A Makeup and Beauty Blog giveaway

Rise and shine, morning glory! If you’re a frequent visitor to the blog, you know what that means (it’s giveaway time!).


But before we get to that, I want to wish you a wonderful weekend and thank you for stopping by. I appreciate your time, your friendship, and your patience, because yes, I know that some of you often think, “Gawd, this woman must be crazy. All she ever does is talk about her cat!!!” Thankfully, you’re also understanding. After all, we each have our quirks.

Today we’re less than two weeks from the official start of spring! I hope your winter ends with something nice.

Without further ado, now it’s giveaway time. πŸ™‚

What folks are saying…

“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!”
-Chelsea (and Jiji the kitten and Quincy the bunny)

“Hi Karen and Tabs. Wow! Thanks so much for this! It’s hard to believe I actually won something. I can’t wait to shop my little heart out! Thanks again. Love to Tabs! And I love your blog with the Tabs stories. ;+)”
-Sophie, St Petersburg, FL

“Never before have I been so pleased to check my email right before bed!!! Thank you so, so much! I truly enjoy your blog and check it almost daily! Thanks again! This made my night!”
-Melissa, Edmond, OK

“Hi Karen. Oh my goodness! I can’t believe I won! :O Thank you so much! You, Tabs, and your blog are amazing! Thank you for keeping me updated on all things beauty and more importantly, for keeping me entertained! Keep doing your thing! πŸ™‚ Thank you again.”

“Hi Karen. Thank you so much, I’m so excited, I’ve never won anything before. My name is Hana … I just turned 25 (today is my birthday!) Yay! Thank you.”

    Hi Karen! Love your blog & your Tabs stories. He sounds like he & my cat, Patches, (yes, I named her Patches because she is a calico cat. I was ten at the time. Fifteen years later and she’s STILL giving me grief over it) would get along.
    I’m a sucker for red velvet & strawberry cupcakes, but I’m not a big fan of makeup that smells like food…I end up feeling hungry all day.

  9. Bekah says:

    All your talk about cupcakes just made me really crave a cupcake! Yum! πŸ™‚

    I have had a crazy week – lots of school stuff going on, deciding to move and consequently going to look at apartments, and the apartment building I’m living in now had a fire! Everybody inside, including myself, are fine, but it was a pretty panic filled couple of hours!

  45. Caitlin says:

    I usually wash my hair every other day and my bangs every day. However, I lived in India for a while and there (because I wasn’t trying to impress anyone) I washed my hair 1 time a week. It was gross at first but then I got used to it and my hair was never as healthy!

  46. Jana Ricketts says:

    My favorite lip product is CO Bigelow Metha Lip Tint at Bath and Body Works πŸ™‚ Thanks Karen! xoxo

  65. Audrey says:

    I wash my hair every day. I know it’s not good for my hair, but my bangs get greasy pretty fast. Maybe I’ll give dry shampoo a shot and see if I can skip a wash every once in a while!

  66. Amy D. says:

    I live in the Northern hemisphere!

  67. Bing says:

    Just took Remy the cat to get her nails trimmed. She was not gracious for the mani-pedi treatment.

  70. jane says:

    thinking of picking up a new tinted moisturizer or sheer foundation. maybe laura mercier?

  71. Lacie says:

    Hi Karen! I share your obsession with Ryan Gosling. He has been my favorite for about 7 years. I was curious if you’ve heard his band before. Wasn’t sure if you’d mentioned that on the blog previously. That guy can do everything!

  72. Dia says:

    My favorite lip product would be all the Burt’s Bees lip balms. I own multiple of each kind and I love them all.

  73. Bailey Nichols says:

    I would die to own the Naked palette, but I would rather spend it on hair care products. <3

  74. Marian says:

    I wash my hair every day!

  75. Pam says:

    My favorite lip products are Carmex (cherry flavor) and MAC sheen supreme lipstick in Can’t Get Enough.

  76. Tiera says:

    My favorite lip product right now is the Clinique Chubby Stick in Mega Melon!

    I’m more of a lip balm girl, so I like to use Burt’s Bees Pomegranate balm, Clinique Chubby Sticks, and I really want to try all of those tinted lip balms you’ve been reviewing, but I haven’t seen them at my local drugstore yet or even at Target.

  82. It’s a clean house kinda Saturday! Spring cleaning in full effect!

  84. AS says:

    Yup, you do all the work, and Tabs gets the credit, is the impression I get from the quotes above. That cat has you under his thumb (paw, dew claw????)

  85. Anna says:

    I love Fresh Sugar lip treatment in Rose!

  86. Karen B says:

    I wash my hair every other day. I wish I could reduce it to once every three days. Ah well.

