A Makeup and Beauty Blog giveaway

Two Ways to Win a Sephora eCard on Makeup and Beauty Blog


So, the movie, Oblivion, I hearted it much more than I expected. It was maybe a tad slow at times…but I thought it had some thought provoking ideas. I have to say, though, I’m a big sci-fi fan, so I unconsciously overlook plot holes sometimes.

Tom Cruise was, ya know, Cruisin’ it up, being his usual…efficient self. It’s weird, but that guy always has to sprint or run somewhere in his movies. Ever notice that? Maybe it’s written into his contract: “Mr. Cruise must run for a minimum of 200 yards at an all-out sprint for a total of no less than 20 seconds of screen time.” Haha.

I thought the special effects were great, with contrasting grimy elements and sparse, clean machines and empty landscapes. The CGI doesn’t look overly CGI, either. The whole thing looks like a cross between Bladerunner and Minority Report. And there are these unemotional, terrifying guard machines in it called drones that are scary like flying terminators!

In other news, El Hub did notice my eye makeup last night. Not specifically the blending, but he said, “Your makeup looks pretty,” which translates to everything I wanted to hear. πŸ™‚

Have yourself a great weekend, okay? I haven’t figured out my game plan yet. Probably just some errands and chores around the house. Talk to you soon.

Good luck in this weekend’s giveaway. Details to enter are down below.

What folks are saying…

“Hi Karen!!! Wow, that news definitely gets a hoo ray ray and an elephant!!! (I’ve maybe been watching too much Boardwalk Empire.) Thank you so much!!!”

“What a lovely surprise it was to see your announcement (after completing one of many exams/papers/projects I have this crazy week)! The eCard will definitely ease expenses for this broke, beauty-obsessed college student. Thank you, Karen and Tabs!!”

“Thanks so much, Karen. Just in case you were wondering what I got with it, I decided to go with the Clarisonic Mia–I’ve been wanting it for years now, but have never purchased it because of the price. Your eCard helped me finally buy it! I look forward to using it. Thanks again!”

“Shut the front door! OMG Karen, you have made my day. πŸ™‚ I’m sick in bed with the flu and this has just cheered me up immensely!!!!!!!! BTW, I’m the one that sent you that pic of my pug in a wig a few weeks back LOL! Thanks again, honestly, I’m beyond giddy right now.”

“Thank you SO much Karen! OMG! Wishes really do come true! I can’t believe I won! You have no idea how much this will help me through the holidays. I’ve been an avid fan of your blog for the past two years. Your witty and creative entries, informative makeup information, and beautiful photos have kept me hooked. I look forward to more of it. Goodness, you’ve
seriously just made my week and it’s only Tuesday night!”

“Oh my goodness! Thank you so much Karen (and Tabs, of course)! I really appreciate this! I’d been eyeing the Anastasia brow pencil in Strawburn to match my red hair!”

  1. Jace says:

    Hi Karen! I’m sick in bed and your website is making me feel so much better (I think it has to do with all the lovely colors. And Tabs! Yay!)
    So thank you. Have a beautiful weekend πŸ™‚

  2. I am SO in. Just had about the worst night and day of my life. To list a few things that happened: boyfriend got so drunk last night that he had to be taken home by some mystery girl he met (great), he lost our laptop (not sure yet if we’ll ever find or get it back), got in a big fight with one of the neighbors because I used the laundry machine in the building without his permission (boyfriend had thrown up in our bed so it was an urgency…), accidentally dyed all the laundry pink because there was a red towel in there somewhere, and dropped (and broke) my new Chanel lipstick. All in less than 24 hours. And I am sure I am forgetting things…

  4. Ineke says:

    I reorganized my shoes today. Lesson learned?… Stop buying shoes?… Hmmm
    Hugs to Tabs. Have a great weekend!

  5. Niya says:

    Not a movie or book, but Roswell is my favorite sci-fi series. It’s this cross between sci-fi and romance, about a girl who falls in love with an alien. It sounds corny but the execution was really well done, it was filmed in the late 90s/early 00s so it has a nice nostalgic vibe to it if you watch it back and it’s made by the same guy who produced Friday Night Lights and Parenthood. Really loved that show

  6. Tina says:

    Just bought a Nars blush at Sephora!

