Have you used Mark Cosmetics? If not, maybe you should.  Created by Avon, Mark produces an array of makeup items that will get and keep you looking stunning day or night.  When it comes to makeup, it’s so hard to pick favorites but somehow I always manage. Here are just a few of my makeup favorites from Mark Cosmetics.

Makeup Favorites from Mark Cosmetics 2

Wonderfleur

Packed with sensuality and mystery, this lovely perfume contains notes of apple blossoms, meadow dew, and fresh freesia. A couple spritz’s of this fragrance will have you smelling like a field of fresh picked flowers. The perfume offers a commanding, yet feminine scent that lasts from day to night. At only $28, you can thank me later.

On the Dot Smokey Eye Color Palette 

Who doesn’t love a good eye shadow palette? This one is very diverse, offering nine shimmering metallic shades that deliver eye popping color. Use them individually or together to create the ultimate eye looks that will have you ready for your close up. $16

Makeup Favorites from Mark Cosmetics 1

All Time Eye Hook Up Longwear Shadow

I’ve never had an eyeshadow that  lasted as long as this had on my eyelids. The true test? Wearing this shadow in the color “Sun Ray” during New Years Eve and it still being on well after the ball dropped. This product glides on similarly to the smoothness of a lipstick, and coats the eye in just a couple of swipes. It also requires very little dry time, so you can apply multiple colors in a short amount of time. $10

Gloss Gorgeous Stay on Lip Stain

There’s almost nothing better than a lip color you barely have to reapply — Gloss Gorgeous Stay on Lip Stain is one such lip colorThis click-pen stain has gloss-like base that delivers amazing amounts of moisture, tint, and shine. As the moisture and shine wear away, the color stays behind, which helps to make this product one of the best I’ve used. $11

If you haven’t tried Mark Cosmetics there is no time like the present.  I’ve narrowed don’t my favorites giving you the perfect place to start. Happy shopping! :)

The Avon ANEW Vitale line is a breakthrough formula with VitaTone Complex, an exclusive blend of patented and patent-pending ingredients and peptides, that is formulated to help awaken and invigorate dull, tired skin to renew vitality, improve skin tone and give an overall radiant glow.

The ANEW Vitale collection includes:

ANEW Vitale

The collection is great for anyone, regardless of skin tone, wanting a boost in skin radiance.  Products from the line can also be cocktailed with other treatment products from Avon.  I really like the day and night cream and I’m currently using both with  the Anew Clinical Advanced Retexturizing Peel pads ($25) and the Anew Clinical Absolute Even Multi-Tone Skin Corrector ($39.99) and I’m getting great results. Both creams are light-weight and give me a great moisture boost without feeling like I draped a wet paper towel over my face.  I’m not alone in my love of these products. Based on a clinical study, 9 out of 10 women showed improved clarity and more even toned skin with continued use.

Avon Donates $5 From Sale of Every ANEW Vitale Day/Night Cream

to Breast Cancer Research

Avon believes every woman deserves a brighter future, so for the month of October, with every ANEW Vitale Day or Night Cream purchase, Avon is donating $5 to the Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade. (Up to 1 million dollars.)
I very highly recommend you get one of the creams and a treatment product based on your skin care concern. For example, if you are like me and want to even out tone and texture, you can try my cocktail above.  If you are starting to see signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, you may try the Anew Clinical Resurfacing Expert Smoothing Fluid with the ANEW Vitale products.  Just remember that for the month of October, $5 from the sale of the every ANEW Vitale Day/Night Cream  will go to  Breast Cancer Research so now is the time to stock up.

P.S.  Feel your boobs (Breast Self Exam) and get them checked regularly by a doctor.

Avon-SuperExtend-Extreme-Mascara
Avon SuperExtend Extreme Mascara

A mascara that naturally lengthens is worth keeping around! Key word: Natural. AVON SuperExtend Extreme Mascara lengthens without being too heavy on the lashes or too overdone looking.

