Canmake Perfect Serum BB Cream Review & Swatches

Canmake Perfect Serum BB Cream

If you’re currently shopping BB Creams for Summer wear might I direct you towards Canmake Perfect Serum BB Cream? Canmake Perfect Serum BB Cream is available in two shades with a whooping SPF 50 built right in.

Canmake is a lower end, budget Japanese cosmetic brand and typically I dislike Japanese BB Creams with a passion as most are too yellow for my skin and they typically have a super thin formula when compared to the creamier, richer texture of Korean ones.

However, Canmake definitely won my heart with this. I’ve been using it since it launched, probably a year or so ago? And it’s one of my favorite BB Creams from Japan.

Majolica Majorca Cream de Cheek Liquid Blush Review & Swatches

Majolica Majorca Cream de Cheek Liquid Blushes

Majolica Majorca Cream de Cheek Liquid Blush were launched in four shades last year but I never got a chance to review them and that’s a shame because they are a fantastic product.

Although available for a limited time they are still very easy to get from a variety of online shops. These are a liquid blush the likes of which has never been done before by Majolica Majorca.

Lavshuca Candy Pop Eye Base Review & Swatches

Lavshuca Eye Base

Lavshuca recently introduced a range of eyeshadow singles entitled Candy Pop. Along with this release Lavshuca Eye Base Primer makes an appearance in two different shades (pink and beige) which I decided I might as well try out.

I really don’t need another base at the moment but the cute pink tin was partially responsible for my spontaneous purchase, come on, cut me a break, you know I can’t resist cute packaging.

Sigh.

If you already own KATE Eyeshadow Base Primer you probably don’t need the Lavshuca Eye Base however, I will say that it actually seemed to perform a little better than the KATE formula. Of course, I might be just imaging that as KATE and Lavshuca are sister brands created by the same parent company, Kanebo.

Lavshuca Flower Syrup Gloss Review & Swatches

Lavshuca Flower Syrup Gloss Spring 2013

I wanna accuse Lavshuca Flower Syrup Gloss of not turning my everyday life into a wonderland.

According to the package, “As you put on this makeup, your everyday life turns into a wonderland in an instant”.

LIES all LIES!

The wonderland didn’t happen…where is my damn wonderland…?!

Ha…no seriously, that really is what the packaging says. I love Japanese makeup!
