, aside from Raven’s Prophecy. A small collection, but some great shades.

This collection contained:

  • Arcane Magic: Alchemist’s Curse — blackened burgundy purple / copper-brown duochrome sparkle
  • Arcane Magic: Are You My Mummy? — forest-green / cool pink duochrome sparkle (missing AM: Farseer or AM: Archmage? Get this one instead)
  • Arcane Magic: Bride of Frankenstein — deep lapis base with turquoise and green duochrome shimmer
  • Arcane Magic: Raven’s Prophecy — black base with lime-blue / pink-turquoise duochrome sparkle
  • Arcane Magic: Steampunk — blackened copper-brown / blackened gold with pink sparkle
  • Arcane Magic: Wake Not the Dead — dark violet / bright violet sparkle
  • Book of the Dead — tan-gold sheen (replacement for Griffonrider)
  • Dorian Gray — dark charcoal with silver-blue shimmer
  • Purgatory — metallic blackened red shimmer
