mark Holiday Collection 2008

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
Scanda-Lash Mascara
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
Scanda-Lash Mascara
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!

Love ’em?

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.

    I really love the holiday juice gems sets – the little sizes are great, and I almost always like the colors better than the regular ones. Claire wants!

    hey muse! i hope you are feeling better and I’m loving your latest holiday collection posts. I was just looking through your older posts on the previous mac holiday collections and I really really really want one of the 2006 holiday eyeshadow palettes. I was wondering if you think it’d be okay to buy it from ebay (if i can find it hopefully), since it is almost 2 years old. I don’t know much about the shelf life of eyeshadows, could you please check if yours are still working alright after 2 yrs? thanks so much

  • the Muse

    lol claire 🙂 I want too..I’m a little bit disappointed at the price but nothing that ebay can’t cure 🙂

    thanks for the comment!
    Stop back again soon!

    hi kanita!

    I’m getting there, thanks so much for your concern 🙂

    Yay glad you’re enjoying holiday coverage so far 🙂

    I can totally understand your lemming for an older palette 🙂

    I do believe it’s fine. Just be sure it’s from a legit seller and it’s not black market also if you have a CCO check there as last year’s christmas items are available.

    Powder shadows have a shelf life of 5-6 years so yes mine are great 🙂

    I hope this helps!

  • the Muse

    I like Juice Jem glosses, but the shade they sent me looked horrific on me…they moisturize well, and the applicatior, instead of being straight up plastic, is fuzzy, which makes for comfy application. but man…the shade I got…didn’t like it. I already put it in a package for a friend of mine in Germany…should have sent it to you XD

  • the Muse

    AHHH FUZZY APPLICATORS!? That’s the devil’s work!!!!!!!!!!!!

    aw your tweet thank you hun *hugs*

    fuzzy applicators scare me 🙁