  7. Alida Giordano says:

    Good morning Karen! I though I was the only one who noticed Tom Cruise sprints in his movies. He straits his back and push it forward! I just love the way he runs. (I think he runs like a… demon! hihi) I also love the way Matt Damon runs. I just love to see guys running. I’m loving everything today. OMG, the pics you posted yesterday, you and Tabs huggin! Amazing ones. XOXO from Cancun!

  8. Veronica says:

    I watched the latest Ryan Gosling movie this weekend, The Place Beyond the Pines… excellent!!!

    Blade Runner is my favorite sci-fi movie.

  10. Jacque says:

    I used to think I couldn’t wear lime green eyeshadow, but for kicks I tried it out the other day and actually loved it! Who’d of thought?

    On another note, your recent poll reminded me that my dog Snoop was sometimes curious when I put on lipstick, but he probably just thought it might be food. He was a little food obsessed πŸ™‚

  11. Jerilyn says:

    Yay! What a great giveaway πŸ™‚ My least favourite eye shadow colour is blue. I’ve never been able to find one that looks classy on me.

  12. Nat M says:

  19. C R Williams says:

    Jesus is real : )

  20. Katrina says:

    I have such a hard time figuring out if I’m cool or warm skinned tone that I like to say I’m neutral. One of these days I should have it professionally diagnosed:)

  21. Laura says:

    I would love to just study languages all the time, to practice conversations with native speakers. Or study abroad again and be fully immersed in French, Italian, or Japanese.

  22. Tiffanie says:

    I have been into looks that emphasize blush a lot lately so I haven’t worn any colored eyeshadows in a while. I’ve basically just worn cream, beige and bronze.

  23. Mush says:

    Would be happy to take a gift card off your hands!

  24. Aelyn says:

    Yellow. There’s Just something about that color that makes it hideous on my eyes! And bright green… that looks weird too.

  31. Leonora says:

    Hi Karen,

    I thought I will never wear a dark pink or purple eye shadow. I always had the feeling will make me look like I’m sick. Last week for the first time I tried a purple one and I actually liked it a lot. Maybe because it such such a nice purple that I could not resist and thought it will be a great time to try it. I am not sure if I will ever try a deep pink or red on my eyelids, but for now I’m loving the purple.

  32. camille says:

    karen! i was so stoked for those bare minerals lipsticks, that i didn’t read that they’re available next month! sayang and 15% off at sephora! :/ way too excited to try those lipsticks! gonna try bobbi brown’s concealer, with the 15% off coupon πŸ™‚ hope you’re having a great weekend!

  37. Laura Maria Ayrosa Giordano says:

    Have I ever told you my dogs’s name is Fred? His is lying under my chair now……

  38. Annaham says:

    My favorite sci-fi film would be a two-way tie between David Cronenberg’s Videodrome (1983–and yes, OCC named one of the nail polishes in its recent LE collection after this film!) and EXISTENZ (2000, same director). Both are super creepy!

  39. Lisa Brown says:

    I sooooo wish I could go back to school for photography!!

I love your sense of humor, it just brightens my day. πŸ™‚
    Your loyal reader, Kat

  43. Lan says:

  44. Amy says:

    I hauled way too much during this Sephora Chic Week sale.

  45. GB says:

  46. sarah says:

    My skin is yellow-toned, which makes it warm, I think, but not orange/red warm.

  47. Jennifer Ryder says:

    My favorite blue polishes are Bikini So Teeny from Essie and Princess from Cult Nails.

  48. glasses says:

    I just bought a shiseido eyelash curler and hourglass muse liquid lipstick with the 15% off sale at Sephora. I’ve been obsessed with muse since seeing here, and my shu uemera curler finally bit the dust :'(

  49. Erika Santos says:

    I am so in love with them Nars x Pierre Hardy blushes!

  50. Meredith says:

  51. Ellen says:

    Least fave eyeshadow for me has to be either red or yellow. Props to those who can wear them!

    the Dior shadows looks so awesome on you, I’m so jealous that I don’t have the skin tone to pull them off.

  57. Petunia says:

    Today I am going to try to wear green eye shadow. Never managed to get it right.

