Sunday Riley Blush Giveaway Contest

Sunday Riley's Blush ($30) is a universally flattering blush that will leave your cheeks with a sun-kissed radiance. I have one to give away in the shade Blushing, a light dusty rose.

This blush contains round-shaped pigments that (apparently) have a silky feel and diffuse light for natural, luminous cheek color. It's paraben-free too. Beyond that, I can tell you that Sunday Riley Blush applies beautifully and layers seamlessly, becoming one with the skin. The compacts are classier than the eye color compacts. The compacts have average heft in the hand, the Sunday Riley logo and name in gold on the cover, and nice mirrors inside the flip-up cover. They even come with a luxury, signature velveteen pouch.

One thing you'll find with this line is minimal hype. I have Honest and Intimate - love them - and I think I purchased Blushing to try it when Sephora first started carrying the line. Realizing this week that it was still waiting to be tried, I decided to give one of you that opportunity.

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.

You can earn a fourth entry if you have posted a comment here in the last two weeks. Don't worry about telling me. I'll know.

The deadline for entries will be Saturday, May 4, 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.

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

Great giveaway - Sunday Riley is not a brand I have access to in Ireland and beauty addicts always want something they can't have! :D

It's so generous of you to make this a giveaway especially as this shade seems tailor made for your coloring. I have the shade Honest which is peachy so I'd love to have Blushing as its pink partner. Now if I could just decipher the word in the box that proves I'm not a robot!

Oh this is perfect--absolutely perfect! I have yet to try anything from Sunday Riley but I hear such great things about the blushes and shadows all the time. Blushing and Honest have actually been at the top of my list for a while, but I keep getting sidetracked by other items (and lately, EVERYTHING from the summer collections :P). Beautiful blush though--thanks for this great opportunity CG! :D

Blushes always look so fun to play around with, but I have yet to find one that I can use without looking like I ran a marathon. Even the lightest of hands does that to me :(
