Inexpensive Beauty Find: Canmake Liquid Shadow & Base

Canmake isn't really on top of my Japanese favorites list but they release really nice products from time to time.

A little item in their line caught my eye though - the Liquid Shadow & Base in 03 Baby Beige. I purchased it even though I didn't like Canmake's previous cream shadows (the one in the heart-shaped bottle).

The Liquid Shadow & Base comes in a cute little tube with a standard doe-foot applicator just like you're used to from most lipglosses.
I picked the color #03 Baby Beige as it looked perfect for a subtle nude eye look and a good color to use as a base for all eyeshadow colors.

The Liquid Shadow & Base is REALLY nice! It's indeed more of a liquid than a cream and feels cool when you apply it. It spreads easily and dries down to a crease-free finish so it stays on all day without fading and melting off.

I really love the color and gorgeous glistening finish of this product. The color is a nude beige with a metallic finish. In addition the whole liquid is full of super fine silver micro-glitters so the result is a pretty sparkling but natural eye look.

According to Canmake it's important to shake the shadow before application. To use it as a base use one thin layer, to use as a shadow color use 2 layers to make it show up better.

I think 2 layers are ideal to create the perfect eye look. Pigment is quite good and the formula doesn't get clumpy or gross when you layer it.

All in all for 735 Yen (about US$8) this is a really lovely item. I paid US$12.50 from Ichibankao and think it was totally worth that.
