Shine Eye Shades ($30) are supremely light-textured eye shadows with a wonderful pearlescent glow. New technology allows for the incorporation of a high density of tiny particles of real pearl into the color pigments, creating a crease-proof consistency. I have one in Star Sapphire to give away.
Worn on its own, it washes the skin with a film of liquid shine. Shine Eye Shade also mixes easily with matte shadows for a more muted effect. Chantecaille's products are cruelty-free, without any animal or mineral derivatives.
I'm running this giveaway contest differently from the way I used to run them, so please read carefully. In order to enter, you must already be a subscriber to Best Things in Beauty (though Google +, a subscription service, Twitter, or feed as of yesterday) or have commented in the last two months. If you meet either one of those two criteria, please leave a comment here to enter.
If you don't have a subscription that I can track and you win, I will ask you to show me proof of subscription, for example, an e-mail notifying you of a daily post. I can see if you list Best Things in Beauty on your Google favorites list, but there are many services I cannot track, such as Feedly.
Why am I doing it this way? Because, as I explained months ago, I want to reward my regular readers with giveaways, not professional contest "people."
You don't need to tweet this contest after you enter. In fact, I'd prefer that you not. That way, the word will go out only to those who see this feature.
After you comment here, feel free to send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org (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.
The deadline for entries will be Saturday, December 7, at midnight. I will use a random number generator (random.org) to select the winner on Sunday and e-mail the winner on that day. 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. If the product is lost or stolen in transit, I may not be able to replace it. 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! Please remember that I am now moderating comments. It could be awhile before yours appears.
