Since I just received my Fyrinnae Lip Lustres in Isis and Nemesis I received a flood of tweets and emails asking to swatch immediately. I did send a teaser image on my Instagram.

About this unique product:
Fyrinnae’s Lip Lustres are not like lipgloss. This product is a non-sticky lipcolour, leaving moisturising colour on your lips but no goopy tackiness. Most shades are made to be relatively opaque, though some can be applied lightly over lipstick as a highlight or over balm as a sheer tint. They are a rather “dry” product because we pack as much colour into them as possible, but the ingredients are not drying. This means, due to the high concentration of natural butters, they are thinner in a warm environment, thicker when it’s cool. Use care when opening if they have been cold (i.e; in a mailbox in winter). They are filled hot, then the product cools, hardening, the moment the tubes are filled, so they may have the appearance of cracks or tiny lines of air. Lustres have a light vanilla scent.

The above swatches were taken under my daylight bulb with no flash. It’s pouring rain here today. I actually love it.

I applied a sheer layer of Nemesis on my lips in the above swatches.

Nemesis – rich medium purple, semi-opaque.

This really can be built up. I’m reminded of Fyrinnae Cuddlefish, only on my lips! My natural lipcolor peeks through. It would look awesome if applied solidly with my hair color, too.

I applied a sheer layer of Isis on my lips in the above swatches.

Isis – Isis is a true metallic gold. Not a weak, sheer, or bronzey-shade, this colour is fairly opaque (which of course depends on application, and can be worn semi-sheer or layered over other products) and gives a pure metallic gold finish.

Both colors are gorgeous.

I am obsessed with golds, both in lipsticks, blushes, nail polish and eye shadow. I’m so happy to have Isis! It really gives a gilded effect when applied sheerly.

What do you think of Fyrinnae Isis and Nemesis? I, of course, adore them and recommend them if you like the lip lustres, as they’re quite a unique formula.


Isis purchased by me. Nemesis was a gift. All opinions are my own.
