Comment to Win a $50 eGift Card From MAC! (Ends Monday)

Published in: Giveaways, Just For Fun


This giveaway is closed, and the winner has been contacted (CONGRATULATIONS, KAREN!!!), but check back next Saturday for another giveaway.


Good morning and happy Caturday! 😺


I hope you’re having a great morning so far. I’m just making myself some French toast and a cup of decaf green tea for breakfast while Tabs whines and mewls incessantly around the house.

He’s a very mad/sad tabby right now.

I think his meows roughly translate to, “Caturdays are the WORST, Mom!” Because we sleep in a little, which means that he doesn’t get to go outside at the crack of dawn like he does on the weekdays.

But I’ll take him out right after I have my noms, and after that, I’m heading to Napa for a weekend girls’ trip with my friends Jen and Cindy, just to hang out and relax. We’re gonna do a sleepover at the Meritage Resort & Spa and chill out by the 🌞 pool.

Yes, I am really looking forward to that.

I hope that you have a wonderful Saturday and a great weekend ahead of you. I’d better go attend to Tabs now because he’s FREAKIN’ out. His highness is freakin’ out! Talk to you soon.

  9. Debbie Snell says:

    still winter here in new zealand and my cat toby the ninja ginger hates it His an outsied kitty independent with an attitude so most days even when its horribe hes on his ‘chair’ outside under the eaves purveying his castle. Sometimes we are graced by his presence or he parks himself on the window sill looking peeved Roll on summer πŸ™‚

  10. Sarah says:

    I love the MAC pro store in SF, but it’s harder for me to get there.

  11. Yay for Caturday! I’ve got photos of my kitty ready to inundate social media

  12. Eileen says:

    I finally tried Nars Pro Prime Eye Primer, and I wish I could reclaim all the eyeliners and mascaras I threw away before because of smudging.

  13. Kellyn says:

    My favorite MAC counter in the whole entire world is the only one within a 50 mile radius of my house, therefore the only one I go to…LOL

  14. Regina M says:

    Hmmm on my wall I’ve got several maps, if those count, some lord of the rings prints and my diploma haha it makes me very happy plus i’ve got some photographs that I shot hanging!

  15. Some of the funniest TV shows would be It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Broad City, and Workaholics.

  22. Colleen Boudreau says:

    I have a fake framed button that says “Push for champagne” hanging on my wall.

  23. Denise S says:

    The only MAC counter near me is in a Macy’s in the local mall. I wish I had a stand-alone store close to me.

  24. michele says:

    I seriously couldn’t live without my makeup…it just makes me HAPPY!!! πŸ™ŒπŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜œπŸ’„πŸ˜†β€

  25. Nicole says:

    I wanted to cut down on my makeup time so I decided to switch my current highlight and contour products, the contour I decided on was nars contour blush in the darkest shade. Normally I’m a creme contour girl but I must say this new method is fantastic (;

  26. Noirojos says:

    I tried liquid highlighter under my foundation the other day…it looked so so good!

  27. Terry says:

    Other than a picture hanging on the wall. We also have a hammer for a Fathers Day gift from the kids mount on the wall. It says Thank You Daddy For Help Building Our Lives. Its different but sweet. Thanks Karen Xo

  28. Shelley says:

    I just had an, er, MAC experience yesterday at the MAC store in the mall near me. Let’s just say I had fun. I came home with (among other things) a Patentpolish Lip Pencil in Revved Up and a Cremesheen Pearl Lipstick in Pretty Boy. Like you, I have a serious coral problem this summer!

  29. Elena says:

    I bought a yeti to mount on my wall (think like a trophy animal but instead its a fuzzy yeti with horns on a wooden plaque hahaha). It is quite a conversation piece.

  30. Farah D says:

    I can’t remember a funny movie, but The Office is cracking me up right now.

  31. Ana says:

    So, I’ve been so confused at what exactly the point of HD powder is for the longest time. So confused. So, finally I tried it. And I’m still not entirely sure, but I think it might have worked better at shine control than my usual powder? So I’m going to keep using it, even though I’m still not entirely sure it’s even doing anything. Wonderful.

