Fyrinnae recently released a 50s Retro Collection. I picked up several of the shades to review.
I swatched all except for Hollywood Sorcery on Gosh Primer.
It Beautifies! – Softly gleaming bronze, the tone prefered by 4 out of 5 movie stars! No sparkle, but a powerful yet graceful shimmer to give you that fresh “just woke up” look we all crave. Be the envy of all your friends.
Love love love this shade! It’s so gorgeous! To me it’s a bronze with gold overtones.
Console Television – Sandy taupe, close to Envy Me and Evocation, but lacking highlights, and made with a more transparent base hue to enable easier blending into other shades or to sheer out the color. Makes a greal wash to pair with a bold red lip. Subdued shimmer finish: more gleam than satin, but not sparkly.
This really reminds me of an old black and white tv, almost greenish around the edges of the taupe. Definitely sandy brown grey.
Monster Movie – Soft, nearly matte light sage green with a subtle touch of copper shimmer. The perfect shade to be caught dead in when the 20 Foot Spacemen from the Swamps of Mars come to take you away. Not lip-safe.
The copper shimmer was very shy for me, I couldn’t get it to come out but I’m going to try again.
Mauve-O-Matic – Multi-faceted mauve with a varying sheen. It’s not overly shimmery, but more dimensional than a satin finish. Not as pink as it appears here.
Very pretty pinky mauve.
Housework Pearls – Soft, satiny peach with a gentle gleam, but no shimmer.
Like the redder parts of a peach skin, but definitely not red. Very much peach. I really like.
Hollywood Sorcery – A completely transparent soft bronze glow, not sparkle, that doubles as a light-diffusing powder. This powder contains no titanium dioxide or other whiteners, so can work on any skintone. May add a slight hue to pale skin. Use as an accent or all over face.
This adds a beautiful gleam anywhere you apply it.
