What’s up? It’s terribly cold and rainy today in New York. I swear Fall just left us quite suddenly and I do believe it’s kinda full on winter. The rain feels like little drops of ice, yak! Not a fun feeling but that’s New York, Winter is our specialty.
This is the time of the year when my skin begins to resemble a raisin in the sun so I really need to do double duty with the prepping and priming and moisturizing, etc…etc…On that note I thought I’d interest you in a little find from mark.
I hear you guys when you talk and I know you’d like to see a few cheaper reviews thrown in here and there. I do realize when I review cheaper stuff it’s always not a raving review because the Muse does so believe you get what you pay for. But on occasion cool stuff slips into my grasp that doesn’t cost me alot and does work.
mark Mist Opportunity would be such an item!
Jump for the review!
I love gift cards.
Gift cards for holidays, birthdays, special occasions, I don’t care whatever it is I love ‘em. I like giving gift cards alot.
Ok, go on, you can say it. OMG Muse you impersonal biatch! But listen….my sister is the type of person that freaking has everything and alot of my friend’s are like that too. It’s really difficult settling on a gift for people like that so gift cards are so awesome. I really like the idea of giving someone a little extra cash to spend at their favorite store, it’s a rather great thing for the receiver in my humblest.
Now to some extent I agree they are kinda impersonal which is why I always try to spice up the gift card with a small gift or little goodies to make up for the impersonal aspect of the card itself.
Here are 20 GREAT palette ideas that are $20 and under which would be great to stuff in a stocking, give as a small gift to people, or to accompany with a gift card.
Love, love that mark has released it’s Holiday Collection! It’s early but I’m a shoppin’. Mark Holiday Collection 2009 has an offering of ten or more items this year and I’m ever so delighted as it makes my budget Holiday list really easy as items are quality and inexpensive. Loves it.

mark Self Sanctuary Berry Cranberry Scent Mist ($12)
Mist up with this unique blend of berries!
Overall, the mark Self Sanctuary Berry Cranberry Collection is a unique blend of berries. I’m quite interested to see what the combination of cranberry, raspberry, and blueberry smells like. I suspect intensely sweet which is exactly how I like my fragrances. It’s inexpensive so it’s a rather nice little treat for yourself without breaking the bank. I think I’ll snag the mist to start.
It’s available now from the mark website!
Oooo I want the new mark Mists Juicy Body Fragrances! They look darling!
Jump for the deets!
Juicy Peach, Luscious Mango, Tangerine Squeeze, and Very Watermelon sound absolutely heavenly in a body mist! I’m such a fan of fruity fragrances in the Summer and these sound just the thing.
They are $10 bucks each and only 3.2 oz in size.
Mark what in the world are you thinking? You guys are known for fun, inexpensive beauty finds. Why such a high price tag guys!?
For this price I can go to Victoria’s Secret or Bath and Body Works and get triple the size for less!
Loves ‘em but will skip on that price tag!