  32. Tiffany says:

    I’m headed to the Cleveland Irish Cultural Festival today. I’m dying to get my hands on another tube of MAC Red. I lost mine when I wore it as a chaperone at a prom, and I need a new tube before I’m a bridesmaid in a wedding next Saturday!

  33. Lauren says:

    What a fun weekend you have ahead!! Enjoy every moment!

    I love all Mac counters! I love the busy, fun vibe of the counter in Toronto Eaton Centre Mall…busiest counter in Canada but alot of room to play! Miss living there!

  34. The last time I did something different with my makeup and it turned out great was when shooting for my “Inspired by…”-series. I try something different all the time and it usually looks better on me than I would have imagined.

    It’s not a movie, but the show Burning Love is the funniest show I’ve ever seen, it’s a parody on the Bachelor/Bachelorette and is hilarious!

  36. Valerie says:

    We have an excessive amount of mirrors on our walls!!!

  39. Trillina Palemi says:

    I have never had a makeover at a makeup counter

  40. Michelle says:

    New makeup I encountered that actually worked was trying an eyeliner that was blue. The shade was indigo, and I was a little worried, but now it’s one of my favorite ones!

  41. Natalie says:

    Caturday is the best!

  42. Rachel R. says:

    Poor Tabs; humans are so fickle. πŸ˜‰

    The last new thing I tried with my makeup was two different brightly colored mascaras. I did electric blue on the top lashes and teal on the bottom ones. I kept the rest of the eye pretty neutral, and used a JCAT Pout-holic lipstick in Candy Man (grayish-blue cream) on my lips. It was a fun way to wear blues other than my eyeshadow.

  43. Nicole says:

    The funniest movie that I’ve watched recently was Get Hard. So funny!

  44. Jessica says:

    Sharing a Caturday with my favorite tabby, Mr. Jangles!

  45. Liz says:

  51. Amy says:

    Funniest movie I’ve seen lately is Inside Out. So good. You must see it.

  52. Alex Rhodes says:

    Hey! This weekend is crunch time for my CPA exams. Your posts give me a brief moment of joy throughout the day as I cram as many FASB, IFRS, and GAAP tidbits as I possibly can into my brain. My exams are in 3 days yikes! I passed two so far and am taking the next two, FAR and REG, back to back this week.I’m so ready for these dumb exams to be done. I finally start working for a firm at the end of this month and you better believe the first paycheck will have a small amount of spend spree reserved on it. Better start checking out some items on your posts with more critical eyes and see what I must get! OR I should probably wait for the holiday sets… UGH decisions! Also I’ve decided to leave my cat with my parents, wah. She was inside, then got a taste for the great outdoors. There is no way I could feel good about sticking her in a cramped little apartment now when I move in two weeks…. I will miss her :,( She is the same way in the AMs as Tabs!!!

    Hey by the way for your contests, do you contact the winner or is there somewhere we have to look? Or do we just get to randomly wake up to an awesome gift card email???

  53. Lorraine Nwaoko says:

    I have learning how to apply lashes on my bucket list.

  54. andrea amy says:

    Something other than a picture or a painting hanging on my walls are various crafts that the kids have made me.

  55. Kwmechelle says:

    On Thursday I tried a new eyeshadow look that turned out awesome! I used the WnW palette Comfort Zone (the one color that’s a dupe for MAC’s Blue Brown but was, sadly, terrible quality) + my UD Electric palette and I lurved the look. I only did one eye because I wasn’t sure where I was going with the colors but it totally convinced me to go out & buy the Buxom No Faux shadow (also a dupe for Blue Brown but in shadow form instead of pigments- which I prefer). Have an awesome girls’ weekend!

  56. NT says:

    Hey Karen! I hope your Caturday is going purrrrfect. Mine is hot and balmy here in Michigan. The last time I tried something *new* with my make up was not wearing make up at all.. lol. Since it has been so hot I have been in a massive ‘oh well’ mode, letting my hair be natural and my face also. It actually turned out great because I am slowly letting go of my somewhat compulsive “need” to wear makeup. So that’s what’s new on my make up end. That being said, $50 for some *actual* make up would be awesome πŸ™‚ Have a nice day!

