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

Aw, just one more game! This is the one, I can tell! I can feel it in my bones. Come on, Kitty Glitter, come on! Mama needs a new pair of socks!


My favorite casino game is a penny slot machine called Kitty Glitter, and it’s kinda like Connect 4, except with cats, where you try to get 3-4 of the same cat pictures lined up in a row. The rows can go in pretty much every conceivable direction on the screen, even diagonal or zig-zagging.

I’m not a big gambler, but I could play Kitty Glitter for hours…assuming my pennies hold out, LOL!

Love this game!

Tabs will be disappointed to learn that there are no tabbies in Kitty Glitter. What a huge oversight by the developer!

Time for me to go test my luck one last time before we head home. Good luck to you in this weekend’s giveaway, and don’t forget to also enter the Burberry Beauty giveaway still going on now. That’s two ongoing giveaways, and one of them has 15 winners!

See you soon. πŸ™‚

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. 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. 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.”

    OrangeLipstickBlog recently posted … Meet some of my favorite scents!

  33. Rachel B. says:

    I have been inside a casino: once. And I think that’s enough for me, no more money, honey.

  34. Danielle says:

    Your blog is so much fun to read! Our last trip took us to Cleveland and Niagara Falls, and while there are casinos in both cities, I did not make it into any of them. Have a great time!

  35. Ashley Miller says:

    I would love to learn how to salsa!!

  36. Zoey says:

    Haven’t put any makeup on yet.

  37. Nicole says:

    Dry shampoo works sometimes for me.

  38. hazakaza says:

    I actually use dry shampoo every other day–it helps my hair color (bright red!) stick around a lot longer, and gives my short hair volume and texture! I use Lush’s No Drought, and I love the stuff.

  39. Alix says:

    Don’t dance, don’t gamble. Do buy makeup, though…!

  40. colleen boudreau says:

    The last trip I took was in 2006 to California for my senior year spring break.

  41. Ana B. says:

    I never gamble, I think it is ridiculous to throw money away on nothing. I’d rather take that money and go shopping or dining.

  42. Nkauj says:

    I do not know how to ballroom dance but am obsessed with watching it. I’d love to learn but that would probably require a very patient teacher as I don’t have ver good coordination.

  43. Jenny says:

    I’m a HUGE fan of dry shampoo. My hair gets oily so fast, but I hate washing it everyday – I think it dries out my ends too much. The problem is, I haven’t found a dry shampoo I really like. They all either smell funky or just don’t work as well as plain ol’ cornstarch.

  44. Mary Ann says:

    Currently have a cold… But live my “sick” voice. Cute cat btw!

  45. Danielle says:

    I have the misfortune to love a dry shampoo that seems to be hard to find – the Redken powder refresh.

  46. Kellie says:

    I am not really a gambler, but I have to say….I LURVE kitty glitter! Perfect crazy cat lady game. My hubby and I actually won about $60 on it last time we played in Vegas!

  47. Eileen says:

    i’m going to go outlet shopping this wkend =))

  48. AmyD says:

    i love the idea of dry shampoo, but with dark black hair, i can’t use e.g. the oscar blandi dry shampoos – too much white residue πŸ™

  49. Jordan says:

    the only things i’ve ever liked enough to buy back ups of are wet n wild’s born into privilege nail polish and revlon’s eyeshadow in peach sorbet (since they discontinued it) I don’t buy back ups of high end stuff usually because it doesn’t seem practical to have /spend a lot on extras that I might not get to/ decide i dislike before I finish.

  50. Rachel says:

    The only time I ever gambled was playing poker with my cousins in the summers. I was so terrible at it that once I ended up betting all my sheets and blankets, and I think I bet my little brother, too, and lost it all.

  51. Lynn says:

    Running all over 2 zip codes looking for Pureology Precious Oil Shampoo! Expensive, I hope I like it.

  52. Neela says:

    Last not visiting family trip (they live 2 hours away atm.. not for much longer!) was to visit my friends about 4 hours away. weekend of goofing off mostly.

  53. Lori says:

    I love dry shampoo, but for the life of me I can’t seem to rub it in well enough

  54. quimerula says:

    My hometown is on the Atlantic coast, so yes, I’ve seen the ocean.

