FINALLY: Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus Mascara Review

Finally! That's the same exact word I said when I first started using this mascara from Majolica Majorca. I used to ignore Majo Majo's stalls in malls because I thought it was a brand meant for the younger generations, primarily because of their colorful, grandiose, sparkly, and Disney-ish product packaging. But that one fateful day, I stopped by their stall at SM North Edsa, and checked out their items. To this day forward, I'm thankful I did because I FINALLY found my HG mascara. Woot!

Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus Mascara

I personally think I have ugly eye lashes. They're kind of short, sparse and thin. And I did some damage to them a year ago when I decided to have eye lash extensions --- repeatedly. I remember waking up each day with falling lashes. So to make them grow back, I had to give them time to rest, and that includes no mascara or any kind of cosmetic near them. When I felt it was the right time to use mascaras again, good thing I gave the Lash Expander Frame Plus Mascara a try.

So enough with the lengthy intro, let's go to the mascara itself.

Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus Mascara

The packaging is cute and very eye-catchy. It looks like a potion bottle, which is slim and short, and covered in gold and black. It doesn't look like your ordinary mascara packaging. The first time I pulled out the wand from the tube, I was quite surprised because it had a very different looking brush, err, comb. Yes it was a comb, a two-sided comb, more aptly, unlike the usual spiral mascara brushes we all know. I was even afraid that the "brush" might not work. But I was told that it was made that way because it's supposed to pick up just enough mascara, so you won't put too much on your lashes and cause clumping. Makes sense.

The "comb"

The product doesn't really do well in volumizing, but volume is not really my concern, especially when I just need to give my lashes a good lift. But with lengthening, this baby is superb. It contains tiny black hair fibers which when applied, gives the lashes a long, lush and full look.

The comb, I discovered, has its special purpose aside from picking up just enough product. The fine and narrow side is responsible for the lengthening and separating of the lashes, while the broad and saw-tooth side is for the eyeliner effect (the dolly eye look). Talk about definition! The applicator really does a great job in distributing the product very evenly, without clumps or anything.

Let's see the "transformation" it did to my ugly lashes, hahaha. =)

please excuse my bare ugly lashes
Straight and Sparse
One Coat

Amazing, isn't it? Even on the first coat, I was already impressed. On most ordinary days, I use just one coat, but when I'm out and about, three coats will get me noticed. If I want to achieve thickness, I just add a few more coats and amazingly enough, I haven't experienced any clumping, smudging or flaking at all.

Two coats
Three coats
Full lashes

For staying power, it's super duper waterproof! I think if you don't use a potent eye makeup remover, it will stay there forever. hahaha. =) Water and soap will not be enough, so make sure you use a good eye makeup remover.

Hands down to this mascara, I have nothing negative to say about it. At 795pesos, it might be a bit steep for some, but with all due respect, the price is still reasonable given its performance and quality. It's definitely worth it!

I will surely repurchase again, and again, and again.

By the way, yesterday, I dropped by their SM North Edsa stall again and I was told by the SA that the Lash Expander Frame Plus Mascara in Midnight Blue Black (which is a limited edition) is on a Buy 1 Take 1 Sale! What a great deal so you better hurry. =)

Any thoughts? Have you or would you try this mascara from Majolica Majorca?
