CANMAKE Mat Fleur Cheeks 03 Matte Marmalade

Preceding the 'Kawaii'-ness of Glow Fleur Cheeks & Glow Fleur Highlighter, Canmake recently releases another Fall 2014 consists of Mat Fleur Cheeks & Jelly Gloss Stick.

Canmake Mat Fleur Cheeks offers a delicate powdery finish in 3 shades available; 01 Matte Apricot, 02 Matte Girly Rose & 03 Matte Marmalade. It's retailed for Yen 800 (before the tax) and has different engraved flower pattern comparing to Glow Fleur Cheeks. The powder is pressed into a clear plastic case and equipped with a synthetic blush brush. All information are written in Japanese but there's slight of graphic instruction about how-to application. According to Canmake official website:

Note: As you can see, Canmake Mat Fleur Cheeks color is hardly to be seen in the picture (even though I already dust a lottttaaa blusher). However, in the real life, their pigmentation is subtle and soft.

The Mat Fleur Cheeks is a pressed-powder blusher with coral-orange based hue. The texture is chalky and doesn't have neither shimmer nor glitter particles over the swipe. Blusher's pigmentation is subtle in real life (it doesn't showing up in the picture) and doesn't look orange-y comparing to the pan's; in addition, the coral shade of the blush certainly complements warm-based skin tone. It's formulated with moisturizer to create supple yet healthy flush cheek while the white lace-patterned powder in the corner-left of the pan tones-down the vividness of orange color.  Fragrance-free and  lasts for average 4 hours during normal activity. In sum, the Mat Fleur Cheeks range is likewise typical pressed-blusher but with less pigmentation and subtle finish; a perfect personification of Japanese make-up style.

My Verdict?
I never thought that Coral-orange shade will complement me. So,why do I choose the coral-based shade in the first place? The answer is because we need something new for challenging our self. The coral shade is quite striking in the pan but turns more demure when applied. The formula works well on humid weather like in Indonesia and doesn't wear off when you sweat. This product is the contradiction from the Glow Fleur Cheeks which creates a glowy-satin finish while Mat Fleur Cheeks is more on the subtle-matte complexion result. The product's finish is suitable for creating Mori girl style (imo); it creates light-weight and flawless make-up.

Thank you for reading and have a nice (mori-inspired) day! ^^
