Lip Look: Carol’s Daughter Candy Paint Lipgloss

Published in: Makeup, Product Reviews

Afternoon, cuties! I stepped away from my friend Jen’s bridal shower for a minute to say hi. I started this post before I left the house this morning. With WordPress it’s easy to finish blog posts from a mobile phone, which is kinda cool.

Anywho, the gift bags were a big hit. Although it’s a tea party theme, and we’re having different teas and dainty finger sandwiches, the party was organized by Filipinos, which also means fried food and perhaps even some karaoke, LOL! I practiced in my living room this morning with a few Jordin Sparks songs. :)

I wanted to share some lip looks with ya. These three cuties pictured above are from the Candy Paint lipgloss line ($13.50 each) by Carol’s Daughter. The company is well known for fragrances, body and hair products. These glosses mark their first foray into cosmetics.

Bronze Goddess: a sheer brown with shimmery gold

Grown and Sexy: A sheer pink with shimmery gold

Hot Mocha: A creamy brown

The shades look darker in the tube than they do once they’ve been applied. The formula reminds me of MAC Lipglasses but is a touch thinner and not quite as sticky. These give off a strong minty fragrance that lasts for a few minutes (it may still be there; could be I just got used to it) and a slight mint flavor. I’m not crazy about the sensory overload, but if you like mint these will be like Christmas candy to you.

The product contains all natural ingredients, notably grapeseed oil, shea butter, aloe vera extract and vitamin E, and the whole recipe adds up to some quality hydration and lip conditioning. Carol’s Daughter managed to do this all without mineral oil, artificial colors and parabens, too.

The company even donates a portion of the proceeds from sales of Candy Paint Lip Gloss to the Lupus Foundation of America (LFA).

Ahhh, I gotta go. I think I hear the karaoke machine warming up. I hope you’re having a fab day. I’ll see ya in a few…

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

    Those shades look great, I think, but maybe it’s just ‘cuz they’re on your lips. Anyway, I love hydrating lipglosses…

  5. Dao says:

    I didn’t know Carol’s Daughter also does makeup (or at least lip glosses). The texture maybe is similar to MAC lip gelee? The lip gelee is also shiny and thinner than lip glass. Karaoke? I want to sing!

    Hi Indian Girl,

    Thanks! :) Hope you had a great weekend!

  14. Karen says:

    Hi Karen B.,

    Thank ya, girlie. Hope you’re having a fun weekend. :)

  15. Karen says:

    Hi Almira,

    They’re pretty hydrating. How do you like the sheerness?

  16. Karen says:

    Hi Tiera,

    LOLOL… maybe one of these days when I get the courage!

  17. Karen says:

    Hi Dao,

    Yup! MAC’s Gelee is a bit more “cushy” on the lips and doesn’t have the minty flavor.

  18. Karen says:

    Hi Erin,

    You’re welcome. They are pretty subtle and natural… I hope you like them!

  19. Karen says:

    Hi Shefali,

    That’s probably my fave out of the three!

  20. Karen says:

    Hi Glosslizard,

    LOL, not this time! :)

  21. Karen says:

    Hi Betsy,

    Yah… there’s a lot more shades to choose from in the entire collection! Do you think you might pick one of ‘em up?

  22. Karen says:

    Hi Gio,

    Thanks! I hope you had a fab weekend!

  23. Karen says:

    Hi Asta,

    I think so. The colors are *super* sheer. I had to kinda pack them on to get them to show. It’s a great weekend gloss for chill/relaxed looks, for sure.

  24. Karen says:

    Hi Eru,

    Hope you had a great weekend, girlie! Hot Mocha is fun… makes me want to go out and eat a ton of chocolate.

    Big hugs back!
