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

Published in: Giveaways, Just For Fun

Win a $50 Sephora e-gift card from Makeup and Beauty Blog

Enter to win a $50 Sephora e-gift card, babe!

Kaw, kaw! So, Birdman… Seemed like a long movie to me, but I thought it was interesting and different. The whole thing plays out like one long camera shot, so the scenes sort of flow into each other. I’ve seen that effect before, but I liked the way it worked here.

In the movie, Michael Keaton’s character plays an aging, washed-up actor everyone knows as the man who formerly played Birdman, a comic book superhero he stopped playing in movies many years earlier (kind of autobiographical in that way, since Michael played Batman in the late ’80s and early ’90s). Now he’s producing, directing and starring in his own Broadway play, after investing his life savings into it, and most of the movie is about the shenanigans backstage before opening night. Oh, and he’s also losing his mind… Or something like that.


I wouldn’t say it’s my favorite movie of the year so far, but I liked it.

In related news, TWO WEEKS TILL THIS!!!

Your nephew and I are very excited. ๐Ÿ™‚

    My favorite shoes? Lol! My knees will only let me wear flats. Comfortable flats. I like to wear the Mary Janes from Walking Cradles because they’re so comfortable, and they let me show off my hand-knit socks. I have them in three colors, black, navy, and pewter. I also have two different styles of waterproof walking shoes from Clarks, in navy and khaki tan. If this woman is determined to walk everywhere, she still wants to do it in some degree of style as well as complete comfort!

  2. Alex says:

    This blog is one of my favorites – your writing is very witty and thoughtful. Not to mention, your makeup commentary is always on point. Keep being cattastic!

  3. Lizzie says:

    I’ve been wanting to try contouring properly for months but I just can’t seem to find the right products! Hopefully if I win this, I’ll be able to pick up something in Sephora that’s just right!

  4. Honi says:

    Right now no shoes are my favorites, I got a weird blister on the side of my heel which makes shoe wearing very dreadful right now ๐Ÿ™ Gonna get some blister plaster!

  5. Tiffanie says:

    I love all the holiday sets that are out right now! It’s my favorite time of year for makeup.

  6. Remi says:

    I have lots of makeup fears. Finding a good nude lip look. Wearing foundation with more than light coverage. Liquid eyeliner.

    .. I’m working on them.

  7. I’ve got my eye on quite a few holiday gift sets!

  8. Lydia says:

    My favorite shoes right now are these blue Steve Madden combat boots my boyfriend got me last year for Christmas!

  9. Meline says:

    My fave shoes is the gold flat shoes from Michael Kors ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Melissa says:

    My favorite shoes are black ankle boots!

  11. Allison Mihalyov says:

    I am TRYING to control myself with the VIB sale, but it is SO hard:)

  12. Lori P says:

    I like to think I’m a healthy mixture of both seductive and sweet!

  13. Mae says:

    I’ve been wanting to wear eyeshadow lately but I’m still new to makeup

  14. Kate Gentry says:

    I’m definitely sweet. Not so good at sinister or seductive. ๐Ÿ˜›

  15. Berry says:

    Favorite shoes are my gray suede boots. They have a high-ish heel but are super comfortable. I’ll cry when they wear out, I just know I will.

  16. Laurinha says:

    I’d love if MAC Soft&Gentle was smaller – and cheaper….

  17. Sarah W says:

    My current favorites are some sandals I bought with bottoms made of yoga mats! They’re like wearing slippers everywhere.

  18. whitney says:

    I am afraid to try a really colorful eye look.

  19. Katie F says:

    I’m afraid to try any hair style basically. I have very finicky curly hair – I haven’t had a haircut in probably eight years because every hair stylist has messed it up really badly. :/ I need to get a trim because I have crazy split ends, but I’m scared…

    My favorite shoes are probably still my vegan Litas (Jeffrey Campbell boots). I usually don’t spend that much on shoes, but they’re super cute, and surprisingly comfortable for such high platforms/heels. I always feel kick-ass when I wear them!

  20. Sarah says:

    Any patent-leather flats are my jam right now.

  21. Ashley says:

    A hairstyle I am too scared to try is shaving the side of my head, and leaving the rest of my hair long!

  22. Alix says:

    I’m lovin’ my new black suede walking shoes from LLBean.

  23. Melanie says:

    One of my favorite pairs of shoes are my animal print Sperrys with hot pink laces.

  24. B says:

    current favourite shoes are these awesome black leather booties with gold accents, I picked them up on a whim a couple weeks ago and have gotten a surprising amount of use out of them already

  25. Agata says:

    I am sweet ๐Ÿ™‚

    MY favorite pair of shoes right now is my new pair of suede high heeled boots.

