Aqualillies for Tarte Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder Giveaway Contest

Want to make waves in your beauty routine this summer? Dive into Tarte's limited-edition Amazonian Clay Finishing Face Powder ($29), inspired by the Aqualillies, America’s most glamorous synchronized swimming group. I have one to give away.

This soft, perfecting formula minimizes the appearance of pores, diffuses imperfections, and balances the skin for a natural, flawless finish. It's translucent and silky - a finishing powder that will keep your makeup in place without ever appearing chalky. Although it looks white int he pot, it will look like your skin when applied. It mattifies the skin by removing excess surface oil - a nice quality for summer. This powder can even be used alone as a treatment to reap all the benefits of Amazonian clay. Top your tan (faux, I hope) with it.

In case you don't know, Amazonian clay is a nutrient-rich clay extracted from the banks of the Amazon River, where the nutrients are at their highest concentration. As nature’s most perfect ingredient, this multitasking and total skin balancing clay has been known to remove surface oil and mattify skin, nourish all skin types, and give skin an overall smooth and even appearance. Tarte sustainably harvests this ingredient through cooperative partnerships in Brazil.

The Amazon river flows for 4,000 miles. As it flows, it collects highly nutritious plant and fruit matter. The clay gathers in the river’s basin, and the sun naturally bakes the clay, locking in the plant and fruit nutrients. Then it is shaved down to a finely milled powder and infused into Tarte products with other high-performance natural ingredients.

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. Today's contest winner did not provide any contact information, so I had to go to the next draw.

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, June 1, 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!

Being a fan of Chanel's micro-crystalline powder (I bought six when I discovered it was being discontinued), I am eager to see if this product is comparable, since my stash will soon run out.

Thanks for the opportunity to win it!
