A Makeup and Beauty Blog giveaway

I don’t mind running for cupcakes.


They’re like my carrots. If you put a cupcake at the end of a stick in front of me, I’ll run after it. Every time.

So if you think about it, someone should invent something like that for treadmills, ya know? A stick that goes into the console and dangles a cupcake out in front.

I’d be hella runnin’ after that cupcake, yo.

Right now there are two of them — cupcakes — the little mini ones, one lemon and one strawberry, on the coffee table here in front of me, and they’re taunting me… I can hear their little voices in my head: “Oh, my gosh! We’re just so sweet and yummy. I hope someone eats us soon, tee-hee!”

Rise and shine, morning glory! It’s going to be a beautiful day. πŸ™‚

I hope your weekend got off to a great start. I’m about to head to yoga class now, and then after that maybe to a cafe to order a frothy drink and just sit with my notebook for an hour.

Tabs is in charge of this morning’s giveaway until I get back. See you soon.

    I am not really a cupcake person but I do make these vegan cupcakes for my husband that are very tasty. It’s unbelievable how good things taste without dairy, cannot even tell the difference.

  103. Bel says:

    I actually make cupcakes about once a month, so we are always trying new flavors πŸ™‚ Baking is one of my favorite things to do other than trying out new makeup!

  104. Heather says:

    Cupcakes …. ahh … how I love thee, little cupcake … I think I’ve tried most of the places that sell cupcakes around San Francisco, and I think Kara’s makes the best. I haven’t made cupcakes in years because I don’t trust myself to have them around the house.

  105. Ingrid Gossum says:

    I like cupcakes but only without the icing! So does that make them muffins-ish?

    I love the vanilla cupcakey smell of the MAC lipglosses

  108. Danielle says:

    It’s been a looooooooong time since I baked cupcakes, but I liked making filled ones. Yum!

  109. Nadine says:

    Yup, I enjoy baking and cupcakes are comparatively easy! Layer cakes are fussy. I don’t like gourmand-scented beauty products that smell sweet, sugary, and like they belong in a bakery. I’m fine with beauty products that smell floral, fresh, or fruity.

  110. Patricia Caradonna says:

    I enjoy making cupcakes and eating them. My favorite is vanilla with french vanilla icing – delicious!

  111. Sad S. says:

    I’m not into baking as much as I’d like to be, but I do enjoy my mom’s cakes and breads from scratch! I don’t really care for food scents in makeup or fragrances, and definitely NOT In gum – why would I want to freshen my breath with dessert flavors? That is so weird to me.

    Thanks for the giveaway!!

  116. auroragyps says:

    One favorite cupcake of mine is made with white cake mix with a box of Jello gelatin added. Easy, fruity, & yummy. You can add a whole box or there’s a recipe some where where you use part of the box in the mix & the other to make frosting for the cupcakes.

    I don’t really like cupcakes or most sweets for that matter. It’s pretty weird since I’m pretty fat, lol. I guess I do like homemade ones, but only with a teensy bit of frosting. Those fancy cupcakes with 4 inches of swirled frosting on top make me gag. Yuck!

  152. Michelle says:

    I laughed my butt off at the idea of you running with a cupcake dangling in front of you. Thanks for that! As for a gift card, I could really use one. And I’d bribe you with cupcakes if I knew it would work (I also know it won’t because you are so far above that). Out of curiosity, what is your favorite kind? Mine is dark chocolate with cream cheese frosting. Le sigh.

    Speaking of cupcakes, I just read this morning that Sprinkles, the chain started in LA whose first branch was right across the street from my office has now invented, and will start rolling out… ….. … … wait for it… … … CUPCAKE ATMs!!! Holy cream cheese frosting. My hips are already screaming in fear, but my brain is saying, “YES! YES! YES!!”

  161. Yes I bake, but I haven’t yet baked cupcakes! I really should though, because they’re such a trendy novelty here in Belgium that they’re unreasonably expensive!

