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

Late start today! Very late start. Right after I crawled out of bed, I came downstairs and tried to figure out a tech thing that I’ve been thinking about, using a camcorder as a web camera for Skype. I had some, I don’t know, fancy idea involving a tripod and a camcorder and — anyway, I couldn’t get it to work.


Yep, nothing eats up the hours like little tech projects. C’est la vie, I guess. Such is life in 2012.

Anywho, it’s good to finally talk to you. I hope you had a nice Friday night. I was so pooped that I turned in around 10, just totally wiped out from my trip down to Southern California, but I feel like a new woman today. ๐Ÿ™‚

Good luck in this weekend’s Sephora e-gift card giveaway. I hope you enter, and don’t forget, you can enter twice — once in the comments and once through Twitter. The deets are down below.

Talk to you soon. I think I’m gonna go sneak in a run now on the treadmill.

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.”

  27. sweeks1980 says:

    I can use either a Mac or a PC, but I tend to prefer PCs (if only because of the price point).

    My favorite magazine is a much harder question :). I enjoy “The New Yorker,” but I finally gave it up because I didn’t have time to read it each week (and I felt guilty for buying it when I didn’t read it cover to cover). Right now, my favorites include “Mental Floss,” “The Atlantic,” “Real Simple,” and “Allure.”

  53. Rita says:

    I am a PC. I nearly switched over but the laptop I got runs as fast (or faster) than a Macbook Pro, and that means I can play games to my hearts content.

    I’m a Mac…but am a slave to PC Mon through Fri @ work!

  69. hazakaza says:

    Wait, is white eyeshadow all of the sudden verboten? Do we no longer use white eyeshadow? I really like them! It opens up my eyes, wakes me up, and makes lighter-colored eyeliners (lighter purples, say, or medium blues or lighter browns) look more dramatic than they actually are.

  70. Katie says:

    I would totally wear white eye shadow!

  71. Cheryl says:

    I cant wait til the Cinderella Sephora Collection comes out. I heard they were coming out with 2 other princess collections ๐Ÿ™‚

  77. Roan says:

    I love Sephora!!

  78. Deanne says:

    Best move I’ve seen this year was Moonrise Kingdom. I know Wes Anderson isn’t everybody’s cup of tea, but I love him. And Bill Murray. I love Bill Murray. Who doesn’t love Bill Murray?

  79. Jeniel Braun says:

    Mac all the way!

  86. Rebekah says:

    All of the pictures you put Tabs in just kill me!

  100. nicolle says:

    hahaha i don’t think i am either(mac or pc)! i have been a massage therapist for 12 years, so let’s just say that technology has passed me by while i have been working in my “office”. my technology has been a candle and a cd player! although i have upgraded to an ipod. ๐Ÿ™‚

  101. Amanda G says:

    I’ve totally worn white eyeshadow before, with black black black at the corners and in the crease to set it off. Very dramatic.

  102. Valentina says:

    Do you like wearing heavy or little to no makeup? A lot of people mask their faces with makeup and some people don’t wear makeup. How do you feel about the topic?

  103. Christin says:

    I love Sephora!

  104. Kayvid says:

    I’m a huge Skype fan. Use it to talk to my parents and in laws over the weekends. It’s awesome!

  105. Kim says:

    PC. Macs scare me.

  106. Denise says:

    i need this in my life.

  109. GIL says:

    PC til I die!! Plus, I can never shake that habit of grazing the cursor over to the top right of the screen to close it, as opposed to the top left to find that darn red “x.” =)

  110. Kate & Zena says:

    Yay for Saturday giveaways!

  111. Rita says:

    Hi Karen! Thanks for all the makeup info!

  112. Rach says:

    The best movie I’ve seen in a while was Pitch Perfect, which I watched last night. I’ve gotta say, I was pleasantly surprised by it. I was expecting something cheesy but still fun, and it was actually really smart and entertaining. It had a good story, good characters and I really enjoyed some of the humor. Totally recommend it ๐Ÿ™‚

  113. Heaven says:

    I would love to win!!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  114. Maria says:

    I’m SO excited! I knew that OCC Lip Tars were coming to Sephora, but I was a little skeptical in thinking that they wouldn’t come to Canada right away (we tend to get things later), but I was pleasantly surprised and found one yesterday! I bought Strumpet and am now waiting for a few in the mail. LOVE them!

