My Shiseido Maquillage Powder Celebration 5th Anniversary Set arrived from Japan last week. Lots of squealing, hyperventilating, and screaming occurred during the surgical procedure of opening and unwrapping the contents of the box it arrived in.
It’s probably my most expensive makeup purchase I’ve made this Holiday season, tipping the scales at nearly $200 USD due to costly airmail shipping.
It’s gorgeous to say the least.
Let’s have a look!
One of Shiseido’s more popular Asian brands, Majolica Majorca, and a favorite of mine, has a very small Holiday Collection this year. The selection features a fragrance oil, nail polish, and a new red mascara. I picked up two of the items on a whim since I adore the brand.
I imagine their Holiday Collection is so tiny because they are gearing up for a larger Spring release. Happy Days!
But we are in full Holiday mode so let’s worry about that first.
Today I have Majolica Majorca Majoromantica to review for you!
Let’s have a look!
Shiseido Maquillage Powder Celebration 5th Anniversary Set launches in Japan at the end of November and I can barely breath awaiting its arrival.
Shiseido’s Maquillage line has never been one of my favorite Japanese Brands and I do find I pass it up to venture towards other product lines. Not sure why that is but it just fails to excite me.
But I have no such reserves about celebrating their 5th Anniversary in style with the Powder Celebration Set, simply put, it’s stunning!
For a very long time my favorite mascara was Majolica Majorca Lash Expander. This is a branch off brand created by Shiseido and at one time available exclusively within Japan but now it’s available in other Asian countries, just not, sadly, the US.
One of the most common questions I get about Lash Expander is how do I remove it? I’ve never had a problem removing the mascara but for some reason or another many people who use and love it have complained, ranted, and had major woe getting it all off. I simply use my normal oil based eye makeup remover but again, for some reason, that doesn’t seem to work for everyone.
This Fall, Majolica Majorca finally created and released Eyes Reset Gel for removing mascara. This is an exciting release for those who have had drama in the past with removing any mascaras by the brand. I was keen to try it myself out of morbid curiosity even though my normal remover worked just fine.
Jump ahead to hear my thoughts.
