Maybelline Stiletto Lash Mascara GIVEAWAY!

Eric and I had such a fun day together. It felt really nice to share an activity. As I mentioned in my previous FAQ post, I have been trying to find ways to help Eric enjoy exercise again.

So today I told him I would try mountain biking with him because I know that he enjoys biking a lot. I think he was quite happy to be doing it too! :) It was a fun way to spend time together in a healthy way. I told him that I would go every weekend this summer with him if he wants to! I am just happy to see him being active.

Despite the cold weather today, it was gloriously sunny and beautiful. We bundled up and once we got warmed up we were fine.

Here is a fun little video I put together of our day today- complete with a Beach Boys theme song!

haha sorry about the random text at the end…I guess I didn’t edit that part out!

So all and all today was a fairly active day! We biked for about 1 hour and then I did about 30 minutes or so of gardening once we got home. Today was another great example of cross training! No treadmill needed. :)

I don’t know about you, but as soon as I saw the commercial for Maybelline Stiletto Lash Mascara I knew I had to try it!

I love stilettos after all.

I am constantly asked how I walk in 4” stilettos by friends and family. The truth is I don’t know how. I just love them.

I knew this mascara would be for me.


I opened it up and looked at the wand. I am a pretty good judge of how I will like the mascara when I see it.

The wand was narrow and feathered, and the mascara itself has a nice sheen to it and looked a bit glossy. I instantly knew that the mascara would probably go on with minimal clumps. I find Maybelline has always been good at this!

Before Make-up:


Notice the blonde, pale lashes!

And Voila…

After with Maybelline Stiletto Lash Mascara:


My review?

I think it is obvious that I LOVED this mascara! From the moment the brush touched the tips of my lashes I knew it was ‘the one’. I didn’t have to wipe off any excess from the brush before using. Which rarely happens for me. I had no flakes even after a long day + activity + cold winds. There were also ZERO clumps! Tonight, I tried another coat just to see what it would do, and to my amazement my lashes got even longer! I think this mascara more than doubled the length of my lashes– sans falsies!

I loved it so much that I went back to the drugstore and bought 2 more! With my luck they are going to discontinue this stuff. :)

Because I love this mascara so much, I am going to do my first ever beauty product giveaway on Oh She Glows!

That’s right, I am giving away one of my brand spanking new tubes of Maybelline Stiletto Lash Mascara (Value $12 CAD).

All you have to do is leave a comment below telling me your #1 beauty trick. Link back to this contest and you will get 2 entries! trust me, you WANT to win this mascara! It will change your life. :)

Contest open to anyone in any country!

Contest closes Wednesday at 8pm EST.

My number one beauty tip? Drink lots of water and get enough sleep. =)

I’ve been wanting to try that stuff so badly!!!


Heather April 19, 2009 at 9:44 pm

I would absolutely LOVE to try out this mascara. I have a hard time finding one that works for me, and this one sounds perfect.

One of my best tricks is to put mascara only on your top lashes. It looks totally natural and doesn’t cause any smearing.

I linked back to this post on my own blog!


Anou April 19, 2009 at 9:46 pm

I mix tinted moisturizer with my regular moisturizer and apply it to damp skin. I find it gives me that natural glow and doesnt feel heavy like foundation. This mascara looks amazing I hope I win lol !


*Andrea* April 19, 2009 at 9:46 pm

ah i would love to try this mascara! it looks fabulous on you – what a difference it makes! (although you look beautiful before too ;)

my best tricks is to put a light colored shadow/white-nude in the arch of my eyebrows for a defined shape


Michelle Hisae April 19, 2009 at 9:52 pm

WOW that mascara worked it’s magic!! Hmm…my best advice would be:

Use toner! It wipes off the excess dirt that you don’t get when washing your face. It’s amazing how powerful toner is!


Steph April 19, 2009 at 9:53 pm

I love the way that mascara makes you look! I also have light hair and fair skin, so I’m very excited about this product. One of my favorite beauty tricks is to put a little bit of light eyeshadow that has a sheen to it on the inner corners of my eyes. Instantly makes me look awake!


ashley April 19, 2009 at 9:55 pm

I would love to try this stuff! i have such a problem with clumps and mascara “flaking” off throughout the day…ugh!
My beauty trick is dabbing toothpaste on blemishes before bedtime..and by morning, its all dried up and not a blemish in sight!


