HELP! I need somebody ...

I was given a $25 gift card to Sephora for my birthday back in April, and I have no idea what to spend it on!!! I spent a half hour in the store last week, and walked out with nothing! There is so much to look at and play with, and all the different displays shine so pretty and bright! I simply can't decide on anything!
I need some help!! What are your favorite products you get at Sephora? What brands do you adore? I will send a little gift to the person who suggests the product I end up buying!!

OMG I just found out about and started using Philosophy's The Microdelivery Peel...and its FABULOUS. Its like a spa facial peel at home and afterward your face is seriously the softest & refreshed!

Sephora is my favorite but I agree it's hard to choose!! I say go with something you wouldn't normally buy...i.e. bright red lipstick. Kat Von D makes one called Underage Red. Wear it with a cat eye and look super HOT!!

Well, well! If you only want to spend the 25$, it's true that it is hard to choose. Personally, I get a lot of stuff at Sephora's. But it depends on your make-up habits.

I recommand :
Smashbox Photo finish lid primer. It makes the shadows stay put for hours and hours.

Yves Saint Laurent's golden gloss http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P218211&shouldPaginate=true&categoryId=1070 It smells AND TASTES like mango! I just love it.

Smashbox Eye Shadow Quad http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P258602&shouldPaginate=true&categoryId=3990 for a naturel look. I love it.

The mascara I love is Dior Iconic.

I could go on and on, but... I would take up too much space.

Hope it helped a little.

Oh, I heart Sephora. I could spend hundreds in there!

Here are some things that I’m loving right now:

Too Faced Beauty in a Box http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P263700&searchString=too%20faced%20beauty%20in%20a%20box. This is so perfect for summer and has a bevy of beauty products inside of it. I especially like the bronzer and lipstick. The eyelid primer is great too and you’re getting $84 worth of products for $38

Korres Lip Butter (I got this in mango) http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P199109&categoryId=B70. So hydrating and great for those dry summer lips.

NARS The Multiple in Copacabana http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P2866&categoryId=B70. This is a great highlighter and the shade Orgasm makes for an awesome cream to dry blush.

Yves Saint Laurent ROUGE VOLUPTÉ Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick SPF 15 in Lingerie Pink http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P218426&searchString=rouge%20volupte. These lipsticks are so creamy and look great worn alone or with gloss. I also like that they have an SPF for summer and they have a ton of shades to choose from.

Good luck spending that gift card!

$10 Benefit Cosmetics Benefit To Go Beauty Bestsellers ($30 Value)

$18 Dior Dior Best in Show Mini Mascara Duo

Those are the one's I would choose in a heart beat

Good luck, hun!!

They have fun Juicy hair ties for summer, and I LOVE their pencil eye liner so if you need new eye liner that's the one. Lip venom is also a must have, is a lip gloss lip plumper that they sell. Good luck! Enjoy the discount!

I just read this so it's funny you mentioned that now!

OMG, I simply ADORE Sephora!!! I went in there a few weeks ago and could've spent hours and hours in there! There's just so much to look at and try! I didn't allow myself to stay for very long though because I don't have any money and would've wanted to spend some anyways! Boo!

I've always wanted to try some of the Fredric Fekkai shampoos and products that they sell.

I'm with Stleezta, I'd probably try something I normally wouldn't since I had a gift card. Then, if I didn't like it, I wouldn't feel like I wasted any $ on it. And if I loved it, I'd feel even better about it since I got it for free! (Or for less than it would've normally cost, depending on the amount of the gift certificate and the price of the product you were buying.)

First of all, I absolutely love Sephora!! I think the best investment I bought was the Sugarbomb blush by Benefit


First of all, it smells absolutely fantastic. I know that's weird for a blush, but it does! Also it looks great and a little goes a long way.

The other splurge I loved from Sephora was Kim Kardashian's perfume.
