I was wandering around this past Saturday, picking up things to repair a window and I just happened to walk into the new Avon store located in the West Lake Shopping Center. I am not really a fan of Avon, but I figured I'd check it out. And I'm glad I did. I found this amazing line called mark., which I am slightly less enamored of now that web research has told me of Lauren Conrad's endorsement.
But, nevertheless, it is great. I don't care too much about the actual make up (foundation, etc), but rather their "hook ups". Small tubes and cylinders of make up which can be connected with a plastic center and go for about $5 each. They are absolutely perfect for me to keep in my purse or in my apron at work. I got a lip gloss and a eyeshadow, similar to the one I wear at work a lot, for touch ups.
I got the Glow baby Glow Luxe lip gloss in "Lotus Luxe" and the Winkstick Eyeshadow Stick in Coy. I am also considering going back and getting the special set they had for $15 which came with a cylinder for mints (that connected to lip gloss would be super for work), a darker gloss, eyeliner, mascara, and a little pouch. I may only be available in the store or from an Avon representative. The Winkstick is a little bit sheer, so maybe next time I would opt for the I-Sheer Creamy Eye Shadow. I think it could be layered on better.
I am also intrigued by the available skin care "hook up", a combined Kiss Dry Goodbye Lip Smoother and gloss would be good to have in the purse. And maybe the Get Clearance Anti-Acne Blemish Treatment Gel would be nice to have on long days out of the house.
They also have a plethora of fun shadows and blushes that can be mixed and matched into a convenient palette. I am all about easy traveling and lovely shadow colors, so I'll be trying more products over time!
