Fyrinnae Winter Romance Lip Lustre
Fyrinnae Winter Romance Lip Lustre

Fyrinnae Winter Romance Lip Lustre ($7.00 for 0.27 fl. oz.) is described as a “rich, velvety dark red.” It’s a medium-dark red with subtle, warm undertones, and a soft shine. Tom Ford Beauty Rouge Fatal (LE, $49.00) is a touch brighter and warmer. Marc Jacobs Beauty Showstopper (134) (P, $30.00) is also a bit warmer, slightly brighter.MAC Night to Remember (LE, $15.00) is lighter. Givenchy Grenat Initie (307) (P, $36.00) is a smidgen brighter. NARS Majella (P, $25.00) is more matte. Guerlain Luxure (P, $49.50) is slightly darker. See comparison swatches.

The Lip Lustre formula is supposed to be “non-sticky lipcolour, nearly as solid as a lipstick, leaving rich colour on your lips but no goopy tackiness.” They come in lipgloss tubes, but they’re more like a liquid lipstick than a gloss. They can also be purchased as in a trial size (1.5ml vs. 8ml) for $2.00, which, honestly, is plenty of product given how pigmented the shades can be! Winter Romance had mostly opaque color, but there was an all-over translucency that enabled some of the natural color to peek through. It applied evenly, and the color looked smooth on the lips. The consistency is lightweight, lightly creamy, and comfortable to wear. This shade wore well for six hours and left behind a stain that continued going for another two hours. However, after four hours of wear, it started to settle into lip lines somewhat. It was neither drying nor hydrating when worn. I didn’t notice any scent or taste.

    How does this compare to Mac’s Dare You?

  2. Love the way you look in the last photo, Christine! Simple but eye-catching. :) If you don’t mind, what blush did you use on your right cheek?

  3. Kate

    This looks great on you Christine! I just got my mini one delivered today along with some of the Winter 2013 loose shadows and blush, all gorgeous swatched, looking forward to playing with them. Loving the lip lustre, sooo pigmented.

    hi Christine! thank you for the review! you are looking amazing as always. Could you tell me what blush are you wearing please? thank you:)

  6. Oh, that’s a gorgeous shade! I love the lip lustre formula.

  7. Veronica

    Oh yay, you reviewed it! I added this to my Fyrinnae wish list after seeing it pop up as part of the new winter collection. :) Glad to see it’s a potential dupe for MJ’s Showstopper – I was mulling over that one, so this will be a cheaper alternative.

  8. I love red lips on you! Your lips look perfect in red! The formula sounds really nice and for just $2 a sample I’m all over it lol. Time to check out the color selection!

    Hi, I’m not familiar with this company. Are they online only? Any favorites?

  10. It reminds me of a liquid lipstick from Lush that I have. I like that one a lot, and I have a feeling I’d like this one as well :-) No need to put more dupes in my stash though…

  11. Barbie

    oh that’s so pretty on you! i love their lip lustre formula! i love 1952 and visual kei

  12. I’m not the biggest fan of liquid lipstick (except OCC lip tars) but that looks pretty on you!

  13. I love Fyrinnae’s Lip Lustre formula. I have at least four of them in full size, more samples, and will probably purchase this one based on how warm it leans, I wasnt sure so I am glad I can see a picture.

    I love the blush Nordic Angel on you! What would you say is a dupe for this color? I really want it and am not sure if I need it.

  14. Sara

    I must get this! I absolutely LOVE that Fyrinnae does trial sizes! I have so much makeup that I rarely go through whole tubes or jars of anything, so being able to shell out $2 each for trial sizes is amazing. I just put this and the Meloncholy lip lustres in my cart, along with a trial Pixie Epoxy and the Nordic Blush. I’m waiting to see your review for the blush though. Is it a loose powder or pressed?

  15. I think this is a beautiful red on you. I love the lip lustres :)

  16. I love the Lip Lustre formula, but unfortunately it seems my favorite shade was discontinued (Sweetest Poison). Such a shame but I love their reds so I am definitely getting this and the blush you’re wearing from them. Enchant is one of my favorite blushes of all time!

  17. Brenda

    Oh I love this!! This is the kind of colour I have been lusting for lately.

    Christine, how might this compare to MAC Apres Chic lipstick?? Darker, browner, but maybe the same vein? That’s one colour I’m kicking myself for missing out on..

  18. Wow this looks amazing! I expected this to be much more sheer.

  19. You look gorgeous Christine! This lip lustre looks fantastic on you and suits you perfectly

  20. Courtney K

    I really hope their formula has improved. I love their colors, but they would bleed.

  21. I will have to check these out! How inexpensive for such a good product! After Christmas, I’m going to buy SO MANY THINGS from Fyrinnae.
