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

A Makeup and Beauty Blog giveaway

Dolce & Gabbana summer 2014

Dolce & Gabbana summer 2014

You know when you’re too tired to cook and just want good food to magically appear in front of you? Yeah…that’s exactly how it was last night.


Good morning, glory! I hope you had a good week. Mine wasn’t bad at all, and any week that ends with pizza and a movie ends on a high note (unless either of those is terrible).

That’s what we did. We grabbed slices for dinner and then went to see Lucy, that new sci-fi flick with ScarJo and Morgan Freeman. She plays someone exposed to a new drug who starts being able to use more of her brain power, but it comes with a big catch 22.

Not great, but not bad either. There were some cool parts, and she does kick some @ss.

Today, now, I’m just hanging out. I don’t really have any big plans. Tabs is sleeping in the other room, I just finished watering the plants (TONS of tomatoes ready to pick), and now I’m saying hello to you.


What are you up to today? Is it hot out there? It’s, uh, like Death Valley out here… It was about 95 degrees yesterday, and it’s supposed to be almost that hot again today.

Yeah…we don’t have a working air conditioner, and it usually doesn’t matter because it rarely gets that hot here, but this is one of those weeks. Late in the day my office has been like a sauna, and even Tabs leaves the room.

It’s kind of funny, actually. If you could see the shenanigans and hoops I hop through to take face pics without my makeup melting off, you’d laugh. Let’s just say that I get pretty creative with fan placement, cross ventilation, towels and ice…

In other news, you know what time it is, right?

(Here’s a hint: it’s giveaway time.)

I hope you enter. Good luck. 🙂

    My cats slogan would be “you gonna eat that?” ❤️

  3. Kelsey Belzak says:

    Usually I drink 2 cups of coffee… More this week though because our 9 month old puppy came down with a nasty parasite and we’ve been cleaning up after her in the middle of the night 🙁 I could use some sephora pampering!

  4. Danica says:

    Hi Karen! 🙂 Speaking of HOT – it is too hot in Vegas! I’ve lived here about 6 years now and I’m still not used to this weather. Anyways, I was going to tell you my top 5 makeup brands:
    1. YSL – I really love the Le Teint Touche Éclat Foundation. It is just perfect for any season (it works well in Vegas Summer heat!).
    2. Makeup Geek – Love love love their eye shadows! Very good color payoff and to think the price is literally half of MAC eye shadows.
    3. MAC – First love. ♥
    4. Too Faced – their packaging is just amazing!
    5. Hmmm.. I don’t have 5th one. I’m really excited to try out Hourglass products. I still haven’t had the chance to… I saw your reviews about the Ambient Lighting Blushes and they look phenom! 🙂

  5. Anne G. says:

    I’d like to invent a cake that is actually healthy that you can eat without feeling guilty.

  6. Stephanie says:

    Telekinesis, because I am SO lazy. Plus when I have a cat on my lap… I do NOT want to get up!!

    It’s supposed to get up to 88 out here and I’m just not okay with it. Eesh. Good time to not do much of anything.

  7. Agata says:

    I drink at least 4-5 cups of coffee daily. Today might be more!

  13. Anna C says:

    My favorite Asian makeup is still the Missha BB cream, which I use as an under-eye concealer…it’s the only thing that works on my super dark eye circles, and lasts all day without creasing 🙂

  14. Ashleigh says:

    If your pet had a catchphrase or slogan, what would it be? Definitely, “I’d rather sleep!”
    What are your five current favorite makeup brands? YSL, Milani, Revlon, Sonia Kashuk, Tarte in no particular order 🙂

  20. Kay says:

    Gotta have at least one cup of green tea a day!

    And Yes, I drink a lot of coffee. Especially after my mum died. Coffee keeps me going.

    Great a great weekend 🙂

  26. Len Christenberry says:

    My dog’s catchphrase would probably be, “Nac??!” as in “can I have a snack, please, please, please??”

  27. melody brown says:

    The photo atop this entry is awesome…I’m drooling at Dolce & Gabbana summer 2014…Would you believe I’ve never tried High End cosmetics??? i’ve been a loyal customer to the original bareEscentuals line. Now that Leslie has sold it…it’s time to find another brand.

