*✦ Majolica Majorca Puff de Cheek Review & Swatches ✦*

Today, I'm finally reviewing one of my favorite blushes, Majolica Majorca's Puff de Cheek in Peach Macaron (PK301) and Apricot Macaron (OR302).


Majolica Majorca is a subsidiary brand of Shiseido and evokes a dreamy state of fairy-tales, spells, and promises of "everlasting loveliness". All the items from the brand carry this idea of whimsical love and fairy tales with their cute packaging and products, effectively capturing the hearts of girls around the world. They are most well known for their mascara, Lash Expander Frame Plus that is a fiber based mascara with a unique wand. You may or may not have seen these blushes floating around and if you're not already drawn in by the super cute packaging... It's pure fluffy cuteness in a small tin.

The initial debut composed of 3 blushes and 1 highlighter as a part of Majolica Majorca's Sugary Trap collection. The 82 Vanilla Macaron was released in the first range of colors as a limited edition and features a pale highlighting powder. Each features a metal tin with a pressed blush and a small puff adorned with a cute bow inside.

Later, as part of Majolica Majorca's Psychedelicious collection, they released two more limited edition colors in Cherry Macaron (RD414) and Raspberry Macaron (PK415).

They retail for around ¥1300 yen and although the size of the tin is quite small, it comes with 7g of product, and has lasted me quite a while. It features a silky, smooth, blendable texture with a sheer formula, but is definitely buildable. They give a soft, flushed effect when applied and although it comes with the puff for application, but I prefer to use a brush since the puff rests on top of the product in the same container.



I initially picked up the PK301 as I was drawn to the sweet peachy color that is universally flattering, and returned shortly to get OR302 as I was in a sort of orange/apricot high (I don't think I even opened half of the things I bought during this crazed orange addiction...). They both are matte blushes, which I am very fond of as I like to keep more shimmers and sparkles on my eyes. I always imagine looking like a vampire from Twilight when overloading on too much sparkle...*Shudder*

Overall, with the adorable packaging, decent price, and cute range of colors I think these blushes are well worth trying. I was fortunate enough to pick these up myself when I was in Taiwan as they were readily available in almost all drug stores, but I've seen them online on Sasa.com, Yesstyle, and Ebay.

  1. i love the packaging and the colour! I wish they'd make some of the LE colours more of a permanent part of their collection though, they all look so pretty >.<

    yeah these blushes look shiny in the pan as if they have shimmer, but appears matte on the cheeks. I really love the Orange blusher for the soft light touch on the cheeks! Try it for yourself, don't go too heavy handed though!
