New and Notable from Shoppers Drug Mart - Physicians Formula, Chanel, Rimmel and Puma

Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Gel Cream Liner - $12.99 - for green, hazel, blue or brown eyes - if you like a gel liner but don't have big bucks to fork out, there haven't been a lot of choices for you - until now! They've had this in the US for awhile and it's finally made it's way here!  Worth the wait?  Well they are certainly super cute, they come in little pots that can be snapped together and apart - you can buy the corresponding set for your eye colour or just buy the colour that amuses you!  The formula is water-resistant, mudge-proof and 24-hour wear.  Here's the colours in the sets:  Green eyes - leaf green with green micro glitter, shimmery violet with violet micro glitter and black with green sparkles; Hazel eyes - taupe with multi-colour shimmer, pinky mauve with multi-colour micro glitter and black with pink sparkles; Blue eyes - shimmery blue with blue micro glitter, coppery brown and black with blue sparkles; and Brown eyes - matte dark brown, shimmery purple and black with purple micro glitter.  I tend to be a total spaz when it comes to liners which is why I always use a pencil liner but these seemed a little more user friendly then liquid liners.  The consistency is nice, the pigmentation is good and I didn't find they smeared the way some cream liners do.  I have heard some people say that they use these on their waterline and they stay - I'm not quite brave enough to try that one, so I'm just going to take their word for it!
Also available in the line is the Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Mascara Duos - $12.99 - for green, hazel, blue or brown eyes. - each one has a black and eye brightening shade:  Green eyes - black with blue pear + bright blue, Hazel eyes - black with pink pearl + bright pink, Blue Eyes - black with blue pearl + bright blue, Brown eyes - black with purple pearl + bright purple

Bleu de Chanel for Men - 50ml EDT - $59, 100ml EDT - $86 - with top notes of grapefruit, peppermint, pink pepper, nutmeg and ginger; a heart of dry cedar and jasmine and bottom notes of vetiver, patchouli and frankincense this new fragrance for Chanel smells fresh, sporty and a little sexy.  I also really like the bottle - I would buy this for my husband (or boyfriend, shhh, don't tell my husband).  You might recall that Christelle posted the trailer for this fragrances commercial - when a fragrance has a trailer, you know it has to be good!  You can check it out here if you missed it - Bleu de Chanel Trailer

Rimmel  Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation - 30ml - $10.99 - comes in 9 colours.  You may recall that Rimmel already had a foundation called Lasting Finish and it looks like it has been  reformulated to up the lasting ante from 16 to 25 hours.  The lightest colour seems like it might work for me so I should give this a try and check out the staying power.  Of course this leaves me to wonder why someone would need their foundation to last 25 hours - should you not be washing your face at night anyhow?!  These crazy cosmetic companies!

Puma Animagical for Men and Women - 60ml EDT - $35 - Animagical Man - an aromatic green fruity scent featuring African Kei Apple, grapefruit, cardamom, rosemary, pineapple and ironwood.  Animagical Woman - a fruity floral woods with pink grapefruit, lime papaya, freesia, water lily, chocolate and tamboti wood.  Puma always seems to know how to make great scents at a low price point and these are no exception - the mens might even be my favourite Puma scent ever!  The womens is a little too floral for my taste but not overpoweringly so - I wouldn't buy it, but if someone gave it to me, I wouldn't be offended!
