New and Notable from Shoppers Drug Mart - L'Oréal, Lise Watier and Marcelle

L'Oréal Collagen Micro-Pulse - 15ml - $36.99 - A new 2 step eye treatment - step 1 - anti-wrinkle + dark circle cream and step 2 - anti-bag + puffiness micro-pulse massage - It gets rid of wrinkles, bags and dark circles, it vibrates, what's not to like about this product?!  I've been hearing buzz (ha ha) about this product for awhile now so I was excited to see that it finally made its way to us!  It's cleverly designed - the bottom part contains the eye treatment which contains Erasyl to help minimize the appearance of dark circles and Collagen to help smooth away under eye wrinkles and crows feet., you just unscrew it from the blue part to reveal the opening to squeeze out your cream and apply.  The top part is the micro-pulse massager - a flick of the switch activates 130 micro-vibrations per second that will automatically reduce the stagnant fluids trapped in the under-eye tissues causing dark circles and bags.

Did it work?  My issue is with bags - especially those mornings when sleep eluded me the night before - and it was awesome for this!  The massaging action really did seem to make the bags disappear right before (under) my eyes!  Another trick I discovered was to put the massaging half in the fridge for 10 minutes before using, it really cools down the metal and makes it feel wonderful!
Lise Watier 3-in-1 Miracle Primer - 20ml - $ - Think your current primer doesn't work hard enough?  You are probably right - Lise Watier's new primer gives you 2 formulas with 3 actions all in one handy product, see what a slacker your current one is being?!  There are 2 formulas to wear either alone or blended together.  A translucent primer, enriched with vitamins A & C, that instantly matifies and corrects skin by minimizing the appearance of pores and fine lines and a tinted base to correct and illuminate the complexion which comes in 3 shades, infused with Diamond Lumiere Complex for a custom glow:  Banane - for fair to medium complexions with pink undertones - illuminates the complexion and neutralizes minor redness; Abricot - for medium to dark skin tones - sweeps away dull complexions and instantly restores a healthy glow.  Ideal to enhance tanned complexions; and Rose Lilas - for olive and Asian complexions - restores freshness to tired complexions and corrects yellow tones.  All are paraben, fragrance and oil free.

Marcelle Rouge Xpression Lipstick - 11.95 - in 12 colours: sincerity, delirium, passion, sentimental, delight, euphoria, obsession, revolution, enchantment, exuberance, sensation, provocative - are super pigmented and contain avocado oil for moisture, Vitamins C & E for their antioxidant properties and Maxi-Lip, an oligopeptide complex which delivers a plumping effect on the lips, reduces furrows, improves general skin texture and contributes to achieve a better lip contour definition and plumping effect when used daily.
2 in 1 Retractable Plumping Lipliner - $10.95 -in 6 colours: natural, perfect nude, cinnamon, nude attitude, rose velours, cool berry - this clever little products has a liner on one end and a lip brush and sharpener on the other!  I love that this pencil is retractable, sometimes with this type you can turn it up, but not back down again.  It's got the same good stuff and benefits in it that the lipstick above does!
