MAC Cosmo Lipstick ($17), a pink coco with an Amplified finish

You’re gonna have to be rising and shining for the both of us today, my makeup-loving friend, because this here lipstick lover has a cold.

Yub, by doze id dodally sdubbed ub. 🙁


But Tabs has been a wonderful nurse. He’s been making me soup and keeping me company on the couch (I ended up not going to the symphony, poo). Yesterday I watched so much TV it’s ridiculous. I even watched Dirty Dancing for the one thousandth time, and by the way, nobody puts baby in the corner. I’m serious — nobody. You do NOT even want to try it, haha.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Tabs and I will be over here living vicariously through you.

  1. Julie says:

    I am so proud of all the Registered Nurses who gathered together to educate the panel of “The View” and the public on the work of professional nurses. Also, painted my nails “Blaze” by Zoya this week to usher in Autumn. Love the little sparklies in the polish!

    • Lala Reed says:

      I would say the hardest thing about my job is being a mother and running my company. Sometimes it’s just hard to balance. Simply Stylash La-la

  2. Joselyn Hernandez says:

    I like running so I would say my favorite equipment at the gym is the treadmill, but I prefer to run outside.

  3. Dawn says:

    I love the urban decay revolution lipsticks. The pigmentation is awesome. They don’t drag when you apply them but they aren’t so creamy that they move all over the place.

    I have to admit, I really want MAC Cosmo now. It looks beautiful on you, Karen!

  4. Agata says:

    Oh Karen, please feel better! hugs!

    I do my nails every Sunday, so tomorrow is time for that again!

    I hope you feel better soon!

  6. Sienna says:

    feel better soon!!!

  7. Meghan says:

    I just got a promotion and I’ve started a Master’s program so lots of learning ahead! Definitely two challenging things about my job and school! Haha 😜

  8. Rekia Edu says:

    Last night I went on adventure in Sephora (typical Friday night) I tried YSL’s Black Opium fragrance (amongst other things) and fell in love but couldn’t afford it. So I got a sample. Hehe

  9. Alicia says:

    I religiously get my nails done every 2 weeks. I have to do gel because I’m crazy anal about chips but I work with my hands. So it’s the only thing that works for me. I can only wear shades of pinks or reds for work, so it takes some creativity.

  10. Anu Liza Thomas says:

    I have started my first teaching job and I am kind of struggling to keep my cool. I have been working on my patience since 2 months and I am proud to say that I have come a long way 😊

  11. Allie says:

    I love lip creams! I cannot explain why. Just got the new Nyx Suede. Also love the Milani Lip Cream’s that just out. Possibly the way they look shiny when they get applied then it turns matte and stays on. So neat. Possibly the soft/velvet applicator. Hmmmm…

  12. Sayaka says:

    My friend recently gave me a lipstick because she realized that she didnt like the color on her. When I tried it, she loved it on me and so she decided to just give it. Have you ever tried a lipstick color that you liked at first but then realized it wasnt your color or type? Do you give it away too? If yes, who are your favorite recipients?

  13. Susannah says:

    I bought a tube of MAC’s Paramount lipstick on whim 10 years ago, and I have not worn another color since. 10 years of dedicated love.* It is the perfect red… and Karen, I do hope you feel better soon!

    *A notable exception is when I purchased Peggy Carter’s lipstick from Besame. All women want to be like Peggy.

  14. jessica says:

    What’s the hardest thing about your job (or school)?

    getting out of bed.

  15. Farah D says:

    The hardest thing about work is never finding a place/time to sit so my legs swell up!

  16. Alix says:

    My fave is YSL’s Glossy Stains!

  17. Nicole says:

    My favorite lipsticks of all time would have to be the kat von d everlasting lasting liquid lipsticks. ..I’m obsessed with them have a good weekend (:

  18. Megan says:

    I am dying to add a few plum/violet lipsticks to my routine this fall1

  19. Maria says:

    I love Dirty Dancing! I must have seen it a hundred times and it never gets old

  20. Christina says:

    I can’t wait to get my nails done next weekend. Nails here I come!

  21. Coleen says:

    I love the color of that lipstick, pink cocoa.

  22. susan says:

    Love work but the hardest thing about it is the dysfunctional adults!

  23. I can’t stop thinking about our wedding and honeymoon! It’s been a few weeks now since we got back, but both the wedding and Hawaii are still on my mind all the time, I just feel so happy 🙂

  24. Amy says:

    The hardest thing about my job is that my clients are either crazy or on drugs.

  25. Silvia Johanidesova says:

    I’m working in spedition&logistic branch and it’s really stressfull job,you have to be multitasking when you pick up the phone while you’re writing and email and your colleague sitting next to you ask you some stupidities…so minimum are 3 things to do at the same time,sometimes it’s really hard…
    Kisses Silvia

  26. buckycatt says:

    K & T – Seeing your MAC post earlier this week made me go dig out my Brave Red. Such a lovely color. Would the Roses cremesheen glass be complementary? Be well Hotstuff & Lil Mama!!

