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

Published in: Giveaways, Just For Fun

A Makeup and Beauty Blog giveaway

Tabs the Cat for Makeup and Beauty Blog


Yikes! I’m glad I didn’t have a nightmare last night. I thought I might because of the movie El Hub and I went to see, You’re Next.

Um, scary? Thank goodness I watched an episode of New Girl when we got home afterward. It helped to refill my head with happy thoughts before bed.

In other news, how’s it going today? Happy Saturday to ya.

I haven’t been up long. I stayed in bed for a few minutes after waking to pet Tabs and listen to the sound of silence outside…until I could no longer resist the idea of a hot cup of coffee, which I’m making now.

Got another great giveaway for you this weekend for a $50 eGift card to Sephora. Tabs is very happy with his modeling spread at the top. He felt the photographer really did a good job capturing his soulful eyes. πŸ™‚

Good luck, and have a wonderful day, babe. Maybe I’ll see you on Twitter or Facebook today.

    I could never pick just one favorite pair of shoes! Not fair!

  2. Ellen says:

    I had salmon sashimi with salmon rolls – yum!

  3. Yelena says:

    you’re so brave, I can never go watch scary movies. New Girl always puts me in a good mood, and the mindy project of course! cannot wait for the next season.
    p.s. speaking of Sephora, did you pick up any of the SOPI polishes that are on sale (3/$10) I would be interested to see your pics and reviews. I’ve gotten 4 but only tried one of them so far πŸ˜€

  4. Kellyn says:

    My favorite pair of shoes is my nude Steve Madden flats. They’re very simple but I wear them almost every day because they go with everything πŸ™‚

  5. Cherie Montorio says:

    My favorite pair of shoes are my black Nine West heels.

  6. Susan says:

    Lancome’s Gloss in Love has renewed my love of gloss. πŸ™‚

  7. Agata says:

    Hi Karen. My favorite pair of shoes are my brown suede boots with little sparkly jewels on the side. They were a ton of money but I have had them for 4 years and they are still in great shape!

  8. Hey Karen, thanks for another Saturday giveaway! Let’s see, which of your questions shall I answer this time… My favorite pair of shoes are blackened dirty gray. They’re cute booties with a very high heel from Rocket Dog!

    I love lip plumping products! My favorites are the Buxom Lip Cream lip glosses!

  10. Sarah says:

    Lazy lazy dinner last night – pizza!

  11. Rebecca Cash says:

    Pizza Hut for supper πŸ™

  12. Mallory B says:

    My eyebrows are TOTALLY different shapes. My left eyebrow is perfect, I love where the arch is, it’s long enough, but neither my waxist nor I can get the right one to match up. It’s okay though, eyebrows are merely sisters, not twins!

  13. Samantha Lim says:

    I hate doing my brows, they never match. I know people say brows are sisters not twins, but I think mine are at most, step-sisters.

  14. Vanessa says:

    My favourite pair of boots is gray! They’re pretty worn out and unfortunately I’m having so much trouble finding another gray pair I like in stores πŸ™

  15. mamotts says:

    Love this blog- the ideas and intros to new products.

  16. Kori M says:

    I had Annie’s organic mac & cheese and a big salad for dinner last night, yummy!!!

  17. Gabriela Arteaga says:

    Last night I had my favorite!!! White rice, roasted sea weed, and peanut cream soup.

  18. Avery says:

    Its boring but my black flats are my absolute favorite

  19. Aditi says:

    I always like my Wet n Wild eyeshadows. For the price, their quality just can’t be beat! They do shimmers extremely well; the mattes are not so impressive.

  20. Amber says:

    Costco pizza last night to break my non gluten diet! Yum!

  21. Anna says:

    Thank you for the giveaway! Fingers crossed because I need to pickup a new tube of my MUFE full cover concealer. How it’s lasted me a full 9 months, I have no idea. It’s truly been my best friend this year πŸ™‚

  22. Kharrissa Thorne says:

    I wanted to return Jouer Essential Lip Enhancer, because of it’s fake rose smell. After paying return shipping, my refund wouldn’t have been worth the effort.

  23. Megan Johnson says:

    I’m obsesssssed with tinted moisturizer.

  24. Kay says:

    My favorite shoes are red, but I haven’t been able to find them πŸ™

  25. Laurinha says:

    Hi Karen!
    Hv a sunny weekend!

