A Makeup and Beauty Blog giveaway
Comment to win a Sephora eGift card

Good morning, glory. πŸ™‚ Let me be one of the first people in your life to wish you a happy Saturday. Not much going on for me other than cleaning, grocery shopping and relaxing…not necessarily in that order.


I figure I shouldn’t do anything too strenuous before the Bay to Breakers tomorrow. I’m setting two separate alarms for 4 o’clock tomorrow morning, just to be safe.

The costumes that some of the runners wear are a big part of the race. There’s even a costume contest. Last year a group of people won for their royal centipede of 13 people, which had newlyweds Kate and William, and a royal posse of the Archbishop, Prince Harry, Prince Beatrice and others.

I’m all for expressing yourself — daily — but I really, really hope that everyone on the shuttle tomorrow morning is fully and completely clothed (the race is famous for its nude runners) because, seriously, I donÒ€ℒt think I could handle smalltalk with a naked stranger at 5:30 in the morning. “So…is this your first Bay to Breakers? My, that is an interesting tattoo on your bum of a phoenix rising from the ashes… Boy, these seats are cold.” LOL!

Well, it’s that time again. Time for you to get lucky and hopefully win today’s Sephora giveaway.

What folks are saying…

“Thanks so much, Karen. Just in case you were wondering what I got with it, I decided to go with the Clarisonic Mia–I’ve been wanting it for years now, but have never purchased it because of the price. Your eCard helped me finally buy it! I look forward to using it. Thanks again!”

“Shut the front door! OMG Karen, you have made my day. πŸ™‚ I’m sick in bed with the flu and this has just cheered me up immensely!!!!!!!! BTW, I’m the one that sent you that pic of my pug in a wig a few weeks back LOL! Thanks again, honestly, I’m beyond giddy right now.”

“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)

“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.”

  3. Danielle says:

    I prefer non-waterproof mascara 95% of the time. In the summer if I know I will be swimming or attending a wedding where tears may be involved I will opt for a waterproof formula. Most of the time though I don’t like how hard they are to remove- like hulk smash hard. πŸ˜‰

    Nothing on my lips so far – getting ready for a morning Muay Thai class! πŸ™‚

  5. Chelsey says:

    I prefer non-waterproof mascara since it’s easier to get off. I never really had a problem with it smudging or anything. πŸ™‚

  6. Katrin says:

    I am a big fan of chocolate milk. But I always make it with almond milk. so yummy!

  7. Joanna says:

    I’m having a cup of chocolate milk as I’m typing πŸ™‚ Happy Wknd

  8. Lola AM says:

    I love chocolate milk!!! Had some yesterday. My cousin and I have started walking on the weekends.

  9. Jenn says:

    Hmm…for sure waterproof mascara. Being a nurse and working in a dry environment, it brings out all the oil in my skin and I find waterproof mascara doesn’t wear off or flake off as quickly….

  10. Mariee says:

    I have Neutrogena Naturals lip balm on my lips.

  11. Wynell says:

    I could never run a naked race lol

  12. Zhar says:

    I’m going shopping then doing my nails… today is a day for relaxation

  13. Alaina says:

    I actually don’t generally wear mascara at all, I have naturally long, thick lashes and I wear glasses so sometimes mascaras will end up rubbing off on my lenses! I do tightline to give the impression of fuller lashes though.

  14. Tiffanie says:

    Race naked?! Are you kidding?! I could never do that!

  15. Nicole says:

    I’m in the search of a new mascara that doesn’t weigh down my eyelashes!

  16. I haven’t ever run a race, but when I was living in the Bay Area I volunteered for the AIDS Lifecycle (set-up, registration, and race kickoff) three years. (And I continue to sponsor two riders annually.) That, and walking around my neighborhood with my headphones, are about as exercise-y as I get!

    I’m sort of working this weekend: I’m continuing to port content into the new database, after the recent site upgrade and redesign. Other than that, no, no work for me πŸ™‚ (At least, nothing that earns me money or where I have to be on someone else’s timetable.)

    Waterproof mascara, always, definitely. Without waterproof mascara I have racoon-eyes within an hour! Sad, but true.

    I am still getting to know my new kitten! I’d forgotten how energetic kittens can be when they’re seven months old. Justin is all legs and paws – he’s going to be a great big solid social I-wanna-snuggle-now cat when he’s fully grown! )My other cats have adjusted to him, but they still occasionally look at me as if to say, “You know, Mom, we were never that insane. -=NEVER=-.”)

  17. Jennifer A. says:

    I prefer non-waterproof mascara. I already have a difficult time getting that off at night – I couldn’t handle waterproof.

  18. Christin says:

    Someone seen the movie Attila with Gerard Butler, he is soo sexy πŸ˜‰

  21. terry says:

    i’m still trying to use up the mascaras i got from my trip to korea, but i don’t really know whether they’re waterproof or not, or even what they’re targeted at (volume, curl, lenth, etc), LOL…

    Hopefully its my lucky day, I just got a turtle he’s so cute his name is Franklin we are getting another one today her I get to name her ima name her Sophie how cute!

  43. Christine says:

    Running naked sounds … All kinds of painful *yikes*

  44. Ceci says:

    Revlon Lip Butters are the best hybrid gloss-lipsticks. It’s superior to ones I’ve purchased at Sephora and department stores.

  45. cece says:

    Im addicting to Revlon Lip Butters especially the shade Berry Smoothie. i get lots of attention from what it does for my lips.

  46. E. says:

    No workout buddy – I tend to talk too much if I have a workout partner!

    Have an awesome race, i might run the Pasadena marathon as a bandit, for a few miles, to cheer on my friend who is running it officially.

