Mark says:Our perfectly sized blockbuster is compact enough to carry with you, yet packed with 22 very wearable shades! Palette features a built-in mirror and 3 applicators (1 dual-end sponge applicator, 1 mini brush applicator, 1 dual-end brush)for touch-ups on-the-go.

The palette is a mix of bright and smoky shades. It has rich blues, vibrant purples, and sparkling greens.

Pigmentation is hit and miss. Some shades are richly pigmented in one swipe while others are still sheer after 5 passes.

Texture:3/5

Texture was also hit and miss. Most of the lighter shades were soft and easy to work with. However, the matte shades were very dry and stiff. Also, both blushers were dry and hard to blend.

Ease of use:3/5

Packaging:3/5

The packaging is not really easy to carry around as the product description states. Also, it feels clunky compared to other super sized palettes I own.

Value:4/5

If you want to experiment with some brighter, or darker shades this is a great way to do it!

Cost: $24.99

Where to buy: Your local Avon lady or online at meetmark.com

Coralista is a coral color with a slight satin sheen. It is a little on the sheer side which may be good or bad depending on how dramatic you like your blushers.

Texture:5/5

The powder is smooth, silky, and easy to blend. It also didn’t settle into my pores.

Ease of use:5/5

Lasting Power:4/5

Coralista wore for around 6 hours on me before it started fading.

Packaging:3/5

I’m not a fan of the cardboard packaging. It feels flimsy and is hard to put in your makeup bag. Also, the leopard design was a little to out there for my tastes.

Value:4/5

Cost: $28

Available at: Sephora

Mark Just Blushing Powder Blush Review

Disclaimer:I got a sample of this blush, no other compensation was received. All opinions are my own.

Mark Says: “A powder so light and pressed, it’s creamy to the touch, this formula glides onto the cheeks for a gorgeous, glowing look that’s long-wearing, too.”

Baking Beauty says: “The pigmentation and blendability of this blush make it worth considering”.


I often find that bronzers look too muddy/orange on my fair skin. Something to consider instead is a light brown blush. They tend to be lighter and harder to mess up. I’ve been using Mark’s Just Blushing Powder Blush in Darling to contour my cheeckbones and along my nose.

Best for: Those looking for an affordable but quality blush.

Avoid it if: You need it for travel.




(Blended vs. Unblended)
Mark Just Blushing Powder Blush Review

Pigmentation:5/5

Darling is a light tan with fine shimmer.
What is more frustrating than trying to dig into color with a fluffy blush brush. Thankfully that was not a problem here. One dip into the pan gave more than enough product.

Texture:4/5

The blush was smooth and almost buttery. It was a breeze to blend out. However, when I did wear it on my cheeks I found the glitter made my pores more noticeable.

Ease of Use:5/5

Lasting Power:4/5

It wore for around 6 hours as a contour shade.

Packaging:2/5

I really didn’t like that this didn’t come in a compact. It would be almost impossible to use on the go without a magnetic palette of some sort and who carries those around?

I’m also nervous about storing it or accidentally breaking it.

Value: 5/5

For only 9.00 this is a steal! Many powder blushes from the drug store have hardly any color payoff, and are dry. This was the exact opposite!
