A Makeup and Beauty Blog Sephora Gift Card Giveaway

A Makeup and Beauty Blog Giveaway!

Good morning, glory. 🙂 I hope you slept well. Did you do anything interesting or fun last night?


El Hub and I drove down to Blue Barn in Corte Madera, and I got that salad I like (with the grilled shrimp and avocado). Then we just tooled around the mall until closing.

It was such a comfortable night outside, all warm with a beautiful coral and pink sunset, so it was nice to just walk around.

There’s an REI down there, so we walked in to look at bikes, and I found a cute blue one with flowers painted on it and tassels on the handlebars and a basket on the front that would have been perfect for kittens, but it was like $700!

Seriously, when did cute bicycles get so expensive?

In other news, this was a big week for my addiction to makeup. 🙂 I hope you enjoyed the MAC Maleficent and Alluring Aquatic coverage. I had a total blast doing those posts.

Good luck in this weekend’s Sephora giveaway. Talk to you soon.

  11. Jessie C. says:

    I don’t know how to waterski

  12. Elena says:

    My fave two eye shadow look at the moment is Urban Decay’s Sin and Snakebite. Super easy. I apply Sin all over the lid and upwards to my brow bone then Snakebite on the lid and blend. Both are neutral so it is an easy on the go look without too much effort!

  13. Jennifer Pham says:

    I do have a bike, and it’s purple!

  14. Maggie says:

    Spring cleaning and beautiful weather. Can’t ask for a better weekend!

  15. Allison says:

    I wear my hair up every work day because I’m a nurse and can’t stand to have it hanging around and touching me while I’m taking care of patients! “Up” isn’t fancy, though — twisted up in a clip with my curls piled up on top….

  16. Julie says:

    I don’t have a bicycle, but I’ve always wanted a Pashley Princess Sovereign bicycle. I have dreams of cycling around with my cat, Millie, in the basket!

  17. Icequeen81 says:

    detrivore Ossuary I a kind of skin color ( indi make uo)
    and catrice papaya dont preach a orange.

    The skin color to cover the entire lid and under the brow , and the light orange for a kind of higlight

  18. Nikia says:

    When is comes to taking pictures I hate it! I mean Idk if it’s the lighting which it probably is. I know not every picture is going to be a glamore shot, but it’s is ridiculous. Until I see a great one, I will start taking more pics! Lol..

  19. Rachel says:

    I wear my hair up all the time!

  20. MJ says:

    Hey Girl! Thanks for posting the Alluring Aquatic collection. I am loving the shadows especially and I loved the look that you created!

    My favorite lashes are by Red Cherry (#46)… inexpensive, really comfortable to wear and they look good!

    I only put my hair up when I’m sleeping because I don’t want it near my face. During the day when I’m out, I leave it down because my ears are a little mousy lol

  27. Anastasiya says:

    I do not have a bike 🙁

    No, I don’t have a bike.

  30. Chelsey says:

    I’m wearing my hair up right now!

  31. Megan says:

    Last time I wore my hair up was yesterday.

  32. sienna says:

    i’ve never worn false eyelashes!

  33. Lisa says:

    When it comes to taking pictures its really important when they say find your light, I also try to angle my face which to me is the most flattering. Straight forward is a no no! 😉


  34. Marisa Kramer says:

    My favorite eyeshadow probably ever is Victoria’s Secret “Provocateur”. When I realized how low my first pan is, I regretted not picking up more than one extra- then again, I didn’t know they were going to discontinue their professional makeup line in February. Shame, really; they were the best. That, with a catlike line of Mary Kay “Espresso” (their best eyeshadow, imho) is my simplest look and also my favorite.

  35. sylvia says:

    Wearing my hair up right now!

  43. Sabrina says:

    I love wearing my hair up in a messy bun especially during summer since the heat & humidity here in Hawaii can get a little bit unbearable.

  44. BooBooNinja says:

    I have a pink road bike. Sounds so girlie, but the pink wasn’t intentional.

  45. Diana says:

    If I win I’ll finally get that hourglass blush that has been haunting me 🙂
    P.S. I don’t know how to ride a bike.

