I absolutely adore the versatility of Fyrinnae's Montalivet. It shows up as a beautiful shimmery nude color on my Tan skin. I like to use it just under my eyebrows to highlight my brow bone together with Finnegan's Wake. I then smooth pixie epoxy on my eyelid only and use any of my favorite trios on my lid such as my copper combo: Rapunzel had extentions, Lust Bunnies and BBQ Sauce
As another use, I occasionally smooth a tiny amount of Montalivet on the center of my lip, on top of my lip gloss, to add some depth to my lips.
I find myself frequently reaching for Montalivet, and I will certainly be repurchasing it in the future.
I got this as a free sample with my order, and it's turned out to be my favorite of all the e/s in that order. It's a really versatile color. I can use is as an all over wash for those days that I don't have time to do MU, or I can concentrate it on my lids to really brighten my eyes. I pair it with Feline Familiars at the outer corners to make a soft, smokey eye look that is not over the top for daytime. On my skin, it shows up as a soft, shimmery peach that is very flattering. It can also be used as highlighter on my cheekbones on top of my regular blush. Even though it's a great color, I only gave it 4 lippies because Fyrinnae shadows can sometimes end up looking splotchy if the time is not taken to really pat them on.
This is my favorite Fyrinnae shadow thus far. I got a sample size and I fully intend on getting a full size next time I order.
This is great as an all-over lid color. Also, I like it on my inner 2/3 of my lid and then a slash of color on the outside V.
Really multi-pupose and looks great with brown eyes.
UPDATE: I still LOVE this color. I could use it everyday. So versatile. Love love love
This it a beautful peachy bronze shimmery color that looks very beautiful on the eyes! It is what I would call a luxury color in that it makes your eyes look captivating and really seductive in a way that many eyeshadows can't do. I got a sample of this with an order from Fyrinnae and I use it whenever I have somewhere really special to go. As, it works perfectly to especially give you that evening glamorous look that is so appealing.
This is beautiful light gold-peach-champagne shade that is very silky and lustrous. More of a shimmer than a sparkle to it, and it's very 'luxe' feeling. Makes either a great highlighter or a great lid color, depending on your skin tone; I'm a medium-gold complected person (MAC NC30, Fyrinnae Sunstone, EM Winged Butter) so I use this as both. This goes on very smoothly; I recommend using dry over a paint base. The online swatch colors do not do this justice. I got a sample and now I want a full size. Beautiful.
This reminds me a little bit of Bare Escentuals' Glimpse in "Soul" for it's eye-brightening, look-i'm-really-wide-awake-and-happy-to-see-you effect. Except Montalivet is a pale 'nude' color with a peach undertone and a lovely, soft sheen, especially when it's buffed a little. Very pretty and understated, perfect for a natural daytime look. It's a fairly common shade but this is the subtlest one I've come across to date. I have a sample I received as an extra in a swap and may purchase or swap for a larger size when I'm through with it.
Skin Type: Normal to dry, tans easily, rarely breaks out. Skintone: LLL (olive skin tone) Haircolor: Changes frequently Right now, dark cool brown with red and caramel highlights. Eye Color: Espresso brown.

When I saw this I envisioned myself at a nude beach in Sydney, Australia being drizzled with Dulce de Leche sauce. Oh wait, no reason to envision that happened. Anyhow, onto the description of the eyeshadow.
Montalivet is along the lines of the fleshtones that I own. Finneganís Wake being the lightest, Taurus in the middle, then Montalivet. This is a soft peachy caramel shimmer. Compared to Rapunzel this one is warm toned and has little pink. Compared to Peach Buns, this isnít as tan.
The texture is smooth and silky, just remember to pat it on instead of swiping to minimize fallout. The pigmentation is concentrated. Dry the color is soft and ethereal, foiled the color turns into a slightly naughty fleshy glow. This is a color that would be perfect for the shimmery nude eye (pun ). Or on the cheeks for a highlighter and lips for that sexy pout.
No matter how it is used, this is one sexy fleshtone!