    Hiiiiii! Today is a beautiful day, gonna do something outdoors-y πŸ™‚

  59. Jasmine says:

    I like Essie’s “mint candy apple” πŸ™‚

  60. Rachel says:

    Babylon 5 is my favorite show of all-time. Every time I finish watching it, I start it over again. I am a huge fan of sci-fi, but I find a lot of them lose the human element which is what makes us connect. Babylon 5 truly is a study in characters, with a sci-fi background. It’s about working through our differences to create a better future, all while facing the human nature to acquire power. Doing what is right instead of what is convenient. It’s got some similar elements to Star Trek, but much more human. They don’t live in this great society where everyone works for free and whatnot. They live in our world, people are still people and no one does anything without ulterior motives. The characters are fantastic and full-fleshed. It’s a show that makes me want to be part of something bigger than myself, and to be a better person. Shows like it don’t come along very often. It’s been off the air for nearly 15 years and I don’t know many people that even remember it… but if you haven’t watched it, please do. <3

  61. Trang says:

    I really want the new Dior palettes so badly!!

  62. Julia says:

    Purple has to be my least favorite eyeshadow color! Weird because I can usually rock most eyeshadow colors, including bright chartreuse, orange, pink, red, bright cobalt … I totes dig purple shadow on other peeps, but it just looks “off” on me.

  63. Maria says:

    I’m going to be cliche and say Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy πŸ™‚ Thank you!

  64. Y. says:

    skin is warm tone aka super annoying!!

  65. Joy says:

    Does Doctor Who or Eureka count?

  66. Alison says:

    I love blue eye shadows in swatches and on other people, but whenever I actually try to wear one, it just looks like way too much.

  67. Dorothy says:

    Going to Hong Kong this summer!

  68. Julia Alkaseltzer says:

    Sci-fi film or book — I think the most thrilling I’ve read was Ender’s Game. I’m trying to get into the whole series!

    Best movie makeup — I’d have to give this one to Lord of the Rings. From the ugly orcs to the youthful elves.

    Least favorite eye makeup color — I’m going with dark teal.

    Just taking a relaxing Saturday off. Hope you’re having a wonderful Saturday, too, Karen!!

  69. hong le says:

  72. Amy Z says:

    I’ve been looking for the perfect creamy turqouise-blue nail polish right now! I feel like the color just exudes class and elegance =)

  73. Caitlin says:

    Blue nail polish can be tricky, especially when you’re as pale as I am, because you look like you’re having severe breathing problems and turning blue. Lol. But a navy blue or a silvery blue could probably be okay.

  74. Marly~ says:

    SO excited. finally getting my hands on the new tarte waterproof palette. πŸ˜€

  75. Lala says:

    I just bought 6 maybelline color whisper lipbalms on a bogo 1/2off at Rite Aid. I feel guilty…and poor! πŸ˜‰

    Thanks for reviewing! My bf and i want to see the movie πŸ˜€

  78. Michelle says:

    He is ALWAYS running! Ha! Do you think it’s worth the big screen or should I wait for the blue-ray and watch it on my big screen?

  79. Toby says:

    Favourite sci-fi book is Monica Hughes’s Invitation to the Game. πŸ™‚

  80. Joanne E. says:

    Does anyone look good with yellow eyeshadow?

  81. Becca says:


  82. Denise says:

    My favorite blue nail polish is Sinful Color’s Cinderella. It takes a million coats before it’s opaque, but I can’t resist the name so I love it.

  83. Margie says:

    My fave blue-green nail polish is China Glaze For Audrey.

  84. Julie Greenwood says:

    I’m a big fan of Star Trek, The Next Generation, but mostly because I like Patrick Stewart.

  85. Amanda says:

    I LOVE blue nail polish! I have more blues and greens than anything. China Glaze For Audrey and Essie Smooth Sailing are two of my very favorites.

  89. Christina says:

    Loved The X Files movie. I’m a cornball.

  90. Aida says:

    We saw Oblivion last night too, but even though it was an interesting concept, I found it a not boring and predictable. Tom Cruise looked pretty sexy in this leather suite, riding his bike, though ;).

  91. VictoriaJane says:

    Bladerunner is my absolute favorite movie of all time. Be still my beating heart, Deckard . . .

  92. Lamisse says:

    My favourite blue/green nail polish is
    across the Universe by Deborah Lippmann! Sooooo much glitter glasm in a tiny square bottle. Love.

  93. Karen K says:

    Yellow is my least favorite eye makeup color. Well, tied with Orange. Eww. I am cool toned. Here’s a confessional for you. I have been SO good about not buying makeup lately (except that episode with the Sonia Kashuk quad you made me buy) but a You Tube video pushed me over the edge and made me buy stuff from Sephora and Nordstrom in the wee hours of the night. Back on the wagon. The wagon that is overloaded with too much makeup!

