7 Ways to Win a $50 eGift Card From Sephora! (Ends Monday)

A Makeup and Beauty Blog giveaway

Tabs the Cat Presents a Makeup and Beauty Blog Giveaway



Hello and happy Caturday/Saturday to ya! I’m really, really excited this morning.

Well, more like my roots are excited, because I’m finally, after what feels like eons, going to the salon to get my hair colored today. HOORAY TIMES INFINITY! :)

No cut today (I’m growing it out), just roots and a touchup for my highlights. The plan is to stick with the same color I have now (because if it ain’t broke…), but I’m not 100% certain that’s going to happen.

I found this picture of Megan Fox a while back when I was looking for hair inspiration, and I absolutely love the rich, chocolately color. I figure it’s fall, so it’s as good a time as any to go darker, but I know myself way too well… I’d probably love it for about a day or so, and then start getting itchy again for lighter hair.

We’ll see, we’ll see. I usually decide the second my butt hits the chair.

When I told El Hub about my hair plans, I figured he’d be on board because he likes my hair long, but he was surprisingly nonchalant about the whole thing. He mumbled something about not getting too attached to it because I’ll “eventually just chop it all off anyway,” which is totally true, hahaha!

Whatevs. It gives me something to do.

In other news, I hope your weekend got off to a lovely start. Are you in prime relaxation mode? Before you grab that second cup of coffee, enter this weekend’s Sephora eCard giveaway. It only takes a minute, and RyGos and Tabs think you should.

It’s just my way of saying thank you for visiting. Whenever you visit MBB, I always hope you leave with a smile. :)

Good luck, and have a wonderful weekend, babe. Maybe we’ll bump into each other on Twitter or Facebook today.

  1. Hannah S. says:

    Fall scented candles are the best! One reason why this is my favorite time of year :)

  2. Heidi says:

    I have a foundation brush, but I usually just end up using my fingers. I guess I’m not patient enough to fish around for multiple brushes during my makeup routine, so the fewer the better.

  3. Joanne E. says:

    I like the look of foundation on skin after using a brush.

  4. Karin says:

    I love nail polish.I have more than 500

  5. Lisa Brown says:

    i like lighter colored nail polish

  6. Brandi says:

    I love dark nail polish colors for the fall!

  7. am says:

    I love dark nails, pretty much year round.

  8. I wear mineral foundation, so I always use a big fluffy brush. Happy Caturday!

  9. Alix says:

    Lighter polish on fingers, darker/brighter on toes.

  10. ashley cabell says:

    I love nude polish. I apply my foundation with a sponge, a Beauty Blender to be exact. I LOVE marshmallows in my hot chocolate! Thank you for the giveaway sweetie!

  11. Candace says:

    It’s a must for me to use a brush with my foundation. Makes it look more flawless IMO.

  12. Donna says:

    I like the dark nail polish on other people but not so much on me. 😔

  13. Sun says:

    After years of having short hair, my younger daughter finally convinced me to grow out my hair so she has another guinea pig for her hair braiding wizardry. That stage where my hair was hitting my shoulders was THE WORST, as bad as that awkward stage where you’re growing out your bangs and they’re too long and cover your eyes, but too short to tuck behind your ears. The things I do for my kids… ;-)

  14. Katrina del Pozo says:

    I use my fingers for tinted moisturizer & a brush for full cover foundations

  15. savannah says:

    I love nude nail polish!

  16. Elizabeth says:

    I usually apply my foundation with a brush.

  17. sweeks1980 says:

    For BB cream or tinted moisturizer, I’ll usually use my fingers or an extra powder brush I have (it makes for surprisingly even coverage). For foundation, I apply and spread it with a foundation brush and then blend it with a Beauty Blender sponge.

  18. CKG says:

    Ah, perfect nude lipstick… So many things to so many people. Still looking for that! Would love to try that TF Sable Smoke or maybe La Metier de Beaute’s San Tropez.
    Just ordered a Rimmel Nude Delight to try (fingers crossed).

  19. Sasha says:

    Darker polishes! Especially Chanel Vamp! :-)

    & I apply foundation with my fingers though I know I’m in the minority. I don’t dare try using my beloved 187, I love it too much for bronzer!

