Canmake Sunset Beauty, Late Summer Release

Canmake's new collection includes three new eyeshadow palettes, two lipglosses and two shades of it's brand new gel liner.

I've had the opportunity to swatch the collection, and I have to say that these are very nice for the price! The eyeshadow palettes are soft, blendable, but maybe a little sheer. However, as I only swatched it, I can't say how long it lasts. Personally I dislike the packaging, but Canmake is dirt cheap. Also, these can be used as blush, bronzer and highlighters as well as eyeshadow.

The lipglosses aren't too thick or sticky and come in pink and bronze. Also pretty nice.

Lastly, the gel liners. Ever since Kanebo KATE came out with gel liners, hordes of Japanese brands have been coming out with their own. Canmake's is different because the brush is in the cap. You pull it out, twist open the cap and dip into the product. The texture is like Kate's, soft but firm, and pigmented. There is a bronze color and a black. I kept rubbing at the swatch I did on my hand and it didn't come off, maybe a tiny bit of fading.

All in all, a collection I can recommend! Since Canmake's collections and products are rather hit or miss, it's nice to see a good collection after the disastrous Spring one; in which the eyeshadows were chalky and faded quickly.

Can be purchased from Ichibankao. Eyeshadow palettes are 880 yen each, about 9USD and glosses are 540 yen each, about 6USD.