  46. Kayte CookWatts says:

    My favorite eyeshadow combo is a little boring,but it works for me. A Mac nude cream shadow followed by a Dior nude powder shadow. It makes me look awake, but not made up. I do switch it up with bolder choices sometimes, like a rich metallic or a bright pink sometimes which is fun. I used to go total drag queen and use sliver glitter stage makeup on my eyes, but I haven’t done that in years.

  47. I wear my hair up nearly every day in this heat!

    Do you have a bicycle? If so what does it look like?
    It’s a blue, black and yellow bike but I don’t use it and my dog ate one of the pedals.

    Complete this sentence: when it comes to taking pictures…
    You have to do your best pose.

    When was the last time you wore your hair up?
    Does it counts when I use the hair dryer and straighten it a little to get a wavy pompadour?

  67. Jessie says:

    For a really simple 2-shadow eye look, I’ve been using Maybelline color tattoo in Bad to the Bronze as a base with Covergirl Tapestry Taupe on top

  68. Lisa's says:

    I’m suffering from spring allergies right now, it’s horrible.

  91. Sherry says:

    Hi Karen!! I just wore my hair up this morning. In fact, on most days I pin it up with an octopus clip, and then let it down a few hours later. Just give me some glasses, and I could pass for a librarian. LOL!! By the way, that Nude lip pencil from Hourglass looks really good against your complexion. Great color for you!! Love it!!

  92. gina says:

    I have an unhealthy obsession with sephora right now!! I have my first consultation there next weekend in Novato, so excited. I’d use the heck out of a gift card

  93. olivia says:

    i’m really loving peachy mattes with brown shimmers, especially when they’re gold toned. they work really well with my fair skin!

  94. Aury says:

    I haven’t gotten to wear my hair up much in a long time. I cut it short, and now that I’m growing it out, I can just barely fit it into a ponytail. I can’t wait til it’s long and I can wear it in a poofy bun again!

  95. Elie Anne says:

    My favorites false lashes are from Make Up For Ever!
    I am in love with the individuals (#9) 🙂

    My best friend from college was named Karen…we live far apart now and I miss her but you are my best bloggy friend. Thanks for doing a great job with the new MAC collection. My wallet will be sad come May 15.

  99. pauline says:

    I wear my hair up pretty much everyday #momlife.

  100. Lorraine says:

  101. lilia says:

    I am wearing my hair up right now 🙂

  102. Kate G says:

    I used to use the Ardell 120 Demi’s. I used to use them while cocktail waitressing, they served me well. I did have a bike, and I had to leave it behind in a stressful move as a teenager. So sad, I saved up for months for it.

  103. Laurinha says:

    I love to use my hair up…… just did it today!!

  104. Jen K says:

    I don’t currently own a bike. Although I did train for the Seattle to Portland race with my dad – which we didn’t end up being able to compete in due to an event conflict. Had to re-sell our entry tickets.

    I really prefer to run, walk or hike for my outdoor exercise these days.

    And, a tip – if any of you ladies like to wear your hair up, you’ll have to try Goodie spin pins. They are fantastic for making a quick bun.

  105. Bunny says:

    My Mom sold my bike when I moved, who knows if I’ll ever get another one. That old one was so heavy and cheaply made, so it would probably be better to have a different one.

  106. Joanna says:

    I love Velour doll me up lashes.

  107. Mandy says:

    Maleficent looks amazing & the MAC collection for is beautiful! I’m so excited for it to come out here in Australia!

    When it comes to taking pictures, the most important thing is to have it represent a moment you want to remember. Be it a place, an event or a thought.

  160. Isabel V says:

    When it comes to taking pictures…I prefer candid shots! I’d much rather see how everyone was actually standing or acting when the photo was taken than have them pose for a shot. I feel it better captures the memory and vibe of that particular moment.

  161. Berry says:

    When it comes to taking pictures, I’m never in them. I’ve always been the photographer in the family.