  56. Melissa says:

    I’ve sort of been on a makeup slump lately. I love the items I have, and still apply it very happily, but I just haven’t been in the mood to purchase anything new. Good for my wallet, but it makes me feel a little sad anyway.

  57. Kelly says:

    i am really starting to love becca cosmetics! wish they still had them at sephora!
    any new becca collections on the horizon?

  58. Ana says:

    I really only wear waterproof mascara if I think I am going to really need it. The mascaras I have been using lately (Josie Maran’s GOGO and Hourglass noir) never seem to make a mess If my eyes water a little. I have even jumped in the pool with the Hourglass one and it didnt even smudge

  59. lesleyk says:

    No, i would never run a race naked. I do as little as possible naked, but that’s just me.

  60. Helen Stockwell says:

    LOL! I would never run a race naked either!

  61. Mary says:

    I’m in love with the Naked 2 palette, I’m just dying for some matte nude colors!

  62. Yukari says:

    I always buy waterproof mascara because it holds my curl better! I’m wearing Benefit Posietint on my lips today πŸ™‚

  63. Janet says:

    So, I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus from MACs recent collections. Seems that the launches the’ve been putting out in the past year have been so blah and unoriginal. That’s was my exact feeling when I saw the swatches/pics of the summer collection “Hey, sailor”. That was until I walked by the MAC counter at Nordstrom and got to try them out myself. I ended up pre-ordering 2 lipsticks, 3 e/s and 2 powerpoint eye pencils. Gah!!!

  64. Agata says:

    Hi Karen!

    For some reason I thought the race was today….:) As you already know I am working all weekend, super early hours….No day off till next Wednesday!

    I only wear waterproof mascara, my eyes are sensitive and water a lot especially now with the allergy season. I just bought a new L’oreal Fiber Faux Lash Mascara at a whim yesterday, going to try it out today!

    Have a great weekend!

  65. Vicki says:

    I just made an offer on a house (first time ever!!), so my beauty budget is limited! Would happily take a gift card!

  66. Vivi says:

    Waterproof mascara is a must for hot summer day!

  67. Katrina says:

    I prefer waterproof mascara because it holds the curl of my eyelashes better.

  68. Ly Thanh Thao says:

    I wanna go to Tai tai 4 river eco logde Cambodia real bac

  69. Beth says:

    You were smart to set 2 alarms. I had to wake up at 3:30 on Wednesday for an early flight for an important client meeting. For some reason I couldn’t settle down to sleep and I watched the clock from midnight on. At 3:30, the alarm didn’t go off. I thought it was odd but figured I must have dozed off and hit snooze. I went ahead and got up to get ready. When I got home I looked and I had set the alarm for 3:30 pm. I got chills when I realized how close I was to oversleeping and missing the meeting. From now on, I will set a second alarm!!!

  70. tiffany says:

    Hi karen
    I can’t wait to get new shoes so I can start C25K and hopefully be able to run a marathon someday.

  71. Nikki says:

    I prefer non waterproof mascara, the waterproof kind makes my lashes feel brittle and it’s so hard to get off.

  72. Brooke says:

    I find that waterproof mascara is more difficult to apply and I don’t like the texture when applied, so I just always worry about possibly looking racoony πŸ™‚

  73. Lisa says:

    Have fun tomorrow! Today is all about cleaning out the garage and getting it organized. We moved into a house 3 weeks ago and haven’t done anything with it. At least it will be done after today (fingers crossed).

  74. eRiN says:

    While you’re doing Bay to Breakers I’ll be sleeping – in preparation for the flight back from England to the Bay :/

  75. Let says:

    I prefer non-waterproof mascara, because it’s easier to remove. Besides, waterproof and non-waterproof mascara both work the same on me.

  76. Ali says:

    I’m working this weekend!

  77. Cara says:

    Your post on the essie neon polishes got me so excited! Gonna have to get a couple.

  78. Chelsea says:

    No plans on running any races! I like non-waterproof mascara, but it doesn’t hold the curl as well. I rotate between DiorShow and CoverGirl Lash Blast 24 Hour, and the latter really holds a curl and doesn’t get as brittle as most long-wearing mascaras! I’m curious about the new Maybelline Ultra-Plush mascara though… Mascara is my favorite makeup, and I always have way too many open at a time!

  79. Kristi says:

    Can’t even imagine trying to talk to a naked runner! Will hope for a minimum of nudity tomorrow.
    I prefer non-waterproof mascara for the ease of removal. I do have a waterproof mascara on hand though for situations that will require it (situations where the probability of me crying is high) – weddings, funerals, etc.
    Enjoy your weekend!

  80. Megan says:

    I had chocolate milk last week, actually!

  81. Jennifer says:

    I’ve got Revlon’s lip butter on my lips..these are great!

  82. monika says:

    Non waterproof. The waterproof kind is too harsh and pain to take off at night.

  83. Sunita says:

    I am only 21 this year, but I want the Clarisonic Mia so bad! I am also obsessed with lipsticks. I bought two of them off the Gratobian website just recently! And, I am really pleased with my buys! πŸ˜€


  84. Kim D. says:

    Nothing on my lips today.

  85. Amanda Sakovitz says:

    I prefer non waterproof mascara bc the waterproof seems to hard to get off, at least to me

  86. Daniela says:

    I’m wearing MAC’s Pink Poodle lipglass on my lips today. It’s so happy, bright, & summery!

  87. Bel P. says:

    I told myself I’m taking a break from makeup, because in reality my beauty budget can’t handle my obsession, but Revlon just came out with these new Kissable balm stains, and I want more! I have one in Honey, and I’m addicted now (>_

  88. Rikki says:

  90. Mikhaela K. says:

    I’m so proud of my Saturday morning- I did an Insanity workout (then ruined it all by eating the best breakfast on EARTH! Corned beef hash and eggs, mmm)!