Some of my makeup clients do not want to look like they are wearing false lashes, especially for a basic beauty makeup application. AVON SuperExtend Extreme is perfect for this type of wear. The lightweight formula is infused with magnetic lengthening fibers that do not smudge or clump. The mascara dries quickly and keeps natural lashes soft and flexible. For those somewhat low-key days (brunch with the parents, Sunday church service, weekend errands) when you want that “I’m so perfectly perfect that I’m wearing makeup and you can’t even tell” look — AVON SuperExtend Extreme is worth a try.  www.avon.com, $9.50.

PRO MAKEUP ARTIST TIP: For a super natural look, try AVON SuperExtend Extreme in Brown Black — even if you have darker hair. It will give you length but look less obvious than traditional Black.

How often do you evaluate your skin care routine? I mean, really critically analyze the needs of your skin against the efficacy of your products. Perhaps the serum you’re using is great for managing acne, but that was five years ago and suddenly you’ve noticed tiny fine lines on your forehead. Or, perhaps your usual daily moisturizer feels great and applies well, but when stacked against current technology and advanced delivery systems, you realize that in addition to increasing hydration, maybe there are creams on the market that also eradicate wrinkles, fight hyperpigmentation, and leave a luminous finish.

I say all of this to say: Skin beyond the age of 20ish regularly goes through a laundry list of changes. It’s up to you to make sure that the products you apply topically are the cream (pun intended) of the crop and best suited for skin’s changing needs.

Does your skin suffer from diminished vitality? Is it not as plump, smooth, and supple as it used to be? In just four weeks, ANEW Genics Treatment Cream (patented with YouthGenTM Technology – inspired by genetic research on human longevity) is a fairly recent skin care breakthrough that promises to do a Cher (“turn back time”) in as little as four weeks. By boosting specific skin proteins, ANEW Genics Treatment Cream stimulates skin’s Youth Gene and triggers younger acting skin. Momma ThisThatBeauty has been enjoying the benefits ever since I gave her a jar about a month ago. Recently, I could not help but marvel over mom’s much improved 58-year old skin…Isn’t she pretty?!

Most women first reach for an eye cream somewhere around early 20’s…usually due to the effects of dryness, puffiness, or dark circles. However, as skin matures, the prevention of fine lines, wrinkles and creasing is a primary concern. Newly launched, SK-II Skin Signature Eye Cream smooths the early signs of aging at the corners of eyes and underneath.

The signature complex, a proprietary blend of Pitera™, Oli-Vityl (anti-oxidant protection), Signaline, and concentrated levels of Niacinamide, work in concert to reduce dull appearance, increase hydration, and firm the look of crepe-y skin. SK-II Skin Signature Eye Cream is serious treatment for eyes and an appropriate next step option for those of us in search of an eye cream that does more…much more! (ME!!)

It all sounds so sci-fi…A renewable energy project, turned anti-aging discovery is the real life true story inception of Algenist. Picture it: A team of San Francisco based biotechnology scientists were hard at work developing microalgae-based renewable energy solutions when they uncovered “alguronic acid”, a powerful compound connected to cell regeneration. When tested in clinical trials, younger-looking resulted…in as little as 10 days. Yes, 10 days! Now, who doesn’t have 10 days to put the claim to the test?

Ladies, start your engines…I mean, er, start your infrared LED light. Sure, topicals are effective…but why not work deeper? LightStim helps create collagen (the secret to plump, line-free skin) and improve skin’s elasticity by emitting pain-free amber and red infrared LED light. The wavelengths energize skin’s youth cells and promote radiant, brilliant complexion. The handheld, at-home device is a must add to your routine. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

Give your skin the attention it deserves. Take a step back. Look in the mirror. Survey your skin. Now, survey your medicine cabinet? Are you well-equipped to handle the skin care challenges before you? If not, re-read this blog post and compile your shopping list. Thank me later!