Lindsey (Mrs. LC) April 19, 2009 at 10:03 pm

Sign me up, I’d love to try this mascara after your rave review! Maybelline should pay you to advertise for their company. :)


Katy G. April 19, 2009 at 10:04 pm

My best feature is my smile…so brush and floss daily if not twice daily!


Maggie April 19, 2009 at 10:04 pm

The mascara looks AMAZING!!! I love how your lashes look right after it.

My number 1 beauty trick? Doing whatever it takes to be CONFIDENT … for some reason when I am confident, everybody tells me that I look great!


amelia April 19, 2009 at 10:05 pm

I am always looking for a great mascara that lengthens without clumping..this looks great!
One of my beauty tricks is to use a bright blue eyeshadow along my lash line where you would put eyeliner. It looks darker than you would think but makes my blue eyes really stand out.


nicole April 19, 2009 at 10:05 pm

My best beauty tip? Be yourself and laugh a lot. I think that true beauty shines through best with a good laugh.


Kris April 19, 2009 at 10:07 pm

My best beauty trick….a SMILE! :)


Lindsey (Mrs. LC) April 19, 2009 at 10:07 pm

Hey, I just linked back:


s. April 19, 2009 at 10:08 pm

haha, mine is sleeping. gets rid of the undereye circles. :)


Sam April 19, 2009 at 10:08 pm

My best beauty tip is to use cherry chapstick as a blush. It gives a more natural glow and brightens the face.

I hope I win that mascara! :)


gliding calm April 19, 2009 at 10:13 pm

number one beauty trick? hmmm don’t over-do anything. Cakey= gross! and I am linking back to this in my next post!


Sally April 19, 2009 at 10:14 pm

I’m glad you went biking today :) It’s always fun to do something out of the ordinary every once in a while… or not even have an ordinary and switch things up all the time!


VeggieGirl April 19, 2009 at 10:20 pm

#1 beauty trick = olive oil-based cleanser.


Erin April 19, 2009 at 10:23 pm

Burts Bees Toner at night. Makes my skin radiate


Sana April 19, 2009 at 10:24 pm

Wow!!! That looks amazing!!!! For some extra glow I like to dab a bit of Vaseline on my eye lids.


Gillian April 19, 2009 at 10:24 pm

My best trick would be using white sugar as a face and body exfoliater! Works better than any branded one I’ve tried!


Mara @ What's For Dinner? April 19, 2009 at 10:30 pm

Honestly?? Lots of water, a gentle cleanser, and NOT wearing base every day. I may have to just buy that mascara ;)


AGS April 19, 2009 at 10:35 pm

So funny you had this post. I was just thinking this today. The best tip came from my Mom right when I was hitting my teens. She said “Don’t strive to be thin. Strive to be beautiful. You’re much more likely to succeed.” That’s it: it’s a resolution for me many more days than any particular trick. (Thanks, Mom!)


Ashley April 19, 2009 at 10:40 pm

That mascara looks awesome!

My best beauty trick has been taking fish oil! It has dramatically improved my hair and nails :)


TanyaS April 19, 2009 at 10:48 pm

I have to ditto the beauty trick of a smile. Even if you have laugh lines, a smile brightens your face and provides in instant natural beauty.


e. April 19, 2009 at 10:53 pm

My best beauty trick is not to wear makeup every day! I suffer from adult acne and wearing makeup just made the cycle worse. My skin isn’t perfect since I quit wearing makeup, but it’s a lot better.

Also, I increased my water for 64 oz to 96 oz and that’s helped a lot too. Fancy beauty tricks eh??


Alice April 19, 2009 at 10:54 pm

I would definately like to try it! I am in desperate need to try a mascara that does not leave me looking like a racoon by the end of the day.
My beauty trick is one that I got from my nana, drink lots of water and wash my face day and night with only warm water and apply Oil of Olay to keep it smooth.


Jess M April 19, 2009 at 11:06 pm

Thanks for the giveaway opportunity! My number one beauty trick is to continue my eyeliner slightly past the end of my eyelid on my top outer eyelids. This makes my eyelashes appear to be longer on the outside corners and my eyes to stand out.


