Win a $50 Sephora eCard from Makeup and Beauty Blog

Rise and shine, morning glory!


I love that phrase… 🙂 I’ll tell you the story behind why I use it one of these days.

How did you sleep? Did you have any dreams? I don’t remember if I did last night. Sometimes I do, but last night is just a sleepy blur.

The sun is out this morning, but I don’t know how long it’ll last, so after I finish my French toast, I’m going for a long walk outside (yes, I’m brining cat treats).

Not much new to report. Last night I did see the new Captain America movie with El Hub and thought it wasn’t bad. Honestly, though, sometimes the superhero movies sort of merge together for me. I love sci-fi — you know that — but the Marvel comic themes generally stick to a handful of story lines. Vengeance, misunderstood hero, quest for power, greed, bizarre need to destroy the world in order to rebuild it anew.

Anywho, I hope you have a nice weekend lined up. I have some blog work to do (some BIG stuff happening next week), but I’ll try to spend some time outside. I do have to repair the damage the storm did to the garden on my deck.

Oh! And guess what? Some neighborhood birds totally destroyed the planter filled with cat grass seedlings for Tabs. I guess they found the seeds yummy.

Yeah, Tabs was none too pleased about that.

Good luck in the giveaway. Talk to you soon. 🙂

  3. Vanessa says:

    I love that I played in the flowers yesterday.

  4. Symphony says:

    MAC Studio Finish for the acne scars of death. I’ve never bought one for under-eye but I think I need to lol.

  5. Agata says:

    I hope you have a great weekend, Karen. Typing a quick hello as I am very sick and cannot stop coughing so actually talking is a real struggle…Hope to finish work and just go to bed!

  6. It’s actually been quite some time since I’ve been to a library.

  7. Trish says:

    I love doing cosplay! At San Diego Comic-Con I was Quaithe, the priestess with the awesome metal mask from GoT, and it was awesome, everyone was staring and I was parting crowds like the red sea! 😉

  8. I don’t have a fave concealer…yet, but I did just order the Bye Bye Under Eye and hope this could be the one.

  9. bindu says:

    more of a corrector than a concealor but the best one that i’ve tried is the giorgio armani master corrector. Doesn’t crease on me like the bobbi brown corrector and somehow corrects the darkness while still looking like natural skin

  10. Josee says:

    In my opinion the best concealer is the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer because it has amazing coverage, blends like a dream and doesn’t seem to crease on me. It also doesn’t feel heavy on my skin.

  11. Elena says:

    My new favorite concealer is the pixi correction concentrate. It’s only 12 bucks (and I have seen Target occasionally run coupons for pixi). It works great for brightening the eye area and on some of the acne scars that are still lingering on my face! Budget friendly too!

  12. April says:

    I haven’t been to a library since I was in college. I used to spend hours in there until it would close at around 2AM. Now that I can get books online and on e-readers, I haven’t ventured into a library in a few years. This reminds me that I need to visit my alma mater soon 😀

  13. joanne maas says:

    i would love to buy one of the smashbox chubby lip stains.

  14. Desiree M. says:

    I hope you have a great weekend! The sun is out again in the city after the rain this past week! I think I last went to a library a year ago…

  15. Meagan Pugliese says:

    My favourite consealer is coastal scents eclipse palette.

  16. Laura says:

    I love the library! I go almost every week!

  17. Joni says:

    Hi karen, hope you are having a great weekend. I haven’t been to a library since my son was around 6 months old (he is 3 1/2 now). But I still keep up with books on my kindle!

  18. Ksenia Zvezdina says:

    My best concealer is famous le touche eclat by YSL. Love the way it conceals without feeling too heavy and looking noticable.

  19. Camille says:

    Karen! I’ve been MIA from reading/viewing beauty blogs. 🙁 but the chaos has settled and now it’s back to the regular grind. i love LOVE Bobbi Brown’s corrector. it hides my dark circles the best. but for the face, i like nars.

    hope you enjoy the weekend! looking forward to the big things you speak of. 🙂

  20. Lisa P. says:

    I just went to the library yesterday to do some genealogy research!

    Best concealer ? Watt’s Up by Benefit ! Moisturizing, creamy, and doesn’t settle into my (ahem) fine lines…

    Happy Saturday to One and All !!!

  22. Grace says:

    My favourite haiku from a Threadless tee lol:

    Sometimes they don’t make sense

    Thanks for contest!

  23. Katia Audrey says:

    I’m currently on a work retreat, lots of resting but tough moneywise!

  24. Jean says:

    I’m cheap. My current favorite foundation is ELF’s Flawless Foundation in Sand. Back to wearing makeup after a two-year hiatus. Need to do something for my aging face. LOL!

  25. Natalie Brown says:

    Hi! The Marvel movies blur together for me too. lol My favorite character is Thor!! Too bad the birds ate all of Tabs potential grass. I planted grass seed once and came home to the yard full of birds eating it. Oh nooooooo!!! lol Hoping you have a great week-end!

  26. Casey says:

    I really like my MAC Studio Finish concealer! Works really great for me when I need to cover up hyper pigmentation from old acne spots!

