So I bought this Majolica Majorca set a couple of months ago and now I'm finally going to review the Lash Enamel Glamour Volume On.
I understand that not all of my readers have heard of Majolica Majorca. When some of my colleagues asked me to share the brand of the mascara I use, I said, "Majolica Majorca" and they said, "What!"
Well, it's actually the sister brand of Shiseido. Yes, I know. You'd never have got that from the name. Ah, them and their fancy names.
I have actually been a loyal fan of Dejavu's mascaras. I've used Fiberwig and Lash Knockout and really, really like both of them. I wasn't actually even thinking about changing...ever. Those were my holy grails. However, you see, like a lot of ladies (and men. Hey, it's a free world) with make up out there, despite having a HG product, my eyes still wander and my hands get itchy. I'm not big on make up, but I always need my lipstick, my eyeliner and my mascara. These, I'm happy to play around with.
So anyway, I was pretty much set for life with Dejavu's mascaras and note that this was after trying out several others before I found The One. So it came as a complete surprise when I fell in love with Majolica Majorca's Lash Enamel Glamour Volume On. Wow, what a mouthful. But seriously, this mascara is the bomb!
I wear this to work almost (because some days I'd rather get an extra few minutes sleep) every day and it has never failed me. It lasts all day long, doesn't flake, doesn't smudge and is super waterproof-ed.
The lenghtening effect is SO good. It opens up my eyes and I have actually gotten a few compliments that my eyes look really big *shy*
The tube is very pretty in that signature MM style.
As you can see, the applicator is a comb. It's double-sided where one side is wide-toothed and the other fine-toothed. Personally, I prefer to use the fine-toothed side only because I feel every eyelash gets a bit of mascara. I don't have much clumping issues with this mascara, but I find that if I use the wide-toothed side, it does clump sometimes.
Look, I know. My pictures do not do it justice. I wish I had a fancy HD camera, but I don't. You'll just have to take my word for it. The lenghtening and volumnizing effect is so much clearer in person.
Alright, the bad news. Since it's so fantastico and lasts practically forever (one day), it is almost inevitable that removing it can be a little difficult. I use an oil-based eye make-up remover and it does the job pretty well, but sometimes, it still leaves a bit of mascara on. I know this is a huge no-no, but sometimes I have to use a little bit of pressure to wipe it off and sadly, sometimes, this results in a few of my precious eyelashes falling off *sad face*
Still, overall, it's a darn good mascara! *two thumbs up*
- The free red curler that came with the set is pretty good, too. I like its unique red colour. I use it in combination with the mascara so I guess they are a good match. However, I don't like the fact that the rubber is white in colour because it's super obvious when it gets dirty.
- I'm sorry I won't be reviewing the Jeweling Pencil because I actually much prefer using liquid eyeliners. I'll be giving this one away, so keep an eye out if you're interested!