  57. Debora Brezoi says:

    The funniest movie i have seen in a while is The Ramen Girl.

  58. Laurinha says:

    Hi Karen! Have a nice weekend!

  59. Gina says:

    The latest thing that I tried was false eyelashes!!! I loved it!!! It was so fun! Poor Tabs! I understand/get the whole cat deal – I’ve been taking care of a Momma and kitties for the past few weeks. I’ve been trying to relocate them in new homes and I’ve placed two of them so far — and I’m worried. There’s two girls left and the Momma… and it’s almost the first of the month already. My landlord has already said that he will call the pound and I can stand the thought of those little kitties perishing. Nor for that matter Mattie, the Momma cat. I worry so much about it. I’ve done what I know to do, I put them in a pet finding group on face-book, placed an ad in the local newspaper — no calls yet. I have Gracie as you know and I just cannot keep three more girls!!! Any ideas Karen?

    last time i tried new makeup was over 3 years ago i think its time again

  61. Lisa says:

    Does doing freestyle dancing in the elevator with my boyfriend count? Well, I tried, and he made a hilarious comment about my said try. It was fun!

    P.S. I have never owned anything mac before, and would love to try it. Normally, I am a drug store makeup girl~

    Good luck to all & thank you!

  62. JP says:


    Favorite MAC counter in the whole entire world?
    Haven’t found it yet – the experiences have been mixed at the 5 that I’ve been to.
    Have you ever done any freestyle rapping?
    Only to make my kids laugh!

    Last time you tried something new with your makeup and it turned out great?
    I’m not that adventurous anymore – I just stick to my templates, my notes. Whenever I experiment, it’s a day I plan on not leaving the house.

    Funniest movie you’ve ever seen?
    These are movies from the 90’s but it’s a toss up between True Lies and Something About Mary and Dumb and Dumber. I laughed out loud repeatedly for all 3 in theaters, something that hardly ever happens. Something might be funny but anymore it’s just noted or you smile, but you don’t burst out laughing. True Lies is still funny every time I watch it, but Something About Mary and Dumb and Dumber were only funny the first time and the subsequent times just fell flat, you know?

  63. karen says:

    I always enter hoping to win….i NEED some new mac items…lol!

  64. Amy says:

    I recently tried the Rimmel Lasting Foundation and it worked really well for me in this recent hot weather!

  65. Jessie C. says:

    I love Toy Story movies!

  66. Hi Karen! I hope you’re having a fabulous weekend so far!

    My favorite MAC counter in the world is probably in NYC somewhere. Never been there. But it gives me a reason to go, lol.

    Best casual conversation you had this week?
    About our doggies, I love talking about them.

    Yesterday, one of my students got a certificate for best Spanish at our school I went to see her I combined silver eyeliner on the inner corner of my wet line and black at he rest.

    Something other than a picture or a painting hanging on your walls?
    a Chinese calender

  79. Gaby says:

    okay i really wanted to answer the question about “something other than a picture or a painting hanging on your walls” cause i think this is pretty interesting (or maybe just to me because l o l)! but anyway, i have a cross-stitch thing hanging on my wall that my mom made for me with my name on it.. she made it when i was still in her belly and back when cross-stitching was super popular haha πŸ™‚

    anyway, hope you have a great weekend in Napa! <3

  80. Gayathri N says:

    Actually I have been trying out some rapping haha! I don’t know why but in my mind I have this rapper persona so basically when I’m bored, or showering or just being a weirdo I look up lyrics to my favorite rap songs (mostly by Karmin!) And I just pretend I’m Eminem and rap away XD My life. -.-

  81. Sarah Sq. says:

    I just tried Kat Von D’s tattoo liner for the first time this week and I’m obsessed!

