If you are feeling low-key spring goth like me then you need some creepy makeup to go with it, right?
I’ve been wanting to try Fyrinnae’s products for a while now, they are an independent brand and vegan/cruelty free. I purchased three of the Lip Lustres which are kind of in between a lipstick and a gloss. The one I am wearing today is “Ghostly Voice" and I like it a lot, more than I was expecting so I kind of wish I had purchased the full tube instead of just the sample size. The picture of the swatch is truly what it looks like in person, but then when put on the lips it changes color depending on the angle and the light. It has a mixture of grey, purple, green, even a little bronze and bluish at certain angles. Like the description says, it acheives all these weird colors without washing you out or making you look "dead." In these pictures it looks purple but it that’s just because the picture is shitty quality. In person it’s more of a purplish-gray but up close it’s much more complex. It’s confusing and that’s why I like it.
I also purchased the colors “Queer Theory” (mostly for the name) and “Ultra Phantom.” Ultra Phantom is a beautiful sheer and sparkly baby blue. By itself is nice and it looks great over light pink or beige lip stick. On the website it says Queer Theory is a warm pink but too be honest I don’t see much pink in it at all. At best it’s like, an off-red if that makes sense? The color in person just doesn’t match the color on the website to me. But still a very nice color, I wore it the other day and got a lot of compliments. Also has the most staying power out of the three. Ghostly Voice and Ultra Phantom can be a tad drying throughout the day so definitely hydrate your lips beforehand.
(Another quick note, these products do contain dyes, so if you’re shopping for makeup more on the natural/chemical-free side these probably won’t meet your criteria)
I do like all these products though, if not just for the really unique colors, so I’ll definitely be buying more.
Other makeup details:
eye shadow colors from the ELF 144 Piece Palette in “Bright”
mascara is Beauty Without Cruelty’s Full Volume Mascara in Coco that I got in a past Petit Vour box
my foundation is some old ELF foundation I wanted to use up that doesn’t even properly match my skin and it also kind of sucks so I really can’t be bothered to link it
