  20. Julie says:

    I can’t normally wear nail polish (because of work), but I’m going on holiday this weekend, so I am going to paint them today!

  21. Vanessa C says:

    Day 7 of a heat wave. Only 91 degrees today! Lol

  22. Pam says:

  25. Debbie says:

  26. BeckBeck says:

    Happy Caturday, Tabs!

  27. Ralitza says:

    Wanna know the truth? I’m terrified of cats…

  28. Deborah says:

    Wearing OPI’s I’m Wired! πŸ˜€

  29. Ellen says:

    Our kitties are awesome because they’re sometimes so independent and can be left alone, but other times they’re super snuggle monsters, spending hours on their backs asking for belly rubs. Lately they haven’t left me alone – they know something is going on (i.e. a new arrival, due in three weeks!)

  30. Sarah says:

    Cats are awesome because they just don’t give a ****!

  31. Ana Carolina Ribeiro Olson says:

    Cats are awesome because…. omg there are so many reasons! Right now, cats are awesome it’s super cold here (South of Southern Hemisphere…. full winter!), and both my cats decided the best place to sleep is between my legs! Who needs leg warmers?

  32. Olivia K says:

    Cats are awesome, our cat’s name is Medusa, it’s pretty fitting.

  33. Kit Novak says:

    My cat liner look always starts off with a very hopeful me and my beloved slick silver tube of BLINC liquid eyeliner. I get into place, smoosh my fave against my mirror and steady my arm on whatever is closest to me on my dresser. It takes me approximately 20 minutes to finish a line on one eye. So after 40 or so minutes of medical surgery-like concentration and stamina, my look is complete. And it always looks the same. Sloppy. I then sashay to the bathroom to wash my face. I will master it one day!

  34. Ivy says:

    I love kitties so much! I generally love all fluffy, gorgeous cats. Persian cats are way too cute with their smooshed faces, and I go “SQUEE!” whenever I see one.

  35. yalingie says:

    ahhh i cannot wait to get my bite lipstick collection *____________*

  36. Alix says:

    Waiting for the heat wave to break!

  37. Jennifer Pham says:

    I don’t own a cat, but I do think they’re cute!

  38. Hillary says:

    MY parents used to own a nearly hairless cat – surprisingly cute, but no where as cute as Tabs.

  39. aclearcutsign says:

    Cats are great because they are not (that) needy compared to dogs.

  40. Bj says:

    Love this blog and have missed it

  41. Kesley says:

    Tabs is obviously the most photogenic feline out there, but my Charlie is a pretty close second! He loooooves to pose for photos any chance he gets. He’s a 1 year old long and skinny (Not for lack of food!) black and white American Shorthair who loves to play fetch and goes crazy at the sight of a hair tie (his favorite toy). He opens doors and has conversations with us humans, and is definitely the baby of the house!

  42. Elizabeth says:

    My favorite feline YouTube video is Keyboard Cat!

  43. Kate says:

    I’m about to paint them so there’s nothing on my paws right now but soon there will be a pretty redish-pink from Nicole by OPI.

  44. Megan Roeder says:

    Wearing Essie Sunday Funday with one gold sparkly finger/toe! Thanks for doing this giveaway! Hope I win!! πŸ™‚

  45. Daniella says:

    I live with a roommate that hates cats. I am now finally able to move out.
    So help me, the first thing I am going to do when I move, is to get a kitty.
    I have been kitty deprived for quite a while, so I cant wait!

  46. Andie says:

    My favorite way to get the cat eye look is using MAC fluidline in blacktrack and the MAC 208 brush. Works like a charm every time!!

  47. Ashley says:

    Campfire tonight with s’mores… adding in some caramel and peanut butter to make em special!

  48. Elsa says:

    been looking at those new UD lipsticks

  49. Cynthia F. says:

    Tabs is definitely the most photogenic supermodel out there!

