Tarte Glosssed Over PureOptic Lipgloss Collection Giveaway Contest

I'm a loyal Tarte customer. I really love Tarte's makeup. The colors are great, and the purity of the ingredients hooked me long ago. When I saw the new, limited-edition, online-only Glossed Over PureOptic Lipgloss Collection ($29.50), I flipped.  Figuring you might too, I ordered two sets - one for me and one for one of you.

This new PureOptic Collection is a multi-chromatic set of eight long-wearing lip glosses, designed to give dry lips the kiss-off with multi-chromatic color. Each shade features Tarte’s proprietary PureOptic complex of 24 pure pigments blended together to achieve rich, vivid, complex, and long-wearing color that applies smoothly and won’t fade away. Always hydrating and never drying, each must-have shade will keep lips moisturized to help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to give lips a fuller, plumped-up appearance.

The set contains eight 0.04 oz PureOptic Lipgloss shades in Nectar, Nude, Pink Blush, Coral, Warm Pink, Nude Pink, Mauve, and Berry. They are all lovely - and free of parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, and other things you don't really want to ingest.

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. I can't believe the number of entrants I haven't been able to find in the past.

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, June 9, 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!
