While I'm "laid up" for a few days (and not blogging - sob!), I thought it would be fun to leave you with a giveaway contest. Our friend Loyd Cassler and the Armani Beauty team at Saks Fifth Avenue in Chevy Chase, Maryland, decided to help out. Aren't they generous? They donated three fabulous Rouge d'Armani lipsticks for the contest. They sure know how to treat beauty addicts!
The shades are Beige 102, a beautiful pink-beige sure to please all neutral lovers; Rouge 402, a a blue red that borders on plum; and Pink 500, a lavender pink. You can see swatches of all the shades at this Giorgio Armani Beauty link.
We will have three winners! To enter to win this week's giveaway contest, just leave a comment here once. Tell me in the comment which lipstick you would love to have. After you comment, feel free to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org 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 this evening, 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). I can't track followers through a third-party service, so you need to be on Google's list for me to verify the entry.
The deadline for entries will be Monday, January 3, 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 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. Make sure to check your e-mail - and look in your spam folder - when the contest ends.
This contest is open to U. S. and Canadian residents only. I won't be able to go to the Post Office the week the contest ends, but I can do Click-n-Ship!
