Majolica Majorca Skin Lingerie Pore Cover Review

Majolica Majorca is a low-end sub brand of Shiseido. It is very popular in Japan and had made it ways to Malaysia's shore. It is most famous for super cute and vintage packaging, the great quality of their products and is affordable. I had tried SkinFood's Pore Mini Balm and I liked the powdery texture it turned into when applied on my skin but unfortunately my skin broke out because the balm kind of blocked my pores. So I didn't use any pore minimizer or concealer after that for some time. So when I saw Majolica Majorca's Skin Lingerie Pore Cover, I was intrigued to try it out.

Majolica Majorca Skin Lingerie Pore Cover is a makeup base that conceals pores perfectly for porcelain doll skin. It conceals skin's imperfections such as pimple scars or redness with its pearlescent effect giving the skin a flawless effect like a porcelain doll. It has shine-catch powder that keeps shine away. It's putty silicon base and spherical powder treat uneven skin and a film of softened Silicon powder smoothens out imperfections. It's lustrous pearl-like powder conceals redness and gives skin a nice glow.

A tube of Majolica Majorca Skin Lingerie Pore Cover.

The Skin Lingerie Pore Cover is comes in a soft plastic tube with a honey coloured screw on cap. It is packaged in a see through plastic box (I threw out mine a long time ago). The product weighs 25 g and has SPF20. It is great for day wear. The back of the tube is printed with product information (I gather) in Japanese.
Nihongo anyone?

The cap unscrews revealing a narrow pointed outlet with a small hole for the liquid to flow out.

The Skin Lingerie Pore Cover's texture is soft and is like liquid foundation. It has a light honey colour to it.  I didn't use it as a make up base because I don't wear any foundation or blusher but just as a protecting  cream base on its own. It is easy to blend on my skin and turns into powdery finish giving the skin a matte look. It also helps my skin to stay oil-free for a couple of hours before my over active oil glands starts to kick into action. I like the soft and powdery feel my skin felt after using this. It also made my skin tone looked even and less oily. But the only problem I had is that my face broke out after about two weeks of using this. Once again, a great product out in the market but I can't use it.

Here's what the pore cover liquid looked like on the back of my hand:

Barely there.

My verdict: I liked the product and how it made my skin tone more even. I also liked the fact that it has SPF20 which makes it great for day wear. The finishing is nice and smooth without making my skin feel oily or sticky. My only problem with it is that it made my skin break out. So, as great a product this is, I am certain I can't use it and would not purchase it again. What a sad thing..
