Majolica Majorca in Black
First stop, I have a confession to make. I'm not a mascara person. Truth be told, this is my first mascara purchase in my entire life! All of my mascaras are either sponsored or gift items. Hence, this specific goodie on the left hand corner has an interesting story behind it!

Me and my good friend Maya were walking around the beauty section of SM Makati when we noticed it was unusually crowded this side of the mall. Lo and behold, we saw a glimpse of Laureen Uy and Camille Co. Both are equally beautiful and nice! No wonder girls, young and not-so-young alike, have swamped the area.

Going back, I told Maya that I'll go to the rest room first then we'll meet at Watsons. When I stepped out of the escalator, some girls 'kidnapped' me and next thing I know, I was in front of the big mirror with black and gold trimmings that reads some kind of a magic chant: Ma-jo-li-ca Ma-jor-ca (Majolica Majorca), like a kindergarten I read in my mind. Fast forward >>> I just had my first purchased mascara after Camille Co's sweet prodding. How can I say no? :-)

☺Made in Japan. You know how meticulous Japanese cosmetics are.
 This one is no exception. No unusual smell and quality-wise it's A+.
☺ Exquisite packaging. Like Korean beauty products, Japanese products are
 particular in terms of packaging. Not only in makeups, have you opened 
Lotte biscuit or Macadamia Nuts lately?
☺Easy on the eyes. For a bionic pair of eyes like mine, I'm very careful 
what to put unto them. Kidding, no bionic eyes, just underegone a 
LASIK treatment, from a Japanese aesthetic company too!

☺Waterproof. Another bang for your buck. *Wink!

Disclaimer: In the interest of testing the product thoroughly:
Eyeliner? None, Eyelash curler? None Eyeshadow? None
Does it deliver? For me, it's a YES! 
For someone who has sparse lashes, difference is noticeable.

☻Price. I understand that Japanese products are top of the line, 
however, price factor is definitely a something to be considered.
☻Removing them is a challenge. Talk about staying power! Best to use 
oil-based makeup removers as opposed to water based ones. 

I'm glad I stepped out of my comfort zone and bought this neat product.
If I'll repurchase or not, still undecided. Let's see. 
For now, I'm still enjoying twinkling my eye up and down. 
So Betty Boop-ish! -CMK
