Giorgio Armani Beauty Mediterranean Palette Giveaway Contest

Congratulations to Mamavalveeta03! Val won the Giorgio Armani Beauty Mediterranean Palette. Random.org finally selected an early entrant - yea!

Our good friends from the Giorgio Armani Beauty Team at Saks Fifth Avenue in Chevy Chase, Maryland, donated this week's giveaway contest prize - and it's a great one. Four beautiful eye shadows and a fabulous bronzer grace this elegant mirrored compact. See my May feature with swatches of the Mediterranean Palette ($85). I am so grateful to the Saks Armani Team for this exciting giveaway contest!

We can count on Armani to design gorgeous bronzer/eye shadow palettes, and this year's edition, shown to the left, continued the magic. These palettes are unique because they work for everyone - for my fair skin, as well as those with dark skin and everyone in between. Armani's palettes are like a paint kit in one elegant compact. The eye shadow shades in this one are metallic copper, sea green, pale chiffon, and deep teal - seasonless colors. The bronzer is also a perfect shade for any season.

To enter to win this week's giveaway contest, just leave a comment here once. If you've ever tried - and loved - Armani Beauty products, please let us know which ones. We've got to spread the love.

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 soon, and you can simply retweet it to earn that second entry. You can earn a third entry by following the blog - either here or on Twitter (any entrant who is already a follower will automatically earn the follower point).

The deadline for entries will be Saturday, October 30, at midnight. The next morning, I will use a random number generator (random.org) to select the winner. I will e-mail the winner at that time. The winner 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.

Here is more "fine print." This contest is open to anyone anywhere. Here are the terms. I will carefully pack and ship the prize (as I always do). I cannot insure the palette for overseas shipment - it's amazingly expensive to do so. If it's lost or stolen in transit, I won't be able to replace it with another palette for an overseas winner. We'll see how this works. My shipping issues have occurred when I've shipped overseas - the packages to the U.S. and Canada always arrive without incident. 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!

Thank you, Loyd Cassler, Giannina Davis, and Nimati Nazhat for this stunning palette. You're the best! One Best Things in Beauty reader is going to be very happy - and pretty - gal.

I have some Giorgio Armani single eye shadows, some lipsticks, and a bronzer. The bronzer is the only one I found that looks good on my pale face. I marvel at their smooth colors that enhance rather than stand out from your face.

I have some Armani perfume but never tried any of their cosmetics yet. The shades in those eye shadows are gorgeous and would compliment any color eyes. I shall keep my fingers crossed for this contest. Good luck to all!

Armani used to make a green concealer that really covered up redness, unfortunately they don't' make it anymore but that was my favorite

Hi. I follow your blog by email. I've got GA's Crystal Palette but I'm not sure if it's LE or not.

It's got 4 lovely shimmery eyeshadows and 1 light shimmer powder tucked in underneath. I love it cause it introduced me to the high quality of GA eye shadows. Great texture and pigment.

Wow, what a lovely giveaway!
I own and adore Armani eyes to kill mascara as well as their #11 blush.
Thank you!!

My favorite product is the #21 Lip Shimmer. Face Fabric foundation is also pretty good. jody[dot]su[at]gmail[dot]com

Sparklehead said...

I've only tried Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara but in just a few weeks it's grown to HG status for me! For the past year I've been using Diorshow Iconic, which I love, but I kept wishing it had more volume. Then, I saw Sabrina at The Beauty Look Book say blog about Eye to Kill and knew I had to try it. At first it did seem better than Iconic, same length, same curl, more volume - exactly what I was looking for. Since then, I've also noticed that it's much quicker to apply, I like the brush more, and it does not clump EVER! I would LOVE to get to know this brand better!

I have the Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer and love the way it luminizes my makeup when I add just a tiny amount to my foundation! On days when my skin is looking good on it's own, I use a tiny bit of the Fluid Sheer by itself with a little cream blush or bronzer, and my skin look so fresh and clear. I also use it as a highlight product in various areas and it never fails to play up my best features. All around, it's a great product! crystesmom(at)yahoo(dot)com

Katie said...

Love those colours! They are the perfect colours for fall time i think! All it is missing is a purple (but that is not very mediterranean haha)

thanks a bunch for the chance!!

Read on Instyle magazine how great Armani products are and would love to give it a try especially the eye shadows line.

Love Armani foundation, concealer and lipstick, but I've never tried the shadows. I'd love to though!!

Yikes I can’t believe that I just about missed entering for this…. I LOVE Armani products. My favourites would be Armani Foundations (really miss Hydraglow), #10 Blush, Master Corrector, Lip Shimmers, Eyes to Kill Mascara and my biggest love would have to be for Armani’s Bronzer #1, it goes on me everyday and is very versatile, warms up my face and can double as an eye shadow in a pinch. Like everyone else here, I would love to try this Mediterranean Palette.
