Majolica Majorca Lash King



One member of my mascara drawer has hung around longer than the rest - fear not, it's not off, it's just gone unopened since it landed in my hands and if you've just cast your minds back to my Best Asian Beauty Buys post, you might have an idea on what this is about. The Majolica Majorca Lash King gets nothing but good reviews and since it's not readily available out this way, I'd refrained from starting on it as hopes were high and I knew if I were to fall in love, the struggle would be real to get hold of another. Alas, the time came and I recently swept it on for the first time ever and I can say that the wait was worth it...



I'll let you in on the need know, and that is that it comes as one of the best-selling mascaras within the Asian beauty market, in actual fact as a drugstore brand by the high-end name Shiseido, but my research suggests that it still sits at the higher end of the price scale - phew, you with me? So let's talk formula for starters, and full of fibres this formula is, latching onto the shortest of lashes to amp up volume and length and the addition of a quick-drying oil means the results are fully sweat and waterproof which helps too, to hold a day-long curl.  Brush wise, it's described as an 'acrobat' - I'm taking that means it flexibly reaches lashes at every given angle, but to you and me, it's long, thin with short bristles that supply the fibres - easy to use, especially with those smaller strands. It takes a bit of getting used to, but it seriously works and whilst I find it doesn't smudge or budge, the fibres tend to become a little fly-away and post-application, I'll often find a couple sporadically chillin' on my cheeks, nothing a foundation brush can sweep away though, eh?

In terms of packing, the words, fun, bright but seriously bulky come into play, and I ended up removing my mascara from said packet because it really did take up too much space. With that said, there's an awful lot of info scrawled onto it, none of which I could personally make out, but the tube design itself reflects its original housing. 

All in all, a great little lash-building tool, though one that's not all to easy to get your hands on, on this side of the world. I have however, found it floating about on Amazon for a little more than what you'd expect to pay, but if you've been hoping to get your hands on it, here's your chance...

  1. Quite a few years ago I used and loved the Majolica Majorca Lash frame expander plus (or something, I forget the exact name haha!) and I loved how it held a curl, and how the fibres lengthened my lashes. This one sounds just as great!

  5. I picked it up in China Town in London..I didn't like it. It was really hard to remove and didn't do anything great to my lashes. Threw it out after a few uses :/
