Hi everyone! Today I want to show you swatches of the Canmake Nudy Glow in 01 Rose Macaron which is the the most wearable/flattering shade for my skin tone. I also have the Canmake Lip Essence in 00 which serves as a nice lip base before I use the Nudy Glow or any other lippie I'm in the mood for. :)
(description from Canmake) 01 Rose Macaroon: A pinkish beige that gives your lips a gentle rose-pink color. Creates a gorgeous countenance that will make your skin look one tone brighter. Contains silver pearl
Nudy Glow comes with a brush applicator. I think it would have been better if it came with a flat paddle fuzzy applicator like Maquillage lip glosses, that would definitely save ladies some time in applying the pigmented gloss. :)
Lip Essence comes with a doe foot applicator.
now on to the swatches:
top, Lip Essence in 00
bottom, Nudy GLow in 01 Rose Macaron
As you can see, the Lip Essence is translucent with tiny specks of gold shimmer which gives my lips an iridescent glow which is very nice. It gives moderate moisture to my lips and does not cause annoying white film build up which is gross. XD One application is good for 4-5 hours depending on your "lip activity". I meant eating and drinking from a cup you naughty minded folks! :P
The Nudy Glow in 01 Rose Macaron is a beautiful nude creamy pink, it definitely, instantly makes lips looks plump and juicy, plus it contains moisturizing essence to keep lips looking smooth. However, this gloss tends to emphasize lip lines so blotting is essential to ensure a polished look. It is more comfortable to wear than say MAC Lipglass which I find sticky.
A lot of ladies asked me where I got the Canmake stuff on my HK Haul, you can find Canmake (and DollyWink) at Citysuper. If you want a price list you can check their HK site: http://www.hkcanmake.com/ ^_^
Ahhh.. I think I'm halfway through with my HK Haul reviews. Im looking forward to finishing them real soon!
ps. It's storm season here in the Philippines now. Please bring your rain gear people! We must not get sick! ;)
