$50 Sephora Gift Card Giveaway!

Update: This giveaway has now come to a close. Congratulations to Irene, who entered via the Facebook giveaway page! Please be on the lookout for an email from me soon!


A few months ago, the famed Urban Decay Naked Palette — which had been getting regularly sold out everywhere since its release last year — came back in stock at Sephora online and I immediately snatched one up.

And you know what? It is just as good as all the online reviews say…and more! In fact, I would go as far as to say that for the everyday woman, this is the only eye shadow palette you will need!

I even convinced my SIL to get one herself, and she loves it just as much as I do, if not more. :-)

Why the long background story? Because you see, I had originally planned on giving away the Urban Decay Naked Palette as this month’s giveaway…

…only to realize that due to its popularity, many of my readers may already have it!

So I decided to use the money toward a gift card from the mecca of beauty stores: Sephora!

That’s right — I am giving away a $50 Sephora gift card!

Running low on your favorite product? Been itching to try the latest and greatest? Need to purchase a gift for a friend?

Well, you may just get lucky and win!

Now, for the rules…

Each reader is eligible for up to three entries via the following methods (each method will grant a separate entry):

  1. Leave a comment to this post about how you would spend the Sephora gift card.
  2. If you haven’t done so already, go to the Geek in Heels Facebook Page and “Like” the page. Then click on the Sephora Gift Card Giveaway link (located right under the profile picture, or just use this link) to enter the sweepstakes.
  3. If you haven’t done so already, follow @geekinheels on Twitter and tweet exactly the following: I just entered for a chance to win a $50 Sephora gift card via @geekinheels at http://bit.ly/rigo5Z and you can too!

Please do not leave extra comments here if you enter via Facebook or Twitter.

You can increase your chances of winning by using all three methods of entry. There is only one entry allowed per person, per method  — for a total possible number of three entries — and any additional entries will be promptly deleted. (Yes, I have ways of checking this. And yes, this will only cause me to get annoyed at you.)

For the complete list of rules, go to this link.

The giveaway begins as soon as this entry is published — August 26, 2011 @ 12:00pm EDT — and will run until September 1, 2011 @ 11:59pm EDT. The winner will be announced here on September 2 and will also be notified by email (so please use a valid email when entering so that I can contact you if you win!) or via a Twititer DM.

Good luck, and thanks for reading! (I love giveaways, don’t you? :-D)

    I would buy this! I’ve been contemplating purchasing after reading so many rave reviews, but I’m a cheapskate!

  2. Lori says:

    I would totally restock up on my bareminerals! my face has been a mess since i’ve been pregnant!! wahhhh!

  3. LatteLove says:

    hmm, I don’t have the naked palette – that looks great!

    I’m always looking for the perfect eyeliner. I also need to start being a grown up about grooming my eyebrows, and I’d love a bright pretty new lipstick!

  4. Melissa H. says:

    Thanks for the Urban Decay Naked Palette recommendation! Must give that a try :) I would use a Sephora gift card to find a gift for my mom on her birthday.

  5. ABC says:

    I DO love giveaways, and I really love Sephora! I don’t have the Naked palette yet, but it’s on my wish-list. If I won, and I decided against the palette for some reason, I’d get some lip color of some sort. I’ve recently started wearing lip gloss and lip stick more, and I’d love to expand my collection so I have something to wear with everything!

  6. ceecee says:

    I’m starting a new job! I need a new look!

  7. Megan says:

    I’ve been in the market for a new concealer, so I would have to check them out!

  8. Jenna says:

    Mmmm, yes please! I am in desperate need of some new foundation. I’m running low on my Laura Mercier… I don’t think I can scrape any more from the bottle!

  9. Amanda says:

    I would use the card as a gift for my mom’s upcoming 60th birthday!

  10. Allie says:

    I would so buy that! Either that or I would use it to get some new lipsticks. I only have one lipstick that I really like, and one of my bridesmaids accidentally took it back to California with her after the wedding. So I have no pretty lipsticks. :(

  11. Tina Lane says:

    I would purchase the urban decay naked palette. I’ve been wanting to buy it for months now

  12. Vicky says:

    more makeup! actually I think I need to restock on primer…

  13. Jo says:

    I would buy more Bare Minerals make-up as it is the only foundation make-up I am not allergic to! Every other brand makes me break out horribly. :( Unfortunately I can’t afford to stock up very often, as I’m disabled and in grad school (read: am totally broke!). Winning this would make me so happy!

  14. Liesal says:

    I would love a Sephora gift card! I think I’d splurge on some new makeup or a new facial cleanser that I’ve been stalking.

  15. Julie S. says:

    I am a stay-at-home mom of 2 (one 6 yo and one 6 mo)…always looking for stuff to spruce up my looks so I don’t look like a complete slob all the time! I love Sephora because you can get all you need in beauty products without lugging the kids around! I’m all about liquid eyeliner to get my Julie Newmar cat-eye on!
