WHY I LIKE THIS PRODUCT
This is my first time using any cosmetics items from Canmake and I don’t love this particular product. The highlight colour is really nice but I find that the other two colours are only okay. It’s not as pigmented as I had hoped and the colours are not as bright or vivid as what I had imagined them to be. I can only say this for this trio because I haven’t tried any of the only trios from their Glitter Eyes collection. I found that if you wet your brushes, the colours do stay on a little better and there is less fall-out. Here’s a photo of the colours:


As you can see, the colours are not that bright considering I had over 4 layers of shadow on each lid. The only reason that I’ll purchase this item again is for the white highlight colour and for their cute packagings. Otherwise, I think the Maybelline Eyestudio quads are a lot better than this product.

RATING
Product (3/5) – Not extremely pigmented
Cost (5/5) – $7 CAD is pretty affordable for Japana cosmetics
Ease of Use (5/5)
Packaging (4/5)

  • The glittery stuff looks good with your light skin and blue circle lenses. I’m not exactly sure I could rock that, being darker than you.
