My mark. TOP TEN! plus a GIVEAWAY!

Ever wonder what mark. products top the list of favorites for a rep? I'm going to share my favorite things with you today, along with a great giveaway at the end of today's post!

10. Bent Out of Shape Cuff
The picture does not do this bracelet justice! It's a single piece that makes it look like you're wearing several overlapping thin bangle bracelets! It can be gently bent to help it fit your wrist better, and it looks super cute on everyone! I have the silvertone, but the goldtone is also pretty & very popular right now! $14 each.

9. Zip Around Bag - Cerulean
 I love finding unexpected favorites from mark. and that's exactly what this purse was for me! I had ordered it for a customer, and she decided that the handle drop was too short for her, so instead of returning it to mark. I decided to keep it for myself. I get compliments on this bag DAILY. I love the pyramid stud turnlock closure, it adds so much to the bag & keeps my stuff from falling out even if my bag tips over! This bag has been a huge hit for mark. and is going fast! $32 each.

8. Super Flip Color Kit
 The Super Flip Color Kit was created around Christmas, and has been a staple in my purse ever since! If you've never seen one of mark's flip kits before, they are super innovative and convenient because they contain eyeshadows on one side and lip colors on the other side of an exclusive flip-able compact! The Super Flip is not currently available in the mark. store, but I have a bunch left from a promo we had around the time I was earning my trip to NYC! So I'd like to offer them to my customers either at the discounted price of $15 each, or FREE with a $30 purchase :) Comment or message me for details.

7. Go With the Pro Mini Brush Kit
I love all of mark's brushes, and this kit of tiny travel size brushes is perfect to toss in my purse for touch ups throughout the day! I had never used pro brushes before selling mark, and the difference they make in your make up application is simply incredible! Brushes give your make up a much more natural look, and I won't do my make up without them now! $15.

6. Ibiza Sol Color & Fragrance Collection
 Alright, I'll admit I'm cheating a little with this one! With this collection, I get to talk about several of my favorite products in one post, haha. When you get the Ibiza Sol Color & Fragrance Collection for $40, you get the shades shown above - 2 mini nail polishes, Glowdacious shimmer powder in shade Shimmied Up, a marbleized eye shadow stick in shade Aqua Deep, marbleized lip gloss in shade Chica Coral (the super-trendy shade for spring & summer!), and the Ibiza Sol Instant Vacation Fragrance. This set is a $56 value! I can't say enough good things about the perfume - it is my go-to fragrance, and everyone who has smelled it loves it as much as I do! This is a limited-time scent, so snap it up while you can! I even have a customer who is planning on ordering 3 more bottles later this summer, so she can stock up before it's gone! $40 for the set.

5. Please Hold Eye Primer
 Eye Primer is another product I had never used up until a few months ago, and it makes a huge difference for me! This primer makes my eyeshadow last longer without creasing, and makes the shadow colors much more vibrant! This is another can't live without product for me! $8 each.

4. Collected Treasures Necklace & It's A Stretch Bracelet - SeaFoam

 This jewelry is another example of unexpected favorites for me! I won this set from my mark. mentor in a contest, and although it's a set that I probably wouldn't have ordered for myself, I absolutely adore it! The pieces are so unique and substantial, and they match perfectly with my #1 fave mark. product! Tribal-inspired jewelry & fashion is another huge trend for summer, and this set is perfect because it also comes in wood! Necklace $18 each, Bracelet $16 each.

3. Aviator Shades
 I'm on my 2nd pair of these sunglasses, after I accidentally left my first pair behind at Applebee's. I called later the same night and again the next morning, but they weren't found. I'm thinking one of the waitresses must be rockin' my mark. aviators! These sunglasses make everyone look like a celeb! $14.

2. I-mark Eyeshadow - Minx, Plum Velvet, & Gioia
 I just recently started experimenting with colored shadows to play up my brown eyes, and Plum Velvet is my absolute favorite shade to make my eyes pop! Gioia is the perfect gorgeous brown for everyday wear, and looks especially pretty along with Tiki on blue eyes! Green or hazel eyes really stand out in pinky shades like Luvstruck & Fairy Dust! I love practicing and playing around with eyeshadow application, so local customers feel free to ask for a free makeover! I-mark shadows are $5 each, cases sold separately.

1. Color Cluster Ring
 And my current #1 favorite mark. product is the Color Cluster Ring. This is such a stunning ring, so sparkly and pretty, especially in person! It coordinates beautifully with the new Itty Bitty Pretty Earrings, as well as the Collected Treasures Necklace & It's a Stretch Bracelet in Seafoam. This ring comes in 2 sizes and has a little ring sizer built in to adjust for the perfect fit. This ring is very vintage-inspired, like a ring you could find at an exclusive estate sale! It's definitely an attention-grabber! This is currently only available directly through me, but will be in my eBoutique starting on May 20! $16.

Haha, so as you can probably tell, a lot of my favorite mark. products are the new, limited-time accessories! I love that mark. works so hard to stay on top of the trends and give us such relevant products! I always look forward to getting a sneak peek as a rep of future mark products, and let me just tell you, there are always more awesome things coming! I leave this week for my NYC trip for the mark. National Sales Meeting, and we'll be getting to see some of the new products that will be coming for fall, as well as learning tips & tricks from mark's celebrity make up artist, Jamie Greenberg! I can't wait to come home all pumped up and ready to share the tips I learn with my customers!
