  19. Nines

    Makeup! =D Well, mainly stuff from Nordstroms & Sephora anyways. Probably fill in some items I am running low on (you know, be “responsible” with it, ha!) And I would definitely use it on perfume! I have been in lust with the new”ish” Eli Saab perfume, but I’m not much of a perfume person, so it pains me to spend the amount it costs for a bottle of the stuff. But if I won this… totally justified! =D Thanks Christine!

  20. Kathy

    I would like to pick up a naked palette!

  21. Lydia

    I would get the Ultimate Eye Liner Collection from Makeup Forever!

  50. I’ve been quite ill and although I really need the money, I’d donate the money to a fabulous Big Cat Reserve in Africa run by a wonderful man by the name of Kevin Richardson. Keeping these places open is quite costly and although $250 is only a slight drop in the bucket, it still is something. Without these places to care for these beautiful endangered specials, mainly the Big Cats, these animals will be gone from the face of the earth by the next generation. And I can’t thing of anything sadder than a planet without these beautiful creatures.

    Thnk you for this giveaway. Happy holidays and Good luck to all.