  94. Ruchita says:

    Happy Saturday!

  95. MollySC says:

  105. Elena says:

    My least favorite eye makeup color is green

  106. ReneeP says:

    I am ill in bed. Wish I watched TV, but I have your blog instead!

  108. Kim says:

    My husband and I r in the process of buying a house in Vacaville. What’s the best mall around there? I’ve only lived in so cal up until this point. Thanks!

    Still being tempted by those nars pencils!

  112. Lydia says:

    My least favorite eye makeup color is blue.

  113. Kristen says:

    I think the makeup in “Les Mis” was amazing. Yeah, all that dirt and grime was awesome (and blood…and just Hugh Jackman), but I did notice in the giant close ups of Amanda Seyfried’s face, she looked like she was wearing nothing, she just looked like a normal girl, which I love when movies do that.

  114. Heather USA (fb: rosie areola/@aitch77) says:

    Boston Strong! πŸ˜€

  115. Krista says:

    I always loved Stargate.

  116. dawn says:

    Firefly is the best sci fi show ever!

  117. Ashley says:

    My least favorite eye shadow color is blue. I like it on other people, but I just can’t get it to work for me. However, “blue me away” by Sally Hanson is one of my all time favorite nail polish colors. That, and “Mint Sprint.”

  118. Maple says:

    Love purple eye makeup!

  119. Lennie says:

    Lychee season will start in 3-weeks, then mango season starts…yes!! Miss Cali, but South Florida is awesome. Have good weekend!

    Best movie makeup? Atonement, The Golden Compass, Pride & Prejudice…there are a few!

  123. Lynn says:

    Don’t know much about scifi movies, but Buffy and Firefly are definitely the top shows!

    The cherry blossoms turned to leaves in DC this past week. Are they gone in San Francisco too?

  128. Ana Macedo says:

    Same here! My hubby is so clueless about make-up so if and when he does notice, that is a very big thing for me! I still blush.

  130. Jessy W says:

    I am finally home after 3 months in a hotel because of a house fire. Glad to be home πŸ™‚

  131. MLV says:

    I love eyeshadows…. I have tons of eyeshadows. I hope to get more for my collection πŸ™‚

  132. Angela says:

    I enjoyed Oblivion. I didn’t think I would because Tom Cruise usually gets on my nerves. This time I found him tolerable.

  133. Nora says:

    My two kitties luv seeing Tabs!!! πŸ™‚

  134. Kate Williamson says:

    Just discovered Illamasqua blushes. It’s love!

  135. Zoey says:

    I love OPI’s What’s with the Cattitude? from the Shrek collection!

  136. Cristi says:

    I’m kinda brokish right now, so I’d use this for buying my mom’s Mother’s Day gift. πŸ™‚

  137. Dorothy says:

    Hi Karen! I’m not a big sci-fi fan, but two short stories I like that are somewhat in that vein (if you will) are “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson and “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas” by Ursula K LeGuin. Check ’em out!

  138. Jenna D says:

    I love blue nail polish

  139. Amie says:

    My skin tone is neutral to cool. My least favorite eye shadow color is medium brown (I know most people LOVE neutrals but they just aren’t my favorites)

  140. Kristen says:

    I can’t stand Tom Cruise and haven’t seen one of his movies since “Born on the 4th of July,” long before he jumped on Oprah’s couch. I hope this doesn’t reduce my chances of winning.

  141. Evelyn says:

    my favourite blue/green is For Audrey by China Glaze!

    Happy weekend =). My favorite sci-fi book is Hyperion by Dan Simmons. I would recommend the book so much. I love the makeup in sci-fi and fantasy movies. Also historical ones like Cleopatra. Her eye makeup was so amazing lol.

  146. eRiN says:

    Least favorite eyeshadow is orange. I can shades of red or yellow work, but orange never works on me.

  147. Alyza Rae says:

    I only have five more days left of my freshman year of college! Ohmygod how did that happen!?!

  148. megan says:

    I saw Oblivion today and liked it more than I thought I would too! I was tellin my fiance how much I liked the set design and overall plot. Though, yes, it did drag at some points!

  149. Sunny says:

    Just came across your site for the first time while searching for concealer reviews, and I love it! I am sold on the new Nars Radiant concealer based on your post and plan to get it from Sephora ASAP! I don’t know makeup very well, and am excited to find recommendations from a fab girl with some color (I’m Indian). You may push me out of my makeup comfort zone!

