Hello ABC! Following on from my previous review for Rose Gold from the Avon True Nailwear Pro+ range and with the nail enamels appearing in C10 at a special price of £3, I've used this opportunity to share with you the very pretty and delicate Inspired Iris . Inspired Iris is one of 3 new shades, a soft lilac/pink with shimmer. I applied 3 coats to intensify the colour and sealed with top coat. At £3 a bottle you really can't go wrong, great quality and super formulation. 10ml bottle, good brush and nice slim cap. I've received confirmation directly from Avon UK that all Avon's nail polishes are 5-Free (free of: Formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor).
Hello ABC! With the Avon True Colour Nailwear Pro+ Nail Enamels making an appearance in C10 at only £3 a pop, I've used this opportunity to share with you the very elegant and ladylike shade Rose Gold , from the collection, a rosy peach with shimmer. I applied 3 coats to intensify the colour and sealed with top coat. It's such a pretty peach (Pretty Peach - now that's a blast from the past!) The bottle & brush are the same as the Mark Gel Shine range of nail enamels, bottle size 10ml. When I first saw this shade it reminded me of Dazzle Pink from the Mark Gel Shine range, but if you have a look at the two together, they are quite different, but similar with their shimmer frosting. Rose Gold has a rosy hue, where Dazzle Pink is more peach. I've got a healthy collection of the Mark Gel Shine range, I think the same is going to happen with the Avon True Colour Nailwear Pro+ range! Ooopsy! At £3 a bottle you really can't go wrong, great quality and super formulation. I've received confirmation directly from Avon UK that all Avon's nail polishes are 5-Free (free of : Formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor).
So I decided to order some of the new mark products, as my makeup is in need of a serious spring clean, plus the lovely warmer weather really makes me want to glam up a bit instead of hiding behind scarves.
Warmer weather requires glowing, dewy skin and these 2 products I think are perfect.
First up is the new mark Glow On Face Illuminator. You can wear this alone to help brighten, blur imperfections and even skin tone, or it can be worn under makeup as a pore-minimising, radiance boosting base. You can also use it over makeup as a targeted highlighter. It's all up to you. I chose to wear it under my makeup. This is a light-gold formula with multifaceted light reflectors, to be honest I would feel comfortable wearing this without makeup. It would definitely work really well as a highlighter as it adds a lovely glow without looking fake.
Over this I used mark Glow On Natural Radiance Foundation in Shell. This is a medium coverage foundation for all skin types and comes in 12 shades, so you are sure to find the right shade to match your skin. I was going to say I'm not sold on the packaging, but thinking about it, I have decided that the new packaging is different. It's bold , it's fresh. Even without the new packaging, as a product itself, it can't be faulted. This is a lovely soft as silk formula, perfect for spring and summer to give you a healthy looking Glow. I was happy with the coverage, my skin looked natural and healthy.
These great products and more are available in Brochure 9. Let me know if you have tried these or any other mark products, I would love to hear from you.
