A Makeup and Beauty Blog Giveaway!

Well, it looks like we’ve gotten a brief respite from the rain this morning, yay! Shoot, I think I even see patches of blue in the sky. Of course, my office still feels like a dark, cold cave, but at least the freezing rains have stopped.


What’s the weather like over there? I hope not too rough. Are you hunkered down at home or out and about?

That reminds me, why do morning TV news shows always send reporters out into storms just to report back that there is, in fact, a storm? “Jane! Quick, get over to the Target parking lot, and get me some footage of the [INSERT INCLEMENT WEATHER HERE]!” And it’s usually a woman, and she’s usually in heels.


Haha! No, I don’t think I’ll be giving that a try…

And you shouldn’t either. Better to stay indoors where it’s safe and warm, and where you can enter giveaways like this one here for a gift card from Sephora. πŸ™‚

    Greetings and salutations from L.A. Woke up this morning to the sound of rain dreading having to go to the car dealer for a foreign sound in my engine.

    If id say i love love spring! its the time to slowly un-layer my clothes! lol its not too cold nor too warm (though spring in Chicago is very very unpredictable).

  73. DalaLuz says:

    It’s very rainy, wet and cold over here, I find myself thinking ‘There’s no pace like home, there’s no place like home’ as I hear the wind tugging on all our doors and windows. I like warm weather, but not too warm: pretty blue sky, toss in a couple of nice white fluffy clouds, perhaps a gentle breeze, the smell of roses. a cool drink…

  74. Kate says:

    Snowing here in Boston, makes everything very pretty. Totally wrecking my skin, just on my body, really dry. My very oily face, on the other hand, looks amazing!

  85. LuvJaime says:

    I was quite surprised to hear the pitter-patter on my roof this morning. SoCal has been having a super confused weather system. Last week felt like the first day of summer then temps drop by 20 by the late afternoon. I don’t mind seeing snow though.. who knows.. maybe next week.

  86. Lindsey says:

  142. Jessica says:

    I don’t know if I can even COUNT how many skincare products I use a day! I’m very dry skinned and I live in a cold, snowy place so constant moisturizing is imperative. If you count various lip balms I’d say 8-10. My goodness that’s a lot!

    I’m currently in the middle of a snow storm and feeling pretty gloomy! It’s yucky over here in Massachusetts. I wish I could have some of your california rays! πŸ™‚

    I use about 8 skincare products daily. I know it sounds insane but I really do believe prevention and sun protection – even in the snow! I am really hoping I can snag this gift card so I can spend something on me.. pretty drained from Christmas still!

Good face mask: Almond and Mineral Treatment by Eminence – I apply this twice a week for about 5 minutes while I’m showering. Leaves my skin all glowy and smooth.

    Well, as being from Florida, it is so incredibly nice when the weather is breezy and you can take nice, long walk down the beach or in your neighborhood with your puppy. I love sitting outside when it’s that weather, so then you can read a book or eat your scrumptious breakfast. My current lipgloss crush isn’t a lipgloss, but actually a lip balm. It’s the clinique chunky cherry. It leaves a very pretty red color behind and works with most skin tones and moistures your lips! It is so cute and pretty, I’m just obsessed with it. Although i can’t recommend a good face mask, Nutrogena makes a great face wash that works so well. Its the Grapefruit one. It also smells super yummy. Switched at Birth, New Girl and Modern Family are my favorite TV shows. I started watching Jane by Design, which is pretty good as well. I’d like to be an interior designer when I grow up. I love sephora!

    I am loving my Tarte for True Blood make up collection! The eye shadow palette is sooooooooo gorgeous!!! Great packaging and excellent quality!

This is definitely my all time fave make up! πŸ™‚

  254. TrippyPixie says:

    I absolutely hate the snow and cold. I’m from Chicago, and it’s not fun at all here right now. True, this isn’t the worst winter that we’ve had, but it’s still annoying. The water coming out of our faucets is cold, since the pipes get cold. We also have to brush off the car constantly, and also plow and shovel snow. I love Chicago too much to move somewhere warm, so I just put up with it, which is easy to do since I’ve lived here my whole life. It kind of makes me feel a bit tougher, having to put up with our winters. XD

  255. Quinctia says:

    8 inches of snowwwww. T_T

    And I drive a Dodge Stratus (ES, which is important because it means I have the larger wheels with the thinner tires and end up lower to the ground). So getting home from work last night was about as fun as expected.

    I generally use two skincare products: cleanser and moisturizer.

  256. Jennifer A. says:

    I love MN springs, CA Augusts.

    I love spring weather, where you still need a light coat but it isn’t freezing outside.

  334. Kaoyee says:

    I hope I win!

