Long, fat & thick lashes with the Lash King by Shiseido's Majolica Majorca

I was at the Lower Ground Floor, Concourse Area of Mid Valley Megamall on Thursday to try out the latest Lash King Mascara by Majolica Majorca.

I have to admit that I have never tried anything from Majolica Majorca by Shiseido but I must say that I kinda love their packaging - the colourful combination of fascinating design and whimsical packaging make makeup seriously fun. One glance at their products and your eyes would want to take a second look at what they are.

a little over the top in their promo? a great way to grab your attention, don't you think?

Anyways, to cut the story short, let me show you some photos of my before and after shots with the Lash King.

tadaaaa... look at one side that's volumised and thickened with Lash King vs the other side without.

Ok, a mascara is a mascara is a mascara. You would just need to try it for yourself to see if it works. For me, as I mentioned before, I am never a fan of mascaras because they would always smudge on me but especially so because I find it so tedious to have to curl my lashes and then need so much effort to remove them at the end of the day.

But, talking about Lash King, I must say that it feels light on my lashes, that I didn't feel as if I had put anything on. I still needed a little bit of effort to make my lashes curl but what I like about it is that it kinda opens up my eyes and makes my lashes look so much thicker. Well, it does promise to give you overwhelming length and extra thickness, that you do not really need to use falsies. So, I guess that part is true...

However, like most mascaras I use, it kinda smudged after 3 hours. It may be my lashes because with all other good mascaras in town, they would always smudge on me even if the rest of the human population doesn't have that problem *sigh* and so, I've learnt to live with it - either check my compact every other hour for smudges or not wear one at all.

Anyway, Majolica Majorca is aiming at getting at least 10,000 Malaysians to try out the Lash King at their promo roadshows. You can follow them at their facebook page for updates and news.

Right now, they already have about 5,000 people who have tried out Lash King and if you head on now to their promotion booth in Mid Valley, they will also give out a voucher for you to redeem on your purchase of Lash King.

And while you're there with eyes perfectly dolled up, head on to the King's chair to pose pretty ;P

Okay, okay... this doesn't look that pretty but I didn't have a proper costume and props. heh ;P

While you're at the booth, do check out some of these items and more... L-R: Eyes Reset Gel (an eye makeup remover), the Lash King, a sweet smelling fragrance Majoromantika in Secret Joker and Blood On (a lip & cheek colour in a pot).

blood on
I am pretty much intrigued with this product, Blood On, a lip and cheek rouge. The name and colour look really strong but in reality, it works like a lip gloss and its colour will apply light yet still good enough to be noticed. Let me use it for a little while longer before I can properly tell you what I think of it, okay?

Here, I show you the overall look - Lash King on my lashes and Blood On on my lips.
Until this Sunday, there will be an ongoing promotion and a lucky draw for you to try your luck at the promotional booth. Just purchase the Lash King (retails at RM59.90), and you will be able to stand a chance to win an awesome product by Majolica Majorca.

Have you tried any of their products? What do you like most about them?

The Blood On looks cool! Didn't expect it to be so pigmented. I haven't looked at Majolica mascaras for awhile because they didn't really impress me and were a bitch to remove. Now you've gotten me keen!

it's not very pigmented, actually, but buildable. and i think with flash, i guess the red turned out really strong when it really doesn't at all look too red.

as for the mascara, the lash king was pretty easy to remove, now that you mentioned it. i am using clinique eye makeup remover. no additional effort required, nothing different than all those other good mascaras around.

you can try first to see if you like it :)
