Majolica Majorca Sale

The Watsons store at Bugis Junction currently has a 20% discount on Majolica Majorca until 13 January. This is the first time that Watsons is offering a discount on Majolica Majorca so it's just too good to miss. Although the sign said that the discount is not applicable to new and promotional items, a check with the cashier confirmed that the new Christmas collection products are included in the discount!

I had previously balked at the original retail price but for 20% off, I decided to get the All Night Compact and Midnight Dresser. Both are priced at S$30.50. After the discount, each is only S$24.40. Pretty good deal! I'm not sure if the discount is available only at certain Watsons stores as MM was not on sale at the Watsons at Vivocity last weekend.

I liked the cheerful cherry red plastic compact which has silver glitter sprinkled on the top lid. It sits just nicely in my palm and is great for touch-ups on the go as you can just throw it in your bag without worrying that it will get dented.

The included cotton puff applicator feels quite soft. A clear plastic film is also provided to separate the cotton puff from the surface of the face powder.

The face powder (6.5g) has a very fine pearl shimmer and is not glittery like the Ettusais Platinum Star Powder.

The ingredients list. The printed expiry date is September 2014.

The Midnight Dresser palette's packaging looks more tacky as it is cardboard with the metal mesh printed on both sides.

Nevertheless, the interior is actually quite nice with a lace-like plastic film to protect the eyeshadows and lip shades. Both the eyeshadows and lip shades are easy-to-wear shades that would suit most complexions. However, the lack of applicators means these are less convenient for toting on the go. The expiry date is also printed as September 2014.

Uhm, I come here with a warning, Love your blog and everything but when you showed me the ingredients on the back side of the compact I instantly freaked out. The main ingredient is TALC, which is a carcinogen meaning it causes cancer.
When inhaled, the talc can enter your lungs and irritate them causing cancer of the lungs. I suggest you get a refund on that product.