  162. Emily B says:

    I loved your posts about the MAC Maleficent and Alluring Aquatic, it definitely helps me make the decision on what to buy when they’re released. I hope you’ll be posting coverage on the Lorde collection too before it’s released. 🙂

    Made leche flan today!

  164. Cez says:

    The two eyeshadows I’ve been loving lately mixed together are MAC’s Coppering and Expensive Pink, they’re fun by themselves but together they just SCREAM SUMMERTIME!!!! I just mix ’em up on my brush, apply them to my lid, and blend the hell out of it to my crease. It’s so fun w/ the right amount of brightness!! 😀

  165. Puri says:

    When I take pictures, I kind of turn into a perfectionist. That, or I just take pictures of every meal I eat, lol!

  168. Nati says:

    Hi Karen, that sounds like a lovely evening with your hubby! I had a wonderful weekend so far. An old friend of mine came to visit me after not seeing each other for 10 years! that is since I left my home country. She has a beautiful 4 months old baby girl. It was a lovely evening and they stay for the night. They have bought an apartment in Paris (that’s 4 hours in TGV from here) so we will see each other much more frequently from now on!! That was nice

  169. Donna Pruitt says:

    Had a great dinner out with friends who came into town unexpectedly this weekend! My hair has been short for the last twenty years or so, so that leaves out putting it up, and my bike is blue but has a flat tire that I keep forgetting to replace.

  170. Casey says:

    I’m getting married in September!!

    I love to waterski and would love to have a cosmopolitan! 🙂

  172. Wayne says:

    Will it ever warm up?

  173. Mardi says:

    It’s turned incredibly cold here (I’m in Australia) so I think winter is not far away. I have my snuggle rug over my knees and for some reason it’s a cat magnet. I have seven cats – I had eight but my oldest cat died last week 🙁 He was old and unwell but he was lucky to die in the sun in my husband’s arms at home, rather than after being injected by a vet. In the end it was quick and he had a long, good life. He would have been 17 in a few months. Farewell Maxie!

  174. Cecilia says:

    I have her hair, I have no bike =(, just a look I wore false eyelashes

  175. Natalie Brown says:

    Hello! It sounds like you had such a lovely evening! My favorite two eye shadow look would be brown and champagne. I wear my hair up all the time. I’m a pony-tail kinda girly. lol Thank-you!!

  176. Shana says:

    First time commenting on anything although I’ve been an avid reader for awhile! My random question is…..how do you think ELF makes such great products for so cheap? It’s mindblowing!

  177. sarah rene says:

    I would love to win a Sephora gift card. So many things I’d like to purchase from there. I could shop in that store for hours! Lol

  178. Liz says:

    I actually never learned how to ride a bike and I’m in my 30s!

  179. Carrie says:

    Would love to wear my hair up but my hair is so short!!!

  180. Lulubelle says:

    I have a tattered bike that resides in my shed. It got used a lot when I was in grad school, as parking on campus was pretty sketchy. Since then, not so much…..

  181. When I was in highschool and in college I went to school by bike pretty much every day, but then it went downhill (no pun intended) with my cycling… I actually just left my bike behind when I moved from one appartment to another at one point, lol, because I didn’t use it anyway.

    I have an old banana seat bike that I still own, so comfy to ride.

  195. monica says:

    #4’s or #36’s from MAC are my fave falsies

  196. Sylvia says:

    I have just discovered Scandal and am afraid I might not get much done today!

  197. Katrina says:

    I scrunch my hair and put it up and everyone at work calls it an updo – it’s just lazy day hair to me.

  198. dani says:

    I have hip length hair I wear up all the time. I work in a lab, it would be no good to get nasty chemicals in it. My favorite way to wear it it in a crown braid, or two braids wrapped around my head with a soft jersey headband wrapped around them, so the loops of the braids show in back. It’s perfect for dirty lazy hair days, which happen often as an overworked grad student.

  199. Christina says:

    I wore my hair up on Friday since I really needed to wash it haha. Then I dyed it yesterday :). I’ll try not to wear it up for a bit.
    Hopefully I succeed as I wear it up way too often.

