Canmake Powder Cheek in PW16 [[REVIEW]] [[PLUS highlighter in PW05 matching]]

Posted in Canmake, Mizuki Nishikawa, watsons by Jae on January 24, 2011

And after a weekend of off-blush-topics, I’m back with yet another blush for you dear!

Now, because we’ll be moving into spring and summer, I thought I’d jump the gun just a little bit and introduce a colour that I don’t usually touch – orange.

A favourite of the models who fall in the ‘active’ category, Canmake’s got the perfect orange – Powder Cheek in PW16!

If the colour looks overwhelming right now? Well, it kind of is :3 It’s very easy to overdo blushes from Canmake especially because they are incredibly pigmented.

I just need one zigzag across the pan with my ecotools brush per cheek and voila I had an instant flush of colour.

Now, remember I said some posts back that I’ve been trying out the active GAL look (mostly because of Mizukitty XD)? Well, this has been my to-go blush for the past two days now because I was dressed very casually and pink would have cramped my style. :3

Additionally, because spring/summer is coming, a lot of Japanese models will start tanning a little to fit the season and the blush choice is almost always orange.

And yes, I also took the liberty to find a good highlight colour for this blush and I found it – Canmake’s PW05 that I reviewed in THIS post.

The two shades are quite far apart but I found that the PW05 really helped the Pw16 pop on my cheeks. 🙂

I took just one swipe of Canmake’s PW05 under one zigzag of PW16 for my look!

I’m also going to try out a slightly darker foundation colour really soon to fit the season -winks- So hang in there cause I’m going to be back with even more spring/summer worthy colours! 😀

    I have Canmake’s cream blush in Vitamin Orange and I really like it, even though I thought I’d never use orange blush… XD It obviously goes well with darker skin, but I also loooove love looove with with fair skin and orange or blonde hair! Super dolly (*^0^*)
