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

Published in: Giveaways, Just For Fun


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

Win a $50 Sephora eCard

Rise and shine, morning glory! Happy caturday. 🙂 I hope you don’t mind, but I’m keeping this short. I desperately need to get some food and tea in my system, STAT.


That movie we rented last night, Top Five? Good movie. I thought Rosario Dawson and Chris Rock were great. The pacing reminds me a little of Hitch, like that kind of dating movie in a big city, but it has more layers. There’s more going on with the characters. More backstory, and more of character journey, so it’s not quite as slap-sticky. It’s still funny, though. But serious too. Tabs also liked it.

I hope you have something fun lined up this weekend. I have no idea what I’m doing today. Honestly, I haven’t gotten that far. I’m still all about that food and tea.

Good luck in the giveaway, and I’ll talk to you soon…after I’m fully caffeinated.

    I’m debating a half shave. Been growing out a pixie, am almost at a bob but feel it looks a little frumpy / mommy-ish. Anyhoo, can’t decide.

  8. Remi says:

    Best thing about where I live is the weather. It’s snowing in spring right now, and while I don’t like cold or snow, just having such unpredictable weather makes it kind of fun.

    Random, but I have recently re-fallen in love with Buxom’s fantastic lipstick formula, specifically the shade Rogue! After I post this, I’ll search your site to see if you’ve reviewed Buxom lipsticks in the past.

    I’ve been reading your blog since high school (so like…. 2008?) and I just wanted to let you know that you got me into makeup and inspired me to play with shades and colors. I won one of your contests in the past (It was the L’oreal tropical colors one — you sent me a bunch of shade palettes from l’oreal). I still have them all hahahaha. You quote me once ( and I basically died inside. It was the coolest thing ever looool. I’m into kona coffee now because you posted it on your blog a LONG time ago after you took that vacation to Hawaii… Anyways, you’re an inspiration and it’s super cool to see how far you’ve come!

I stopped drinking soda and eating fatty foods, making better choices actually on what I eat. Also I am walking 2 miles every morning and doing 30 mins of cardio every afternoon. I’m adopting this way of life to stay thin and healthy!! Now the side effects of this weight loss is wonderful!! The #1 being all the awesome self confidence..I am so proud of myself for accomplishing such a monumental goal. I can’t wait to go to the family reunion in a month, and look fabulous in a new update outfit, hair and make up which is where I’ll definitely wear this makeup!! This reveal of my new thin and confident self will blow my family away for sure I’m so excited!!

  83. Melissa Vaught says:

    I think Rosario looks amazing with the half-shave but I’d never be brave enough to pull it off.

  115. Michelle L says:

    IT was the birthday of one of the groceries this weekend.

    THere was alot of food tasting I didn’t stay for the cake…

  116. Olivia says:

    The last makeup item I purchased online was the Nars All Day Weightless Luminous foundation (such a long name). It came in the mail yesterday and so far I am not a fan 🙁 With the brush I used yesterday it clang to some dry spots on my cheek. Today I used the Tarte airbrush foundation brush and boy that foundation just looked terrible! I ended up taking off all of my makeup because I was so unhappy with how it looked. Tomorrow, or maybe even later today I’ll try it out with the beauty blender. I was really hoping I was going to love this foundation, or at least like it because Siberia is such a perfect match for me! Most brands don’t even carry a shade for me.

  117. Stephanie says:

    Last makeup I bought online was the Nordstrom LE MAC 15 eyeshadow neutral palette, MAC Prep & Prime Moisture Serum and MAC Prep & Prime highlighter pen.

  118. Dia says:

  123. Michaela says:

    Best thing about Buffalo? The wings!

  129. Amanda says:

    I watched Rich Hill, a documentary made 45 minutes from my home town, and it made me sad. It showed the decay of small towns and the people who live in poverty within them.

  130. I have a fade (hair shaved all around except on top), so I would totally rock Rosario Dawson’s half shaved do if I could grow my hair.

  131. mariem says:

    My most recent purchase was the WnW Contour. Love the color, texture, staying power and price. Perfect.
    Better than some of the higher priced versions imho.

