The Mark On the Dot Smokey Eye Color Compact takes on a smoky, sultry look for Fall!

The On the Dot Smokey Eye Color Compact is pricey at $16 ouch and smaller as the shadows are less than a dime in size but if you can get passed that this has some fun essential shades for a smoky blue or green look.

Mark On the Dot Smokey Eye Color Palette Swatches

This comes in a small compact which has a tiny strip of a mirror located at the bottom of the compact. Inside you’ll find nine shades of shadows dominated by blues and silvers with some forest-y greens thrown in for good measure. They have fairly good pigmentation with a velvet-y texture that applies easily onto lids without fall out. They are a bit heavier on lids so they look cakey if you aren’t careful! I’d suggest a sponge applicator to blend it to a super soft, even finish. Color stays best and truest with primer underneath but typically fades quickly without and loses intensity within a four hour period before showing signs of creasing and fading without the aid of a primer.

I think the palette is fun and I’d likely make use out of these shades easily. Typically blue isn’t my color of choice but these definitely have appeal and aren’t so pigmented that they emphasize my dark circles. My issue is cost….$16 is a bit too high for a palette of this size. Mark continues to go higher and higher with their pricing and I’d love to have them cut down slightly. $10 would be the perfect price for this cute palette and make it utterly budget friendly.

At $16 I’m thinking borderline twenty bucks and that’s a tad high!

Cut the price and you’d have a happy girl here Mark!

    Pigment looks amazing! The quality of shadows are definitely much better than they were in the past so $16 isn’t too bad. However; let’s talk about the $70 shoes and $60 purse Mark is selling…wen did Avon/Mark go fancy?I always think of this brand as being on the lower end of the quality scale.

      I agree. I saw the new Mark items and could not believe how expensive they are! A cheap looking set of earrings for $36-ridiculous.
