Majolica Majorca Puff de Cheek in Cherry Macaron
The weather finally cleared! Yay! I don't want to sound like a weather reporter here, but I'm sure you know how rain can disrupt the whole of Manila. Everyone is in a bad mood. Things don't get done. So at least that's finally over.
Oops, I think I spoke too soon. -_- Major rain and wind here again in The Fort! Ugh.
Anyway, today I'm going to review one of the hottest products to hit Manila recently! The Majolica Majorca Puff de Cheek in Cherry Macaron (P795) is one of the two new blushes to join the popular Puff de Cheek family. Like I said in my capsule review earlier, it is much more pigmented and a bit more long-lasting than the earlier blushes from the line. Not complaining since these two features are a must in this schizo weather!
Color. Cherry Macaron is a red-coral mix with a bit of pink. It has fine silvery sparkles that are undetectable when worn. It imparts a nice glow on the cheeks, as an illuminator would.
Texture. I find that this is less powdery and somehow thinner compared to the older PdC blushes. It's finer and silkier, for me. I also like that this blush is well-pressed so you won't find yourself picking up too much powder.
Worn! Very pretty and natural, imho.
Pigmentation. This is SUPER pigmented so do use a light hand. I don't recommend using the puff, unless it's for touching up. Make sure you only have a tiny bit of color in it! Use a fluffy blush brush to distribute the product evenly, and blend blend blend.
Lasting power. This lasts around 5-7 hours on my oily-combination face. It fades as the hours pass, but you will still have a respectable amount of color by the time you get home.
Recommendations. The Majolica Majorca Puff de Cheek in Cherry Macaron is ideal for all skin types. If you're super oily, just bring the tin for touch-ups, it's cute anyway. I think it's also suitable for all skin tones - if you're very fair, use a small amount, increasing intensity as the tone goes darker.
Verdict. It's a nice blush! What I like most about it is that it's super versatile and easy to carry around. It is pricier than most blushes it its range but I think it's sulit considering you only have to use a small amount each time. :)
