Majolica Majorca has updated it’s main portal with the brand new Summer Collection for ’09 entitled Innocent Pleasure. Although I can’t say I’m all that excited about Majolica Majorca Innocent Pleasure, I can’t deny that I always feel a certain hype about viewing the new items released.
Jump ahead for a peek!
In typical Majolica Majorca fashion you have to “find” the new items on the site. The theme of Innocent Pleasure is portrayed in an Adam and Eve-like fashion with a tree, a snake, and tempting goodies hidden within the three.
The collection does make me wired for the new palettes as this is quite a large Summer Collection especially when compared to last year’s extremely tiny release.
A total of eight palettes are being introduced which is pretty huge for MJ. That’s a whole lot of palette. Although the release of eight palettes is very, very exciting, I personally can’t help but be disappointed by the same ho-hum color collection that’s typical to MJ and most every other Japanese brand. Sigh. Aside from RD784 I’m not feeling the love for any of the shade selections although I imagine I’ll indulge in a few if not all since I collect MJ palettes (diseased am I). GR780 should excite those who missed out on GR741 the limited edition palette
from the Spring 2008 line up. It’s not a total dupe but it is fairly different for MJ to go with aquas/teals.
A brand new solid perfume is also released. I’m not sure as of yet what it smells like but it also looks a tad uneventful but of course, again, I’ll def indulge. And finally several new nail polishes.
All in all I find it very exciting that MJ released eight palettes but a bit crestfallen it’s the same old colors over and over. Many of the shades are quite similar to palettes I already have from the line. Oh well. One of my readers, Jenn from Japan, was nice enough to share her pamphlet she got while viewing Majolica Majorca at Welcia. Thanks Jenn! We heart you!
I have a serious disease when it comes to collecting, hoarding, and stashing away crazy amounts of Majolica Majorca Majolook Palettes.
Even the ones that suck somehow end up in my arsenal of insanity. Is it a sin to collect palettes I don’t even use? Am I going to hell?
I think I pretty much have ever Majolica Majorca Majolook Palette released over the course of the past few years. Many people will beg to to say that Majolook palettes aren’t as good as Majorca Majolica singles or not as great as many other releases but honestly about 85% of the ones I have, I absolutely adore.
The colors always work well together, the liner that comes with some of them is pretty decent quality, and I kinda dig the compact palettes!
Hope you enjoy the photos of my sickness! I even included some of the Majolica Majorca Majewel Palettes, my flavorites!
How about you?
Love the palettes?

Majolica Majorca Girly Erotica is up and active on the MJ website!
I LOVE the new story! The goth element plus the little spider made me giddy! I think it’s one of the simpler stories they have done on the site as there is nothing to “find” and everything is right there to click on, open, and view.
I also noticed they now have a great option as soon as the first page loads which allows you to click a link and this opens the entire general catalog of items available. Great feature.
Love the goth element, love the spider, but the collection is meh at best! Pretty disappointed about the lack of items available but I’ll survive.
GWP? Cutes! Love me some spiders!
Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus is the brand new mascara releasing for Spring which I will pick up for sure.
Also available are two new Majolica Majorca Honey Plump Glosses and finally Majolica Majorca Pressed Pore Cover Face Powder.
So you can obviously why I’m lacking excitement. I’ll be snatching up the mascara and I’m debating on the powder as I have several powders from MJ already and I’ll def skip the Honey Plump Glosses as I have at least six to get through already. Very disappointed at the lack of palettes or lack of virtually anything for the eyes aside from the mascara.
It’s really a bare minimal collection and I’m a tiny bit shocked they didn’t go further with it.
Economy do you think?
Hmmmm…the Muse is sad. I need a hug!
If you’re interested in reading the story you can check back to see if the Singapore site updates as that will be in English. At the moment the I am Gorgeous promo is still live so you’ll have to see in a few weeks if it changes.
One item the Muse truly misses is Majolica Majorca Flesh & Blood Cheek and Lip Stain.
Take a blast to the past with the Muse to hear why she misses Majolica Majorca Flesh & Blood Cheek and Lip Stain!
Sigh…dontcha just hate when your fav products get up, walk away, and never return? So be the case with the limited edition run of Majolica Majorca Flesh & Blood.
These fabulous little tubes of color were available in four shades, were cheap as day old chips, and nicely pigmented! Many stains are too red or too pink but Flesh & Blood managed to captured a true blush of color and added a beautiful finish to lips and cheeks. The gel formula was easy to blend and melted into the skin leaving behind moist, dewy color that was both natural and flattering.
I sure do miss these and wish that Majolica Majorca would bring them back or at least do a similar release! For now I’m forced to blast into my past with the two remaining tubes I do have stashed away and I’ll mourn the day they are gone!
Have you every tried Majolica Majorca Flesh & Blood?
Have a few stashed away for a rainy day?
Tell the Muse about your Beauty Blast from the Past holdings!
I’ve previously reviewed Majolica Majorca Gorgeous Wing mascara and hated it but I am a glutton for punishment so when I seen that MJ was releasing a brand new version of Lash Gorgeous Wing along with the Holiday Collection I quickly decided I had to have it!
Purchasing a new version of Majolica Majorca Lash Gorgeous Wing was a no brainer for me considering that I fell in love with the promo image and of course had the desire to “dupe” the look of the model. The original release of Gorgeous Wing Mascara is a black version and what was released with the Majolica Majorca Holiday Collection was a limited edition golden brown version. I really found the effect interesting and unique on the model’s eyes and even though I hate fiber mascaras with a passion I quickly decided I had to try it for myself.
The bad and not so surprisingly news is Gorgeous Wing Mascara is just as crappy as the original release. I really can’t stand how this mascara feels on my lashes! Honestly, it’s so irritating as I go through the entire day feeling like I have an eyelash in my eye! ugh! The fibers get somehow trapped under my upper waterline and make me feel like I have something in my eye which makes for a rather long day of trying not to rub my eyes.
It’s understandable why the mascara is so popular with the Asian market though as it does “feather” lashes as it promises. I think this appeals as many Asian girls have shorter, stubbier lashes and they desire more length and volume, it can’t be denied that this gives both but I’m not too big a fan of the fluffy, feather like feel of my lashes. It’s rather unusual but it feels like I’m wearing a really soft, soft pair of false lashes after use.
Now the entire “golden brown” effect doesn’t entirely work and you’ll have to look rather closely at my lashes to see anything golden or brown about them. This doesn’t really disappoint and I’m not ranting simply because many colored mascaras fail to work very well. Even Urban Decay Big Fatty Color doesn’t really do much for turning your lashes completely a different color. So really it doesn’t bug me very much as I’m not really surprised at the lack of pigmentation of the formula but I did have hopes as the model in the promotional images does have rather nice golden brown lashes.
Overall, I think I’m just generally pissy about the fact that I simply don’t like fiber mascaras and the irritating feeling that I have something in my eye!
I actually will say it’s probably worth checking out if you a. love fiber mascaras or b. have shorter, stubbier lashes.
Personally it’s a losing situation and I’ve learned that twice is plenty enough to try this out so if anymore versions are released I best keep away! Can someone write this down and remind me of it when the next MJ promo goes live and introduces some new style of Gorgeous Wing? K, thanks. I just need to be reminded in the future how much I truly dislike this one!
Lover of Gorgeous Wing?
Lover of fiber mascaras?