  115. Nora says:

    I remember my first real eyeshadow purchase….it was called “Blooming Colors” from Maybelline….. such a LONGGGG time ago ๐Ÿ™‚

  116. Thomas Murphy says:

    the best movie I was this year was Batman

  117. Tamara F says:

    I’m a mac! oh and white eyeshadow? nah son. That’s just not for me. I’m like NC 44. No. LOL.

  118. Alison says:

    Mac! I’m not so great with computers, but have never had trouble with my apple. It is so frustrating when tech stuff takes up all your time….

  119. I’ve won shimmery white eye shadow. I liked it. Also, funniest movie I saw this year was 21 Jump Street (on DVD). I couldn’t believe how insanely funny it was. Or, maybe I had just gone temporarily insane. lol.

  120. Bel says:

    Today I went to CVS for the Wet n Wild bogofree sale, and scored two blushes: Mellow Wine and Pearlescent Pink, they are far better pigmented than the Milani blushes, so worth it.

  121. Emilee says:

    I was just at Sephora playing with the nail polish- I’d put that sephora gift card to good use ๐Ÿ™‚

  122. Ambrrr says:

    Fingers crossed, there are about 97 things off the top of my head I want from Sephora.

    I luv me some Sephora.

    I finally just saw the Dark Knight Rises this past week. Anne Hathaway (and her makeup) looked absolutely gorgeous!

  130. April C. says:

    I am a Mac user and I really don’t think that I would wear white eyeshadow, I think it looks funny on me.

  131. Iris says:

    I’m a PC girl even though Macs are way prettier and cooler. PCs are just so much more user-friendly for daily computer-ing.

  132. BooBooNinja says:

    I <3 depotting makeup and consolidating everything.
    Of course, this would be a different story if I had anything that came in luxe packaging! ๐Ÿ˜€

  133. Mary says:

    I’m a mac. ๐Ÿ™‚ I got my mom’s old Mac when I was 8 and it’s been love ever since, mainly because I played a lot of lemmings as a kid…

  134. Alison says:

    Skype is really great when you are collaborating on work projects with people from different locations!

  135. Krista says:

    I’ve never used Skype… that makes me feel really, really old.

  136. Carla says:

    I’d be thrilled since sephora already takes a good chunk of my pay check!

  137. Siobhanne says:

    I do wear white eyeshadow (of course, I’m really pale, so it looks quite natural!). Have a great weekend!

  138. Saddy says:

    The best movies I’ve seen this year have been “The Man from Nowhere” (Korea) and “The Raid” (Indonesia). They were both FANTASTIC (if you love graphic crime/action movies). As for a 2012 American movie, definitely The Avengers!!

    White eye shadow on my brown skin? Nope. Maybe as part of a Halloween costume…

  139. Wenz says:

    IM A MAC CHIC! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Had to work today so tomorrow will be super lazy day…I say that while giving the overflowing laundry basket a side eye LOL!

  140. Lala says:

    I’m a mac =)

  141. Nicole says:

    Viva PC!!

  142. Arianne says:

    Hey Karen! Do you ever feel like no matter how much you try to organize your stuff, they seem to always get even messier after? Because that’s how I feel right now. Hahaha… back to sweeping now…

    Hope you’re having a great weekend so far! Scherbie and I are celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving with turkey. ๐Ÿ™‚ Kisses to my nephew.

    PC all the way! Thanks as always for the giveaway! ๐Ÿ™‚

  144. Liz says:

    If I win I’d like to get the Urban Decay Vice palette!

  145. Lori says:

    PC for me..MAC doesn’t do what I need in my computer tasks.

  146. Kristi says:

    Still have my very first Bobbi Brown Palette! Still brings a smile to my face when I see it – it’s silly really that I hang on to it. But it marked what I felt like was my entrance into the grown up world. Happy weekend to you & Tabs!

  147. Mariah says:

    <3 the giveaway!