Milca April 19, 2009 at 11:07 pm

Best thing ever is the Clear Improvement mask by Origins. Makes your skin clearer, brighter and beautiful within minutes after use. It’s amazing.


Caitlin April 19, 2009 at 11:11 pm

Oh, I’ve seen the commercials and I would love to try this! Mine might not be a beauty trick necessarily, and I can’t remember who taught me it, but if I take a bathroom break in the middle of the day and I look a little pale, I always pinch my cheeks. Sounds kind of funny, but it gives a blushed look that lasts for awhile and wakes up my face.


Emily April 19, 2009 at 11:19 pm

Oh wow that looks great! So pretty! My best tip? Well, I live in a dry climate, so I put a thin layer of lotion on before putting on my concealer and make-up! Makes your skin smooth and the make-up goes on much better!


Katie April 19, 2009 at 11:37 pm

A+D diaper ointment for dry skin. I know it’s weird, but nothing is better!


Priyanka April 19, 2009 at 11:45 pm

I would love to have that Mascara! My # 1 beauty trick sleep and cucumber juice under my eyes, I am prone to dark circles!


Amy April 19, 2009 at 11:48 pm

I put on tinted moisturizer (with SPF! always!) before my foundation. I saw a woman on Oprah once who was in her 70s and looked liked she was in her 40s, no joke. She said her secret was, “Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!!” Every since then, I’ve been a moisturizing monster! I put it on two to three times a day, and it gives me a healthy glow along with sun protection. Plus it helps the foundation stick better, I think. :)


Ellen April 19, 2009 at 11:49 pm

I use Aquaphor to moisturize around my eyes! Extremely moisturizing without clogging pores and couldn’t be nicer for sensitive skin. I’d love to try this mascara, but only if it doesn’t have Propylene Glycol– I’m allergic to the nasty stuff!


Libby April 19, 2009 at 11:59 pm

Loved your video and that mascara does work wonders. I have blond eyelashes so get them tinted but it would be great to add some length like that. I would love to win some in case I can’t find it in Australia.



Stephanie April 20, 2009 at 12:07 am

Dove soap. The original kind. Always.


steph April 20, 2009 at 12:07 am

mascara is looking good!! I have teeny tiny lashes, I wonder if they would help.

my favorite beauty secret is Clean and Clear oil blotting sheets. They are very transportable and will wipe off the mid-day shine without disturbing your makeup


Tasha April 20, 2009 at 12:08 am

Actually I have been wanting to try that mascara. I’m a new reader by the way, and haven’t quite started my own blog yet. My beauty trick is honestly just drinking lots of water and using moisturizer on my face once a day. I even wash my face with water during my showers. But I don’t wear face makeup either. My skin is pretty soft and I RARELY get pimples, so it works for me!


lora April 20, 2009 at 12:13 am

beauty trick is….vaseline is a great eye makeup remover and moisturizer…no bags on these eyes!


lora April 20, 2009 at 12:13 am

linked back!


junghwa April 20, 2009 at 12:20 am

awesome giveaway! thank you!


jayme April 20, 2009 at 12:21 am

That mascara looks awesome!


JK April 20, 2009 at 12:22 am

I would love to try that mascara. It definitely brings out your eyes.


June April 20, 2009 at 12:22 am

Thank you so much for the giveaway.


hyang April 20, 2009 at 12:22 am

I absolutely love hiking.
The giveaway is awesome!


Wiggs (The Beholder) April 20, 2009 at 12:28 am

Eeeeeeeeek stay away from the snaaaaaakes!!! My best beauty trick is putting shimmery, white eyeshadow directly under my brows. You can see what I mean if you go to my blog and search for “Eyeshadow brushes and how to do Wiggs-style eyeliner” (I know you can’t have links in your comments or I’d just put the link!)


Lindsay April 20, 2009 at 12:53 am

my go-to beauty trick is that I get my brows waxed religiously every two weeks or so! I am always getting compliments!


Jenn (eating bender) April 20, 2009 at 12:56 am

You look gorgeous with or without makeup :) And I’m not just saying that to get an extra chance to win, haha!

My #1 beauty trick is Chapstick! The cherry version – I love the way it gives just a hint of color. It’s my favorite shade, and it’s darn cheap!


