Bobbi Brown Bare to Bold Eye Palette Giveaway Contest

The Bobbi Brown Bare to Bold Eye Shadow Palette ($45) was available only at QVC, but I found a few pieces at the Estée Lauder Company Store in Leesburg, Virginia. It was originally an Asia-exclusive.

The palette offers six eye shadows and a dual-ended eye shadow brush/eyeliner brush. Bare to Bold was designed by Bobbi to give you a subtle, neutral look for day and a bold, sparkling look for evening. I have one, and I love it.

Here are the shades in Bare to Bold, followed by instructions from Bobbi herself.
  • Navajo Eye Shadow
  • Cement Eye Shadow
  • Champagne Quartz Metallic Eye Shadow
  • Quarry Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow
  • Evergreen Sparkle Eye Shadow
  • Caviar Eye Shadow
For a bare look...
Sweep Navajo eye shadow as a base color from the lash line to the brow bone using the eye shadow brush. Then, dust Cement eye shadow as a medium color on the lower lid up to the crease. For a pop of color, sweep Champagne Quartz into the inner corner to reflect light.

For a bold look...
Sweep Navajo eye shadow as a base color from the lash line to the brown bone using the eye shadow brush. Dampen the brush and apply Champagne Quartz into inner corner of the eye. Then, take Evergreen Sparkle eye shadow into the middle of the eye and blend well. Next, create an outer V to smoke out the eye with Quarry Shimmer Wash eye shadow. Pick up Caviar eye shadow onto the eyeliner side of the brush and line the upper and lower lash lines.

How can you enter to win 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 (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.

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 this evening, and you can simply retweet it to earn that second entry - if that's easier.

The deadline for entries will be Saturday, March 24, at midnight. The next morning, 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.

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

Navajo and Cement are 2 Bobbi Brown shadows that are SO easy to use and go with absolutely everything. Love it! Don't know if in real life it looks like this, but the Evergreen Sparkle eyeshadow is showing up a little teal-ish in the photo. Perfect for spring/summer to add brightness to an otherwise neutral look! Thanks Charleston Girl-amazing giveaway!

Dlori said...

This is an incredibly gorgeous palette by Bobby Brown. But why does she always make palettes where there is one color that is stunning, a color that I and most people would purchase if it was a single? I love the green'Aqua color that shimmers and would love to see that as part of her regular collection on it's own. The other colors in the palette are beautiful as well but for me, the star color of this palette is the aqua/green.

Thank you for offering your fans the chance to win another very generous and very beautiful Bobbi Brown Palette. Good Luck To All!
