Here's what it looks like. it doesn't come boxed, just sold like this (sealed with an extra few stickers outside)

The back: the color code 02 is written on the label.

Comes in doe-foot applicator- 

Swatches: on left is when applied directly, on right when blended. The shade is a champagne beige, once blended out the color is a bit lighter but there is still some pigmentation. The shimmer is gorgeous and even, there are a few more sparkly bits inside though (but not quite glittery). It dries quickly yet still manage to look moist.

Here's my bare eyes. The dot is a freckle. It's already prepped with some powder foundation and concealer but it's been a few hours so there's some wear off.

With a good 2 coat of the shimmer jelly eyeshadow in #02 Sugar Milk Tea. Also lined with the De Javu liner in Dark brown (reviewed previous post) and the Kiss Me Heroine Make Volume & Curl Mascara in black.

I added just 1 extra layer to show the sparkles better. Sorry didn't blend too well closer to the lash line.

Now to the Kiss Me Heroine Make Mascara in "Volume & Curl Up" (I think the other version is the Length & Curl). It's been a long favorite mascara in Japanese drugstores and is often voted number 1. I've used 2-3 tubes over the last 5 years (I change around for fun but like this one enough to go back to it every now and then). It really great at volume, you can see how dense my lashes look at the roots after application. I didn't apply with that much care either otherwise the length can go even more. In terms of curling I would still stick with an eyelash curler. (In the photos above I didn't curl my lashes).

Here's the Kiss Me Mascara. The packaging is very old school Japanese manga style drawing which doesn't appeal to me that much. It retails for around 13USD in drugstores in Japan and are easily sourced on ebay.

Comes in a unique applicator- it is sort of skinny in the middle and wider on both ends.

You can see it is a fibre based mascara so there is a bit fibre inside. I do not have too much issue with fall out but it still does happen. If applied carefully this can lengthen a fair bit too.

It is quite durable and it doesn't dry out too much despite having opened it for about 5 weeks. After a good 12 hours day I do get some minor smearing under the eyes but I get that with almost every single mascara out there. It does take a proper eye makeup remover to remove properly too. It is very "black" so a few proper removals is highly recommended.

Overall both items get a 5/5 from me. For girls with paler skins the Canmake will show up with better color. For tanned girls it will be more of a shimmer/sparkle than color (however you can always try other shades from the line). It is a gorgeous liquid/cream eyeshadow and you can wear it alone or use it as an eyemakeup base before other eyeshadows. It helps to hold other colors very well without interfering with the colors.
