Urban Decay Smoked 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Set Giveaway Contest

Urban Decay's Smoked 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Set ($38) is a six-piece eye pencil set that takes smoky way beyond basic black.Want a green smoky eye? Check. Want a bronze one? Check. This set is filled with beautiful colors. If you've read BTiB for awhile, you will know that I think Urban Decay makes some of the best eyeliners on the market. They do double-duty too, acting as eye shadows.

Forget everything you thought you knew about creating super-sexy eyes. This half-dozen liner set features Uzi and Empire, two limited-edition shades Urban Decay brought back because of popular demand, and Smog and Mainline, two amazing new shades you won’t find anywhere else. From shimmering pewters and deep, dynamic jewel tones to chocolate neutrals and award-winning black, this set has your every smoky eye need covered. As I type, I wonder why on earth I'm giving it away.

All the eyeliners are .03 ounces, and they come packed in a box for easy storage. I have one set to give away.
  • Smog (copper)
  • Mainline (dark green/blue matte), 
  • Uzi (gunmetal taupe w/silver micro-glitter)
  • Empire (dark eggplant satin)
  • Zero (zealous black)
  • Demolition (deep brown matte)
How can you enter to win this giveaway contest (technically a sweepstakes)? I'm going to try something new. I'm limiting entries to anyone who has commented on a regular feature here - not a contest - during the last two months. If you qualify, just leave a comment on this feature (not in another BTiB post), and if you can, please tell me in your entry which feature drew your comment. I want to send a thank you to a regular reader.

After you comment here, feel free to send me an e-mail at bestthingsinbeautycontests@gmail.com (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 winners 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 early this evening, and you can simply retweet it to earn that second entry - if that's easier.

The deadline for entries will be Saturday, December 8, at midnight. The next morning, I will use a random number generator (random.org) 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.

The winner must be able to provide me with a "mailable address," meaning the U.S. Post Office recognizes it or its street, province, and other "elements" the way the winner provides them. I've had some trouble with both U.S. and international addresses lately.

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

Stay tuned for more giveaways this month. It's holiday time - a great time for gifts!

I read your blog regularly, but don't often comment as I don't have much (if not any) experience with the luxurious brands you often showcase. I still enjoy reading about your experiences though!

My last comment was on your most recent "Sunday This and That". I, very enthusiastically, gave my two cents on wonderful boots for skinny-legged ladies. :)

Such stunning colours!!! It would be such a perfect Christmas gift if I could win this. All the more so coz UD isn't yet available in India (will be now that Sephora has opened in Delhi).

Fairly new to your blog, I'm loving reading all your old posts. I commented on Le Métier de Beauté Bauhaus Kaleidoscope Lip Kit and the Obsessive Compulsive Lip Tars.
