Emily Kim says:

I adore Sephora because they carry some of the best brands such as Benefit, NARS, etc. Thanks for the great giveaway! ;D

Shamama says:

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 😉

Joyce says:

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.

Joan says:

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!!! 😀

Jazmine says:

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!


T. Hood says:

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.

Karin says:

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

Nicky Lee says:

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.:)

Lina says:

I’d buy my first make up ‘kit!’

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…

Ashaki says:

I get most everything from Sephora. Love It!

Angela says:

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.

CurlyKye says:

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!

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.

It’s time for me to get some new moisturizer so this would be right on time for me! I love Sephora…

I love Sephora because i feel like a princess in her fancy bordeaux whenever I am there.

Kristen says:

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.)

katrina says:

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