    Karen, I think you would be proud- last night, I went to a military ball with my boyfriend (he’s in the army) and I wore Lady Danger on my lips and ROCKED IT! i love how glamorous red lipstick makes me feel.

  91. Heidi says:

    Bobbi Brown Treatment Lip Shine in Nectarine is the lip of the day for me.

  92. karen says:

    chocolate milk, ugh. Hot chocolate yes, but the idea of regular old chocolate milk turns my stomach (which of course makes no sense considering that hot chocolate isn’t all that different). In any case, I haven’t had chocolate milk since I was a child

  93. Elin LLB says:

    One day I’ll win.

  94. Audrey says:

    Ugh had a horrible day today πŸ™
    Hopefully everything turns out ok tomorrow

  98. Stef Smith says:

    My 4th grader went to Sacramento yesterday for a field trip and she looooooved it! So now we’re planning a trip to Sacramento this Summer! I’m excited about that!

  99. Nicole says:

    I definitely would not run a race naked. I don’t have a workout buddy – my time in the gym is my “me” time to unwind and process the day.

  100. hazakaza says:

    I actually just got two workout buddies! We’re running together, and I’m psyched about it.

  101. Amanda says:

    I’m not really a runner but I think I’d remain fully clothed if I did take it up! My workout buddy is my husband (we’ve got two exercise bikes in our basement) and I’ve got on No 7 Lip Liner in Nude and Revlon’s Colorburst Lipgloss in Peony on my lips. Good luck with your race!

  109. Kayla says:

    I usually prefer non-waterproof unless I know I’m going to have a particularly long day and then I’ll go for waterproof

  110. Joy says:

    I use the Clarins product that makes regular mascara waterproof.

  111. Sheila says:

    Revlon’s grow luscious is my fave mascara for the moment. prefer non-WP!

  112. D says:

    I usually use both non-waterproof and waterproof. I first put the regular mascara then on my second and third coat it’s the waterproof. It’s much more easy to remove plus my curls hold much longer than just using a regular mascara. πŸ™‚

    I prefer non-waterproof mascara over waterproof because I have very few lashes and they tend to fall out or break with harsh mascara.

    Hi Karen!
    We (the husband) are house hunting! It’s been like three months and I think finaly we decided wich house we want! It’s our first house, because since we got married we only can afford renting! But I’m very excited and we are saving for the kitchen a/c floors etc But I’m so so Happy and Thankful!!!

  138. Mary says:

    I would definitely never run a race naked. That seems like it would be very uncomfortable.

  139. Melissa says:

    It’s very hot here this weekend so I’m staying inside and doing a mani/pedi. I’m using the color ‘I need a refresh-mint’ by Wet n Wild. It’s a dark tiffany blue.

    OMG I would never run naked! There would be too much wiggling and jiggling going on!

  142. Brenda says:

    No naked running for me, thanks! No running at all actually…

  143. Jaymie says:

    I’m gonna win one of these days!!!! I can do it!!! Lol! Anyway, I prefer water resistant mascara. For some reason, I used to prefer waterproof until I heard that they used bat poo in it. Don’t know if that’s true or not but that quickly converted me to non waterproof macaras! Lol!

  144. Baba says:

    I LOVE waterproof mascara. I wear concealer under my eye; it never fails that regular mascara smears down. Waterproof mascara stays put which makes me happy!

    LANCOME Bi-Facil mascara remover will work easily and beautifully to remove waterproof mascara.

    Now mascara stays put with waterproof and is removed easily with Lancome Bi-Facil mascara remover!!

    I’d SO do a naked 5k if it weren’t for my running nemesis: Lord Von E Cup and the Jiggling of Doom. Seriously, it hurts just to think about >

  146. Janet says:

    Good luck tomorrow, and hopefully everyone is clothed *lol*

  147. Sophie says:

    I don’t know about that naked race; does wearing running shoes count? And, yeah, I’d need to wear my bra. Just the thought of running with no bra hurts.

  148. Hetal says:

    I wear benefit’s it’s real mascara as i am in LOVE with it! Really makes your lashes long and full πŸ™‚ one of the best and also obsessed with dior’s mascara =)

  149. Kasiah says:

  152. Wendy P says:

    I’m testing out the Revlon Colorstay Nail line this week. I just painted my nails and am cruising your blog while they dry! πŸ™‚

    I also tweeted the giveaway!

  153. Jenny says:

    Oh my god, running a race naked?! Talk about a nightmare. Not only would that be horribly embarrassing, but ah, I’m a little bigger up top if ya catch me… yeah, that’d be painful. I’ll stick to walking fully clothed, thanks. LOL Hope you have a great weekend!

  154. Shana says:

    I’m a writer and have a deadline on Monday so I am working like a gherkin!

  155. auroragyps says:

    I had chocolate milk last week, as I tend to drink it often to satisfy my chocolate cravings, and it was Ovaltine’s Classic Chocolate Malt flavor. I also recently had a chocolate egg cream that I made with Hershey’s syrup & Goya Coconut Soda (it was ok), but can’t remember if that was before or after the Ovaltine.

    I drink way more Classic Malt Ovaltine than any chocolate milk. I find it very relaxing & soothing, so when I’m uptight, I make a big glass of it.

  156. Tania says:

    I am not wearing anything on my lips today because I am sick πŸ™ But I would love to get a new lipstick and this gift card would be perfect for it! Have a great weekend!

  157. Patty says:

    Smith’s Minted Rose Lip Balm for me today.

