Win a $50 Sephora eGift card from Makeup and Beauty Blog

Good morning, young lady. How did you sleep? I’ve only just come downstairs from bed, and Tabs, who’s always pretty talkative and excited first thing in the morning, is zigzagging between my legs, giving me kitty hugs. It’s really quite precious.


Whoa! — I just had the coolest memory pop into my head of one of those old Folgers coffee commercials. The ones with that great jingle: “The best part of waking up, is Folgers in your cuuuuup.”

I swear, I can actually smell coffee right now after hearing a jingle! It’s fascinating.

Anywho, what’s on your plate for today? I hope you have something fun lined up. The Cargo stuff we looked at yesterday got me thinking about fun makeup and how much I appreciate when companies come up with cool themes and stories for their products.

MAC is always great about it. Their collections are so distinct and have so much personality — I LOVE that kind of thing. It’s just more fun for me than generic themes like COMPANY Z SPRING 2011 COLOR NO. 458.

I don’t know… I like it when makeup is about more than painting colors and pictures on our outsides, ya know? It can also be about painting pictures in our minds (ooh! trippy).

Which brings me to the topic of this morning’s post — Sephora, a great source of both good and bad examples of themed makeup.

If you haven’t already guessed, it’s giveaway time. πŸ™‚

    My favorite collection was MAC’s Venomous Villains. I didn’t get a chance to partake while it was available, so I’m hoping I’ll see it at my CCO sometime. Thanks for the giveaway!

  15. Eileen says:

    Yesterday I had an evening look done by a visiting Armani MA. He used the Spring 2011 collection called La Femme Bleue. Although the lipstick and blush are better suited to light to light/medium complexions, the eye shadow quad would look gorgeous on anyone who likes a bit of color. It would look stunning on you, Karen.

    I love the way make up, bodycare, skincare and haircare products make me feel. I love perfume!!!!!!!!! It makes me feel very girly, and the scents are intoxicating!!! I love when I greet some of my good friends, and they tell me, how awesome I smell, or how beautiful I am. I really loved it on my wedding day, when my wedding party, wanted me to do their make up. I had to tutor them, since it was my big day. I love it, that I still have longtime friends from childhood. They are so good!!!!!! I love my massage therapist and good friend. She rocks!!!!! And, I don’t know how she does so many things in 1 day, she’s an amazing woman!!!!!!!! I love my dog and husband, and Mom and Dad, and family. My dog is so crazy, I love when summer comes to us, and my dog swims next to me, in the pool! I love when she races for her balls and fetches them out of the pool. I love going on vacation with my husband, when we could just go, and turn the rest of the world off. I love swimming in the ocean with the fish, and sea turtles and chasing the roosters around, on Kauai!!!!

All I need is the rest of my regular order!

    When I need to unwind, I put on my headphones and go for a walk. I live near a nice walking trail – in one direction, it goes past a pond that’s “home” to ducks, some Canadian geese, and some herons (and at the end of that leg of the trail is a coffee shop. How convenient!!)

  240. Jenn says:

    I recently picked up one of the new Burts Bees tinted lip balms (in red dahlia) and LOVE it! It goes on super-smooth, feels great, has a reasonable half life, a tint of color and is NON-MINTY! It really reminds me of the (MUCH more pricey) Fresh lipbalms, but I can’t say it’s a dupe for sure b/c I don’t own a Fresh product.

Got the new Wet n Wild MegaLash Clinical Serum, which I can’t wait to try, SH Maximum Growth for cheap (seems to be working on my nails & Ji Baek recommended it), 11 new polishes for all for under $20 (although the mini Orly was overpriced, but it was the Xmas green & I had to have it), and Orajel for making tweezing less ouchy. I also got a Revlon lipstick & one of their new glosses, both in shades of pink, but I tried them in the car & returned them in about 5 minutes. Colors were bad on me, the quality was meh, and the prices were yikes.

    Thanks for the great giveaway, guys. I’d probably put it towards finding the perfect pink lippie combo for me.

I also found a good shade of red for my lips in the form of Korres Lip Glaze in Wild Rose. Overall, a productive trip! haha

So far I’ve only gone through the lip glosses, and I’ve weeded out about 15 of them that are so close to other ones I have that it’s stupid to own them both. The really scary part’s going to be going through my ~400 eyeshadows and weeding out all the dupes. Yikes. I have a problem…

    I had a horrible weekend. I planned to go on an internship in California, and I was also planning on buying some stuff at sephora (such as Nars Orgasm, And Bobbi Brown Corrector) as we don’t have it anywhere near here in the Netherlands. But as it turned out, my intership was cancelled and now I am really upset.

  474. Angela says:

    Currently using Stila’s version, but I’m dying to try the gel liner from Bobbi Brown!
    I’ve seen so many youtube gurus use it, so I might give it a test drive soon :).

    • Winterbloom says:

      BB gel liners are my faves :), they have such a great range of very wearable shades. I tried the Stila ones when they first came out and was a bit disappointed about their texture which seemed quite dry from the start. But couple of months ago I tried Stila’s liners again and they must have done something to the formula, because now they are very very creamy but still pigmented.

  532. Lara says:

    I’m in love with Revlon ColorStay foundation.

    It’s kinda expensive in Spain (around 17Γ’β€šΒ¬), but soooo worth it!

    I’m not watching the NFL playoffs today. It makes me feel slightly out of the loop, though. On the bright side, the grocery stores will be totally empty by the time the Jets play.

    Nice giveaway- I think gift cards to Sephora are one of my favorite gifts to get, lol!!
    Also, I agree with you about themes and stories behind makeup collections. I like MAC color stories and I like when companies name products rather than number them as well.

  586. McClain says:

    great giveaway! i totally agree with you on the themed, fun makeup collections πŸ™‚

  587. Catherine says:

    I definitely like shopping on the Sephora website more than I do in-store if I already know what I want. In the stores, the employees follow you around like….it’s like they’re dogs and you have a biscuit in your pocket. It’s quite annoying. ‘Do you need help with anything?’ ‘No thank you, I’m just browsing.’…..5 minutes later…..”Did you need help with that?”
    Anyway, great giveaway.
