Prime Time | Majolica Majorca Skin Lingerie Pore Cover.

Remember my post about the Lash King? I was greatly impressed by this mascara that I made a resolve to try other products from Shiseido's 'pocket-friendly' makeup line, Majolica Majorca.

And so the last time I was in the metro, I made a beeline to SM Makati and did some makeup shopping. One of the things I ended up buying was the Majolica Majorca Skin Lingerie Pore Cover for Php 695.
Majolica Majorca Skin Lingerie Pore Cover.
It's a primer/makeup base, and as per the English translation stuck at the back of the plastic box, it 'instantly smoothes concerned pores and red cheeks for a more refined complexion' 
Yay for English literature!
The product comes in a 25g squeeze tube. With a size this handy, the Skin Lingerie Pore Cover can easily fit into any makeup kit.
There's always something so elegant about Majolica Majorca's packaging.
Correct me if I'm wrong but I read somewhere that this product used to come in jars, which I'm not too fond of. I'm glad they now come in tubes, which for me, is more hygienic. It has a long, thin nozzle, and you can control the amount of the primer you use based on how hard you squeeze the tube.
Main squeeze? :)
 Oh, and plus points for this product's sun protection factor - SPF 20 PA+ to be exact.
The gold, perhaps? :)
Now here's how the product looks like.
Just a pea-sized amount...
It's tinted, yes. But it becomes translucent once you've spread it on your skin. 
... spread, spread.
The product has a silky feel, and is very easy to blend. And once it does, you get a nice, matte finish. And true to its description, the Skin Lingerie Pore Cover does a good job of concealing redness and making pores less visible.
Left: Without primer / Right: With primer.
Now what I love most about this product is how it keeps my makeup intact for more or less 10 hours in this unforgiving, makeup-melting, 30-plus-degree Philippine weather. That being said, Majolica Majorca has impressed me yet again!
What I love:
- Hygienic, tube packaging
- Travel-friendly size
- Easy to blend
- A little amount goes a long way
- Silky feel
- Matte finish
- Covers pores, conceals redness
- SPF20 PA+
- No allergies, no breakouts
- Keeps your makeup intact for a good number of hours
- Affordable

What you might not like:
- I really can't think of any, save for the fact that this product comes in one size only :)

Ending this post with an FOTD! (For comparison, you can find my bare face in this post. Haha.)
Products used:
FACE: Majolica Majorca Skin Lingerie Pore Cover, Missha Under Eye Brightener,

Which reminds me, I have yet to try the Little Humming Book I, which I bought together with this product. Will it impress me the same way the Lash King and the Pore Cover did? We'll see! :)

I love this product as well! I already used up two tubes of this! :D

I want to try this! Won't it overdry my face though? My skin is sort of on the dry side.

Eunice said...

This is such a timely review for I'm looking for a nice primer that does not have adverse skin effects. I'm currently using Manual Override's primer but I find it too drying. =(

Skin Lingerie sounds fancy! You reviews such great beauty products. Is this one available in the States?

Queen Stepmom said...

Hi Cynthia!
I'm not sure if there are stores in the US that carry the Majolica Majorca line, but you can purchase them online via YesStyle. :)

Ok I am convinced I might give this a try since I read the magic word Matte! :) but it might be too light for my skintone?

Franc said...

It's nice that the product is handy so you can use it to conceal pores whenever you need it.

Primer is what's missing in my kikay kit. Will check this out sis. Love MM's packaging nga, and I didn't know na mag-sister sila ni Shiseido =)

I'm am clueless with makeup, save for lipstick and powders... hahahah... so i never used primer. This one looks nice esp since it has SPF, which I am now considering when buying makeup.

Karen Dawkins said...

You'd cringe at my makeup regime! I use regular old body lotion on my face. No primer, just a dusting of powder and blush and a quick swipe of mascara.
