Canmake Cream Cheek in 09 Pinky Rose

January 11, 2011

Thanks to Iris, I found out that Canmake has released another cream blush! A limited edition addition to the brand’s Cream Cheek range, 09 Pinky Rose (S$15.90 at Watsons) is a sweet dolly-pink that will work with many of my powder blushes. I like that it has no glittery bits like the pretty but overtly-shimmery 03 Strawberry Whip.

Canmake does pinks very well (I own three of the pinks featured above), so this will be a great addition to my stash! :)

    It’s great to hear that the cream blush does not have the silver glitter bits! I have one but with the glitter…

      Hi JS,

      I think the one you have is probably Strawberry Whip. Get this one too! :)

      Hi Karen,

      Seems like it…to add that healthy anime girl glow? :P I’ll ask Iris about this! :D

    That’s such a pretty colour! Your earlier posts on the Canmake products actually prompted me to take a second look at this brand, and I’ve been buying the cheek colours (both the powders and the creams) in bulk :D

    Thanks for the rec, Mag – it’s so easy to miss the LE stuff of the drugstore brands.

      Hi TUG,

      Cool! I really like many of Canmake blush products. And you have Iris to thank for this post, really – if she hadn’t told me about it, I mightn’t have noticed the blush! :D (I actually found it in an obscure corner on the Canmake display at Watsons Junction 8).

    i don’t buy makeup all that much or on impulse but i grabbed that canmake bright pink cream blush when i tested it and saw that it has NO glittery bits! i love this cream blush range, and you’re right–canmakes do better pinks than peaches; i’ve both and i say pinks over oranges for this brand!

      Hi Stella,

      I love that it isn’t glittery too! Enjoy your new blush. :)

    Karen, here’s Iris’s reply via Twitter:

    “It’s not really the under eye, but the top of the apples of the cheeks for a kawaii look…It says to dot on and then blend by connecting the dots and layer for your preferred intensity.”

    Hope this helps!

    Hello Mag :D

    Now see what you’ve done, my lemmings for the blush are intensified 1000x with your post! NO GLITTER YOU SAY? Awesome I’m gonna get my hands on 2 of these. The 01 / 03 / 08 that I have all sport a minuscule amount of glitter in them and I resorted to putting them on before my LP to minimize the glitterness.

    The Watsons sale will end tmr thus I’m gonna get 05 as well, very nice coral color heh!

      Hi Jolyn!

      Yes – no shimmer at all! It’s a soft, buildable sweet pink. :) There’s no discount on this product but apparently it’s S$2 off S$17.90, making it S$15.90, the original price of the earlier ones.

    I keep swatching the other ones – the “quilted” looking powder blushes from Canmake THANKS TO YOU – cos I’ve seen you use them! :D I was looking for the highlighter version of these Cream Cheeks but haven’t been able to get my hands on one yet :(

      Hi Kas,

      Look for it at obscure Watsons stores. I saw it at the small one near Braddell MRT station.

    Try at Watsons Taka or John Little Stores, you will be able to find the Cream Highlighter.
