Bobbi Brown Party Shimmer Brick Giveaway Contest

Congratulations to Escritora!
In a departure from the bands of stripes we've come to love in our Shimmer Bricks, Bobbi Brown's Party Shimmer Brick ($40) features only two glamorous shades: gold and silver. The high-luster combo of silver and gold will brighten your face and give you a sparking glow.

This piece was the centerpiece of the Party Time Collection for Holiday 2011, and I was lucky to score one for this contest at the Estée Lauder Company Store last week. The pure gold and silver shades can be used on the eyes or face - and can be used alone or blended. Gold and silver should never be confined to the winter holidays. I wear them year round.

How can you enter to win this Shimmer Brick 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, July 14, 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 once worked for Estee Lauder and I can honestly say that whil many people claim that cosmetics is all marketing, this is one family where the quality shines through on every single product.

Thank you for the great opportunity!

This would be gorgeous worn just as a highlighter, or I can see a dab in the center of my lower lip: maybe silver on pink gloss or the gold on a bronzy gloss. Nice giveaway!
