“Shut the front door! OMG Karen, you have made my day. ๐Ÿ™‚ 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.”

  10. Ashley says:

    I finished a bottle of Clinique Happy once and I’m almost through a bottle of Ed Hardy. I’m addicted to the way it smells and since a really cute male told me that I smelled amazing last night I’m not going to stop using it anytime soon!

  11. Thanks for the giveaway, Tabs. I’d love to wear cat eye makeup

  12. Yes I’d love one of those Tabs for Sephora boxes please!

    Yup I’ve finished bottles of perfume! I am weirdly loyal when it comes to perfumes (and foundations. There are things that I can’t try enough of, and things things I prefer to go same-old same-old)! The scent I’ve been sticking to for the past 2-3 years is Dior Cherie. I’ve had the EDP, and now I have half a bottle of the EDT left ๐Ÿ™‚

    The only perfume I’ve ever finished is my favorite one (which, unfortunately isn’t in the snazziest bottle): Jo Malone Red Roses. However, a bottle usually lasts a while for me because you need so little of it.

  21. I’d share a weird secret with you to win this! Like how I like the smell of horses in the rain… Or how I have to set the TV’s volume at either 17, or at 20 or above, but never at 16, 18 or 19 (scary numbers!). Or maybe I could just tell you that my favorite flower is a lilly ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. Pam says:

    Up until recently, I only had one bottle of perfume from my wedding: DK Cashmere Mist. I’ve now got Bulgari Omnia Crystalline as well. I wear perfume so rarely so I doubt I will finish either of them.

  23. Nikki B. says:

    I have never attempted to do a cat eye! I need to learn how to use liquid liner rather than a pencil. But it looks so awesome.

  24. Christina says:

    My favorite flowers are roses!

  28. Mary says:

    My fave flower is a dahlia.

  29. Faiza says:

    I’m not sure exactly which is my favorite flower YET. I always said I would like to go to a garden and start checking them ALL out to figure out exactly which one I like. With that said, if I had to pick something right now, you can’t go wrong with roses ๐Ÿ˜‰

  30. kunjel says:

    My favorite flowers are Cherry blossoms on the trees. I saw them in Japan and they were so so beautiful!

  46. Jody says:

  47. Rachael says:

    I’m forever trying to get my cat-eye liner down just right, b
    ut I’m SUCH a struggler. My lids are kind of fold-over at the corners, so I dont have a flat surface to work with.

  48. katie says:

    my dog is getting really antsy because i have one cat in my lap and one on the arm of the couch next to me and therefore, he isn’t getting enough attention.

  52. Joyce says:

    I have been testing out Sephora’s new professional brush line and I’m loving them, so far. They’re sooooo soft and reminds me of bunny hair, except no animals were harmed during the manufacturing process. =)

  53. Neichelle says:

    Got some Julep polishes in the mail yesterday! Super excited.

  54. Ariel says:

  67. Janet says:

    Hi Karen! First off, luv the hair! I’ve had an angled bob for a long time but I’m missing having longer hair. Your cut is ideal!

    I just started filling in my brows last year and I’m amazed at the difference it makes on my whole appearance. Now when I look back at pictures I’m just like, ew I should have been doing something with my brows!

  78. Hillary says:

    I have naturally thick dark brows, I love them but they require a lot of upkeep!

    Also, I love roses, doesn’t matter what color!

  82. onegreatsmile says:

    I refuse to use a stencil, and I do fill in my brows… so I never have the same brow day twice.

    Gladiolas! In every beautiful color of the raidbow.

  88. Jenn says:

  90. Bethany says:

    Still loving the Urban Decay Smoked palette….top of my fall make up wishlist!

  91. BHsh says:

    Here i am! (Wave~~)

  93. Sara says:

    My favorite flowers are peonies and sweet peas.

  94. Minerva says:

    And, I never wear brow pencil because my brows are so thick and dark that if I didn’t “sculpt” them, they would take over my face.

  95. Lisa G says:

    My favorite flowers are peonies, hibiscus, gardenias, tulips, lillies and azaleas. I adore flowers. I’ve only finished one perfume that I’ve purchased multiple times…Liz Claiborne (original). But, my current obsession is Flower Bomb, go figure.

  96. I’ve always been a “signature” fragrance kind of girl. If I find something I love, I will wear that and only that for years until I fall i love with something else. Probably the longest I was wearing one specific perfume would be 5-6 years and it was Clinique’s Happy Heart. I still enjoy the smell and smelling it always transports me back to that time in my life…

    Hi, Karen,
    My favorite perfume right now is Viktor and Rolf’s Flowerbomb perfume. The perfume smells amazing and the bottle is beautiful!!! I already finished the petite bottle in my purse and am about to finish the large bottle sitting on my dresser.