  200. Samantha M says:

    I’ve been wearing my hair up a lot lately! I guess i’ve been getting slightly lazy haha. Thanks for the chance to win xx

  201. Emily says:

    As a busy mom of two, the only time I seem to wear my hair up anymore is in a pony tail!

  202. Ann says:

    I ear my hair up all the time since I have hot flashes and I love to garden!

  203. maya says:

    Im still looking for my dream bike, i want something simple that i can ride around on in summer evenings, cute but not too cute.

  204. Deborah says:

    That salad sounds good! 😀

  205. Joey says:

    I don’t have a bike right now…but next year I’m aiming to get a cruiser!

  206. Cindy says:

    My hair is up right now, but I wouldn’t leave the house like that! LOL!

  207. Jasmine P says:

    The first and only time I tried to water ski, I failed miserably! I think I might try again in the future!

  208. Candice C. says:

    I’m wearing my hair up today! It’s in the ‘Pretty Dirty Princess Bun’ style that I saw on LeighAnnSays on YouTube.

  209. Euphan says:

    Probably going to sound really smug but it was my first proper bike so had to be special – it’s a cream Pashley Britannia and it’s great!

  210. Ada says:

    I have a very sturdy brown bike, which I’m passing on to my son this year. He’s outgrown his own bike.

  211. Madeline Richmond says:

    My favorite two-shadow look at the moment is Stila’s Kitten on my lid and brow bone with MAC’s Woodwinked in the crease

  212. Kalli Melia says:

    I’m trying to make meringues for the first time and I really need to get my mind off them to slowly bake in peace.

  213. Jasmin says:

    The last time I wore my hair up was probably when I was around 15 cause that’s when I cut it all off. I’m 23 now and that one short period last year when I thought it would be fun to grow it out doesn’t really count. It wasn’t as fun as I thought 😉 Just when it started to touch my shoulders for the first time in years, I went back to my pixie cut. Still loving it! No regrets 🙂

  214. Amber says:

    I appreciate you do this giveaway every week Karen! Hoping to win! X

  216. Dominique says:

    Euh actually I don’t have a bike !

  217. anissa says:

    sometimes I can’t choose which prompt to answer … I don’t have a bicycle, but I would really love one of those “old fashioned” style schwinn bikes.
    I love to take pictures but wish I had a smaller, more compact camera because I don’t always have the big one with me so I miss out on great photos sometimes.
    And… My hair is in a ponytail right now, and it will be for the next five months, at least. LOL

  218. Sarah W says:

    I still have the same bike as when I was a teenager, a blue mountain bike.

    I don’t know how to waterski, but I’d love to learn!

  225. Molly says:

    Honestly I’m not sure I can ride a bike! It was really difficult for me as a child, and after a particularly nasty fall I was WAY too scared to get back on.

  226. Kendra says:

    I don’t have a bike, but if I did I would want a beach cruiser bike. They remind me of the old days and are so cute!

  227. Nataya says:

    when I was high school I had a mountain bike that I rode to graffiti event at my school. We had some colors of paint left and my bicyle was the next target. I came home with red, blue, turquois tires, stripey cover and a giant doodle of fishbone (I was called with a name of a fish).

  228. Jocelyn says:

    I’m wearing my hair up right now!

    I feel you on the bike. I want to get one and I can’t stomach paying for a good one right now, and I don’t know if I want to buy one on craigslist because so many of those are stolen.

  229. tothesunnyside says:

    Currently babysitting 4 kids which is lovely and a nightmare at the same time.

  230. Brenna says:

    Hey! I run a beauty blog/YouTube channel, and I’ve been obsessing lately over House of Lashes in Feline. They’re amazing, gorgeous falsies that give any look a huge boost. I can’t wait to try others in their line. Thanks for the chance!

  231. I loved your post on the new MAC brow products.

  232. Ida says:

    I have a Dahon bike that folds in half and which I wish I used more often. 🙂

    The last time I wore my hair up was this morning at the gym! It gets so hot with it down, and I can’t have it get all sweaty on my neck. Gross!

