Comparing my favorite lip sticks~ Zoya nail polish

Hi~♥

Been meaning to post this up but kept on forgetting to post it up,, Its my favorite lip stick comparison post :D 

I wanted to show you this swatches side by side since they are very similar in shades and they are one of my favorite lip sticks that I wear often, they all gives off pretty nudy pink lips that I adore so much~♥




1. Canmake Melty Nude #3 baby pink 2. Candy Doll Ramune pink 3. YSL volupte rouge #1 Nude beige

I would say that although the shade are similar Canmake melty Nude in baby pink are the lightest, Candy Doll in Ramune pink are mid shade and then the YSL Volupte rouge in Nude beige are deeper in shade as for the formulas I think they all goes on very smooth and nicely pigmented but the canmake seems to be the driest out of all 3 and I LOVE YSL Volupte rouge's formula so I was surprised and happy that the Candy Doll lip stick applied very similar to YSL really smooth and creamy~ ^__^

as for the shades I think the Canmake and the Candy Doll lipsticks are really similar shades and the YSL is tad bit deeper but all when applied it leaves your lips with a nice nudy pink shade~♥

I finally got my Zoya order last week! I took advantage of their FB promo where they were giving away 3 free polish to celebrate 20,000 likes in their FB so they had a TONS on orders in from that promo so it took my order about 3 weeks to get my order to me but hey it was worth the wait I only had to pay for the shipping fee and I never bought their polish before so it was a great way to test em out~ :D
The only thing is that I am still waiting for my 3rd polish to arrive since it was on back order so hopefully I get that polish soon~ as for my order I ordered their Remove+ nail polish and the polish in Erika, Laurie and Gigi*backordered*
I been trying to find perfect baby pink polish so I ended up ordering all pink shades lol X3




what it says in their site:

haha of course I ended up with a polish with my name and it happens to be baby pink shade so I had to get it lol ;p one thing I noticed are that the actual nail polish shades are not what you see in their website so I was a little bit bummed about that,, this shade in their site looks more vibrant like baby bubble gum pink but in real life its more of a beige-y pink with gold under tone from the micro shimmer dont get me from its still very pretty shade :)

Intensity 3 ( 1=Sheer - 5=Opaque )

I havent wore this one yet so I cant tell what it looks like on the nail yet but I can tell you that its pretty sheer which I was bummed about since on their Intensity chart it says 3 but it should be more like 1-2... I guess they got me when it said its shade are of cherry blossom pink lol




well overall from wearing Erika, it went on very smooth with just 2 coats but with its Intensity being 4 I think it needed a 3rd coat to make it completely opaque on my nails, I wore the polish without base polish and with Seche vite top coat flawlessly for 5 days until it started to chip so I guess overall Im happy with em :) 
I am thinking about ordering more from them since they have way too many shade I want to try~ :D


well that is it for this post~!
