Canmake Cream Cheek Review

A while ago I was really liking super pale pink cheeks and these blushes are perfect for that look.

I think there are 12 shades to choose from. The 2 I have are 01 Peach Dream and 08 Marshmallow Pink. I got mine off ebay.

L to R: 01 Peach Dream, 08 Marshmallow Pink

These blushes are really easy to apply. I just use my ring finger and gently dab the product on my cheek then blend away. You have to be careful not to apply too much though since they are quite pigmented. After applying these I apply my face powder on top. This makes the blush look super natural.

Overall a really nice cream blush. But sometimes it gets annoying since you have to clean your finger after applying it.

Oh I forgot to mention but I have heard that you can use these cream blushes as lip colours. But they seem too dry to apply on the lips so I just use them as blush.

Korean Lipstick Review: Holika holika, Tony Moly

I have always liked Asian lipsticks over the western brands since they tend to be lighter and sheerer with a more glossy finish. I find that Korean lipsticks are quite affordable and also really high quality.

I like Tony Moly and Holika Holika lipsticks better than the Etude House ones that I have tried because they are more moisturising and the colour selection is better (I like sheer nude pinks and peaches).

The lipsticks I will be reviewing today are:

Holika Holika Heart Ful Moisture Lipstick - Baby Beige

This one comes in a super cute metallic pink tube and an even cuter heart shaped bullet. When I first got this it was too pretty to use haha. The colour is the typical pink beige. It's not quite as moist or glossy as I usually like. But it's not bad I guess..

Holika Holika Face to Change Sheer Lipstick

I LOVE this lipstick. It is so glossy and sheer <3

I got 2 colours BR504 Smokey Pink and PK120 Glory Pink.

My favourite is the BR504 because it is such a natural everyday colour. The PK120 I don't like as much since there doesn't seem to be much colour. On my lips it just looks like sparkles :(

These apply really smoothly and feels like lip balm on the lips. But since its so smooth and light it tends to slip and slide if I apply too many layers.

L to R: PK120, BR504
 Tony Moly Prestige Lipstick Glossy

I don't remember the name of the colour since it is in Korean but it is number 02. This is a sheer coral peach colour and going by the name it is super glossy. Right up my alley. The only thing I don't like about this is the packaging since the tube clicks open which I find annoying. Also it is a bit bulky.

 Tony Moly Berryberry Lovely Stick - PKLS02

At first I didn't like this one because it makes me look really ghostly white. For some reason mid tone pinks just look awful on me. But I found that if I just apply a light layer of this my lips look really youthful and moisturised. This also smells fruity which I like.

Tony Moly Prestige Crystal Lipstick- 01 Muse Pink

I absolutely hate this lipstick. I bought it online and looked like a natural peach colour. But when applied on my lips it is a bright barbie pink. The formula is also quite dry and not moisturising at all.
