Bobbi Brown 24 Karat Shimmer Brick Giveaway Contest

Bobbi Brown's limited-edition 24 Karat Shimmer Brick ($24) provides five bars of pearlescent shimmer that highlight the skin for a lit-from-within glow. Each bar also doubles up as an eye shadow - a feature that makes all Shimmer Bricks treasures.

You can see my feature, with swatches at this link. The gorgeous gold, when blended, is radiant on my skin. The shade is almost rose gold. The two pink/rose-toned stripes of color add a rose hue to the gold. The result isn't exactly rose gold (like Bobbi's Rose Gold Shimmer Brick), but it leans pleasantly in that direction. I'm very "fond" of this Shimmer Brick - so fond I decided to give one 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 winners 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, November 17, 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!

Just have to share this with you: I bought the new fall LMDB eye kit, Nouvelle Vague. This is the one with the powerful, mind-of-its-own black shade. I was horrified the first time I tried it. Then today I decided to try it again and the results are noteworthy. Noteworthy? Is that all I can come up with? They are spectacular! I look so good I am going out for dinner. Wow. Wow! It's all in the application, using the black shade as a liner and smudger, and in doing a little cat eye trick with the black shade, too, for a bit of depth. Wow. Wow! I think LMDB is my favorite. I look so good I felt brave enough to show my husband my 17 LMDB kits. At a 100 bucks each, that spells brave!
