A Makeup and Beauty Blog Sephora giveaway!



Late mornin’. πŸ™‚

Guess who slept in today…

No, not Tab. He actually got up with El Hub around 6:30, but I stayed in bed till about 9. Now I’m sipping coffee, catching up on Top Chef and trying to figure out what I want to wear on my nails…

I know — exciting stuff, isn’t it? Yup, that’s me. Mrs. Excitement.

No idea what I’m doing today. I’ll probably mostly take it easy. Go for a run on the treadmill when my tummy settles, also a walk around the neighborhood later today. I do need to do some grocery shopping at some point, but that’s about it for me.

It’s weird coming down from the hectic holidays, isn’t it? Things are actually slow again.

    I’ve been to New York a handful of times, and I’ve always had a great time when I visited. My sister is thinking about applying for several NYC-area grad schools, and I (selfishly) hopes she goes to one of them so I have an excuse to visit :).

  11. Agata says:

    Happy weekend Karen! I have been to NY a few times. When I was a student I used to come to the US on a Work&Travel program and I worked in a hotel in a lovely little town of Lake George, NY. That’s how I fell in love with the US! I also spent a few hours in NYC but it was too short and I hope to go back for longer one day.

  55. Andrea Amy says:

    I have never been to New York (in fact, I’ve never been outside of Canada before). Anything with Ryan Gosling is a good movie to rent of course (wish we still had movie rental stores in Canada, but they have all closed down). I can’t wear perfume as I am severely allergic to all scents/fragrances. Makes it difficult, because I can’t be around others who wear it either, so mostly I stay home.

  56. Tiffanie says:

    Sometimes the slow, uneventful days are the best ones though, don’t you think?

  57. Ellie says:

    Yes, I have been to NY. Honestly, I think I expected every street corner some beautiful person singing a Broadway show tune. Instead, I was like “Huh.

  63. Autum says:

  72. I just went to NYC recently for my honeymoon at the beginning of December! We went for the first week of December for the tree lighting and the Christmas shopping, plus I’ve always wanted to be in NYC around Christmas time.

    After last week’s polar vortex, it is finally warm (well, for winter), sunny, and the snow is melting.

  87. Raluca T says:

    I’m planning some “small” shopping – ULTA F&F sale starting tomorrow πŸ™‚ The weather in the Pacific NW is very stormy (high winds, more rain than usual). My favorite perfume now is Bottega Veneta, but I’m waiting for Balenciaga Paris L’Essesnce to arrive in the mail soon πŸ™‚

  111. Kate McAtee says:

    Thank you for hosting this amazing giveaway! Sephora is definitely a magical place! I do mix foundation colors, from the drugstore, to create a custom shade. Right now I’m using Almay’s TLC Truly Lasting Color in the shade Ivory 120 with a splash of L’Oreal’s True Match Lumi in N1-2, Soft Ivory/Classic Ivory. The L’Oreal foundation is a touch too dark for me and the other is a touch too light. Thanks so much again for hosting! I, like most, am addicted to Sephora. If only my wallet could catch up to my specific taste/style, haha!

    Have a great weekend!

    Kate :o)

  112. Brittany says:

  118. GB says:

    I can wear only perfume oils — everything else gives me a headache. For winter, I’m going back and forth between Firebird’s Brown Sugar and Alchemic Muse’s Marzipan (both on Etsy).

  119. Susan S says:

    Eh, I’m pretty much planning to chat with my gf and maybe start on some beadwork. Though I should probably try cleaning up the million other beadwork projects I’ve got sitting around. Thank Elvis for vacuum cleaners and pantyhose, that’s all I’m sayin’.

    My warmest coat is easily my L.L. Bean one with Thinsulate. I got it 18 years ago the second Winter I lived in Buffalo, NY and it was a lifesaver there. Almost 20 years later and it’s still in great shape even after me wearing it to death 10 Winters in a row and machine washing it tons of times.

  138. Ana O says:

    NFL almost on, and we ran out of popcorn. That does not sound right. I guess I’ll go mix some foundation and see if that works! πŸ˜€

  139. Erica Cho says:

    I LIVE in NYC and love it! I’m going to recommend a RED lipstick. Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick. The red didn’t come off for more than 6 hours. http://ill-have-another.blogspot.com/2013/05/review-stila-stay-all-day-liquid.html

I can’t stop smelling it. Mmm. Haha. πŸ˜› I’ve worn Ed Hardy for years now but this stuff… I’m thinking I’m about to switch signature scents now.

  260. Jessica says:

    Hello Karen (and Tabs!),

    Haha this is my first time entering any sort of giveaway. But regardless of the outcome, it is nice reading all the other comments! My favourite perfume is the Madagascan Vanilla Flower by The Body Shop. I used to wear Beyond Paradise by Estee Lauder but I found that the scent faded too quickly, and vanilla suits my personality a little bit more.

