As used herein, “Entry” refers to any and all materials created by an Entrant/Finalist in participating in the Contest.
A. Entry Period #1 – Preliminary Round
The ten (10) eligible persons will each receive from Sponsor/Administrator all twenty-four (24) shades of the Stay Glossy lipgloss product (Approx. Retail Value: $119.76).
The objective of Entry Period #1 is to use the Stay Glossy lipgloss product as the inspiration to create their own “look” for an occasion as designated by Sponsor. Each entrant must use at least one (1) shade of Stay Glossy lipgloss to create their “look.”
After creating their “look”, entrant must take (or have taken) three (3) unaltered photos of the “look”:
- Head-to-toe shot.
- Close-up shot of face.
- Close-up shot of lips.
Entrant must then e-mail the three (3) photos to the provided e-mail address along with a short statement (no more than 250 words) describing how they developed their “look,” including the shade(s) of Stay Glossy lipgloss used and how they were used (e.g., mixing and matching, layering), the items comprising their outfit (for head-to-toe shot), and how they fixed their hair and make-up. In addition, entrant must submit a photo of herself as of 11/16/12, with the understanding that the photo will be used by Sponsor for commercial purposes (via social media).
All entries must be submitted via e-mail for receipt by 11:59:59 am ET on 11/20/12.
B. Judging Period #1
All Eligible Entries received and recorded during Entry Period #1 will be judged by a panel of judges as determined by Sponsor. Eligible Entries will be judged based on the following equally weighted criteria: (a) creativity of occasion response, (b) quality of occasion response (including relevance of response to occasion), (c) extensiveness of entrant's social community. Only the five (5) entrants with the highest scores will be deemed Finalists and will advance to the Final Round in the Contest.

For each of the four (4) Finalist Entry Periods, Finalist must use Stay Glossy lipgloss as the inspiration to create their own “look” for each of two (2) occasions, per week for a total of four (4) weeks totaling eight (8) “looks” designated by Sponsor. For Finalist Entry Period #1, Finalist will only need to create a new “look” for one (1) occasion as the “look” submitted in Entry Period #1 will count as one of the Finalist’s “looks” in Finalist Entry Period #1. Again, for each “look”, Finalist must use at least one (1) different shade of Stay Glossy lipgloss.
For each of the four (4) Finalist Entry Periods, Finalist must submit the following materials and/or do the following for each of the two (2) occasions:

[Note: Description must be materially different for each “look”.] Any lip gloss used to create a “look” must be Rimmel London Stay Glossy lipgloss. “Look” and description cannot include brands that are directly competitive with Rimmel London.
Step 2. Publish a blog post about your “look” and submit link to blog post to Sponsor. Blog post needs be the same as description submitted as per Step 1, but must include the head-to-toe shot, close-up shot of face and close-up shot of lips used in Step 1.

I have been compensated by Coty US LLC (Rimmel London US) for making these statements regarding its products.