Kendall April 20, 2009 at 1:00 am

Smiling! It brightens my face, no matter what.


Mona April 20, 2009 at 1:17 am

I put a small dab of bright highlight eyeshadow on the inside corners of my eyes, makes me look younger and bright eyed.


Maggie April 20, 2009 at 1:21 am

The mascara looks amazing- your lashes look great :). My beauty secret is my daily moisturizer, and to not stress out when I don’t feel so hot, and just go with the flow and smile!


Run Sarah April 20, 2009 at 1:22 am

I curl my lashes before putting mascara on, it gives a template for the mascara and prevents breakage!


Tyler (Raspberry Runner) April 20, 2009 at 1:47 am

my #1 tip is using vaseline as eye make up remover. it works, and its cheap!!


carolinebee April 20, 2009 at 1:52 am

SO pretty :D My fave maybelline mascara is the pink/green container one, great lash maybe, it’s SO good! I put $$ moisturizer under my eyes every night, i can’t tell any difference as of yet but hopefully it will pay off :)


Leah @ Simply Fabulous Now April 20, 2009 at 3:14 am

Exfoliate!! Definitely! Body, it all!


Anne P April 20, 2009 at 4:23 am

my number one beauty trick is a little powder bronzer. does such a good job subtly brightening up the face! also, drinking lots of water is key :)


Lisa April 20, 2009 at 5:34 am

A little bit of gold eyeliner under your eyes makes you look more awake and refreshed!


haya (living and learning) April 20, 2009 at 5:44 am

i am addicted to exfoliation! and also menthol-containing face washes (i use clean and clear). it feels super refreshing and it gives you a glow. plus obviously exercise.


Debbie April 20, 2009 at 6:42 am

My beauty trick is less is more. I keep my routine simple so that I can spend time doing other things with my life like spending time with my husband.


blackkitt April 20, 2009 at 6:49 am

I love glossy lips, but instead of buying lots of different colors, I brush my lips with blush (usually the same one I’m using on my cheeks that day), then apply a bit of clear gloss. You get a beautiful sheer color that lasts.


Chaley April 20, 2009 at 6:53 am

I love the look of that mascara. I too have blonde eyelashes.

I have few tried and true beauty tricks. The most important is getting enough sleep. It is also important not to stress. It will age you sooner than anything else. Moisturizer is also important.

Thanks for the give away!


Katrina (gluten free gidget) April 20, 2009 at 6:55 am

I can not live without blush! Just a little bit goes so far. I use it on my cheeks, temples, and eyelids! Oh, BTW, I am going to link back to you on my blog when I get the chance tonight.


Katrina (gluten free gidget) April 20, 2009 at 7:05 am

I had time this AM, so I linked you to my blog!


Laura April 20, 2009 at 7:55 am

Ooh that mascara looks fab! Don’t think that’s out in the UK yet so I would love to win this comp! My number 1 beauty tip is heating up my eyelash curlers for a little bit with my hairdryer to get my eyelashers super curly, if you’re going to try this test it on some other skin before you use it on your eyes as it can get pretty hot! I’ll link this in my next blog post and let you know when I’ve done it.


Martha April 20, 2009 at 8:38 am

My beauty trick is that I never, ever go to tanning beds, and I wear SPF 50. It hasn’t paid off just yet, but by the time I’m 50, I think it will :).


Danielle J April 20, 2009 at 8:45 am

My favorite beauty trick is to put a little lotion on my eye lids before applying make up. Makes it stay all day :)


Shari April 20, 2009 at 8:48 am

My beauty tip is if you have a pimple just starting and nothing else around dab a little perfume on it. The alcohol in the perfume sometimes helps to stop the breakout.


brandi April 20, 2009 at 9:01 am

that’s awesome that you guys are biking together! My husband loves mountain biking, but I need to be on ground that is not too hilly. I am not so good on steep inclines on 2 wheels :)

best beauty trick? lots of water!


Crunchy Granola Girl April 20, 2009 at 9:11 am

My #1 Beauty Trick: Drinking LOTS of water!

Your lashes look amazing- I need to try this mascara! I put a link back to your giveaway on my blog!


Brandi C. April 20, 2009 at 9:13 am

My number one beaty trick is to drink lots of water too, as well as staying active =]
Angela, you are just too cute in that video. Glad you guys had great time together!


