I’d buy a Clarisonic the moment I got my grubby little hands on that gift card. Investing in skincare has recently become a big priority of mine. A smooth canvas helps makeup look that much more flawless. =]

I’ve been loving Philosophy Miracle Worker, so I’d consider Hope In A Jar (it’s not paraben-free, so I’m abit on the fence). Maybe I’d pick up a full-size of Miracle Worker, which is $65…

If I went for actual makeup, I’d probably pick up another NARS Multiple (Maldives), and an eyeshadow duo (Habanera & Paris top my list ATM).

I had a $25 gift card and got Naked Basics.

If I had $75 to spend, I’d probably pick up the MUFE eyeliner kit; with the after-Christmas sale, it’d cost almost nothing out of pocket!

GlamGlow mask! I would never buy it for myself, simply because of the price. I had tried a sample before and loved it. My hubby got it for me for Christmas, and I feel bad, because it’s expensive for a mask, but it was a gift, so I definitely appreciate it, and will use it all up!

That’s a good question!! Hmm..Idk..maybe YSL Glossy Stains or some Hourglass items or Giorgio Armani Lip Maestros or maybe some permanent MAC lippies & pigments..or even use it toward buying a large bottle of YSL Manifesto perfume πŸ˜‰

Guerlain Four Season bronzer in Nude 00. It’s on my wishlist, but it’s a hard one to push myself into buying just because of the price tag. πŸ˜›

Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peels. I got a trial 5-pack for Christmas which I am going to cut in half so I can get 10 treatments–the pads are really soaked in product so I don’t think I will be altering the results. I had a sample from Sephora and I loved the results so much so that I would like to continue, but it is pretty expensive. I really need to shift my thinking away from makeup and concentrate on skin care more. Like that’s gonna happen!

Oh man, SO hard to answer. I was about to say Estee Lauder’s Invisible Fluid Makeup and then maybe a high end primer or powder, but after further thought I think I would rather use that money on brushes.

Hakuhodo G5553-2mm foundation brush ($54) and the G5545BkSL blush brush ($48). Obviously, that’s over $75 but it would definitely take most of the sting out of purchasing.

Probably that new Guerlain Meteorites pearls that you showed here. A 75 dollar gift card would be the perfect excuse to buy it or maybe I’d use it for one of the Marc Jacobs eye shadow palettes that I don’t really even want or need but would like to have as an indulgence!

I actually got a $100 Sephora gift card for Christmas. It didn’t last long in my wallet, spent on the 26th. I used it for UD’s Anarchy palette, Sephora + Pantone Radiant Cut palette, and Too Faced Chocolate Bar. But if I did get another gift card I would use it to purchase Marc Jacobs Stalet palette.

That makes 55 Euro. I would go for Diors Creme d’Rose Lip treatment (28 Euro) and a Bobbi Brown Creme shadow (28, Euro; I watched too many Lisa Eldrigde tutorials using them).

I have been really wanting to try the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum, so I would use the gift card for that and anything remaining would be put toward a Chanel product.

I was fortunate to receive a couple of Sephora gift cards for my birthday at the end of November, so I’m thinking about using them on Tom Ford Black Orchid. I wish they would carry Shanghai Lily. I sampled it in Santa Fe over the weekend and…oh my little goodness!

It’s funny that you brought this up, because just a few months ago I received a $270 beauty gift card and what I decided to do was to buy some really expensive things that I’ve been wanting but had a hard time taking the plunge. So now I did! Picked up a TF blush, the MJ blush brush, Guerlain pressed meteorites and a couple other things πŸ™‚

Hmmm…..I’d either get a new foundation (armani or guerlain), or get the shisheido pore primer and and possibly a chanel lipstick (rouge allure velvet in La Malicieuse). Either way I should have about $10 left over to cut into the costs of my next haul.

75$ is not really that much money … at least $150 you need for something really nice. I probably would get Cle de Peau body exfoliator. But if I had 150$, I would get La Prairie white caviar hand cream:)))

There’s a few things I have on my wish list so the trick is just figuring out which one to get right now:

1) LORAC Pro palette $42
2) Urban Decay Vice 2 palette $59 (or $56 I can’t remember)
3) Marc Jacobs Lolita palette $59
4) Urban Decay Naked 3 palette $52

That is the order of preference pretty much. But honestly I might have to go for the Vice 2 palette because I looked it up on sephora.com to double check the price and it was gone. :O So it might be disappearing soon! Ahhh!!

Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening toner and either Clarins or Nuxe cleanser for sensitive skin.

Skincare has become very important lately – my skin doesn’t deal well with these harsh winters and the more I can take care of it and wear less foundation, the happier it is πŸ™‚

Well I have an awesome brother who knows his sister so well and he gifted me a $100 sephora gift card for Christmas… I just spent it yesterday, I got hour glass ambient lighting powder in dim, 2 urban decay glitter liners and Bobbi Brown lipgloss
