Canmake Nudy Glow review

More Canmake xD
I got Nudy Glow lipgloss in 01 - Rose Macaroon, 02 - Strawberry Whip, and 04 - Sugar Milk Tea.

Swatches: from left 04; 02; and 01. Haha I have no idea why I've got it backwards xD

Natural lip colour:

Lip swatch: 01 Rose Macaroon

02 Strawberry Whip

04 - Sugar Milk Tea

Close up of the brush:

These glosses are really pigmented, semi-sticky, and have a creamy, glossy finish. Lasting time is a good 4-5 hours. The formula is thicker than that of your average glosses, which makes application just that much more tricky with the brush applicator. I hate brush applicators -__- they're so difficult to apply with precision and I inevitably end up with gloopey lips >__> ah well...
Other than the brush applicator, the other thing I dislike about this gloss is that it does tend to settle into my lip lines T.T
I think they come in 5/6 colours which are all in the nude pink/beige family, hence the name?lol xD my favourite colour is Rose Macaroon!
As always, I find a bit to complain about packaging wise; while the bottom half of the gloss is quite pretty, the lid feel really cheap >__>

I paid $11 or so, I believe they're like $5-6 in Japan. For those of you who live in Vancouver, Canmake is sold at Aberdeen Centre for highly jacked up prices xD

Other than deducting points for brush applicator and the formula, these glosses are pigmented, creamy and moisturising. They actually remind me a lot of MAC's Cremesheens which are twice the price with much less product. If you can get hold of them, you should really try them out as they are really superb glosses for the price!


  1. LOVE the dripping gloss drop on the last pic!!! you must have a really good camera :)

    i really want to pick up some of their cream blushes this summer when i return to motherland :P

  2. oohh i like the shade of rose macaroon but not a fan of glosses >< do they smell like their names?? cuz that would be pure yumminess esp sugar milk tea XD

  3. i love your high quality pics! i'm loving the pigmentation, maybe a lip primer would minimize the gloss settling in the lines?

  4. I like Rose Macaroon! Too bad I didn't see these swatches beforehand or else I would've gotten that one instead of Strawberry Whip. Eh... lol

    Thankies for the swatches and review!

  5. Thanks for the swatches! I sooo wanna try these, the names make them sound soo good too hehe. I like Strawberry Whip!

  6. I've been eyeing these long time ago... I love those shades <3

    p.s : my brush doesn't smell sooo bad when they in dry condition, but everytime i wash them, uh...they smell terrible

  7. These all look really pretty. Def something I'd wear


  8. hey hottieee omg everything at Aberdeen is jacked up in prices! Except Diaso where things are only $2 hahaha! I hear a small store's rent is like $2000 there I'm surprised how some of those stores make money! I like strawberry whip on you the most but they are all great

  9. oooh i love nude lip colors! :)
    nominated you for a blog award!

  10. Nice swatches~ clear and crisp photos, I like =)

  11. Another canmake HIT.

    I have to say that I like the brush applicator.
