NARS Multiple Duo in Orgasm/South Beach Giveaway Contest

One of my favorite NARS products - if not my absolute favorite - is the Multiple. I purchase every one that comes along - even if it doesn't appear right for me. I'll always find a use for these creamy do-everything shades. When NARS introduced the Multiple Duos, I thought I'd found buried treasure. Two shades in one compact that can be tucked easily into my oversized (of late) handbag and go anywhere with me for an eye, cheek, or lip touch-up.

Each chic shade pairing can create countless combinations of healthy flushes and gentle shimmering effects anywhere you need them. The easily blendable formula makes for mistake-proof application. The sheer finish is as perfect as it gets. I decided I'd give away the Orgasm/South Beach Multiple Duo ($45) as a special treat for this week's giveaway contest. I'll also spill the beans that we will have another Chanel flash giveaway this week, courtesy of Georgia, Loyd, and Maria at Saks.

Tracy Silva, Lead Trainer at NARS, recommends that you Highlight the cheekbone with the lighter shade and warm the cheeks, temple, and nose with the deeper color.We all know that Orgasm has to be the most heralded blush on earth, so use it not only as a highlighter, but also to give you a happy face. South Beach works as a great bronzer for any skin tone and will allow you to chisel those cheekbones. I think the "live" product is ever-so-slightly lighter than the shades depicted by the NARS photo above.

How can you enter to win this giveaway contest (technically a sweepstakes)? I have one Multiple Duo to give away. 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 15, 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!

Stay tuned for more giveaways this month. It's holiday time - a great time for gifts!
