finally~! i'm back in action!

I'm back! Tadaima~!
I wasn't able to blog because of pc problems... im just glad that i got everything back!
Yokatta na!
I panicked when my pc won't start at all & kept thinking of the worst scenario... which would be saying goodbye to all my books, pictures & notes. Good thing that everything is fine now & my memory is a lot bigger now. Double yay!

Last Saturday, i went to the Majolica Majorca Workshop together with one of my really dear friend, Kite. She said she hasn't attended a make-up workshop before & is looking forward to it.

Here are some of the products that they carry...

I am really intrigued on their Skin Lingerie Pore Cover because i am really looking for a good primer that doesn't have silicone on. I asked their MUA if it contains silicone & unfortunately it does.
so sad...

By the way, they have a new collection called "Glass Trick". See their wall?

MM mascara is one of the best!
I would really love to buy their mascara but the price is outrageous! They retail for Php 795. Im sorry for bursting any bubbles that you have over me that i prefer high-end brands because im a poor beauty blogger. haha! I am just an average woman with an average budget when it comes to cosmetics.

I refuse to spend more than Php 500 for a product that i can only use for 3 months. But if you have the money to burn, then try it. I'm sure that it's worth every peso!

Before the workshop started they introduced Majolica Majorca & what's behind the name...
I said before that i find the packaging of MM really cute & there is actually a story behind their logo.

Once upon a time there lived a bird.
She was small, and insignificant, and had no beautiful feathers or a shiny tail.
But her heart was innocent and true.

The bird loved beautiful things, and she always wished she could become beautiful too.
Each and every day she searched and searched for feathers that were beautiful or unusual, and adorned her body with them.
Before she knew it, the bird had become strangely attractive and unlike any other. 
Her beauty was totally unique, fascinating and captivating.

The Goddess of Beauty had watched all this, and she felt admiration for the bird’s courage and aesthetic creativity.
The Goddess chanted a spell: “MAJOLICA MAJORCA!”

Then a wonderful thing happened!
The feathers adorning the bird’s body all became real, and a tiny crown appeared on top of the bird’s head.

The bird had become the Goddess’ chosen princess, an evangelist of beauty.
“Now,” said the Goddess to the bird, “Go forward into the world and make all the girls beautiful.”

Isn't that story nice?
That's what Majolica Majorca has been doing ever since!

Anyway, the workshop is good for those who doesn't have a basic idea about make-up application. They covered the day to night make-up.

After the workshop, Aimee, said hello.
I'm glad that she actually approached me because i would have missed her if not. Aimee is really gorgeous!

I hope that we would get to see each other some other time in different events,sweetie!

I'll try to make-up for the time that i wasn't able to blog,hunnies.
I'll be posting a couple of reviews this week.

Hope you all are enjoying your weekend!
Jaa ne~!

welcome back! LOL! :D

Are you allergic to silicone? Etude House's goodbye forever has silicone, but it has a moisturizer feel to it. it has mica too :D if you just hate the texture of silicone primers, this should be good. :D

Ida said...

Thiamere, I agree, that's why I didn't get their mascara though I was intrigued by it. That's a cute story. Welcome back! :)

Rose said...

that was a nice story behind their name! <3

awww i did not come early so i did not know the story to answer to the game question about the logo :P also did not take photos of the prods, so crowded after kc hehe i kinda semi forgot ahaha! hope to meet u again hihi :"> btw can i borrow our picture ^^

Clair said...

such a cute story! oh and yes, ang mahal nung mascara :( but i guess it's ok if you really could afford it and if you'd be using it that often?

KatrinaLangomez said...

So cool! I love majolica majorca and i believe i get my monies worth with a good lot of their products. As for the skin lingerie XD it doesn't really cover pores not that i've observed or rather it doesn't have much different than when i don't use it. The most significant thing i noticed was when i use it my skin doesn't oxidize and that's pretty amazing feat in itself since when my skin oxidizes i get pretty dark. I hope i can go to a workshop of theirs but i find it pricey since well there's the free internet resource but hey its a nice thought. Thanks for sharing owo

i'd just like to say... you are one refreshing blogger... i've been reading beauty blogs for a while now and this is the first time i read someone who actually sticks to a realistic budget. most everyone would show you really great make up looks but if you look at their cosmetic lineup, it's outrageous how much they spend on it. sometimes i think to myself, if that much worth of makeup doesn't make you look real good, you must look like shrek without it! don't get me wrong i don't have anything against them, it's just that most filipina are on tight budgets and make up shouldn't take most of it. the way they make it sound like, it gives the readers the impression that unless your makeup's totally high end it's worthless. seriously, make up is to beautify and not to make my eyebags grow from all the stress of trying to afford the makeups they endorse. just look at you, you don't spend much on it and yet you're absolutely stunning...

Thiamere Brea said...

i definitely, whole-heartedly agree!
shoot! i love fanny serrano 2 way cake foundation but i still find it expensive even if it's worth it. lol!

i also don't have anything about other bloggers but sometimes i have to admit that it irks me when one would say that a Php1000 mascara is cheap. does that mean that i can't blog anymore just because i consider that price expensive?
haha...hindi ako bitter ha. im just saying.

it's not about the price, nasa pagdadala lang naman yan e,diba?

MereMakeupManiac said...

yey for workshops! i used to love their mascara but i've fallen in love with another brand lol. but theirs is very very good!

Emma Ai said...

exactly! stay sweet and real dear :)

Thiamere Brea said...

i like how the lashes are just so perfectly done!
i haven't tried swimming with it on but i guess that it will really stay..haha!

Marge said...

i love majolica majorca, grabe, buhay pa yung lash expander ko. did you have to get invited to this work shop?

Thiamere Brea said...

Nah, just go to Marionnaud's FB page & they'll give details on their next workshop.
a year had already passed & the texture of my Lash Glamour Neo is still the same as when i opened it! crazy!!!

Marge said...