  55. Lori says:

    I have multiple tubs of olay complete lying around my bathroom… BEST STUFF EVER.

  56. Khalilah says:

    I buy back-ups of mac blot powder because its so awesome. I also have 2 each of the ecotools finishing (use for skincare and stippling foundation and hd powder application) and buffing (for foundation powder and blush application) brushes.

  57. Julia says:

    I can’t think of any product I would intentionally buy back-ups for! There’s no product I love so much that I think I won’t be able to find a dupe of if/when it’s discontinued.

  58. Nikki A says:

    I never understood why people raved about the ocean until I saw something other than the chocolate milk-looking Gulf Coast water up close! Once I saw the turquoise Caribbean water, I was in love!

  59. Janet says:

    My kitty would be also be upset about no tabbies! It’s so nice of you to have two giveaways πŸ™‚

  60. Rikki says:

    Watching Hunger Games for the first time.
    It’s… okay.

  61. Dear Lord can i win this to buy that OCC lip tar. πŸ™‚

  63. AmyE says:

    Love my Klorane dry shampoo (the aerosol one)! Thank you for the weekly giveaways.

  64. Agata says:

    I am not a big gambler…casinos hold my interest for about 20 minutes πŸ™‚

    And I am going on vacation in 3 hours, sooo excited!

  65. Stacie says:

    I don’t actually have a backup of any of my make up.

  66. Tricia says:

    I love Batiste Dry Shampoo–makes my hair actually look like it’s been washed. Thanks for the giveaway!

  67. Roxanne says:

    I visited a casino once in Cripple Creek, Co. I quickly realized I wasn’t a gambler, lost interest and went on my merry way visiting the spectacular state. I’m sure I saved a lot of money as well.

  68. Tina says:

    The sun is finally coming out.

  69. TwirlyGirly says:

    Here’s my problem: My Sephora wishlist has about 200.00 worth of products on it, but my checking account only has about 5.00 worth of money in it. What to do? Enter Karen’s 50.00 Sephora E-Gift Card Giveaway, and pray to the makeup gods I win! Oh…and I also Tweeted as per your request in the hope of increasing my chance of winning. Here is the Tweet URL:

  70. Chelsey says:

  72. Rita says:

    I have not found a dry shampoo that I really like so far. I have only tried a couple of brands, but I was not really impressed. I want to keep searching though!

  73. Katrina says:

    Lazy Labor Day weekend at home – priceless!

  74. Jenna N. says:

    I went to a casino in Connecticut once. I enjoyed the fancy video-game style slot machines, with graphics and everything. There was a monopoly one and a Top Gun one I quite enjoyed, even though I was losing all my money!

  75. elle says:

    I really want to go to a MAC store…

  76. Rosie says:

    I am in love with Dr Jart BB cream. i have a sample tube that is almost gone. My skin feels and looks amazing since I started using it. If i win, I would definitely spend $36 on a full size!!

  77. Tierra says:

    Cant live without dry shampoo…and that Kitty Glitter game is hilarious! πŸ˜€

  78. Lynn says:

  79. Joyce says:

    Starting my first year of grad school! So excited!!

  80. Katrin says:

    I love to play Texas Hold’em Poker but I am not really good. I just don’t have a poker face. πŸ™‚

  81. Justine says:

    The only thingbI play in the casino is electronic roulette LOL

  82. Janet says:

    Oh yeah, I love the slots! Plenty of casinos out here in San Diego. In fact, I know that Kitty Glitter game. I just wish they had a doggie version of it. πŸ™‚

  83. Quinctia says:

    I don’t generally buy backups (unless nabbing my “next” mascara counts, since I go through those pretty fast and would hate to run out), but when Sally Hansen discontinued the HD nail polishes, not only did I buy the rest of the colors I didn’t already own, I got a second bottle of DVD. Blue/purple duochrome + glitter = awesome!

  84. Y. says:

    I miss the pacific ocean!

  85. LauraA says:

    Kitty Glitter!!!!! πŸ™‚

    Dry shampoo is the bomb. And I don’t really buy back-ups per se, but have about three canisters of different dry shampoos. There are some great formulations out there from a variety of brands.

    Have a wonderful weekend, and thanks again for another great giveaway opportunity!

