A Makeup and Beauty Blog giveaway

Win a $50 Sephora eGift card from Makeup and Beauty Blog


Two of my favorite things: Starbucks and Sephora.

Starbucks. Don’t ask me why because I’m not really sure, but last night El Hub and I watched three hours of a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills marathon, which was actually a lot of fun, except that it kept us up way past midnight, but we told ourselves that we were going to get Starbucks this morning, “Because we’re grownups like that, and we can get Starbucks if we want to.”

And we do. ๐Ÿ™‚

So now I’m getting ready to go get my caffeine on, haaay! And I’m so excited! I can’t stop using exclamation marks!

And Sephora. Of course you knew this one already, but Sephora is one of the greatest stores on this or any planet, and here in Novato it’s conveniently located in the very same Vintage Oaks shopping center as the closest Starbucks.

Unfortunately, it’s still too early in the morning and the Sephora is closed.

Grrr… Universe: 1. Karen: 0.

(First world problems.)

Looks like I’ll have to wait a few hours to get my Sephora fix, but you won’t have to. You can get yours right now in this giveaway.

This is how we do it! Dum dum-dum dum-dum-dum — this is how we do it!

    Two things I’m excited about lately: nail polish (which is so weird because usually I’m not)and Thrifty’s ice cream. My local Rite Aid just got renovated and they’re going to be serving Thrifty’s ice cream! If you’ve never had this ice cream before, totally try to find it, it’s worth it!

Btw, if the ship is sinking I’m totally grabbing my first-aid kit and makeup bag. I’ve got two arms haven’t I? #overpacker

    Manual toothbrush!

    Mmm… Starbucks. If the weather is hot, I’ll take a lime refresher, if it’s cold, then make it a chai tea latte with soy. Oh, and if they have their chocolate cinnamon bread, bring it on!

  32. Lia A. says:

    Snack would be the holiday special toffee nut brownie and drink would be caramel frap! ๐Ÿ™‚

  33. sienna says:

    I love the shaken ice tea lemonade at Starbucks.

  46. Icequeen81 says:

    Scrunchies, hair ties and clips All of them separtedly depends of the day and what I am doing

  47. Maria J. says:

    I prefer an electric toothbrush because I feel like you’re a deep clean similar to when you visit a dentist’s office and although an electric toothbrush can be on the pricey side of things it’s totally worth it in my opinion.

  48. Tonya N. says:

    My fave gal on youtube is Melmphs! I absolutely lovee her, and her super fun energy. She has a great story too. : )

  49. Jennifer says:

    It’s eternally depressing that I can no longer drink anything with caffeine, but I really like the cake pops from Starbucks! And I will always reach for hair ties before the rest since I have 2-3 on my wrist at any given time.

    Caramel Macchiato is my favorite Starbucks drink

  54. maria says:

    I love going to the beach everyday.

  55. Cheyenne Cire says:

    I’m in absolute love with the Double Chocolate Chip Frappuccino. It’s high in calories, though, so I only get it once in a while. :’)

  56. Jennifer Dysart says:

    Thanks as always, someday maybe I will get luck ๐Ÿ™‚

  57. Hollie H says:

    Favorite Starbucks combo…. Grande Non-fat Mocha with a slice of pumpkin loaf. OMG! Heaven.

  58. Ceciliana says:

    I love Starbucks too! But I gave it up to support my other addiction…makeup!

  59. Sylvia says:

    I’m fond of the Mocha Frap with no whip in the summer, and either a peppermint hot chocolate or Mocha with Cinnamon Dolce syrup in the winter.

  60. monse says:

    my absolute favorite starbucks drink is probably a soy iced chai tea latte OR a soy vanilla bean frapp. Being vegan doesn’t stop me from getting my starbucks fix!

  61. Rachel says:

    Hey, I like the contest widget!!

  62. Anne says:

    I could use a iced cafe mocha right now

  63. Peta says:

    I can’t get enough of the soy vanilla latte, I always have an excuse to get my Starbucks fix. My mother and I love Sephora, most if the girls in Time Square are awesome!

  64. We didn’t have a Starbacks near where we used to live in Belgium, but we do have one in Lausanne now and I just love going there! I always go for the (very predictable) large Americano coffee.