  148. Mina says:

  155. Yuri says:

    I need fall makeup ๐Ÿ˜€ pick me

  156. I’m obscessed with Glamour UK – it’s by far my favorite mag – great spreads, and just enough trashiness to make it fun. I live for those “My fiance was run over by the florist’s truck on our wedding day” type tragedy stories – I always read them first:)

  159. Evelyn says:

    I have used one of those style makeover things, still haven’t found a hairstyle that actually looks good. But make up looks good, especially when purchased with a Sephora gift card!

  160. Sherry says:

    I played at Sephora today! Texas is always hot hot hot and at a whopping 53 cool degrees today, there is no better place to hang out. I also used a few of your Twitter ideas and followed them up at the Sephora store today, went home with a new head full of ideas for makeup. The Andy Warhol lip glosses are on my wish list.

  161. Lisa says:

    My cat, Calvin, thinks my laying on the floor is the perfect time for him to fluff my hair with his teeth.

  162. Jessica K says:

    I’m a Mac. My favorite movie thus far has been Looper although by Christmas time it may just be Les Miz. And yes, I used to have to wear white eyeshadow from lashline to brow bone for my dance competitions. It was lovely hahaha ๐Ÿ™‚

  163. Elizabeth Chan says:

    I am dying to try the Benefit porefessional!

  164. My favorite movie this year is the avengers but yet I hate the super heroes but I fell in love with this movie it’s was so great but I lost my movie stubรฎยโ€œ

  165. Anna says:

    I am in desperate need of a trip to Sephora! Waiting for their friends and family sale though.

  166. Tatyana G says:

    i have a very old Victoria’s secret peach body lotion that someone gifted me when I was in high school. I don’t use it, but i like the scent and it’s sentimental.

  167. auroragyps says:

    I’m a PC user & gamer, although I don’t play as much as I used to.

  168. Jenny says:

    Playing my pandaren monk!

  169. Katie says:

    Definitely a PC – all my colleagues swear by Macs, but then when something goes wrong they just have to get a whole new one, whereas I can just grab a cheap spare part for mine and fix it myself!

    I saw Looper on Wednesday and thought it was great – Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Emily Blunt were fantastic, and the plot was very well done.

  170. Deborah says:

    Finally got ahold of the Becca Moonstone perfector. Very nice, though maybe even TOO luminizing. Haven’t gotten my application down pat yet. ๐Ÿ™‚

  174. Kris says:

    If I win, I’ll get WEN hair cleaner-conditioner.

  175. KaylaP says:

    I have to say since I have been using computers for about .. 19-20 years? I’m 25 now but I started using it when I was about 4-5 years old! lol I have always used PC! MAC is nice and all but it’s a bit pricey for me that and I am still trying to get the hang of it! So I will stick to my tried and true Windows ๐Ÿ™‚

  176. Crystal says:

    First time taking my little one to Chuck E. Chesse tonight and let me just say that it will be the last. For a very long time at least! Oooh I need some time to chill…

    I’m a PC, Macs are way outside my budget! I’ve never Skyped-it would be great since I’m in a long-distance relationship, but he doesn’t even have a computer ๐Ÿ™ Oh,and white eyeshadow + nw50 skin= does not compute.

  198. Beth says:

    My favorite movie this year is Moonrise Kingdom. It’s fabulous!
    I’m watching a iCarly marathon with my daughters, we are about to do our nails. Grabbed a bunch of the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure line that were on sale at Walgreens for $1.99! Can’t beat that!

  199. Missy M says:

    Mac at home, PC at work.

  200. My favorite movie this year was The Avengers! ๐Ÿ˜€

  201. Daria Rokk says:

    I never thought I’d go on a beauty website since I always considered myself a rather self-sufficient connoisseur in terms of what’s good and what’s bad for my face/body/mind. But the more I mature, the more I enjoy making use of this sense of social community whereby we all seem to take pride in what makes us so special: our femininity.
    At the moment rather steady and composed in terms of make-up, would not mind exploring the utterly feminine side of beauty (red lipstick, vamp cat look, bold nail polish colours etc) – without bordering on vulgar, since that would be fatal for my career.

  202. Mai says:

    Doing a serious smoky cat eye today – I am totally amazed that this gel eyeliner has not given me raccoon eyes! Small victories ๐Ÿ˜€

    i use both macs and PCs, can’t decide which one i like more!

