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

Published in: Giveaways, Just For Fun, Tabs


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


What a day! I had an interesting, exciting one yesterday. That’s why I wasn’t around much. Tabs had to hold down the fort at MBB headquarters because I was in the city shooting five (!) videos for a makeup project later this year, and I’d never done anything quite that official before, with a producer and a director and props and big studio lights.



That’s different than how I usually do my videos in my living room, haha. The only thing missing was Tabs all up in my grill. πŸ™‚ Hopefully it all works out, and I’m able to share the videos when they’re done.

I’m still a little tired from having to be on so much yesterday, so I don’t feel like pushing myself this weekend. My priority is taking it easy. I should do some housecleaning and run some errands, but that’s it. If El Hub says he wants to go kayaking down a raging river, I may have to decline.

I hope you had a good week, my friend. Please tell me someone did something nice for you. I always wish that.

    I really enjoyed Gaga for Viva Glam and I wish they’d give her a collection or two like they did with Rihanna.

  2. Agata says:

    Oh Karen, it sounds exciting, I can’t wait to hear what the project is!!! Get some rest and do take it easy!

  3. Ally says:

    I loved the Mac and lady gaga collaboration! That pink lipstick was amazing.

  4. Laurasandoval says:

    I love the red shades… looking forward to the Selena collection

  5. S says:

    I am so thankful for YT vids, blogs & vlogs cz it is where i actually learned how to put on makeup on myself & close people to me that saved us a lotta bucks! I may be living in a different country and misaing going abroad but wathing vlogs made me feel happy & giddy! Thank u for being kind for doing this to people u dnt even knw, God Bless U!

  6. Melissa says:

    My mom talks a lot, she is so friendly and kind. She also taught me about makeup and fashion, she’s the best! πŸ™‚

  7. Eshee Iqbal says:

    I know MAC has a wide range of cosmetics but out of all of them I’m really eager on trying the patentpolish collection! Its just so lovely!

  8. Honi says:

    I could not choose one lipstick as the best one of all times but lately I’ve been wearing the heck out of Mac’s Plumful. I am a very pale NW10 and it just compliments both my skintone and eye color so nicely without being over the top. I can wear it sheered out for everyday or go all in with a vampy liner for a party. But choosing one would be like choosing my favorite child so I refuse πŸ˜€

  9. Kathy Smith-Woodcock says:

    My best friend is wonderful and talks nonstop.

  10. Hilary says:

    I always apply moisturizer with SPF in the morning- hydrates and protects and then I don’t have to worry if I’ll be outside for a little while.

  11. Josie says:

    I have tripped and fallen at many inoppourtune moments but I’d have to say my worst was on my first day at a new job. I was working at a frozen yogurt shopped and I tripped and spilled a box of cookie dough bits on the ground. Not my best moment😁😡😳😳

  12. Lisa Brown says:

    My husband talks a lot; this is good since I talk a little.

  13. Jenny says:

    Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer SPF30!!!!

  14. Rose says:

    My favourite non sunscreen product that contains spf is hands down bb cream. Love to just slap it on on lazy days. And was there a day I didn’t trip or fall at an inopportune moment? lol

  15. Layla says:

    Congrats on your project! How exciting. I can’t possibly pick just one lipstick as the best of all time, at least not yet. I still have a bunch on my wish list to try! I do love Smashbox PhotoFinish Primer w/ SPF. But I always use a different sunscreen product with higher SPF–just to be safe. Enjoy your relaxing weekend πŸ™‚

  16. Sounds like you’ve had a hectic few days! But exciting, also!

    As always, I am in for the giveaway πŸ™‚ Happy weekend, Karen!

  17. Lauren says:

    Karen!! How exciting for you!! Congrats on your project!!

    I can’t say “soggy” or “foggy” without sounding like a true New Yorker. I’m from Chicago. And to say “rural” takes me about 10 min…I hate having to say that word! I end up just saying “ya know, the opposite of urban!”

  18. Jennifer says:

    My favorite non-spf item is coconut oil. Very good for the skin and offers some protection. I would still wear an spf if I were doing anything outside, though.

  19. Stacey says:

    I’ve been using the Boots No7 Beautiful Skin Day Cream for normal/oily skin that has SPF 15 in it. Also when I say meme I don’t put as much emphasis on the “e” sound as other people do.

  20. Rose says:

    I’m pretty sure every time that I have tripped or fallen has been at an inopportune moment!

  21. Mariah says:

    My favorite two favorite lipsticks hands down are velvet teddy and honey love from mac. I’m in love with them, and if you put velvet teddy on the ends of your lips where they meet and honey love in the middle with a lip liner it makes a beautiful ombrΓ© effect. Brave is also one of my faves πŸ™‚

  22. aisha nisar says:

    i guess nobody can talk as much as me and that is what on my family and friends would agree on. congratz on the project really love your looks and reviews great job keep motivating and inspiring us.

  23. Oh,exciting tease. I cant wait to see the finished videos!

    My favorite lipstick of all time is probably Mac viva glam VI. I love the color with my skin tone and it makes me feel awesome when I wear it!!

  25. Hajara says:

    Back in junior high I tripped and fell in front of my crush. It was the worst thing ever, makes me cringe even now. 😁 lol
    Great giveaway.

  26. frostylids says:

    Someone you know who talks A LOT?
    My mother, my sister and my best friend.
    I’m so used to listening that I feel awkward when someone asks what I think or asks me how I’m doing, etc. It takes me a minute to think of a cohesive response, and then it usually just spills out.

    A word you pronounce differently than most people?
    Amenable (some say a-meen-uh-bull, I say a-men-uh-bull) and self-deprecating vs. self-depreciating.

  27. jessica says:

    Such a great pic of you! Poor Tabs for being left out.

    Uh, yeah I trip a lot at home, because I am always tripping over the stupid cats. It is worst when I just get home and I really have to pee. That is not a good time to trip over a cat.