  20. camille says:

    Karen! Hello! I have to go back to the desert tomorrow. :( I’m SUPER sad, and have been debating on leaving Monday, but I have to be a grown up and stick with my (second) original plan.

    *sigh* Nor*Cal has been lovely. I will continue to read your blog, as I long to be back home.

    LoL. a tad dramatic, eh? Have a lovely weekend, Karen! Can’t wait to see what you got did at the parlor :)

  21. Olivia K says:

    Love light and dark nail polishes but I’m definitely huge on them having to be suiting of the season!

  22. Vanessa F says:

    I like to coordinate my nails with the season but I am definitely drawn to bright, saturated nail color. Looking forward to some of the dark hues for fall!

  23. hanna says:

    Can’t wait for fall. I love those scents.

  24. Mindy says:

    Enjoy reading your blog and keeping up to date. I’m definitely into trends and keeping up with the newest, best, and limited editions

  25. Agata says:

    I always leave MBB with a smile, a big one! I am on my 4th cup of coffee, working :-/ but hopefully I will talk my hubby to go to the mall after! My excuse is that I have to exchange a top I bought online and I need a smaller size (yay!!!)

  26. I love marshmallows in my hot chocolate. It’s incomplete without them.

  27. Malaka says:

    I love marshmallows. Period. But especially in my hot chocolate.

  28. Mo says:

    I absolutely LOVE marshmallows in my hot chocolate!

  29. Mallory Barnhart says:

    I’ve been itching to dye my hair, but I’m trying to get it au natural since I haven’t seen my natural color in YEARS. I love dark nail polishes, year round! I’ve settled on using a large stipple brush to apply my foundation, but when my brushes get to be a mess (currently) I just use my fingers.

  30. Justine says:

    I’ve never ridden a Segway.

  31. I bet the color of Megan’s hair in that pic would look great on you, Karen! I am a bit torn myself on whether to change my hair color or not. Right now it’s reddish brown, but because of different coloring jobs in the past my roots are showing up lighter. I don’t know if I should just let it all grow out and go red, or touch up the roots and make them darker. But if I do the latter then I will never be able to go to the lighter red that I like so much…

  32. Jennifer Dysart says:

    I’m baking a pie tonight! <3

  33. Valerie says:

    The first time I tried YSL’s glossy stains I was not impressed. I was actually depressed about it because for 34 USD I really wanted it to work on me but it was really sticky and the dark color was patchy on my lips…skip to literally yesterday I went to Sephora and I saw that YSL had a new shade line of their much raved about glossy stains, so I decided to take the plunge again and I am happy to say I am in love :) I bought Naughty Mauve and I love the plumping effect it gives my lips plus it isn’t sticky and the color goes on perfectly…in short I guess love sometimes happens when you really want it to :)

  34. Lei says:

    I’m so excited for sweater weather and hot pho. :3

  35. Jennifer says:

    I have a huge issue with nail polish–I love the idea of it, but I don’t have the patience for it to dry so it always screws up, and the next day I start picking at it. As for my favourite nude lippie, NYX makes a great one but I can’t remember what it’s called!

  36. Siobhan says:

    I like rich coloured nail polish. Lighter and brighter in the summer, and darker, more jewel-toned in the fall and winter :)

  37. Eva says:

    I have two words for you about nail polish: Chanel Taboo. Wowza. I never knew my nails could be that beautiful.

  38. Eren says:

    Thank you for another awesome giveaway!

  39. Joanna says:

    My greatest accomplishment this week was making amends with a friend (forgiving others is so much better than holding grudges).

  40. Maria J. says:

    I Love applying my Foundation with a synthetic face brush like the Face Expert Brush from Real Techniques or Sigma F82 and my concealer with a damp beauty blender because I avoid creasing that way. I also like to to apply foundation around the corners of my nose with the pointy side of the beauty blender

  41. Tiffany says:

    I’m not sure if I should place another sephora order….but the little hourglass set just looks too cute!

  42. maria says:

    Haven’t been to Sephora in awhile. This could come in handy. Would love some Dior nailpolishes!

  43. Valentina says:

    Let’s answer two this time.. I kinda prefer darker nail polishes, but some shades of red and pinky-red are lovely too! AND I apply foundation with my fingers at the moment, but I’d like to get a brush for that, maybe a stippling brush (not a flat one though, don’t like it!)
    :)

  44. Lauren says:

    love dark nail polish!

