Review for Canmake Shading Powder in 01

Review for Canmake Shading Powder in 01

I’ve decided to do a review on Canmake’s Shading Powder in 01. I bought it quite long ago, about 3 months ago? For those who are not familiar with Canmake, it is a Japanese brand that is available in Japan, Taiwan, Korea and Singapore. I bought it after watching Stylesuzi’s video about contouring in which she used the same shading powder. It looked so amazing on her I told myself I have to get it the next day! I use the shading powder for contouring my face, nose and use it as an eyeshadow.



The shading powder is not too dark for my fair skin which happens to a lot of contouring powders and bronzers. It can double up as an eyeshadow which I really like to do on days when I don’t want to wear eyeshadows yet have slight depth in my eyelids. Lasting power is around 4-5 hours. It comes with a small brush which I don’t use. The powder is matte, absolutely no shimmer at all which is a huge plus since I dislike shimmers on my face. Plastic compact container is not flimsy, opens and locks really well. The shading powder applies on very smoothly, very blendable and buildable for a dense eyeshadow.


This shading powder does fade over time (quite quickly actually), I was hoping it not to lose vibrancy that fast so I was quite disappointed. So do take note that the colour lightens in a short span of time. Has a very mild powdery scent which I think will not irritate the nose unless you are extremely sensitive to smell.

Yadda Yadda:

Canmake Shading Powder is available at Watsons, John Little, BHG and SaSa. I bought mine at Watsons for S$22.90 (approx). Will I repurchase? Probably not, if there are other better and cheaper alternatives. Ratings: 3.5/5 stars. There are sales at Watsons that has 20% discount for the shading powder so do try them and tell me your opinion!




  1. a great product but like you have mentioned, being a bit on the dark side, its not for me.

    Hello! yes agreed, the shading powder can look very muddy on me so i mainly use it for contouring my eyes and nose. :)