  83. Mary Lou says:

    This afternoon we’ll be going to my MIL’s Care Home for their annual summer BBQ. Despite her advancing dementia, my MIL will ask me to help her put on some “fancy” clothes and help her put on some lipstick. She may or may not know who I am, but she still knows that she wants to “look like a lady” for special occasions. Every time I help her do her nails or dust on some face powder I hope that I am as much of a lady.

  84. Pauline says:

    I would love a weekend getaway to relax a bit and shop a bit. Enjoy yours!!

  88. Maggie says:

    I like to head into Nordstrom for most of any brand that Sephora doesn’t have or doens’t have an extended collection of–including MAC. I try not to go into MAC stores period–I’m not a huge fan of the music.

  89. Steffinie says:

    I recently tried using a peach/orange base as a corrector before applying concealer to cover my insanely dark underage circles. It looked ridiculous while applying, but with concealer over top and blended it actually ended up looking pretty good, and concealed better than my usual concealer alone!

  90. Rebecca says:

    i recently tried out the “iconic urban decay smoky eye” from the lookbook inside naked smoky and it is a DREAM! i felt so sultry and glam πŸ˜‰

  91. Mary says:

    I tired to contour and highlight the other night and my make was on fleek 😎😍❀️

  96. Gillian says:

    I should be cleaning my apartment, but instead I’m lounging watching YouTube vids and reading makeup blogs. Karen I think this a great giveaway and winning would definitely put a smile as well as a swipe of Oo La La on my face. The funniest comedy I’ve seen recently was last night’s Kevin Hart show live at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal. I actually laughed until I cried, but guess what, my Bourgois Volumizer Mascara, Maybelline Tattoo Leather in Creamy Beige, MAC Corduroy and MUFE Pro Finish Powder Foundation stayed on point. Here’s to good times!

  97. Brwnfruit says:

    I have a montage of my kids tissue box sculptures that they made at school πŸ™‚

  98. Crystal says:

    Your spa weekend sounds great! Even just a mani/pedi would be great to be honest. So I’ve been craving Red Vines and for some reason the only small packs they had are grape flavored. I just tried them out and they can go straight in the trash hah. Not a fan and I’m still craving Red Vines, if not more now!

  99. Petra says:

    My favorite MAC counter is a cozy little place in Paris, near Louvren. As a little girl i went there and was amazed by all the beautiful stuff. This year, as a faithful MAC lover I went there again! Love it!

  100. Tracy Robertson says:

    I have an inexpensive container of 6 eye shadows that I got as a freebie a long time ago. One of them is super dark charcoal with sparkles in it. I didn’t think I’d ever use it, but yesterday I was too lazy to do my eyeliner so I lined my upper lids with the dark shadow instead and it actually looked great! But the drawback was it started smearing about 2 hours later.

  101. Kelly Kimmell says:

    I have my great-grandmother’s hand-made quilt hanging on a quilt rack on one of my walls.

  103. Trisha says:

    I just found this old eyeshadow duo earlier this week and tried it out yesterday. The PRETTIEST neutral smokey I’ve ever had. American Beauty is beautiful and I don’t know why I never used it before.

  104. Chelsea Amanda says:

    Happy Caturday!! 😸 Asides from band posters in frames hanging up I have a banner from one of my favorite bands hanging up in my bedroom! I got it at warped tour a few weeks ago!

  105. Stacey Rosenthal says:

    I recently started mixing Stila Aqua Bronzer with my foundation and it makes me look so glowy. Also, baking underneath my contour with my beauty blender to put the powder down with before brushing it away. Love that!

  106. Julie says:

    My new makeup thing – I’ve been experimenting with new tinted brow fibre products instead of using shadow to fill in and shape my thin recovering-from-the-90s brows. Tried both the Benefit Gimme Brow and L’Oreal Brow Stylist Plumper. Enjoying both and love that they both having staying power and hold in addition to color. A definite makeup win!

  107. Alona Y says:

    I’m about to try something new: false lashes! I picked some up that were on sale, I’m sure they’re cheap ones but I just gotta try it.

