Canmake’s Summer Collection 2008

Canmake is a drugstore brand available in Japan that’s low in cost and high on the cute scale. I personally love many of the items they put out. Quality is pretty good and the price can’t be beat! And the selection of items is VAST!

Canmake’s Summer Collection 2008 is now available on the website and should hit stores soon in Japan (or may already be in stores).

It’s not a huge collection but the items released have a bit of an impact as they are new to the Canmake line.

The first item that catches my eye straight away are the new eye palettes. This is the first time I’ve seen Canmake do an eye palette like this and it’s quite exciting! The palette is a quad of three shimmer shades (base shadow, eyelid shadow, and contrasting shade) and one liner. It’s a typical Japanese palette setup and has been done and redone but I still want them all!

The color selections available are a rose, blue, and brown variation. The price is 680 yen and as the yen is so strong at the moment which is setting it at under the mark of $6.73 USD but for the sake of it you might as well say it evens out to the same cost.

If you have access you might consider shopping in Taiwan at this point since it’s cheaper by at least $1 (or more if you’re lucky).

The collection also includes four new nail varnish colors available for 300 yen each. These aren’t new just updated colors to the general catalog.

It’s a tiny collection of goodies but I think the palettes make a big impact and I’m excited to try them out for myself!

Want any of this?

Love Canmake?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

  • Emilee @ GMM

    How cute! And for under $7? That’s an amazing price.

    Thanks for the lemming! 😛

  • ???

    the palletes seems pretty~ love the blue and the rose

    but i doubt it will be anytime soon in malaysia >_< which is one of the worst thing around. new items from Japan are either never released in malaysia or they get so delayed till the newer batches of items are released, then only they release the previous ones. grrrr!!! regards,

  • Ethereal Prey

    I totally want this now! Since I need help in the eye makeup dept being that i am asian and have a monolid so yeah those pics do help in where to apply shadow…thanks for letting us know about this!

  • Bliss

  • the Muse

    hiya helly!!!!!!!!!

    Aw thanks! 😉 I’ll stick them in my hair and dance about 😉

    I love her too. I like when they do feature makeup on her in the mags 😉 she’s a natural beauty 😉

    I sadly don’t take good care of my nails 🙁 I’m a biter! I bite them down to the core hehe. Bad Muse!

    So I’ll be skipping on the nail varnish but def want the palettes myself 😉

    Oh do upload I wanna see I wanna see 🙂

    I got a few blackhead removers from Japan myself and was clueless how to work ’em too hehe! Lucky a close friend of mine was able to read the instructions!

    See my silver powder review! This ACTUALLY kinda worked for me!

    Love ya 😉 *hugs*

  • the Muse

    hi ???!!!!!!!

    I know sigh 🙁 Takes ages to get to you. But at least it’s something to look forward to!

    Sniff! Have you tried ordering online? Maybe quicker!

  • the Muse

    hi Ethereal Prey!

    You’re most welcome! My pleasure 🙂 I find that Japanese (and other asian brands) are very user friendly with the cool simple instructions for application!!!!! This is one reason I really love Japanese cosmetics.
