Brand impression: Fyrinnae

About:

Always 100% cruelty-free. Fyrinnae is not a “mineral” makeup company. We create unique cosmetics, all of which are vegan (this means no silk, carmine, pearl, beeswax, etc). We’re dedicated to serving customers of any gender and any skintone.

Our popular loose eye shadows: we do not take pre-made mica colourants and add our own label, or shake two or three colours together and deem it a new product. Our rich colours are formulated by us, some of them taking hours to get just right. With so many shades, we need to re-make large batches (not each colour per order as that would be absurd, but each shade is re-made at least twice a month, more often for the biggest sellers) of at least four colours every day, not to mention the other cosmetics, and then each “batch” is tested for both colour and composition. Rest assured that we work every single day so that orders are out the door as soon as possible. We never take holidays! We stay from morning to late night most days to ensure as many purchases as possible are shipped the next morning.

What is marketed as “natural” or “pure” mineral makeup really isn’t. All of the ingredients in mineral makeup are purified and lab-treated. Many are man-made. Mica, while a natural occuring mineral, doesn’t come in uniform little blue micro-flakes. It is an off-white or dull grey platelet that for cosmetic grade is chemically treated, ground, processed again, filtered, and in many cases, enhanced with a base colorant such as iron oxide or titanium dioxide.