  26. Ambritt G says:

    Haha yes my brows never match, I have to spend time filling them in and combing them out, just to make them look sort of similar. πŸ˜‰

  27. Grace says:

    My brows are always different, but honestly I think I am the only one that notices! As long as they are both tidy, I’m fine with it πŸ™‚

  28. Sarah W says:

    My favorite shoes are brown merrell sandals! I can walk anywhere in them.

  29. Melissa says:

    I was born with 2 different shaped eyebrows! Drives me nuts. If it wasn’t for pencilling them in, I would look horrible.

  30. I hate scary movies. I don’t even think watching something happy afterwards would prevent nightmares. I had to stop watching some episodes of criminal minds because I’d get too wrapped up then the episode would feature in my nightmares!

  31. sweeks1980 says:

    I have one eyebrow where the hair grows in two different directions. It is very annoying (for me and for whoever is doing my brows)!

  32. Lydia says:

    My favorite shoes are black!

  33. Heidi says:

    Yeah, I always have to work hard to make my brows look like they belong on the same face. Not my favorite beauty task.

  34. Anneri says:

    My fave shoes are a pair of Converse with a blue and red tartan pattern. Love!

  35. Joni says:

    Hi Karen, for dinner last night me & my fiance had a lasagna with garlic bread! Delish πŸ™‚

  36. Jennifer Pham says:

    I had some of this amazing coconut sherbet from Costco! It was housed within a coconut shell bowl . . . delicious

  37. Pam says:

    Oh the things I could buy…

  38. nadia says:

    I had Blackened Tilapia fish tacos with chili lime sour cream and guacamole with a black bean and corn salsa! They were sooo good! And this morning we made homemade french toast with delicions challah bread. All that cooking is tiring, I could use some new blush from Sephora πŸ˜‰

  39. Stephanie says:

    The weekly giveaways you provide are awesome; thanks so much!

    Hmmm…which question to answer? I’ll discuss dinner. Went to a (relatively) new restaurant last night w/ a group of girlfriends. Food was amazing, but service was HORRIBLE (I.e. 30 minutes to get a glass of wine!)

  40. Tiffanie says:

    I waited until after my 5 mile run to have my first cup of coffee this morning which made it that much more glorious.

  41. May says:

    I’m going to comment telling you I am at the library right now… not fair!

  42. Amy says:

    Just returned from Target with a tube of the Sonia Kashuk satin luxe lipstick! I had every intention of buying the pinky beige but in person it was a little too beige for little ol’ fair-skinned me. So I opted for the Nude Pink and it’s perfect. You weren’t jokin about the moisturizing effect. I love it!

    Also I swear by Neutrogena, but I’ve wanted to return stuff from their Naturals line. I love the idea they’re going for but the night cream smelled like candy and was so goopy. It was awful. And then I lost the receipt πŸ™ So now it’s gathering dust on my bathroom vanity lol

  43. Casey says:

    My natural brows are a little different–my left has more of an arch than the right. But I just had them waxed last week so now they’re almost identical, with the exception of a tiny sparse spot on my left brow!

  44. Maddie says:

    I’m such a scaredy cat!! I can’t sit through a horror movie. New girl is my favorite though

  45. millie says:

    i wanted to try perricone skincare but i got a sample first and boy was that stinky! fishy smelling. too bad.

  46. Erin says:

    I want to like lip plumping products, but I feel like all they do is make my already pigmented lips even darker. Which is drag in particular when it’s a nude shade πŸ™‚

  47. Sara says:

    Favorite pair of shoes are kind of boring but so so fabulous: Nude strappy Prada heels — the best investment because they go with everything!

  48. camille says:

    ooooh! thanks karen and tabs!

    my most FAVOURITE pair of shoes are my patent ruby red BCBG almond toe heels. they’re the PERFECT shade of red, and the heel isn’t super hooker high, so it’s not hurting my feet (too badly). i wore them when The Man and i got married. i should have bought a second pair, as a back up. *sigh*
    happy weekend to you all!!!!!

  49. Lisa Brown says:

    I had a veggie and cheese omelet for dinner

  50. Kim Pincombe Cole says:

    My go-to lip plumper (for years!) has been Lip Fusion in ‘Fresh’ ~ shade is very similar to Nars Orgasm…

  51. Andrea Amy says:

    my favourite shoes are a pair of Keens sandals that are pink. Love them.

