Two Ways to Win a $50 eGift Card from Sephora!

Published in: Giveaways, Just For Fun

A Makeup and Beauty Blog giveaway

Luck o’ the Irish to ya! That’s one of the ways El Hub wooed me into marrying him, by saying that because he’s part Irish, we would have a long and lucky life. I’d pretty much already made up my mind by then, but ya know, it was another selling point. ๐Ÿ™‚


Happy St. Patrick’s Day! May you be very fortunate, not just today, but always.

I can’t think of anything new or noteworthy this morning. We did go see that movie last night, 21 Jump Street, and that was a lot of fun. You gimme a big bag of mixed popcorn/kettlecorn, Channing Tatum in a uniform and a pretty well-written comedy, and I’m a happy gal.

I’m still dusting the cobwebs off my brain this morning, so I’m having a wee bit o’ difficulty (because it’s St. Paddy’s, I’m going to talk like that all day long; just warning you) stringing my sentences together, but I’m sure today’s fried food and beer will help, haha!

Time to make a Starbuck’s run. Can I get you something while I’m there? You stay here and enter today’s giveaway. I’ll be right back.

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! ๐Ÿ™‚ 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.”

  34. Kayla says:

    I just painted my nails L’oreal Safari Chic! It’s not noticeably “St. Patrick’s Day green” but after I saw your review, I had to have it! So I purchased it (along with Grecian Goddess) and figured today would be the perfect day to wear it.

  35. Shana says:

    No green for me, but my husband’s rocking his green polo shirt.

    still working on an outfit but I’ve totally got my nails ready – wanted a subtle green so went in for a revlon ‘spanish moss’ and glittered it up a bit. Would love to win that gift card – have my eye on a couple of things! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love to you and Tabs!!

  42. Melodyy says:

    I found a four leaf clover once in elementary school and I kept it for ages to help bring some luck! But I never found one again after that ): I’ve never used green eyeshadow, this girlie is afraid of color! haha (:

  43. Ellie says:

    Staying at home today, so I haven’t really been bothered to wear green stuff or put on green makeup or anything.
    To change the subject completely: I’m listening to Broken Horse by Freelance Whales, one of my favourite songs! Such a relaxing song, also it’s mellow and a bit tragic. Great song.

  44. vanessa says:

    yay spring is in the air!!!!

  45. Kim says:

    Fried mushrooms with ranch are the shiz.

  46. Chelsea says:

    I’m really really good at finding four leaf clovers. I don’t even have to look for them, they find me.

  47. Connie Cruz says:

    I’ve never had green beer. Where exactly would one purchase some?

  48. Jenn P says:

    Happy St. Patrick’s day! Have eaten my share of fried food but I have since given it up, had green beer and I’m gonna be bold and not wear green today! (Mostly because I have no green to wear!) Plus its a cold rainy day here in San Diego so bundled up it is!

  49. Emilee says:

    wearing green eyeshadow and nail polish today!!

  50. Beth Creel says:

    Happy St. Patty’s Day! Did you know the original color for today was blue? To be doubly protected, I am wearing a mulit-color mani like yours in blue and green.

  51. Happy Saint Patrick’s, Karen and Tabs! I used Urban Decay 24/7 in Stash as base, the lighter shade of NARS Paramaribo on the inner half of my lids, and MAC Humid on the outer half. I lined my lower lash line with Urban Decay 24/7 in Mildew, and the smudged it out with the 3rd shade on the right column of Wet n’ Wild Comfort Zone. I reckon that’s enough green even for Saint Patty’s!

  52. Alison says:

    I love the *idea* of green eye shadow, but it never looks as good as I think it will when I actually wear it.

  53. shusheshe says:

    My favourite fried food is probably onion rings.

  54. Caitlin says:

    I am wearing my Wet’n’Wld dark green eyeliner. As someone with blue eyes and pale skin, I reallly don’t feel that olive eyeshadow is an option, and that constitutes the majority of green eyeshadows. Of course, if you know of any good, bright emerald eyeshadows recommendations are accepted. ๐Ÿ™‚

  55. Phil says:

    Oh I love st patricks day to just go out and get hammered with BEER you normally don’t drink! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Im actually wearing green pijamas lol this was not planned

  58. Danielle says:

    I love green eyeshadow – just usually not the neon kind.

  59. Tran says:

    My favorite fried food would have to be tempura and happy St. Patrick’s day to you & Tabs!

  60. Xero says:

    I wore green eyeshadow for the first time a few days ago…it was a pretty tame olive/khaki color. I don’t usually stray from neutrals when it comes to eyeshadow.

  61. Katrina says:

    No green makeup for me, just my bright kelly green tee!

  62. Kelly says:

    My favorite fried food would probably be hot wings! They’re fried, right? ๐Ÿ˜› And yes, I’m wearing a green shirt today!

  63. Kim Cole says:

    Happy St Patty’s Day to all the Irish out there! Tabs is Irish, right?!!!!