    Have you ever tripped or fallen at an inopportune moment?
    Ooooh yes. There was this one time after school (I was in high school), it was raining, and the floor on the packed subway station that most students would take to get home was slippery… I fell not once but twice in front of half the school :/

  30. Nivedita says:

    I am badly trying to use up products! In that process, it seems that my shopping-sprees are more in control and I am actually decluttering! I did try the same lipstick project and it kind of failed! I used up about half of a lipstick though!

    Going through the ideas you put in for comment, I cannot help saying and that proves, I am the most talkative person in my circle! Not that I am talkative with everyone. But, with a select few, I can be that one!

  32. andrea amy says:

    Someone I know who talks a lot is my 5 year old… from the time he wakes until he finally goes to bed its non stop. I don’t even think he stops to breathe lol

  33. maria says:

    Would love some new lipsticks!!

  34. Melissa Hays says:

    My sister talks more than anyone who has ever existed!!!! Seriously:) Hope all went well for you. Get some rest!

  35. Michelle says:

    Someone who talks a lot? lol Yes, my co-worker. I give her 10 minutes of attention to tell me whatever she wants in the morning like a dream she had during the night haha

  36. Hannah says:

    My absolute favorite non-sunscreen SPF product is Tarte’s Amazonian clay 12-hour foundation. It’s kept my skin protected so well on beach days this summer!

  37. Sasha says:

    Sounds like you had a busy productive week! Its nice to see how much your blog has progressed over the years!! Keep up the good work!!!❀

  38. Anna says:

    My current all time favorite and go to lipstick is Chanel’s Rouge Coco Shine in Boy. I feel like this is the perfect nude/pink for me.

  39. roz says:

  42. Angie says:

    Congrats on the new project Karen! so looking forward to hearing about it…wishing you continued success!
    Favorite lipstick gosh too hard to pick but I feel like I don’t give enough love and ppl don’t talk about them often but the milani color statement lipsticks ! Great quality smell like watermelon jolly ranchers and the naturally chic shade is a perfect warm toned natural shade love it! Can’t go wrong😎

  43. Peggy says:

    My mac fix+ arrive yesterday in rose and yuzu. I’m in love with the smell

  44. Chelsea Amanda says:

    I’ve been down on myself this week, this would be a great pick me up. Thanks for the chance Karen!

  45. Rana says:

    Ugh. There’s never a good time to trip and fall. But the worst is in front of a childhood crush. Which is pretty much the story of my life. Fell for them every time.

  46. Michelle L says:

    I’ll slipped on the cruise ship I was on right before the excursion I was supposed to go on which I was looking forward to for awhile….

    OMG I tripped down a small staircase near my work when I was looking at my phone instead of where I was going. Lesson learned!

  57. Susan T. says:

    My favorite product with SPF is Pur Minerals 3 in 1 foundation powder. I’ve been using it for years and have never found anything better. If I’m really lazy it’s all I use on my skin.

  61. FIONA says:

    Someone that talks a… lot is one of my friend’s mothers. I would have no issue with this normally because I can skip out on long conversations, but she drives my soccer carpool. And it’s just her daughter and I. And we have a tournament this weekend very far away. And there’s traffic. SOS.

    ( Thank you for the giveaway! Love this blog more than is socially acceptable to love a non-living thing ;] )

  62. Rebecca says:

    Sadly to say my favorite lipstick of all time has been discontinued. EstΓ©e Lauder Tawny Wine! It is a nice brick red that looks great on pale skin.

  63. Cathy says:

    My husband talks A LOT! But it’s good for the type of he has. And yes, I have fallen in public. A few years back I was at the mall during Christmas time so it was crowded and I tripped over my own boot and face planted right in front of everyone. The thing is not a single person asked me if I was okay- people just walked around me. I felt like road kill 😏.

  64. Emily C says:

    I like my SPF lip balm. People forget that your lips are skin too!

  65. Shannon S. says:

    I love the color orange

  66. Aurelie Red says:

  73. Laura says:

    I trip and fall ALL the time.

  74. Mary W says:

    I agree with Angie about Milani. I like their lipstick but they also make pretty darned good nail polish. I am a talker – I do it for a living. My sister is also a talker and when we are together — watch out! We are a force to be reckoned with!

    • Angie says:

      Haha nice to know I’m not the only one:)
      Thanks for talking about the nail polishes Mary I never tried them im
      Going to have to give them a shot!

  75. Erika says:

    My favorite sunscreen is when it doesn’t smell like sunscreen. Coola makes a great sunscreen that doesn’t smell!

  76. Caitlyn S. says:

    RANDOM COMMENT- I have never tried MAC lipstick (or nars products, *besides my nars bday gift from sephora). I would love a MAC gift card- the only thing I’ve tried from MAC is eye shadow. so far.

    1)What’s your favorite non-sunscreen product that contains SPF?- my It cosmetics foundation

    2) Someone you know who talks A LOT?—-ME!!! LOL

    ******BEST ANSWER YOU WILL READ****** LOL 3)Have you ever tripped or fallen at an inopportune moment?—- um yes lots of times. Once, I fell/tripped going up (or down, I forget)the stairs at my college and dislocated my knee!
    ******And recently, I was in my work (a retail store), on a day off, with my 2 year old (who is quite the handful). we were in line waiting to pay for something when she decided to bolt out the automatic doors. I went running after her (keep in mind that I had new, so they were slippery, sandals (small heel) on)—- Near the registers where we had been standing in line is carpeted, but as soon as I hit the linoleum flooring that is right before the doors- I went sliding and then fell right on my wrists and knees *(which is better than my face, I suppose) but EVERYONE saw it! The people that were in line saw it, and all the people that I work with saw it… I was mortified!! (I caught her just in time though!!!) I had landed on my wrists and right knee so hard (the vestibule where I fell is covered in very tough, bumpy carpet- so I split my knee up pretty badly. I literally had to sit there for five minutes waiting for the pain to go away before i could actually stand up!

    4-Your pick for Best Lipstick of All Time? My fave for me is Maybelline color stay (or whatever the bright purple tube is) On the Mauve (awesome for fall/winter and even spring)

    5-A word you pronounce differently than most people? I know there’s a few words that i pronounce differently than most people because I am from Massachusetts. luckily, I am far enough from Boston that my R’s don’t sound like Ah’s.