  28. Diana says:

    Hmm…I’d like to eat a lemon-raspberry-fudge-ripple triple layer cake with yellow or white cake inside.

    clairvoyance, for me 🙂

  31. Icequeen81 says:

    Hi Karen, how are you?
    Well we have 3 pets so all of them have a different catchphrase
    One of the pups gets tantrums , when she doesn’t want to do something she does that thing with her front feet/legs up and down, in then she makes a sound.So I think her catchphrase would be: MOM,DAD, I DO NOT WANT.

    The other one is very chill, If she is not in the mood, she will give you that Whatever look ; so her catchphrase would be: WHATEVER,

    while the rooster, Is always concern with what you do, So hes catchphrase would be WHAT YOU DOING?

    I I would make a cake it would be cocos and banana cream cake 🙂

    telekinesis : handy sometimes

  32. meka says:

    My five favorite makeup brands are a mix of drugstore and department stores brands at the moment: mac, milani, make up for ever, urban decay, and nyx.

  33. jen. says:

    I’ve been decaf-only for most of the summer, but I just had two big ol’ glasses of iced coffee. I think I’ll be up for awhile tonight.

    My current (and usual) favorites are: Tarte, Benefit, Clinique, YSL (love the lip stains!), and Urban Decay (the all nighter spray is the only thing keeping any makeup on my face these days).

  34. Meg says:

    I never drink coffee, rarely drink tea. Craziness! lol

    I would love the ability to fly!

  43. Erin says:

    I could not get through the day without 3-4 cups of coffee! No shame.

  44. sarah says:

    I don’t have a pet catchphrase, but every morning, when we cuddle, I tell my dog that I missed her when I was asleep. My fiance thinks it’s funny/weird. PS- I’d love to win! I need Sephora to help me lock down my wedding makeup look!

  45. bhevarri says:

    my pet’s catchphrase?? Oh hell, she’s a monster. Probably something about devouring the souls of the innocent.

  46. Emily says:

    Hmm…if my pet betta fish had a slogan, it’d be something like “I’m not dead YET, fools!”

    Seriously, this little guy is 4 years old, riddled with horrendous tumors, and he STILL keeps chugging along. I won’t let anyone euthanize him (which has been suggested to me repeatedly.) I think he’s made of magic.

  47. Lisa Downham says:

    My dog LOVES to sit beside the counter while I’m preparing lunch with the look on her face that says, “You know you want to drop something…”. When I’m finished and haven’t appeased her she sulks off to her bed with a harumph of, “you’re kidding me”.

  48. Stephanie says:

    Tonka is a american bulldog “puppy” who is about a year old. My family (Son, Daughter in law, her father and myself) rescued him at 7 months old. He is stil g

  49. Stephanie says:

    Tonka is an american bulldog and was rescued by my family. His catchphrase would be

  50. Stephanie says:

    Sorry, my laptop keeps hiccuping. Tonka’s catch phrase would be “Which way did he go George?”. He is big and beautiful however he is a bit off. He fits perfect into our unique family.

  51. Erika C. says:

    I just purchased the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara.

  52. Zahra says:

    4 cups of tea

    Definitely telekinesis!

    5 favorite makeup brands… that’s a hard one! Nars, Urban Decay, Laura Mercier, Buxom, and Maybelline – for now! They switch a lot haha

  53. Sofia says:

    I do need my caffeine dose everyday – I drink 2 cups a day, one in the morning, other after lunch.

  54. Courtney says:

    I love me some tea..I typically have anywhere from 3-10 cups in a day!

  55. I couldn’t even count how many coffees I drink in a day. I drink a pot in the morning and iced coffee through the day until bedtime o.O

  56. Whitney says:

    Boujour Karina!

    Hope you are well. I heart blushes!!

  57. serina says:

    every week i enter, so hopefully this week will be the lucky one!! but a cake i would LOVE, is a s’mores cake! i recently found an awesome recipe online for a s’mores dip! IN LOVE.

  58. Melanie says:

    Clairvoyance-it would be great for foreign travel! And aided by many cups of tea.

    I usually drink 3-4 cups of tea per day!

  60. Jessica Ryles says:

    Favorite makeup brands, Benefit, Nars, Urban Decay, Lorac and Stila!

  61. Carolina Campos says:

    What are your five current favorite makeup brands?
    MAC, Urban Decay, Lancome, Benefit and Maybelline.

