Motherhood is hard, makeup doesn't have to be.
I simplify makeup for busy moms.

It’s a PinkLouLou Christmas: Meet Mark.

I haz it. 
It’s no secret I love makeup. Do I have 67 eyeliner’s like Caroline? No, but don’t get me started on her issues…
But I do love makeup.
 It is so fun to discover new products, and play with different looks. 
Amber sent me over a bunch of Avon’s Mark collection products and I was super excited to try them all out and let you guys know what I think. 
I first noticed the packaging. They get an A+ for branding. I love the simplicity of their design, and their creative names for all of their products. Call me crazy, but I notice these things. 
Amber sent me tons of stuff, (thanks Amber!) but I am going  to highlight some of my favorites for you. 
1. Get a Tint tinted moisturizer.
Granted I won’t use this as much in the winter, as I iz way to pale. However in the summer I will use it all the time. It has a light finish, with just enough color to make it perfectly wearable under a powder.
2. Lash All You Want mascara. 
I am picky about mascara, as most people are. If you like full fluffy brushes, this probably isn’t the one for you. This brush has the stiff plastic-y bristles, which I think are perfect for separating and lengthening. It just totally depends on the look you are going for, and what kind of brush you like. I like how the wand has bristles on the tip, to get the tinniest of baby lashes. Also, I get mascara everywhere, but this wand made it easy for me to avoid getting mascara all of my eyelids, especially in the car. Pretend you didn’t hear that.
Boom, hey there lashes. 
This thing is so cool, it flips. One side is eyeshadow, other side is lip gloss/lip color. Umm hi, that is fantastic. I keep this baby in my purse for all on the go needs. The eyeshadow colors are a fabulous neutral palette and I find stay on great when used with a good eye primer.  (great gift idea here ladies). The glosses are nice as well, not sticky (my biggest pet peeve). 
Here is a better look at my favorite eyeshadow colors
I use these three all the time for a neutral smoky look
And voila, ready for a night out with the girlies.
I loved all of the products and would definitely recommend. They are also budget friendly. Makeup does NOT have to break the bank people, I assure you! And Lindsey I feel positive, agrees. 
Grab some of the flip compacts for your girlfriends, sisters, whatever. At $20 a pop, they are a checkbook conscious gift, that your friends will LOVE!
If you have any questions about any of the products, email miss Amber at

Happy Friday!

    I had to do a doubletake because I thought that last picture was a picture of Carrie Underwood. I took a second look because I thought it seemed an odd that you would randomly throw a picture of her in this post and realized it was you 😉

  10. Emily says:

    Love.Love.Love. I've been needing to get some new moisturizer for the winter, so I think I'm gonna check out the Meet Mark Collection, I also LOVE the mascar, but seriously with my lashes I don't think anything can help. Le Sigh. You, as always, look fabulous. oxo

  11. Mark came out when I was in high school…so 7 years ago? (eww) Anyway, I used to sell Mark when I was in high school (like legit I would sell it out of my locker because I was a makeup junkie back then and I still am now!) and I loved all their stuff, and I agree the branding is great! It looks like they have some great new products so I'll have to check them out! 🙂

  12. Carroll says:

  16. Ooo! I have been looking for some good tinted moisturizer. I might have to check this stuff out. Also I love that makeup bag! Have a great weekend, Lou Lou! xx

  17. Ciara says:

    Mark is one of my favorite brands out there. Oh, and I'm glad you notice the little names too. How clever, right?

    How did you like the glitterati? I know about a month ago they had tons of glitter shades, but I wasn't brave enough to get them. Wimp, I know. But I can't afford to buy something I'll never use…

  18. love your eyelashes girl!!

  19. Marion says:

    Love the idea of makeup for all my girlfriends this Christmas!! How can you go wrong with something they all need and already love?!
    You look gorgeous…so I'll def look up these products! 🙂
    XO – Marion

  20. Nicole Rene says:

    You look fabulous & wow if my eyelashes could look like that everyday I would be a very very happy girl!!!!! 🙂

  21. Virginia says:

    Your makeup looks gorgeous!! I reeeally want money to get supa nice makeup this year, it'd be a splurge but I think it's so fun!! OK I have a random question that I've been wondering for about eleventy years: How do you put the black words & arrows on your pictures? Don't laugh at me, I'm just a simple idiot. Any response is much appriciated!! Thanks,

  22. MrsMatched says:

    Cute stuff, girlie! You sold me on that mascara. I am going to have to order me some. I went to look for that eyeshadow/lipgloss palette, but it looks like they're selling a different one now. It has blush and highlighters now. Boo. I don't think I like that as well. Bummer.

    I think I'll try to find me a mark rep that can let me know if the one you posted about is still available anywhere.

  23. Rhonda says:

    I"m a mark. rep and I'm telling you… I'm a former Estee Lauder and MAC girl CONVERTED. Love it so much!

  24. Asha says:

    Mark is definitely GREAT makeup! I have a feeling that my friends will be getting some flip compacts from me now 🙂