  138. Emma says:

    This weekend (Fri-Sun) is my absolute FAVORITE local event. Every year there’s a clothing exchange fundraiser in a small art center in town. I always end up going all three days and get so many amazing clothes for next to nothing! Plus I get to clean out my closet in preparation. It is, without a doubt, my happy place ^_^

    Happy Caturday!

    Now I want to watch Top Five, never heard of it before, but love love love Hitch. I do not think I could rock the half shave hair cut ‘tho!

    My big thing I have been looking forward to all week is dim sum tomorrow morning – whoo hoo turnip cakes, shrimp all day long ya ya ya. You can maybe guess what one (of my many) vices is?

    Something I love about my city, although winter is too long, we live in beautiful river city with a gorgeous valley with many trails and parks. It is a hidden jewel.

    The last makeup item I purchased online was a bottle of MUFE aquaseal. My left eye especially waters in the outside corner a lot from allergies and always runs my makeup. This really keeps it in place and makes great eyeliner and holds glitter well too. Love it.

  149. Michaela says:

    Love your blog, and Tabs always makes me smile, thank you 🙂

  150. Sherry says:

    Just purchased the almost lipstick honey line from the Clinique website. I’ve got black honey and they have a tender honey, spicy honey, and chic honey. I love lip balm and I love these colors and the way it makes my lips feel. I’ve loved black honey since high school – my go to quick fix 🙂

  151. Rina says:

  158. Jocelyn says:

    This weekend I’m spending most of my time sorting, packing, and getting things ready to donate. My landlady is selling the house and I’m trying to relocate. I’m going to be couchsurfing for a bit until I have a new job.

    Oh i have plenty of vices, like junk food… especially chips, picking at my skin (i’m doing that right now)

  167. Maureen says:

    The last makeup I bought online was the Naked 3 palette. I really have never been able to make eyeshadow work for me, this latest purchase included.

  168. Yirat says:

    I just bought Technopagan lip tar this morning!

  175. Sopranogurl says:

    I just got a bottle of magnetic nail polish. I’ve been wanting one for years. Even though it’s not super trendy anymore, I love it and bought more right after using it. I think it would be really cool to use it as a background to other nail art designs.

  176. Kelly Chambers says:

    This weekend(currently actually) I’m participating in EarthHour! Where from 8:30-9:30 you turn off all lights in your home!

  188. Jenn says:

    Rosario looks amazing but i couldn’t pull it off.

  189. Amy says:

    My week was boring.

  190. Gina Bullard says:

    The highlight to my weekend was two fold; my visit from my friend Billie, and my walk in the park. Freakiness was when my tabby Gracie got out and scared me half to death! She ran from me, and I couldn’t get her for about 20 minutes. She came right back though. Whew! Love that girl to pieces…. wish I could add a pic – you’d love her…. <3

  191. JujuBee says:

    Just Bought the CoverFX drops. Seriously AMAZING stuff!!!! Customizable coverage and I also use it to adjust other foundation shades. Ladies, if you travel for work or play like I do, you’ll love the tiny dropper, that can pair with your sunscreen/primer/moisturizer….etc. I always carried at least 2 foundations, no more!

  192. Anne says:

    When Urban Decay eye shadow singles were half off at Ulta a few weeks ago, I bought several I’d had my eye on. My 13 year old daughter and I have a joint vice – eating Ben & Jerry’s straight out of the container in the evening while we talk about her day. Good thing they don’t sell Ben & Jerry’s ice cream by the gallon!

  193. Chelsea E. says:

    My last online makeup purchase was when Too Faced had the Ultimate Chocolate Box kit that came with both the Chocolate Bar Palettes! I am so excited I bought it; I love them both!

  196. Sienna says:

    Vice= coffeecoffeecoffee, ha

  198. Tania says:

    Hey Karen! I’ve been loving your YouTube vids. Oh and I’m spending the weekend recovering from bronchitis. Yay! Super yay for medicine that zaps my energy. However, at least maybe my Netflix queue will go down. 🙂

  199. jessica says:

    I just bought a single $4 hand cream from sephora online, just to get a 500 point perk. The hand cream is my favorite formula (soap and glory hand food) and the perk included three lip minis and a FAB cleanser so I think it was worth it!