  335. Mali says:

    I love makeup. But I also love my husband very much, and this gift card would save his wallet. <3

    I am in love with the book eat pray love. If you haven’t read it, don’t like reading, or have already read it… Read it now, or read it again. Love your blog, Karen!

    You have the CUTEST pictures of your cat ever. I don’t know how you edit them, but they’re hilarious!

    I woke up in Atlanta to hail and thunderstorms this am! I like cool fall weather the best.

  340. Christy says:

    My tip for making sticky glosses more comfortable: put it on your (clean) finger first and smooth it on in a thin layer.

  341. Claire Pan says:

    Freezing rain in ohio >.<

  342. Sarah C says:

    My favorite weather is the hot summer weather we have in Atlanta. Just a few more months ’til shorts weather!

  343. Britania says:

    I just moved to San Diego in October – I love the weather we have, but I’m kinda missing the east coast snow.

  344. Helen says:

    I can’t wait till spring! This year I’m actually going to plant flowers!

    Favorite TV shows are Castle, NCIS, Criminal Minds, CSI, Big Bang Theor & Say Yes to the Dress.

  349. Becca says:

    2 of my absolute favorite masks in the world (and that do absolute wonders for my skin) are: Pangea Organics Japanese Matcha Tea with Acai & Goji Berry Mask and my homemade colloidal oatmeal and honey mask (this one is awesome-makes skin soo incredibly soft, firms, and helps bring down any breakouts/zits I have)

  350. BooBooNinja says:

    Karen, are you going to to give the German Nivea a go?

  351. Amber :) says:

  352. laura says:

    I like fall weather, or at least weather that isn’t too hot or freezing.

  353. Amanda Jo says:

    I’m totally obsessed with Fresh’s Umbrian Clay face mask. It’s fantastic for oily/combo skin types. You can use it as a mask (duh!) or as a cleanser which is pretty sweet. Also, during the summer I had one or two bug bites (I’m going to blame Central Park!) and I put a bit on each little red spot and they were practicly gone by the next day. Booyah.

  354. Brittany says:

    It snowed about 10-12 inches here in the past 3 days…and I got my car stuck. Crappy day πŸ™

  355. zMaggie says:

    Being that where I live it’s 15 degrees and we have 5 inches of snow…..I would love to be in the rain of CA instead of here. =)

  356. Kim Cole says:

    Winter has finally arrived in Indy! Lots of snow and freezing rain overnight. Pretty to look at, but dangerous to go out in… Good day to catch up on my fashion mags & prep for the NY Fall 2012 fashion shows coming up in a few weeks!!!

    Tweeted contest (@kimpcole) for addtl entry!

  358. Isis says:

    I love you!

    My favorite weather is 4 seasons like Colorado! I like how it is dry heat in the summer, and how in the winter it gets cold, but then warms up, so you get a break! πŸ™‚

  360. Evelyn says:

    I love warm, sunny, not-too-humid weather. Sadly it is hardly ever like that where I live!

  361. Shelly says:

    I want to be a stylist and/or interior designer when I grow up Thanks for the giveaway Karen! =]

  362. Mireya says:

    My favorite tv show will probably always be Seinfeld.

    Chinese food, Midnight in Paris, and heaps and heaps of snow.

  365. Jess says:

    I love winter and the snow!!

  366. Tina says:

    I actually just figured out what I want to be when I grow up. I’m finally in a position to be able to go to school full-time for respiratory therapy. If all goes well, I should graduate in May 2013.

  367. GenesisCal says:

    I want to try some NARS! Happy weekend

    Holla! I prefer spring weather except I have allergies and I live in Kansas and that can mean tornadoes so hmmm…..

  372. Amy says:

    I love moderate weather, like 70 degrees. I live in Wisconsin, so that’s not something that happens too often.

  373. Stephanie says:

    I want to be a writer when I grow up. And by “grow up”, I mean “get all these kids in school so I have time to actually do something other than pick up toys and change diapers”.

  374. Abby says:

    I like the autumn weather, the colors are so pretty.

  375. sasha says:

    i love chocolate! I need it everyday πŸ™‚

  376. Vanessa says:

    I love a nice so cal day…if it were 76-80 degrees all the time I would be one happy camper. I also love really dry, hot summers when I’m by the pool πŸ™‚ Hate, hate, hate the cold!

  381. Erin says:

    MAC lipglass in Knockout!

  382. Paola says:

    My fav show right now is New Girl. I just love a good comedy show. Also i love the snow but where I live it becomes slushy and dirty, and then I don’t like it any more.

    My new makeup mission in life is to own all of the MUF aqua liners.

  402. Carol says:

    I’ve fallen out of love with lipglosses. Love the shine but hate the thickness and/or stickiness. Instead of lipglosses I’ve been using a lot of glossy lipsticks lately.