  108. Tracy says:

    Beautiful day on softball field with my family today. Love your youtube channel and blogs. Would love to try mac eyeshadows and MSF I only wear bobbi brown bronzer and mascara and gloss would love to try some new makeup.thanks,Have a great weekend.

    Thanks for the giveaway, Karen! Hope you have a lovely weekend with your friends πŸ™‚

  110. Lynn T. says:

    I like the MAC counter at Macy’s Union Square in SF. The clerks there are nice and not pushy. I feel comfortable taking my time with the products.

  111. Faiza says:

    Funniest movie ever is The Other Guys!

  112. Lauren Wieland says:

    I wish I had the time to try a new makeup look. My current routine takes me 15 minutes and even that’s too long for my husband!

  113. BJW says:

    I usually have my university degrees hanging on my offices walls. I moved a few months ago and haven’t actually hung them yet. Time to get on that.

  114. Amber Morrison says:

    Your last post made me break out MAC Springsteen. I forgot how much I love this blush!

  115. Deborah says:

    Just found a killer deal on stila, they are discontinuing their bronzer which usually sells fo $28 it is on sale for $9!! fantastic buy. You can only buy 5 at a time. Hurry before they are gone.

  116. renu says:

    One of the funniest movies for me is an oldie ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’!

  117. Alice says:

    I have a silly drawing my brother did for me. It’s from about a decade ago, but I keep it up bc it reminds me of family. I also have art work from my nieces too.

  118. Kelly says:

    Napa sounds lovely; definitely do some wine tasting while you’re there!

    Besides the artwork, I have 2 maps on my walls; one is a NYC Subway map, the other is a NYU map. I’m NYC obsessed!
    The latest thing I tried with my makeup was a smoky eye. I never wear them because they make my already small eyes look even smaller. However, I managed to do one yesterday that made my eyes look amazing, I’ll have to see if I can replicate it!

    So the last time I tried something with my makeup was when I bought sort of a dark red vampy lipstick from MAC. It’s the shade Media if you’ve ever heard of it. I fell in love with the look and I don’t really wear it often, but I am so glad I decided to try something new. I’m thinking of buying a dark purple vampy shade from MAC the next time I want to try something new.

  130. Trudy Erickson says:

    Those MAC eyeshadow colors are gorgeous… How did they get that amazing wave effect in there? They’re like a work of art. I love MAC….

    Nothing much on the walls now, but we are working on that.

  139. Frances M. says:

    I don’t have a favorite MAC counter. Sadly we only have two close by and it’s like if you don’t exist.

    I’m the proud momma of 2 feline goddesses that want to say hi to Tabs. πŸ˜‰

  140. Jaye says:

    So this week was my first week back to work after I’ve been on maternity leave for 12 weeks and I utterly missed my baby girl sooooo much! I didn’t cry but my heart did long for her. It was very hard!

  141. Anais says:

    The best conversation I’ve had recently is with my best friend. We laughed as we remembered trying desperately to fit in as young teens/adults. We failed. Thank the gods.

  142. bridget says:

    My favorite MAC counter is the one at the “fancy” mall in my hometown. I used to work at one of the stores there and hang at the Macy’s MAC counter to play with makeup on my breaks.

  143. Erin Ortiz says:

    Currently I’m on the hunt for a treadmill so I can work on my fitness. We’re really limited in our rural area so I’m on the phone with my mom who’s from Iowa, visiting Chicago, looking at treadmills for me.

  144. Kat says:

    I have a mask I brought back from Venice on my wall!

  145. dawn says:

    I went out of the house with only sunscreen, concealer and highlighter today! I usually go with light foundation but I think my skin is finally in good enough shape to go without!

  146. marlena says:

    “Shaun of the Dead” is probably the funniest movie I’ve seen.

    Happy Saturday.

    Just waking up really (it’s 3pm) after such an awesome birthday bash last night. I really out did myself and my guests had a lovely time as well. Now I’m just sleeping and trying to recuperate.

    Favorite MAC counter in the whole entire world? Tucson Mall, Tucson, AZ

    Have you ever done any freestyle rapping? Yes when I was younger, and I actually thought I was going to be famous lol.

