Quick Giveaway Contest: Tarte TEN Limited-Edition Collector's Eye Shadow Palette

Congratulations to Bethany C!
As I carried more new things into my house today (a fruitful day of shopping on Small Business Saturday), it struck me to give away something to make room. The first thing I spied was this beautiful eye shadow palette from Tarte, which came with a sample of Lights, Camera, Lashes. I decided to run a quick, ad hoc giveaway contest. Enter now so you don't forget.

Before being treated with soothing vitamins, the luxurious shadows in Tarte's TEN Limited-Edition Collector's Eye Shadow Palette ($44) are softly milled from natural mineral pigments for rich color payoff and silky application. The liners are infused with antioxidant-rich and free-radical fighting carnauba wax, shea butter, and cocoa seed butter. The deep black and plum are sure to complement every look. Housed in a refillable palette studded out to embody a little bubbly, this masterpiece is the perfect way to celebrate the last decade of Tarte's welcome existence. Here's a toast to the next TEN. Cheers!

Here are the shades in TEN.
  • Top row (L-R): matte soft pink, shimmering silver gray, soft shimmering gold, vibrant shimmering copper, vivid shimmering amethyst
  • Bottom row (L-R): shimmering deep plum, matte almost black, deep shimmering chocolate, deep shimmering forest green, vivid shimmering teal
  • Double-sided eyeliner: black and deep plum
How can you enter to win? 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, GFC, 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 in your comment 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.

You can earn a third entry by tweeting this contest. You must include "@BTiBeauty" (without the quotes) and the contest title in your tweet. Remember, tweet the contest title. I will tweet the contest in a few minutes, and you can simply retweet it to earn that second entry - if that's easier.

The deadline for entries will be Sunday, November 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 Monday morning. 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 may not be able to replace it with another prize just like it. 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.

For all the legalese related to this contest, please see the Contests/Sweepstakes page at the top of the blog. Good luck!

Liking the idea of black and plum in the eyeliners and that there is at least one matte shade.

Now if only I could adopt the principle of if something new comes in something old must leave.

Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.