  98. Mai says:

    Having a lazy Saturday with the family – eating lots, watching TV, cuddling with the puppies and the new baby in our house! Hope you have a lovely weekend?

  99. Katherine G says:

    My new signature fragrance is Versace Yellow Diamond (picked up the smallest size at Ulta just a week ago). I like summery scents or scents with a rose flavor to them, like Dior Midnight Poison. Have a great weekend Karen!

  100. hazakaza says:

    You know, I try to fill in my brows, but my eyebrows are pretty scruffy already and I feel like I never know what to do with them, or I fill them in too much. Every tutorial I’ve seen features girls with super-thin, super-plucked brows, and that’s just not me–it wouldn’t look good on my face, and that’s not how I manage them. So I pluck and keep them in line, but I would love to see a more full-browed girl do something on keeping your brows in line, and filed in, but also natural-looking.

  105. Michelle L says:

    Does anyone know a good caramel scent? Like really sweet and edible smelling? I’m a sucker for those. Using Jacqua buttercream lotion now but it’s not sweet enough.

  106. Edith says:

    Karen, I love your site. I was wondering…. do you own the Naked palette? Sidecar is such a lovely shade that I decided to wear it today but it’s giving me the same issues as usual…. FALLOUT. I want to avoid this. Any suggestions?

  107. nabel says:

  112. Quinctia says:

    I just tweeze my brows a bit. Like the hair on my head, they’re dark and full. I’m lucky to have a good natural arch, too!

    Umm…I’m this close to finishing off a bottle of one of my favorite BPAL oils. Luckily, as this one gets better with age, I’ve had a backup quietly lurking for awhile now!

  192. Rene Groyer says:

    I never finish any bottle of perfume.Why you may ask,well I just get bored with smells and I also wear different fragrances depending on my mood.So the perfumes get rotated and take forever to finish.I am like this with other cosmetics too ,except Decleor products,They are just so divine,I use them and even cut open the tubes of creams until they are completely empty .

    My favorite flower is the Chinese chrysanthemum. Such a beautiful, textural, bold, and yet delicate flower. I especially like the ones that are dark pink in the center and become the palest pink at the edge of the petals. So lovely!

    I love so many flowers it’s hard to choose a favorite. I love all roses, they smell so good. I love daisies, lilacs, gerbera daisies, daisies, lily of the valley. I can tell you the one I like the least and only because I can not tolerate the scent – the smelly kind of orchids they put into bouquet of flowers. Have a great weekend!

  239. Lauren D says:

    Hi Karen,

    I like thick brows, they frame eyes in a way that no makeup can. I use Anastasia brow pencil, and then clear brow gel and they are full and glam all day long. I used to use powder, but it does not have the staying power like the Anastasia brow pencil.

  240. Julie says:

    I love purple tulips – the colour combination of bright purple and green makes me happy!

  241. Carolyn N. says:

    I’m a sucker for prett’y perfume bottles. Right now I’m lusting after Marc Jacob’s Daisy and the Living La Vida one!

    I finally cleaned the living room!

  243. Laura Ly says:

  245. Tran says:

    My favorite flower would be either lotuses or lilies!

  246. Thao To says:

  249. Kristi says:

    Love the new Tabs for Sephora gift set!! I have finished many bottles of perfume! I used to be a signature scent kind of gal. But I found so many fragrances in the last couple of years that I love that I’m not finishing bottles as quickly as I used to!

  250. Ii think I might own enough lipglosses and lipsticks to paint an entire bedroom…..

    I can never do the cat eye properly! It just doesn’t look right on me…could you a tutorial???

  258. Amber says:

    I’ve never finished a bottle of perfume, because most perfumes give me a headache ๐Ÿ™

  259. Maeve says:

    I WISH I could do a cat eye! However I can go through my favorite perfume easily – I only use one kind and I use it every day

    I overplucked in my high school days and now I always have to fill in the sparse areas with eyebrow powder or pencil. Otherwise I just feel like my look is unfinished.

  269. Nikki says:

    would love to use this to try some new lipsticks!

  270. Christine says:

    I’ve finished one or two bottles of Happy Heart, but now I have too many different choices to use up!

    Watching an ER show and they’re talking about pus. I am trying to prepare for a future job as an N.P. but sometimes I wonder if I’ll be able to handle it!

