Review: Majolica Majorca Chapter 36: Secret Blink

Ever since I tried my first Majolica Majorca mascara when I was 19 years old, I was utterly and completely SOLD to the brand! I remember it was only available via online websites (who remembers the good old sprees on Livejournal?) and I always stocked up on Majolica Majorca mascaras whenever I ordered them online. 

Then, I went to Japan in 2009, and bought my first Majolica Majorca eyeshadow palette, which I still have up to now, with back-up copies, because I loved it so much! It's not just the gorgeous branding and packaging which I love, but Majolica Majorca in my opinion, is one of the best value-for-money drugstore brands available.

So so happy that Majolica Majorca is now widely available in Singapore for quite a few years now, and even when I don't have anything to buy, I like to pop by Watsons whenever I see one, just to spend some time looking at all the MM products and admiring them! :D

I was privileged to get a preview of the latest Majolica Majorca Spring 2013 collection, Chapter 36: Secret Blink

Below are the 5 items that are available in Chapter 36: Secret Blink:

Lash Expander Edge Meister Mascara - SGD25.90
Lash Jelly Drop - SGD25.90 
Majoromantica M (limited edition) -  SGD25.90
Skin Remaker Case 2013 (limited edition) - SGD13.50 
The Little Humming Book 1 (limited edition) - SGD25.90 

The Lash Expander Edge Meister Mascara and Lash Jelly Drop have already been launched, and the other 3 limited edition items will only be stocked on 28th Feb, 2013.

This beautiful palette was specially created to commemorate Majolica Majorca's 10th anniversary, and it is so lovely you might not bear to use it!

It is indeed a little book on its own, and has a song printed on it with musical notation and japanese lyrics.. how quaint!
The palette consists of two eyeshadow shades [Flower Dust] and [Green Shower], one eye cream base [Moonless Night] and one lip gloss [Tulip Bed].

The interesting thing about this palette is that the eyeshadows can either be used on their own for a sheer wash of color, or layered over the eye cream base for a more intense color that's almost metallic! I had a lot of fun playing with the different combinations to create my very own unique look!

All you need to do is to apply the eye cream base first, before layering the eyeshadow over it. It took me a couple of tries to get the hang of it, but the end result was gorgeous! I love shimmers in my eyeshadows and Majolica Majorca eye palettes never fail to deliver that sparkle to my eyes.

Majolica Majorca mascaras: Still my first love when it comes to mascaras! I felt right at home with the plastic comb applicator, though some find it hard to use. It's great for separating and coating every single lash with that awesome mascara formula that Majolica Majorca is famous for!

If you're as confused as I am with all the different types of Majolica Majorca mascaras available, here's a comparison table for your reference!

The Lash Expander Edge Meister helps to lengthens your lashes, at the same time strengthening them for beautiful long lashes. It has a duo comb that widens and separates each lash, which means that every lash will be coated. The upper comb is meant for the upper lashes while the lower comb is meant for lashes at the corner or your eyes and your lower lashes. It is also sweat, oil, tear and water proof.

You can see the amazing lengthening effect of the Lash Expander Edge Meister: from barely visible lashes to beautiful long lashes that are separated and defined! I only used one coat of mascara to achieve this effect, as Majolica Majorca mascaras tend to get clumpy if you layer them too much.
And here's a huge-ass picture of my complete eye look: I didn't have on cheek or lip products because I was focusing on just the eyes!

This limited edition case is specially made to contain Majolica Majorca's Skin Remaker Pore Cover! The Skin Remaker Pore Cover is a powder foundation that evens out pores in a single stroke and provides a long-lasting, fine-textured smooth finish. It also has satin powder and sebum catching powder to give you radiant skin, contains SPF, non-comedogenic and is dermatologist-tested.

I love how gorgeous the case is, especially the embossed emblem and gold finish! Majolica Majorca really does have one of the most beautiful packaging around.

Majolica Majorca’s Skin Remaker Pore Cover comes in 4 shades, BO10, BO20, OC10, and OC20.

The Lash Jelly Drop is a rich lash treatment gel for eyes and treats each damaged lash by providing shine and elasticity. It is formulated with Arginin which is a hair repair ingredient, and also wild rose extract and glycerin which helps to moisturize the skin along your lashline. You can use it both in the morning and at night: yes, even before your mascara! Just remember to let this dry before mascara application!


The Majoromantica Mystic Garden Scent is a concentrated rich scent with a mixture of floral, fruity and sweet notes.

Black Rose, Rose, Freesia, Peony, Jasmine, Violet, Lily of the Valley, Pear & Orange Peel dominate the top notes, and at the heart of the fragrance it has June Berry, Raspberry, Strawberry, Blueberry and sweet chocolate. The base notes are made of Brown Sugar, Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Amber, Musk, and Cacao Powder. 

At the first whiff, this is fruity and citrusy, but leaves behind a strong floral musk that is quite heavy on the nose. I dabbed it on my wrists and behind my ears, and found that the fragrance had nearly dissipated by the end of the day. Do give it a try at the Majolica Majorca counters, you may love the fruity and floral scent of this perfume!

My top picks of this collection: the Lash Expander Edge Meister and The Little Humming Book 1! Two lovely products I'm more than happy to add to my collection. Majolica Majorca is exclusive to Watsons in Singapore, and can be found in most Watsons outlets!