  86. Chunyi says:

    One of the few things in makeup that I am obsessed with and buy several backups of are foundations and eyeliner. I also have several lipsticks, but I don’t have backups for them.

  87. Joanne E. says:

    Living in SoCal, yup, I’ve seen the Pacific.

  88. Alison says:

    It’s been a while since I’ve been on a trip, but on Monday, I’m headed to Italy! So exciting!

  92. kelly m. says:

    wow kitty glitter looks like a lot of fun!

  94. Bells says:

    I love gaming! And I’ve never tried dry shampoo.

  95. Crystal says:

    Oh my goodness if my husband and I really do go to Tahoe while on leave this holiday, I must find Kitty Glitter and play! XD

  96. Amy Z says:

    I took ballroom dancing with my bf in college and it was AMAZING! being able to dance together is such an aphrodisiac

  97. Step says:

    I like dry shampoo, but the aerosol kind always smells so weird.

  98. Jessie says:

    I wonder what it’s like to be the person trusted with the job of naming slot machines. Imagine if “Kitty Glitter” was your life’s work lol!

  108. Michelle says:

    Thanks for another great giveaway!

  109. I got my first bottle of dry shampoo recently and it works OK, but I somehow always get a bit of it on my hair and it becomes too dry πŸ™

  110. Tiffanie says:

    They should have a slot machine at Sephora!

  111. Samantha F. says:

    I bought backups for my brow pencils, partly because I like them a lot and partly because I found them on clearance and they are the perfect shade for my brows so I had to scoop them up.

  112. Kiara says:

    I used my Naked palette for the first time last night (I know, I’m super late on that one), and i’m in LOVE!

  113. raina99 says:

    I buy backups of mascara. Well technically not backups but I always have one in the cue to try out.

  114. Kris says:

    I’ll gest new brushes if I win.

  115. rach says:

    I need new foundation, this would be perfect! πŸ™‚

    September is here!

  123. Nicolle S says:

    I’ve seen the ocean from more places than I can count! It’s amazing πŸ™‚

  124. Andrea says:

    I really like LORAC’s lip glosses… it feels like I’m getting a lot for my money and they feel hydrating, which– being from Colorado — is such a necessity. Avoiding chapped lips can be a downright challenge.

    (and I LOVEEEE the ocean. Don’t get to see it enough πŸ™‚

  125. blkrox says:

    Love the ocean! Always wanted to be a mermaid, haha

  126. Miriam says:

    I just spent most of my day reading a book that was good for the most part till I got to the last 2 chapters, the whole story line went into a snowball effect. Guess I’ll go out and look for another book, maybe some suspense thriller type of book.

  127. Mallory F says:

    The last trip I took was from South Carolina all the way to Kansas! We just moved here almost 2 weeks ago. We’re hoping to settle down here and make it better than we were in SC. We’re part of the metropolis known as Kansas City, MO. It’s so overwhelming, but exciting for this small town girl to be living in a big city now. πŸ˜€ Also, I always keep backups of my favorite lip glosses. xP

  128. Susie says:

    I’m coming late to dry shampoo. I first tried Stila hair refresher in Jade Blossom, because I liked the scent. A white powder does not work on brown hair. I don’t know what they were thinking. I’m now trying the Oscar Blandi spray. It’s not bad. I’d like to find something less expensive. I’ll check your blog for suggestions. πŸ™‚

  129. helene says:

    Hope you’re enjoying your weekend away πŸ™‚

  130. Maomao says:

    Have a great day, Karen!

  131. irini says:

    I hate that I suck at dancing πŸ™

  132. I’m not sure i’d consider myself a gambler per say, but I love playing the mega jackpot games, I buy one ticket per drawing hoping I’ll win someday! πŸ™‚

    I just bought new sandals…but maybe I shoulda bought boots. All the new fall stuff is out!

  139. Rachel says:

    I never really have the money to gamble, so I stick to the penny slots! My husband and I went to a casino in the spring and actually did pretty well on them! I won about $50 and my husband won $115 – on one pull!!

  140. Mireya says:

    I’m not a big gambler, but when I have gone to a casino, I just park myself in front of a penny or nickel slot machine for a few hours.