Amy April 20, 2009 at 9:14 am

This looks right up my ally… I currently use Lancome Hypnose Masacara, and at $27 a tube I’m always looking for a more economical product!

My tip, is to prime your eyelids for longer lasting, crease free make-up! I use either MAC Paint, or when I’m in a pinch a little foundation. Even moisturizer will work well.

Speaking of moisturizer, I use Cetaphil moisturizer for make up remover. Works like a charm!


Jaime April 20, 2009 at 9:19 am

Ohhhh…I’ve seen the commercials but I’m always so leary to try a new mascara because I’ve been burned so many times in the past. I’d love to try this!

My tip is to sponge on my light foundation as soon as my moisturizer starts to dry. It keeps the foundation smooth and translucent. Then dust with a mineral powder right away for a perfect canvas!


Jennifer April 20, 2009 at 9:24 am

I would love a clump-free mascara!!! Also, my husband is a biker and I think I might have to try mountain biking with him after seeing you try it.


Dana April 20, 2009 at 9:25 am

Love the look on your eyes! My best beauty trick…use lotion every day on my whole body after a shower. Makes my skin smooth, soft and glowing! :-)


BethAnn April 20, 2009 at 9:34 am

You and Eric are so cute! I wish I had access to a back yard in my apartment building because I would love to start a garden. Do you know anything about indoor gardening? I’ve thought about trying it for some time now.

Every once and a while I’ll put some olive oil in my hair, let it sit for about 5 minutes and then rinse it out (with shampoo obviously lol) It helps keep the shine. Also…I only really use mascara, eye shadow if I’m going out… I think using a lot of products like some of the girls here in New York do (seriously, you could scrape the foundation off their faces) covers up your natural beauty. I am what I am, I like what I am and I’d rather not cover it up! Hope that works for you =)


BethAnn April 20, 2009 at 9:36 am

oh also…I’m going to link back to this contest in my blog with my next entry


MaryBe April 20, 2009 at 9:38 am

Well, my beauty secret is kind of in competition with yours – I use Imju Fiber Wig mascara that I get from Sephora. It is “paint on false lashes”. It’s a splurge at $25 a tube, but it lasts a long time and it’s def worth it.
Love your pics and the video today! Love everyone’s beauty tips too!


Katie April 20, 2009 at 9:44 am

My best beauty trick is Vaseline–I use it on my elbows/feet at night, as lipgloss/chapstick during the day. My mother has also used this around her eyes every night for years and definitely looks younger than her age!


Sarah April 20, 2009 at 9:48 am

Thanks for the contest! My beauty “secret” is that I only wash my face once a day (in the morning). I know it might sound crazy but last year I started breaking out really badly and couldn’t get it under control, even though I was washing my face in the morning, at night and using some other products. I read somewhere that you can wash too much, so I decided to give it a shot. Now my face is completely clear and the real test will be this summer when I’m sweating a lot! :)


Leslie April 20, 2009 at 9:49 am

Green Monster everymorning for an all day glow!

I also drink lots of water, which helps!


Krista April 20, 2009 at 9:59 am

I would have to say my “trick” is to exfoliate everyday, not just once a week!


Kiky April 20, 2009 at 10:11 am

My tip is eat healthy and get plenty of sleep!


Sharon April 20, 2009 at 10:32 am

Hum, beauty trick? I would say that primer is highly essential. ;) It does wonders.


Red Head, Yellow Dog April 20, 2009 at 10:36 am

my beauty trick is using black eye shadow and a thin brush to apply eyeliner. i’ve found that it keeps my lashes and eyes healthier then using liquid or pencil liner. plus its SO easy to put on!


Jenna April 20, 2009 at 10:45 am

I love make-up so much! I would love to give this brand a try….finding a good mascara is sooo hard!


Missy Maintains April 20, 2009 at 11:22 am

My beauty trick is washing my hair in Apple Cider Vinegar once a week! It makes it so smooth and shiny!!

I just linked back :)


EL April 20, 2009 at 11:24 am

I use aquaphor on everything, dry cuticles, around my eyes, on my face when I run in the winter, the stuff is awesome!


Anneliese April 20, 2009 at 11:32 am

Wow! That mascara looks awesome!!