  272. Torrie says:

    the first bottle of perfume i ever finished was miss dior cherie

  277. Kelly says:

    Hi Karen, I just picked up the Nars eye prime because you are always speaking so highly of it, and I love it! My new favorite perfume is from Banana Repulic ( I know, not where you would think of finding a good perfume) its call Vert Full Bloom ( I think) it has a white flower on the bottle, but the fragrance is just amazing, it really is a lovely scent. If you are ever near a BR give it a sniff I know you’ll love it.

    Yesterday, I went cherry picking … 62(!) lbs worth. It was quite an experience, especially because it was burning hot. So hot in fact, all my makeup melted off my face … Yum! ๐Ÿ˜€

  293. Justine says:

    I normally don’t do anything with my brows. I only fill them in for special occasions when I’ll be on camera.

  294. Lisa says:

    I finally found a brow pencil pale enough for me, so now I fill in my brows most days. It makes a huge difference in how I look.

  295. Angela says:

    I just made a peanut butter pie! I can’t wait for it to freeze. How can I make my freezer work faster?

  297. Larissa Braga says:

    My favorite fragrance is Daisy by Marc jacobs ๐Ÿ™‚


  298. Tania says:

    Favorite flower is a pink rose the darker the better. My least are stargazer lillies because I’m horrifically allergic!!

  299. Tess says:

    I have never finished a bottle of perfume because I am constantly trying tester sizes!

  300. Jane says:

    I’m new-ish to makeup. I seem to focus on one thing to obsess about and learn about till I go on to another part (ex: I was obsessed with eye shadows, then moved on to lip products and now I’m hovering between blushes/bronzers and brows). Currently the only thing I’m doing with my brows is tweezing beneath the brow (not over bc it hurts too much lol). I do want to learn more about filling them in though.

    Just so you know, JC Penney Sephora’s are getting rid of Cargo completely (at least the one in my mall) so they are at 40% off.

    Are there any recommendations for Cargo products?

  301. Willow says:

    I don’t think my eyes look that great with cat eye makeup, but I LOVE it on other girls!

  303. jess says:

    i looooove revlon just bitten balm stains!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! especially smitten!

  304. Chelsea says:

    I don’t particularly have a favorite flower, I like them all. I fill in my brows every day, because they’re quite sparse, especially toward the outside. I use a Milani brow marker thing. I tweeze strays, and trim long hairs as well. Brows are so important! Cat-eye makeup is one of my favorite things to do with makeup. I love a lot of Guerlain perfume bottles, but I also love the simplicity of my Chanel Chance bottle. I’ve never finished a bottle of perfume, actually…

  305. Jessica says:

    I”m trying to find the perfect perfume for my wedding,but I am partial to my Burberry Brit for women!

  306. Solangel says:

    I have two favorite flowers, sunflowers and daisies. No one has ever given me one though, the bf always goes for roses. Not that I mind ๐Ÿ™‚

  307. Ree Racoma says:

    I know in my heart I will win this time because God says so…

  312. Fitri says:

    I don’t really wear the cat eye look very much but only because I haven’t mastered the art of liquid eyeliner. It either always takes forever or it smudges. But I’ve been practicing and have recently gotten pretty smitten at it

  313. Christine says:

    I love Vera Wang’s Lovestruck’s bottle ๐Ÿ™‚

  314. Sara Martinez says:

    Wearing glittery eyeshadow makes me feel young again. Oh yeah Magic Mike is a great movie oh yeah !!!

  315. Helena says:

    I love doing my brows; I’m kind of obsessed with it. Plucking and trimming is a hobby! When I fill them in it’s either with MAC’s Quarry shadow or Fling pencil.

  316. AG says:

    I’m partial to the Ineke perfume bottle – partially because it’s got clear glass and clean lines, and partially because it’s my first high-end perfume ๐Ÿ™‚

  317. Michelle says:

    Charcoal brown from MAC is what is on my brows! Love sample perfumes. That is all I use.

    My favorite perfume bottles are by Tocca (Guiletta is my absolute favorite, however I recently got the violet scent). The lid has flowers and vines and birds on it, the inside flap of the box says “Love Yourself”…makes me smile everytime.

  334. layla says:

    my very own tabs for 49.99 plus a handful of goodies? count me in!

  335. Bonnie says:

    For the most part, I just keep my brows tweezed. Every now and then, I will trim and/or fill them, though.