  141. Cassidey says:

    I recently saw the Pacific Ocean for the first time during a trip to Kaua’i!

  142. Helen says:

    hope you are all having a nice weekend!

  143. Audrey says:

    This summer I took a trip to Hawaii for the first time! It was beautiful!

  144. I LOVE board games–I’m such a board game nerd!!! Seriously, I’d take a night in playing boardgames over a night on the town any day of the week!

  165. karen says:

    I’m so happy to have a three-day weekend this weekend. I actually went to Sephora today (I had to take my mom to the mall to do some returns), but while the one foundation I wanted to check out seemed like a good match based on my hand-swatch, the trip was not a success. I uncharacteristically sprayed on a perfume that I’d wanted to try without testing it on the blotter first and I paid for it!

  166. Denise says:

    Dry shampoo is suspicious.

  167. kprice says:

    On vacation in AK but just got into Seattle today and was able to check out their Sephora today by Pike’s Market! Alaksa was so beautiful.

  168. Caitlin says:

    The last trip I took was to Mexico… I was so excited when I got their and saw the tropical ocean! It was my first time to Mexico and I still couldn’t believe I was even there. Then I realized I didn’t bring my face wash or face cream! I had to use my moms face wash which gave me more zits than I already had!

    • Caitlin says:

      Oh and the face cream I was using as still am is from Sephora. It is the smashbox bb cream! I would totally recommend this cream to everyone!

  169. Julie Greenwood says:

    I love blackjack. Today we went river tubing for the first time – I didn’t wear any makeup.

  170. Stephanie Y says:

    I always have to put a few bucks in Kitty Glitter….never have won with that slot game though.

  171. auroragyps says:

    I have a few backups of nail colors that I love. The most recent one is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Mystic Lilac, from 2010. When I put mine on the other day, I realized I liked the color enough to try and find a couple more bottles. Luckily, there was one listing on Ebay for it that was going to expire in 14 hours, so I bought 2 of the last 3 bottles the seller had.

  172. shusheshe says:

    Nope, I’m not a gambler at all.

  173. julie says:

    Buxom lipgloss in the (now discontinued) shade of Eva is my back up worthy purchase. I have finished two and have two more waiting.

  174. Jeniie says:

    Dry shampoos are definitely on my long list of items I still need to try!

  175. sweeks1980 says:

    I love dry shampoo to volumize my hair.

  176. Thanks for this awesome giveaway, Karen! πŸ™‚

    Yes, I buy back-ups of nail polish probably more often than I should. And a lot of times, I end up giving them away as just-because surprises to my fellow nailphiles. πŸ™‚

    I love dry shampoo for my bangs with second day hair.

  184. Lori says:

    It’s been a LOOONG time since I’ve taken a trip but I’m planning already for a vacation to Florida in early December (can we say WDW?) πŸ˜€

  185. I love blush but I always lose them so I need to buy in pairs, cheap ones, just in case.

  186. E says:

    My last trip was to New York – where I also swam in the ocean!

  187. Mariee says:

    I’ve tried dry shampoo a few times, but I definitively prefer the regular kind.

  188. Kimi says:

    I like dry shampoo, but I think I like baby powder better

  189. Rach says:

    A Sephora gift card would really come in handy right about now πŸ™‚ I’m not much of a gambler (so hard to see that hard-earned money slip away), but when I do I love to play blackjack. The social interaction is so fun compared to say, slot machines!

  190. aradhana says:

    i rarely go to casinos etc…but when i do, i love the slot machines! never seen the kitty glitter though…

  191. Tatyana G says:

    I live about 40 minutes away from the ocean but I only visited it a few times this summer. Busy busy life. The last time I saw it was a few weeks ago from my hospital room window.

  192. Edith says:

    I want to win. I need skin products.

  193. Terri B says:

    I live very near the ocean, and here in the Emerald Coast of Florida, the water can be transparent green. It’s amazing!

  194. Shannon says:

    Not a fan of dry shampoo–I want to like it, but it makes my hair stiff and straw-like.

    I want to love dry shampoo, but I haven’t found one that soaks up the oil!

  199. Ash Johnson says:

    I live in Florida, but rarely ever see the ocean, even though it is less than an hour from my house. I’m just not really a big fan.

