Stila All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer Giveaway Contest

Kapow! This new Stila All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer ($20) set grabbed me at Sephora online and wouldn't let go. As a total Stila lover (I think Stila is under-priced for the quality and doesn't get enough love from bloggers), I wanted it immediately. Not three days from my order processing date (not-so-subtle dig at Sephora)! While I was at it, I decided to order two, one for me, one for you - at least one of you.

This trio of trial-sized, skin-enhancing liquid shimmers will add a subtle touch of shimmer for a radiant glow. Ideal for all skin types, each formula contains a skin-protecting antioxidant and grape seed oil to condition and nourish the skin. Soft-focus pigments will help diminish the appearance of fine lines and skin imperfections while adding uplifting highlights. These wonderful liquids, like Armani's, can be used over your foundation or tinted moisturizer or mixed into your face lotion or favorite foundation for subtle luminescence.

The Liquid Luminizers in the set come in three stunning shades: Pink Shimmer, Rose Gold Shimmer, and Bronze Shimmer. That covers the landscape. If you know me, you know I flip over anything rose gold - makeup, jewelry, clothing, leather, you name it. An extra-added benefit? If you want to know the ingredients, Stila shares freely. Just go to this link. I love the Stila team. If you don't follow Sarah Lucero @StilaPROartist at Twitter, you should. She's "good people."

How can you enter to share the joy? To 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, May 26, 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!

Stila is definitely my favourite brand! It's expensive here in Oz, but if I'm feeling flush, it's definitely the counter I head to. Thanks for another great giveaway.

WOW, this week's giveaway is incredible. I'm usually up on most of the new beauty products but haven't seen these gorgeous luminizers until first viewing them on your site, which is usually what happens. You are ALWAYS the first to know these things. They are so beautiful, so universally flattering and really can add some beautiful highlighting to the eyes and face. Brightens up even the most tired looking faces and eyes. I do agree with you that Stila doesn't get the credibility or recognition it deserves in that it still doesn't seem to be considered by many to be a high end product. But I have been using their creme blush, illium, which adds beautiful color to the cheeks without settling into fine lines for years and I've always gotten compliments for my "natural" skin coloring. They also have the most fabulous eye liners, felt tip, which are waterproof, come in a plethora of beautiful colors, for the extremely reasonable price of either $20 or $22 dollars. And I love their beautiful lip glosses, packaged usually 3 in a decorative box for $12 for all 3. These glosses add the perfect amount of shimmer & shine without looking gaudy, too youthful, or over the top. They are constantly adding new items to their collections and what I like most is they have wonderful customer service and actually listen and take advice from their customers, something lacking these days especially from Sephora, a store I used to adore. But I have been so disappointed in Sephora lately, the way they handle, or rather don't handle customer complaints or customer issues. This item is a perfect choice for a giveaway and leave it to you to find that one very special item for one of your fabulous giveaways. Thank you for caring so much for your fans, for all the hard work you dedicate toward keeping us happy and informed even under the most stressful time in your life You're as beautiful on the outside as you are on the inside which is why you're so loved by everyone who meets you and which is why people are always enquiring about the health of your mother. That shows how much we care about you and worry about you. I worry that you're not taking the care for yourself you desperately need but I certainly understand your situation. I KNOW mom will be fine because you wouldn't have it any other way. And with all the prayers I, and your other fans are always sending to G-d for you and your mother's health and happiness, everything must be OK. Just remember, you really do have so many people who love and care about you and your mom. I wish I, personally could do more and live closer to do the little things so some of the pressure could be alleviated from your life. I'm always here for you.

I, too, love Stila and would love to have the opportunity to try these new luminizers. The shades are just awesome. Also, this is my first time putting up a comment. I just want to tell you, CG, how very much I enjoy reading your reviews. I read them everyday. We must have quite a bit in common since I seem to like the same things as you. Plus, I'm a good ol' Southern girl myself. Thanks and keep up the good work.
