Fyrinnae Sexy Nerd Lip Lustre ($7.00 for 0.27 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright magenta with gold shimmer and highlight.” It’s a vibrant, medium-dark fuchsia pink with gold shimmer. The layer of gold shimmer seems to be a more defining characteristic of this shade, as it made it harder to dupe. Kat Von D Lullabye (P, $21.00) is more matte, no gold shimmer. Revlon Adorned (P, $7.49) is a gloss, redder, less shimmery. MAC Pink Poodle (DC, $16.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler-toned. MAC Midnight Mambo (LE, $22.00) is cooler-toned. Milani Flashy (DC, $6.49) is less golden. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Yaoi (P, $18.00) is lighter, brighter, lacks the gold shimmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Lip Lustres are supposed to be “non-sticky lipcolour, nearly as solid as lipstick, leaving rich colour on your lips but no goopy tackiness.” It had intense color payoff that yielded full color coverage. The color went on evenly and smoothly for a forgiving finish that was lightly shiny but not glossy (indeed, more like a liquid lipstick). The consistency is more liquid-like, but it isn’t runny as it has a denser, drier texture that is more comfortable applied than it seems initially, but it isn’t drying (nor hydrating). It also non-sticky as described. On me, the color lasted for five and a half hours before fading, and it left behind a slight stain. There was no discernible taste or smell.

Just some closer friends and stories, but it’s nothing I have experienced first hand – it’s just enough to make me wary of doing anything at this time. I have a pretty horrendous track record with indies (even after waiting awhile) that seem great and everything’s fine for awhile, but a few months after I buy, there seems to be drama (it has happened five out of seven times, lol).

Would you mind sharing why? I understand if you’re not able to but I’ve been considering one of their palettes and I do really trust your input. Wondering if there’s an issue with the quality of the product or company that I should be looking out for, thanks Christine!

Looks beautiful, I like how noticeable the gold sheen is in the far away shot.
I’ve heard a lot of good things about this brand, the people who have tried them seem to love them a lot. Maybe its about time I tried them, too!

I really like lippies like this. As I get older, I’m gravitating more towards lipsticks or lipsticks with more color than shine. This seems like what I’m looking for. Where can I purchase?

This is so pretty! I definitely don’t have anything like it, and at $7 how can I not put it on my wish list?! Thanks for reviewing this, Christine!

Very pretty! I think this color would make a great stocking-stuffer for my oldest daughter. I’ll have to visit the site to pick this up, along with more Pixie Epoxy. And… maybe check for new eyeshadow colors… because you can never have too much eyeshadow, right?? 😀

By the way, I stumbled upon your YouTube videos last night while looking for swatches and, even though I liked you before, I like you even more after watching the video! You’re professional yet friendly with a relaxed vibe, you enunciate well, your voice is quite pleasant to listen to, and you look great on camera!

That’s so coincidental! I just was bookmarking some you tube sites + watched a very young Christine, as well. She is an excellent presenter; you’re right! Being an SLP who did undergrad in Cal, I think I was expecting more of ‘that Cal sound.’ What surprised me, is that it’s Temptahlia, rather than Temptaylia. I stand corrected!

They say that just in case. I’ve been ordering from them for about five years now and it has never gone over 3-4 days for me to have mine shipped. And usually less!

They don’t last very long on me. They tend to dry out and leave a line on my inner bottom lip. But, I do still love a number of them. I just try to stay conscious of it and do mirror checks, reapply. I still really like them.
