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.

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.

WORD ON THE LOOK:  I’m a sucker for pretty packaging and good advertisement images, and this one did not disappoint.  Every year they do a little extra effort on the package design.  This year the pretty sunset colors and image really captures the warmth of the scent.  It really smells like an Hawaiian sunset!  I love the palm leafs too and that stunning model in the stunning pink dress.  They had me at Aloha!

The Signature Scent: Maui Bliss

The Signature Scent: Maui Bliss

WORD OF ALICIA:  I can’t lie, I’m a little disspointed they didn’t do a true perfume because I LOVE THIS ONE SOOOO MUCH!  The body spray is nice, it lasts a good amount of time, it’s refreshing but I would of loved to layer it with a true perfume and I totally would of bought multiples.  The whole line is wonderful, typical of mark bath and body.  If you haven’t tried them the body cream is so rich and wonderful and not too greasy and the shower gel is moisturizing.  They work so well layered together you’re going to want the whole line, but my top pick is the Shimmering Moisture Gel.  Its lightweight moisturizing gel with really great fragrance pay off.  The shimmer is sun kissed and it works WONDERS as an after sun.  I’ll be stocking up on this for sure.

Trending Tuesday: Holiday Sparkle

If the world of alicia was the internet, #sparkle would totally be trending!  I just can’t get enough glimmer and glam this time of year.  All I want to do is wear sequins and glitter and stare at sparkling Christmas lights!  Here’s what’s sparkly and has my attention!

The mark. Sparkle collection has to be one of my all time favorite beauty collections from mark.!  The scent is a perfect winter fragrance a little bit cozy and a little bit party.  I really like the bottle too.  The fragrance is sold out online but order direct through me if interested.  The shimmer body lotion and soap however are available and great on their own!  Perfect stocking stuffers too!

Monthly Edit – What To Buy In February

If you’re anything like me you constantly feel like you want to just go out and buy a whole new wardrobe, but don’t have the budget, or honestly, the closet space to do so.  But I do love new things and being strategic and smart on my purchases, so instead of going all out each season add few key items each month that expand on what you have and keep you trendy and feeling good!  I’ve already shared my must-haves for January, here’s my word on February picks!

 

A new pink lip color and multi-tasking shimmer pallet:

mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat in Baby Me

mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat in Baby Me

Nothing is better than adding a little glow to pale winter skin.  Go with soft shades of pink and shimmer to perk up winter complexions.  mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat in Baby Me ($11) is an easy investment plus it wears like a balm so you prevent chapped lips while getting the perfect light pink shade!  Pair it with the mark. Touch and Glow Shimmer Cubes ($16) for a super easy look with a super versatile pallet.  Check out my look with it here.

mark. Touch and Glow

mark. Touch and Glow

 

A sparkly statement necklace:

Chambray and mark. Clear Choice Necklace

Chambray and mark. Clear Choice Necklace

Sick of wearing scarfs yet?  Try switching out a scarf with a sparkly necklace on those days when you’re not freezing!  Pair it with a chambray shirt for major impact that’s on trend and perfect for achieving the no- quite-spring-yet-look (as in with your leggings and boots).  mark. Clear Choice Necklace ($38) is the clear choice for this (see what I did there) and will work with your winter looks straight through to your summer looks!  {pic cred:  sealaura}

 

A spring scarf:

mark. Four Seasons Scarf

mark. Four Seasons Scarf (and wearing Baby Me on lips)

Not sick of wearing scarfs, then grab a new spring scarf in a lighter weight fabric and fun spring print.  I like the mark. Four Seasons Scarf ($18) because it’s super oversized!  I can wrap up in this baby and stay perfectly warm while wearing a print that just makes me spring-happy.  Plus this guy can transition into spring and summer not only as a scarf but also as a coverup for shoulder baring dresses (maybe during wedding season!?) or even at the beach!  Now that $18 seems even more appealing!

See how long this guy is!

See how long this guy is!

