ABAD Day 22: Canmake Powder Cheeks blush in PW16//"每日一胭脂"系列 第22天: Canmake PW16 胭脂

Today's featured blush is from Japanese drugstore brand Canmake, they have a comprehensive range of blushes on offer, from cream to powder, duos and stripes-like. I had my eyes on a tawny orange color PW16.

今天featured胭脂是日本開架式品牌 Canmake, Canmake 有很齊全的胭脂種類, 粉狀膏狀, 2色, 4色都有. 我看中的是橙色的"健康顏色" PW16.

It might not be captured here but the blush carries shimmer. Am no fan of the flimsy plastic packaging here. There's also a small synthetic brush attached but it's not that great to use, not pictured here.

可能在相中很難看到, 但PW16是帶有閃粉的. 另外有人造纖維的小掃子, 不太有用.

PW16 gives a tawny and slightly sunburnt color, it worked for me quite well last year but this year I found it made my face look dull, I am considering topping it with a pink blush above.

PW16 的顏色是很陽光的橙色, 去年在我曬黑了的皮膚上就好看, 但今次再試時令我面色看下去很無生氣, 曬乾了的樣子. 我會考慮配合粉紅色的胭脂一起塗, 面色會好看一點.

Intensity: Sheer, mediocre pigmentation
Finish: Shimmery
Price: ~$8-9 USD
Lasting power: 3-4 hours
Repurchase: No
Overall thoughts: Pigmentation is sheer and mediocre, took me 3-4 swipes to get it show up. Flimsy plastic packaging is a big no-no. Tiny synthetic brush inside compact is of no use. Blush shade itself made me look sunburnt (but not when I first tried it).

上色度: 低, 很淺色
效果: 有閃粉
價錢: ~$8-9 美元
持久度: 3-4 小時
回購: 不會
總評: 上色度實在頗低, 掃了3-4 下才出色. 單薄的透明塑膠包裝不太好看. 人造纖維掃子沒有太大作用. 顏色自身令我看下去好像曬燶了 (第一次試時不是這樣的).

What is A-Blush-A-Day (ABAD) Project?
On each day, each of us will present a different blush (old or new) we used each day (so that's 4 x 30 = 120 blushes), with swatches done either on face or on hand, and a short review. For my list of 30 blushes to be used in this project, click here. Don't forget to head to Elaine's, Vonvon's, PopBlush's blogs for daily blush surprises!

我們每天會介紹當日使用的胭脂, 4人 x 30 = 會介紹總共 120 個胭脂 (新與舊), 配以試色圖(於手上或面上), 再加短短的用評. 本人於未來30天會使用這些胭脂. 去 Elaine, Vonvon, PopBlush 的blogs看看她們在用那個胭脂吧!!


  1. i agree canmake powder blushes seem to be a bit chalky but the color looks gorgeous on your skin! :)

  2. The swatch looks so nice on your arm, but such a bummer that you think it looks dull :/
    I saw these when I was in Asia and I agree, I thought the packaging was poorer quality.The packaging prevented me from buying it! LOL.

  3. I don't think I would buy a blusher in that shade. I already look yellow enough lol

  4. I haven't tried anything from Canmake. Though I have been seeing their eyeshadows in SASA and wanting to try them.

    Love the shade of the blush in the pan. But if it makes you look sunburnt, then I guess it would look the same on me too. I am NC25.

  5. pretty color i really want to try canmake stuff >.<