  341. Aimen says:

    I love roses and daisys. And with tabs I always go for the cat eye or the wing;D
    RAWR! Fierce;)

  342. Shauna says:

    I really like the look of the new UD palette… the packaging looks great, colors are gorgeous, and the value is there. I’m really interested to see the book of looks that comes with it as well.

    As far as finishing a bottle of perfume, I have done it… but not often. I go through phases- so I’m loving the rollerballs that have become a big deal…the only thing with those is the value is not that great. Jimmy Choo for example- $24 for the rollerball, and you can get the smallest bottle for about $30something…

    Hope your having a great summa!

  343. Hohe says:

    Lilies are my favorite flower.

  344. Brenda!! says:

    I’m trying to per-fect the cat eye liner technique. Can’t wait for your review and swatches of the UD naked skin foundation.

    I’m taking this opportunity to say your hair looks freakin’ AMAZING! I saw the pictures from the last post, and it looks so shiny and full and awesome. I’m super jealous!

  346. Ashley says:

    I ALWAYS fill in my brows. Even though they are naturally pretty thick, I don’t feel right if I don’t fill them in with my trusty Bare Escentuals brow powder.

  347. Jacqueline says:

    I have been into beauty and fashion for nearly five years, and I have yet to finish a perfume bottle- some are on their last legs and I rarely use them, but I have never finished one!


  348. E. says:

    I try to fill in my brows, but when I don’t have a lot of time (or don’t want to fuss) I just give them a good brush.

  349. KPrice says:

    I just started using brow tamers and I wish I had found them sooner. I like Perfekt brow gel or Benefits speed brow. Thanks for a chance at a giveaway! Have a good weekend.

    My favorite perfume of all time, Gloria from Cacharel, is not on the market for a few years. I am desperate, since then I never found anything I like ;-(((( I liked everything about this perfume, the bottle, the scent, the color…..

  361. Irene Christine says:

  362. Barbara says:

    I have used up perfume in the past. Now I’m so into fragrance I’ll never use up all I buy!

  379. Daniella says:

    I keep going through bottles of Vanilla Apricot by Comptoir Sud Pacifique. I thad tried to change it up with fragrances but I give up, I always go back to that delicious perfume. I adore it!

  380. buckycatt says:

    Tabs – I just love your new collection! U have the cat eye look down!! Is it wrong to abandoned a hot cat for air conditioned dogs? I feel so ashamed, but cool.

    Hot in MT

  381. I fill in my brows either either MAC’s brow pencil in Spiked or with eyeshadow.

  382. Katie says:

    I don’t own a cat, but with all those goodies, maybe I should get the Tabs for Sephora set! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have several favorite flowers: orchids, poppies, sunflowers, and tulips.
    Filling my brows with my trusty Anastasia Brow Wiz is the first thing I do after applying foundation.
    Cat eye makeup used to be the ONLY eye makeup I wore, but haven’t done it nearly as much in the last year.
    My favorite perfume bottle design is FlowerbyKenzo’s elegantly simple poppy design. I’ve never finished a bottle of perfume.
    My favorite sweater is one I’ve had since 8th grade, and I’m a college senior now! It’s a Ralph Lauren navy blue sweater with a gray hoodie. It’s getting a bit snug and there’s sign of wear on the sleeves, but it’ll take a LOT to make me give up that sweater.

  383. Clara says:

    Am about to go get tempted at Sephora.

  384. Anna says:

    MAC’s Impeccable Brow Pencil in Taupe! Can’t live without it

  386. Kathie says:

    I think this summer has been really HOTT! I’ve been loving loving cut off shorts, cutouts, and sheer blouses anything not too heavy, or that will get me a little breathing room!

    I have finished a perfume bottle! Miss dior cherie!

  400. TwirlyGirly says:

    Here’s how I do my brows: I buy the $1.00 clear lash and brow mascara from E.L.F.. I take the tip of the brush from the “brow” end and touch it to the tip of the brush from my (black, non-waterproof) Maybelline Great Lash Mascara. I then insert the E.L.F. brush back in the tube and swirl it around a few times to blend and distribute the color. The end result is a black tinted gel that works perfectly to tint and shape my brows – and it only costs me $1.00! For the record, my brows in their natural state appear quite sparse – but that’s because I have pale blonde hairs mixed in with some that are quite dark. My homemade tinted gel brings those paler hairs out of hiding, and is all I need for an “everyday” look (I do use pencil or brow powder in addition to the gel for a more made-up look).

