Majolica Majorca Skin Lingerie (OD Control)

Did I talk about this Majolica Majorca item yet? I keep having the feeling I did. Let me know if I did cuz I gotta delete this one hehe.

This product is a makeup base and I believe it's the only one that MM came out with. I got this in Hong Kong and I can't remember how much it was...$10CAD??? (sorry I always use difference currencies, but you can convert to whatever currency to use to get an approx. amount).
I didn't start using this product until a few days ago, prior to that I've been finishing up my little jar of the P&J Moisturizing Foundation Primer and I've been using the P&J UV Base. I'm quite strange...since the P&J base cost so much, I almost don't want to finish it up so quickly. I use the P&J UV base only once in a while.
I never really saw the point of using a makeup base, even though I knew it was good for many reasons. I was told by an SA that it prevents the foundation from seeping into my skin too much, but I don't know how true that is. There's a point in me using a makeup base now because I've started to use foundation more often (about a month ago).
Other than the bases I've mentioned, the only other one I've tried was the Laneige base in the lavender shade. I got it 2 years ago and I didn't bring it to Korea with me, which I really regret. I'm probably gonna get another jar here cuz the one at home will be no good, I think it's 25000won.


This base comes in a cute plastic tub and it only contains 20g of product but I think it'll last me a while.
Back in Toronto, an SA at Pacific Mall told me this base was for oil control, so I assume OD control has something to do with that.
The base feels like a gel and spreads really easily and smoothly. I only use a pea sized amount because a little goes a long way.


There is no color and it doesn't brighten or anything and it smells kinda like plasticky face cream. There's also no sun protection and it doesn't feel sticky like other bases. When I first tried it, I assumed it wouldn't hold my foundation very well because it didn't feel tacky/sticky when applied. I was quite surprised that there was minimal fading, even after an 8 hour work day.
Another plus with this base is that it keeps my skin very moisturized! It doesn't even feel like it. Usually after a few hours, I will notice a bit of flakyness on my cheeks and this didn't happen with the MM base. Even using the P&J Moisturizing Primer, my cheeks will get flaky sometimes. Had I known this, I wouldn't have asked Tim's dad to help me get a full size jar of the P&J primer...which is on the way right now. Oh well, I still like the P&J primers..they smell so nice and it's not like they do a bad job at keeping my foundation on XD

The packaging and the texture looks lovely. Do you think it'll work together with BB creams?

I don't think you've mentioned about the MM OD Control, so don't delete it. Wow.. it sounds really interesting, I never like to apply primer because I don't like too many layers, thought serum and SPF moisturizer are enough to avoid foundation chemical seeping through my skin. But I might search this primer on ebay.. hehe

Hi :) I'm pretty new here hehe. I do have the same primer and I've been using it everyday for slightly more than 3 months and I still haven't finished it yet lol It can last very long.
If your skin is dry, or in my case, really dry, it'd work well. For other skin type, they might feel this primer is tad bit too oily. Nevertheless, it keeps your skin from looking so shiny throughout the day without making it dry.

That sounds very interesting although the no SPF part is a big no-no for me.


Oh and thanks for the comment. Having a thought-provoking post really made my day(birthday in this case)

It looks so cute, I"ve always wanted to try it but after your review I think it will be too moisturizing for me, esp in the upcoming season..

my friend has dark pigmentation too so she uses the lightest lip liner she could find first and then puts the lipstick on top...it works and it looks really pretty ;D

Great review! I love the name, skin lingerie sounds so sexy and luxurious! I've never used a makeup base...do you also use primer when you use this base or do you use this base and forgo the primer?

Ohh that's awesome you like it better than the P&J primer...though the P&J packaging is lovely!

I dyed my hair and got a hair cut! I truly hated my hair last week, hehe. I just posted a quick video, too tired to add photos and all that but maybe I will tomorrow so you can see the difference.

Hope you're having a great week!
