Smashbox's Beauty in Bloom is an eye wardrobe in one palette. Each of the three trios in the palette gives you a complete look or you can mix and match with your choice of three base shades, three lid shades, and three contour, liner, or crease shades. Your eyes can be golden one day and plum the next - all with one palette. I like options, and this nine-shade palette provides plenty of options.
The palette was available at Nordstrom in a Glambox kit. I found myself with an extra one, so one lucky Best Things in Beauty reader can win it. There are a few simple steps to enter this contest. Please note: this is a three-day contest, unlike the weekly Best Things in Beauty giveaway contests. I'll be starting another fabulous giveaway mid-week.
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. I must be able to track this entry. One easy way is to follow by e-mail subscription or to ensure that Best Things in Beauty is on your blog list if you have a Google account.
You can earn a third entry by tweeting this contest. Just make sure to include "@BTiBeauty" (without the quotes) and the contest title 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 Wednesday, September 28, 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. Lately, my shipping luck has improved significantly.
Update: I left in the contest text some words about choosing a shade. Silly me! All shades come in one palette. Sorry for confusing everyone!
