This morning I was roaming around Isetan KLCC for washroom (lesser people compare with outside) at the kids section but the washroom is only for “kids” so I didn’t enter. I passed by this display below, take a glance of it, walked off and reverse back.
I couldn’t believe what I saw. It’s Majolica Majorca pen which is available at Japan and now it’s right in front of my eyes.
So I bought all colors. Pink, Red, Orange, Black, Blue and Green.
I took some time off from work and headed to Isetan Anniversary Sales on Friday morning. The first day usually is closed for Isetan members. I was told there’s a Paul & Joe and Anna Sui further markdown 2 weeks ago and I was really excited. I go in from Ground Floor and went straight up to 4th floor at “The Gallery” where the cosmetic and fragrance fair is held. Here’s my damage.
I didn’t know where Paul & Joe counter is at so I took my time to browse around for other stuff and then I saw them. My target is to get lipstick, eyeshadow, 2-way foundation but there’s no single lipstick or eyeshadow for sale. Everything is packed in a set and we can’t choose the lipstick or lip gloss colour that are in the set. I was delighted to see that Paul & Joe Protective Dual Powder Foundation UV Set selling at RM158 which comes with a free refill and lip gloss. Next I decided to grab Paul & Joe Face Color & Lip Gloss Coffret Set for RM109.
Face Color C is actually powder balls just like Guerlain’s. I never have this before so I got it anyway eventhough RM109 to me is kinda expensive considering the items in the set is very little and I don’t like/wear lip gloss.
Drawstring satin pouch is made from thick satin material which doesn’t feel flimsy at all. It’s kinda cute too 🙂
The most value for money and anticipated purchase for me is this Paul & Joe Protective Dual Powder Foundation UV Set which comes with a retail compact, refill pack and a Lip Gloss N. All that for RM158. The compact itself costs RM150. Basically I just add RM8 for the refill and lip gloss! LOL.

Closed-up look at the set.
I moved over to Anna Sui for mascara but they only offer 30% off from retail price which is not really a lot saving if I were to compare with all the counter there. So I moved to Shiseido counter and managed to grabbed MAQuillAGE Full Vision Mascara #BK999 for RM40 and two Eye Color N which is eyeshadow base for RM17.50 each. When I checked the mascara the next morning, to my horror the mascara is all dried up. So I brought it along with me the next day (yes I went again with my colleague) and ask for an exchange. I was told straight to my face that they don’t allow exchange. I screamed a lil to her saying that I bought a mascara from them, it’s dried up and I can’t exchange? She said yes they don’t allow exchange. I repeated myself again this time with a hard tone and she said she’d ask from another colleague. I overheard her colleague saying to her that they must exchange for me and I was relieved. When the lady came back to me with an answer, she told me to choose another item. I was so annoyed. I insist that I want a mascara and she said it’s sold out. AIYO. SAY SO LA EARLIER. The lady didn’t even mentioned about sold out. She just blindly ask me to choose another item. So I chose a blusher for an exchange with the same price. Phew. Long story huh.
Shiseido MAQuillAGE Eye Color N – RM17.50 each & ShiSeido Accentuating Powder Blush #B2 Rosy Beige – RM40
This is the exact colour. Not as light as above picture. This applies to be more natural. Not too white or too pinky.
I was happy to see Majolica Majorca there as well. I skipped their eyeshadow which is dirt cheap comparing with drugstore. I only grabbed two Lash Gorgeous Wing mascara for RM29.90 each.
Next. I walked down to Ground Floor to Clarins counter to get HydraQuench Starter Kit which is selling at RM78. This is very similar to Truly Matte Best Busy Set. Only missing a cleanser.
Majolica Majorca is having 50% discount on their single eyeshadow at Watsons and I’ve been searching for BE286 which is a beige, peachy gold shimmering shadow as highlight for brow bone but to my disappointment the stocks at Watsons Kajang is manufactured in 2009 and there’s no more in Mid Valley. I managed to track down these at the newly renovated Watsons KLCC. I bought the last 2 piece on the shelf. The manufacture date stated is 28/1/2011.
Majolica Majorca Single Eyeshadow BE286 – RM10.45 after 50% discount.
I love love love their gold logo!
The colour look like just an ordinary light beige but to my surprise it turns out to be a “sun-kissed” peachy gold colour which really makes me happy somehow in a way which is weird.
The colour payoff is very good! It’s very pigmented and intense.
I’m happy that I found this because I dropped and broke my favourite Stila single eyeshadow in Kitten a few weeks ago. I’m thinking to go back and get some more eyeshadow in different colours. What do you think?
