When you think mod I’m sure Twiggy comes to mind, but there’s more than spiked lashes!  mark. nailed the mod theme with the colors in this eye pallet.  The mix of matte and shimmer, with buildable formulas perfectly capsulated the movement of the 60’s.

Eau What Fun! Mark. Mod Limited Edition Holiday Collection

London calling! Channel an era of short skirts, extra-long lashes and graphic black-and-white prints with the new mark.

NOTES
• Top Note: swinging medley of rose
• Middle Note: capucine florals
• Bottom Note: spicy nutmeg allure

Word Of Alicia:  I would call this scent clean and masculine, and I absolutely adore it!  It is something completely different than anything else in my fragrance wardrobe.  The first time I sampled it I was like eh… then I used it and really got to explore the notes and how they layer.  OBSESSED.  Plus it lasts all day,  and then some!  Much longer than most mark. fragrances.  This one smells way more expensive than $30 would suggest.  It also has a really good retro feel to fit the mod theme.

Word on mark. Mod Body Lotion:  This creamy, extra-rich companion lotion leaves skin feeling soft, silky and eau so MOD.  mark. MOD is a swinging medley of rose and capucine florals spiked with a spicy nutmeg allure. 6.7 fl. oz.

• Has a creamy texture
• Absorbs quickly
• Leaves skin feeling soft and silky
• Lightweight

Word Of Alicia:  Free with the purchase of the fragrance… sold!  Layering this with the fragrance really lasted into the next day, used alone still gave me a lot of scent.  Its a good weight too, not too heavy not to light. I personally liked that it lasted, and was free, so win win!

Word on mark. Mod Pop Eyeshadow Pallet:  Pop goes the shadow. An exclusive limited edition eyeshadow palette with 12 all new shades! Get muted brights when applied dry and even bolder hues when swept on wet.

Word Of Alicia:  Let me just say that this is my new go-to pallet!  Besides having super cute packaging this pallet is the perfect size, portable and thin.  The pans are a really good size too, so a good amount of product with the 12 different shade options.  These shades are a really unique offering for holiday too… this is one you can use on the day to day and still get party looks for the season.  (check back for tomorrow’s look using it!).  I loved this pallet so much I made a swatch video of it so you can really see how wearable the shades are.  Very buildable as you can see during the swatches but also really long lasting.  If you liked the mark. On The Dot Pastels this will be a good replacement. After doing some pinning on all things mod I really saw how all these shades are quite retro and very much of the mod movement, but wear very modern.   100% satisfied.

If November was a lip shade name, Cozy would be it!  (Or Thankful)  But Cozy is my lip of the week, so cozy it is!  These liquid lipsticks from mark. are a fabulous formula (see review here) so I decided to pick up another shade, Cozy.  This light pink shade is a really easy neutral shade.  I see this looking killer with a warm smokey eye for Thanksgiving!

I’ve been wearing this mark. Pout Vinyl Lip Paint in Cozy all week… minus Halloween where my lip of the day was Vamp for obvious reasons.  I really enjoy these vinyl shades, I love how saturated they are.  Extremely long wearing and comfortable.  Cozy, the light pink shade, is no exception.

Is Blue Eyeliner Tacky!?

Is Blue Eyeliner Tacky!?

Is Blue Eyeliner Tacky!?

Blue eyeliner gets a bad wrap. I guarantee you, you can wear blue eyeliner and not look tacky.  It all comes down to how you’re wearing it.  The simplest and easiest way to wear blue eyeliner is with a simple and clean eye look, and pick a blue that’s deep enough that it still defines your eyes.  That’s what an eyeliner in general is supposed to do, a blue can not only define but really pop on any color of eye/skintone.  I found the perfect blue eyeliner in the Avon True Color SuperExtend Precise Liquid Pen in Sapphire Blue.  It defines and pops and wears beautifully.  I can get a precise line, wing it out if I want to and now get a great deep blue color.  You can read my full review here.

Pair blue eyeliner with a clean eye and rosy pinks

Pair blue eyeliner with a clean eye and rosy pinks

Pairing blues with pinks are complimentary so try a nice pink flush on the cheeks and a full pink lip to compliment your blue eyeliner.  Can you tell me that this makeup look is tacky?  I think not.  You can put this best face forward as well.  All products used are available at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger plus you can add the Fresh and Clean A Box on to your order for only $10.  So you can get clean, radiant skin, and a fresh blue eyeliner makeup look perfect for fall and beyond… definitely not tacky.

Word Of Alicia:  

This Avon True Color SuperExtend Precise Liquid Liner in black has been my #1 favorite liquid liner since they discontinued my long time mark. favorite.  What I like about this formula is its nice and opaque, goes on really smooth and lasts all day.  I can get expert precision with the shape and has a great grip.  More importantly, I can get that wing every time… and if its not awesome I can dab the felt tip to fill in, or thicker.  This applies to all 3 shades.

New Shades Like Hunter Green

New Shades Like Hunter Green!

My review on the colors themselves, black is an obvious win.  Sapphire Blue is really great not too dark not to bright, super wearable for day or night and still gives that definition you want from an eyeliner look.  Hunter Green isn’t as vibrant as I was hoping for.  It still looks good on, but I go into knowing its more of a softer look.  I also love that they put the color on the ends so you can easily determine which pen is what color!

Colored Ends For Easy Indexing

Colored Ends For Easy Indexing

Most excellent eyeliner but most horrible cap design.  What I don’t like about these eyeliners are how easy it is for the caps to come off.  I can’t tell you how many times in my makeup bag the cap comes off and it gets all over my hand when I reach in, plus when I loose the cap it dries out quicker.  That is why I keep these in a cup with my brushes to avoid cap loss.  My only other complaint is the amount of product.  Maybe its because I wear this everyday but I go through these so quick.  I usually buy two at a time because I know I’ll use one up before I order again.  Which isn’t to big of a deal because they are usually on sale for $4.99 or buy one get one deal, and even with the original price of $8 it is still a great price for a great product.  Overall, even with the poor cap design, these are still my favorite eyeliners.  Black on heavy repeat and now sapphire blue as well, hunter green as a random choice when I want something different.