  150. Deborah says:

    I finally gave in and ordered the Chanel Loose Powder… can’t wait to see how it works!

  151. Lori P says:

    I’m warm toned in skin color and I don’t care much for any shade of blue eye shadows. They are too hard to work with for me.

  152. Sylvia says:

    I’m in Illinois where we enjoyed some sunshine today (yay!) but also a chill wind ( not yay ), and I froze my toes because I want to wear sandals! I’m spending tonight watching a movie or maybe two, and being held down by a tiny cat.

  153. jasmine says:

    Omg ate too many girl guide cookies. Anyway my least favourite eye shadow colour is probably blue.

  154. LauraA says:

    Least favorite shadow shade is a bright, true red. I find it hard to work with. Although it typically looks lovely in some of the palettes I’ve seen it in.

  182. Melissa says:

    My bf, my brother, and I have been debating whether to see that movie or not!

  183. Lorraine says:

    Fave sci fi movie- Star Wars Empire Strikes Back. Also the worst movie makeup scene in that one- Leia with gloppy lips and running mascara in her emo scene on the jawa’s bridge. LOL! fave movie makeup is from vintage films- TCM films from the ’30s ’40s and ’50s. Current fave movie makeup: Downton Abbey, Oz the Great and Powerful.

  184. Kelly W says:

    Haven’t seen Oblivion, but Tom in Top Gun is my ultimate, favorite movie. Ever. Doesn’t get any better than that!

  185. Saffron says:

    I am home on saturday night having to do work and this most makes me daydream about makeup, which is a nice distraction. πŸ˜€ Thanks for the contest!

  186. Sarah says:

    I’ve read the first two books in the Hunger Games series and am very excited to get the third book. It’s sort of sci-fi so I guess their my favourite books in that genre.

  187. Edna says:

    I like nail polish a lot, blue and purple are mu favorite colors.

    My favorite sci-fi movie is definitely Blade Runner!

  205. Kala says:

    Have you seen any good indie movies lately?

  206. Kylie says:

    If I could go back to school and didn’t have to pay a dime for it, I would study theater/acting. I always had an interest in it, but I let my fear of being out there on the stage scare me. It may be as “useless” as majoring in English Literature and not being a teacher, but I’m sure I would have had fun and made lots of awesome friends. πŸ™

  207. Michelle Teixeira says:

    I wore a grass green matte shadow today with a beige cream shadow base and it still stained my eye lids. Thanks MUFE. But, that just gave me a reason to stand on the steam shower for 10 more minutes. So it wasn’t the worst thing I have ever experienced makeup wise.

  208. Heidi says:

    I try to never say never when it comes to makeup colors, but I’m not sure I could pull of red shadow without looking insane or ill!

  209. Clemence says:

    I really love Essie’s Turquoise and Caicos

  210. Maria says:

    Hi, Tabs and Karen! This is Maria from Boston, and I’m reporting that we’ve had a pretty tough week in the Hub :(. The past week has been full of emotion, stress, sleepless nights, and finally the capture of one of the suspects. I love your blog because it is so cheery, fun, and colorful! I love all of the pictures of Tabs, too :). I go to Northeastern, and today they had therapy dogs come visit we students on campus. Where are the therapy cats, I say!? I wonder if Tabs has ever done any therapy cat/humanitarian work? Haha, thank you and Tabs for brightening a difficult week. Best wishes from Boston!

  218. Ashley Reid says:

    Hey Karen and Tabs!!! My favorite blue polish at the moment is Essie’s trophy wife! It’s the perfect blue-green color for spring/summer =] I think my least favorite color eyeshadow to wear is yellow, it just looks odd with my skin color lol

    Have a great weekend!!!!


  219. Roxanne says:

    I intend to go back to school, but not for my lifelong passion. Most likely I’m going into nursing, but if money and time were not an issue, I’d pursue my dream job: become a paleontologist!

  247. Sara says:

  248. Yelena says:

  252. Sharon S says:

    My least favorite eyeshadow color is blue; looks great on other people, though.

  253. Leah says:

    This movie was in NO WAY known for its make up, but there was a really gorgeous smokey eye on one of the Bond girls in Skyfall. (And I felt like a huge dork for noticing it haha.)

  254. Yogirl says:

    My favorite blue nail polish is Chanel Blue Rebel. Happy weekend!

