Laura Geller Tropic Hues Baked Blush-n-Brighten Giveaway Contest

Laura Geller blended rich, tropical tones of coral, pink, peach, and bronze to create Blush-n-Brighten in Tropic Hues. This Italian-made blush will impart a natural, radiant color to your cheeks.

During manufacture, Blush-n-Brighten begins as a multicolored liquid that becomes a rich, silky powder after baking in a terracotta pan for 24 hours. Loaded with age-fighting, antioxidant protection, and free of mineral oil and parabens, these beauties are little masterpieces - in the pan and on the face. I love the complexity of the colors.

The Tropic Hues I'm holding as I write is more peach than the Laura Geller photo here. The blend of golden peach, rosy coral, and even baby pink shades in the compact is a work of art. Every baked compact has variations of the shades; Tropic Hues (the one I'm holding for the contest and my own) is warmer than the one in the photo.

If you win, you'll be stroke Blush-n-Brighten from the tops of your ears to the apples of your cheeks for a healthy, rosy glow. The Tropic Hues shade is vibrant, but you can moderate it easily with a light touch. I purchased one for this contest. It came from Laura Geller in New York without a box, but who needs another box to recycle?

How can you enter to win this contest? Easy! 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 later today, 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, May 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 will be open to anyone anywhere in the world. I will ship the prize uninsured (the insurance costs way too much). I will also provide proof of shipping, if necessary. I will to take a chance that both mail systems - the winner's and mine - will deliver the box without loss, theft, or destruction!

My contests are a way to give back to you for all the friendship you bring me. Thank you, and good luck!

These are so amazing at giving you a "real-life glow". I have "Grapefruit" and it was my go-to blush all last summer. This color looks like it would work for just about everyone! valhoff 3 at yahoo dot com

Wow, it looks amusing. I have heard about Laura Geller's products especially their concealer but have yet to try their products. I am keeping my fingers crossed.

I have tried Laura Geller products in the past and loved them because with every application and swirl of your brush in the product, you always will create a slightly different but just as beautiful look. It's funny that for a brand of make up that I love so much when I wear the products, I haven't purchased many. What I particularly like about these blushes, is that with the combination of colors that get picked up by your brush with each swirl, the look you create will always look natural and especially in direct sunlight, you will simply glow. Your skin will take on an illumination that no other product, with simply a single color can replicate. I also think the combination of colors allows for anyone, regardless of skin tone, to look fabulous as this product will look different but just as pretty on anyone who uses it.

Here again, another great choice for a giveaway by Charlestongirl.

Good luck to all!
