Edward Bess All Over Seduction in Afterglow Giveaway Contest

Congratulations to Lovethescents!
All Over Seduction ($38), an illuminator by genius beauty guru Edward Bess, magically creates naturally luminous skin and a radiant complexion. With its incredibly smooth finish, you can use All Over Seduction to highlight the eyes, cheeks, and lips for a glowing look that's lit from within.

The formula's light-reflecting pigments optically enhance the skin for an incredibly radiant complexion and impart a dewy veil of luminosity that lasts all day. It's available in two shades: Sunlight (champagne) and Afterglow (golden). It was one of the first Edward Bess purchases I ever made, and it was responsible for hooking me on Edward's luxurious makeup.

I have one All Over Seduction in Afterglow - the golden shade, perfect for summer - to give away. 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, April 7, 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!

I LOVE Edward Bess and his entire product line! Mr. Bess was my birthday slurge last September. I don't need to be entered, as I have this product. What I love the most about his products is that, with few exceptions, there is very little glitz or glimmer. There is shimmer. Too much metallic can be againg to a woman of my age. AND, too much metallic can make a younger woman appear not sophisticated. I think Edward Bess covers all ages. I follow via email....this and other of his makeup make me, in my 60s, look fantastic and I assure you, I am complimented often, in ways that count...such as 'wow, you look good today, or rested, or whatever, but not so much 'your makeup is great' as MY Edward Bess face draws attention to me....Good luck to anyone who wins this sweepstakes, but more, try to see and sample his products.

I learned of EB on your website and i'm yet to try any of his product. Would love to be the winner for Afterglow, especially for Summer.

Mamavalveeta03 said...

I just bought a "haul" of EB from a wholesale website. I got the compact rouge in "Island Rose", the gloss in "Endless Love" and the lip definer pencil. I am loving the rouge and the gloss stays on well, although it's a little too pinky for me so I layer it over lipstick. But otherwise, EB is a new favorite brand for me. His aesthetic is beautiful!!

I became a HUGE Edward Bess fan again through your blog and I have several of his products, which are all gorgeous. The colors are all magnificent, sure to get plenty of comments from friends and strangers. They slide on your lips like silk and they have great staying power and vibrancy. I also use the lip glosses in the same container as the afterglow both for my lips and mu cheeks, a two in one product. And they really do last forever for a little truly goes a long way. I love Edward Bess products and am thrilled that we can now purchase these babies at Sephora as well as Neiman Marcus and Bergdorfs. Thank you for this chance to possibly win this beautiful highlighter. And Good Luck To All.