  255. Chanelle (C.M.) says:

    Favorite blue polish? Sinful Colors endless blue.

  256. Kayla S. says:

    I’m a huge sf/fantasy nerd (my parents actually met at a science fiction convention, so I was doomed from the start). I just finished “The Year of the Flood” by Margaret Atwood, which is an amazing book and an excellent followup to “Oryx and Crake.” I probably shouldn’t have read it right after reading “The Road” by Cormac McCarthy, though…hopefully the Nars blush in Sex Appeal that’s in the mail to me will get my mind off the impending apocalypse.

  257. Lexi says:

    My fave green n/p at the moment is the Flower Beauty polish in Thistle or That. I get a lot of compliments on this and it wears very well.

  258. Nora says:

    Have a great weekend everyone!

  259. Claire says:

    I’d study child psychology and early education!

  260. Nicky says:

  261. Debbie says:

    Least favorite eye color is pink – makes me look sickly!

  262. sevenoctobers says:

    If there’s a movie that exemplifies the power of makeup, it would be “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.” Just look at the way Rooney Mara’s character shifts from “anti-establishment” to “It Girl” and back. ’nuff said. πŸ™‚

  263. Cassie says:

    I am light skin with yellow and olive undertones which makes finding a foundation color a nightmare… Most foundations are not yellow enough…ugh!

  264. sevenoctobers says:

    Green + blue nail polish = fall French manicure. Revlon’s Fashionista or Chanel’s Blue Rebel as base and Revlon’s Emerald or OPI’s Jade is the New Black on the tips. I <3 this Malachite look on my nails.

  265. Mysak says:

    I am blonde with green eyes and I look so stupid with blue eyeshadow, used to wear it when I was 11… Ugh, still don’t get why my mum let me go to school looking like that.

  266. mn says:

    So happy to see sings of Spring.

  267. Pamela says:

    I’m intrigued by the orange lip colour trend at the moment but am too scared to try it out myself!

  268. Liz says:

    I have trouble wearing warm toned eyeshadows – yellow, orange, red, that sort of thing. I end up looking like there’s a fading bruise or like I have the flu. Bummer to lose half the color spectrum like that!

  269. Missy M says:

    The Fifth Element!

  270. Amanda Sakovitz says:

    My skin is warm toned!

  271. Daniella says:

    One of my recent favorite sf films is Prometheus.
    If I could go back to school with all expenses paid I would study Art History..

  272. Anna says:

    If I could go back to school I would study either history, music, or art. Or since money isn’t an issue I could just study all three πŸ™‚

  273. irini says:

  278. Valerie says:

    Since my makeup obsession started, when watching movies or any TV show, the first thing I do is checkout and analyze their makeup and how it was done. And I enjoy it! I love checking out makeups of ladies from American Idol and America’s Next Top Model.

    Not a movie, but I loooove Stargate: SG-1. It ran for 10 seasons and got better with each, which is really cool because I find long-running shows tend to slacken after the first few seasons. Except this, and Breaking Bad. Ahhh, I miss Breaking Bad!

    I don’t like blue, but I’ve been dying to try OCC Blackboard nail polish – it seems like a perfect blackened/dusty dark green.

    My skin tone is almost totally neutral, just leaning *slightly* warm. My dad is German and very very cool/pink, and my mom is Mexican and very warm/olive, and I got something just about right in the middle. It’s great for lipstick and eye makeup since most colors don’t go too cool/warm on me, but it’s impossible to find foundation!

  296. Jenny D says:

    New GOT tonight, yay! I’m always curious to see what they’ll squish into one episode and what will just get cut.

    Fav sci-fi series is definitely Star Trek TNG. I love the message of striving for peaceful coexistence with other cultures, it always makes me feel a little bit better about humanity!

    Hi Karen-

    Beautiful and warm day over here in CoCo County. If I could go back to school without having to worry about money I’d be a research doctor or a “House-like diagnostician” (not as cranky, though). Would love to work at the CDC on disease outbreak origins or maybe be a research pharacologist. Or work with Level 4 contageous diseases. I enjoy figuring things out.


  324. Hi Karen,
    I was to a picnic today!
    Thank you.

  325. Monika says:

    Just discovered nailprimer from orly. Looooove it. Even manicures from now on! Yeeeeee!

