Stila Love at First Blush Giveaway Contest

Congratulations to Stephanie Gladden!
Stila makeup always makes me happy, so I did a mental happy dance when I saw the limited-edition Love At First Blush Set ($20) at Sephora. What a value! The set contains an adorable multicolored powder blush paired with two deluxe-sized Lip Glazes - one in Bubble Gum and the other in Pinkle Twinkle. The names may be cutesy, but the colors are delightful.

The blush, embossed with hearts in three ultra-wearable muted shades of pink, offers a micro-fine powder with a velvety smooth finish and subtle shimmer for a natural looking blush. I have this blush, and I love it. After you apply your blush, brush on one of Stila's Lip Glaze shades for high shine and understated color to complete your spring look.

I have one set 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 (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 don't, I can't notify you, which means 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, February 11, at midnight. The next morning, 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.

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

I have always loved these lippies. I think because Jeannine Lobell was the original creator of the unique Stila line, and I was into "ER," in which Anthony Edwards (her husband) starred. Plus, those "Stila girl" illustrations were so cute!
