Canmake Cream Cheek

May 4, 2011

If you are a makeup lover and you haven’t tried  Japanese drugstore makeups..then you are missing out!! One of my favorite Japanese drugstore makeup brands is Canmake,  it is a very pretty, girly and affordable makeup line that is insanely popular amongst the young girls in Asia. A lot of us (including me) look up to Lena Fuji’s style (a popular Japanese model) who is the ambassador of Canmake and she swears by Canmake’s blushes.

Canmake cream cheek in 3 Strawberry Whip is a cool pink (almost like a barbie pink) with tiny particles of silvery shimmers.

To my pleasant surprise, the pigment is very rich so a little goes a long way.  The texture is smooth and can be easily blended and dries down to a powdery finish.  I prefer to use my fingers to gently dab it on to my cheeks rather than using a buffing brush. Like many cream blushes, it does settle into my pores but it can be easily fixed if I prep my skin with a silicone based primer first. The lasting power is pretty average in my opinion – I am only left with some fallouts all over my cheeks after a few hours of wear.

Overall: A nice range of colors (particular the girly pink ones) to choose from, mostly contain shimmers. A cute pink blush to have for less than $10 (that is how much I paid when I was in Asia). If you are buying it online for more than $15..I don’t think it is worth it…

ooh the color looks gorg on you! I’ve been eyeing these blushes, but think they are really over priced here in the US. Maybe I’ll try to find them in Korea this summer hehe