  401. Ana Ribeiro says:

    I’m so happy that UD decided not to sell in China, that I might just have to go and get some more UD goodies. ๐Ÿ˜€

  407. This morning Hubby and I made breakfast and I actually found a kind of bacon I didn’t like. I never ever thought that would happen. I didn’t matter how crispy or soft it was, it just didn’t taste good, which is too bad since it was kind of expensive at a fancy gourmet market. Wah Wah.

  408. Y. says:

    Love your blog! It’s so different then so many other beauty blogs I’ve visited.
    My favorite beauty item for summer is BB cream! It’s way lighter than foundation.

  419. What a nice idea! Making over cat ladies. It’s perfect! I hope their kitties get some pampering too.

  420. Chunyi says:

    I’ve tried the cat eyeliner look, I don’t think it works for my eye shape. However, the kitten eye look is perfect for my hooded eyes, It’s subtle and fills our my eye lid making my eyes look a bit bigger than they actually are.

  421. nacacijin says:

    I’m super excited today because I found a new ophthalmologist and now I’m getting my hopes up about having my vision in my right eye back. Everyone keeps telling me to “be realistic” but I can’t help but be a little giddy and hopeful :):)

  430. Liz says:

    For about the past year I’ve been dying my brows a couple shades darker then my hair. I do this becaue I got tired of futzing with them every day and with my pale hair and ruddy skin I really couldn’t skip a day. Without the dye they are thick and Blonde!

  431. Sarah says:

    Your hair looks beautiful!

  432. garianne draves says:

  433. Leann says:

    this may be incorrect but i love dandelions!… even though they are considered a weed haha

  434. Tiana says:

    I fill in my brows everyday. But I don’t pluck them. They are very sparse.

    I never wear cat eye makeup. It’s to much for me.

    I have finished a fragrance several times. Kenzo Amour. But then I stopped using all fragrances altogether.

    I hope you are well, Karen. Have a good week!

  435. Mary says:

    I have to fill in my brows if I’m doing anything more intense than an everyday natural look because when I was 10, I decided I didn’t like my bushy eyebrows and took a pair of scissors to the one, but then got scared. It never grew back in, so one of my eyebrows is missing a chunk. It’s not super bad because my eyebrows did end up thinning out a little bit as I got older, but it’s definitely weird looking.

  436. Lilly says:

    I love your new hair!

  437. theresa says:

    I never fill in my brows, they are pretty full and thick already. Every time I fill them, it just doesn’t look right.

  438. Kim says:

    Thank you so much for your blog. We’re in the middle of an overseas move and your blog is the only constant amid all the crazyness surrounding me. ๐Ÿ™‚

    My favorite sweatshirt is this old, washed too many times, oversized and starting to show serious wear Michigan Wolverines sweatshirt I inherited from my husband (when he left for deployment and somehow it just stayed with me). I know it has definitely seen better days but it’s the best thing to wear while having some tea and some salted caramels ( I do try not to have the entire box. LOL.) when everything is just not going your way. Sort of an instant pick me up.

  439. Alicia says:

    I wish I could pull off a cat eye look! My eyes are too wide set though, I believe. I’ll just have to leave the cat eye look off to my 3 cats- George, Bob, and Tilly. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  440. Stephanie says:

    I’m really loving Dr. Dennis Gross’ alpha beta daily face peels! It’s too hot to wear makeup so I concentrate on better skincare

  441. Hillary says:

    I feel so accomplished when I hit pan on a product; finishing one that’s taken a while to get though, now THAT is grounds for celebrating!!

    PS: anyone that is into brows — for years I’ve been going to any drugstore that carries Wet ‘N’ Wild products and picking up their brown eyebrow/eyeliner pencils. They’re far to stiff and waxy as far as eyeliner but they make a great (and CHEAP $00.99) brow pencil. They have a few different shades of brown as well as black. The wax that makes it an awful eyeliner makes it a great brow pencil!! It amazes me I’ve never heard or seen them mentioned on blogs or in videos.

    This weekend I dragged DH into sephora because I felt like trying out a new perfume. I looked at Hermes because I’ve always loved their perfumes. But surprisingly they didn’t appeal to me this time. And now I’m kicking myself because I forget the name of the one perfume that I did love. It was sitting right above Hermes and it was a tuberose scent. Argh. And its no secret that I love tuberoses.

    Anyway… I also persuaded DH to try out some perfumes and we both agreed that Chanel’s Allure was the winner. We didn’t buy it right then because I like to let the perfume sit on my skin for a couple of hours before making a decision, but now I know what to buy for our anniversary! ๐Ÿ˜€