  27. Colleen Boudreau says:

    The last time I did my nails was about 3 weeks ago.

  28. Cindy says:

    I think my favorite lipstick formula of all time was the original Kat Von D lipstick in Underage Red. I haven’t tried the new one yet but the old one DOES. NOT. MOVE. once it’s on! My favorite lip primer of all time was the Paula Dorf Perfect Illusion for lips – it made ANY lipstick stay on for AT LEAST 12 hours!! My life was shattered when it was discontinued. I tried MAC’s Prep + Prime lip but I was just settling. The CLOSEST one to the original Paula Dorf formula is Urban Decay’s Ultimate Ozone. I can’t take the trauma if that one gets discontinued, LOL.

  29. Kimberly says:

    I can’t stop thinking about Pumpkin Spice Lattes and boots and oversized sweaters now that Fall has arrived.

  30. rosalyn says:

    Feel better !! =)

  31. Leena says:

    I don’t think that matte is my favorite texture of lipstick, but I do tend to gravitate to colors that happen to be matte

  32. Laura says:

    My favorite at the gym is the arc trainer.

  33. Michelle says:

    I can’t wait until I receive my vintage 3-tier cake stand from Etsy!

  34. Lizzie says:

    My favorite excercise is Zumba!!!

  35. Kelly says:

    My favorite lipstick formula of all time is MAC lipsticks, they’re always really smooth on my lips and last. Other lipsticks are always fading away which is annoying to have to reapply.

  36. Gina says:

    Awe…so sorry to hear you have a cold. That sucks. I just did my nails today – a dark purple gel by Revlon. Feel BETTER SOON!!!

  37. Melissa says:

    I can’t stop thinking about halloween and my costume!

  38. Nicole says:

    Happy Caturday!

  39. Maria Cook says:

    I am a MAC lipstick junky. I love it.

  40. Bianca Rogoveanu says:

    Just finished doing my nails !

  41. Debora Brezoi says:

    My favourite lipstick tinish is Satin finish from MAC. I love it. Its very pigmented, not too shiny but not too dry, and a secret: you can obtain a matte finish if you dab MAC matte on top of the lipstick! Love it.

  42. Cherry Ann Villagomez says:

    I can’t stop thinking about the Road to Ultra Concert!

  43. Shannon Mackey says:

    I cannot stop thinking about Fall and sweaters and warm drinks. My favorite time of the year!!

  44. Andrea Darst says:

    I can’t stop thinking about the Garth Brooks concert we’re going to tonight!! Hope you feel better!!

  45. Lauren says:

    I’m a huge liquid lipstick fan, and I think my favorite formula is KVD’s. For more traditional lipsticks, I’d probably have to go for Mac satin finishes, but I don’t really have too much to compare with them.

  46. Anastassia says:

    I use lip balm and then lipstick. Always. I did my nails two weeks ago.

  47. Susan T. says:

    Get better soon Karen! Luckily Tabs is there for you! I had a totally miserable, sleepless night last night. I’m battling Lyme disease which irritates the nervous system and I woke up last night feeling like I had mosquito bites on every inch of my skin! I wanted to scratch my skin right off but scratching doesn’t help because it’s not a real itch. 🙁 My kitty Peter knew something was wrong and cuddled me all night. When I gave in and tried to scratch he put his paw on my hands to stop me! Cats totally know when you need them and truly do care about us. I hope this gave you a smile this morning. Petey’s getting his favorite tuna rice ball from the sushi place today! Lol!

  48. Rhoda K says:

    I did my nails last night 😀 – rockin Friday night!

  49. Elizabeth M. says:

    I’m battling a cold too 🙁 hope you feel better!

  50. Chasity Mckinzie says:

    I can’t stop thinking about this vitamin i was taking and how it caused so much trouble in my face. I took biotin and had the worse break out of my life. I have finally got it out of my system and my face is finally healing. It was so stressful and depressing. I have a new found respect for people dealing with acne on a regular basis.

  51. Ragy R. says:

    I love the fall and all the comfort food I can dig into.

  52. Deretta says:

    I have been to a NASCAR race. Sigh. I bought my husband tickets one Valentine’s Day and thought he would take a friend. He took me. Sigh.

  53. Denise S says:

    The hardest part of my job is getting up early. Six a.m. seems to come awfully fast every day.

  54. Nan S. says:

    I can’t stop thinking about cool, crisp fall days and warm, spicy chili by the fire! 🙂

  55. Trillina Palemi says:

    I’ve never been in a race NASCAR

  56. Lisa Brown says:

    i can’t start thinking about food.

  57. Makyla says:

    I hope you feel better real soon, Karen! Take extra care this weekend!

  58. Amoure Jones says:

    Happy Saturday Karen,

    I’m sorry to hear you’re not feeling well, but it’s good to know Tabs is there to take care of you.

    What’s your favorite lipstick formula of all time (among all brands)?

    Retro Matte

    I can’t stop thinking about __________.

    my boyfriend

    Have you ever been to a NASCAR race?

    Never, but it does seem like so much fun.

    When was the last time you did your nails?

