Majolica Majorca Blood On Review & Swatches

Majolica Majorca Blood On 1

Sounds weird doesn’t it? Blood On? But that’s what Majolica Majorca has named its new potted gel blush!

Take a look!

Actually, Majolica Majorca Blood On is a revamp of a long ago product that MJ released entitled Flesh & Blood in Japan. If you’ve been collecting MJ for a while you probably remember Flesh & Blood in the tube format.

In my opinion, Blood On regresses slightly since Flesh & Blood’s packaging was way more hygienic. But on the plus side, I find this formula every so delightful so long as you can get past the packaging. Interestingly enough it looks larger than a tube of Flesh & Blood but actually only houses half the amount of product weighting in at 5 grams versus the 10 gram tube!

Housed in a screw top jar, this is a gel formula which has a hydrating feel. It tints cheeks a delightful shade depending on your skin tone. For me, it goes on a flush of reddish pink but it’ll reflect different depending how much lighter or darker you are. For example, on my sister’s cheeks, it comes across as a brighter, healthier shade of red.

The formula is lightweight, blends easily, and is fragrance-free. Wear time is a little short where as Flesh & Blood had a nice long wear through the day I find Blood On needs a touch up around hour three.

Overall, she proves a lovely little addition to my minimal makeup collection on the days I’m just too lazy to wear anything else but still want to look alive so to speak.

Natural, pretty, and fairly cheap too for around $13 bucks from online sellers. I recommend Gooddealer.com for a purchase as it’ll set you back around $15-$16 which includes shipping.

Muse Approved for purchase.

Aside of the packaging, it’s perfect if you like minimal makeup and healthy blushing cheeks!

P.S. Cut a sister a break, I’m not wearing concealer or foundation, you can see it gives just the right amount of wow to my duller skin.

    I’m on my last tube of Flesh and Blood. I love it. It’s what Benetint, Tarte Cheek Stains and the Nars Multiple sticks should be. Long wearing, easy to blend and sit well on top of anything. Bare skin, liquid/cream or powder foundation, it doesn’t matter.

    I’m not sure about the new incarnation. But I’m sure I’ll buy it.

    You can use it on your lips for a tint of colour too! I tried the tester at Watsons, really like the colour but the tub packaging turns me off..so didn’t purchase it

    I don’t mind the packaging b/c I really hate using my fingers to apply makeup, so I’d use a stippling brush anyway. You look really lovely without foundation/concealer, can we trade skins? I look like a greased-up zombie without those two holy items, lol

    • 3/27/12 9:16 the Muse:

      you are TOO kind. I look pasty, dull, and all kinds of bad without concealer/base ;-D oily skin is good though, keeps you looking younger longer ;D!

    Muse! would you say it compare to Mac’s just a pinch? Do you have a recommendation for a gel blush with a good staying power?
    thanks love

    Reply

    • 4/20/12 9:05 the Muse:

      yes gala, def, but the formula is a bit more emollient, just a pinch was a little denser. gel blush pot? most have kinda short wear times. liquid gels are best for the longest wear. I personally LOVE vincent longo stains. Those are my favs! those are a gel liquid.
