BR799, and the accompanying BR788 (a palette of warmer browns), was a permanent release from MAJOLICA MAJORCA’s Holiday 2008 collection. I remember contemplating BR799 when it was first released, not least because of a comparison to GUERLAIN’s Bal de Minuit in Hanamizuki, but I ended up devoting myself to LUNASOL, and I can’t remember what else if any at all, instead. Partly because I wasn’t too keen on the Illuminator series. I’m not sure why MAJOLICA MAJORCA decided to release these two palettes in the older Illuminator series with its accompanying icky cream shade instead of the newer Trick On series, which were first released for Spring 2008 and then again for Autumn 2008.

I’ve been using this for the better part of two weeks, and while I’m itching to pick up something else, I’ve also decided I like this palette as much as the other two I have from MJ (GR741 and GR750, both from the Trick On series), if not more. I find the neutral shades in BR799 much more wearable than the greens (and a navy) in both GR palettes, so I’m more inclined to look favourably upon BR799. The truth is that, while GR741 and GR750 are very pretty to look at, I hardly use them for fear of looking too colourful (and bright).

this palette was released as part of MAJOLICA MAJORCA‘s autumn/winter 2008 collection — a girl with wings. the other majolook palette from that collection is brown themed and didn’t look as appealing to me so i skipped it. (´ω`*)ネー they’re both permanent (for the moment, but palettes tend to get discontinued when similar looking ones are released later) so they’ll be around for a while anyway.

i wrote about an older trick on palette, the limited edition GR744 from the spring/summer 2008 collection, here. much of that post also applies to this palette so this is mostly a swatch post. ( ´∀`)ケラケラ

the trick on palettes were first released this year with the spring collection. all four shades are now powder shadows. the dodgy cream liner/highlighter of the older versions has been discarded and the powder shadows have been reformulated. YAY! XD GR741 was the LE release from spring. it’s sold out now, but the other two spring palettes are permanent and still available. they’re also more boring browns and pinks. = =+ two more trick on palettes were released with the autumn collection, and they’re both on my shopping list. XD
