Ry GuyKAREN: Tabs the Cat Industries, LLC, Office of the President, Karen speaking. How may I help you?


RYGOS: Ryan Gosling Incorporated, Office of My Living Room, Ryan speaking.

KAREN: Ryan, you’re hella dumb!

RYGOS: Excuse me, what was that? Who says “hella”?

KAREN: Only the cool kids say hella… So you’re excluded, haha!

RYGOS: Oh, she has jokes.

KAREN: Yeah, yeah…

Dude, I’m kind of busy, so I can’t really chat right now. What’s up?

Jokes. I haz them.

RYGOS: Oh, I’m sorry. You’re busy. Because you’re so important that you can’t make time for your old friend Ryan anymore.

KAREN: Ah, poor Ryan… It’s so hard to find somebody to talk to when you’re a famous actor.

RYGOS: Hey, now.

KAREN: Don’t worry. You’re still my number one favorite shirtless actor. I’m actually just trying to get out of here because I have dinner plans with El Hub tonight. It’s our eighth wedding anniversary.

RYGOS: Wow, eight already? Are you finally gonna give El Hub that medal?

KAREN: What medal?

RYGOS: You know, that medal for putting up with you. 🙂

KAREN: (…) What do you want, Ryan?

RYGOS: I need to get my sister a present.

KAREN: Go on. I like where this is headed.

RYGOS: She said she wanted a red lipstick from NARS, but of course I have no idea which one to get, so I thought I’d call my favorite crazy cat lady/friendly neighborhood beauty addict.

KAREN: Aw, flattery will get you everywhere.

RYGOS: Really? I’ve never heard that.

KAREN: OK, here’s what you do. Wait until July 15th, because that’s when the new NARS Night Caller fall collection comes out.

NARS Mondore Satin Lip Pencil

NARS Mondore Satin Lip Pencil, $25 (limited edition)

There’s a limited edition Satin Lip Pencil in the release called Mondore. It’s a beautiful, rich, warm satiny lipstick, sort of halfway between brick red and deep cranberry.

Not your typical red lip, so it’s kind of special.

It’s also super smooth, lasts for hours, and it’ll even stay put through dinner and drinks.

Your sis will love it.

RYGOS: Sounds perfect! But the 15th, huh? I’m not sure I’m going to be in town on the 15th.

KAREN: Why don’t you just ask your assistant to get it?

RYGOS: C’mon now! I’m not so big for my britches that I can’t shop for my own sister’s present.

NARS Mondore Swatch

KAREN: OK. Well, if you can’t get to a NARS boutique on the 15th, you can order it online at narscosmetics.com.

Or you could just wait for August 1, which is when it arrives at Sephora stores and NARS counters.

RYGOS: Aw, thanks, K. What would I do without you?

KAREN: Live a miserable life being really bored because you’d have nobody to tell you crazy cat lady stories.

In addition to Mondore, I’m also wearing Dolomites Duo Eyeshadow, Night Clubbing Eyeliner and Unlawful Blush

RYGOS: Haha! Truer words were never spoken.

KAREN: Is that it? I really have to go now.

RYGOS: Alrighty, bud. You tell that hubby of yours hi, and remind him about our fishing trip on the 23rd.

KAREN: Don’t you mean your bromance trip?

RYGOS: Oh, you’re hilarious.

KAREN: I know.

RYGOS: You belong on late-night television.

KAREN: Yeah, I’ve got jokes for days.


RYGOS: Months even!

KAREN: Alright! I’m hanging up now.

    I loved reading this, Karen! You are so creative! That eye shadow duo is calling my name, just like the majority of NARS’s duos, and the blush looks promising, too.

  2. Heidi says:

    You know, Karen, if you’re just too busy to deal with RyGos when he calls, you could just send him my way! I really wouldn’t mind helping him out — for YOU of course!

    I’m really loving what I see with this NARS collection. Gorgeous colors.

    Karen, can I please tell you I discovered your blog a few days ago and I’ve literally been obsessively reading past posts for hours every night after I put my little girl to bed. I love it. And I love that new NARS shadow duo. Do u think it would look good on someone with my coloring- I’m fairly pale but not like porcelain pale.

  6. Thanks for entertaining us, Karen! BTW, happy 8th wedding anniversary with your hubby!!

    Love that lipstick shade

  8. Lulle says:

    This is another great looking collection by Nars after the awesome Adult Swim for Summer. The lip products in particular are super exciting! But I’m really not in autumn mood yet, I still want to enjoy my coral and apricot shades for a few months!

    This is my favorite group from Night Caller! I wonder if all the chat time with Ry Gos lately is going to make JRenn jealous. Or is that the plan?

  11. Sylirael says:

    Ah, more awesome Karen creativity 🙂

    I also like the look of that pencil – I get the feeling it’ll show up quite differently on different skintones, too. I wonder how it’ll pull on my skintone: ‘fluorescent cool-neutral vampire’? 😉

  13. Natalie says:

    Oh that RyGos. He’s too cute. That red is gorgeous! I love that tone for fall. The shadows are also super pretty. This collection is going to be dangerous. Lol.
