DUPE: Melliesh Lipgloss 06 Candy Pink

DUPE ALERT is ringing through my makeup bag right now!
Although it’s not a perfect dupe on my hand- it’s very very similar on the lips!

So- I noticed no one has yet to find a dupe for this particular (higher end-ed, reasonably expensive for the amount- more expensive than MAC) lipgloss. And since I recently went on a tiny huge haul, I noticed that it was almost the exact same color when I got home, and thought that I’d share with you guys this gloss that could save you some money ;3 (aren’t I nice? and kind? and pretty? and so so humble??? XD jks la~)

Before I get on to the actual gloss, here’s a little bg info on Melliesh …
1. It’s a japanese makeup line produced by Yui Kanno (a famous gyaru model)
2. Very very similar to Candy Doll if you’re familiar to that brand

The Melliesh lipgloss in 06 キャンディピンク (which I have translated to: Candy Pink- I dont think its official though ><) retails at 1260 JPY (with tax) and is a 3-in-1 gloss that is supposed to be a lip concealer, lipstick and lip gloss all in one. So in other words- the color you see on the bottle, will be the exactly same color on your lips.

Now the gloss that I’m duping it with is….