  45. Andrea Amy says:

    I actually use my fingers to apply foundation, never got used to using anything else. I do like marshmallows in my hot chocolate, and last night we had pork stirfry and rice for dinner. thanks for the amazing giveaway.

  46. Crystal F. says:

    Mmm yes to the marshmallows in hot chocolate! Just answering the question makes me crave it but it’s still too hot in the south for hot drinks…

  47. Colleen Boudreau says:

    Last night I had pizza for dinner.

  48. cristina says:

    Dark polish.

  49. Valerie C. says:

    I bought the new powder foundation from MUFE and I like it. I’m oily and need coverage. I’d get a primer & concealer if I win :)

  50. Victoria says:

    I love using my Real Techniques eyeshadow brush to apply concealer!

  51. cristina says:

    Both fingers and tools when applying foundation. Cheers!

  60. Roxanne says:

    I love lighter nail polishes. Goes better with my fair skin!

  71. Anna says:

    I use Mac Studio Sculpt with a beauty blender sponge, I like to get the sponge wet with Studio Fix+ before I apply. I’m in love with this technique. For big nights out I will use a foundation brush and my fingers for more coverage.

  72. Mandy says:

    The Rae Morris Radiance brush is by far the best foundation buffing brush for me. No streaks. Airbrushed finish. Fabulous!

  73. Mich says:

    I thought about taking a segway tour around Boston when I was there last month but decided against it. With my luck I would have ended up in the harbor.

  74. Laurinha says:

    I’ll redo my highlights next month….. counting days……
    Hv a great weekend!

  75. tiffany says:

    I LOVE marshmellows in my hot chocolate thanks :)

  77. Ling says:

    Tried out a new lipstick from milani and i love it!

  78. Tina says:

    I love all shades of nail polish but light shades such as nudes and pinks tend to go with a variety of outfits. For this reason, I wear them more often.

  79. Claudia Davis says:

    I use MakeUp Forever Foundation and have always used my fingers for it. Its not the most sanitary but it gives me the best coverage and finish.

  80. Erin says:

    I don’t really know what to say. My biggest accomplishment this week has been working on the anime convention I help out with. I like most colors of nail polish, it just depends on what color I am in the mood for at the time.

  81. Jennifer says:

    I’ve never ridden a Segway, even though the inventor, Dean Kamen, has his company HQ in the city where I live. Shame on me!!

  82. Monica says:

    I love using a damp beauty blender to apply foundation. Thanks for the giveaway!

  83. ReneeP says:

  84. Gail says:

    My cat will not quit following me today – Love me so much – now off to fry some eggplant

  85. I usually apply your foundation with fingers, dot it all over the face and then with stippling brush.. blend it in!! :)

  86. Icequeen81 says:

    Love dark nail polish, is my only way.

    And I love marshmallows and hot chocolate, separate and together.

  87. Irene says:

    I always apply my foundation with fingers! I use brushes for anything els, but for liquids, I somehow find it dirty.

  88. Melissa says:

    I love lighter nail polish, although I havent worn any in weeks. I really should do my nails this weekend.

  98. stephanie says:

  99. Via says:

    I find that applying my foundation with a wet sponge provides the most natural and semi-dewy finish, without applying too much product.

  100. Fatima M says:

    I love both bright and dark color polishes! If Ihave a dark color on my toes, I’ll go for a lighter color on hands and vice versa. I also end up doing a skittles mani a lot of the time. This usuually happens when I get a bunch or new polishes, and can’t wait to try them out. :)

  101. Brooke says:

    My choices in nail polish wax and wane with the seasons. Lately, I’ve been obsessed with taupe and oxblood polish!

  115. Lyndag says:

    no i’ve never rode a segway. looks interesting though!

  116. Jennifer Rivera says:

  117. Amber says:

    I apply my foundation with a brush usually! Also use the original beauty blender sometimes! X

    Comment? Here’s my comment. I blame you Karen! Yes, you! You MADE me order Tom Ford’s She Wolf trio. It is ALLLL your fault and I blame you. Totally. I’m sure I will love it but it still is your fault. LOL! Thank you for making me do it!

  145. Jolie K. says:

    I’m a big fan of having marshmallow in my hot chocolate. However, I haaaate how I eat them all before being close to finishing my drink!