    The last time I was in Vegas, I had good luck with the nickel slots!

  201. April says:

    My mom and I used to walk on the boardwalk on Saturday morning during the summer when I was back from college. Loved seeing the ocean early in the morning.

  202. Ash G says:

    I want to go home. I’m in Dallas because work evacuated me due to Hurricane Isaac, and I can’t go home until our Main Office has power back πŸ™ Some retail therapy would really be nice…

    Last trip I took was to San Diego in July.

  204. Connie Lan says:

    I am not a gambler but I love playing card games. I am not a very good dancer. Um… I think I prefer normal shampoo because I think they actually clean your hair more. Just this summer I went to Taiwan to visit my grandparents. Yes, I love the ocean way more than mountains. I love urban decay eyeshadows, the colors are just pure beauty and they come in a lot of shades.

  225. Ellen says:

    I’m indifferent to gambling, but I really wish I knew how to play poker. It looks like fun.

    I also really like casinos, for some reason, which is funny because I’ve heard that most people don’t like the casino atmosphere.

  226. Solangel says:

    Dry shampoo…well, just like normal shampoo, I feel like it’s no use to buy an expensive brand. The 2$ Suave one is even better than the 10$ I got a Sally’s!

  227. Annaham says:

    I am looking forward to the Urban Decay holiday collection, especially the Ocho Loco eye pencil set!

    $50 would be helpful in acquiring some of the Andy Warhol collection in October!

    I can’t gamble. I’m not a risk taker by any means. Too afraid I’d lose it all.

  234. Barbara says:

    Want to win because I’m still lemming Naked 2!

  235. Rebecca says:

    Dry shampoos are a fail for me so far. I haven’t found one that smells really good (least offensive are Oribe and Not Your Mother’s) and many of them smell just bad (Ojon, Blandi). The worst part is how they are empty after five uses, followed closely by how they make my head itch and how I have to wash my hair within 8 hours of use or it’s a matted greasy mess. Related closely – why do Ojon products smell so bad? Even though they work, I can’t have that stank on my head. The deep conditioner smells like the ashtray of a 1974 Pinto.
    If I win the Sephora card, I’m buying that Hourglass brush.

    Hey Karen! Hope you’re enjoying your vacation this long weekend. I’m currently able to see the ocean every day because I’m vacationing in Maine! The only thing I’ve bought backups of so far is Lush Dream Cream. I buy a tub of that goodness before my current one runs out because I have yet to find a cream that I like better. Just wish it was ten dollars cheaper!

  246. Amy says:

    I love dry shampoo!

  247. Shelly says:

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend Karen! =)

  248. theresa says:

    I love the idea of dry shampoo.. though it never seems to keep my oily hair at bay. So until they create a great dry shampoo, it’ll be a product that never was (for me) :(.

  249. MelodyJ says:

    I would like backups of Nailtiques Formula 2 plus. It’s the best thing for my nails.

    Thanks for the giveaway!! i’m in love of the new guerlain fall collection, specially, the Rouge g L’EXTRAIT, so beatiful !!!

  256. Linda says:

    That machine is pretty awesome! I’m not a gambler just because my luck is so terrible; I never come out ahead every time I go to Vegas. So I figure that if I’m gonna waste my money, I might as well spend it on something I can enjoy for a while (my rationalization for buying more makeup πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ ).

    Im getting tired of all the rain in Sweden.. so this price would really cheer up my day πŸ™‚

  258. Natty says:

    Hi Karen,

    I’m not really a gambler – I always feel guilty blowing money in slot machines, although they are a guilty pleasure. My favorite are the quarter machines. When I lose, I’m always thinking about what I could of bought with that money. Iol

  259. Anne says:

    Hope U had fun in Tahoe Karen! I love going to the casino but I don’t gamble just like looking around feel the excitement and look at other people win lol

  260. Soo says:

    I’m not a gambler simply because I think I’ll get addicted to it. the whole *just one more* attitude would get me. I’ve never been to Las Vegas or a casino, but I do want to go to both at least once just for the shiggles one day (when I’m much more comfortable and financial stable with blowing some money)

  261. Tiff says:

    Hmm…dry shampoo. See, my problem is that every time I go swimming, my hair gets soaked and I have to wash it again. I’d be nice if there was a solution to that problem…

  273. Caches says:

    i love me some opaque glosses that last all day.. so if it has to be kinda sticky, i will deal with it.

