Canmake Shimmer Jelly Eyes Swatches

I couldn’t resist the allure of Japanese Brand, Canmake Shimmer Jelly Eyes for long.

I picked up two shades….

Did I need them? Probably not but they were so pretty!

Here’s a look!

Sugar Milk Tea and Caramel Chocolate

Review on the way!

Whatcha think?

I’m loving the Sugar Milk Tea shade best!

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.

      i had a friend pick them up for me in tokyo lemony but they are all over the internet. I paid $8-$9 each I believe but Internet they are around $12-$13. Check out Alphabeautyuk on Ebay I believe she has them!

    Sugar Milk Tea is awesome! I’ve been wanting to try the Canmake blushes for such a long time 🙁

  • mei

    sugar milk tea!
    looks as SWEET as the name itself.
    i like earth tones, but caramel choco looks a bit too dark for my liking.
    let us know the review soon musie! if it’s good i might just go grab the sugar milk tea! (:

    Love the shade Sugar Milk Tea and love the name too! No one does milk tea like Japan…and Malaysia…and anywhere else there are Asian peeps I guess… 🙂 Can’t wait to see how it wears on your lids! FOTD PLEEZ!

    • sherlock

  • dark nyx

    Sugar Milk Tea looks like love in a tube. Can’t wait for the review!

  • Abs

    Speaking of Japanese products, last week I picked up a bottle of Softymo’s Hyaluronic Acid Makeup Cleansing & Facial Foam. Have you tried it? I really like it!

    • the Muse

      aha funny I was going to review it today abs LOL! great minds think alike! It’s a nice one ;-D

        • the Muse

          aw my pleasure SO odd you mentioned it b/c I was just taking pics of it last night before I headed to bed for today’s review ;-D

  • midori

    I didn’t know that Canmake started doing cream eyeshadow …one more thing to look out for when I go home. Also am interested in Addiction’s version as well…have you ever tried the brand Muse?

    • the Muse

      yeah, they have a whipped mousse one as well for Summer. I haven’t tried addiction but those eye lacquers look amazing…did you see the red one!?

      • midori

        Yes! That’s what caught my eye first. I normally can’t do power eyeshadow red but I might try this one…addiction magic might do its wonders : ) I’m looking forward to swatching that color.

        • the Muse

          have you tried any of the addiction line yet? I’ve been kinda sorta tempted but the shades haven’t always caught my attention until now…! I wish I can swatch before I buy :-/ but I think it’ll be a winner either way maybe with a little black liner ;-D

          • midori

            I have a few eyeshadows (one of my favorites), blushes and have tried quite a few products by stalking the counters 🙂 The star products are supposed to be the eyeliners, but I never caved because they don’t have refills. They are super soft and glides easily, though.
            I’m going home this summer; would you like me to send you some swatches as a reference then; )?

          • the Muse

            hey again! Are you from Japan? curious minds ;-D I’d love some swatched that would be brilliant. I dunno why but the brand never caught my attention until seeing those eye lacquers ;-D

  • midori

    Yep, I’m originally a Tokyo girl : )
    I understand, though…I wasn’t into the brand when it first launched but it gradually became one of my favorites. Seems that I need to convert you ; )

    • the Muse

      that’s awesome, where do you live now full time? Def…! convert away ;-D It’s hard b/c promo images look boring but seeing the shades in photos on blogs and suddenly things get tempting ;-D! did you see the new lavshuca sets? little uneventful but ended up purchasing the natural shade one out of curiosity ;D!

  • midori

    Currently In the big apple 🙂 I don’t like the promo pictures either, especially the autumn/winter collection of last year but I ended up getting most of the eyeshadows. I’d certainly recommend believing the blog photos; )
    I’ve just checked the new collection! I like the look of the natural one, too…kind of reminds of me of Magie Deco’s Maple Sugar quint.

    • the Muse

      you are? we should have lunch or din! le sigh magie deco! I wish it wasn’t so costly! i like the natural one too ;-D I agree, b/c seriously those promo images look so damn dull ;D! anything else you’re lemming from Japan this Summer? when was the last time you were home and how long have you lived in NY?

  • midori

    Would LOVE to have lunch or din with you!
    My lemming list is: Three quads, Est quads, and the shu uemura summer collection…the list goes on. I’m thankful that Lunasol doesn’t interest me this year. I’m afraid of looking at AQ MW because of the prices (Magie Deco is expensive enough!).
    I haven’t been in New York for so long yet, and I make annual visits to Japan.

    • the Muse

      SUPER! email me? I’m a little swamped all through May but June would be fab…I have another reader too, Diana, maybe we can all meet up for a little girl’s night out. I had NO idea you were in New York! funny.

      not too bad a list ;-D I don’t think I saw SU Summer yet..or have I? I haven’t been keeping up with the line lately…I did recently purchase the lucent whitening base though. How do you like NY? Imagine you’re right at home, not as many people as Tokyo though ;-D I thought I knew city life until I visited Tokyo, I was shell shocked!

      • midori

        Will e-mail you today : ) !
        I’m loving NYC so far, and it is in some ways similar to Tokyo so it was easy to settle in ; )

        • the Muse

          brilliant looking forward to it!!!!!!!!!!! ;-D aw I’m happy to hear that!

          • Angel

            Ok muse, now the two of you have me obsessed with that Addiction eye lacquer in red!!! I need it! Any idea where I can buy it online??

          • the Muse

            hey angel I hear ya ;-D sadly, no shops have it yet, hasn’t launched, believe the launch is June 2nd?

  • plue

    why does it reminds of Jill Stuart? the packaging I mean 🙂

  • Tiffany Martin

    OMG sugar milk tea looks amazing! I bet that would make grey/blue eyes just pop. Super adorable!
