Candy Doll チークカラー ストロベリーピンク & マシュマロパープル ハイライト


先週末、私は新しいキャンディドールチークカラー ピーチピンクを探していましたが、 チークカラーのストロベリーピンクとマシュマロパープルハイライトしか手に入れる事が出来ませんでした。キャンディードールはポップティーン雑誌の人気モデル益若つばさのポイントメイキャップシリーズで、リップグロス、コンシーラー、フェイスパウダーがあります(彼女のドーリーウィンクは、つけまつ毛とアイライナーのシリーズです)。

Last weekend, I went in search the new Candy Doll Cheek Color Peach Pink but was only able to acquire the Cheek Color in Strawberry Pink and the Marshmallow Purple Highlight. Candy Doll is the popular Popteen magazine model Tsubasa Masukawa's point makeup line which includes lip glosses, concealers and face powders. (Her Dolly Wink line is devoted to false eyelashes and eyeliner.)


チークカラーはとても発色が良く、ストロベリーピンクは明るくて若々しい色で、西洋人形の可愛いピンク色をしたほっぺたにそっくりです。パウダーはマットですが、肌に馴染ませると微かな輝きがあります。また非常に柔らかくて、軽い感じがします。ストロベリーピンクは仕事向きかどうかハッキリとは言えませんが、ある程度の年齢を過ぎた女性向けのブラッシュの色ではないという事は確かです(新色のピーチピンクの方が万人向けです)。

The Cheek Color is very pigmented and Strawberry Pink is a bright, youthful shade that does indeed resemble the dainty pink cheeks of a porcelain doll. The powder is mostly matte but has a subtle shine when blended into the skin. It is also very soft and feels very light. I am not sure if Strawberry Pink is a work-appropriate shade but it is definitely not the right shade of blush for women of a certain age. (The new blush, Peach Pink, is much friendlier.)


マシュマロパープル ハイライトはラメが少し入っており、クリーミーな質感です。ストロベリーピンクの上から、もしくは混ぜ合わせて使うと、ピンク色を柔らかくし、頬にパーリーなエアブラシ感を与え、人形の様なクオリティに仕上げてくれます。でも、ストロベリーピンクをマシュマロパープルと一緒に使った時とそうでない時との違いは非常に僅かなものです。ただ、もしストロベリーピンクの購入を決めたのであれば、ハイライターも購入する事を考えた方が良いと思います。個人的に、マシュマロパープルだけではハイライターとしての働きは微か過ぎると思いますので、ブラッシュと混ぜて使うのであればオススメします。

The Marshmallow Purple Highlight has a dash of shimmer and a creamy texture. When used over or mixed with the Strawberry Pink blush, it softens the pink shade and gives the cheeks a pearly air-brushed and doll-like quality. The differences between Strawberry Pink with the highlighter and without Marshmallow Purple are very subtle, however. But I do think you should consider purchasing the highlighter if you decide to get your hands on Strawberry Pink. Alone, I think Marshmallow Purple is too subtle to work well as a highlighter and only recommend it if you plan to mix it with a blush.


私は何枚かスウォッチ(色見本)の写真を撮りましたが、ストロベリーピンクがどれだけ発色が良く明るいかを捉えることが出来ませんでした。スウォッチの上がストロベリーピンクとマシュマロパープルを混ぜ合わせた物で、下にあるのがストロベリーピンクのみです。キャンディードールのウェブサイトに載っているブラッシュをつけた益若つばさの写真は、肌に付けた時のチークの色がどのような感じかを的確に示した写真だと思います。チークカラーとマシュマロパープル ハイライターはどちらも1,260円(税込み)です。

I did take some photos of swatches but they do not capture just how pigmented and bright Strawberry Pink is. The swatch on the top is Strawberry Pink with Marshmallow Purple and the swatch on the bottom is just Strawberry Pink. I think the photo of Tsubasa wearing the blush on the Candy Doll website is a very accurate representation of what the cheek color looks like on the face. Both the Cheek Color and the Highlight Marshmallow Purple are 1,260 yen each (including tax).

En, have you tried the Cream Cheek blush from Canmake? How do you think they compare to the ones from Candy Doll?

If I'm not mistaken, there are two LE shades out for the Canmake ones right?

I asked in your pupe if it was to bright, but now I have my answer. It looks great, and I saw some runway make up with pink cheek and it looks great.
And the name of the brand is great.

Kisses En!

Everytime I see pink, I see the JS Xmas Coffret....I. must. get. 6_6

Sorry, I took too much anti-histamine. I realize that you take very professional, beautiful photos of your products in your reviews. Lighting, background, everything is perfect. Which is why I must come back and have a look see.

I like doll-face, and this pink blush does just the trick. But I'm breaking out and blush really doesn't look good when I'm packing on the foundation :Z

I hope to see your mysterious face show up on the blog one day! (with the rockin purple Anna Sui lipstick) +^~^

Fantastic blog! It's wonderful that you review in two languages. It'd be great if I could read both, and see the difference if any. :)

Blair,
Thank you for commenting. I haven't had a chance to check out the cream blushes from Canmake but although the Candy Doll highlighter has a creamy texture, the Candy Doll blushes/face powders are all pressed-powders. The Canmake blushes have been the 2nd most popular item on @cosme for a while so it sounds like they're really great.

Melissa,
Thank you for commenting. I love the name of the brand, too!

Thank you for commenting. I hope the post helped.

Robolegojupiter,
Thank you for commenting. I'm still trying to get used to my camera and I still don't know what half the settings are for, teehee.

kuri♥ayu,
Thank you for commenting. I wish the swatches were a little more accurate. The blush is much deeper in person.

miss wiggle,
Thank you for commenting. Chibimaruko-chan is my favorite anime and manga. =)

Utoshi,
Thank you for commenting. I do like the blush although it's a lot more pigmented and deeper than what I usually use.
