YSL Effect Faux Cils Crème d'Eyeliner Giveaway Contest (Jade Black)

This little pot of heaven found an instant fan base when it was introduced. YSL's Effect Faux Cils Crème d'Eyeliner ($28) intensifies the eye with a spectacular, long-lasting line. The soft and silky texture applies smoothly without skipping and lasts on the lid all day without flaking or creasing. It's smudgeproof, waterproof, and provides 24-hour wear.

There were two colors in this collection that made everyone's must-have list: Jade Black (No. 6) and Cherry Black (No. 5). I have one Jade Black to give away - one of the prettiest green eyeliners I've ever seen. I purchased it for a giveaway and then forgot about it. Maybe I subconsciously wanted to keep it, but I've still got plenty left in my own jar. I featured it at this link, with photos taken at Neiman Marcus. You might also want to check out The Non-Blonde's love note to her favorite green eyeliner.

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 25, 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!

I've been wanting to try those eyeliners since they came out but just can't justify the purchase. I have enough gel liners to last a lifetime - or until they dry out and become unusable! I follow by email, Twitter, GFC, and G+.
