Mark Summer 2014 Neon Kisses Sheer Lip Gloss and Neon Gaze Eye Shadow: Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.
Although it's only May, it's really starting to feel like Summer with all the new Summer releases from makeup brands. Today I have a few items from Mark. to swatch for y'all. Mark.'s limited edition summer makeup collection this year is themed around neon colors. To read more about the Neon Kisses Sheer Lip Gloss ($14.00) and the Neon Gaze Eye Shadow ($11.00), click........
Neon Gaze Eye Shadow ($11.00):
What it is:
-Pigment-rich dome-shaped eyeshadows in fun summer ready neon shades
-Long wearing formula can be applied wet and dry

The Neon Gazes come in small black jars with a twist off lid.

Pigmentation & Formulation:
Neon Gaze: This is a yellow shimmer with a satin finish. The pigmentation is very good for a yellow shadow. The swatches below are dry and over bare skin but as you can probably tell, a even more intense pigmentation can be achieved when applied wet or over a primer. The texture is very nice and smooth as well.
Sun Flash: This one is a beautiful bright blue shimmer. My swatches don't do the color justice as the shade is a lot more intense in person. The pigmentation is incredible and the texture is smooth and buttery.
Swatched dry over bare skin.

Neon Kisses Sheer Lip Gloss ($14.00):
What it is:
-Lip glosses that are super bright in the tube and super sheer on the lips 
-Provides high shine and moisturization

The Neon Kisses come in sleek, clear cuboidal tubes with a black lids. The applicator is a standard doe foot applicator. I really love the typography of the logo and cardboard packaging design, very cool!

Pigmentation & Formulation:
Wild Orange: This one is a sheer coral shimmer free lip gloss. These glosses have a very soft and non-sticky texture. They provide good hydration and feel very comfortable and lightweight on the lips.
Twisted Lime: A green lip gloss? When I first open the packaging I actually went "ooooh". But as you can see from the swatches below, the green is very sheer so you get mostly golden green shimmers. The texture of this one is just as nice despite the shimmers; there is no grittiness. 
I am quite a fan of all these products from the Neon line. The quality of the glosses are super impressive and the shadows will sure win over some fans of bright eyeshadow!

These Mark. summer 2014 products will be available as of June 2014 through Avon Independent Sales Representatives and on Mark. online.
