Benefit High Flyin' Lip Glosses Set Giveaway Contest

When Benefit's Ultra Plush Lip Glosses were introduced a few months ago, I bought five of the six colors, planning to give one away. I love them! Now, Benefit has created a limited-edition set, High Flyin' Glosses ($26), containing all six of these gorgeous lip glosses in a "mini" size. They are nicely sized minis.

The set of glosses will keep you looking sexy at any altitude. It includes six irresistible shades, from sultry nudes to punchy pinks - all sheer and shiny. The luxuriously plush formula glides on perfectly smoothly, thanks to the easy-squeeze tube and custom tip.

The set includes six 0.22-oz Lip Glosses in Coralista, Dallas, Bellabamba, HOOLA, Sugarbomb, Dandelion - there isn't a dud among them. They match Benefit's amazingly popular blushes. To create a beautifully pulled-together look in seconds, you can pair your favorite gloss with its complementing box o’ powder.

You can see my swatch of four of the shades at this link. You'll see that they are very sheer. That's what I like about them. I can apply them on the go, without a mirror, and end up with perfectly juicy lips in a hearbeat.

Now, one of you will get to experience the lovely look and feel of these Benefit glosses - in all the shades. I love them - hope you will too.

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, October 27, 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.

The winner must be able to provide me with a "mailable address," meaning the U.S. Post Office recognizes it or its street, province, and other "elements" the way the winner provides them. I've had some trouble with both U.S. and international addresses lately.

For all the legalese related to this contest, please see the Contests/Sweepstakes page at the top of the blog. Good luck!
