New!! Mark Flip For It in Urban Neutrals

Wow, what is it with neutrals this fall?? So hot!!

Sorry this post is so late, but I just received this about an hour ago and couldn't WAIT to share with you all!!

Mark has done it again with a gorgeous palette for the fall- packed with my favorite thing in the whole wide world (Puppies? Cute guys in glasses? Dark Chocolate?): neutrals.

I don't know what it is, but to me it seems like with every Flip For It palette Mark releases, it just keeps getting better and better...



First: the packaging. HELLO! Gorgeous. This is the firs time I've ever seen a Flip For It packaging with something other than a solid color. They did good this time around, the color scheme is beautiful and it reminds me of a sunset at the end of an Autumn day.

Now, the colors....


Top Left: Metro
Top Right: Skyline
Blush: Urban Glo


Swatches
Metro eyeshadow, Skyline eyeshadow, Urban Glo blush

I think this may be my favorite palette they have released so far, really. The first eyeshadow in Metro looks like your ordinary highlight shade, but it's more of a soft champagne with a hint of pink, very pretty. Skyline is *sigh* worthy. This is a matte neutral chocolate brown. The matte formula on this shade is buttery soft, very pigmented, and nothing like any of the other Mark mattes available. The blush in the group, Urban Glo, again has to be one of my favorite blushes from Mark. It photographed a little on the warm and a little too peachy, but in real life it's a little cooler and with hints of pink. In my opinion, all the colors work together very well.

Flip it over and on the other side you'll find the 4 lip colors....


Ambiance, Attitude
Siren, Moody


Swatches
Ambiance, Attitude, Siren, Moody

Again!!!! This palette is my favorite grouping of lip colors of all the Flip For It's I own. The top two colors are more of lipsticks, but a little on the sheer side, so I swatched more heavy to see the true color. The first shade, Ambiance, is a really pretty neutral pink. Attitude is a rosy brown, but still neutral and cool. The bottom two shades are lipglosses. Siren is my FAVORITE!!! It's a gorgeous wine/berry sheer tint lipgloss, this for me is what fall makeup is all about. Moody is a sheer, clear lipgloss with a golden sheen to it. I'm not one for glittery glosses, but it's not gritty at all and would leave a pretty effect over any lipstick.

Bottom line: this is a HIT. Mark is sure following the trend of releasing neutrals. All the shades are gorgeous and work beautifully together. I think this will be released at the end of the month, but don't quote me on that. The set retails for $20 and, as always, is a great deal.

ACK. This is definitely the nicest one I've seen yet, and the pics of it in the magalog DO NOT do it justice at all.

I like Avon cosmetics very much I didn't expect to find so much good articles about it here.

Thanks for the article. I heard a lot about highly pigmented shadows but never tried them before. What are your suggestions or recommendations? Your opinion is important for me! My co-workers are qualified paper writers who buy only original cosmetics.
