Many people still don’t know about mark. which is Avon’s sister company and many still think of Avon as “dated” because we remember our mothers and grandmothers using it. But hey – our mothers and grandmothers are wise women aren’t they? 😉
Avon and mark. have really impressed me over the years.
In fact, if you’re a regular reader of this blog you will see that many of my accessories are from Avon and mark.! I’m actually quite excited about all the Spring Avon and mark. products that are out right now.
Lipsticks! I love when Avon introduces new lipsticks. Once I find the colours I like they become staples in my purse. I’ve always found them really moisturizing with great colour pigment. The Ultra Colour Absolute Lipstick does not disappoint.
The Pure Orchid is my favourite and is currently in my purse. Over 50% of the ingredients are moisturizing which makes this lipstick perfect for the cold winter months. There are 12 amazing shades and they retail for $12 each.
Coming in March is the new Eye Dimensions Eyeshadows which will retail for $10 each.
These shadows are actually more shimmery than they show up in the photographs. There will be 6 shade combinations in total.
If you’re ever looking for great accessories and gifts I suggest taking a look at mark. They have some REALLY cute and on trend stuff. Avon and mark. tend to sell out of things after a few months (sometimes weeks) and not bring stuff back. While this can be a little annoying it can also be a plus as the likelihood of EVERYONE having the same item is pretty low.
Take this Fab Flora Makeup Bag for example. How cute is the black and white chevron mixed with the floral print? It has two compartments so you can separate all your essentials. It’s already available and is $20. This actually gives me some print mixing inspiration for an outfit!
I’ve written about mark nail polishes before and they always come out with great mini combinations.
This time the duo comes with a bonus! The mark. Nail This Look Nail Color & Bracelet Set is only $28 – a raspberry shade + a cotton candy shade make for a sweet and pretty manicure while the bracelet puts a bit of edge into your look.
Finally, I cannot get over how pretty this mark. Chic Frills Powder Blush is.
I almost didn’t want to use it since I just LOVE the lacy pattern. Two complimentary shades in one for $14 – you can use them individually or swirl them together for a spring glow!
So, those are my favourite Avon + mark. picks for spring!
