Giveaway – The Mascara Diaries

17 Oct

I’m lucky to have naturally long lashes. I could get away with not wearing mascara, but the difference it makes when I put it on is noticeable. I’ve been bouncing back and forth between Sephora brand and Maybelline Lash Stilleto and I’m honestly not thrilled with either. They either dry out my lashes, clump, or run. Why is finding the perfect mascara so hard?

You may remember that earlier this year I asked for your favorite red lipstick. Revlon Matte Lipstick won your vote.  I went out and bought it, and I have been thrilled with the results.  So I’m turning to you again.

What is your favorite mascara and why? I’m open to any price range, any gimmick, any suggestion really. Just tell me why you love it.

I’ll randomly choose 1 of your suggestions to win a $10 Sephora gift card. Just leave your answer in a comment below. Want an additional entry? Tweet or Like this post and let me know you did (you must either follow @mockoff, or be a friend on Facebook)!

Winner will be chosen on Sunday October 24th, 5PM PST.

Thanks everyone and good luck!


People Actually Win These Things

27 Jul

Some might call me a lucky person. It started when I was in 6th grade. I was the 9th caller on the radio and won tickets to see the Harlem Globetrotters, a George Michael CD and tickets to an Adam Sandler movie. When I was 17, I won a trip to Orlando from the same radio station to meet my favorite band (which happens to be a popular late 90’s boyband that shall remain nameless). Going to college in Las Vegas seemed to perpetuate my luck as I was always winning bits of money on slots and tables here and there.

So I guess it is only natural that I tend to enter each and every sweepstakes that floats through my inbox. I do this not expecting to win, but I get a sort of natural high from the possibility of winning. I sort of mindlessly enter now, hoping that some of my past luck will come back. Even I was a bit surprised when I received an email from Whish Body Products stating I had won a Lucky Magazine Lucky Breaks giveaway.

I’m sure you’ve seen the daily emails from Lucky. Enter to win our cover look! A great trip! The latest accessory from DVF!, etc. I always enter and always think “Wow, hundreds of thousands of other women are probably sitting in their cubical doing the exact same thing”. So I was thrilled to receive the email from Whish.

I just received my prize today. It’s a wonderful smelling pomegranate “Hair Inhibiting Gel” (LOVE that). While I haven’t tried it yet, I am already impressed with the beautiful retro packaging and the product’s promise to reduce hair density by 26%. What woman doesn’t want that?

Thanks to Whish and Lucky Magazine I am going to shower happy tonight. Just call me lucky.

They are pretty hilarious and great guys and they need your help. Aflac (yup, the duck) is having an online video contest. The video with the most votes wins $25, 000! The guys have put together an awesome video and they would love your vote! (And frankly I would love Chris to win so he can buy something nice and sparkly for my friend…)