  81. Sara muniz says:

    My son talks a lot about the most random things

  82. Michaela says:

    Hi Karen hope you are having a nice weekend ! My favorite lipstick right now is Mac’s Faux. It’s nude enough that I can pair it with colorful eye shadows but also I can make it more colorful by slapping on more lip gloss. I’ve received compliments when I wear it, and it’s not an overwhelming color.

  83. Denay says:

    I think most everyone talks a lot. It is rare to find people who listen. I think I frustrate people because I talk so little (Unless I have had a drink!)

  84. jules m. says:

    my sister lives alone so when we get together, she never stops talking… lol

  85. My 8 year old daughter talks a lot. I mean SHE TALKS A LOT. God Bless my little Squish. There’s not a thought she thinks that doesn’t come out of her month. I love her for that because she can’t lie. She’s incapable of keeping things in. She’s not malacious or mean. The funny thing is that she was a slow talker. At 2, I remember being afraid she would need speech therapy. We couldn’t understand anything she said. Now, she’s my non-stop chatter. Her favorite phrases are “Guess What?”; “Just saying,” and “Do you remember when?”

  86. Lauren Wieland says:

    I got a sample of the new Marc Jacobs foundation from Sephora, and I’ve been trying it out this week. I’m not sure how I feel about it yet. I love the coverage, but I’m not sure if it suits my dry skin. Also, I wish it had more of a dewy finish.

  87. Andrew says:

    Giveaway or not, I want to take this opportunity to thank you. Your blog helps me keep my mind off of the stuff going on around me right now. It really allows me to just relax and helps my anxiety to ease off. Especially today; one of my little dwarf rats, Cheryl, got spooked and ran away while she, her sister, and I were playing in the grass. I’m worried about what I’ll do for Pam (her sister) since they were best friends. She and my cat get along well enough, but it won’t be the same without her sister.

    Anyway, thanks for unwittingly giving me a place to help my mind relax and for letting me unload a little off my chest. Hope you have a great weekend!

  103. Makyla says:

    That sounds so exciting, even if it was exhausting! My favorite non-sunscreen product with SPF (50!) is the Josie Maran Argan Protect and Perfect Tinted Moisturizer! I hated it at first and almost returned it, but I’m really glad now that I hung onto it. It’s great! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Take care of yourself, Karen!

  104. Amoure Jones says:

    Happy Saturday Karen,

    Sounds pretty exciting and I’m looking forward to seeing the projects you’ve been working on. My weekend has been pretty chill and enjoying the goodness of the air conditioning indoors. I do love the Summer, but there is a point and time that you have to say no to temperatures of 104 and being outside. I’ve got plenty to do inside though and more decluttering which should keep me quite busy.

    What’s your favorite non-sunscreen product that contains SPF?

    Tinted moisturizer.

    Someone you know who talks A LOT?

    Me. I think I talk more than anyone I know.

    Best musical makeup collaboration between a brand and an artist?

    The Lion King and Inglot collaboration.

    Have you ever tripped or fallen at an inopportune moment?

    Whenever I do it’s always inopportune.

    Your pick for Best Lipstick of All Time?

    It’s between Sushi Kiss and Riri Woo

    Uhm, do I know someone who talks alot? Uh, yeah, that would be me and my daughter. We’re both very, very, very chatty.

    I always pronounce gyros as euros lol.

  108. Miriam Γ…sland says:

    My birthday is at the end of the month and, once again, I’m only asking for makeup! So excitedddd πŸ˜€ hope your August is going well, Karen!!

  113. Nichole says:

    So far my favorite lipstick would have to be the Too Faced Melted lipstick in “Sugar”. I only have that one shade, but I use it all the time! I love a simple nude lip πŸ™‚

  114. Brian says:

    My favorite product that contains SPF that isn’t a sunscreen are Fresh Sugar lip balms.

  115. arazatah says:

    Hi! My favourite lipstick at the moment is Pupa I’m Matte. It’s an Italian brand so I’m not sure if it’s possible to find it abroad but if you’re in Italy for the holidays you should definitely try it! It’s actually a matte tint, but it doesn’t dry the lips at all, it doesn’t go in the wrinkles around the muth even without a lip pencil and it costs aruond 10 euros. I’d go for the whole line but they mostly have bright colors while I’m a dark lipstick kind of girl ^^

  116. Romina Mastalli says:

    My sister talks a lot, she always want to tell about everything in her life, sometimes is kind of boring because she doesn’t let you talk at all! But she is very kind.

    MY wet and wild sugar plum fairy which i know is a dupe for MAC rebel

  122. brenda says:

    i like mac hautecore lipstick and whim nail polish !

  123. Heather L says:

    My fave lipstick of all time is Nars Audacious Lipstick in the shade “Charlotte.” The Audacious line has unbelievable long lasting wear – I leave for school or work all day and don’t even need to throw it in my purse for touch ups. They are a bit pricier, but because you eliminate the touch ups and use less they end up being a better value than cheaper lipsticks. The coverage and pigment are amazing, and they go on flawlessly. “Charlotte” is a gorgeous oxblood color that I get more compliments on than any other lipsticks I own. It is so flattering. My second favorite shade in the line is “Michiyo,” a very fun and pretty hot pink. I love these lipsticks so much I have been collecting them over time and have most of them in the line now, and I reach for them more often than any other lip products!

  124. Miriam says:

    Just saw straight outta Compton!!!! Really great movie!!! Check it out!!!

  125. Sandy Pincombe says:

    Who talks a lot? Hands down…my lovely, sweet Mother. Love the colors of the MAC lipsticks you have on this post and sure would love to own one. My hubster had rotator cuff surgery on Thursday and I need to treat myself so I don’t kill him.he is OCD and in a sling so it is up to me to make sure everything on his desk is perfect!! I need this win…please and thank you.

  126. Kellyn says:

    I don’t know if it’s the Best Lipstick Ever, but I just bought MAC Whirl and am LOVING IT.