  26. Jennifer Wood says:

    My favorite dish is butternut squash soup. This time of year is all about the pumpkin flavor! I’m so excited to find this blog and get all your makeup tips!

  27. Susie says:

    My favorite shoes right now are my Dolce Vita kid-sized brown ankle boots. So glad I can wear kids shoes because they’re so much cheaper and still look awesome!

  28. Sarah says:

    I would love to go with a dramatic hair color, but I just remember when I dyed my hair a soft black and how the grow out process was! It was pretty humorous looking back!

  29. dawn says:

    I am excited that there are so many options for black lipstick. Not like back in the day when black eyeliner carefully slathered in lip balm was your only option. I fear I am too old to own, let alone wear, black lipstick. :/

  30. Samantha says:

    I would love to one day straighten my natural hair! Since I have had heat damage before , I am bit afraid to do it. I have since colored my hair as well so maybe during the winter I’ll get brave enough to attempt it. I already purchase a blow dryer which I use to diffuse my hair from time to time. 2015 here I come with some straight hair lol hopefully anyway!!!

  31. Isabella says:

    I would love to try darker hair, but I’m afraid it’ll be hard to go back to blonde. I might go for a darker blond look next time though, or maybe strawberry! What do you think Karen? ๐Ÿ™‚

  32. kathryn says:

    I’m too sweet at heart to be sinister

  33. Miki says:

    My current favorite shoes are a pair of black booties I got on clearance at DSW for $5.
    Miki recently posted … October Favorites

  34. Jen G says:

    I am really loving my studded Michael Kors (Astor) flats right now

  35. Jenn P says:

    My current favorite shoes are whatever allow my feet to breathe! Apparently Southern Caliornia has not got the memo about fall and it has been 80+ here! I just want to wear boots!

  36. Amber says:

    I ordered twice from the VIB sale so far ๐Ÿ˜‰

  37. Lisa Brown says:

    I have been to afraid to try the pixie hair cut, although, it is cute.

  38. Trillina Palemi says:

    i’m sweet ๐Ÿ™‚

  39. Nicole says:

    Happy Caturday!!! =)

  40. Christy says:

    boots are my go to right now!

  41. Michelle says:

    I always order filet mignon, foie gras, and glass of wine at a nice restaurant. I love French food, and a juicy steak is a must. Escargot is also awesome!

  42. Kristin M. says:

    My favorite shoes are now, and always have been, flip flops. I’ve tried to cut ties with them, but I just can’t seem to give them up.

  43. Angela churchill says:

    Thank you for reviewing a lot of the holiday sets this year! It makes my choices easier ๐Ÿ™‚

  44. CatG says:

    I love going out for breakfast and ordering french toast. There’s a local restaurant here who makes their own ciabatta bread and then uses it for the french toast. Omg Karen, it tastes so good with just some butter and the tiniest bit of powdered sugar, it never gets old to me!

  45. Julie Wood says:

    My favorite dish to order at a Restaurant is any type of Chinese-especially Almond Chicken!

  46. Happy Caturday!!! No real weekend plans. I picked up a lot of stuff from the vib sale so I’m staying in and not spending anything else this weekend. Haha

  47. Rachel says:

    My current favorite pair of shoes are these cheetah print oxfords I got for Christmas almost two years ago now. They’re super comfortable and the print is neutral enough that I can pair them with almost anything!

  48. Leona says:

    I’d say I’m more seductive than sinister or sweet. Also, it would depend on the reason for why my friends would dislike a boyfriend.

  49. Kim Pincombe Cole says:

    I haven’t heard of the movie Birdman (had to quick google it) – thanks for the recap! I cannot wait until Mockingjay comes out!!

  50. Princess says:

    Wish I had the guts to try some of the neon lipsticks that are hot right now. Baby steps…

  51. Cassie says:

    I love kitties so much and i love that you feature Tabs quite often, it makes me happy!!!

  55. Renee says:

    My favorite shoes right now are a comfy pair of patent nude flats from Pay Less. I’ve been meaning to go and buy a back up pair because I wear them so often!

  56. Bianca Rogoveanu says:

    Favorite shoes right now : UGGs

  57. Suzanne G says:

    A hairstyle that I have been afraid to try is the pixie cut. I really want to but it takes so long to grow my hair out again to shoulder length.

  58. Lisa Neutel says:

    My fave shoes are my knee high boots

  59. Dollie says:

    Did you watch Interstellar? I really want to watch it. Hope hubby and I can go for it next week. Have a good weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

  60. tasha liedberg says:

    A product i would love much more if it were smaller? The limitem edition tarte away oui go set. It’s just really bulky. Also the too faced chocolate bar palette, I know they recently made them smaller but I unluckily bought mine before they remade it.