    And btw, I enjoy reading all your emails ^^ I like fat cats too! and Tabs definitely has curve appeal. And my favourite ‘advert’ was the Bobbi Brown fur foundation. I don’t befriend cats in real life because my mom is always warning me about fleas and cat bites, but I’m glad you gave Tabs a home. And a name πŸ™‚

    Sigh my wi-fi isn’t working properly. If this is a double comment just delete it!

    Today, I was almost side swiped and I literally let out a gasp. I swore that we had hit but he went on his road rage way, while I was left thanking my lucky stars, I was paying attention and had the still small voice telling me to slow down and let him pass. Moments like these make me realize that life is so unexpected and anything can happen on any given second of any day. I would’ve wrote about my favorite perfume, but this experience really made me grateful for my life. πŸ™‚

  273. Anita says:

    I was looking everywhere for the Nar Holiday collection’s Day dream blush. I have went to several Sephoras and online. They all seemed to be sold out… until today! I went to the mall with my cousin to check out somethings and we stubble into Bloomingdale’s. I generally don’t go in there because it’s so expensive! Guess what? The sweet NARS lady has daydream blush and everything in the collection! Of course I brought the blush despite the fact it’s after the Holidays. πŸ™‚ It’s gonna join it’s sisters, Coeur Battant and Orgasm, in my stash. What a happy day!

    It awesome weather in Dubai. Clouds, winds and occasional rain. Its perfect time to pull out the leather jacket my dad bought for me ages back. Alas! I don’t have it now.

  345. Sarah H says:

    The weather in South Dakota is actually quite nice considering that last weekend was terribly cold. I have never been to New York City, but would love to go.

  346. Loris Ayoub says:

    My mom is sick at hospital, had a heart problem, I am miles away and haven’t seeing her in 7 years….so now I am just trying to keep my mind out of it, because I don’t want to cry in front of my kids….

  347. Katrina says:

    I’m looking forward to a long weekend next weekend and no, I don’t have any plans. I really should just stay at home, catch up on sleep and clean my house. Perhaps it’s time to take down my Christmas tree too!

  348. Bri says:

    I just got a new perfume for Christmas, philosophy living grace, its great!!! does anyonehave it?

  349. dani says:

    My favorite perfume is Miracle by Lancome, only because my exboyfriend’s AMAZING cologne, Aqua Nova for men, has been discontinued.

  350. Amoure says:

    What’s the weather like out there today?

    I live in Arizona so it’s currently 63 degrees and sunny.

  351. Carson says:

    I just discovered your blog and am crazy in LOVE!!! I can’t get off the computer! I’ve never had money to buy nice makeup and really want to try some since none of my friends will let me try theirs. Oh and a good movie to rent was Get Away with Selena Gomez, without her in the movie it would be too guyish but there was just the right amount of Selena(:

  352. Yolanda C. says:

    I’ve been to NYC twice. The first time was actually 2 weeks before 9/11 and I didn’t get to see the twin towers because I was tired from walking all day. Biggest regret so far.

  353. Joy says:

    I’ve been to NYC and to other areas of NY state. My sister is back in NYC after a few years in London UK so I’ll probably head there again this year after not being there since 2009.

  354. Tina says:

    i have been to new york yes! and i loved it.

  355. Ashley H. says:

    First time commenting on the site, but I visit mostly everyday. It really cool an nice for you to have this contest πŸ™‚
    Right now I am still enjoying my fall/winter makeup but I am looking forward to upcoming spring/summer looks. Where I live there will snow until April, so I have a while to stick with these looks.

  356. Alice says:

    My warmest jacket is not that warm because man Bay Area weather always tricks me and is never as cold as I think it is. Layers….that is the rule.

  357. MARAL says:

    Such a lazy Sunday! Going to wash my face and put on a mud mask!

  358. Kristyn says:

  361. Kira says:

    My favorite perfume right now is Dot by Marc Jacobs, plus the bottle is so cute! And my warmest jacket is actually my boyfriends, its blue and white plaid and almost as long on me as most of my dresses.

    I love visiting NY, i do it about once a month

  363. Jen says:

    I’d love to try the new Meteorites!

    I live in NY, about an hour north of the city! I worked there for awhile right out of college.
    My current favorite perfume is Laila, a Norwegian scent. Very clean and fresh!

  365. Teri B says:

    Wow. Came home from SFB area to the Eastern US last week. I left 65Β° weather & came home to 6Β° (below 0Β° with the windchill) & no electric. Went back to work where I had to train a new employee while catching up my work from vacation. Tomorrow, I have another new person to train. It takes a good 6 months to fully train someone & I have 2 at once. I could really use some Sephora bucks to make me feel special. Love your website. I really like the pic of you at the top, very nice.

