Darling Girl Holly Jolly Holo Gloss Swatch & Comparison

As few of you guys know, a little while ago I was sort of part of this collaboration between Darling Girl Cosmetics and a few other bloggers. We talked on Twitter about having glosses named after us and out came this mini collection of Blogger Glosses. 

Mine was named Mai (so narcissistic but I suppose I never claimed to not be) and was partially inspired by another gloss that Darling Girl carries, Holly Jolly. The two are so similar that I figured I could show how different it actually is.

First off, here's Holly Jolly.

Now here's a swatch of both glosses, this really shows off the difference.

Darling Girl Cosmetics Holly Jolly vs Mai Holo Gloss

Holly Jolly is described as a "Deep blue based red with gold and green flakie" and Mai is described as a "Cherry red with golden green flakie". Both have that gorgeous flakie sparkle but you can see that Holly Jolly is much bluer whereas Mai errs more orange based.

and a split lip picture of both glosses.

The difference is so subtle that I think you don't need to own both (though I'd love for you to own my namesake gloss!). If you find yourself favoring blue based reds, Holly Jolly is for you and if you favor orangey red and helping stroke to fuel ego, get Mai gloss!

Do you own either Holly Jolly or Mai?

    1. They really are. Even though I do like my gloss (I have to of course), I think Holly Jolly's blue tones are so nice

  2. I've been wanting to get Mai and McSwatchy for a while now :) Your lip swatch makes them look almost the same, but I think I'd choose Mai. It's quite festive haha
