MAC Viva Glam Cyndi and Viva Glam Gaga Giveaway For Subscribers

Yep, you read it right! I am turning another year older next week, so to celebrate, I am doing a giveaway exclusively for The Shades Of U subscribers! I am giving away one brand-new MAC Viva Glam Cyndi and one brand-new MAC Viva Glam Gaga lipsticks to two lucky TSOU subscribers. Each one will get one Viva Glam lipstick. You can choose which shade you prefer, but if two winners end up with the same choice, I will choose which one each of them will receive.

It's very easy to join! You just have to be a subscriber or follower of this blog, and you need to leave a link to a blog, Facebook or forum entry about this contest or re-tweet it. International subscribers outside of the US are welcome!

Contest Mechanics:

1. This contest is open to all The Shades Of U Subscribers/Followers 18 years old and older. International subscribers (outside of the U.S.) are welcome to join. Subscribe to The Shades Of U via one of the following: the RSS Feed, e-mail subscription, Twitter, or 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. This is a viral contest, so you need to post a link to this blog contest or a link to The Shades Of U homepage, either on your blogs (Blogger, Vox, etc), forums you visit, or social networks (MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, etc). Re-tweeting on Twitter or sharing this link on your Facebook account fulfills this requirement. One post about this contest is enough to become eligible.

3. Leave a comment in the Comment Box below. Include the following:

a. A link to your blog entry, Facebook or forum post, or your blog URL (if you posted the contest on the sidebar) about this contest. If you re-tweeted this contest, simply say you re-tweeted it.

b. Your e-mail address where I can reach you just in case you are declared the winner; and

c. Your choice between Viva Glam Cyndi or Viva Glam Gaga.

4. I will choose two entries randomly via Random.Org.

5. The contest shall run starting today, February 19, 2010 and ends on my birthday, Saturday, February 27, 2010 at 11:59 p.m. EST.

6. The Shades Of U shall randomly pick two winners who shall win one lipstick each, announce the name of the winners on this blog, and shall contact the winners via the e-mail addresses provided in the comment box. If two of the winners choose the same lipstick shade, The Shades Of U shall decide which lipstick each winner will receive. The Shades Of U shall also ask for proof of subscription to the blog (Either the Twitter/Facebook/Google or Blogger ID, or e-mail address used to subscribe to TSOU).

7. The winners shall respond with his/her mailing address and proof of subscription 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 apprised 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 packages to anywhere in the world via First Class mail. If the winner is a US Resident, the prize shall be sent with delivery confirmation. If the winner resides outside of the US, 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 prizes has been mailed, nor shall it be responsible for customs duties or fees.

Goodluck to everyone! Remember to follow all Contest Mechanics, especially Number 3.

I am a daily reader and subscriber to your blog and receive your blog on my email, which is kleimanlaw at aol dot com. I also tweeted and retweeted about this contest at and shared this contest on my facebook page at But the most incredible thing is that I have been telling everyone I know that the only thing I want for MY birthday, which is also February 27th, are these 2 lipsticks, Viva Glam Gaga and Viva Glam Cyndi. I guess we're soul sisters. I love both colors and if I won, I'd be appreciative and love either one. I have a slight preference to the Viva Glam Gaga. Anyway, I'll be thinking of you on OUR birthday and I hope EVERY one of your dreams and wishes come true. HAPPY BIRTHDAY. DLori