  326. I was tickled to see the May Preview & QVC TSV in the last week for Bare Minerals!

  327. Rachel says:

    Hi Karen! Glad to hear you’re having a great weekend. Mine has consisted of cleaning and trying to put bright colored claw covers on my cats. Unfortunately, one of them doesn’t like her kitty manicure. I think the Kelly green shade is lovely with her tuxedo colors, but she may prefer a classic red.

    I’m also hitting up a CCO tomorrow and making notes of what I want to look for. Particularly, items from past MAC collections (like, say, maybe a lone Marilyn lipstick or beauty powder?) and Estée Lauder’s Violet Underground palette.

  328. Jody says:

    I can’t wait for the new Dior summer collection – the colors are so beautiful.

  335. ali says:

    love makeup!

  336. janey says:

    My fave green nail polish is Butter LONDON’s British Racing Green. Looks good both with/without a tan on my tootsies!

  337. Mai says:

    I think my least favorite eyeshadow color is pink! There’s just something about the color that I think isn’t as flattering on me.

    I saw Oblivion at a special screening Tuesday. They had a video chat with Tom & the writer afterwards. The reason tings didn’t look too CGI was because it wasn’t. They filmed the cloud scenes at the Antarctic with some special camera they literally got straight off the production line. Anyway I liked the movie and was willing to overlook how much “borrowing” was done from other sci fi movies.

    PS. I should introduce Tabs to my kitty Stormaggedon: The Oncoming Fury aka Stormie

    I am almost done with this semester of school!:)

    I am not ready for the coming summer heat. As I get older, I find heat bothering me SOOOO much.

  342. Sherry says:

    Well well…..I am sitting on a dock with CeraVe sunscreen on waiting on a fishing hubby and really wishing I was shopping at Sephora! Next best thing? Reading your blog πŸ™‚

  343. Juliana Benavides says:

    I love makeup but don’t know why I can’t do it with blue, whether on my nails or my eyes I just don’t feel the color blue in all the shades.

  348. Germaine Sikat says:

    I love and like your blogs!!

  349. Patricia H. says:

    Hi Karen,
    I want to see Oblivion also. I still haven’t seen Jack Reacher though! Anyhow here’s to hoping I win the gift card. Give my love to Tabs.

  350. Jennifer says:

    I have been reading this blog for YEARS! It has guided me though many a makeup question, and has inspired me to begin writing my own blog. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!

  351. Lauren k k says:

    Hi Karen! I love tabs the cat!

  352. Shannon H. says:

    I just had the most delicious turkey sandwich. Happy Sunday to you and Tabs!

  353. Esther says:

    not a film or book, but does Doctor Who count as sci-fi? because good holy everything, that show is amazing.

  354. Alexis says:

    I just ordered the Beauty Blender and I really hope it lives up to the hype! I’m obsessing over the Dior bronzer/blush that you posted about a few days ago, though. I can’t wait to see it in person!

  355. BB says:

    My skin is warm toned–I think! Green veins are the indicator right?

  356. stacy says:

    My husband never notices my makeup which is maybe a good thing.

  357. Jackie says:

    If I could travel to any planet and not have its outerspace effects affect me I would go to Pluto because I feel bad for it since its planet status got taken away. It must be lonely out there all on its own!

  358. steph b says:

    If I could go to school tuition free and living expenses paid for, I’d go to law school.

  359. Allie F says:

    I’ve never really understood red eyeshadow. At least no on my pale face!

  360. TheGlamorousNomad says:

    Favorite sci fi book is Lilith’s Brood by Octavia Butler! Favorite lipgloss is Jaipur, one of the Chanel Glossimers πŸ™‚

  361. Jordanna says:

    Love your blog! Always evolving and keeping it fresh creatively.

  362. Jess says:

    Growing up, I LOVED the makeup on Buffy The Vampire Slayer — humans and monsters alike! Definitely what got me into makeup from the very beginning πŸ˜€

  363. Let says:

    My least favorite eye makeup (especially eye shadow) color is purple. Not because I can’t wear it but because people overhyped it– all while saying blues shouldn’t be worn.

  364. I love lipsticks and eyeliner. I cant step outside without those two items.

  365. christine says:

    Pink shadow is majorly unflattering on me.

  366. Katrina says:

    Funnily enough, pink eyeshadow is a colour I can pull off. Just keep all yellows far far away from me!

  367. Susan says:

    Least favorite eye shadow color is burgundy, which looks like a bloody bruise….guess it’d be my go-to for the Zombie Apocalypse!

