What you see there are two of the pieces in the mark. Marrakesh Color Collection, the mark.Exotic Beauty Face Mosaics and the mark.Exotic Hues Eye Shadow Trio and they both blew me away!

Let’s take a closer look at the mark.Exotic Beauty Face Mosaics($16 CDN) first, shall we?

With shimmering shades of coral, gold and bronze this highlighter is super soft, super blendable and leaves such a gorgeous highlight on your skin. The quality of the mark.Exotic Beauty Face Mosaics is right up their with department store highlighters for sure. I love it.

The mark.Exotic Hues Eye Shadows Palette($12 CDN) is a trio of highly pigmented wet/dry baked eyeshadows that are inspired by vibrant spices found in the city’s souks:

Dry swatches are pretty decent for baked eyeshadows:

HOLY PIGMENTATION! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: mark. makes THE BEST Baked eyeshadow palettes. THE BEST.

The shadows in mark’s Exotic Hues Palette are so easy to use wet! They blend like a dream and last all day over a primer with no fading at all.


I’m wearing both products in the picture above. I took a side view, hoping the camera would pick up the pretty highlight from the Exotic Beauty Face Mosaics and I think you can see it! Oh, and the scarf I’m wearing? It’s also from mark. and it’s called The Bold and Bright Scarf($20CDN) and it’s HUGE. You can use it as a head scarf, or even as a pretty wrap during chilly summer nights. It’s such a bright pop of fuchsia and I think it’s a steal and a summer MUST have.

And while you’re at it, I think you should also add these to your order:

The mark. Big Mix Up Bracelets($20 CDN) is a 6-piece bracelet set with a mix of colours and textures and charms too! And since they’re stretchy they’ll fit wrists of all sizes, even if you’re a big-boned gal like myself hehe.

The mark. Marrakesh Color Collection and accessories are available to order right now from your local Avon Rep by calling 1-800-265-AVON, or by going online and ordering at

      Thanks Sunny! Yep-I thought of you when I saw this palette haha!

  • Avon should definitely advertise mark more! All the eyeshadows, blushes & glosses I have are just great so I have no doubt these are and their jewellery is always spot on fashion wise. 🙂

    • Tracy@Beauty Reflections

      I agree! Their products are so underrated. Everything I try is really lovely! And the accessories are AMAZING.

  • Wow, that dark green/olive shimmery gold shade is stunning! I tried a few disgustingly sheer eyeshadows from mark. and I was positively disappointed for the price… looks like they have upped their game!

    • Tracy@Beauty Reflections

      They have! These are AMAZING!

      Really? You guys don’t get it there? It’s part of Avon. I love most of the stuff they make! It does look like an LM baked eyeshadow palette you are right!

  • Those eyeshadows are amazing in the wet swatches! Those colours would be amazing for autumn wear.

    • Tracy@Beauty Reflections