  27. Tiffanie says:

    I want to see that movie! I loved the first. The story, but more importantly the makeup, was entertaining.

  28. Ashley C says:

    LOVE my local library! Haven’t been in a few weeks, but love that I can get ebooks too 🙂

  29. Tiffany O. says:

    I haven’t been to a library in years. My daughter is 3. I Gonna Start Taking Her.

  30. Tiffany O. says:

    By the way, Ryan is mmmmmmm…..

  31. Rie says:

    Almay concealer is great!

  32. Colleen Boudreau says:

    I haven’t been to the library in probably 10 years.

  33. Megan says:

    I think cosplay is amazing and if I could afford to go to a con, I would do it someday!

  34. Icequeen81 says:

    I don’t use concealers,like I mentioned in your pool about foundation It is pretty hard for me to find a product that does not itch even MAC liquid foundation makes my itch. I recently found a powder that does not itch. Have tried another powder foundation and they itched too.

  35. Lauren says:

    still looking for my fav concealer! i like maybelline fit me.

  36. Kim says:

    I use foundation as concealer, and so far, my favorite is NARS Sheer Glow.

  37. Jennifer says:

    Favorite concealer is nars bec. Its creamy and doest caked up

  38. Kristina says:

    I know people who cosplay. Hearing/watching them freak out during the process of making their costumes is enough for me 😉

  39. Michelle says:

    One thing I used to not like about myself were my ears, but as I got older, I grew to like them. I think they look mousy and cute now.

  40. Lisa Brown says:

    i love to go to the library to check out books

  41. sylvia says:

    still looking for the best concealer for me!

  42. Andrea Amy says:

    i haven’t been to the library in years, but i have so many books sitting on my self waiting to be read that I don’t feel as though I’m missing out on much

  43. Melissa M says:

    I have never tried Sephora but would love to!

  44. Chelsey says:

    I haven’t been to a library in agggges!

  45. anissa says:

    cosplay – not so into it personally, but if that’s your thing i have no problem with it. i guess the closest thing i’ve ever done was when my daughter & i wore our pirate costumes from halloween to a special disney screening of pirates of the caribbean. most of the other attendees were in some sort of pirate-y dress, and there were fully costumed “performers” as well (those are the ones i would consider to have been “cosplayers” much more so). it can be fun 🙂

  46. Kristen says:

    I love cover fx concealer for under eyes and acne.

  47. Alix says:

    I’ve been to stupid, awful work retreats (complete with “trust falls”, no kidding) and awesome ones where we just cruised Narragansett Bay and had lunch.

  48. Susan T. says:

    Many years ago I dressed up as Sailor Moon for Halloween and went out to the bars. Sailor mini-dress, thigh high boots and long blonde pigtails certainly get a lot of attention!

  49. Leila says:

    I love Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. It covers dark circles and wrinkles like magic without going cakey and lasts all day. Comes in lots of shades so you can get a great natural match.

  50. Christina P says:

    I am looking for a foundation & concealer. Thanks for all of those comments about your favorite brand!

  51. Swati says:

    Love your blog, Karen!

  52. Ashley Wade says:

    I’m currently loving maybelline age rewind undereye concealer. It actually covers/neutralizes my undereye circles and stays put. 🙂

  53. Andrea says:

    How do you feel about airbrushed makeup? I recently got married and had airbrush for the first time, and I hated it! I wear heavy foundation normally, but the airbrush made my face feel tight, and sticky!

  54. erin olsen says:

    I help out with the local anime convention, so i’m ok with cosplay just about anywhere for whatever reason. How do you feel about cosplay? I do not cosplay myself but alot of my friends do.

  55. Katie says:

    I just bought a new concealer (for acne/acne scars) and I love it! Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Concealer. Does a good job covering up everything plus it’s paraben-free! 🙂

  56. em says:

    I never dress up not even for halloween. I enjoy seeing other people dress up in costume but it’s not for me

  57. Jaclyn says:

    I haven’t been fond of any of the concealers that I’ve tried so far. I have dry skin so doesn’t take much for face makeup to look patchy on me,
    Thank you for the opportunity win a sephora gift card!
    I’m also a blogger.
    Happy blogging!


  58. Emily says:

    I have never dressed up for cosplay, but I have friends who do it.

  59. Lynn says:

    Never been on a work retreat, and hope i never have to. I dont want to open up

  60. Loris Ayoub says:

    my son is throwing a tantrum,
    what I like about myself is how I try to stay positive when things are not going well

  61. Ola says:

    still on the lookout for the perfect concealer! that sephora card would sure help with that 😉

  62. Kayte CookWatts says:

    I haven’t been to the actual library in a couple of months. But I have been checking book out online- and LOVE it. You can take 10 books out at a time,and then after 21 days, it is automatically returned, so no overdue fines. (Which I’ll admit was a bit of a problem for me in the past)Check your library website- just download the software and go!!

  63. elena says:

    I love going to My local Library!

  64. Loving the new Divergent make-up palette.

  65. kayla p says:

    The last time i went to the library was last weekend. It was a rainy weekend here in the NYC area and i figured the perfect way to escape and free my mind would be at the library reading books. Sometimes i forget myself in a book and when i have to stop reading, it takes me a minute to remember where I am or who I am.

  66. Shandra D says:

    The last time I went to the library was today!

  67. Amber G says:

    I’m really a concealer or newbie. I haven’t invested in a high end concealer just yet, so my current favorite is L.A. girl!

  68. Bianca Rogoveanu says:

    Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Concealer SPF 10

  69. Maegan Morin says:

    I love my hair! It is naturally a beautiful and unique shade of brown. Its thick and soft and it cooperates with whatever I make it try to do. Yah sorry to brag but its the one thing about myself I would never EVER change!

  70. Donna W. says:

    It’s been a tough week. Had to put my cat down as she was very sick with cancer. RIP Marie! A prize would definitely cheer me up!

  71. Kat says:

    Here’s my best concealer in the form of a haiku:

    Concealers hate me
    But I like Bare Minerals
    It has a mirror

  72. Emily C says:

    Lazy Saturday
    Surfing the web in PJs
    Ahhh, that is the life

  73. Justine says:

    I go to the library weekly.

  74. nlm8 says:

    Always on the lookout for new concealer. Right now I’m digging Tarte amazonian clay full coverage concealer.

  75. Kathy Hanley says:

    The last time I was at the library was about two weeks ago to pick up some new releases I had on hold. Today I gifted a friend’s son with a book because he loves to read!

  76. Joanna says:

    Today was suppose to be my chores day but I did the night before so I am pretty much relaxing 🙂

  77. Charlotte says:

    I wish they’d make a Sandman movie!

  78. Kate Z says:

    Went to the library last week to study 😀

  79. Samantha M says:

    A really good full coverage concealer is MUFE’s! Unfortunately mine is a shade too dark 🙁 Thanks for the chance to win! xx

  80. melissa says:

    I love your suggested question! When was the last time I went to a library? Yesterday! I work for my state’s library system. Not as a librarian (I don’t have the master’s degree for it). But as an ITS. Our IT office is right above a library, so I go downstairs very often to borrow books. ^_^

  81. Andrea says:

    I love reading blogs
    Especially yours, Karen
    Have a good weekend

  82. Jennifer says:

    I just went to the library Thursday night. I still read the old-fashioned kind of books.

  83. Ariel R says:

    I’ve been liking Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer lately

  84. Tasia Liu says:

    My favorite concealer for the undereye area is Benefit’s Fake Up. It doesn’t have the highest coverage, but my dark circles aren’t too noticeable so the coverage is perfect for me. The most important aspect of it is that it doesn’t crease on me.

  85. Jessica says:

    What do I love about myself? Hmmm, I would have to say my lips!

  86. maria says:

    I’m in law school so I go to the library almost every day 🙁

  87. crystalDL says:

    I haven’t been in the local library in about 5 yrs but I go to their ebooks website about once a week& borrow books that way.

  88. Meg says:

    I think the best concealer is the Kat Von D one. I just wish it came in a few lighter colors so I could use it to brighten under my eyes!

  89. Cynthia B says:

    I love Philosophy’s concealer. It’s creamy and smooth, stays put throughout my day even with my very oily skin.

  90. Amanda Mendez says:

    We have a retreat every year at my bosses lake house and it’s a blast!

  91. Marina Grigório says:

    Been to a library in the last week, then do my masters contacts with books is constant! I think I live more in the library (either physical or virtual) than at home! tired :/

  92. Sandy Lessingham says:

    Your blog posts are always so visually appealing and funny! Thanks for the wonderful giveaway Karen, happy weekend. 🙂

  93. Anna says:

    I am trying to finish a final paper, but the Sephora VIB sale has been haunting me and calling my name in mid-sentence.
    I was actually looking at your site to see if you had any recent product recommendations 🙂 Might try out the new Tarte airbrush clay foundations for this vib sale.
    anyway, thank you for the giveaway!

  94. Kimbre says:

    Cosplay makeup is so fun! I do character makeup a lot, especially from the game League of Legends. So far I’ve done Lux, Miss Fortune, and Leblanc!

  95. Maria Malaveci says:

    Just went to the library today with my little ones!

  96. susan says:

    I just went to the library yesterday!

  97. Tracy Broughton says:

    I need to get a new concealer and foundation. I thought that the one that I was using was okay, but came to realize that my skin is changing as I age and I need something new. I don’t want to look like I have a bunch of gunk on my face! I want to look natural (okay, naturally flawless). Lol.

  98. Brooke says:

    I last visited the library last week. I’m getting lots of books about pregnancy!

  99. Brenda Flores says:

    My favorite foundation is Makeup Forever HD

    I love daily deal shopping websites! I’m addicted!

  102. Sonia says:

    I think cosplay is a very strange hobby but hey to each their own!

  103. Liz says:

    LAthough I’ve never participated in it myself, I’ve always enjoyed seeing people do it well. It’s such a creative way to show your fandom!

  104. Britany says:

    The best concealer is Mac’s prolongwear. Like the name suggests, its very long lasting and very blendable!

  105. jen. says:

    I just started using the touche eclat dupe by… I don’t even know what brand, now that I think of it. Maybe Maybelline? I think so. It’s pretty great though, so I should probably double check because I’m sure I’ll repurchase. Right now my Sephora fund is going toward the YSL neutral glossy stains… sigh. I’m in love.

  106. courtney b says:

    ohh i love seeing a pic of ryan gosseling woo hoo 🙂 yum! love your blog and love these little giveaways! xoxo

  107. Rachel Jefvert says:

    I love Benefit Erase Paste; great for brightening the inner corners of my eyes!

  108. I’ve dressed once in a cosplay outfit at Comic Con. It’s not something I would do all the time.

  109. Maren says:

    I haven’t found the best concealer yet. Gotta wait til the one I’m using runs out, then I’ll try another…

  110. Katy says:

    I’m waiting for it to stay warm long enough for me to grow catgrass outside. Your poor Tabs! My cat loves her catgrass so much.

  111. Amy says:

    I went to the library just last week.



  113. Margarita says:

    I am currently using Laura Mercier Secret Camoflauge and Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. Love the Nars more!

  114. Cynthia says:

    The best concealer I’ve tried and love is Josie Maran’s Argan Creamy Concealer Crayon. It covers my slight dark circles and is creamy and easy to blend. It doesn’t look fake at all.

  115. Rhea says:

    Mac’s studio concealer is great for blemishes but creamy enough for under eye!

    Rhea recently posted … A Play Date For My Nails

  116. monica says:

    MAC pro longwear is the best coverage I have ever used!

  117. Marli Billinger says:

    I like MAC Prolongwear concealer because it lasts all day with no creasing.

  118. Lisa K says:

    I love the library! I proudly keep my library card on my key ring and find people are surprised that libraries still exist.

  119. Deanna says:

    I haven’t been to the library in a few months. I’ve been buying a lot of e-books for my Kindle lately. Whoops! LOL

  120. Kristy says:

    I’m always on the hunt for a better concealer. I currently use Laura Mercier Secret Camoflauge, which is great, but by the end of the day all of my spots have come out to play :O

  121. Amber says:

    OCC Skin Conceal is the only product that covers my facial redness due to a thyroid condition. That stuff rocks!

  122. AmyBS says:

    I go to the library at least once a week! Free books, movies and CDs means more makeup money!

    I just got maybe line fitme concealer and of all the ones I’ve tried, I’ve had the best luck with it

  123. Nicole says:

    One thing I love about myself is how I don’t settle for less than I deserve.

  124. Robin says:

    The library is awesome!!! I have a 3 and a 7 year old. We go to the library just about every other week. And I totally LOVE the library for checking out kindle books.

  125. latanya says:

    Yes, I have been on a work retreat and it was a lot of fun

  126. Bhevarri says:

    I was last at the library very recently 🙂 Just a few months ago, for school books!

  127. Manna says:

    We have a brand new library in my small town, I have only been there a couple of times to print things since I don’t have a printer. I haven’t checked out a book in at least 5 years!

  128. Kimberley Dinh says:

    Hi Karen! My favourite under eye concealer is the bourjois healthy mix concealer, it’s lovely to blend out. Unfortunately it doesn’t do much for my marks and scars, I’m still on the hunt for one that does 🙂

  129. Jennifer says:

    I was at a library this morning for a book sale. I bought: “All Cakes Considered” and “29 Gifts: How a Month of Giving Can Change Your Life.”

  130. MsAnne says:

    I need to wash my hair

  131. H says:

    Tarte Maracuja Creaseless!

  132. E Kay says:

    I was at the Library a few weeks ago

  133. @debbutterflys says:

    happy rainy day saturday

  134. Lindsey M says:

    I am an awful person. I have not been to a library in several years. That will quickly change when I move, though.

  135. Debbie Clauer says:

    I went to the library last week for some CD’s. It had been several months since I had been there.

  136. Niki Stransky says:

    I miss my beautiful cat especially when I see your beautiful photos.

  137. Natasha says:

    The last time I went to the library was earlier this week – kiddo’s on spring break, so we NEED something to keep her busy until she goes back!

  138. kristen says:

    I love my humor. I come from a very funny family, and was never the extroverted one, but I retain my quick wit. Also, when I’m not around my super extroverted siblings, I’m the funny one of my friends 🙂

  139. Brooke says:

    First, yes, please tell us the story behind good morning, glory! Second, I’ve heard the villain in Winter Soldier is cute!! He’s The Mad Hatter in Once Upon a Time (which I love, btw) and he was okay, a pretty minor character though and his hair was a bit weird, IMO.

  140. Jessie C. says:

    I was in the library just last week.

  141. Krista says:

    I’m working on a Luffy cosplay from One Piece. My current challenge is getting the old lady stank out of a red vest I got from the thrift store. Eventually I want to construct a full sized Alphonse Elric suit of armor, complete with a small Edward to sit on my shoulders.

  142. Kristina Z says:

    I LOVE the NARS concealer. I bought one months ago and I use it almost every day 🙂 Best Sephora purchase I’ve made recently.

  143. Melanie says:

    Chic Week at Sephora!!! I’m super happy while my wallet is super sad.
    The last time I was in a library was when I was in grad school.

  144. renee says:

    i plan on entering every week until i win. i hope that i win this week since it’s the vib sale at sephora. #determined

  145. Monica says:

    does having a library in my house count? honestly I don’t know when the last time I stepped into a library was…there was a library like place in a museum I visited last year in October

  146. Mandy says:

    I have an obsession with scented candles! They’re so beautiful & certain ones help me into certain moods ( help me to work, help me to sleep )!

  147. BooBooNinja says:

    Happy Caturday!

  148. I took my kids to the library a couple years ago. Turns out I don’t know how to work a library anymore! No more alphabetical titles and no more card catalogs. Yep…I’m that old! LOL

  149. Sherry says:

    I love Nars Creamy Concealer. I use it all over my face. It’s amazing!

  150. Laura says:

    I haven’t found any really GREAT concealer. Everything creases under my eyes and nothing I’ve tried really conceals blemishes without making dryness more obvious. Although I really liked Benefit’s Eye Bright for underneath my eyes when I used it.

  151. Rhea W. says:

    I have been on a quest for the right concealer. Anything that isn’t liquid looks too cakey on me. I want to try Mac Pro Longwear Concealer but we don’t have any Pro stores in my sad little state. 🙁

  152. Michelle says:

    Hi Karen!
    I’m at the library on a weekly basis. The last book I read was the Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd & it’s an amazing story, I highly recommend it. Enjoy your weekend! =)

  153. Cez says:

    My favorite undereye concealer combo right now is Graftobian’s Color Corrector in Soft Orange w/ MAC’s Prolongwear Concealer in NC35, I set it with Ben Nye’s loose powder in Pretty Pink….ERMAGHERD all together they last forevah!!! 😀

  154. Sarah W says:

    My bf and I love library book sales! We go all the time.

  155. Jody says:

    Work has been killing me lately.

  156. MelodyJ says:

    I’ve been sick for a few days. I did go see Divergent. I liked it. But can see where it’s not for everybody.

  157. stacy says:

    Mac Select Cover put in a small container and dried out until thick and creamy – makes the best concealer I’ve ever used.

  158. Charlotte says:

    The last time I went into a library was recently to pick up something for work; i found out that I couldn’t take anything out cause I owed $100 dollars in late fees from a couple books I took out when I was 18!!! I’m 24 now….moral of the story, don’t forget to return your library books!! Ha.

    i still haven’t found the best concealer!

  160. Kayvid says:

    There is no best concealer on the market. I have tried every single one and they all crease. And I probably went to library last when I was in school, so maybe 8 years ago…

  161. Claire says:

    Claudio Riaz has a pretty rad concealer.

  162. Chloe Purnama says:

    I absolutely LOVEEE the Nars Creamy Concealer & the Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer to go! Those 2 are my Holy Grail! And the last time I went to a library was about 2 years ago (LOL, seriously), because at my city, there are no public libraries (maybe)

  163. Tania G says:

    I am at the library almost weekly, taking kids there to get books.
    It’s finally warming up here and looking a bit like spring.

  164. Erika C. says:

    One of all time favorite makeup highlighters is the Balm’s Mary-Lou Manizer. The color payoff is umm PRETTY AWESOME! Sorry for yelling, lol.

  165. Janice Cooper says:

    I love wearing eye makeup especially mascara. I wear very black.

  166. Stephanie G says:

    I went to the library yesterday! Love libraries!

  167. Niki T. says:

    I love my sense of humor the most I think. Sarcastic, dirty and a little twisted! LOL

  168. Kait says:

    Went to the library today 🙂

  169. Stephanie says:

    I went to the library a few weeks ago with my niece. She’s three and loves books so it’s a perfect little trip to give her parents a break.

  170. Barbara B says:

    Just got home from Shuto Con in Lansing, MI. I do not cosplay but my daughter was Kirigiri from Dangan Ronpa.

  171. Lori P says:

    I went to the library today. I go every Saturday and they feed my reading addiction

  172. Bunny says:

    I don’t have a concealer, I probably should but it’s so hard to find anything light enough and I don’t have much to conceal most of the time.

  173. Angie R. says:

    I go to a library quite often, but it’s usually to grab a coffee from Starbuck’s. Oh, I work at a University. 🙂

  174. Berry says:

    I don’t have a favorite concealer, but I’m always looking for the perfect one. They all seem to settle in those little lines under my eyes.

  175. Alissa Cady says:

    I teach so the last time I went to the library was yesterday. My class asked me how you tell if a butterfly is a boy or girl, I was hoping it was in a book somewhere.

  176. susie king says:

    I went to the library last in Thursday. Thanks for the opportunity.

  177. mrsshukra says:

    Very difficult weekend… reading your blog is a treat!

  178. Clemence says:

    I’ve never cosplayed before!

  179. Aida says:

    Ryan looks so yummy in this picture 🙂

  180. Allison says:

    Loving all the library love here– I’m a librarian! For those who haven’t been to a library in years, drop by and see what’s new… your library probably lends ebooks and might even offer digital magazine and music downloads, too. 🙂

  181. Kate G says:

    I will leave a comment in the form of a haiku I wrote with my review of tres emmes dry shampoo recently on my tiny blog.

    Tres Emme trouble

    I have Cover Girl concealer, but I rarely use it. I probably should, though 🙂

  185. Tori says:

    I recently purchased Mac Studio Finish concealer after finally running out of their Studio sculpt. I’m really liking it so far. Good coverage and it sticks around all day!

  186. I’m really hoping to purchase the MAC Prolongwear Concealer sometime soon because I’ve heard so many good things about it. I currently use the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer and while it’s an okay concealer, it’s not the best.

  187. Corey says:

    The best concealer I’ve ever used was YSL Touche Eclat. I was sent a sample of it with a Sephora order and when I first put it on I didn’t feel like it covered so well. But when I went out I kept getting these amazing comments from people saying my eyes look so bright and refreshed. My ma even said it made me glow!

  188. Dimana Dyakova says:

    When was the last time you went to a library?
    Last month. I’m studying Library Science and I need to be in the library often to do my researches etc 🙂

  189. My birthday is tomorrow so let’s see if i’m getting lucki on my day 🙂
    I came across your blog ans really liked it, also linked one of your posts in my last post(http://loveslikearunway.com/e-l-f-studio-contouring-blush-bronzing-powder/), and I don’t use concealer :O.

  190. Tracy says:

    What’s the best concealer and why. Definitely Nars Radiant creamy concealer. It’s the only one that doesn’t crease under my eyes or breakdown by the end of the day when used to spot conceal. I’ve also use darker colors to contour.

  191. Sarah says:

    My favourite concealer for under my eyes is the ellis faas one and for covering up blemishes I really like the obsessive compulsive cosmetics one.

  192. Laurinha says:

    I love TheBalm concealers, I set them w/ a little translucent powder and hv color enough to cover and iluminate my under eye area. And stays all day long.

  193. INCI says:

    A library? Yesterday, mam. I went it yesterday. 🙂

  194. Meghan l says:

    I do not use foundation at all. I feel like my skin can’t breathe. I just starting using makeup brushes about 6 months ago and I only use the too faced shadow brushes. Since I wash them with sephora purifying brush shampoo after every use I then put them in a toothbrush holder I got just for the brushes. It helps them air dry faster 🙂

  195. tiffany says:

    I wish I had a go-to concealer bc I woke up two days ago with an unexplained black eye! I have absolutely no idea what happened to cause it so it is pretty funny…but looks awful. I take little comfort in being told I can make a shiner look pretty (haha). Unfortunately all of my basics are failing me…I don’t wear heavy makeup (ever) so it is really challenging to take the purple edge off. Ah well, at least I can pretend I have a really good story when people ask, right?!

  196. Liz says:

    I go to the library ALL THE TIME. I love my library.

  197. Aimen says:

    I’m still in search for the PERFECT concealer but for now my love is DEFINITELY the Garnier Skin Renew Anti – Dark Circle Roller! Use it just about everyday lol

  198. Amy says:

    For concealer I like Boing by Benefit. It’s too yellowy for the eye area, but perfect for blemishes.

  199. Kathy Fowler says:

    I love all your cat themed posts!

  200. Rhoda K says:

    Having a great Sunday consisting of football and F1 🙂

  201. Kim Pincombe Cole says:

    Right now I’m loving the NYX Full Coverage Concealer In A Jar – bought it on a whim and found it really works great for me!

  202. Katrina says:

    I think today might actually be a makeup free day – besides working on laundry and getting groceries I don’t have much reason to look that presentable.

  203. Cynthia F. says:

    I’m such a bookworm. I have an eReader, so I usually get my books from the library’s website, but I end up in the physical library building anyway probably about 6 times a year when there’s a good book that’s just not available in electric format.

  204. Kylie says:

    I’m not a cosplayer, but my boyfriend is big into that scene for the Cons!
    My favorite concealer is Bobbi Brown Color Corrector. Covers anything, blends beautifully, and lasts all day.

  205. jc says:

    I love cats!

  206. simona says:

    Mac studio finish, e’ il mio correttore preferito…per il momento!!

  207. Stephanie says:

    I just discovered AmorePacific foundation, I wish it wasn’t $70. Also, I just finished Warm Bodies, it was a great read!

  208. Isabel says:

    I’ve never done cosplay before, but some of my friends have and it’s really impressive to see them make their own costumes by hand! Many of them look spot on!

  209. Kelsey says:

    The last time I went to the library was yesterday! I work on campus at my college library (more fun than you think!)

  210. Daraya says:

    I haven’t been to the library in forever, because I can just download books on my tablet. But I love hard-copy books better than e-books, so I should really stop by the library soon!

  211. Sylvia says:

    I haven’t found a concealer I like, I think I expect to much. I went to a library yesterday as I’m somewhat of a library addict. Happy Sunday everyone!

  212. Marta says:

    Have a good Sunday!

  213. GB says:

    Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla is amazing — it matches my skin tone perfectly, doesn’t break me out, and lasts forever on my oily skin.

