Sephora is an internationally known beauty boutique founded in 1993. Sephora is also popular in over 15 countries worldwide. We live in a century where money is more than just an object, but an ongoing problematic issue that seems to plague the vast majority of status quo society. Not everyone can afford to spend hundreds upon hundreds, let alone thousands on makeup products. It is a well known fact that there are millions of beauty products in the world today. The time is Spring and the year is 2011, so I have decided to narrow down the numerous makeup gifts under $25 at Sephora to only the top 10.
