Review : CANMAKE Stay-On Balm Rouge + swatches

A few days ago, CANMAKE added a new lip product to their permanent lineup.
Here is the display in the store
canmak-1
Packed with organic oil and moisturizing ingredients as well as UV Cut properties.
RRP: 609yen [in japan]

I picked one up to try
canmake-3
In 02 [orange of course XD in case u didnt know i am on an orange lip product kick]

The packaging is a lot less pretty than the usual Canmake items.
canmake-2
The label is just a paper sticker [-_-;]

Pros
– sheer yet pigmented
– creamy lip balm
– has UV blocking properties
– no scent
– comes in 4 wearable colors

Cons
– ugly paper sticker packaging
– bulky packaging [its a lot larger than a lipstick/lipbalm]

This range comes in 4 shades
Swatches [From left 01, 02, 03, 04]

Overall Thoughts
To put it simply, these are basically a dupe of the Revlon Lip Butters so if you already have those, you might not need these. However these do have UV protection so thats a perk. I have all the shades of Revlon Lip Butters so i am not sure if i will be picking more up at this moment. [so i say, dont hold me to it XD] However they are good value, pigmented and super creamy. I highly recommend them.

[this product is really new and not actually on their website product lineup yet but its been released in Japan.]

Hope your week is going well!
