Lovely Lip Lustres

Fyrinnae Lip Lustres!

Top to bottom: Kitty Ears, Romantique, Pink Guitar, Flavor Of The Day, and Lace Gloves.

Ingredients: Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Oil, Mica, Orbignya Oleifera (Babassu) Seed Oil, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Iron Oxides, Tocopherol Acetate (Vitamin E, as a natural oil preservative), Flavor. May contain: Titanium Dioxide, Tin Oxide, Manganese Violet.

These are in the small 3.5ml sizes, which cost $2.50 each. This size is currently unavailable , but the regular-sized tubes are at a reduced price of $4.

Swatches in the same order. In the photo, it's not showing but Romantique (2nd swatch) has a slight, warm pink tinge to it, and Pink Guitar (3rd swatch), while it's showing up as barbie pink, is a purplish, deep pink in actual.

Product descriptions:

Kitty Ears - a shimmery golden tan. Slight rosy hue so it's not pure brown. Coconut scent.
Romantique - a semi-sheer soft warm pink with gold shimmer, similar to our "Rapunzel" eyeshadow. Coconut scent.
Pink Guitar - a rich medium pink. Virgin Mojito scent
Flavor Of The Day - a semi-sheer light peach-pink with gold shimmer. One of the most shimmery Lustres. Strawberry Cotton Candy scent.
Lace Gloves - sheer with pink and red highlights (wear alone for a touch of colour or over lipstick). Raspberry scent.

I was initially turned off by Fyrinnae's long processing time (currently 7-18 business days), but I was more curious than impatient. And my package was shipped out 8 days after I ordered, which is not bad! They emailed a shipping notification.

The Lip Lustres are described as a non-sticky lipcolour 'stain' which are not supposed to be like lipgloss, non-drying, and opaque in color. And yes, they are exactly all of the above. If you remember Max Factor's Lipfinity, they apply similarly. But the Lip Lustres are not as hardcore. And I like that it's easier to remove! Still, good staying power.

I don't detect any taste to them, and they barely have a scent (each one's supposed to have one like lychee or raspberry), which is fine by me. Regarding color, they're totally packed, and they really are opaque. There are many shades to choose from, and I chose the more subdued colors. They have a lot wilder ones. I'm liking the ones I picked, I can really work with them. I think Flavor of the Day will suit most warm toned girls.

Oh and here's the free sample I received:

Snow Leopard eyeshadow -a soft, deep taupe shade that has subtle hues of rose.

I know Fyrinnae is known for their eyeshadow and I tried to see which ones I wanted to get, but me knowing nothing about eye makeup got soooo overwhelmed by the choices and ended up not getting anything. Haha! Anyway, Fyrinnae, don't take the Lip Lustres away! I want more!

Tip: For orders $20 and above, Fyrinnae ships for free worldwide. It's on the homepage but I totally missed it when I placed my order.

you know what i've never tried this brand because i read that they have a long TAT but i just might rethink it!

Ida said...

nic nic, will try to post pics soon of me wearing them :)

crystal, when i saw the TAT displayed on their site, i was like WHOA that's such a long time, but my order's TAT was 8 days. maybe it also depends on how large the order is :)
