Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder Giveaway Contest

Congratulations to Roshana!

Named InStyle's Best Bronzing Powder for 2011, Guerlain's Terracotta Bronzing Powder creates a natural-looking tan, whatever your complexion. Its unique texture has always been Guerlain's not-so-well-kept secret. It leaves no harsh lines of demarcation, only a sheer, natural, radiant, luminous tan. Its formula, enriched with moisturizing ingredients, doesn't dry out the skin. It will leave you with a sun-kissed glow.

"With tiny flecks of gold, peach, and a hint of rose swirled in, this powder gives skin a Bali (not Broadway) glow and won't muddy fair complexions," makeup artist Nick Barose told InStyle. I'd say that's a great description.

I hear #02 is the most popular shade because it's universally flattering. Courtesy of a friend in the industry, I have one to give away. I think that's pretty exciting. Let's have fun with this giveaway contest. You might want to tell us why you want/need this bronzer in the comments. I want it "just because" is a perfectly acceptable reason. I have the I-wants all the time.

How can you enter to win? Here's the "fine print."

There are a few simple steps. First, all you really have to do is leave a comment on this feature. After you comment here, 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 extra entries. Follow this blog (through an e-mail subscription or though one of the many Google readers - see sidebar at right) to earn a second entry. You don't have to follow to enter. I want everyone to have a chance, but I also want to reward my followers.

You can earn a third 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. Only one tweet will be counted as an entry. I appreciate multiple tweets, but it's not necessary.

The deadline for entries will be Saturday, July 30, at midnight. The next day, I will use a random number generator (random.org) to select the winner. I will e-mail the winner on Sunday. 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 anyone anywhere. Here are the terms. I will carefully pack and ship the prize (as I always do). I cannot insure the prize for overseas shipment - it's amazingly expensive to do so because of the way I have to send insured mail. If it's lost or stolen in transit, I won't be able to replace it with another. I'll do my best on this end; let's see if your mail services do right by you on the other end if we have an overseas winner.

Good luck!

oooh beautiful... believe it or not I was just today thinking about getting a nice powder bronzer for our holiday in France. I have a gel bronzer and a multiple one so far and I use both of them a lot but I'm sure a Guerlain one would quickly become a favourite too! Thanks for the giveaway.

I've been afraid to try bronzers because I was afraid of turning out to look like a blonde version of Snooki, but this sounds really nice. Thank you! crystesmom (at) yahoo (dot) com

Dlori said...

I generally don't use bronzers because I have very fair skin and really don't know exactly how to use it. I wish one of the bloggers, (hint, hint) would either do a video or a write up as to exactly how to apply a bronzer especially for those with fair skin without looking like a tangerine.

Another great giveaway from one of my favorite bloggers.

Good luck to all and thank you for the opportunity to possibly win such a beautiful giveaway.

I happen to have recently checked this bronzer out at my local Sephora store. I seem to like shade 01 and shade 02. I have read great reviews on how natural this bronzer looks on your skin without leaving any stike or orange look. I would love to finaly try it.

Lisa S. said...

Believe it or not I have NEVER tried a bronzer! I sure have been tempted after reading all of your recent posts about the great ones out there this summer. I am very fair and I guess afraid that I won't know how to apply it to make it look like a natural glow! This one sounds like it would be foolproof!

Guerlain does bronzer better than anyone in the game. I missed out on a vacation this summer and missed my summer tan time as well :(

I've always wondered what made this so special (and have never lived near a Guerlain counter), but maybe the axiom is true: "The first is always the best and all the rest are just imitators!"

What a perfect summer giveaway!!! An interesting fact - one of these Guerlain bronzers is sold every minute all over the world - in this shade! Guerlain epitomizes Parisian chic, according to a training I attended by the company. No other cosmetic company has so much success with a bronzer line. Good luck to the winner!

Thanks for yet another giveaway! I'd love to try this bronzer because, well, I've never believed that bronzers did much for women of color. But if you say it's universally flattering, I defer to your superior knowledge and taste :).

one can never have too many Guerlain products... I find that I love their bronzers and kohl eyeliners and liquid liners and lipsticks and eyeshadows alike. Almost as much as I love Chanel. And that is not good for the pocketbook. So thank you for the giveaway!

I luv Guerlain products too! I, as well, have wanted to try this product but it's pricey so have passed, hence a very generous giveaway. U know what i also love by Guerlain? Terracotta Cooling Bronzing Mist, but again pricey.

here is my tweet: http://twitter.com/#!/abbeautycall/status/97316049208344576

I hope i'm not blind but I don't see your "followers" tab to follow via google friend connect.

I've never tried a Guerlain bronzer, although I promise myself I will every time a new one comes out. This would be a great opportunity to try one!

Of course, I follow you by email and on Twitter, and I'm off to tweet this contest right now.

Thanks for offering such a great gift!

Carrie Meredith said...

Ooh, I'd like to enter, please! I am the fairest of the fair, and I use a bronzer year-round in combination with well-placed blush. It makes a huge difference, and sometimes, it's all the make-up I'll wear (in addition to concealer). I've never tried Guerlain Terracotta, and would absolutely love to! Thanks for hosting this giveaway.
