Canmake Cream Cheek in CL01 Clear Red Heart

One of my biggest discoveries last year was drugstore makeup in Japan. I bought a ton but the Canmake blushes really stood out for me.

Canmake Cream Cheek in Clear Red Heart (CL01) is a sheer red cream blush. ‘Clear’ refers to it’s truly translucent nature which makes it adapt to your skin tone and texture really well to give a very natural and seamless look. It has a gel like consistency which looks similar to the Josie Maran Cheek Gelee but it’s creamier and softer.

You need absolutely the tiniest bit. The pinky red tone gives the most natural looking flush, almost like a stain.  I apply this by just dotting it around and then patting it to blend. This is great for a dewy look. There’s a bit of sheen in the beginning but it goes away after a while.

I apply a sheer layer and this lasts well for a good portion of the day with no fading for around 6 hours. After that it does start to fade out but doesn’t go patchy. You can absolutely build this up more to your liking, it will last longer.

How adorable and dinky is the packaging? That little bow! I can’t even deal! This is always in my handbag because it’s so tiny and easy to apply with fingers.

I definitely want more! The best place to buy these are if you are in South East/East Asians countries. It’s available online on eBay and some Asian based websites but it can be overpriced there. The actual price is 580 Yen which is around Rs. 300.

      Ohh the entire line up is so cute! Even the other brands like Etude House, Majolica Majorca bring me to my knees.

    Looks like a precious little gem. The packaging of these asian brands always draws me in, too.

    This looks so cute and such a gorgeous shade! I have been curious about trying Asian makeup or skincare for a while now as I always hear great things but I wouldn’t even know where to start x

      There are just so many options! Luckily I could narrow it down to japanese brands. I spent way too long at the store there. 😉

      Partly why I like it even more! :)

    I’ve heard great things about these! It does look super natural, like a blushing from within effect! I like this shade as well. It’s not something I already have 20 of :)

      There’s something very satisfying about using a bright red blush but ending up with brilliant natural colour. :p

    Hmmm it is a sign. Second time this week that I saw a review on this very item!
    I must get this pretty shade soon! :)

    • http://www.xuvious.com/ Xuvious

      Yes yes! I definitely recommend the ‘Clear’ shades. :)

    I’m recently obsessed with Asian cosmetics! Lisa Eldrige is to blame, obviously. The main trends are right up my street, and the packaging is much more fun that what we get over here. I think I might do an Ebay haul soon, thanks for the link!

    • http://www.xuvious.com/ Xuvious

      True, it’s nice to see that attention to detail even with drugstore brands.
      I love that LE has been exploring Asian Makeup, I’ll be right here taking in all her recommendations! 😉
