Mark Review - "Get a Tint" tinted moisturizer

Summer is coming up and I know the one thing I am dreading is having my makeup, particularly my foundation, sweat off my face.  That is wear tinted moisturizer comes in.  Mark's tinted moisturizer is lightweight, oil-free, and goes on your face evenly.  It really gives you the appearance of a summer-y glow without spending hours in the sun.  The best part?  You can't sweat it off like powder and it has an SPF 15!  I use this tinted moisturizer whenever I'm feeling pale (which is, like, everyday) and I always get so many compliments and questions about what I am wearing!  I highly recommend this product because it's a quick and easy way to get a healthy glow that will last through a hot summer day.  You can buy this product through my Mark store at:



Meet Mark.

I come from a very comfortable family.  My whole life I have been lucky enough to be able to ask my parents for money and get it.. most of the time.  I have a credit card and a debit card.  My parents pay for gas (on the credit card) but I pay for mostly everything else on my debit.  The money on my debit is from my past summer job and various babysitting jobs.  However, I currenly have an embarrassingly low amount of money on my debit card right now so what do I do?  I tap into my über-secret backup money plan.
         For those of you who don’t know what Mark Cosmetics is, it is a beauty brand that sells makeup, clothes, accessories, and shoes.  Last November I became a Mark Representative, which means that I am able to sell makeup to other people and get 30% of my sales.  Sounds easy, right?  All I have to do is talk to a couple of friends and family members, play up my charm and selling talent, and the orders will start piling in, right? Wrong.  I’m a very shy and quiet person and I’ve had a hard time selling the products because most of the people I try to sell them to are broke, like myself. What to do what to do?
         Since I kind of started this blog on a whim in hopes of trying something new and putting myself out there, maybe I’ll keep with that idea and put myself out there to start selling more Mark products.  I’ll use Twitter and this blog to reach out to other makeup lovers and get them to buy Mark products.  Starting now I will set a goal for myself to sell $100 worth of Mark products by my birthday, June 5th.  Wish me luck and make sure to keep checking in to see if I follow through with this!

Check out my Mark store, and I'll be posting reviews on all of the products!

Hello and Welcome

"A smile is the universal welcome."
*insert smile*

HI! I'm Kristen and I'm a 17-year-old senior in high school.  My home for the past ten years has been in the Main Line suburbs of Philly.  Before that I lived in a couple other states but that's not important.  What is important is that I am going to COLLEGE next year! And this blog is meant to (humorously) document my c0ll3g3 l!f3 (okay I am never doing that again) and give tips and tricks to other college girls.  Oh and that quote up there was the first thing that popped up when I googled "welcome quotes."  Anyway, I still don't know where I'm going to college next year and I'll probably make my decision on the last day possible.

Anyway, if you would like to know some things about me, here is a random list:
- I love playing tennis
- I spend the majority of my time on my computer
- I could not live without makeup, beauty stuff, and fashion
- I'm very up-to-date on all celebrity gossip
- I think I'm really funny
- I love reading

Okay sorry that wasn't a very good list but I swear I'm not boring! Once I start posting on here I guarantee that you'll love me !  Come back soon!