  127. Tissiemoe says:

    My favorite lipstick of all time was made by Ultima II….an orange-pinkey coral that I hv been trying to track down since it no longer exists!!! MACs See Shear, and Crosswires come close, and so does Bobbi Brown’s Guava. I don’t remember the name of the lipstick, but one day I will find it!!! Karen, yr project is keeping us in suspense and can’t wait to find out what it is!

  128. Bailey Dexter says:

    I love baking! My kids and family have talked me into opening soon in a market

  129. Cindy says:

    It’s between MAC Ruby Woo, Kat Von D Underage Red (the original), and NARS Dragon Girl

  130. KATHERINE says:

    Dear Karen:

    Congratulations on your new Video job! Can’t wait to watch them. I have discovered a new lipstick and it is now my favorite. I have tried every cosmetic company and favored the expensive lipsticks thinking they are the best and it is not always the case. A new one by Maybelline, On Fire Red 895 is excellent; love the color, texture, staying power, etc. etc. It’s the best and only $7.00.


  131. Ashleigh says:

    Looking forward to the project!

    A word you pronounce differently than most people?
    Crayon. Midwest accent = cran!

  132. Amber says:

    I love the Tarte BB primer. It’s got spf and a bunch of other benefits. All the coverage I need on a good skin day.

  133. Lisa Foster says:

    My favorite non-sunscreen product with SPF is Bare Minerals original foundation. I’m not sure it is enough SPF coverage on its own, unless you really cake it on, but I like that it has some sun protection in it.

  134. Yelena says:

    Hi, Karen! My 4 year old son Sean talks a lot. He is a little chatterbox. Love your blog! 😘

  135. Olivia M says:

    My favorite non sunscreen product that contains SPF would be the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full Coverage foundation.

  136. Jessie C. says:

    My dad talks a lot A LOT.

  137. BooBooNinja says:

    Oooh, mystery project. Colour me excited. πŸ˜€

  138. Carolyn Rubin says:

    My favorite non sunscreen product with spa is It cosmetics cc foundation cream.

  139. Virginia says:

    I really like my LM tinted moisturizer. It has a bit of SPF in it.

  140. Joy says:

    I don’t know about all time favorite but my favorite lipstick lately has been MAC’s Hang Up.

  141. Kim Pincombe Cole says:

    What an exciting day for you yesterday – cannot wait to see the finished products!!!
    And to answer the question about someone I know who talks a lot? Without a doubt, my mom!! (Sorry Mom, if you’re reading this!)

  142. Amy Z. says:

    I can’t wear products with chemical sunscreen. My skin breaks out into a rash.

  143. BlackAsphodel says:

    Someone you know who talks A LOT? My mom’s sister; she’ll stand next to the bathroom door and continue talking while you’re doing whatever you need to do, lol.

  144. Maria J. says:

    Ever since Maybelline put out the Creamy Matte line I became obsessed with Touch of Spice so much that I bought 3 backups because I fear running out of it. To me, this will forever be my Holy Grail lipstick!

  145. Brenda says:

    I’m trying to adopt a kitten.

  146. Terri says:

    Your new project sounds great (even though Tabs’s photobombs are always welcome in the videos)!

  147. Maren says:

    I know several people who can talk endlessly.

  148. Christiana Mercier says:

    I just finished my masters degree and have –so far– not been able to find a job. My friends have been so nice and helpful and encouraging. I’m sure I’ll find my way to the right spot soon. —was just pondering how you said you hoped someone had done something nice for us.

  149. Kelly Kimmell says:

    My Mom talks a lot. She doesn’t have call-waiting and I have a difficult time getting through to her on the phone.

  150. Jen L says:

    Hello – I pronounce the word iron weirdly. Ask my friends. I think I say it like eye-run or something, I can’t personally hear it and I think they are crazy, whatevs.

  151. Lisa M. says:

    I hate pronouncing the word “author”. I will repeat it several times in hopes that it will finally come out right. Instead, I sound like a loon and just give up.

  152. Emily says:

    The biggest talker in my life is a newer friend, but I love it! She’s loving and friendly and has a huge heart.

  153. Cara says:

    I think I’m the person I know who talks the most! It’s hard to get me to stop talking!

  154. Rachel R. says:

    Happy Caturday! I hope you’re weekend is off to a good start. My mother talks almost constantly. She spends 5+ hours a day on personal calls on the telephone alone. She even talks in her sleep. It’s unbelievable.

    My older son talks an awful lot, too. At least I know where he gets it from. πŸ™‚

  155. Tracy Robertson says:

    I have to be careful when I pronounce the word Vietnamese, or it comes out Vietmanese, and I think that makes me sound like a kooky redneck, LOL!

  156. Heather G says:

    I moved from England to NY so, there’s a lot of words I pronounce differently. A couple that spring to mind are garage and aluminium.

  157. Lizzie says:

    My sister never stops talking haha

  158. Andrea says:

    I always fall during inopportune times! My biggest fear is that I will trip and fall as I walk across the stage to receive my college diploma!

  159. buckycatt says:

    K & T – Have you ever heard of the company Beauty Counter? I attended a party of the line today. I realize we should be safe w the chemicals we put on our body; but talk about sucking all the joy out of cosmetics!!!

  160. Poppy says:

    Congratulations Karen!! I’m so looking to finding out more about this project<3

  161. marisol says:

    Hi Karen, I like Mac Studio fix Fluid, until recently I noticed it contains SPF 15 :O I used to apply SPF before my foundation but was surprised my foundation already had it, just a little bonus, and who knew Mac had a NW18 and that was my color, just goes to show you can never know too much. Mac keeps on surprising. Have a nice weekend!

  162. BJW says:

    My five-year-old son talks a lot. The only time he doesn’t talk is when he’s engrossed in something on a screen (and we try to limit that time, which means he talks a lot!).

