At Long Last - A Perfect Corally Nude!

You know that feeling when a product is just PERFECT - no coping, no emptying-the-bank pains, no extra hassle? It's not often I know, but once in a while these products come by, and for me today it was the CANMAKE Creamy Touch Rouge in Misty Orange 02.


You may know that my lips are ridiculously pigmented, and if I use any lippy that is even slightly sheer, the colour on my lips is nothing like what it is in tube or on my hand. On top of that, many orange or coral lipsticks make me look very ashy. So when I see the popular 'orange lip' look in Japan, or the 'coral lip' look in the UK, I get very, very jealous..

But not anymore! This CANMAKE lipstick is everything I wanted from a nude coral/orange lip, as well as from a lipstick in general (can you sense a purchase-in-another-shade coming up? :P I can!). What's more is that it only cost me 700yen which is about a fiver!


As you can see, the packaging is SO sleek - I think it may be my favourite lipstick packaging yet. It's golden with a hint of rose. It's simple, smooth, and it clicks like a dream. And best of all, it doesn't attract finger prints at all! Didn't even know that was possible..

The formula.. ohhhh the formula! It's so creamy, pigmented and moisturising, and if that wasn't enough, it's very long-lasting as well.


Literally, my perfect coral nude I've been searching for! Rimmel Nude Delight might have a friend now!

This is all thanks to my new YouTube discovery HaruxNyan, who is a Japanese beauty vlogger with a serious sense of humour and make-up style. She mentioned this lippy in a haul and said how pretty it was, and I thought I'd give it a shot, thinking maybe coral/orange lipsticks in Japan would work better on me because of my colouring being similar to most of the population. I was right! I've also bought something else from her suggestion which I will hopefully show in my Japan haul once I'm back in the UK :)

So yes - I am SUCH a happy bunny after finding THE lipstick that I've been looking for for well over a year. On the car ride to the airport this evening (dropping off my dad! :( ), I was literally staring at myself in the rearview mirror for what can only be over the socially acceptable amount. It's just so nice to feel like I can finally look the way I want and do the whole warm, summer coral/orange look! :)

Anyone have similar stories? :)
What's your favourite coral/orange lippy?

I did a quick search and by the looks of things, for those of you who can't purchase CANMAKE in stores, there are two sellers on eBay, here and here who stock these lipsticks. I don't know how legitimate they are but I thought I'd share and leave it up to you if you are interested in purchasing these :)

  1. Uhhh this is SO pretty on you! My favorite coral is Guerlain Nahema! I've been on such a coral kick recently. Were it not for the fact that I want to test some blushes I own out in a much warmer/more humid climate, I'd probably pair my coral blushes with this every day :)

    1. It's quite big in Japan and I think in Thailand and Hong Kong but otherwise it seems to be quite non-existent! It's a shame cuz it's an amazing brand - if you can get your hands on their stuff I highly recommend it :)

  5. This is so pretty! I have an Asian skintone and I think these sort of colours are so flattering. I have a similar lipstick by Wet n Wild called Just Peachy but it's a bit more drying than this one. xx

  19. Great colour <3 After you posted this I went and checked it out! It is a really pretty colour, in fact they had some nice nudes too in the same range. What surprised me most is there was no glitter in the lipstick! Japan is so bad for putting glitter in all cosmetics, I was surprised.
