New Sephora Items

Benefit Eye Bright. This is a product that is nice to have on hand but not a necessity. I haven't used this every day since I purchased it and I've noticed that the days I do take the time to use it I look much more "awake". I like to apply it to the inner corner of my eyes and just underneath my brow arch and pat it in with my finger - its a trick that makeup artist have used for decades and I'm definitely a convert. Today I didn't wear any eye product other than this and mascara.
Smashbox Camera Ready Concealer Stick. I bought this after I hated the Benefit Boing Concealer and I really like it. This concealer is great for lightening and brightening the undereye area but it probably isn't the best choice for blemishes. I also like to use it for the tiny bit of redness I sometimes get around my nose and it completely covers the area while "brightening" the skin. This probably will not be my HG concealer but I'll use the whole tube...I do love it for undereye circles.
Marc Jacobs Daisy (I bought the rollerball to keep in my purse). LOVE LOVE LOVE. This is my new daytime scent. I'm currently on the final few days of my Stella Sheer fragrance (I've been wearing it nearly a year) and I wanted to try something new. Not to mention some of the traveling I've been doing lately, I really didn't want a big clunky perfume bottle to carry around. I probably will ask for the full size bottle for Christmas - the scent is clean and feminine without being "too much" for my job in healthcare.
Lancome Flash Bronzer Anti Age. The jury is still out on this product. I've been using it at night to give me a glow in the morning...I really don't like the instant bronzer in it because it makes my face look "dirty" but I love the color the self tanner gives me in the mornings. One pump does my face and neck and it's 100% less damaging than a sun tan. I'd say it's worth trying and Lancome will let you return it for store credit if you don't like it. I'll probably use this bottle as the "glow" is perfect for fall and winter but eventually I want to try Clarins Self Tanning Milk because I've read such good reviews on it.