  158. Nina T says:

    Wow the Breakers sounds very interesting. I don’t think there’s anything like it here on the East Coast. What an experience you’re gonna have!! Here’s to Living Life Vividly!

  159. Kelsey says:

    Would you (or have you ever) run a race naked?
    Good lord, no!

    Do you have a workout buddy?
    Does my cat count? He likes to lie on the floor underneath my exercise bike and bat at my feet as they turn on the pedals. πŸ™‚

    What are you wearing on your lips today?
    Right now, nothing. Later, possibly lip balm.

    Do you prefer waterproof or non-waterproof mascara (and why)?
    Non-waterproof. I don’t wear mascara very often, and it’s easier to take off and less likely to irritate my eyes.

    Are you working this weekend?
    Nope! I saw “The Avengers” last night and it was great!

    When was the last time you had chocolate milk?
    A couple of years ago… Now I want some!

  160. Christine says:

    The last time I had chocolate milk was in elementary school! And that was.. 14 years ago O_O.

  161. nekosan says:

    I prefer mascara that’s at least water resistant, because i have a lot of allergies, and my eyes are very often itchy and watering.

  162. Silka says:

    Have a worderful time tomorrow. Hope it will be a sunny day!

  163. onegreatsmile says:

    It’s such a gorgeous day today, I’m celebrating nature with NO MAKEUP!

  164. Yesenia says:

    Counting down the days till I have freedom this summer :)!

  167. I’m wearing Dior Gold Sunrise on my lips today! Love the texture and sparkle!

  168. Mandy says:

    My back is killing me!

  169. Zoey says:

    I had some chocolate almond milk the other day. It was quite tasty.

  170. Judy says:

    Picked up a bottle of Sally Hansen’s Mellow Yellow and couldn’t help but also get a bottle of the Mint Sorbet! Hello summer, i’m ready for you!! πŸ˜€

  171. Kate & Zena says:

    Chocolate milk sounds so good…..but I have no chocolate! DARN!

  172. LauraA says:

    Chocolate milk? Now that you mention it, I’ll probably have some tonight. We keep chocolate (powdered and syrup) around the house, because my mother loves adding chocolate to coffee whenever she visits.

    Thanks for another great giveaway opportunity, Karen!

  173. Sara says:

    I probably last had chocolate milk when I was in elementary school 28 years ago.

  174. Patricia says:

    I had chocolate milk the other day I just switched over from cow milk to Silk and I love it plus is good for you πŸ™‚

  175. sweeks1980 says:

    I love tubular mascara, since it seems gentler than regular waterproof and it has staying power (very important since I have oily lids).

    This weekend is definitely a working weekend. I’m updating the new website we have at work and then doing some writing for my dissertation.

  176. Stephanie Y says:

    Gonna keep trying till I win πŸ™‚ First 90 degree day of summer in my neck of the woods.

  177. Trisha says:

    hopefully I win! Thanks for putting up yet another giveaway (:

  178. Katherine says:

    Only 2 weeks left until I move 2500 miles to Canada. It’s crunch time!

  179. Amie F says:

    I’m not much of a runner so no races for me.

  180. mrsshukra says:

    Burt’s Bees tinted balm is lovely!

  181. Katrina says:

    Just picked up a few things from Chanel’s summer collection. Looove the bronzer!

  182. Paula says:

    I drink Amazing Grass chocolate green superfood mix with almond milk. Not exactly chocolate milk, but it’s super healthy.

  183. Ashley says:

    The new NYX Black Label Lipsticks are kind of amazing…

  184. quimerula says:

    I won’t run naked. Unless it’s after Alexander Skarsgard, of course.

  185. Joy says:

    I wouldn’t run naked. Not so much because of the naked part but because I don’t run. πŸ™‚

  186. I definitely prefer non-waterproof mascara. I don’t know if it’s just me, but I struggle HARD when trying to remove waterproof mascaras. It doesn’t matter what eye-makeup remover I’m using (I’ve tried Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover [my usual go-to], various oils, and even Lancome Bi-Facil–all to no avail), I just can’t get that stuff off! Yes, I soak a cotton pad, leave it on my eyes for a few minutes, and attempt to wipe off. Nope. Honestly, is it just me?? I get soooo frustrated!! And that sucky thing is, I have extremely short, sparse lashes–so I could really benefit from the lasting hold of a waterproof formula–but because of my sparse lashes, I really can’t afford to lose 5 lashes every time I go to remove a waterproof formula.

  187. Y. says:

    i had chocolate soymilk last week:)
    i’m allergic to dairy…

  188. Veronica says:

    I’m wearing mac watch me simmer lipstick… I bought it after seeing the gorgeous pics you posted of it! Thanks Karen πŸ˜€

  189. Neema says:

    I keep telling myself that someday I will participate in a race.

  190. Jennifer says:

    Just spent the afternoon working in the garden, got 90% of it planted, hooray!

  191. bin du says:

    planning a bit of a makeup spree in about 2 weeks so decided I should try and use a couple products up, thought I was almost done one of my concealors (it has a doe foot applicator) so I decided to remove the stopper and little did I know I had heaps of product left. This is the concealor that never ends….

  192. Rosa says:

    Just got back from hiking! The weather today in Cleveland is beautiful!

  193. Jamie says:

    I prefer waterproof mascara! I have oily skin and so every non-waterproof mascara will smudge on me! Also, I wear contacts and just in case my eyes get irritated and watery, my mascara will stay in place!

