Canmake Powder Cheeks in PW05 Pink Orange Review

Hi pretties here is my Canmake Powder Cheeks in PW05 Pink Orange Review!

This microparticulate powder softly envelops and gently colors your skin, for a soft, natural finish.

I just made the grave error of converting the Japanese retail price of Canmake *Powder Cheeks in PW05 Pink Orange from Japanese yen to Australian dollars (SIX DOLLARS FORTY), to compare with its retail price in Australia, which is around EIGHTEEN DOLLARS. As you may already know, I did buy this blush for 50% off, but let’s not allow that type of thinking to dampen our moral outrage.

(Okay, I have to stop and mention that I’m sitting in a car wash cafe struggling with middle-class white guilt while culturally and linguistically diverse workers clean my car, and to compound the situation, Adele’s Someone Like You is playing over the cafe’s sound system and I may be becoming slightly teary. But moving on.)


Canmake Powder Cheeks in PW05 Pink Orange is packaged in a transparent plastic compact with a small brush. As you can see in the picture, the texture is sadly powdery, but… look at the pretty colour:


So pretty. If the way Canmake Powder Cheeks in PW05 Pink Orange looked in the pan would translate onto my little cheeks, that would be super. Instead, because it is quite sheer, I find that even on my NC15 cheeks, PW05 Pink Orange looks more like a powdery, pale peach highlighter rather than a true blush. As you’d expect in this scenario, PW05 Pink Orange also fades quite quickly as well.

Here’s an arm swatch for your perusal:


I’m wearing it anyway, for some reason. I guess just because I like the colour so much. What I do now is layer Canmake Powder Cheeks in PW05 Pink Orange over a cream blush, often MAC Cremeblend Blush in Something Special or one of the NYX Cream Blushes I picked up recently. I’m working hard for you, Canmake Powder Cheeks in PW05 Pink Orange, YOU GOTTA GIVE ME SOMETHING. No? Okay, well… fine.
