mark It Kit trend Color Compact

I love the Mark line of cosmetics by Avon.  Their hook-ups are great as well as this mark It Kit trend Color Compact which offers a two-sided palette full of spring’s hottest, straight-off-the-runway shades.  One side features three shadows and a bronzer. Then, flip the palette around for a combination of lip glosses and color creams for eyes, lips and cheeks.  $20 Avon
