Fyrinnae Aztec Gold Pressed Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

Fyrinnae Aztec Goldd - Pressed

A little while ago – when I purchased all of these loose Fyrinnae shades – I also purchased Fyrinnae Aztec Gold, which is only available in pressed form.

For a comparison of Fyrinnae’s loose and pressed eyeshadows and a review of the pressed formula, please see this post, which compares swatches of same shade in loose and pressed form over different primers.

Today’s post is photographs & swatches of Aztec Gold:

Fyrinnze Aztec Gold - swatches

no primer / over primer

As regular readers know, I usually swatch without primer, but this shade performs so much better with primer that I swatched it both with & without. I used my everyday primer, NYX HD.

I don’t have any similar shades – Inglot 433 (swatched) looks similar in the pan, but completely different when swatched.  Nothing else comes close!

If this is a shade that appeals to you (I love it myself) I would definitely recommend it – the quality is great, and the color is unique.  I just wish you could buy the pan only instead of the whole eyeshadow pot!

Fyrinnae pressed eyeshadow, as well as other Fyrinnae products, can only be purchased online.

    This is SO pretty! I love shades like this! I have been curious about Fyrinnae for a while bc I know you and Kate from Drivel about Frivol really like them. I do prefer my shadows pressed though so I’m glad they are making these now (unless they’ve been around for a while and I just didn’t know? :P). Must definitely check them out!

    That is a gorgeous shade! I want to try their pressed shadows next time – loose ones are just not as easy to use!

    The shade without primer is already darn good, and with primer it looks even better!

    I can’t believe I have yet to make a purchase from Fyrinnae, this shade is so pretty! I don’t really know much about Fyrinnae pressed eyeshadows, but I think it looks just as pigmented as their loose ones, even without primer!

    Is it similar at all to L’Oreal Infallible Gleaming Bronze?

    Their website is down. :( Do you recall the price of the pressed shadows? I may check them out, I’m always looking for unique shades which can be few and far between in the mass market brands, yet I just don’t want to deal with the mess of loose shadows which all most of the independent brands offer.

      I believe they were $8.50 – if that’s not the exact price, it’s pretty close!
