Mark. Love

Just to start this post out, I am a Mark Consultant and I did use my own money to buy the products below. If you would like to purchase or just simply check out all other products you can do so here My eBoutigue. Okay on to what I purchased this last month.

That's Brilliant Face and Eye Luminizer. First of I love the packaging you can twist the top to close it so product will not squeeze out into the cap. It is a bit on the yellow side but with a little blending it will work for my skin tone. Cant wait to really use this product. cost 14.00

Touch and Glow Warm Glow. Used this today, just swished my blush brush over it  and used it as a blusher. A great light shimmery bronzer for summer. You can also just use on cube if you just want that color. Very versatile product I can see my using it as eye shadow as well.  Cost 16.00

Glimmer Shine Lip Gloss in Pink Glimmer. Its very shear but just enough color to show up on the lips. A bit on the sticky side but not overly sticky. Doe foot applicator and a nice even application to the lips. Must get the other colors. Cost 12.00

Things Look Rosy Ring. My first every fashion purchase from Mark. And I must say this is a very well made ring. It does stretch to fit so can be worn on different fingers. Also on the heavy side but to me it says I will not fall apart. I will get lots of use out of this rose gold ring. Cost 18.00

Sweet Swap

This whole thing started with Cadbury Chocolate eggs on CosmeticGirlAdele  instgram photo :). I post a comment about how they look yummy but we dont have them in the states. She replyed back about doing a sweets/beauty swap. To see what I sent her go here Beauty Swap with DarbieJo .
This is what she sent my and I must say i am so excited to play with it all. The candy didnt last to long lol I do have a four year old son to split it all with. But man it was all good and happy to report no tummy aches but I will be spending some extra time at the gym. 

Cant wait to try out the nail wraps and nail jewels :) always a great way to liven up manicure. Going to save the lashes for my birthday bash in April, But I see myself using the rest on a weekly basis. Must and will do swatches and reviews after I have used them. 

So was not expecting socks jewelry or hair stuff but man I love them all :). The cat socks remind me of something my late grandmother would wear :) so they will be cherished and loved. 

I had so much fun shopping for the swap and receiving a box.

Sweet Indulgences

My very first Two Faced pallet and can I say I'm very excited about this. I have tried and loved the two faced shadow insurance eye primer and had been wanting to try other products by them. This pallet comes in a very nice tin and has two blushes, two bronzers, one highlighter, and sixteen eye shadows. Also a full size eye shadow primer and double ended brush. 
Im excited to play with this pallet and to travel. I mean really it has all i need minus a foundation. Love when I can cut down on how large my makeup bag can be.  There is also a good amount of matte and shimmery shadows. 

This was $52 dollars at Sephora :) and well worth the price for all the product that you get. Will post swatches on the eye shadows in a separate post didnt want this one to get to long. 

What is your latest indulgences?

Wednesday Wish List

My wish list for the month. 
Naked2, Burberry Body, and a Beauty blender. 

Im late to the party on naked2 and the beauty blender but I love all the reviews on them. Burberry is one of my favorite perfumes ever. I have a few bottles of Brit but I got a sample of Body a while back and fell in love and I just finished it all up too :(. 

What is your wish list this month? Anything Special you have been wanting to try?

Jumbo Lippies

This post is to go over my thoughts about Revlon, Covergirl, and Neutrogena's jumbo lip balm sticks. 

Neutrogena MoistureSmooth color stick

In the color Soft Raspberry, very soft fruity scent. Smooth application not waxy at all. Has a muted shine to it. Last a good while on the lips. Found this at Ulta for 8.99. 

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable balm stain.

In the color Honey, very minty scent. Very smooth application as well. Very high shine and last a long while. After shine wears away the color is still there. Found at Target for 7.49

Covergirl Jumbo Gloss Balm

In  the color Scarlet Twist. First of the smell is a bit much for me, smells like a crayon. Also last a good while and is very moisturizing. Its just that smell I cant get past it. Very shiny and highly pigmented. Found at Target for 6.99. 

Here is a swatch on my hand. 

In all I do like all three. Revlon is my favorite but its also the first one I have ever had. The Covergirl I want to get some other colors I just hope the rest don't smell like a crayon its very harsh to me. I do find myself wearing these more then regular lipstick or lip gloss. Its a quick and easy application and as a mom Im all about a quick use product.
