Speed Reviews Round 1: Visee Mineral Cheeks Baby Finish, Canmake Eye Nuance in Brilliant Garden Reviews


Roll up, roll up – time is of the essence so here is my first speed review post with a mixture of bits and pieces I’ve tried out over the last few months but just don’t have the time (or the words?) to do a full review on! First up – Visee’s Limited Edition Mineral Cheeks Baby Finish in Orange OR-7 Visee is one of those Japanese brands that always looks good and is very […]

Canmake Powder Eyeliner Review and Swatches


I’ve been looking for a really good powder liner for a while; a friend of mine always uses one to tightline (I don’t because I find powder that close to my eyeball irritates it) and then she blends the black away into a really soft, flattering daytime look. Canmake released some gel pencil liners (review coming up) and 2 powder liners late last year. I am a complete sucker when it comes to eyeliners; I […]

Lips of the Day: Canmake Creamy Touch Rouge Sweet Cherry 03 Lipstick


Canmake Creamy Touch Rouge is one of the newer lipsticks released by the brand and immediately caught my eye because of the ‘creamy’ element!  It’s not that often Japanese brands produce really rich, pigmented lipsticks – the majority are sheer and shiny (in a very pretty way!). There are only 3 colours in the range: I have 1 shade (2 more in the post) 03 Sweet Cherry which is a red: The other 2 shades […]

Japan Haul featuring Love Clover, Addiction, Canmake, Kiss and SANA!


My lovely friend in Japan helped me out with a haul – yep, about twice a year (I think!) I get this urge to try out make up from Japan which isn’t that easily available. We had a bit of a disaster with nail polish (apparently you can’t send them via airmail) but we got there in the end! I have had mixed results with Love Clover (from B&C Labs) products but I noticed their […]

Cheap, and cheerful? Canmake Eyeshadow Base and Primer Review


Canmake is a drugstore/high street (whatever you want to call it) level cosmetic brand from Japan. Think Collection 2000. But much, much better and more innovative for the price! I purchased this eyeshadow base, because I am a sucker for primers of any kind. They say: A creamy eyeshadow base enhances colour payoff and prevents unsightly creases for eye makeup that stays vibrant and fresh even well into the night. Moist formula quickly turns to […]

So Kawaii Cheek! Canmake Cream Cheek Blusher Review


I have no idea what So Kawaii Cheek means, but I can imagine Pikachu saying it, so it’s staying. I am a fan of Canmake, a Japanese make up brand which is very much on the lower end of the scale – it’s affordable, cute and interesting although not everything from the range is perfect. I already own some of the Canmake Cream Cheek Blushers, they’re lovely, easy to blend and easy to use. I […]

Canmake Nail Glitter Nail Polish Swatches & Review!


I love a nice sparkly glittery polish although I hate taking it off and it flakes off me pretty quickly. When I saw these Canmake Nail Glitters, I had to have them! A friend CP’d them for me from Japan. They say: Glitter-packed lame sparkle! With just one of these, have gorgeous fingertips that sparkle overwhelmingly bright! I got 3 colours, 02 Champagne Gold, 05 Copper Bronze and 05 Turquoise Blue: There must be some […]

Sparkly Nails! Canmake Nail Lame Powder Glitter Review


So I’m not great at nail art but nail glitter – I can do. It’s easy…sprinkle sprinkle. But my problem is not knowing when to stop. I was that kid who would start colouring in a picture within the lines, then suddenly would enthusiastically start adding glitter and stars and pipe cleaners until I couldn’t even pick the picture up. Anyway, so I don’t end up dunking my entire finger into glitter, I bought these […]
