A Makeup and Beauty Blog giveaway
two ways to win a $50 eCard from sephora

I can totally picture my little tabby Jedi fighting alongside Yoda against the Separatist droid forces… πŸ™‚


So how’s it going this morning? Are you coming down from the whir of the holidays? I’m still kind of in that buzzing mode. I have to run to the mall a little later today, and I’m wondering what the crowds are gonna be like. I hope they aren’t too out of control.

Oh, guess what I’ve been doing lately? About a week ago I started re-watching the entire series run of The Hills on Netflix. I’m almost finished with season three, when everything pretty much revolves around the Spencer/Heidi/LC/Audrina/Lo maelstrom of melodrama.

I get so sad watching Heidi get caught up in everything and how she’s totally manipulated by Spencer… Like El Hub always says, “That guy really needs to get his @ss kicked.”

Anywho, I hope you have a good weekend. Here’s a Sephora eGift card giveaway to move things along. πŸ™‚

What folks are saying…

“What a lovely surprise it was to see your announcement (after completing one of many exams/papers/projects I have this crazy week)! The eCard will definitely ease expenses for this broke, beauty-obsessed college student. Thank you, Karen and Tabs!!”

“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.”

“Thank you SO much Karen! OMG! Wishes really do come true! I can’t believe I won! You have no idea how much this will help me through the holidays. I’ve been an avid fan of your blog for the past two years. Your witty and creative entries, informative makeup information, and beautiful photos have kept me hooked. I look forward to more of it. Goodness, you’ve
seriously just made my week and it’s only Tuesday night!”

“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)

“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.”

    I’m hanging out with the hubs and our two Labradors on this chilly Saturday morning. We are going to have a Deadwood marathon today!

  8. I used to be a Pet Groomer at a Pet Store, but then My Left hand by my Ring Finger got an infection and I had to get it operated so I was forbidden to groom ever again at the pet store, But I am allowed to groom my pets. I have 2 Dogs and I normally take turns when I groom them, so I have nothing to worry about for the rest of my life with my pets and I am saving a lot of money.

  9. Kelsie says:

    Karen- I absolutely love how you always do so many giveaways! It’s such a wonderful way to connect to your stalkers- err… followers. πŸ™‚ Tabs makes quite the handsome jedi, too.

  10. Jaa Maurer says:

    I always curl my lashes =D

    loving the becca radiant skin foundation!

  12. Rikki says:

    Turns out North Carolina (that isn’t the mountains) will be getting snow late next week!

  13. Dear Karen,

    I would please like to win this for once! For the following reasons:

    1. I’d like to cheer my Mum up a bit following her knee replacement surgery. She’s not bought or worn any makeup since I was born because she gave that up to save more money to raise me and my brother. Now that we’re all grown up she balks at the price of makeup and I’d love to re-introduce makeup to her. She’s always been great at applying makeup when she was younger and she does a good job doing makeup for me too that it’s a shame to let her skills go to waste! Oh and how are the surgery and not wearing makeup since 20++ years ago related? Because she’s not feeling too comfortable (It’s normal, but still) so getting her some sparkly new makeup might cheer her up!
    2. In the past year I’ve met and befriended 2 lovely local beauty bloggers who I love with all my heart, and even though it’s late I’d like to get them a late Christmas present from something only available on Sephora US, e.g. Tarte (We’re in Malaysia). At least it’d be something unique for them!
    3. I’m getting married next year, so some new skincare/makeup to help achieve that radiant bridal glow everyone’s talking about would be great!

    The $50 may not be much to fulfill all the above but it will definitely help lighten the burden! πŸ˜€ Thank you so much xxxx

  14. Tiffany says:

    I hope that I win this time. Will make a great birthday surprise for me!

  15. colleen boudreau says:

    I curl my lashes with two different curlers.. they’re so straight.

  16. Katrina says:

    I gave my mother-in-law a Clarisonic, my sister-in-law some CK One perfume and a gift card to Sephora, and I gifted myself with a Tarte LipSurgence set that I absolutely love!

  17. hazakaza says:

    I don’t curl my lashes AND they’re not naturally curly, either–I think I should, but I just can’t be bothered to buy lash curler after lash curler in an effort to find one that doesn’t pinch. I do everything else makeup-wise, but for some reason, I just haven’t broken down & re-tried lash curling since I grew to hate it so much in high school!

  18. brooke says:

    I’m usually too lazy to curl my lashes. I even bought an expensive Shu curler and don’t really even use it…sigh.

  19. Rosalyn francisco says:

    Happy Saturday !

  20. Elizabeth says:

    Are Heidi and Spencer still married? Remember her horrible single she released, which included him rapping?

  21. Tricia says:

    Curlers scare me

  22. Sunny says:

    Naturally curly? I wish πŸ˜‰ I need a lot of help from my eyelash curler!

  23. Melissa says:

    I don’t curl my lashes, but I should.

  24. Kirsten H. says:

    I… I love oatmeal. I like it with fruit, and with yogurt. Like, some raspberries and vanilla yogurt. Yum.