  194. erika says:

    I wish I could get into running, but I’ve never really enjoyed it much… If i did run a race though, I don’t think I’d do it naked… I’d need some boob support at least! πŸ™‚

  195. KPrice says:

    I am wearing plenty of lip balm with SPF along with waterproof mascara cause we’re staining the deck and building a new vegetable garden. I can’t wait until it’s done! Enjoy your race and have a good weekend. Thanks for a chance at a giveaway.

  196. Auden says:

    Hey we live near each other (sort of).

  197. Hohete says:

    I’m just wearing lip balm today. Have a great weekend!

  198. BB says:

    Admiring your Bay to Breakers fortitude as I try to work up the will to get to the gym once this week!

  199. Clara says:

    praying I’ll win one day πŸ™‚

  200. Theresa says:

    I used to onlywear waterproof mascara because I only wore that stuff while going dancing. Now I prefer non waterproofs because it is so much more managable. Waterproof mascara is no joke, that stuff is hard to remove

  201. April says:

    Picked up BB Stone e/s this week; gorgeous!

  202. Dr Melissa says:

    Love the blog! Pray for Free Syria

  203. Christina R says:

    I should start wearing waterproof, its hot today (Its 89 by me).

  204. Denniesha says:

    Love Chocolate Milke and I would never ever ever run nude!!!

  205. Sadhana says:

    I love chocolate milk, and drink it regularly! I recently discovered the Silk version and to my surprise I like it too – which is better for my health anyway.

  206. Audrey says:

    Waterproof mascara all the way! It’s really hard to keep my eyelashes curled, but I’ve found that applying waterproof mascara right after curling them helps ’em stay in place!

  207. Andrea says:

    karen i retweet these every week! i’m dying to get the urban decay super saturated pencils! have a good weekend! hi tabs!

  208. Anitacska says:

    I would definitely not run a race naked! Not just because I wouldn’t want to show off my wobbly bits, but also because my wobbly bits need a lot of support, lol!

  209. Laci says:

    I finish my bachelor’s degree (FINALLY!) May 28th and celebrate my 33rd birthday May 30th. How awesome it would be to win. πŸ˜€

  210. Ashley says:

    27 minutes till I get off work!

  211. Renee says:

    Waterproof. I wish I could wear it everyday to keep my lashes curled but it dries them out and makes them fall out when I remove it so I only use it for occasions when I really need it.

  212. Lily says:

    I am so happy with the weather πŸ™‚

  213. aclearcutsign says:

    Celebrated my sis’ bday earlier with lunch (italian, yum!) and homemade chocolate cake. L.A. weather was nice!

  214. Demi says:

    i just got a husky!! πŸ™‚

  215. blauriche says:

    I’ve sort of been on a fragrance binge lately. My favorite new discovered are both from the Les Exclusifs de Chanel collection: Sycomore and Coromandel. OMG I LOVE THEM. It’s like they transport me to a magical fairy tale place.

  216. Melissa says:

    I prefer waterproof mascara. That way I’m prepared for anything. The last thing I want to worry about during the day is having my mascara run or smudge.

  217. Simina says:

    I just discovered your blog today! πŸ™‚

  218. Chanelle says:

    June 6th is going to be my 6 year anniversary of bad health…I got sick on 6/6/06 and have never been the same. The date creeps me out!

  219. Nicole says:

    Waterproof mascara forever!

  220. Laura says:

    Today I’m wearing NARS Train Bleu on my lips. I love vampy colours so I wear them all year round no matter what season of the year it is. I just wear what I like πŸ™‚

  221. Missy M says:

    I’ve always preferred waterproof mascara, but have found in the past 6 months I have to use non-waterproof to keep my lashes from breaking off

  222. Anna says:

    I prefer waterproof mascara

  223. Kelly says:

    Its been a no makeup Saturday! Only used eos lip balm!

  224. Maria says:

    mmm…love chocolate milk…had some a few days ago

  225. Leticia V says:

    I love your blog. So helpful

  226. Shelly says:

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend Karen! =]

  227. Tamara B. says:

    I only wear non-waterproof mascara so much easier to take off

  228. Savannah says:

    I just went to Sephora today and bought Nars’ Orgams Illuminator, finally!

  229. Carissa says:

    i prefer waterproof mascara because it holds the curl best!

  230. Marisa Payne says:

    I could never run naked! Ever!

  231. Betony says:

    I attended a class hosted by Dior with makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff yesterday. As famous as this chick is, she was soooo nice and soooo funny. Learned that the reason the Olsen girls look so gorge in pics is they’re mouthing the word “prunes” while smiling . It makes the perfect pout and kicks the apples of your cheeks out. Who knew?

  232. laura says:

    i was wearing chanel rouge allure extrait de gloss in insolence earlier today.

  233. Christine says:

    Just heard Jade’s “Don’t walk away” and it brought me back to middle school!

  234. Jenny says:

    I have not used a non-waterproof mascara in forever!

  235. Justine says:

    I would never run a race naked — ouch!

  236. BooBooNinja says:

    Why is it that I can’t resist the urge to use my hands when my nails are still wet?

  237. Ris says:

    Wearing my Revlon Lip Butter in Peach Parfait today. Easy and natural.

  238. Lauren says:

    I had my first day of work today as a gate and concession worker at my pool! Wanting a little more coverage to even out my skin tone without feeling like I am suffocating under foundation in the humidity, I opted for a tinted moisturizer!

  239. Summer says:

    I wish I had a glass of chocolate milk right now! Or maybe some dark chocolate and red wine – for, um, the antioxidants. ;D

  240. Georgette says:

    Have fun tomorrow!

  241. Chelsey says:

    I would punch a lion in the face for a Sephora gift card. I feel like the only person on the planet who doesn’t own the Naked 2 palette. I feel like the kid who got invited to the biggest party all year and I can’t go.

