Chanel Sky Line Les Vernis Giveaway Contest from the Blue Illusion de Chanel Collection

It's a holiday weekend, and I'm in the mood to hold a second giveaway contest to celebrate. Chanel's new, limited-edition Blue Illusion de Chanel Collection is available at Chanel.com. I purchased Sky Line for one of you, and the gorgeous Precision Eye Definer for myself. I tried to order the Long Wear Luminious Eye Shadow in Apparition, but it had sold out.

Les Vernis in Sky Line ($30) makes me dream of a few September days at the ocean. I haven't seen it in person, but its description grabbed me.

Pale and pearlescent, nearly metallic. This new, uniquely elegant nail shade brings the beauty of blue down to the fingertips.

I have one Sky Line to give away. 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 early this evening, and you can simply retweet it to earn that second entry - if that's easier.

The deadline for entries will be Saturday, September 8, 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 rarely wear nail polish but this polish is so gorgeous, I would wear it in a heartbeat. It's the perfect color, very versatile, not too light or too dark, just perfect. Thank you for always finding the most special products for your reviews and giveaways.

Good luck to all.

bisbee said...

I don't tweet...and all of those ways to enter just confuse me(which is why I hardly ever enter these types of contests). Just wanted to say I also wanted to order that shadow...maybe we can find it elsewhere?

Charleston Girl said...

Bisbee,

You are entered just by commenting. :)

I pre-ordered at NM. They seem to think they are going to get it mid-September. Another way is to call one of the Chanel boutiques. New York has a few, and Las Vegas Bellagio has a great one.
