Mineral Makeup Giveaway! N.Y.C. has generously sponsored this giveaway so that we can give three readers the opportunity to try out mineral makeup.  N.Y.C. recently launched their Smooth Mineral collection, which consists of loose and pressed foundation, loose blushes, and loose eyeshadows.  Everything is reasonably priced under $10, and it is widely available at your local drugstores.  I have had the opportunity to already play with these, and I can say that they are up to snuff!

How do you enter? Head on over to our forum (register if you haven’t!) and tell us why you want to try this mineral makeup set by N.Y.C.  Be sure to tell us whether your skintone is light, medium, or dark in your answer, and be sure to post your answer in the link above.  There will be three winners–one light complexion, one medium complexion, and one dark complexion.  Each winner will receive the entire line of N.Y.C. Smooth Minerals for their skintone!  Winners will be chosen at random on May 12th, 2008, midnight PST.

Each winner will receive a prize package valued at approximately $70, and the prize package consists of:

  • N.Y.C. New York Color Smooth Mineral Loose Foundation Powder with SPF 12
  • N.Y.C. New York Color Smooth Mineral Pressed Foundation Powder with SPF 12

It seems like everybody is giving away something this time of the year!  I thought I’d do a little round-up of some of the fab contests I’ve come across.

Total Beauty is having their celebration for Earth Day by holding a huge, site-wide contest that gives away daily prizes of all kinds (from conflict-free diamonds to eco-friendly beauty products), as well as a grand prize of a Saturn Vue filled to the brim of eco-beauty products. How do you enter? Review products and get entered! Check out Totally Green for more details.

Clinique has a contest going on in celebration of Mother’s Day! Share your Mom-and-me story and photo– and you both could win! When you’re done, you can even put your picture on a Clinique Happy custom bottle! The happiest Mom-and-me moment wins these great prizes: Two (2) clinique.com eGift Cards; Two (2) iPod Touch 8GB; Two (2) custom bottles with the winning photo. The winning photo will be featured on Mother’s Day — May 11. They are also running a bridal contest in conjunction with Brides.com, where you can win a nice grand prize featuring a huge diamond, as well as runner up prizes where you can get your own Clinique Makeup Expert on your special day.

Jergens Skincare is showing their support for The Skin Care Foundation with a campaign called “Glow in the Dark,” which is all about tanning via bottles (aka self tanners) rather than baking in the sun. The first 500 people who TAKE THE PLEDGE! to tan safely will receive a sample of Jergens Natural Glow Express Moisturizer and a “I Glow in the Dark” t-shirt. Every pledge made results in $1 donation to The Skin Care foundation up to $20,000.

Misikko is an online retailer that sells several high-end brands of hair styling tools and products (and at great prices, they often have things on sale or less than retail). Three random winners will be selected to win either a $50 or $100 gift certificate to Misikko just for writing a review. Get details here. Contest ends April 27th, midnight EST.
