A Makeup and Beauty Blog Giveaway!

They’re what I like to call “brain cheese.”


Ya know, brainless B-movies that border on unwatchable, but you end up watching them anyway because you’re not in the mood to think.

I had some brain cheese the other night in the form of SyFy’s Rise: Blood Walker (starring Lucy Liu!). It’s the usual “You turned me into a [INSERT PRETERNATURAL CREATURE HERE], and now I want my revenge!” flick.

Like a Lifetime movie…except with vampires.

Anywho, during one of the commercial breaks, I saw a promo for the new season of Face Off, SyFy’s special effects makeup reality show.

ChronicleI didn’t watch the show last season, but I heard it was good. If you saw it, what did you think? Is it worth using my telekinesis, like in Chronicle, which I saw last night (OMG!), to program the DVR with my mind??

Oh, yes, CHRONICLE! Brain cheese need not apply, not unless we’re talking about Caciocavallo Podolico, which’ll set you back about $650/pound. I thought it was smart, thought provoking, thrilling, different and really well filmed (LOVE the flying scenes). One of my favorite sci-fi movies in years.

It’s a superhero/villain origin story of sorts about three high school friends who, through mysterious means, acquire the ability to manipulate objects in their environment with their minds. Telekinesis.

Okay, now, maybe from that description…it doesn’t sound very smart or different, but that’s just the dressing. What happens before and after that is the yummy salad.

I was worried about the cinematography before going in because I’d read that it was filmed in a style called “found footage,” like The Blair Witch Project and Cloverfield, where the characters are supposedly filming themselves with home video cameras, but while the camerawork in those two movies seemed a little gimmicky and clumsy to me, I thought it blended beautifully into the story in Chronicle.

Speaking of beauty, don’t we usually have a giveaway on Saturdays? Of course we do. ๐Ÿ™‚ So let’s get on with it then.

    I loved your post about the China Glaze/Hunger Games collection, but I am a little confused. To me, the ‘colors of the capital’ should be a lot brighter and flamboyant. Don’t get me wrong, I love the neutrals – but the collection seems misnamed.

  127. Caylan says:

    I wear makeup to the movies unless I know it is one where I will be crying the entire time! (like extremely loud & incredibly close)…. just saw that and cried throughout the whole movie! However, the exception is definitely when I am on a date at the movies… makeup is necessary in that case!

  128. Libby says:

    I like to watch those Syfy movies with friends. “Ice Spiders” and “Sharktopus” (or whatever it’s called) were hilariously awful.

    I’m currently reading the Hunger Games trilogy and cant wait to see the movie!

  131. Hilary says:

    If I had a superpower I would probably act like it was this huge secret, but everyone would totally know because I would “confide” in them about it. It would be ridiculous.

  132. Michaela says:

    I have given up on Valentine’s day, just like I’ve given up on ever finding “the one”. Some people are just destined to be alone, and I’m pretty sure I’m one of them. Feeling strangely ok about it, too.

  133. nicolle says:

    at home with a crazy cold today. perfect excuse to snuggle in and watch some movies!

  134. Bronwyn says:

    Ohmigosh Face Off is so addictive! Seriously… I make any of my friends who are even mildly interested in makeup to watch it (especially my guy friends), and I’ve now gone through the whole series three times, not to mention random episodes with people on top of that. Plus, they don’t focus on the people, so it’s actually about amazing special effect concepts. You should watch it Karen!

  135. katie says:

    i loooove face off. i was mad about the winner last year, but c’est la vie. this year i only got to see the first two episodes and then i don’t have cable anymore. they aren’t posting any more online till the 16th! ugh.

  159. Jamie Richardson (@shelbyjade13) says:

    if i had a superpower, i would want to have the ability to show women around the world that cultural expectations are only confining if you buy into them. people will always try to define you by stereotypes, but at the end of the day, your life is yours. so don’t wait to live your life until you reach your goal weight, don’t do something because it is expected of you — instead reflect and find what you want out of life, and then go for it. fortunately, the chains ARE that easy to remove once you realize you are the only one with the key.

    When I was around 10 years old, I auditioned for and got the part of Mother Goose in a silly play. I think I had about 2 lines in the play, but it was fun wearing the outfit!

  170. sweeks1980 says:

    I’ve never auditioned for a play, but I used to do a lot of backstage work. At several points, I had to help run auditions. It was an interesting if sometimes maddening process ๐Ÿ™‚

  193. Christina says:

    I cried in Lilo and Stitch…

  194. Cass says:

    I always wear powder, lip stain, hace curled lashes, and groomed brows if I am going to be leaving the house. Except when I go to volunteer at the animal shelter. If I am cleaning cages, it is the only time that I can leave the house without minimal make up.

    I know it sounds silly but I had acne as a teenager and rosacea as an adult, so I am pretty self conscious about my face. The curled lashes and groomed brows make SUCH a huge difference and do not take long to do.

  195. Sara says:

    Love your review of the PixiGlow collection.

    Sci-fi: no thank you! But I always thought the old 60’s and 70’s sci-fu movies were fun to watch because they are so cheesy! ;D

  219. Liz says:

    I would like to roll up into the new Paul & Joe collection and sleep in it FOREVER

  238. AK says:

    As “E” from Pixar’s Incredibles said, capes are disastrous with superheros. They get caught in wind turbines, jet engines, missiles, etc. Non functional and probably more of a hazard than anything!

  239. Graciela says:

    I really enjoy watching Misfits a british show about teenagers who get superpowers after a storm(not as corny as it sounds)..I watch it on hulu you should check it out!

