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

Good morning, buddy! So, Mockingjay last night. El Hub and I went, and while some of the reviews out there haven’t been kind, I liked it…which I know is probably a HUGE surprise.


But seriously, some of the reviews are calling it the worst of the three movies, boring, just a real stinker, but I didn’t think so at all.

It definitely has a different feel than the other two films, yeah, but so did the third book. The filmmakers split the last book in half to squeeze out another movie, but that’s sort of par for the course these days with successful franchises.

It’s darker than the first two films, literally. Not as many long sequences outdoors in thick forests and jungles, but that’s because this one is a wartime story, and it looks the part. I can’t say that I enjoyed the movie quite as much as the other two, but I did like it, and I think it holds its own in the greater Hunger Games film canon.

I mean, you know…if you’re a fan of the Hunger Games, it’s not like you’re not gonna see this movie. πŸ™‚

    I don’t hang out with neighbors.

    I want a really nice camera for Christmas so I can get my youtube channel started!! I have big dreams ahead of me (:

  4. Allie says:

    When deciding what neighbour to talk to scope em out first, you will always have a creepy or jerk neighbour.

  5. Agata says:

    Hi Karen, I am glad you enjoyed the movie although Hunger Games do not interest me at all, lol.

    I think it’d be cool to have a brother! But I only have a sister.

    I am slowly expanding my Christmas list, I actually made a Pintrest board http://www.pinterest.com/herandmakeup/christmas-wishlist/ You can check it out.

    Happy Saturday! What are you doing today?

    • Karen says:

      Hi Agata,

      A Pinterest board Christmas list — that’s a great idea. You have some really good products on there too. I love that Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette.

      It’s raining here today, so we’re probably going to focus on chores and housework, bluh. I need to vacuum and do necessary evils like that…

      I hope you have something fun on your agenda today.

  6. Stephanie says:

    Husband said Mockingjay was getting horrible reviews, but we have to see it. We read all the books and saw the other two. Today is the perfect day for a matinee.

    I think I want a Clarasonic or a nice coat for Christmas. My bday is the 23rd so I get separate presents for bday and Christmas. I asked hubby to take me to the MAC store in SF for my birthday. He said he would and I could spend $100 there! We’re also going to lunch in SF, there are a few restaurants that were on the Food Network The Best Thing I Ever Ate that we want to check out. Tyler Florence said the best seafood Cobb he ever ate is at Neiman Marcus and I’ve been wanting to try it.

  7. Christy Peeples DuBois says:

    The only thing I want for Christmas is for my daughters to be happy with their Christmas gifts. I so enjoy watching them open gifts!!

  8. Karla says:

    I want way too much for Christmas! What I’d really like is a nice diamond ring. Been with my boyfriend for, 11 years.

    I have 2 awesome brothers and 7 amazing sisters πŸ˜€

  11. Lydia says:

    I have never hung out with my neighbors.

  12. Alison M says:

    I am AMAZING at fixing things around the house. (And I have no problem bragging about it.) A natural handy-woman. This spring I replaced our kitchen sink and re-fit the plumbing, then repaired our irrigation system and installed a pump. I also measured, fit, and installed a hard floor in our master walk-in closet this summer. The more work I do around the house myself, the less we are paying for a handyman. Girl power! And more monies for all the lipsticks! πŸ˜‰

    • Karen says:

      That’s so awesome, Alison! I WISH I were better at handy stuff. Truth be told, neither El Hub nor I are very handy around the house. El Hub tries, bless his heart, but it doesn’t always turn out according to plan.

  13. Katrina says:

    This year I’m being way too practical and there really isn’t anything that I want for Christmas. Just want to be in my warm, cozy house with the hubby watching Christmas movies, etc.

  14. Rebecca Yeh says:

    I haven’t seen my brother or talked to him in 5 months, I miss him so much!

  15. Mrs B says:

    Last night for dinner we had lasagna and veggies. πŸ™‚

  16. Gloria says:

    For Christmas, I think I will treat myself to one of the Nars audacious lipsticks(in the color Anna or any other nude one). I’ve been dying to try them out.

  17. Ms. Elise says:

    I don’t remember what I had for dinner last night, because I’m sick enough I can’t taste anything, and what I do taste, tastes bad. πŸ™

  18. Rachel says:

    I have one older brother and one younger brother. My older brother is a drummer and younger brother is trying to follow in his footsteps!

  19. Icequeen81 says:

    For Christmas I want to spend the Christmas with my loved ones a tiny reunion the 4 of us, including the pups.

    Yeah I am good fixing thing at home, I always was very independent and resourceful about that.

