Published in: Makeup

I won’t pretend that I didn’t try to fit Tabs into the case that comes with the new Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Oh La Luxe holiday kit ($79, available now at Sephora and also online), but you know…husky.


Here are those swatches I mentioned I’d do. Not really up to a whole lot today. So far I went for a run, cleaned up a little, started reading a new book (All These Things I’ve Done, by Gabrielle Zevin), and now I’m craving pumpkin gelato and trying to think of a way to sweet talk El Hub into getting me some.

Yup, action packed day. πŸ™‚

How about you? What are you up to this afternoon?

    Ooh, I love all of it. I do have a birthday this month….

    I channeled my inner domestic diva today. No time for make up fun.

  3. Heidi says:

    Wow, quite a swatching frenzy you were on there! Just got back from hitting up a 20% off sale at Big Lots and taking advantage of some Extra Bucks at CVS. All stocked up on necessities now.

    • Karen says:

      Nice! What did you get?

      • Heidi says:

        At Big Lots I mostly got stuff for the house (cleaning stuff, paper goods), but I also picked up a box of Christmas cards. Yes, I know it’s way early but they have a nice selection now and with the discount I had to go for it.

        At CVS I picked up a couple of new items from Salma Hayek’s Nuance line. They are these three in one eye wands, with a cream shadow, a highlighting stick and a automatic pencil liner all in one wand. So handy! I’m trying out the pewter/silver one today. We’ll see how well it wears throughout the day.

    Gah, Cable Car and Celestine are SO pretty!

    Today I took advantage of the beautiful weather by playing a bit of tennis. Otherwise, not a very exciting Sunday (catching up on work..).

    They’re pretty but loose powders and me don’t work too well together.

    I started to plan my wedding! We’re getting married in a little over a year from today!

    Very nice! I love Holiday Collections πŸ˜€

    ooo! The liner is pretty, but bare escentuals is just not good makeup for traveling! I have so many eye shadows and extra foundations that sit in a box in my closet now because I travel so much for work. I may buy some of their new duos and quads though!

    That song is in my head now!

  10. Vonvon says:

    Exotic Victoria is so pretty!

    I really want that bag only so much! πŸ˜‰

    I love the Killers’ song “All These Things That I’ve Done”. πŸ™‚ And, btw, what do you think of Footloose being remade? Of course I liked it back in the day, but I didn’t think it was screaming for a 2nd go. Then again, I guess I felt that way about the Karate Kid, too.

    • Karen says:

      Hi, hi!

      I’m really grumpy about it getting remade, to tell you the truth. It didn’t need to be re-done! Did you hear they are now also remaking Scarface? I’ve also heard rumors about Back to the Future getting remade. Sacrilege!

  12. Nina says:

    i am not sure i want to commit to a bunch of loose eyeshadows but those swatches are tempting! i only have 3 BE/BM eyeshadows and while i love them, they dont get much use!

    speaking of pumpkin gelato, i had some yesterday at a quaint little coffee shop while waiting for the hubs. yum!

    • Karen says:

      How was your gelato? Mine was really delish… I went a little crazy and got an extra scoop of caramel pecan too. Whoops! Now I need to run it off. πŸ™‚

      Did you end up working this weekend?

      • Nina says:

        so good! i actually mixed pumpkin spice and dulce de leche – yusss! (ps — great minds think alike!)

        i did. both friday night and saturday very early morning. it wasnt that bad. πŸ™‚ im just glad i was done by the time we were ready to leave the house (finally, we stayed in saturday because it was raining a lot!)….
