Fyrinnae Haul. Vol. 2. Lip lustres swatches.

Here is my 2nd haul from Fyrinnae. Check my first haul and swatches if you haven't already. WARNING! This is going to be a picture-heavy post with lip lustres swatches on my lips. Yep, you've heard that right! :) I managed to take pictures of my lips somehow. lol  I really hope I won't freak anyone out. :) And again, please bear in mind it is my first time "lip swatching". :)

Not pictured: Powder Primer (7 g for 5,5 USD) and Fluff sample (1,5 USD).


Ordered on 28.1 (Thursday), they sent me PayPal invoice on 30.1, I received my order on 15.2 (Monday). IMO it's quite fast! Check their website for more details on their shipping schedules. They're quite busy and it takes time to CREATE product not just pack.

I had some difficulties AGAIN when I tried to pay with PayPal. The payment just didn't "want" to go through. And they again "discounted a bit for the trouble". :)

My initial thoughts:

I'm in love with Powder Primer! It works really well! I already did a quick review in my previous post (check the link above).

Have yet to try Fluff.

I ordered two matte eyeshadows this time and got one semi-matte/semi-shimmer eyeshadow for free. I really like these colours (can you call black a colour? lol). If you read my last post (link above) you might recall that I "complained" about my fail in blending Fyrinnae eyeshadows. Any help and tips are warmly welcome! I don't have this kind of problem with other brands. Strange. I must be some kind of a "blending nerd". lol 

The time has come! Lustres! OMG! These are awesome! How many times have you heard that? :) 2,5 USD (sample size - cute little tube with doe-foot applicator) for THIS amazing product? How freaking cool is that? I got 4. The quality is really impressive! Can you tell I'm excited? :) I love the scents (quite rare thing for me!) and the feel of these lipsticks-lip glosses "hybrids", they glide so smoothly and feel so nice on the lips! The most interesting thing is that they feel a little bit differently depending on their finish. Deceptive Innocence feels very creamy, whereas Romantique feels kind of "metallic" (sounds weird, but I just can't find the words to express this feeling), Flavor Of They Day feels very soft and moisturising (pretty much like a lip gloss) and Lickable feels somewhat in between Romantique and Flavor Of The Day. Did you understand my point? lol 

I'm absolutely in love with Lickable and Flavor Of The Day! The best thing - they look very much like my two absolutely favourite shades. I'll show you in a minute. I did a comparison pictures for you. :) Romantique is too frosty and pale for me... It's a beautiful colour though. Deceptive Innocence is also a bit too pale, it kind of washes me out. But! I found a perfect pair for it! I pair it with Everyday Minerals lip "balm" in "Icing on the cake" (I got it for free with my last order, have to make a post about it), which has the worst ever lipstick "scent", but very beautiful and flattering shade. Together with Deceptive Innocence they make a perfect couple! "Goodbye" to that yucky plastic scent , "Hello" sweet coconut. lol

I just want to point out that all these colours look a little bit more pigmented&opaque IRL. My camera washes them out for some reason (makes them "see through"?). The above "tube pictures" look more realistic.

Let's get started! :)

Your L: Dior Addict Ultra Gloss Reflect in shade 347 Orange Raffia (my all time favourite lip gloss!)
Your R: Flavor Of The Day
Verdict: Dior is more orangey and more sparkly, but these two still look pretty much alike.

Note: Have no idea what's that scary deep scar-looking thing on my lip (on your left). Hmm... :/ Probably some "mimic wrinkle" (could there be any on the lips?). lol
 

THE END! :)

Have you tried Fyrinnae primers? What about lip lustres? Any favourites? :)

PS Waiting for PayPal invoice again! ;)

  2. Here's another convert! :D Ahhh Fyrinnae. They're the only company right now that are making my no-buy a bit painful.

    I LOVE Flavor of the Day, it's perfect for me. Pixie Epoxy is amazing as well, it's great for glittery eyeshadow.

  5. Fyrinnae is my demise. Sweet, sweet demise. Lip Lustres are among my favourite lip products. And the eyeshadows... perfection.