  242. Megan says:

    Im not sure which Mac lipstick I should get today…..

  243. Naomi says:

    I want brownies lol.

  244. debbie says:

    Waterproof mascara, because even if allergies are destroying my eyes I can not go without mascara!

  245. Lisa Schnitzer says:

    I’m jumping on the mascara bandwagon for the question of the day. I prefer non-waterproof because it hurts my eyes to scrub the waterproof stuff off, and truthfully I prefer how the other looks. My two faves right now are Bare Escentuals Lengthen and Curling….fantastic, and Josie Maran Gogo Natural (I think that’s the name) which is very black and good for your lashes too! Side note — Jose Maran has become my favorite concealer EVER IN THE UNIVERSE. It’s the double pan of treatment and concealer. Fabuloso. And so are your contests Karen. Love the blog!

  246. SSB says:

    If I keep trying, maybe one day I’ll win…

  247. Melodyy says:

    I’m just wearing Jack Black Lip Balm πŸ™‚ Thanks Karen! Good luck tomorrow!

  249. Karen M. says:

    It’s been a great day!

  250. Shelby says:

    Hope you do well in your race! I can’t wait to run in the color run next year.

  251. Jasmine says:

    I do have a workout buddy but sometimes we slack off. I find it’s easier getting to the gym with a friend but I definitely work out harder by myself.

  252. Laura says:

    Today I’m wearing the Beaute liqui-gel stain in flouron. It looks neon orange in the tube, but comes out a very lovely shade of pink that you can use to stain your lips or cheeks, or both!

  253. Kaylyn says:

    i need a workout buddy!

  254. Stephanie says:

    I used to ALWAYS wear waterproof mascara, but now I just wear the regular CG LashBlast because it wears just as well as waterproof on me plus it’s MUCH easier to take off.

  255. Jennifer says:

    Just made the hour plus drive to my nearest Ulta for some shopping- why can’t there be an Ulta or Sephora a little closer? Maybe it’s a blessing, too easy to shop in those stores!

  256. JNO says:

    Looking for a new lip stain colour….any advice?

  257. gail says:

    Going to my nephew’s wedding tomorrow – so exicited.

  258. MMM says:

    Great weekend for me and I am only half way through it!

  259. Tierra says:

    Waterproof mascara all the way. Never know when you might shed a tear, lol. I am so sappy, commercials can make me tear up!

    Good luck and have fun at the race!!

    Thanks for the giveaway, as always! πŸ™‚

    I’ve got a pan of homemade lasagna cooling in the kitchen and the smell is driving me crazy! Wanna eat it asap, don’t wanna burn my mouth. Dilemma.

  264. Marian says:

    I’ve never run a race naked but my 2 sisters once put paper bags over their heads and ran down the street naked.

  265. steph b says:

    I had chocolate milk last weekend. Got it at the farmers market.

    I need a new skin regimen to help me look rested after my night shifts! πŸ™

  270. Tansy says:

    Ahh I have never even ran a real race…not to mention the naked part.

  271. Emily says:

    I think a naked race is definitely out of the question if only for the bounce factor.

  272. Genevieve G. says:

    Wearing Chapstick (like always) with Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Tutti Fruitti dabbed on top.

  273. Grace says:

    Just tried the Mac lip glass pink lemonade and loved it!

  274. Danielle says:

    Thanks for the giveaway, Karen!! I have been giving my lashes a break from mascara, because they were breaking off too frequently for my liking…it’s been hard, but hopefully it will be worth it!! Have a great weekend! πŸ™‚

  275. Naomi says:

    I would love love love to win …. I’m wearing Mac reel sexy lipstick today and so bummed that I didn’t get a back up cause I am always losing my lipsticks πŸ™ … hey have u noticed how much Mac has been repromoting their stuff??! What’s up with that? Where have all the colors gone?!!!! LOL take care and good luck to everyone

  276. Madelynn says:

    My best friend is trying real hard for me to become her workout buddy. It’s intimidating for me to work out with someone!

  277. Monika says:

    Waterproof all the way. I hate mascara runs if my eyes accidentally water up or I have a good cry for some reason. I don’t ever notice if they make my eyelashes crunchy because I feel like I’m never actually touching my eyelashes.

  278. Crystal says:

    We caught about 500-700 tadpoles off the pool cover over the last 3 days ! What a great start to Summer almost being here ! LOL.

  279. courtney b says:

  288. Jarucha says:

    I know it sounds so bad but I do not go to the gym.

  289. Xochil says:

    I like waterproof mascara because I tend to get watery eyes especially this time of year!

  290. Neha says:

    I’m wearing NARS Heat Wave on my lips … Right now, it seems like a whole new life to me..

  291. Mireya says:

    Today I wore a YSL Glossy Stain – #4 Mauve

  292. Lulu says:

    I’ve never used non waterproof mascara but I think I read in someone’s comment recently that waterproof makes your lashes weaker? Googling now!

  293. Joy P. says:

    I love waterproof mascaras! I use Lancome bi-facil to remove it easily πŸ™‚

  294. Step says:

    Non WP! Easier to remove. I do love how WP mascara holds a curl though.

  295. Inday says:

    I wore Red Racer over Cherry lipliner today!

    I’m totally craving some chocolate right now! πŸ˜€

  303. Deanna G. says:

    I would never, ever, ever run a race naked.

  304. DalaLuz says:

    Lately I am so emotionally tender that I am just too afraid to wear non-waterproof mascara LOL But sometimes it is good to let all that cry out.

  305. Jennifer says:

    I’ve lived in the Bay Area for about 13 years and somehow I’ve never been to Bay to Breakers….hmmmm…. Maybe next year!