  64. Kim Cole says:

    Also tweeted! @kimpcole

  65. Belladatura says:

    I have green eyes, so I’m always wearing green! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m also wearing UD Stash eyeliner just to cover my bases. Hold the green beer and pass the Black & Tans!

  66. jen. says:

    I didn’t end up copying your green manicure because I got distracted. Need to do something so I can look presentable tomorrow though. It’s my niece’s first birthday party!

  67. lisa brown says:

    I love to wear green shadow, and have green shadow on right now for St. Patrick’s Day!

  69. Bel says:

    Wore green eyeshadow yesterday, and loved it! It really complimented my brown eyes ๐Ÿ™‚

  70. Jennifer A. says:

    I’m at work until 3. It’s that time of year when it’s amazingly warm out (mid ’70s) and yet the indoor heating is still happening. Not a good situation for me! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

  71. Christina says:

    I carry a green water bottle with me almost everywhere I go!

  72. Agata says:

    A giveaway and Starbucks? It doesn’t get better than that. Happy St Patrick’s Day!!!

    Have a wonderful day everybody!

  74. Charity says:

    I love Sephora!

  75. Anitacska says:

    To go with the theme of the day, just want to say I’ve been to Dublin once and it is such a lovel city. ๐Ÿ™‚ The Irish are really nice too.

  86. PS says:

    Happy Saturday/Happy St. Patricks Day!

    Have you ever had a green beer?


    Are you wearing anything green today?


    Have you ever found a four-leaf clover?

    I just recently starting wearing green eyeshadow & it looks really pretty, especially with a soft gold towards the inner part of the eyelid & gold eyeliner.

    Have a great day everyone.

    St. Paddy’s day is always such a wild day on campus…

  117. Lucy says:

    I’m going to have corned beef and cabbage today. My girlfriend put the corned beef in the slow cooker with some potatoes. I’m going to boil up some cabbage. I usually only have it once a year. I don’t know why because I love the stuff. I’m not Irish but my girlfriend is part Irish. That’s our Irish thing to do for the day!

    Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! I love eating fish and chips! Yummy!!!

  124. Karen F says:

    I love green shadow and nail polish so I did a double whammy on the green! I’m wearing Zoya Holly with INM northern lights over it for a green rainbow look on my nails and L’Oreal Infalliable shadow in Sage on my eyes! Have an awesome St. Patty’s day and have a green beer for me!

  125. Roxanne brothers says:

    Fav food today corn beef cabbage and potatoes

  126. Nicole says:

    Love green eyeshadow, but still on the hunt for the perfect one. Maybe an emerald green version of the solar bits MAC had a long time ago…

  127. Tara says:

    Had my first black and tan for St Patrick’s Day!

  128. Cass says:

    Yesterday was my birthday. When I was younger, I was glad it was not on St Patricks Day. Then when I turned 21, that all changed!

    I just got back from Starbucks, but thanks for the offer. ๐Ÿ™‚

  129. Kimberly says:

    happy st. patricks day!

  132. Isabel says:

    It’s so warm and sunny today where I live! I’m going to spend my weekend enjoying the festivities with friends and family~

  133. Jennifer says:

    รƒโ€ฐirinn go Brรƒยกch! Married to a real off-the-boat Irishman meself. First St. Paddy’s Day he was in the USA (Boston) he was shocked at the green beer and general revelry. Back home in Cork, this day was more of a religious holiday with church going and I guess being grateful that St. Patrick had driven all the snakes out of Ireland. He’s in London this day and I imagine he just might find an Irish Bar and pop in for a wee pint of Guiness rather than attend church services–just an inkling I having.

  134. Jenn says:

    The last time I had fish and chips was when I was studying abroad in England. Heard it was the dish to eat, so my friends and I split a plate. It was bland, so it was a bit of a disappointment.

  135. Hannah S. says:

    Can’t wait to make guinness beef stew tonight! ๐Ÿ˜€ Happy St. Pat’s!

  136. Joy says:

    Happy St Patrick’s Day to all like me, who are Irish in their souls.

  137. Melissa says:

    I just applied for a job at Sephora! Wish me luck ๐Ÿ™‚

  138. nabel says:

    its finals week!!!

  139. mn says:

    I’m not a fan of fried food – instead, I make it a point to cook corned beef and cabbage for the holiday. Enjoy your chips.

  140. tabby says:

    Green Day

  141. Julie says:

    We don’t celebrate St. Patrick’s Day here but sometimes I wish we did, so that I could wear this bright green dress that I have. I’m too shy to wear it!

  142. Megan says:

    Favorite fried food is calamari. Green is my favorite color so definitely wearing today!

  143. Lisa K. says:

    Yesterday I almost bought a green workout tee for today’s spin class. ..But the color was not becoming! I got pale yellow instead..Oh well!

  144. Marta Sousa says:

    I love your blog!! ๐Ÿ™‚


  145. angela says:

    Finally sleeping in this morning. It’s been forever since I slept till 8am!

  358. LauraA says:

    It’s actually been too long since I’ve had fish and chips–might have to hunt some down, later today……….