  200. Michelle says:

    I just bought the L’oreal Infalliable pro-matte foundation and love it! I think I may have bought a shade or so dark but I rocked it anyway – so many compliments on my skin today 🙂

  201. Linda says:

    I’m loving the MAC eyeshadow collections! I just bought the Nordstrom exclusive set– it’s perfect!

  202. Susan T. says:

    I was just at this amazing pet store where I saw a cat tree that blew my mind! It was over 8 feet tall and had 10 platforms leading up to the top perch. One of my cats is a total little monkey and would absolutely love it!

  205. Denise says:

    I’ll be staying inside this weekend to write a paper but I will wear my new Petite Red lipstick to cheer myself.

  206. Kiki says:

    Honestly Karen… I didn’t know how you did this every week, scrolling thousands of comments before finally choose a winner.

    If I were you, I’ll just let Tabs pick the winner for me LOL..

  207. Maddie says:

    The highlight of my week so far has been getting a gorgeous new Kate Spade handbag.

  210. Jeanine says:

    I love Sephora

  211. Jennifer says:

  212. Jennifer M-K says:

    Last piece of makeup you purchased online? I ordered MAC blue peep and royal wink after I saw your review…I haven’t gotten them yet but I think I’m gonna play around with them for an Easter look 🙂

  213. Allison says:

    Couldn’t believe that it snowed again this morning here in New York!

  214. Whitney says:

    I applaud any woman brave enough to shave their head, or half their head. I am not so brave. It takes what seems like 6 months to grow out a bad bang job. I feel like if I shaved half my head I would spend an eternity trying to grow it back out. Not only that, my hair is the weirdest texture, so I would have half my head straight and normal length, and the other half looking like I made out with an electrical socket stick all sorts of different directions!

  215. Aenea says:

    Seaworld and a picnic in front of the beach for this weekend 🙂

  216. Jen C says:

    My last online makeup purchase were some Ardell’s falsies (108 Denis)!

  217. shelly peterson says:

    I would never rock Rosario Dawson’s half-shave, unless some one paid me a million dollars and that is never going to happen. lol 🙂

  218. em says:

    I had shaved the right side of my head 3 years ago. Everyone loved it! It’s just a pain trying to grow it out and trim it every other week

  219. Diana says:

    The highlight of my week was when I headed to Sephora and I left feeling so loved! The women that work there have been so genuinely kind to me and I really appreciate that :’)

  220. lynn clayton says:

    i love that there are lots of greenspaces where i live

  221. dawn says:

    Charlotte Tilbury B*tch Perfect was my last makeup purchase. It’s perfect nude lip for me, so it was worth the hefty price tag.

  222. Leslie Kiley says:

    St. Louis has terrible weather, not much of a social life but it has some amazing places for food! The Del Mar loop has every kind of food and place to graze! I love the Korean BBQ!

  223. Emily says:

    I love Seattle for so many reasons… probably most of all that I am surrounded by a skyline, mountains, and water.

  224. Johnna Quick Owens says:

    I’m not much for purchasing makeup online, I love to try it out and play with it too much, but on Black Friday I did make an exception. I stalked the Sephora website until the sale started, then bought a Kat von D lipstick set, a couple of bottles of Philosophy’s Purity Made Simple cleanser, a Tarte Amazonian set, and a rollerball perfume set that was supposed to be a gift and then once I smelled them I managed to find a reason to keep them. 🙂

  225. Andrea Amy says:

    I have never purchased makeup online. I prefer to shop in person.

  226. Helen Kempster says:

    This weekend is all about family! Today my Mom, Sister and Niece and I attended a tea party/luncheon. Tonight, my Dad and I went to a Trivia night fundraiser for a local church. Tomorrow church then dinner at my Parents house with my Sister and her husband and my Niece and Nephews and my son. Crazy weekend!! I love it!!

