Cream Cheek, Canmake’s latest offering, has all the makings of a drugstore makeup star. It is not only affordable and compact, it also performs well and will satisfy a picky cream blush lover with its performance. Pigmented and smooth, it is easily comparable to similar higher-end products.
Cream Cheek is so popular locally that the displays at various Watsons stores have been emptied of many colours. This demand for them has no doubt been stoked by Iris‘s and Yumeko‘s positive reviews. ;) Thankfully, I was able to find the entire range at Watsons Parkway Parade (just look at the smeary display!).
Priced at S$17.90, they are now on offer at S$15.90 (I paid S$13.90 for mine using my Watsons Card rebate points). I hesitated between 01 Peach Dream and 03 Strawberry Whip but the latter proved to be too shimmery for me, so I eventually decided on the more muted former.
With a diameter that measures only 4.5 cm, Canmake Cream Cheek is a petite and extremely light product. The packaging may feel cheap and insubstantial but the almost toy-like plastic faceted casing belies a pigmented product that wears and applies well.
