Newbies and Freebies

Since I blog about makeup as much as humanly possible (for me, anyway), I've signed up for emails from almost every cosmetics company in the world! Every day I get email after email from companies hawking their new products and latest promotions. Here are a few to check out:
  • Bad Girl Blue from Benefit: Benefit's blue mascara has hit the market--hard. Everywhere I look, I see store displays and print ads touting the benefits (sorry for the pun) of blue mascara. This blue baby is designed to make eyes look brighter and whiter for $19. I haven't tried it yet, and I honestly don't think I will. I love my blacker than black mascara, but if someone were to give me a free tube, sure--I'd give it a go. If you buy this online from Benefit, you can get free shipping in the US with promo code BGALBLUE (you have until Tuesday to get free shipping, so hurry and make your purchase!)
  • Projectionist from Estee Lauder: Yet another new mascara on the market! This one claims to give you thicker, longer, more defined lashes. Estee Lauder is giving away this mascara (along with a bunch of other great eye related products) when you spend $35 and enter one of the correct codes when you check out. The codes are eyes1, eyes2, eyes3, or eyes4. Click here for more info about this offer--its a pretty good one. (I'm a sucker for freebies!)
  • Lancome Play Game: If you spend $26.50 on Lancome products (either at Macy's or online), you get a free bag full of samples. If you order online and spend over $50, enter promo code LANCOMEFS for free, upgraded shipping.
Go out there and get shopping--and try a new product while you're at it!

I haven't tried it out yet, and, to be totally honest, I'm not that eager to give it a go. I get a little freaked out by colored mascara. Thanks for your impressions of it! I may give this one a miss (unless I get a free sample or something!)
