Canmake’s Late Summer Release: Sunset Beauty

While most Japanese brands are busy releasing and selling Fall Collections, Canmake’s released a late Summer Collection entitled Sunset Beauty. I recently reviewed Canmake’s Spring Collection and wasn’t too pleased with the eye quads I had purchased so I think I’ll be steering clear of this collection.

Canmake has taken a note from Lavshuca and has yet again revamped it’s eye shadow packaging. They are taking the quad business very seriously lately and have released three new multitasking eye shadow palettes with the collection entitled Color Stripe Palette. I was delighted to see that the applicator is a dual end which has a brush on one side and a sponge applicator on the other side. Hey, sue me, I get excited about the little stuff in life! The palettes do sport a bronze look to them but you can easily take these looks well into the Fall season with you. As you may have noticed I mentioned these were multitasking that’s because you can use each quad as an eyeshadow, highlighter, and blusher.

Although I won’t be indulging in these palettes since I was burned with the Spring Collection my eye did roam over to the new Pop n’ Jelly Gloss shades. I generally like Canmake’s glosses plus the price is nice as well!

I know many of you have expressed a keen disdain for Canmake but I normally like many of the items in the catalog as the price is really nice and the quality isn’t too bad. I could see myself indulging in the glosses but I think the quads are a no go!

The Color Stripe Palettes are 880 yen each and the glosses are 540 yen.

Want the collection?

Love it?

Not much of a Canmake fan?

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.

    Hey muse,
    in response to the BB mauve post, I decided not to get the palette, sadly. It cost $60CAD here and that’s before the 14% tax yikes! so I found another substitute, the Aube Jewellery Shower Eyes in #31. Which I think either you or Rouge Deluxe has, I can’t remember. I think I rather get that than take a risk at buying the BB palette only to let the lipcolor collect cobwebs. However, the gel liners I still want haha. My next pay will never make it into my savings now haha. The Canmake collection looks so cute, but then I’ve used one of their single eyeshadows before and it has no staying power at all. That girl on the Canmake website (Lena) is EVVVERRRYWHEERRREE, in a bunch of Japanese magazine mainly, and also some new clothing ads that I saw in Hong Kong. wow.

    Hi The Muse,

    Thanks for commenting on my blog. I had a minor freak out this morning since I found out it was really you who stopped by! You know I’ve been reading your blog for a long time. You have a very unique voice and blogging persona.

    Too bad I can’t get any of the Asian makeup anymore since I don’t live anywhere near a Korean town. Back in the day, I used to get some really awesome Korean and Japanese makeup but I think the people who sold jacked up the price.

    This week and this week only, my blog will run a full week on mineral makeup. Please come back if you’re interested.

    hi there millie!

    eep that’s really a silly price! ๐Ÿ™ It’s expensive here too but wih the taxes and such your side it’s just insane ๐Ÿ™

    If you still lem it give a yell and I’d be happy to cp!

    Hoooray! Both iris (rouge deluxe) and I both adore Shower Eyes!

    the lipcolors are quite workable…not too bad at all. I thought I might feel the same way about them but I liked ’em!

    But…you’ll be happier with the Aube. It’s much better! Shimmery and yum!

    I want the liners too hehe.

    They look great but I’m a bit scared as the Spring was terrible. ๐Ÿ˜›

    I’d have done the same thing but now that I’m burned I think I’ll skip hehe.

    hello muse!
    i’ve always loved your reviews because they’re so honest and accurate, plus i have a similar skin type and i’ve found that products that work for you are generally my favourites too! i know that you’re not a fan of bronzers.. i just wondered what you think about contour powders, and if you’ve tried the canmake shading powders in particular. love to hear your opinion ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Katie
