Win a $50 Sephora e-gift card!

Every day is a new adventure around here. Just when I think I’ve figured something out, like a good routine to get Connor Claire fed and soothed to sleep for a couple of hours at a time, nope! — something new happens.

She was so fussy last night. Not even Uncle Tabby’s amazing nanny services could soothe her. She was incorrigible… Now watch her sleep all day long today, LOL!


Rise and shine, morning glory! Happy Caturday!

That reminds me… I bet you probably realize by now that yesterday was April Fool’s Day. Sadly, this means that the grand opening of the new Novato Cat Cafe & Cosmetics has been delayed. πŸ™‚

In other news, I got out of the cave/house for two whole hours yesterday, and it was glorious! My parents visited and offered to watch Connor, so El Hub and I sneaked away to the mall. We got coffee, See’s candy and window shopped like real grownup people! It was the most exciting thing I’ve done in a month.

    I am glad you two got to get out of the house yesterday. I bet your mom is in love with her little granddaughter πŸ™‚ Have a wonderful weekend! I was supposed to finish moving but it’s supposed to rain so I think the plans will have to get moved by a week.

  2. I mix different colors of concealer ’cause my skin tone is so weird!

  3. Ashley says:

    Lately I’m getting the macx9 palettes in every color!

  4. Amy says:

    Even though I like doing really fancy makeup, some days I just use a color tattoo or pencil for a one and done eye look.

  5. Becky says:

    Lipsticks. So many lipsticks. In EVERY colour-grey, pink, blue, green…! I love a bold lip!! So glad you got some time out Karen, you’ll have needed it!!

  6. Hilary says:

    Amazonian clay: No for me. I have dry skin and it just makes it drier!

  7. Andrea Vecchione says:

    I have so many green nail polishes, it ridiculous.

  8. Sana says:

    A piece of popular beauty advice you don’t agree with? There are rules .
    Have you ever thumb wrestled anyone? Everyone
    Favorite boy band? None I’m a solo girl
    Amazonian clay: yes or no?yes why not

  9. Barb says:

    Yay! So glad you got out of the house for a few hours! I have a crap ton of nail polish. I actually plan on going through it this weekend and reorganize it and get rid of polishes I haven’t used. I have probably about 200 bottles, give or take.

    My all time favorite boy band is Duran Duran! Listening to them right now while I’m cleaning the house and I’m going to see them in July!! I’m so excited and CANNOT WAIT!!

  10. Susan T. says:

    If I like something I always try to buy it in every colour otherwise I’m kicking myself later! I have multiples of many of my clothes. The latest item I bought every colour of was moto sweatpants from The Gap. I bought every colour I could find except for black because I have a ginger cat and can no longer have anything black or navy. Lol!

  11. Lorraine says:

    Fave boy band(showing my age here!): Duran Duran!!
    Product I have in a bunch of colors: Nail polish- my stash is overflowing, never too many colors and they never go bad. my weakness is for polish

  12. artemis says:

    A product I have in a bunch of colors is Essence Longlasting Lipstick πŸ˜€ I have it in Barely there, Come Naturally, On the Catwalk and Coral Calling πŸ˜€

    Congrats, by the way <3 Me and my neighbour think Connor is so cute!

  13. Fran says:

    Karen, I’m so happy that you and El Hub got out of the house yesterday πŸ™‚

    Now what you need to do is get Connor Claire out of the house, too! That was the only thing that helped when my son went through that fussy, crying phase. I bundled him up in the sling and we went to the neighborhood Little League games. Fresh and and fresh faces to fuss over how cute he was worked wonders. I hope you find something that works for your little one as well πŸ™‚

    I have Make Up For Ever Artist Shadows in dozens of colors — some of the shades make great blushes or contour powders as well as eyeshadows! And several shades of MUFE’s Rouge Artist Natural lipstick — and several shades of Urban Decay Revolution lipstick, Tom Ford Lips & Boys, and Colour Pop Ultra Satin lip colors, too. When I find a formula I love, it seems like I want it in all the pretty colors!

  14. Sarah says:

    I have to have lipsticks in every color possible. I am a lipstick hoarder.
    I’m also becoming obsessed with shimmery highlighters. I picked up one of the new UD ones yesterday and I’m in love. I might have to get the whole collection…

  15. Jessie C. says:

    Yes for amazonian clay!

