I have been wearing the heck out of pink blushers this whole winter season! Pink is just a color that I am comfortable with and it always looks good on my pale complexion. Well, summer will be here soon (hopefully) so I am trying to update some of my makeup to include warmer toned products. So when I heard that my friend Vivienne from Jolie Pagaille became an Avon rep, I had to take a look around her store for some fun new products to try out!
She recommended the very popular mark. Juice Gems lip glosses and she also told me about the NEW mark. Touch & Glow Shimmer Creme Cubes in Coral Glow. Their original Touch & Glow cubes is Pink toned and it is insanely popular, but I thought I’d give the Coral version a try to coincide with my warm themed ideas. Mark. is an Avon brand and they make makeup, clothing, body & hair care, and jewelry…its really quite the spread!
Mark. Juice Gems High Shine Lip Gloss:
I chose the color Mango Tango, a sheer pearlescent peach. The gloss comes in a long squeeze tube with an angled plastic tip for application. It is fairly light pigmentation, but gives a super glossy shine to my lips and it smells just like peach! Yum! It’s only slightly sticky, nothing too bad, and it lasts about 2 hours before I have to reapply. So plan on keeping this in your bag for touch-ups.
Mark Touch & Glow Shimmer Creme Cubes:
This palette is gorgeous and so interesting to look at! It has 9 raised shimmer cubes in shades of coral, bronze and gold. They say that the raised cubes also allow for individual application of a specific color or highlight. However, I found that once I run my brush over all of the shades to blend them together, the darker shades kind of smudge up the lighter ones. The color is fairly sheer, but you can build it up by doing another layer or by only using the bottom 6 shades. It blends easily and I think it gives a great glow without being overly shimmery.
I really LOVE the gloss and I think the blush looks nice as well. However, I do think it may look better in the summer when I have a bit more color though, right now it looks a bit too orange against my pale skin. Go check out Vivienne’s shop and browse the awesome sale section for a bunch of great deals!