  62. Jennifer Pham says:

    Telekinesis hands down!

  63. Lynn says:

    My fav brands are Tarte, MakeUp Forever, Nars, Marc Jacobs, and Benefits. I know you’re thinking, what about MAC, well I think it’s a good brand, but I’m not obsess with it, it’s kinda hyped up.

  64. Adrianne B says:

    I would like to make a Blue Velvet cake- like Red Velvet, but Blue. And make it Elvis themed!

  65. Monica says:

    I usually have two cups of coffee every day

  66. Betsy says:

    I drink two cups of tea in the morning. Five favorite makeup brands are: Estee Lauder, Lancome, MAC, Clinique, L’Oreal. Favorite Asian makeup brand is Shiseido.

  67. Nicole says:

    Anyone have any good dieting tips? I need to lose weight asap.

  68. Rachel Clyne says:

    Telekinesis would be great! Thanks for the contest!

  69. Eleine says:

    What is your opinion on the Revlon twist up lip balm/colors? I own 8 of them now! The stain balms are my favorite, but the mattes and glossy ones are amazingly pigmented and moisturizing for how pigmented they are.

  70. Lyndsey B. says:

    At lest 2 cups of coffee in the morning. Sweet tea is a weakness!

  71. Amber says:

    My favs are MAC, OCC, MUFE, and YSL.

  72. Amy says:

    Oh my god so much caffeine is required to make me work in the mornings. I actually bought these little “black coffee shots” off Amazon that can be put *into* a cup of coffee, to double the caffeine content. They come in a box of 200, because clearly the company is catering to people like me…

  73. Farah D says:

    I usually like to drink tea in the morning and night!

  74. Suzanne G says:

    I drink 2-4 cups of black iced tea daily and I love it. No sugar no lemon just straight black tea and lots of ice.

  75. Alison says:

    I think I’d rather be clairvoyant than telekinetic – if people found out I was telekinetic, they’d probably freak out (or I might end up in jail or worse!) but clairvoyance can always be passed off as having good intuition!

  76. Cathy says:

    I currently have a lipstick obsession problem -.-

  77. Allison says:

    My fave makeup brands currently are tarte, MAC, benefit, too faced, and NARS!

  78. Jessie C. says:

    Telekinesis !

  79. indoorkitty says:

    I’m baffled by a transitionery crease. Not a sharp cut crease, just a nice fadey crease. I can’t seem to make one happen on my NC 42 face. And google isn’t helping.

    Please hugs Tabs for me, it’s a makeup tragedy over here.

  80. Christine says:

    I’ve been trying Skin Food (Korean) brand since they opened stores in the Bay Area. It was the gateway drug to Asian beauty for me. I find their BB cream works for my winter skin tone and their sunblock doesn’t give me zits.
    Christine recently posted … Throwback – Buffalo Bills

  81. Mariela says:

    Im in love with Suqqu, which is a pain as it’s extremely hard to get for me and can get quite expensive.

  82. Susan Campbell says:

    I drink 2-3 cups of tea a day!

  83. Margrethe says:

    I would like to win this.

    I would also like to make a Daim peanut butter ice cake. I’m thinking a peanut butter base, a ice cream cake base With Daim bites. Yum!

  84. Rachel Runyan says:

    Telekinesis, especially when I leave something I need on the other end of the house. Clairvoyance would just drive me nuts.

  85. Kate G says:

    The only side effect is greatness.

  86. Meg R says:

    Are you planning on getting any products from the MAC X Marge Simpson line?

  87. susan says:

    I don’t drink coffee too often but I do have at least a cup of tea a day.

  88. Kristine says:

    Love your blog Karen. I have learned so much about beaty.

    I love healthy recipes. I wold love to invent a healthy oreo cake.

    Have a good day 🙂

  89. Tonya says:

    I’m dying to try a MeMe Box, but the shipping is a big deterrent. I’d almost rather pick $70 worth of their sale items and get free shipping.

  90. Julie says:

    I love coffee and must have at least one cup each morning, but if my toddler is extra crazy one day I’ll have a second to get me through the day! lol 🙂

  91. Michelle says:

    If I had to create a new cake, I’d combine two of my favorite cakes: matcha green tea and red velvet 🙂

  92. Erica says:

    It’s in the mid 80s here and I love it. It will be winter and freezing way too soon.

