REVIEW: mark. Blooming Pretty Highlighting Powder

I am so ready for warm weather and this highlighting powder from mark. ($16.00) makes me happy with anticipation.  I honestly thought this would be a powder that would just look pretty in the compact but turns out it looks just as pretty on your face.  

I smile a lot and tend to blush very easily (especially when I'm around that certain special someone) so, I don't own many blushes.  However, when my AVON demo catalog came in the mail, I just knew I had to get this! 

This is probably one of the prettiest blushes I have ever come across.  It's actually a highlighting powder but the flower portion has 2 shades of pink which is just so pretty.  It's almost too pretty to use. :) The yellow is like a buttercup color which is perfect for spring! 

I used the Precision Face Brush by BareMinerals which I absolutely love! $28.00

Here is a close up of the colors. 

I really like the fact that there is no shimmer or sparkle with this powder as it doesn't accentuate pores or fine lines. I wanted to use the yellow on my lids as well to just see more of the color.  There is a fair amount of pigment to the shade but not so much as to give you a harsh look from the 80's.  When all three colors are blended you get a subtle glow to your face.  I had this look for about two hours before I took the photos and then headed to dinner with some girlfriends.  

I used a champagne colored cream eye shadow on my lids that went quite well with the yellow. 

I think it looks even better with the flash.  

Now available from your AVON Representative.

Turkish Delights of the Day
  • The weather here in Virginia has been beautiful (around 70 degrees) and then it started sleeting last night as the temperature dropped below freezing within hours.
  • I have truly been enjoying my break from graduate school until I return on May 15th.  Need to really get crackin' on projects and my blog.  
  • I received official notice about making President's Club with AVON and feel so blessed and overcome with joy!  This company is truly amazing.