  20. Last night we ate deli sandwiches, not feeling like cooking lately after taking care of 2 sick kids all week.

    I’ve read the reviews that say Mockingjay Part 1 isn’t as good as the other movies. You know what? I don’t care. Going to see it anyway. We’re waiting until this coming weekend so that we can see it with the DD (Dear Daughter) while visiting her for T-Day. I didn’t think I could make it until she came home in December after finals.
    Made an Afghan influenced lamb and pumpkin stew for dinner last night. Looks like the DH and I will be eating leftovers for the next few days.

  31. Abby says:

    I have one older brother. He’s 6yrs. older than me. I’m actually adopted from S.Korea and was adopted into a Caucasian family. Although we’re siblings by adoption, he’s like a blood brother to me. Even though we’re in our 30’s sometimes we act like we’re still kids. We fight a lot, but at the same time get along great! We do like to do fun things together. Especially eating at new restaurants! We’re big food people!lol Even though he can get on my nerves, I love him and can’t imagine my life without him!

  32. Stephanie says:

    I WOULD never hang out with my neighbors. I really don’t appreciate them and their stupid OLD air-conditioner HAHA !! AH and I don’t like the way ALL OF MY NEIGHBORS are doing their renovation while and on my mid-session at the university damn !! πŸ™

  53. CatG says:

    I’m really looking forward to Christmas this year. My brother will have just graduated from university, it’s my nephew’s first, my mom brother and I already have a Sunday picked to decorate the house and I’ve already made a big dent into my Christmas shopping. This Christmas is also a big deal for me because I’ll have lost around 60 pounds since the last Christmas! For Christmas, I just want the whole family to be together, no food drama, no relationship drama, just carefree and happy people all around!

  54. Aurelie Red says:

    For Christmas, I would like good food and friends !

  55. margarita says:

  56. Sarah W says:

    I’m really looking forward to seeing my family for Christmas, as they live far away!

  57. Kassie says:

    Cowboys… definitely cowboys. I live in the country so it’s kind of a given. ALTHOUGH… country singing cowboys is the best of both worlds, right?

  58. Tiffany says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! As far as hanging out with neighbors, nope! We had far too many neighbors who were obligated into our business in the last neighborhood, so we hide out in this one! Haha

  59. Lyndsey B. says:

    I want a Keurig for Christmas!

  60. susan says:

    Cowboys! They can rock it any way.

  61. Jessica says:

    I want way too much for Christmas! After I saw your reviews, I picked up the Guerlain Night At The Opera Meteorites- I want to collect them all! I’m also obsessed with the Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palette at Barneys and the Shupette Precious Glitter Set (I have the adorable palette).

  62. Sandra Watts says:

    Hello, I’m in the Upstate New York area and it is so cold here lately. Where are you located? Is it cold there too. We have just a slight cover of snow so far. I hear it is supposed to warm up. I hope so, at least for a little while. Anyway, thanks for the opportunity to win this. It would be great for going toward Christmas gifts this year. I have three wonderful grandchildren to buy for. Happy Holidays to you.

  63. Lisa Foster says:

    I am fortunate and have really great neighbors, they are some of my best friends. We hang out, celebrate special occasions together and help each other out with dog care. I am very lucky.

  64. shelly peterson says:

    I do not hang out with my neighbors and I had Chicken Adobo for dinner last night

  65. Amoure says:

    Hey Karen,
    I have yet to see Mockingjay , but I am looking forward to it because I’m a Hunger Games fan for sure. From the previews I watched of the movie I liked the setting , because it was a totally different feel for the movie. It was nice to be taken out of the wooded areas and into different surroundings – I look forward to watching the movie.

    For Christmas my list is pretty lengthy and most are makeup purchases: Ambient highlighter, LORAC Pro Palette, a few of the Sephora lip stains (especially 01) and a couple of other things. Also, I’d like a rose gold Coach boyfriend watch and a Coach purse.

  66. Tiffanee Simar says:

    Do you ever hang out with your neighbors?
    — No ma’am I do not.

    What would you like for Christmas?
    — A new job. I’ve got an interview this coming Tuesday!

    Are you good at fixing things around the house?
    — Depends on what needs fixing.

    Cowboys or rockstars?
    — Cowboys who don’t mind a little rock’n’roll!

    Do you have any brothers? What are they like?
    — I have one little brother, and he is my life. He’s 16, almost 17, and he is a complete character. We are 8 years apart, but I still call him when I need someone to cheer me up.

    What did you have for dinner last night?
    — Sadly, nothing πŸ™

  67. Maja says:

    I love Christmas time! My favourite part of it is making family and friends happy with a thoughtfull gift.

