Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder Giveaway Contest

Bobbi Brown's soft matte, silky-smooth Bronzing Powder ($35) instantly gives the skin the look of a natural tan - or allows you to contour your face and neck naturally. Bobbi suggests using Bronzing Powder year-round to get a sun-kissed look. I know some women who don't leave home at any time of year without applying their favorite bronzer.

The shade Natural is, in my opinion, one that will work for everyone. It's described as a medium soft tan. Those with fair skin can use it lightly, while those with darker skin tones can build the coverage. It's a nice light brown with a touch of rose to keep it from looking muddy - exactly the color many of us tan naturally. Because it doesn't shimmer, it looks like you, not nice makeup.

If you win this contest, you can get a jump on summer and start using Natural Bronzing Powder now. Leave your friends guessing how you got that healthy coloring. Want to learn more? Check out this video at Bobbi Brown's Web site.

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 (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 10, 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!
