Blogging Babes: Meet Me Over at

Glamour Beauty Blog Interviews Makeup and Beauty Blog
I don’t do a whole lot of interviews (because no one ever asks, LOL!), but I did one this week for Beth over at Glamour’s beauty blog, The Girls in the Beauty Department.

In the interview I talk about blogging, beauty and the stick of purple Wet n’ Wild eyeliner that changed my life. Click here to see what that’s all about.

    Awww, such a cute interview. And a cute picture to boot πŸ™‚

  2. Audrey says:

    Great interview! One of my friends had a similar introduction to make-up with her mom at the Clinique counter. I think that is such a great idea!

  3. Chris says:

    Now how cool is that? You are in great company in that series and good to see you getting some recognition.

    Clinique was my first “real” makeover when I stepped from drugstore to department store. Somehow I always keep a Clinique Almost Brown eyeliner in my stash even though I rarely use it anymore (cause the super cool MA told me it was perfect for me lol).

  4. Dao says:

    Congrats, Karen! You are a superstar!

  5. Vanessa says:

    Congrats Karen! Gorgeous as always!

  6. Karen says:

    Hi Chris,

    Thank you. πŸ™‚ I am a big fan of that series, too, so it was nice to get asked to participate.

    Anyhoo, Almost Brown! That’s an old school goodie for me. Other old school Clinique favorites: New Clover blush, Raspberry Glace lipstick, Black Honey lipstick and Fawn Satin eyeshadow (remember when you could get it as single?). How about you?

  7. Karen says:

    Hi Dao,

    You are so sweet. πŸ™‚ I hope that your week is off to a good start. How’s school been? Has it eased up any for you?

  8. Karen says:

    Hi Vanessa,

    Thank you, hon!

    I hope you’re doing well. How’s the working out going? I think I’ll be able to sneak in a run today, finally!

  9. Wendy says:

    Thats really cool! You look lovely on the picture!

  10. Elle says:

    Great interview, Karen–and you look gorgeous in the picture too. I remember my makeup obsession started with some eyeliner too, that I probably applied in raccoon-like circles around my eyes–it’s so random what will get you hooked, eh? Love the new site layout as well! Have a great day!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Elle,

      I know for sure I looked like a purple-eyed raccoon, LOL. It was NOT cute! πŸ™‚

      Anyway, what’s going on with you this week? I’m already ready for Friday, ha ha…

  11. Stephie says:

    Woo! Congrats on getting interviewed. Did you style yourself for the picture or did the Glamour crew do you up? You looked very professionally chic πŸ™‚ Great interview too!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Stephie,

      Thanks! I took that pic myself from a few months ago. πŸ™‚ I think I was having a good hair day for once. Good hair creates minor miracles.

      How’s your day going?

  12. Amber says:

    This is awesome. You look adorable in the pic too! Congrats on the coverage… dang I wish Real Talk would get going already! Take care!

    Amber´s last blog post..Turns out… I AM AWESOME!!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Amber,

      Thank you for popping by and saying hi!

      I wish Real Talk would get going already, too. I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

      Oh, congrats on your upcoming trip to NY!

  13. lesley says:

    Hooray for you, Karen! πŸ™‚ That picture is so pretty! Did the folks at Glamour style you up or did you do the look yourself… because if that’s the case, a break down would be well appreciated! πŸ˜€

    I hope you have an especially good day today–most especially since the weather is pretty nice out!

  14. Very cool Karen, congrats! The pic is awesome also. πŸ™‚

  15. Chris says:

    Other Clinique faves: Superbalm, Glossy Natural mascara (been a while since I bought one though)and Delovely lipstick.
    I think some of us (ahem, meaning me) overlook Clinique sometimes for the great basics in the lineup.

  16. Katherine says:

    Congraulations, Karen! That’s awesome. πŸ™‚

    It was pretty good. I’ve been studying my Swedish (which was long overdue) so I feel accomplished today πŸ™‚ Just had a lovely dinner and they’re now off to watch Sister Act somewhere else so I can work some more πŸ™‚

  19. Amanda says:

    Hehe, cute interview! And ITA with the reader that left the third comment on the page – I check your blog like 3x a day too, lol. πŸ˜€

  24. Karen says:

    Hi Vampy Varnish,

    Thank you! πŸ™‚

    I hope your back is feeling better today.