  68. Jessi says:

    What I want for Christmas this year is a toss up between Naked3 and TooFaced’s Chocolate Bar.

  69. Solangel says:

    I’ve yet to see Mockingjay, can’t wait though!

  70. Sofia says:

    Last night me and my friends joined for an indian cooking evening, dispite all the mess in the kitchen, it was delicious!

  71. I would like a new karaoke machine or weekend trip to a ski lodge. I don’t ski. I just want to snuggle by a fire place drinking hot toddys.

  72. Alexis says:

    Eating a filet o’fish in my room while watching Pollock is a great way to relax on a Saturday afternoon!

    I don’t hang out with my neighbors…

  81. Kelly H says:

    Thanks for the Mockingjay review, will probably wait until it comes out on DVD just because don’t have the funds to go to the movies. What I would like for Christmas is to see happiness on my kids faces as they enjoy the day.

  82. y. says:

  124. Sandy says:

    Yes, we do hang out with our neighbours and always have a good time! I don’t have a brother but wish I did. I can’t wait to swatch some of the Hourglass lipsticks now that I’ve seen your post, they may go on my wishlist.

  125. Marisa says:

    I have a “little” brother, but I actually call him my big little brother, because “little” really isn’t an apt description of the monstrous reality. He plays college football, and greatly resembles a large boulder nowadays. But now that we aren’t caged under the same roof I actually love him a lot and think he’s a pretty funny, cool guy. I love hanging out with him now, but one night in the same house and the mutual animosity is back on, full intensity πŸ˜›

  126. Sherry says:

    I would love a bottle of Chanel #19 for Christmas this year. It’s my all-time favorite fragrance. I had a delicious chicken cheese steak for dinner. It was yummy!! Thanks for having this giveaway Karen!!

  134. jen. says:

    I have a brother! He’s my “little” brother but about 8″ taller than I am. And he’s a cop so he looks all tough and stuff and everyone always thinks he’s my older brother, which irritates me SO MUCH. Ha.

    Hi, Karen!

    I have 2 answers! I have 2 brothers, one is older and the other is younger (yup, I’m in the middle and the only girl). We have always been very close and since my Dad passed, we have gotten even closer. My older brother is in the Airforce, deployed and away right now and my younger brother packed up his things and moved to California to pursue an acting career. We’re from Maryland. I miss them dearly! We have beaucoup inside jokes and silly ways that we’ve carried into our adulthood. What I want for Christmas is for them to be able to come home. I know my Mom misses them too. We rarely all get to be together. The last time was for my wedding earlier this year, but sometimes we can go 2-3 years without all being together. That’s what I want for Christmas most. Well…that, a new wine cabinet, a puppy and of course, MAKE UP lol! Sorry for being long winded. I hope your holidays are wonderful and filled with family and lots of love πŸ™‚

    β€’ Are you good at fixing things around the house? Nope!
    β€’ Cowboys or rockstars? Rockstars, definitely. Not that I think they’d be loyal… but cowboys….I wouldn’t know what to talk about.
    β€’ Do you have any brothers? What are they like? I have a half-brother. I don’t know him very well.
    β€’ What did you have for dinner last night? Pizza!

    I am loving this look. So much so I’m placing an order for the Viva Glam 2 Lipstick and Lipglass!! I already have the Too Faced Sugar and Spice palette (one of my favorites released this holiday) so I REALLY can’t wait to have everything I need to duplicate your gorgeous look!! I greatly appreciate that you detailed the entire look below the picture so I know exactly what you have on – such a great idea!! I wish more people did that. I signed up for your newsletter, although it might be a bad idea because ever time I come on your page I end up ordering makeup RIGHT after!! I just ordered the Mac PG collection eyeshadow duo in Cinder and the Light English Red lipstick because of how stunning you looked with that look too (and for the packaging of course, HELLO

    I barely know my neighbors. One insists on throwing an open house every Christmas Eve, which is an odd mix of his blended family and neighbors. I know it’s nice of him but its always awkward because none of us having anything in common except the neighborhood. I never want to go but my husband, who is Mr. Social, always insists we at least go have a drink. Sigh.

  240. Trude E. says:

    I have two younger brothers who have been bigger than me since middle school. It’s always been a interesting dynamic, the one who is two years younger has acted like an older brother in many ways (like scaring away guys in high school!). And growing up with two siblings meant we were constantly changing alliances. πŸ™‚

  241. I don’t talk to my neighbors. We live in apartments and I think thats the point… so you dont have to be friendly with the rando next door with the whiny dog/baby. haha.
