Bare Escentuals Buxom Stay-There Eye Shadow Giveaway Contest Winners

It's only fitting that we follow a cat story with a dog story! We have two winners - lucky gals who will both be receiving their first color choice of Buxom Stay-There Eye Shadow. Congratulations to Amber and Hanna! Both have been notified by e-mail. selected Amber first, so she will receive her first choice of shades (Mutt). Then it selected Hanna, and since she wanted the other (Chihuahua), she will receive her first choice too! I love it when things work out that way.

Buxom Stay-There Eye Shadow ($17) is a whole new breed of vibrant, lively eye color that will leave you begging for more, according to Bare Escentuals. 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.

When I ordered Mutt and Chihuahua for the contest, I also ordered one for myself in Poodle (pale gold). I'll have to write a review of it this week. So far, I've read conflicting impressions of the shadow at friends' blogs. Maybe we can talk Amber and Hanna into adding comments to let us know how they like the look and wear of their new pups.

Thank you all for entering (and your tweets), for your sweet comments and e-mails, and for reading Best Things in Beauty! I have the greatest readers on earth! That's why we will start another giveaway contest later today. Come back!

I adore these cream shadows. I own all of them except the coppery one. The texture is different from other cream shadows, so if that doesn't big you ( and you wear a primer), I don't see what isn't to love.

The Non-Blonde wasn't thrilled. I'll wear that Poodle tomorrow and see how I like it. I suspect I'm going to love it. I'm a cream shadow fan anyhow.
