Guerlain Ombré Éclat 1 Couleur Single Eyeshadow Giveaway Contest

Congratulations to Ava!
Guerlain's Ombré Éclat 1 Couleur Fards à Paupières ($34) is the largest single eye shadow product on the market - more than ample product in one compact. Intense and long-lasting colors allow for light and delicate eye makeup when applied lightly or a more sophisticated, dramatic effect when the color is built or blended - always with an impeccable finish. Guerlain's luxury shadows are available in many different shades to collect and match according to your mood. I have one in L'Instant Fleuri (#161) to give away.

This gilded lavender shadow looks bold in the pan but goes on sheer. According to Real Simple, it flatters anyone, it really plays up the colors in brown and green eyes.

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 11, 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!

Hi, Charlestongirl -
I have made it a daily (and nightly) habit to read your blog and I must say that my most recent makeup purchases have been as a happy result of your reviews. I am new to the Guerlain product line (love my Meteorites and primer!) and I would like to try out the single eyeshadows. If it's anything like my Les Gris palette then I know this giveaway will be as lovely. By the way I just started following you on my email.

Sherry said...

I am generally a "neutrals girl", but this shade is so gorgeous that I would definitely wear it often and with pride! From looking at your picture of the shade, it is a jewel-tone yet there seems to be a softness about it; this really increases the wearability for me. Love it! Thank you, CG; you always truly find the best for us!
