[Beauty x Dining]
MHB Digital had an exclusive influencer dinner in partnership with Canmake Tokyo and Torikin at J’s Gate Dining, Lot 10 on 21st November 2018. The dinner was a good opportunity for our influencers to make new friends, and familiarise themselves with the new range of Canmake Tokyo products while enjoying some delicious Japanese fare by Torikin.
Nicholle Liew, Marketing Manager of Teeni Enterprise (the official and sole importer/ distributor of Canmake Tokyo products in Malaysia) shared with us that Canmake Tokyo has been in the market for 33 years and has consistently enjoyed tremendous popularity with its range of petite-price cosmetics that takes the effort out of looking pretty and fashionable.
Canmake has been in Malaysian market for 13 years with Teeni Enterprise and has since expanded and is currently available at over 150 points of sales (both offline and online) which includes Sasa, Aeon Wellness, Guardian, Aeon Departmental Store, Hermo – Online Beauty Shop, Play-Up by Parkson and Ourshop by Airasia. In 2017, Teeni Enterprise opened the first Canmake stand-alone store in Malaysia located in Damen Mall in USJ Subang.
Canmake Tokyo products are designed in petite sizes for convenience to bring around even in the smallest cosmetic pouch, or to easily fit in a handbag. The products are manufactured to the quality, made only with finest ingredients. Although the products are of high quality, Canmake’s products come with affordable price point, and are priced from RM31.90 to RM86.70 in Malaysia.