    I must start by saying that I love reading your blog because your reviews are so good and helpful and your posts are so relevant and entertaining. Frankly, I don’t read sic-fi, Gossip Girl is more my thing. But I am in the process of reading the Hunger Games that everyone and their mother has raved about. I’m excited. Have you read it? Ya know, if I had a super power, I’d probably just tell my friends and family and that superpower would either be super strength or invisibility. Thanks for offering this giveaway.

  271. Lisa says:

    We had a snow storm two weeks ago and our power was out for five days. On the second day we went out to eat and I used the ladies room to wash my hands. I came out of the bathroom exclaiming to my husband “They have hot water!” My husband replied “you go girl, use that hot water!”

    Man, I was torn last night from having to choose between Chronicle and The Woman in Black. My fiance and I went ahead with the thriller. I was quite impressed with Daniel Radcliffe’s performance. There were a lot of scary jump in your seat moments. Let’s just say my man is too cocky enough to admit he got scared. Hahahaha As for make up at the movies, regardless if no one sees my blending skills, I gotta make sure my face looks nice and pretty. ;~)

  294. Shelby says:

    I am really loving this blog!

  295. Piper says:

Not a requirement but I just like to put in the effort whenever we go out, no matter where we go ๐Ÿ™‚ also its fun to see him try to figure out why I look different that day, whether it’s a different eyeshadow combo or a touch of bronzer.

  328. lisa says:

    I love Sephora!!!

  329. Airess says:

    You know I never really thought about not wearing makeup to the movies; I guess because I always either go to the store or dinner before or after the movie. But since you mentioned it if the destination is only the theater and then home it really doesnt make sense to put on a full face of makeup since you will be in the dark. My husband and I are going to see the Woman In Black tomorrow and yes I probably will be wearing makeup! lol

  330. Mary says:

    If I had a superpower it would be the ability to be invisible and no, I wouldn’t tell anyone. ๐Ÿ™‚

    P.S. your cat, Tabs, is fabulous!

  341. LauraA says:

    I love sci-fi, and picking a favorite character is hard. Depending on the day, it could be Hari Seldon or the Multi-Vac (ha!) from Asimov, or Ejon Tichy from Lem, or Deanna Troi from Star Trek NG.

    Thanks for another great giveaway opportunity, Karen! ๐Ÿ™‚

  342. Lacey says:

  372. Mairyn says:

    Favourite sci-fi character? Could we include BBC’s Merlin in that? I guess that’s technically fantasy, but to me fantasy and sci-fi go together. Merlin is definitely my favourite ๐Ÿ™‚ Or Gaius!

  383. My boyfriend and I are planning to get engaged soon- and he brought me ring window shopping the other day to gauge the prices of rings. I fell in love with a Tiffany & Co ring, which cost about US$ 300+, but I’m still considering it because I believe in an expensive wedding ring and not an expensive engagement ring haha ๐Ÿ˜› I definitely have my eyes on the Tiffany platinum rings though!

  384. Sarah says:

    Going out to a movie is a special occasion for me so I would definitely be wearing makeup! And hopefully I’m using makeup from using this sephora e-gift!

  386. Christina says:

  388. becca says:

    Augre in The Dark Crystal…everyone in that movie was great. Is that sci fi? Lol

  394. Melitina says:

    Why not wear makeup when going to the movies? It’s 1h30 inside, but I still want to look fabulous the rest of the night, heehee. Oh, only if it’s a drama I must not forget the waterproof mascara cause I’m a cry baby ๐Ÿ˜‰

  395. Rachael says:

    I’m trying to convince my parents to let me keep an alpaca at their farm. Mom says no and that we’ll just have to go to the winery near them that has a pack of alpacas.

  396. Sydney says:

    I wear makeup to the movies unless I know I’m going to be crying.

  397. sherm says:

    I haven’t seen a movie in theatres since Harry Potter 7.2 and won’t until Hunger Games! I wish I had a projector so I could have “big screen” movies while sitting on my own couch, surrounded only by blankets instead of people.

  398. Good to hear that you enjoyed Chronicle! I was actually supposed to watch that with a friend after dinner on Friday, but then we spent so long chatting and having a good time. When we were ready to leave, it was too late! Haha, oh well, I’m sure I’ll watch it some other time.

    Thanks for this opportunity, Karen!

  430. Saddy says:

    Real Steel was a pretty good sci-fi that I saw recently – yes, it’s robot boxing, but it was more of an endearing father-son story at it’s core.

    Plus, Hugh Jackman is ALL kinds of hot!!

    one of my favorite sci-fi novels from when I was younger was Ender’s Game, and I loved the book. not sure I loved the character (Ender) as he ended up being a villain of sorts. I do want to watch Chronicle! I remember being really intrigued with the cf.

    I’m happy I get to spend Valentine’s with le bf this year, as we’re long distance, so I don’t get to see him as often as I’d like.

  439. Melody says:

    I always wear makeup when I go to the movies. Idk why. I mean it is dark in there, but I think it’s because I don’t wear makeup just to look nice, I wear it because it’s fun.

  440. Melissa says:

    I flew to Ny this weekend to surprise my friend for her birthday!

  441. Michelle B. says:

    I tend to wear makeup to the movie theater because generally, going to movies equals date night with the boy. This sometimes backfires if the movie is super sad. Someone should have warned me about the first 10 minutes of “Up”!

    Hmm…I was all set to not see Chronicle, but you’re now the second person to say it was fantastic. I kept getting a cheesy Final Destination type feeling from the commercials, but it seems I was mistaken