    I’ve actually never used a Mac. I hate Windows, but I like PC gaming, so I have to have a PC. I think I’m gonna end up with a iPad of some sort to do the basic stuff on though.

    Tea and cupcakes sounds like the best date ever. And I like Macs because they’re pretty, but I can’t really use them. Hmmm.

  220. Stacee says:

    Definitely a PC. I remember when we had to use MACs for our photography class and it was just too much of a drag to get used to. I guess people like what they grew up with and I grew up with a PC ๐Ÿ˜‰

  221. Ashley says:

    Keeping my fingers crossed!

  222. Judy says:

    I’m a PC user. I find Mac user interface unintuitive and not user-friendly. I find I have that problem with most Apple products, especially iPhone. You can do exactly what they want you to do, nothing more. Really frustrating for users who want more.

  223. Mireya says:

    I’m definitely a PC girl. I don’t get the hype around Macs. I’ve used them and they’re perfectly fine, but I can’t see wanting to switch. But then again, I don’t seem to ever have the problems that people are always complaining about with PCs.

  224. Katie says:

    I just had some awesome Indian food. (Kinda veering into food coma territory.) Makes up for a sucky Satuday spent studying (look at all those S’s) for midterms…

    Today was pretty productive. Hubs got new eye glasses, we cashed in our spare change @ the bank, got my car washed, went grocery shopping and then a Costco run. You know I didn’t get of Costco for less than $200. A good chunk of that went to our new Keurig Platinum, though. We’ve already brewed 4 cups of coffee today. I’m wired! ๐Ÿ™‚

  246. I would totally rock white eyeshadow.

  253. Alexis W (M0rg3nst3rn) says:

    I think that it is really awesome how you do these giveaways. I think that it is really cool/sweet of you.

    If I would win the giftcard I think I would totally use it on something from the upcoming Cinderella collection that sephora is having. I love Disney movies and so does my little one. I saw that mirror and it looks beautiful. I would probably also buy some more Tarina Tarantino since they are getting rid of it at Sephora…

    I recently started mixed Martial arts and I love it. I am enjoying it so much that I figured I would never do a tournament BUT if I get good enough, I think I would totally do one next year. It might be fun, it is already fun learning from all of the other girls and even some guys help out oo.

    Geez, I’m so tired. i am completely pooped and just rambling, lol.

  268. layla says:

    haha, yes, I keep a few eyeshadows that I bought during my college days. (its been been 5 years since I graduated) Not that I’m going to use them, I just had a really great time with my friends when we went to get them. ๐Ÿ™‚ and they remind me of the great afternoon we had!

  272. Mere M. says:

    First, I should say that I’ve been a big, lurking, longtime fan of your blog. You are very funny and extremely informative–not to mention gorgeous and cat-loving! : ) I have many much-loved, much-used drugstore beauty finds, thanks to you.

    Am I keeping a beauty product for sentimental reasons? Yes! I bought a John Frieda leave-in color glaze for brunettes on my last trip to the Boots on Oxford’s Cornmarket Street, the day before I left. I spent a year at Oxford as a visiting student and I loved that huge Boots (a drugstore with a department store-worthy beauty section that included Lancome and Chanel stalls). Long story short, I still have a tube of that glaze on my bathroom counter, but can’t quite bring myself to toss it. : P

  282. I actually do wear white eyeshadow! My go-to brow bone highlight is Bobbi Brown Bone, which is an off-white. I use my 217 with it, so it disappears into my skin but leaves my brow bone highlighted for sure! It’s like magic!

  285. Supriya says:

    I’ve been a PC my entire life but I’m slowly converting to MAC with all the cool apple products out there now ๐Ÿ™‚ happy Sunday!

  286. Kate says:

    Both a PC and a Mac! I know, I know, I’m a heretic! But we have both computers and I love them both. I remember when Skype was first introduced and becoming a “thing”. It was really cool to think about seeing someone thousands of miles away AND being able to talk to them. Then again, I also remember dial-up Internet and life BEFORE the internet, so clearly I’ve lived through the Dark Ages.