    I actually just took my acrylics off so I plan on doing my nails this week.

  59. Kalli says:

    I have a few favorite lipstick formulas! I really like Urban Decay’s Revolution Lipstick, lots of pigment and it feels nice on. I also really like Maybelline’s matte formula, very velvety and not drying. I only have one but the L’Oreal Reds are awesome! And some of Revlon’s creme lipsticks are really nice, like Fire & Ice and Cherries in the Snow. Lastly, I also love MAC’s Creamsheen.

  60. Analy Rodriguez says:

    My favorite lipstick formula is the one from the Soft Matte lip creams from NYX, they dry super fast and leave a good matte finish that lasts for a while.

  61. aradhana says:

    hope you feel better soon, karen!

    my favourite lipstick formulas are usually satins or mattes…i don’t have one all time favourite brand though.

  62. roz says:

    My fave lipstick is surprisingly Wet n Wild Megalast. Mostly cause it is the only lipstick that doesn’t make me break out on my lips.

  63. Brian says:

    I can’t stop thinking about what happened on How To Get Away with Murder and Scandal!

  64. Amy says:

    The hardest part of my job is having to wait for others to make decisions that affect what I do.

  65. Angela says:

    I love wearing MAC’s Snob with UD’s midnight cowboy gloss layered over it. Immaculate!

  66. Isabella says:

    I can’t stop thinking about creme brûlée.. better make some soon 😉

  67. Maria says:

    Yes, I have been to many NASCAR races. I start with the first race in Daytona Beach and end with the championship race in Homestead, FL. It’s a lot of fun, and hubby and I enjoy going to the tracks and cheering on our favorite drivers (#s 48 & 88). Hope you feel better soon!

  68. Cory says:

    Oh man, I’m so feelin’ for you, Karen. I literally just got over a cold that lasted like 8-9days? The incubation period was sooo long. I was like, “am I getting sick?”, “is it going away?”—for the 1st three days, & then got hammered with a head cold which then led to my chest.
    I’m on the total opposite side of the country tho! Good ‘ol Northeast PA (I’m almost at the same latitude as Eugene, OR—where I used to live, & will always miss horribly)!
    But yeah, immune system for two 🙂
    Try, & have a good weekend in spite of that darn cold. Binge watch movies or something..? El Hub will wait on you & Baby Girl. & of course take care of King/Queen Tabs lol

  69. Jocelyn says:

    I last did my nails probably a month ago, and I’ve just had clear polish on since everything got too chipped. I need to make time to give myself a mani/pedi this weekend.

  70. Krystle says:

    By Terry hyaluronic sheer nude lippies are my HG!

  71. Liz says:

    I am doing my nails today. I do manis weekly and pedis about every two weeks.

  72. Anne says:

    I love really pigmented lip glosses. Buxom Brandi and MAC lipglass in Desire are my favorites. My kiddos and I just got over a Back to school cold. Bleh. Hope you feel better soon!

  73. Kater says:

    -Guerlain Rouge G/Bite Luminous Creme. For a long time I ONLY bought Rouge G lipsticks, but thanks to Sephora’s 250 point Bite lipstick giveaway, I may be a convert.

  74. Aeris says:

    I really love the MAC frost lipstick and the Chanel Rouge Coco shine!

  75. Aurelie Red says:

    I did my nails four days ago (a beautiful burgundy ♥) and I think I will did them again tommorow !

  76. Niki T. says:

    I last did my nails about 4 days ago. I’ve since split my thumb nail pretty deep and it hurts to even wash my hands, so I’m having to let it grow some before I can attempt to put nail polish remover on it. So, I’ll be living with chipped nails til then. 🙁

  77. Jennifer says:

    I love NASCAR and have been to quite a few races. I live in New Hampshire and that’s where they’re racing this weekend. It’s always a lot of fun. Being at a race involves every one of your senses. Many of the drivers are very kind to their young fans. My son has met most of them.

  78. Lynn T. says:

    I can’t stop thinking about wanting a new job with better pay it’s getting harder to get by.

  79. Sandy says:

    Sorry to hear that you’re sick Karen, that’s a bummer. My favorite formula of lipstick hands down is MAC’s lustre formula. I don’t need too much pigmentation but I do need moisture and this lipstick is the perfect balance of both and they have many color options. Take Care of yourself.

  80. Marissa L says:

    MAC Lustres have to be my absolute favorite lipstick formula! And the hardest thing about college has to be managing homework and being on a sports team as well

  81. Brwnfruit says:

    The hardest thing about school is multitasking, it’s the weekend, I’m completely spent but have chores, homework and kids heads to do.

  82. Shabeen says:

    Get well soon Karen 🙂
    Oh I cant stop dreaming about randon things. You know that feeling when u sleep so light that you cant differentiate whether it was a dream or reality!! But lately i have been having funny dreams!! Like my freind had a pet dog who could talk.. Guess my brain like playing with its imagination!!
    By the way love ur blog.. Say hi to tabs.. ohh wish my dog could make soup too <3

  83. Trudy Erickson says:

    I have been stuck in all summer post surgery Karen. I sympathize greatly… Arizona is still 100 and I’m going nuts! I’d like to start a blog…Take care, you’re in a beautiful area so you’ll be out soon 😎

  84. latanya says:

    I can’t stop thinking about ice cream

  85. Ashley says:

    My favorite formula would have to be the YSL glossy stain! It’s not drying at all and I like how the color is suspended in a layer of moisture. It also feels really luxurious.

