Calling all Essie stans — the Mercury in Retrograde Sweepstakes is back and better than before. For its celebratory third time around, you’ll be entering to win an all-in-one astrology and beauty experience. And this year, our team at got in on the madness; we partnered with our friends at Essie, Dermablend, Sunday Forever and The AstroTwins for the star-studded occasion. 

The prize includes the new Mercury in Retrograde 3.0 Collection (featuring two shades, It’s Not You… and ...It's Mercury), Dermablend Glow Creator Highlighter Makeup and the brand’s cult-classic Banana Powder, Sunday Forever Mega Crystal Kit and AstroTwins’ Love Zodiac book and a personalized star sign necklace. Lastly, from all of us at, we’re chipping in a $150 spa gift card and personalized makeup bag. Not too shabby, huh?


The Mercury in Retrograde 3.0 Sweepstakes starts today and runs until Thursday, October 31 (AKA Halloween), so head over to Essie to enter — and maybe the third time will be your charm.
