25 Days of Giveaway

[ Edited ]



Hey guys and gals -


I know with all the problems that's going on right now (cancelled orders, no good deals for BF weekend, etc) that Sephora has had many people feeling pretty down but I just saw this on the main page :: 25 Days of Merry Crazy Giveaway. Each day in December, they will be featuring a different deluxe sample and 100 point perk.  Here are the perks so far

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

I was really hoping as a nice surprise Sephora would make all days of mini's  available today as a nice Christmas surprise....especially as some sort of Rouge appeasement.....but alas no....good thing I expect nothing at this point. BAHUMBUG Smiley Wink

Did anyone else grab a L'Eau de Chloe? All in all I've gotten I think ten of the minis in this promo. Good thing I've been hoarding points all year! 


Interesting that so many of the last ones are not sold out yet. Did everyone run out of points? Or just burn out on shopping? (Unlikely, I know...)

I don't even collect mini but I grabbed most of them. I used them as stocking stuffers. Before the holidays I have over 3k points and now after all the 500pts and the 25 days mini giveaway...Im down to 4pts!!! Im hoping january is double points so I can have points again. I'm uncomfortable having less than 1000 now ;-)

I suspect people ran out of points toward the end, especially if they weren't on Beauty Talk to know what was coming. 


I got Prada Candy L'Eau, Prada Infusion d'Iris, Givenchy Dahlia Noir, Ana Sui, Acqua di Parma, and the Dolce Gabanna 500 pt perk. I think that's everything; I know that I had all of the other women's fragrance perks. I don't have too many points left, but a great collection of minis!

Silly me, I forgot that I got Kenzo Flower as well. Smiley Happy

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

I expected the Anna Sui one to go within the first few hours, I was surprised it didnt

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

So I resisted the point perk fragrance minis for 22 days. And on the 23rd day, I succumbed to the Anna Sui mini. I've only started wearing perfume the last two months and I do not even know what this smells like, but the bottle is so cute, the reviews are good and the fragrance notes sound amazing. Plus, if I can't justify splurging on the Anna Sui Minnie Mouse collection (which is to die for), at least I can get this Anna Sui mini. I'll pretend it's the fragrance Minnie Mouse would wear Smiley Tongue


Plus, I used a free shipping code, so I got a Soap and Glory hand cream, Anna Sui mini and three samples for only $5.45! 


What the hey, I don't have to justify myself, my fellow BTers just get it! 


Happy Holidays!!

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

I snagged the Prada Candy one, and the Anna Sui today. I'm sorry, it can smell like cat pee, but I HAD TO HAVE that bottle.

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

Oh noooo!! Anna Sui can smell like cat pee?? I guess I can call and try to get my points back if it really does smell like urine, and I cannot wear it. :/


But now I'm worried!

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

LOL no sorry- I mean, for all I care, it could smell horrible, but the bottle was so cute I had to have it!

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

[ Edited ]

LOL!! It came out so differently when I read it in my head!

I know, I think the bottle did it for me, too!

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

Yes, the cap for Downtown is just a tube.  Odd, but cute.  Calvin Klein minis are all sprays and .5oz.  (My mom is getting me a set of older fragrances for Christmas; oddly I have never tried any of them but my sister really likes Obsession.)


I picked up the adorable Anna Sui mini this morning.  I guess waking up in the middle of the night has some advantages.


I wonder if the 25th really will be Chloe again.  It looks like it from the preview pictures, but that's odd.  Hopefully anyone who missed it can pick it up then.  There just seem to be many other things they could have.  (I do suspect that they had some companies more willing to work with them than others, though.)

I love Obsession...I used to wear it all the time and still wear it now.  What else is in the set?

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

(0) Hearts

The set also has Eternity, Escape, and CK One. I think there's a newer set as well. 


The funny part is my mom got my sister Obsession because she mentioned wanting it, and then my other sister got her this same set. Smiley Happy I think I've seen a later one that has Euphoria in it. 

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

Oh the .5oz Downtown mini is a spray! Yes!!! However, just to confirm, the cap for it doesn't have a top, right? Just a tube so you can see the top of the spray? Haha, the two minis I got (Downtown&prada iris) turned out to be just my normal style, minimalism with just a bit of quirky thrown in.

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

My Kenzo mini arrived today and it is much prettier than I was expecting, plus I like the scent. It is still available, so I ordered another one.


Kenzo has a new fragrance, not available at Sephora, and the mini for it is so beautiful. It is in a set from one of the big department stores. Cannot remember which store.


The Downtown mini I received from Nordstrom is not a spray and is around .17; I like the smaller minis, so I like it much more than the .5 that Sephora offered. If someone wants the .5 please PM me.


The .5 has been claimed.

Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

i saw the new kenzo mini on macys.com Smiley Happy it is SO beautiful. you do not exaggerate! 


Re: 25 Days of Giveaway

Ooo, I'd love to see how the Kenzo mini looks in person!

Adorable! Now I wish I had ordered some of the minis, like Prada Candy and this. Oh well, not being spray bottle is a big demotivator. =/

I just can't resist! I'm a sucker for well-designed objects (even if they're not as functional as I'd like...)