  227. alice says:

    I think I got some super expensive base and top coat nail polish. When it arrived I wondered why I even got it in the first place so I returned it in store and got something else. I think if I saw it in the store I wouldn’t have even bought it.

  228. Kathleen says:

    So I recently splurged on Nars Orgasm but I don’t know that it’s the right color for me. It looks INSANELY gorgeous on my friend Taylor though! I think I might gift it to her (she doesnt really wear makeup but I’m telling you this shit was magical, she looked like a beauty queen) and go for Mac Cubic.

  229. MelodyJ says:

    This weekend I’m organizing my workouts so that I will be ready to go during the week.

  230. Lisa Levitt says:

    My sister and I are doing a spring cleaning trade. I spend yesterday at her house helping and she is coming over today to help me. It is so much better to have company.

  231. CL says:

    If I remember correctly, the last piece of makeup I ordered online was the Tarte Rainforest Palette.

  232. Yvonne Appleton says:

    There is a Sephora store close to me, but I’ve never actually gone to a Sephora store in person. I order from online often though!

  233. Neha Kaul says:

    My favorite thing about the city I live in is its proximity to Rancho San Antonio Open Space Reserve. It is a sight to behold especially at this time of the year with its lushness and creatures of all shapes and sizes prancing about; turkeys, deers, squirrels, hares amongst others.
    The Reserve also boasts of a multitude of trails of varying degrees of difficulty; it’s my go-to for a stress-busting, head-clearing hike!

  234. Niki says:

    I’m not going to win but whatever. The highlight of my week was March Madness. It’s my jam.

  235. joanne says:

  236. Cathy says:

    I will be cleaning my room this weekend and work on homework ><

  237. Mardi says:

    I’m in Melbourne from today until Wednesday. Husband is at the cricket World Cup so I did some shopping today – all cosmetics yay. I’m about to go and have dinner by myself – not something I think I’ve ever done in 47 years!

  238. brittany burleson says:

    Working nights all weekend, gotta make more money to buy more makeup 🙂

  239. melanie hill says:

    The highlight of my weekend was staying at home doing nothing like watching tv and clearing out old emails. Oh i forgot, the plants bloomong in my yard are my azaleas!!

  240. Lisa says:

    It’s 3:50 am and I’m having chills. I’ve been in the bed most of the day which is so frustrating. On the plus side my son made me some tea and my kitty hasn’t left my side all day 🙂

  241. BB says:

    This weekend’s highlight was hanging out with my good friends.

  242. Maren says:

    Vices? Uh… overshopping? Is that so bad?

  244. BlackAsphodel says:

    I’ve been rapidly expanding my shoe collection.

  245. Deanna says:

    Would not do the half-shave. It looks terrible.

  247. Isabella says:

    The last piece of makeup I bought online was a bronzer from Bobbi Brown in the shade Medium 2. It has red undertones and will be perfect for spring and summer!

    This rainy weekend there has been lots of cooking for the next week, and hopefully some crafting today 🙂

  255. Denay says:

    The highlight of my week was spending time with my cousin who usually is a little uptight and worries about everything (but a wonderful person) well she had several glasses of wine (really a bottle) at a family event and she was so funny and I laughed all night with her.

  256. Laura says:

    Now that I am older my worst vice is COFFEE COFFEE. Now in my younger days… 😉

    The highlight of my week was movie night with my husband. We decided to make it a weekly thing last week. Last night we watched Star Wars Episode V and it was great.

    My Mom came to town to visit this weekend.

  304. Rachel says:

    I live near Boston, and I love the big city feel combined with the history of the city.

  305. Justine says:

    I decided that I want to try a pre-shampoo treatment. Now I just need to choose one.

  306. Cassie says:

    Hi Karen! Thanks so much for this giveaway opportunity… $50 at Sephora would be such a treat for this beauty junkie/broke grad student 🙂 All I’ve been doing this weekend is working at my part-time job; gotta pay the monthly bills!!

  307. Al says:

    Thanks for the giveaway, Karen!

  308. Liz says:

    This weekend was super low key since hubby and I were both feeling under the weather. Boo!

