1. Lancome L'Extreme Mascara ($28CAD) - claims to give extra length to your lashes. I found that the product gave a clean coverage, with no clumping, but I did not notice a huge lengthening effect. The product did not irritate my eyes, and removed easily. Conclusion: Thumbs down for the price; nothing special here. Save your money for a nice Chinese food dinner.
2. *new* The Body Shop Eye Colour #26 - ($13.50 CAD $9.50 US) This product is part of a new fall launch at the Body Shop which features a lot of new cosmetics. This is a creamy powder that has great staying powder. Love it! Go into your local Body Shop and check-out all the new stuff. Also available online.

If you like Clinique's Aromatics Elixir, you'll want to check out its new incarnation, Velvet Sheer. It is a lighter, more floral version of its predecessor, and contains top notes of Bulgarian rose, chamomile. It still has that unmistakable Elixir chypre essence, though just not nearly as heady and heavy as the original.
This perfume is available only in a silky, almost gel-like liquid that glides on to the skin. The downside to this formulation is that its scent does not cling as well as the original perfume. The smell actually reminds me a bit of Baby Magic, too. ($35US or $44.50CAD for 1.5 fl. oz./45 ml)
If you are one of the few that does enjoy Aromatics Elixir, check out Lush's line of Ginger products. Their Ginger Fragrance is in the same fragrance family as Clinique's Elixir, and contains oils of ginger, ylang ylang, jasmine and mimosa. The Ginger Fragrance has a rather steep price tag for a product that comes from a bath shop, around $60US/$70CAD; almost twice as much as their well-known Karma perfume. For a cheaper thrill, buy the Ginger Bomb, which has the same scent as the perfume, for a much lower price ($3.95).