  234. Siobhan says:

    I really really hate to wear false eyelashes, I only wear them for fun events like halloween or theme parties!

  235. Lauren E. says:

    I dont have a bicycle, but have been shopping for one. I have runners knee so about the only exercise I can do now is bike riding

  252. Jenny Frank says:

    When it comes to taking pictures, I am always behind the camera. I am not a selfie kinda gal. 🙂

  253. Gina says:

    First off I have to apologize for not reading your blog like before, I was a loyal reader for so long and then I had 2 babies back to back….ya know how mommy hood takes up ALL of your time lol! Anyways I have been dying for a bike, a teal and white beach cruiser to be exact with a tan wicker basket! The prices of bicycles are seriously ridiculous but maybe if I save my pennies I can buy myself one to ride around Modesto and wish I lived near the beach lol!!!

  254. Maren says:

    I almost never wear more than 1 eye shadow at a time, but when I do, I like purple and pink.

  255. sherry says:

    wearing my hair up right now!

  256. Tiffany says:

    I baked cookies!!

  257. Natasha says:

    The last time I wore my hair up was… today, yesterday, the day before… when I try to wear my hair down and curly, it ends up looking like a hot, poofy mess, so I tend to not wear it down ever unless it’s straight which is very rare!
    Natasha recently posted … Packing Progress!

  258. Jen. says:

    I keep thinking of getting a bike, but… I can’t decide what I should get. I’ll have to look through the comments to get some suggestions!

  261. Kate Dotson says:

    my hair is up right now!

  262. Rebecca says:

    •Favorite false lashes? – Ardell Lashes 109.
    •Complete this sentence: when it comes to taking pictures…I am so on that with either my phone or my traditional SLR. I want a digital, but I’m waiting for that one until i save up my munnies.
    •What’s your favorite two-shadow eye look at the moment? – Maybelline Color Tattoo in Inked in Pink, followed up by UD Hustle from the Naked 1 palette in the crease to define the eye.
    •When was the last time you wore your hair up? – Today, actually. I’ve got it in a messy french twist because I think the AC at work is broken…

    No bike here, but I really want one!

  265. Anastasia says:

    My favorite false lashes are the Red Cherry Eyelashes. 🙂

  266. Maple says:

    When it comes to taking pictures… I’ve been known to take an annoyingly exorbitant amount of pictures at one time to get the right shot.

  267. CrystalDawn says:

    Oh goodness I usually wear my hair up in a messy hlf ponytail or bun except the last 2 days because once agian the pollen has laid me low..not even my regular allergie meds arnt worken:(

  269. Claire says:

    Would love a bike but no room for one really!

  270. Anne says:

    When taking pictures of people at formal events such as graduations, please be merciful. The graduates are standing in 93 degree heat and just really want to go to the ” after grad” party at the restaurant. 🙂 Take two really good ones of each group and then quit. Everyone will thank you, even the folks who didn’t graduate but sat through the four hour ceremony only to not hear or see ” their” graduate. 🙂

  277. Marisa says:

    I haven’t wore my hair up in ages.

    My husband and i have his and hers blue Huffy mountain bikes that we go through phases using; sometimes we’ll ride every day for a week, then we don’t use them for a few weeks… it’s fun, but i’m always so sore after. Guess we should be more consistent, lol!

    Hi karen, hope you had a great weekend. My favorite two shadow look right now is from theBalm nude tude palette. Sultry (reddy-brown) in the crease and Selfish (taupe) on the lid! I love this I could wear it all the time!

  291. Doreena says:

    Feliz Cinco de Mayo!

  292. Julie B. says:

    I have never worn false eyelashes but figured I should at least try it once and got some at a drugstore that I put away and never looked at again.

  293. Katherine says:

    I do have a bicycle – and I brought it out yesterday after a long hibernation. It is pale gold and I love it!

  294. Aida says:

    I hope you’ll have a great week!

  295. Majick says:

    Today is my 24th wedding anniversary. I need to win ’cause after this many years upkeep takes MORE PRODUCT! LMAO!

