I got a $20 giftcard to Sephora, what should I purchase? What would get me the biggest bang for my buck?



tap sort low to high . i would reccommend the marvis 7 day flavor sampler. we all need toothpaste. also cocofloss. for 8$

Re: Giftcard!

The Stila artist inspiration pallette is great and its only 15 dollars right now. Also Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner is amazing. I absolutely love it!!

Re: Giftcard!

Rosebud Salve. I keep it with me at all times. I use it as a lip balm, on dry hands/elbows everyday, everywhere and I'm still less than halfway through the tin...and I've had it for months. Also, Im really happy that I got the Sephora Lip Brush, it saves me a fortune everyday because it takes out every last bit out of lipsticks/balms.

Re: Giftcard!

1.  spend it on what you need (e.g.  if you're running low on your fave cleanser)

2.  or spend it on something pricey that you've had your eye on for a long time (like a nice bottle of perfume)

3.  or get some good deals on the weekly deals or sales (

4.  or get a multi-purpose palette like suggested by fufalita, which I always find to be great value and help

Re: Giftcard!

You could get a Stila Color Wheel pallette from the Sale section, it is $25 but if you put in the extra $5 with your gift card, you would be getting an awesome value. There are 37 eyeshadow shades, a couple of brushes and a great instruction book. (I got one with my Christmas money, I can hardly wait until it gets here!)

Re: Giftcard!

I would get a good lipgloss or lipstick which are usually around $20.

Just an idea . . . Smiley Happy

Personally i would go with a good mascara. I find that sometimes i cant always find good foundations because they wont match my skin tone and they can be overly expensive but every mascara i've bought on sephora has proved me well and I LOVE THEM! definatley go with that, hope i helped

It depends on what you need but I think you get the most...

It depends on what you need but I think you get the most out of palettes. Most palettes are over $20 but to be able to contribute to purchasing a palette is always a plus! I am obsessed with eye shadow palettes but there are so many that are combinations of eye, face, lips. Sephora is your makeup oyster! Enjoy spending the $20!