  147. Gabriela says:

    How do you usually apply your foundation — technique, brush, fingers, sponge?— I apply my foundation with a brush but I have been meaning to buy and use a sponge

  148. Kate & Zena says:

    Biggest accomplishment is being awake before 7 pm. HA HA HA HA HA!!!!

  149. GPatrick says:

    To make some extra money, I’ve started tutoring in a subject difficult for any art-birds to understand, or to just scrape by passing at – Algebra. Math in general. It’s that right brain, left brain struggle. Well I started helping a friend and with a days’ energy understanding the stuff myself, my friend was able to get an 80 on her first test. That felt like an accomplishment!

  150. Sherry says:

    Hi Karen!! My absolute favorite nude lip product is MAC’s Modesty Cremesheen Lipstick. I love it!! Thanks for another giveaway!!

  151. Ellen says:

    - All dark nail polish, all the time. Currently wearing a burgundy, can’t wait to wear the dark blues, greens, and greys of the season!
    - Just bought Armani Rouge Ecstasy in Androgino (103), and I think it’s the perfect nude for my fair skin!
    - Always yes to marshmallow, especially if they’re the stale little ones in the Swiss Miss packets

  152. lesleyk says:

    Fave nude lippie is Dior Addict Extreme Incognito, which is just this side of corpse lips on me. I also like Urban Decay Naked for a rosier nude, Buxom Sidney and Nars Bilbao (warmer). And last night we had Peruvian food for our last night in Key West. So, so good.

  153. MLV says:

    I need to get all dollied up when I see Pharrell! Oh wait… that was today?

  155. Amy B. says:

    Hi!

    Since its fall, I’m loving darker colors, especially dark/olive greens such as Zoya Hunter. I also prefer creams vs. metallic.

  156. Kathy M. says:

    Last night’s dinner was homemade potato & broccoli soup, with a side of medium-sized roasted colored peppers stuffed with a mixture of goat cheese/crushed almonds/garlic.

  157. Kim says:

    Im wearing OPI warm and fozzie on my nails….the perfect sparkly bronze for fall.

  158. stacy s says:

    Mmmm. Pumpkin lattes. Spiced Apple cider. Fall will be here before you know it.

  159. onegreatsmile says:

    i go back and forth between a flat brush, a stippling brush and my fingers to put on foundation. Fingers give heavy coverage, flat brush is medium but seamless and stippling is sheer but thorough. Depends on my mood — and my SKIN!!

  160. Dora J Crow says:

    I love nail polish! My faves are bright shiny full of gleam. Purples, bright blues, raucous reds & passionate pinks all are gorgeous! I also like dark blackish blues & greens & purples too when all my nails break off! I HATE nudes! They look like skin! Ack!

  161. Jennifer Pham says:

    I like brighter colors, whether they are on the lighter side or the darker side of the spectrum!

  162. Joy Derfuss says:

    I prefer dark nail polish. It looks better on me.

  163. Michelle says:

    Hi Karen!

    Last night I celebrated my 10th wedding anniversary by having dinner at Black Angus steak house. I got the Filet Minon, steamed broccoli, & a side salad. I was trying to be healthy but that got ruined when my husband decided to order loaded potato skins for an app. & we shared upside down peach cake for desert lol. Making up for it today though! Enjoy the rest of your weekend =)

  164. Grettel fritz says:

    Hi Karen! I looooove marshmallows in my hot chocolate and now I’m craving some thanks to you haha have a great weekend!

  167. Katrina says:

    My plan for tonight is to chop my nails off and paint them a nice dark color because it’s fall here in Michigan!

  168. noon says:

    nude lip love=rimmel’s show off/apocalypse lip laquer in nude eclipse. also mac’s pro longwear lip pencil in nice n spicy isn’t quite nude but i love it none the less.

  169. Amy says:

    I tend to use light (or medium?) colored polishes more, but I think this fall/winter I’m going to try to start using more vampy, darker colors!

  171. Rebecca Cash says:

    I usually apply foundation with a brush but sometimes use my beauty blender.