    Hair tyes!

  66. Thanks for the giveaway! If the shop is sinking, I’m grabbing the sunscreen. I don’t need wrinkly, leathery skin on top of all the stress from being stranded!

  67. Claudia Davis says:

    Since you asked….in college I worked at a place called California Smoothie. I got fired so quickly because I could not no matter what, remember the ingredients in all the smoothies. It drove me crazy as well as my boss. I hated that place. I moved on to working at the Nature Company and loved it, especially the chocolate and candy samples.

  68. Alix says:

    Boy, is it muggy out!

  69. NLM8 says:

    Starbucks cake pops are an awesome treat! Perfect little snack

  70. BooBooNinja says:

    We got Sonicare toothbrushes last week and love ’em.
    The cat, however, doesn’t know what to think! ๐Ÿ™‚

  71. Maria says:

    I love sephora either in the store or online! They are the beauty master! I’m a beauty VIP and rack up the points really fast. Starbucks is awesome….love my grande every day!

  72. Sarah says:

    I wear pigtails to the gym for practical reasons.

  73. buckycatt says:

    Karen –

    Still thinking of you and Tabs and El Hub. Hope you are well and that your sadness is getting a little better everyday. Take care & hug
    Tabs early & often!

  74. Rebecca says:

    Pocket knife! I can use it to excise precancerous moles, but I can’t break open a coconut with SPF 55!

    I’ve discovered the Misto, which is half regular coffee and half steamed milk. I get skim milk and Blonde roast if they have it. It’s actually more caffeine than a latte and costs half as much, with lots of good protein from the milkand only 100 calories in a grande. Add some Splenda and a sprinkle of nutmeg and it’s good.
    My favorite, though, is the Toffee Nut Latte with whipped creme, a caramel drizzle, and toffee chips on top. Yummy yummy. So naughty.
    It’s my birthday! Please choose me. I will buy myself a present.

  75. sonia says:

    Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino <3

  76. MiMi says:

    รขโ‚ฌยข Have you ever worked at a restaurant? Yes, and never again! Not even if I was the ownder.
    Manual or electric toothbrush? Electric – I need the BUZZ
    รขโ‚ฌยข In a dessert island scenario, as the ship is sinking, do you grab the bottle of sunscreen or the pocket knife? Sunscreen, otherwise I’ll look like the leather luggage I couldn’t bring with me!
    รขโ‚ฌยข Who makes your favorite lip balm? CVS – they make a pomegranate lip balm

  77. Lorey says:

    Im in the process of putting purple back in my hair ๐Ÿ˜€

  78. Jaci says:

    Definitely the Vanilla Bean Frappe with Raspberry syrup. Tastes like cotton candy. ๐Ÿ™‚

  79. Joanne E. says:

    Iced Coffee in the summer, Cafe Mocha in the winter

  80. Kellie says:

    Sephora and Starbucks are my two fave places as well…..need a Starbucks run right about now! PS- Karen I am so sorry for your loss. Hope you are feeling better! My husband heard from a coworker once that the pain we feel when losing an animal companion is the price for all of the joy thy brought us in life. That saying helped me when I lost my beloved childhood cat a couple of years ago.

  81. Kirsten H. says:

    My favorite cold drink at Starbucks is an Iced Caramel Macchiato, and my favorite hot drink is a Peppermint Mocha.

  82. MLV says:

    Caramel Frapp & a concert. Oh yea!

  83. Doreena says:

    How’s everyone’s summer going?
    Mine is going great! I’m still unemployed & still having a tough time finding a job but at least it’s summer!
    Anyone have any good concerts coming up? My next one is the CMA Songwriters series in NYC! Looking forward to it.

  84. Amanda Hess says:

    I love Sephora!

  85. monica says:

    Strawberries and cream frap!! yum

  86. Sophie says:

    Can’t afford Starbucks too often these days, but I love their iced coffee with soy milk, no whipped cream. Simple and delicious. Oh, and a lot of ice!

