Sephora Favorites Glitz & Glam Party Sampler Giveaway Contest

This contest has ended. Congratulations to MamaVal!
Another dazzling makeup collection, Sephora's Glitz & Glam Party Sampler ($45) features nine of Sephora’s most glittering products, along with a chic metallic clutch. I have one to give away, so I made it the Best Things in Beauty Cyber Monday contest.

Perfect for the holidays, this kit has a gorgeous assortment of festive products to create any party-ready look, including three full-size products. Take it all anywhere you go in the included distressed metallic zippered clutch.

What comes in the set?
  • 0.09 oz Stila Duo Shimmer Powder in Kitten
  • 0.018 oz Laura Mercier Baked Eye Color - Wet/Dry in Black Karat
  • 0.02 oz bareMinerals Eyecolor in Good Fortune
  • 0.125 oz SEPHORA by OPI Nail Colour in Looks Like Rain Dear
  • 0.11 oz Josie Maran GOGO Instant Natural Volume Argan Mascara in Black
  • 1 oz NARS Body Glow
  • 0.17 oz Lorac 3D Liquid Lustre Gold
  • 0.15 oz Bare Escentuals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Trail Blazer
  • 0.01 oz Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Starfish 
This contest will run along with the Laura Mercier Flawless Face Book posted earlier. 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, December 1, 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!