  287. Jan T. says:

    I have an 18 year old Russian Blue who thinks Tabs is doing a fine job of keeping you on your toes! He must be an excellent boss! I know Gorby is taking notes so I can serve him in the same capacity!

    My 5 year old laptop is acting weird. . . I’m sure it’s time for a new one. A Sephora gift card would be a lovely diversion from all the tech stuff.

    I am definitely a PC person. I know I know everyone says that MACs are amazing, but I am just so comfortable with my PC and it does everything I need it to do so it’s good for me! And of course I’ve used Skype… it’s the best invention ever to keep in touch with loved ones far away!

  319. Janet says:

    I’ve tried white eyeshadow, but it’s not a daily thing for me!

  320. Patrice D says:

    Karen, hello! I can’t tell you how happy I am that I’ve found your makeup blog. I’m Filipino, too, and it’s been pretty difficult to rely on swatches and reviews online when the beauty blogger’s skin tone is so far off from mine. Thank you for your blog!

  334. Bre says:

    Hello! First, thank you for creating this give-away. It’s very kind of you! ๐Ÿ™‚ I currently use a MAC, after using a PC for seven years. I like them. I am a twenty-six year old teacher. I teach children who are amazing and brave, and they all have diagnosed learning disabilities and ADHD. Funny thing is, so do I. Everyday, I feel fortunate enough to be doing something I love and it makes me feel like all of the struggles I’ve personally gone through regarding school and life in general all worth it. I’m a Korean adoptee, and when I came across your blog, I was happy to see an Asian American woman who is both articulate and beautiful. Even though I grew up in the inner city and around diversity in most senses of the word, I still felt ‘different.’ I just am glad to see more women of color having and providing cosmetic reviews and blogs regarding many other issues. As for white eyeshadow, I have worn it! I like Vanilla by Urban Decay because it’s not pure white; it has a golden white tone. I am currently wearing it now, as well as UD eyeliner in Evidence, a shimmery navy blue eyeliner. I wear UD Naked Foundation in Shade 7 and since I’m a bit tanner but not 7.5 cause it’s for rosy/ pink undertones and I’m golden, I mix it with Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer in Tan. This is the only makeup I wear during work from seven in the mornj g I six at night. I love makeup though, but don’t wear it unless its the weekend. I’ve babbled on and on. Thank you for reading and best wishes to the winner! ๐Ÿ™‚

  335. Jill says:

  355. Carol says:

    PC for me.

  356. Jordan says:

    I actually do wear white eyeshadow, mostly b/c I am pale though hard to get a good highlight when you are pale

  357. Eileen says:

    I love to use white eyeshadow to brighten my tear ducts! It doesn’t look fake because I’m so pale haha ๐Ÿ™‚

  358. Suzi says:

    I don’t think white es would look so great on my nc40 skin tone

    I have never used Skype.

  362. Nobu says:

    Having a lazy Sunday! But you need those now and then. I hope you are having a great day ๐Ÿ™‚ it’s cold and rainy in VA but I have the heat on with warm apple cider.

  363. onegreatsmile says:

    I’m a pc. And I use Skype to talk to my sister who lives in Switzerland. Technology has come a long way from the tissue box sized rotary dial phones of yore!!!!

  364. Tingting says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! ๐Ÿ™‚

  365. Gail says:

    Have an HP all in one – kinda like a MAC but I’m sure MAC is much better.

  366. Lisa G-L says:

    Hi Karen! I am definitely a PC. I use Skype to stay in touch with my little cousins (who are not so little anymore) while they’re away at college. Thank you for the giveaway! ๐Ÿ™‚

  367. M says:

    I hate talking on the phone, video chatting is the way to go!

  368. knownever says:

    If I were to win I would totally buy the illamasqua mint green cream shadow and some laura mercier creme de pistache bath products. Having a revived mint green moment!

  369. Stephanie C says:

    I am a PC and for the life of me cannot figure out skype. ๐Ÿ™‚ maybe i do not have the patience. ๐Ÿ™‚

  370. Denise says:

    I do keep old makeup for sentimental reasons. I don’t have it in a special place or anything, but whenever I clean out my makeup, there are certain things I just can’t toss because of strong memories I have attached to them.

