I was totally giddy to get my hands on the new releases of Canmake Candy Wrap Lip, especially when in pictures 07 Hot Marmalade looks very much like a yellow based red versus the blue based red that is 04 Strawberry Lady. I was so excited I didn't even play with the tester, wanting to reserve the element of surprise when I get home. Totally dorky, I know :P
Canmake Candy Wrap Lips in 07 Hot Marmalade and 08 Pomegranate Jam
Unlike the previous Candy Wrap Lips with fuzzy doe foots, these new ones come with fuzzy spatulas that are flat on both sides, making application much easier and faster by delivering more products. It was worth the wait (and the suspense) after all. I can safely say that I'm in love with these 2 new releases. I appreciate it very much that neither has any shimmers, but I have to say it's the color, both of them, that swept me off my feet.
- 07 Hot Marmalade: I thought this would be a yellow based red, but it exceeded my expectation and turned out to be a yellow based orange (sounds totally redundant I know)! Yep, orange, a translucent, bright and fiery orange with no shimmers. If Maybelline ColorSensation Lip Gloss 945 Salsa Sun has an exotic (I actually hate using this word, but this time it's rather appropriate) and sizzling hot younger sister, this would be her. And boy am I in love, because she applies true to the color on my lips! Wahoo! I have to say, this is the first time I've seen such unabashed orange on me and I love, love, love it, not in the least because the orange really brightens by teeth and makes them look super white ^.^ An added bonus for me, though perhaps a minus for others, is that because the color is translucent, it's buildable on my lips and I can sheer it out if it's too screaming orange. I wore 2 layers the first time and upon seeing me, hubby said, "Your lips are too orange." Exactly. LOL! If you are a fan of orange, I totally recommend giving this a shot!
- 08 Pomegranate Jam: this one I was wary of at first. It's a milky reddish coral with pink undertone and no shimmers. It applies with less opacity than it looks, and I thought it the color would be too loud on me but it turned out to be very, no, make that extremely flattering. It brightens up my whole face and gives me a pinkish glow. Just amazing! Excellent job with these two releases, Canmake. I salute you.
Worshipping that orange yet? I am ^.^
