I have been curious to try one of Mark's blushes for a while (since I am an Avon rep & get access to the Mark Trend Insiders). I have heard great things about these blushes, but I couldn't decide on which color to get (wanted them all!). Honestly, you can grab THREE Mark blushes for $24, which is less than the price of ONE Nars Blush ($27!). I was debating between Sun Love Glo, Chica, Hush Baby, Love Rush & After Glo, but I ended up with Sun Love Glo & Chica. They are both GORGEOUS. Sun Love Glo is pretty matte, while Chica has a gorgeous shimmer (not glittery) sheen to it.
I was really impressed with the pigmentation when I tried Sun Love Glo on. It's not overly pigmented like Nars blushes to the point where it's hard to control & you end up wasting product because you need to wipe it off. Sun Love Glo adds that perfect peachy summery glow to my cheeks. It has nice pigmentation and a smooth, easy to blend texture. I really like it. I haven't tried Chica on the cheeks yet, so I'll be posting about that one later and how it looks on the cheeks. Sun Love Glo is a regular Good Glowing Blush, while Chica is a Mosaic one (& you get a blend of various shades).
Here's a swatch of them both without flash:
Left to Right: Chica, Sun Love Glo (from what I can tell on the swatch on the back of my hand, Chica looks more of a straight color *which I love* than Sun Love Glo, which looks more pinkish coral.

Both of these blushes are $8. You have to pay separately for a compact to put it in. There are new Snap To It compacts with full mirrors coming in the Mark fall magalog 9 (campaign 18 & 19). They look really nice. Get your Good Glowing blush now @ my store