  93. Mariee says:

    I don’t drink tea or coffee, but a ton of diet coke.

  94. Stephanie Blackwell says:

    New to your blog! I hate the heat so much, its been reaching about 100 everyday for the last week where I’m at. Bleh.

  95. Nataya says:

    I drink a jumbo mug (ca. two cups) of tea or more a day. Have a good day

  96. tina says:

    -China Glaze (nails count, right?)

  99. Vanessa says:

    I would love a Sephora gift card! Even after the haul I did today, I still have so many things I want to buy!

  100. athena rutherford says:

    i drink about 2-3 cups of coffee per day!

  102. Amber says:

    I have 2 cups of coffee a day or 1 cup of coffee and 1 cup of tea 🙂

  103. Emily C says:

    Telekinesis would be awesome!

  104. Madison says:

    Love you blog! You should review the Smashbox Cherry Smoke palette for fall, that’s what I’ll be buying if I win the Sephora gift card! It is BEAUTIFUL!

  105. Berry says:

    Minimum 3 cups of coffee and 1 cup of tea a day. I drink a lot of coffee. 🙂

  106. Heather says:

    I actually don’t drink coffee. It tends to really upset my stomach. An upset stomach at work is no good. lol

  107. Sandy says:

    Hello Karen, those Dolce & Gabbana goodies look so beautiful! I am lusting over the new Too Faced Cocoa Powder Foundation and a Makeup Forever lipstick, I’ve never tried those but the colors are gorgeous.

  108. Mandy W says:

    Telekinesis, definitely!!

  109. Colleen Boudreau says:


  110. Jessica R says:

    Bite Beauty

  112. Marisa wagner says:

    Hey Karen,

    My favorite makeup brands are


  113. Savanna Salter says:

    I drink about 3-4 cups of tea a day – I absolutely loathe instant coffee.
    My fave Korean brand is definitely Etude House – So super cute.

  114. nina says:

    My cats catchphrase would be “I’m to sexy for my fur” lol.

  115. Nicole says:

    Bobbi Brown

  116. Susan T. says:

    I love Asian skincare! I don’t really have a favorite brand but I am obsessed with anything snail. Gross or not, it works!

  117. Cristina says:

    I would like to try Shiseido. Heard good things about the company.

  118. Cristina says:

    I don’t think I love anything but I do like Ever Bilena, Fashion 21 and Nichido from the Philippines. Inexpensive and it works.

  119. Mary V says:

    I like all kinds of makeup, right now I really like Diva Minerals, Cover Girl & BB Cream

  120. Cristina says:

    I think coffee cake is already out there but would like to create one, morning blend, light but effective. With coffee bean shaped chocolates on top, shavings of cocoa as decors, yum!

  121. Lisa Foster says:

    If my dog Dallas had a catchphrase, it would be, “it’s 6:00 somewhere!” He gets fed at 6:00 a.m. and p.m. every day, and he is always trying to convince me throughout the day that it’s 6:00.

  122. Ashley Celikay says:

    Etude House is my favorite asian makeup brand 🙂

  123. Carina says:

    ADDICTION is my favorite Asian makeup brand. 🙂

  124. Rachael Williams says:

    I can (and will if left to my own devices) drink coffee all day erry day!!

  125. Angela says:

    Hi Karen! I’m a new subscriber, I love your blog!
    I usually drink 1 cup of coffee a day. I’ve recently discovered a coffee shop in the Metro Detroit area called Biggby, and I am obsessed! Because I’m trying to be good, I limit myself to 1 a week, on Mondays.. because, let’s face it… No one looks forward to Monday, so I figured it would be a great way to start the week! I get a drink called a teddy bear: 3 espresso shot latte with white chocolate and carmel. I’ve been getting it over ice, with half the syrup and no whipped cream… truly amazing!

    Great contest, thank you!

  126. nat ogu says:

    i love shiseido and boscia

  127. Sienna says:

    I drink way to much coffee, 3 cups a day!

  128. Katherine says:

    Usually one cup of tea, in the afternoon.

  129. Rachel says:

    I currently have a wild turkey living in my backyard! He is HUGE and rather shy. He showed up last Saturday and just keeps sticking around. I live in town, so this is rather odd!!

  130. Jessica says:

    I actually like to switch between coffee and tea during the day depending on my mood. Usually it’s just one coffee or two teas though a day.