  172. Vanessa Warda says:

    I bought a Sonia Kashuk makeup case after reading your review! Unfortunately I couldn’t find the one you reviewed at Target here in Canada, but I love it all the same :)

  173. Krystle says:

    I’ve been loving the Too Faced La Creme lipsticks!!! :-)

  174. Carl L Smith Jr says:

    My Wife’s birthday is in a few weeks so I have been trying to win stuff I know she would like. It’s been interesting, entertaining, and educational for me to read Women’s blogs in my spare time instead of my usual fishing blogs. I will now have to be careful to not blurt out tips to her when she is applying her make up. The things we do for Love !

  175. barbs says:

    there is one thing i simply cannot understand: nude lipstick.
    fair enough, it looks great on some people, and it is perfect with a certain makeup but do we actually need 6 ‘different’ shades of nude lips?

  176. Asleif says:

    Oh, Karen! If you need any hair inspiration, there’s a site called bangstyle dot com, it’s like pinterest for hair ^^, it may give you some more options to choose from

  177. chari says:

    I have a makeup brush, but usually i use my fingers!

  178. Jody says:

    I generally prefer darker polish but can do brights for summer.

  179. rosie says:

    I love dark polish.
    I use my fingers for everything except powder to set everything. I love MUFE high def loose powder.
    And I don’t like marshmallows. Except the lucky charms ones, but they really don’t count. Although those might be good in cocoa.
    xoxo Karen! Have a happy Sunday

  180. Kay says:

    I’m obsessed with nude lips but my favorite has got to be Clinique’s Curviest Caramel. It’s especially lovely in the fall :)

  181. Lori P says:

    Darker nail polish for sure! I had my nails done today and I’m wearing Muir Muir on the Wall from OPI.

  182. Emilee says:

    I love all my nail polish equally, but right now I’m loving the dark colors!

  183. Laura says:

    Fingers for foundation and YSL Nude Beige (I think?) for nude lipstick!

  184. Irene says:

    I think that dark colour would suit you well, but, at the same time, lighter hair adds so much light to your face! Hair stuff is so complicated >.<
    Oh, finally UD Revolution lipsticks arrived in my country, I can't wait to go swatching them tomorrow, I'm in love with them since I saw them here! ^-^
    Have a nice rest-of-the-weekend!

  185. ShannoninBC says:

    For foundation, I usually apply with a Real Techniques buffing brush, then use a Beauty Blender to make sure it’s completely blended.

  195. Mardi says:

    I used fingers to apply my foundation for years but I now use a Sigma F80 flat top synthetic kabuki. It is amazing the difference, I’ll never go back to fingers.

  196. Picco says:

    i luuuuuuuv marshmallows in my hot chocolate. I always buy the kind that brings the mini marshmallows.

    Welp…I had braised kale and sweet potatoes washed down with lots of water. Yum!

  202. Wendy Lange says:

    I like light polish on my fingernails and darker on my toes. I use a sponge to apply my foundation. I have never ridden a Segway. Biggest accomplishment this week was finally getting over a cold. I had lasagne for dinner last night. I like marshmallow in my hot chocolate but also like whipped cream and Peppermint Schnapps too!

    I use the beauty blender most often :)

    Also, I like both dark polish and light polish, it just depends on the occasion and the nail shape!
    I am in LOVE with marshmallows in my hot chocolate! Marshmallows in anything really hehe!

    Thank you for holding this giveaway religiously! I hope I win, and also good luck to everyone :)

  215. MelodyJ says:

    I like all nail colors even clear. I love marshmallows in hot chocolate.

  216. Maggie says:

    A Segway?! That’s what they’re called? I wonder if those are as fun as they look….

    Not completely nude–more like a “my lips but better” lippie: Korres Mango Butter Lipstick in 25 Natural Rose. Made me believe in lipstick again–does not dry out lips.

  217. Isabelle says:

    I’ve never tried a Segway but I’ve noticed the fairies in the Disneyland parade to ride on Segways! How cool is that!

  218. Chanelle (C.M.) says:

    I prefer ALL THE POLISHES!

    have a nice day thank you

  226. Kiran says:

    I always use my fingers to apply my TM

  227. Natalie says:

    I love darker shades in the fall. It just adds to the whole Fall, romance, drama thing I love so much.

  228. Rosa says:

    I love dark and light nail polish. But in the fall, I usually wear the deep, dark colors.

  229. Sarah Benchamin says:

    I love darker polishes for the fall. Especially like burgundy type deep colors.