  52. C Williams says:

    This would be a great Christmas gift.

  53. Icequeen81 says:

    I had a shoarma last night , my fave shoes are vans bailerinas thet are white and purple

  54. Josefin says:

    This gift card would be very welcome as I’m planning on getting one of the new NARS blush palettes. They look so gorgeous!

  55. sienna says:

    i have tons of colorful shoes i never wear.. pink. mink green. and instead, i just wear black boots in cold weather and flip flops in warm.

  56. Olivia K says:

    Hawaiian pizza for dinner last night!

  57. Bianca Rogoveanu says:

    I ate pasta last night and, yes, i have different eyebrows, who doesn’t?!! Haha

  58. Bethanie says:

    Great giveaway!

  59. Brittany M says:

    This gift card would be amazing! I’m in the midst of testing out foundations at Sephora, and after this week I look like a foundation hoarder! I’m going to be a bridesmaid in my cousin’s wedding but definitely need to bring my own makeup the day of the wedding for the MUA. So many products make me break out, so I don’t want to take any chances! So far Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder foundation seems to be the frontrunner.

  60. Betsy Clark says:

    Yay for Labor Day weekend and yay for cats & dogs!

  61. Amy M. says:

    I had deep dish sausage pizza last night for dinner and I’m eating the leftovers right now as we speak!

  62. GB says:

    My favorite heels are red, of course!

  63. As much as I hate to se summer go, I am really looking forward to fall colors and trends…boots here I come!

  64. KRISTA says:

    Last night was Pizza Friday!

  65. Ashton says:

    I really wanted to like Philosophy’s Hope in a Jar because I love the Purity cleanser but I could NOT get over the smell of it so back to Sephora it went.

  66. Grace Gonzales says:

    I hope I win!

  67. Roxanne says:

    I’d rather stay at home and finish my book, but alas, work calls. Also, I’m getting sick…I just may go home after all.

  68. Wenz says:

    My natural brows are cousins….. one with the perfect triangle & other with perfect arch. One has perfect beginning, other very sparse…..Thank the Lord for eyebrow pencils… I get to leave the house making them look like sisters!!!!

  69. meredith says:

    Soulful eyes of indeed! Heart ya, tabs.

  70. Leeann says:

    I love cats!

  71. Carissa says:

    thanks for the giveaway!

  72. Petunia says:

    It is way too hot to eat. Drinking copious amounts of iced tea.

  73. Melissa says:

    My eyebrows are the same but I cant close just my right eye without scrunching up my face. It makes it so i cant properly ‘wink’ without looking like popeye. It also makes applying eyeliner on my left eye a breeze since it’ll close normally with one eye still open. Not so much on my right. It drives me nuts!

  74. Justine says:

    I’m debating whether to hem a floor-length bridesmaid dress or to buy taller shoes.

  75. Yette says:

    Hi Karen! I really, really love your blog. & I wish I have a cat as cute as Tabs. I hope to meet you soon & more power to your blog! πŸ™‚

  78. Anna says:

    Currently I’m auditioning lipsticks for my BFF’s wedding tomorrow. I”m wearing a long dark purple bridesmaid dress. Having a hard time choosing a lip look. I want to do a classic red, but not sure…

  79. cristina says:

    Yes I want this!

  80. Heather USA (Rafflecopter: Rosie Areola) says:

  81. cristina says:

  82. Valentina says:

  83. Stephanie Ann says:

    my favorite pair of shoes are leopard print!

  84. Miki says:

    I can’t stop wearing my bright orange heels – they brighten up any outfit!

  86. PINAR DERNEK says:

  87. Solangel says:

    Favorite pair of shoes….comfy Converse, really!

  88. Lisa says:

    i don’t mind uneven brows as much as i do waking up with uneven eyelids (some days one double lid, one mono lid, other days both double lids)

  89. meganlisa says:

    I love the photo!!!! Those cat eyes!

  90. Jenna D says:

    I was so excited to try the L’oreal BB cream and the scent was just way too strong that it gave me migraines. Blah

  98. Holly B says:

    Ha, one brow is definitely different than the other as a result of self-piercing when I was a teen. Oh well, there are worse scars to have πŸ™‚

  99. Hannah says:

    In love with Nars’ New Lover pencil, but hate having to resharpen! Who even has sharpen-able lip pencils nowadays?

