New Stuff I Might Like… Clinique High Lengths Mascara and more!

I’ve been sick in bed, and thank my lucky stars I have a job where I can actually work FROM my bed. Yay! Pillows propped up, laptop perched on my lap.. love it, don’t love the coughing and sneezing and aches.  Not only am I sick, but I received contact dermatitis from QuikSpray hand sanitizer, which contains 65% Ethyl Alcohol.. so my hands are burning to go along with everything else. To make me feel happy, I went on the Sephora website and discovered some new goodies I might try. I did a huge favor for a friend, and she is going to give me a bunch of makeup in return, so I’ll have a lot of reviews to do!!! Oh, Excitement!

Clinique High Lengths Mascara

You know me and my comb wand mascara obsession, right? (R.I.P Maybelline Lash Stylist) Well, thanks to Clinque, a new one has been born. Clinique High Lengths Macara ($14) is here! I’ve never been a fan of the Clinque mascara formula, it was always too watery. Ya never know, though, they could have reformulated… I can’t resist the comb wand!

Benefit Sugarbomb

I might be losing my mind to this cold, but are there too many colors in this boxed blush / highlighter thingy? This is Benefit Cosmetic’s new Sugarbomb. ($28) I see rose, peach, plum and pink, it looks fun, I dunno! I want to try it.

Now this.. I like A LOT:
