A Makeup and Beauty Blog Giveaway!

Morning time!


Good morning, glory. ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you got good sleeps.

I slept pretty well. Got a tabby up in here, and he’s been extracting extra lurvies from me since I got up. I think he’s a little disheveled from the siding repair over the past few days. His fur isn’t looking as silky as usual, and he’s a little twitchy. The contractors aren’t working this weekend, so it’s blessedly quiet around here, but the racket last week got on his last nerve.

Poor guy…

Yeah, you and me both, tabby, LOL! I’m pretty frazzled, too.

In other news, it’s friggin’ freezing, Mr. Bigglesworth! I didn’t even want to get out of bed, but I left my walkie-talkie downstairs…

Walkie-talkie. El Hub and I use walkie-talkie radios to communicate with each other when one of us is upstairs and the other’s downstairs. Seriously, I’ll radio him things like, “Babe, could you please bring me a cup of coffee. Over.” And he’ll be all, “OK, roger that. I’ll bring it up.”

Haha! For reals…

I don’t know what we’re doing today. Hopefully nothing, but I do have to pick up some things for the Super Bowl tomorrow. We’re barbecuing at my parents’ house, and since I’ll be the only veggie-tarian, I better plan ahead and make sure I have something to eat.

Oh, Tabs picked up some last-minute Super Bowl week kitty modeling work, so that’s pretty cool. Look for his ads here on the blog tomorrow before the game. ๐Ÿ™‚

Alright, I’ve been rambling. Enough of that. It’s giveaway time.

    I’d like to see Peyton win. I’m not even a Peyton fan (or Manning-in-general fan) but it’s towards the end of his career and he deserves it. Just wish it was Brady instead ๐Ÿ™

    • Ashley H. says:


      Well if I were to win the Sephora card I’d grab some skincare products. I have been struggling with acne and hate the dark marks left. If anyone has any suggestions for products that are gentle, natural and fade spots let me know. Has anyone tried Ole Henriksen or Boscia?

    Yesterday I had a mishap with my eyelash curler and ripped out a bunch of lashes on my right eye. OWWWW!!

  52. Amber says:

    I would love a few Bite Beauty Matte Pencils for my birthday thats coming up! Also, we’re having a snow storm but I totally just had a bowl of s’mores ice cream! Ice cream has no weather.

  53. Cassie says:

  55. Melissa says:

    I’d like to get new eyeliners in bright colors!

  61. Megan says:

    I would use this gift card to buy this great mascara I got at Sephora a couple years back, called Blinc, I think. And then maybe lip glosses like Stila’s.

  62. ald says:

    I can touch type, but I’ve seen others touch type on a cell, and that I cannot do!

  63. Susan T. says:

    If I won this I would buy my favorite Smashbox blush rush (in flush) because I’ve just hit the pan! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  64. cassandra Eastman says:

    Essie seems to be the longest lasting nail polish to me, unless you get the gel manicure with blacklight.

  65. Celena Clause says:

    I can touch type! I took classes specifically to work on my typing skills. I used to be so slow though, and would stare at the keyboard intently!

  66. Erika C. says:

    I really into pink and nude lipstick, can’t get enough of them!

  67. Erika V. says:

    The Niners lost the playoff game to the Seahawks so by default I want the Broncos to win.

  68. Marisa Kramer says:

    No polish lasts very long on these nails… ๐Ÿ™‚ But I kept a Zoya Pixie Dust polish on for a few days last week, that was pretty long for me! If I win the gift card I’m getting as many Sephora Formula X polishes as possible, I need them so badly.

  69. Bianca Rogoveanu says:

    I would buy myself a new concealer, i have my eyes on Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer for a while !

  70. Hi says:

    If i won, id buy some much needed foundation. I’m running out at rapid pace and my little spatula can only dig out so much! It snowed her earlier this week and today it’s 74! My skin needs some tlc

  71. Mandy says:

    I would use it to get one of UD Naked Palette’s.

  72. Maegan Morin says:

    My fave nail polish lately has been OPI Alcatraz Rocks and its textured nail polish. You put two coats on with no top coat and it will last a week! I LOVE the color and I love how long it lasts!

  73. Erin Davis says:

    I love Killer Colours and Lisa Eldridge’s YouTube videos!

  74. Jennifer says:

    I am really loving Lily Pebbles on YouTube right now. Her coloring and mine are similar, so when she tries makeup on I can see how it would look with my skin tone and hair color.

  75. Maureen says:

    I pick Denver.

  76. INCI says:

    If I win gift card, the NARSissist will be mine. ^^

  77. Sienna says:

    OPI always last longest on me!

  78. Katie says:

    I can type without looking and I’m trying to teach my 65 year old mom how to type using more than one finger at a time! I was successful in teaching her how to text, before my help she didn’t know how to space out sentences so I would receive something along the lines of “loveyouhaveagoodday”.

  79. christina p says:

    I would love to get some new makeup!

  80. Angel W says:

    Good afternoon! If I won I’d buy the UD 3 palette. I can touch type except for some reason during all those typing classes, on a typewriter in my day, I didn’t learn to touch type numbers. ;P Go Seahawks! ๐Ÿ™‚

  81. Bhevarri says:

    I can touch type usually, but only in English ๐Ÿ˜› For some reason German is harder!!

  82. Elizabeth Robinson says:

    If I won I would pick up the new 2014 colored clay collection from tarte.

  83. Deanna says:

    I am so envious of all your Hourglass makeup! If I win the $50 gift card, I will either get the Hourglass eye shadow duo in Prism that you’ve said great things about, or the Naked 3 palette. Or, you know what? I would probably end up buying both, because I would probably convince myself that it was okay since I used the gift card for part of the bill LOL.

  84. Aida says:

    I can’t believe January is already over… I’m not into sports and I’m so happy that Andrew isn’t either :)). I never have to deal with football (or any other sport) season he he he.

  85. JoAnne says:

    Go Denver! ๐Ÿ™‚

    My current favourite youtube channel is jacksfilms because he’s hilarious! I can’t get enough of your grammar sucks!

  89. Catherine Shaw says:

    I learned to type on a manual — that’s how antique I am! So, sure, I’m a touch typist, 100+ wpm!

  90. koushi says:

    If I won, I would get Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation in 143!

  91. Bunny says:

    I would use the gift to buy a new brow powder!

  92. tiffany! says:

    Of course I can touch type! My generation thinks it’s akin to handwriting (only neater and faster)!!!

    Honestly don’t care who wins the football game…unfortunately the game bores me to tears!

  93. Kim Pincombe Cole says:

    Currently crushing on Zoya Nail Polishes – they just seem to last longer on me than any others I’ve tried (other than gel of course).
    Rooting for the Broncos to win the Super Bowl, simply because of Peyton Manning. Indy still loves him!

  94. Liz says:

    I would buy foundation if I won

  95. Abby says:

    Yes, I can touch type! I’m not much of a football person, but I am rooting for the Seahawks, considering I live in Seattle!lol If I won, I would love to get the new Hourglass ambient blushes. Soo pretty!!

  96. Ritsa says:

    I can’t touch type….but I hope I win this giveaway to feel better!!!

  97. donna marie says:

    Got my monthly box of Julep nail polishes. I need to figure out which one to use first. They are all so pretty. If only glitter nail polish didn’t take so long to take off… I would do a new color every night.

  98. Lisa Brown says:

    i cannot type worth beans; i hate typing

  99. step says:

    No matter which teams are playing, I think puppies will always win the super bowl.

  100. Amy says:

    I CAN touch type!! Best thing I learned in high school!

  101. Justine says:

    I recommend Pentatonix’s YouTube channel: PTXofficial. Only five voices singing a cappella but they have a big full sound.

  102. natalie says:


  103. Jennifer says:

    I’ve been touch typing since at least the 3rd grade! It’s kind of mind boggling how much time I spend on the internet.

  104. Alicia Mae says:

    I would get a new moisturizer for sure with that gift card. This Pacific NW weather is drying my skin out horribly!

  105. Marie says:

    I can touch type.

  106. gina says:

    i don’t know who to root for! probably seahawks since i was in seattle during the nfc championship game!

  107. sharee says:

    I can’t touch type but I am pretty quick. My boyfriend can because he is a computer engineer, jealous lol.

  108. Ambritt G says:

  113. Christy Peeples DuBois says:

    I love your blog more and more each and every day. You have certainly found your calling. Not only are you informative but also an entertainer.

  114. Hollie H says:

    What would you get if you won this $50 gift card? – Hourglass Blushes!!!! I am dying to get my hands on some…ok, all. ๐Ÿ™‚

  115. crystaldawn says:

    If i won i think id get a new finishing powder or lip volor..

  116. Amoure Jones says:

    If I won the $50 (after seeing your swatches) I’d definitely get one of the blushes. The color pay off is amazing.

  117. Natalie B. says:

    A few of my jobs over my lifetime have been as a typist. One was for a lawyer, another was for the “Trader” magazines you see at convenience stores, and the longest was as a graphic designer for a well known coupon company that shows up in the mailbox once a month. Consequently, I can type almost 100 words per minute. It’s one of my “secret” skills. lol

  118. Cindy says:

    Yes, I can touch type, because of my high school typing class, haha!

  119. Katherine says:

    In terms of long lasting nail polishes, I have the best luck with the OPI gel ones. In particular, I find that the glittery/sparkly colors stay on longer than the matte/solid colors!

  120. Piroska says:

    If I won, I’d buy some books and toys for my grand-daughter.

  121. Kristyn says:

    My favorite youtuber right now is Kandee Johnson. I absolutely love her positive attitude!

  146. Dawn Peacher says:

    I’m a huge Ravens fan and since we aren’t in it this year, I’m picking Denver because Payton and his family waited around for an hour to speak to Ray Lewis when he retired, it showed me that he is a class act, he didn’t have to do that. So go Denver !

  147. Lynn says:

    GO Broncos! Love Peyton and how well the whole team plays, plus it’s the year of the horse so good luck to them

  148. Lyndsey B. says:

    Seattle for the win!

  193. Natasha P. says:

    I learned how to touch type on the computer in a high school class and I’m glad they taught us that, otherwise I would’ve had to learn it on my own (and I’m not sure I would’ve had the tolerance for that!).

  194. Thanks for the giveaway! If I won, I think I’d spend it on perfume.

  200. Camille says:

  201. Anna says:

    I barely know the Superbowl is sometime soon, let alone who is playing… ๐Ÿ™‚ I believe a nude eyeshadow palette might be in order from Sephora… I am perfectly happy with my blushes but those new Hourglass ones sure are being sirens… I might be won over by some Nars velvet matte or satin lip pencils, as well.

  202. Glorya says:

    It is great to see a beautiful brown skin women blogging about beauty products. Honestly, after a while it drives me crazy to see an absence of women of color. I will also say that I love your skin color. I am so light skin that come winter, I start looking ghostly. Now what is on my mind is what I would do with $50 BUCKs to spend at Sephora….this is a great shopping trip. I would try Hourglass lipstick as i read it was heavenly. There are other good ideas posted above. I would love Armani foundation and/or Urban Decay’s latest make up palette. It would be great to win this opportunity as I don’t usually win any thing. This would put an extra step in my walk. Luv ya, La Glorya de Nueva Yori

  203. Amber says:

    If i won the $50 gift card i would treat myself to goodies from Sephora by purchasing products that arent available to buy in my country. X

    First off, I’m obsessed with Sephora. I actually found this website from the Advice forum in Sephora. I type 107wpm but I type even faster on a stenograph machine as I’m in school to be an official court reporter (Got to type 225wpm to pass the national test!) In the meantime, I still want to look great even if I’ll have to look conservative in the court room ๐Ÿ™‚

  216. Brooke says:

    If I won, I would get some of those necessary things (more concealer, foundation, brushes, etc) that I never have money for bc I spend it all on eye shadow lol

  217. Diana says:

    My favorite nail polish is Teeny Bikini by Essie. I wore it for a holiday at a beach to match my swimsuit.

  224. Mallory B says:

    I’d get another Hourglass ambient light blush. I have it in mood exposure and I think I’d pick it up in diffused poppy or dim infusion. I also want to pick up the Bite Beauty agave lip mask because my lips have been so dry/painful/cracked this winter. All this wind and negative temperatures are taking a toll on my skin!

  225. Stephanie G says:

    I’d get some MUFE and Illamasqua lipsticks!

  226. Julianne says:

    Hi Karen! I live in Australia and it is pretty hot out here! My current favourite channel is probably shamelessfripperies. I really love Karima and her beauty videos.

    When I was in elementary school, we had to go to “computer class” to learn how to type. They even put a paper over your hands so that you had to practice not looking down. To this day, I rarely have to look down and can type super fast. They started me early!

  234. Taylor says:

    As for Youtube channels, I’ve been watching Sharon Farrell for her makeup tutorials and Tati (Glam life guru) for hauls and reviews.

  238. Jordi says:

    I can touch type pretty accurately and correctly except when it comes to numbers. I always have to look at the keyboard then!

  239. Joanna says:

    I would get me a nude stylo from hourglass and a bobbi brown gel liner. My fave!

But the main reason that I want to keep up with you is that you have a similar skin tone to my own.

Definitely will be using your posts to help me figure out what will work best for me. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

  280. Melissa says:

    Thanks for the generous giveaway! I can touch type quite easily, thank you – parents forced the class on me in high school LOL. I would use this to get a foundation as I have never, ever been able to get a good match for my skin – though that’s partly because my skin was in such poor shape. Now, finally at 43, my skin is more balanced, and I am desperate to get something for my extremely-pale-skin-made-difficult-by-massive-underlying-ruddiness problem. I love that the Sephora peeps will keep trying until they find a match, and I can’t wait to be able to buy something that won’t be wasted. Based on research I’m hoping either MUFE HD or Illamasqua will have the match for me!

    I love “Asian Beauty Secrets” youtube channel. GREAT skincare advice!

  330. Amanda says:

    Go Hawks! I love my Russell Wilson! I found this site on Pinterest looking for drugstore dupes and I can’t wait to try the products you suggest. While recently at sephora I fell in love with buxom lip cream in mudslide and too face chocolate bronzer.

  331. Karen Ang says:

    Yes I can touch-type!

  332. Rie says:

    Nail polishes just never seem to last more than a couple days on me!

  350. Monica says:

    porefessional primer!

  351. Laura Corrall says:

    I don’t think I’m that great at touch typing. My husband always says I’m very good at hammering the keys. I type like I have an aggrievance with the keyboard ๐Ÿ˜› I would absolutely love to try the hourglass blushes.

  352. Caitlin Wallis says:

    I’ve always found that China Glaze polishes last longer on my nails; shame they’re so hard to get a hold of here in the UK!

  353. Jessie says:

    Woohoo! I love the weekend giveaway! If I won $50 I would love to have the Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation!

  354. Ebru M says:

    Indy girl here, so I’m rooting for Peyton. Go Denver!

    What’s the longest lasting nail polish? The longest lasting polish, I’ve tried is the The CoverGirl Outlast nail polish. Takes a while to dry… but it sure does last a very, very long time.