 

A new luxurious bath line:

mark. Naked Love

LOVE mark. Naked Love

Time to save winter skin and smell fresh for spring!  I can’t get over my excitement for the mark. Naked Love bath and body line.  This is probably my top pick (and favorite body line) in a long time.  Every time I lather up in the shower I’m immediately a little happier AND that gorgeous packaging makes me even more happy!  We’re over those deep scents from winter, but the notes of apricot nectar, white peaches, velvet freesia and skin musk are perfect for this time of year and beyond.  Whipped Up Body Butter is also super nourishing for winter skin.  It preps us for the upcoming skin-baring season.  This way, when those first few warm days hit we’ll be ready.

 

A chiffon layered top:

mark. Sheer Brilliance Sweatshirt

mark. Sheer Brilliance Sweatshirt

It’s hard to shop for clothes in February because we’re SO over buying those dark bulky winter items but it’s not quite warm enough for all those new spring arrivals.  So stick with buying tops that can work with many types of bottoms and in soft shades that work for winter and spring.  I’m loving the mark. Sheer Brilliance Sweatshirt ($28) for these exact reasons.  I can pair this with jeans for a casual look, or dress it up with a skirt or slim fitting dress pants.  The chiffon layer really let’s you dress it up, plus it takes away some of the bulk but still gives you that layered look!  I’m also looking forward to wearing this guy with shorts on those warmer days… like a cute pair of white denim shorts would look amazing with this!

BONUS:  An on-clearance favorite!

February is the best time to shop winter clearance finds!  Some of my favorites from fall and holiday releases are now marked down super low!  Like this top, necklace, clutch, polish set and MORE!  (all on clearance at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger)

 

Final Word of Alicia:

None of these items will break the bank (like under $150 for all of them, ALL of them!) and are new and now for February and beyond.  I also love how I can pair them with my January top picks and breath some 2015 life into my 2014 (and older, yikes!) wardrobe.  It’s like a breath of fresh air!   If you can only budget 1 thing this month my pick is the mark. Naked Love bath and body set ($34.99 for 6 pieces).  You can shop the items here and get 20% off with promo code AVONFB20

 

 

 

 

mark. Fall 2014 Preview and Reviews – Beauty

August is my favorite month.  Not only is it birthday month, but it’s usually when I get in a great summer trip, enjoy the hot summer days a little more and all the new fall arrivals.  Now that mark. releases their new arrivals in one large seasonal release I got a few of my favorites early.  I picked items I can wear now and transition into fall.  Beauty is the easiest way to switch up your look but still remain true to the current season so let’s start there!  mark.’s fall beauty is themed around the Wonderfleur fragrance making a cohesive collection with awesome packaging!

mark. Color Swing Mix It Up Eye Compact ($20)

mark. Color Swing Plum Shades

mark. Color Swing Neutral Shades

mark. Color Swing Neutral Shades

Word Of Alicia:  6 expertly matched eye shades that mix and match with each other to create a ton of looks all from one super portable pallet!   Almost everyone can wear plum shades and the tones on these DO NOT disappoint.  Sometimes they can run too red but these are perfect… same with the neutral shades, they’re not too brassy.  These are definitely shades you can wear now and later, plus how pretty are those floral designs!

mark. What A Line Max in Plum Gleam ($12)

Word Of Alicia:  They revamped What A Line Liquid Eyeliner to a new and improved waterproof formula and added 4 all new shades including this shade Plum Gleam.  The foam applicator tip allows for easy precision and application which I really like especially paired with the long “handle”.  With the new package design it doesn’t seem to dry out like the old version where you had to really work it each time to get enough liquid to the tip.  The wear is killer!  It lasts all day!  This swatch didn’t come off my hand until late in the evening after showering and washing my hands a million times during the day.  I also really love how this is a deep plum shade so I can replace my typical black liner with it to switch up my look and it goes PERFECTLY with the color swing pallet.

mark. Nail This Look Nail Lacquers and Bracelet-Ring Set ($28)

mark. Nail This Look Set

mark. Nail This Look Set

Word Of Alicia:  There is nothing groundbreaking about these polish shades but they are the perfect dark shades for fall.  Shady Lady is smoky plum shade (identical to a past mark. Nailed It Shade) and Plumsation is a deep deep purple.  I love the richness of the shades and how wearable they are.  I typically don’t wear darker shades like this in the summer but I had to test them out and with a shiny top coat they actually looked really nice with my summer whites and brights and the formula is spot on!  As for the bracelet-ring I wasn’t expecting much and its not the highest quality but it is SO CUTE ON!  I really was surprised how comfortable it is to wear and what a unique look.  This set is well worth it and may be my favorite pick from the bunch!

