Canmake Powder Cheeks Blush PW20 review/ swatch

I went through a phase of Canmake blushers and collected quite a few colors. This particular shade was one which I reached for quite often for about a month.

Canmake 'powder cheeks' are small compact blushers housed in a plastic container and also contains a very small blush brush. It's handy to have the brush inside but it's definitely nowhere near the convenience or ease of use of a proper full sized blush brush.

This shade is "PW20" , which is a soft candy pink in the pan:

You can see in the pan there's visible shimmers in the blush, sort of silvery shimmers:

Some swatches (below on the left is Chanel irrellee blush #80 tea rose, just as a random comparison), on the right is Canmake PW20 blush.

All swatches below are Canmake PW20 blush.

You can see it's really finely milled and does have a slight silvery sheen (rather than visible silver flecks). It's a true soft, milky candy pink, adds that pop of innocent pink on the cheeks.

While it's a rather adorable shade, after a while I got a bit bored of it- I think Jill Stuart blushes often have a quad in this particular pink (e.g. #13 milky strawberry mix blush), which is more flattering than Canmake in general because Jill Stuart blushes have a bit more 'translucency' to the finish which looks even more natural than Canmake. Of course, Jill Stuart blushes are like about 4 or 5 times the cost of these..

Nevertheless I would still recommend getting one or two Canmake blushes to have a try- they are good quality drugstore blushes that retails for like less than $10USD in most places. These are also sold in Taiwan.

Rating: 3.5/5.