  230. Andria Lindsay says:

    I use a brush for foundation. However I have recently discovered that tattoo cover up works well for under eye coverage and since its so thick, I use a beauty blender sponge to blend. :)

  231. Caitlin M says:

    I like both light and dark nail polish, although I use darker colors in the fall.

  232. Barb S. says:

    Karen,
    hi! My favorite nail polish colors are greens and blues, but I usually wear them on my toenails! I’ve worn black nail polish at least 3 times in the past two years.

  233. Emily says:

    Foundation brush FTW!

  234. Melanie says:

    I religiously use bareminerals original foundation. The mineral foundation brush from Sephora is by far the best brush I’ve used to apply it!

  235. Sylvia says:

    Happy Sunday! It’s beautiful here in Illinois, sunny and cool. I’m catching up on Rookie Blue which hanging out with the fuzzies, and until I get cracking with the dusting and vacuuming. I’m also checking out the Becca Rose Gold pressed shimmering skin perfector that Sephora has, can’t find a picture though.

  236. mini says:

    Fingers for a natural finish with foundation!

  237. Liz says:

    I like marshmallows in my hot chocolate

  238. BB says:

    I use BB cream sometimes and use my hands.

  239. Amy says:

    Chocolatey brown is such a great hair color. Getting my hair done in 2 weeks and I can’t wait. It’s out of control long now :/

  240. MK says:

    I love using the real techniques flat top buffing brush to apply my foundation. It gives a great finish!

  241. marlene says:

    Was so disappointed a few weeks ago. My absolutely favorite nude lippy was discontinued. It a brand here in Canada called Caryl Baker. The color was Angelica. So pretty. Why do they discontinue things :(

  242. Ann says:

    I made shrimp scampi last night.

  243. Lori B says:

    I love all kinds of nail polishes,dark and light. My neighbor brought me over dinner last night as I wasn’t feeling well.

  244. Miki says:

    Dark nail polish all the way. Especially gunmetal-type shades.

  245. Rene Groyer (@ReneGroyer) says:

    I love marshmallows in my Milo,that’s what we have in South Africa instead of hot chocolate.Its so delicious

  246. Petunia says:

    Fall always makes me think of hiking. Maybe it’s time for new hiking boots?

  247. TrippyPixie says:

    I always apply my foundation with a brush — it looks much better than when I used to use a disposable latex sponge. I have absolutely no problem sticking my fingers into products that come in a jar, but I just can’t put foundation on with my fingers. I can’t do it! I’ve recently been trying a BeautyBlender-type sponge, but I’m not really loving it. Perhaps I need to get my application technique down.

  248. i usually prefer light colored nail polish

  249. Jamie Bello says:

    I love nude polishes in the summer especially when my skin is tan!

  250. Allison says:

    I’m trying to resist the Urban Decay Black Market eyeliner set. IT’S NOT WORKING.

  251. Katie Mulcahy says:

    My favorite nude lip products of the moment- MAC Velvet Teddy, L’Oreal Fairest Nude and Clarins Nude Rose

  257. elle says:

    Really excited for fall~!

  258. Michelle M says:

    I look forward to seeing your hair. I have an appointment for color in a few weeks. I haven’t had it colored in the salon in years. But I’m in desperate need. I keep telling my hubby I’m much to young to be a “silver fox” lol ;)

  259. Lynn says:

    I love both dark and light polishes…but i do lean towards dark colors in general more. i prefer earth tone colors in both light and dark shade, but i know that even tho i like certain colors/shades, they don’t all look good with my skin tone.

  260. Katty says:

    Marshmallows in hot chocolate is a no, but I love whipped cream!

  261. valerie says:

    wouldn’t touch a marshmallow with a 10 foot pole, but give me a cup of hot chocolate with a gingerbread cookie and i’m a happy lady!

  262. Gabi says:

    I have a really unhealthy obsession with sephora… a gift card would be absolutely AMAZING!!

  263. christine says:

    I have dark colors on my toes year round. I rarely paint my fingernails but if I do I use a nude color because I leave chipped polish on way too long.

  264. I apply my foundation with a sponge.

    I actually love buffing my nails instead of painting them , I love how it looks so simple but elegant! And marshmallows in hot chocolate? The more the better!!

  270. Cristina Regular says:

    My current fave Nude lipstick is the Hourglass Femme Rouge in #5 and #6!