  214. Ann says:

    I have been out in my garden for a week and now we have a hard frost! o_O

  215. Ashwini says:

    I find Cosplay very interesting. The creativity and the hardwork people do to make their costumes as close as possible to the real one!

  216. mary-Gaëlle says:

    The last time I went to the library was probably a week ago to rent dallas buyers club at my college library

  217. Isabella says:

    Something I love about myself is that I’m a thinker. I always find a way to solve a problem 😉

  218. Anastasiya says:

    I love my green eyes))

  219. AMBER says:

    Best concealer has to be Makeup Forever full coverage concealer!

  220. Thanks for the lovely giveaway!! xx
    Rachel @ Bakerita recently posted … Abroad Bites: Paris, France

  221. A. Hollingsworth says:

    My favorite concealer is mac (pods). I love how easy it is to apply with just my fingers and how great the coverage is; most importantly, love that this company continues to cater to women of all skin tones (a problem I have with a lot of other cosmetic brands).

  222. Ashleigh says:

    How do you feel about cosplay? Have you ever dressed up in costume for a convention or anything like that? I think cosplayers are awesome but I do not have the sewing skills or the creativity to pull it off (yet). I follow Enayla Cosplay on facebook and the costumes she makes are gorgeous. http://tinyurl.com/lzs8e4v <— example.

  223. Nadja says:

    Hi Karen! Love your blog. I am totally not a cos-player, Halloween is as close as it gets for me. I am still in college and working at Urban Outfitter, so no work retreat (yet, I hope!). Right now, my favorite concealer is actually a mix of my Tarte Maracuja Creaseless concealer and Make Up Forever’s Full Cover concealer. I go to the library every week, but it’s mostly to do homework. What I love most about myself are my freckles in the summer.

    Whenever I work
    I wish I were hiking up
    On Mount Tam instead.

  224. hannah says:

    Just swatched the Josie Maran coconut water gel blushes, and I’m itching to buy them all 🙂

  225. Jen says:

    I used to go the library every week with my family before college, but since I have been in college I actually haven’t been to the library that often. The last time was like a little over a week ago. 🙂

  226. Jess says:

    I recently purchased MUFE’s Full Cover Concealer along with the MUFE Face and Body foundation. I use a small amount of the concealer (it’s very pigmented) to cover up a few imperfections, the best part is that it’s waterproof and won’t budge all day! The two of these together allow for my face to look flawless with a natural finish. 🙂

  227. nat ogu says:

    ive done cosplay it can be fun with a group of friends , if they want to do it again id probably be up for a bobs burgers one

  228. Jessie says:

    Still looking for that perfect concealer!

  229. Claire says:

    I’m loving Mac Moisture Foundation at the moment x

  230. Lynda says:

    i’m curious about the loreal pore vanisher right now.

  231. Ria says:

    I just got the TimeBalm Concealer and am liking it so far! Medium ended up being a good shade for me, and I love how creamy and easy to apply it is 🙂

  232. Ivana Jankovic says:

    I go to the library once a week 🙂

  233. Kendra says:

    The last time I went to the library was a few months ago, I was studying for the nursing board exam. A few months later I finally passed the test and now am a Registered Nurse (:

  234. Danielle says:

    Cosplay can be a lot of fun. People take a lot of joy in it.

  235. Nataya says:

    Last time I went to libarary was about 6 years ago!

  236. Katherine says:

    My favorite concealer for everyday is theBalm’s Time Balm and I top it with YSL’s Touche Eclat on particularly bad dark circle days 🙂

  237. Bridget Heiple Reich says:

    Some things I like about myself – my eye color and sometimes my hair! 🙂 It’s been way too long since I’ve been to the library.

  238. Jessica says:

    I’m liking RMS uncoverup as my under eye concealer, but i still haven’t found a favorite.

  239. Julie B. says:

    I love Karen’s blog
    I live vicariously
    through her fine makeup!

  240. Alisson H says:

    I love how content I am with myself (my body, my flaws) most of the time. I have my bad days but for the most part I am perfectly content being who I am and being in my own skin.
    Also if I won this gift card I am all over the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette, have to have it! 🙂

  241. Miki says:

    Currently working on a couple research papers, so I’ve been in and out of the library recently!

  243. Laura says:

    i went to the library last month.

  244. Keri says:

    I love NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer! It’s my go-to for undereyes.

    As for cosplay, I’ve never done it and don’t plan to, but have many friends who do. Side effect of going to MIT. 🙂

  245. MK says:

    I go to the library all the time! Was just there last week.

  246. Bcteagirl says:

    Love libraries. I’m going to say March? I took out 4 books so was set for a little while 😛

  250. Terri says:

    I stopped by the library at my college on Thursday to pick up a book for class prep next semester.

  251. Melinda L. says:

    I enjoyed cosplaying, it was fun. I have done it twice, wonderful experience for sure

  252. Darling says:

    I came to your blog to read a review of Chanel’s Les Beiges. I want to buy it but, like you, I’ve had iffy encounters with beige powders. But I’m going to try it out soon.

