Bobbi Brown Wild Rose Shimmer Brick Compact Giveaway Contest

Bobbi Brown's new, lust-worthy Rose Gold Collection for Spring 2012 featured two stunning Shimmer Bricks. It was a feast for those like me who ha been awaiting a new Shimmer Bricks. I featured the limited-edition Wild Rose Shimmer Brick ($39) in January.  If you missed it, pop over to this link.I had difficulty getting photos at the time, but they will give you a clue to the gorgeous pink glow Wild Rose creates. Anyhow, I have one to give away.

Handmade in Italy, this award-winning editor's favorite highlights skin with five bars of pearlescent shimmer. You can apply the Shimmer Bricks over blush. My skin is so pale, I often skip the blush and just wear the Wild Rose Shimmer Brick. Try wearing Wild Rose both ways to decide whether you need the additional color a blush will provide. Each bar in the compact also doubles up as eye shadow.

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. I can't believe the number of entrants I haven't been able to find in the past.

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, June 2, 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!

P.S. I did an one-day trip to New York yesterday, taking Amtrak up and back. I shopped with The Non-Blonde, and we both attended a party at MiN New York featuring Sergio Momo, creator of Xerjoff Fragrances, as the guest. As soon as I can recover some energy - without back pain - I'll tell you all about the day. I am so glad I went. I wish my spine felt the same way.
