Canmake Powder Cheeks in PW22 [[REVIEW]] + Sentimental Circus + MAC So Cute randomness

Posted in Canmake, MAC, San-X by Jae on February 9, 2011

It’s been a while since my last blush review!

The last time I checked, my last one was last month so I’m back with Canmake’s Powder Cheeks in PW22 today~
(They should really give me an award for buying so much Canmake… -mutters-)

I purchased this blush because I thought it looked similar to my Melliesh ones but nope, it’s not a dupe for anything in my stash – It’s actually one of the other unique colours I have. :3

There’s only one way to describe this blush: Flat, medium, sweet pink.

It’s completely matte – and would be great for you if you don’t like shimmer on your cheeks or if you just want to try out a colour that will not appear too sweet and sparkly (seeing as Canmake’s blushes tend to be loaded with shimmer).

The more I stared at my swatches, the more I liked this colour so when I used it together with my Candy Doll Peach Pink blush plus my Canmake highlighter in Baby Peach and it turned out beautifully, giving me a slightly more matured but still sweet look, I was pleasantly delighted.

It’s great for you if you’re working and you can’t have your makeup too sweet or if you just want to go with pink but don’t want to look too kawaii.

I used two swipes of the pan for these swatches so the pigmentation is definitely there – in fact, it is possible to overdo the colour (think clown-like >_<) so do go easy on your application.

I do believe that this is one of the those colours that would work on a wide range of skin tones, though it may be a little strong on you if you’re extremely fair but that can be fixed with a lighter hand. -winks-

For reference, I’m a MAC NC30 and an RMK 102!


These looked so cute, I just had to share them with you. I just collected them from the store yesterday and am loving the elephant XD

They are characters from San-x’s new character line, Sentimental Circus! The elephant’s a coin purse and the bunny is just a handphone charm – I’m in love with a new line again… Oh no…

I know I said I wouldn’t go back to MAC but the collection says “SO CUTE” and the lipstick colours are just my type.

There are quite a number of repromotes though… I marked them [reprom]s so you’ll know to check your stash before you purchase. In any case, the collection is slated for April this year, so we’ve got plenty of time to save up in the mean time. ❤
