I only brought PW24 (bronze shade) with me on a week long trip I took now a week ago back to Phnom Penh, Cambodia to visit my classmates...I'm not into bronzing at all but I thought this would be a nice sheen to the cheeks when applied sheer.
I was completely taken in by how gorgeous it looked sheer and packed onto the cheeks! It's a go-to blush now!
Continue below for close ups, swatches and a FOTD with PW 24!

|Small nylon blush brush included! Fairly dense looking but thin when squeezed (does that make sense?)|
|But unfortunately very small...although it's of excellent quality...this would be useful for highlighting. I like bigger brushes for blush...|
Much like the Canmake Cheek & Cheek blush I've already reviewed here, the packaging is quite standard for most Japanese/Korean cosmetics. In clear plastic that's fairly sturdy, the top can come off but it's made so that it can be clipped back on easily.
I don't have issues with clear plastic, I can see what's inside and because there is no indication in english of how much product there is I can estimate that I'm getting quite a nice deal of product.
It says "Canmake Powder Cheeks" on the lid in a reflecting text which I find cute, the blushes come with small brushes just like the one in the Cheek & Cheek blush duo from them. It's of high quality nylon but they are too small and not dense enough to apply adequate amount of blush in a few strokes.

|PW18 has a lovely satin type finish...great for a naturally flushed look|
|Canmake Powder Cheeks blush in PW 24...a lovely light bronze with a hint of pink...|
|This shade has visible golden shimmer bits but they're very fine...|
|Canmake Powder Cheeks blush in PW 18 & PW 24...just lovely!|
Firstly....as described on the English Canmake website...
PW 18- Apricot Pink (I don't think I'd say it's an 'apricot' pink but it's definitely 'bright' and great for a 'lively look'...I'd called it more of a light raspberry cream pink
PW 24- Caramel Orange (Their description is perfect. It does 'blend' into the skin perfectly and is 'sophisticated and sweet')
These blushes are as if they are made of 'micro-particles', they are so fine and so incredible soft texture wise. Both shades have a satin finish although PW 24 (Caramel Orange) has visible golden shimmer.
They applied very well, smooth and evenly, PW 18 (Apricot Pink) could be made to be very dark with a heavy hand so I buffed out a bit when I used it. Whereas PW 24 (Caramel Orange) is a shade where no matter how much you apply, it was never too heavy looking! the shade is such a natural color on my cheeks, between a pink/light bronze glow)
They wore very well on top of liquid foundation (that set) and powder foundation and lastly throughout the day, I can easily put these into my make up bag too!
Here is a FOTD I did when I went to visit my classmates in Cambodia...I only brought PW 24 and had one more blush in the Lancome Absolu Voyage Palette de Maquillage... I reviewed here!
I swear I used PW 24! I was so pleasantly surprised by the pinkiness it had when applied heavily!

Paid: $S14.90 ($12 USD) per blush (One of the cheaper single blushes at the drugstore!)
Repurchase: YES! I would definitely be looking into a few more...quite interesting in the other brownish/pinky shades...
Recommend: Totally! Do swatch them in store, I think these will be great for beginners and people who want something easy to wear everyday.
Bottom Line: Great quality and I love them loads, I'd say the range of colors is of sweet pinks/oranges. These would be a nice addition for anyone who'd like to try japanese products and for blush lovers of course! I will be going back for a shade or two more!
Have you tried any Canmake products/blushes? What's your 'go to' or 'natural' blush?