  131. I’d like to invent an allergen free cake that tastes like real cake. I can’t use flour, eggs, or dairy and I’ve made cakes before but they just aren’t the same. Flavor wise I think a unique cake would be a cinnamon bun cake with the regular frosting and not the cream cheese frosting 🙂

  132. Marina Grigório says:

    Every day I take an average of 200ml of tea, 100 ml of green tea and 100ml NRG which is a combination of black tea with coffee to give energy! All thinking about speed up metabolism and lose some flab! I take them very cold! 🙂

  133. Lúcia Roque says:

    First of all, thanks for the gift opportunity!
    Telekinesis would be awesome! 🙂

  134. Aida says:

    I’m not a fan of pseudoscience, so neither ;).

  135. Sara says:

    I gave up coffee two weeks ago!

  136. Tania G says:

    During the winter I would drink 2 cups of hot tea a day, but in the summer I drink iced tea, or just water with lemon 🙂

  137. Michelle ComesLast says:

    My cat would say “yes I do need 3/4 of your pillow to sleep on”.

  138. Fran S says:

    So, do you remember last week (or maybe a week before that) how you mentioned that Three Twins ice cream? Lemon with sandwich cookie pieces? Oh yeah, I ate an entire pint of it last night. I don’t think I’ve ever eaten an entire pint of ice cream before. Thank you, it was delicious 🙂

  139. Pooja says:

    My 5 fav makeup brands are:
    Urban Decay
    Makeup Forever

  140. Aina Yao says:

    I typically can only have one cup of coffee a day!

  141. Mardi says:

    In winter, which it is now, I probably have five or six cups of tea a day. In summer I’d have one.

  142. Casey says:

    I have one cup of coffee maybe 1 or 2 times a week! Stark contrast to when I worked at Starbucks and was having 2-4 espresso shots a day 😉

  143. Beatriz Eberhardt says:

    My cats Boo and Lola slogan would be “Can we sleep in here?”

  144. Lori P says:

    My favorite five makeup brands are Tarte, Urban Decay, Kat Von D, Bare Minerals and Coastal Scents.

  145. Savannah says:

    0 cups of coffee & 1 cup of tea a week, decaf. I do like green tea, though I only tend to drink it like crazy every few months or so. Then, it will be 14+ cups of tea per week 🙂

  151. Nicole Millheim says:

  152. Alix says:

    Telekinesis, for sure!

  153. Linda says:

    It’s hot as heck in So Cal right now. My room is on the west side of the building, so all afternoon it’s like an oven in there.

    I’m sure this cake exists somewhere, but right now I would love a lemon-flavored coffee cake (I really just want the sugary crust from coffee cakes) with whole blueberries baked in.

  163. Denise says:

    I rarely drink coffee. However I am a tea guzzler. 😛

    Hi Karen! I really enjoy your site! I’ve always thought that if I could have a superpower it would be telekinesis. I must have watched the movie Matilda too many times 🙂 But just think of the possibilities – never having to get up from the couch to retrieve the remote!

  198. Amoure says:

    I’m a committment phobe when it comes to makeup brands but choosing five (5) I think I can do.

    1. TF – Because they make some of the most awesome and reliable face preps, primers and stablizers.

    2. MichaelTodd – I’m really disappointed that they’ve stopped selling mu and only skin care. They had some great lipsticks, blushes and bronzers.

    3. NYX – Lipgloss!! I need not say more.

    4. MAC – I truly adore their lipsticks, blushes and concealers.

    5. Kiss – That BB cream gives me life + it’s the only one I can find in my complexion that doesn’t oxidize or make me look like a Cheeto.

    After all that I still missed a lot of brands and I didn’t mention shadows because I’ve found some great shadows from these brands and more.

  199. Kylie says:

    My top four beauty brands for the past few years: Tarte (foundation, concealer, blush, daytime mascara, bronzer, powder, eyeliner), Benefit (nighttime mascara, highlighter, blush), Urban Decay (eyeliner, eyeshadow, shadow primer), Too Faced (mascara, blush, eyeshadow, lipstick)…hard to say a fifth, because I really only like one or two products from different lines. The bulk of my collection is the four above.

