Grabbed this on a whim in Japan because I ran out of foundation.
The coverage was surprisingly good - I have quite a number of scars and broke capillaries on my cheeks, and this covered them up completely. It’s a little thick, but spreads and blends easily. The finish is pretty dewy. It also lasted through all 12 hours of sightseeing under the blazing sun, although it lacked oil control. That’s not a problem for me, because I can just blot and powder throughout the day
Sadly, this didn’t make the cut for me because it TRANSFERS. :( No matter how much (or how little) powder I set it with, this transferred to the rims of my glasses and phone, even when it’s freshly applied and set.

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.