    Best casual conversation you had this week? Chatting with my friend Rem. He’s suck a nice guy and we have some really good conversations especially about our favorite shows.

    Last time you tried something new with your makeup and it turned out great? I like to mix lipsticks and come up with my own color. So far it’s been coming out very well but there is a science to getting the ride shade for my complexion.

    Something other than a picture or a painting hanging on your walls? Hello Kitty Jewelry organizer that my mother had made for me some Christmases ago.

    Funniest movie you’ve ever seen? Don’t be a menace while drinking your juice in the hood. When I need a pick me up that’s the one movie I can count on making me laugh.

  151. Gen G. says:

    Happy Caturday! Favorite MAC counter- King of Prussia, PA (thought I know being a fellow crazy cat lady you want to read that as “puur-sia” and it’s totally okay.) They always have my melba powder and creamsheen fully stocked.

    I haven’t seen a funny movie in a while, but I’m dying to see Trainwreck.

  152. Michelle L says:

    I have a souvenir clock hanging which I bought from Santorini Greece.

  157. Lizzie says:

    My fav MAC counter is the one closest to me at my local mall. I love it because everyone working there is extremely friendly and not snobby. So it’s always been a good experience there

  158. Marilyn says:

    Can you believe I haven’t tried MAC yet? I’m not sure where to start with their products.

  159. Dani says:

    Something other than a picture hanging on my walls is a metal Eiffel Tower. I’ve always dreamed of going to France and most of my room is French themed.

    I love Mac!! This would be so awesome to win!!

  168. Maria K says:

    I don’t know if I have a favorite MAC counter…if any! I always feel so intimidated. The PRO store in SF is always so small and crowded, and the SAs can be a little pushy, trying to make you buy more than you intend to.

  169. Meg says:

    Last time I did something new with my makeup, I tried doing some crazy graphic liner and really liked how it turned out!

  170. Jatava B. says:

    I am currently in LOVE with the MAC lipstick, Matte Royal A55! Let me just say that this color has not failed me yet! It’s the perfect blue color for a night on the town, and I am so happy I purchased it! I need to go back and pick up some more!:)

  171. Susan T. says:

    I have a collection of carved wooden masks on my walls. I have some African ones and and Indonesian one that looks like a snarling jaguar. They’re kind of scary but they are supposed to keep bad spirits away!

  172. Sylvia says:

    I have a license plate from New Brunswick hanging on my kitchen wall. My dad and I have a long standing completion for who can see the most license plates from different states and countries. He gave me a New Brunswick plate because one year on my birthday he beat me to seeing a NB plate on a car in a Barnes and Noble parking lot.

  173. Lori P says:

    Well there is only one MAC counter in OKC so I guess by default that is my favorite one,the SA’s are pretty cool. I did see a MAC counter in the Denver airport coming back from vacation in May and if I had more time between flights…I would have attacked that store

  174. Tania G says:

    Your weekend trip sounds so wonderful. Have a great time!

  175. Angie M says:

    The funniest movie I’ve recently seen is SPY with Melissa McCarthy. So funny my husband burst into laughter whilst taking a sip of his drink!

  194. Joni Mingus says:

    Hi karen, hope you are having a great weekend. I had a heart cath procedure Wednesday and everything went well! (For reference, I am 25 years old) I had a family reunion today and it was a great turnout, saw some family I hadn’t seen in years. oh and also! The day I got home from my heart cath, I had urban decay naked smoky waiting for my on my table! I love it! It’s great, very easy to use with a light hand to not go overboard and have a “black eye”.

  195. Kim Pincombe Cole says:

    Hope you’re having a great girls weekend in Napa!
    I cannot freestyle rap to save my life – my words never come out fast enough & make any sense when I rap (haha!).
    My fave MAC counter/store is in the Keystone at the Crossing Fashion Mall in Indy.

