Review: Canmake Shading Powder, Cheek Gradation and Gradation Wink

Hello girls, how are you doing? I'm a little bored with my works now, so I decide to make another review post hehehehe. I hope you're not bored with review. I'll try to mixed my blog's content with tips and trick and FOTD post. Later I also want to make more tutorial posts so there are some variations on my blog. Today I will share about Japan Cosmetic.

The brand that I will talk about today is Canmake. I'm sure you already aware about this brand because it's very popular. Canmake is a Japan drugstore brand and it has a good quality. I owned 3 Canmake products: Canmake Shading Powder, Canmake Gradation Wink, Canmake Gradation Blush.
  • Canmake Shading Powder

I bought this when the last time I visited Hongkong. Actually I only want to bought the blush but then I saw this shading powder alone beside the blush (this is the last stock), so I decided to grab it too along with my blush. My color is a soft light brown and because I have a fair skin, I think this color suits with my skin tone. It isn't too dark and the color is buildable.

About The Product
Creates a soft-focus effect that beautifully highlights the shadows of the lines of the face. Contains a soft-focus agent that uses the diffuse reflection of light to create pore-less complexion that won't become dull easily. Comes with a flat brush that is easy to use on the lines of your face and convenient to carry in your make up bag.



Packaging
The packaging is made from plastic. It is simple and somehow looks cheap for me. The powder is embossed with a grid style so it looks like a chocolate bar. Mine is already fade because I've already used it for some time.


Texture and Swatch
This powder is matte without any hint of shimmer.

Price
I forgot about the excact price, I think it is around IDR 100.000. I bought it directly from Sasa Hongkong, so the price is more cheap than local online shop. The normal price is 680 Yen.

Conclusion
The powder is soft and buildable however the staying power is just so-so, nothing special for me. Also because I choose the light color, somehow it doesn't really visible on my skin wkwkwk (though I also don't want a dark brown lines on my cheek / nose too). The brush is quite good, it is soft and the size is really perfect to give shadow on my nose bridge. Overall, quite like it~ and I'm planning to buy the other color.

  • Canmake Cheek Gradation



Bought this along with my shading powder. I've been put this cute blusher in my wishlist since long time ago~ finally I have one hehehehe.

About The Product
Create a sense of depth with a combination of 4 colors. Use strong color for cheeks, light color for highlights. Freely and easily mix all the 4 colors. A satin sheen for glowing cheeks with shiny pearl.

Packaging
The packaging is similar with the shading powder's packaging. Made from plastic and looks cheap. But, I prefer this one than the shading powder. Why? because I love the color combination hahaha. Both packaging offer a "sneek-peek" because you can easily see the color from outside.





Texture and Swatch
The texture is not powdery and the color is pigmented.  It contains shimmer and you can use the color number 1 and 2 as blush, and color number 3 and 4 as highlighter.

Price
Again, please excuse my lame memory. I completely forgot the price, but I'm sure it is below IDR 150.000 but it is more expensive than the shading powder. Well maybe around IDR 140.000. The normal price is 800 Yen.

Conclusion
I love the combination of the colors. I usually mix all the color and use it only for blush. The shimmer also very acceptable. Staying power is okay and it has pigmented color. It also comes with a same brush like the shading powder. The shape and quality is the same, but this brush has stars ornaments on the handle while the shading powder's brush is simply plain white color. This is my favourite product from all my canmake products.


  • Canmake Gradation Wink






This is my first Canmake product ever. Bought it last year from local online shop.

About The Product
A combination of three must-have shades for the perfect color gradation. The moist powder containing squalane clings to your lids, making the color last longer! It won't won't dull, either! Features a soft texture like satin, pearl particles for luster and twinkling lame particles. For an elegant and beautiful finish.

Packaging
From all my canmake products, this one win for the terms of cute packaging. It also comes with plastic and see-through packaging. But.... the eyeshadow also has another decoration. Well, I'm not really sure how to called it.. Maybe fake bling bling? hahahaha. I really love the decoration, it makes the eyeshadow looks more shiny and cute. I wish the can make the same packaging for the blusher.



Texture and Swatch
The texture isn't powdery and quite creamy. Too bad it isn't really pigmented (Me too not hope too much from Asian eyeshadow, which usually have natural color). It has a nice shimmer, not to much but still visible on my eyes.

Price
Around IDR 130.000 - IDR 140.000 the price is quite expensive because I bought it from local online shop. Normal price is 520 Yen.

Conclusion
Not my favourite eyeshadow but I can't say no to its cute packaging hahahaha. It also really help for a beginner like me. You can see, the colors are divide from light color to dark color (from top to bottom). According to the information on the back of the packaging, you can use your fingertip to apply this eyeshadow to create a beautiful gradient eyes without waste too much time.


  • Bottom Line
Asian brands sure have cute packaging and various color selections for their make up. I also always love how they named their product hehehehe. I think Canmake is a good start for me, now I want to try their famous cream cheek too~ Maybe later when I have chance, I will buy it ^^
