Two Ways to Win a Sephora eCard on Mak


Good mornin’! πŸ™‚ Yup, it’s that time again. Time for another brunch with Ryan — I mean, another Saturday giveaway.

Today’s specialty: the Sephora salad.

All it takes to enter is a comment on this post and/or a Twitter tweet (full details down below). Good luck, and have a wonderful weekend.

I’m gonna go get some food in my rumbly tum now. See you soon.

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!”

    KAREN! I’m sipping a virgin mango mojito at work ninja style (from my coffee mug) having a ball tapping into the make up world on your website. Swear its making me anticipate summer even more! Hm I’m starting to think you love summer more than I do, sure makes me feel like the weekend is going to be that much better!

  2. Karla says:

    Iron man 3 was a bit of a disappointment πŸ™

  3. Vanessa says:

    Blue things???? Gaaah, I stopped at 47, I’m not going to turn my head so I don’t have to see more! I was in the wrong room to answer this question… haha

  4. GUSnail says:

    I take my makeup off before bed every night. It took some time to make it a habit, bit now it’s second nature.

  5. mini says:

    Currently loving Laura Mercier powder spf 15!

  6. Agata says:

    Hi Karen, happy weekend. The only blue thing I can see sitting at my desk is my coffee cup. It’s hand painted and it’s from Poland πŸ™‚ I’m not wearing anything on my nails right now, I just removed my gel nail polish. I think I am going to use my new Givenchy polish next!

  7. Joanne E. says:

    Rockin’ the bare nail look today!

  8. April says:

    I’m currently wearing Butter London Macbeth on my fingers but Butter London Lovely Jubbly on my ring fingers. Fun combination!

  9. Sopeab says:

    Currently have on Essie mojito madness on my nails and LOVE it!

  10. Lisa Brown says:

    I always remove my makeup before bedtime.

  11. Amanpreet says:

    I’m giving my nails a break from nail polish today πŸ™‚

  12. Jenna says:

    I did not take off my makeup last night. I have a sick little kitty and I was pooped by 8:30 and was like… nope too much work. Wooo friday nights!

  13. Shana says:

    Hilariously, I’m watching a wedding show with bridesmaids in blue dresses, so I see A LOT of blue.

  14. Shelly says:

    I already follow you on the Twitters but I retweeted and I’m leaving a comment because I’m an overachiever like that! Err, sometimes as I did not remove my makeups last night and I scraped off my pinkie nude Zoya polish. However, I shall repent to the beauty gods today!

  15. Sunny says:

    I have Chanel Azure on my nails right now! I get so distracted by the duochrome effect!

  16. Nisa says:

    I had a busy weekend. Since my maid’s away, I need to do chores and help out my mom who’s broken her leg and is confined in a wheelchair. I don’t mind the chores though, I enjoy doing them. Had no time to eat properly but thank God that it’s my sis’ birthday! Somehow we got her three cakes! D8 that’s a lot of fat!

    It was yummy though~

  17. Lila Z says:

    I broke my foot about a week ago and I can’t get upstairs to my vanity and all my makeup (or stand long enough in front of a mirror to put it on) πŸ™ I’ve been missing it all so much so I’ve become obsessed about reading as much as I can about new brands and techniques and I can’t wait until I can walk & drive again to load up on some of glorious new products I’ve been reading about and get back to my lovely collection of make up. Thanks for being such an entertaining & informative read!

  18. Ellen says:

    I just ate peanut butter yogurt out of a blue cup! Other than that…my sneakers and my husband’s bike. Our living room is mostly red and brown shades πŸ™‚

    • Alix says:

      Peanut butter yogurt?? That sounds delish! What brand?

      • Sandy says:

        Personally, I don’t know what brand she is eating, since I am just jumping in here uninvited (sorry!), but you could mix freshly ground pb with plain greek yogurt and have a nice treat. I would do that if I could eat yogurt (lactose is not my friend =((
        sounds good!

