Fyrinnae Haul, Review and Swatches

My first order from indie brand and came the last one.
I've heared so much good stuff about Fyrinnae I had to try out due to their low prices and praises.
However I was a bit dissapointed with Customer service.

I choose 3 Mini size loose eyeshadows (2,25$) and Trial size of Pixie Epoxy (2$).
I also got a free sample size of Callipygian which was a nice touch.
I choose Mephisto, Alchemist's Curse and Shenanigans.
Shipping was really affordable (around 3$) but they raise prices recently due to higher shipping costs in US.

The magic happens when you see these shadows in person - they are sparkly as sh*t.
It's just too hard to capture it's real beauty- that's when the flash comes in play.
From top shade in clockwise rotation: Alchemist's Curse, Callipygian, Shenanigans, Mephisto.

I love each and one of them and Pixie Epoxy is great for glitters too.

Small downfall: Customer service
Well...my package took about 3 months. I understand international shipping is always a pain and unpredictable. So I contacted their Customer service after 2 months and asked about it. I got a response after 2 weeks : ''Have you received your replacement parcel yet?'' They didn't reply afterwards I answered. I understand packages can get lost but they could at least say sorry or get ''more in touch'' if you know what I mean. At least I know I would!
Luckily it came today, yaaaay!

L to R lower shades: Shenanigans, Callipygian

Would I buy again from Fyrinnae?
Probably not. There's loads of indie brands out there and I can't stand being uncertain.
Their store (HERE) is also a bit hectic so I suggest to check out blogger swatches first. 
Highly suggest you to check out Darling Girl, Geek Chic and Femme Fatale (free shipping on samples) with same shifty, sparkly goodies but with more personality in my opinion.

* Just don't take this personal- I love all the shades but my contact with them was a bit loose. *