  253. Vanessa F says:

    I went to the library last week!

  254. Christine says:

    Oh yes I cosplayed for a few years when I had time to go to anime and video game conventions. It was fun to pose for pictures yet still be anonymous.

  255. Michelle says:

    I am still actually searching for the perfect concealer that won’t make my skin break out and will work for my blemishes/spots AND the undereye area! I’m currently using a couple of ‘drugstore’ brands (L’Oreal and Garnier) – one for face and one for the eyes – but I’d LOVE to find one which will work for both.

  256. Yasmin Hussein says:

    The last time that I went to a library was yesterday as I was studying for term FINALS! I will go back tomorrow after chillaxing at home on sunday.

  257. Jordi says:

    It Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye concealer is amazing! It takes a bit of effort to get it just right but then it looks flawless.

    I recently moved out from home

    My favorite concealer is NARS creamy concealer!

  269. Michelle says:

    I haven’t actually been to a library in a while, BUT my husband is a librarian and he delivers library books to me at home and even returns them for me! I think it’s a pretty cool perk. 🙂

  270. Melissa says:

    I don’t have a fav concealer, I’m still on the hunt for one. I just bought Tarte’s new colored clay CC primer!

  271. Paige says:

    I went to the Saratoga library week before last because there is great natural light by the study area 🙂 Fav concealer is hands-down Amazing Cosmetics. Gets through anything without breaking a sweat

  272. Stacey R says:

    I love cats, especially my Sven (Svenster), Turkey (Turks), and Waffles (lil’ miss Waffles). Your cat is super cute and I love that you take treats out with you when you go for a walk. I bet your treats brings all the cats to the yard.

  275. Mardi says:

    Concealer and I do NOT get on. It makes me look older and wrinklier. Since my dark circles aren’t that bad and I wear glasses I just use a bit of foundation mixed with a dot of eye cream under my eyes.

  276. Liz says:

    I have been on a work retreat before. It was fine.

  277. Krizzie says:

    I joined this giveaway because the Goz is the one offering the gift card. Yes, please.

    I haven’t been to a library in over four years, so long as you don’t count the engineering library, in which I read none of the books but spent many a night working on a project!

  279. Erika B. says:

    I’ve never dressed up for a convention or anything, but I love watching youtube videos of people showing how to do makeup for the costumes. Some of them are so amazing!

  280. Amanda Sakovitz says:

    I haven’t been to a library in awhile. I think its been months.

  281. Amy says:

    Loving benefit boi-ing concealer! Blemishes and dark under eye circles just disappear. Oh – gimme brow is also magical.

  282. Petunia says:

    Still looking for HG concealer. I always use Laura Mercier. It is ok. Maybe the fact that I still use it means it is HG and I just don’t understand the concept?

  283. Veronica V says:

    The best concealer that I have used is Boing by Benefit. It’s smooth not cakey so you can build coverage, and it lasts all day.

  284. Lisaa says:

    I enjoy the local library. I was there Saturday. It’s so easy to go online and request books to be put on hold. When they come in, I receive an email and I go pick them up. It’s a great service, no searching the stacks for your books!

  285. chiara says:

    Hi Karen! I looove NARS Creamy concealer simply because it does the job! …and also it’s a great color match for me!

  286. Jennifer Pham says:

    Cosplay seems awesome to me, and I respect it. I’d like to try but I know it’s a huge commitment to make, of time, energy, investment.

  287. Amber says:

    Hmm, well I’ll answer two …because I can!

    I was in a library almost two months ago? I rented John Green’s The Fault In OUr Stars. So good. Such tears.

    With cosplay, I have yet to do that but I may surprise the boyfriend with a transformers cosplay for him 🙂

    Thanks Karen!

  288. Kimberley says:

    My favorite concealer was Studio Sculpt concealer by MAC. But now it’s discontinued. 🙁 My favorite foundation right now is CoverGirl Queen 3 in 1 foundation. I love it!!

  294. Regina Reed says:

    I actually went to the library the other day! I am trying to check out books more instead of buying them…unless it’s your fave (or it’s a reference book, or for decoration) there really is no point in purchasing.

I dressed up in costume for my curling match, though. Every team was assigned a team name and we had to dress the part…it was a lot if fun 🙂

    Cosplay can be cool… But it has to be done right…

    I have mad respect for cosplayers, but I’m a total party pooper and seldom dress up at all. As for concealers, I’m a pretty big fan of Revlon’s Photoready stick. I love that they have yellow undertones; it’s surprising how hard those kinds of shades are to find in solid drugstore concealers! I also dig Garnier’s tinted under-eye roller. I don’t have serious bags or discoloration under my eyes, but I find that it does help me look more awake!

    I love that I am a very honest person without being overly hurtful.

    I’ve been using the Maybelline instant age rewind for my undereyes but I really want to try out the Nars concealer.

    I was in the library last week. I should be in one right now, but screw studying! 🙂

    The last time I went to a library was last week! I visit the ones on campus quite a bit…the main one is very quiet and it goes on forever. It feels like being in a church or some catacombs hehe.

    I used my scooter for the first time in forever today and it was so fun!
