A wee little Fyrinnae order popped onto my doormat yesterday (kicking the arse of their own TAT by arriving around 11 days after I ordered!)
L-R: Superstar, Orangutan, , Sequinned Master, Futuristic Glamrock, Knickers in a Twist
Well, well, well! I don’t order from Fyrinnae too often, but every time I do, I wonder why I don’t!
Superstar is an amazing bright pink with a very subtle blue highlight. It’s not super shimmery, but I wouldn’t say it was a satin either. Orangutan is BEAUTIFUL. It’s described as “pale soft copper (or dusky peach),” and I’d say that’s pretty spot on, although it looks more coppery to my eyes than the website swatch. Sequinned Master (Arcane Magic) is a light grape-purple with pink and blue sparks. When you get it. When light hits it directly, it looks more pink. Really interesting and pretty shade. Futuristic Glamrock (Arcane Magic) was my free sample! It’s a cool, bright icy blue with tons of pink sparks which show when the light hits – can’t wait to pair it with Sequinned Master. Knickers in a Twist is a dark grey-taupe with a coppery/bronze shimmer. I can tell already this is going to make it’s way into my regular routine.
This looks MUCH brighter in real life, I promise – see below for a more colour accurate swatch. It’s a beautiful, beautiful colour. I wouldn’t say it’s fully opaque, but it’s less of a sheer-feeling formula than some other Fyrinnae Lip Lustres are and certainly has enough coverage to wear it alone. It’s very metallic and very awesome, and I think I’ll be purchasing a full size!
One, awesome name. I love a narwhal. Two, it’s gorgeous. A touch more turquoise than straight blue like my swatch shoes, but it’s got pretty good opacity – I think it looks really unattractive when your natural lip colour shows through blue and green lip products. Really, really awesome colour. I used to buy my blues from a now defunct indie company so to get an awesome one from Fyrinnae makes me very, very happy.
Again with the cute names! This is a sheerer, cooler mint colour. Saying that I don’t like any lip colour showing through blue/green colours, this actually looks lovely! I’m really interested in layering this over purples – I’m thinking Illamasqua Kontrol or Wet N Wild Ravin’ Raisin would look really awesome.
Just a more colour accurate swatch for you there, but mostly, LOOK HOW TINY THEY ARE. OH MY CHRIST SO TINY. I love, love, love these tiny little vials. They are a little difficult to apply colour with – which is clearly stated on the site - but for $2 you really can catch them all! I’ve taken to rolling the colour from the doefoot on to the back of my hand, and then picking it up on the tip and applying again. Taking a tweezer to the seal on the bottle and pulling it out might also help you pick up more colour. Pictured in the background there is the awesome shiny paper that everything was packaged in!
And now for a LOTD, and then I’ll shut up!