    P.S., I’m crying now, reading your post about Shauna. I still can’t stop crying about losing my Walter and Sophie, in Dec. and April. Two beautiful, orange tabby cats, my best friends for 18 years. I still have 4 little loves, but you know when they’re special like that, you can never replace them! You just love who you have and move on, always remembering. And yes, there are dog and cat heavens. Where they wait for us with slobbering wet kisses and ankle and forehead rubs. We will see them again, never doubt that, Karen. >^.^<

  87. Tina Renee Barker says:

    In my opinion, the best lip balm is The Body Shop Shea Lip Care Stick!
    It keeps my lips moist & smells great too!

  88. Jessica says:

    My favorite Starbucks drink is the coffee frap and the egg white spinach wrap!

  89. Ruth says:

    I absolutely adore the Starbucks Caramel Macchiato!!

  90. Sandy says:

    Love watching makeup reviews on YouTube makes it easier to buy makeup without regrets

  91. Nicole says:

    I’m addicted to coffee fraps! They are sooo good =)

  92. LisaK says:

    Karen, I was so moved by your memories of Shauna. Thank you for sharing them with us. I am sorry for your family’s loss.

  93. Roda says:

    Wish Starbucks would bring back this one fruity tea drink they use to offer…forgot the name tho…

  94. Coco says:

    I love to order a Strawberries and Cream at Starbucks x

  95. Lucy Nguyen says:

    Greentea frapp with red beans! Yummy!!

  96. Kristina says:

    I’m so excited about my new basil plant. Can’t wait to make some yummy pesto.

  97. Jessica says:

    I have never worked in a restaurant but I was a server at an assisted living home at one time. I was fairly relieved when the time came to leave that job!

  98. LynnG says:

    My favorite lip balm is Korres Guava. I got from Sephora, of course.

  99. Jordi says:

    Agreed on Starbucks and Sephora being good together… one of our local malls has a Starbucks so close to Sephora that it’s hard to indulge in one without the other!

  100. Stephanie Ann says:

    I absolutely love starbuck’s mocha frapps!

  101. Vicki Salinas says:

    I love vanilla bean frapp! I got a job at Ruby’s Diner, but I didn’t show up for my first day because I decided waitressing wasn’t for me lol

  102. Danielle Dufault says:

    I love Starbucks. Recently this summer, when I order an Iced Coffee, I ask for some sugar-free mint syrup in it. Makes it sooo tasty and extra refreshing!

  103. Erika Beck says:

    I never use Scrunchies, hair ties or clips, but always HAIRSTICKS! It’s the only thing that really works for me! ๐Ÿ™‚

  104. Brittany K says:

    Caramel Macchaito! I probably botched the spelling but I love them so much that I stay away ๐Ÿ™‚

  105. Laney says:

    Hair clips, spin pins, scarves, or headbands. Hair ties tend to leave unsightly dents in my soft hair.

  106. Anna Wang says:

    I love your cat Tabs to death. He’s so handsome and cute!

  107. Larie says:

    Starbucks: extra hot, soy vanilla latte ๐Ÿ˜‰

  108. Esther says:

    I got a cat today!!! took in a stray from out in the parking lot. he’s an adorable orange tabby. I bet him and Tabs would get along well ๐Ÿ™‚

  109. Liz says:

    When I got my Sonicare toothbrush 10 years ago, it changed my oral hygeine forever. My teeth feel cleaner longer and I get compliments every dentist visit. I’ll never go back to a manual toothbrush.

  110. TrippyPixie says:

    My favorite lip balm is Medicated Chapstick. I keep trying to find a cruelty-free replacement for it, but I haven’t been able to find one that I like yet.

  111. Susan says:

    You rock girl! After the week you’ve had [so sorry about Shauna] you’re still thinking of your subscribers and doing nice things for us. Amazing.
    Have a lovely weekend!

  112. ReneeP says:

    I really like SBs for the fancy drinks but downdown Norcross has the best double tall cappuccinos.

  113. Adrianne B says:

    Electric toothbrush, all the way!

  114. Ashley says:

    I love Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce Lattes; especially with soy milk! Mmmm. And I’m already counting the days down until the Pumpkin Spice Latte reappears!
    I hope you have a great Saturday Karen! ๐Ÿ™‚

  115. Amber says:

    Cinnamon dolce frapuccino (nonfat, easy on the whip please!), yum! And my locks can only be tamed by a hair tie-clips and Scruncies just won’t do.

