For this week’s Makeup Wars posts, we’ve decided to highlight the lippie we’ve been reaching for over and over this summer. I’m going to cheat and feature 2 lippies, I really couldn’t pick!
What I’ve pictured here are 2 Lip Lustres from Fyrinnae, and while I had initially purchased the $2 samples just to try out the color (that is what you see here), I’ve since purchased the full sized versions. I’ve been grabbing these two colors almost every day since I got them, which is about 3 weeks or so. They are definitely worth the $6, and I want Fyrinnae to make a huge range of more wearable colors. I want a few more like pinks and peaches, a couple of different reds and since it is so “in” for fall, we’ll need about 5 dark vampy lip shades to pick from ranging from red to burgundy to a deep plum. Please and thank you.
This formula is unlike any lippie I’ve ever used. It’s pretty much exactly what I had hoped that YSL stain glossy thing was going to be… but wasn’t. Lip Lustre is like you took a lipstick, stuck it in a blender and whipped it around a bunch. It’s like a fluffy, airy lipstick. Not really a gloss, but also not really a liquid lipstick either. It is not at all sticky, it’s super pigmented, and it takes about 3 hours to wear off. When it does, it is pretty hard to notice because it really acts as a stain as well, so you’ll have at least some color all day long.
I initially purchased the sample sizes of Lollipop-Pop and Visual Kei, when I bought full sizes I bought both of these, Dragon’s Blood and Less than Three. It is a little hard to tell the two apart in the swatch pic, but when worn the Lollipop-Pop is a brighter and lighter pink while there’s a bit of darker magenta/red added to the Visual Kei.
Suddenly that super bright summer lippie has been so much easier!
