Giveaway: bareMinerals by Bare Escentuals CLOSED





The above pictures were taken on my wedding day three and a half years ago. I've sung their praises before but you can now see firsthand how luminous and beautiful Bare Escentuals' bareMinerals makeup really is. My hair/makeup artist almost exclusively uses bareMinerals products and its not hard to see why.

When I first caught a glimpse of the mineral foundation, I was skeptical. How could such a fine powder effectively cover my red blotches and blemishes? But it surpassed my expectations. bareMinerals feels so weightless and yet covers flawlessly. It transformed my pale, white skin into a radiant glow. It's like magic!

I like that the founder of Bare Escentuals, Leslie Blodgett, treats her brand like a community:

It began when we asked women to imagine a makeup that would actually change the way they feel about their skin and themselves. We encouraged women to take a leap and try something so unique, so unlike anything they’ve experienced before. We started the idea that makeup could actually be considered skincare, and we got people talking. A makeup that could be good for you? The Bare Escentuals community was born. We became friends with our customers, forging deep, personal connections simply by listening and sharing stories. It became less about makeup and more about what really matters.

I already discussed their new campaign, Rethink What Matters. Did you miss that post? Well, to sum it up, Bare Escentuals wants women to sound off on issues that go beyond lipstick and mascara. Each Friday on www.rethinkwhatmatters.com, a new discussion topic will be posted with five simple questions to answer and share with your friends. In doing so, you'll be entered to instantly win free products and other goodies! There will be 500 winners each week and on March 26, 2010 at the conclusion of the campaign, one grand prize winner will be chosen to win the trip of a lifetime to somewhere like Paris, Costa Rica, Turks & Caicos, Italy or Asia!

BUY IT: If luck isn't on your side or you just can't wait to rush out and "go bare", you can purchase Bare Escentuals products online or use their handy dandy store locator to find a store nearest you. They even have a "Foundation Finder" tool to help you find the perfect shade!

WIN IT: Bare Escentuals is generously offering one lucky reader a bareMinerals SPF Foundation - matte or original - in the shade of her choice (ARV $25)!

MAIN COURSE (MANDATORY ENTRY): Visit the Bare Escentuals website and tell me another item that tickles your girlish fancy. Remember to please leave your email address in your comment if it isn't visible on your profile to prevent disqualification!

SUGAR ON TOP (BONUS ENTRIES): To maximize your chances of winning, you may do any or all of the following. Be sure to complete the above mandatory entry or your bonus entries will not count! Remember to leave one comment per entry.

1.) Follow my blog and/or subscribe via reader or email. If you already follow and/or subscribe, that counts! (1 entry each)

2.) Follow me and Bare Escentuals on Twitter and tweet about this contest. You can do this daily! You may use this tweet or come up with your own:

RT @kris10chumley: Get flawless, weightless coverage with @BareEscentuals bareMinerals SFP Foundation! Ends 2/14 http://bit.ly/b7bp8I

Just leave me a comment with your tweet link. (1 entry per day max)

3.) Become a fan of Bare Escentuals on Facebook. (1 entry)

4.) Add my blog button and leave a comment with the link to where I can find it. (1 entry)

Note: My giveaways normally end after 2 weeks but this one is just for 1 week and will end on Valentine's Day so be sure to enter ASAP!

Giveaway will end on February 14, 2010 at 11:59pm EST. Open to U.S. only. Winners will be chosen via Random.org and will have 48 hours to respond to congratulatory email or prize will be forfeited and another winner will be chosen.

Disclaimer: In exchange for this giveaway post, I will be receiving a free bareMinerals SPF Foundation from Catherine at American Pop Digital. I was not compensated in any other way for this post. The thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are purely mine. Your experience may differ.
