mark Ibiza Sol Marbleized Lip Glosses Review Swatches

Are you beauty budget Summer surfing already? Trying to locate the most bang for your beauty buck without overspending because you wanna splurge on a nice Summer vacation to the Jersey Shore with Snooki.


Imagine if that was true?

God help us all.

I’m spending part of my Spring and hopefully part of my Summer with RJ Berger, if I have to watch MTV for entertainment value, I choose the geek not the orange one.

Tuck into mark Ibiza Sol Marbleized Lip Glosses for nine bucks so you have some extra change to spend on a slice and a soda for Snooki.


Three shades of a new gloss from mark introduced with their Summer 2011 Collection, Ibiza Sol.

Why yes, you’re right in experiencing a little nostalgia here as these do indeed remind me of the MAC Marblelized Lipglasses released with the Colour Craft Collection.

But I think these are way prettier and of course cheaper!

Each gloss is made up of a cream and a shimmer shade in a swirled marble design. I can sit here and stare at them for literally hours as the design is pretty fascinating and one wonders just how they get that composition to fit so perfectly into the tube. Gorgeous!

The formula applies pretty sheer but can be built up decently. Rather than leaving behind pigment it enhances my natural lip color and really pops when lipstain is applied prior to the actual gloss. They don’t have crazy shine but just the right amount of gleam to keep a girl happy. The applicator doesn’t pick product up so well so a little pumping action is required to get things flowing. It applies a bit drier but as you build you’ll see a more hydrating finish.

The gloss is available in three shades which include:

  • Bonita Pink (Creamy Pink and Shimmering Golden Rosy Red)
  • Hola! Bronze (Dusky Rose Cream and Dirty Gold Bronze Shimmer)
  • Chica Coral (Creamy Peach and Golden Shimmering Pink)

Although the formula contains a cream there isn’t anything opaque about the finish thanks to the shimmer in the mix.

(Left to Right: Bonita Pink, Hola Bronze, Chica Coral)

Wear time varies and at the most you’re looking at two hours of wear before they fade off into the great beyond.

The drier texture isn’t particularly pleasant but if you pump the wand a few times and get some extra coats on you’ll be golden!

  • Beauty budget shoppers!
  • Those who loved MAC’s Marblelized Lipglasses (long gone but not forgotten? relive them with mark’s version!).
  • Gloss addicts (these are a nice addition to any stash because of the interesting design and pretty shades).

  • Those interested in a high shine gloss.
  • Those wanting a super pigmented gloss (these run a bit sheer).

They aren’t the best gloss I’ve tried in my beauty day but they are a nice one particularly if you’re looking for a budget Summer lipgloss. The shades are actually really nice and come alive even more so with a hint of stain. The price tag isn’t too bad either at $9. Mark fans will enjoy these without a doubt.

Quite a likey!

I suggest checking out Hola! Bronze, it’s rather pretty and unique!

mark Ibiza Sol Marbleized Lip Glosses will be available from or through a mark rep from May 2011 through mid-August 2011.

    • 4/1/11 9:40 the Muse:

      try the bronze mara, really quite a nice shade, I’m wearing today!


  • 4/1/11 7:48 Daisy:

    Thank you for the review! Do these smell like mint? Usually all of their glosses have that flavor an that’s why I don’t end up purchasing them because of that reason.


    • 4/1/11 9:21 the Muse:

      subtle vanilla Daisy :)


  • 4/1/11 8:32 Mitu Rosu:

    You said that the shades are actually really nice,come alive even more so with a hint of stain and the price it’s only 9$.I guess i would buy it.
    Thanks for the post.


    • 4/1/11 9:18 the Muse:

      my pleasure mitu hope you enjoyed the post :)


  • 4/1/11 13:58 Daisy:

    Thanks, Muse! Yay for vanilla :-)


    • 4/1/11 14:00 the Muse:

      ;-D Glad it’s not mint for ya!


  • 4/1/11 19:47 Tigress:

    Yay, RJ! :) I don’t ever wear lipglosses with shimmer, not even sure why.


    • 4/4/11 13:10 the Muse:

      w00t rj tigress ;-D

    These look like fun and great for summer. I don’t mind the short wear on lippies or glosses if the color and finish is what I’m looking for–I’ll order these next time I order to stock up on my clinical skin care. I got a full sized bottle of their Luminosity Pro Brightening Serum and was hesitant to try it because I had some issues in the past with another of their serums (which after using this I figured out what the issue was LOL) anyway wanted to tell you that after a week the luminosity serum is making my skin appear to be smoother and less mottled (younger ladies as yourself Muse may not have concerns about that but I’ll be 50 this year and it is a concern when you have mature skin usually). Oh and the problem that I had encountered with the other serum was that the dispense pump (also with the luminosity serum) dispenses way way way too much product. If you only use about a 1/3 of a pump you get the right amount of product without it sitting on your face and causing breakouts. No breakouts is a good thing in my world:D


    • 4/4/11 13:30 the Muse:

      i haven’t tried the serum jatros but sounds pretty good on the site ;-D currently trying the pads, believe you rec’ed them!


  • 4/8/11 12:41 Wright.Mark:

    Thanks for the review! I love sharing with my customers, real reviews! I personally have also tried them and when I thought nothing could replace my Glow Baby Glow Luxe in Flirty, I fell hard for my Chica Coral in the Ibiza Sol Marbelized Gloss. They are available at 4.22! Reps can get them ordered for you now. Thanks again, I can’t wait for my customers to read your review!


  • 4/23/11 14:29 katrosado:

    Finally ordered two of these (all but the pink, Pink can be a funny color for me to wear I have to try it first). Thanks Muse 😀


    • 4/25/11 11:06 the Muse:

      yay katros ;-D that’s brilliant! my pleasure let me know how the pink turns out!


  • 5/3/11 20:17 katrosado:

    I think I’m in love with the look of this bronze lip gloss. Avon has really improved the quality of their glosses! I got my order this week and have worn it everyday. :)


    • 5/4/11 9:38 the Muse:

      ayayayayay katros happy to hear it chica!