  403. RM says:

    my fave new skincare item is the fade peel from it’s lightening my melasma and clearing up blackheads!

  407. Clara N. says:

    I like the TV show, Switched at Birth right now πŸ™‚

  408. Manu A says:

    My favorite TV shows are Vampire Diaries ,House and Modern Family. The actors on Vampire Diaries are so good looking or maybe its due to their makeup artists πŸ˜‰ Since I have been studying for exams lately I haven’t been wearing makeup much lately, but do use Shiseido balancing softner and Clinique superdefense 25 everyday !

  409. sondra c. says:

    I love cold (snowy) and dry weather.

  410. eight says:

    Cold, snowy, typical for Canada this time of year πŸ˜‰


    Thanks so much!

  411. Step says:

    Always been a fan of Nars Gothika, though I haven’t been glossing lately.

  412. Jen says:

    I love dry, consistant heat. Too bad the current weather in UT is like being inside a slurpee.

  413. Robin says:

    i live in texas and when ever it snows i just love looking outside and seeing how soft and pretty it is outside…

  414. Lorraine ER says:

    As for weather, I hate snow/serious cold. One of the first things I did when I moved to New Orleans was throw out my ice scraper and it felt great!

  415. mn says:

    It usually takes hours for me to thaw out after shoveling the snow- luckily it was light and fluffy today but my legs are still freezing. I can’t believe this is the first real snow we’ve had this year (except for the freak Oct31 ice storm). I think some bronzer would make me feel less palid and snowbound.

  416. Linda Jansen says:

    Just recently bought MAC’s Vegas Volt lipstick and I’m in love… especially when I throw “Tour de Fabulous” lipglass over it! Those and MAC’s Flamingo are my favourite lip products lately πŸ™‚

  417. Aimee says:

    I could use a new mascara so I’d love to win! Thanks Karen.

    I love your in depth reviews! It really helps my decide on which items I want to splurge on since I have a strict college student budget! It would be awesome to win the gift card!

  420. Nidhi says:

    When I grow up, I want to design biosand water filters for developing countries. πŸ™‚ And it’d be nice to look great doing it! (SEPHORA LOVE.)

  421. Jennie Taylor says:

    would LOVE to win, I deserve a little pampering πŸ™‚

  422. heidi says:

    As part of my new year’s resolution I’m trying to take better care of my skin. I take of my makeup w/ neutragena wipes then wash. My face with clinique skincare line. Then put on eye cream (clinique moisture surge) and even better serum for hyperpigmentation. Then in the mornings I put on facial sunscreen and primer (hard candy sheer envy) before makeup. Also wet n wild lash serum.

  423. BettyS says:

    My skin care regimen:

    I’m due to have a baby girl in March, and she sucked the life right out of my skin right away. To counter that, I’ve had to make my own moisturizer (and it’s wonderful): 80% aloe vera, 10% jojoba, 5+% veggie glycerin, and a couple drops of rose hip oil for anti-aging. I’ve survived all winter with it without a hint of dry skin on my face. For stretch mark prevention, it’s a combo of pure coconut oil followed up by shea butter.

  424. Hohe says:

    I love warm weather. I don’t like winter in NYC. Cold weather with strong winds is the worst.

  425. Kate says:

    I’m happy to see the end of the snow here in WA (for now anyway). We have been very lucky in that our power was only out for approximately 8 hours during the whole storm. Some of my friends have had no power for three days now and that’s no fun at all. Bring on Spring, I love Spring:)

  426. Christy O says:

    I’ve been debating all day whether to buy a $60 bottle of champagne, “just because”. Why save these sorts of things only for special occasions? Just like a red lip. That’s an EVERYDAY treat.

  427. Kelsey says:

    WhatÒ€ℒs your favorite kind of weather (tropical like Hawaii, dry and hot like Sacramento, foggy like Eureka, temperate like San Francisco)?
    Sunny and in the 70s.

    Can you recommend a good face mask?
    Nope, sorry!

    What are your favorite TV shows?
    I tend to go for sci-fi shows.

    How many skincare products do you use in a typical day?
    Um, one or two. I’m really low maintenance (which is just another way of saying lazy!).

    What do you want to be when you grow up?
    Haha I’m already grown up! I’m a teacher, which is exactly what I want to be.

    WhatÒ€ℒs your current lipgloss crush?
    Actually right now I’m loving Burt Bees tinted balm in Rose. It’s my perfect MLBB shade.

  428. Avery says:

    Ohh I have my eye on the new LM pallet!

  429. terry says:

    definitely tropical. it’s rainy and cold right now and i’m getting the sniffles…

    Love your blog!
    I’m looking into splurging on some nails INC nail polish because I think they are so fantastic – this gift card would be great!