  309. Denisa says:

    So the highlight of the week for me is the fact that I started exercising regularly at the gym again! Such a boost of “happy hormones” 😀

  310. sakura says:

    The last piece of makeup that I purchased online was Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara. It’s my favorite! I used to like Dior’s Blackout the best.

  311. T says:

    One of my vices (I have many) is Diet Coke! I love it!

  312. nlm8 says:

    Can’t remember the last time I bought makeup online. I like to swatch! 🙂

  313. Emily L. says:

    I just bought and received Inglot 344 and 420, two of the eyeshadows recommended in your Unsung Makeup Heroes: Inglot Freedom System post by guest author Monika Wykurz. Loving them so far!

  314. Kelsey says:

    The last makeup items I bought online were from the Mac Philip Treacy collection. I got one of the powders, Royal Wink, and Cardinal. Your video for the collection was adorable!

  315. Wayne says:

    Classy Tabs!!!

  316. Jennifer says:

    Last makeup I purchased online was the Clinique Super Primer. After hearing tons of great reviews I decided to purchase. It really is a great primer and goes great with my Nars Sheer Glow.

  317. Rae says:

    My highlight and weekend are one and the same, I’m celebrating news that I am officially cancer free.

  318. Angela says:

    My last online purchase was 14 morphe brushes eye shadows and a domed zpalette for my depotted milani Bella eyes eyeshadows. My next online purchase will be five more bella eyes eye shadows to complete my palette. Haha

  319. Kate K says:

    I caught a cold for the weekend so I’ve been lazing on the couch watching movies.

  320. Debbi says:

    This weekend is full of new experiences. I just started running last month, and ran 3 miles without stopping. And, after being a single mom for several years, I have a new boyfriend and will be spending time getting to know his kids. All in all a great weekend – not to mention the quality time with my own children 🙂

  321. latanya says:

    the highlight of my week was visiting my family this weekend

  322. Sanam says:

    One of my favorite things about my town is that the downtown area is so cute!

  323. Toyin A says:

    My highlight of the was getting a job. I’m not going to be broke anymore 🙂

  324. Karen R. says:

    The last piece of makeup I bought online was a Sephora Nano Eyeliner in Pearl Beige. Its a great color to highlight your eyes with.

  325. Lorraine says:

    last piece of makeup purchased online: Jin Soon polishes in Nostalgia and Coquette

  326. Audrey M. says:

    I absolutely love Penzey’s spices!

  327. Kirsten says:

    I bought the Forget the Fruitcake lippie set from Colourpop. It went out of stock last week and I panicked. *^_^* But it hasn’t arrived yet.

  328. Felis says:

    I would SO rock a half shave. Or even a whole shave!

  329. Bella says:

    I have dry/acne prone skin so finding a foundation that won’t effect one or the other negatively has been a challenge but I recently purchased the Mac Face and Body for the first time and it has been heaven sent. It doesn’t break me out or dry my skin out or stick to any dry spots it just a nice glow w/ buildable coverage. i love it.

  330. Des says:

    I love her half-shave!

  331. laurie murley says:

    my favorite part of living in the country is the peace and quiet, no noisy cars and horns blowing all the time

  332. Angel says:

    I’m looking for another job! Wish me luck!

    The last piece of makeup I purchased online is revlon just bitten lip stain!

    and events.
    April 22 to the 24, if you hand in small recyclable electronics. Pizza Pizza will give 2 free slices per electronic. Find out how many slices maximum.
    Also google kids and adults birthday freebies
    The cats pyjamas, are so last year. It’s black tie now baby

  335. Layla says:

    The highlight of my week was my last day of Winter term (yesterday!). I now have 9 days of freedom before I’m about that textbook life again. I’m going to veg like I’ve never vegged before and give my body and mind a much needed break–and some rest 🙂

  336. Adrianne B says:

    My favorite thing about my city is our citizenry! We have smart, eco-conscious, forward-thinking folks who are making it a great place to live, work, and play!