My hair is dry and chemically straightened, so, after washing and deep conditioning, I usually add a leave-in conditioner and a bit of oil to my scalp and ends. I also use a water based moisturizer every two to three days. This is my summer routine – in the winter it gets crazy. All of the moisture that I add to my hair makes humidity the enemy, so, I was intrigued when I read about Avon’s Lotus Shield Anti-Frizz Treatment.

A few bloggers were recently invited to Avon’s research facility in Suffern, NY, to learn about Lotus Shield. We first saw the test of the technology on a regular piece of printed paper. One side was treated with the Lotus Shield technology and the other was not. When water was dropped on the side of the paper treated with Lotus Shield, it beaded up, on the other side of the paper the water soaked in.

My intrigue quickly turned to excitement. I wanted to see how Lotus Shield would perform on actual hair. Enter the lovely volunteer below. She has naturally curly hair that was washed and blow-dried. One side was treated with Lotus Shield before drying.

I detected a slight difference in the two sides of the hair even before the lovely volunteer was subjected to humidity chamber that had about 97% humidity. Once the volunteer emerged from the humidity chamber, it was clear which side had been treated with Lotus Shield and which side had not. Dramatic…is it not?

The main ingredient in Lotus Shield is cyclopentasiloxane, a light weight silicone that is used as a conditioner, delivery agent, solvent and lubricant. Other ingredients include ethyhexyl methoxycinnamate, commonly used to reflect and scatter UV rays, acrylates/dimethicone copolymer, a silicone enhanced coating agent that allows product to stick to hair. This formula is based on the water repelling properties of the lotus plant but does not seem to contain any part of the plant itself. Avon’s mix of silicones, polymers and other ingredients, successfully forms a moisture proof barrier over hair.

My Results

On my first test of Lotus Shield, I applied it to half of my hair. I washed, conditioned, added Lotus Shield, then my leave-in conditioner and my oil (side note: Lotus Shield has tremendous detangling power.) I blow-dried my hair, then hit it with the flat iron. That day I went out into mild to moderate humidity (according to the weather report). At the end of the day the Lotus Shield protected section of my hair was noticeably smoother than the other side. On day two I noticed that the side of my hair that had the Lotus Shield was quite a bit drier than the other. This makes sense because if it’s locking out moisture (humidity) it is also locking out any other moisture product I put in my hair after the Lotus Shield has been applied.

On my second application I used the Lotus Shield after I added all of my other products. This didn’t work as well as when I followed the usage directions but my hair wasn’t as dry.

Lotus Shield does work to reduce frizz and flyaways caused by humidity. However, if you have dry hair and you use moisture enhancing products, try playing around with how you use the product until you find a product combination and application routine that works for you. Please also note that this product is a difficult to get off the hair and it may take several trips to the shampoo basin to completely remove it from your hair. Avon’s Lotus Shield Anti-Frizz Treatment is being introduced for $9.99 but the regular price is $12.00 for a two-ounce bottle.

In September Avon is set to launch Hervé Léger Femme and Hervé Léger Homme.

The version for women is a woody, floral fragrance that features top notes of Chinese magnolia flower and Sicilian pink grapefruit, with heart notes of Moroccan orange flower and honeywood, and a dry-down of warm benzoin tears, cypress wood and vanilla. Drawing inspiration from Hervé Léger’s famous bandage dress, the glass bottle is etched with criss-cross lines across the front and back. If the form flattering dress with cult-like following is financially out of reach, perhaps Hervé Léger Femme will fill the void.

Hervé Léger Homme, the spicy men’s fragrance, features top notes of Indian ginger and Japanese yuzu, woody middle notes, and ends with a woody, amber aroma.

Of the fragrance launch, Hervé Léger designer and CEO Max Azria, says this: “These fragrances capture the iconic style of Hervé Léger, which evokes the very essence of sensuality.”