  87. Karen says:

    I just bought a Laura Mercier Kohl Eye Pencil in Black Navy – so far, I like it πŸ™‚

  88. SarahW says:

    Ahh the first time going into MAC I pulled out a MAC Lipgloss my grandma had given me was asking me ” Do you need something to swatch that with?” I then panicked and was like ” Oh no this is mine” and ran out. It was the only Lipgloss in my purse lol. Embarrassed!

  89. Andrea says:

    My favorite lip product is definitely Jack Black Lip Balms. Truly is a product that changed my life. Never leave home without one!

  90. Sharene says:

    I have finals this week and I can’t seem to motivate myself to get out of bed!

  91. Rudin says:

    I live in the Northern Hemisphere.

  92. Yukari says:

    My current favourite lip combo is Benefit Posietint + Benefit Ultra Shines Lipgloss in Foxy Lady. Super pretty pink lips!

  93. Jolie says:

    My sorority formal is tonight! Definitely going to take my time to apply my make up and hair πŸ™‚
    Usually MUFE Mat Velvet + in shade 40 is perfect for me, but since my whole body, excluding my face, has gotten super tanned over reading break (reading break is like spring break for Canadians), I’ve been mixing the Mat Velvet + 40 with Rimmel’s Lasting Finish 25Hr. Foundation Tube in shade 400 Natural Beige!!

    This creates the perfect shade so that my face matches my tanned body + gives even better coverage than just the MUFE alone!!

  94. TrippyPixie says:

    I used to wash my hair every other day, but now I have to wash it every day. It’s getting too long (for me, shoulder length), so it’s been frizzy, limp, and unmanageable. In two weeks, I’m getting my hair cut, since that’s my spring break. At that point, my hair will be jaw-length and more manageable. (Though the upcoming rain and humidity will make my hair explode into frizziness anyway.)

  95. Ash G says:

    I have to wash my hair everyday. Even the dry shampoos can’t help this oil slick. Yuck!

  96. Janet says:

    Hi Karen! So today I’m having major buyers remorse after the Gap haul I pulled off yesterday BUT I did get 40% off my purchase AND I did need more jeans. It’s all the other stuff I’m trying to
    justify buying. Ah well, c’est la vie…. Hmmmm, I did spot some things on sale at Anthro I wanted. Here we go again!!!

  97. Ellie says:

    I wear makeup even when I’m not leaving the house.. not because I can’t go anywhere without it, but because it’s so fun to experiment with different looks. I really can’t get enough!!

  98. Jamie says:

    Woohoo! I desperately need to find a suitable red lipstick and more Benefit glosses! @JamieBraziel

  99. Yay giveaway time! I am lying in bed and I have to get up and get more coffee, but I’m so comfy it’s hard to do.

  105. lisa brown says:

    I have a blue bird couple moving into one of my outdoor bird houses. This means a baby bluebird coming in the late spring. I can’t wait.

  106. Kristy says:

    Hiii! I have to admit, I’m ready to shop my little (and heartbroken) heart out if I win this giveaway. Seriously, nothing perks a girl up more than some fun lip color, wonderful makeup blogs, and cute pictures of animals like Tabs. So thank you so much for this blog and the whimsy you put into it, Karen!

  122. Dominique D. says:

    I absolutely love the Revlon lip butters.

  127. hannah says:

    i’m glad to know there is someone who loves cats as much as I do

  128. Y. says:

    I wash/style my hair about 3 times a week, sometimes four
    I try to stay away from heat products since they burn my hair and prefer mousse instead;)

  129. Lisa says:

    I usually only wash my hair when I swim, so about 3x a week. I rinse it or use dry shampoo other days if it needs it.

  130. Hillary says:

    Just watched The Dutchess with Keira Knightley. Beautiful film, but quite sad!

  131. Katherine says:

    I love Nars Dolce Vita lipstick. It is just the perfect MLBB color.

    I enjoyed my son’s soccer game today

  135. Jeanne says:

    I just spent over $60 on new shampoo and conditioner last night. It’s bumble & bumble, but that was a bit of a sticker shock! I’ve had a pixie for so long that I wasn’t buying fancy shampoo (or buying it much at all — a big bottle of drugstore shampoo lasts A LONG TIME when you’ve got super-short hair), but now that my hair’s grown out, it’s time to get the good stuff…

    Hello Karen <3 πŸ™‚

    I hope you're having a wonderful day…this is my first time writing to you, although I have to admit I've been a fan of your blog for a while now. I'm a law student who loves music and cats, although can you believe it…I have two gorgeous doggies at home instead πŸ™‚ Ah well, love is love is love, right? πŸ™‚
    I have had the weirdest, most toughest week ever….lots of confusion over a wonderful boyfriend and my folks, so its been one hell of a melodramatic week! Which I would honestly, not have gotten through without my exceptionally wonderful room mate (god bless girlfriends, don't you think?) Anyway, I hoped I could win this gift card, so I could get my roomie, something she's been eyeing for a while (oh I didn't realize there was a pun in there, because what she's been eyeing is some seriously good eye make up) …but either way, thank you and Tabs for giving me something to read and learn from every day of the week, no matter how weird the world can get sometimes.