  196. shreya malhotra says:

    hey girl! oh gosh, isnt trying on makeup tricks just the best kind of experimentation? I love it way more than science experiments hehe

    some of the greatest tricks i have used have been by accident. I used urban decay setting spray to wet eyeshadow brushes and then use them to get really intense pigmentation out of my shadows. other cool things i love to use are using lipstick as blush, i find it works just like a gorgeous cream blush. ive also used a cool tone matte brown shadow for contouring. playing with makeup is ridiculously fun! there are so many possibilities πŸ˜€ also another cool way to use makeup is using setting spray, a liner brush and the electric palette from urban decay. you get endless bright colored eyeliners!

  197. Jennifer says:

    would love to win!

  198. Ms. Elise says:

    I’ve never tried free rapping. I’m pretty sure I would be terrible at it anyway, and probably faint from nervousness.

  200. Aenea says:

    Just saw a piece of cheese hanging on our wall, placed by my 2-year old son. Plus there are 3 dinosaurs stuck in the ceiling, placed by his older brother. We have unique home decor here.

  201. JackieC says:

    I recently tried out Mac’s stone lipstick and love it! At first, I thought I looked dead. But once I started playing around with different lip liners and glosses, I found the perfect combination. Stone lipstick with chestnut liner and either fresh brew or spice lip gloss on top. It’s perfect!

  202. Kiki says:

    I never won anything lately… Bummer! πŸ˜•πŸ˜•

  205. JC Almario says:

    Last time you tried something new with your makeup and it turned out great? – I’m usually a plain Jane but recently I dabbled with makeup and skin care again and its more enjoyable than ever. This even inspired me to create a blog of my own. Anyway, believe it or not I’ve never tried any MAC products before even though I want to since it can pretty expensive here in the Philippines and I don’t have the budget for it yet. Winning can be a life changer for me. Thanks for doing this giveaway. Whoever wins will definitely be delighted!

  206. Rachel says:

    Not very sophisticated, but whenever me and my little brother need a good laugh, we always watch Over the Hedge!

  207. Cathy says:

    Funny you should ask.. The best conversation I had this week was actually just tonight at dinner with some friends. We were talking about ghosts, spirits and the afterlife and our experiences when a loved one dies. I think people would be surprised with what is out there.

  208. Stephanie says:

    Not really makeup, but I recently started doing my nails myself. (I used to get gel nail polish manicures.) I decided to try some beginner nail art and accent nails. I suck at nail art, but I like a simple accent nail.

  209. Barbara B says:

    My friend had our wedding invitation mounted in glass with dried flowers and that hangs in our hallway!

  247. Sandra says:

    I tried to do an ombre lip the other day. I did my top lip in one color (smolder eye kohl from mac) and for my bottom lip i did the ombre. I used smolder again on the outside of my lip and I used viva glam miley in the middle. I blended it together and added a shimmery eye shadow (seedypearl also from mac) It turned out amazing omg i loved it. The color turned from a dark purple color on the outside to a lighter purple and then pink. It was so pretty!! My description does not do it justice.

  248. Hilary says:

    I haven’t tried MAC! I find the stores to be really overwhelming and I don’t know where to begin. A gift card would be great motivation!

  249. Kecia S. says:

    My grad school acceptance letter is hanging on the wall of my office. I love too many funny movies to label one as the funniest, but “The Princess Bride”, “Caddyshack” & “Cry Baby” are among my favorites.

    I love experimenting with new types of makeup, especially bright colors of lipstick, but I’m always nervous to wear them out in public since I’m don’t usually wear a lot of makeup. It’s always fun to browse makeup counters though!

  251. Rosie R says:

    The last makeup technique that I used that I am absolutely obsessed with would have to be dampening my beauty blender with my setting spray. It sounds weird, but it seems to work on my skin!

  252. Renata says:

    Woo, well last time I’ve tried a dark creamy matt eyeshadow by Pupa as an eyeliner and it totally worked! Firstly I’ve just wanted to put it all over my eyelid, but as it turned out to be not such a great idea (especially for this heat here in Hungary), I’ve cleaned it up and went for a second round. And it worked, didn’t flick, didn’t smudge. Hella good product, I can tell πŸ˜€

    Believe it or not i never curled my eyelashes, i tried it and havent stopped since

  297. joods says:

    Does MAC have a dupe for Nars “Cassiopia”?
    Have a great week everyone!