  16. Christa says:

    I just discovered this blog. It’s so cute. I am really enjoying it.

  17. Aj says:

    – I have a lot of gold eyeshadows, in different shades and finishes. I went through a serious phase of them when I first started out with makeup. Even though I threw out/gave away a good portion, I still have a lot left.
    – I like to mix lip products together, especially to make ones that don’t work for me work. I got my best friend onto it too πŸ™‚

  18. Tatiana says:

    I have tons and tons of nail polishes. Many of them really close dupes for each other. I’m going through them now and keeping the best red, the best coral, the best taupe, etc. A lot of my decision of which ones to keep has to do with how long the formula lasts on my nails before chipping. It means I’m keeping a lot of indie polishes and my Tom Fords.
    Glad you were able to get out of the house. I agree with Fran, now you need to work on taking Connor Claire out. Even if it’s only for a 15 minute walk, now that the weather is getting better here in NorCal, it would be great for Connor to get some fresh air. I couldn’t carry my BG in a sling because my back seriously hurt because of my weakened abs from the C-section, so I’d put her in the stroller (ours could be made to lay flat) and take her out for a walk. Sometimes she’d squall for the whole 15 to 20 minutes we were outside but it did seem to make her quieter later in the day. I’d also put her in the car seat and drive. We were living in The Netherlands at the time and I remember once I drove all the way to Germany. Stopped for gas in Germany, turned around and drove home. She stayed asleep even after I took the car seat out of the car. Another thing that helped was one of the bouncy rockers or we had a baby swing for her. Not sure if those are considered safe or even sold here in the U.S.

  19. Kwmechelle says:

    A piece of popular beauty advice you don’t agree with? Totally over the contour craze. I just don’t think it’s practical & necessary for every day wear. I lightly use bronzer to contour & sculpt but the Instagram craze is way over the top πŸ™‚

  20. Rina says:

    Omg, yes for taking a break from the baby! They can be a handful so it’s nice that you got some time off to spend time with the hubby.

    I actually love mixing Camelia oil and Rose hip oil for a whole lot of benefit for the skin (In which both must be pure). And you can always mix this with your foundation to get a dewy finish too.

  21. Allison says:

    I have a zillion nail polishes, in a range of 3-4 colours (mostly variations of red, and rather a lot of glitter).

    I also love different colours of eyeliner…though I don’t have a zillion. Yet.

  22. Teresa Luong says:

    I have lots of sephora nano eyeliners!

  23. Beth says:

    I have so many similar color lipsticks. MLBB shades and I don’t plan on stopping! Have a great weekend!

  24. Nicole Anderson says:

    I’m a total twentyone pilots fan I absolutely love them, even though I’m a born and raised hip hop kinda girl, I just relate so much to there lyrics (:

  25. Maria says:

    Getting out of the house for a bit makes a world of difference

    My makeup is confined to tons of neutrals but I go all out for nail polish. I have that in all the colors!

  26. Alicee says:

    I have eyeshadows in a bunch of colors!!!!

  27. Joni M says:

    Hi karen, so glad to see things are going well with Connor Claire. If you are having rough nights, just know that it will soon pass! Enjoy those sweet moments if you can. I’ve been loving my Vice4 palette lately. Finding different events and adding pops of color to my looks can be so fun!

  28. Holly says:

    I love Urban Decay eyeshadow, but I’m tired of all the glitter. It looks bad when it migrates onto my 40-year-old face. What company produces the same quality shadows in great colors, just without all the glitter?

  29. Justine says:

    I mix anything and everything with my moisturizer because I’m too lazy to apply in layers.

  30. Lindsay says:

    probably the product i have in the most colors is the nars velvet matte lip pencil. love the finish of those so much!

  31. onyinye Elochukwu says:

    I love the shades, wish I’ll aee where to get them.

  32. Aparna says:

    Used to thumb wrestle with my brother all the time πŸ˜€ In fact we still do it when we’re having a war of sorts πŸ˜›

  33. Alix says:

    I have YSL Glossy Stain in seven colors!

  34. Rachel R. says:

    That’s great you got out of the house and got to do some grown-up things. πŸ™‚ Amazonian clay is a big “YES!” for me. I have really oily skin.

  35. Dawn says:

    People always recommend applying a light sparkly shade on the inner corner of the eye to open up the eye area. On me, it just looks like I poked myself in the eye with glitter pen. It does nothing for me.

