Le Métier de Beauté Red Velvet Lip Crème Giveaway Contest

Le Métier de Beauté's exclusive gift with purchase at the Neiman Marcus Beauty Event is a Red Velvet Lip Crème. If you spend $125 during Neiman Marcus Beauty Event (February 23 to March 4), you will receive Red Velvet (unless they run out of stock).

Red Velvet is bright and very red. While I've never been comfortable with red lip color, I've received so many compliments when I've worn Red Velvet, I may have to change my outlook. If I can wear it, you can too. Because it's a Lip Crème, it is sheer and glossy. Quite an attention getter!

I've worn it "straight up," topped with a golden gloss, and as a stain, topped with various glosses. I learned the makeup artist "stain" trick from Dustin Lujan, who knows that red phobes like me can wear vibrant lip colors as stains. With Red Velvet, you simply apply it, blot it with a tissue, then use a red-toned gloss over the stain. It's a terrific look! You can see straight-up swatches of Red Velvet here.

I ended up with two Red Velvets, thanks to the generosity of my Neiman Marcus Le Métier de Beauté friends, so I decided it would be fun to share one with a reader through a giveaway. How can you enter to win 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 bestthingsinbeautycontests@gmail.com (the contest address, not my "personal" e-mail) 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). Please make sure I have your e-mail. If I can't notify you, you can't win - even if your number is drawn.

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 this evening, and you can simply retweet it to earn that second entry - if that's easier.

The deadline for entries will be Saturday, March 3, at midnight. The next morning, I will use a random number generator (random.org) 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.

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

I think this is a special "Oscar Night" beauty giveaway! I think I've mentioned about a million times that I've never tried Le Metier (which is my last uncharted territory, since I've purchase both Ellis Faas and Edward Bess!), so if I don't win, I'll just be forced to go out and purchase! lol...