  368. Maia says:

    Hi I’m a new follower of your blog & I love it. It’s so helpful ! πŸ™‚ thanks so much!

  369. Irene says:

    If I could go back to school I would love to become a microbiologist.

  370. Ashley says:

    Just got home from a crawfish boil!

  371. brittany says:

    ooooh la la!!

  372. MORGAN DEAN says:


  373. Elin LLB says:

    I can never really tell if my skin is warm toned or cool toned. Isn’t there a happy medium?

  374. Sadhana says:

    I love Tom Cruise, and I love all of his sci-fi movies! “The Tom Cruise Run” is definitely a thing – they’ve mentioned it on Cougar Town a few times, haha. He’s the best action-runner.

  375. Sarah W says:

    I’m trying to expand my horizons, but I cannot do blue eyeshadow in a way I like!

  376. alexa says:

    Ohhh!!! I would love, love, love, LOVE to win this!! I have my eye on some stila stuff…. But also some Benefit things too… Basically, I want highlighters! I love the dewy look! πŸ˜‰

  377. I’m obssesed with nail polish and RuPaul’s Drag Race.

  378. Melissa says:

    Best lazy day ever

  379. Amy says:

    So I’m wearing Orly’s Halley’s Comet and I. Can’t. Stop. Looking. At. My. Nails………..

  380. Tovah says:

    Illamasqua is my new favorite line of cosmetics. Everything is great, except the containers, which are really cheap. Great colors though!

  381. Marisa says:

    I would go back and major in what I already did (criminal justice with a focus in victim’s studies) but I would minor in Spanish and I would have wanted to do a semester abroad.

  382. Tatyana G says:

    I can never pull off a pink or red eye shadow. Hope you had a great weekend.

  383. Joanne H says:

    Lord of the rings trilogy is my fave sci fi.

  384. CL says:

    Still trying out my several blue polishes, but my favorite blue-green (very close to Tiffany blue) is Essie’s Where’s My Chauffeur?

  385. Taylor says:

    one day, I’m going to buy a coral eyeshadow and rock it so hard. until that day, I’ll just be here. wearing it on my lips like a boring person.

  386. Rebecca Song says:

    OMG! Where do I begin – going through high school with a lot of acne, I always thought my skin was cool-toned (because of the redness), and being broke in college all the time meant I paid little attention to my skin and what foundation I was using. As I got back into higher end makeup, I started realizing that I might be actually warm in my undertone but I just went into Sephora last night, and the makeup artist colormatched me as a neutral! haha go figure.

  387. Anna says:

    Watched Oz the Great and Powerful last week and could not stop fawning over Theodora’s makeup! I LOVE IT SO MUCH. And also Mila Kunis <3333

  388. Dijana says:

    Ive actually never been to a spa! Never really felt like doing the body treatment thing (massages, skin treatments, etc) and my skin is so sensitive (breaks out to absolutely everything) that I was always terrified of what all those scented products and procedures would cause! haha am I missing out??

  389. I hope this time to have luck, right now the prize will be for skincere not for lemmings.

  390. Jess L says:

    If I could go back to school and not pay a dime I would go back and get my Masters degree in Marriage & Family Therapy after taking the semester off I gave myself permission for (4 years ago) oh how time flies. Lol. πŸ™‚

  391. Christy says:

    I’m really excited for the Tarte Aqualillies face pallete!

  392. Ruth says:

    my fav sc-fi series is the dresden files-Jim Butcher/ it’s like Harry Potter grew up and opened his own business

  393. Marija says:

    Happy Monday everyone!Have a nice week!

  394. Colleen says:

    Sci-fi…I want to say Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.’s stuff. It was just so different from anyone else’s. Red Dwarf is the funniest sci-fi tv show…I’ve seen only parts of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

    “The first ten million years were the worst,” said Marvin, “and the second ten million years, they were the worst too. The third ten million years I didn’t enjoy at all. After that I went into a bit of a decline.”

    Have a nice rest-of-the-weekend!

    When I think of SF makeup in movies, I think of the most recent Star Trek movie and the green-skinned girl :>

  396. Mandy says:

    Am i still in time to enter the contest? I’m from the Netherlands, so i’m in a different time zone (i’m from the future…kind of…hahaha…sounds very SciFi!) I love it when my husband gives me a compliment on my makeup πŸ™‚

    Loving this beautiful weather up in the bay!
