Comment to Win More Than $400 in Elizabeth Arden Makeup and Skincare [5 Winners!]

Published in: Just For Fun

  • The giveaway is now closed. Congrats to winners Jen, Susie G, Bearsmama, C. Diff and Steph. Before you go, check the home page for ongoing giveaways.

I was cruising my nearby Macy’s last week when I spotted something akin to a mirage in the middle of the desert. I almost dropped my half-caf latte! There, before me in the middle of the cosmetics department, sat a brand spankin’ new Elizabeth Arden counter.



I was so bummed when EA left Macy’s a few years ago. I’d been craving a new tube of Ceramide Mascara, so I hustled over to the new counter to restock.

It turns out the line is baaaack! Yup, Bay Area babes, we’ll have yet another reason to prowl our local Macy’s makeup counters.

Bay Area gals, look for Elizabeth Arden counters to open at the following stores this spring:
Roseville, Walnut Creek, Concord, Stonestown (San Francisco), Eastridge (San Jose), Serramonte (Daly City), Northgate (San Rafael), Salinas (Northridge), Hilltop (Richmond), Bay Fair (San Leandro), Cupertino, Sunnyvale (Town Center) and Corte Madera.

Live outside the area? No problem. Get your Elizabeth Arden fix online at

To celebrate the news, Elizabeth Arden is hooking us up with a HELLA SWEET giveaway, and it’s open to Makeup and Beauty Blog readers everywhere (even international).

Get ready, because it’s one of the biggest MBB giveaways to date! πŸ™‚

    I love EA frangrances, they seem to be the only frangrances that last on me all day! I learnt a trick the other day that if you put a dob of vaseline on your pulse point prior to putting frangrance on, that will extend the smell-time of your favourite scents! Cool or what?

  65. My love affair with Elizabeth Arden started as a young model in my 20’s when I attended a Red Door seminar. I don’t have access to EA now so I would love to win!


    thank you Karen, for such an awesome giveaway!

    so this may not get me any points, but i’ve never tried anything elizabeth arden. if i’m not mistaken, though, my mom has her red door perfume (which i bought her) and she LOVES it.

    so, here’s my random comment (lol): today was a good day because my canadiens beat ovechkin and the capitals and are on their way to playing the penguins. yep. i’m a total hockey nut. how much farther can you get from beauty? LOL

    Today I made a little boy smile by turning his empty cereal box into a train! It was cool, with wheels and cars and a light.

    today was 31 cent scoop day at Baskin Robbins (3 scoop max) and as soon as I finished with my 1 hr with my personal trainer I walked across the street to BR and stuffed my face with as much ice cream as I was allowed to buy…3 scoops = 1.04 with tax….delicious!

  82. grissel says:

    Cool, I just walked through Union Square Macy’s Cosmetics Dept. and missed it. Been dying to try Prevage Anti-Aging Serum! Will have to beg for some samples now.

  83. Ashley says:

    Ahaha I guess the one of the perks of being in Canada is that Elizabeth Arden never left! I recently tried the Ceramide mascara and it’s great but it flakes. Still, I don’t care! I will do ANYTHING for volume, length, and curl and Ceramide does all of that. My mom and grandmother have been using those little capsules religiously for a looong time and they look 10 years younger than they really are but I still have no idea what the capsules are for.

    I haven’t tried anything from Elizabeth Arden before, so it would be nice to try something from them. I like reality tv, it’s the only tv I watch because it’s real people and you normally don’t have to know what happened in the previous episodes. I like Kitchen Nightmares and Paranormal State, as my favorite tv shows right now.

  195. Sarah says:

    I read this blog all the time last year when I was in Japan and even though I never win stuff like this or often bother to even try, was always slightly sad that giveaways were never international. Now I’m in Hawaii, and it’s international! I’ve been meaning to start commenting here, so might as well start with this?
    The best breakfast is a cup (or two) of coffee, and possibly a banana if my stomach is up to it. The sole exception to this is if I am visiting my parents and my mother makes scrambled potatoes. I don’t generally eat much in the morning, but I can snarf down two servings of my mom’s potatoes.

  196. Fieran says:

    I’m in love with Mediterranean by Elizabeth Arden. It was a gift my Mom got me at duty free when I was leaving home and I remember being really worried about whether it would make it through security as I had to hand-carry it. Thank goodness it did!

  197. Nika says:

    You know you’re addicted to makeupandbeautyblog when you unconsciously find yourself wanting to buy more products from Urban Decay and Benefit, and brushes from MAC πŸ˜‰ I KNOW I AM!

  210. YJ says:

    My mom always wore the Blue Grass fragrance by Elizabeth Arden. I’m pretty positive the horse on the label started my obsession with equines. She wears it so sparingly though, it’s almost like a treat when I do catch a whiff of it. Makes me nostalgic. Every little girl’s mother is the most glamorous person to them, especially when you watch them get all dolled up for a special night out! =)

    That perfume sounds delicious. I like that it’s just called Pretty…I’m not much of an addict or an angel or anything like that. Usually my cranky dirtball self just wants to feel kind of pretty. Come to think of it, they should make a scent called “Socially Acceptable” and I’d be on it.

  429. Sharon says:

    Holy cow Karen, that’s some giveaway!

