'Twas a short sojourn home - tomorrow I'll be boarding another plane and heading back to the States, this time with my mother and sisters in tow. We'll be visiting a few places on the East Coast and they're ecstatic about the two weeks of unbridled shopping that is about to ensue. I'm just happy to be back.
Moving on! A beauty blogger should never (completely) shun her duties, so on my way back home I flipped through the Sky Mall magazine, chancing upon a Hong Kong exclusive Chanel face palette. I swear a lightbulb flashed above my head (appropriately, since I had to hail a stewardess over) because I found my first giveaway item.
Said item is a brand new Les Tendres De Chanel in Les Roses. The packaging is the same as the four stripe bronzers from the Spring 2011 Collection but for the brush hairs, which are white instead of brown.
The top two stripes serve as a highlighter, while the bottom two blend together into a pretty pink.
There are a few ways you can enter to win this Chanel palette.
1) Leave a comment on this article. It can be about anything - what you ate for breakfast, how much you think you might love this palette, how much you hate onions etc. Please leave your e-mail address in any part of the comment so I have a means to contact you if you win (alternatively, you can e-mail me at messywands [at] gmail [dot] com if you don't feel comfortable letting your personal email be known to public).
2) You can earn a second entry by following me on Twitter and tweeting about this giveaway. You have to include @xiaoo in your tweet and link back to this feature for it to count as an entry.
The deadline for this giveaway is September 9 at midnight. I will pick a winner at random the next day and inform her/him via e-mail. The winner will have 72 hours to respond and provide a valid shipping address. If the winner does not respond within 72 hours, the prize will be forfeited, and I will pick another winner.
This contest is open to readers from all around the world.
Good luck, and see you on the 10th!
P.S: I blogged about this some time ago, but as a reminder, I decided to have a bit of fun and join Bobbi Brown's Pretty Powerful 2.0 contest. She's choosing 51 winners (one from each state) and one of them will stand a chance to go to New York for a master class with Bobbi herself, win some goodies, and be the face of the campaign. I will be so honored if you'd like to vote for me, which you can do so here.
