I saw these tubs of Canmake Loose Cheek blush powder in Sasa and I immediately fell in love with them. Which girl can pass up the adorable clear lucite tubs with the cute little puff nestled within? They are like mini tubs of Kanebo T’estimo’s layer loose powder blush.
This is a loose powder blush. From experience, loose powder blushes can be tricky to handle if they are pigmented. This is because just a little dab can leave you with clown cheeks. So, the fact that the Canmake powder blush is sheer has its benefits.
I tested Baby Pink, Rose Pink and Orange. Baby Pink is a very light pink colour with slight shimmer. It hardly shows up on my skin and would only suit the very fair in my view.
Rose Pink is a medium pink shade with gold toned shimmer. This one appeals to me because it is a slightly shimmery peachy shade on my skin. It reminds me of T’estimo’s PK20 loose powder blush which I missed buying and I’m happy to have a cheap option at my disposal. Orange was just orange. It would probably suit those with tanned skin but only made me look bruised and strange.
The loose powder blush comes in a little tub with the softest cutest powder puff you will find in a beauty store. There is a sifter so all you need to do is hold the puff against the sifter and turn the tub over a few times so the colour gets onto the puff. Then tap it against your hand to disperse the colour and only then pat it on your face. It is sheer so it makes for less mistakes and you can layer it on for more intensity. A tub of Canmake loose cheek powder costs RM36.90.
Now who said that cheap was not good?
Pros: Cheap, sheer, cute packaging
Cons: Wears off faster
