Aoibhell, which is sometimes anglicized to Aivell, is a complex mythological creature - possibly originally a territorial Goddess, she became a Queen of Banshees for Munster, Ireland and eventually a guardian spirit for the O'Brien family. She is said to be able to tell fortunes and carries a magical harp whose music is an omen of death. She is also a spirit of protection and love. This tinted balm is a soft violet shade that sheers out to a cool lavender-pink.

Love this, it's very light but also easily buildable if you want a stronger colour. I can get it to be a much darker purple than in the photo.
The site also mentions that they're not meant to be long lasting but I find that they do last a couple of hours before fading.
I will definitely buy this again/try some more shades.
