NARS Foreplay Cheek Palette Giveaway Contest

Foreplay ($49) from NARS is a limited-edition, chic cheek palette featuring four dazzling shades based on the bestselling Orgasm blush. The gorgeous afterglow of classic Orgasm is reinvented in this quad that combines Orgasm blush plus vivid shades of pink and peach and a shimmering gold to create your own signature glow.

Here's what you'll find in the mirrored compact.
  • Peach Matte Blush
  • Gold Highlighting Blush
  • Pink Matte Blush
  • Orgasm Blush (peachy pink with golden shimmer)
Think of all the looks you can create! Mix and match or blend, you'll have fun it you win this one.

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 25, 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 think NARS makes some of the best blushes around. I love that you can choose a bright, intense color but it ends up looking soft on your cheeks.

Dlori said...

When I initially saw this palette, as much as I love NARS, I wasn't sure I would love it. That is until yesterday, when I stopped into a Sephora for what was supposed to be only a few minutes. 4 hours later, as I was leaving the store, this palette was in the last display case by the exit door. It was so beautiful, I had to stop and play around with the colors. It really took my breath away. NARS did it again. In my opinion, this palette is a winner.

Thank you for another terrific giveaway. I think this palette will work for anyone who's lucky enough to win it because the colors are so versatile. Good luck to all!
