Giorgio Armani Beauty Maestro Mascara Giveaway Contest

Inspired by Mr. Armani’s perception of the “couture eye,” Maestro Mascara ($28) seeks to draw attention to the eye by extending and adding volume to the lashes. Maestro’s patented applicator recreates a sumptuous volumized eye look, instantly sculpting lashes with utmost precision. Comprised of four combs and 30 teeth for heightened volume and perfect lash separation, Maestro creates a professional and mesmerizing eyelash look.

Some of its features?
  • Patented volumizing and separating lash applicator
  • Enriched with honeybee, jojoba, and carnauba waxes
  • Coats evenly with one stroke
I have four (yes, four!) Maestro Mascaras to give away, courtesy of the generous and talented Armani Beauty Team at Saks Fifth Avenue in Chevy Chase, Maryland. They take incredibly good care of Best Things in Beauty readers! Two of the mascaras are black, and two are brown.

Want va-va-voom lashes? All you have to do to enter to win one of the four is comment here, telling us why you would like to win and your first choice of color (unfortunately, no guarantees you will win your first choice).

After you comment, e-mail bestthingsinbeautycontests@gmail.com and identify your comment. You can never be too careful about sharing your e-mail address on a blog, so I would follow this second step if I were you (or code your e-mail, e.g., myname at gmail dot com, in your comment). The deadline for entries will be midnight March 27. I will use a random number generator to select the four winners.

I will be posting this contest at Free!Grechen too. Good Luck!

I'd love to win because I haven't found my ideal mascara and I haven't really tried a high end mascara! I prefer the black one. :)

Liz said...

I would love to win, because none of the stores in my city carry Armani beauty & I would love to try it!

Black is my preference.

Hi! I would just like to try it - Armani has such high quality makeup that I'm sure this mascara is great too. I'd prefer black too, but brown works on my coloring too.

Thanks for the contest!

I am a HUGE HUGE Armani fan - Tim Quinn is amazing. I love this mascara and Eyes to Kill is good also.

Jules said...

I would love to win because I have been searching for the perfect mascara forever, and this sounds like it might be it! :)

Vanessa S said...

I would love to win because sometimes, I do not feel like applying false lashes to attain a certain look. Thank you for the giveaway!!

I would love to win Maestro Mascara in black, but brown would be fine since my hair is blondish. :) Would love to have a mascara that does coat in one stroke, also because I know you are suppose to get new mascara at least every 3 months to help prevent eye infections.

J-Ezzy said...

I would love to win to try out Giorgio Armani beauty for the first time! I would prefer the black one :)

MarciaF said...

I've heard nothing but raves about Armani mascara so I'd love to be part of this giveaway. I'd need the black if I got lucky enough.

Huguette E. said...

As I get older my lashes don't look as nice. This sounds like a great mascara to help. My first choice would be black, thanks!

Anna said...

I am loving the Armani Crema Nera you generously sent to me! I don't have many wrinkles really but this cream works great overnight and my small forehead lines are much smaller now :) Since I am having a great experience with Armani skincare I would love to try mascara as well :) I prefer the darkest shade of black available.

Eve said...

I would love to win because I still have not found the perfect mascara for me and this would be a great chance to try one out. I prefer black.

Like you I also "live for" Armani beauty products. I have never been disappointed with any that I have tried. I would love to add this to my collection!!

Lexi said...

Hi - I would really love to win Armani Maestro Mascara in black (or brown because I have never tried it!). I would love to win because I have tried Eyes to Kill and I love it... so I'm sure Maestro is just as fabulous!

Thank you Loyd and the rest of the Armani Saks team for the giveaways!

Elisabeth said...

Im always told my eyes are my best feature so I would love to win! Black please!!

DG said...

I'd love to win this because mascara is what gives me that oomph of confidence. I don't get complimented too much but when I put on mascara my lashes say here I am bold and ready and people always say nice things about them :) And such a high end gorgeous mascara would work magic beyond belief!

I choose it in black

STYLEEZTA said...

Black would be cool! I would love to win because I still haven't found the right mascara so would love to try this :D

I love mascara but have yet to find my dream mascara. Hope this will be it! I would love it in black. Thanks!

OMG! I REALLY want to try this mascara - I think I;ve got as many mascaras in my make-up bag as lip glosses/balms (well, almost!), I see the ads, think it will do what they say, and then ;-( what a let-down! Sure would love this - looking for something that will still be on my lashes after a couple of hrs -- as a working Nurse (with Pediatric patients) I don't have time to re-apply several times dly. Thanks for the chance to win - love to try the Brpwn!

I'm like every other woman: still hunting for the elusive perfect mascara. I'd love to win one in black, because unlike Armani's Maestro mascara("Comprised of four combs and 30 teeth")I have about 4 lashes and 30 mascaras, none of which work.

Hi! I prefer the black mascara.

I would love to win this mascara because I do have longish curly lashes naturally but the volume is killing it :(
They look invisible without mascara but most of my mascara isn't such great quality and I often catch my lashes looking unnatural and brittle.

I think this sounds like a great remedy for a mascara-holic like me!

Vittoria said...

I'd love to try this not because my lashes are too short (they're not that short) they're just the shortest in my family! I'm always getting grief about my eyelashes...but it's just because I can't compete with everyone else and their super thick, long lashes. This might swing things in my favor though! I've never tried a fancy mascara.

I'd choose the black...my hair and eyes are super dark!

thanks xx

newskepticxo said...

I'd love too try this because not only are my lashes short, every mascara seems to darken but not lengthen them in any way even the Diorshow Mascara.

I'd prefer black =]

Tamika said...

I would like to win this mascara because I am a makeup junkie and I absolutely love the natural ingredients used in the formulation. I would love a mascara in black.

Abby said...

I don't have a single mascara as shocking as it sounds. I would like to try to open up my glasses-wearing eyes. So this is a great chance to try a branded mascara. I'd love to try black please.

Thanks!

I'd like to win the black one. Looking for a good mascara and this may be my first high end brand!

I'd love to win because I love mascara-- my must-have product after lip balm/gloss/whatever (which is for physical comfort as much as looks).
My eyes are small and deep-set: a great mascara widens and defines them like nothing else!

And yet, a great mascara is hard to find! Diorshow is awesome but both expensive and unfortunately, irritating.
Awesome eyelashes + watery, red eyes = bad.
Drugstore brands have been hit-or-miss in terms of quality and my own reaction to them. Sometimes it seems like only the clumpy or watery ones don't bug my eyes...I worry about shelling out for a high-end product which might now work for me.

I have an armani blush (*love*) and in general love the quality of their stuff--would so love an opportunity to use this mascara!

Anne-Marie T said...

I would love to win this because my budget only allows me to purchase the less expensive drug store brands. It would feel so wonderful to be wearing some Giorgio Armani mascara !
I would prefer black.

I prefer the brown.
I would like to win this because my eyelashses look stubby and thin.
I've tried different mascaras without results.