As for beauty tricks I drink a lot of water. I also brush, floss, and use mouthwash everyday–healthy teeth are always beautiful!


Amisha April 20, 2009 at 11:38 am

My best beauty trick is mixing a little face lotion with some foundation in my hand before applying to my face. It makes the finish so much smoother and more natural! Plus it hydrates my skin so it never looks dry or caked on. That mascara sounds awesome.


Mariposa April 20, 2009 at 11:46 am

ummmmmm.. of course i want to win! my mascara shit the bed.. i have been using a sample one from clinique.. booooo!!!!

i use a setting powder for my make up, keeps it on.. pretty much all day!


Courtney April 20, 2009 at 11:49 am

My favorite beauty trick is eating lots of Wild Salmon and Mono-unsaturated fats. I also love tinted bronzers for my face!


Amanda April 20, 2009 at 11:51 am

my biggest beauty secret (can you call this a secret?) is WATER WATER WATER!!


Susan April 20, 2009 at 12:07 pm

I LOOOOVE this mascara!!! You’re right about the no clumps and I find it makes my lashes look so long!

My biggest beauty secret is curling my eyelashes. Some people are afraid of the curling contraptions, but it makes a huge difference!


Emily April 20, 2009 at 12:12 pm

plenty of water and plenty of sleep are absolutely key! also, i always curl my lashes (my lashes are long, but they are weirdly, super straight). immediately makes my face look happier, and i feel prettier too.
i’ll link back on my brand new blog- decided i would give it a try! would love for you to visit sometime! thanks!


Jennifer April 20, 2009 at 12:15 pm

Hi! I put Vaseline on my lips every night…my hub makes fun but I always have smooth lips! Plus, I couldn’t live without my night cream by Aveeno.


Jessica April 20, 2009 at 12:17 pm

I always use sunscreen on my face, even on cloudy days, and it has kept my skin clear and youthful.


Tiffany April 20, 2009 at 12:23 pm

#1 beauty trick is to stay hydrated and avoid prolonged exposure to the sun.


Mariel April 20, 2009 at 12:26 pm


If I don’t win…I might just buy it myself! :-)

My best beauty trick is to use vaseline to remove eye make-up!


Mallory April 20, 2009 at 12:31 pm

Other than DRINK WATER!!! my favorite beauty trick is to put some kind of light shimmery eyeshadow in the inner corners of my (tiny) eyes – it really makes them seem larger and pop open!


Sarah Jayne April 20, 2009 at 12:46 pm

WOWwww is that gorgeous on you!!!

My favorite beauty trick would go perfectly with that mascara! I always WARM my eyelash curler before using it. It gives my lashes the best curl that holds all day long!


Allison April 20, 2009 at 12:54 pm

My beauty secret is putting vasaline on my heels everynight before bed, and then wearing cotton socks. I know that’s a weird tip, but icky feet-skin run in my family and running doesn’t help! This is super cheap and keeps my feet looking healthy! :)


Sara April 20, 2009 at 1:09 pm

I use vaseline to moisturize my hands and face (and elbows) every night!


Danielle April 20, 2009 at 1:26 pm

Once a week I give make a face mask using aspirin, water, and yogurt. I leave it on for an hour, then splash some water on my face and exfoliate with the little aspirin pieces. It is AMAZING!


Angie April 20, 2009 at 1:30 pm

My best beauty tip is sleep and sunscreen!

Looks like a great mascara. Love your blog!


Rachel April 20, 2009 at 1:30 pm

My Chi flat iron is my beauty secret. I already have straight hair but this smoothes out any little bumps and it lasts all day!


Joyce April 20, 2009 at 2:19 pm

#1 beauty trick is simple but drinking adequate amounts of water (and exfoliating)!!!


Amy April 20, 2009 at 2:25 pm

My number one beauty secret is Bobbi Brown Extra moisurizer w/ SPF. Its expensive but my skin is SO dry & it instantly leaves my skin feeling moist and supple all day.


Betsy April 20, 2009 at 2:29 pm

Vaseline or mentholatum for your lips! I’ve been using them my whole life.


Maddy April 20, 2009 at 2:55 pm

My #1 beauty tip is to wash your face with light scrubbing atleast once a day. My face has cleared up INCREDIBLY just from that.

