Fyrinnae Velvet Vampire Look

Remember the other day when I said that Fyrinnae's Velvet Vampire was a must have? I meant it. It is one of the greatest eyeshadows I've ever seen. It's a burgundy based duochrome; if it were a nail polish I'd call it a glass fleck. It has little pearls of iridescent crystal-like shimmer that shift colors and sparkle even in really low light. I did this look with it the other day and I couldn't get over how amazing Velvet Vampire looked. I wore Kat Von D Lightning Sheer Lipgloss in Stormy (smoky red shimmer) with it, but my pictures of that didn't turn out. My lip pictures never turn out... But anyway, I took a bunch of pictures of the eyeshadow. Gah, I love it so much.

Natural light:


This was:
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Fyrinnae Velvet Vampire applied wet on lid
The black half of the Hourglass Prism duo in crease and lower lashline
MAC Reflects Blackened Red glitter on top of the black in the crease
Fyrinnae Cheeky to highlight
Black liquid liner (I don't remember which one I used)
Cover Girl Lash Blast

I know I didn't capture the full beauty of this color, but you can at least get an idea of how it looks. It shifts colors when you blink! It's so sparkly and sexy and vampy, it really does look like velvet. I couldn't have picked a more perfect name for this color myself.

On a sidenote, Cheeky is my new favorite highlight color. I'm going to have to order a full size soon. It's close to the color I would normally use on my browbone, but it's special 'cause it has a hint of red shimmer to it. Subtle, but really special. Makes a nice neutral lid color, too.


  1. it's so dark and mysterious! Love it!


  2. It's gorgeous!!!
    I right now in love!!
    So beautiful!

  3. Is this a good primer? have you used urban decay's? If yes can you tell me which one is better?

  4. wow Velvet Vampire looks so great on you - it does not look like a pretty color in the photo sample on Fyrinnae's site!

  5. Une Ruxi a Paris, Too Faced Shadow Insurance? Yes, it's great! It's my holy grail primer. I like Urban Decay's too, but I prefer Shadow Insurance. I can't tell which will be better for you, but Shadow Insurance is better for me; sometimes I find it harder to blend shadows over Urban Decay Primer Potion.

  6. Yes that's what I was talking about. thank you

  7. OMG, that is a really beautiful and daring. Suits your colours perfectly. You look like Cleopatra or perhaps queen of Sheba. :)

  8. Velvet Vampire is also one of my favorite Fyrinnae colors. I agree that it is a MUST HAVE! This is gorgeous on you!

  9. I think I'm going to have to try to replicate this look the next time I go out dancing. Gorgeous!
