Mark Exotic Beauty Face Mosaics Review & Swatches

Mark Exotic Beauty Face Mosaics Spring 2013

Mark Exotic Beauty Face Mosaics ($16) is a new gorgeous highlighter launched with the Mark Marrakesh Collection. At a glance I thought this shimmering powder might work as a blush as there is a gorgeous coral buried in the design….

Blush and highlighter?

Did it work?

Sadly not…damn! This is a shimmering coral, gold, and bronze combination but the lighter beige gold dominates the powder so that’s exactly what translates to skin. The palette has this pretty floral burst design with a lovely burnt coral shade on the outer edges, see it? I thought perhaps I was dealing with a ton of over spray and that coral would make a lovely blush but sadly the creamy beige gold runs straight through the palette. Mark should consider taking that gorgeous coral and making a blush of it!

This has a frosty finish with a heavier velvety texture that feels almost like a creamy powder of sorts. You have to be extra careful during application as it is easy to over do things especially if you have larger pores or drier skin as this will accentuate such areas. I suggest a moisturizing primer for drier skin prior to application and using a fan brush so you can pick up a small amount of product and dust it on the tops of your cheek bones.

It has a golden beige reflection on skin that’s quite gorgeous when applied correctly. I happen to be a little bit of a klutz applying powders like this as I have a heavy hand. But if you can refrain and get just the right dusting down I promise you’ll be quite pleased with the results especially on tanned or olive skin tones!
