Majolica Majorca Summer 2009: Majolica Majorca Innocent Pleasure

Majolica Majorca has updated it's main portal with the brand new Summer Collection for '09 entitled Innocent Pleasure. Although I can't say I'm all that excited about Majolica Majorca Innocent Pleasure, I can't deny that I always feel a certain hype about viewing the new items released.

Jump ahead for a peek!

In typical Majolica Majorca fashion you have to "find" the new items on the site. The theme of Innocent Pleasure is portrayed in an Adam and Eve-like fashion with a tree, a snake, and tempting goodies hidden within the three.

The collection does make me wired for the new palettes as this is quite a large Summer Collection especially when compared to last year's extremely tiny release. A total of eight palettes are being introduced which is pretty huge for MJ. That's a whole lot of palette. Although the release of eight palettes is very, very exciting, I personally can't help but be disappointed by the same ho-hum color collection that's typical to MJ and most every other Japanese brand. Sigh. Aside from RD784 I'm not feeling the love for any of the shade selections although I imagine I'll indulge in a few if not all since I collect MJ palettes (diseased am I). GR780 should excite those who missed out on GR741 the limited edition palette from the Spring 2008 line up. It's not a total dupe but it is fairly different for MJ to go with aquas/teals.

A brand new solid perfume is also released. I'm not sure as of yet what it smells like but it also looks a tad uneventful but of course, again, I'll def indulge. And finally several new nail polishes.

All in all I find it very exciting that MJ released eight palettes but a bit crestfallen it's the same old colors over and over. Many of the shades are quite similar to palettes I already have from the line. Oh well. One of my readers, Jenn from Japan, was nice enough to share her pamphlet she got while viewing Majolica Majorca at Welcia. Thanks Jenn! We heart you!
