A Makeup and Beauty Blog giveaway
Win a $50 eGift card from Sephora

“Mrrrrow…” Tabs grumbled to himself. His nemesis, the blue kitty from the house down the hill, was already there, reaching up for what looked like the last box of Caudalie fur cream.


Blast! Tabs had been waiting for this day for weeks, the first annual Bring Your Cat to Sephora Day, and he’d planned to get to the store early, hopefully beating the other cats to the best stuff.

The details were all supposed to have been taken care of. His assistant got him up early and prepped his morning gravy, but the special fur and makeup team he’d hired for the occasion were held up in traffic on the 101.

Unbelievable. The Navy Seals of the feline fur and makeup worlds, and they get waylaid by a little traffic? It’s called problem solving, people!

Cats were everywhere in the store, snatching up all the best products. “Mrow!” Briefly, Tabs considered using brute force to wrest the box of Caudalie cream from the blue kitty’s paws, but with so many witnesses around…

Oh, well, Tabs thought to himself, there’s always next year.

* * *

Good morning, glory! ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope your weekend got off to a great start. No complaints out here. I ended up not going to that party in the city last night. 11 p.m. was just too late for me, so I just watched some TV until I passed out.

This is random, but I just had the most amazing meyer lemon croissant. Perfectly flaky, buttery layers, and the lemony parts weren’t too sweet or heavy. It was like eating a fluffy, buttery, lemony pastry cloud…

Anywho, while I relive that awesome croissant in my daydreams, have you entered this weekend’s $50 Sephora eGift card giveaway yet? I hope you do, and don’t forget — there are two ways to win.

What folks are saying…

“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! Thank you again.”

“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. 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.”

“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. 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.”

  2. Rachel says:

    I just went to Sephora on Monday – my birthday!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I got the NARS Vent Glace duo, High Society trio, a little Tokidoki palette, and then got my bday gift and 100 point gift!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I still need the rest of the NARS fall collection – the lip products are amazing!

  3. Toby says:

    I am absolutely TERRIBLE at numbers. At some point, maths stopped being fun, & it all went downhill from there…!

  4. cathy says:

    I was at sephora not long ago!!.. was so tempted to get some benefit stuff.. but passed on it =)

  5. Brooke says:

    I haven’t been to a physical Sephora (even though we have one in the mall locally) in about 3 years; however, I shop on ALL the time! I placed my last order a few weeks ago for my bday.

  6. Astrid says:

    Hi, Karen! I love your blog and your awesome giveaways ๐Ÿ˜€ I just want to tell you that I want everything from Feelunique’s sale.. *sigh*

  7. Larie says:

    I went to Sephora a few days ago to check for the new MUFE brow things, but they didn’t have them yet ๐Ÿ™

  8. Alix says:

    I went to Sephora yesterday, and managed to walk out empty-handed — NOT a frequent occurrence! Like the new Nail Studio bar; don’t like the fact that they’re minimizing the number of makeup try-on stations at the end-caps.

  9. marisol says:

    Meyer lemon croissant!!! What the what! Where can I get that?

  10. April says:

    Whenever I need to think, I usually go find some enclosed space. I’ll even sit in my closet! I have no idea why I do that. So strange >_

  11. Daniella says:

    Last time I went to sephora (about three weeks ago) I went in with the intention of buying Nars Mascate..But at the last second I talked myself out of it and wound up buying a cheap drugstore red lipstick instead ๐Ÿ˜‰

  12. Lisa Brown says:

    I have only shopped at Sephora one time online.

  13. Roxanne says:

    The last time I went to Sephora I impulse-bought a bottle of Coach Poppy. Best impulse buy ever.

  14. karen says:

    Love the main post image (as usual). I often wish that there was such a thing as take-your-pet-to-work day, but realistically I know that my kitties would be traumatized by the commute (they HATE going in the car and cry like they are being tortured throughout even the shortest drive).

    Hope you are having a nice weekend!

  15. Shaylee says:

    My brother and his girlfriend got a kitten yesterday and named him Dolce! He’s so adorable, I miss when my kitties were little – now they are HUGE! haha

  16. Nicolle says:

    Karen, you’re awesome for having this giveaway every week! Thank you!!

  17. Hazel says:

    Long weekend here! Happy weekend guys!

  18. Joanna says:

    If I where to work for a makeup/beauty line it would be MUFE. Thank you and have a great weekend!

