Chantecaille Poudre de Perle in Akoya Pearl Giveaway Contest

Akoya Pearl is Chantecaille's newest Poudre de Perle ($58) shade. Created exclusively for Christopher Kane's Spring/Summer 2012 runway models, Poudre de Perle in Akoya Pearl is a bright rose-pink color that creates a fresh, windswept flush on any complexion. The rosy pink shade looks cheerful.

Prior shades of Poudre de Perle have delivered an innovative all-over highlighting formula. Akoya Pearl is a blush - an exquisite brush. Like its sisters, it arrives with its own brush (unless you buy just the refill) and delivers the perfect amount of luminosity to all skin tones. The smart formula replaces traditional talc particles with weightless, silky, and translucent optics that ensure skin clarity and luminosity. Particles of zinc, iron, and mica provide mineral content to calm our sensitive skin and fortify it from environmental elements.

If you'd like to see my original feature on Akouya Pearl, with swatch photos, click here. It adds radiant pink color to my cheeks and makes me look happy and perky. It doesn't get better than that. That's why I decided to purchase one for a giveaway contest.

How can you enter to win this giveaway 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, August 18, 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!

Dlori said...

Because of you and your wonderful reviews of Chantecaille products, I've become a huge Chantecaille fan. If I had the funds, I would take 3 of everything. I look forward to every season's new collection and it seems that their products seem to get more beautiful, if that's possible. I am especially looking forward to the fall 2012 palette and blush. I am a HUGE supporter of saving animals particularly the Big Cats, elephants, Orangutans, etc. and although Chantecaille gives I believe 5% of the proceeds of their products to organizations that support the preservation of wildlife, I think it's wonderful that they are concerned and active in this arena. I love this blush and leave it to Chantecaille to have a blush already inside a blush brush with a cover, so it can easily be thrown into your handbag for touch ups when needed without ever creating a mess. The color is gorgeous and I've loved this blush when I first laid eyes on it. This is a fabulous giveaway, just as all your contests are but this one really is very special. Thank you again for always thinking of your many fans, loving us as much as we all love you.

Thank you as well for this giveaway opportunity. I checked the review and I'm relieved to read Chantecaille's brush is superior to the rough brushes typical of this style of applicator.
