2011 NY Eve: It's almost 2012

New years eve this year falls on a Saturday. Honestly, 5 years ago I would have been completely beyond excited planning out trips to Mexico, San Francisco, the hottest nightclub or mansion party. Nowadays, I'm more settled and a family gal. I plan on having over a few friends over, making delicious appetizers, toasting on some delicious champagne at midnight and having some of Myras cake pops.

That's what I call a perfect new years eve.

I plan on wearing a dress found on clearance on my mark site right now. It's called: Mark putting on the Glitz dress and it's on sale for $19.99. I absolutely love how it looks. The material is flows, has glitter string sewn in and I find it suitable to bring in the new year. If you want to order one : Click here to purchase your mark products at >

Myras cake pops can be found on her website and if you are in the Los Angeles area, give her a ring at and order yours

Christmas trees

So, I'm going to blog on something not mark because most of you probably already did your Christmas shopping and the last thing you want to hear is more sales, reviews, etc. From me about mark. Ha!!! :)

But just in case u need last minute things for u : Click here to purchase your mark products at >

Here's about Christmas: I really hate how many of them are cut, put in homes for 5-20 days and then thrown away on 12-26th. First, they cost lots. Usually $19-$180 depending on size and type. So why not keep it up longer?

My husband and I bought a 4 1/2 footer since our space is limited to setting it on top of our counter since we have no floor space. The tree we chose cost $55 and change after a $4 stand, tax and $5 tip to the tree handler.

Our little tree was purchased on 12/16. If we were to throw it out on 12/26 we'd only have it up for 10 days. Personally, this is a pet peeve of mine: to throw a perfectly good tree out too soon. I like to throw the tree out on Jan 2nd (7 days later). Why? I like having a tree on new years eve to bring ambience to the room . Make it feel like it's still the holidays, take pics, feel festive and to extend the holiday season for as long as possible. Plus, my $55 tree gets 17 days of admiration by the lookie-looks, not just 10 sour days.

Anyhow: Check out the before and after pics below. My hubby decorated the tree with about 20 ornaments, not bad. Then I went back, added more ornaments, fairy tree topper and tree skirt. I Love Christmas trees and how they can brighten up a room during this holiday season.
How do you feel during this season while you see a tree?

Merry Christmas to all of you.

A little note: in most Latin American countries the Christmas tree is removed after Jan 6th. This is a tradition brought over from Spain. That's the day the three wise men actually made it to see Jesus and gave him his gifts. The day is the day of Epiphany. Kids leave shoes out on the 5th and on the morning of the 6th kids find presents from the Magi. (El Dia de Los Reyes Magos)

I'm not going to go as far as that though. : Click here to view this forgotten day in the USA >

Water proof, gel, all day wearable eyeliner

Once again, in have two similar products to compare for you.

-1- NARS Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner Cost: $23 each.
What it is: A dramatic and intense 12-hour eyeliner.
What it does: it takes liner to the next level. this liner has a rich, creamy color that glides on smoothly with a completely budge-proof finish. Its incomparable wear lasts for 12 hours without smearing or caking. Designed with a retractable applicator and built-in sharpener.

-2- mark. No place to run Longwear eyeliner Cost: $8 each
What it is: a gel liner, applies as a smooth creamy liner and within 30 seconds sets into a waterproof liner that will last all day without retouching or flaking.
What it does: This liner sets in a minute, is waterproof, and literally lasts all day.

MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE: I wore mark. no place to run long wear at 6:45 AM to work, wore it all day at work until 4:30 PM, once I got home I changed and left my for a 7:00 PM 90 minute Bikram Yoga session. Normally I remove all my make-up to that class because the rooms 115• degrees F and high humidity. You sweat so much you will sweat from the first minute of stretching. Anyhow, by the end of a work out your hair is drenched as if you walked in rain or poured a water bottle all over you.
The no place to run long wear was completely in place like it was at 6:30AM considering it was 8:40 PM.

I have never has this experience with any liner before, any make up I wear to Bikram always runs all over.

For the price of $8 in comparison to the NARS $23 you can't beat mark. I actually went into Sephora and tried the NARS liner and it pretty much works just like the mark, but expect to pay $15 extra dollars per pencil because the NARS is self sharpening.

With Mark you can purchase all 8 shades for $64 and buy the $3 mark sharperner specifically made for the no place to run long wearing liner and spend a total of $67.

Or you can spend $69 and buy just 3 of the self sharpening NARS.

If you'd like to get the mark. no place to run long wear go to my website, plus, you will have extra money in your pocket as well.