    I absolutely hate football, so I honestly don’t care who wins the Super Bowl. I’m watching the Puppy Bowl!

  362. Trudi Flint says:

    I love French Manicures

  363. Fran says:

    I can only touch type if I use the Dvorak keyboard layout instead of QWERTY. How strange is that?

    When I visit Sephora this week, I want to get samples of the Hourglass No.28 primer and the CoverFx anti-aging primer to compare the two… my skin is so dry in the winter, I usually love the Hourglass Veil mineral primer, but right now it’s a little too mattifying for me… I also want to look at the Narcissist palette in person, see if some of the shades are stiffer in the palette than in the singles and quads like some people say, see if there are just too many dark browns to make it really useful for me — if no on those two things, I think it would be a wonderful way to try more Nars eyeshadows, I only have one.

  364. Lena says:

    I’d love to get one or two of the new Clinique blushes!

  365. tina says:

    Those new hourglass blushes look amazing!!

    Hi Karen! Yes, I can type without looking at the keyboard, thanks to 1 semester of typing in high school ๐Ÿ™‚ I only took it because there was a cute boy in that class that I was crushing on at the time! LOL. Anyways..here I am 20 years later still typing away!! If I were to win 50 Sephora bucks, I would love to try out the highlight powders from Hourglass. I recently purchased the immaculate foundation and it does wonders for my oily skin. Thanks again for all the work you do! I enjoy your blogs and your you-tube videos!!

    My current favourite YouTube channel is http://www.youtube.com/user/tommcflytwitter . If you’re not already aware he is the lead singer of british band McFly and his super cute wedding speech/song went viral. His wife is about to have their first baby so he vlogs about that and they also made an adorable announcement video last Halloween by carving pumpkins and singing a lullaby they wrote. Genuinely lovely funny guy.

    I practically live in Sephora. A $50 gift card would be very amazing!!! I just purchased the Naked 3 palate today. I would love to use this gift card to purchase the Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue fragrance and the lancรดme artliner precision point eyeliner to complete my look. Thanks in advance!! <3

  374. NATALIE H says:

    Although I’m not sure what $50 equates to in ยฃ’s it will all be spent on make up! I’m loving MAC at the minute so it will be a new lip gloss and I’ll probably ask them to do my make up for me whilst I’m at the counter too.

  375. Lisa E says:

    If I were lucky enough to win this gift card, I’d probably get a Nars blush and a Smashbox lip pencil. Note: Today, several hours ago, I visited Sephora and got the UD Cannonball mascara (based on one of your blog posts).

    I think I should win because I’m a true Sephoraholic. ๐Ÿ™‚ The place is like a casino–and yeah, I’m addicted. I go in, shop and think I’m done and then, I go home and find an e-mail with a coupon or some freebies. It gets me back in every time!

    Anyway, I touch type and more importantly, love your blog. Keep up the great work! ๐Ÿ™‚

  389. Roo says:

    Am kinda bummed and kinda excited to be shopping for all new skincare and make up. Post baby (3 months now) skin has changed a lot. For the better but still. I no longer need mattifying products. But instead I’ll need moisturizing products. Yay!

  390. STEPHIE says:

    I can touch type, we learned it in school when I was younger. ๐Ÿ™‚

  391. Chelsea H. says:

    I can type without looking at the keys! Neither one of my parents can do that, so I often end up typing things for them because I can type very quickly. Even my boyfriend who is much more computer-savvy than me is impressed by how quickly I can type without looking at the keyboard.

  392. Lulle says:

    Hubby being a big 9ers fan he was still livid about their defeat against the seahawks so he was kind of supporting the broncos. I was more for Seattle. I guess I won :p

  402. Emily says:

    If I won the $50 gift card I would buy some OCC lip tars, I’ve been wanting to try their products for a while now since I first notice Sephora selling them.

  408. Jennifer M-K says:

    Can you touch type (type without looking at the keys)? – I wish!

