AMW Reviews: Majolica Majorca Cream de Cheek in Custard Cream and Coral Cream

Majolica Majorca came out with their newest cheek products end of last year and I got it early this year to give this a try myself!  After testing this out, I have to say, I have to keep one for myself and put the other one inside my makeup train case as I would definitely use this for my bridal clients! 

Here are the 2 shades I get to test, thanks to Cathy of Majolica Majorca Philippines!


Custard Cream


Coral Cream


Majolica Majorca says ---

A cheek color that blends in effortlessly leaving a natural healthy glow. A gel cream type with gloss that spreads on smoothly. Its soft texture leaves no sticky feeling. Blends in perfectly to moisturize and maintain a long-lasting color. Treatment effect to keep dry-prone cheeks moisturized at all times. Macadamia nuts oil, Vitamin E derivatives. Use as a base and apply just before a cheek powder to enhance the powder’s color.

Available shades: Custard Cream (OR 313), Shell Pink Cream (PK312), Coral Cream (RD 310), Kiichigo/Raspberry Cream (RD411)

Pros
  • Super cute, glass packaging.  As always, Majolica Majorca can never go wrong with their whimsical packaging!
  • No fragrance.
  • Pigmentation is good.  Build-able from sheer to heavy.
  • Staying power is good, stays until makeup removal.
  • Consistency of the product is good.  
  • A little goes a long way.
  • Powder finish.  Works for all skin types!
  • Non-greasy.  
  • Doesn't dry out my dry skin.
  • No allergic reactions.
  • Matte finish yet creates a good dimension on your skin.
Cons
  • Glass bottle is wonderful but not suitable for travel. 
Overall
A liquid to powder finish cheek product.  A little amount goes a long way, the product is easy to blend and never feel greasy on skin.  Works for all skin types and lasts the whole day!

Tips
from Majolica Majorca
  • Shake well before use.
  • Gently swirl brush around the inside rim of bottle to remove excess. Smile and apply an appropriate amount to the ‘apple’ of your cheek, then pat with fingers while blending in.
  • For a natural finish, dab as if drawing a circle, then gently pat while blending in.
from AMW 
  • The shade on swatch may look different upon application.  It depends on your body chemistry.
  • Thus, base on statement above, I highly recommend to test product before purchase.
  • Start by applying a small amount and build coverage if needed.
  • Applied too much?  Don't worry, tap with your choice of powder foundation on top to "lessen pigmentation".
  • Highly recommended to be used on brides!
  • For Custard Cream: Works really well for people with fair to medium skin tone.
  • For Coral Cream: Works well for people with fair to dark skin tone.  (Heavier application maybe needed for people with darker skin tone.)
Will I repurchase?
Yes!

To whom do I recommend this to?
Works for all skin types!  The shades Custard Cream and Coral cream works from dark to fair skin!

Lightly blended with fingers

Custard Cream Application

Custard Cream, matte,  is light yellow orange in shade. Once it sets on my (MAC's) NC20-25 skin, the effect turned out to be more orange as seen on photo below.

Custard Cream applied on both cheeks

Coral Cream Application

With the same type of application above, Coral Cream, also matte, looks a tad bit more peachy orange on my cheeks.  If I want the coral shade to appear heavier, I can apply a second layer of it as intensity can always be controlled with the creamy consistency of this cream blush!

Have you tried Majolica Majorca's Cream de Cheeks?
Which shade would you pick based on my swatch and photos above?
I think both Custard Cream and Coral Cream looks good on any skin color and I tend to pick Custard Cream if I'm aiming for light blush and go for Coral Cream if I like more color on my cheeks!

  3. I'm very much liking coral cream and one of my favorite liquid/gel blushes because it looks so natural when worn. But sad to say it lasted on me for only 3hrs I just put a primer underneath to keep it lasted for the whole day. -Herschel
