Japanese Brand, Majolica Majorca, has released two new, limited edition shades of Puff de Cheek for Summer 2012 in Cherry and Raspberry Macaron.
Puff de Cheek’s original formula is a bit on the chalky side and I wasn’t terribly impressed enough to Muse Approve when I originally reviewed it but I must say that these new shades are worth a glance.
Take a look!
This blush comes housed in a small tin shaped like a little French macaron with a ribbon puff for application. I admit the little puff is darling but not the most practical way to apply the blush but hey, props for girlishly delightful packaging!
Unlike the original formula this has a smoother, silkier feel and surprise, surprise a tiny hint of sparkle. I don’t think I own a single shade of MJ blush that has sparkle and I believe I pretty much own all of them! This is novel!
I felt like the original shade I tried out wasn’t terribly unique from the line’s standard blushes but Cherry Macaron is something to rave about. This has a silkier texture in an easy to blend formula that has a very nice wear time.
Cherry Macaron quite reminds me of Tarte’s Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Frisky. This shade is a bright cherry coral. I don’t have many shades like this in my stash so I’m glad I picked it up as it gives a very nice flush of natural color to cheeks. It’s also quite pigmented where as my last shade of Puff de Cheek had to be built up a bit for the best color pay off.
This one deserves a Muse Approval!
I think the shade is unique enough to warrant a purchase and I love the formula on this as it proves far more superior to the single color I tried in the general catalog selection. Overall, a cute and very functional blush.
I got mine directly from Japan but I’m seeing them all over online shops for around retail pricing.