  170. Carol says:

    I love to bake! I think that’s a big reason why I’m drawn to gourmand and food-type fragrances.

  171. Cass says:

    I live in Boston and there is this awesome cupcake place on the south shore called Babycakes. They make the best cupcakes! I get cupcakes any time I go out of town and they never compare.

    As much as I love food, I dislike products that smell like food. I ended up giving away that cupcake flavored body wash from the Sephora birthday gift a few years back. I just don’t enjoy it and sometimes it makes me nauseous and I am not scent sensitive. I love citrus flavored scents though. It is so strange how different tastes are!

  172. Bruna Louise says:

    I hate baking. I find that the recipes often work once, and the second time it comes out all wrong. I’d rather throw some pasta, chicken, and vegetables into a pan and cook until golden brown–cheese always helps too.

  187. Liz G. says:

    Hi Karen! I love to bake and cupcakes are so easy. I like making them better than a full cake because then you have built-in portion control. I’m portion control-challenged so it is really important to me because I can easily scarf down a complete cake in no time at all, especially if it is chocolate!

  188. Ceci says:

    My favorite cupcake is made by Hostess.

  189. Lisa says:

    No gluten for me, so no cupcakes πŸ™ Seriously Karen, I love your blog, even if you didn’t have contests, I still read it every day!

    Regarding scented makeup, it definitely depends on the scent. I generally don’t like makeup with floral scents, like some Anna Sui products (rose-scented). Sweet food scents aren’t too bothersome; in fact, I actually bought the Philosophy Frosted Animal Cracker Lip Shine bc I loved the smell of the body wash so much. Seriously, I would snort the stuff if i could.

    I really don’t like food scented cosmetics or air fresheners because they make me hungry. It is like having something cooking in the crockpot all day. I love baking. I often make banana bread with chocolate chips because the children at school prefer chocolate chips over walnuts. I also make iced blueberry cookies and banana nut muffins with flax seed.
    I enjoyed reading your post on the Mac seminar, as I have never been to one, but my daughter and I love Mac. She recently started a blog. I wonder if Mac ever offers products for review and/or giveaways. Ok – you did say leave a comment, not write a novel!

    I love to bake cupcakes. Also love Sprinkles cupcakes…yummy! Unfortunately, I always eat way too much. I try not to have too many temptations in the house, at one

  366. Felis says:

    I suck at baking but I like to try it anyway, so I’m always surprised when I make something that DOESN’T come out all jacked up!

  367. chibicheeks says:

    I love to bake! I’m not great at it though, so it usually takes me three times longer to prep πŸ™

    My favourite cupcake maker – my mother.

  373. Katie says:

    LOVE any lipgloss with mint scents–so refreshing to apply! Also, the ones with a hint of toasted marshmallow are kind of nice too!! Don’t bake much these days. . .but lemon cupcakes and red velvet cupcakes are the bomb!!!!!!

  377. Effy says:

    I love lemon cupcake!

  378. Liz says:

    I love to cook (and I’m pretty good at it) but baking really isn’t my strength. There are a few things I do really well, like lemon bars or tres leches cake, but overall I stick to the savory stuff and buy my sweets. A girl can’t be perfect!

    I love to bake! Cupcakes are my favorite πŸ™‚

  380. Dominique says:

    Now you have me craving a cupcake. I think I will have to make a stop at Magnolia’s tomorrow for an afterwork treat.

  381. Christine says:

    Sprinkles Cupcakes have the cutest designs and a great variety of flavors. I only get these once a year around the holidays since I have to drive kinda far to get there, but my favorites are Chocolate Marshmallow and Black and White (i love me some choco)

  382. Gail says:

    Made the best pizza last nite – upside down Scilian – Cheese goes on before the sauce – delish

  383. ashleigh says:

    I love baking. There’s this local bakery that make bumpy cupcakes. Its a very indulgent cupcake and I only get them once a year on my birthday

  384. Christine says:

    I love using boxed cake mix and changing it up a little to make my cupcakes- just cause it’s not from “scratch” doesn’t mean they’re no good!