  36. Jennifer Pham says:

    I think some cooler-toned lipsticks look cool on warmer-toned ladies!

  37. Nicola Keogh says:

    Ah I’m glad you got out in the real world with grown ups for a little break!! Makes coming back to the small ones all the better xx

  38. Amy says:

    Backstreet Boys forever!

  39. Michelle says:

    A piece of beauty advice I don’t agree with is putting on concealer after foundation. Yikes!

  40. Emily says:

    Amazonian clay is great for my oily oily skin 😍

  41. Nicole says:

    I have everything in a bunch of colors lol. #productjunkie

  42. Estefania says:

    I’ve got tons of lipsticks lol I’m obsessed

  43. Mary W says:

    I have lots of nail polishes and lipsticks in so many colors. Doesn’t everyone?

  44. jeanie says:

    i like to mix primer and tinted moisturizer together bc my skin is dry dry dry

  45. Colleen Boudreau says:

    My fave boy band was Nsync!

  46. Kecia says:

    Happy Saturday!

    It’s windy & lightly snowing here today. This weather is CRAZY!!!

    My favorite “boy band”, if you can call them that, is New Edition.

  47. Kim Pincombe Cole says:

    Yay for sneaking away with your husband to the mall – it’s all about the little things when you have a newborn!
    I have at least 6 different shades of foundation in my makeup organizer. I’m tan in the summer & deathly pale in the winter, so I have to customize my shade…

  48. Nina says:

    Amazonian clay : yes! I used to have very oily skin before and now I noticed my skin changing to combination in the more recent months (due to getting older?). Clay works great as a 2-in-1 formula. I can treat both the oily and drier areas of my face with only 1 product saving money and time. And it probably does a better job than if I were to use 2 different products together !

  49. Lydia B. says:

    Most recently, I’ve picked up a TON of the new Burt’s Bees lipsticks. I did not expect to really like these, but I DO! (And just for good measure, my favorite boy band was always NSYNC.)

  50. Lisa Brown says:

    Lip sticks, I have a ton of, so many colors.

  51. Whitney says:

    Amazonian clay dries out my sensitive skin!

  52. Stella Martis says:

    Tomorrow I’ll go jogging with my family ^_^

  53. Claudia Melissa Romero says:

    Im from Honduras and I ADORE MAKEUP, Im a Makeup Addict, I have a lot A LOT of Colourpop Matte Lipsticks, They are the best! Very reasonable prices and so beautiful, I also have almost all shades of L.A Girl concelears.
    what I dont like is the contour every day, I dont think that you can do that every single day, All I do is put on my L.A girl Concelears and My 2 in 1 Powder from Clinique, Mascara, Eyeliner, blush and Im done in 5 minutes.
    I always use neutral eyeshadows THEY GO WITH EVERYTHING!! ☺

  54. Kris says:

    I have no will power! In 2 days I bought TF chocolate Bon bons, sweet peach palette, and the pb & j palette. Damn you TF :).

  55. Aviva says:

    I really love mixing foundations to create the perfect colour for me!

  56. HeraKitty says:

    Converse Chuck Taylor and Superga Cotu sneakers in rainbow colors. 😊

    Happy weekend to you and your family! XO

  57. Lilly says:

    I’m Coming back to work after maternity leave next week. Eeek!!

  58. Isabella says:

    One thing I love mixed at the moment is a matte red lipstick mixed with cream highlighter. I use it as blush, works great!

  59. Laurinha says:

    Hi MBBfamily!
    Have a nice weekend !

  60. Melissa says:

    I so look forward to your blogs! I feel in love with Tabs & Your beautiful self really makes me so happy especially when I’m sad or down! Now precious Connor is in the beauty mix. I so look forward to seeing that gorgeous little piece of heaven on here!! 😘

  61. natasha lamoreux says:

    My favorite boy band of all time is New Kids on the block! Oops did I just give my age away? Thanks for an amazing giveaway!

  62. TrippyPixie says:

    I have a lot of Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils. I got a few gift sets of them for Christmas once, so now I have almost a whole rainbow.

  63. Kara says:

    I love red lipstick and nail-polish and have both in multiple colors!


