Lyra is a light-medium, yellow gold with warm undertones and flecks of pink and gold pearl. It shifted from a warmer yellow to a warmer pink noticeably on the skin. The texture was slightly looser in the pan, which resulted in some powderiness in the pan but did not translate on the skin. It was richly pigmented, and the color blended out nicely on the skin and did not emphasize my skin's natural texture. On me, it wore well for eight and a half hours before fading.