        • Ellen says:

          Lactose isn’t really my friend either, but I find that yogurt is better because of the probiotics. Have you tried any of the soy or other non-dairy yogurts? They scare me a little bit…

      • Ellen says:

        No brand – Sandy’s right, I just mix peanut butter into regular or Greek yogurt! It’s amazing. It started when my husband and I were in Iceland, and the yogurt is crazy cheap there so he ate a lot of yogurt + peanut butter + chocolate chips + oatmeal (the last three ingredients were for pb/choco chip/oatmeal cookies), and I simplified it down to pb + yogurt. Try it! It’s amazing!

  19. Joy says:

    Assuming by treasured you mean physical and non-living…that’s a hard one. In a fire I’d grab my external hard drive since it has all my pictures and family history and such on it. But that’s a hard question otherwise. I suppose the ring my mom and dad gave me for my sixteenth birthday? I have this weird thing where I really treasure a lot but I use the items all the time. And if they do get broken or damaged, I’m not upset exactly because I have tons of memories associated with them. So sad, yes, but not regretful either.

  20. Justine says:

    The kid in Iron Man 3 was great!

  21. Stephanie says:

    This is awesome πŸ™‚

  22. So in! ANd I already know what I’d buy with it πŸ˜€ I’ve read a great review about a Cover FX primer and I’d love to try it out.

    Thanks for the giveaway, Karen! X

  24. Tiffanie says:

    My most treasured belonging is my wedding ring. It’s has my grandmother’s original wedding band attached, so it’s special for multiple reasons.

  76. Sherry says:

    Hi Karen!! I’m new to your blog, but I’m so enjoying it!! I feel like I’m learning something new every day. Anyway, I did remove my makeup last night, because I had a lot on. I’ve been on a quest for a good under eye concealer, so I thought I’d try Nars. They ended up putting not just concealer on me, but tinted moisturizer, bronzer, and blush!! Woo Hoo…that was fun!! Still not sure if I got the right concealer as far as the color match… it might be too dark. I’m looking for something to brighten my under eye area. I might see if I can get a better match at MAC…we shall see. By the way, thanks for having the Sephora giveaway!! Love that place!!

    I’m currently wearing base coat on my nails – just choosing the color now.

On my fingers I have a coat of Loreal Creme De Mint, over a coat of WnW Fastdry Emerald The Crown Jewel glitter, over a couple of coats of Sinful Pistache making a glitter-jelly sandwich on my nails. Super pretty and it coordinates well with Wednesday.

  82. Isabella says:

    I have a huge crush on my guy friend and it’s so hard because we’re complete opposites. He’s a total extrovert and I’m definitely an introvert; we’re from two different worlds. Besides, I think I was friend-zoned by him from the start. *long sigh*

  111. Alison says:

    Of course I took my makeup off before bed last night!

    I’m very good at taking my makeup off before bed – my skin is very sensitive and finicky, so I have to be serious about taking care of it!

    My fingernails are bare, as always, but my toes are a glittery red jelly finish LE polish from Revlon Summer 2011 called Watermelon Fizz. I have backup bottles of this because it’s the best color ever.

  116. Step says:

    I always take my makeup off before bed or I don’t feel right.

  117. Cindi says:

    I follow you on Twitter…
    “Tweet” ~
    Again, many thanks!

  118. Lisa says:

    Love your blog Karen. I’m currently wearing Chanel’s May on my nails but after seeing your post on Chanel’s Bel Argus, I’m very tempted to go down to my local Bloomingdale’s to pick up a bottle.

    Could you do a post on Dior’s spring colors? The Rosy Bow, Spring Ball and Princess all look so sweet!

  119. Ivy says:

    Hey Karen! Your blog is so awesome! I don’t go a week without reading it! What is your favorite part of your makeup routine? Summer is around the corner! Meaning I can go shopping for my favorite summer products soon! Yay!

