Benefit POWda WOWza Giveaway Contest

Congratulations to Szappanbubi!

Benefit combined their famous face powders together in a single, limited-edition POWda WOWza portable box ($28). The limited-edition "box o’ powder" adds a holiday glow with CORALista, a coral-pink cheek powder; Hoola bronzing powder; and Bella Bamba, a 3D brightening pink face powder. You can use the mini-brush included for unstoppable gorgeous on the go, or use your own blush brush when you're at home. It's a handy set with pretty colors!

I have one POWda WOWza to give away. How can you enter this 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 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, 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 in just a few minutes, and you can simply retweet it to earn that second entry - if that's easier.

The deadline for entries will be Saturday, December 31, New Year's Eve, at midnight. On New Year's Day, I will use a random number generator ( 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. Lately, my shipping luck has improved significantly.

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

You really do know what are the "best things in beauty" :)
I've been interested in this little blush kit since spotting it in the holiday collections. I've never tried Benefit blushes before and well... if I don't part with this (my cousin would love it) it would be a great addition to my little makeup collection.

Happy Holidays! I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas with friends and family.

(I've emailed you my details & completed all 3 entries.)

I'm really not familiar with products from Benefit but after viewing this little blush compact, my interest has been peeked. It''s adorable and the perfect size to put in your purse for touch ups throughout the day and night. Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and that Santa was good to you.

Good Luck to All and thank you Charlestongirl for a fabulous year of reviews, introducing your fans to a host of new brands and products, your giveaways and your friendship. You're the best!