  50. Thanks for the awesome giveaway, Tabs! There is no kitty supermodel more photogenic than you!

  51. Lívia says:

    This is super! Thanks for the fun to enter the game. Enjoy your holiday.

  52. Paula says:

    I’d love to win! Wish I was on vacation in ca right now!

  53. Casey Hilgenbrink says:

    I really wish I could have a kitty, but I’m allergic! πŸ™

  54. Crystal says:

    Nyan Cat is my favorite for sure. My own kitty decided to lay on my son’s space puzzle and I totally took a picture just to paint a pop tart and rainbow on her!

  55. Hira says:

    Why me no win!!! Seriously i drool everytime i see the word “sephora”

  56. Jen says:

    I’d love to win!

  61. Lisa K says:

    Going to a 40th birthday party tonight . Can’t wait!

  62. Belinda says:

    My fav eyeliner for cat eyes is Revlon Colorstay liquid liner. I justr started using liquid eyeliner more, and I am so happy I did; I love it! I was pleasantly surprised to see that this stayed on my oily eyelids.

    I’m wearing liquid eyeliner right meow πŸ˜‰

  63. I stayed up all night watching Orange Is the New Black on Netflix. So good. And I am so tired. Still have over half of season one left to go.

  64. GB says:

    I’m allergic to cats πŸ™

  65. camille says:

    yay, weekend giveaway time! πŸ™‚

    tabs, my favourite kitty is garfield. he’s just the best cat. i mean, you’re a tabby cousin, but he is my first kitty love.

  66. B says:

  67. Colleen Boudreau says:

    I’m obsessed with cats! I swear I’m probably going to end up a crazy cat lady one day.

  68. SHay says:

    The cat is adorable. I want one ! πŸ™

  69. Lorraine says:

    Tabs is a seriously gorgeous model. My cat is far less cooperative when I am taking photos of him!

  70. kimkats says:

    pssssttt…. hey tabs! I have some nice organic catnip growing here at my place…. Trade you some for, oh, say… a sephora gift card? πŸ˜› ok, ok, you know I’m kidding! Hope you are surviving ok without your personal assistant!

  71. Sarah W says:

    I think our rescue tuxedo kitty could give Tabs a run for his money, but she’s a lady kitty model so a different category! (and also I might be biased)

  72. Larie says:

    Still working on finding a new liquid liner that I love! Think I may try MAC’s next.

  113. Mary Thi says:

    Cats are awesome! I was never a cat person until a couple years ago when this cat showed up at our door. It was Winter so we took it in and gave it food. It ended up staying with us. They’re so sweet and cuddly. They’re also independent and like to do their own thing.

  114. Ashley says:

    I’m more of a dog person actually. I like looking at cats, I like to see pictures of them, but actually interacting with them scares the bejeezus out of me. I had a bad experience with one when I was a small child. I don’t have enough money to seek counseling for this horrific tragedy I endured, but I’m sure some Sephora would help! ;P

  115. Adrianne B says:

    Cats are awesome because they are independent! And the have the softest fur.

    Pusheen is my favourite kitty cartoon, so cute!

  204. Kay says:

    I don’t think there will ever be a cat as photogenic as Tabs.

  205. Mardi says:

    I can’t wait for my one month holiday in NYC later this year. I live in Australia and we don’t have Sephora (sniff!) so guess where I’ll be going?

  206. Clemence says:

    cats is awesome because they could have killer eyes or innocent eyes. it’s adorable. they have soft fur and fluffy (on some bread) they are so spoiled to, make me want to hug them πŸ˜€

  210. MelodyJ says:

    I’m getting over a summer cold. I was offline for most of the week. I didn’t miss the internet as much as I thought I would.

  211. Bobi says:

    Thanks, Karen, you are great!

  216. Yogirl says:

    I’m about to have a pedicure today, but haven’t decided about a polish yet. Maybe Dior Diablotine or Lucky or Chanel Taboo.

