Congratulations to Pam! She won Mystery Box 2!I posted a mystery box giveaway contest last weekend, and the number of entries has been staggering. So, let's start a second one - even before the deadline for the first!
As a beauty blogger, I am always scouting the counters for the latest and greatest, and if I like it, I buy it (assuming I can afford it). That means I buy a lot of beautiful makeup. I have been cleaning up my house, trying to make lots of room for myself to stumble around after my knee replacement surgery, and I was blown away by the number of pretty things I have bought in the last year - and not used, photographed, or featured on my blog. They appealed to me, and I bought them. I love being surrounded by beautiful things, but I also love giving things away.
The Mystery Box Giveaway Contest Round 2 will have one winner who will receive a mystery beauty box, with a couple of makeup items or a palette that carried me away this year. The prizes were not sent to me by beauty companies for review. If you win, you might get a blusher, lipstick, or eye shadow, or three. It will depend on what I can fit in your box. The brands are only the best, including Armani, Dior, Bobbi Brown, Clinique, Laura Mercier, YSL. You get the drift.
To enter to win this week's giveaway contest, just leave a comment here once. Tell me in the comment about your skin tone (e.g., light, medium, or dark and yellow or pink undertones) so that I can try to select something that will work for you. 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 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). 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.
This contest will have a short run so that I can get your box off before Christmas. The deadline for entries will be Tuesday, December 21, 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 24 hours to reply to my message and provide a shipping address. After 24 hours, the prize will be forfeited, and another winner will be selected. Make sure to check your e-mail that day - and look in your spam folder.
Unlike the first mystery box contest, which ends tomorrow, this contest is open to U. S. and Canadian residents only.
Update 12/22: I ended this contest a few hours earlier than I had originally announced. Entries had slowed, and I realized I wouldn't be able to get the winner's box off if I went another day. I'll do another mystery box contest early in January, so if you were "timing" your entry, there will be another chance.