    I love amazonian clay !!! so much πŸ™‚

  65. LizzyLovesSatan says:

    Just moved and this is the first time Ive been alone in the new apartment… it’s weeeeeird

  66. Natalie says:

    I like to layer Nars Belize lip gloss over my nude, pink, and rose lipsticks!

  67. Lexica says:

    I love the Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliners, partly because they come in such a great range of colors. Somehow a new one jumps into my shopping basket every time I go to Sephora.

  68. Jean says:

    No offense to your interns, but I miss you writing your own articles and photos :/

  69. Melissa says:

    i have about 50 different eye shadow colors!

  70. judyo says:

    i always mix my moisturizer with a drop or two of facial oil –i really like rose oil. thanks for the chance.

  71. marie says:

    because of my rosacea, it’s only been 3 years i’m purchasing beauty products (i’m over 50). Without your website, and others, i would have never known which kind of products i could buy. Still searching for my Holy Grail, so please, continue showing us new stuff.

  72. Laura says:

    I’ve thumb wrestled my husband. He can dislocate his thumb, so he always wins.

  73. Christiana M says:

    So much eye shadow variety in my life!! Love love love the bright colors

  74. Lisa Foster says:

    A product I have in a bunch of colors is nail polish! Too much of it, a lot of them in similar colors, but the little bottles make me happy.

  75. Sandy P says:

    So glad you and El Hub got a chance to get out. Aren’t grandparents wonderful?? I sometimes mix two foundations together if I am not feeling the look that day! I love it when people share what they have purchased with their gift card. Hope it will be me someday

  76. Amy says:

    I am obsessed with the hourglass ambient lighting powders and blushes. Mood exposure and luminous flush are my favorite of the blushes. I love mixing the powders up.

  77. Sarah W says:

    I HAVE SO MANY REVLON LIP BUTTERS. They’re just so easy, and not expensive.

  78. Janetta says:

    Strangely lately I have been loving the Hourglass immaculate foundation as a base for the Tarte Amazonian clay foundation. Together that last and hold like a dream!

  79. Lulu says:

    I am a lipstick maniac:))) I own so many of them in any possible shade!

  80. BJW says:

    Why, yes, I have thumb wrestled… as an adult. I thumb-wrestled my spouse on our first date.

  81. Linda Torres says:

    Hello Karen, I’m glad you and your hubby got out for a few hours, I know it could be tough sometimes. Hang in there πŸ™‚ hope you’re having a great weekend and that you get a day to pamper yourself!

  82. Angel says:

    I have sooooo many lippies in various shades of red and various formulations. Mattes, creams, stains, glosses-you name it and I’ve got it in Crimson. And to think a couple of years ago I was afraid of that red lip. SMH!

  83. Paulina Rios says:

    Love lipsticks!!! Always need more! And for me, My favorite boy band was the BackStreetBoys!!( when I was little, I loved haha)

  84. Bertha says:

    Tarte’s amazonian clay tinted moisturizer is one of my all-time favorites so YES!

  85. Chelsea says:

    I’m glad you were able to get some grown-up time! I love that Uncle Tabby is being a helper.

  86. Lisa says:

    My daughter is the queen of thumb wrestling. I never play with her anymore, LOL.

  87. Christine B says:

    Thank you so much for such a wonderful giveaway! β™₯ My favorite product right now is my Viseart palette, I use it so much and can’t imagine not having it! Pricey but worth it.

  88. Kirsten says:

    What’s a product you have in a bunch of colors? There are a couple of liquid matte lipsticks that I have in several colors. And Mac pro pans.

  89. jill says:

    My oily skin thanks me for discovering Hourglass Veil mineral primer. This in combination with EstΓ©e Lauder Double Wear (lightly applied with Beauty Blender) makes my skin look the best it ever has and stay that way all day!

  90. Aurelie Red says:

    Hi Karen, I disagree with eyes OR mouth.
    I love black eyeliner with beautiful red lips β™₯

  91. Dominique says:

    Favorite boy band is New Kids on the Block πŸ˜™πŸ˜™πŸ˜™πŸ˜™

  92. Lynn T. says:

    i love to mix my Tarte and Laura Mercier foundations to get a better matching color and texture.

  93. Rhoda K says:

    Haha me and my sister used to thumb wrestle all the time – I’d forgotten that!

  94. Jordi says:

    Eyeliners seems like cheating, because if you like a formula, it only makes sense to buy a ton… which is why I have dozens of Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliners!

