Tarte Provocateur Amazonian Clay Shimmering Powder Giveaway Contest

Congratulations to Estelle! She won this beauty.
I'm feeling generous - and a little crazy - today, so let's do a second giveaway contest this week! I told you last week about Tarte's fabulous new Provocateur Amazonian Clay Shimmering Powder. I have one in Champagne I am going to give away.

Provocateur Amazonian Clay Shimmering Powder ($30) is a finely-milled powder infused with Amazonian clay, "nature's most perfect ingredient." This new highlighter was introduced for Spring 2011.

Amazonian Clay is rich in nutrients, with benefits for all skin types. Is your skin oily? Amazonian clay minimizes oil in and around the pores to balance skin and keep the product in place. Is your skin dry? The nourishing clay hydrates skin naturally to restore moisture. Have combination skin? Amazonian clay will intuitively identify your skin type and condition and deliver benefits to restore harmony. The result for everyone is promised to be makeup that wears better, longer, and truer!

Like all Tarte Cosmetics, these powders are also filled with good-for-your-skin ingredients, such as vitamins A, C, and E, They are formulated without all the things we try to avoid, including phthalates, synthetic fragrances and dyes, and sodium lauryl sulfate. I'm sure you know Tarte abhors animal testing.

This finely milled powder can be applied to cheeks, brow bones, and décolletage for a completely customizable glow - add a little for a soft, subtle sheen or add more for lavishly enhanced radiance I like the powder because it's creamy. I think that's one reason it's long-lasting.

It's available in two shades: Champagne and Rose. Both are gorgeous. They both are packaged in a padded, quilted compact with a mirror and round sponge applicator. I like the fact that the compact color mirrors the shade, so there's no guessing when I reach for one.

Champagne is the golden shade. How can you enter to win it? Just leave a comment here once. After you comment, feel free to send me an e-mail at bestthingsinbeautycontests@gmail.com and identify your comment. You can never be too careful about sharing an e-mail address you care about on a blog, so feel free to follow this step (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, but you can save me time by telling me you're a follower in your comment). 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, February 28, 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. 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 still can't stand in line at the Post Office to send international packages. I can do Click-n-Ship. I promise, international readers, we should be able to go back to completely open contests as soon as I finish intensive PT.

Good luck!

I can picture using the Champagne color as a highlighter across my cheekbones, on my lids, maybe even on my lips mixed with a bronzy gloss--it sounds like it could give you a total look in one compact!

I love shimmer but in moderation. I like a little illumination and shimmer on strategic points on your face which I think can accentuate one's best features on your face and distracting attention away from any flaws. And I love the fact that this make up brand it made with all natural, earth friendly ingredients. I think these colors would compliment every skin color and give us all that extra oomf that we all, whether we want to admit it,desperately need. Thanks for another great giveaway.
