Aqualillies for Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Eye and Cheek Palette Giveaway Contest

The centerpiece of Tarte's magnificent Aqualillies Collection for Summer 2013, inspired by and named after the talented and glamorous Aqualillies synchronized water ballet team, is the Aqualillies for Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Eye and Cheek Palette ($38) - now sold out at Tarte, but still available at Sephora. It looked pretty when I first saw it in Tarte's press release. It's even prettier in person. This palette is a stunner - one of the best-ever from Tarte (I think).


Here's a link to my feature. You can see swatches of this palette in all its deliciousness. I knew this palette would be a knockout, so I bought an extra to give away when I bought mine. That helped me increase my total order to receive the tote gift with purchase (which I really wanted for its color).

Check out my feature, or admire the contents in this list.
  • Amazonian Clay Shimmering Powder in Champagne
  • Amazonian Clay Mineral Powder Bronzer in Park Ave Princess
  • Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Captivating
  • Amazonian Clay Eyeshadows in Hammock, Bikini, Barefoot, Parasol, Sun Deck, and Poolside
Remember, when you use Tarte cosmetics, you will be using makeup that is free of parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, tricolsan, sodium lauryl sulfate, and synthetic fragrances - no hormone distruptors. Tarte is cruelty-free too.


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 11, 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.

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