This mark Lemon Sugar candle is burning up a storm at chez Belle Belle. You probably know from this post that I am a huge lemon fan (lemon sugar is the perfect balance between sweet and fresh). I love the change of pace from all the cinnamon, alpine and fir business of holiday candles. Pick up some lemon sugar for yourself here.

Mark recently reformulated their eyeshadows and I am excited to report: I love them! The real treat is how these guys are packaged. But more on that in a bit. The new shadows are highly pigmented and blend well. They are nimble – you can apply them either wet or dry. I tend to like a sheer look, so I apply the lighter shades over the lid. And then use a wet eyeliner brush with the darker matte shades as a liner.
Now the packaging. These shadows are sold in a metal pan to be placed in one of their Snap To It compacts. They make two Snap To It compacts – one for two shadows and one for four. You can easily switch out what shades you are currently wearing. I love the flexibility of creating your own duo. For instance, I am loving my unusual combination of satin taupe (minx) and navy (nightly) to be used wet for my eyeliner – not something you often packaged together!
You can find them on meetmark.com for $7 each.
I am still a little giddy from meeting the incredibly beautiful and down-to-earth Ashley Green at the Ted Gibson/mark FNO party last week. Nestled in the Ted Gibson salon and sipping on Moet champagne, I had the chance to bond with the Twilight star over college football and the dry skin hazzards of always being on an airplane.
Almost as exciting was discovering mark Cheat Sheet Shine-Blotters. I don’t have oily skin, so these sheets were never on my shopping list. But NYC was a doozy last week, with humidity, rain, heat and sweat. In between events, I would whip out one of these guys in the cab. They do not remove makeup, but restore a matte finish to the skin. They provided life to a melting makeup look. Thanks to their performance, they earned a spot in my purse on a permanent basis.
