MAKEUP LOOK | mark. Havana Sol Collection "You CAN Pull Off Blue!"

I haven't posted nearly as many summer looks this season and I have to kick myself a lot of the time because there are some collections that I am definitely discovering far too late like the mark. Havana Sol Collection! Not only do the bath and body products smell like some of the best things I've smelled since fresh McDonald's fries, but the makeup collection is so perfect for getting you in the summer party mood! I, on the other hand, had to clean and get groceries while I was experimenting with the collection so the only people that got to enjoy this look were the meat and deli folks at Loblaws!

The Havana Sol collection is all about celebrating the energy of Havana hence the bright shades and tropical packaging. mark. collections are always a ton of fun and even though they are targeted towards the tween/young millennial age group, I don't think I will ever feel too old to enjoy the colours and trends mark. brings to the Avon family.

The Havana Sol Body Wash* and Body Butter* are a blend of papaya (OMG, I love it), Cuban orchid and the warmth of velvet woods. It has the zing from the papaya, but the creaminess of something more floral. This has got to be one of my most favourite scents from mark! It is the PERFECT amount of tropical goodness! The body wash is pretty standard in terms of performance and the body butter is shea butter-based and hydrating without having the moisture sit on my skin for very long. It just goes right in! In addition, there is also a Body Scrub and Body Mist to round out the rest of this bath and body collection.

The Cheek Magnet Hook Up Blush-Bronzer in Sun and Sand* is inspired by a Havana sunset and is a buildable pinky coral cheek colour with a shimmery bronzer. Swirl them all together for a summer glow or use your brush on either side to use them as separates.

This Eye Contact Hook Up Eyeshadow Palette* is my FAVOURITE of the collection because of all of the blue! There are 9 shades - 4 shimmers and 5 mattes all of which performed fairly well in terms of blendability and pigmentation. They were also buttery and soft, but responded best to the patting motion of fingers instead of brushes.


The shadows really don't look impressive here, but really they were quite nice!

I was expecting these matte blues to be a whole other kind of headache with chalkiness, but they were my favourite shadows of the entire palette!
