AMW Reviews: Majolica Majorca Lash Enamel Glamour Volume On Mascara

"It doesn't make a difference and I don't understand why people are raving about this!" --- this was the exact sentence I blurted out when I was chatting with Liz during NaRaYa and Ferretti event/dinner!  When she explained to me how she gave it 2nd or 3rd try to finally see the result and make this mascara work!  I challenged myself to find ways to make this work too!  And I finally did and seems like this mascara is going up against one one of my favorite drugstore mascara to date!  Yes, my dear Maybelline Volum' Express Magnum Mascara !


Majolica Majorca Lash Enamel Glamour Volume On Mascara says ---
Released Spring of 2010 with black as the only available shade.

AMW says ---
Pros
  • Gorgeous packaging!  What's new?  All Majolica Majorca products are housed in lovely packaging!
  • No weird scent.
  • No eye irritations occur.
  • Comes with a box with sticker that has a manufacturing date!
  • The dual sided brush with different bristle "style" makes the mascara unique!  
  • The mascara texture is just right, not too runny nor dry.
  • No to flaky lashes and crunchy lashes.
  • Gives out a really intense black shade!
  • Does lengthen but the best part of this mascara?  It held the curl!  The curl lasted the whole day!
Cons
  • Not that great in the volume department.
  • A bit difficult and tricky to apply especially for first timers!
  • Very difficult to remove with a regular eye make-up remover.
  • If not applied correctly, lashes may clump together.
  • No other shade available for other people looking for colored mascaras.
Overall
There are times my lashes aren't cooperating with the mascara and I'll turn out with really defined lashes yet clumped together!  This can be remedied by using a spoolie or lash comb!  Overall, this is a wonderful product especially for girls who has similar lashes like mine! 

Tips
  • Note down date you first opened the tube to make sure you're not using expired mascaras!  Be careful as that's where most eye infections start!
  • Practice Practice Practice!  It took me the 3rd try to finally get it!  
  • You can use the smaller comb part to apply on the lower lashes!  I seriously can't!  I don't have lower lashes!  *lol*
  • Use the smaller teeth part to apply on the roots to the middle part of the lashes, then continue with the wider teeth and gently brush from middle part to the tips.  This works so well!  Clumps are minimized!
  • Test on different eye make-up removers.  I find it easier to remove with cleansing oils!  I am removing mine with Etude House Cleansing Dream Light Cleansing Oil.
Will I repurchase?
Yes!  I just did!

To whom do I recommend this to?

Anyone with fine, sparse lashes who loves to bow down to gravity!

Where to purchase and how much?
At Majolica Majorca counters for Php795.00 (approx $18.90).

The brush comes with 2 types of brush
In smaller teeth 
This is perfect to use as it grabs all lashes with the small-spaced comb!  
It can grab all the tiny lashes you have and it coat each lashes well with mascara!
 
 In wider teeth
Perfect for the tips of the lash hair!  As you can see, the uppermost area of your lashes are separated in bigger space so this is the perfect comb to do the job!  This helps separate the lashes and shows minimal clumps!

  1. wow, there's actually an MM product that suck :P
    yeee, sorry this didn't work out though, it seemed such a true and really dark black pa naman which is what i need since the tips of my lashes get really thin it's like they're not there na and makes my lashes look even shorter =(

  3. Nikki, your review made me wanna get this mascara to try out! I'm not a fan of MM mascaras ever since I tried the Lash Expander Frame Plus, which is so heavily raved about. It totally failed on me.

    Well, maybe it's because I have too sparse lashes! So, this mascara sounds really promising! And wow, your lashes look amazing with this mascara on!

  6. Yesterday I visited the MM counter in SM Makati (finally!) The salesperson applied it on the top of my lashes rather than the bottom oAo I was intrigued. I barely have noticeable eyelashes which is why most of i use falsies but i actually had eyelashes then lol! oAo So yea maybe applying them on top might work better?

  9. @Jess Well, you've seen how almost "invisible" my lashes look, with practice this mascara worked really well on me and got to be on no. 1 spot for my favorite mascara :) What mascara are you loving at the moment by the way?

  12. @katatonik well, it helps to concentrate the brush on the lower portion then also on the top most part of the lashes too!

  25. hi nikki! this mascara looks good on you. I have the lash expander and I love it! and it's really water proof. Nag swimming ako without removing it coz I forgot to bring my makeup remover and it did not smudge at all. I'm super impressed with the Lash Expander. I'll definitely give the other two mascaras a try :)

  26. Great review! :) I wanna try this. :D
    Btw, I made a review on the Daiso High Curling Mascara I bought at Saizen. I think 85 pesos for such a mascara is definitely a steal! Please check it out on my blog at

    TIA! :D
