Hello from the Project Vanity team! Thanks for dropping by.

Canmake Cheek Brush

I don't know why exactly but Japan is on my mind these last few days. I've been obsessively checking flights, hotels, and the weather on my preferred dates. Honestly I'm starting to feel a wee bit crazy. Why now, why so suddenly? It's like an urge that just dropped down my gut.

I'm trying to convince my parents to go with me this year, but if that doesn't happen I will most likely go by myself. Is this what they call lovesickness? Well. I suppose so!

In any case, here's a little piece of Tokyo for us: the Canmake Cheek Brush (P600)! This is part of the brand's Spring collection and I'm loving it. Not as a blush brush but as a - wait for it - foundation brush. It's the perfect shape and density for applying liquid foundations and BB creams.

Don't let that cute, toy-like design fool you. This is a crazy soft brush with fine synthetic bristles! It's quite small yes but it's about the same size as the Shiseido Perfect Foundation Brush. They work pretty much the same way except this is only 600 bucks. ;)

The main difference between the two would be the density and size. Shiseido has more solidly-packed bristles while Canmake has a looser, fluffier brush head. It's also slightly bigger and rounder than Shiseido's.

Like I mentioned above, this is a great tool for liquid bases, but you can definitely use it for powder blushes and foundations too. It's also ideal for cream blushes, especially ones that have a hard, semi-solid texture and sheer pigmentation. 

What don't I like about this? Well, it has white bristles so it looks messy pretty quickly, but then again it's a good reminder to clean it after every couple uses. :) I don't mind since it's easy enough to wash.

Overall, I highly recommend the Canmake Cheek Brush if you're looking for something to precisely apply your wet makeup. It works for powders too but admittedly not as well as for liquid. :) Try it if you like cute tools, because honey, they don't get cuter than this!

You can find Canmake inside Somera Glorietta 2, Digital Traincase in Ortigas, and Glamourbox.ph.