  371. Jody says:

    I iz a Mac.

  372. TrippyPixie says:

    I’m definitely a PC person. I think that a Mac is great for doing any sort of graphic project, but for my needs (word processing and a web browser), a PC gets the job done. Not to mention that it’s much cheaper.

  373. Rahaf says:

    I really want the YSL glossy stain, but it’s crazy expensive

  374. Vivian Kwok says:

    I am sitting in my office, on a beautiful Sunday, working…It’s Thanksgiving Long Weekend in Vancouver, BC and we have this crazy warm weather today..To pass time,I googled beauty blog and stumbled across this!! Entertaining, fun and with neat info! Thanks so much for making my day less painful!!

  375. bonnie says:

    It’s Canadian Thanksgiving, so happy thanksgiving Karen (:
    I love sitting home on a sunday & catching up on everything your blog!

  376. Sylvia says:

    I’m enjoying my Sunday evening by cuddling with the dogs on the couch.

  377. Sara says:

    My favorite magazines are Allure, Lucky and InStyle.

  378. Jessica says:

    I like cats.

  379. christine says:

    I love pumpkin spice lattes. Ready for fall weather though. I think that I got a little burnt at the pumpkin patch today.

  380. Tanya says:

    I am a pc, but I do have an iPhone and a iPad. Mac’s cost too much and all I do is surf the web anyway. I’ve never tried skype, I’m afraid of getting dropped calls – dropped calls really annoy me!

  381. Roxann says:

    I’ve tried Skype, it was okay at first. Then for some reason it started acting up. Pop-ups started showing up so I had to uninstall. Maybe I will install it again. Or not.

  382. Lyndsay says:

    I only use white eyeshadow when I am going for a mod look. And I am totally Mac girl ๐Ÿ™‚

  383. Emily says:

    Finally getting some cool fall weather here. Love it!

  384. Barbara says:

    Just saw Pitch Perfect and LOVED it. So funny, sweet, poignant and filled with crazy-talented people. Love Allure and InStyle magazines and love Sephora. Thanks for your contests, Karen!!

  385. Bernice says:

    We’re still having gorgeous weather in Vancouver! It’s such a shocker because it usually rains all day, every day in October.

  386. I am totally a Mac girl all the way. I have been for 8 years now. I hate that I can’t use a Mac at work.

  387. Anne Wadzinski says:

    I have a wedding to be in next month and I need to find a good makeup look that I can do myself! You’re blog is always a great place to start.

  388. Hohe says:

    I’m a PC girl, but have a few Mac products.

  389. Anonne says:

    Love the redesign of this blog and love that shot of the NARS colors! I heart NARS.

  390. Rebecca says:

    I’m so excited for Halloween!

  391. Katelynn says:

    Once you go Mac you never go back! ๐Ÿ™‚

  392. Kiara says:

    I’m dying to try that Sephora false eyelash applicator…I need to wear falsies for dance performances but am absolutely awful at applying them myself. I’m thinking this could be my salvation??

  393. Laura says:

    I have been using a Mac since I was 4 yrs old and now I’m 31. Always Mac over PC ๐Ÿ™‚

  394. I have a PC but I’d LOVE a Mac someday!

  403. BB says:

    NY Magazine is my favorite.

  404. Janira says:

    Hey Karen, I was wondering if you’ve tried any of O.C.C.’s lip tars? Now that Sephora carries them, I’m more curious to try them than ever before.

  405. Savannah says:

    I visited my boyfriend today!

  406. Kellie says:

    I have always been a PC girl….but I have been wanting to try a MAC lately! They just LOOK so pretty.

  407. Renee says:

  411. Janelle says:

    I am a PC.

  412. Brooke says:

    This weekend was a busy one. We washed and groomed all four kitties and took our 18 lb. orange tabby, Butters (who is a HUGE fan of Tabs btw), to the vet for his monthly steroid shot (he’s got allergies).

  413. MelodyJ says:

    I am a PC. It’s still one of the best gaming experience you can have.
    Best movies so far this year are The Hunger Games, The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises.