  116. Patricia says:

    Your post made me laugh because it reminded me of the many times I’ve actually driven to a store to just find out it opens an hour or two later *blush* And then there are the times I forget it’s a national holiday (I don’t pay much attention to them) and drive all the way to the mall only to find an empty parking lot (lol) Sometimes I feel like the little squirrel from ICE AGE (which I’ve watched a million times with my niece) desperately trying to get the nut (lol) Anyway, thanks again for another awesome giveaway and wishing everyone a wonderful weekend ๐Ÿ˜‰

  117. GenesisC says:

    It seems that your feeling better than the last couple of days. I’m happy.

  118. kelliegonzo says:

    i love starbucks… and your blog ๐Ÿ™‚

  120. Rosie says:

    I love pumpkin lattes in the fall and peppermint mochas in the Christmas season. The rest of the year I will have a regular latte and dream of cooler weather ๐Ÿ™‚
    Hope you are doing well

  121. Charisma says:

    I would be grabbing the knife if I was stuck on a deserted island! ๐Ÿ™‚

  122. Megan Beemster says:

    My favorite Starbucks drink kind of depends on the weather. In the summer, I tend to like Iced Green Tea with stevia, but in the winter, oh geez. It’s ON, haha. Caramel Macchiato, extra foam and an extra shot of espresso is my all-time favorite though.

  123. Lisa C says:

    My daughter’s first job was at Starbucks. She loves it there!

  124. Bianca Rogoveanu says:

    First of all, i love your blog.
    Secondly, i’m for the manual toothbrush :))
    Thank you for these awsome giveaways!

  125. Jamie says:

    my favorite drink from starbucks in the summer is the iced passion tea lemonade ๐Ÿ™‚

  126. Terrani says:

    I think I could survive solely off of pumpkin spice lattes for the rest of my life if I had to pick one drink. Or maybe a white chocolate peppermint latte. Starbucks is absolutely amazing, but not quite as amazing as Sephora!

  127. Eva says:

    When I still had long hair (down past my waist, so no kidding) I used to love hair sticks for keeping it in place. There’s a trick to getting them to stay!

  128. Kristina says:

    Hey Karen!!! So glad to see you sounding so much better. Sooo it’s a little known fact that Starbucks still manufactures these INCREDIBLE little cups of bottled Christmas joy…. Starbucks. Makes. CARAMEL APPLE SPICES. Yes, I know what you’re thinking. That’s what i thought too. How could this be?! I thought the spiced apple froth monsters were gone forever! BUT. It is completely factual. They still make them! Thus, suffice it to say that my most favorite drink in the history of ever from bucks in the Stars is Christmas in a Cup. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for still thinking of all your subscribers even after the hard week you’ve had! You’re always one to brighten up my day. xo

  129. Ivy says:

    Don’t you just hate it when it’s too early and your favorite stores aren’t open yet? I feel so awkward just standing in front of the store, waiting for it to open. So, that’s why I try not to be too early. Thank you for these giveaways!

  130. Alanna says:

    Chicken Sante Fe Panini and a Passion Tea Lemonade with half classic, half raspberry sweetener!

  131. Rebecca Cash says:

    I despise having to work on Saturdays!!

  132. brielle says:

    you are my new favorite beauty blog

  133. Dionne says:

    I love Caramel Iced Coffee!!

  134. Alice Beerland says:

    I love the lip balms by Korres!

  135. Tiffany says:

    Favorite Starbucks drink is the caramel machiato

  136. Petunia says:

    I love Sephora too. It is my happy place ๐Ÿ™‚

    A little shopping spree would be so much fun!

  137. Katie says:

    I love Starbucks and Sephora..nothing better than a vanilla latte, iced coffee or iced green tea and a new lipstick ๐Ÿ™‚

  138. sarah says:

    Why are they called hair ties? There’s no tying involved…

  139. Charlotte says:

    Electric toofbrushes!

  140. Jennifer says:

    My current favorite lip balms are from Epically Epic, an Etsy shop. They have many different flavors and I love every one I’ve tried.

