    I buy my mascara at Sephora, and I need more! (Christian Dior, waterproof, can’t go wrong.)

    I would LOVE a Sephora gift card and would use it to find and splurge on the perfect shade of ruby red lipstick. (And then of course I’d walk out with many more goodies since the items in that store seem to leap from the shelves and into my shopping bag.)

    I would LOVE to win a $25 gift card from IHS’ Sephora giveaway because I can always use a new mascara to make my eyes look wide open when I arrive at 7am to meet my students!

    I love Sephora because the store helps me feel like a goddess. From skin polishes, to lip glosses, to hair fixes, Sephora supplies all I need to help me indulge and bring out my inner Venus.

    I love Sephora because i feel like a princess in her fancy bordeaux whenever I am there. The mirrors show all reflection, the perfumes and oils fill the air with aroma and the samples, the samples I can try basically anything I want to.ahhh sigh…the experience is not only one of beauty, but also of stress relief.

    I heart Sephora! Right now I have 250 points on my ‘beauty insider’ card. That’s way too much shopping, so I definitely need this gift card to cut my beauty costs…lol.

    I need to win this so I can pick up something for Mother’s Day. I already have a spa day planned so this would be the perfect addition to her gift.

    i love sephora because they have saved my life. as a reporter i was told to go out and do a red carpet story one day with NO notice. I had not a stitch of makeup on and the experts there hooked me up! I don’t know what I would have done without them. They did my eyelashes, everything! I owe my story (and my credibility) to them.

  15. Erin

    April 13, 2010 at 2:35 pm

    hi…my name is erin robinson and i am a product junkie. sephora is my best friend and a gift card there is like sending a child to the candy store….solo! yummmm!

    I LOVE Sephora because I walk in for a skincare item (oh my beloved Philosophy) and walk out with a lipstick, bronzer, eyeliner, lipliner, perfume, samples and my VIB gift. Products in Sephora are like Lays potato chips…can’t have just one.

    This gift card would be awesome to win!

  17. Angela

    I will buy black eyelashes with the diamonds on the end. I will then bat my eyes at younger men and roll my eyes whenever the fools I work with say or do something stupid. I figure those eyelashes will get a good work out.

  18. Ashaki

    I *need* that Sephora gift card! I’m a freelance beauty/fashion writer and i could rack up on products to test and write about!

  20. Angie

    April 14, 2010 at 10:09 am

    Ive never shopped @ Sephora, but saw a tweet on the give away..and thought…why not go for the 1st time WITH a gift card! : )

  21. Jennifer Rose

    April 14, 2010 at 5:47 pm

    I would definitely use the gift card to get my Urban Decay Potion Primer. I’m running out and it’s the only thing that keeps my eye makeup in tact.

  22. Schmidty

    April 14, 2010 at 7:57 pm

    I love Sephora because I feel so spoiled just being in the store!

    Oh I would LOOOOVE to win this! I’m a huge Sephora fan and have been jumping for joy ever since they opened a standalone store in my town!

    My favorite part of the store is the fragrance aisle. I actually love both the mens and womens perfumes– this weekend I went in and tested YSL La Nuit de Homme, which is my new lemming…

    Sephora is the makeup mecca! I swear I hear angels singing when I enter that store. I would love to win a gift card to get my spring look just right.

  26. Nicky Lee

    I love Sephora, but I just wish they had one closer to where I live now. It’s a beauty haven for all females. It’s my one-stop-shop for beauty and the stores are just so bright and vibrant, they wake you up when you walk into them. So when I go I make sure I have list. They have the best deals on perfumes and other sweet goodies for the body.:)

  27. Karin

    April 15, 2010 at 9:35 am

    I’m not sure what I would buy with it— just whatever my heart desires at the time I am spending the GC!

  28. T. Hood

    April 15, 2010 at 2:23 pm

    Every lady loves Sephora and I’m no exception. I work right across the street from one and it takes all my strength not to head in there all the time! That said- if I had a $25 gift card I would use it toward a new spring fragrance cuz I loooove perfume and like to switch ’em up per the season.

    We all love Sephora because they always have just what we are looking for. I go there for everything, and yes, I am a Beauty Insider. I just recently discovered a product that will change my life, literally. I’ve always struggled with my frizzy curly hair and I’ve tried everything from Garnier to Tresemme to Nexxus.

    And then I stumbled upon Ouidad which seems very promising. They have numerous testimonials from women of various curl type. Sephora, of course, carries this brand and I would spend the gift card on trying this new product.

    Hopefully, my long, dry, frizzy struggle with my hair will come to an end!

    With a Sephora gift card, I would buy my first makeup that’s worth more than 10 dollars from a drugstore.

  31. Ally

    I love Sephora because they have so many brands that I am interested in! They even have AmorePacific, Jurlique, Ojon..etc. that are rare in America. Also, they give out ample samples so that I can try. That is why I love Sephora.

    If I get the giftcard, I would like to buy one of the fragrances of Fresh called Hesperides. It has the smell of grapefruit and I would love to try it!

    Thank you so much!!
    Have a blissful day!!! 😀

    I have heard alot about sephora but have never been to one of the stores, we have one here. Maybe this will give me that push to go.

    March 15, 2011 at 9:11 pm

    Honestly, there are so many things I would do with this gift card! How will I ever choose? Sephora means bird.. I feel light just being there. I think beauty is empowering to women. Being able to go to Sephora and indulge in my inner goddess is an experience for me. Beautifying the self is very spiritual, I think. Gift card or not. But hey gift cards are nice 😉
