AVON & MARK Reviews

Okay so I'm going to start off by saying I DO NOT sell Avon or Mark cosmetics.. I just happen to buy some eyeshadows and bits and bobs when I see something nice.

I will start with the Avon stuff as there is only three things.

First two things are the Avon Glimmersticks Liqui-Glide Eyeliners. I have two different colours, black and black plum. I got these for about $4ea
They are SUPER soft and pigmented. I sometimes feel like they are a little bit so soft as the pencil actually breaks sometimes.. :(
They come in twist-up form.. I neither like nor dislike this.. I just dont like the way you can't sharpen them to a point..


Black Plum

Next item I wasn't completely thrilled about.. And I was really hoping it would be good..
It's the Tint-n-Go Lip and Cheek Tint. It's kind of dry and has NO pigmentation what so ever.. This was $3
Oh and I got the colour Nude.. I suppose it does have some pigmentation, just not as much as I'd like.

So now on to the MARK single eyeshadow pans. Now these are a hit or miss.. Some are amazing! And some are just... meh.. lol These go for about $7ea

First colour is LuvStruck. This is one that I was super excited about but it was lacking pigmentation.. This has some shimmer in it but not too much

The next colour is a Metallic colour called Lava. It's a beautiful dark green with flecks of gold and turquoise. The photos don't give it justice I promise!

The next shadow I tweeted about before. It's Whisper which I think is a perfect dupe for MAC Vanilla. It is one of the three matte eyeshadows that Mark has in its collection.

Next is another metallic shadow called Sugar Sugar. Nice kind of peachy tone to it, with flecks of silver and peachy pink.

Next we have a beautiful sort of chocolately brown shadow called Tiki. It has a slight shimmer but it's such a beautiful colour!

Now this one looks similar to Tiki in photo but it's actually a nice plum colour called Plum Velvet. Slight shimmer again.

Okay and last but not least is Fairy Dust. A lovely soft shimmery pink colour.

Thanks beauties! I will work on some reviews for the MakeupGEEK shadows for tomorrow or tonight. They are AMAZING!

Okay, so I am completely rubbish at this blogging thing and I am truly sorry!

I am desperately trying to figure out how to use this new editing software, find a better computer, video camera.. Oh and look for a new job.. Harder than I thought.. I'm also trying to build my makeup collection up a bit seeing as its quite lacking.. And with more makeup comes more organization... Which I am completely crap at.. Honestly I am the least tidy person, I think I need to seek help for this..

I found some awesome little baskets at a store here called JYSK, super cute affordable and trendy.. But when you live with your boyfriend in a tiny apartment, finding your own space is soooo hard! I feel like I want to move to a two bedroom apartment just so we can have a room for our interests.. half my makeup and clothes, half his crap haha!

I'm trying to stay clear of the plastic tupperware type drawers.. I feel like they are a little bit cheap looking... Just me? Meh I don't know..

Anyways guys, I am sorry.. I will try and blog some more.. I buy a lot of AVON and MARK products so if you're interested in seeing reviews on that I can certainly do that.. Keep me nice and busy.. Anyhoo, ciao beauties!

Anyways, stay tuned dolls xo

Biggest Makeup Pet Peeve Ever!

It never really bothered me too much before, usually I would just let it slide... But lately its become like an out break.. An out break of SPIDERY THICK CLUMPY LASHES! Oh my goodness. I see girls at the mall, on Facebook or at work who honestly look like they never wash the mascara off and just add another coat(s) on top.. Yuck.

This is not cute.. I understand the desire for long, full, and fluttery eyelashes.. But this is going too far. And then to pair these up with overly bronzed skin, too much orange foundation and white lips.. Is it just the girls around me or are there girls every where who were their makeup like this? Sorry if I offend anyone

Hey everyone! My favourite holiday is just around the corner and I've have a few things on my list I would love to get my paws on. Some makeup, shoes, clothes, all that fun stuff. I can't wait for Christmas. My boyfriend and I are going to be in our new apartment this year and I'm so happy.

Anyways, enough chit chat, on to the Wish List..
I guess I will start off with my makeup wish list,

1. Sigmax Precision Brushes

* they look amazing
* I've heard excellent things about them
* They look so unique and different

2. Sigma Eyeshadow Palettes

* The colours look amazing
* I love the packaging
* I love that they come with a dual-end brush

3. OCC Lip Tars

* I just really want a few of them. I missed out on IMATS this year so I didn`t manage to get any.. Ahhh well, I`ll have to wait until next year

Okay and thats really it for my Makeup Wishlist, the only thing I really would love to have is the set of Sigmax brushes.

The only other thing on my Wishlist this year is LEOPARD PRINT! Oh my goodness I Love leopard print. I`m totally dying for a fabulous pair of leopard print pumps or a leopard print bag.
