Majolica Majorca Skin Lingerie (old vs new)

New one, old one, which is the better one? Which is the one that fulfills your fantasies?

Majolica Majorca came out with a newer improved version of their old Skin Lingerie. The new one somehow has the additional "Pore Cover" to it's name. Oh, it also claimed to have SPF20 PA+

The older version works fine for me at the beginning or should I say for the first half of the bottle.
Somehow, I do not know why, when the product run low, the quality dropped too. I was sad at that time as my first impression on it was, "it really does control oil and make my makeup stay matte for at least until the end of office hour, which was considered to be good." However, that is not the case anymore when the product came to about about 20% of the bottle. *I'm still wondering why though.. maybe it's just that my skin has become oilier?*

Anyway, I got myself the improved version - Skin Lingerie Pore Cover around last weekend and I've used it for a few times by now.

Product description:
"Makeup base that instantaneously creates smooth skin by concealing those pesky open pores and red cheeks"
"Fills in the skin's uneveness to create a flat surface for better foundation application"
"Helps control shine and oiliness for long lasting finish"
"Improves skin appearance"

My verdict, I think this is slightly better than the older version. This comes with SPF20 PA+ and it gives a little coverage unlike the older version which was translucent. I guess this very much depends on each's preference though.

And, the most important question, "Does it really cover pores?"
My answer: "Slightly."
I would say it does cover pores, but it doesn't really make my makeup last that long for me. Especially on the nose area. :(
Oil control wise, I would rate it 3.5/5.

Have you tried this? ;-)

Hm, never tried this but I think the packaging is so cute! I'm currently using Dr. Brandt's Pores No More (a gift) and I'm not sure whether or not it actually helps... but it feels nice on my skin.

Thanks for sharing. I've heard of this brand many times but not sure when I can purchase it. Does it cause any breakouts for combo skin?
