Some quick look shots I snapped in the morning before heading off to work. Afterall I did promise to post up a look shot of the Canmake PW16 blush -- basically the orange one.
To jog your memory it's featured on the left in the picture below.
I used it light handedly enough to have it show up as a mild flush in-person though I'm a bit bummed it doesn't translate stronger in pictures. I'm afraid you can't see the blush much so I'll attach 3 pictures and hope at least one of them gives the blush the justice it deserves.

It does not show up strongly since this is a mild color by nature. You can build the intensity up but I opted for a natural look since I was just going to work.
I like the tone of this blush because it works well with and blends in with contouring. Since it's a brighter color, it adds a nice lift to the cheeks, and has a significantly different form of 'bringing life to the face' as compared to pink/red blushes.
I'm not sure how to best describe it but I like that almost artificial yet still natural hint of color on; artificial mainly because noone blushes orange! I would say it's better off labeled as a cheek color as opposed to a blush and I like that soft vibrancy orange blushes give!
Here's a strong and blended out swatch of the Canmake blush.
Quite odd how I got this probably a year ago and am only giving it love right now. Guess makeup really is about re-discovering what you have in a different time and appreciating it again. There's still hope for the other items chucked at the back of the drawers!
This isn't a look of the day because I can't remember what I had on my eyes and didn't take a close-up eye shot. But if you're wondering about my lip color I was wearing Victoria Secret's Lipstick in Heartbeat, which I received from Sophia (retailtherapy -- thanks Sophia!)
Perfect lipstick shade for my orange blush obsession right now!
Are you in a orangey or coral blush mood these days or have always loved it?
Thanks for reading!
