Stila Holiday Blockbuster Set Giveaway Contest

Congratulations to Dlori, the winner of this incredible set!There were supposed to be only 50 of these available. Naturally, I ordered one for a giveaway contest! When I got the e-mail from Stila, I posted the set immediately. Later that day, when I saw it was sold out, I removed my announcement from the blog. Today, I found the Holiday Blockbuster Set at Costco for $20, $8 less than Stila charged for it. Nice deal! I'm not a big fan of exclusivity or deprivation, so I'm pleased that more women can get their hands on it. This set was pegged at a $450 value by Stila. I'm not sure about that, but it's certainly worth well over $100.

The eye shadows in this set remind me of the Bobbi Brights Eye Palette because of the small circles of color on the top level, along with circles of lip color. You need to know that the colors are not half as bright as they appear in this Stila photo. They are all attractive, and I am glad I purchased one of these for myself today at Costco. There's literally an eye shadow and lip color for every occasion.

Here's what comes in the multi-level set.
  • 30 eye shadows
  • 15 lip colors
  • 3 cheek colors
  • 1 highlighter
  • 1 bronzer
  • 1 mini eyeliner
  • 1 mini lip liner
  • 1 sponge-tipped applicators
  • 1 mini lip brush
  • 1 mini blush brush
I have one of these beauties to give away - the one I purchased from Stila. The Costco set is housed in one of those deadly plastic clamshells that I can never open without cutting myself, so I won't wish that on you.

To enter to win this week's giveaway contest, just leave a comment here once. 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). That's what most of you do.

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, November 27, 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!

Dlori said...

I was just about to go to sleep when I came upon this contest. I was EXTREMELY upset about not being able to purchase one of these sets from Stila since I am probably one of their best customers. Since that time I have not purchased anything from Stila. I thought I'd never see this palette again and here it is, 10 minutes before the contest ends it appears on my computer screen. I'll be praying all night I am lucky enough to win this beauty this time around. Hope everyone had a great holiday. Good luck to all.