  275. Barbara says:

    Do you know the joke about the man who was praying and praying to god about winning the lottery. Finally after a few years god couldn’t stand it and said to the man – first you have to try and play to be able to win.
    In same way, I was like that man. I used to say – everybody wins something but not I. Of course not I, because I’ve never try to win anything. So I’m trying this time:)

  276. Jessy W says:

  279. Ivy says:

    I’ve had issues & reactions with my skin for years, but I’ve learned a lot, changed how I shop, & I am finally able to get obsessed with makeup. It’s an amazing way to feel girly & beautiful, & I luv it. :)

  280. Danielle F says:

    9 times out of 10 I use a brush to apply foundation. There are a select few that I feel apply better with warm hands, the real techniques expert face brush is my every day tool.

  281. Emily says:

    I like light and dark nail polish but tend to vary them with the seasons.

  282. Shawn Marshall says:

    Hey everyone! I always like to switch it up so I enjoy both light and dark nail polish colors – sometimes I wear them at the same time depending on my mood. Hey…why choose is you don’t have too, right!? One of the reasons why I love that nail creativity/art is so “in” and “of the moment”…I love that it invites an anything goes/whatever strikes your mood attitude :). Nails should be fun!

  283. Ami says:

    My boyfriend doesn’t like it when I cut my hair either!
    But Karen I want you to know I love love love your blog. I get so tired of seeing these mommy blogs everywhere that usually do the nail polish reviews. It’s nice to see a cat lady without kids I can relate to! (nothing against the moms, of course, I just can’t relate!)

  291. Wendy says:

    I love, love, love dark polishes!

  292. Kay says:

    I haven’t been on a Segway before and knowing how clumsy I can be at times, I don’t think I should ever be on one.

  293. Sandra Walter says:

    My favorite nude lip color was beige shine by givenchy, unfortunately it was discontinued at sephora!

  294. Danielle says:

    I use a brush for foundation – fingers always icks me out.

  295. Barbie says:

    I have been applying my foundation with my mac sponge it makes my foundation look naturally and my skin looks less dry!

  307. Elsa says:

    I prefer dark nail polish :) I had a delicious baked cod with cherry tomatoes and chives. It was Yummy :)

  308. Lisa says:

    Riding a Segway is so fun! I like dark polishes but I wear light ones most of the time because my fingers are short and stubby.

  309. Nicky says:

    There are so many products I want to try, only if they were in my budget :D

  310. joanne darrell says:

  313. Lisa H. says:

    Marshmallows are a must in hot chocolate! I like to put two of the regular sized ones in my cup. I also add in a scoop of Coffeemate to make the hot chocolate richer and creamier. Yum!

  314. Tania says:

    My favorite nude lip product is the Peach Maybelline Baby Lips. It doesn’t make my teeth all yellow looking nor does it wash me out.

  315. Kim says:

    I hope you had a great weekend and are happy with your hair! :) We had a soccer tourney on Saturday and hiked a mountain on Sunday. Fall is a great time of year in these parts. Btw, my roots will be done on Thursday, thankfully!

  316. Ruchita says:

    I love marshmallows and whipped cream on my hot chocolate!

  317. Liz says:

    I use powder foundation pretty much all the time. A while back, I bought the IT cosmetics version on QVC and it cam ewith a beautiful dense flat topped brushe for application. I love that brush! It doesn’t matter what foundation I’m wearing that day (Nyx, IT, Laura Gellar, Bobbi, etc), this brush makes applying and buffing easy. I need a backup!

  318. Majick says:

    I do not like marshmallows in my hot chocolate BUT, last night I did have 3 huge ones for dinner. ;-)

  319. Jenna Parsons says:

    I made Orange Chicken in the slow cooker last night

    I like light and dark polishes, but for fall I prefer dark or nude tones.

  322. Katherine says:

    For dinner last night, I had roasted potatoes and carrots with herbed lentils.

  326. Anhchi Nguyen says:

    I love marshmallows,on hot chocolate, on coffee, or by itself…

  327. Trude says:

    Ever since I started applying my foundation with Sigma’s angled kabuki brush, I don’t know what the heck I was doing with my life before. :) It’s awesome!

  328. Hollie says:

    I have been reading your blog for a couple of years now, and I absolutely love your posts when it comes to swatches because you take really clear pictures ^_^

  329. sylvia says:

    I’m having such a hard time letting go of summer nail polish colors!

