Armani Beauty Maestro Mascara Giveaway Contest Winners

We have four lucky winners, and all (well almost all) have been notified by e-mail.

Congratulations to Kathy (brown mascara), Bunny B (black), Mim (brown), and Liz (black)! You'll have Armani lashes soon - and a few samples too. I have sent each of you an e-mail requesting your address. Except - Kathy, do I have your e-mail? It may be the early morning "thing," but I can't find it. Would you open your Blogger profile to me?

All the entries were interesting! As usual, I wish I could send a mascara to everyone who entered. Some of you are such faithful readers - thank you. Random.org selected the four winners. I would never be able to choose.

Here are a few eyelash tips. Anyone who wants longer or fuller lashes should try Lash Allure MD, a new prostaglandin-free lash-enhancing product. Watch their Web site for sales. You can even win one there. There are other new products, such as RapidLash, in this exciting new category. Want a great mascara at a drugstore price? I still think Maybelline Define-A-Lash is the best on the market. It comes in several different formulations, and all are noteworthy. And there are so many Maybellilne BOGOs that you will be able to buy two for about $8! Have straight lashes? Eyelash curlers really work! Make sure to buy a good one, keep it clean, and be careful when using it. Apply your mascara after you curl your lashes. Finally, always - without fail - remove your mascara before you go to bed. Sleeping in mascara can damage your lashes.

We owe this contest to the incredibly generous Armani Beauty Team at Saks Fifth Avenue in Chevy Chase, Maryland. If you live anywhere near DC, please swing by and say tell Loyd and the gang that you "know all about them." If you want to try Armani products but need help, feel free to give them a call at (240) 497-5206. Tell them Best Things in Beauty sent you. You'll get an expert consultation by phone.

We jump-started a new giveaway contest on Friday. One lucky winner will receive a whole set of Gillette Venus products to help her go bare for summer. Have you entered yet? So far, I only see four entries. I'm amazed. I'll be reviewing these fab Gillette products early this week. A set for the winner and a set for me arrived via FedEx. Think about it: A moisturizer you can use in the shower and no slathering needed after you finish!

To all of you, my love and thanks for reading Best Things in Beauty - and subscribing! I really appreciate all of your kind e-mail messages. I started this "labor of passion" last summer, and now I'm hooked. You make the difference!

Thank you!! I just sent you an email. I'm so excited!

Liz said...

Thank you! I'm looking forward to trying Armani Beauty.

It's funny that you mention Maybelline Define-a-Lash as a great drugstore mascara because I have been really impressed by the recent quality of Maybelline's makeup in general. Lash Stiletto is just marvelous, and I recently tried their new ColorSensational lipsticks and was really impressed. I think they are comparable to MAC!

I agree, Liz. I like Stiletto too! Just don't bother with that new Shine Sensational Lip Gloss. [wink] I gave mine away this morning.

Great prices on Maybelline too!

Congratulations to you, Kathy, Mim, and Bunny!

Of all the drugstore mascaras Maybelline Define-a-Lash is my favorite. And I've had great success with RapidLash. I never thought I could have real eyelashes so it's miraculous to me.

Glad to hear RapidLash is working, Marcia! Nice to hear first-hand info.

Thanks!
