mark Pure Eye and Lip Strips

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?


About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    You’re definitely not alone, I’ve become an avon junkie lately too. And not just the mark collection either, although I can’t wait till their new mark skincare collection comes out.

    amen sister. I’m glad I’m not lone! mark has been awesome lately. the glosses, the shadows, everything is really good. And avon has got my vote for cool new products too!

    Skincare?! Oh! I’m in!

    Thanks for the comment!

    Happy Weekend!

    I’ve already had the shadow strips (Nude) for a month or so (Oh, the joys of having an Aunt who sells Avon!…and lets me order stuff at her price!), and I was actually kinda of disappointed 🙁 They are no where near the caliber of the usual Mark eyeshadow singles. Definitely on the sheer (but shummery) side but used wet you get more intensity/color from them.

    I’m sorry if I was such a killjoy! And for my first time commenting on your lovely site, too!

    You’re right, you know: AVON has really changed since I last had an AVON mania many years ago.

    Their products, and especially the makeup line, have improved a great deal.

    It’s really cool that there’s a small store in Budapest where one can take a look at the products before buying anything. This way we don’t have to rely on the photos or color swatches in the brochure. 🙂

    Come to think of it, I kinda like their jewelry collection too, although I usually make my own necklaces and rings.

      Mark is owned and created by Avon for the more trendy/update//hip crowd. BUT it’s been a big hit with those of us not getting older,just better. Up until now it’s been makeup products. I hear they’ll be introducing skincare too. Hope this helps.

    hiya Tanya Annette!

    Aw sorry to hear it. I was curious about these but to hear they are disappointing stinks!

    Lucky niece 😉

    Hmm I never tried a mark shadow believe it or not. I have wanted to try the shimmer bricks for ages!

    You’re not a killjoy lovie. I like solid feedback on cosmetics 😉 if you hate it I wanna know about it 😉

    Thanks b/c you saved me some money as I was going to purchase these 😉

    Thanks for your comment! I hope you’ll visit often and tell me your thoughts on my posts 😉


  • the Muse

    hiya Izar! Missed you around here!

    I agree. It’s been quite different lately 😉

    Many of the items including cosmetics and skincare are actually quite good surprisely!

    I wish we had something similar as I always find the color swatches on the internet are very wrong! Must be nice having a local shop to see items in 🙂

    I kinda like their jewelry myself! I have a few necklaces and some earrings from years back and they still look great today!!!!!

  • the Muse

    LOL Row 🙂

    Google Avon Mark 🙂 Have a lookie on the site.

    PRetty nice stuff!

    Give a yell if you want anything!
    I haven’t tried these myself but the above commentor said not so great so I may skip!

    I also like many AVON products, even though I haven’t checked them out for a while now.
    However some of their products are my staples – such as their hand cream with shea butter – smells deliciously!
    And their nail polish in Femme is one of the best shades I ever used, I believe. 🙂