  200. Ada says:

    I’m not entirely fond of gold packaging, but that D&G packaging is just glorious. <3

  201. Maria J. says:

    1. Dior
    2. Nars
    3. Benefit
    4. Tarte or Stila
    5. YSL or Urban Decay

    It’s too hard! I like trying lots of brands, and some brands make my favourite products for one area, like lips, but I don’t like their eye products etc.

  203. Laura says:

    I have about two to three cups of ginger tea a day. Not too bad.

  248. Lorraine says:

    Hey Karen! Looking forward to seeing Guardians of the Galaxy!! Heard it’s pretty good 🙂

  249. Chelsea says:

    Introducing the “Willy Wonka Wonderland Amazing Edible Wallpaper” cake. This is the cake that would meld my love of the whimsical topsy-turvy cakes seen in Alice in Wonderland with the lickable food wallpaper from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

    There are six layers of cake rising to a height of three feet. Each layer of cake boasts its own pastel color with baby blue atop peony pink atop periwinkle purple and so on. Of course there is glitter. The edible kind. The real fun is that each layer of cake tastes like something that is that color of that layer. For instance, the pink layer tastes like raspberry meringue, the purple tastes like succulent grapes, the blue like tart blueberries, the orange like creamsicles, the yellow like banana cream pie, the green like mint ice cream.

    And, like the everlasting Gobstopper, this cake never runs out, so there’s always enough for everyone to enjoy a few slices!

  250. Sonal says:

    Love your blog! So helpful.
    Telekinesis over clairvoyance.
    My favorite makeup brands are those that produce vegan products like
    UD, Tarte, Vasanti (Canadian), Emani (try Inde lipstick for the perfect nude/pink), and surprisingly MAC actually makes many of their products sans animal derivatives.

  251. weiwei says:

    hm favorite beauty brand? am liking 100 percent pure’s blush/highlighter, soho chic for body oil, really impressed by joico shampoo also. convinced it’s made of unicorn tears.

  252. em says:

    I drink about 2 cups of coffee a day but on some days I need 4

  253. jen c says:

    Thanks for having a giveaway.

  254. Markita says:

    These are some exciting topics…let’s see, where do I start?

    Um, MAKEUP of course!I have a makeup/product obsession, but I would say that some of my favorite brands at the moment are 1) Urban Decay 2)Too Faced 3)L’Oreal 4)Maybelline and 5)MAC. Seriously, narrowing that down proved to be my challenge of the day! Lol

    Either of the two special powers would be great, but if I have telekinesis, that would be awesome! Maybe I can use my telekinetic abilities to shop a lot quicker and bring my products to myself without me ever having to leave from in front of the mirror? Or is that just laziness? Well, heck, who cares. I work really hard I should be allowed to be lazy for a moment, while I explore my new- found talents!

    I have no idea what my pet’s catchphrase or slogan would be. Maybe I should ponder on it while I opt to make a cake from a box instead of trying to invent one that I would like to try. I mean, Betty Crocker and Duncan Hines have done me right for years. Why compete and risk ruining a perfectly good relationship?

  255. AParks says:

    I’m so glad to have found this site. I’m just building my confidence as I re-enter the makeup world.

  256. Donna W. says:

    I love Lancome’s foundation and eye shadow.

  258. sone says:

    bdw Have you heard of Forest Essentials? They make awesome…all organic…Vedic Indian skincare and Bath/body products…they are just so Glorious!! You MUST try!!

  259. Erin says:

    “When mom asked you to take out the trash she meant throw out the garbage NOT take it out on a date.” ~by Zulma Gonzalez

  261. Una says:

    My favorite make-up brand at the moment is Make Up For Ever… I am attending their short group classes and am loving it!

  262. Zulma says:

    Due to being unemployed, I’ve been pondering what I can do to earn some cash; I considered prostitution but because I am chronically single……obviously I can’t even give it away for free.

  263. Bonnie says:

    Ooh, I’m thinking telekinesis because I laaaaaaazy…

  264. nai says:

    I’m not supposed to have more than three servings of caffeine a week because I get heart palpitations and hard tissue in my breasts. I do adore an excellent cup of joe so on weekends, we often hit our fave Honolulu coffee shops, The Curb or Morning Glass Coffee.

  265. Jessi says:

    I tend to drink at least 5 cups of coffee a day. I’m currently loving Etude House for Asian makeup.