  217. Nikita says:

    I wish I could have a cat. I didn’t have one growing up due to pet allergies in the family, but I was able to spend time around a lot of friends who had cats. I wonder how I’d do it now.

  218. Jenna M Osborne says:

    Cats are awesome because they do not take crap from anybody. A dog twice her size? She will wrestle him to the ground with one claw and never break a sweat!

  219. Denise F says:

    We have a female stray cat named Daisy. We found her when she was the size of our hands and took her in because we think their mother had abandoned the litter. We don’t really know how old she is, but we estimate her to almost 5 now. I love her to bits and she is my baby girl. πŸ™‚

    i love cats, cats are awesome

  224. Tysha Hill says:

    The first time my best friend and I met, (17 yrs ago!) we bonded because she saw my beautiful orange kitty and said she had a cat that looked exactly the same. Then she asked his name, and as I replied Meow Meow her face lit up and she yelled, “me too”!!! Cats can lead you to some great people and they know a good person right away!

  225. Melisa says:

    Love your blog!

  226. Natalie says:

  235. Heidi says:

    Sometimes I paint my little boy kitty cat’s claws – just because he’s so pretty. I’m not sure he appreciates it though.

  236. Petunia says:

    I am having sunscreen issues this summer. Everything rolls and pills. Or turns me a funny color-from white to orange. πŸ™

  237. seyran says:

  239. Rebecca Cash says:

    I would like to see Tabs do an interview with Grumpy cat!! πŸ™‚

    I am officially in love with your blog. Recently discovered you and I am following you via bloglovin! Very helpful posts, in fact, I am headed to MAC (my favorite brand) today to pick up a few things because of you!

  243. Jennifer Ryder says:

    My Siamese always looks beautiful in photos. One of my favorites is of him under a blue Adirondack chair – the color of his eyes is the same as the chair.

  244. Vidya says:

    My favourite cat video is “Cat man do”:

  245. Tina says:

    What’s new pussycat? Woah, Woah

  246. Step says:

    Tabs is the most photogenic obvs but I like that Bub cat too.

  247. MK says:

    My paws and claws are bare today! I’m getting a mani/pedi tomorrow evening, and thought I’d remove the polish early to give my nails some time to breathe. Going to pick bright, summer-perfect shades, of course!

  248. Misa says:

    Just in case any of the cat lovers here haven’t seen it, PetsAliveWest.org has a live kitty cam on their site. LOTS of fun. Enjoy!

  249. Miija says:

    I would buy the Smashbox primer light or one of the OCC lip tars.

  250. tina says:

    id love to win this!

  251. Emily says:

    I would buy either one of the Naked pallettes, an OCC lip tar…. if I won I might even be so excited I forget to feed my Kitty! :O

  252. Dee (and) Maitai says:

    Sometimes I forget why cats are so awesome when they’re running around knocking everything over and attacking my feet for no reason at all. Then, when I really need it, I give one a squish and I’m reminded of the furry little companions that I have to share my life with and everything is all better again.

  253. Polina says:

    I have two cats! I love them!

  254. Marian says:

    Cats are awesome because they do what they want. If a cat comes to you and shows affection, it’s because HE wants to…not, YOU want him to.

  255. Ann says:

    My kids are allergic to cats, but we have a dog.

  256. Megan says:

    My boyfriend’s cat brightens my day every time I see him!

  257. Liz says:

    Right now I’ve got Essie tart deco on my nails, it’s a really pretty coral color.

  258. Cassandra Laizure says:

    My Name Cassandra is Greek and it means: She Who Entangles Men

    It’s also a Shakespeare Character in “Troilus and Cressida.” Cassandra was a Trojan princess, the daughter of Priam and Hecuba. She was given the gift of prophecy by Apollo, but when she spurned his advances he cursed her so nobody would believe her prophecies.

    Thank you so much for this opportunity Karen!! Good Luck to everyone!

