bright, cheap, pigmented and nicely packaged. there is a some fallout but i always have that with loose pigments. it's super vibrant and i like to pair this with candy coated for a nice dramatic eye. brilliant!
This eyeshadow has spawned a love for warm, orangey eyeshadow based looks for me. It is a vivid, shimmery koi orange with tiny reflects of peach and gold. it can be packed on a base for intensity or lightly washed. I like this in the crease with fyrinnae fire opal on the lid. Also gorgeous with MAC Burnt Burgundy pig. or Fig. 1 eyeshadow. Oranges bring out the blue in my green eyes so much. This is such a fun color.
It's amazing, that's all you need to know! Very vibrant, goes on so smoothly. I uploaded a picture -- that's elecro-koi on the lid with red panda above the crease.
In the picture I applied both colors with a damp brush. If you want it to go on more subtly/sheerly, just use it dry!
I do recommend using a base such as UDPP, but I have to use one with all eyeshadows, especially anything loose.

Electro-Koi is from Fyrinnae's May 2008 collection. It's described on the website as "Vibrant orange that's loaded with coordinating sparkle". When I apply it, it looks, well, like koi scales: brilliant orange that gleams warm gold. The texture seems to be a hybrid of their "gleaming" shades (Rapunzel Had Exensions, for example) and their sparkle shades (Kimchi), resulting in a finish that applies ultra-smoothy and really catches the light, but also sparkles and glitters. It's more golden and darker than Chlorophill, and lighter, brighter, and less pink-toned than Third Wish. Electro-Koi is great paired with Avian Shapeshifter, Taurus, and UD Lucky e/l.
