WORD OF ALICIA:

I definitely would recommend this as your new bronzer!  First off it’s a super stunning package and design.  I love the shell design and its a decent amount of product for only $16.  That super pretty sparkle however is just on the surface, which is kind of a bummer (and biggest con) but honestly I like matte bronzers better anyhow.  This isn’t a true true matte it has the tiniest amount of shimmer.  There is a lot of shimmer here on my face because it was that first swipe of that top layer.  If you never quite liked Glowdacious because it’s too shimmery then you’ll like this one.  I like that this one isn’t orange at all (even though my pic kinda leans orange but that’s my camera settings) and it isn’t too muddy.  I’ve used it to effectively contour, worn just on the tops of my cheeks, and on any areas I want to look sun kissed.  It met all my expectations.  Wear time is nice as well.  If you want to instantly look like you’ve taken an Maui vacation this is the bronzer to do 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!

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.

If the world of Alicia was the internet then #maui would totally be trending.  I’m all about Maui for two major reasons right now;  1.  mark. Instant Vacation Maui Bliss capsule collection release and 2.  Maui was the best vacation to date I’ve ever taken and I seriously could use that right now.  However, there’s no Maui in my immediate future so I guess I’ll just have to instantly be transported there with this new mark. collection worked into my everyday!  Every year mark. releases a capsule collection based of a vacation destination, this year it’s Maui!  So let’s take a peek at some must haves from the collection and must haves to hit up in Maui!

About the mark. Instant Vacation Maui:  It’s the island that has you at hello! The Pacific surrounds you and fun is all around. When your’e not in a bikini (or snorkeling gear!), cue up cute shorts and a tee. Heading out to view the vibrant yellow hibiscus and towering bird of paradise Maui is known for? Avoid tan lines by going off-the-shoulder. And if there’s a chance your day will stretch into night, dress for both in a maxi with an irresistible island vibe!

Aloha Maui!

Aloha Maui!

Maui Must Have:  Early evening beachfront drinks:  “followed by dinner and a little live music on bustling Front Street in Lahaina – this maxi’s just what you need to make waves at both places.”  Front street in Lahaina is definitely where the night life is, happy hour and the sun sets, what’s better than that!  A tropical print maxi is the PERFECT outfit for that.  Also would be my pick on what to wear for a luau in Lahaina.

Maui Must Have:  Early morning walk along Ka’Anapali beach:  “cute and comfy shorts and a tropical-flavored tee are the right balance of easy and breezy.  The sandals are adorable – even if they don’t stay on your feet”  I totally agree that easy to wear separates that are light and breeze are the best thing to pack for your typical beach days… and if you’re not in Maui, sounds about right for lazy summer days.

Maui Must Have:  The epic drive from Kahului to Hana:  “on the Hana Highway is an absolute Maui must.  Wear a dress that’s both comfy in the car and cute enough to steal some attention from the jaw-dropping scenery when you jump out to ooh and awe.”  The scenic drive to Hana was definitely a favorite thing to do in Maui and this look totally would fit the bill.  You could even wear your suit underneath because every day on Maui I found myself in the ocean some how.  It’s crazy how as you climb up in elevation how the weather changes so a dress like this is both cool, comfortable and functional!

Maui Bliss Color Collection:  Humid days and beach front lifestyle doesn’t require much in the beauty department.  A little brozner, an eye pallet inspired by the lush tropical paradise, a long lasting gel finish polish and a compact brush set is all you’ll need.  These all are sized perfectly for travel for that trip across the Pacific… or in your bag as you “jet set” to work through weekend this summer.  I would add to my travel bag Avon Anew Skinvincible moisturizer with broad spectrum SPF 50, a waterproof concealer Avon Extra Lasting Concealer, and a waterproof mascara Avon Big and Daring Waterproof mascara and Avon Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in Creamy Melon with SPF 15.  A seaspray for your hair with mark. That’s Beachy and a good sun hat  with the Ray Of Sunshine Beach Hat and you’re all set for Maui.

Maui Must Have:  Wai’anapanapa State Park.  The black sand beach on Maui is just way too cool not to go see.  I loved the contrast of the bright blue water and black sand, plus there’s fun little spots and cool cliffs to get a great view.  We hiked a long the coast a bit and it was just breathtaking!
