Even so, I did a little haul of their lipsticks (there are only three in the range, Vanilla Beige, Ramune Pink and Pink Lemonade.). I missed out Pink Lemonade…
Here is the kind of look you get with this brand/lipstick:
The lipstick comes in plastic packaging with a stripy sweet shop type look.
Now – god knows I have the biggest collection of nude lipsticks (I am actually now starting to favour softer rose – mauve type shades) but I thought these were interesting because they are SO nude:
When does a lipstick turn into a lip concealer or basically a concealer stick!?….
Like I said earlier, the packaging for this range looks nice but feel cheap. The same applies for these lipsticks – it’s not ugly, but not up to the usual Japanese attractiveness.
I sort of knew what I was getting when I ordered these; I knew they would be extremely nude and most likely quite hard to wear without looking deathly. So no complaining about that!
I was worried about them being dry – they look like they could be and nude lipstick on dry lips is horrible, makes them look extra flaky.
Vanilla Beige is a very light honey yellow.
Ramune (I think it should be called Ramone) pink is a very light pale soft pink.
These are much nicer textured than I expected. They are soft and glossy with a good level of pigmentation and didn’t feel dry despite their opacity.
Having said that, if I had very dry lips I would avoid these until my lips were in better condition. I just don’t think nude lips + dry flakes mix well.
I found it a bit hard to get lip swatches of them though – I think because I have a medium skintone, the lip stick shades sort of fade into my skin colour a little so I have taken pictures from a greater distance so you can get an idea of what it looks like.
Really light, almost like lip concealer but with a nicer, glossier texture.
It has a bit of a Kim Kardashian look to it, this pink?
Actually, these are great nude lipsticks but they are UBER nude and quite unforgiving. I wouldn’t slap these on every day necessarily but I would use it when I’m wearing a stronger eye. The colours are totally in keeping with the Candydoll brand and look though!
I paid retail price for these (About £9 each I think).
Do you like nude lips?
