In other news, Majolica Majorca is set to be launched in Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia and Hong Kong in Watsons' drugstores at the end of September! This is incredibly exciting news and I can't wait to be able to see MM in my local Watsons :-) This is even though I haven't been a big fan of MM's recent releases but it was one of the first Japanese drugstore brands that I first got hooked on and I have great nostalgia for it.

Hopefully, the prices will not be marked up too much compared to Japan. Now, if only Watsons will also bring in Lavshuca, Excel, Kiss and Gransenbon, that would complete my dream!

Hey Moonflower,

Gransenbon is coming? Wow, that's really excellent! Guess someone at Watsons has been reading Cozycot and picking up some tips!

Hi Haru,

it's good to know MM is coming to SG and Msia. Delighted! Just wish that it's in full range and the new release won't be slow! And lucky you girls! Having Gransenbon in JP! I hope Msia has it too!!!

I just wish the markup for both brands won't be high... if not... it's so sad for my pocket.

And on a side note, I just receive confirmation from Watson's Malaysia that Canmake is to be withdrawn from all outlets. Was wondering if SG is the same too?

Sigh, to get Canmake now is through Sasa, which is disastrous! Online spree then~ >_<

Hi Iris & Moonflower,

these are such an incredible piece of great news!!! :) Can't wait to see MM's pretty advertisement stand in Watsons, and I miss Gransenbon blushers too!!! =D

Thanks ladies! U brightened my Monday@work. :)

Hey Plue,

That's a shame that Canmake is being pulled from Malaysia. I'm not sure how well it is doing in Singapore but I suspect probably not too good as its prices here are quite a big higher than Japan and not as affordable as say, Silky Girl. But there are discounts on it from time to time during Watsons' sales so hopefully that helps. I still get the Canmake stuff I want CP'd from Japan directly as I'm too impatient to wait for them to be released here. But frankly, I don't buy a lot of Canmake, just the occasional blusher or eyeshadow.

I'm not too impressed with Gransenbon's blushes at the moment as the ones that I got largely turned out to be mostly shimmer with less than impressive color payoff. Hopefully the new shades #13 and #14 are better. I really should have gotten #6, 7 and 8 when I had the chance! Ah well... But still, I really hope it makes it to Singapore.

It is definitely good news! In the past few mths, the Jap grocery stores here are bringing in more Jap drugstore cosmetics. E.g. Gransenbon and Bihada Ichizoku! It is really exciting! The range is rather limited i.e. Gransenbon blushers and face powder, no e/s ... yet! Perhaps MM is on the horizon!

Haru said...

Hey Michelle,

it's great to hear from you!

That's fantastic that the Japanese grocery stores are bringing in Gransenbon blushes etc. The blushes are the more outstanding items in Gransenbon's range, the rest look quite average.

I still haven't gotten around to trying my Bihada Ichizoku face sheet masks yet ;-p

Majolica Majorca in Malaysia??!! That's a dream come true... *swoons*
Now, if only they would bring in more Japanese drugstore brands in the future!
