mark Summer Collection 2009: mark Exotics Collection

If you're looking for cheap, who isn't nowadays? Check out the new mark Summer Collection for 2009 entitled Exotics.


Introducing new mark Lip Exotics Lip Lacquer Hook Up for $6 each available in five shades. These are a conditioning, high shine close with a cool spearmint flavor and a pigmented color payoff!


Kinda looks like MAC lip lacquers but way cheaper. I can get on board with these for sure. They were the first thing that caught my eye from this collection and possibly the best item available.

Also releasing are two mark Good Glowing Mosaic Blush Custom Color blushes in two new shades. These are $7 each and do not come with a palette, they are part of the custom color system so you'd have to buy a palette separate to stick them in. Although pretty they hold little appeal for me.


And finally mark Eye Exotics Eye Shadow Trio which contains three shades of shadow for wearing alone or combined. Again, not so thrilling and kinda reminds me of the Avon Marimekko palette I reviewed a few months ago, which was much nicer by the very way. I could get excited about this if they had more than one shade selection available, all that blue does little to excite me.


Not much of excitement here although the blush and the lip lacquers hold my interest (particularly the lippies). If you're looking for a few budget friendly makeup options of Summer you may want to take a peep.

It's all available now at the mark website.

I hear the eye trios are not great because they do not show up well =( They look fun though!

hey Muse--
there are actually two other colors in the eye palettes, they are in the catalog, but it doesn't look like they are online yet--a green/tealy looking one, and an orangy bronzy one...the greenish one looks gorgeous! Also, if you haven't tried the mosaic blushes, you should--they're really pretty and shimmery; I have one of the other ones and wear it just as much as my nars or mac blushes. Avon doesn't do much for me, but the mark stuff is quality. Love the blog, btw!