  163. Tammy says:

    My 13 yr old is Little Miss Chatterbox, from the moment she learned to talk. She giggles when I tell her she was born talking. πŸ˜€

  164. Susan Parker says:

    The following is a true “story”. Seriously!
    I was taking a shower with my hubby when, for no reason that I know of, I lost my footing. I grabbed the shower curtain in an effort to steady myself. My husband stared at me and told me to let go. I distinctly remember using a “bad” word or two and then I looked down. Turns out that the shower curtain wasn’t the only thing I had grabbed…a few hours later…our family doctor assured us that hubby’s “equipment” would be fully functional once the swelling subsided.

  165. lena says:

    my sister never stops talking, haha!

  166. Lisa C says:

    Ha, a word I pronounce different from others… Wednesdee lol

  167. Lori P says:

    My mother talks ALL the time. Yesterday we were both at the eye doctor and I had to tell her to STOP TALKING because the other patients in the waiting room were giving her such dirty looks (she tends to be loud too).

  168. Tania G says:

    We had our first garage sale today. It was fun but very hard, especially on a very hot and humid day. Got rid of a lot of junk though πŸ™‚

  169. DeniseS says:

    A woman I work with talks a lot. I don’t know how she has any voice left at the end of the day.

  170. margarita says:

    My all time favorite lipstick is Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy.

  171. Becky says:

    My favorite lipstick of all time is MAC Twig

  172. Alexis says:

    In high school, I was a cheerleader and we were a competitive bunch of cheerleaders. During on of our floor cheers, I did a toe touch and landed on my butt. We were all laughing so hard but we managed to finish the cheer perfectly, with my fall being the only thing that was screwed up. Talk about dedication! I still laugh about something that happened 16 years ago. But I had so much fun with all of those girls.

  173. LizzyLovesSatan says:

    pick me!!

  174. Ms. Elise says:

    Right now I’m loving Kat Von D’s liquid lipstick in Double Dare. I may have to try a Guerlain lipstick soon though because Double Dare is just a bit too bold and drying for work.

  175. Shelley says:

    Trying to decide if I *need* the shadow palette from the MAC Haute Dig collection. Gah. I have so many shadows but it looks like a great green eye pic.

  176. Suzanne C says:

    Girl, I hope you got some rest today! My new favorite relaxing thing to do is color. And I’m sooo interested to hear about this project!

  177. Pam says:

    My favorite lipstick of all time?! Definitely Sucre by Bite Beauty. It smells absolutely delicious and is the only lipstick I’ve found that actually stays on well!

  178. Meena says:

    Mac lipsticks and blushes are the best.

  179. Laurinha says:

    Hi Karen, have a nice weekend!!

  180. mrsshukra says:

    Always tripping, clumsy!

    Best lipstick of all time: NARS Dolce Vita

  182. Jenn says:

    My bff talks a lot! I’m the opposite!

  183. Cherie says:

    Can’t wait to hear about your new project and videos! My favorite product – Perricone’s No foundation foundation. SPF 30 and just enough coverage for me πŸ™‚

  184. Marne says:

    I’m makeup-challenged, the best I can manage is moisturizer and lip balm.

  185. Sherry P says:

    I JUST tripped over a concrete drive last week and have some serious road rash on my knees and wrist. Embarrassing and had a guy ask me if I had fun “on top” since my knees looked like carpet burns. Dear Lord have mercy!!!!

  186. Nikki says:

    I was rummaging through my makeup and came across an unopened tube of Evolution Revolution!!

  187. mclasb says:

    yes, once at school i won the best dressed girl’s award and i was so happy to get it, and i was gonna go home and on the stairs of the school, there was a gang og guys who was sitting there. those were you know those guys from the school that everyone avoids. so i tripped in front of them and ripped my dress. and they laughed so hard. i have never been so humiliated and appreciated on the same day like this. but oh well, i got an award πŸ˜›

  188. Keri says:

    My fave lipstick is Retsina by Bite. No matter how much my skin color fluctuates (see through ghost in winter to sun-kissed color in summer), it’s the most perfect nude ever! It looks great when I’m trying to look like I’m not trying too hard πŸ˜‰ and when I am trying to look like I’m trying too hard.

  189. Donna says:

    I spent a lot of time mediating between cats last week. We have 5, and they don’t all get along. There are 4 males, all of them “found kitties”. The 2 biggest ones are always having stare-down contests. My little black boy just wants to play with all of them, and another of the boys is the sweetest cat ever, he never hisses, swats, growls, nothing. He just wants petted. He only has 1 eye and is very skinny even though we feed him a lot. I need my money to keep taking him to the vet to find out why he’s so skinny, so a MAC gift certificate would be great! Although I love all of these kitties, I just lost my 18 year old girl kitty in May and I still miss her so much. She never left my side if I was home so her absence is so noticeable. I try to distract myself by shopping online for pretty things.
    My favorite lipstick is MAC’s Rebel. I hope that you have a relaxing, restful weekend, Karen!

  190. Whitney says:

    I would love to buy the Miley Cyrus viva glam lipstick and lipglass before the new ones come out!

  191. Amanda says:

    MAC Viva Glam Rihanna!

  192. Erica says:

    MAC Heroine!

  193. Maddie says:

    I painted my nails bright coral today. It’s perfect for summertime.

  194. HeraKitty says:

    IT Cosmetics CC cream is my everyday go-to. ☺️

  195. Stephanie says:

    My favorite product that has spf and isn’t sunscreen would have to be this lotion that Lubriderm makes with spf. It’s a nice 2 for 1 special for days when you feel especially lazy.

  196. Janet says:

    Love your blog! I’m procrastinating about school right now, reading some makeup posts. I should get to work…

  197. Stacy says:

    Oxoxo.. I am that human that talks a lot :)))) Can’t help myself.

  198. Julie Murphy says:

    I talk a lot.

  199. Unfortunately I am a big clutz and have even fallen up the stairs lol thanks

  200. Johanna says:

    I’m the one that talks a lot!

  201. Ana says:

    Ooh can’t wait to see those videos?
    Gah, I don’t think I can do a best lippie of all time, but my favorite at the moment is “Serenity” Hydra Matte liquid lipstick by Gerard cosmetics. It’s a pink with brown tones…perfect for everyday but the formula is what had me smitten. Not drying at all!