  100. Melissa says:

    I didn’t think I would ever like/want any lip plumping products, but surprisingly, bareMinerals’ Moxie lipglosses give just a bit of plump and make my lips look fabulous!

  101. Amber Kay says:

    My favorite pair of shoes is colour black!

    Once again i try my luck this week Karen in the hope of winning! X

  102. Katrina says:

    I can’t make my eyebrows match no matter what I do. I’ll go to the grave still battling those things. Grr!

  103. Brandi says:

    my eyebrows are shaped differently, not sure if this is a common issue but my right brow is much more flat whereas the left brow has such a nice arch to it. No matter what, plucking/waxing, I can never get them to perfectly match.

  104. Maggie says:

    Yup, my brows don’t match. That’s okay though–it’s a common thing.

  105. Colleen Boudreau says:

    My fave pair of shoes are black.

  106. Erin says:

    Last night I had a really vivid dream about buying nude lipstick. I think it’s a sign.

  109. krystle says:

    would be perfect timing for my bday!!

  110. Karla says:

    My brows don’t match each other at all! One has a very subtle rounded curve and the other has a defined arch. I always cover one with my bangs, though, so it’s fine. πŸ˜›

  111. Supriya says:

    my favorite color shoes are black, I own so many black shoes!!

  112. Mardi says:

    I love my red suede wedges!

  113. auroragyps says:

    My right eyebrow grows sparser & slower at the outer corner, because that’s the side I sleep on the most. Sleeping on my right side also effects the way the lashes on my right eye grows, making them bend along the upper lash line and leaving a gap in the lashes. Makes putting on mascara and getting both sides to look even a real pain in the ass.

  114. Brittany says:

    I am OBSESSED with new girl!! I love Jess’s personality! Seriously, best show… Well and Big Bang theory haha.

  115. Aida says:

    I think tomorrow I’ll go by a Chanel counter to pick up no. 20 of the Les Beiges powders to use as a touch up powder throughout the day. Because why not feel fancy doing that, right? πŸ˜€
    I hope you’re having a great weekend!

  116. Susan T. says:

  120. yanet59 says:

    My favorite perfume is Ô de Lancôme πŸ™‚

  121. Lynn says:

    My fav shoes are black flat/loafers…they’re totally weared out, but i can’t find any similar replacements for the. The style and shape, was perfect.

  122. Leonora says:

    Hi Karen,

    People usually say that brow are sisters but not twins…well I think mine are just friends…they are so different from each other and no matter how much I’ve tried to reshape them similarly…I now gave up…I guess they don’t look that bad…or that’s what I hope

  123. Kristy M says:

    I have to rave about MUFE Aqua Brow! It is by far the BEST eyebrow product I have ever tried! I remember your previous blog about it and your reviews helped convince me to try it out… Thank you! πŸ™‚

    Oooh, if I win I will definitely buy some more! Thanks for the opportunity!

  124. My brows are sooo bad right now, I really need to pop into the salon to get them done!

  135. Debbie says:

    Happy Saturday!

  136. Charlene says:

    Happy Saturday! I’ve been working most of the day, shopped a little bit the rest. I <3 using Nars Mekong to fill out my eyebrows. So much more natural looking than a pencil.

  160. Cel says:

    Hi Karen, never knew you were Filipino until I was searching for local bloggers to follow and your post Brown Skin is Beautiful Skin popped up, which is BTW amazing.

    I was definitely one of the many people made to believe that light skin was beautiful but I know better now.

    Since people might misunderstand this comment, I’m not saying brown skin is beautiful and light skin isn’t, they are equal.

  161. Sophy says:

    My favorite pair of shoes are green-blue. I love them.

    I love these giveaways, now if only I could win one πŸ™‚ hmm I do have one eyebrow different from the other, partly due to over-zealous plucking and the other I have a scar underneath it so it looks a little odd at times. My favourite pair of shoes are a light tan/beige pair of heeled ankle boots, I have worn them non-stop this past winter and they will take me all through spring and summer which is great.

    Hello K & T!
    I’m feeling today like a cat, my energy totally drained and I’m having catnaps all over the house. It’s funny because I sit half an hour in one place and the next minute my eyes starts to shut, and next thing I know is my husband rubbing my belly or massaging my feet to wake me up to take me to the couch for another short nap. I guess we all need to be a cat from time to time.