  95. Elaina says:

    I have TONS of pink lipstick!

  96. Two hours out of the house with the husband, that is seriously amazing! Grandparents are the best invention ever.

  97. Margaret Smith says:

    I’d be lost without a light bronzer. I think that a little dusting really makes me look better. Also love lip glosses and always keep a number in my purse.

  98. Trillina Palemi says:

    Amazonian clay…yes! πŸ™‚

  99. Heather L says:

    Such good questions! If with the first question you mean specific product by a specific brand, I have a most of the Nars Audacious lipstick line (still my favorite lip products ever!), many MAC lipsticks, many Ofra liquid lipsticks, some other brands I have several but less than 10. I have a shameful number of OPI, Julep, and China Glaze nail polishes as well! I have most of the Clinique color pop blushes also, love those.

    I really like to mix foundations together. My favorite mix, that I use most often, is Marc Jacobs Remarcable with a couple drops of Too Faced Born This Way and a smidge of Givenchy Teint Couture Balm.

    I definitely don’t agree with the advise that “older” women shouldn’t wear vibrant colors of makeup. We deserve to have fun too! Besides that, I get way more compliments when I wear blue and green eyeshadows and dark or vibrant lip colors than when I wear nudes!

    Yes on Amazonian Clay! My favorite product is the Full Coverage Foundation, my second go-to after my Holy Grail Marc Jacobs Remarcable.

  100. Pauline says:

    Thank goodness for grandparents and family. You need to get out of the house for a while after having a baby.

  101. CatG says:

    I did full makeup for the first time the other day. It felt really nice to get all dolled up again. It was also my first attempt at doing a cut crease and it wasn’t a total disaster haha!

  102. AlyOtto says:

    We were just in the Bay Area! I wish someone would open a cat cafe where we live. I’m pretty sure my Anabelle-Cow would love a mani-pedi while she sips on her cappuccino. >_<

  103. Mickey says:

    Hi Karen, glad that you’re able to go out!!! It is tough, some of my friends who are moms found it so fun to go out and do simple things!

    What do I have that I have in multiple colors? I guess an eye shadow palette by stila and some Clinique chubby sticks, but I have to say… That stila palette isn’t very pigmented so I’m switching. I honestly can’t decide between the chocolate bar palette by too faced or the naked smokey palette. Any ideas anyone? With the Sephora sale coming up, I just might get a new palette! Thoughts?

  104. Karen K says:

    Happy Caturday! I hope you’re getting some time for yourself today.
    Which items do I own multiple colours of? Lip products, hands-down. I can’t help myself. πŸ’‹πŸ˜

  105. Jen L. says:

    Still love Backstreet Boys!πŸ˜€

  106. Brian says:

    Lipstick and lip gloss. I don’t think there is any lip color that I am against wearing or owning lol

  107. Amoure Jones says:

    Happy Saturday
    What’s a product you have in a bunch of colors?

  108. Nicole says:

    I have a fair few Rouge Coco lipsticks. I love the formula!

  109. Deretta says:

    I just got done keeping our 8-week old granddaughter for four hours – I got nothing thing done but taking care of her!

  110. jeny says:

    The amount of lipsticks i have in different shades of nude (cuhs like no they’re not all the same) is insane.
    Also, idk if it’s considered mixing but man spraying fix plus on concealer that hasn’t been blended yet then blending with a beauty blender is the best thing i ever discovered.

  111. Christina says:

    98 Degrees, anyone? So croony πŸ™‚

  112. claudia says:

    Today was the first day I started putting foundation on with a makeup brush. All I can say is interesting. Not sure if I like it.

  113. Maddie says:

    I always gravitate toward pinky-peaches, especially for lips and cheeks.

  114. Tori says:

    I have a chronic dusty rose lip product problem. A $50 Sephora voucher would be a great enabler :’D

  115. Maren says:

    I have tons of lip colors & I plan to use all of them.

    Greets for Connor Clarie, and Le Tabs

  117. Deb says:

    I don’t have any strong opinions on the questions this time so I just want to say thanks for the giveaway!

  118. Denise S says:

    I own way too much eye shadow. Especially singles. I fall in love with a color, then only use it a few times because I prefer the convenience of a palette.

  119. Amanda says:

    I have lipsticks and eye shadows in every color. I’ve been a long time MAC hoarder lol!

