Majolica Majorca released two limited edition shades of Puff de Cheek for Summer 2012 one of which was Raspberry Macaron. I already raved Cherry Macaron rather hard so I thought I’d haul out Raspberry today and review it.
Ok, so I’m a little late and Raspberry might be a little harder to find but it is well worth checking out!
This comes housed in a tiny little tin can with a ribboned puff for application. It looks like a little piece sweet candy or the French pastry it’s named for.
When the original Puff de Cheek’s were launched for Spring 2011 I wasn’t a fan as I felt the formula a tad too chalky but the Summer 2012 releases more than made up for that.
I find the formula silkier on the Summer colors and shimmer finish much easier to apply and use. The matte, chalkier finish of the original shades just wasn’t terribly appealing but the hint of shimmer and lighter texture of the Summer shades seemed easier to apply and had a much nicer finish on my skin. PK415 or Raspberry Macaron is a raspberry pink shade with silver shimmer. No worries about the shimmer as it blends away easily and doesn’t leave behind disco ball cheeks. The shades blends easily onto my cheeks and gives a bright pink finish.
The little puff included is a nice extra and completes the ultra cute packaging but it isn’t exactly practical. I find application with it ends up in clown-like cheeks. You’re best bet is using your own blusher brush for application.
If you’re looking for a pretty shade of pink blush, cute packaging, and a nicely pigmented formula that blends easily I’d check this little guy.
As I mentioned it was LE for Summer but it should be easy to locate on E-bay and Adambeauty.com but might also still stock it.