  266. Diane says:

    Telekinesis. On the surface, clairvoyance sounds good, but I think it would be off-putting to know too much about the future, especially if you couldn’t control what you were clairvoyant about and only got snippets that you had to then make sense out of, like Phoebe did on Charmed. 🙂

  267. Linnie says:

    Top of my list right now are:
    – Urban Decay
    – Chanel (love their new eyeshadow quads!)
    – Charlotte Tilbury (so want to get my hands on some of that!)
    – Anything French pharmacy related, especially La Roche Posay, Nuxe and Biaderma
    – Lancome (classic, great quality products)

  268. Caitlyn says:

    Not happy that it’s Monday already, but happy I will be traveling to see my best friend on Friday! 🙂

  269. Karen says:

    I’ll take my coffee in an IV drip if I could!
    I have to limit my consumption, 1 espresso every 3 hours for optimal function.

  270. Mirjana says:

    I’m thinking telekinesis

  271. Favorite Asian makeup/beauty brand?

    I actually live in Japan, and I really LOVE Mishha and Canmake.
    Canmake is an affordable makeup brand here in Japan, and Missha carries this really high coverage BB Cream, which is around $16 (high end), totally worth it.

  272. Kim says:

    I’ve been pretty excited about Lucy – I was hoping to see it some time this week. 🙂

    I think it’s 100% acceptable to move all FOTDs to the pool in that kind of weather. I’m sure you feel like you’re in an 80s music video with the fans going. 🙂

  273. Amanda Sakovitz says:

    3 cups of coffee daily

  274. Rachel P. says:

    Currently, my five favorite makeup brands are:
    -Kat Von D (love my new Studded Kiss lipstick in Poe, and rediscovering my True Romance Ladybird palette!)
    -Maybelline (the Pure Dream BB is great, and I’ve been using the Bold Gold color tattoo as an eye base a lot- also, Baby Lips. New convert right here.)
    -Tarte (I use a Tarte stain as a blush/blush base almost every day)
    -L’Oreal (I don’t think I’ve gone a day without using some type of L’Oreal product this summer)
    -NYX (new Angel Veil primer is nice, plus Butter Glosses = lovely!)

  275. Steph says:

    Tough choice but I think my current top faves are:
    Urban Decay

  276. Adrianna says:

    Where I live currently is having a dry spell so it’s always a relieve to pop into the shower at the end of the day.

  277. Trude says:

    I tend to keep my caffeine intake the same each day (helps my migraines), so just the one cup in the morning. It always takes me so long to drink it’s late by the time I finish anyway! 🙂

  278. Alyssa Lee says:

    I’m trying to cut back on my coffee intake so I’ve switched to green tea. I have 1-2 cups a day.

  279. Sarah B says:

    Hi Karen!!
    My favorite Korean beauty brand is Missha (looooooove their BB cream!!). Hope you and Tabs are well!

  280. Lorraine says:

    3-4 cups coffee and tea daily

  281. Theo says:

    If had to choose five make up brands I adore that would definitely be Urban Decay (eye pencils are just awesome), Too Faced (shadows of extremely high quality), Mac (simply, burst of color), Chanel (pretty high-end and quality) and Guerlain (smells so good).
    P.S. Thanks for an amazing beauty blog – keep reading it all the time 😉

  282. Bev says:

    Only 1 small cup of coffee, unfortunately, because I’m a school bus driver; you know why

  284. anissa says:

    i don’t drink coffee or tea, only caffeinated drink for me is soda (or the occasional rock star energy drink).

  285. Nicole says:

    I’d love to try some D&G makeup—just too expensive for me!

  286. Mallory B says:

    Hmm, I guess my current top 5 makeup brands would be Maybelline, NYX, Tarte, Milani, and Urban Decay. I’m a girl that likes a good bargain 🙂 (because I’m a Walmart employed college student and can’t afford my makeup addiction right now)

    My dog’s motto would be “it’s all about me” I swear, if he’s awake and I’m not paying attention to him, he slams my laptop shut and barks at me until I chase him. Silly goose.

    Finally, I would love to try something like a lavender earl grey tea petit four. Mmm, my mouth is watering just thinking about them.

  287. AmyD says:

    i don’t need to invent a cake…i just had a layered raspberry mousse and chocolate cake. perfection.

    my favorite asian makeup brand?! – so many! i have a bunch of addiction products that i like (the cheek sticks and eyeshadows are great), and balmy lipsticks from etude house are wonderful!