    I love green eyeshadow, however. Having red hair, I usually use a lime/light green shadow pencil during the spring and summer, and revert to darker forest/pine green shadows in the fall and winter.

    Hope everyone had a great day yesterday, and a good weekend thus far. Thanks for another great giveaway opportunity, Karen!

  359. Kristie says:

  363. Amie F says:

    I love many fried foods but my favorite is probably my Mom’s fried chicken -yummy!

  364. Katherine says:

    I didn’t have time to do a green manicure, but I wore a dark green dress and used the new L’Oreal Infallible shadow in Golden Sage as eyeliner. It was quite fun. ๐Ÿ™‚

  365. Lindsay says:

    I wore a green shirt that a cute guy at the gym said was cool.

  366. Maria says:

    I wear green eyeshadow ALL the time! Mainly because it makes my dark brown eyes look awesome! Also my favorite fried food are “bacalaitos” whic are flat, crispy, cod fish fritters. Completely unhealty (like most fried things) but absolutely delicious!

  367. Jess says:

    I had corned beef and cabbage yesterday ๐Ÿ™‚ and there is enough left over for today.

  372. Emily says:

    I started reading Hunger Games yesterday! I was hooked right away!

  373. Caitlin says:

    I didn’t have green nail polish so I layered a blue cream and a yellowish sparkle and got the coolest color!

  374. Felis says:

    Green beer is gross. Shamrock shakes are nasty. I don’t like corned beef and cabbage smells like a Godzilla fart.

    I made Guinness stew instead!

  375. Maggie says:

    I wear green eyeshadow allll the time. It’s one of my favorite colors!

    I just started reading Hunger Games for the first time – I’m about 100 or so pages into the first one, and it’s totally grabbed me. I’m trying to avoid looking at the cast list until I’m done with them, haha.

  376. Karen says:

    I cooked my own corned beef and cabbage with baby potatoes and carrots at home yesterday. Yum! Wish there would have been some left-overs…

  377. Christy says:

    The weather has been so beautiful here lately. Yesterday we all wore green, drank beer, and enjoyed the day. Doesn’t get better than good beer and good friends!

  378. Crystal says:

    What are your thoughts on that qvc miracle of maracuja set? I saw the picture you posted of it

  379. Alexandra says:

    I was having dinner with my mum on thursday.And the converation came round to st patricks day and she told me that he hated women,as he was gay and women wanted what he wanted.
    Might be something worth thinking about,as so many people go crazy for st patricks day. Do you really want to celebrate a man that hated women ?

  380. Kaoyee says:

    I forgot to paint my nails green yesterday! I have some pretty awesome green polishes too. Argh! Anyway I would feel better if I won this giveaway ๐Ÿ™‚

    french fries!

  407. Nicole says:

    I remember finding a four leaf clover as a young girl. I think I drank green beer once in my early 20s. I didn’t wear green for St. Patrick’s day this year (not a flattering color on me, you know?), but luckily no one pinched me.

  408. I’m now completely vegetarian, but I used to eat fish – I can’t tell you how much I miss good fish and chips, all vinegarey and wrapped in newspaper. Now that you’ve brought them up I’m going to be thinking about them ALL DAY. Sigh.

    I do a fabulous Riverdance impersonation if you get me drunk/silly enough – very, very few people have seen it, but those who have certainly remember it.

  409. I did find a four leaf clover once, but it was in a scavenger hunt in the form of a very large & green rice krispie treat…does that count? ๐Ÿ˜›

    I did find a four leaf clover when I was in 5th grade, one of my happiest day of my life.

  411. Christen says:

    Hey Karen ๐Ÿ™‚ I actually have NEVER worn green makeup before, that is until this week! I was browsing the Almay section at Wal-Mart cause I had a coupon, and I stumbled on the most beautiful dark emerald green pencil liner. It’s actually made to enhance hazel eyes, and mine are blue, but I think the deep jade would honestly look amazing on any skin tone and eye color. The pictures on the almay site don’t do the color justice, but here’s the link anyway! And your blog is my favorite, I honestly read either new or archived posts every single day!! Bye ๐Ÿ™‚ http:/

  412. Liz says:

    I have never tried and never will try green-tinted beer.

  413. Ann says:

    French fries are delicious.

  414. Rozae says:

  415. Tess says:

Really yummy — I do enjoy cabbage although I never make it at home since my husband abhors the stuff. Second, I will mention how much I enjoy seeing Tabs. He is one handsome man! I have two cats & adore them — they are a brother & sister & their names are Evelyn and Leo. I love my kitties! Thank you for the opportunity to win this prize.

    Awesome Giveaway idea Karen!! In response to your favorite/best beauty campaigns post…I know its not exactly a ‘campaign’, but I think that Valentino consistently has some of the most beautiful runway makeup out there, and hair too. It’s my style to a T..simple yet polished, very neutral/natural with hints of color and shimmer. Overall, a very ethereal neutral look, but always very current as well. Anyways, your blog is amazing ๐Ÿ™‚ There’s a pic of the Valentino Spring 2012 runway makeup at the very bottom of the blog post below…
