Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy Review

I have been meaning to do this review for a long time and just kept forgetting about it. Since I started writing this blog I have discovered so many brands and products that I never knew existed. Fyrinnae is one of those companies, I first saw them featured on Sirvinya's and Phyra's blogs and I knew straight away that I wanted to try some of the products. As well as selling some of the most beautiful loose eye shadows I own they also sell a product called Pixie Epoxy. This isn't a primer, it's basically a glue for eyeshadow. If you have oily lids (like me) you will still need to apply something like Urban Decay Primer Potion first.
It comes in a clear tube with a doe foot applicator, the Epoxy itself is a whitish/clear liquid that is invisible once blended. This can make any eyeshadow look 10 times better, it grabs the colour and any shimmer and holds it there. The only downside is that once the colour is applied onto it you cannot blend it as it really does hold it there, you can apply shadow again on top which you can then blend, it also works really well if you want to do a cut crease look. This works amazingly well with loose shadows, especially those with glitter/shimmer as sometimes these don't adhere to the eyelid over a normal primer.
All of these swatches are with no base on the left, over Urban Decay Primer Potion in the middle, over Pixie Epoxy on the right. I think the picture speaks for itself really, you can see how huge the difference is between the applications. With the swatch of Immortality you can see the shimmer so much more over Epoxy.

Have you tried this before? What are your thoughts?


  1. I enjoyed your review so much: this is one of my long time lusts (well not that long time really since like you, i only discovered the brand through beauty blogs). Please pretty please, will you try to do a look with these pesky barry m pigments (dazzle dusts and glitter dusts) and see how it performs?

    One day, i would love to see a blogger to do the comparison between:
    - pixie epoxy
    - that two faced glitter glue which lipglossiping wrote about
    - and 'splash proof' glitter sealer

    thank you for amazing review


  2. Great review! Do you know a place to buy this online? A Google search for it leads to their website where it says, "Product Not Found" & they have no email contact on their website. Any help would be much appreciated! *Oh, also I'm in the US, if that matters)
    Thanks! =)

  3. @ Sarah - You can get it on the Fyrinnae website, it's currently out of stock but will be back soon!
