Canmake Powder Cheeks PW25 Sugar Orange

Orange blushes may sound scary but it is actually very pretty! I'm showcasing a pinkish orange blush - the LE PW25 Sugar Orange from Canmake's Powder Cheeks range - in this entry because I don't own a true orange.


Name: Canmake キャンメイク Powder Cheeks パウダーチークス PW25 Sugar Orange
Price: RM 34.90
@cosme rating: 4.7
Release date: 5.1.2010


Description: A versatile pinkish-orange that is suitable for all skin types. For a sugar-sweet, cute impression (Source: canmake.com/)

Packaging: It is housed in a clear plastic compact.


The brush is surprisingly soft and non prickly. However, it is on the small side.


Colour: A gorgeous shimmery pink grapefruit colour with silver shimmers.


Natural light


Muted flash


Blurry for the sparkles to show up

Texture: PW25 Sugar Orange is silky and very pigmented. I had it on for well over 8 hours, and it didn't fade at all!

I believe that the Powder Cheeks range is a good basic range to own, as it is reasonably priced, lasts long and it has a nice range of shades to choose from as seen here.

Here are some picture of girls with orange cheeks that I compiled from various Japanese magazines and the hit TV show, 女人我最大 for your viewing pleasure.








Do you like orange blushes?

I agree, orange blush is really pretty. It looks very summery and sunkissed I think^^

Thank you for reviewing this product, it's a very lovely shade! I think the pinkish tone to it makes it more natural. It looks so lovely on you!

Karen said...

Blair, I love your fresh-faced radiant look- so beautiful *_* I think orange/coral blushes are especially great for the summer, thank you for sharing the look! I'm getting ready to go out right now and since I don't have orange.. just dabbed on some peachy coral :)

LS said...

I love Canmake blushes! They are cheap and have a good color payoff!

mandy said...

Orange blushes probably won't look as scary as everyone thinks if used with a light hand (kind of like that scary red NARS blush a youtuber talked about)

That blush looks very nice on you! Maybe it's my monitor but it looks more coral than orange.

Canmake blushes look so pretty! Wish I can find them in the US :\

Catherine said...

Lovely collection of pictures! I especially love the 3rd one! I think Sugar Orange suits you very well too! :D

RicAdeMus said...

As usual it looks better on you than the models. Hope you're having a nice weekend.

Hi blair...Loving your orangey-pink canmake blush...looks so pretty on you...

dblchin said...

This is really pretty!!! Not everyone suits orange orange, is clever of u to use closer a tint of pink to ur colours.

Tammy said...

Awwww you look so cute with the orange-pinky blush! Sometimes I try orange on its own but I think I look not as awake with straight orange blush than I do with something with a pink tone hehe

Darn! I want to pick me up some Canmake blush too!

donnarence said...

i wan to try canmake blushes!!this is so pretty!!

Blovet Beauty said...

Blair! love the color on your cheeks. Complements ur lip tone:)

Jennifer said...

ah Blair! I was swatching their powder cheek blush in an absolutely orange color (forgot the code), and i loved it! i'm lemming it now...lol

i just heard that Canmake is coming out with lipsticks of 4 shades!

Jennifer said...

i guess you're right Blair! I don't know it was released in June, lol its been ages since i last read magazines...but the Canmake counters here announced today =) will u be picking them up?

i picked up their cheek cream yesterday and loved it!

coffretgorge said...

canmake blushers are really nice! :) the shade you picked out works well for your skin tone.

i have the cream cheek blush in orange, i have to try it out to see if it will work for me too! :)

Jennifer said...

i got the cream cheek in 04, a 100% orange color, haha!! i love the texture and it blends smoothly :) u should grab one when they're on sale!

ilyana said...

I love orange blushes!! I've never dared bought a wholly orange blush though, my orange blushes usually have a pink tone to it. Those Japanese models from ViVi are gorgeous and so are you ;D

mayaari said...

your cheeks look lovely with that pop of orange! I love Canmake products :)

Dina (XYYan) said...

The color looks so pretty on you! I want to try them too :D

amynaree said...

i'm loving orange blushes these days as well! i think they are so cute on your cheeks when it's not over done!

Nic Nic said...

wow I think I bought the exact shade for my brother's gf as a gift! Looks sooo pretty on you I hope it looks as pretty on my bro's gf too XD hehe

I didn't walk out with anything yet.. still contemplating about the foundation.. its £50 here!!

Jian said...

aHHHHH BLAIR ITS SO PRETTY.

Actually I'm really tempted to get the Candydoll Orange Carrot blush from Nic Nic's store now...!!!! You've totally converted me..I want some orange blush!!!!

MizzJ said...

Hmm it's an interesting look! I might have to try this, though I'd likely go for a pink-orange like you chose rather than true orange - that requires too much guts!

izumi said...

my orange blush is one by rock&republic.. VERY ORANGE. but it's nice to have and very different for my collection! totally more wearable than i ever imagined. now, as for purple blush...

Shanghainesedumpling said...

Very pretty Blair, I love that colour on you also very natural too :)

Orange blushes are very pretty but I guess it's all about finding the right shade!

MAC had a orange cream blush that I love a while back - it was called Optimistic Orange or something similar!
