Chantecaille Love Brilliant Gloss Giveaway Contest

Congratulations to Kindy!
Much has been made of Angelina Jolie's application of Chantecaille's Love Brilliant Lip Gloss ($32) at the Golden Globe Awards ceremony. Without even seeking the attention, Chantecaille became the lip gloss of choice when Jolie was seen touching up her lips on camera. What gloss was she wearing? Brilliant Gloss in Love.

Angelina is also said to wear Charm, and she wore Chantecaille's Amaretto Lip Gloss for her recent cover on Vanity Fair, but it was Love she pulled out of her evening bag at the Golden Globes. The next day, Love sold out everywhere. You couldn't get your hands it. Chantecaille ran out of stock, Neiman Marcus ran out - every source ran out. The run on Love was amazing, showing the power of Angelina Jolie to sell makeup - without really trying. I'm glad she drew attention to Chantecaille. I suspect, from what I've read about Jolie, that she finds Chantecaille's philanthropy as magnificent as I do.

Brilliant Gloss is made from a hydrating and enriching formula that imparts long-lasting color and brilliant shine. An exclusive "jellified" system creates long-lasting wear; it almost has the look of jelly, with its sheer, colorful movement. Microspheres of organic wheat protein-linked sugars create soft, supple, and plumped lips (without any tingling feeling) for a perfect pout. Among the ingredients, Brilliant Gloss lists green tea extract and vegetal-linked polysaccharides to protect the delicate skin on our lips. Like other Chantecaille makeup, it's fabulous.

Here's a swatch of Love on my arm. It's a light, petal pink. Don't you think it's a perfect lip gloss color?

How can you enter to win this contest (legally a sweepstakes - see below)? 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. If you are a follower, it would help me tally entries if you tell me how you follow. 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. You must 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 Saturday, October 22, 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.

Good luck!

Legal notice: There was a commotion on Twitter yesterday when Modesty Brown drew our attention to the "legalities" of sweepstakes, contests in which the winner is drawn at random. The law requires many official rules that most bloggers don't publish. Most of us had no idea that we might be required to include so much legalese on our "sweepstakes." For those who love too much information, here are more rules for this "contest" - those that aren't stated above. I will reference these additional disclosures in all future giveaways.
  • No purchase is necessary - you can't buy things here anyhow!
  • Entrants must be 18 years of age or older.
  • The number of eligible entries received will determine the odds of winning.
  • Should one occur, a dispute or mistake will be handled to ensure the winner is reasonably happy.
  • I will publish the name the winner used in the comment required to enter. Full names not disclosed in the comment will not be publicized.
  • The winner releases Best Things in Beauty for all liability by providing a mailing address. That means you can't blame me if you don't like it or you break your leg getting it out of your mailbox.
  • You can always find Charlestongirl by e-mail at bestthingsinbeauty@gmail.com.
  • This contest is regulated in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
  • Void where prohibited by law.
  • BTW, the winner will receive the gloss without a Chantecaille box.
  • Can you even believe this?

Hi -
I think it's just stupid that you have to post those rules! My goodness, I can't believe what you have to do just to give something away! LOL!
I saw Jolie use the gloss but how did everyone know what shade it was and how did it sell out overnight - that's crazy. It's a perfect delicate color - are you saying that it's only available on Evilbay? Too bad!
Thanks for not letting the "rules" get in the way of giving us a chance to win.
I follow you thru email - jdvortex1 at ca dot rr dot com.