  298. Lori says:

    My local mall has a MAC counter in Dillard’s. I would have to say it must be my favorite and for some crazy reason they all know me by name LOL

  299. Erika says:

    New makeup.look today with color pop eye shadow in amaze.

  300. Kirsten says:

    Favorite MAC counter in the whole entire world? I don’t have a particular favorite– not enough experience with them as I tend to order online. The one at the Lakewood Macy’s was fairly friendly and helpful though.

    Have you ever done any freestyle rapping? I’ve never done any kind of rapping!

    Best casual conversation you had this week? It was about the differences between Canadian and American TV and, um, exploding werewolf dongs. You had to be there.

    Last time you tried something new with your makeup and it turned out great? I’ve been using lip pencils alone on my lips recently and I like the way that looks and wears. Does that count?

    Something other than a picture or a painting hanging on your walls? A wooden silhouette of a howling wolf that my uncle made. It’s kinda laser etched although I think he did it with saws.

    Funniest movie you’ve ever seen? I like black humor, so maybe something by Monty Python, like the Holy Grail?

  301. Jen says:

    My wedding invitation is hanging on my wall in a frame surrounded with signatures from everyone who attended my wedding.

  302. Tashia T says:

    Any MAC counter is my favorite. I don’t have one near me so anytime I get the chance to go to one I’m like a kid in a candy store!

  303. Paulomi Majumder says:

    Hey Karen! Hope all is well with you. After watching and reading tons of folks using the scotch tape trick for a well defined cat eye with eyeshadows, I finally have started myself used the trick and am in looooooooooooove with the awesome and convenient results!

    Tabs isn’t the only pet employer being more diva or cray as normal, this weekend Max also was quite annoying while his morning walkings.

  310. Valerie C. says:

    I tried the new Bare Minerals brow palette from QVC. It looks good and the brush is skinny so I can be precise.

  311. Donna W. says:

  328. Ruchita says:

    Happy Monday!

  329. Tatiana says:

    My favorite MAC counter is the one I happen to be nearest too at any time! Lol. I really like the MAC store on Powell St. in SF. Although, I hear that MAC just opened a makeup studio on the upper east side of Manhattan, so I’m dying to go there and have my makeup done. Going to NYC in the fall, so I’m hoping to book an appointment to see what it’s all about.

    Not a movie, but a TV Show. I just love ‘Everybody loves Raymond’. There is this one episode which is my favorite, no actually two. ‘Thank you notes’ and ‘Meat balls’. I just love Debra’s and Marie’s silly fights. They are so lively, funny and most of it happening in real life (if you know what I’m talking about ;)). I think I should watch them tonight again. Lol.

  351. Anne-Marie says:

    Covent garden in London. No, actually Henry Street in Dublin. Some are pretty uninviting with snobby staff, but not these two.

  352. Pamela Haddad says:

    Have you ever done any freestyle rapping? Not freestyle, but I once won a radio contest by rapping the rest of Blondie’s Rapture: and you get in your car and drive real far and drive all night till you see a light and it comes right down and it lands on the ground and out comes the man from Mars…

    oh, my. the giveaway entry method has changed!

    well, my favourite casual conversation this past week was with a walk in to the jewelers. i needed to get my wedding set resized, and he was a great conversation. we chatted about what i needed done, and he explained what he was going to do, and that his schedule was a bit pressing since he was leaving for vacation.

    so i’m wedding ring set-less until the second week of august. it feels weird! i wouldn’t leave it for so long with just anybody, but his vibe was positive, so i trust he’ll do a fine job. πŸ™‚

  431. Leslie says:

    Happy Monday! So glad it’s already mostly over, haha! I’m still looking for a fav MAC counter. I’m always so intimidated to go into the store or the counter! I want to get a new makeup look, too, for an engagement photo shoot this fall. Must be brave!! Lol.