  274. Sue C. says:

    I’ve always lived within a 40 minute drive to the ocean and can’t imagine living much further away. Although I don’t go to the coast often (just a few times a year) , I like knowing it’s there in case I feel the need to breeze fresh ocean air.

    Have a great weekend Karen!

  275. Brenda says:

    Hmmmm dry shampoo is okay. I wish I could travel the world and see all the amazing things out there and get to try all the different foods :-).

  311. Julianna says:

    I love dry shampoo! I have super thick, super long hair and the humidity in VA makes drying my hair naturally take forever ( I don’t like to blow dry) so dry shampoo has allowed me to stretch washing my hair one day longer! It’s great!

  312. Amanda Garrett says:

    I’m with Tabs… wish I could go to Sephora today!

  313. Olive says:

    my next purchase will be a guerlain foundation.

  315. Amanda says:

    I don’t gamble. I’m boring.

  316. Katie says:

    Dry shampoo is my savior in the mornings when I have little time to get ready for class. I particularly love the Batiste line — affordable, non-irritating odor, gets the job done.

  317. Jeanette Barrientos says:

    I love makeup!!!

  322. kalcedon says:

    Alverde’s sleek lipstick in Red Sierra. Best kind of deep but wearable red shade (like my lips in a deeper, richer bordeaux-er version)… that I would stack upon.

  323. YadiQ says:

    I have a short attention span for gambling
    Glitter kitty is sure though!

  324. Suzi says:

    I found that using an eyeshadow like rice paper or shroom in the inner tear duct with satin taupe makes satin taupe more wearable for my warm completion

    There should be a tabby in Kitty Glitter!!!!

  326. Sandy says:

    I have some dry shampoo but my hair looks best if I wash it daily so my son uses the dry shampoo. Love your blog Karen!

    I do know how to salsa – I learned in college. I haven’t done it in several years though.

  328. Carol says:

    I buy a MegaMillions and a Powerball ticket every week, if that counts as gambling. I’ve never played any card games (don’t know any!) or even the slot machine. I’ve never set foot in a casino before but maybe someday, more so for the shows and cheap eats (I saw a program on PBS about 99 cent half-pound hot dogs in Vegas. LOL) than the games though.

  329. Caity says:

    I’m just getting ready to launch my new blog and YouTube channel! Very exciting times. Kitty Glitter always looks like fun!

  330. April says:

    I’m a sophomore in college and I just stumbled across your site. I love that you do tutorials for girls with Asian eyes, it’s so hard to find a good tutorial that fits my eye shape. But your site has done wonders for me. Thank you!

  331. Jennifer L says:

  350. Kayla says:

    Never been much of a gambler, it’s fun occasionally though!

  351. I love dry shampoo! I use it at least twice a week. I do have to say that I almost always put my hair up when I use it because I feel like it still doesn’t look great when it’s not freshly washed. Saves me time in the shower though!

  352. Gertrude says:

    I found a really nice dry shampoo from aveeno!

  353. melissa says:

  357. Sara Smith says:

    I am…a terrible gambler. I have okay luck at Craps, but mostly when I’m rolling for other people, not when I’m playing myself! Guess half good luck is better than none at all!

  358. AnieJ. says:

    I am so excited about Burberry…but this will go a long way towards some becca!

  359. LaToya Hargrove says:

  360. Sarah says:

    I’m procrastinating on a paper right now. I really REALLY don’t want to write it.

    Only about 2,000 words left!

    I LOVE dry shampoo! I used to not understand it, until I got bangs. Now I can’t live without it!

  365. Elizabeth says:

    I tried dried shampoo but it didn’t work for me. I loved the added volume, but sometimes it looked like I had dandruff. Maybe I used too much.

  366. Iliana R says:

    I love using dry shampoo when I feel lazy to wash my hair!