  120. Tracy Robertson says:

    Your line about Uncle Tabby’s amazing nanny services cracks me up, you are such a funny lady! When I find a shirt I like on sale, I want to buy one in several colors. Target and Old Navy have sales where it’s like $7 for a shirt and they carry every color in the rainbow. It’s hard not to go crazy and get them all!

  121. Stephanie G says:

    I have a ridiculous number of lipsticks, and an insane amount of nail polish!
    And Backstreet Boys are my fave. πŸ™‚

  122. Tania g says:

    Getting out of the house by yourself for a bit is like a nice treat. I know that feeling too well πŸ™‚ Enjoy!

  123. Hollie says:

    I own more eyeshadows than anything else. I have a love/hate relationship with new releases. I ask myself, how many brown eyeshadows do I need? All of them…I really need to just stop! Bon Jovi would be my favorite band, although I’m not sure if they are considered a “Boy Band ” by today’s standard. They are all boys and a band, so to me it counts. It must’ve felt so good to get out for a little while!!’ Thanks again for another giveaway!

  124. cel says:

    Something I learned recently that was always a no-no to a lot of people was that you shouldn’t use black on your eyebrows, but that’s worked out for me the best.

  125. Fernanda Gomez says:

    My favorite boyband is 5 Seconds of summer!!! really love that boys! <3

  126. Selly Martinez says:

    Those Tarte duo lippies are incredible! Amazonia clay is a yes:). A tip I learned with my 3 sons, put them in their car seat or bouncy seat, put in top of the dryer and turn it on. For some reason it soothes them and they sleep well at night! (Of course not all night on the dryer but it gets them there lol)

  192. Christine says:

    I’m completely undecided when it comes to BB cream. I love it for a few days, then I’m so over it. And this cycle repeats itself every 2 weeks or so. It looks great but feels tacky which I can’t stand.

  193. Domi says:

    Accessories I basically have in all colors. I thought of eye shadows, lipsticks, nail polish and clothes but all those categories lack some hues because not all colors work with my complexion. Alas, accessories I have in almost every color because wearing a color that is not the best for me, really works as an accessorie.

For example, yesterday I blended MAC Sunny By Nature (a medium matte brown) with MAC Cheeky Bronze MSF. Gorge!–didn’t even need blush or finishing powder after that. am now pulling out some older (mostly unused) MSFs and trying them out in conjunction with neutral blushes and matte bronzing powders.

  299. Lorie says:

  300. susan says:

    We love thumb wrestling at our home!

  301. em says:

    All time fave boy band is New Kids On The Block

  302. Savannah Hadden says:

    My favorite boy band will forever be N*sync!

  303. Cecilia L. Wong says:

    I’m sure your parents were thrilled to babysit Connor. I’d pay to babysit my grandchildren!

  304. Colleen P. says:

    I have Zoya nail polish in so many colors. My favorite brand!

  305. Elena says:

    N sync! Connor is adorable!

  306. JackieC says:

    I have lipsticks in tons of colors. So many colors that I have a few that are repeats. I’m really going to try to work on the duplicates so that I don’t have so many at one time.

  307. Barbara B says:

    I have a ridiculous amount of nail polish colors!

  308. Virginia says:

    I haven’t tried Amazonian clay yet, but I’ve heard great things.

  309. Robyn Bellefleur says:

    My favorite boy band is NKOTB.

  310. NFJ says:

    A piece of popular beauty advice you don’t agree with?

    There are a lot of “natural” beauty treatments which various gurus are all about, one being lemon. Tried some for mild dark spots on my skin and burned the skin so badly had to get medical treatment and treat with salve for months! Found Lancome Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector and it’s finally repairing the damage. After a scolding from my Derm. I now ONLY use products I can buy, not stuff I can whip up unsupervised in my kitchen. Our skin is our largest organ, take advice from medical professionals, not people who have tried stuff and given their reviews, all our skin is different, just like we are! Luckily, I learned my lesson without major damage. Have a great week everyone!

  311. Fei Fei says:

    Fell in love with coca colored lip products recently! Love love love the new temptation waits shade from the Tom Ford soleil collection. Cannot wait to get my hands on one.

  312. zVintageFashionizta says:

    I have way to many eyeshadows! Besides the tons of neutrals I buy many teals/turquoise/aqua shades just because I love looking at them but I rarely wear them.

