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.