mark. Wonderfleur Eau De Toilette Spray and Body Cream ($28 – $14)

mark. Wonderfleur Fragrance

mark. Wonderfleur Fragrance

Word Of Alicia:  The full description reads:  Notes of apple blossoms, meadow dew, fresh freesia, just-picked daisies and a touch of pillowy musk.  The Alicia description reads:  Not a sweet floral but a really crisp clean floral, kind of like what you would find when you go up to the apple orchards in the morning when the dew is still wet.  Perfect for daytime wear and not to heavy for summer but has deepness to it that will transition into fall.  Layers really nice with the body cream.  I’m always expecting the worse with “cheap” fragrances but mark. never disappoints!  They really have an expert team that mixes and masters and it’s at a price point that’s way more affordable so you can wear it every day and refresh and not feel like your spraying away your dollars!

mark. Wonderfluer Collection and Packaging

mark. Wonderfleur Collection and Packaging

Final Word:  We all know I’m a sucker for packaging and the Wonderfleur collection is no exception!  It’s so pretty and fun and just inspires a wanderlust August!  I’m ready to pack these puppies up and head out for a weekend getaway or just go where the road trip takes us!  I’m ready for a something new but not quite ready to go full on fall so the beauty collection is a perfect update to my look for a little investment so I still have some $$ for a late summer outing!  All the products here will launch on August 8th (Friday) at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger along with the full fall collection from mark.!  Any of these peeked your interest?  How do you update your look for August?!

 

ps.  this is my 200th post!  yippie!  glad it involved some super pretty pictures and august 🙂

 

Your Summer Vacation Must-Haves

I absolutely LOVE that summer is JUST around the corner.  Which also means its time to start planning your summer vacation!  If you’ve been following my posts for the last 2 weeks you’ll notice I’ve been highlighting pieces from the mark. Instant Vacation Saint Barts collection (last seen here), so let’s pretend I’m planning a real vacation to Saint Barts.  There are a few must haves from the collection that are needed for any summer travel regardless of the destination.  Here are my top 3 must haves for your summer vacation:

1.  mark. Glam and Roll Jewelry Case ($24).

mark. Glam and Roll Jewelry Case ($24)

mark. Glam and Roll Jewelry Case ($24)

If you’re anything like me when packing its about fitting as much as possible and bringing as many multitasking items as possible.  The mark. Glam and Roll Jewelry Case solves both those issues.  Pack all your jewelry in its 3 zippered pockets, 1 slip pocket and along the necklace/earring bar, then roll it up!  The compacted case fits nicely in your bag and keeps you organized.  MULTITASKER:  The jewelry roll can then double up as a clutch once you get to your destination!

2.  mark. Get Packing Tote

mark. Get Packing Tote ($40)

mark. Get Packing Tote ($40)

The mark. Get Packing Tote is just what you need for your carry on bag or overnight bag.  Its roomy so you can pack a lot, and I mean a lot!, but it has sturdy and comfortable straps for lugging it around.  But on top of all that its a really good looking bag!  The neutral camel faux leather is really nice in quality and the pops of pink neon around the trim, studs and tie details give it a luxe look so you can also look like a chic jet-setter!  MULTITASKER:  Use this bag as your beach bag, shopper tote and/or just as your purse when you get to your destination.

3.  mark. Island Eyes and Island Beauty Pallets ($16 each)

Beautiful sunwashed eye shades and bronzy goodness!

mark. Island Eyes and Island Beauty Pallets ($16)

Who wants to haul a bunch of makeup when traveling?  That’s when a good pallet is really important, one that will give you a ton of looks from one case!  I’ve already reviewed and sung my praises on the mark. Island Eyes and Island Beauty pallets here, but on a trip these are really all you would need to bring, plus the slim design makes them really travel friendly!  MULTITASKER:  The mark. Island Beauty Face Pallet is a bronzer, blush and highlight all in one!  The mark. Island Eyes pallet contains the perfect shades to go neutral and beachy or bold and smokey!