  86. Sylvia says:

    I ruined my nails in June with a horrible acrylic job and they are still recovering. Never again! I hope to be able to start doing them at home in a few weeks when the last of the damage has grown out.

  87. Georgina says:

    Hope you’re feelings better soon, Karen! I think I did my nails two weeks ago, so its about time for a new layer of nailpolish haha

  88. Anne-Marie says:

    I can’t stop thinking about my bronchitis. Boo.

  89. Shabeen says:

    Get well soon Karen😊

  90. Kathy T says:

    I can’t stop thinking about thai food. Yum!

  91. christine says:

    I am in my surgery rotation of medical school and I can’t do my nails at the moment because if they chip, they can contaminate patients or just not be a clean situation.

  92. Virginia says:

    I’ve never been to a NASCAR race, but they look like quite the experience.

  93. Eileen says:

    Feel better soon 🙂

    Also, MAC Cosmo looks gorgeous! I want to try it now 🙂

  94. Nisha says:

    I did my nails yesterday… w Revlon grey suede

  100. Stata says:

    I did my nails last night but I am one of the few people who can’t manage to keep their nails without chipping or destroying them for a day. I used Bobbi Brown’s “Port” with the MAC “Highlighter” topcoat, which gives a deer red and shiny blue pearl finish.

  101. Emily C says:

    I love the formula of Covergirl’s Lip Perfection lipsticks (RIP). They were so creamy, pigmented and long lasting.

  102. Lynette says:

    I really love matte lipsticks. I am into the whole liquid lipstick trend right now, but honestly I just love regular Revlon matte lipsticks, MAC pro longwear, and I’m eyeing the new Urban Decay matte lipsticks too. Waiting for the friends and family sale at Sephora with baited breath! 🙂

  103. Heather G says:

    I can’t stop thinking about Pope Francis.

  104. Shabeen says:

    Get well soon Karen

  105. Kim Pincombe Cole says:

    Being as that I live in the ‘Racing Capital of the World’ – it’s mandatory that everyone in Indianapolis attend a NASCAR, Indy Car, Formula 1, or MotoGP race. I’ve been to each!

  106. Winnie says:

    I can’t stop thinking about Christmas! I know there’s still a while left, but there’s something about fall and this time of the year that just puts me in that mindset, I can’t wait to get a tree, and wrap presents and drink hot chocolate while watching Christmas movies and listening Christmas songs on the radio!

  107. Jessie C. says:

    I have never been to a NASCAR race.

  108. Nika says:

    NARS Audacious, MAC Amplified or Cremesheen

    When was the last time you did your nails?
    1 week ago – they are due!

  112. Melissa says:

    Roses are red. Violets are blue. I think I will comment here. Really, because that’s cool.

  113. em says:

    i last got my nails done 2 weeks ago for a wedding

  114. Erica C says:

    awwww….having a cold while pregnant is THE WORST! I came down with a cold in my last tri-mester and it was awful. Lots of hot tea and honey and rest for you. Hugs!

    I am totally lemming the MAC Studio Waterweight foundation and a new fluidline brow cream (my HG brow product).

    I can stop thinking about fall comfort foods as fall sneaks up closer and closer to us in the northern midwest (I’m in Wisconsin).

  115. Farah says:

    My favorite lipsticks are the matte ones from Mac😍, love them so much. Get well soon,Karen!

  116. Kathy S says:

    I’m getting my first gel manicure this week- I’m hopeful that my manicure will last more than 13 minutes!

  117. I love love love that color. I can’t believe I still have not try any Mac products. I have to go now after seeing that color yassss!

  118. Al says:

    Hope you feel better soon 🙂 and thank you for the giveaway.

  119. Lisa Foster says:

    The last time I painted my nails was yesterday (Revlon Gel Envy Up the Ante). I like to paint them every couple days because I get bored wearing the same color too many days in a row.

  120. Wayne says:

    I’ll eat pumpkin pie once every few years to remind me how overrated everything pumpkin is! 😛

  121. Susan Parker says:

    I hope you and Baby Girl feel better soon. Ice-cream helps!

    Meanwhile, I can’t stop thinking about make-up!

  122. Elvan says:

    I did my nails just a few days ago, and they’re still going strong 🙂

  123. Kalli Melia says:

    I did my nails yesterday, a light pink holo. I love how it makes me happy when I see it sparkle in the light.

  124. Abby says:

    I can’t stop thinking about thanksgiving and christmas!!

  125. mandala says:

    My favorite form of exercise is Zumba. Thanks!

  126. Jenn says:

  127. Justine says:

    I’ve never been to a NASCAR race. Get well soon!

