At first, I thought orange blush was cute but not something I could or would use. I felt it was designed for the golden tones of tanned girls, and that the color would stand out in a strange way against my very white skin. But then I began thinking "I have red hair, and orange might look good with my hair color since they are both warm colors". After that point I got curious about trying orange blush.
Canmake Cream Cheek #4 Vitamin Orange
After using the Dollywink blush and being very impressed with it, I wanted to try their orange blush but I was nervous about outlaying that much cash on something that could potentially be very wrong haha. I had seen Canmake's cream cheek blush around the blog world a bit, and it's about half the price of Dollywink blush. So I decided to try that.
The packaging of Canmake cream cheek blush is very simple, there is no outer cardboard box, the plastic case is very cute however and looks like a little jewel. There is no applicator brush included because as a cream based blush, this item is best applied using your hands.

The consistency of the blush is indeed very creamy, it's soft and easy to pick up on your finger. However it absorbs quickly into your skin, so it does not create a highly pigmented look when applied. I actually apply 2 or more layers to get that right orangy hue.
I heard that it's difficult to blend Canmake cream cheek blush, but I didn't have much trouble with that. I just used small amounts, stopping to blend for awhile, and then applying another thin layer. Building up the color and shaping it in increments seems to work well enough.

I was very pleased with my purchase, and I would recommend it. It's not nearly as bold as Dollywink blush, but for my light skin tone I think that worked in my favor. I really liked the color, and I think the quality is quite good for the price. I had an easy time using it, and it creates a very cute/different look compared to the typical pinkish blushes^^
Wow, I was just looking at prices for imported Canmake cream cheek blush, and it's more than double the original price... But if you can find it for a good price, you should check it out!