    Right now, I see three blue things: a pair of socks, the ceiling, and dolce and gabbana light blue perfume.

  121. Mandy Sark says:

    I am totally procrastinating the closet clean outs I have to complete by Thursday when the installers come to put in our new floors.

    My dusty green nail polish is starting to chip. Looking forward to finding the time to repaint!

  129. Jesselyn says:

    I’m sick πŸ™

  130. Sarah Bordelon says:

    Hey Karen and Tabs and Ryan!
    Unfortunately, I am not wearing anything on my nails since I have starting biting them. πŸ™ Sad, I know. All the stress of trying to get into a performing arts high school (for makeup, no less) must be getting to me. Le sigh! In other news, I did take my makeup off before bed last night. So good for me! Also, I did pretend I could speak Spanish and chat with a local when I went to Mexico about 8 years ago. Does that count as a heart to heart? Haha. Have a magical day!!! πŸ™‚

  131. Jessica J says:

    i always take my makeup off before bed!

  132. Amanda Sakovitz says:

    Yes I’ve had heart to hearts with complete strangers. I find it fascinating and I love talking to different people

  133. Solangel says:

    I see about five different blue things right now on my desk, which is a bit weird…

  134. Jessica says:

    Im looking forward to my yearly pedicure! That picture of Gosling is swoon worthy! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  135. Karrie Price says:

    Just got some goodies at Sephora!!

  136. Jenny D says:

    I went back to blonde (i.e. my real colour) – I look so much younger! Weird!

  137. Susan says:

    My kitty looks just like Tabs and also loves gravy. I’m not sure if he’s a fan of Ridin’ Dirty or not. I guess I’ll have to play it for him one of these days… πŸ˜‰

  138. Christina says:

    I am actually very good about removing my makeup at night before bed. I am always afraid I will get a sty or something if I don’t!

    On my nails is Sephora by OPI polish. The name of the color has worn off but it’s a dupe of OPI’s Deer Valley Spice.

  140. Jenn says:

    ALWAYS gotta take your makeup off at night πŸ™‚

  141. Letizia says:

    I am holding on to my new fringe-free status…but it’s very challenging πŸ™‚

  142. steph b says:

    Just took off my polish this morning, so bare nails. Except for a bit of soil since I just finished some balcony container gardening.

  143. Claire says:

    I am 28, and have been a student continuously since age 5 (yikes!). With any luck, in the next 5 years I will be a real adult!

  144. Susan says:

    I’m currently wearing Revlon’s ‘bare bones’ nail polish. It’s very… beige! I think I like it but I’m not sure yet. Least it’s different to my usual pale pink πŸ™‚

  145. laura says:

    I just cut my hair today! it’s quite short, sort of like a lob, and I’m still trying to get used to it…

    Hi Karen! The Goslinator looked so yummy. If a waiter serving you is that hot, would you be able to eat?

  147. Megan says:

    I don’t have any polish on my nails right now, but I might paint them later tonight! I’m thinking maybe a gold color.

  148. TrippyPixie says:

    I always remove my makeup and wash my face before I go to bed, otherwise I’ll break out.

  149. leetal says:

    bought a couple of new essie polishes today i’m so excited to wear them!!

  150. Stephanie Smith says:

    I am giving my nails a break from nail polish for a little while. I have kept them painted at all times for the last 20 years, I need a little break.

  151. Nicolle says:

    I have an essie wine color nail polish with revlon matte top coat.

  156. Kayla S. says:

    I spent the day with some friends and tried out a moderately dramatic purple eye look, which I think was a success.

  157. Elyse says:

    I just cam back from a 5 hour local home and garden tour sponsored by a neighborhood charity. My friend and I are exhausted. We do not look like our usual vibrant selves, thus we need that Sephora card! BTW very few nice gardens this year, and too many elite architectural “monster mansions” that actually look like prisons.

  158. blkrox says:

    Most treasured possession – picture of my best friend at his graduation. Distant second, my “Inday” necklace.

