I am nearly done with my Xmas reviews (just waiting for the Laneige stuff from Gmarket...Xmas post is getting slow finally).
Today it's time to review the Majolica Majorca palettes I received a few days ago from my friend Iris.
I wasn't really impressed with MM's Xmas collection 2008 as I have no use for glitter powder or brown mascara but the Majolooks looked nice enough to add them to my collection.
I have to say I don't really understand why they released the older style Majolook Illuminator palettes instead of the newer Trick On Eyes. I pretty much prefer the Trick On Eyes as it consists of 4 powder shades (whereas the older palettes have that stupid cream shade) and has a smoother texture than the Illuminator palettes.
Anyways, I think the new Xmas palettes are quite nice, they have a smooth rather pigmented texture and pretty shimmery finish. I consider these to be trios as I find the cream base shade rather useless.
They come in the same cute little Majolook compacts like the other palettes.
There are 2 colors for Xmas:
This is a warmer brown palette consisting of light gold, warm medium golden brown and a bit darker golden brown.
The palette is a bit on the warmer side so it's harder for me to pull this off. But if I use the light gold on my lids and the darker browns to shade my crease and eye socket the result is very pretty!
Naturally this is my fave palette as it offers cool colors. The colors are a light champagne, metallic taupe and dark neutral brown. I really love this palette as it is very flattering for my coloring.
