Maybelline Stiletto Lash Mascara GIVEAWAY!

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on April 19, 2009



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.

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. :)