  259. Marina says:

    I’ve been trying to branch out and do some “colorful” makeup recently, and yesterday at Rite Aid I picked up a NYC Eyeshadow Trio in Crystal Springs. It has a champagne, a strawberry milkshake pink, and a white. All three shades are shimmery, so I put the champagne on the first half of the lid, then the strawberry color on the outer lid, then blended the crease with Sunset from Stila and Naked from Urban Decay. Surprisingly, the NYC shades were rather pigmented, and they created a really light, pretty, feminine look. I personally think it was wearable, so I will be wearing it with a dress in the future!

  260. Tricia Martin says:

    Kitty lovers will get this. ^_^ http://theoatmeal.com/comics/kitty_pet

  261. elle says:

    Oh man, I don’t even know how many cat breeds I know… Very, very many.

  263. Giulia says:

    I would like to thank you for your blog, I read it every day and I love it!

  264. Meg says:

    Cats are so awesome because they can jump from just about anywhere and manage to land on their feet…they’re magical! lol

  265. Liz says:

    Although I can name a LOT of breeds, my cats are all mutts – the best breed of all! Figaro, Kai, Grace, and Wilma all approve this message.

  266. Great blog really!! I’m addicted to reading your posts!

  267. Wayne says:

    I love cats! They have such great personalities. They can be loving one day, and a total diva the next. We always say that when we snuggle with our cat his face says “I hate that I love you.” because he looks annoyed, but he is purring like crazy haha!

  281. Picco says:

    Cats are awesome because they’re always so chill.

  282. Justene says:

  292. Mary says:

    I love cats! Hello Kitty is my favorite cartoon cat character.

  293. Janelle says:

    I’m more of a cat person because they are not loud like dogs (with all the barking and barking and barking…..) I have two cats, 1 girl and 1 boy. I love my boy cat almost like he’s a little brother. Is that weird? He’s 13 years old and love to snuggle and sleeps on his back and loves sleeping next to someone at night. His name is Hamilton and I love him so much. In fact I’m going to go and play with him after I finishing posting this. (^x^)

  294. Rachel says:

    I’ve always been a cat person & never had a dog.

  295. stacy says:

    Only cats I ever had were strays. Still cute though.

  296. Sylvia says:

    Cats just are wonderful, even when they are doing gross things to your house, but nothing is better than a cuddly purring cat.

  297. Karen K says:

    I love Hello Kitty. She’s the only cat that doesn’t make me sneeze and wheeze.

  298. Sherry says:

    My Smokey is very photogenic. He strikes several poses during the day. He is a silver tabby striped Persian, with very stubby limbs. He is very tiny…he only weighs about 8 1/2 pounds. He purrs like a motor boat and likes to do these cute little silent meows. We love him!! We got him when my daughter was seven. My daughter is now 20 years old and the cat is still her buddy. It’s so precious!!

  299. Caroline says:

    i love glitterrr πŸ™‚

  300. sweeks1980 says:

    I love cats because they are so independent (even though mine is probably too independent).

  301. Melinda L. says:

    I love cats because they purr, they as very independent, they like to sleep and they are so furry

  302. Christina says:

    I once knew a cat more photogenic than Tabs, my kitty Diamond. He was a gorgeous black cat and had Siamese descent. I really miss him as he passed away about 2 years ago.
    For my cat liner, I like to take my time and use a felt tip since I’m still a novice. But I love the Coastal Scents liquid liner because it’s easy to apply, opaque and lasts all day! I line and then clean up with some concealer on a foundation brush for the perfect wing.

  303. Nikki A says:

    I like Luca from the Toonami cartoon IGPX, because she gets to talk and she can be quite sassy!

  304. Maple says:

    I don’t have a cat, but I do have an awesomely cute dog! πŸ™‚

  312. Katrina says:

    Cats are awesome because they don’t coddle you when you’re sad. They’re like “Girl, please. You KNOW you are too fabulous to be sitting around moping.” And then next thing you know, you feel better.