Majolica Majorca Lash Enamel Glamour Neo is a discontinued item and it was replaced with Lash Enamel Glamour Volume On. Kathi of Lotus Palace love this mascara and I thought this is really good. Which explains why I managed to find this after it’s discountinued.
I got this from Ai Candy Affaire for RM39 brand new. I decided to collect from the seller to save RM6 of PosLaju and the seller stay nearby Mid Valley.
For the first few days, I totally hated it. It was disappointing. It’s not as good as what I’ve read. To me, it’s just too wet and dries very slow. But today I made a decision to do it slowly, apply lesser fiber only to the root and let my fiber dries out before applying mascara as well as letting my 1st coat dries before applying 2nd coat.
Picked up Majolica Majorca Lash Bone Black Fiber In from Watsons Mid Valley by accident for RM49.90. I was looking for the white mascara base but chose this because of the latest manufactured date. Only realised this when I got home. It’s kinda expensive but been drooling over this with a hope that this can save my right eyelash which is shorter than my left eye. Both my eyelashes “used” to be same length. Maybe due to those eyelash essence which I tried a year ago?
This mascara base is upgraded version of the previous lash bone. Previous one are good according to many beauty bloggers and this new version contains black “hair” or fiber in it.
I love the gold logo on top of the cap!
The fibers looks gross. Ewww. This mascara base is scentless.
Then… I got something from Watson’s current on-going promotion. Buy RM20 & above and get this at RM11.83. Usual Price is RM16.90.
This is my second bottle of Maybelline Eye & Lip Make Up Remover. My first bottle is bought at a cheap price from a similar promo. This is a good remover. Which is why I don’t need it now and I still buy it :).
*** Pls ignore the terrible image which is taken from my BB as my digicam is spoilt 🙁
Anyway, went on some drugstore & Sasa shopping spree yesterday with mummy.
First stop is Watson’s. Been searching for some lipgloss and I find that Majorlica Majorca’s Honey Pump Gloss Neo is the perfect lil size for me. The tube is not too big and not too small. Perfect size for people who’s “hangat-hangat tahi ayam” like me lol.
Got this in PK247. Although it look darn pinkish but I love how it came out nude on the lips. Name: Majorlica Majorca Honey Pump Gloss Neo (PK247) Price: RM17.91 after discount
My thought: ABSOLUTELY loving this! Its not sticky at all and stays on for hours. I love how it turns to nude pink when applied although it looks very pink from the outside. It looks like it contains some shimmer but not noticable after applied. Weird. Will definately bought another colour. Maybe the beige neutral colour?
Asience came out with a new type of hair product range which is for normal to oily scalp, hair that is prone to tagling and lacks volume. So I decided to try it. Name: Asience Nature Smooth Shampoo Price: RM14.90
My thought: Not so keen with the scent. I still prefer the scent from Deep Nourishing line.
Was looking for some cheap & good facial cleanser and this was on a promo; buy 2nd item for 50% discount. How can I resist this. It’s darn cheap. Mum agrees too. Name: Garnier Aqua Defence Moisturizing Cleansing Foam Price: RM10.90 for 1st tube, RM5.45 for 2nd tube
My thought: Its good in removing dirt and oil from my face. Smells like Bath & Body Works in Cucumber Melon. Cheap, affordable & good!
My thought: Good for back acne. Won’t write much on this as I reviewed this before at my previous blog. Will post it out here soon.
After all of that, we went to next door which Sasa is. Been wanting to get Canmake eyeshadow badly as theirs is the most shimmering of all I ever seen hehe. As soon as we got in, one of the sales girl was quarrelling with the store supervisor. It was bad & humiliating till the sales girl who was serving me feels bad and ashame. Mum obviously was in shock of all that lol. Me on the other hand pretending nothing happen and continue to choose the eyeshadow. I was previously in retail operation so all this isn’t a big deal for me. But I still think that no matter what, they are not suppose to quarrel in front of customers.
Anyway, was thinking to get blue shadows. Then changed my mind to earthy neutral colour. Then decided to get this with a light pinkish peach instead. I’m so indecisive.
Name: Canmake Eye Nuance (#22) Price: RM31.35 after 15% discount from RM36.90
My thought: Looks very shimmery and gorgeous. Kinda disappointed as it turns to very light nude colour if applied with eyeshadow brush :(. I re-dab the light pink using my finger and looks at least a bit of pink. Well, at least it doesn’t give me puffy eyes. The dark colour is very pigmented but not shimmery. Hmmm weird. I actually was thinking to sell this off & get another colour! *lol*
