Swatches for Majolica Majorca Jewelling Eyes 2010 Autumn Release

Today I walked by Watson's and spotted the new autumn release for the Majolica Majorca Jewelling Eyes. Each palette retails at S$27.50. Here are the swatches of the 3 palettes.




The shadows are well pigmented and the colour payoff is good, except for the lightest colour of each palette, where the powder is less fine and more like sparkles (but this is normal for most sparkly shades). I would recommend the palettes to those who do not own palettes of similar colour combinations.

I would have picked up all palettes if not for the fact I feel most of the palettes look somewhat similar to what I already own. For example, GN-791 looks similar to Chanel's Les 4 Ombres in 16 Murano, BR792 similar to Visee's Glam Hunt Eyes in G-7 and BR793 similar to Coffret D'or's C-Curve Eyes 04. Here are some pics of each palette mentioned.

Coffret D'or C-Curve Eyes in 04

What I mean by the palettes looking similar is not that the colours are the same, but more of the colour combinations being sort of similar. Like for GN-791 and 16 Murano, pink matched with green. BR-792 and Visee G-7, light pale pink matched with different shades of brown. And BR793 and C-Curve Eyes, orange matched with brown.

Of course, the actual colours are still different and the shades are really pretty. So if you are a huge fan of Majolica Majorca, I would say go for it!