  61. Rebecca Ray says:

    I LOVE your blog! Every day you show me something new to fall in love with. So many new products and the way you show them to us and your reviews are great!Thank you!

  62. Amy says:

    I wish I was daring enough to do really bold, vibrant eye makeup.

  63. Susan Tice says:

    My favorite dish to order in a restaurant is Chicken Alfredo.

  64. Marisa says:

    Sweet, for sure! <3 It's all about the unicorns, sugar, and sparkles. However, seductive and sinister come out to play occasionally, but as a darker layer over the brightness, like stockings… or fishnets ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I can only think of one thing that would be better if it were smaller… the new Nails Inc. bottles! They are giants! I've never hefted a heavier nail polish bottle in meh life. But other than various awkwardly large packaging conundrums… nope. When it comes to products, I'm thinking the more the merrier ๐Ÿ˜€

  65. Tiffanee Simar says:

    Whatโ€™s your favorite dish to order at a restaurant?
    — Currently, I’m loving the Beef Fajita Omlette from this little taqueria down the street ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s by far my favorite breakfast meal!

    What are your current favorite shoes?
    — I wear my flats the most often (for work), but if I could I would wear my plain Jane black Converse everyday!

    Are you more sinister, seductive or sweet?
    — I’m definitely a sweet person! However, I do have the ability to be sinister and seductive when the occasion calls for it.

    A makeup look or hair style youโ€™ve been too afraid to try?
    — I don’t really have any :/ I’ve already cut my hair super short, and I wore my first red lipstick look the other day! Maybe a purple lip? Like a pure violet lip look.

    A product you would love much more if it were smaller?
    — Umm… I’m from Texas, and you know how the saying goes. “Bigger is better!” I think my laptop is the only thing I wish was smaller. It’s an older MacBook Pro so it’s super thick and bulky.

    Does it bother you if your friends donโ€™t like someone youโ€™re dating?
    — My friends don’t like my current boyfriend, but I stay with him. We have our ups and downs, and I do tend to only call people when things are bad :/

    Thank you for doing the giveaway!

  66. Alice says:

    I had both very long and very short hair in my life, and i’ve always wanted (even now) to shave the side of my head when i have long hair, but i miss the courage XD

  67. Lorie says:

    Lately I’ve loved ordering Chicken Tikka Masala.. Yummy Indian food always gets me. =) Oh and burgers.. Ugh.

  70. shaunie says:

  75. Aurelie Red says:

    I’m french, and my favorite dish is “hachis parmentier” (a gratin with smashed potatoes and beef), sooo good !

  82. Icequeen81 says:

    Hi Karen

    alllot of products I wish they were smaller, my bag is sometimes so heavy that I think that if I hit somebody with my bag he/she wil feel unconscious or just be knock out.

    for example blushes are too bulky
    my face powder then again too bulky and heavy
    my eyeglasses case I get it your glasses need to be secure but this one is ridiculous.

  83. Siobhan says:

    I love any deluxe sample sized product – I like to try a lot of things and I rarely finish an entire lipstick/mascara etc. Holiday sets are the best for this! Everything is just the perfect amount – and great for travelling too!

  84. Tracy says:

    current favourite shoes are my ankle booties from F21!

  85. Sne says:

    I could definitely use this!

  94. Michelle says:

    Made fettuccine for lunch! Yummy! The Hubby Has A Cold So At Home With My DAUGHTER Just chillin on a beautiful Saturday! A make-up and hair day free day! Still in my pajamas! Love days like these. Should clean and be productive but just plain lazy. Enjoy your Saturday with tabs!

  95. Zahra says:

    Favorite pair of shoes currently my ankle boots from last year’s collection at Geox. They’re brown leather, with a very slight wedge and side zips. Completely waterproof and skip-proof! Great with absolutely everything and you can totally wear them in winter and be nice and cozy ๐Ÿ™‚

  96. Melanie says:

    The makeup look that I’m so intimidated by is winged eyeliner! I have very hooded eyes so its very dificult to accomplish :/

  97. Megan says:

    I like ordering pasta or fish at restaurants.

  99. Katrina says:

    Am I the only one who said “Kaw kaw” while reading the blog post? LOL As much as I love makeup and smokey eye, I’m too afraid to wear outside the classic black smokey eye. I feel like I look like a panda. lol.

    My favorite dish to order at a restaurant is fettuccine alfredo mixed with marinara sauce.

  102. Jade says:

    I really wish I was a bit younger to rock a purple hair.

