Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy is a remarkable product, and one that’s completely different to any eyeshadow base/primer type product I’ve ever used.

I’ve been playing around with it the last week or so, testing it out with different types of eyeshadows and techniques and getting a better feel for the product (there was a lot of FAIL along the way lol).

I really liked the effect of using Pixie Epoxy on my Ameli Black Scandal eyeshadow (swatched in yesterday’s Pixie Epoxy review) so I thought I would photograph a look with it. Enjoy!

The main thing that I noticed using Pixie Epoxy with Black Scandal versus without is that the shimmer in the shadow is much more pronounced, and it does not budge.

Interestingly, ‘Black Scandal’ looks more black used on it’s own (the shimmer component mostly gets eaten by the brush), and more metallic blue when used with Pixie Epoxy.