  385. Dia says:

    I’m a horrible cook so… I usually try to stay away from baking. But I do enjoy other peoples cupcakes!

  386. BB says:

    I love baking. I have made cupcakes that were fairly similar to my fave– Magnolia Bakery (in NYC and beyond?).

  387. Karen F says:

    For my friends birthday last November, I made Caramel Frappacino cupcakes! They are a coffee cupcake, with caramel and coffe mousse in the middle, topped off with butter cream frosting!

  391. Caitlin says:

    Red velvet cupcakes or oreo cupcakes! Nutella to!!

  392. TrippyPixie says:

    I’m not a huge fan of cupcakes (or sweet foods in general). They’re alright, but their time as a “fancy” dessert will definitely be viewed as a fad.

    That being said, if I was somewhere and there were only cupcakes to eat, I’d go for a red velvet cupcake with real cream cheese frosting. However, I like taking red velvet cake mix and making cookies out of it.

    I’m not a big fan of baking. Not only is it too exact for me, but I don’t really like sweet foods. However, I AM able to bake. I just prefer to cook (and in that case, my specialties are frying, sauces, seasonings, using a wok, and dealing with meat).

  393. Lucia says:

    Hmm, not a cupcake person, but I definitely love me some cookies. I bake those the most often =)

  394. Crystal says:

    I just had my eyebrows filled in after getting them waxed at a benefit brow bar and now I’ crushing hard on Brow Zings. I *need* to buy it soon!

  395. Melodyy says:

    Mmm I love birthday cake (: I had some yesterday for my birthday, I love cupcakes too but I always feel like I overeat them, since it’s kind of small. I don’t really have a favorite baker for cupcakes because I feel like a bunch of places make them too sweet, so I do like to do my own baking (:

  396. ayesha nayab says:

    umm i love red velvet cupcakes.i LOVE baking….
    i ve followed you on twitter too:)

  397. Nikki T says:

    I once had a red velvet that was lemon flavored! it was good, but just threw me off, because I wasn’t expecting lemon flavor.
    So many cute things out now. I think I want to try a new MAC palette or perhaps a new parfum.

  398. Liz says:

    Mmmm! Cupcakes…

    I love products that smell like food. Like the too faced bronzer chocolate soleil, it smells so yummy

  405. Emily M says:

    My coworker recently made cupcakes she called margarita cupcakes! Sounds kinda odd but they were amazing. I gotta say as good as those things were no sugary confection would make me book it on the treadmill like dangling a Sephora gift certificate in front of me! Woot!

  406. Ashley says:

  412. Michelle says:

  413. Toby says:

    Cupcakes are so good, but so time-consuming to make! I find a lot of stores make the icing too sickly-sweet, though.

  414. LauraA says:

    The daily photos this week have been great, and the cupcakes look fantastic. Both would have been eaten within an hour of each other. πŸ™‚

    My favorite kind to make and eat are a pumpkin spice cupcake with some variation on cream cheese or buttercream frosting. Yummy year-round.

    Thank you for another great giveaway opportunity, Karen!

  424. Felicia says:

    I love cupcakes!

  425. Nina Van Jacob says:

    I love pink cupcakes. They are so pretty. Especially with icing and sprinkles:)

  426. Definitely a cupcake person, I like chocolate with cream cheese in the middle, or a real, southern red velvet – none of these sad yankee imitations.

    Don’t like when cosmetics smell like food though – make me confused and hungry all the time!

  429. Jessica says:

    I have a serious sweet tooth, and cupcakes are not excluded! I think my favorite has to be red velvet, I can never resist trying one from every bakery I happen across! I should try making my own one day, I love baking but rarely have time for it anymore ):