Hope I get to try it =)


Tania April 20, 2009 at 3:15 pm

I have sensitive, red (a touch of rosacea), sometimes dry skin and my best beauty trick is to layer the Aveda Intensive Hydrating Mask with the Outer Peace anti-redness acne mask. That way I get soft skin and all the redness is gone! Research shows that the redness from acne is linked to the redness from rosacea. Also, sometimes I sleep with the Hydrating Mask on–it is a clear gel so doesn’t make too much of a mess. My skin is total perfection when paired with my Caudalie skincare.


ttfn300 April 20, 2009 at 3:30 pm

less is more :)


Jessica April 20, 2009 at 3:46 pm

My favorites for make-up are: a bronzer, mascara, & gloss!

Oh I’d love to have that mascara!! My number one beauty trick is to always curl your eyelashes! It makes your eyes pop and makes you look more awake!


Alison April 20, 2009 at 4:44 pm

My favorite beauty tip is a good concealer. Now if only I could find one I liked!

I linked back.


nadia April 20, 2009 at 5:33 pm

mac concealer!


Cloe April 20, 2009 at 5:49 pm

I would love to win that mascara!

My best beauty tip deals with eyelashes: when you finish putting on your mascara, use tweezers to position all your lashes individually and get rid of clumps! It works SO well!


Laura E April 20, 2009 at 6:21 pm

My number one beauty trick is to put lotion on right after I dry off after taking a shower. That way my skin is a little moist and it locks it in all day! Thanks for the opportunity.


Jennifer April 20, 2009 at 7:18 pm

My Beauty tip is to drink lots of water and always show confidence.

Great blog by the way!!


melissa April 20, 2009 at 7:19 pm

That mascara looks amazing!
My number one beauty trick is to use sunscreen every day no matter what — even if it is cloudy outside. It will really save one’s skin for the future!


Amie April 20, 2009 at 7:29 pm

My beauty tricks have already been said….sleep and moisturizer w/ sunscreen everyday! I also put aquaphor on my lips every night.


Kath April 20, 2009 at 8:31 pm

Beauty trick: wear makeup!!


Michelle C. April 20, 2009 at 9:21 pm

My number 1 beauty trick…wash your face morning and night!


Beck April 20, 2009 at 9:32 pm

I wouldn’t really say I have any beauty tricks…though I do use clear mascara to keep my eyebrows looking neat all day. Does that count?


Robin April 20, 2009 at 10:48 pm

My beauty secret? Drinks copious amounts of water and use an amazing, albeit super expensive, undereye concealer. It seriously works wonders!!! I love mascaras and want to try the Stiletto. Hope I win.


Leatitia April 21, 2009 at 10:46 am

First comes sleep, then comes Proactive! It really transformed my face to a heathly and cleared skin. I sound like an infomercial but it’s the truth! :)


Christy April 21, 2009 at 10:52 am

My number one beauty trick is Aveeno Warming Exfoliant. It is warming while you’re rubbing it in and leaves your skin so silky smooth!


Sarah April 21, 2009 at 10:55 am

What a great contest, Anglea! I’ve been meaning to try that mascara. My #1 beauty trick is actually wearing mascara–my eyes look so small and tired without it! Also, I apply a little bit of white eye pencil at the inner corners of my eys–this really brightens up my face. :)


Danica April 21, 2009 at 11:45 am

What a fun contest! I LOVE the before and after photos you took. My number 1 beauty trick is definitely to drink alot of water and eat healthy. It really makes a difference in not only how I look but how I feel. Mascara is my #1 thing I won’t go without :)

I will link to your contest next!


Danica April 21, 2009 at 11:48 am

And here is the link to the contest in my blog. While you are at it, be sure to check out the Annie’s Naturals Dressing Go Green Giveaway I am hosting too :)


Bronwyn April 21, 2009 at 11:50 am

I love your blog. I’m a continual lurker, not posting, just reading. :)
My number one beauty tip? Definitely just nice and simple; brushing my teeth twice a day. A nice smile is so key to looking and feeling good.
I just love the Maybelline mascaras, I have yet to try one by them I don’t like.