    I’ve never tried Elizabeth Arden, to be honest… too pricey for me. I do see it in Shoppers Drug Marts near me, though, and the serum sounds really tempting. The biggest news I heard this week, beauty-wise, is that MUFE is pulling out of all the Shoppers in Canada — the existing product in the stores will be sold but after that… gone. Their eyeshadows are so awesomely pigmented and I was hoping to build up a collection. The closest Sephora to me is two hours’ drive so not worth the trip unless it was for a massive haul.

  430. Heather says:

    I’ve never tried their stuff but I will on your recommendation, Karen

  431. Cassandra says:

    My favorite products by Elizabeth Arden are definitely the products in the prevage line, they work wonders… the only thing i don’t like is the price haha.

  438. MaryG says:

    Red Door was the first perfume I spritzed as a young, young girl (Love’s Baby Soft was not my speed). So, whenever I think of Elizabeth Arden, it reminds me of all those little steps I took toward becoming a woman. LipSmackers, clear nail polish and a little Red Door.

    Hi Karen,
    Thanks for the heads up, I am so inspired to try the Ceramide Mascara! I have curly hair and stick straight lashes (like that makes any sense!). I curl my lashes and if I use anything but waterproof mascara, they go stick straight again. It would be nice to find a regular mascara that gives me fierce lashes w/o the drying/brittle effect that some WP mascaras tend to have. I’ve only recently discovered your site, and love it! Thanks again, for this and all the great tips, advice and fab finds… ;o)

  566. Lucy says:

    Please enter me in the giveaway. I’ve always loved Elizabeth Arden. I guess it was the mystique of the Red Door. I remember reading about the rich ladies who went there. I used to devour Vogue, Harper’s Baazar and Elle at the library while in school. I also used to wear Blue Grass perfume and use the bath powder. I don’t even know if they still sell it. Elizabeth Arden still has a small counter at Boscov’s Department Store. I got a gift with purchase a few weeks ago when I bought a bottle of perfume. Who’s name escapes me at the moment. There was a small sample of Pretty hand creme. It smells delicious! I also have always loved their lipsticks. This is a fantastic giveaway. Thank you.

  567. Paula Rose says:

    Hmm, I had no idea Prevage was an EA line! Here goes nuthin’!

    I can’t sleep and I am SO tired!!!

  620. Audrey H. says:

    am following on Twitter @pelletposy


  621. Diane K. says:

    I entered this sweepstakes using both methods. But for this entry, I followed you on twitter and retweeted about this contest at, I also tweeted about this contest on the same as above twitter site ( and I also am a fan of yours on facebook and shared on my facebook about this contest at

    Thank you for all you do and for always thinking about your fans. I am also looking forward to your review on the smashbox product that turns any shadow into a metalic hue. I’ve had the product sitting in my shopping cart at until after you reviewed it because I trust your judgment. I truly hope it’s as great as they portray it to be Thanks again.

  622. Diane K. says:

    This is my second method for entering this contest which is commenting on anything I’d like. Well, as a person never at a loss for words, I don’t know where to begin. So I’ll start by saying that although I’ve been told I have pretty green eyes, they pale in comparison to Tab’s gorgeous green emerald gems. Can you imagine having that eyecolor? Every MAC color would look better than the next. So although a little jealous, I’m trying to let it go.

    Second, when I saw this giveaway and ALL the incredible gifts you were giving away, I started sweating so badly I thought I was going into a very early menopause. I love Elizabeth Arden Products but I rarely see them advertised or in the stores I shop with the exception of the Prevage, which I have to say,really does work(personally I also love the smell of it). But to see all these high end products together all in one giveaway was almost too much to handle. Thank goodness I had a bag nearby so when I started hyperventilating I had something to reach for and breath into. Too bad the bag was plastic and didn’t quite help the situation. I wasn’t even aware you could find that lip stick/gloss anywhere but at the Red Door Salon, the Elizabeth Arden Spa in New York.

    I am subscribed to many beauty newsletters but I never miss reading yours. The combination of humor, the great display of actual color swatches to give your readers an idea of the true color of the products, and a very detailed and honest review of the new products hitting the market has been a huge money saver for me. I generally don’t trust what anyone else says about beauty products because these products will look different on each one of us. But when you give the thumbs up or down, I’ve learned to listen because 9 out of 10 times, you’re right on. Although you’re clearly a big MAC fan, you show no hesitation in giving a poor review if the product deserves it.

    I also appreciate the fact that you seem to really think about new and innovative giveaways that will excite your readers and with this one, you’ve gone so above and beyond, it’s gonna be very hard to top. But it’s nice to see someone who truly enjoys what she does and who wants to help women look and feel the best they possibly can. So many women don’t know how to apply make up properly or only know one way of doing so. But with your tutorials, it’s so much fun to play around with all different looks and to really have fun with make up, which is really what make up is all about. I’ve learned so much and have gotten so many compliments from friends and strangers alike that I’ve grown in self confidence and am not afraid to expand my horizons and try new things.

    Well, I think this book is just about over so I’ll end by saying a big thank you for adding a little fun into all the lives of make up junkies like myself. What’s the fun of spending all your money on make up when you never wear it because you have no idea how to apply it? You make it fun and exciting.

  623. Noelle says:

    Sounds like a neat prize! I have never tried Elizabeth Arden products, but I really enjoy trying new things. I also love cupcakes and balloons.
