The mark site has been updated with the Holiday Collection for 2008! I have many International readers so I’m just going to take a brief moment out and explain that mark is a branch off of Avon. Avon caters to a more mature audience and mark was created to appeal to teens and women in their twenties (or in the Muse’s case women in their thirties! What can I say, I never grew up!).
Although I’m a big supporter of mark, I do feel that sometimes there Holiday coffrets are a tad bit overpriced for what you get so I highly recommend searching E-bay for a good deal on these items as they end up there for much cheaper prices!
Four gifts sets have been introduced for the Holiday and they are pretty much the same as years passed aside from the packaging. They are all actually very cute it’s just the price that puts me off slightly!
mark Most Loved Eyes Kit $16 USD
Includes the following:
I-Sheer in Meringue, Mousse, Praline, Sorbert, and Galcee
Metalliner in Blue Chrome and Quick SIlver
On the Edge Liquid Eyeliner in Cleo
Packaged in a Red Makeup Pouch
mark Most Loved Lips $16 USD
Includes the following:
Glow Baby Glow in Sweet Talk and Player
Metalluscious Gloss in Opulence and Majesty
Glow Baby Glow Luxe in Pearl Luxe and Melon Luxe
Packaged in a Red Makeup Pouch
You can see what I mean from the above sets when I say that the gift sets are a tad bit high costing. At $16 USD these are SUPER mini glosses and eyeshadow items. For a few dollars more I can indulge in a MAC gift set that has WAY bigger sizes!
Now the mark Serious Case of Glam Train Case is well worth it’s price tag at $32 USD considering it contains full sized products plus a rather nice case to tote them around in!
The mark Serious Case of Glam Train Case contains the following:
Sydney Flip For it Color Kit (Four Lip Glosses, Two Shadows, and a Blush)
Glow Xpert Face Shimmer in Champagne Glow
On the Edge Liquid Eyeliner in Medusa
Limited Edition Brush Set (5 pieces)
And finally the last item available is the mark Glamourlicious Lips Mini Juice Gems Set for $12 USD.
This contains four mini glosses flavored in Gingerbread, Candy Cane, Apple Cobbler, and Ice Cookie.
If you’re loving these they are available now on mark’s website!
Tell the Muse!
mark Earth Face Glow
mark Gorgeous Eyes Trio
mark Pure Eye and Lip Strips
Look! Dontcha want ‘em?
After all the insanity of Holiday Collection that I’ve been bombarding you with lately I’m sure you needed a break and wanted to hear more about Fall!
Check out mark’s new Earth Face Glow powders! Sweet right?
These quite remind me of many of the highlighting powders released by Banila Co and VOV and also somewhat like a MAC MSF too!
At $7 USD each you can afford to indulge in one or all three! I want to check these out because they really look quite pretty and I wouldn’t mind a bit of shimmer and sparkle on my cheeks!
They are available in three shades Pebbles (Soft Peach Shimmer), Quartz (Rose Shimmer), and Solar (Gold Shimmer).
I bet if you check E-bay you could probably get ‘em for $4-$5!
Yes, the Muse must go and check now because she thinks she needs these on the double!

Indulge your need (and greed) for palettes while keeping your costs down with mark’s new Eye and Lip Strip Palettes!
I’m an Avon junkie lately.
Yea so? And?
Can you believe I said it aloud? It’s kinda like going to an AA meeting and admitting that you do indeed have an addiction!
This is not your mama’s Avon anymore kids. Seriously lately they have been introducing some seriously cool stuff!
Currently I’m really loving the pure eye and lip strips and yes they are sitting very comfortably in my virtual shopping cart awaiting me to hit submit!
The colors of the shadows aren’t so wow aspiring but I must say that both lippie palettes look yummie to my eyes and since I’m busy sporting nudes and neutrals lately I’ll go ahead and admit that even the eyeshadows look kinda nice! Plus the price is right at $5.99 USD per a set!
Am I the only one loving these?
Here’s an inexpensive gloss I actually LOVE! It’s so difficult to find a cheap gloss that’s actually good but mark Glossblossom wins both the inexpensive and great award!
The gloss itself is actually clear and it basically makes the same promise as Smashbox’s O-Glow in that it’ll transform into your perfect pink upon application!
I personally don’t find it very pigmented and on my lips it mostly looks clear not pink however don’t let that change your mind it’s actually quite good!
You might remember when I did my review on Bourjois Paris Eau de Gloss if not click here and read! The reason I’m bringing up Eau de Gloss is because Glossblossom is similar in texture. The base of the gloss is quite like water and it’s super slick and super glossy minus the tacky, stickiness of other glosses I’ve tried. It basically feels like I’m spreading water on my lips, it’s very moisturizing! When I have this on I feel like I have nothing on which for me is a plus as I hate my lips to feel all gross and sticky and most glosses always make me feel that way!
I love this over lipstick, lipstains, or to wear by itself. It’s quite long wearing too! I know some people had mentioned they had experienced problems with Eau de Gloss in that it slid off and wasn’t as long wearing as it promised however I find Glossblossom lasts a good 4-5 hours (minus drinking of course) before it’s gone completely! It also has a very subtle, delightful little fruit flavor to it (nothing overpowering! Just a little hint of fruit).
This is a total favorite item of mine and I have these little tubes stuffed in my desk draw and purse for touch ups!
Plus it’s cheap as day old chips at $6 (but you can get it cheaper! I get mine off of E-bay for $3.50-$3.99).
Glossblossom is Muse approved for purchase!