  338. Joni says:

    Hi karen! Lately I’ve been using Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream and I apply it with my fingers. Or I use Lioele Beyond the solution BB crean and also apply with my fingers.

  339. Emily Rehse says:

    I have never ridden a Segway, but a few years back someone rented one and was going around as Paul Blart the Mall Cop for Halloween! It was hilarious!!!

  340. Divya says:

    Hey, I thought I just ran out of time for the giveaway… thank god :D

  341. Carol B says:

    I really hate the cold but I love the Fall fashions, foods & colors.

  342. JennC says:

    I enjoy this blog! On a different note, I MUST have marshmallows in my hot chocolate. I enjoy sipping on it with my dark polish. Pinky up style :)

  343. sarah says:

    cant wait for riri hearts!

  344. Nadia says:

    Do you prefer lighter or darker nail polishes (or both)?
    I like both, depends on my mood. I always hate when someone picks the same colors but different shades over and over again. My mother in law just picks a different shade of pink each time or just red. Live a little!

    How do you usually apply your foundation — technique, brush, fingers, sponge?
    I don’t wear foundation. But if I win this gift card I’m going to go buy some. But when I wear BB cream I use my fingers. I find the heat from your fingers helps the make up absorb better.

    Have you ever ridden a Segway?
    NO! But want to, they seem fun.

    What did you have for dinner last night?
    Chili with corn bread.

    Do you like marshmallows in your hot chocolate?
    Of course and whipped cream

  345. Rina says:

    I don’t like marshmellows in my hot chocolate. Just lots of hot chocolate-y goodness as I browse beauty blogs….

  346. Rina says:

    I just like chocolate in my hot chocolate :)

  347. Rachel says:

    Love, love, love applying liquid foundation with a beauty blender type sponge. Fool proof which is perfect for me! Hahaha. 💁😄😉😜😳😊

    I am so excited it is finally fall. I’ve been preparing since the beginning of August. So happy it is finally time to break out the boots, sweaters, and scarves, fall makeup, apple cider, fall scented candles from Bath and Body Works, Halloween, and Thanksgiving. Ahhh! I’m currently burning Leaves from Bath and Body Works and wishing it was cold enough to light my fireplace and wear fuzzy socks.

    It’s weird, I love light and dark polishes! I don’t care for much in between, except in the Summer :)

    Hi,can’t believe I am just now finding this blog, as I am a makeup/sephora/drugstore cosmetics junkie! I love every type of nail polish from nudes to darks to nail art!I also love foundation and I like to apply mine w/fingers but use a brush for concealer, yet my sister must use a sponge:) Thanks for the chance to enter:nice giveaway^_^

  361. Tina says:

    I prefer dark nail polish. It looks nice on my tan skin tone :)

    I always apply my Missha BB cream with my fingers…which may explain why I can never seem to complete a full face look in under an hour. :-P Perfectionism is hard. Then again, one has to add in blending one’s eyeshadow just so, waiting for one’s foundation to set, and the incredibly difficult game of exactly how much contour is too much or too little. Ah well, maybe I’ll develop a five minute face someday…someday…

  363. Erica Cho says:

    I usually use my fingers to apply foundation but I have been looking into a sponge. I think the Beauty Blender is too expensive so I bought Models Own, which looks very similar.

  364. Veronica says:

    I usually just wear tinted moisturizer and use my fingers to apply. But on the rare occasion that I bust out “real” foundation, I use a sponge to apply. I can never get brushes to work right!

  365. Angela says:

    I usually use fingers to apply product mainly because I am a bit too lazy to clean brushes constantly

  366. I’m pale but LOVE dark nail polish!

    I also splurge on beauty blender sponges for my foundation. Expensive but worth it! Looking for a good dupe though!

    Today i went to the dentist with a full face of makeup on and when I came out I looked like i had wet my hands and then rubbed them all of my face :’(. Lesson learned. Next time I’ll make sure I take my makeup off before I go there…

  371. AmyD says:

    i need a portable base to carry with me when i don’t have time to apply makeup before work – i’m going to give the mac bb cream compact a whirl!

    The way I make hot chocolate, it seems like i’ve added some hot chocolate on my marshmallows haha
