Sephora wants your old makeup


POSTED: Thursday, October 08, 2009

Beauty enthusiasts could use a financial break, too, so with the recent Cash for Clunkers auto trade-ins still in mind, Sephora has initiated its own Cash for Beauty Clunkers program for its Beauty Insiders members, who were emailed a promotional bar code.

We've all had run-ins with gummy, sticky lip-glosses; dry dusty eyeshadows; and moisturizers too light, too heavy or too greasy for our skin. For a limited time, through Monday, Sephora stores, including those at Pearlridge and Ala Moana, are offering Beauty Insiders the opportunity to bring in five unwanted beauty items (preferably clean, with no leaks, spills or drips) and trade them for $10 off a purchase of $50 or more.

If you're not a member of the program, look for someone who is willing to let you use their bar code, then sign up at the store to be included in future promotions.