Jessicar April 21, 2009 at 12:48 pm

Hello Angela! I am a long-time reader
I think my number one beauty trick is tie between curling my eyelashes (NOTHING makes me look more awake or my eyes bigger), and being happy/confident with yourself. It brings a natural glow :D


Liz April 21, 2009 at 1:59 pm

I would love to try that mascara. I too have those blonde invisible lashes. My favorite beauty trick is to eat well adn drink lots of water. Eating healthy makes me feel good and my skin has never been better.


Ilham April 21, 2009 at 3:10 pm

this mascara looks really great on u Angela !! hope i get lucky this time :)
My beauty trick #1 is turmeric or Besan(rice flour) purifying masks as well as Moroccan Argan Oil for any use(hair, skin, nails..). the masks are for the body or the face. these tricks really work wonders and thats the beauty secret of indian and moroccan women.
hope it was helpful.


Shelby April 21, 2009 at 7:31 pm

You’re contest is featured in my latest blog post! =)


Holly April 22, 2009 at 11:22 am

I love reading everyone’s tips!

My favorite tip would have to be to keep those pearly whites WHITE! I use the Crest Whitening Strips (super <$$$) 2 x’s a year – any more than that and it’s not great for your teeth. I get a lot of compliments on my smile/teeth and I always tell my secret – white teeth make you look completely different…kinda crazy. :-)


Holly April 22, 2009 at 11:24 am

P.S. and I linked you back to my blog!


Cate April 22, 2009 at 12:48 pm

That mascara sounds amazing. I used to think that Lancome’s Definicil was the best but at $30 plus taxes, I couldn’t justify it. If I don’t win Stiletto (I will be jumping up and down around the house), at least I know I can go buy it for myself and not break the bank.

My beauty secret is sleep, sleep, and water.


Rita April 22, 2009 at 2:40 pm

Proactive–it burns a little but have been told my skin glows


Dana April 22, 2009 at 3:02 pm

I would have to say my number one beauty tip would be sleep, at least 7 hours! Btw, I love your blog and enjoy reading it everyday!


Jodi April 22, 2009 at 3:05 pm

Best beauty tip… “Incredible Hulk” smoothies (aka Green Monsters). Wow, what a difference this power-drink has made to my skin, hair and nails!


Anne K. April 22, 2009 at 3:23 pm

My number one beauty tip is to use a little under-eye concealer for those dark circles. It really makes a big difference!


catherine April 22, 2009 at 3:26 pm

My main beauty tip is to curl my lashes. Even if I’m just going to the gym, it’s the one thing I always do.


healthy ashley April 22, 2009 at 3:48 pm

My beauty to do is always curling my lashes (like Catherine!) and putting on perfume :)


Charline April 22, 2009 at 4:11 pm

this sounds bad… but get a bra that fits right…. makes all your other clothes fit and look better


Louise April 22, 2009 at 4:17 pm

My tip would have to be applying sunscreen to your face and hands every day :)


Tegan April 22, 2009 at 5:21 pm

Defiantly a good lotion. For face and body. I have super dry skin and living in dry, cold, Canada doesn’t help. I use Dermal therapy for most of my skin needs. This stuff is awesome.I can’t live without.


amber April 25, 2009 at 5:53 pm

Moisturize moisturize moisturize! :) My mom is 50, looks 40, all because she started moisturizing daily and using anti-aging products in her 20’s. I’m hoping to age like a fun wine myself! ;) Wash your face once a day also, it works wonders.

I’d love to win! Oh, and you have gorgeous eyes! Even without the mascara :)


T February 7, 2010 at 5:32 pm

I drink a lot of water to keep my skin healthy!
You look beautiful!


DaniiBayy May 4, 2010 at 3:24 am

My number one beauty trick is to wait until my hair is about 2/3 dry then blow dry it. it makes so much less frizzy


cynterria July 6, 2010 at 11:12 am

my #1 beauty tip is if u have one of those days where u didnt get enough sleep all u have to do is get cold tea bags and put them on ur eyes for 5 min works great or if u dont want to do that u gan also take spoons and put them in the fridge for 2 min take them out place under ur eye for 3 to 5 min.


tashia August 6, 2010 at 10:12 pm

For mascara applying i do one layer and then couple minutes later i do another by rolling the wand across the eyelashes a couple times. makes for thick beautiful lashes. :)
