Giorgio Armani Beauty Eyes to Kill Mascara Giveaway Contest - Limited-Edition Brown

Since its introduction, Giorgio Armani Beauty's Eyes to Kill Mascara has taken the world by storm. A limited-edition Brown shade (#2) was introduced this year. It was so popular, it sold out. You are unlikely to find any remaining at Armani Cosmetics counters. Luckily, I have one Brown shade to give away (Black is shown in the photo here)!

Dress the eye with powerful, plush, voluminous lashes. Fine, fluid Microfil technology creates intensely captivating lash texture. Micro-waxes combined with a “fineness agent” allow for smooth and easy application, revealing weightless volume.

If you don't know about Eyes to Kill, you should. It applies easily, carrying the color all the way to the tips to lengthen in one fell swoop, adds a realistic "body" to the lashes, separates the lashes, never flakes off or smudges, leaves no clumps behind, and lasts all day. For many women, it has become a must-have-at-all-times mascara. This limited-edition brown shade is so cool, I'd like to have it.

How can you enter to win? All you really have to do is leave a comment on this feature. After you comment here, feel free to send me an e-mail at 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).

You can earn extra entries. Follow this blog (through an e-mail subscription or though one of the many Google readers - see sidebar at right) to earn a second entry. 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. One easy way is to follow by e-mail subscription or to ensure that Best Things in Beauty is on your blog list if you have a Google account.

You can earn a third entry by tweeting this contest. Just make sure to include "@BTiBeauty" (without the quotes) and the contest title in your tweet. I will tweet the contest soon, and you can simply retweet it to earn that second entry. Only one tweet will be counted as an entry. I appreciate multiple tweets, but it's not necessary.

The deadline for entries will be Saturday, October 1, at midnight. The next day, I will use a random number generator ( to select the winner. I will e-mail the winner on Sunday. 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 won't be able to replace it with another. 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. Lately, my shipping luck has improved significantly.

Good luck!

P.S. This is not the waterproof Eyes to Kill Mascara. It is a new, unused, full-sized tester and will be sent to the winner without a mascara box.
