Sephora's Bare Escentuals Buxom Stay-There Eye Shadow Giveaway Contest

Buxom Stay-There Eye Shadow ($17) is a whole new breed of vibrant, lively eye color that will leave you begging for more. The term "breed" is particularly cute since each shade is named after a pup. In honor of our furry friends, Bare Escentuals is making a charitable contribution to Canine Companions for Independence - a non-profit organization that enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly trained assistance dogs. How could I not purchase a few for prizes?

This bounc-i-licious new eye color offers the ultimate experience with an unexpectedly plush, lightweight texture and vivid color. It leaps and bounds beyond what you've come to expect from eye color and, better yet, it's even waterproof. Named after our loyal four-legged friends, these stay-put shades will be your faithful new beauty companions as they comfort and care for your eyelids. The mineral-infused, paraben-free formula pampers delicate skin with soothing aloe extract, and vitamin E - all with a non-greasy, long-wearing finish. Touch it. Pet it. Love it, but only at Sephora.

I have two shades to give away: Mutt and Chihuahua. You can see their little swatches here. We will have two lucky winners!

How can you win a Stay-There? Just leave a comment here once and tell me your first choice of color. I can't guarantee you will receive your first choice, but let's hope!

After you comment, feel free to e-mail bestthingsinbeautycontests@gmail.com and identify your comment. You can never be too careful about sharing your e-mail address on a blog, so I would follow this second step if I were you (an alternative is to code your e-mail, e.g., myname at gmail dot com, in your comment).

You can "earn" a second entry by tweeting this contest. Just make sure to include "@BTiBeauty" (without the quotes) in your tweet. I will tweet the contest today, and you can simply retweet it to earn that second entry.

The deadline for entries will be Saturday, September 4, at midnight. The next morning, I will use a random number generator (random.org) to select the winners. I will e-mail the winners at that time. The winners will have 48 hours to reply to my message and provide a shipping address. After 48 hours, the prize will be forfeited, and another winner will be selected.

This contest is open to anyone anywhere. Here are the terms for overseas winners (outside the U.S. and Canada). I will carefully pack and ship the prize (as I always do). I cannot insure it - it's amazingly expensive to do so. If it leaves the U.S. and it's lost or stolen, I won't be able to replace it. We'll try this and see how it works. I'll do my best on this end; let's see if your mail services do right by you on the other end if we have an overseas winner.

Good Luck!

It's so hard to choose between these two shades; they are both so beautiful and the type of shades that I usually wear! I will say "Mutt", simply because it's easier to key in. crystesmom (at) yahoo (dot) com

I have been hoping you would do a review of this product at some point (and still do) :-), but doing a contest with it is really nice too. I've never seen a bronzed taupe shadow before, but it sounds lovely, and you just can't go wrong with silver. I'm so glad that dogs benefit from the purchase of these products, there are many needy ones out there. :-) Good luck to everyone! :-)

The very first thing that attracted me to this gorgeous eye shadow was that the benefits of the sales goes to training dogs to assist those with disabilities. And of course, one never has to teach these beautiful animals to be loyal friends and companions.Anyone who's had a pet knows that nobody, including humans, could ever replace the unconditional love they give to their owners.The amount of time and hard work it takes both on the trainer's part as well as the dogs is unbelievable but dogs don't know the meaning of giving up. I personally love the concept of dogs as companions for the disabled because not only do they assist them in every day routine duties, but the love they express toward their owner is palpable. These programs not only give these pooches another chance for life, since many of these dogs are found in the pounds and would have been euthanized if not for this program, but they give something incredibly special to their owners, something that no human can do, and that's the will to live. Any sick or disabled person will get better mentally and physically the very first time that puppy is placed in their arms.OK, now that I've gotten completely off subject, praising Bare Escentuals for donating towards this program, the eye shadows are gorgeous. The turquoise color you have displayed in the picture for the giveaway is breathtaking. It's so hard for me to see the real colors of the shadows from the swatches in the article but I'm sure that I'd be overjoyed if I won either one, although I think the chihuahua, if it's the purple blue that it appears to be would be my first choice. Thank you for this terrific giveaway and for reminding me that it's been a while since I've done something special for someone in need. Have a great holiday weekend.
