mark Mists Juicy Body Fragrance

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.

The catch?

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!

This or That: mark Get A Tint Tinted Moisturizer and mark Just Pinched Instant Blush Tint


I think we’ve established that we all want cheap right now. Who doesn’t love a good deal even when the economy is good.

Check out a little of This and That from Mark Cosmetics to get your beauty on for alot less!

Click it!

You could go with this:


I adore Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer. Creamy, nicely tinted, an SPF 20 keeps me clamoring back for more please but it does have a $42 USD price tag eep!

If you’re not wanting to shell out that much cash why not go with that:


mark Tinted Moisturizer is $8 USD contains 1.6oz of product (that’s an oz more than Laura’s) and has an SPF of 15. You’re forgoing a little of the SPF but the size and price sure is right.

Bobbi and the Muse? BBF forevers! The Muse is loving Bobbi Brown Sheer Color Cheek but even I admit it’s tiny for $22 USD. You could go with this:

It’s ok if you’re not wanting to fork over that $22 bucks. You can snag a mark Just Pinched Cheek Tint for $6 which is slightly bigger and is virtually the same product as Bobbi’s version. Go with that:


A little of this, a little of that makes for a happy beauty junkie! Hope these options save you a little money!

mark Summer Collection 2009: mark Exotics Collection

If you’re looking for cheap, who isn’t nowadays? Check out the new mark Summer Collection for 2009 entitled Exotics.


Introducing new mark Lip Exotics Lip Lacquer Hook Up for $6 each available in five shades. These are a conditioning, high shine close with a cool spearmint flavor and a pigmented color payoff!


Kinda looks like MAC lip lacquers but way cheaper. I can get on board with these for sure. They were the first thing that caught my eye from this collection and possibly the best item available.

Also releasing are two mark Good Glowing Mosaic Blush Custom Color blushes in two new shades. These are $7 each and do not come with a palette, they are part of the custom color system so you’d have to buy a palette separate to stick them in. Although pretty they hold little appeal for me.


And finally mark Eye Exotics Eye Shadow Trio which contains three shades of shadow for wearing alone or combined. Again, not so thrilling and kinda reminds me of the Avon Marimekko palette I reviewed a few months ago, which was much nicer by the very way. I could get excited about this if they had more than one shade selection available, all that blue does little to excite me.


Not much of excitement here although the blush and the lip lacquers hold my interest (particularly the lippies). If you’re looking for a few budget friendly makeup options of Summer you may want to take a peep.

It’s all available now at the mark website.