  19. Brittany says:

    Last time I was at Sephora, I wasn’t going in looking for anything in particular (never a good idea!) and left with two YSL lipsticks and a Dior gloss. I have no self control in that store!

  20. ceci says:

    Happy Saturday, everyone!

  21. Yesenia says:

    haha my cat is way too mean to go out in public, he is very shy also :S

  22. Justine says:

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  23. Michelle says:

    I want to work for Bare Escentuals!

  24. Wayne says:

    I’m full of catnip.

  25. Joyce says:

    I’m sure Tabs won’t mind hitting up another Sephora store to find the Caudalie fur cream or he could go down the hill to the blue kitty’s house and claw it away! =) heheh..kidding

  26. Katrina says:

    Unfortunately I don’t have a Sephora near me but I did just get an order from them Wednesday!

  27. Ellen says:

    I’m actually going to Sephora today! I could take my cat but I don’t think the mall people would be pleased.

    The Sephora by my house is in a dog friendly mall, so I can take my baby girl there. She likes it when people tell her she’s a pretty puppy ๐Ÿ™‚

  28. Luciana Diniz Lima says:

    Never been to sephora

  29. Megan says:

    It’s been an entire year since I’ve been to a Sephora store, since there isn’t one around me. I could shop online, but I like being able to test to makeup.

  30. I am eating waffles and eggs right now and would love to go to sephora right now, if I win! I last went 2 weeks ago. Just poking around, you know. The usual. ๐Ÿ™‚

  31. Mai says:

    Going to my cousin’s wedding today! Thinking of some bright, coral red lips for the reception :DDD

    I just bought a perfume from sephora.

  33. onegreatsmile says:

    I would have loved to work for MAC before it was bought by estee lauder!

    I’ve never been to Sephora but I’m dying to go ๐Ÿ™‚

  35. Sarah says:

    T money and K dawg! Thanks for doing this giveaway. I’ve never purchased a Mac product. before but that suits me fine.

  36. Miso says:

    Was just there 2 wks ago bought the tarte airbrush foundation brush! Love it!! Now I need a good eyeliner for the waterline!!!

  37. Kim says:

    I got some Tokidoki clearance items at Sephora this week. I wish they weren’t discontinuing that brand.

  38. Julie says:

    I’m tempted to buy another inglot freedom palette!

  39. Sophie says:

    I have never been to a Sephora store in person! The closest one is at least an hour away, but ONE DAY!!!! Bring your cat to Sephora—–this is one of your funniest stories yet, Karen!!

  40. Cam says:

    I love your blog! I find the product reviews really helpful, and I always look forward to your Sunday with Tabs post.

  41. Kristi says:

    It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve been to Sephora. Am itching to go & check out some fall colors in person. Need to be patient though as I know it’s too early for them to have some of those things in store yet.

  42. Jana Ricketts says:

    I was at sephora last Tuesday :]

  43. Selina says:

    Last time I was in sephora was… 3 weeks ago, actually. I really want the Primal Instincts palette, though, so it may be time for another trip!

    I would loooove to work at Chanel or NARS!

    I try to get to Sephora at least once a week even if I don’t buy anything.

  50. Krissy says:

    I didn’t know perfume only lasted for one year until my old one turned into merely expensive alcohol after five years.

  51. Beatrice says:

    I haven’t been to Sephora in almost a year! but I am always on their website!!! Love their variety of products!

  52. Summer says:

    I can’t wait to stock up on some back to school (and internship – I got one, HOORAY!) necessities at Sephora: Pressed powder, L’Occitane hand lotions, Boscia blotting sheets, lip glosses, and shower stuff!

  53. Amie F says:

    I went to Sephora last weekend.

    I went to Sephora about two weeks ago, and I’ll probably go this coming Friday.

  56. Nou says:

    The last time I went to the Sephora was a couple months ago…

  57. Carol says:

    I think the last time I went to Sephora was last year. It was the first and only time I’ve gone to Sephora. I wanted to check out the makeup but the mix of perfume scents when I entered the store were too overpowering for me to handle. I had to leave immediately.

  58. Shana says:

    I totally wish I could work for Chantecaille … I’d make big use of that discount!

  59. margie says:

    I love maxi dresses in the summer!

  60. Lydia L says:

    The last time I went to Sephora was two weeks ago and bought the Lancome Hypnose Drama ….and it STILL clumps!!!!!

