A while back I did a review of some CANMAKE products c/o Pretty-fab.com, one of which was the Whip Mousse Lip. I said I'd talk more about the product in detail in a separate entry, the reason being I wanted to do a comparison with another CANMAKE lip product, the Candy Wrap Lip (*˘︶˘*)
The Whip Mousse Lip is one of those products that I wouldn't have gone out and bought on my own accord, but ended up liking a lot after trying it once. The reason why I overlooked it is because I'm not a fan of matte lip products. Matte lips are a lot of work, especially for someone like me who doesn't like touching up every few minutes. That's why even though I have a bunch of matte lipsticks lying around, I've only ever used them once or twice. The Whip Mousse Lip goes on nicely, and with the wand applicator I don't make a mess while applying (like I do with most lipsticks). It lasts quite a while, but I still have to touch up after a few hours, or after I eat or drink. And as I mentioned previously, my issue with it is that it tends to set into fine lines after application. So what I do is apply a little bit and then blend it out with my finger. Exfoliating your lips beforehand + wearing lip balm underneath also makes a huge difference. This color (Raspberry Red) is so cute and natural on the cheeks, too. I like this so much that I might pick it up 02 Honey Orange in the future as well!
As for the Candy Wrap Lip, I got it as a gift from CANMAKE a looong time ago (as you can probably tell from the first photo, I've used up quite a bit of it already), when they were still in the process of getting ready to set up local stores. Until now it's still the one lip gloss that I own. I've tried a bunch of other glosses, but I always ended up giving them away since I could never get over the sticky feeling that glosses have. Long hair + wind + sticky lip gloss = disaster. I've never had that problem with the Candy Wrap Lip, which is why it's the only gloss that I like. One more thing that I like about it is that it makes my lips look fuller. I use it after my usual lip tint + lip balm routine and it makes my lips look so pretty. I actually used this on Leny for one of our previous shoots and a lot of people kept commenting about how pretty her lips looked, haha. And at just P390, it's very affordable. Will definitely repurchase once I finish this tube!
Have you tried any of these products before? If you have, how did you like it? Let me know what you think! (*˘ ³˘*).｡.:*♡
