For as long as I can remember I have been obsessed with all things Japanese. I love their culture, their food and their values. Despite my deep love for Japan I have never actually tried any Japanese cosmetics which now that I think about it is kind of silly. I mean my other love is beauty so why did I not think to combine the two in the past? Well, I did and I tell you what I do not regret it!
Canmake is a cute Japanese cosmetic company! They make the cutest looking products that are actually really good! I find that Japanese beauty focuses more on the natural side with lots of pinks, peaches and shimmers to naturally enhance your features. I tried the Canmake stay-on balm.
Canmake Stay-on Balm
With the Canmake stay-on balm being my first experience into Japanese beauty I have to say I found it very unique. It’s a lip balm that is pigmented. Unlike most western pigmented lip balms that have a slight barely noticeable colour that fades super fast, the can make stay-on blam is very pigmented!
Not only does it provide much-needed moisture and UV protection to lips (which is a must) but it allows for that beautiful makeup finish. I like how its essential skincare or should I say lip care that’s makeup!
Let’s talk about their packaging. UHG IT IS SO CUTE. I love the fact that it’s so bright and happy with a beautiful floral pattern that reflects each shade. Unlike western products which focus more on a sleek luxury packaging, I like how this packaging has its own cute personality!
The lip balm itself comes in the classic wind up, cream bullet for easy application. I prefer when lip balms come in a cream bullet form rather than in a pot or the squeezy applicators. I find this way I won’t apply too much.
I was really surprised that this lip balm had no smell. Looking so bright and colourful I just assumed that it would have a strong smell but I was wrong! I sort of have mixed feelings about products that have smells. I personally prefer if they don’t have any smell but if they have a slight smell that’s okay. I feel as if products that have no smell work better. Why do I think that I’m not sure?
What really surprised me is how many shades that there were. There are 9 beautiful shades mainly in the pink/peach spectrum but there are a few purple-pink colours. The shade that I have is flowery princess which might I just add what a cute name! Most of the names are floral related and I think that is super cute.
How much do you think that Japanese cosmetics would be? I personally assumed that they would be quite expensive but I was surprisingly wrong. I got this though W cosmetics which is a lovely store that is both online and Located in Brisbane that stocks all the best Japanese and Korean beauty brands!
Not only do they have a wide range, they are super affordable. This lip balm was only $15AUD which is so cheap! For the quality of it, I was blown away! You can get it here.
The results of this lip blam are breathtaking. Not only is the colour AMAZING but they instantly make my lips feel soft. I also really like how they give your lips a slightly glossy shine which I think make my lips look plumper.
What made me giggle was on the W cosmetics website, under the description it says that this lip balm will satisfie even the most demanding women and I can certainly say it would! It has so many natural ingredients that are amazing for you like jojoba oil, olive oil, rosehip oil, grapeseed oil, macadamia nut oil, pomegranate oil.
I seriously recommend you give this a go! I give this a 5/5.
That’s all from me.
Until next time xxx
