I don’t know about you, but I need a little break from Radiant Orchid today. So, let’s look at some pretty Mark makeup instead, shall we?
Mark Blooming Pretty Highlighting Face Powder($18 CDA) and Mark. Color Swing Mix It Up Eye Compact($26 CDA) are some of the prettiest makeups from Mark I’ve seen in a long time!
Have you ever seen anything like the Mark Blooming Pretty Highlighting Face Powder before? It’s so PRETTY. You can use the gold part as a highlighter, and then just the two pink shades in the flower as a blush, or swirl them together to get the most gorgeous, glowy cheek shade EVER.
The texture feels soft, but you need a natural bristle brush to pick up the colour. A synthetic brush doesn’t cut it with this powder, although it will give a really soft sweep of colour. A natural bristle brush is faster at laying down colur and better in my opinion. I LOVE the coral glow this gives my cheeks! It blends beautifully and lasts all day for me!
The Mark Color Swing Mix It Up Eye Compact confused me at first. Compacts that have hidden compartments and swing this way and that way are HARD for me LOL. After a few minutes of feeling like I had NO OPPOSABLE THUMBS(thanks Mark. for that-it was a very humbling experience), I finally figured out HOW this compact works.
This is what the Mark Color Swing Mix It Up Eye Compact looks like at first.
Swing the lovely blue eyeshadows to the side:
Flip, and you get 3 lovely neutral shades to use as well!
It’s just genius I say! I mean, combining browns with blues is the perfect combination ya’ know? And I could have figured out how the compact worked a HECK of a lot faster if I looked at the instruction insert. D’OH.
NICE, huh? Yeah I KNOW! Mark makes some pretty nice makeup, hey? And on the eye I’ve combined pretty much all the shades for you, except for that yellow gold. I can’t really wear yellow golds like that one, but it is pretty that’s for sure!
The shadows are very smooth and velvety in texture and easy to blend and apply. LOVE. You know I have a soft spot for baby blue eyeshadows, and this palette fills it! And the soft brown shades on the flip side make that baby blue oh so wearable too!
Loving these two new Mark Makeup Spring Makeup products, especially that blush! The Mark Blooming Pretty Highlighting Face Powder and Mark Color Swing Mix It Up Eye Compact are available to order right now from your local AVON Rep by calling 1-800-265-AVON, or by ordering online at www.avon.ca !
WEDNESDAY WAHOO!! I hate the week after springing the clocks ahead. It takes me until today to feel a bit more human! One hour of sleep lost on me equals eight hours I think. BUT, I’m going to my amazing hair stylist Eva today to get some colour put back in my hair. I don’t think I’m going to get it cut though-I’ve decided I want to grow it a just a bit longer. I like ponytails, especially when exercising! Keeps the hair outta’ my face!
I think the Mark. New Blooming Pretty Highlighter Face Powder wins for prettiest face/blush powder this year so far, don’t you? If not, what’s your pick?
*products sent by the lovely PR, but as always, thoughts are mine because SERIOUSLY. My crazy is MINE and why would I let someone else ruin it? 😈