    Do you ever mix foundation colors to create a custom shade? – I do, yes! Currently I’m mixing L’Oreal True Match Lumi in W3 Nude Beige with Revlon Colorstay for Oily/Combo in 200 Nude. The Lumi is a bit warm so Colorstay evens it out a bit πŸ™‚

  372. Elaine says:

    The weather is rainy and gross, but perfect for a lazy Sunday!

  373. Chelsea says:

    I’m loving Dot by Marc Jacobs. I use it almost everyday, which is rare for me to do with a perfume. I usually switch it up but I’m loving this one too much to change!

  374. Klara says:

    Well yes Karen, I visited New York just last summer, and it was the best time I ever had. I visited my boyfriend who’s doing a music tour there and surprised him! Hopefully I’ll visit it once more this summer, and ofc visit Sephora my favorite beauty supplier and addiction of mine. I can never get enough lol, especially after I get the mail with the stuff that I order. Happy 2014 dear, hope you have a wonderful year xx Klarisa

  375. Curvy CEO says:

    I have no business even entering this giveaway (I need NO MORE MAKEUP) – but it’s a $50 Sephora giftcard…can’t pass that up, right?

    Love your blog!

  376. Rachel says:

    The weather in SoCal is a little overcast but still warm.

  377. Lisa C says:

    You can still rent movies? Haha
    Thanks for the giveaway, Karen!

  378. kayla says:

    Hi Karen! Since you recently been uploading youtube videos on your channel, it’d be a cool idea to have that as an entry to your giveaway (anyone who is subscribed to your channel of course can enter their youtube or gmail name). Because I don’t think a lot of subscribers to your blog are subscribed to your channel or check it out! Just a thought πŸ˜‰

  379. Teresa Moore says:

    I have never lived or been to New York. My dream is to one day to attend the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade.

  380. Madeline Richmond says:

    My favorite perfume at the moment is Marc Jacobs Dot. I love the bottle and I have gotten almost daily compliments about how good I smell since I’ve been wearing it. It is fresh and fruity and energetic-like springtime in a bottle.

  381. Laura says:

    The Heat with Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock!

  382. ling says:

    i have xams in 2 weeks. its cram time πŸ™

  383. Monica says:

    This isn’t really fun, but it’s important! Anyone who is thinking about having children should be carrier tested! You know, Tay Sachs, Cystic Fibosis, SMA…it could save a life! Counsyl testing is very affordable, as well.

    In make up news, I’ve been obsessed with Nars lately. Cruising is my favorite lipstick and Mounia is my favorite blush!

  384. Tiffany says:

    The revlon lip butters are on sale and so I ended up buying 10! So much for a no buy.

  385. I’ve been to New York city once, but I’d love to go back someday!

  386. Dianne says:

    Sill suck on my lady gaga perfume! Lol

  387. Melinda L. says:

  389. Solangel says:

    My current perfume fave is Lady Gaga’s Fame πŸ™‚

  390. Andie says:

    I recently started using the Nars Creamy Concealer and it has been AMAZING. I’ve tried other concealers before which have been horrible with cakeyness, so the way it glides on and doesn’t look like I’ve got a mini mask on has been great.

  391. Mallory B says:

    My bridesmaids took me to NYC for a weekend for my bachelorette party! We went to an 80s prom party (omg, so fun) and went to see a guy we graduated high school with play with his jazz band in the zebra room. Along with a lot of shopping, of course. Actually, that was the first time I ever went into a Sephora (thus starting a lifelong obsession)!

  392. Gina says:

    I lived in New York City for 4 years for college, it was a LOT of fun, and the people are actually super super nice despite the stereotype. I think that was my greatest surprise; one of my greatest memories was when my mom visited to help me move out for summer, and it happened to be Mother’s Day weekend and random people wished her Happy Mother’s Day, a flower vendor even gave her a bouquet!!! I miss it!

  393. Petunia says:

    I love going to NYC! Taking the train into the city, going to the museums, the theater, wandering around the streets, SHOPPING, love it all!

  394. Amanda says:

    I love to watch It’s Complicated!

  396. HapaMama says:

    Lately, I’ve been loving Tea Rose perfume… reminds me of the 80s!

  397. Emily says:

    A good movie to rent? If you’re up for a chick-flick (and come on, who isn’t?!) I’d say, Crazy Stupid Love! Plus, you get to see Mr. Ryan Gosling without a shirt on! πŸ˜‰

  398. McKenna Reasor says:

    Hey so when I was entering my twitter name in the rafflecopter I hit send before I realized my phone had autocorrected it to something else. And I actually am following @karenmbb with my account @kennabrea. Hope you read this!

    It was pretty warm today, but I hear it’s getting colder tomorrow. Sadness. I’ve been to New York twice–once with my family and once with my high school’s music department, which was such a fun trip.

