Canmake Cheek & Cheek Part II

Here are the rest of the Canmake Cheek & Cheek, the limited edition releases from last October 2011, 05 Peach Petal, and from just this February, 06 Antique Rose.

I'm actually kind of disappointed with these two. The previous 4 duos have colors that provide at least some contrast. 01 Candy Flower and 03 Gerbera Kiss paired orange/coral with a paler pink, and the pinks in 02 Rose Tiara and 04 Love Blossom are far apart enough to be different from each other. The pinks in both 05 Peach Petal and 06 Antique Rose, on the other hand, are way too close in the gradation scale they don't look that much different to me. And they actually don't swatch that different either.

05 Peach Petal and 06 Antique Rose. All pictures taken in natural light without flash.

- 05 Peach Petal: a warm and soft combo of milky peachy pink that is matte base with scattered gold shimmers that seems to just "float" around and a blossom pink, also matte base with even fewer scattered shimmers. Both colors apply practically matte.

- 06 Antique Rose: a cooler combo of matte rosy pink and a brighter almost bubblegum pink that looks more muted in the pan than when swatched.

The lighter colors look like they would be difficult for most people to wear unless they were very pale >< are they?

The darker color of the Peach Petal palette looks gorgeous though~

Yeah, unfortunately the lighter colors are very pale and that's why I think the later 2 limited editions aren't as nice. But if you mix them together with the darker colors they're okay.
