#events #spotlight #productreview

To be honest, I have never hear of Canmake before until it was launched last April 2013. I quickly fell in love with the makeup because #1, Kawaii Packaging, and #2 I love anything Japanese made. What their eyeshadows lack in pigment (compared to brands for professional use), they make up in other stuff like their flawless finish powders and their barely there concealers.

Canmake Spring Collection Launch Press Kit
First let me show you what we got from the press kit. These are just some of what's coming in Spring from Canmake! I will make a thorough review on each one as soon as I can! Hopefully before March though so you will know which Canmake products you'll get before Summer starts!

Lash Care Essence
A make-up that aims to take care of your lashes! A Hall of Famer at the cosme, Japan’s no. 1 make-up word of mouth site, the lash care essence is the treatment that you need to repair those damaged lashes!

I really learned a lot from the event! The Japanese owners who brought us Canmake taught us a lot about the Japanese way in putting on and removing makeup. It's very interesting to learn!
And now, a sneak peak at what's coming this Spring from Canmake! Let me tell you though that descriptions are from the press kit. I had to copy and paste them because I've never experienced them first hand. I can't wait though! When they come out, I will make sure to get some and tell you all about them!

Stay-On Balm Rouge
*They didn't include any description or information on this product but I will find out!*

So, after the event, I learned so much about Canmake during the demo that a lot of products intrigued me. The first thing that interested me was the Marshmallow Finish Powder.

Well for one, it has a very cute name! Hahaha! I couldn't stay long at the event, but I went back to Somera the next day to buy some Canmake stuff that I want to try!

(L-R) Nose Shadow Powder, PhP 520 | Easy and Fast Make Gel, PhP 530 | Marshmallow Finish Powder, PhP 650 | Gokubuto Mascara, PhP 480

These are the Canmake products that I bought: The Nose Shadow Powder, Easy and Fast Make Gel, Marshmallow Finish Powder, and their curling mascara, Gokubuto. The Make Me Happy Grapefruit Lotion is a freebie for buying so much. LOL All in all I spent PhP 2,180 for everything. Not bad for really good quality makeup!

I wish I can feature all of the products here all at once but I plan to do this one by one so I can give a thorough review! The first on my agenda is the Marshmallow Finish Powder.

I love the packaging! As usual, Japanese packaging takes the cake. I love how baroque the compact looks. And their plastic packaging is just so Japanese.

Canmake Marshmallo Finish Powder, PhP 650
 It's too bad that no information/instructions are written in English, but then again, you can see that they stuck a piece of sticker with the ingredients list is written in English.

Look at that cute packaging! When my friend saw it, she wanted to buy it right away because it had her the moment she laid eyes on the cute compact.

It's quite portable too, made from hard plastic. The refill is only PhP 450, but if you buy it with the compact it's PhP 650.

As all pressed powders go, there is a protective film on top of the powder. This is to keep the oily sponge that you use to get in contact with the powder so keep the plastic film to avoid oil transfer to the powder.

Yes, I am that fair. Hahaha! I am thankful too because it's not really that hard to look for a good powder or foundation base.

I swatched it on my hand not spreading it too much so you can see the finish of the powder. It has a soft venvet-y finish. It's very easy to spread and really has a soft texture.

Take a look at that finish! It looks so natural on my face! I thought that it might be too white for me (I mean there was no other choice in shades, it was this or the dark one) but it adjusted to my skin color and tone perfectly.

ON MY FACE: Happy Skin Don't Get Mad Get Even Hydrating Liquid Foundation in Soft Beige, CanMake Marshmallow Finish Powder, K-Palette 2Way Lasting Eyebrow in Dark Brown, MAC Brow Gel in Show-Off, Majolica Majorca Lash Gorgeous Wing Neo in Black, Palgantong Pop Cheek Blusher in Baby Pink, ELF Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder, Happy Skin Moisturizing Lippie in First Kiss


  • Beautiful medium coverage.
  • Smooth texture, like velvet.
  • Sets really well on the skin.
  • Shade adapts well to skin tone.
  • Not chalky.
  • No funky perfumed, fake smell.
  • Allergy tested.
  • Affordable!
  • Gives a nice glowing finish. Emphasizing your face's glow, not hide it.
  • Does not cake.
  • Can be applied with the velour puff or a brush.
  • Does not make skin look dry and chalky.
  • Quality makeup that is a friend to the wallet.
  • Does not give a white finish on skin.
  • Can be used alone or to set liquid foundation.

  • Limited branches for now.
  • I am not really feeling the velour puff. Although it gives a medium coverage vs a sponge where it gives the thickest overage. A big powder brush gives a beautiful veil finish on top of your foundation.

  • Available only in 2 shades.

Will I re-purchase? Yes. Definitely!
Will I recommend it? Yes.