BONUS MUST HAVE!  Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard

Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard

Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard (pic cred’s to Erica Gerlemann!)

I know I said my top 3, but I had to add on the Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard Line!  A lot of vacation destinations are going to have bugs and pests you don’t want biting you.  The Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard Line is EXTREMELY effective at keeping them at bay, plus its deet free!  No matter your formula preference there’s an option for you, lotion, spray or towelette.  MULTITASKER:  Get your other vacation must have, SUNSCREEN in your Bug Guard formula!  The Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard Line also has options with SPF30, which is just a life must have, really!  DOUBLE BONUS:  Now through memorial day the Skin So Soft Bug Guard is all on special pricing in our Memorial Day Shop (shop it here!) and with a $40 order get a FREE travel size Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus Picaridin Spray.  Plus shop the Memorial Day Shop for other must-haves to ready you for the weekend!

Word Of Alicia Review: mark. Instant Vacation Saint Barts Soleil Fragrance

mark. Instant Vacation Saint Barts Soleil Fragrance

mark. Instant Vacation Saint Barts Soleil Fragrance

Scent is such a personal thing.  For me a certain scent can bring back major memories, instantly make me happy or at the other end of the spectrum gross me out or give me a headache.  Needless to say ordering a new scent online is almost a pointless activity. Unless you know what to look for.  Historically I like clean scents that are light and fresh.  Which is why for the past 4 years the favorite perfumes in my collection are all from the mark. Instant Vacation collections.  Knowing that I’ve liked so many of their past scents when mark. released the Instant Vacation Saint Barts Soleil fragrance duo I knew I was going to take a chance and order it without smelling it.  It did not disappoint.

mark. Saint Barts Soleil Eau De Toilette Spray $24

mark. Saint Barts Soleil Eau De Toilette Spray $24

Saint Barts Soleil Eau De Toilette Spray is described as a luxe blend of fresh, breezy Caribbean waters; rich, exotic coconut milk and bold beautiful frangipani flower takes your senses on a journey to a glam island resort.  Paired with the eau de toilette spray is the Saint Barts Soleil Shimmering Body Lotion.  Inspired by the shimmering waters and silky sands of Saint Barts, this hydrating luminizer leaves your skin with a radiant glow and a wisp of the Saint Barts Soleil fragrance.  Layer under the eau de toilette spray for a luxurious, total-scent experience.

Layer mark. Saint Barts Shimmering Lotion under the Eau De Toilette Spray for Extra Staying Power

Layer mark. Saint Barts Shimmering Lotion under the Eau De Toilette Spray for Extra Staying Power

Personally this is right up my ally.  If you are familiar with past mark. Instant Vacation releases, its like a  combo of the Marrakesh scent mixed with the original Instant Vacation scent.  I adore anything coconut and this gives just the right amount of it to not smell like you just applied Hawaiian Tropic (which by the way I also really enjoy).  Its sophisticated enough for all ages and just like I like fresh, clean and light, like a summer fragrance should be.  Because it is a Eau De Toilette I do re-apply hours later if its going to be a long 15 hour type of day.  The shimmering lotion is the same formula as the past mark. Hamptons lotion but obviously with this new scent.  Its not as moisturizing as my typical Whipped Up Body Butter I use daily, but as a nice, light lotion it works.  The shimmer isn’t glittery but a nice, well, shimmer.  I really like it on my legs.  And just like any other fragrance duos layering helps the staying power.  At $24 for the Eau De Toilette Spray and $14 for the Shimmering Lotion this is a super affordable duo.  You can get them at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger

Word Of Alicia Review:  My new go-to must have scent.  At a super affordable price point I won’t mind wearing it everyday and everywhere.  The shimmer lotion is just a summer must have in general but also having this killer scent is win win.  Not to strong for work/day but intense enough to wear out at night.  Definitely a scent that instantly takes me to a warm summery happy place.  Shop the mark.

Just to highlight a few of my favorites!  But seriously this fall and pre-holiday has had some KILLER releases and the fact you can grab them at 25% off is making me so happy and really I just want you to be happy too!  Take advantage of this deal while you can, if you can, because it doesn’t happen too often!  Now, what killer pair of mark. shoes or black and gold trend items do I need to pick up for myself!?!
