Makeup Monday: mark. Maui Bliss Color Collection

Switching pace from mani Monday to makeup Monday to talk about the all new, limited edition mark. Maui Bliss color collection. With each mark. Instant Vacation capsule collection they always include beauty items that represent the destination perfectly.  This year, included in the collection, is an eye shadow pallet, a bronzer, nail polish and a brush set.  All perfectly themed out and in travel friendly sizes!  Let’s take a closer look:

Word Of Alicia:  They did a similar pallet in the fall of 2013 and it’s one of my all time favorite mark. beauty products, so when I saw they did a summer version in paradise inspired shades I was super excited!  The beige shades are very similar to that fall pallet and great base shades that work well for a clean summer eye when wearing alone.  The teal is updated for summer that works really well in the crease and as a liner.  Purple is always my punch color in the summer and the coral shade is perfect as a transition shade or in the center of the lid.  I really like how this compact is really compact and priced really nice at $10.  You’ll throw this in your bag for every summer vaca and it will be all you need!

No salon, no uv light curing – just high-impact, gel-like shine in two limited-edition shades; Cloud 9, a heavenly white and Hula, a hip-swaying lavender.

Word Of Alicia:  Think of that vintage Hawaiian print poster, these 2 colors are the perfect representation of that.  I love wearing whites in the summer on my toes and the purple is muted enough to be your go to.  I’m excited to do some fun nail art with these but the formula is so great that just a single swipe is self leveling, pigmented and super glossy!

Word Of Alicia Review: mark. Maui Bliss Sunset Glow Face Bronzer

Word Of Alicia:  Definitely a personal favorite for summer, bronzer!  So much it got it’s own review.  Check it out here.  But if you like Benefit Hula Bronzer you’ll love this for half the cost.  After that shimmer on the top is used it’s a matte bronzer identical to hula.

All your tool essentials compacted into 1 set! – and there’s a peek at Hula on my thumb 🙂

Word Of Alicia:  For someone who 8 times out of 10 is doing her makeup on the way to wherever a really good travel brush set is a lifesaver.  This one has the perfect pieces for my life.  Something for my bronzer/blush and highlighter and the right eye brushes to get that crease, blending and the perfect cat eye.  Plus its super pretty in the gold case.  This set makes everything above worth it.

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.