  128. Poppy says:

    I can’t stop thinking about the holidays!! 😍

  129. Charlotte says:

    Ever since I gave myself an accidental buzz cut, I can’t stop thinking about how fast or slowly my hair is growing! >_<

  130. Beth says:

    I’m sorry you have a cold again. They can be miserable. I remember with your last one you discovered that Nuxe Reve de Miel lip balm works wonders on a raw nose. Perhaps Tabs will bring some to you to use. That’s when you first put me on to Nuxe lip balm. I’ve used nothing else since &I have my mother using it also. Get well soon!

  131. Sarah Sq. says:

    I can’t stop thinking about Halloween!

  132. Elizabeth says:

    I can’t stop thinking about my Mom who passed away this last January. My birthday is tomorrow (Sept. 27th) and it will be a very difficult day. She would bake a homemade German Chocolate Cake every year and one year, she baked 3 because she didn’t like the way they turned out! LOL – I miss her every day. If I won the egift card for MAC, I would buy a pretty lipstick because she never was without her lipstick!

  133. colleen long says:

    I read your suggestions on what to comment, but I decided to go rogue. I just wanted to let anyone who reads this to know that you are loved, you are beautiful, and you only have one life to live so please make the best of it! –

  134. Janet Shepherd says:

    I recently got a free sample of Nars Luminous Moisture cream, and it was so lovely, smoothing & calming my dry skin. I’d love to indulge in a jar of this, but it costs about aud$96! Yikes! Why do shops tempt me with awesome stuff? Lol 😀

  135. Lisa C says:

    I hope you feel better soon, it stinks to be sick! My fav lipstick formula of ALL time is Dior Rouge Dior. Best formula ever! IMO 🙂

  136. Yelena says:

    Sometimes i regret being a music major with the violin. Foundation rubs off on the chin rest every freaking time i wear it.

  137. Emily says:

    My favorite lipstick formula is definitely the MAC amplified. it’s so creamy and lasts so long!!!

    MAC Cosmo Lipstick looks great on you Karen! I would love to try this shade myself. Sorry you have a cold. I hope you get lots of rest this weekend and feel better ASAP!

  140. Rachel R. says:

    Sorry to hear that you’re sick. Get well soon!

    I get my nails done about every two weeks. It’s been a bout a week and half. They’re dark blue with a dark blue and holographic glitter top coat.

    My favorite piece of gym equipment are my boxing gloves. Always a challenging and fun workout. Hope everyone is having a great weekend! Cheers! Cherie

  142. Sandy P says:

    Just did my nails this afternoon. Now that I am retired I don’t like to spend the money getting a shellac manicure

  143. Kim says:

    Sorry you are sick! Hope you feel better!
    The hardest thing about my job is not having enough time (isn’t that everyone’s problem?lol). I teach middle school science and only have 36 min a day w my students. I wish I had a little more time to tie up loose ends and make sure they understand everything and get a chance to help everyone that needs it.
    My hardest thing about my second (wife and mom of 3) is dealing with the chaos and noise. I hear noise all day long at work then come home and I’m so over stimulated I get anxious when there is more noise. I feel bad but if I hear one more hand playing drums on any surface… I freak! My husband had reconstructive shoulder surgery this week so I am sleep deprived and have zero help and am just overwhelmed. Got them all napping right now and I probably should be cleaning but I don’t wanna!!!! Stalking my latest makeup purchase (or dream or purchasing) sounds so much more fun to me!
    What about you? What’s the hardest thing about your job? I hope you feel better soon! Have a great weekend!

  144. BJW says:

    I have never been to a NASCAR race. I can’t say I’m planning on going to one any time soon.

  145. Mahreen says:

    I hope u feel better soon. I think the last time i got my nails done was before i had my 3 kids. Hubby bought me a gift card for mani and pedi end of may this year and I still havent been able ro make time to go. Hopefully I can go next weekend.

  146. Lori P says:

    I just got a manicure last Thursday and I’m wearing Ignite from the Sephora Formula X line.

    The hardest thing about my job is my manager won’t let me DO it because she sends me stuff to do that any body else can do it while my stuff is me exclusive (nobody else can do it) because it “saves her ass”. I’m just about ready to walk out the door and tell her to kiss my ass.

  147. Dominique Randall says:

    I’m 44 years young 😀 and have never worn lipstick. I do wear UD’s glosses.
    Congratulations on your pregnancy, I’m so excited for you and El Hubs oh and Tabs too.
    Hope you’re feeling better by now.
    Happy weekend.

  148. Andrea says:

    My fave lipstick formula is Shu Uemura. Although it’s not as consistently pigmented as a lipstick should be, it’s the most moisturizing lipstick ever!

  152. Michaela says:

    So sorry you’re not feeling well. Hope you get better soon!
    The last time I had a pedicure was yesterday. I just happened
    to be in the local strip mall, and popped in the nail salon, thinking it would be busy on a Friday afternoon because every girl wants to have pretty toenails for the weekend, right? But I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn’t that busy it all, and I was able to get service right away.

