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!

I bought this thinking it would be a good alternative to the Biore sunscreen, because my Biore one sometimes pills under makeup. Unfortunately, even though most people's reviews on the Canmake mention that they experience no pilling, I experienced pilling that was far worse than the Biore. Perhaps it's the way it's interacting with my skincare underneath, but I'm not about to stop using those products for this sunscreen. It also leaves a very shiny finish, but in a dewy way, not in a slick oily way. I find that it leaves whitish streaks and you have to try to 'blend it in' even though you're not supposed to rub in sunscreen too much.Overall, because of the unacceptable pilling and the fact that it's not water/sweat-resistant (why would mermaids use this?), I won't be repurchasing this. Will probably use on days when I'm staying indoors and not have to put makeup on, or on my neck.

I have the transparent version, not black.Not a mascara per se, this helps me if I'm wearing false lashes and want a more secure hold. The wand is a simple shallow toothed comb, to use it you do exactly as you would with a standard mascara. It's marketed with claims about creating easy curled lashes, even without curling them first. This I disagree with - it won't magically make your lashes defy gravity. I'm also unconvinced over its purported abilty to refresh curl, although used after an eyelash curler it will hold that curl. However, as it's transparent, it's much harder to get black mascara all over the place. As mentioned above, this is great for false eyelash wear, it secures the fibres to my own lashes without overloading them with thick cakey mascara, While this isn't 100% waterproof, it is water resistant and doesn't wreak havoc on my contact lenses. A far better product than the price might suggest.