  103. Cindy Fox says:

    My current favorite shoes are the 3 fringe layer Minnetonka boots! They are perfect for fall, of course I am late buying them because they’ve been out for a while now… But it’s never too late to wear fabulous shoes! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  104. nlm8 says:

    Favorite restaurant dish…strawberry shortcake from Cheesecake Factory! And yesss….2 more weeks til Mockingjay!

  105. susan says:

    I’m afraid to try the smokey eye. I can’t make it look smokey, it looks more like a raccoon!

  106. Justine says:

    My home currently smells like bacon.

  107. Laura says:

    My favorite shoes right now are a pair of gold flats I got from target.

  108. Sierra says:

    I am afraid to do a black and grey smokey eye. It looks like it would just look like a bruise or a mess if I tried.

  109. Jennifer says:

    Ohhh, don’t have a favorite at restaurants…but I enjoy a good filet mignon, or manicotti, or clam chowder! And for dessert: cheesecake or guava cake.

    Are you more sinister, seductive or sweet?

    The Tom Ford cream eyeshadows (I’ll never ever finish that!)

  111. Taylor says:

    I’m loving colored moccasins and tall boots!

  112. Stephanie G says:

    I love to order pasta dishes when I eat out!

  113. Gvenda says:

    I’ve been so afraid to do hairstyles in general!
    But since I’ve moved to a city that’s usually either windy or rainy I usually can’t wear my vintage curls and I despise having straight hair so I’ve been trying out a lot of things: vintage rolls, crown braids, beehives, fake betty bang – and it turned out to be a lot easier than I thought!!!

  114. Jessie C. says:

    My current favorite shoes- Acne Pistol boots.

  115. Amoure says:

    Are you more sinister, seductive or sweet?

    I’d have to say that my personality is more along the sweet side, but there is a little seduction in there when the situation presents itself.

  116. Deb says:

    My current favorite dish is mushroom and parmesan risotto. So delicious!

    But in restaurants, I usually order beef filet mignon, since I never cook this dish at home.

  117. Laure says:

    I’m probably gonna go to Interstellar next week. If I like it, I’ll let you know. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  118. As it approaches winter, and the weather has cooled off big time here, my current favorite shoes are my fuzzy slippers!

    Just saw some movies – Nightcrawler was great. I thought that Jake Gyllenhaal did awesome at becoming the character!

  120. April says:

    I’d have to say that I could live in my running shoes. I feel like I’m always out running. I should probably just bite the bullet and sign up for a race, I’ve never done one before.

  121. My favorite thing to order in a restaurant is any vegetarian dish I can find on the menu!

    My children are adults and I’ve been happily married for over 30 years.

  123. Kassie says:

    Does wanting to dye my hair a weird color count? I would really like to do something really different with my hair like blue or teal but I don’t dye my hair at all and I’m actually pretty fond of my natural color. I did try hair chalk and it was kind of cool but they’re too messy!

  124. Mardi says:

    Just over a week until we fly to NYC and I can hit Sephora!

  125. Suzanne C says:

    I’ve been afraid to try a cat eye and contouring. I’m fine with makeup basics, but anything ‘fancy’ I’m not really good at.

  126. BooBooNinja says:

    I’m more sweet.

  127. Krista says:

    My fav thing to order at a restaurant is always something I can’t make easily at home!

  133. Ms. Elise says:

    I know it’s probably a bit silly, but I’m still terrified of doing a smoky eye of any kind. I’ve tried multiple times, but I ended up looking like I got punched in the eye at karate instead of sultry and sexy, so I just scrubbed it off and went back to my “signature” kitten eye with black liner.

    But I wanna actually learn to do it so bad, because all the looks are fun and I LOVE the idea of a shimmery one for Christmas. I just haven’t found a way to keep from looking like I failed at kumite.

  134. Tania G says:

    I love the farro salad from the cheesecake factory!!

  141. A makeup trend I’ve been afraid to try…black lips…I just don’t know… Something I love that you might be surprised about – Mary Kay’s eye shadow primer – favorite lipstick now is MAC Lustering ๐Ÿ™‚

  142. Pritee Sidhu says:

    My current favorite dish to order at restaurants vary. If it is an Indian restaurant then I love to order Sholay Bhature or keep it simple with anything chicken lol.

    I really really really want to try a bright eye-look one day (true neon colors if I can) – but I’m waay to afraid of looking overdone, especially as I haven’t mastered other face make up quite yet. >.> Don’t want to look like a clown.