  296. Liz says:

    I had my hair in a ponytail pretty much continuously for the past 3 days while camping. With no showers available, it was pretty much the only choice.

  297. Janea M says:

    I wore my hair up pretty much the whole of last week, it was too hot to have it down.

    What’s your favorite two-shadow eye look at the moment? MAC Bamboo all over the lid and brow area + MAC Soft Brown in the crease and smudged into the lash lines

    When was the last time you wore your hair up? I wear my hair up all the time in a messy bun with a wide headband, but I’d love to learn how to do a proper Regency-style updo with little lace bands.

  304. Rachel says:

    The last time I wore my hair up is right now.

  305. Sarah says:

    I also wear my hair up in the chemistry lab where I work every day! Because dipping your hair into a vat of acid is usually not what you want.

  306. Jon says:

    Hi Karen! It will be my wife’s first Mother’s Day on Sunday and she loves Sephora. She had mentioned you do this awesome weekly giveaway so I wanted to surprise her and submit an entry. Thank you!

  307. TrippyPixie says:

    I have absolutely no idea how to waterski. I’m so darn klutzy that I wouldn’t trust myself doing that! I have been tubing, though, and that’s a lot of fun.

  308. Andrea Darst says:

    Our baby girl went to her last prom ever this weekend – I only cried 3 times!

  309. Kayvid says:

    Wearing my hair down right now since I get only one day of non-oily scalp after washing hair and I gotta utilize that…

  310. Jennifer M-K says:

    Complete this sentence: when it comes to taking pictures…I take way more than the average person (or so I’m told) at different angles to get the perfect picture. I like to take lots of nature pictures and the angle/lighting can make a big difference in how cool some of the shots are. Things also tend to look different on the camera screen as compared to on my computer so I take a lot of pictures and pick my favorites once I have them loaded on my laptop. I blame my pickyness on my genes (my grandpa and all of his brothers were professional photographers so I think I picked it up from their side.). I have some pretty amazing pictures because of my pickyness, though. I took 2 from my trip to Hawaii and had them blown up on canvas for my living room wall 🙂

  311. Emma Castillo says:

    Just came from getting my marriage license. Wedding is on 6/14/14.


    Omg this is really happening now!

  314. oomph. says:

    fave lashes? red cherry!

  315. Lynn says:

    Haven’t worn my hair up since last summer. Hope we actually GET a summer this year.

  316. Sherry says:

    My favorite pair of false lashes are the ardell demi wispies. They aren’t too dramatic and fit nicely on my eyes.

  317. Turquoise says:

    It has been awhile since I’ve entered any contests…everyone wants you to have Facebook and Instagram and Twitter…and I don’t. Mostly because I find it easier to live in the moment by actually being in it. Much easier and much more fulfilling than pulling out my phone, taking a picture, uploading the picture and having everyone comment, critique and taking the joy from the moment. I thank you for giving regular, life loving, memory holding people like me, a chance to enter! Have a good week!

  318. Jennifer says:

    I used to have a bike and I even had it on campus, but the tire blew. Then I got hit by a cyclist the next year and now have a permanent bump/bald spot on my skull, so no more bikes for this chicky. 🙁

  319. chibicheeks says:

    Ready for the weekend, but it’s only Monday ;_;

  320. Lindsey Lynn says:

    I have never waterskiied or worn false eyelashes! I’m not very brave. “)

  321. Stephanie says:

    When it comes to taking pictures I love taking selfies 🙂

  322. admmgz says:

    I wear my hair up either in a bun or ponytail daily b/c if I don’t, it makes my neck hurt & gives me a headache since it’s so coarse, thick & heavy…that’s kinda sad that my hair causes actual pain, huh? lol I wanna shave it but my family is totally against it- I think I might just come home one day w/ it already shaved 😉

  323. Jamie C. says:

    My Favorite 2 eyeshadow combo is the MAC Satin Taupe and Too Faced Chocolate Soleil matte bronzer in Milk Chocolate in the crease (yes, I use it as an eyeshadow)

  324. Thomas Murphy says:

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!
