bareMinerals Faux & Foxy Giveaway Contest

Congratulations to Sooj!
Bare Escentuals' bareMinerals Faux & Foxy three-piece set offers exactly what you need to fake that sun-kissed look. The set includes a Faux Tan SPF 15, a Buff & Go brush, and 100% Natural Lipgloss SPF 15. The limited-edition set is exclusive to Sephora. I purchased one Faux & Foxy set to give away.

The bronzer creates a beautiful, glowing tanned complexion and has the added benefit of sun protection. To apply, buff Faux Tan SPF 15 All-Over Face Color in Sunlit Bronze onto the areas of your face the sun would naturally touch (like the bridge of your nose, eyes, cheeks, and forehead) using the Buff & Go Brush. Then enjoy a natural, sun-kissed look without ever stepping foot in the sun. With one gorgeous swipe of 100% Natural SPF 15 Lipgloss in French Toast (a golden bronze), you'll be fabulously faux-tanned and foxy.

All of the pieces are adorned in bronze, carrying the theme of the set into the packaging. If you pull out a piece for touch-ups, you'll be carrying summer with you. I thought I would use this set when I purchased it. Since that time, I've bought many bronzers, and it's clear to me now that I can't use them all this summer. That's why this lovely set is this week's giveaway.

How can you enter to win? 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 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, 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 Saturday, April 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. Make sure to check your e-mail - and look in your spam folder - when the contest ends.

The contest is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada. Good luck!

With my pastey white skin, I'd love to find a product that will give me a golden bronzed look without looking fake. This set looks really interesting and anything from this company is usually fabulous. Happy Easter and Passover to all and Good luck to all as well. Thank you Adrianne for another fabulous giveaway!