  414. chibicheeks says:

    PC! Mac’s are good computers, but they cost so much. Plus, too much proprietor crap with it. PC’s are more customizable

  415. Jennie Taylor says:

    I did a metallic blue cat eye today and fell in LOVE with it

  416. Nadia A. says:

    Hi! My favorite magazine is InStyle Magazine. I have been an InStyle Magazine subscriber for about seven years.

  417. Morgan says:

    Made my first crockpot meal tonight! Mushroom beef stew, amaaaazing! I’m definitely a slow cooker convert now ๐Ÿ™‚

  418. Cathy says:

    I am lusting over the white ceramic Chanel watch. I DIE.

  419. Natalie says:

    Fall is here! What better way to celebrate than with a trip to Sephora?

  420. Anna says:

    I wanna win!

  421. Rozae says:

    I can’t pick one, like mac for one thing and pc for others!

  422. Mary says:

    I would totally wear white eyeshadow!

  423. Ana Costa says:

    I’m seeing this guy at the moment, and decided to take him to my pub where they do amazing gastro pub food – we both order monkfish scampi – which is super yummy, succulent and leaves u asking for more, but the day I decide to bring a guy and impress him with good food the chef decided to over cook the scampis, they came out slightly darker than usual, but very dry ๐Ÿ™

  424. Jessica says:

    I have my fingers crossed for this one!!

  425. jenelle says:

    Dear Diary,
    It sucks when you go threw a break up and u don’t want to use make up. Life is hard but someone elses is hardier. And you can’t cover lifes scars with concealer. What keeps us sane is the drive of wanting greatness and to be famous….

  426. Carmen says:

    Love my Mac what else would I use

  427. Esther says:

    I love skype! one of my best friends lives in canada (I’m in georgia), so we skype a lot. last night, we talked for four hours haha

  428. Anne says:

    I want new shoes and more makeup!

  429. Sara P. says:

    I am a mac ๐Ÿ™‚

  430. Sherice says:

    Best movie I’ve seen this year was End of Watch…it still haunts me. So well written, acted and heart wrenching. It has stayed with me!

  431. Rosie says:

    I’ve tried white eyeshadow before, but I haven’t quite figured it out yet.

  432. MF says:

    I should be working on a paper right now, but I’m having much more fun on your site ๐Ÿ˜‰

  433. Patty says:

    My roommate knew that my boyfriend and I had a tough time this weekend, resulting in taking some time apart, and he gave me the most satisfying hug. Made me realize the healing power of human touch.

  434. Julie says:

    finally bought Burberry Brit today; I’ve been eyeing it for months!

  435. Lorraine ER says:

    I’ve never used Skype because I’m usually scrubbing around in my pj’s in front of the computer and don’t want to get all prettied up to talk to someone over the computer, lol. If I had family or a significant other far away I would probably get over that and love Skype.

  436. Hazel says:

    Happy anniversary to us! ๐Ÿ™‚

  437. Wendy says:

    I could never use a mac. I think because I learned on DOS, before Windows, I need both mouse buttons and all the keyboard shortcuts. Trying on Mac takes me way too long and is frustrating!

  438. Amaris says:

    I would never wear white eyeliner! ๐Ÿ™

  439. Vanessa F says:

    I love my macbook pro! Best computer I’ve ever had.

  442. Crystal says:

    I’m an Apple junkie !

  443. LAURA says:

    Ive been dreaming about that new Urban Decay palette ever since you posted the swatches

  444. Bonnie says:

    My current home computer is a Mac, as is my work computer, but prior to this year, I’ve always owned and used PCs. I don’t lean heavily toward one or the other, though.

  445. Menia says:

    I use Skype all the time to talk to my parents who live in another city far away!

  446. blkrox says:

    NOT a good day for Bay Area baseball ๐Ÿ™

  447. Michaela says:

    I would love to try any MAC product, unfortunately I haven’t had the chance so far but I’m still hoping because there will be my birthday and Christmas quite soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

  448. Rosa says:

    Honey Boo Boo would definitely wear white eyeshadow!

  449. Mandy says:

    Just returned from Europe with lots of goodies!

  450. Claire says:

    Hope I win a gift card. : )

  452. Shauna says:

    Yays! Sephora ๐Ÿ™‚