  313. Toan tran says:

    Big Bang is my favorite boy band! 😎

  314. Julie says:

    As a person with hooded eyelids, I really disagree with the conventional wisdom that hooded eyes shouldn’t use shimmery/glittery shades. As long as I put a matte color in my ‘crease’ (aka above my actual crease) I find that I can use whatever shades I want on the lid itself!
    Julie recently posted … March Favourites

  315. Birgit L. says:

    Two products I love to mix? My favorite combo of course – tea & books πŸ™‚

  316. Daniela says:

    Chanel nail polishes, the formula is simply the best.
    And some tops, t-shirts and shoes that work for me, so I keep on buying these in new colors.

  317. Julie Murphy says:

    yep thumb wrestle back in the day

  318. Heather G says:

    I am over the weather in Ohio and ready to move to a warmer state.

  319. Stephanie Hartman says:

    My all time favorite boy band is NKOTB, they were my first concert ever and I still love them today.

  320. Kim says:

    Sounds like a great break! Bath, bottle, bed (by 7 PM) always worked for us when the boys were babies. Not everyone is a fan but we kept to a very strict routine and couldn’t have gotten through without it. πŸ™‚ They needed a lot of sleep and never slept in, no matter what time they went to bed, so they had a 7 PM bedtime through most of elementary school as well. Of course, all kids are different!

  321. Rayshawn Shallow says:

    Happy Monday everyone!!

  322. Amy Tebow says:

    I always mix my lipstick! I use a liner and then two lip colors to make the perfect color!

  323. LynneT says:

    I have lot’s of eyeshadow colors, I love having a wide variety of them to choose from.

  324. Shakeia Rieux says:

    I say yes to Amazonian clay

  325. Melanie says:

    I just wanted to say congrats on that beautiful little baby girl, she is absolutely adorable!!!!!!!!

  326. rachel says:

    β€’What are two products you really like to mix together? Ive always mixed together all kinds of products! I hate wasting stuff so I mix what doesn’t work for me to be able to use it. Case in point: lipsticks that are too light, mixed with a black (yes black!) lipgloss. Also, sunscreen and foundation to get a tinted one since most pretinted sunscreens are waaaay to light for me (or most pretinted anything really!) Ive also enjoyed mixing clear nail polishes and eyeshadows to make custom nail colors–great for those shadows that just don’t work for me!

  327. Andrea says:

    What’s a product you have in a bunch of colors? Lipstick!!

    What are two products you really like to mix together? Facial oil and tinted moisturizer (my skin is so dry)

    Have you ever thumb wrestled anyone? Heck yes!

    Favorite boy band? Too hard to choose!

    Amazonian clay: yes or no? YES, love the amazonian clay blushes…

    Congrats on opening your cat cafe/makeup store!! πŸ™‚

  328. Lena says:

    I have lots of Essie nail polishes

  329. veronica lee says:

    I love to mix my lipstick colours ‘cos I can never get the perfect coral shade that I want.

  330. TallulahJane says:

    I miss a lot of products together. I especially combine my lipsticks if I’m looking for a particular color. Sometimes I mix eye colors to get just the right shade.

  331. Trinh Q. says:

    The product I have in a bunch of colors would be my nail polishes. I see a new color on the shelf I must buy it.

  332. Marissa says:

    I have to post about my favorite boy band just because it’s the most fun question ever!! When I was a pre-teen I LOVED NSYNC. But as I’ve gotten older, aka 30 years old lol, I look back on the Backstreet Boys as having really great songs!! πŸ™‚

  333. Thea says:

    I love amazoninan clay πŸ™‚

  334. Dawn Monroe says:

    I have been mixing and matching nail polish. I’m loving all the spring colors.

  335. Jessica Rubinson says:

    I love to mix Mac lipstick in saint German and Be Silly to create the perfect shade of pink!

  336. Anne Perry says:

    New Kids on the Block.

  337. Annmarie W. says:

    I’m excited about this prize! I used to wear makeup all the time when I was younger, but after having kids I got out of the habit. And now that my kids are teens, I realize that it’s really time to take care of myself & think about beauty a bit more!