    I guess this is a safe place where I can confess the major beauty blunder yesterday:

    So it was Merdeka day in Malaysia, or Independence Day. To celebrate it me and my beau decided to go on a road trip visiting all the historical landmarks. It was all so good. But then I looked at the photos. In every single one of them, my left brow started about 2 inches in compared to my right brow! OMG! It’s the most terrifying thing ever! My brows are so light in color, and I definitely colored in too enthusiastically and plain wrongly.

    Never again.

    Guess I can only show the pics from that trip only of my side profile. LOL

  222. Louise Ito says:

    My left eyebrow is always thinner and less defined than my right one >.< annoying.

    I dislike lip plumping products because they contain menthol(which plumps lips due to the irritation they cause) and they're drying. A normal lipgloss or creamy lipstick is enough to highlight my lips πŸ˜€

    About my skin care. I had bought a full line of Estee Lauder’s skin care. I was not happy with the way it working on my face. Embarrassingly, I returned it. It was tons of money in products. I Then, made the switch to Chanel’s skin care and loved it! Not only do I love the way Chanel’s skin care smells, it works AhMazingly! I get compliments all the time about how firm my skin is.

    Karen You have no idea the epic battle I Have with my eyebrows on a daily basis, I have thin hair, sparse hair there and on top of that they’re 2 different shapes so when I fill them in I have to make sure they’re more or less the same because I know eyebrows are supposed to be cousins not sisters.

  231. Ingrid Hughes says:

    These giveaways are great!! I wish I’d win one, there isn’t a Sephora in my city so it would be an exciting trip to get some goodies!!
    Eyebrows, hmmm I’ve never in my life plucked a single hair and I’ve only recently started using an eyebrow pencil. They’re quite light coloured as I’m blonde and I’ve got a few stray hairs but I’ve never plucked them.

  246. Kim Richards says:

    One of the best beauty bargains at the drug store are the Wet and Wild Color Icon 8 pan palletes- one of my all time favorites is the Comfort Zone palette! I can create endless looks with this palette and the shadows are so incredibly pigmented, smooth, creamy and easy to blend. Another fabulous one is the Petal Pusher palette- I’m such a sucker for anything and everything purple!! I’m actually wearing it today with my Amazing Cosmetics matte blush in Pink Chocolate. So natural and wearable and it doesn’t compete with my eye look! Xoxox

They went to the beach, to the mall, to the park, for ice cream and even to a concert! No regrets! πŸ™‚

So my left eyebrow grows in a spiral at the end which makes it difficult when tweeting so I end up just having it all waxed off and feel it in, but it’s a trait my grandfather had so it reminds me of him.

  303. Lesleyk says:

    Yes, my brows are shaped differently, but what’s more annoying is that right brow goes nuts and has so many strange, stray hairs. It’s so much harder to keep the right brow groomed.

  304. Laura says:

    I was at a bbq yesterday, so I had a cheeseburger with havarti cheese, yum!

  305. Michelle M says:

    My favorite pair of shoes are metallic flats. I find I can wear them with almost anything. A few years ago I had a silver pair. When those got worn out I ended up replacing them with a gold pair. This year I think I may need a new pair. Whatever is on sale will do.

  306. Jolie says:

    My end of my left brow is slightly thinner than my right because of a scar that I got when I was younger!

    Hi Karen
    Back in the day when I worked full time in retail, I bought a lot at Sephora and quickly achieved VIB. But then I quit my job and eventually went back to school, and was broke and could only afford the basics – and bought a lot of stuff at MAC. But I’m in my last year of school, and I’m working more hours, so today I FINALLY achieved VIB again! And now they have VIB Rouge, that’s my next goal.

  313. Sarah says:

    One of my brows is most definitely different than the other. I had my left one pierced in college and it bleached out the surrounding hairs. They’re back to normal color now, but still don’t grow in quite right.

    Once, I got a sample of some expensive fancy serum from Nordstrom that smelled like dead fish. I managed to use it on my face only once….. Ugh it could work miracles but I couldn’t use something that smelled like that!

  317. Rachel says:

    Right now I’m really excited because my own humble blog has been getting a lot more traffic recently. Nothing compared to the numbers you see, I’m sure, but it made me feel like someone besides was looking at all my posts about beauty and food!

