Spring 2011: Majolica Majorca Puff de Cheek PK301 & PK303 and Cream Pencil Liner BK999

This year´s spring collection from Majolica Majorca is chocolate-themed so I really love it! While the eyeshadow palettes are definitely too warm for me I was glad to see that after many years there are new cheek colors released!
I also liked the black Cream Pencil Eyeliner so I ordered it along with 2 of the new Puff de Cheek blushes.

The blushes from Majolica Majorca (Customize Cheeks?) were really popular, especially that NARS Orgasm-dupe color though while I liked the blushes they were really very shimmery thus a little hard to wear on a daily basis.

The new Puff de Cheek blushes come in really adorable metal tubs with a cute little soft puff adorned with a ribbon (as a handle). These are pressed blushes and retail for 1365 (~ US$17) for a quite generous 7g (that´s a good amount for a blush actually!). I got 2 colors from eBay, seller alphabeautyuk for less than US$20.

I got the 2 pink (PK) colors, one of them being a limited edition. Both have a silky texture and sheer but buildable pigment and a softly gleaming finish, no glitter or shimmer overkill as before.


The blushes are unscented and last pretty much all day long on me (in the cold un-sweaty weather we have right now).

PK301 is a peach shade with very subtle pink tones. It actually looks less orange on the swatch pics I saw online but it´s one of those face-brightening shades.

PK303 is a brighter pink, on the warmer side in my opinion. This is LE
There are also an orange and a LE highlighter shade (I think pale pink or so) available.

Overall these are excellent little blushes and should be checked out if you like a cute blush in cheerful colors.

Rating 5/5


The Cream Pencil Liner comes in 2 shades, a warm mocha brown and a deep black...since I definitely have no use for a reddish brown eyeliner pencil I picked up the black one as it looked really yummy!

The liner retails for 850 Yen and is shorter than an average pencil. 
I think the all-black pencil with golden writing looks really pretty and the product is really good, too.
I like how creamy the pencil applies, it´s really pleasant to use this as it doesn´t tug on the delicate skin around my eyes.

This is really a deep black eyeliner, once the line is set (about a minute after application) this stays put all day long without smudging, fading or budging. This is one of the best liners to put on the inner rims of my lower lids as the color stays put extremely well there and this is actually the main use I intend for this great pencil.

Best of all this doesn´t make my eyes water and burn like the previous liners from MJ (Jeweling Pencil) and I wore it on my inner rims with my contacts inside and there was neither irritation nor any sort of film or gunk collecting on my contact lenses.

BK999 is a deep black as mentioned above.



Overall a high-quality product and a great basic staple for anyone´s makeup collection.

Hi Kathi! so i bought the red/brown liner and used it today. it's soft when swatching on my hands, but on my lids it felt slightly waxier and dragged a bit, particularly when i'm going over my lines again and it dried too quickly. texture wise it made me think of Smashbox's Limitless eyeliners, which also had such a waxy texture once it sets, but i think the MM one is a tad bit creamier when first going on. I'm not a huge fan of the waxiness when it sets, but it really does last super well, and definitely pigmented! i think it'll work great on waterline (too bad i just don't line my waterline at all! x___x )

thanks for the review!