  202. Paulina says:

    What do you do in your free time?

  203. Agnes says:

    Do you prefer orange or purple lipstick?

  204. Fo says:

    I love this blog

  205. JESSICA C says:

    I drop the r off every word and everyone knows I’m from Boston.. yup.

  206. Jen says:

    Lip balm with SPF!

  207. Teresa Luong says:

    Sounds like a fun project!! Can’t wait to see it!
    A word I pronounce differently: compromise–but only sometimes! I have to catch myself before I pronounce it like “come-promise” instead of “compro-mise”.

  208. Aimen A says:

    If you need someone to talk to.. MY LITTLE SISTER SARA!!

  209. Daria says:

    I talk a lot πŸ˜€

  210. Hazel says:

    My favorite collaboration was Sharon Osborne and MAC

  211. Linda says:

    You look so cute on that set! I love that you’re wearing practical footwear underneath.

    I know a couple of people who talk a lot. I often psych myself out by overthinking how to start a conversation, so it’s such a fascinating skill to me that some people can just talk and talk to anyone.

  212. Noirojos says:

    Best colab to me was Rihanna and Mac…beautiful shades!

  213. Catherine says:

    My favorite non-sunscreen product with SPF is either my Supergoop makeup setting spray with SPF 50 or my tinted moisturizer which has an SPF of 35 in it πŸ™‚

  214. amy pugmire says:

    My mama talks way too much! πŸ˜‰

  215. Rachel says:

    I say colander weird, but it’s not entirely my fault – my mom says it wrong! She always said COE-lander, with a long O, instead of CAHL-lander. I had no idea I was saying it wrong my entire life, until I was in my mid-twenties and used it in a work meeting and everyone busted out laughing!! I could have slapped my mom in that moment!! LOL

  216. Himanshu Sekhar Sethi says:

    My best friend rambles a lot about every small incident that happens in his life. He speaks with such a great interest that your interest gets depleted.

  217. Isabella says:

    I’m really excited for for the week to come. My sister is going to NY and she will get me some makeup that we don’t have here in Europe! πŸ˜€

  218. Undamaris says:

    Yves Saint Laurent VOLUPTÉ SHEER CANDY is my ideal lipstick

  219. Becca M says:

    Can’t wait to hear/see more about the new project!

  220. Annou says:

    my relationship with my ma was filled with angst, questions and repressed anger. We had a tough time communicating. Now she has advanced mixed dementia. I moved in to look after her. Suddenly all the angst and questions, anger have disappeared. They seem so iirrelevant in the larger scheme of things. I have no idea how or why this change occoured. But im grateful that life gave me a chance to drop the baggage which weighed me down!

  221. Makyla says:

    Hmm, I posted a comment earlier, but it’s not showing up! Sorry if this posts twice!

    That sounds so exciting, Karen! Can’t wait to hear about it! My favorite non-sunscreen SPF product is the Josie Maran Perfect and Protect Tinted Moisturizer. I love it! It’s funny because I hated it so much when I first got it that it almost went back, but I’m so glad I hung on to it! It’s just great! Have a wonderful weekend, Karen!

  222. debbie says:

    I fell once on a blind date when I was trying to impress this funny guy with beautiful red hair. I dressed up in lovely little heels, great outfit but was wearing contacts for the first time Tripped at the cinema on the edge of the carpet and face planted right in front of Mr cutie He picked me up, brushed me down and asked if I was ok with a hint of laughter I burst into laughter and he did too and I married him 3 years later and we’ve been together for 18 years now πŸ™‚

  223. Jana says:

    Can’t wait to hear more about your project! Best lipstick of all time has to be YSL’s Rouge VoluptΓ© Shine in Pink in Confidence. I love everything about it!

  224. Caro says:

    Reading about your projects makes me want to get done with mine πŸ™ˆ
    Anyway my ideal lipstick is mac’s viva glam 1. I love how it looks in combination with my pale skin

  225. Lisa says:

    I’m looking forward to those videos.

  226. Melody says:

    I love this!!!! Can’t wait to see what’s is in store for MBB! Cosmetics line?!?! Yes no maybe…… Love Mac always wanted to try ruby woo because I’m so ghostly pale and it’s a blue red but could never afford it….anyways I’m sure you got reall exciting things coming good luck to everyone entering and congrats to the winner! I hope it’s me but I would be equally as excited for whoever the actual winner is!!!

  227. Leah says:

    Congrats on the new project, can’t wait to hear more! If I had to pick an all time favorite lipstick it would probably be Mac’s craving. It’s looks so great on a range of skintones and I think it suits me all year round! πŸ™‚

  228. Vani Venugopal says:

    I have had acne on my face since I was 11 and now I have come to terms with it. When I wear some makeup, maybe just some lipstick and eyeliner, I love how my own focus goes from the acne scars and acne on my cheeks to my other accentuated features, and I feel good, instantly. I can’t take the trouble to cover up with foundation and concealer daily and what little I do does a lot for me. Magic of makeupa and doing a little something just for youself!

  229. Laura says:

    Congratulations for your project! Good luck!

    The best moisturizer I have for Madrid superhot and dry wheather is Clinique’s Superdefense SPF 20.

  230. Kirsten says:

    Can’t wait to see your new video project! Will it be an ongoing thing?

    What’s your favorite non-sunscreen product that contains SPF?
    The Balm’s BalmShelter. I like the light coverage and usually I can smell the sunscreen in my moisturizer products (Kiehl’s, I’m looking at you!) but not in this one. I think it must be the titanium dioxide kind maybe?

  231. Tiffany says:

    Non-sunscreen fav for SPF are my lip balms! Don’t forget your lips need sun protection, too. πŸ™‚

  232. Gvenda says:

    My Korean bb cremes contain 25 spf. I love that Koreans are so obsessed with bright skin – i’ts a really good spf to have for a bb cream

  233. Alex says:

    My younger brother talks enough to cover for both of us, as I’m usually the quieter one when we’re out and he’s a lot more social (and good on him, it’s certainly a desirable trait!).

