Holika Holika Heart Ful Moisture Lipstick CR301 review
After seeing the beautiful promotional picture of Krystal wearing the Etude House Etoinette Crystal Shine Lips lipstick, PBE001, I was really thinking of buying this lipstick. But then, I remembered that I already own a similar orange/coral lipstick and I never really use it. I bought the Holika Holika Heart Ful Moisture Lipstick CR301 - Sweet coral in my 4th order from Gmarket. Because of my series of Valentine's day posts, I took it out to swatch. The Heart Ful Moisture Lipstick has a cute heart-shaped bullet. This shape is carved into the whole lipstick, so it will still look like a heart even after many uses. The lipstick casing is shorter than normal lipsticks, but the length of the lipstick bullet and the content seems to be similar to full-sized lipsticks (3.8 g).

Swatches of the Holika Holika Heart Ful Moisture Lipstick CR301 - Sweet CoralI first swatched the Heart Ful Moisture Lipstick on my arm and you can clearly see that the color is a glossy orange. After I put the lipstick on my lips, I remembered why I did not use it that often. At first, the lipstick has a very neon orange color and the lipstick seems to be floating on top of your lips and not sinking in. After taking pictures for a while, I noticed that the color turned a bit more natural. The color is bright enough to cover my natural lip color with just one layer and due to its buttery consistency, it needs a bit of time for it to "melt". I still think that the neon orange tint in the color is a bit hard to get used to, but the color does look better after waiting for a while. I never waited before, because I was always in a rush getting out the door. So after being shocked by the bright neon orange color, I would always quickly remove it and use another color. That's why I only used it a few times. :) By swatching this lipstick, I have rediscovered it. I might use it more often, although it has a lot of competition. ^_^