  318. Jamie C. says:

    I’m a very picky person when it comes to smells in my skincare so if doesn’t say it’s fragrance-free on the bottle/container, but if doesn’t I always make sure to smell it before I buy it because If the product works for me and a smell it has to be a very minimal smell that fades after I put it on.

  324. Sherry says:

    That’s a good question about eyebrows being different. My brows are definitely different from each other. My left brow is actually shorter than my right. I’m missing hair on the very end, but I’m not sure why. I don’t know what happened, but they’ve been that way for a long time. I don’t even bother extending the left one, because most of the time my hair kind of covers the brow. Lucky for me!! Thanks for having another Sephora giveaway Karen!! Sephora rocks!! Woo Hoo!!

  325. Rachael says:

    One of my brows is actually slightly lighter in color than the other. So I trim the darker eyebrow so it doesn’t look like the color is mismatched.

    Favorite shoes now and forever after will have to be the light brown brogues i got from my mom. Comfortable, stylish and has sentimental value. Dinner last night was pork stew (sinigang na baboy) and red rice with the boyfriend.

    Thanks for this awesome giveaway. Even if I don’t win (because I’m kinda unlucky when it comes to these kinds of things), joining will be worth it because I just discovered another beauty blog (by a fellow Filipina! My heart!) worth following.

    I do have one funky brow! I have a scar in half of my left brow from when I was 2 years old. My parents set up a plastic slide in the living room. I went down it, and midway down I stood up and ran down. The momentum made me start falling forward and I slammed head-first into the coffee table. Oops.

    I have both red and purple shoes that I love.

  349. Maureen says:

    I made Whiskey Sliders for dinner last night.

  350. Christine says:

    I had a sauce-free veggie pizza for dinner. It was really good, but I don’t think the eggplant agreed with my stomach. D’oh.

  351. Katherine says:

    Last night for dinner we made One-Pan Farro from Smitten Kitchen, but subbed barley for farro, and added local chanterelle mushrooms. I bet you would like the recipe, it’s vegetarian and can be fat free, but it’s oh-so-satisfying. We also made an apple-blackberry crisp for dessert (modified a recipe from Oh She Glows) with fruit picked in our yard and made homemade whipped cream to go on top. It was divine.

    I just got back from Vegas! Have fun! One thing I can recommend is not to go to Spa Mandalay at Mandalay Bay. After I checked in, I got to listen to 20+ minutes of two employees bitching about another employee while they were folding towels. They were so loud that it drown out the music and the tv. : ( Not quite the relaxing spa experience I was hoping for, especially given the price.

  353. Sarah says:

    It was my birthday on Saturday so my boyfriend and I spent a day at the beach. At first the weather was overcast but the sun came out in the afternoon and it was a great day!

  354. Jennifer O. says:

    I am loving the St. Ives moisturizer lately. I don’t know how it got by me before this. It’s cheap and really effective!

  355. Laney says:

    My favorite shoes are red!

  358. Shawn Marshall says:

    Happy Long Weekend! One of my favorite lip plumping products and just clear lip glosses is Physician’s Formula Plump Potion – I tend to buy one whenever it is on sale. I also love that is stays on the lips for a long time – lasting power is great.

  359. Linda says:

    My favorite shoes are red, isn’t everyone’s?

  360. Lora says:

    Speaking of shoes, I just got a really cute pair of wedges from Target for only$10.48!

  361. Rachel says:

    I just got over having the flu & I feel so much better!

  362. Janet G. says:

    I love the Stila plumping lip glaze! I don’t reallly have thin lips, but I love how it goes on and lasts πŸ™‚

  363. ShannoninBC says:

    I once purchased a chanel pro lumiere foundation and returned it because I couldn’t get past the perfumey smell and it didn’t perform to my expectation of a high end foundation. I do love a lot of chanel products but hate the perfumey scent of them. My budget beauty product is definitely wet n wild polishes, they wear like iron and have such great finishes! Good luck everyone πŸ™‚

  364. kel h says:

    My favevshoes are my tried and true Dr. Martens they have lasted me thre many years of clubs and fun

  365. steph b says:

    My brows are definitely different from each other. I’ve tried to style each one like the other and neither way looks right. So, I stick with my mis-matched pair!

  366. Karrie says:

    Happy Labor Day!

  367. Jen says:

    Went to Sephora yesterday to get matched and got the new Marc Jacobs gel foundation and an urban decay brush. Love!

