$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)

    Thanks for the great giveaway! I’ve been a long time reader and recently making a bigger effort to comment more often on the blogs I love to read. I would use the gift card to buy some makeup for the first time in over a year. Being pregnant and taking care of a baby made me neglect my face.

  4. penga says:

    I’d buy the naked palette! thanks for hosting!

  5. Tiffany says:

    i would give the naked palette a whirl!

  6. Sherry Meng says:

    I would buy myself a new tube of BB Cream!!

  7. I would probably use it to try out new products instead of stocking up on stuff I like because I know I’m willing to shell out money to get stuff I already love. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

  8. Rachel says:

    I’d use it to buy lots of stuff that I’ve been meaning to get. I tend to forget to pamper myself while I’m taking care of everyone else!

  9. HamiHarri says:

    I would spend it on some new mineral face powders…or a new lipstick?

  10. AnneMaria says:

    I would get a bunch of nail polishes. I’m just obsessed.

  11. Tript says:

    I would spend it on nail polish and eye makeup!

  12. Jessie says:

    More of smashbox’s primer…it makes even my broken out skin look flawless.

  13. Christy says:

    I love the Naked palette, too!
    If I won the gift card, I’d invest in some new foundation. I need to find a new one and this would be great motivation.

  14. Alix says:

    Would love to try BB cream.

  15. carmen says:

    I would spend it on Philosophy bath products.

  16. Jamie says:

    I would spend it on my urban decay eyeliners; i never have enough. Thanks for the giveaway.

  17. Jessica K. says:

    There are a ton of things I want–I haven’t bought new make-up in forever! But probably some new lipstick and lip liner.

  18. I would totally buy the Naked Palette…I am glad you reviewed it so highly!

  19. Logan says:

    1. I would stock up on basics, eyeliner, mascara etc for fall!

  20. audrey says:

    I would buy the naked palette! I’m a total makeup noob and this sounds good for people like me :)

  21. Rachel says:

    I’d love to try out some new products. Thanks for the giveaway!

  22. I was going to say I’d replenish my Bare Minerals makeup, but that Urban Decay Naked Palette does look pretty awesome! I’ve been wearing eye makeup a bit more often these days and I like the sound of something being “universally flattering” — that means it’s dummy proof for me!

  23. Nicole says:

    Yikes! I’m not sure what I would buy as I normally don’t pay more than $5 for make-up. This would be a nice way to buy decent make-up that actually looks good on me!

  24. Jessie says:

    I’ve been eyeing the Chloé perfume for so long! Can I enter as a Canadian? :)

  25. Jackie says:

    I love Sephora too much to pass this up (I’m considering spending an extra $100 this year just so I can get VIB status for next!). I would definitely get the Urban Decay 20th Anniversary Palette.. I believe it’s supposed to be in stores in September (at least that’s what they told me in Spain). I can’t WAIT.

  26. Anna says:

    I’ve never tried the Urban Decay palette but now this makes me want to go pick one up! Thanks for doing another giveaway! Your giveaways are always so awesome! :)

  27. Katherine says:

    After reading the reviews for the Urban Decay Naked palette, I think I’d probably have to get that. Thanks for hosting another giveaway!

  28. Josie says:

    I’d buy the basics, foundation, mascara, etc. I need to replenish my stock. ha ha

  29. Eek565 says:

    Oo. I would definitely use the gift card to buy the pricy organic products I can’t seem to stop using!

  30. pjs says:

    i could so use this! makeup money has become diaper money these days…
