Get Ready With Me: CANMAKE Summer Tinted Series

Do you love Japanese Makeup Products?

So do I, especially if they come in pretty packaging and have the promise of being a little unusual to use! Introducing more CANMAKE products from their latest launch, I created a video of how I incorporate the products to create an everyday makeup look with overly flushed cheeks!






 Here's a quick swatch of the shades and texture of the products, and my personal thought on them:

Wink Glow Eyes 
Contains pretty shimmers in them that also works in adding that additional radiance to the eyes, cheeks, and lips (if you use them they way I do it in my video).
Dries off quickly without budging, but do note that a little goes a long way with this product!


Stay-On Balm Rouge Tint

Adds a very natural colour to the lips, and I love how hydrating it is.
Perfect for a soft sultry look, and the colour is buildable.

Cream Cheek Tint

Has a balm-ish texture that offers quite a lasting flush on the skin but in Singapore's climate, do take note to remove this product properly before sleep!
Comes with a small circle sponge inside for application, using a sponge helps to build the colour up!

Eyebrow Tint Jelly
The best way to use this is to scrape off as much product from the applicator wand as possible and the idea here is to tint the area with sparse hair to darken it for a more natural finish.
Tint stays on for hours, regardless of how hot and humid the weather can be but removes easily with makeup remover!

Quick Airy Eyebrow
Works great together with the Eyebrow Tint Jelly, and as with the paired product, scrape off some product before applying it onto the brows for better application and control.

Here's the finished look!

As one of the pioneer influencer for Crème Simon, I was invited to be part of this joyous occasion and be the first few to test out their wellness tea collection!

Managing Director of Crème Simon, Felicia Soh, sharing her tips to a more radiant, slim and hydrated face using Crème Simon Popular Products, like the Demo-Hydrating Toner Mist featured here!

 NEW IMPROVEMENTS ON EXISTING PRODUCT

I am also glad to share that after receiving reviews from Beauty Influencers and the consumer market, Crème Simon went to relook into how to further improve the product that they have!

I've been informed that the formulation of their Micellar Water Makeup Remover has been improved due to feedbacks that the Micellar Water would sting if it enters the eyes. So with that new found knowledge, I put the theory to the test and I'm glad to report back that it really doesn't sting!

K-Palette: 1 Day Tattoo Lasting Eyebrow Tint [Sponsored Review]

Hi Ladies, have you heard?
K-Palette has released the newest addition to their 1 Day Tattoo series, 1 Day Tattoo Lasting Eyebrow Tint!


Transform your brows from sparse to lush or shorten your makeup routine with K-Palette Lasting Brow Tint, follow the trending eyebrow tint to create full and natural-looking brows that will last for days!

TO USE:
Apply:
Start with a clean, bare face. Following your desired brow shape, apply a generous amount of tint following the hair grain. Remove any stray tint with a damp cotton bud.

Leave It On:
The tint may dry up in 5 minutes. It’s recommended to leave on for a minimum of 2 hours for the tint to last longer. Leave overnight for optimal results that last up to a week!

Peel Off:
Gently peel off the brow tint from the start of the brows. In the case of residue, simply remove with warm water. The eyebrow tint stays on the skin’s outer layer and will naturally fade as the skin regenerates.


VERDICT

Texture: Gum-like gel

Features:
Made in Japan for quality assurance.
Brush made from the Kumano prefecture, famed for their traditional brush craftsmanship
Infused with moisturising beauty essences for eyebrow skincare
Comes in 3 different shades, designed to tint for a week

After a week, everything has pretty much faded.
Only the start of the brow has some tint.
Cost: $23 ($22.34 on Beauty Carousel)

Product Rating: 8/10
This product does what it claims, I didn't have to do much with my brows after the tinting. The only thing was that towards the later part of the week (after 3 days), it starts to fade and it ends up patchy so I had to touch up quickly in the morning by filling them in with an eyebrow powder.

With 3 different shades, the colour of the shade does affect how the brows look for the initial 3 days but after that, it will all fade to a similar shade of brown like the 01 Light Brown shade. For best result, leave it on overnight. However, if you are new to such products, I recommend testing it out by leaving it on for 2 hours so that it won't last as long.

Top: 03 Mocha Brown; Middle: 02 Natural Brown; Bottom: 01 Light Brown
I highly recommend all users to have well-groomed brows to use this product so that it will be easier to apply it and for the best results. I mean it will look weird if you have messy brows with stray hairs and a well defined tinted shape! 

If you are new to most makeup, with zero skills, I would advise getting a girlfriend to do this for you. If you have some basic knowledge and skills, then I would advise going free-hand with this product and not to use the stencil provided, it is much easier and less messy!

My Tip to using this:
1) Keep brows well-groomed before tinting
2) Draw free hand, do not use the stencil
3) Press down onto skin when applying so that it doesn't end up patchy
4) Remove any mistakes quickly with a cotton bud soaked with remover
5) Less is always more, it's easier to correct if things are underdrawn rather than overdrawn!]

Hope these help, and if you have tried this out yourself, let me know how it was for you!

CReeR Cleansing Water and CReeR Cleansing Water [Oil In] promise to cut short your daily makeup cleansing regime with just one step! Paraben-free, alcohol-free and sting-free, CReeR Cleansing Water and CReeR Cleansing Water [Oil In] are formulated with Makeup Catching Micelles with Negative Ion and Japan Shimane Prefecture Hot Spring Water that will dissolve your makeup so gently and thoroughly it leaves no residue behind!



WHAT ARE THE KEY FUNCTIONS?

You may also use CReeR Cleansing Water as a Cleansing Toner on busy mornings!

* I personally would still rinse it off and end off with my normal skincare regime.

Cost: $13.90 ($12.90 if you purchase from here!)

Product Rating: 8/10

As a quick cleanser for lazy days, the CReeR Cleansing Water works really well. I was impressed by the dirt that was lifted up and how visible it was on the cotton pad.

As for its makeup removal abilities, I tested the CReeR Cleansing Water [Oil In] out on one of my stronger/ more stubborn foundation, waterproof mascara and eyeliner, and a blush tint that would stain slightly after application.

Just note to shake the CReeR Cleansing Water [Oil In] properly first before dispensing some on a cotton pad, you will notice that it turns into a milky solution. With the first swipe, I ran the cotton pad across the left side of the back of my hand and immediately, it picked up most of the makeup with the exception of the mascara.


With the second swipe, I ran the same cotton pad across the right side of the back of my hand, and this time round, everything (including the eyeliner) was picked up immediately. And with the third swipe, I ran it across the whole surface of the back of my hand and everything was removed.


So for that, it scored really high on my ranking board because out of all the micellar water I've tried, this is the most effective when it comes to removing makeup effortlessly and quickly, especially the mascara! The best part of it was that it was done with just a cotton pad.

So a little goes a long way with these cleansing water, to remove all traces of makeup! That being said, how I go about using these products is that I will start off removing my makeup with the CReeR Cleansing Water [Oil In] first, followed by a second cleanse with the CReeR Cleansing Water, and end it off with a gentle oil cleanser because I personally don't like leaving micellar water on my face. I'm not comfortable with the idea of chemicals left on my skin, it's either just water or natural ingredients. Because I do spot some ingredients in the list that are things that I'm personally not comfortable with.

If you do feel the same way, then I suggest using this as a quick makeup removal routine but always follow up with rinsing it off or to end it with a skincare regime that replenishes the skin and protects with natural ingredients!

If you are fine with it, then be comforted to know that this micellar water dries off rather nicely on the skin with no icky sticky sensation and it is one of the better micellar water I've tested over the years!