  153. Katrina says:

    I cannot remember the last time I did my nails – was it a week ago? So it’s on my agenda for tonight!

  154. mrsshukra says:

    I love Too Faced Melted lipstick. All the colors are glorious. It’s my all time favorite to date. Besame lipstick and cosmetics is a very close second. Deep rich color and beautiful look. Did my nails tonight – red of course.

  156. Maren says:

    My fave lipstick ever is one Maybelline used to make called Budgeproof. It really was! Also, the Sephora brand used to have all kinds of crazy colors of their own line of lipsticks.

  167. angie says:

    What’s your favorite lipstick formula of all time (among all brands)?
    I am loving Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick! They’re creamy, opaque, and stay on my lips even after meal. I have 4 (Liar, Streak, Rapture, and Naked).Most importantly they didn’t make my lips dry.
    So in love that it makes me want to buy their sheer version (maybe i’ll try sheer Beso)

  186. Andrew says:

    First of all, I hope you feel better soon! Your skin always looks amazing, but lately it’s been positively glowing; one of the benefits of pregnancy I guess :).

    Right now I’m juggling both work and school and neither are letting up at all. Embarrassing confession: yesterday I had my first calculus exam and I was so anxious and stressed out that afterward, as I was on my way to work, I had a sudden onset of gastric distress and, ummm, well . . . I messed myself. I’ve always had bad anxiety but going back to school has turned it into overdrive. Multiply that by the fact that I work at a funeral home and my stress level is always teetering on the edge between “I’m about to lose it” and “Sweet God I’m going to crawl into the fetal position and cry.”

    All the anxiety and stress aside, though, I couldn’t be happier. I love my family, I love my friends, and for the first time in almost a decade I can actually say that I’m putting myself first and focusing on what I want in life. At the end of the day it’s all worth it; even sharting myself in my brand new jeans.

  187. Tatiana says:

    I hope Tabs is taking very good care of you. Feel better soon. Sending get well vibes your way.

  188. Tiffany says:

    I finally used a salon gift certificate to have my nails done. The GC was four and a half years old! I chose a sassy, metallic shimmery fuchsia purple.

  189. Rita says:

    Looooove the Nars Audacious lipsticks! I like the original lipsticks too, but I love the Audacious formula for being both long-lasting (generally only need a touchup after lunch) but not dreadfully drying.

  190. Jen says:

    feel better soon!!!!!

    The last time I did my nails was two days ago, with my first ever Chanel polish. I am on holiday in France, so I can have my nails painted every day. While at work they have to be polish free.

  203. Vincent says:

    My favorite lipstick texture of all time is just a good old fashion matte lipstick, but I also love a good tinted lipbalm just for the convenience. I’m sorry you’re sick, and I really hope you do feel better very soon!

  208. Julie Murphy says:

    I can’t stop thinking about me losing my job.

  209. Birgit L. says:

    Now that you mention it … I haven’t done my nails in ages. This summer has been so hot and humid that it seemed too much of an effort, but now I should really break out my fall-color-collection. Maybe I’ll kick off the season with Essie’s “Vested Interest” one of my all time favorites!

  210. Byanka johnson says:

    I really love the UD revolution lipstick formula. Rapture to be extact!!

  211. Annie McCormack says:

    Feel better Karen! After seeing your post on MAC Cosmo I stopped into MAC yesterday to try and I can see myself going back very soon to buy! I’m not allowed to have my nails done in work but I’m going on a date in a couple of weeks and will get a manicure for that. In red, it has to be red!

  212. Lena says:

    Last time I did my nails was three days ago

    I hope you feel better soon! I had a pedicure last week for my birthday.

  220. Karin S says:

    I did my nails three days ago and I already need to redo them,I really need to buy a higher quality nail polish

  221. Love Mac lipsticks. The small of them is amazing! Is that weird that I like a lipstick so much because of the smell? I also recently tried the Tarte lipsticks and LOVE them! So moisturizing – but no delicious smell! Thanks for offering this giveaway!

  222. I hope you are feeling better!

  228. Shelley says:

    Feel better soon Karen! I may head to Mac today and check out Cosmo for myself. . .

  229. Hollie says:

    I’m a CT technoloGIST. I hate when we are called technicians. I went to school for 2 years, earned an associates in science, took 2 national boards, 1 for radiography and the other for CT and I hold a license in 2 states. The hardest part if my job is knowing when a pt. has something serious going on and they look directly into my eyes and ask if the scan came out ok. We are not allowed to reveal any information concerning their scans to them. I usually tell them that they take nice pics ( to try to lighten the moment) and we don’t read the scan, that’s why the Drs.make the big $$ ,but the radiologist will read them and put a report into the computer for the ordering Dr. to look at. On a lighter note, I did my nails about 2 weeks ago and put the Essie gel top coat over the polish. My nails are just now starting to look a little sloppy!! That stuff really works good. I am constantly washing them whether it’s using Purell or soap and water. I’m totally impressed. I just hope it’s not too hard to take off.

  230. Sarah Duehr says:

    I painted my nails the day before yesterday — gold! And I got these cool temporary tattoos for $1 a sheet, and put on a gold spiral to match!

