Majolica Majorca Pressed Porecover Powder 2011 Limited Edition

The Majolica Majorca Pressed Porecover Powder 2011 Limited Edition was going for 20% + 10% off at the recent Watson's Members sale, which priced it at close to the Japan retail of 1700 yen for 10g of face powder. I had never desired any Majolica compact previously, but on that particular day, the shiny jade green case with the popout design looked like a combination of mint and hard candy to me.

Sugar craving abated, it is a plasticky compact, reminiscent of a contact lens case. A very basic pressed powder with neither shimmer, nor coverage, nor scent. It comes with a sponge and a mirror under the cover. Convenient for touch ups on the go, I still prefer using loose powders as pressed powders seem to give me a whitish cast or in this case, a slightly grey cast which dulls the complexion, though it makes my skin smooth.

There are no beneficial plant extracts or vitamins except for tocopherol which is more likely added as a preservative. Keep for the novelty.
