NARS Sea of Love Giveaway Contest

Congratulations and Merry Christmas to Sarah!
NARS Sea of Love ($49) is a collection of beautifully sophisticated NARS cult classic shades. This set features Laguna Illuminator, which gives the complexion a lit-from-within bronzed glow. Super Orgasm delights the cheeks in a shimmering flush, while Turkish Delight lends lips the perfect pink pout. The ultimate multitasker, Multiple in Orgasm, (one of my favorites) provides a glow for eyes, cheeks, or lips.

Here's what's in Sea of Love. It's a nicely edited set.
  • 0.14 oz mini The Multiple in Orgasm (peachy pink shimmer)
  • 0.12 oz mini Blush in Super Orgasm (peachy pink with gold glitter)
  • 0.14 oz mini Lip Gloss in Turkish Delight (pink sorbet)
  • 1.1 oz full sized Illuminator in Laguna (brown with golden shimmer)

I have one Sea of Love to give away. How can you enter this contest (technically a sweepstakes)? Just leave a comment on this feature (not in another BTiB post). After you comment here, feel free to send me an e-mail at 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 - if you don't, that entry won't count. I will tweet the contest early this evening, and you can simply retweet it to earn that second entry - if that's easier.

The deadline for entries will be Saturday, December 24, Christmas Eve, at midnight. On Christmas day, I will use a random number generator ( to select the winner. I will e-mail the winner on Sunday 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!

Note: The prize will be sent it to the winner the week after Christmas.