  231. Rosemary says:

    Fav lipstick: any of the Chanel formulas, but especially the Rouge Coco Shine.

    I did my nails on Thursday night and just touched up one nail that had tip wear. It’s Tom Ford’s Bordeaux Lust, first fall-ish nail polish of the year.

    It’s the Blood Moon/Super Moon today. Can you see it? It’s raining here so we can’t.

    Hope you get well quickly, Karen.

  232. monica says:

    I spend a lot of time on the treadmill at the gym, way more than any other piece of equipment in that torture chamber. I wouldn’t say it’s a favorite, but I can stay on it much longer than the bike (super boring!) or the elliptical (painful!). I can just play my tunes, zone out, and push myself to hit a number on the screen like 45minutes or 6kilometers. I like that there are a lot of things being measured like heartrate, speed, etc.

  233. Emily says:

    Feel better!
    I’m going to do my nails today.

  234. Audrey says:

    Hi Karen, hope you fweel bwedder swoon😉 my fav lip formula would be specifically the fresh sugar lip balms- I love so many of the color choices and wear them practically every day!

  241. Jennifer says:

    MAC has to be my favorite lipstick of all time. Every time I try a more expensive brand the lipstick always breaks. That never happens with my MAC ones.

  242. Cassidy says:

    Nars Audacious!

  243. Alexandra says:

    What’s your favorite lipstick formula of all time (among all brands)?
    Dior Serum de Rouge (I have the shade Rosewood). It’s super creamy and pigmented and it lasts all day. I think it’s not available anymore, which is a shame because this lipstick is pure magic.

  244. Rayshawn says:

    The hardest part of my job is having to get up very early on mornings.

    I got a mani on Friday and I’m wearing it’s my year by opi which is a pretty purple with gold glitter that feels like a glass of wine on my nails. Makes me all warm and fuzzy Inside 😛

  254. Timi says:

    My fave lipstick formula of all time is matte, especially retro matte.

  255. Maddie says:

    I’m obsessed with Angel by MAC. I bought it for prom this past year, and have used it at least once a week since. It’s the perfect everyday color for me!

  256. Lynda says:

    i can’t get manis per work policy

  257. Elisabetta says:

    I love doing my nails at least once a week. I love bright reds and pinks, my favourite brand at the moment is Estee Lauder. I put pure red 4 days ago too bad I forgot to put my top coat on…At the moment I’m totally loving red matte lipsticks with an hint of orange…I’m not feeling well right now, I’m afraid I’m getting sick! :(. Get well soon dear Karen and drink hot milk with honey. Kisses!

  260. Izzy says:

    I’m currently starting the process of getting more fit before moving overseas to start a new job position, and I’ve been really loving the elliptical! It is easy on the knees, but allows me to challenge myself with different inclines and resistance, so I still get a good workout in. Thank you so much for this giveaway, and I hope you get better soon!

  261. Donna Young says:

    Pander lipstick by Mac is my absolutely favorite lipstck of all times. The hue of this lipstick is just perfect. Unfortunately it was a limited edition. I have searched counters everywhere to see if they have any left. I finally contacted Customer Service and was connected to lost but not forgotten. They found 3 and I ordered all of them. I am now in lipstick Mac heaven again!

  262. Deb says:

    The last time I did my nails was… well… two weeks ago? I really should do it more often… 🙂

  263. Sherry says:

    My favorite formula lipstick has to be MAC Cremesheen. I just can’t get enough!! Hope your cold goes away really soon…take care!!

  264. michelle says:

  267. Yvette Smith says:

    the hardest part of my job is making sure the elderly patients are comfortable and feel safe in my car!

  268. Regina M says:

    hmmm, I think my favorite lipstick formula is a matte finish, a lot of companies do this really well and some don’t. I love MAC lipsticks and I love some of their mattes but others are just a pain, like Ruby Woo, great color but a pain maybe its just the retro matte finish. Anyway I hope you feel better!!

  269. Chelsea Amanda says:

    I hope you feel better. I just got over allergies last week. I have been to a nascar race before, not my cup of tea.

  270. Anna says:

    I did my nails on Monday. I’m in love with Smith & Cult’s polish, my current fav is Doe my Dear. It’s like the perfect nude/grey for fair skinned ladies!

  271. Donna says:

    My daughter, who is an automotive engineer, once went to the Nascar Technical Institute in N. Carolina. She now works for Chysler and she wears makeup but is not into it as I am. Get well soon!

  272. Liz Beltran says:

    I love the Kate matte lipsticks from Revlon. I also love the Revlon butter ones. I don’t even know if that’s what they’re called lol but u get what I’m saying.

  273. Monika says:

    I really cannot stop thinking about a new mac blush brush that I so badly want…..nice and round and fluffy:)

  274. Brianna C says:

    Hope you feel better soon! 😊

  275. Shumaila says:

    I do my nails every Friday.

    I just painted my nails with Essie Bell Bottom Blues, a lovely metallic teal.