  337. I did lots of errands and some fun shopping during baby nap times this weekend while the husband stayed home – but I do miss the relaxing and doing nothing while he sleeps. I was good and got three foundation samples this weekend instead of just buying something! The NARS Luminous and Sheer Glow in Siberia as well as MAC Face and Body in C1. I know the F&B is too dark, but I was to really test the formula on my skin before investing in C1 and the giant bottle of white to mix it. I’m thinking the Siberia options are going to be pretty similar to what’s currently working best for me, L’Oreal True Match in W1. But that one breaks down and wears off after 4-5 hours. It’s not the end of the world, but it would sure be nice to have something is less looking dry on the cheeks and lasts on the rest of my face past noon! 😀

    Watched Top Five and my short attention span couldn’t handle it hahaha

    Went to Sandbox at Pampanga last Friday to do ride ATVs and try archery with the family, my body’s still sore haha and I’ve got an unfortunate sunburn.

  341. Lauren says:

    I would totally consider the half shaved look. Everyone who does it seems to just look super attractive, notably my No. 1 Girl Crush, Natalie Dormer.

  342. Misty Hall says:

    The last cosmetic item I purchased online would have to be the IT Cosmetics Highlighter Powder Compact. I love, Love, Love it! I am hoping I win this gift card because I need a heavy duty primer that can withstand Arizona heat.

  343. anissa says:

    my #1 vice is diet dr. pepper. also, chocolate. and, nail polish.
    my favorite thing about where i live (because most of the time it drives me crazy living here) is how bright the stars look in the night sky, because there isn’t much “ambient” light in such a small town.

  344. Swati says:

    My last makeup purchase was a clear lip liner.

  345. Sylvia H. says:

    Last piece of makeup you purchased online?

  346. Ruth says:

    I’ve been sick all stinkin’ week but the highlight is one of my online classes is finished!

  347. Chelsey says:

    The last beauty related product I bought online was a liquid eyeliner with a matte finish from the one and only, The Balm. It retailed for almost $18 and it was sooo worth it

  348. Jen says:

    My last online makeup order arrived on Friday and it was two things from Bare Minerals. They were “The Magic Act” palette and the new “bareSkin Perfecting Veil”.

  349. Veronica Rodriguez says:

    Hope I win!! 🙂

  350. Valerie says:

    Highlight of the weekend was going grocery shopping. Womp womp….except that the husband came with! This is a once a year event to get him to join me. Four hands instead of two! Winning.

  351. Jen says:

    I love your blog and pass it on to all my makeup lover friends all the time! The last online makeup purchase I made was this weekend from Ulta for the new Urban Decay Mascara Resurrection. I’m super excited to give it a try as I have heard great things!

  352. Ana says:

    Last makeup items I purchased online were in my Ulta mini haul. I got Nyx’s hot singles eyeshadow in LOL, stay matte but not flat powder foundation in nude, hd blush in taupe and high voltage lipstick in stone. I also got the Mally liquid face defender blush in mimosa. I’m loving them all so far but the Mally blush has really stolen the spotlight! So happy that I bit the bullet and got it! (It was on sale for $18, but that’s still a bit expensive for me.)

  353. Jac says:

    Picked up some Maybelline Color Show at my local dollar store last week… nice colors, but disappointed by the formula for the original price.

  354. Lori Ryan says:

    Just purchased the Maybelline matte and poreless, so far I really like it.

  355. Sara Muniz says:

    The highlight of my week was hanging out with my husband on Friday night and getting a little tipsy !!!

  356. Tara says:

    This weekend we went out on a double date with my parents for my step-dad’s 60th birthday and then spent the entire day with our kids on Sunday… including a trip to the Easter Bunny! Now, if it would only warm up…………

  357. lou says:

    I just got the flu… I’m keeping myself motivated to get better as soon as possible.

  358. Fran says:

    Highlight of the week: my son and I put together an IKEA love seat/chaise combination (that we love — it’s a dark blue/grey rather than the lovely green leather you pictured earlier — a bit more masculine), and it was a pleasant experience! I pointed out to him that two people who can put a large, complicated IKEA piece together without arguing get along very well 🙂 Of course we spent years putting complicated LEGO sets together when he was younger…

  359. Courtney says:

    I believe that the last thing I bought online was when I made a huge E.L.F order. I might breakdown and buy the Kat Von D Monarch palette…that thing is just a dream! Thank you for the giveaway!

