$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’d buy either new lip glosses or the naked palette.

    My wife is just entering her third trimester, which means she’s right about at the height of not feeling pretty, not being able to get manicures, not being able to get her hair done, etc. Making matters worse, we just moved away from Los Angeles (yes, moving in the middle of a pregnancy; not recommended) to a small Eastern town, so she’s feeling severe fashion withdrawal and has trouble finding maternity clothes that both look good and are work appropriate.

    Sephora’s one of her favorite stores, and one of the only places in town she can find the most current looks, like she was used to in LA. I would use the gift certificate to take her on a mini shopping spree, because *I* think she looks beautiful, especially while this pregnant, but she sometimes needs a make-over party to help herself feel pretty.

    Thanks, as always, for running such a great blog!

  4. Jan says:

    I would use it to buy a hair straightener – mine is on it’s last legs.

    Thanks for the giveaway

  8. I could really use some foundation that’s less than a year old :P

  9. Victoria says:

    I would purchase the Rouge Dior Lipstick 264–it is 32 dollars at Sephora I think. I have been wanting to buy a nice light pink lipstick for years, but haven’t been able to find one to match nicely against my yellow skin tone. I finally found it this week, and it’s a great coincidence that you are having this giveaway lol. The rest I would use to try some ardell demi lashes. Thank you :D

  10. Sonia says:

    Well, I’m not one of the fortunate ones to get the palette, so I’d use the gift card to buy the palette. :)

  11. I obviously won’t buy the UD Naked Palette (I already own it), so I’d spend it on re-stocking up on my Korres face wash and buying something for my mom as a treat :)

  12. Amanda Sakovitz says:

    I would spend it on either nars makeup or a bottle of perfume

  13. megan marie says:

    I would use it on a couple tubes of my favorite Dior mascara!

  14. Jessie says:

    I’d probably use mine to grab some Bare Escentuals goodies I’ve been wanting for some time :-)

  15. Rita says:

    I need more Bobbi Brown makeup remover and some new coverup.

  16. Michelle W. says:

    I would use to buy the regular size version of the Dr. Jart BB Cream that I got a mini sample of. I have been drying to get my hands on the regular size!!

  17. Jennifer says:

    Honestly, that Naked palette looks awesome. So that would be tempting. But probably – a new scent! Sephora has a much better perfume selection than other places around, and I’m on the lookout for my next smell! :)

  18. Palila says:

    I’d spend a Saphora gift card updating my expired makeups with some new ones! Mostly, the tinted moisturizer and some fun eyeshadow.

  19. Mers says:

    I always cheap out on myself and use my make up until its completely gone so i’d restock on the basics!

  20. Revanche says:

    My oldest friend is a new mom of two and her birthday is coming up. A treat trip to Sephora would be just the ticket!

  21. Kara says:

    I would buy the make up forever primer in green

  22. Alice says:

    I’m not a girly girl so I would go in there and tell them to make me over so that I can start learning to wear makeup! Better late than never right??

  23. Kathleen says:

    I’d get some new mascara since I’m on a quest for the perfect one!

  24. Katie says:

    Oooh so hard to choose what I’d buy! I think I’d use it to go toward a new makeup brush or two…and a gorgeous new shade of nail polish I’ve been coveting: My Personal Serpent by Sephora by OPI!

  25. Nina says:

    What a great giveaway! I need some new Urban Decay eyeshadow primer so I would get that along with maybe a new brush or foundation. With the seasons changing, I am in need of some new color!

  26. wen says:

    I’d probably buy some facecare/lotion

  27. andrea says:

    awesome giveaway. i would love to win the gift card and try the famous Urban Decay Naked Palette!

  28. Alyssa says:

    I would buy some pretty new Essie or OPI Nail Polishes. I’m taking medication for a disfigured toe nail and it should be all cleared up in a few weeks. How wonderful it would be to step out into the sunshine with bright new toes!

  29. Tara says:

    I would buy some perfume!

  30. Jill says:

    I’m a Target cosmetics gal…but love looking at all the pretty things I can’t afford at Sephora. :)
    Though it’d make me blush, I’m curious to try NARS blush in Orgasm.
    Thanks for the chance to win.
