review + swatches : Canmake Perfect Stylist Eyes Palette in 06 Gelato Mint

March 1, 2014 No comments

I seem to be on a roll with these beauty-related posts lately! Today I bring you another mini-review (I call them mini-reviews because mine aren't as detailed as most blogs, also not as objective), this time of this cute little palette I got from the CANMAKE Spring / Summer Product Launch, the Perfect Stylist Eyes Palette in 06 Gelato Mint.

The palette, up close. Look at those pretty pastels! As you can tell from the applicator, I've used it quite a bit already!

Swatches on the back of my hand. All of the colors in this palette are shimmery, but the topping jewel seems to be a mix of shimmer + tiny glitters.
Just a thought.. I don't know why the colors don't look as nice as in person! How do beauty bloggers take photos of swatches anyway? ;___;

According to the CANMAKE website, the Perfect Stylist Eyes palette can be used two ways: natural makeup and bright makeup. The natural style color (baby pink) can be used for natural looks, and the bright style color (mint) for more glamorous looks. In my opinion though, since mint is such a fun summery color, you can use it for daytime looks as well.

Following the diagram on the left, I tried doing both the natural and the bright / glamorous looks on myself ↓ ↓ ↓

Natural look. Used only the Perfect Stylist Eyes palette. Wearing GEO Hurricane Grey Lenses from LensVillage.

Bright look. Used the Perfect Stylist Eyes palette + K-Palette Real Lasting black eyeliner.

For both looks, I used CANMAKE's Powder Cheeks in PW05 for my cheeks and a mix of TONYMOLY's Cat Chu Wink Lipstick in Salmon Pink and NYX Round Lipstick in Circe for my lips. I wanted the focus to be on my eyes, so I used a pale pink for both my blush and lip color. Isn't the mint color nice? At first I didn't know how to use it since I normally don't use such bright colors for my eyes (I only ever use neutral colors), so I was quite surprised at myself for liking it! My favorite 'color' is the topping jewel though. I use it all the time now. It makes my eyes look super sparkly!

Overall, it's a pretty good palette. The only thing I don't like about it, I think, is the fallout from the mint color. (I'm not sure if there's fallout from the other colors; if there is I don't think it's very noticeable..) Other than that, this is a really nice palette to have. Also, it's super cute and looks like ice cream (the name of the palette is Gelato Mint after all)! I think that alone is a good enough reason to want to buy this, haha. (I'm looking at you, fairy kei friends!)

The CANMMAKE Perfect Stylist Eyes palette is available online on GlamourboxPH for only PhP620. This particular palette isn't available online though, but don't worry! You can get it at CANMAKE in Somera, Glorietta 2