  25. Karen says:

    Hi Chris,

    Have you tried their new High Impact Curling mascara? It’s actually really amazing!

    I will have to peep Delovely lipstick the next time I’m at the counter… that ones new to me.

  26. Karen says:

    Hi Katherine,

    Thanks! πŸ™‚

    How was your Tuesday?

  27. Karen says:

    Hi A. Rose,

    Thanks, hon! πŸ™‚ I hope you had a nice day today.

  28. Karen says:

    Hi Gio,

    Thank you!

  29. Karen says:

    Hi Karen B.,

    I think it’s so awesome that you can speak so many languages. I’ve heard Swedish a few times and it sounds really neat. How long have you been studying it?

  30. Karen says:

    Hi Amanda,

    Thank you! πŸ™‚ LOL, I sooo got lucky with that picture. It was a good hair day, for sure.

    How was your day?

  31. Karen says:

    Hi Briana,

    Thanks, hon!

  32. Karen says:

    Hi Lilan,

    You would look fabulous in Birthday Suit or Delta! πŸ˜‰

  33. Karen says:

    Hi Luv J.,

    Thanks! I wish I could get my own page, LOL!

    Did you have a good Tuesday?

  34. Karen says:

    Hi Catherine,

    Awww! You are so sweet! πŸ™‚

  35. Lilan says:

    I have Atoll – do you think it’s similar?

    I actually bought that one a long time ago and thought of our previous comment conversation about liquid shadow. I never did a review on it – what are your thoughts on the formula?

    Happy Fat Tuesday to you! Are you doing anything Mardi Gras-inspired today?

    • Karen says:

      Hi Lilan,

      I think Delta might be a bit more cool.

      The liquid shadow is definitely quick and easy! I also like how it doesn’t require fingers. The thinness of it might be challenging at first, but I think once you know what you’re working with then it gets easy.

      I wish I did something fun and Mardi-Gras inspired. I ended up just reading and going to sleep. How about you?

  36. lexi says:

    i enjoyed reading this at work – it made the rest of my day! we know have to share you with a wider audience – that is so awesome – you are inspiring to others who dream of turning their hobbies into a fabulous career!

    that being said, i need to get off my lazy butt and revise the ‘ol resume – i know i was supposed to get this done about a month ago!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Lexi,

      πŸ™‚ Thank you!

      Resumes are really challenging to write. I took mine out a month ago and I swear it was like a shot of stress right into my veins. Are you revamping yours because you’re considering a career change?

  37. lexi says:

    Your story reminded me the first time my mom caught me wearing makeup – I think she was more mad that i was wearing wet and wild so she bought me a maybelline palette and lipgloss! She pretty much was my enabler – I was wearing Lancome throught out high school – she bought my first red Dior lipstick at 15 – I did get spoiled and maybe this is why I can’t wear drugstore brands no matter how improved the brand has become…

    • Karen says:

      Hi Lexi,

      LOL! I remember so many eighth grade conversations starting with the words, “My mom caught me wearing makeup.” Ha ha ha!

      Do you still have any of that Lancome makeup? I held onto my Clinque stuff for a long time for sentimental reasons.

  38. Michelle says:

    Wow congrats, that must be so exciting! You look beautiful in your picture too.

    Clinique was my first department store brand makeup. I didn’t realize this was common! LOL

  39. Karen B says:

    Well, since I came here a bit more than a month ago. It’s pretty challenging I have to say because it’s really from scratch but I hope I can speak it a bit by the time I leave.

  40. ParisB says:

    Ooh I was so inspired by that picture of yours, I got the Clarins palette! πŸ˜€ Congrats on the interview. It was very “you” πŸ™‚

  41. Lehea says:

    This is awesome! I read Glamour, so it’s great to see a familiar face on their website. =)

  42. Elle says:

    Not much for this week, Karen–just getting some work-outs in and impatiently waiting for spring! I am completely ready for Friday too… πŸ™‚

  43. lexi says:

    ha OMG – i wish i held onto my favorite lancome lipsticks – actually that probably would be gross

    and yes i’m itching for a career change -actually i want a career and not just a job!!!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Lexi,

      I hear ya. I think it makes a difference when you’re really invested in your work. πŸ™‚ Then again, I gotta say having a gig where you can just leave your work at work and not have to take it home with you is a plus. I’ve had both types of jobs and they both have pros and cons.
