Playing with Fyrinnae Sennyo and Layer Effects with MAC Stars 'n Rockets

This may have been one of my more brighter eyes...

Yeah I know it doesn't look bright.... yet!

Yeah now that is what I am talking about! Fyrinnae Sennyo! I received this as a sample with a Fyrinnae order. I am going to have to figure out some more ways to use this one because it is quite interesting.

  • Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy - dabbed on lid
  • Fyrinnae Eye Shadow in Sennyo - patted onto lid. also lightly brushed on the bottom lid. You really have to pack this on to get the color I got here. Don't be shy!
  • Urban Decay Eye Shadow in Naked - in crease
  • Urban Decay Eye Shadow in Sin - brow highlight, and a small bit on the inner corner
  • MAC Eye Kohl in Smolder - Rimmed the eyes. I put it on after the Sennyo and then got a strange effect when I smudged it in - it turned purple! (more on that below).
  • MAC Plushlash Mascara in Plusblack
  • MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC15
  • MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in By Candlelight - brushed around face.
  • Nars Matte Velvet Lip Pencil in Bettina - Just by itself. This is a gorgeous color and a nice compliment to an otherwise neutral face, I think. Worth picking up!
 Fyrinnae Sennyo and MAC Stars 'n Rockets
There are similarities in these two colors, and both have interesting effects when placed over black. Sennyo is definately the darker color and it's duochrome effect is quite different. See this swatch below:

Both over MAC Smolder Eye Kohl

This is what I love about colors like this. It's practically like getting two different shades for the price of one when you layer it over black. But notice the Fyrinnae has a less duochrome effect than the MAC shadow. The application and texture are obviously different. But the two colors each produce over black are just beautiful. I love the Royal Purple that Sennyo turns into and the bright blue that Stars 'n Rockets becomes when layered.

Just something to think about.
