Pixie Epoxy Review

Hey guys!

So as you know last week i got my Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy sample. It came in a tiny jar with a flip top lip.

Fyrinnae describes this product as:

" not an eye shadow primer, or really a base. It is to keep sparkles on or to make shimmery shadows appear "glossy". This "glue" is designed to hold the sparkliest, most shimmery eye shadows in place and minimize "fallout". Can also be used to retain a "wet" or "glossy" look to loose shadows. Don't worry, it's easily washed off, and while keeps shadows in a water-resistant state, the product itself is water-soluble (no silicones or oils). "

I've been using this for a few days now and i found that it really does work!

It intensified my Shadows, makes them last twice as long as they would normally and prevents nearly all of the fallout. I've tried it over my Lip Lustres and and lip sticks - it works really well the seal in the colour and make it last for so long (until you eat of course)

Even though the shadows look wet they really aren't, its super easy to blend them and the pigments can be "swept" over the epoxy rather than patted, which also makes blending that much easier!
The one thing that i really love about this product is its tackyness. it literally grabs onto the shadow without any rubbing or serious work.

If your looking for something that is going to make your shadows more vibrant and last longer i highly recommend trying this out. Get a sample like i did (it was like $1US, so worth it!) and you will realise hope much you needed this.

I am so sorry for not updating sooner =(

Its been so freaking busy around here i've barely had enough time to breathe!
But im back now for another haul. Yay!

Today i got a couple of things. One was my Fyrinnae order and the other was a couple things i got off an ebay seller.
First off is the Fyrinnae order.

LINE 1 - Pixie Epoxy, Turquoise Tease Liner, Melancholy Lip Lustre
LINE 2 - Dark Magik, Broken Doll , Mirrors, Samhain Spirits, Medium Matte Bronzer
LINE 3 - Otherworld, Orca, Dragon's Wings, Curiouser and Curiouser!, Intrigue (blush), The Fancy Lad

Swatch of Line 1 - the Pixie Epoxy is a "tacky" base for sparkly shadows so i wont swatch it yet i plan on doing a review and a few swatches after i get a feel for how to use it properly ^_^

Swatch of Line 2 - Sadly my camera couldn't pick up the sparkles in Mirrors (third from the bottom)

Swatch of Line 3

The second thing i got today was my order from Ebay. Both of these products can be bought from the Coast Scents website. However i got them from this Ebay seller, Joilee, for a lot cheaper - so if u like anything from Coastal Scents check them out, it could save you a bit of money ^_^

Contour and Blush Palette - the pans in this are HUGE!
Im so excited to finally have got this. Initally the only thing stopping me was the price, $19US is a bit much to pay for a palette. But on Ebay you can get it for about $10.50 AUS - need i explain more?

Turqouise Gel Liner

Thats it for my Haul - hope u guys enjoyed it and get inspired to check out Joilee's ebay store!