    Thanks tons

  162. Christy O says:

    It’s so odd how as I age I’m going backwards, makeup-wise. In my teens and late twenties I bought Chanel, Dior, Makeup Forever. Now in my late twenties I am all about Rimmel, NYX and Covergirl. It’d be neat to buy something from Sephora again.

    I love urban decays deslick spray! i spray it on right after my primer and when my whole face of make up is done. I didnt realize how much it did until i ran out and didnt have any for about 2 weeks. It does wonders for my oily skin!

  169. Nadia A. says:

    My favorite lip products are MAC lipglosses and lipsticks. They have beautiful colors. And I absolutely love the vanilla scent that MAC lipglosses and lipsticks have.

  184. onegreatsmile says:

    I try to wash my hair only 3x a week or less if I can get away with it. I only use semi permanent color to cover my gray and if I wash it more than that, it rinses out. Plus, I have so little hair, I’m always afraid more will fall out!

    My favorite lip color right now is MAC satin lipstick in Twig. It’s very pigmented, and for me, a perfect “your lips but better” shade.

    my favorite lip product is convertible color by stila, color peony! =)

  224. Becca says:

    I’ve been thinking lately that I would really like to start playing around with bright color on my lips–I’ve always been a “emphasize my eyes” kinda girl and have always left my lips either bare (with Aquaphor applied, of course) or used a tinted balm (like Fresh Sugar Honey Tinted Lip Treatment). I absolutely LOVE the bright lip trend for spring and am thinking that my first foray into brighter colors will be a YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain in Coril Fauve!

    I have issues with my hair – daily washing seems to be too much but every other day leaves me a greasy mess; every day and a half seems just right but so hard to do.

    Have a great weekend Karen! Good luck with Daylight Savings. I so dread the “spring forward” on Sunday – it messes me up for days, sometimes weeks.

  229. Michaela says:

    My favorite lip product is Burt’s Bees Pomegranate Lip Balm. It works beautifully, smells amazing, and gives a tiny little tint so I’m not all pasty-pale.

    First, my two absolute favorite products are Revlon’s lip butter in the color Creme Brulee, and my Revlon PhotoReady Airbrush. <– I would just about die if I couldn't get these two products!
    I have a 4 year old daughter named Reylenra, Rey for short. (Pronounced ray-len-rah) She is the most important thing/love of my life.
    I have a dog named Sunny (yellow lab) and she's the sweetest thing in the world, and a fish named Fred (he's blue and purple). Those two are like my babies, hehe.
    My favorite color is pink, but sometimes I get into a phase where I really really like yellow.
    When I was in High School, my favorite two classes were Psychology 101 and Algebra.
    Oh heck, I'll throw this in too. I wash my hair every two days so that I give my hair a break and don't strip it of it's natural oils.
    My all-time favorite movie has got to be…The Never Ending Story, but the last good movie that I seen was Faces in the Crowd (for anyone who hasn't seen it, you should really go check it out!).

    And I live in the Northern Hemisphere, Cape Cod, Massachusetts US to be exact πŸ˜‰

    I have very fine, thin hair, so I have to wash it every single day. People look at me like I’m crazy when I say this, but I actually start getting a headache if I go a day and a half without washing my hair. By the way, the focus on Tabs is a big reason I visit this site!

    Hi Karen and Tabs!

    I wash my hair every couple of days – whenever I feel the need! My hair is curly, so it’s a pain to straighten it, and the curls look better if I don’t wash every day.

  279. Jaa Maurer says:

    I wash my hair every other day =D

  280. Amanda G says:

    I wash my hair once to twice a week. And I refuse to let anyone try to shame me for that anymore, because
    a) My hair is super thick and coarse and hard to wash in an efficient and timely manner.
    b) Due to said thickness and coarseness my hair dries sooo slooowly. I washed my hair this morning at 9 am, I left it loose all day (no bun or ponytail), and it’s STILL a little damp at 6pm. If I washed my hair everyday it would never be fully dry again.
    c) I have a super dry scalp that takes forever to make enough oil to make my hair look grimy, and which turns flaky, gross, over-dried, and angry if I wash too frequently.
    d) I don’t use any product in my hair, so I don’t have to wash product out of my hair.

    The last great movie I saw was The Artist, which won the Oscar for Best Picture. I saw John Carter last night, which is a little bit like the (bastard) child of Star Wars Episodes I-III and Avatar.

  288. I don’t know that I want to get into how rarely I wash my hair – it’s slightly shocking. Let’s just say I hate having to brush it out, and I therefore wear a lot of hats.

    I’m happy right now bc I just heard from the vets that my chubby, shiny tabby that looks just like Tabs (but with a slightly dozier expression) is probably going to be okay and come home – I’m SO relieved!!! !
