Great colors and coverage. Most of my canmake shadows are shimmery and glittery and I love using them when I go out at night. They stay put without eye primer. I would buy more on Ebay.
I absolutely adore eyeshadows from Canmake. The trio (aka Canmake Eye Nuance) comes in many different shades all matched to perfection. The colors are not too intense so you don't have to worry about looking like you've got a black eye at one application. Most of them are rather shimmery too.
I got a black white duo. The product is great looking colors with lots of lots of spark, more than other japanese brand. Yet, I am very disappointed in the lasting power.The black will smudge to my lower eyes.
This product is only 3 stars because my taste for pigmented eyeshadow grow and this eyeshadow is just not pigmented enough. However, I would say this is a good eyeshadow for those looking for light makeup for school, work or for a trip to nearby mall. The colour would show up more if you have a eyeshadow base applied first and it will also makes the staying strength of the eyeshadow longer. This series have very obvious simmer and gliters, those who do not like it might want to stay away.
Waste of my money. I have a white single, with a shimmer effect. The shimmer applies patchy. Ugly. It looked different when applied on my hand , hence I bought it.
I realise the reviews below are talking about the trio. I personally did not like how the trio felt but this review is for the single Metallic Eyes. I bought this in 09- a shimmery charcoal black. Turned out fab and very "in" type of smoky eyes.
The texture is silky and goes on quite pigmented. Lasting for the whole day without smudging. I also use this to "set" the eyeliner on my waterline for greater lasting powers.
Cons: no mirror packaging is like SU clear plastic. Also remember to tap off excess powder if using brush. It has quite as bit of e/s dust. I experimented, this works better with sponge type applicators for a more true and faster application.
Will repurchase other colours for fun cos it is very cheap. about SGD $12.
I got a Fresh Eyes trio from a gift package. It contains a soft pink and a shimmering greyish black, tgt with a cream primer. The primer is very hard to spread on lids and is greasy, I seldom use it anyway. The pink is too faint that it is hardly noticeable. But then,when you look carefully, it adds a soft brightening effect to the eyes. The greyish black color is better, it is somewhat pigmented and more densely shimmered. Good enough to bring out a decent smokey eye.The case is a clear plastic lid.No sponge.
I óż the Glow Twin Color duos!! I picked this up in 01, which has two shades: a glimmery white, and a shimmery peach-beige. The texture is smooth and application (with a brush) is a breeze. The eyeshadows are on the sheer, pastel side, but are pigmented enough to be layered for more intensity. And they have decent staying power too! About 8 hrs...I especially love the peach-beige shade, which is close to my eyelid color, but shimmery and slightly lighter, so it makes me look brighter and more wide-awake, and at the same time the look is so natural! A wonderful every-day kind of look. Paid about US$6-7 for this duo. A definite repurchase! EDIT 12/28/06: After trying out many other brands (including Aube and KATE), I've realized that the pigmentation and texture of those blow Canmake's out of the water. Am dropping my lippies.
I got greedy and bought 3 eye-shadows - a trio (green/yellow/white), metallic bronze single, gold single. All of them have hardly any pigment even. The green & yellow only showed a subtle layer of shine and shimmer. No green, no yellow. The gold had practically no gold when applied on the lids. Crap!
i bought this in taiwan, great texture and color. i use 2 out of 3 colors in this trio everyday (as a highlighter), and they have very wearable colors only with another brand called FF. not for people looking for rich/dramatic color though, very good for the natural angelic/fresh look. better than urban decay and many high-end brands! trust me. fyi:careful with the lid, hinge breaks easily.
