Violet Underground Pure Color 5-Color EyeShadow Palette ($48) offers a high-style mix to inspire creative blending, highlighting, and color accenting. The versatile palette allows you to play with intensities, express different attitudes, and mix and blend shades.
The Pure Color palette holds varying color intensities and finishes. The matte, satin, shimmer, and metallic finishes deliver high-pigment and high-impact effects. The long-wearing formula adheres without creasing, blends easily, and comes in a sleek, mirrored compact with an applicator.
Violet Underground is the centerpiece of Estée Lauder's Fall 2012 Collection. It's so pretty, I felt compelled to mark Best Things in Beauty's third anniversary (which actually occurred in June) with two contests this week. Even if you can't wear the magenta shade on your eyes, you'll find color combinations to love if you win.
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 later today, and you can simply retweet it to earn that second entry - if that's easier.
The deadline for entries will be Saturday, August 4, 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!
