First up, Canmake Nudy Glow Rouge and Canmake Candy Wrap Lip.
CANMAKE NUDY GLOW ROUGE
The Canmake Nudy Gloss Rouge is described as a range of nude shade liquid rouge that is creamy, adds shine and long lasting. In addition, it contains beauty essence and volumizing complex that helps maintains moisture and gives your lips a plumped look.
There's 6 colours in the range: 01 Rose Macaron, 02 Strawberry Whip, 03 Browny Chocolate, 04 Sugar Milk Tea, 05 Honey Latte and 06 Peach Milk. (source)
I have 3 of the 6 shades. From left: 02 Strawberry Whip (milky pink), 05 Honey Latte (brownish beige nude)and 06 Peach Milk (milky peachy nude). None of the shades have visible shimmer.
This product is met with a lot of mixed reviews on the blogosphere, so I am going to list out what I like and don't like about the product to help you decide if this product is for you.
The pros: The Canmake Nudy Glow Rouge has a very creamy texture that is not too sticky in my opinion. It is also very long lasting, wearing well on my lips for over 4 hours if I don't eat/drink. It is definitely a pigmented product and the colour of the rouge translates well on the lips. I personally like to wear it on its own but it looks really good layered over other lip products to nude out the colour. This product also doesn't have a detectable scent, which is really good news for those who dislike lip products with fragrances. I like to blend it in for a more natural finish but if I can achieve a very glossy finish if I apply a thicker layer. Although I don't think that this product is particularly moisturizing, I can safely say that the Canmake Nudy Glow Rouge doesn't dry out my lips.
The cons: As the name implies, the Canmake Nudy Glow Rouge comes in a nude lips shade range, so it might not work for some skin tones. This rouge also has a brush tip applicator, which makes it really difficult to apply the rouge evenly onto the lips. I like to rub the product in with my fingers to blend it in. Besides that, this product also tend to settle into lip lines if you don't blend it in properly or if your lips are really dry.
I think the packaging is ok. It's plastic and the writings do rub off really easily, but I don't think that is a major issue. I have had 06 Peach Milk for a while and that is in fact my favourite out of the 3 that I own.
Sorry for the out-of-focus photo, but I hope you can still see how the gloss looks like on my lips. I applied a sheer layer and blended it out to give it a very natural look.
CANMAKE CANDY WRAP LIP
The Canmake Candy Wrap Lip is a product that claims to provide vivid colour while being moisturizing at the same time. It is described to have a jelly-like finish that has a light and smooth texture.
The Canmake Candy Wrap Lip has released several new shades since I bought mine. It is now available in 8 colours: 01 Sugar Love (classic pink), 02 Navel Drop (reddish orange), 03 Peach Shower (coral pink), 04 Lady Strawberry (red), 05 Pinkholic Syrup (blue-based pink), 06 Guava Smoothie (medium pink), 07 Hot Marmalade (tangerine) and 08 Pemegranate Jam (reddish coral).

I only have 2 colours: 02 Navel Drop (reddish orange), 03 Peach Shower (coral pink). Both has a clear jelly-finish, no visible shimmer.
For a jelly-finish gloss, the Canmake Candy Wrap Lip is undeniably one that is on the pigmented side. Although it does impart some colour onto the lips, I don't think that the colour comes out "exactly" like in the tube as claimed on the Canmake website. This gloss comes with a standard doe-foot applicator which makes application much easier compared to the Nudy Glow Rouge. The texture is much lighter and not as creamy as the Nudy Glow Rouge. I won't say that this gloss is sticky, but it feels ever so slightly greasy on the lips. This gloss is quite long-lasting, being able to stay on my lips for around 2-3 hours. Once again, I don't detect a noticeable scent. This gloss is more forgiving on dry lips than the Nudy Glow Rouge, plus it also doesn't dry my lips out at all. The packaging is plastic and is really light, but I think it's nice in terms of a drugstore product. I personally really like the design of the tube.
I was wearing the Canmake Candy Wrap Lip Lipgloss in 02 Navel Orange in this photo. The colour is a little washed out as usual. I am saving up for a new camera with a flip-out screen so I can take better photos in the future so please be patient with me!
