From one beauty junkie to another <3

Monthly Archives: March 2012

First of all I am sorry about my unannounced hiatus. I was on vacation and feeling less than motivated but here I am back on track. Today I have some more Fyrinnae swatches for you. Descriptions are from the Fyrinnae website and all swatches are over Darling Girl Cosmetics Glitter Glue.

Velvet Vampire- a complex deep reddish hue that varies between molten cool crimson and a firey phoenix-red, all laced with gold sparkle and glimmer. Bring it closer to light or change the angle, and it turns to a metallic glittering gold with subtle “underhues” of copper.
