Tarte Baby It's Bold Outside Giveaway Contest Plus Bonus Gift

Tarte's Baby It's Bold Outside Set ($39 for a $144 value) was another very popular holiday set offered by Tart.  With the same snazzy purple and gold packaging as last week's contest gift, this set for the eyes is hot.

I'm sorry the sun picked up the clear plastic window of the box. I assure you, it's not clouded or wavy. I looked for a better photo at Tarte and Sephora online, but didn't find one because the set sold out so quickly.

Baby It's Bold Outside includes five full-sized SmolderEYES Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liners in these colors.
  • Ash Violet
  • Rainforest Black
  • Champagne
  • Gunmetal
  • Gold
It also includes a SmolderEYES sharpener and a full-sized skinny SmolderEYES Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liner in Onyx. You may never need an eyeliner again.

You know Tarte is a good-for-you line, formulated without parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, and synthetic fragrances. It's perfect for application near your eyes.

Like last week's giveaway set, Baby It's Bold Outside was snapped up in a hurry. Fortunately, I ordered one to give away over the holidays, but then somehow forgot about it. My memory loss then, your gain now. I am giving one of these extraordinary, seasonless sets 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, March 2, 2013, 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.

Now for the bonus. The winner of this contest will receive the gift samples that come in the Beauty Event bag from Neiman Marcus - with conditions. There are fragrance samples among the contents. I cannot send them outside the United States (I'm not supposed to send them here either). If the winner lives in the U.S., I will include a complete set. If the winner does not live in the U.S., I will have to remove the fragrance samples. Shippers, particularly the United Kingdom's Royal Mail, have been confiscating and destroying fragrances they discover in parcels. There are newly enacted and enforced regulations that are driving everyone who loves perfume into a frenzy.

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

Eyeliners! Yay!
(I follow you by email)

These shipping regulations for perfume are driving me crazy! Where I live (the jungle)one can't even find Chanel Allure or Dior Addict, so how can a Serge Lutens and Amouage girl like me survive without decants?
O tempore, o mores....