    Maybe what I need is to bite the bullet and buy the electric palette (though it’d be a crazy expensive experiment if doesn’t turn out well. xD

    I think I am ALL 3! Sinister,seductive and sweet. But before I get more into that. Ask yourself this….Aren’t we all a bit of all 3? Let me explain, we all have that sinister in us all. Their those times that we are a bit evil. Like the time your boyfriend angers u tobthe point of no rerurn and you decide for a little payback. What better way than to wash his clothes and accidentally pour some bleach on his favorite shirt. Hehe…not that I’ve done it but I’ve thought of it. That is till sinister of me for thinking it. Don’t you think? On to the next. You must have that seductive side of you. Either if you are in a relationship or not. You need to have that certain sexy side if you. You either are seductive for your man or for your own confidence. Remember!… Who runs the world? Girls!! Now for sweet. I know for sure I am by far one of the sweetest persons. Yes it may sound a bit narcissist,but I’ve done a lot of goods deeds in my life. Sweet means for me: Kind, thoughtful, cute, helping hand etc… i can go on. I think I fit in all of the criteria. This is why I think I am a fit for all.

  202. missvee says:

    I am afraid to try (again) the pixie cut. I know I can’t pull off short haircuts because I have really thick hair that stick out in all directions, but I think a pixie would be flattering for my small chin.

  213. A hairstyle I would love to try is the half shaven parted hair like how Demi Lovato had her hair. I love outrageous hairstyles! I have in the past dyed my hair multiple times with different colors or cutting my hair a certain way. I’m not afraid to try new styles so that be pretty risquรฉ for me to rock that look

  228. Melody says:

    A makeup look or hair style you’ve been too afraid to try?

    Ombre hair! And ironically, I’m afraid to try an ombre lip as well. I think edgy style just isn’t my thing, but maybe for the new year I’ll try one – or maybe both! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  233. Lisa says:

    I’m afraid to try a really short haircut above my shoulders but i think it’s soo cute on others. Not sure if it’ll work on my round face. lol. Also I’m afraid to do smokey eyes on my monolid eyes, it’s so hard to do eye makeup on them. Ahhh! :p

    I love to order steak and a baked potato when I go to a restaurant.

  244. Diane says:

    What are your current favorite shoes? – My Sorel Campus Tall boots in the color Elk Felt! I wanted something more interesting than Uggs (but equally cozy) this winter, and I looooove these.

    Are you more sinister, seductive or sweet? – I like to think seductive, lol.

    Does it bother you if your friends don’t like someone you’re dating? – I’ve never run into this problem, which makes me think yes, it would bother me. I’m not saying it would be a deal breaker, but I definitely care about the opinions of those who know me best and can give me well-meaning 3rd-party feedback. I’m always receptive to that and can tell whether or not someone has my best interests at heart.

    When dining out, I prefer to order something that I do not ordinarily make at home. Something unusual, or time consuming to make. I just feel guilty if I get something I could have easily made myself, for far less $ than eating out. It seems justified if the meal is unique, difficult to make, or involves spices I do not usually keep in the pantry.

    Kickin Artichoke Dip!

  268. Miki says:

    โ€ขWhatโ€™s your favorite dish to order at a restaurant? – Typically it has been pasta, but now I like to try new recipes with fun ingredients. I’m rarely disappointed. Yesterday I had seared brocollini with French fries in dill sauce! Oh so good!
    โ€ขWhat are your current favorite shoes? My super colorful Asic’s Gel Noosa Tri-9’s ๐Ÿ˜€
    โ€ขAre you more sinister, seductive or sweet? I guess I’d have to say more sinister than either of the other two! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    โ€ขA makeup look or hair style youโ€™ve been too afraid to try? Wow .. is it bad that there is so little I’m afraid of when it comes to hair and makeup?? LOL. I try it all! But I think the only thing I’m weary of is red lips. I just don’t know if I could pull them off, and have never tried.
    โ€ขA product you would love much more if it were smaller? Hmmm … my contouring and blush brushes! Those are always too big IMO!
    โ€ขDoes it bother you if your friends donโ€™t like someone youโ€™re dating? Probably would … but I’m married. And all my friends like my hubbie, so we’re good. He’s a super lovely man though, how could they not. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Well it used to be the becca SSP liquid highlighter, but I see now that they have small sizes which is a million times better, because you need so little and it will end up just getting thrown out.

    I just would like to give a heads-up to a wonderful lipstick Sephora used to make,and I am hoping they still do. It was/is a lovely wine colored(several colors are made)matte finish(also came in a regular finish) that has great ‘staying’power. Winning this would enable me to get back to Sephora and hopefully find that they are still in production!Staying power is the 1st thing I look for;and this Sephora brand definitely had/has staying power!
