What's New Wednesday - Avon and mark.

For What’s New Wednesday, I like to show you the newest additions to my collection, for this week it’s from Avon/mark. I really am an all around person for cosmetics – From high-end lines to your local drugstore; at the end of the day, the most important issue for me is quality. I really found that Avon and mark., do offer pretty good quality stuff at great bargain prices.

Okay this is called the mark. it kit and it’s such a wonderful, compact make-up palette. It has three powder shadows and a blush/bronzer on one side and it flips to reveal three, eye/lips/cheek cream colors and three lipglosses. I honestly can’t tell you how many ways you can use this palette since you really have great versatility in this one compact. This has been my go to compact for the past couple of days, I love it.

Next up, lipstick. One thing I totally love Avon for is their lipstick, and they are really the #1 seller in lipstick as far as cosmetic sales go. Anywho, I decided to give their new lipstick line a try – Ultra Color Rich Mega Impact in Fuchsia Fun since I really wanted a lipstick in a nice purple pink color. I was pretty happy with it, my only downfall with it was that it was really shiny- but it was okay since I toned it down a bit with a matte lip primer under when I reapplied it. The new line is good if you looking for brighter tone – more true to color lipstick.
I also picked up the True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Electric Purple. To be honest, I’m not crazy about it. It’s okay if you just want a couple of everyday shadows and you don’t want to buy a whole bunch of unnecessary colors, or you want a palette of the same range of colors. I guess what threw me off was the green in the palette I chose. Overall, good pigment, color stays but not my style.

Last but not least, I got two pair of earrings that I had been eyeing for a while. Both styles are available in silver and gold tone. I was bit skeptical ordering since I love to see my accessories up front since I’m so picky about quality and workmanship, but I was really pleased. I’m so in love with them. I’m thinking they will pair up great with an up-do hair style and bare shoulders.

All the products can be found at Avon / mark. or contact your local rep.
