This is by far my favorite sunscreen of all time! First of all, I should mention what I'm looking for in a sunscreen - what my perfect sunscreen product is like:- has an SPF of 30 or higher- should work as a base (under makeup, and in conjunction with my other skincare products)- shouldn't dry out my skin- should not be greasy- should not leave a white cast, so I can use it w/o makeupAnd the Canmake Meramid Skin Gel UV ticks all the boxes for me (28yrs, sensitive, dehydrated combination skin).The Canmake Mermaid Skin Gel has an SP of 50+ (PA++++), yet doesn't feel heavy or thick. Unlike most suncreens, it's not a cream. It really has a gel-like consistency. Looks slightly milky, but not white and opaque. When you blend it out on your skin it looks translucent.I've used it together with foundations (Revlon Color Stay for dry skin) and bb creams (Missha BB cream, Maybelline Dream Matte BB), and over different moisturizers (for example the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel) and it worked well together with all of these. I never had any pilling issues either.In the summertime, I sometimes skipped moisturizer and just used this underneath my makeup. I find it slightly hydrating, and it leaves a shiny finish without being heavy or greasy. It's not a sunscreen with a matte finish, but you can easily mattify the skin with a light layer of powder. With other sunscreens, I often couldn't dim down the shine, even if I used several layers of powder. This is not the case here, it's easy to tame the shine with this one.Another plus is that it doesn't leave a white cast. With other sunscreens, I often felt like I had to put on makeup to conceal the white cast. The UV Gel doesn't leave any cast, it just looks like you put on a moisturizer. It hasn't pilled on me either, as another reviewer described (Pilling is usually caused by hyaluronic acid, so it may be that the culprit was a moisturizer or serum that contained HA).And on top of all that, it's also affordable and the packaging is cute as well.The only downside is the availability - I've only found a couple of shops overseas that sell Canmake products, unfortunately. Other than that, I really recommend this sunscreen to anyone who is looking for a sunscreen with high spf that is easy to handle. That is probably my main concern since I've tried many products - most sunscreens either leave a cast, don't work together with my other skin care or makeup products, or are too greasy. So this is perfect for me!

The "rose red" shade is a wine colour containing eye-safe red pigments. I only use it at the outer corners of my eye but it holds well throughout the day. The eyeliner itself is not as soft as other gel pencils, but it goes on easily enough and blends out well too. Put too much force on it, however, it will snap readily wasting a big chunk of product. It's a twist-up automatic design which tend to have less eyeliner in them than traditional wooden ones.This is very cheap within Japan so be warned that some sellers put huge markups on its price, there are plenty who sell at a more reasonable cost.Recommended for those after an eye-safe red eyeliner!

This is definitely the best eyeshadow primer I've ever used and all for under $10?! Over the years, I went through tubes of Urban Decay, Smashbox, Nars, Two Face, pretty much anything you can find at Sephora and there was something slightly wrong with each: primer color showed up on my skin, took too long to dry, eyeshadow still didn't stay put all day on my oily lids, etc. Canmake's eyebase is invisible, easy to use, doesn't irritate, and nothing budges on my eyes all day. Usually my eyeshadow disappears or moves around. I went hiking once and expected my liner and shadow to be a mess after but my eye makeup looked just as good after as when I started. It's all you want in a primer.

A dark brown mascara containing black fibres, from the Japanese brand Canmake. It promises to lengthen and curl lashes and make them look softer than a black mascara, but still well defined, The tube is a smaller size than usual, but it probably leads to a need to replace it more frequently so you don't use a ton of expired make-up. Has a cute design typical of Canmake products, and the wand inside has a long brush head that curves at the tip, separating and pushing lashes up from underneath.This does lengthen lashes with fibres, although not as dramatically as I'd expected. It looks fairly natural on after 1-2 coats, it's not easy to get dramatic, voluminous lashes no matter how many layers you add to it, but for a natural or no make-up make-up it's perfect. Lashes get a subtle boost in length, while also appearing soft enough that you could think it's just natural eyelashes instead, It's only a minor colour change but it really does look less harsh and less dramatic than black mascaras in general.What I'm not so keen on is how it's not all that waterproof, as it's a film-type mascara that claims to be water-resistant, but comes off easily with warm water. I don't use non-waterproof mascaras much because I need to wear contact lenses and if it gets around and under the lens, it stings my eye and I have to take it out. It does seem to come off a little in hot weather outdoors. If it was a true waterproof formula then I'd repurchase but that's a dealbreaker for me.Update 15/8/18 - Don't know if it's my fringe getting longer and touching my lashes or the mascara drying out in the tube - either way the fibres keep breaking off and I'm often finding a bunch of them on my undereye areas after a few hours' wear. Looks lovely when first applied but definitely doesn't last!