  367. Annie Hudson says:

    Hi Karen! Thanks for all the amazing giveaways….I know that one day it’ll be me and I’ll get to make a special trip to Sephora :0
    My favourite Dry Shampoo hands down is made by TIGI. CANNOT live without it and usually have at least 2 at home.
    We just got back from our local Waterpark and while it was so much fun, I’m so sunburnt. You’d think in my 30s I’d know better. I used sunscreen and even reapplied but still πŸ™
    Anyways….time to quit whining! Thanks again and have a great Labor Day

  379. I went to Sephora today……for the first time ever! I bought the Makeup Forever Full Cover concealer and was just googling it to read reviews and I found you! So I read your review and now I’m excited the girls there recommended it. I added you to my reader and can’t wait to explore your blog! Yay!!!!

  380. Katie says:

    Dry shampoo is my religion. I love the Dove one (as long as I twist the top so it doesn’t run out). Being a redhead, those white streaks look pretty stupid, but this leaves no residue. I absolutely love it.

  381. jane says:

    i think i’ll go down to boston tomorrow. i’m excited πŸ˜€

  382. Gail says:

    Love a long weekend

  384. audrey m says:

    love dry shampoo when i go overboard on the styling products and need to get the greasy look outta my hair. my fav palette which i have a back up of is urban decays rollergirl . i just now discovered and love your review of it where you suggest things to do with the hot pink shade. ive been only using it as a light crease color over suspect but now i cant wait to try a couple of your ideas out.. i am not much of a blog follower but yours is one of the select few i keep coming back to. keep up the great work:)

  394. Marilyn says:

    Nars Dragon Girl has been on my wish list for far tooooo long!!!!! *sigh*

  395. Joy says:

    I think I’ve gambled twice in my life. Freshman post-prom had a casino theme. So I’m assuming I did at that time. And I was invited to a poker game once. I had to be taught how to play but I definitely had beginners luck and won like $20.

  396. Sarah C. says:

    Dry shampoo’s a life saver!!!!

  397. Vanessa says:

    Hi everyone!

    I use dry shampoo a lot. I can wash my hair every three days, but just the very top might get oily depending on the weather / my physical activity — so dry shampoo helps out a lot.

    I buy back-ups of Revlon Colorstay eyeliner in black.

  398. jess says:

    yay its almost fall

  399. Sara says:

    Not a gambler at all the first time I went to Vegas I lost $30. I could have bought something at Sephora!

  400. christine says:

    I love video poker!

  401. Pepper says:

    Am going on a trip to Arkansas to see my daughter and her new hubby. I buy a lot of pink coral nail polish. Love it! I dont gamble cos I like a sure thing. πŸ˜‰

  402. Devi says:

    I was browsing the Prescriptives website today..great brand, sad it’s gone.

  403. Liz says:

    I play Lotto every week. It’s my retirement plan! (kidding)

  404. meghan says:

    I LOVE dry shampoo. Oscar Blandi’s non-aerosol shampoo is a little fussy but it smells awesome and really does make my hair look less greasy. Thanks for the giveaway Karen!

  405. Lynda says:

    i don’t understand jane austen but she seems cool

  406. Carina says:

  407. Tran says:

    It’s funny, my parents are big gamblers, but I never gamble at all!

  408. Paula says:

    I miss the Pacific Ocean!

  409. KaylaP says:

    I think the one product I have backed up is MAC’s By Candlelight Mineralized Skin Finish, it’s such a nice glowy highlighter for me! I seriously have like 5 of them plus the one I use now that has a big dip in it lol…

  410. Casey says:

    I never gamble- I have terrible luck with it and would rather have my money go somewhere more concrete!

  411. Crystal says:

    I’m so thrilled to be going to Tahoe in two weeks!

  412. Rebekah says:

    Have you tried any of those special cat wipes? The ones that are like Wet Wipes and Febreze all in one for felines? I think they might be a good investment for my dirty little friends.

  413. Ella says:

    We got really nice beaches here in the Philippines! I dream to have a beachfront house or cabin when I and my husband retire!

  414. I absolutely LOVE Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner and Kat Von D Tattoo Liner, so I buy backups of those, but the latter is only available to me on Sephora online as the Sephora stores here in Malaysia don’t carry the makeup range (And most other brands that Sephora online carries e.g. Hourglass, butter London, NARS, Illamasqua, Becca, which is a huge shame as I’d love to try out all the other brands!).
