So here’s another reason why I was in Shanghai last May. Aside from visiting Avon R&D Center, I was also the first few (at least in the Philippines) to see the newest makeup line of Avon called Mark.
Mark. believes all women are extraordinary. They give women limitless possibilities to express themselves in whichever way they want and the impact they desire.
I was able to snap photos of the presentation of Mark. during our visit at Avon R&D Center. I love the simplicity of the black and white packaging boldly marked (pun intended) with the brand’s name. It’s ironically simple yet bold enough to catch one’s attention.
The brand has a full line offering base, eye, cheek, brow, lip products for women who want to create any look they want–from simple, no makeup make up look to bold, fierce and head turning makeup.
One thing that caught my eye during the junket in Shanghai was the Mark. bold lipsticks. They’ve got gorgeous shades!
When I got home from Shanghai these Mark. goodies were waiting for me! Literally jumped up and down for about a minute as I opened the makeup box filled with Mark. I was so overwhelmed that I had to allot one whole afternoon playing with it. I was so prepared to unbox and take photos of everything like I am used to but I thought about doing a video instead. Since I’ve been wanting to really do more videos this year, I figured Mark. products would be the perfect one to start with. After all, the brand has encouraged me to be bold and confident so I finally did a makeup video! Hahahaha. My video and editing skills are very novice (though I used to edit back when I was in college but guys dami kong time nun because I was single and young! Hahahaha) compared to other YouTubers. Nonetheless I enjoyed doing it so I hope you guys like watching it too!
Please feel free to comment and if you have tips on how I can improve it? I’d be happy to consider it. Anyhow, what do you guys think of Mark.? Is it something you’d be interested to try?
I personally love the eyebrow pencil, hi light duo and the epic lipstick! If you watched the video til the end you know what lipstick I used on my Mark. look below.
Loving how my Mark. FOTD (face of the day) turned out. I admit I kinda felt pressured to create a look that best describes the brand. But then I realize the brand was created for women who want to feel confident in creating a look that they can own. And for me this subtle almost barely there makeup that focus on the lips is something that reflects who I am when it comes to makeup. I like highlight one particular area of my face and that bold brown color definitely made me feel confident which is exactly what the brand aims to do.
So glad I decided to do a makeup video for Mark. instead of my usual blog even though I still feel painful shy (yes introvert kasi talaga ako e pramis) and awkward doing videos, I finally had the guts to go for it. Even thought I find it challenging to unbox, talk, put makeup while shooting and trying to figure things out all at the same time (beauty vloggers how do you do it?! Ang galing nyo!), I still did it. Achievement unlocked for me! Yay! I guess I’m slowly coming out of my comfort zone to learn more and to do more. Promise I’d do more and better videos next time! 🙂
Thank you Avon Philippines for letting me get first dibs on Mark. makeup. After doing the unboxing video, the essence of the brand has rubbed off on me. It made me realize that in my own way I can definitely make a mark (see what I did there?) in this world and hopefully leave a mark long after I’m gone. I know it’s not gonna be easy and I’m still figuring out what it is that I can contribute but I’m glad you guys have given me an opportunity to express myself through your newest makeup collection. Thank you Mark.
Mark. is now available here in the Philippines. You can shop online through avonshop.ph or through your Avon representative.
