Spring is finally here! At least it is on the calender and this season is bringing even more new beauty products and makeup by bountiful. One of my favorite brands, mark. by Avon is launching a collection inspired by Marrakesh.
Lots of spicy colors and bold pieces are in this collection! Here are a few pieces I was sent, complete with swatches and first impressions......

Exotic Hues Eye Shadow Trio
Gloss Gorgeous Stay On Lip Stain in Spicy
Exotic Beauty Face Powder Mosaics
Exotic Beauty Face Powder Mosaics- This face powder is very finely milled with golden and coral tones. It's perfect as a highlighter. I swirled it around with a bronzer brush to get a perfect combination of colors.
Exotic Hues Eye Shadow Trio- When I first saw this trio, I thought of fall, the gold, bronze-y orange and deep forest green. However it can be worked into a spring/summer look to pair with the season's tribal looks.
Gloss Gorgeous Stay On Lip Stain in Spicy- This gloss is a beautiful, sheer caramel brown. It has mark's signature calming minty scent and its not sticky. I didn't find it really staining either, just a great everyday gloss to compliment the face powder and trio.
The first three colors are the Exotic Hues Trio and last swatch in the Exotic Beauty Face Powder Mosaics.
This is a swatch of the Gloss Gorgeous in Spicy.

The Collection will be available by consultant and online April 2013.
Disclosure: These products were sent to me for consideration. I was not paid for this post.
