A BIG Chance to Win From Maybelline!


*CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED - THANKS TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED!*

Who's up for free makeup? I know I always am! See the bottom of this post for details!


In the meantime, a little background leading up to the contest...

Okay, so there's one product I constantly find myself arguing about.

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara.

Loved by beauty editors and makeup artists alike, and consistently a winner on all kinds of top beauty product lists... I just can't make this stuff work for me. I reviewed it in a previous post and while most of my fave mascaras do come from Maybelline, I've just never been able to get on the Great Lash Bandwagon. Tons of people disagree with me, though, so it looks like I'll be arguing for quite a while. But maybe I'll be on the other side soon...

Enter Great Lash BIG. It looks like the same formula that makes Great Lash the "Number 1" mascara but with a new gigantic brush. One of my biggest complaints about the original Great Lash is the small brush, so YAY!



Looks pretty interesting. Brittany over at Clumps of Mascara has a comparison of regular Great Lash and the new Great Lash Big, so float on over there if you'd like more info.

*CONTEST INFO*

The awesome folks over at Maybelline have been kind enough to sponsor a little contest for all you wonderful readers out there!

You'll win a Maybelline Gift Pack filled with full-sized samples of Great Lash BIG and tons of other Maybelline NY products, including a Maybelline-branded compact mirror (total prize value of $75).

Here's what you need to do:

1. Maybelline sent out BIG, the Great Lash Big mascot, out into the busy streets of NYC to find a charismatic young woman to appear in the Great Lash Big Gig commercial. Check out the casting process below and pay special attention to the actual commercial at the end.


2. Leave a comment on the post and let me know how many times you spot "BIG" (the Great Lash BIG mascot) in the final commercial (starts at 2:08) - any comments will qualify as entries, you don't have to be correct to win. Also, if you comment as anonymous please leave your email (or send me a private email) just so I have a way to contact you.

3. Follow this blog (you can do this from the sidebar or up at the top of the screen) for a second entry. (optional)

4. Follow me on Twitter (link on the sidebar) for a third entry. (also optional)

That's it! Pretty simple, right?

You have until Sunday, October 25th to enter and I will notify the winner on Monday, October 26th.

Please let me know if you have any problems entering.

Happy viewing everyone!