  141. Calli says:

    pocket knife over sunscreen!

  142. Cynthia says:

    So excited about these giveaways!

  143. Paula says:

    I like the new iced orange drink Starbucks has, can’t remember what its called but yum!

  144. Bhevarri says:

    Favorite starbucks drink: iced mocha. YUM!

  145. Kylie says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! I would grab the pocket knife. I rather be able to hunt and protect myself and sacrifice my skin in return.

  146. Step says:

    Soy lattes are my go-to Starbucks drink

  147. Jenna D says:

    Electric toothbrush! My teeth feel much cleaner when I use an electric tooth brush and it’s easier to get all those back teeth.

  148. Gabi says:

    Starbucks is also one of my most favorite places in the world! I adore their caramel machiatos!

  149. lesleyk says:

    Cappuccino, and no scrunchies or ties for me — I have short hair, so it’s the occasional headband or barette/clip.

  150. tina says:

    Im currently watching Premium Rush and loving it but mostly because of Joseph Gordon Levitt!

  151. Nicole W says:

    No question – pocket knife!

  152. Chanelle (C.M.) says:

    I’ve never had anything at Starbuck’s other than oatmeal once.

  153. Katie F says:

    I’m not a fan of Starbucks for coffee, but sometimes if I want dessert I’ll get a Frappuccino…for a while they had a coconut mocha-type one that I really liked. It had toasted coconut on top, mmmm.

  154. Katty says:

    Electric toothbrush for sure. I don’t know how I ever lived without one.

  155. auroragyps says:

    Usually I like something simple, like an Iced Latte with coconut or cinnamon syrup. Last time I treated myself to a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino with cinnamon syrup & it was SO GOOD.. almost like a Snickerdoodle cookie. Good thing I hardly ever go to Starbucks, because it would be hard to resist getting that all the time.

    PS: I’m no Grammar Nazi, but I have to point out that you put DESSERT Island, only because it’s so darn funny. I thought you had some scenario going where if we could have an island where we’d have our favorite desserts, what would they be. Kind of like our own personal Candy Lands. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  156. Casey Hilgenbrink says:

    I used to work at a Starbucks so my favorite drinks are all kinda weird! I love having a vanilla bean frappuccino and blending one of the petite cherry pies in! So delicious!

  157. AmyD says:

    i’m craving donuts…

  158. Iliana says:


  159. Tricia says:

  161. Bcteagirl says:

    Grab the knife.. throw the sunscreen overboard and hope it floats and you can find it later! ๐Ÿ˜›

  162. Aelyn says:

    I’m old school when it comes to brushing my teeth!

  163. Lori P says:

  164. Allison says:

    Yay Starbucks! They are awesome, but I try not to get anything to often. I love their black tea and lemonades, and the green tea frappucino is awesome, but it’s really not good for me. I figured out how to make my own at home with only 60 calories instead of 450.

  165. Brooke says:

    Well, I freaking love Sephora, but the only one that’s less than like 6 hours away is a mini one in my J.C. Penney =( but, I’m still super excited about it, they only just put it in recently and I couldn’t believe my eyes when I walked in and saw it!! =D

  166. Liz says:

    Fave starbuck in the morning would be hazelnut latte or caramel macchiato and if I feel like want to drink something cold would be Caramel frappucino or ice caramel latte..and sometimes my boss would offer me one of course i would say yes hehe!Yep I’ve worked at the restaurant before over decade ago(not sure if still exist)tiring but fun too..ehm best youtube makeup tutorial Ithink that Ive seen so far is from Lisa eldridge..but I’ve seen other good makeup tutorials..theyre just amazing!

    Thank you for this great giveaway!

  168. Zoe says:

    Caramel Macchiato is my favorite Starbucks drink

  169. Janea says:

    Scrunchies, hair ties And clips. I stash them in my pockets, when I was still at high school, I stuck the clips to my tie. Just in case, my hair decided to be ridiculous.
    I’d have to say knife, I can’t really fend of the wild animals or crack open a coconut with sunscreen.

  170. jess says:

    I hate scrunchies. I love starbucks sparkling teas!! My fav lip balm is actually honey lipgloss by urban decay, soooo moisturizing, better then burts bees, chapstick, etc. id grab a knife for a deserted island and stuff the sunscreen in my bra.