  234. Tessa says:

    My daughter can talk for England and I absolutely love it as you never know what she is going to come out with next.

  235. Rhoda K says:

    My Mum and my sister talk A LOT! Husband claims I do too, but I don’t buy it.

  236. Lucy Nguyen says:

    My mom loves to talk so she would like to have a coffee break with me every week to share her stories.

  237. Emiliya Petkova says:

    My little daughter talks a lot. πŸ˜€

  238. Liz says:

    There are a few people at work who talk a lot where you can’t really ask them about themselves because they still are talking away 30 minutes later. :-/

  239. Lorraine says:

    My favorite product that has SPF and isn’t sunscreen is my MEMEME Flawless foundation because i need to wear sunscreen everyday but dont like that greasy sunscreen feeling on my face.

  240. Lou says:

    Best lipstick of all time: Rouge Dior in Fantastic Plum

  241. Jessie barrett says:

    My favorite lipstick of all time is probably full frontal by nars because the color is so cool it’s like a purplish pink and the formula is so creamy!

  242. Linds says:

    I love the nail polishes OPI did with Gwen Stephani.

  243. Effie says:

    My BFF talks SO much. I just moved cross country and when I call to chat and catch up we are on the phone for hours because she just talks and talks and talks.

  244. Aenea says:

    I’m glad the nars tinted moisturizer and the ysl youth liberator foundation both have spf, specially since I’m having an allergic reaction in using just a suncream.

  245. Genesis says:

    I sometimes talk a lot and drive my husband crazy!!

  246. Janea M says:

    I do remember this one time at school, I was rushing to the music room. I tipped and capsized with my bag on my back in front of everyone.

  247. Lyse Davitt says:

    My niece Jillian. She is almost 30 now but even at three she could talk.

  248. Coline T. says:

    A word you pronounce differently than most people? Wednesday. “d” with “n” is hard to say for me ^.^

  249. Kalli Melia says:

    I talk alot… to the point where I’m out with friends for dinner and still have not eaten more than a couple bites and they are waiting to order dessert. They will (and have done a million times) stop talking and make me eat first.

  250. Marie says:

    oh man best lipstick of all time is tough, but i’m gonna have to go with lipstick queen sinner in deep red. it’s the most perfect neutral red on me and the formula is so nice

  251. Dominique says:

    My favorite lipsticks of all time have to be mac’s viva glam II and Myth.

  252. Dominique says:

    My favorite lipsticks of all time have to be mac’s viva glam II

  253. Karenine says:

    A word that I pronounce differently than most people? Oh boy, it has to be “drawers”!

  254. Hollie says:

    Thanks again for another opportunity to win this amazing prize. The worst place I had tripped was at my college graduation. I had slid my sore feet out of my brand new heels while 1/2 listening to all the long winded speeches. I clearly wasn’t paying attention when my row was called up. My heels had cute little buckle straps on the sides of them. Well, needless to say, I didn’t have a chance to get my feet back into the shoes properly and there was no time to do so. As we were all walking, I was trying to wiggle my feet into the shoes just enough to walk without looking like I was drunk. That was a huge fail. As I was walking and wiggling my ankle turned outward and I tripped into the person in front of me. That person was pushed forward and so on down the line. I thought I had gotten away with it until everyone started to clap. Thankfully my degree is in Science and not in Fashion Design!!!

  255. Farah D says:

    I love my olay moisturizer with SPF!

  256. Celia says:

    How exciting!!! Can’t wait to see these videos!!

    And I can’t wait for MACxEllie Goulding, can’t come soon enough. Have a restful weekend πŸ™‚

  257. brianna reynolds says:

    I think that I’m that someone that talks a lot. I feel like I’m always talking lol!

  258. Stephanie says:

    That’s so exciting that you got to make videos! I hope we get to see them soon. Do you think Tabs will also get the opportunity to make some? My crazy tortie would love to watch some cat makeup videos. She always grumbles about how hard it is to learn new techniques.

    What’s your favorite non-sunscreen product that contains SPF?
    Most of the foundation I wear contains sunscreen, I appreciate that most brands are adding it these days.

    Someone you know who talks A LOT?
    Oh boy, one of my coworkers talks a lot. Her stories are really boring because she includes every insignificant detail. Sometimes she gets sidetracked and starts rambling about something else, then remembers her original story. OMG. She also adds information that would normally be implied, if I was telling the same story I assume the person I’m talking to knows already. She’s a really sweet person, but sometimes I cringe when I see her coming because I know I’m trapped for a good 15 minutes.

    Have you ever tripped or fallen at an inopportune moment?
    I haven’t but my husband did. We were in NYC, walking around Rockefeller Plaza on a busy Sunday afternoon. He tripped on the curb. One second he’s walking next to me, the next second I looked over and he was on the ground! A woman sitting on a bench nearby saw him go down and she shouted “I just did that! Are you ok?” He was unharmed but mortified. He jumped back up and said “I’m fine” I’ve done other terribly embarrassing things.

    Your pick for Best Lipstick of All Time?
    For me Urban Decay Revolution lipstick in Turn On is my color. I get compliments whenever I wear it. It’s not really a unique color but I guess with my coloring it works.

    A word you pronounce differently than most people? Husband and I say a lot of things wrong on purpose. One of my favorites is “moot point” we say “moo point” (from Friends) there are others but I can’t think of them now. It usually comes from someone else mispronouncing something. We like to say “interwebs” instead of the “internet”

  259. Bertha says:

    Best lipstick of all time: NARS Dolce Vita.

  260. Jade says:

    I cannot figure out how to say tousled the right way for the life of me.

    What’s your favorite non-sunscreen product that contains SPF? Fresh Sugar tinted lip balms :). I like rose or honey for everyday use or plum or coral for a bit more kick. They do move around a bit on my lips if I put too much on so one swipe is about all I need.

