What Would You Spend a $100 Sephora Gift Card On?

If you - just by chance - had a $100 gift card from Sephora burning a hole in your pocket, what would you spend it on? I want to know.

I almost always have a Sephora shopping list already, but I wondered what you are needing in the beauty product department. It is so fun to share and learn what products other beauties like and need. Who knows, maybe your little fairy Godmother of beauty will have a little something for you.  ;) But you do have to share.

Tell me in the comments what you would spend $100 on at Sephora.

I need to restock my Skyn facial care stuff and buy some Philosophy Soul Owner for sandal season!
What would I buy at Sephora with a $100 gift card? Where to begin?! First, I would have to get some Philosophy Hope in a Jar, because it's wonderful. Then, maybe some $OPI Polish, especially from the new mermaid-inspired collection. Then I'd probably get a mini-makeover, and buy the products I was really impressed with. I'm stuck in a bit of a rut with my look, and that would be a great way to find a new look.
I also have a sephora wishlst. I love that feature on their website. I love buying their value sets. There is a boscia skincare one I have my eye own and also philosophy's beach party. Oh, can't forget all the BE sets. I tried a sample of REN's skin renewal mask and loved it so I need a full-size. I like Kat Von D's new eyeshadow palette and Tarte and Too Faced summer collections. That's way over $100, but if I got a gift card I would definately splurge on an expensive lipstick (YSL or Dior).
I'd get the Bare Minerals starter kit.
I would have to get what I've been longing for since I first smelled it - DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom Eau de Parfum and something else I've heard rave reviews of - Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer!
My wishlist is always on my mind:
#1 MUFE HD Primer
#2 MUFE HD Foundation in #115
Clinique Clarifying lotion #2
Clinique Buttershine Lipstick in Perfect Plum
Shu Eyelash Curler
I would definitely get the Urban Decay Primer Potion since I just tried a little tube of it and it's amazing. And I'd get my friend and me each a bottle of Pacifica Ruby Guava shower gel, because she loves the scent but says it's too expensive, and I say when it smells that good it really doesn't matter. And I think I'd also get myself a bottle of Philosophy Amazing Grace shower gel, since I have a little tube of it and it's one of the most relaxing scents ever. I since I'd still have about $20 left I'd get my mom a bottle of the Pacifica Lotus Garden lotion as part of her birthday present (her birthday is next month).

Yay, that was fun planning. :D
I like to pretend shop a lot on the Sephora site and add a bunch of things to my bag but not really go through with it. LOL. If I had $100, I think I would buy a bunch of mascaras! I would get the YSL Faux Cils, YSL Everlong, DiorShow Black Out, Blinc Kiss Me, and Imju Fiberwig! Whoops I think that's definitely over $100!
-Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer $42.00
-Sephora by OPI Nail Polishes in Blue Grotto, Arm Candy, & I Need Space $9.00 each
-Mini Brow Kit by ANASTASIA $25.00
* NARS Multiple in St. Barts (perfect for summer)- $37
* Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in Ozone (clear- to use when I'm rocking the dark/red lipstick)- $16
*Too Faced Papa Don't Peach Blush (love the pinup girl packaging)- $19.50
*Urban Decay Flavored Body Powder - Marshmallow (great for some shimmer and I love the leopard print puff)- $26

I think I used all but $1.50...
Definitely YSL Touche Eclat, Juicy Couture Perfume, and the new Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin. Is that more than $100? oops!
I would put it towards a TRIA. I want to never have to shave again.
MUFE Full Cover concealer $30
MUFE Microfinish Powder $30
Lavanilla Pure Vanilla Rollerball $18
Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo $19

I'll leave the rest of the gift card to cover NYC tax...
I would take the opportunity to get some good makeup brushes, Sephora Brand Perfect Ten Brush Set ($150 Value), and a pair of Tweezerman Tweezers!!


Thanks
I would stock up on Shesheido sunscreen and splurge on some Dior! I've never been able to try Dior because it's so expensive but I've always wanted to try...
I too could drop $100 at Sephora in the blink of an eye, but here's what I''d buy if I was headed there today:

Kate Somerville ExfoliKate® Intensive Exfoliating Treatment $55 (got a free sample of this from my last Sephora order, and it's AMAZING!!!! A must-buy)

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Sin $17 (been dying to try this!)

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Deviant and Gunmetal ($16 each, which puts me $8 over, but I am rounding out my collection of these fabulous pencils)

OH, and I would get the AmorePacific Treatment Enzyme Peel sample (enter code at checkout)
I would probably spend it on some quality skincare products; it doesn't matter what you put on your face if you have unhealthy skin. I have always wanted to try "Hope in a Jar" and I've heard some pretty good things about Fresh "Soy Cleanser"...
I have also been DYING to try that crazy Givency mascara that everyone has been talking about :)
I love beauty product chat!
I'd get the most bang for my buck by getting a best-selling kit of some sort. That way I get lots of products and get to try something new at the same time!
I want the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer in the worst way. I almost broke down and bought it at Sephora a few weeks ago but they were out of my shade!
I'd start with Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Hydrating foundation (http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P230421&categoryId=C10472), then grab some Philosophy Help Me (http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P4647&shouldPaginate=true&categoryId=3866), and finish with a bottle of OPI for Sephora's Mermaid to Order (http://www.sephora.com/browse/section.jhtml?categoryId=C20642). Thaat leaves $1 towards sales tax. ;)
OOooh, I wants, since I am jobless and am on a beauty-no-buy right now. I need some summer essentials! So first and foremost: A FOUNDATION BRUSH! I can never afford brushes. I also need some waterproof eyeliner, a moisturizer with SPF, and some good ol' bronzer!

Sephora Air Brush, 34$
Urban Decay Baked Bronzer 24$
MUFE Aqua Eyes Collection, 35$
Sephora Brand Age Prevention Moisturizer, 20$

Okay, so I went a LIIIIITTLE over. But you get the idea! :D
I would get MUFE foundation
Talika Lipocils
and YSL lipstick!
I would buy Stila brushes. First their lip brush because you can put some lipstick or gloss on the brush and put the cap over it & then you're good to go! Another purchase would be their double - sided illuminating powder brush because it has many uses: with the bigger end I can apply foundation, blush or contouring shades and blend them, the smaller end is great for applying product to smaller areas of your face or brushing of eyeshadow fall off. If there was any $ left I would buy their famous Kitten eyeshadow, I just love golden eyeshadows!
Usually, I would be all over skincare products, but I think what I really need is some good, waterproof eyeliners as my eyes get a tendency to water when it's hot and humid. Therefore, with apologies to my skin for once, I would buy the MUFE AquaEyes in Matte Black, Light Brown, and Dark Gray and the MUFE Aqua Cream Liner in Matte Black and Matte Brown.
Oh so many choices...I would purchase the smashbox photo primer, urban decay eye primer, and any monies left would go to a leave in hair product with UV protection for those upcoming beach days!! Thanks!
