Festival Ready with Mark. Jewelry

Festival season is upon us and this was a chance for me to flaunt my new mark jewelry collection! The collection includes burnished silvertone with semi precious stones coin necklace, a hand chain, and interchangeable earrings that can be worn as I'm modeling them or longer with the extra piece that's shown in the stock photo. Already received loads of compliments so far! 


All available on my website

Avon's Perfectly Matte Lipsticks

The matte lip trend is all the rage right now, which is perfect timing because Avon recently launched their new collection of matte lipsticks in 12 gorgeous shades! Not only are these colors bomb dot com, they're creamy without being cakey! I feel that some matte lipsticks tend to be drying. However, Avon's new collection seals in moisture for a lightweight, velvety feel! Check out the swatches I did for you guys below.

Perfectly Nude | Marvelous Mocha | Electric Pink | Ideal Lilac

Adoring Love | Pure Pink | Ravishing Rose | Coral Fever

Hot Plum | Red Supreme | Wild Cherry | Superb Wine

At first, texture is very velvety, creamy and glides easily on the lips. Afterwards, the formula dries to a complete matte without being drying at all. It felt VERY comfortable to wear. Although the formula isn't long wearing, it doesn't transfer very easily and wears off nicely throughout the day. I do recommend that it is important to exfoliate due to wearing a dryer formula than a standard lipstick. This will avoid chalkiness and noticeably dry skin on your lips! Also, using a lip liner with your lipstick will give you a different look! Different, but nice! Colors are very pigmented and I've even noticed they smell pretty nice too! I would compare these lipsticks to MAC's matte lipsticks except Avon's are less drying.

My Personal Faves: Marvelous Mocha, Pure Pink, Red Supreme, and Wild Cherry!

Avon's new collection of Perfectly Matte Lipsticks are now available on my website and are on sale for $5.99 which you can order here.
