EOTD: Majolica Majorca





A good friend of mine gave me this gorgeous palette from Majolica Majorca in GR750, which I noticed have been sorta popular among Asian Brand makeup lover out there.

I honestly didn't really take any advantage of living in Japan for years regarding makeup and you may be surprised by my reasoning.

I was turned off by all the Japanese "too cute" makeup packaging.

The only makeup brand I bought was KATE by Kanebo, whose packaging is a simple sleek black case.

Yes, I am weird like that. I also find those cheesy "KAWAIIII~~~" scream is intolerable. Sorry if you consider this rude, but I have just had enough Japanese friends screaming it on every expression they tried to make. Anyway, before I get even bitchier (lol), let's move on to the good stuff.

This palette is just like any other Japanese makeup, they're on the shimmery side. Don't get me wrong, I love shimmers, I think every girls need an extra blings in her life. This particular quad, if I may call it, I found pretty decent as it's not too shimmery (you know I hate discoballs) yet it delivers good pigmentation of shadows and soft texture.

Packaging

Not too girly, compact and a good size to carry around. It also has sponge tip applicator for those who love. Downside is probably not having a mirror for application, but I don't really sweat it.

Pigmentation

4/5, The white color is actually really pretty in person as it got this gold highlight (picture above doesn't do justice) and although I personally think the quad is a pretty odd color combination (beigy pink - olive green - steel blue - white gold), I quite like it.

LOL You're so Kawaii Inan.

I love your blending. It's always so soft.

I see you don't use the sponge applicator that comes with it. Haha. I can never use those things. They're so tiny I end up dropping them on the ground.