  306. Nicole says:

    I prefer regular mascara because I like to be able to wash it off easily. I only use water proof if I’m swimming. Also I had chocolate milk Friday night, funny that you asked that because I haven’t had chocolate milk in forever before that. Have fun at the Bay to Breakers!

  307. Maureen says:

    I don’t like the waterproof mascara so I stick with regular.

  308. Tina says:

    I would never run a race naked!!!!

  309. Anna says:

    I’ve been using that tube mascara a lot lately because I hate having black under my eyes and I like pulling the tubes off of my eyelashes!

  310. Jane says:

    Maybe I skimmed this thread too fast. . . I keep reading about naked running AND waterproof mascara. Humm, I prefer regular mascara to waterproof and you probably won’t see me running naked .LOL. I would like to win the gift card, though.

  311. layla says:

    thank you, i am no craving chocolate milk! hehe

  312. Deb says:

    Hi Karen,

    I’m wearing Sail La Vie today and loving it!!! Thanks for doing this.

  313. katrina says:

    i really wished mac and sephora had international shipping. and it sucks that they only accept US credit cards/paypal for payment. πŸ™

  314. Sue C. says:

    Every time I wear regular mascara I’m reminded of why I mostly wear waterproof mascara – between spring allergies, summer “dewiness”, and fall/winter rain, I like my mascara on my eye lashes and nowhere else.

    Good luck with Bay to Breakers!

  315. Tuhina says:

    I can’t remember the last time I had chocolate milk! But I had a new flavor of Zico coconut water today – chocolate! It was delish! Does that count?

  316. christine says:

    hi karen! i’ve been using boscia products lately. would you recommend?

  317. Jane says:

    Have not had chocolate milk in years. Wish I had someone to exercise with. I think time would go faster and maybe keep me motivated. It’s hard to get up every morning and go out walking alone.

  318. Hannah S. says:

    I’m trying to grow plumeria in the PNW, so far so good! Here’s hoping they will bloom for me πŸ˜€

    Always waterproof mascara. Otherwise it’s raccoon eyes!

  324. Denise M says:

    no way on the naked run. I workout alone at home but i like to have someone keeping me accountable

  325. Maria says:

    I love water proof mascara. I find that it lasts a bit longer and the normal kind.

  326. Nora says:

    waterproof mascara, always! it holds curl πŸ™‚

  327. Denise says:

    I used to only wear waterproof mascara, but as I get older and lazier I find the non-waterproof easier to remove. So now I only use waterproof on very humid days.

  328. JMay says:

    Today I”m wearing on my lips MAC impassioned!

  329. Alix says:

    On the lips today: Nars sheer lipstick in Damage.

  331. Kathy says:

    Nothing like a beautiful pink shade of lipstick for the Summer…

  332. Molly SC says:

    What a gorgeous day today…. the kitkats and I will be lounging sun-side all day.

  333. Cassidey says:

    I do have a workout buddy and having one both helps us a lot!

  334. Mina says:

    Karen Rules!

    As always, no doubt πŸ™‚

  335. Christine says:

    I can’t remember the last time I had chocolate milk! I need to remedy this asap…..

  336. Kay says:

    Just wearing some Vaseline on my lips!

  337. Helen says:

    I just had a workout last night with my friend… without a workout buddy I wouldn’t have to someone to compete with so I can’t push myself as hard >_

  338. Nalina M says:

    My husband is very frequently my workout buddy, but I have made so many friends at the gym that there is always a buddy there to motivate me and make it fun. Yay!

  339. jane says:

    gorgeous weekend!!

  340. Marivel says:

    Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there!

  341. Katie says:

    I don’t think I’d ever run a race naked. I mean, can you imagine the girls just flopping all over the place?! Hahaha.

  342. Ginelle says:

    Had a great weekend with family πŸ™‚

  343. musical says:

    A good breakfast makes me feel like a happy cat =^.^=

  344. Felicia says:

    I am wearing EOS lip balm in sweet mint

  345. Carolyn N. says:

    I have work training this weekend! Excited about my new job!

  346. Annette says:

    Today I’m just hanging out at home, so all I’m wearing on my lips is EOS lip balm. πŸ™‚

  347. Sonia Sadhwani says:

    My workout bud is my friend who encourages me to get a better bod, and then adds to my struggle by taking me to McDonalds right after a swim πŸ˜›

  348. KaylaK says:

    I prefer waterproof mascara, I usually have problems with my eyes watering so it’s kind of a safe guard for me!

  349. Caitlin says:

    I hate waterproof mascara because it’s so obnoxious to get off but with regular mascara it’s all over my face in a couple of hours. I’ve been using tubing mascara recently and liking it!

  350. Ariana says:

    I’m wearing Nivea lip balm in milk and honey and I love it!!

  351. Atifa says:

    Right now I’m wearing the EOS lipbalm in Summer Fruit– but my ALL time favourite lip balm is definitely the Chapstick brand in Cherry.. smells great and works wonderfully!

  352. Haha, no, I’ve never run a race naked πŸ˜› And I don’t think I *would* ever, either – that just seems like a bad idea all around, lol!!

  353. Christy O says:

    I am dying to buy the Illamasqua foundation in pure white. Almost all foundations, high-end or not, are too dark on me. I’d love to be able to finish off the bottles and have them match versus being awkwardly orange-y.

  354. Carol says:

    I only wear waterproof mascara. My eyes get very dry and then they get watery to compensate for the dryness. My mascara would run if I didn’t use waterproof.

  355. Lori says:

    I don’t run (heel spurs) but I like to walk but can’t today because (1) it’s raining and (2) back spasms πŸ™

  356. Maca says:

    Waterproof, all the way.

