Congratulations to Madelyn E!Clé de Peau Beauté has introduced new Extra Rich Lipstick ($60) shades with its Fall 2011 collection. I have one to give away, courtesy of an industry friend. I was sorely tempted to keep R7, a beautiful brown rosewood shade, but I've got enough lipstick for one person.
Extra Rich Lipstick is a velvety lipstick with gorgeous true color and comforting moisture. I grabbed a quick photo of R7 this afternoon when the sun made a brief appearance. My photo is dark, but it should give you an idea of the shade. I believe, but am not 100% sure, that R7 is the shade shown at left in Clé de Peau's photo above. That photo looks too orange.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 have tweeted the contest, 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, August 20, 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 service does right by you on the other end if we have an overseas winner.