  61. mylie says:

    I would love to work for Urban Decay! ๐Ÿ™‚

  62. Beth says:

    it’s been forever since I’ve been to sephora. been crazy busy moving. it totally sucks.

  63. Faith says:

    Last time i went to sephora was for prom i purchased the laura mercier silk creme foundation, cost me an arm and a leg but very worth it!!!

  64. Icequeen81 says:

    I went to sephora before I left Holland I got a solid Barbie Perfume , it was lovely

  65. Soo says:

    I wouldn’t be able to function at a Bring Your Cat to Sephora Day, my allergies would drive me nuts. it’s sad because I actually really like cats, I think they’re adorable.

    I’m super excited for next Tuesday to arrive, because I can’t wait until I finally get to see le bf after not seeing him for about six months! hope you have a great weekend, Karen~

  66. nabel says:

    I’d work for Urban Decay creating eyeshadow colors!

  67. Georgiana says:

    I just found a sweet, old Stevie Nicks demo + it’s a real warm evening – this has been a good day!

  68. jaymie says:

    I was just at Sephora the other day! I was there for a very long time looking for glittery eye shadow. Debating if i should get Tarina Tarantino Sparklicity Pure in Nude. It is so beautiful and sparkly! Still gotta make a decicion…..

  69. Laura Case says:

    This beach weather is bringing out a lot of jay walkers!

  70. Mary Ann Dennis says:

    I love Sephora. I could definitely use some back to school makeup. Wait … Is it weird for a 29 year old to say that?

  71. Lili says:

    I’de like to work for MAC

  72. jenny says:

    My dog would be like my boyfriend at Sephora… totally bored! Lol. Now if I were to have another pet it would definitely be baby tiger cubs like these ones just born at the zoo where I live. Going to see them tomorrow. ๐Ÿ™‚

  73. If I won this gift card i would so be in Sephora buying NARS blush/lipstick.

  74. Gabby T says:

    I have never taken my kitties to work but wish I could!

  75. Amanda says:

    It’s been so long since I actually walked into a sephora. Probably about 2 years.

  76. Kim Pincombe Cole says:

    Such a funny post! Love Tabs ๐Ÿ™‚
    My bichon frise rescue dog ran out the door with my husband the other day & jumped into his car as he was leaving for work. She’s never done that before in the 2 years we’ve had her (she hates riding in cars!) – decided she thought it was ‘take your dog to work day’…
    Happy Saturday!

  77. Kprice says:

    I went to Sephora yesterday during lunch. It was a bad work week and I needed to get out. I didn’t end up getting anything (couldn’t decide and didn’t have much time) but it was so nice to take a break and just browse for awhile. Have a good weekend.

  78. Nikki I says:

    At the moment, my favorite eyeshadow combination is a layer of Sephora’s “ENGAGEMENT RING” eyeshadow with MAC’s “REFLECTS BRONZE” glitter pigments on top.

  79. Rhia says:

    Haven’t been to Sephora in a good while. Usually I just browse when I’m in there, but winning this gift card will be a very good incentive to return.

  80. Ana says:

    I went to Sephora two days ago. I bought the Benefit How to Look Good at Everything and a Coach Poppy rollerball.

  81. Amanda G says:

    What’s brown and sticky?

    A stick.

  82. Sydney Durr says:

    i just got my school schedule and i’m not liking it… ๐Ÿ™

  83. Tango is not an outdoor cat at all, but he enjoys taking a walk with me. By that I mean I hold him like a baby and walk a couple of blocks (usually in autumn when the weather’s nice and cool) so that he can look around. Last time we did this he met the neighborhood black-and-white kitty! That one usually doesn’t let strangers get close, but I walked up to him with Tango and they sort of avoided eye contact… which I guess is better than trying to claw each other’s eyes out!

  84. Ash G says:

    Whenever I need to think I head to the lake. The rhythm of the water calms me down and clears my head.

  85. Rachel B. says:

    Loving Sephora online. Much easier to find the things that I like! Saw the Chicago air and water show… nice!!! If you get a chance, go see it!

  86. Portia Powell says:

    I haven’t been to Sephora since early Spring. This would be a terrific gift for Fall finds.