  357. Dee says:

    I would love to run a race…but definitely not naked! πŸ™‚

  358. tiffany says:

    after seeing your post i want to buy those mac body oils!

  359. Liz says:

    My workout buddy is my boyfriend!

  360. Ann says:

    This hot weather already has me whipped!

  361. cassi teague says:

    Having a lazy Sunday today! Those are needed every once in a while, right?! :-). Have a good week,, Karen and everyone else! Next weekend is going to rock! Hooray for a holiday weekend!

  362. Becky says:

    I am a teacher and this is the LAST week of the school year.

  363. elle says:

    Yum, chocolate milk. =9

  364. Jenn says:

    I’m just feeling so burnt out and sluggish. But on the bright side, there’s only a couple more weeks of school left. Let’s do this! πŸ™‚

  365. mn says:

    One of the things on my ‘to do’ list for today was to grab a neon polish but no matter how hard I try I don’t think they are very flattering on me. Glitter, however, is always on style. Hope you had fun at the races.

  366. Katie says:

    Ah, Bay to Breakers! I have terrible asthma so I can’t really do races like that, but I always liked seeing people’s costumes (or lack thereof, LOL) on the train and around the city when I lived in the Bay Area.

    I’m wearing Illamasqua Kontrol on my lips today with MAC Venetian Lustreglass dabbed in the middle – I usually like the extreme purpliness of Kontrol on its own, but it seemed like a fun purply-pinky mixture would be cool to try out. I keep hoping I win the Sephora certificate so I can justify buying more Illamasqua!

  367. Rosie says:

    Hmm…I don’t know if I could run naked. But my school does this event called “Naked Brunch” every year for the seniors. I’m still not sure if I’ll do it or not, though.

  368. Holly says:

    My bf is a personal trainer and I STILL can’t get up the motivation to work out often >.>

  369. Stephanie says:

    No, I have never run a race naked, and I never will… I hate running!!

  370. saku says:

    I wouldn’t dare run naked. I would be so awkward, lol.

  371. Amanda says:

    I have the clear babylips lip balm in the blue tube on my lips right now. It’s super hot and sunny here!

  372. Sonia says:

    Wearing Rimmel Nude Delight today ! ; )

  373. Libby says:

    I had chocolate milk this afternoon. I still love it!

  374. Juhye says:

    I’ve been obsessed with sea salt sprays (beach wave sprays) for my hair lately! I just can’t wait to go to the beach for summer!

  375. TrippyPixie says:

    Not wearing a lip product today, or any sort of makeup product, for that matter. I had prom last night and wore more makeup than I usually do, so I’m giving my face a break today. I wore contacts and did the whole works to my face (including wearing foundation, which I almost never do), so my skin definitely needs some rest.

  376. penny says:

    I recently tried NARS lipstick in Red Dragon and I am obsessed! It’s the perfect sophisticated red for my medium tan skin tone. I think you should also try it Karen!

  377. meghan says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! I love waterproof mascara for rainy days, because even though I work in an office I know the second I step outside at least one drop of rain will land on my lashes, ruining my look! (this happens to me all the time!) Otherwise I steer clear, because they are a pain to remove.

  378. Christine says:

    I usually work out alone, but I used to run with buddy.

  379. bonnie says:

    I wonder what greens would one use if they were to paint their face to look like the hulk,,,,

  380. Jennifer says:

    I am really loving the ELF waterproof mascara! Especially since it has been raining here for the last week straight! Makes it nice so I dont have to worry my eye makeup is running down my face πŸ™‚

  381. Michelle says:

    I’m wearing tinted lip balm today. πŸ™‚

  382. Maddie says:

    I just had a weekend snack of Chocolate Cake in a Mug. Yummy!

  383. Catherine says:

    Going crazy with the nautical theme…got some Hey, Sailor! and a bunch of striped shirts!

  384. Alyssa says:

    I had a race today, too! I hope yours went well!

  385. Eve says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! πŸ™‚

  386. Annie says:


  387. Bridget says:

    Just amde chocolate milk for my daughter 20 minutes ago! πŸ™‚

  388. Saba says:

    your blog’s pretty freakin awesome!

  389. Kiran says:

    Was totally bummed by MAC Hey Sailor, loved the packaging though.

  390. Melissa says:

    Today i mostly spent time looking at makeup that i cant buy yet πŸ™ but hopefully that will be remedied if i win the gift card!

  391. Megan says:

    Every year my University does an Undie run where you leave your clothes for donation to charity and run around campus in whatever you have left πŸ˜‰

  392. Nika says:

    Hey Karen! I prefer non-waterproof mascara just coz it’s such a pain removing the waterproof ones.

  393. Jennifer says:

    I have never worn anything but waterproof mascara. Pics of black streaks down the face have turned me off to regular mascara, lol.

  394. Krista says:

    I am a mascara addict I love waterproof but hate trying to get it off so I am usually wearing regular mascara. I do love waterproof diorshow!

  395. Kristina says:

    just wearing lip-balm right now!

  396. Toby says:

    I don’t think I’ve ever tried waterproof mascara, but I’m thinking it might be a good idea… my right eye always gets really watery, which results in some major makeup mishaps. >:

  397. Krista says:

    I have oily lids, so it always has to be waterproof unless I want raccoon eyes.

  398. Jae says:

    I don’t have a workout buddy since my workout schedule is too early for most of my friends.

  399. Stephanie says:

    on my lips im wearing Mac lipstick in Angel!

  400. Janet says:

    I don’t think I could ever run a race naked…

  401. Vanessa says:

    Yay! Can’t believe I won, already emailed you back! πŸ™‚
