Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes

Meet Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes, their first ever mascara!

Jelly+Pong+Pong+Fairy+Lashes

Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes is a waterproof mascara designed to make lashes longer, thicker, and curvier while giving them a light, fluffy, natural feeling! Hmmmm Majolica Majorca Gorgeous Wings may have competition!

This is formulated with cotton seed extract which restructures eyelashes while hydrating them and allowing flexibility. I have no idea what that means but it sounds like it’s really important!

Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes is available now for $18.50 USD or 15 from jellypongpong.com

Expect the good word from the Muse soonish!

Bourjois Paris So Delicate Lip Creme Lipstick

Bourjois+Paris+So+Delicate+3

A few of the Bourjois Paris International portals have been updated including the Japanese one with a brand new Lip Creme entitled So Delicate.

Bourjois+Paris+So+Delicate+2

Bourjois Paris So Delicate will be available in six shades and is a gentle cream formula that glides onto lips like a lipstick leaving behind a matte pigmented finish for supposedly eight hours of wear.

Bourjois+Paris+So+Delicate+1

Bourjois Paris So Delicate is available now in Japan, Russia, the Nederlands, and France. It should arrive shortly in the UK I’m sure.

Currently the price is set at 2,000 yen, I suspect it’ll be slightly cheaper in the UK but not by much.

It looks quite interesting and it’s something I definitely want to try.

What do you think?

Kose Softymo Powder Wash Whitening Formula Review

As per my original post about how I was cleaning up my washroom and coming across all sorts of cleansers, creams, potions, and lotions from various Asian brands.

Today I’ll be reviewing Kose Softymo Powder Wash Whitening Formula. Did I just hear a yay for whitening? The Muse is all about whitening agents although a majority of them don’t work so well but hey it’s worth a try!

Kose+Softymo+Powder+Wash+Whitening+Formula+1

Does Kose Softymo Powder Wash Whitening Formula really whiten?

We’ll see…jump ahead to hear the word!

Kose Softymo Powder Wash is a typical powder wash which comes in a fine powder formula that you add water to in order to develop a sudsy wash for whisking away dirt, oil, and other nasties from your face. It’s one of my favorite powder washes mainly because it’s dead cheap at around $3-$6 USD so really who can’t love that?

Kose+Softymo+Powder+Wash+Whitening+Formula+2

Kose+Softymo+Powder+Wash+Whitening+Formula+3

I also happen to love it because it’s particularly good at washing away makeup (not eye makeup obviously) without drying out my skin. It contains Aloe Vera which could account for why my skin feels quite nice and moist after use.

Supposedly it clears away dead skin cells while preventing dull skin and offering a “whiten”, “renewed” skin. Sorry, have to disappoint here, but I didn’t experience much in the way of renewal to be honest or whitening of any kind.

Kose+Softymo+Powder+Wash+Whitening+Formula+4

Honestly, it’s a great, inexpensive budget powder wash that works great at getting my face clean without investing a ton of cash plus no tightness or dryness after use but that’s about it. Don’t expect bells and whistles as there aren’t any here.

The one plus side of the whitening formula is it doesn’t retain the strange sour milk smell that a majority of Softymo Powder Washes are legendary for. This is an upside for me as I really get a tiny bit turned off by that stench of the other powder washes even though it goes away almost instantly.

All in all if you can find it cheap it’s well worth picking up especially if you like powder washes!

Majorca Majolica Girly Erotica

Majolica Majorca Girly Erotica is up and active on the MJ website!

Majorca+Majolica+Girly+Erotica+6

Majorca+Majolica+Girly+Erotica+10

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.

Majorca+Majolica+Girly+Erotica+8

Nice!

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.

Majorca+Majolica+Girly+Erotica+5

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.

Spidey nails!

Majorca+Majolica+Girly+Erotica+9

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.

Beauty Blast from the Past: Majolica Majorca Flesh & Blood Cheek Stain

One item the Muse truly misses is Majolica Majorca Flesh & Blood Cheek and Lip Stain.

Majolica+Majorca+Flesh+%26+Blood+Cheek+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!