  338. Katie Bellamy says:

    I’ve let myself go a little, having 2 toddlers. I would totally use this gift card on myself and pamper me a little! πŸ™‚

  339. Charlotte says:

    Hmm, beauty advice I don’t agree with… The bigger the brow, the better. It depends on features and face — I’ve seen faces swamped by brows that take up 1/3 of face real estate. A truism for life and beauty is FIGURE OUT WHAT IS RIGHT FOR YOU.

  340. sheila ressel says:

    I have ton of different colors of nail polish.

  341. Tali May says:

    I hope I win. Sephora has so many products I want. Not to mention they’re now selling Tom Ford and this gift card will def help!!!

  342. lissa crane says:

    A product I have in a bunch of colors and love, is the Estee Lauder All-Day Lipstick! I have it in all three of the colors they offer it in, because it really does last all day and I love the shades it comes in!

  343. Christine says:

    Bunches of lipsticks in bunches of colors and finishes. Tabs is still a model (in all meanings) kitty. πŸ˜‰

    I am not a big makeup user. I love IT makeup.

  349. Sara says:

  353. Marissa says:

    My boy band was definitely NKOTB. Jordan and Joey forever! I love mixing foundations together to get the right color/consistency.

  354. Faye Gates says:

    I am so into my nails. I love doing them. People ask me a lot of times if they are fake. I drink a protein shake every day, and I think that helps with my nails being able to grow long and hard.

  355. Gail says:

    Lipstick – in fact i am shocked at my stash

  356. Maria Kr says:

    I wasn’t here for a couple of weeks, so Congrats on becoming a mom!!!!!! πŸ™‚

    I’m from Germany and it is hard and/or expensive to get some Brands like Too Faced or Tarte. My brother will be in New York in May/June so a Sephora Gift Card would be really nice πŸ™‚
    If I win or not, I will ask him to buy me the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette. That’s for sure. I also have a long list of other Products. But my limit is 150$ for everything. I really would like to try something from Tarte and Make Up Forever. Maybe Nars (there will be a new Summer Collection).

    Are there any MUST HAVES? πŸ™‚

    Thank you and have a lovely day!

  357. Patricia E. says:

    I do like to mix my own foundation color to get the perfect match for my skin color.

  364. Cheryl Larimer says:

    I would love to learn to put on eyeliner to help these sagging eyes. When I put in the effort, I am pretty happy with the results. I think the right products might help. Yay, the sun is out and the snow has all melted.

  365. Angelica Dimeo says:

  370. jane kramer says:

    I love lip gloss. I’m addicted to it!!

  373. Brook B says:

  382. Pam Halligan says:

    My favorite makeup products are eyeshadow and nail polish. I also can’t stand to be without lip balm.

  383. deanna says:

    I don’t leave the house without eye liner on my face.

  384. Marina says:

    Omg your image on this post has the item on the top of my wishlist!! Ive been wanting the tarte lip sculptor duo in basic since it came out. I think it’s only sold at ulta, but I would not have any problems finding something to spend it on. That wishlist of mine is miles long!

  389. Princess Gabbara says:

  394. Leah Shumack says:

    My favorite boy band had to be 98 degrees! And Boyz II Men was a very close second but since they have been back around a little bit I think they might be taking over the top spot once again! I love seeing Wanye on Dancing with the Stars!

  395. Amanda P says:

    Not one specific brand but I have a lot of lipsticks in many different shades (I’m over 60 now!) I love organizing them in lipstick holders and playing with different shades and finishes!

  396. Tash says:

    Fave boy band? Backstreet Boys, Boyz II Men, Westlife! And one Korean band called INFINITE *which is surprising because I actually despise K-pop as I am more into K-ballads and those underrated artists;;* I’m thanking God for Adele and the likes because pop music has gone downhill. Too many fame-thirst kids trying to gain popularity ASAP so they just do whatever that is ‘in’…resulting in mediocre singing, meaningless lyrics, homogenous melodies with scary amount of auto-tunes, unoriginal dance moves, even similar looks. I miss times when music is about music. πŸ™ -end of rant from a butthurt listener*

  397. Brenda Disimone says:

    Today at sephora i bought a chocolate bar palette

  403. Vendela Elvbo says:

    wow i love sephora. in desperate need of some new lip colours, only have like 5 lipsticks, hashtagfirstworldproblem

  404. KAT says:

    I looove blushes and cannot get enough of them! They are easy and quick to apply in the morning, and add a nice pop of colour to brighten up the face πŸ™‚