    My Favorite Lip Product:
    Oddly enough, my favorite lip product is a men’s product! It is from Sephora and the brand is called Jack Black. They have a variety of scents such as Vanilla, Mint, Lemon, and Grapefruit (my favorite). They do not have a sweet taste, which is great, but they are all SO fragrant and wake up the senses when applied! I have tried hundreds upon hundreds of lip products for moisture, but this brand DEFINITELY takes the cake! I hope you all try them out and love them as much as I do!!! xx-Lana

    Karen- So sorry about your dear, sweet Shauna crossing the Rainbow Bridge. Losing a long- and well-loved pet is really hard emotionally. I love the pics you posted of her–she was a pretty girl and I could tell just by looking at her that she was a calm and sweet soul. Do you have the Rainbow Bridge prayer?

    One thing that helps me when I lose a pet is to make a donation in their name to the shelter/rescue group they came from or to a research fund.

  366. Grace says:

    I love pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks and always run when fall rolls around to get some. But for some reason, it only tastes good when its chilly out so in CA I usually have to wait a while before the weather matches my craving!!!

  367. Allison says:

    right now I have a killer sun burn and my clothes keep sticking to the aloe vera.

  368. Stephanie says:

    i like starbucks’ green tea & mocha fraps.

  369. Thanks for the giveaway! I am that weird person who does not like anything at Starbucks (except their baked goods)! I’m not a tea or coffee drinker and dislike their smoothies and hot chocolate. C’est la vie!

  370. Ashley says:

    Oh lala, there’s a certain Boscia product I’ve been eyeing…

  371. Kim says:

    I try to only drink coffee at Starbucks because drinking your calories is a terrible waste and is an insult to such worthy things as cake and cupcakes. And brownies, pie, cake pops, cookies… ๐Ÿ™‚

  372. I am addicted to Chapstick brand mint Chapstick. Like. Seriously addicted.

  373. Ash says:

    Double chocolate chip frappe ๐Ÿ™‚

  385. Cyrielle says:

  386. Kim says:

    Chapstick is the best ever

  388. Julia says:

    Manual toothbrush. I use pretty much all types of things in my hair except for scunchies!

  391. Katherine says:

    My parents are in town visiting me (from across the country) and we are having an amazing time!

  392. PW says:

    Electric toothbrush! Also, do you have some suggestions for Butter London nail polishes? They are having a sale and I cannot for the life of me decide on colours… I think my skin tone is similar to yours, so what are your favourite BL polishes?

  393. Tiffany says:

    Starbucks’ iced green tea latte that’s half sweet with light ice is perfection!

  394. meghan says:

    Before I went GF, my fave Starbucks snack was the birthday cake ball, hands down. SO DELICIOUS!! But now I stick to a chai latte or iced green tea, no milk/sugar. Thanks for the giveaway!

  395. Susan C. says:

    Hair ties and scrunchies all the way! They’re in the house, my purse and the car. Of course, a year ago I tried to upgrade my look with some cute sparkly barrettes and sophisticated clips, but they remain forgotten at the bottom of a drawer.

  396. Kimberly Allan says:

    I love caramel frappuccinos!

  397. Neha says:

    The best YouTube video I have ever seen is by tty pixiwoo, how to do look of Jennifer Lopez at Oscars 2012.i love all her videos, also I love Lisa Eldridge video on how to wear red lipstick. …love her…

  398. marisol says:

    Scrunchies 4 lyfe.

  399. Mel says:

    Manual toothbrush. I think an electronic face brush (my Clarisonic) plus an electronic toothbrush would be overkill. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  407. Sherry says:

    So sorry to hear about your sweet Shauna passing. It’s the worst. It takes a while to get over, for sure. On another note, my fave Starbucks drink is a decaf iced coffee with a little bit of cream and no sweetener. I know…I’m really boring!! Take Care!!

  408. terrib says:

    Favorite lip balm…I actually stopped wearing lip balm. Gloss or lipstick during the day, then nothing at other times and my lips are much better than they were when I used to use lip balm morning, noon, night.