    What’s the longest lasting nail polish? – I think it might be Essie but its tough to say. I can usually get close to a good week out of most of my polishes (essie, Zoya, Cult Nails, Spoiled, etc)with the exception of Ciate polishes. Ciate seems to wear very quick on me though so while I love it’s formula and how quick it dries I can’t say I’m a fan of it’s wear time.

    Your pick to win the Super Bowl? – I didn’t really have a favorite but if I had to pick I would’ve said Broncos…they got absolutely destroyed today though.

    What would you get if you won this $50 gift card? – I’ve been on a liquid liner kick so maybe I’d try some new colors or a new skincare mask/product like the new glamglow hydrating mask. I’m open to suggestions though ๐Ÿ™‚

  409. Wayne says:

    Surprisingly interesting Super Bowl for such a blow out. Guess Twitter had a lot to do with it.

    If I won the 50$ gift card I’d use it to rebuild my makeup collection, i had an allergic reaction to a cosmetic product,not knowing which one and itr being really bad, I had to throw everything out! I cheered for the broncos unfortunatly they lost! But Bruno mars was really good!

  439. Nathalie says:

    I’m pining after the new Hourglass blushes — would get one (or two) of them!

  440. Stephanie R says:

    So far, the longest lasting nail polish is my Chanel in Taboo. Zoya’s looking good though. No chipping so far.

    And wow…the Seahawks schooled the Broncos last night! Go Hawks!

  441. Magda says:

    If I win, I would probably buy a perfume or some skincare.
    Longest lasting nail polish? If a nail polish lasts more than 2 days on me, it is a miracle. Nails Inc. base and top coat helps a little. I am planning to try gel nails, since at work I use gloves, which destroy any attempt at pretty nails.
    Have a nice day ๐Ÿ™‚

  442. Amy says:

    If I won I would get some new foundation and new blushes ๐Ÿ™‚

  449. Trude says:

    I feel like I’ve spent half my life at the computer, so it’s good my mom invested in typing classes for my brother and I way back when. ๐Ÿ™‚

  450. Tweakweasel says:

    On the touch typing front, it’s weird; you go through numerous computer classes in school that have you doing ye olde Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing and still never quite get the hang of it…and then one gets into instant messaging and suddenly it’s an absolute flurry of keystrokes. Oh, and IF I were to get the gift card, well, I definitely want to pick up some OCC Lip Tars in Hoochie and two of the latest in Mannequin and Roller Girl. …’course, since I only ever experiment with perfumes when Sephora includes samples in my purchases, I might also be tempted to pick up some Bulgari Man Extreme. A very nice fragrance and at least somewhat cheaper than my ultimate dream fragrance: Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine, which, incidentally, is extremely fun to say when you use a full French accent.

  451. Chloe N says:

    I would love a new perfume!

  452. AmyD says:

  455. Kara says:

    Any glitter polish lasts a long time. That’s why I love them. I love the OPI Liquid Sand polishes.

  456. reggi says:

    longest lasting nail polish? deborah lippmann’s across the universe! probably because it’s a glitter polish..but it also has a very gel-like consistency. absolutely LOVE IT!!!

  457. J Holmes says:

    If I won I would get the new NARS Kauai Eyeshadow duo. Its absolutely amazing! and the pewter/gold lame color is gorgeous

  458. Reg says:

    for makeup, my favorite youtube channel is emilynoel83. I didn’t start wearing makeup at all until I started watching her. She offers great reviews, tutorials, and tips in very concise and detail ways that I really enjoy watching.

  459. Sondra (Soni) Christensen says:

    Actually yes, I can totally touch type. (I think there is a connection because I am also a pianist) I work at a CPA firm & my boss was standing at my desk one day & I think I shocked him with my 10 key skills/speed. (I’m NOT especially good with numbers) But his eyes got big & I happened to glance at him and noticed. I shrugged & said, “I play piano”.
