Sephora Favorites Glitz & Glam Giveaway Contest

Congratulations to Christina Dragan!
How beautifully selected does a deluxe sampler set get? Expertly in the case of Sephora's limited-edition Glitz & Glam deluxe makeup sampler ($40). I have one to give away. This purchase was an instance of "one for me, one for them" while I was shopping on day. I love these carefully edited sets.

This dazzling makeup collection contains 10 of Sephora's most shimmering products, all of which will leave you positively luminous. There are even three full-sized products in the set. This collection is the perfect starter kit for anyone who wants to up her glamour quotient - or try some new makeup. It includes an array of gorgeous, gleaming beauties - and items from some of my favorite brands, like Benefit, Tarte, Stila, and Ultraflesh!
  • 0.13 oz Benefit High Beam
  • 0.12 oz Buxom Stay-There Eyeshadow in Pug (smoky pewter)
  • 0.02 oz Bare Escentuals bareMinerals All Over Color in Glee (soft mauve plum)
  • 0.07 oz Sephora Collection Eye Shadow in Starry Sky 07 (black with silver glitter)
  • 0.125 oz Sephora by OPI Nail Colour in Charge It! (opaque metallic 24k gold)
  • 0.24 oz Tarte Celebutante Dry Oil Shimmer (champagne)
  • 0.07 oz Josie Maran Argan Oil Illuminizer (light bronze)
  • 0.10 oz Tarina Tarantino Sparklicity Gloss in Paiette (sheer light pink with iridescent shimmer)
  • 0.12 oz Ultraflesh Gold Standard Mascara in black
  • 0.08 oz Stila Lip Glaze in Vanilla (pearly nude)
The winnner's going to glow! 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 21, 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!

Sherry said...

My life could definitely use a little glitz right about now; I'm feeling extremely down due to the anniversary of my eldest daughter's death this month. (Sorry if I bummed anyone out, but I don't have much of a support group around me and this really preys on my mind). Thank you for another great giveaway, CG, and I will keep both you and your mother in my thoughts and prayers. I lost my own mother exactly two weeks to the day after my 29-year-old daughter's death. Although my mom was 92, I was completely reeling from the losses being so close together. That was in 2001, and sometimes it still seems as tho it just happened. I'm sorry; please forgive me for using what was supposed to be a contest entry as a sounding board for my personal problems. It's just a little difficult to keep my head straight right now! Thank you for listening.