  262. Cathy Oppedisano says:

    Would like to go to a lake or the beach that is more secluded and private than the usual spots so I don’t have to look like I go to the gym and eat sprouts every day when I’m in my bathing suit. Did have tofu for breakfast. An instant breakfast option with no cooking involved.

  263. Meg says:

    Favorite non-sunscreen SPF product is my Garnier Moisture Rescue. Awesome for my oily skin and smells amazing!

  268. Sarah W says:

    I guess my fav non-sunscreen SPF product is probably my Neutrogena tinted moisturizer (Healthy Skin Enhancer). But, maybe my Jack Black lip balm too! It doesn’t have that gross taste…

  302. monica says:

    Oh wow! Looking forward to your project! I hope it’s a makeup collab πŸ™‚ My favorite non-sunscreen product that has SPF is MAC studio fix powder with SPF15. Makes you feel better to have another layer of protection over your actual sunscreen. I hear there are facial mists with SPF but I’ve never tried any…

  303. Narie says:

    Can never forget a lipstick that has some sunscreen on it. It’s crazy to think that people don’t pay close attention to the lips. I’m obsessed with the new Mac Whirl lipstick.

  304. Kristen says:

    My pick for the best lipstick of all time has to be MAC’s Cyber.

  306. Jessica says:

    What’s your favorite non-sunscreen product that contains SPF? Skin79 BB Cream
    Someone you know who talks A LOT? Many people. One in particular comes to mind. She has NO inner censor and says whatever pops into her head. She ends up looking like a ditz and offends people.
    Have you ever tripped or fallen at an inopportune moment? I tripped on a rug in front of cops. I must have looked suspicious!
    A word you pronounce differently than most people? Apparently “Won”.

    My vote for best lipstick is Lolita from Kat von D. I adore this shade, wear it at least 3-4 times a week!

  318. Tanika says:

    I absolutely love MAC Heaux (the original one). It goes great with my brown skin tone and is a beautiful mix between berry and red.

    I am such a klutz, so there are MANY tripping/falling moments! One of the most embarrassing though was back in high school. I was walking up the stairs with my crush, talking and flirting, yada yada yada, when my toe got caught on the top step. I completely ate it, and actually had to go to the ER and have my foot x-rayed. Everything was fine, I would have needed stitches but the skin was completely ripped off in the fall!
    Let’s just say our flirtationship officially ended that day, haha.

    Exciting news!!!! πŸ™‚
    My favorite product containing SPF is EstΓ©e Lauder’s Day Wear Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant Sheer Tint Release Moisturizer SPF 15. Wow, longest name ever, but I love it because it makes me look less dead. Best lipstick? That’s a though one. I really like the Rouge Eclat in woodrose by Clarins. I always come back to it. Cruella by Nars is also great. But I am addicted to the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments. They are amazing in every single shade.
    A word I pronounce differently is the German word for Thursday (Donnerstag). My dad came up with it some time ago. At first we pronounced it that way just to tease him, but now my whole family is stuck with it πŸ™‚

  337. Renee says:

    I agree about MAC + Lady Gaga. Best collaboration ever- both are edgy, yet FABULOUS!

  338. Aditi says:

    I can’t even begin to narrow it down to a single Best Lipstick, but I have been all about the Revlon HD ones this summer- best drugstore brand lipstick, for sure! “Hydrangea” is a lot of fun.

    Have you ever tripped or fallen at an inopportune moment?
    A few years ago, my husband and I worked like 3 blocks from each other, so we would meet up for lunch a few times a week. He asked for iced coffee on a hot summer day, so I bought us each one and headed over to his job. Wearing 4 inch heeled sandals and a short WHITE dress, my clumsy self tripped over a NYC sidewalk, coffee went flying ON ME, and I fell face down, ass up… in the middle of Rockerfeller Center. I rushed to his job, called my boss stating I felt sick and was heading home, and hailed a $40 cab home LOL

    My funniest trait is that when I wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom…I usually am still mostly asleep. And when I try to find my bed on the way back, I have walked into walls (hard), and have thought I felt the edge of my bed…and smacked my head on a dresser (I think)! I usually only remember hitting my head, and not really what happened before and after!!! LOL

I wil trip like I do nothing else all day. And no, I ain’t no cat, so I don’t end on my little paws.. I end on my but.

    Best musical makeup collaboration between a brand and an artist?
    I think the collab with Santigold and Smashbox was really cool. The colors were very different and it felt like it was something she would wear.

    Your pick for Best Lipstick of All Time?
    I absolutely love MAC’s Chili. It kind of makes me feel like an old Hollywood starlet. It gives me so much confidence whenever I wear it. There are plenty of nicer lipsticks out there but this one just holds a special place in my heart.

  376. Katie F says:

    First lipstick I bought for myself was MAC Viva Glam I. Still my favorite, such a great red (which is, not incidentally, my favorite color)! πŸ™‚

    This is already probably closed but I find the questions fun (just like this beauty blog ^-^) and want to answer them.

    What’s your favorite non-sunscreen product that contains SPF?
    My Shini Star BB Cream! It’s my precious!

    Someone you know who talks A LOT?
    My sister… and I’ll have you know I just recently perfected the fine art of transtioning from listening intently to zoned out without batting an eye when her cute stories become long villainous monologues.

    Best musical makeup collaboration between a brand and an artist?
    Can’t really say if there is a “best” since any collections I can recall are so different from each other, but perhaps Miley’s Viva Glam if only for the hot pink disco shimmer glitter fairy dust out the wahzoo gloss that fufilled my inner four year old?

    Have you ever tripped or fallen at an inopportune moment?
    Fifth grade. In front of my entire class. Tripped on my OWN backpack. Will that suffice? I’m still cringing…

    Your pick for Best Lipstick of All Time?
    YSL Glossy Stain…Not a lipstick but still my fave thing in the universe since besides pizza…?

    A word you pronounce differently than most people?

  385. ula says:

    you’re a busy bee! I’ve never been a big lipstick person, but lately discovered that if I’m too lazy to put on makeup, I just grab a nice lipstick+mascara+some blush and I’m good to go. My summer favorite has been a very orangey red from Bourjois
