Collection Essentielle de Chanel Lumière Romantique Giveaway Contest

You know you've hoarded too much makeup when you find a perfectly lovely Chanel multi-use makeup palette for face, lips, and eyes that you bought, but never tried. This Collection Essentielle de Chanel Lumière Romantique was tucked away in a bag with things I had squirreled away for the day I needed them. I'm sure the bag has been sitting here for a couple of years, but the makeup is no worse for wear.

When I found it, I had an instant desire to use it. Sanity prevailed, and I decided to give it away. Surely, I thought, someone might enjoy it more than I would!

Inside the Chanel box, the winner of this contest will find a velveteen pouch with a fold-over flap that opens to reveal three tools: a blush brush, an eye shadow brush, and a sponge-tipped applicator. The Fard à Lèvres, Blush Joues, and Poudres Douceur Yeux shades are all soft and pretty. They should look good on anyone.

Interested? Here's the "fine print" for the contest.

There are a few simple steps to enter. 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) and the contest 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, August 27, 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.

Good luck!
