Mark. Review and Giveaway

So pretty!
I have an AMAZING review and giveaway to share with you today!   Chelsea of Diamonds, Dog Tags & Diapers is a mark. rep and has sent me 4 items to review and will send the same 4 items to one lucky reader of Many Waters!

To be honest, before receiving the products I had heard of mark. but had never used any of their items.  I was excited to try them out.  I'll admit that I'm not the best with makeup but I do enjoy wearing it.  New makeup is always fun!  I haven't been wearing too much lately but with the warmer weather I like to wear light makeup.  I also feel better about myself when I'm wearing makeup, which is something I can use right now with my growing belly.

I was sent a Lash All You Want mascara, A Super Flip Kit with 9 eye shadows on one side and face powder on the other, and a hookup with a Get in Line eyeline and a Glow Baby Glow lip gloss.  It was love at first sight.  I might have actually squealed when I opened it.

Lots of colors!
I was excited about all of it but was in love with the eye shadows.  I haven't had any new in about a year and the colors are so pretty! I love having options and not being limited.  The shimmery white is perfect for a base.  Some days I feel more brown, other days more purple or green.  I haven't branched out to use the yellow (yet...maybe I will but I'm not always adventurous when it comes to new eye shadow.)  I also love the size.  It's perfect to toss in my purse (or soon to be diaper bag) for a quick touch up on the go.  What makes this flip kit even better is that the other side has face powder so you never have to worry about being shiny!  They call it a flip it because it flips around...something that took me a little bit to figure out.  I guess I spaced on the name flip kit but once I figured it out a light bulb went off.  I'm a little slow these days.

The other side of the Super Flip kit
The hookup is very cool as well.  One side is liquid eyeliner and the other side is a pretty sheer lip gloss.  I have a love of what The Man calls "lip stuff."  This includes lip balm, lip stick, lip gloss, lipstick...I can never have enough.  This one leaves my lips moisturized and have a shimmery color.  It's perfect to wear alone or to put over a lip pencil or lipstick.  The eyeliner is easy to use and makes super precise lines.  This is important because I'm a little apprehensive of liquid eyeliner.  This one goes on well but I'm still not a fan of liquid liner.  Give me a pencil any day!  Since you can customize your hookup I would get something else, like a perfume, in the future.  Or maybe a different lip gloss...

The mascara is the perfect finishing touch for the eyes.  I used it a few times before making an opinions on it but it goes one smoothly (I haven't had any clumps yet!) and easily.  My lashes look nice and long.  The brush bristles are smaller than what I'm used to but I really like wand.

I hope you're excited to win these fabulous items!  Thank you Chelsea for your generosity!  Good luck to all my lovely readers...I know you'll enjoy them as much as I do.

  1. Ooh, great giveaway! I love make up. I think I'd try the liquid eyeliner - I'm the opposite of you and can't do pencil, but I've loved liquid ever since my brother introduced me to it! :)

  2. Ooops forgot to tell you what I would try - love all the eye shadow colors!