Eyeshadows dare to compare

So the colors that every girl needs for everyday wear are neutral types like browns ,beige, coppers, taupes and golds. They can be compliment any outfit and when the darker colors are used in conjunction they can be going-out/night colors.

You can go two routes based on how much chump change you have to spare on eye make-up to get the same type of results.

FOR THE HOLIDAYS here are two great choices
-1- Regarde Signe de Chanel four color quad ($65.00) (Limited Edition)
It will give you four fabulous colors.
It's package is super amazing and hello, who doesn't want those Chanel signs all over their make-up? Well, I do, but not really willing to fork out $65 for it. Sorry, but I have so many other things to spend my money on.

-2- Mark has a palette called on the dot neutral palette that can compete with the Chanel palette any day of the week. This one is only $15 though and you get nine similarly comparable shades.

I choose the mark. pallete and with the $50 savings I will get myself a few other items on the mark website.

If you are on the same boat here is my website and go to it, register or log in, go to make-up, eyes, and you can order yours beginning Friday 11-4-2011.

It's only available to reps at this time.

If you'd like to order yours now u can send me paypal payment to

Lemon sugar product review

I absolutely love, love, love the texture of the lemon sugar body butter.
I suffer from dry skin and I have to buy lotions that actually do more than just moisturize for a little while, but for hours.   I used to use the body shop products before discovering mark's fair trade unscented cream.   That did the job, but if you want a sweet scent the lemon sugar works excellently. 
* I tend to put on perfume daily, but just the lemon sugar lotion actually doesn't seem to need any.
* Even if I put perfume on you can still smell the perfume scent with the lemon sugar butter.
* collagen is also an ingredient, which helps your skin maintain elasticity.  (elasticity is found in young skin, old skin sags and in turm wrinkles due to lack on elasticity) 

Take advantae of the deal right now, for just $28, you will get $40 of lemon sugar items plus a make up bag. Go to view magalog and on page 43 you can see the deal. I took a snapshot. A bit blurry, but you can see it.

Min-A-Real Review

Get real - and really radiant!
This breakthrough cream-to-powder mineral foundation is the first on the market with Lumiskin complex to smooth, brighten and even out skin tone. Forget mineral mayhem - our unique formula is 100% no mess! Oil free and lightweight,  0.4 oz. net wt,  for  $18.00

I have to admit I wasn’t too impressed with the Min-a-real sample I received from mark.  Not that it was horrible, but it didn’t meet my expectations.  The sample was a bit dry, cakey and heavy.    So, I held off on purchasing the product. 

On my NYC trip make-up artist (mark celebrity make-up artist) Jamie Greenberg actually did a full face of make up on someone and I watched carefully how she used the foundation Min-a-real formula.  Plus it made the persons face look luminous and healthy.  So, I decided to order it last week.   I've been using it for the past 4 days and absolutely love the way it goes on my skin I’ve been given compliments even.  So you can’t beat that.    Plus, its lots smoother and lighter feeling than the sample I was given.

OH and guess what, you don’t have to have all kinds of loose powder containers to carry in your purse, that have to be mixed with 2-3 diff. brushes, then make up on clothes, make up bag, car, desk, like some mineral brands have.  This is cream and it turns powder when it dries on your skin.  So, no mineral mess all over your face & other places

PLUS, you can also apply it with the sponge provided on your drive to work w/o worrying about it going all over your shirt and car.   (yes, we know u do this ladies)

How to apply:
1.      Wash and moisturize face.    This crucial to do to help your make up go on fresh and last longer
2.      Use primer all over face and neck  (mark primed to perfection)
3.      Apply concealer to conceal under eye circles and imperfections
4.      With a foundation brush apply a light coat of min-a-real all over face and part of neck
5.      Apply a second layer on areas that need just a little more foundation
6.      Let it dry for 20-30 seconds to set to allow the min-a-real to go from cream to powder
7.      Apply/ dust on your favorite powder on your Tzone to prevent future oiliness and to make it a bit more matte.

Note: 0.4 oz. net wt on Min-a-real compact is the same weight on the Powder buff powder compact.  However, the Min-a-real looks smaller due to the diff. packaging and the fact that it’s a cream and not a pressed powder formula.

·         A small amount will go a long way.  Four days of usage and I can barely see a dent on my min-a-real compact.   I’ll provide another follow up blog re: min-a-real in a month. 
·         Plus, I’m saving on the amount of powder (powder buff) I’m having to use that’s a total plus!! 
·         The price is more expensive than just a regular powder, but its still about half price of other mineral foundation on the market
As usual mark has products accessible to regular people not just celebrities or folks with 6 figure incomes. 
If you’d like to purchase min-a-real: register and shop at