  360. Julie says:

    The last thing I bought online was using my Birchbox points! I bought Rollerlash and LOVE IT!

  361. Mandy Sark says:

    I spent the weekend with my girls and it was a blast! Too bad I’m now exhausted.

  362. Angela P. says:

    Tabs looks bad ass in that picture! It looks like a movie poster for a film I would love to watch! I just bought Benefit’s Rollerlash and Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle using the Birchbox points I have been hoarding. Love them both.. even more because in the end it only cost me like $6.00. Score!

  363. Adriana S says:

    Highlight of my week: Spending the weekend with my husband and my two beautiful girls!

  364. Sarah says:

    hello…love your blog, just found it yesterday, through searching for Nars lipgloss swatches. Since reading your post on it, I now have the life goal of owning EVERY SINGLE NARS LIPGLOSS! lol. Even though the amount of lipglosses I own could probably afford me a small car. I am actually wondering if you know where I can buy the Nars Corsica (holiday edition) lipgloss… ?? It is such a beautiful color that I bought this past Christmas season (similar to Nars’ Dolce Vita color, yet a bit more warmer) yet I cracked the case and am now realizing I can’t find it anywhere. 🙁 Ohhhh makeup problems, the best kind…
    Thanks for your awesome blog!

  365. Bridget Heiple Reich says:

    I live in St. Louis and I love that we have the Anheuser Busch brewery, Grant’s Farm and one of the best, free Zoos! 🙂

  366. Janea M says:

    On Saturday I went to lunch to celebrate my friend’s birthday. We went to a Greek restaurant called Opa! We had a hilarious time

  367. Trude says:

    Hope you had a good weekend! We took a friend out for his birthday on Saturday and it was super fun. Otherwise just spent lots of quality time with Mr. Handsome. 🙂

  369. Brittany says:

    How about that Walking Dead finale last night?! AHHHHHHHH

  370. Sofia Radjevic says:

    My most recent makeup purchase was Benefit’s “high brow” <3 and the highlight of my week was going crazy from looking at all the makeup from Sephora that I would get if I won this amazing giveaway, and this weekend I am going on a date with my boyfriend and my favorite thing about my town, Toronto, is that it is so multicultural!!

  371. Mina M says:

    I would DEFINITELY rock Rosario Dawson’s half-shave! 😛

  372. Majick says:

    I spent the weekend recuperating from a dive I took in the parking lot last week. JEEPERS, I wear the same snow boots all winter and don’t go down – then…dry conditions and SMACKO!
    Down on both knees hard (both skinned and bloody), twisted ankle (still a bit swollen but I’m back to work), and an abraded wrist and palm of other hand. I also cracked the emerald in my expensive bracelet and ruined my brand new sorel boots. I really hope the shoe guy can fix the boots, I just splurged on them for my birthday this past February.
    hope I win the card – maybe it will help my bruised ego. LOL

  373. Gloria says:

    lol, Tabs is so cute wight hat sephora gift card!!!

    This weekend I had a huge crawfish boil with my lab mates. we got fresh crawfish and did Louisiana style cooking. Yummy!!!

    Karen, do you like crawfish??

  374. Molly says:

    I just bought the Wal-Mart beauty box online and received it in the mail today. It was meh.

    I would love to rock a half-shaved head, but I think that my head is too weird of a shape for that!

  375. Jessica davis says:

    Thank you so much for your giveaways!❤️ My son, boyfriend and my sis are gonna drive to philly and try a Philly cheesesteak for the first time!! Soooo excited. Maybe even stop in Delaware to do shopping if I get lucky!!!

  376. KellyPC says:

    I’m not a fan of the half-shave, but I love weird. I’d 38 & my hair is blue & turquoise! When I was young I used to shave the back of my head from my neck up to the top of my ears. It was cool in the summer for me cause I’ve always had long hair.

  377. AmyD says:

    Can’t wait to try the new Dior foundation!
