I bought Shiseido‘s Majolica Majorca Lash King mascara after reading rave reviews about it on the internet.Majolica Majorca is a sub brand of Shiseido sold at drug stores.I have been using Maybelline for quite some years now(review here) but since my mascara is almost over I purchased this one.

I bought it in black, the shade is BK999.I paid 14$ for a tube of 6gms.
The packaging is cute, very fancy and Japanese.There is a crown on the label as well as the cap slightly resembles a crown.It is designed to be fit for a princess.

The mascara wand is straight with a dense thin spikes.It has a lot of fibres.I actually have never used a mascara with fibres before, so my first reaction was “Has something gone wrong with this tube”.Then I checked on the net and found out that it has 5mm long fibres that are supposed to stick on your lashes for more volume(but I’m not sure if it makes any difference).
The mascara is dry so it does not have any volumizing effect(this is one secret I have learnt with all these months of blogging!!)It has no curl lifting effect.Though there is a lengthening effect.It leaves the lashes soft.It gives more of a soft natural look.It hold the curls well that is if you have curled your lashes before hand(with Maybelline I never even had to curl my lashes)
It is smudge proof, waterproof, sweat proof and even tear proof.
But overall I am not happy with the product and now there lies ahead of me, a difficult task of finishing the entire tube!!It is good for those who like separate lashes, unlike me, who is a sucker for a dramatic spidery look with loads of volume!!
I will not purchase it again.
P.S.Do enter my give away to win this gorgeous bag from Tosca, here..
