That headline is an order! Bobbi Brown has a fabulous Pretty Powerful contest every Tuesday on Twitter. If you don't enter, then you don't love makeup! I was selected as a winner the week before last, and I received a generous selection from the Cabana Corals Collection a few days later! It made me deliriously happy! Pretty powerful, huh?
My friends, you have to enter this week - and every week if you live in the United States! If you don't have a Twitter account, what are you waiting for? Just go there and sign up. It's fast and easy. You don't have to use your real name if you prefer, and you don't have to tweet every day (although you may get addicted). You don't even have to follow a lot of people, but I'd recommend you follow @AskBobbiBrown. I'd love it if you follow me too @BTiBeauty, but no need - you really should follow Bobbi!
Here's the scoop. Every Tuesday through March 30, between 12:01 am to 11:59 pm ET, go to @AskBobbiBrown on Twitter. Search on @AskBobbiBrown ("Find People" is unreliable for me - don't know why). When you see the results, click on one of the colored @AskBobbiBrown links - that will take you to Bobbi's page - suggest you then follow by clicking on "follow." Or, you can search on #prettypowerful (the "#" character is called a hashtag, and it facilitates searches). You need to do that to find Bobbi's Tuesday question. This Tuesday, I will retweet Bobbi's question for my followers. Once you find the question, tweet why Bobbi Brown's cosmetics make you feel pretty powerful for a chance to win various Bobbi Brown Cosmetics products. Last week's question was, "Tweet us a Bobbi makeup tip that makes you feel #prettypowerful." How easy is that? Even if you didn't know one of Bobbi's world-famous tips, you could have checked out her Web site to find one.
To be entered into this sweepstakes, the tweets must use the hashtag #prettypowerful (that means put "#prettypowerful" (no quotes in your tweet) within the 140 characters Twitter allows you to write). If you aren't a tweety bird and don't understand these directions, e-mail me today or Monday at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will try to help you.
Each week four (4) winners are chosen at random to win a prize containing various Bobbi Brown Cosmetic products. I was blown away by the generosity of the prize I received: the to-die-for Pink Quartz Shimmer Brick, Cabo Coral Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks, Sunset Beach Shimmer Lip Gloss, Coral Sand Shimmer Lip Gloss, and Coral Glaze Metallic Lip Color! I'll be one peachy gal this spring and summer.
The approximate retail value of each prize package is $130. Imagine...a chance at winning $130 worth of fabulous new Bobbi Brown makeup with just one tweet! If you aren't tweeting, you are just increasing someone else's chances of winning!
In January, I told you about Bobbi's Pretty Powerful campaign and the video contest. Starting March 12, you will be able to cheer on the semi-finalists by voting at Bobbi's Web site. Fifteen woman have made it that far. Let's remember to vote! This is a great campaign for and about "real women."
You can enter the Pretty Powerful Tweetstakes from the Web or from your Web-enabled phone. Don't forget, this Tuesday and every Tuesday through March 30! It only takes a minute, so enter before you go to work, during the day, or after work when you get home. Just enter!