  441. Julia says:

    I was laughing as the Atlanta weathermen struggled with something to say (today) during their coverage of the thunderstorm.They said people should get their cars in their garages or under their carports because of hail. They even added they should do it BEFORE the hail started. Now that’s some really good advice, I’m sure car owners would never have thought of that on their own.

  442. Missy M says:

    Breezy, sunny and around 68

  443. Lindsey says:

    Everything here is covered in ice (I walked through my yard today and didn’t leave a single footprint) but I’d already been considering dropping a season or two long before this.

    Love this site as well. It’s a daily read!!

  449. peach_ says:

    LOL I’ve always wondered about the weather reports, too! They usually look so miserable and I just want to bring them a warm blanket and a cup of tea and usher them inside. It’s fun to know a lipstick lasted through your yoga class, etc. but agreed, no need to go out in a storm for a waterproof eyeliner test. πŸ˜›

    Stuck in the snow where I live. And I am enjoying it now that it is the weekend, but I was pretty miserable driving in it during the week!

  459. Jesse says:

    I was just at Sephora a few hours ago! And I bought the wrong color of blush by accident ):

    I love warm weather that’s not too hot and that has a nice breeze!

  464. My skincare routine is always changing but I’m loving first aid beauty lately. Amazingg

  465. Danielle F says:

    I like all different kinds of weather, but mostly I prefer the summer/fall. The hot and humid air in the summer that just makes you want to dive into a pool and the crisp/cool air of fall so conducive to long walks. πŸ™‚

  466. Tia says:

    My current fav tv show is American Horror Story. I finally got caught up on it over the last couple weeks and I’m just dying for the next season.

  470. auroragyps says:

    I’m so not sucking up, but my current fav lip gloss is Evolution Revolution. It’s just such a pretty neutral and the multi shimmer makes it so cool. I’ve been keeping it in my purse and wearing it by itself or over Revlon Wink for Pink, Maybelline Fruit Punch (the sheer jelly like lippie) or MAC Meltdown. I’m on the lookout for a good peach that isn’t too shimmery to wear with it too, as my Maybelline Wet Shine Fusion in Peach Nectar finally went bad.

  471. Vikki M says:

    I am so ready for spring. I want to see flowers and leaves on the trees.

    I’m not much of a general blog-reader, but I always check in here! Love your posts. I’ve lived in a number of different climates (from dreary drizzling Seattle to the horrifying heat of Fresno) but just recently moved to Long Beach, which never strays far from the 60s-80s range year-round. It’s practically insanity and I love it so far. Hope things are beautiful where you are!

  489. Melessa says:

    its always sunny in philadelphia is one of my favorite shows right now. its crude and vulgar though. one tag line i heard was seinfeld on crack.
    the office, i miss steve carell dearly, but i still think its a funny show.
    archer. frisky dingo! both crude humor (& by the same person). a lot of my shows are kind of love it hate it. and omg!
    written (directed?) and acted by the freaking genius that is
    chris lilley. its dry humor. a mini series about 2 students (a boy n girl) and a teacher (they dont interact) at a hs in australia. omg SO funny!! and for me very relatable. you should really check that one out on youtube! its only 8 episodes long. WATCH IT! youll only waste like 30 mins of your life if you dont like it lol

    I bought a joli rouge lipstick in shade 704 cupid red…The colour is a beautiful red and the feel is glossy.I feel like a princess whenever i wear this lipstick…The totall effect of this lipstick takes years off ur face πŸ™‚ and u feel wonderful

  493. Hailey says:

    It’s funny because I live in the Vancouver area and we never get more than a centimeter of snow, if any, but this week we got more than 40 cm plus freezing rain. Three school districts were closed for four days in a row! We’re probably going to have a lot of flooding really soon.

  494. Talya says:

    i like mustard

  495. K. says:

    My preferred climate would be one that is cold and yet isn’t dry!

  496. Mehr says:

    I absolutely, hand-down, L-O-V-E winter. Not the below freezing, blizzard inducing horror. No, but just the way it is now over here. The perfect nip in the air, light breeze, makes me wanna curl up under my cushy blanket and never come out. The only downside to this weather is the havoc it wreaks on my skin. Its sooooo dry πŸ™

  497. Lucia says:

    My fave kind of weather is tropical, but switching it up with SF weather is nice as well =) gives more options for clothing hehe

  498. Bonnie says:

    I want to earn a living by drawing when I grow up (because, at 30, I am not yet grown up). However, I do enjoy teaching, which is what I do, as well.

    And I, too, am glad for the respite from the rain here in the South Bay.

    Lastly, I clearly enjoy my commas. πŸ˜€
