Review: Canmake Whip Mousse Lip ホイップムースリップ + EOTD

Are you a lipgloss or lipstick girl?
I used to be a lipgloss girl but this year i am giving lipstick a fair go.
Finding the transition hard? Try these new items from Canmake! Its like a cross between the two!*
Canmake Whip Mousse Lip ホイップムースリップ
RRP: 580yen each [USD$7~]

* the texture is best described as one similar to urban decay’s udpp XD

Love the gold caps

According to Canmake [ie i ganked this from their site]
The 3 selling points of this item is
1.Stand out from the crowd with matte-look lips!!!
2.A versatile face color that you can use on your lips or your cheeks
3.Non-sticky with long-lasting high-color finish

[01]Raspberry Red
A matte red. I’m moving into reds this season and its hard to start off on a bright red lipstick. This matte red is perfect. Its red yet natural looking at the same time. Highly reccomended.

[02]Honey Orange
My favorite one! Though orange might sound a bit strange, it works wonderfully if you have reddish lips.
Its obvious enough to tell it is orange yet not weird like..omg is that orange lipstick?!*
*btw i have no issues with that sorta lipstick either XD look out for my upcoming review of a truly orange lipstick XD

[03]Misty Peach
Very easy color to wear. If you are not adventurous with lipstick colors, get this. This looks like it would suit almost everyone.

[04]Foggy Cherry [LIMITED EDITION]
I really like this too. Its LE so grab it when you see it. If you have naturally red lips and 01 makes them far too red, try this one!

– cheap!
– long lasting
– all wearable colors
– packaging is cute
– no weird scent

– though the product claims to have moisturisors etc in it, it can be a bit drying for some. [if u have chapped lips or dry lips, i highly recommend that you wear lipbalm underneath]
– slightly staining


Overall Thoughts
I highly recommend these! They are easy to wear and there is just something about its matte look. I feel that with it being matte, it doesnt matter how bright the colors are. It mutes the color in some way. It works really well with smoky or dark eyes esp if you dont want to be sporting a dark eyes/bright lips combo.

Many of you expressed interest in seeing more pics of me [i have no idea why since i cover most of my face XD] but here is the one i posted yesterday on instagram [follow me at yumeko55]
Circle lens [EOS Adult/Dolly Eye] came from [use code 10bittenbefore for a 10% discount on your purchase]
MAC pro palette is a custom palette gift from MsBonita [Thanks dearie!]
Lipgloss is by Illamasqua
Shading powder by ORBIS

Till next time!
XOXO Yumeko

    Woohoo Canmake got something right again ~~

    Thanks for reviewing these! Do you prefer them over the Nudy Glow series?

    Hope the gold caps do not retain fingerprints >.<

      the nudy glow lipglosses? i think those got discontinued in japan lol i cant find them anymore
      anyway those are lipglosses. not the same things eehee

    You got me interested 😛 i wouldnt have given it more than a glance as the packaging looks like a lipgloss, and i’m more of a lipstick girl 😀

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful review. I love to try makeup stuff with the idea of mousse in it, guess I can’t get enough of whipped cream.

    Thanks for this review, Yumeko! I really like the colours, but am not sure about the matte look. Perhaps I could just add a clear gloss on top if I wanted to add sparkle haha!

    I mainly wear lipgloss for work but when I am out, particularly a special occasion or event, I tend to wear lipstick. Much more vibrant colour! A while ago I blogged about Make Up Sore lippies and their Redelicious shade is a real cracker! I love it but it is so bright that it’s not really work appropriate.

    Will go search for more Canmake reviews on your site. 🙂

    Thank you for the review! I’m glad that you noted that it can be drying for some. I like reviews that will give both the good and the bad. Canmake is one of my favorite Japan drugstore lines.

  6. Jian says:

    OOoooooooo they actually look super pigmented on the swatch! Love! I also prefer lippies over lipglosses… so they seem like a good idea!

  7. Nina says:

    Lip mousse is an amazing idea, I first thought that they’d be in stick form, but I guess that would be not practical at all xD Colors are gorgeous. By the way, can you please do a tutorial for your eye make-up? I really like it and would like to try =)

    Thanks for the review! I’m happy to see that they are reasonably priced. It’s very interesting to see the consistency as I didn’t expect it to be a cross between lipgloss and lipstick; thanks for sharing! ^^ (and as always…you’re so pretty!)

    Tried these on the back of my hands and it’s drying…