  159. christine says:

    Yes, I removed my makeup last night. I’m good about that 99% of the time.

  160. Kirsten H. says:

    I did remove my make up before bed last night! It was hard to ignore since it was so hot and I was sweating so much. Bleh!

  161. helena m Wann says:

    Is this the blog4Sephora giveaway? Hope so& thanx

  162. Yes I definitely removed my makeup before bed last night–I make sure to do that every single night no matter what. I was actually quite proud of myself a few weeks ago–I went out partying with some friends for my birthday and came home pretty tipsy πŸ˜› I had a sudden urge to crawl into bed without washing my face but I forced myself to do it and felt much, much better after. I figured “haven’t done it in years and I’m not gonna start now” πŸ˜›

    I don’t have too many blue things in this area of the apartment. Nine blue books on the bookshelf, a Subway soda cup on the coffee table, a small plastic watering can on a side table, a mirror with a blue painted wood frame, and a small glass planter. My favorite blue cosmetic item is definitely my Urban Decay eye shadow in Radium, which I love to wear on nights out.

  237. Elsa says:

    Hi Karen and Tabs πŸ™‚
    I see 3 blue things…my sky blue glass (sipping strawberry/kiwi juice), a bottle of nail polish Chanel Bel Argus and my fleece VS hoodie in turquoise blue.
    Today my makeup was very simple. My Rachel K CC Cream, Illamasqua blush in Thrust and YSL Volupte Shine in 19 Fuschia in Rage. Nail polish I’m wearing today is Dior’s Princess. I always try to remove my makeup well before bed.
    I was never involved in a scandal. And yes, I have had quite a few heart to heart with strangers. It happens that people are just lonely, having a bad day and, need to vent and maybe I seem like a good listener. I don’t mind at all. I find it that at times it is easier to open up with a stranger than with the people around you.
    Hope you guys are having a wonderful weekend. xo, Elsa

    The most important blue thing I see is a beautiful blue sky here in Belgium. I’m enjoying it too much to count any other blue things.

  303. Ashley says:

    I’ve had exams all week and had to move out of my apartment so I haven’t worn makeup in a few days. Good news, nothing to wash off at night. Bad news, I’m going through serious make up withdrawals. My new urban decay ammo palette just came in though so in excited to play with that later today! πŸ˜€

  304. Mei says:

    Hiya Karen! Happy Cinco de Mayo!!! Hope your weekend has been a blast! how’s lil Tabby today? I’m gonna guess diva-ish! hahaha!
    My most treasured belonging is probably the necklace my mom gave me for the sixteenth birthday. You know Asian parents don’t really celebrate birthdays…so that necklace means a lot! I’m currently in a coffee shop, so I see a lot of blue shirts! Funny thing about this coffee shop…it’s very “local” lol. I’ve never been to one like it! Yes, OF COURSE I’ve had a heart-to-heart with a total stranger. I live for those moments! I believe in life is a collection of memories, and those little moments do count. I may not remember all of them, but I’ll never forget how they make me feel!! Oh great…you’re asking me about my “five year plan”…does anyone actually have those? I don’t see myself doing anything specific in five years…or be anywhere specific. I’m in my twenties, so everything is uncertain. It kinda drives me nuts, but it’s a learning moment for sure!! YES I REMOVED MY MAKEUP BEFORE BED LAST NIGHT. Haha, I’m not a beginner! I hate absolutely HATE sleeping with my makeup on. I WILL get a zit the next morning, no doubt. I currently don’t have anything on my nails bc I just moved, and don’t have my own place yet, so I have yet to build my nail polish collection! And not to mention I hate having my nails painted…I’m such a perfectionist when it comes to it. ONE CHIP, and all the other nails come off. I’m not crazy, promise πŸ™‚

  305. Caitlin says:

    I’m wearing Revlon’s plum seduction on my toenails. Very bright and springy!!! πŸ™‚

  306. Anisa says:
