Just like the YSL Lip Oil, these Bloody Tint Oils from Holika Holika are a new type of product that colours your lips while keeping them well moisturised.



(Left to right: Bloody Vampire, Bloody Berry & Bloody Orange)

There are five different shades available and I picked up 3 from Jolse's online store, as they had a 2+1 offer (buy 2 get 1 free). These were mentioned in my most recent Korean & Western Beauty Haul (click here to watch it if you haven't already). I've heard that they're very similar to the YSL Lip Oils, but I personally haven't tried the ones from YSL yet, so I cannot compare. Prior to using these, you need to give them a good shake to combine the two liquids together. Otherwise, you'll only have oil and a small amount of colour on the doe foot applicator (which btw, is very cushiony and useful). 

Bloody Vampire is a dark red shade with a hint of brown and no matter how much I shake it, the oil and tint won't seem to mix properly and that bugs me a lot. However, the tint still works properly. Bloody Berry is a pretty vibrant pink and it's my most favourite shade out of the three (click here to see a swatch of it on my lips). On the other hand, Bloody Orange is a bright orange (well, duh) but I don't think it suits my skin tone so I haven't worn it out yet.

These lip tints have many pros and cons. First of all, they're very easy to apply but they do tend to run through the lines of your lips and 'bleed' because of the super runny oily consistency. However, you can simply swipe it away with your finger/tissue before it sets. Secondly, you have to wait a little while for the tint to dry, but once it's set it doesn't leave a layer of oil on your lips and it makes your lips feel really moisturised. The product transfers the first couple of times especially if your lips touch something wet (like when you drink water), but it doesn't transfer after you give your lips a gentle wipe/pat with a tissue. The Bloody Tint Oils are extremely pigmented and they smell really nice too (the scent fades after a little while though, so don't worry too much if you dislike scented things).

The biggest problem I have with this tint is the bitter taste! The first time I licked my lips after snacking, I was disgusted. Bleh. The taste seems to stay for a very long time as well and I hate it so much ... but I've kind of learnt to not lick my lips when I have the tint on. Another problem is that removing the lip tint is a huge nuisance (I guess it's an advantage & a disadvantage). The first time I wore the Bloody Berry shade, it lasted for about 3 and a half hours before it started to come off. It became patchy on the inner parts of my lips, which was not a pretty sight. However after wearing it a couple more times, it seemed to be okay...?

So I guess I have a love/hate relationship with these lip tints. Since it's spring time now, I don't think I will wear the Bloody Vampire shade much. I'm still not quite sure about Bloody Orange, I'll have to try wearing it differently I suppose. 

Have you guys tried any lip oils before? If so, do you like/dislike them?

If I could, I would purchase every single eyeshadow from the Aritaum Mono Eyes collection (there are over 90 shades!) They have a huge range of beautiful colours and a variety of textures.

The packaging is very similar to the eyeshadows from M.A.C, but not as strong. 
From left to right:
#42 Parrot Kit (orangey brown with silver glitter)
#47 Steal Away (mauve with rose gold glitter)
#49 Cinematic (deep lavender with silver glitter)

Steal Away is my most favourite shade because I'm a sucker for eyeshadows that have a hint of rose gold. The colour looks a bit more 'natural' on the lids, but the glitter makes the eyes pop (does that even make sense?)

I purchased these from Jolse during a 2+1 offer (basically the same as buy 2 get 1 free). These eyeshadows have a pressed glitter pearl finish - they are so glittery it can get a bit messy if you're not careful enough. As you can see, these shades aren't very opaque. They're not as pigmented as the ones with a satin pearl finish and I think it's best to apply these glitter shadows on top of a base colour, preferably by patting them on. I've only applied these with my fingers and it works well, probably even better than using a brush because I expect there would be fallouts.

I've worn Steal Away and Cinematic together without an eyeshadow base and it was a quite nice look (Steal Away all over the lid and Cinematic in the crease). It's subtle but at the same time not really because the colours aren't very strong but the glitter particles make your eyes sparkle prettily. Actually, I wore them in my most recent FOTD.

Have you tried any eyeshadows from Aritaum before? I also quite like the Shine Fix Eyes collection!
*Throws confetti* I'm finally on Easter break!

SPRING IS HEREEE! For the first time this year, I was able to go out wearing sunglasses. I got some new shades from Monki and I love the look of them, but they keep sliding down my somewhat flat face (and this is when I get sad for having a small Asian nose). Photos of them will appear at a later date.

For now, here are some images of today's makeup look:

Brows: Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette [Faint]
Face: Maybelline The Eraser Eye Concealer [Light]
Eyeshadows: Aritaum Mono Eyes [#47 & #49]
Eyelashes: KIKO Sportproof Mascara
Eyeliner: CLIO Waterproof Pen Liner [Kill Black]
Lips: Holika Holika Bloody Oil Tint [Bloody Berry]

I actually had very minimal makeup when I went to my lecture this morning (filled in the brows, lined the eyes & concealed the dark circles) but I'm going out for some drinks tonight and decided this is how I want my makeup. I don't want to wear too much, but at the same time I want my eyes to pop with some glittery lids.

I've been trying out different techniques and most of the products I used are new to my collection. Keep your eyes peeled for a huge collective beauty haul video and some reviews.

What are your plans for the Easter?