  288. Doreena says:

    Hope everyone is having a great summer! I am lots of country concerts, just saw Keith Urban for the first time & all I can say is WOW!!!

    I don’t drink coffee, but I make myself a matcha green tea latte more mornings 🙂

  293. Natasha says:

    Right now I’m on a tea craze… I’ve been drinking anywhere from 1-4 cups of green tea every day!

  299. Julie Simpson says:

    I turned 50 a few months ago and I realize aside from only having 3 pairs of shoes I need to update my look. It’s worked for me for so long but I am a makeup artist and used to work at Hudson’s now Macy’s , I’ve modeled, I still do makeup for people when they ask but I haven’t changed. It’s time.

    Hmm, my five favourite makeup brands…I would say those are currently NARS, MAC, Revlon, Benefit and Tarte (although I cannot really say that I have tried a lot of Tarte products yet…only two – the third one should arrive sometime this week. It inot as easy to get your handy on over here as it probably is over on your side of the big pond).

    Oh, and the whole I-want-food-to-magically-appear-NOW….yeah, totally feeling that at the moment. Even if I were not often too lazy to cook it is just so hot! in my kitchen at the moment that I can hardly be bothered to go in there, stay for any length of time and prepare a meal (let alone a warm/hot one). The curse of south-side facing flat…

    Telekenisis for sure!

  302. Ariel R says:

    I drink 1 cup of coffee and 1 cup of tea a day!

  304. roz says:

    I have about 2 cups of green tea a day. I love it!

    Well I think my favorite Asian brand will be Biore because their sunscreens are far better and cheaper than the ones we get.

    Hey, Karen! 🙂 Like you, I have an adorable, fluffy, cuddly [I’ll just stop here before this list takes up the whole page] cat too! His name is Mimi [wow so manly, right?] and if he had a slogan, it would totally be “Sleep wherever, whenever!”
    If I had to invent a cake, it would definitely be a Nutella cake. Just. Nutella. I would try it, but I’m pretty sure it’s a one-step recipe for diabetes 🙂
    On a typical day, I have around 5-6 cups of coffee, but I’m trying to wean myself off of it because I’m basically addicted. And guuuurl, things get ugly when I don’t get my fix! Haha, you know what I mean?
    Hm…Telekinesis or clairvoyance? Tough question. I think I’d have to pick telekinesis though. Life would just get boring if I knew what was going to happen in the future all the time with clairvoyance. But if I had telekinesis, I could make things move with my mind, and finally make my life-long dream of having a hoverboard, from the movie “Back to the Future!” That would be awesome!
    My five current favorite makeup brands are Maybelline (they have killer mascaras), Clarins (they make this gel that waterproofs any mascara and it’s just an absolute HG!), YSL (everything they make is basically amazing), Revlon (they make great drugstore lip products, like their lip butters), and Guerlain (rose scented mascara omg). And my favorite Asian makeup brand would have to be Missha, because they make amazing BB creams. 😀

    For the last month I have been drinking hot tea instead of coffee. I have 2 cups in the morning.

  308. Libby says:

    I typically have about 3-4 cups of tea a day! Can’t live without my caffeine intake, especially now that I’ve quit coffee 😀

  309. ame says:

    Favorite Asian beauty brand…tossup between DHC and Shu probably. Both make nice cleansing oils though I guess SHU for the sheer selection of great products.

    Top 5 favorite makeup brands at the moment, in no particular order:

    1. Hourglass (that Extreme Sheen lipgloss, yo);
    2. Guerlain (always and forever–I dream about winning the lottery and buying all the Rouge Gs);
    3. Too Faced (I’m all about that La Creme formula and Jelly Bean is pretty close to a HG lip for me);
    4. Shiseido (their tinted moisturizer is saving my skin this summer);
    5. Becca (the Beach Tint Shimmer Souffle in watermelon/moonstone is pretty much the best thing that ever happened to my cheeks).

    I only drink coffee once a day and I feel that is enough to make it through the day. I only drink tea cold and my favorite is Peach Iced Tea.

  318. RudeGirl says:

    6-10 cups a day, now that my new workplace has multiple machines in the break rooms. I’ve always had a high tolerance for caffeine, though…
