I would probably use the money to buy some really nice gifts for my family. Winning this prize would truly help with the Christmas gifts. I would probably buy a nice hair dryer for me and then see what my family wants and get them what they want.

I’d put some of the money in savings, boring I know. Then I’d use the rest to pay for any schoolbooks my scholarship doesn’t pay for next semester. Oh, the life of a college student.

It’s tough to decide what I’d spend the money on! I’d probably buy something practical (I need a new pair of gym shoes) as well as something fun (e.g. makeup). The Burberry eyeshadow quads have been on my wish list.

15% back on Bobbi Brown Cosmetics is pretty fabulous! I would definitely take advantage of that and get myself some of her famous Shimmer Bricks. I have yet to try them out 🙂

I would use the $250 to finally get the inglot rainbow shadows I’ve been lusting after. Then use the rest to build up my nail polish collection 🙂

Makeup wise, I would get the LORAC Pro Palette, Naked Palette, and maybe a YSL rouge lipstick and lipgloss. I really need a makeup storage cabinet though, so if I was lucky enough to win I would probably go that route. Thank you!

If its beauty related then I would buy a clarisonic & kat Von d’s lock it tattoo foundation otherwise it would be spent on my Xmas Disney vacation 🙂

Quite honestly I would spend my $250 on workout attire and skincare! I don’t need anymore makeup and since I’m trying to lose weight I can’t really buy nice clothes since I’ll probably be dropping some inches off here soon. At least I hope so lol!

I would use the $250 on MAKEUP! I am dying for some OCC Lip Tars and I haven’t bought anything MAC in months! I love ebates! I shop for alot of makeup online and between coupons an free shipping and cash back? I don’t know how people don’t use this site!

It’s not really fun, but I would use that money to replace the money I’m spending on gifts. I know that’s lame, but times are tight, and I’m not going to just not get people gifts — that’s no fun!

I think I’d save it until after the new year and then spurge after the New Year at Sephora! I’m hoping for some exciting spring releases! And it’d be a good chunk of my VIB renewal.

But there are some pretties from Smashbox I’ve been eyeing… Hmmm.

I would pick up the new Burberry lipsticks, likely a new perfume, and the rest on some of the many fabulous nail polishes you’e reviewed lately. I think the majority of my cosmetic wishlist is now nail polish!

I would buy Tarte and kat von d. on amazon. It´s the only shop I know that ships international. You can´t buy these brands here, so I would make a huge order! 😀

I would love to get a new Kate Spade bag. It’s been one of my dream brands of buying a purse from. I try and save a little bit of money from every paycheck to go towards a “nice” purse. The $250 would definitely help!

I’d love to use it on makeup for myself, especially some Guerlain lipsticks I’ve been wanting to try! But would probably use it on presents for my many sisters. Maybe they would like Guerlain??

I would use the money towards something for the house. It’s so flipping boring to say that, but we just painted and redid the living room after knocking a wall out, and I’d love to hit up the holiday sales and get some gorgeous accent pieces for the walls and for around the room.

I haven’t quite decided… I will save up for a big occasion and then splurge on something expensive… perhaps a pricey highlighter that you’ve talked about on Temptalia 🙂

Although I don’t comment much, but I’ve been a silent reader for about a few months now and I always go to your site to look at reviews and look for new products to try out.

As for what I’d spend with the $250 on ebates??? I’d probably splurge it all on Sephora! Mostly skincare products and some UD products!

I’d use the $250 for the checkup at the vet for my cat that I keep putting off. She’s a senior cat and the blood work for that is a lot of money.

i’ve always wanted to try bobbi brown or lancome products. and i’d definitely get a gift for my mom because she doesn’t get enough thanks for what she does!

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!

I’ve hoarded so much makeup and beauty products this month–because of all the sales. I need some new winter clothes so I would spend the money on that.

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.

Although I’d love to use this to spoil myself, I think I would use the $250 towards paying for bills for my parents. With this rough economy, we need to help each other as much as we can… Merry Christmas to all Temptalia readers (including Christine, Mellan, & Shaun!)

I would use the money to continue my seatch for the perfect foundation. As well as some retro sponge curlers, vintage silk scarves and hair spray. I’m wanting to do a lot more w fun retro hair styles ( think victory rolls).

I would use $250 on Sephora,Neiman marcus!
Lot of beige color blush,hot pink lipstick,sparkly eyeshadow.
Maybe there are Illamasqua,Tom ford,MUFE,Laura Mercier,Givenchy etc.
I feel so EXCITED XD!

What an awesome offer to have an unexpected chunk of cash! As tempting as it is to spend it on beauty items, I would have to use it for clothes and shoes for the family. It seems like our wardrobes are turning to rags!

I think we’re supposed to say makeup stuff, but honestly, my wardrobe needs more an upgrade than my makeup collection. Sadly I’d probably only be able to buy 5 pieces with that much ):

I think its nice i could really use it the holidays are here i can’t even do for my kids cause i live off of a check that comes once a month

I would definitely use at least part of the $250 to buy more OCC stuff now that Sephora stocks more of the line. I’d also probably buy a new pair of jeans or too since, like makeup, you can never have too many pairs of jeans.