  278. Kecia S. says:

    Hi, Karen:

    I’m sorry you’re sick & I hope you feel better soon.

    I love the finish of the Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipsticks & I can’t stop thinking about the Italian vacation I’m planning for next year!

  279. alice says:

    last time I did my nails was a few weeks ago. I had on essie’s denim jeans. It was so pretty. I wish I had it on now. But I was starting to break my nails–which very rarely happens to me–so I’m taking a nail polish break. =(

    I’m super into crafting – specifically card making – and I’ve realized there are no really cool makeup related stamp sets. I LOVE makeup and I LOVE crafting and I would love to make a card for someone that is makeup related. It would be so cool to color a lipstick bullet or a cute compact. That said I totally saw your post about the MAC lispstick Cosmo and picked it up today at Nordstrom. I’m a shade darker than you but the color looked amazing on you so I hope it looks good on me too! I’ll know tomorrow when I wear it to work!!

  314. Ivy Zheng says:

    Can’t stop thinking about my crush lol. I’m about to graduate college and have never dated. Not in a rush to date but I don’t think I’ve had this big of a liking for anyone in my life before. I can’t tell if he sees me as a really close friend or more than that. Slightly geared towards the feelings he likes me too but we’re both shy at times. :/ *sigh what to do…
    My favorite lipsticks are from Tarte. Their amazonian lipsticks are amazing! Just right with the amount of moisturization and great for the price–better than any drugstore and out of all the high ends! I like thes eover my YSL lipstick. Did not like NRs audacious at all. About to try Bobbi Brown moisturizing lip sticks soon!

    I haven’t done my nails in months although there’s enough nail polish in my collection to fill three shoe boxes (and lots of appropriate fall shades in there, too).
    In the spring I discovered Bite Beauty’s lipsticks and fell in L-O-V-E! I just wish they weren’t so expensive.

  318. BooBooNinja says:

    I want to share with You a thing since i was a little girl. My Uncle had a paintstore, where they also sold makeup. When we visited them he always followed me there, then he let me choose a lipstick. And he helped me with the color. What an Uncle huh?! Also, I got with me lipstick, eyeshadow and nailpolish that become damaged during shipment to the store. It was heaven for a little girl like me! My mom always blamed my Uncle, because I always where so crazy about makeup. And i agree with her – and I thank him! 🙂

  333. Hardest thing so far about being stay at home mom with a toddler is maintaining consistency and patience through crazy tantrums and that you never get a day off. The longest I’ve been away from Colin is 3 hours and that was mostly while he was asleep. Though I suppose that’ll change when the new baby is born since he’s going to have to stay home with someone else while I’m in the hospital, ha!

    Hey Karen, I hope your feeling well 🙂
    I’m not sure if I have found my favorite lipstick formula yet, but I am obsessed with the Fresh Sugar lip treatments, which technically aren’t lipsticks but lip balms, but I started collecting them like crazy. I def. consider myself a lip balm addict^^

    I also like the Clarins Rouge Eclat lipsticks, because they are pretty hydrating. And let’s not forget about MAC. You can’t go wrong with MAC lipsticks. I still got Mehr on my wishlist. And I’ve been dying to check out Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte Revolution lipsticks.


  339. Rachel says:

  343. Trude says:

    I can’t stop thinking about our upcoming move to Reno in November. That’s right girl – we’ll be closer to you! 🙂 We finally had to accept that it’s just too damn expensive to have a family and a home in Orange County, so we’re taking a big leap and moving out of state. We’ll be close to his dad and stepmom, which is great, but it’ll be tough leaving my family. At least it’s a short flight!

    I just bought MAC’s lipstick in Rare Breed and then came home and found out I had two drugstore dupes for it (and about three others that were also very similar). That was discouraging. I would love to go back and get a color that I NEVER pick out/wear just to try something different and be assured it’s my only one! And my nail polish today is a really pretty fall color by Zoya–a pink and gold coppery duo chrome.

  355. I got gel nails done few weeks back and I love it! Absolutely maintenance free!

    I’ve been worried because I’m looking for a new job and for some reason the interviews are scaring me. Get well soon K-Dawg!

  364. Megan says:

    Oddly enough I’ve been to a lot of Nascar races…Atlanta was first and I’ve been there probably 4 or 5 times, Richmond at least 3 times, Martinsville, Dover a couple times, and Talladega. I’m not a huge fan, but the boyfriend grew up in the Atlanta suburbs and went to his first race as a boy scout and he fell in love – so typically he’s one of the 30 or fewer black fans at the race when we go. Nascar races are an experience though – lots of really drunk people in my experience.

    Today I did my nails ! I love to design them, inventing new designs and also when I have time, I make my cousins ​​nails !

    My favorite lipstick formula from the drugstore is rimmel london kate lipstick collection. My favorite high-end lipstick formula is Mac.

  375. Jennifer M-K says:

    What’s your favorite lipstick formula of all time (among all brands)? Ohh…tough but right now I’d say matte because of its staying power…but I do have this one MAC creamsheen that I love that has ridiculous staying power too without being super drying…so I guess it depends on my mood.
