From Fryinnae's website:
They may be applied dry or wet, but for best results we recommend "patting" the colour on instead of "sweeping" it to apply, except when used over our Pixe Epoxy.
Please keep in mind that the majority of Fyrinnae colours are complex and "layered", they are not repackaged mica. This does alter the application methods for many shades vs. traditional shadows.
I've since had a chance to try out the Pixie Epoxy. I first applied an eyeshadow primer and then I patted a small amount of Pixie Epoxy on top. Then I patted some Fryinnae eyeshadow over it. The Pixie Epoxy helps to adhere the eyeshadow to your eyelids and to make the 'layers' of the eyeshadow come together so that it appears the way it was meant to.
I don't think this method is as necessary for eyeshadows such as Eternal Innocence and Gilded Wings because they apply more like a mica or loose eyeshadow. However, the darker colours definitely benefit from the use of Pixie Epoxy.
These eyeshadows are truly unique and I think that if you're into colours that are out of the ordinary, Fryinnae is a great place to find some!
