Sunscreen -Canmake -Mermaid Skin Gel SPF50

on 7/19/2018 8:11:00 PM

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.

Mascara -Canmake -Quick Lash Curler

on 7/14/2018 11:04:00 PM


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.

Brows -Canmake -Liquid Eyebrow

on 6/19/2018 6:17:00 PM


Yes, I'm on the 5-star train, too. This product deserves it. Many thanks to kingspanky for her review--it's what got me to try this product.

Like many of us, I've tried dozens of brow products--powders, pomades, pencils, you name it--and haven't found quite the right one. Two of my favorites are Shu's Seal Brown Pencil and Benefit Ka-Brow in #2, and although both give good results, the Shu is not a great match for my brow color, and Ka-Brow is time-consuming to apply. And having overplucked my brows back in the day, I have gaps and wonky hairs and other issues. Enter Canmake. This marker pen has a long, firm felt-tip which I found odd, but it allows you to draw fine strokes with the tip or to fill in quickly by tilting it a bit and using more of the surface. The pen iis well-balanced, so it's easy to get a good grip for application, and the cap clicks on securely. Natural Brown 01 is a great match for my brows, although it looks dark in the applicator (and can be dark on the skin if overapplied). And it is, finally, a cool brown with that almost green tint that I think is critical to getting a natural look. What I like best about this product is that it's incredibly accurate and I can apply my brows in two or three minutes. It's so easy to sketch a quick outline of the brow you want (I don't cheat much, bot there are places I need to add a bit to get a natural look) and fill in with short strokes. My left brow is naturally more arched than the right (somewhat Spock-like). I love it and am usually unable to get it to show with most products. This makes accentuating that natural defect of sorts easy, and it looks natural, too. If you overapply, a spoolie will easily correct it; topping it with a bit of powder will soften the look. (Applying clear brow gel over it will not make it fade, either.) I wore this on a 100+ degree day when I was really sweating, and nothing moved or ran, yet it came off easily with micellar water. Very impressive. This will be my go-to brow product for some time to come--I am, finally, in brow heaven. The only issue with this product is that it usually needs to be purchased on Amazon or eBay, but the price is right (I think I paid $11 on eBay) and it seems as though it will last for some time. I will repurchase.

Blush -Canmake -Cream Cheek

on 6/4/2018 7:15:00 PM


I didn't buy these for the longest time, since I couldn't see what would make a cream blush special. There has never been a cream blush I noted as good before now and they're all quite same-y.

The more opaque shades without the CL prefix aren't really different to other cream blushes out there, although the shades are pretty. The CL/Clear type shades though - they are amazing! I only need a small amount, then blend and it melts seamlessly onto my cheek. Foundation or no foundation, it applies just as well but you need to tap it in a little lighter applying over foundation.
They are a bit sticky/slippery in the pot but when blended out they become a velvet powdery sheer colour, setting matte.
Once on, they don't budge - Japanese longwearing products are seriously good at staying in place. The overall effect is a noticeable and pretty flushed appearance while still looking as if it's natural.

Really love these blushes!