  409. edna says:

    My favorite is the regular coffee frapp with whippedcream. :] I like it plainnn

  410. Amber X says:

    I was at Big Lots today and I happened to come across some extremely cheap cosmetics while I was there. They had drugstore brands as well as high end. Also, they had ELF brushes for $.95 and a huge assortment of eyeshadows priced at $1 – $2. So if you have a Big Lots near you, check out their cosmetics section.

  411. Belinda says:

    Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher!

  424. Kristin says:

    Fave Starbucks drink – caramel ribbon crunch frappe!

  425. Trucie says:

    My favorite drink at Starbucks is Green Tea Frappuccino.

    I’m currently working part-time at a restaurant.

    I prefer manual toothbrush. I remember when I was young, I asked my mom to buy me an electric toothbrush because I saw my cousin had one and it was SO cool, but my mom couldn’t afford it. I was sad. Then she bought me one on my birthday to surprise me; however, I found out that it wasn’t much different from manual toothbrush. I ended up feeling bad because it was a waste of money for my mom. ๐Ÿ™

    Best Youtube makeup tutorial I’ve ever since is a video from frmheadtotoe “How to Apply Blush & Highlighter.” I was amazed how just a little touch could make such a huge difference on her face. Makeup is AMAZING.

    I like hair tie. Especially the bow, it looks just WAY too cute.

    In a dessert island scenario, as the ship is sinking, I’d grab a bottle of sunscreen. Well, at least I’d keep myself from dying or getting cancer from sun burn, then find a way to swim home? Possible, isn’t it? HAHA.

    Korres Lip Butter is my favorite lip balm. I got it on sale at Sephora 2 years ago, that was the first time I’d been at Sephora. Before, I’d never spend $12 for just a lip balm, that sounded too fancy for me. But when I first applied it, it just felt so amazing on my lips, a light touch of color & kept my lips hydrating all day long. I was always having dry lips. And Korres lip butter has been my lips saver ever since.

    Honestly, I really want to win this gift card, I’d buy my mom some skincare product from Sephora that I’ve been aimed to do that since forever.

  431. Sun says:

    Love your blog…I feel like I’m living vicariously through you!

  432. Trucie says:

    My favorite drink at Starbucks is Green Tea Frappuccino because it doesn’t contain as much caffeine as other drink.

    I’m currently working part time at a restaurant as a cashier.

    I prefer manual toothbrush. I remember once when I was young, I asked my mom if she could buy me one, but it was hard for her to afford it at the time. I was sad I couldn’t have it because I saw my cousin had one and it was so cool. Then my mom bought me one on my birthday to surprise me. However I found it didn’t have much difference from the manual one. That was even more sad because it was a waste of money for my mom.

    Best Youtube makeup tutorial I’ve ever since is the video “How to apply Highlighter & Blush” from frmheadtotoe. I was amazed how a light touch can make a huge impact on her look. Makeup is AMAZING.

    I love hair ties, especially the bows in pastel colors, so cute.

    In a dessert island scenario, as the ship is sinking, I’d grab the bottle of sunscreen because it’d keep me from dying or getting cancer from sun burn, then I will find a way to swim home. Possible, isn’t it? HAHA.

    Korres Lip Butter is my most favorite lip balm all the time. I got it on sale at Sephora 2 years ago. That was the very first time I’d been at Sephora. Before that, for me, spending more than 10 bucks for lip balm would be a waste of money. But I guess there are always differences between high-end products and drugstore products. Korres Lip Butter felt amazing on my lips, a light touch of color, kept me hydrating all day long. Ever since, it’s been my lips saver. Love it!

    Honestly, I really want to get this gift card, I’d use it to buy my mom some skincare products at Sephora which I’ve aimed to buy since forever. Would you mind to help me afford it? ๐Ÿ˜€

    By the way, I just love your blog! Whenever I look for review on Google, I type the name of the product and then “makeupandbeautyblog” keyword. Your reviews are just so detailed and I also love that you include pictures and demo. I bought some product due to your good comments on it. You’re such a inspiring person. I’m not even kidding :D.
    Thank you for giving out tips, good & detailed reviews & also giveaways. Your hardworking is appreciated. I’m looking forward for more of your blogs.