  87. Jenn says:

    I was in Sephora a month ago, but ordered online last week ๐Ÿ˜‰ I need the GC because I am going to Esthetician school starting in a few weeks and will have no fun money for 37 weeks! *whimper whimper lol*

  88. Jahmaiah says:

    Finally condensed my makeup wishlist! Multitaskers are a must. I’ve come to terms with my short eyelashes, I’ll have fun with falsies on weekends, it took me FOREVER to learn how to apply strip lashes. Practice makes perfect!

  89. Brandi says:

    I wish I could go to Sephora more often. The closest one to me is two hours away! But thank God for online shopping! :))

  90. Jessica Kottoor says:

    Haha if only we could actually bring cats to sephora!

  91. Ree says:

    I lil to randomly do the robot to pass the time.

  92. Rachelle says:

    Last time I was at sephora was last week. I’ve been wanting to get some new stuff!

  93. Ana Ribeiro says:

    I work at home, so my cat is always “at work” with me! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m waiting for my 50 dollar gift card to go to Sephora! ๐Ÿ˜€

  94. Alison says:

    I think the last time I went to Sephora was Tuesday. I had to pick up a new Clarisonic brush head and return some foundation that made be break out ๐Ÿ™

  95. Vikki M. says:

    great giveaway!

  96. Chloe says:

    I went to sephora a few weeks ago to get an eyelash curler ๐Ÿ™‚

  97. Jane says:

    Way to start my day with a smile. Amber and Jeremiah will be bummed when they learn they missed “Take You Car to Sephora Day”. Your lemon croissant sounds delish, BTW. I hope I win! If I do, I really don’t want to share my haul with the cats. . .

  98. Lynn says:

    Haven’t been to Sephora in months, it’s killing me but I gotta save. And if i could work for a beauty company it would be for Tarte …but why not just work for Sephora right? i wonder what their employee discount is like?
    Have you ever painted Tabs’ nails or dyed his hair? I wouldn’t to my pets but I would give them cute hair cuts:)

  99. Lucia says:

    I haven’t been to sephora in more than 2 months because I haven’t been wanting anything cosmetics-related, but I’m thinking of going there soon to get backups of my HG lip balm, jack black!!

  100. Ali says:

    I have actually never been to a Sephora. There isn’t one close to me…but my sister lives near one, so I’ll definitely be checking it out next time I go visit her.

  101. Janine says:

    Lol you are silly for the cat post! I actually went to sephora the first time last saturday and spend 2 hours in there to leave the store with 1 eyeshadow and 1 lipgloss (hubby sent me shopping with $50 and i had to think about how to spend the money EXACTLY lol)..So whenever i get to some money, i will shop there again (planned on another stila eyeshadow shade), so why not trying to win a giftcard, huh?!
    All out of a sudden i crave a lemon croissant now – wonder why!!! I have denim clothes in the bathtub right now bleaching them (DIY, ya know?!), drinking corona with lime, commenting on several blogs and as you can tell i am pretty bored right now since i am writing a story on your blog! That’s what you get for telling people to write a comment about ANYTHING….lol
    Have a great day Lady!

  102. Whitney says:

    Today I made roasted chickpeas. They are so very delicious. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks so much for the giveaway opportunity! I hope I win!!!

  105. Cindy G says:

    The last time I went to Sephora was about a month ago, but I’m planning on going there this Monday as I need more BareMinerals foundation.

  106. Jess L says:

    I haven’t been to Sephora in way too long!!

  107. Ashley S says:

    Last time I was in Sephora was 2 months ago, I’m deprived!!!!

    Last time I went to Sephora I spent alot of money on My fragrance, but i need to go for some new nail colors and eye shadows for fall ๐Ÿ™‚ and use some points ๐Ÿ˜‰ Love the freebies! and bday goodies!

  109. Today temperatures outside reached 36ร‚ยฐC. In my apartment it got to 35ร‚ยฐC. I’m going crazy. Not getting any work done. Pounding head ache. Maybe a Sephora gift card would help…? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I wish there was a Sephora where I live ! I always have to order online.

  117. irini says:

    When I need to go somewhere to think, I go by the beach.

  118. Jenna N. says:

    I can’t remember the last time I went to Sephora. I keep avoiding it to help stave off the temptation to spend money. I think it must have been around my birthday in early June when I was spending money under the “it’s a birthday present to myself” guise.

  119. Serene says:

    If I had $50 to spend at Sephora… I’d get an eyeshadow palette! Or a fabulous serum! Or perfume, or brush set… OK, this is hard to decide.

  120. Jennifer Ryder says:

    I have a big, beautiful Siamese cat but he’s not very nice. I won’t take him ANYWHERE. I was mortified by his behavior when I took him to the vet several years ago. The vet and the technicians had to put on those padded things to protect their arms – the ones used to train attack dogs. They said the next time I brought him in he might need to be sedated. Umm, I needed sedation after that. Now I make my husband bring him!

  121. Kate & Zena says:

    Tabs and Friends! He should have a show. ๐Ÿ™‚

  122. April says:

    I went to Sephora about a month ago; purchased NARS Deep Throat blush and Lhasa e/s!

  123. Christy O says:

    I really wish I owned more Will & Grace DVDs. Karen is my style icon.

  124. jess says:

    loving this weather

  125. Jenny says:

    I haven’t been to Sephora in a while, actually. I usually shop at Ulta because they have a really great rewards program. But of course, Sephora has some specialty brands you can’t get elsewhere. Anyway, hope you’re having a great weekend! I’m having a “clean and redecorate the apartment day!” Back to work…

  126. ashley macias says:

    I love sephora!!!

  127. Samantha F. says:

    I think the last time I have had anything to do with Sephora was back in May. I get trouble when I go anywhere the store. I’ve been wanting the naked palette for so long but cannot afford so this gift card would be amazing to have! Thanks for the giveaway and hope you’re enjoying your weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

  128. Amanda says:

    I usually shop online so I haven’t been to an actual Sephora store in weeks!

  129. Toni O. says:

    My Sephora wishlist contains over fifty products at the moment! : |

  130. Kelsey says:

    Do you ever take your pet to work with you?

    I wish that I could! I’m a teacher, though, so I think that taking my cat into the classroom with me would be pretty distracting for me and the kids. She’d probably crawl all over everything and knock books off the shelves. … ๐Ÿ™‚

  131. LauraA says:

    Haven’t been to Sephora in a few weeks but need to go by the end of the month to get more of my Murad and Ole Henriksen serum. Am running out of both.

    Thanks for another great giveaway opportunity Karen!

  132. Marisa says:

    Last time I went to Sephora was in June for my birthday. The closest Sephora is 5 hours away!

    I used to love when people brought their dogs to the office when I worked in the Senate

  328. Jessica says:

    The last time I went to Sephora was two weeks ago. There really isn’t one close enough to where I live to justify going as often as I want.

  329. Lisa Cover says:

    I opened my own business thisummer. Yes my dog came for 1 day but I had to fire him! He barked. Poor buddy. All my $$ is in the business now, so I would love a gift card to splurge with! Thanks!

  330. Dawn says:

    The last time I went to Sephora was to pick up my complimentary B-day gift, the Fresh lip balm set. I’m really liking them so far! Not sure if I’ll buy the full size ones since they are pretty pricey for a lip balm. I’m trying to resist going in there too much lately—too much like an adult version of the kid in the candy store!

  331. Lexi says:

    sadly, cannot take my boy Olls to work with me everyday, or any day, unless I get to work from home on rare occasion. I’ve heard that those who work at the corp offices for Google and PetCo get to bring their pets to work.

    but I would love to have a Sephora giftcard – the big 3-2 is coming up in a few weeks and I could buy myself a few baubles. I’m interested in that new MUFE brow stuff you featured this week.

    much love to you and Tabbers – have a great week!

  332. Janet says:

    I was just in Sephora a couple of days ago. I was wandering around like an idiot. It was packed and hot and I didn’t have anything particular I needed. I just started putting stuff in my basket and looking for things to buy (I had a bad week at work). Then I stopped in the middle of the store and looked in my basket and set it down and walked out! Thank God!

  333. Boo says:

    Poor Tabs! Some days have a way of not working out the way you had hoped.

    I was actually just at Sephora last night picking up samples of exfoliators to try on my cranky skin.

  334. Love the post! I work from home so I am always surrounded by very beautiful 6 feline friends. The last time I went to Sephora was about a week ago to pick up a tube of Potion primer. I just love the stuff.

  335. Nina says:

    Oh my! My Cat loves Sephora!! But she can’t seem to get the hang of doing human eye eyeliner. !

  336. Donna says:

    i really want to try laura mercier’s setting powder ๐Ÿ™‚

  337. Jen says:

    Getting back into the dating world, could use a Sephora trip.

  338. Shannon says:

    I haven’t been in Sephora in over 5 months. I literally went to school in the middle of nowhere. But I would love to go in there and check it out as I really need to find some foundation for an event coming up.

  339. Menia says:

    I went to Sephora just yesterday, which by the way was the 4th time this month! Had to use my discount coupons, can you blame me??

  340. Jessm says:

    I’m a vet so my dog gets to come to work with me!
    I really need a new perfume, I think I’m allergic to the old one. I definitely need to get to sephora soon!

  341. Sophie's Dish says:

    I want sephora lorac pro palette

  342. Chrissy says:

    I love winning giveaways!

  343. Katie says:

    I would work for Urban Decay or any nail polish brand, especially China Glaze (I have a minor nail polish addiction).

  344. Sara says:

    I work from home so my cat always get to work with me…

  345. Sady says:

    Happy Sunday!!!!!! (trying to mask a serious case of the Sunday-before-work-again blues….)

  346. Darlene says:

    I haven’t been to Sephora for a few months. I hope I win!

  347. Kimberly says:

    happy sunday!

  348. chibicheeks says:

    It’s been awhile since I’ve been to Sephora. I’m in the middle of planning/saving for a wedding and furnishing a new home all at the same time. It doesn’t stop me from making imaginary carts online though!

  349. Sarah C. says:

    I was just at Sephora last week!

  350. virginie says:

    Summer is almost gone, good and bad things happened, Please a better year ahead…

  351. Amy Z says:

    When I was home for the summer, I went to Sephora almost every other week! That store is so addictive

  352. Nina says:

    I haven’t been to Sephora since January!!!

  353. jess says:

    i wish I could still afford sephora! i only buy there now when I have a coup~!

  354. Tricia says:

    The last time I went to Sephora was two days ago– I bought Laura Mercier powder foundation. I like it so far!

  355. musical says:

    If I ever win this thingy, Tabster, I’ll send you a box-o-fur cream as a present! Love your stories :).

  356. Grace says:

    Karen, how is your summer going? Enjoying all the relaxation time ๐Ÿ™‚

  357. Amanda says:

    Life is too short to not live HAPPY!!
    My grandma was a constant reminder of this, although she lost her battle with leukemia last month, she still strived to remain happy until her final day…

    I hope I win **fingers crossed**
    I sure can use an extra dose of happiness right now and it’s almost impossible to not be happy in a Sephora store! ๐Ÿ™‚

  358. Barbie says:

    The last time I went to sephora was three weeks ago, it was torture cause i with my friend and i had no $$

  359. Linda says:

    It is raining.

  360. Lydia says:

    Would love to be chosen for the $50 egift to Sephora’s, I’m just starting out in learning how to do nail art so this would be really helpful to me!! Thanks for the opprotunity!!!

  361. Lisa S. says:

    What a great question for a giveaway. I used to work for Estee Lauder many years ago and it was a blast. I worked at the counter and later was a roving makeup artist. But I think that today if given the chance to start over, I would choose Dior. And if they turned me down for some crazy reason, I would pick Chanel. Thanks so much!

  362. Angela Clark says:

    Can hardly wait for the fall, and cooler weather! Can hardly wait for the Bay Area Fog to creep into Antioch…. ๐Ÿ™‚

  366. Lori says:

    I just went to sephora yesterday with my daughter.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  369. Louisa says:

    Hi Karen,
    I’ve been loving the eye tutorials you’ve been posting! They’ve given me some great inspiration and I have used a couple of tricks that you’ve taught us. To recreate some of the looks, I’m really eager to get the Naked2 palette ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Hope you had a great weekend and all my love to Tabs!

  370. Donna says:

    In Manhattan, dogs go shopping in Sephora all the time. Did you see that Philosophy’s new flavor is salted caramel hot cocoa?

  371. Cassidey says:

    I was just in Sephora last week picking up a travel Koh Gen Do Cleansing Water!

  372. Tricia says:

    Was in Sephora (an inside JCPenney one) on Friday. Checked out the Fall Nars collection but resisted for now!

  373. Thanks for another giveaway, Karen! Hope you’re having a good weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

    I wish i could win this.. ๐Ÿ™‚

  380. Stacy Z says:

    I went to Sephora right before I moved back home! I couldn’t resist its siren’s call and I ended up getting two Tarte products.

  381. Katherine says:

    I used to take my cat to the “office” when I was a grad student. It started when he was a kitten and I didn’t want to leave him at home all day, but I kept bringing him until he was about a year old. Everybody liked having him as the “lab” cat.

  382. Libby says:

    My sister and I went to Sephora on Friday and spent about an hour trying new things and playing with makeup. It’s one of our favorite things to do when we go shopping together.

  383. Chantel says:

    I am in desperate need of a new foundation! My skin has been a nightmare recently and nothing seems to be working! I have dealt with acne and I also have rosacea ๐Ÿ™ I have been getting IPL treatments done but haven’t been able to have one since June due to being in a different province than the clinic I go to. I’m lucky though, because a friend of mine is the technician so she fits me in and doesn’t charge the whole lofty $300 fee per treatment!
    I’ve been thinking that I want to try the Urban Decay Naked Foundation!
    Thanks for the chance to win! ๐Ÿ™‚

  384. Gail says:

    Beautiful Day at the beach today – back to work tomorrow

  385. Jessie says:

    When I need to think I either like to go out for a walk or for a solo trip to the movies if I just need to clear my head. It’s nice being alone, but also with other people around.

  386. Jia says:

    Sephora is just one big money sucker for me. I’m scared to go into it now, b/c I spend so much.

  387. Susan says:

    My Cat from Hell is my new TV obsession…which may be strange, since I don’t have a cat.

  388. Katie says:

    The last time I was at Sephora was about a week ago when I needed samples of MUFE Full Cover Concealer. The second-to-last time I was at Sephora was around Fourth of July at the huge Vegas store, and – wow – that place is like a beauty junkie’s heaven.

  389. Denise says:

    The last time I went to Sephora was January to pick up my birthday gift of the Fresh lip treatments. Obviously I’ve gone way too long without a trip there. I need to remedy that.

  390. Ada says:

    I have no cats – or any other pets, so there isn`t any issue with bringing cats to a workplace! I haven`t been to their store in ages – I mainly browse online for what I like.
    My favourite summer dress is a bright floral print, strapless, and a-line mini dress. LOVE IT.
    When I need to think, I usually go into my room, put my headphones, and listen to music. I would work for Makeup Forever – a brand that accommodates all skin tones well, OR YSL – their lipsticks are unreal!

  391. Leslie Cruz says:

    After all this back to school shopping bleh! It’ll be nice to shop for a little me time!

  392. Sherrie says:

    Just bust a move!!!!

  395. Mykeshia says:

    I need to add some more cobalt blue into my makeup wardrobe.

    I haven’t been to Sephora in over a month – went last month to pick up my birthday treat! I was on a nail polish no-buy last month, so I wasn’t really in the mood to buy any makeup or beauty products, to be honest! Now, I’m itching to get back there!

  409. Caitlin says:

    My county does not even have a Sephora in a JCPenney’s. I have to wait to go visit my dad in Tampa where there is a Sephora. Of course, online shopping always rocks, and I’m glad as that’s usually my only option. I love the look of the Stila Seoul palette!

  410. Tiffany says:

    I’ve been inside Sephora twice this week, trying to figure out whether I should buy the new UD Naked Skin foundation or Lancome Teint Idole Ultra…decisions, decisions.

  442. Kathrin says:

    Last time I went to Sephora was in the beginning of July and actually it was online. I bought my boyfriend his birthday present. If I had this gift card, I’d buy myself the Givenchy perfume I wanted to have for so long.

  443. BL says:

    I prefer MAC to Sephora because I get better service from the former, but I’ve been dying for the NARS Laguna/Bronzer duo. I’ve been wanting it for ages – I think it was the first high-end product I learned about when I started watching beauty vids on YT.

  486. chunyi says:

    The last time I was in a sephora was probably in July. And I saw the new selection of nail polishes and the pantone collection. I love sephora, but it makes a huge dent in my wallet everytime I go, which is been why I havent gone in two months.

  492. Rachel says:

    I love sephora but sephora here has insanely high markups! ๐Ÿ™ I pay $76 for the Makeup Forever HD foundation! Gosh, how ridiculous is that?!?!

    Illasmasqua is having a campaign to lower prices of cosmetics in Australia. Although I’m not from there I think it’s the BEST IDEA EVER!!!

  493. Emma R says:

    Sephora is going to deplete my bank account without a little help (from my friends)!