  410. Nicole Stanford says:

    What is your absolute most favorite eye shadow palette that you would be lost without?

  411. Jennifer says:

    I always mix foundation shades to get my perfect shade because I can’t find a foundation that matches me perfectly. I mix Annabelle BB Cream in Light/Medium with Revlon Nearly Naked in Medium Beige.

  412. Vanessa F says:

    It was pretty windy today but still in the 60s-70s. I am loving SoCal winters right now!

  413. Cezka says:

    My warmest as well as favorite jacket/sweater would be this long Old Navy pea-coat that’s actually in a dark blue navy color, & it just always makes me look sleek & kinda Sherlock Holmes-y (the BBC one with Benedict Cumberbabe :D). & I’d really love to go to New York someday!!! πŸ™‚

  414. Shyla says:

    Braved the cold today to get a sample of the MAC Mineralize liquid foundation as recommended in your blog. We have the same skintone, undertone, overtone lol and I love how you work out the neutral, nude lippy in your look. I have stopped looking for the perfect nude, neutral lippy because I always look like I am sick or something. Anyway, the make-up goddess in me has awoken again *whimper*. Thanks for your posts. I love the “Unsung Heroes” post, very helpful. =)

  419. Ashleigh says:

    Uh oh, I can tell I have hefty competition for this sephora gift card. πŸ˜‰
    What’s a good movie to rent? I like movies both the man and myself will enjoy, that make you think and give good discussion during and after the film. Like memento, inception, pulp fiction come to mind.
    Current favorite perfume? Tocca- Stella. I want more but currently wearing Stella 24/7 because I splurged on it recently and it smells divine.

    I went to New York for the first time a few years ago. It was a lot of fun, but I think I’d rather go back to California after grad school. It’s just in my blood. πŸ™‚

    Dunno if I have one favorite, but I really like Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab! They have soooo many different scents, and I like the really unusual ones. Also, they’re oils and not sprays, so they don’t bug my asthma and it’s easier to control how much you put on.

  423. Cica says:

    My current favorite perfume is Gucci Rush

    I’m highly recommending watching old Magnum P.I. eps on Netflix. They are so silly and fun and they’re set in beautiful Hawaii so what’s not to love? πŸ™‚ The boys picked Percy Jackson 2 to rent on Demand this weekend and I can’t even explain how awful it was. Nathan Fillion plays Hermes and it was STILL barely a 1 star. Did you catch True Detective on HBO last night? I liked it.

  449. Lydia says:

    its not’ a movie, but the last thing I watch on Netflix was a mini series called “Top of the Lake.” The actress in it won a Golden Globe last night. It’s absolutely wonderful. I watched the whole thing in 2 days because it sucked me in.

  450. Fran says:

    I’ve had my MAC Masterclass brushes for over a week now, and I think they are *awesome*! Honestly, they can do things other brushes don’t even *think* about doing. The skinny one fills in my eyebrows in about 2 seconds flat — even if I just swiped on some brow gel on my way out the door in the morning, I can go back hours later and fill them in in seconds with this little tool. Ever look at your makeup a few hours after application and wonder how it’s ever going to make it through the evening? Near-empty patches in some spots and pools collecting in fine lines? Somehow one cheek ended up with too much blush? Just pull out the small oval for under the eyes and tiny creases, the larger oval for cheeks, chin, forehead, and with a few gentle swipes — presto! Magic! Evenness has returned! And they wipe clean lickety-split. Honestly, the only thing that would improve them is if they came with little carrying cases for tossing them into your bag.

    I have about 4 or 5 different cc/bb/foundations going at the same time. I mix the colors between seasons and sometimes I need one with more moisture or a different finish.

    My daily perfume is Coach. I wandered into sephora to look at the nail polishes with my boyfriend reluctantly following. We stood in front of the wall of perfumes and I grumbled something about too many choices and how picky I am that I’ll never find the perfect scent. He grabbed this one and for me it was love at first sniff. I love the bright floral scent.

    As usual, hot, sunny & humid tropical weather πŸ™‚

    Current favorite perfume?
    Annick Goutal Le Chèvrefeuille

  482. Jennifer M-K says:

    Pure Poison by Dior has been my go-to perfume since college but I have been experimenting lately to see what else is out there. As for NY…I’ve lived here my whole life an hour North of the city. It’s close enough to visit but far enough from the traffic jams. I’d rather take public transportation to, from, and around the city than try to drive and find parking in Manhattan. I went to college in Queens so it was easier to go into the city whenever I wanted than it is to commute from where I am now but its still doable as long as I give myself enough time. It’s only an hour on paper..maybe less…but that’s with no traffic and driving myself. I give myself at least 2 hours if I’m going anywhere near rush hour and maybe more if I’m taking the bus in but its doable if I plan ahead πŸ™‚