    Ahahaha. Poor Tabs. Picking my favorite pair of shoes is impossible, but I do love my black Shoemint combat boots. And my cowboy boots (southern girl problems.) And all of my sandals. You see what you did here, Karen?

  379. Deborah says:

    Nope, never had to return anything due to smell, but I had a sample of philosophy’s hope in a jar night moisturizer that smelled REALLY weird.

  380. Greta Diem says:

    My favorite shoes are black combat boots. (I actually have them in three colors)

  385. Laura says:

    My favorite shoes my pink flats

  386. Bee Ren says:

    I walked through the mall today and nearly bought a gorgeous black vest with leather trim. I don’t have any vests and I can’t even remember the last time I wore one!

    It looks something like this – http://www.danier.com/leather-women-tops-vests-112050003-P6703.aspx and worked almost like a corset! I have a hard time buying things for full price though so I decided to sleep on it and walked away.

  387. J rossouw says:

    My fav shoes are flip flops.

  388. Rebecca says:

    I love my red ballet flats!

    I love Navy colored shoes! They look so classy with everything!

  390. Caitie says:

    I’m pretty particular about scents, so I’ve most definitely purchased products and not been able to use them because of how they smelled! Not sure if I’ve returned any for that reason though or just passed them on to someone else.

  391. Julie Greenwood says:

    My favorite pair of shoes are a pair of brown Fendi cut out brogues that I have yet to wear. I can’t find the right outfit.

  392. Nastassia says:

    Hmmm… I had empanadas for dinner last night and they were so delicious!

  393. chibicheeks says:

    Sephora sales are so alluring! So many things I don’t need, but such a good deal!

  394. Hollie H says:

    My eyebrows are a bit different and it drives me batty. I can’t seem to make them twinsies.

  395. Natasha P. says:

    Again, can’t comment enough on how much I love this blog. Best beauty blog out there, and I’m ALWAYS well jel that you get to test out all the upcoming products before they come out, but always love to see the reviews before they do! Makeup. Is. Amazing. xo

  396. Stephanie says:

    My favorite pair of shoes are a pair of brown leather boots. Love me some brown leather boots.

  397. CW says:

    I don’t care how ugly it is, I love the color teal. Not kingfisher blue. Not robin’s egg. Teal. Even turquoise is a turn off. Teal is my soul color.

  398. Bonnie Kwon says:

    It would totally make my birthday month awesome if I won. πŸ˜€

  399. Cathy says:

  402. Julie Simpson says:

    I’m trying to find a signature scent and I have narrowed it down to Gucci guilty, fendi , and miss Dior

  403. Yessica says:

    This is a weird confession…. when I was in elementary school I used to “trim” my eyelashes -_- . My eyelashes now are not the shortest lashes ,but I always wonder if my eyelashes would be longer now if I hadn’t done that.

  404. Kristin says:

    My favorite shoes right now are black sandals.

  405. Ashley Aimi says:

    I would love to win this awesome giveaway!

  406. best beauty bargain these days is foam hair color!

  407. Jennifer says:

    If anything is too floral, I usually have to return it because it’ll give me a headache!

  408. Camille says:

    I’m pretty new to “high-class” makeup – I’ve always stuck to the drugstore! Not because I don’t want to spend money, it’s just that I feel like it’s a big gamble to spend $20-30 for one item if I’m not sure I’ll like it. I’m wondering if anyone has a stellar product that’s really worth the money? Thanks πŸ™‚

  409. Clemence says:

    Hope you had a great Labor Day!

  410. Tania G says:

    Tan colored Merrel sandals have been on my feet all summer long.

  412. Kristen N says:

    I can’t wait for the cooler weather! I am so ready for fuzzy blankets and books and leggings and boots!

  413. Nikki says:

    Hey Karen! Not sure if my comment posted from last night (eep!) so I’m commenting again to be sure πŸ™‚

    I tried doing a smokey eye for the first time Friday night. I’m just now embracing eyeshadow back into my routine after years of hating the creasy mess I would have to deal with. I’m SO happy UD came out with those wonderful primers.

    And my eyebrows are totally different shapes now. My eyebrow guru mother (she has been working in salons waxing my whole life!) has been helping me work on that. She’s amazing. She outlawed that over-plucked fad during the 90s/early 2000s and I am SO glad now.

  414. Lynda says:
