Word of Alicia:  If you loved the mark. liquid shadows of yesteryear (mark. all time eye, see here) then you’ll love these!  Like me, I loved those mark ones especially in the summer for an eye that’s not overdone.  The formula is better, no creasing and stays all day, double the size and they’re glittery!  These aren’t quite on the same level as the Stila ones but those are $22 a pop and these are $5.99, so you do the math.  I picked up 4 shades, Rose Gold, Fool’s Gold, Jade and Peach Sapphire, all 4 I’m loving.  So much that I ordered two more shades!

How I’m Wearing the Glimmershadows:  After playing around with these new releases, I found my favorite way to apply them.  Because these are such a strong formula, I don’t need an eye primer, I start with using the doe foot applicator straight on the lid, all over, staying below the crease and running under my lower lash line as well.  I let those set, and curl my lashes with an eyelash curler.  Then, using a fluffy eyeshadow brush, I run a taupe shade in my crease and outer v (as you would a transition shade).  I then use a white eyeshadow on my inner corner and brow bone to brighten the eye.  Finish it of with my go-to cat eye liner, and a coat of black mascara.  I’ve literally done this with each of the 4 shades and it slay’s all day!  They look put together, and make my eyes pop!

Word on the Spring Essentials A Box:  Neutrals are a huge trend in beauty for spring so a neutral lip, and a fun eyeliner over a neutral eye shade are just the wear-everyday-essentials you need to spring into the new season.  I was expecting a dark brown lip color but Brown Sugar is really wearable.  The hit of this A Box is the travel size perfume, its the PERFECT size to take along in your bag and for travel and updating to a spring scent is just what the dr ordered!  It instantly transports me to a spring frame of mind and I just love the brightness to the scent.

Let me just put the word out on this Savana Beauty value set.  It’s $20 for a $48 value, so there’s that but it actually comes with some pretty stunning FULL SIZE makeup that’s everything you need for your spring beauty update.  The matte eyeshadow quad looks intimidating but you can day or night this.  I wore shade 1 all over my lids with shade 2 in my crease, shade 3 on the center of my lid and shade 4 on the outer v, and I can’t tell you how many compliments I got.  It was actually rather shocking since its not really that far off from what I normally do but it was enough color to bring some new attention.  And Glazewear… why have I not given this a shot before!?  This is probably one of the better lip glosses I’ve ever used, comfortable, hydrating and great color!  I’m back on the gloss train like its 1999!

These shades are not only perfect to amp up your spring look a million different ways but they’d be great for St. Patrick’s Day too!  The nail polish in clover is more muted in person, a great dupe for Chanel Jade!  I just LOVED it and I had no desire to buy it before, now its definitely one of my favorite shades.  Additionally the makeup bag is too cute with the Savana Blooms signature print from the collection exclusive to Avon, but it is also JUST the right size and shape for your bag.  Not too big and long enough for your brushes.  I just can not express how impressed I am with this $20 set!  Get it while you still can as it is part of the limited edition collection (see here).

And if you just want to dip a toe in the Southern Belle beauty pool try this adorable set too, Coral Fever Lipstick Set.  Avon True Color Perfectly Matte Lipstick in Coral Fever is one of my favorite shades (see swatches and on here).  For $10 you get the full size lipstick and this cute little pouch perfect for stashing your lippies!  It would look really good with the above set if you were feeling a bold lip instead of gloss.  Both of these would make excellent Easter basket gifts.

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.

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.

Then use the #3 shade from the Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Naked Truth and blend into the crease. To create a gold metallic look, add the #4 shadow shade from the quad and pack the color on the lids. You can also take the same #4 gold eyeshadow shade and apply under the eyes.
