Sonoran Rain

As many of you probably know, I created a MAC lipglass called Sonoran Rain which is now available for purchase on the MAC Cosmetics website (U.S. and Canada only). I know that many of my international readers are bummed that they cannot get their hands on this product, so I am holding this giveaway for all The Shades Of U followers worldwide.

This is your chance to win one of three brand-new Sonoran Rain lipglasses that are up for grabs. All you need to do is follow the Contest Mechanics below and submit your entry using the Contest Machine Entry Form at the bottom of this post.

Again, this contest is for all The Shades Of U subscribers and followers, but please, PLEASE READ THE CONTEST MECHANICS CAREFULLY. If you do not follow the contest rules, your entries will be disqualified. Goodluck to all :)

All entries must be entered using the Contest Machine entry form found at the end of this post. Please do NOT leave comments in the comment box; instead, all entries must be filled out using the Contest Machine entry form.


1. This contest is open to all The Shades Of U Subscribers/Followers 18 years old and older worldwide. International subscribers (outside of the U.S.) are welcome to join. Subscribe to or follow The Shades Of U via one of the following: the RSS Feed, e-mail subscription, Twitter, Blogger/Google Friend Connect or Facebook. If you are currently a subscriber, you are automatically eligible to join and you do not need to re-subscribe.

2. Fill up the Contest Machine entry form below, include your name and e-mail address. You should state in the entry form that you are a subscriber or follower of The Shades Of U via one of the following:

You can enter again by posting a link to this blog contest on your blogs (either as an entry itself or on your sidebar), forums you visit, or social networks (Facebook, Twitter etc.), or by re-tweeting the original contest tweet on Twitter.

Submit another entry by posting on the Contest Machine form the link to your forum, blog or Facebook/Twitter post about this contest, or mention the fact that you re-tweeted the contest. This will earn you one extra entry (take note: you need to be a follower or subscriber of this blog first and your initial entry should state that). Remember, the more entries you send, the more chances of winning!

4. You can submit an entry every time you re-tweet or post another link on your blog or social networks, but you can only submit an entry once a day. However, you can submit your initial entry and your first link or retweet in one day, but subsequent entries with links or retweets should only be submitted once a day. Let me repeat, please: You can only re-enter ONCE A DAY.

5. The sweepstakes shall run starting today, June 22, 2011 and ends on Monday, July 4, 2011 at 11:55 p.m. EDT.

6. Contest Machine and The Shades Of U shall randomly pick three winners who shall win one MAC Sonoran Rain lipglass each, announce the names of the winners on this blog, and shall contact the winner via the e-mail address provided in the entry form.

7. The winner shall respond with his/her mailing address within seventy-two (72) hours of the delivery of the notification e-mail; otherwise, the entry shall be disqualified and another winner shall be chosen. Thus, this is also the reason why entrants should subscribe to this blog to be promptly notified of the winner's name just in case the notification e-mail does not go through or goes to the spam inbox.

8. The Shades Of U will ship the prize package to anywhere in the world via First Class mail. If the winner is a U.S. Resident, the prize shall be sent with delivery confirmation. If the winner resides outside of the U.S., the prize shall be sent to the international winner using First Class international mail with no tracking number. However, the postal receipt shall be kept as evidence of shipment. The Shades Of U shall not be responsible for loss or delays in the delivery of the package after the prize has been mailed, nor shall it be responsible for customs duties or fees.

Goodluck to everyone! Don't forget to subscribe or follow, fill up the entry form below (NOT the Comment box), and click "Submit". Don't forget to state how you are subscribed to The Shades Of U, and that to earn an extra entry, include this in the form: mention you re-tweeted, the link to the post you created on your blog, forum you visited, or social network about this contest.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for this giveaway! This lipgloss is the only item from this LE that I would really like to have.

I have already thought of asking any of my fellow US bloggers to CP this one for me...

Lilly said...

Thanks a lot for the chance!

Sylvie said...

Yay! Now I stand a chance to get my hands on the lipglass! Thank you so much for the international giveaway!

I was wondering, if I win(or any other Canadian)are you going to use a different method of shipping if Canada Post is still not running?

Aileen, I joined the contest and wanted to say congrats! The color is lovely, and I loved reading about what inspired this shade.

Been a follower via google since my mmu obsession a few years ago. Forgot to indicate in my contest entry that my google username is also Ida.

Super lemming ako for Sonoran Rain. Hehe. :) But couldn't order since I don't have a card w/ a US billing address.
