You know what? When one of your favorite brands comes out with a product line that carries the same name as your first born son, you don’t buy one thing. You don’t buy two things. You go on a shopping spree. I’m sure that all of you can relate to me and understand that I would buy a ton of Avon Mark products even if just to look at. But it just so happens that they are not only pretty, but the quality is there as well.

Letos sem se naučila nekaj zelo pomembnega o svoji racionalnosti in to izkušnjo bom delila s tabo. Meni zelo ljuba znamka je izdala novo linijo izdelkov. Nisem kupila ene stvari. Ali dveh. Ne, tudi treh stvari ne – kupila sem celo goro izdelkov! Prepričana sem, da bi jih ogromno kupila tudi, če bi bili le lepi na pogled, vendar pa so izdelki iz Avon Mark tudi kakovostni, poleg tega pa nosijo tudi enako ime kot moj edinec.

Today, my baby Mark is celebrating his 1st birthday. Yes, he was born on April Fools day – many people didn’t even believe us when we texted them about his arrival. So in honor of the biggest milestone in Baby M’s life so far, here is a review of 5 shades in the Mark Plump It Lipsticks range. In total, there are 15 shades in this lipstick range but I chose five that I though would compliment me the most.

Danes moj mali Mark praznuje svoj prvi rojstni dan. Da, rojen je bil na prvi april – ko sva po njegovem rojstvu s ponosnim očkom naokrog pošiljala sporočila, nama marsikdo ni verjel. V čast največjemu mejniku v njegovem dosedanjem življenju ti danes predstavljam 5 odtenkov iz nov Avon Mark Plump it linije šmink. V celoti linija obsega petnajst različnih odtenkov, sama pa sem jih izbrala pet, za katere se mi je zdelo, da bodo najbolj ustrezali moji polti.

First, let’s talk formula. I did a lot of swatching and came to the conclusion that I don’t own many lipsticks as creamy as these. They glide on your lips effortlessly without pulling or tugging. In the shades I chose, one coat is more then enough because of great pigmentation. The finish is creamy but not shiny. After a year of wearing matte lips, I really appreciate the creamy formula as it doesn’t dry out my lips – even more, I feel like it really nourishes them.

Najprej beseda ali dve o formuli. V iskanju podobnih odtenkov sem naredila ogromno razmazov šmink v svoji zbirki in ugotovila, da jih je le malo tako lepo kremastih, kot so Marki. Na ustnice se nanesejo povsem enostavno, brez zatikanja in vlečenja. Pri odtenkih, ki sem jih izbrala sama, je en hiter nanos povsem dovolj, saj je pigmentacija izvrstna. Zaključek je kremast, vendar ne sijoč. Po tem, ko sem celo leto nosila skoraj izključno mat šminke, je mojim ustnicam všeč tudi, da jih ne izsuši. Še več – lahko bi rekla, da je šminka celo malce negovalna.

On my lips, they last about four hours if I’m not eating or drinking much. They do transfer with touch as most normal lipsticks do. What I love the most about this formula is the fact that it fades evenly all over the lip – you don’t get the »ring« as with drier formulas.

Na mojih ustnicah so Mark šminke obstale približno štiri ure, v kolikor ta čas nisem preveč jedla ali pila. Z dotikom se prenesejo, enako, kot to velja za vse standardne šminke. Zelo všeč mi je, da ta formula enakomerno bledi in mi ne pusti samo praznega »krogca« sredi ustnic, kot je to običajno za bolj suhe formule.

As with many other lipsticks, I was worried about the exaggerated scent and taste, but it’s pleasantly fruity and actually reminds me of some candy, but I cannot remember the brand for the life of me.

Kot je pri meni že običajno, me je nekoliko skrbel izrazit vonj in okus, vendar pa je v tem primeru prijetno saden. Spominja me na neko sladkarijo, vendar pa se žal na noben način ne morem spomniti, katero.

 

Cantaloupe is a nice warm peach color. If your complexion is dark, this probably wouldn’t work the best for you, but it looks pretty with lighter complexion.

Cantaloupe oziroma po slovensko melona je tople breskove barve. Če si temnejše polti, bi morda ta odtenek na tebi izgledal nekoliko nenavadno, zelo lep pa je na svetli polti.

Divine Wine is my favorite out of the range. It’s a lighter mauve color and a perfect everyday lip for me.

Divine Wine je moj najljubši odtenek v celotni liniji. Gre za svetlejšo vijolično barvo s plavim podtonom –  zame perfekten primer odtenka, ki ga lahko nosim čisto vsak dan.

Rose Kisses is a light pink shade that is really easy to wear. I was expecting it to be sheerer, but it’s very reasonably pigmented.

Rose Kisses je svetlo roza odtenek, ki ga je res enostavno nositi. Pričakovala sem bolj prosojen odtenek, vendar pa je pigmentacija tudi pri tem odtenku super.

Reddy to go made me think that it will be a red lipstick (red…reddy…), but it’s actually a bright fuchsia. These kind of shades usually look horrible on me but this color has enough blue undertone that I can pull it off.

Reddy to go mi je z imenom dal misliti, da bo svetlo rdeče barve, vendar pa gre v resnici za odtenek fuksije. Takšni odtenki običajno na meni izgledajo grozno, vendar pa ima ta dovolj plavega podtona, da ga lahko nosim tudi sama.

Uptown Pink is a dark pink that I’ll mostly be wearing in the summer. I haven’t got anything like it in my collection so I was excited about a new addition to my color range.

Uptown Pink je temnejša roza barva, ki bo najprimernejša za poletje. Takšnega odtenka v svoji kolekciji še nimam in sem ta odtenek z navdušenjem dodala v svojo zbirko.

Regular price of each lipstick is over 8 €, but you can currently get them in special promotion for 3,90 € each. The design of the bullets is absolutely beautiful in my opinion – they look spectacular on my vanity and they are a beauty blogger’s fantasy to photograph.

Redna cena vsake od teh šmink je preko 8 €, trenutno pa jih lahko dobiš v posebni promociji že za 3,90€. Dizajn šmink je čudovit – prekrasno izgledajo na  moji omarici, več kot enostavne pa so tudi za ustvarjanje prekrasnih fotografij.

Out of all the Avon lipstick formulations I’ve tried so far, these are absolutely my favorite. I probably won’t get any other shades because five is plenty, but if you’re interested in other Mark range products, check out the mascara review *here* and the primer review *here*. Also, let me know in the comments which other Mark products you’d like to see me review. And until next time, stay beautiful!

Reči moram, da je formula Avon Mark šmink moja najljubša izmed vseh, ki sem jih preizkusila pri Avonu. Drugih odtenkov ne bom naročila, saj mi jih pet popolnoma zadošča, v kolikor pa te zanimajo drugi izdelki iz linije, lahko oceno maskare prebereš *tu* in oceno primerja *tu*. Prav tako mi lahko sporočiš tudi druge izdelke, za katere bi te zanimala ocena. Do naslednjič, ostani čudovita!
