Like any quasi girly girl I love trying new makeup. I am not a big spender when it comes to makeup, though. I tend to buy a lot of brands you can find at your local drugstore or grocery store, being a busy mom who tries to consolidate all her shopping trips into one!
mark, which is made by Avon, sent me some of their latest products to try this summer and two, in particular, are my new faves.
I am a lip gloss lover. I don’t feel like I have my full make up on if I don’t include some sort of lip color. mark Gloss Gorgeous Stay On Lip Stain is the perfect daily lip color. I’ve been wearing Bella, a nice berry shade for going into fall. It has a faint mint scent and I have been wearing this daily. I really love the shade and the staying power! It’s a gloss and lip stain in a clickable applicator that fits nicely in my makeup bag and retails for just $10.
Get A Tint Tinted Moisturizer Lotion SPF 15, which retails for $10, is my other top pick from the samples sent to me by mark. This was the perfect daytime makeup for this summer when I want a little coverage, plus sunscreen protection, without wearing full-on makeup. It’s perfect for the weekends, too, when I am most likely at the soccer fields cheering my girls on! I don’t have porcelain skin (who the heck does) so it’s nice for those days when I don’t want to get totally made up, but I need a little coverage.
Actress Ashley Greene (of Twilight fame) is mark’s celebrity spokesperson (check our her favorite mark products here) and mark cosmetics have been featured in beauty magazines such as Allure for being a great bargain.