  25. Amanda says:

    My kitty is curled up next to me as I type this. In fact, she is watching me type this. I think she wants something from Sephora for herself, maybe? She’s been taking tips from Tabs.

  26. Sara v says:

    I just recently re-watched The Hills too! It still amazes me how Heidi let Spencer control her… And ElHubs is right lol πŸ™‚

  27. aclearcutsign says:

    I have not been exercising over the holidays…I should though

  28. Layla says:

    I’m a new follower and reader of your blog and I just want to say that I really love it! πŸ™‚

  29. Becky says:

    Aloha. Have a great day.

  30. Amanda Sakovitz says:

    I have been slacking on exercising. I’m trying to get back to doing the treadmill daily.

  31. Bunny says:

    I think my eyelashes are curly enough and frankly trying to put that curler near my eyes feels weird LOL

  32. Bells says:

    My lashes are naturally very straight but I still don’t curl them because I haven’t found a curler that I like yet…

  33. Jamie C. says:

    I Love Me Some Oatmeal especially now in the cooler months. I love when it’s cold outside and I have a nice bowl of oatmeal with some fruit in the morning. I love that my Aveeno body cream has Oatmeal as well because it hydrates my dry itchy skin especially now during the Winter.

  34. Tiffanie says:

    I love Star Wars almost as much as I love makeup. Almost.

  35. Jeanette says:

    I workout year round, but for some reason during the holidays I feel more fit. I probably work out more in the winter since I’m not going out as much. Now I’m going to have to track it and see.

  36. Lucia says:

    My fave Star Wars movie is def Episode 2!!

  37. Brittany k says:

    I had oatmeal for lunch with some peanut butter in it. Oh yeah!

  38. Jonnelle says:

    I have definitely not been working out over the holidays but need to start for this cruise coming up!

  39. Hannah S. says:

    So many resolutions, so little time

  40. Agata says:

    Curly eyelashes? I wish!

  41. Amy says:

    I used to love curling my lashes but recently I’ve been skipping that step and there isn’t much of a difference.

  42. Jennifer Ryder says:

    I only eat oatmeal when it’s in cookies. Oatmeal chocolate chip ones are the best.

  43. Becky W. says:

    I think my cat Pico would be friends with Tabs πŸ™‚

  44. Emilee says:

    No beauty related Christmas gifts for me this year… other than the ones from me to me πŸ™‚

  45. Krista says:

    I actually much prefer Star Trek to Star Wars. Mainly due to Spock and Kirk. What can I say smart is the new sexy. πŸ˜€ Love your blog.

  46. breyerchic04 says:

    Feeling the need for some new foundation to make me feel more put together right now.

  47. Brittany says:

    I have been trying to workout but its so hard getting into the routine….

  48. Justine says:

    I have never used an eyelash curler before. I think my lashes curl ok with some mascara.

  49. KJ says:

    I’ve never seen star wars (or dirty dancing for that matter )…or Forrest gump!

  50. courtney says:

    My day is going smoother than usual. I had a banana and and hand full of almonds for breakfast. Now I’m snaking on carrots and an apple. I know… sounds boring but I’m vegan and I love it. Gives me soooo much energy. I’m actually planning on going to sephora today and buy something new to treat my self with some Xmas money from my mom. I try and make a biweekly trip to look and try out new products. Since I’m a student I have to budget BIG TIME!! I LOVE SEPHORa. Winning this gift card would bring so much joy to me. Makeup is my life!!

  51. Charisma says:

    I haven’t been exercising since I became pregnant! I was so nauseous! Now, I am starting to kickbox again πŸ™‚

  52. Kelsey-Belle says:

    I’m curious to see what disney does with the Star Wars franchise. Could be really good. (especially if they do something based on the Boba Fett novels)

  53. courtney says:

    Star wars is the most epic masterpiece I have ever experienced!!!!!

  54. Alison says:

    I haven’t been working out over the holidays because I’ve been traveling. Gotta get back to the gym in the new year!

  55. Heather says:

    I’m pretty sure I’ve been exercising more over break than at school, where it’s harder to make time for it. We’ll see if I can keep this up when I get back!

  56. anne says:

    I used to curl my lashes and put mascara every day .. now i’m in a break

  57. onegreatsmile says:

    My lashes are stick straight. Give my my curler or give me death!!!!!

  58. Chelsey says:

    I curl my lashes but they don’t stay curled for long… they’re fiesty!

  59. Ava says:

    I received a sample of the Urban Decay Naked Foundation and tried it twice last week. I’ve broken out terribly from it. Not sure if it’s the foundation or if my skin just can’t handle foundation but I can’t remember the last time I broke out this badly from a cosmetic product.

  60. Jenny says:

    The crazed internet fandom of the Star Wars movies really turns me off. Yeah, I liked them as a kid too, but jesus, people really take it to the extreme. Today I think I’ll put on Rocker lipstick (that I got for Christmas!) and run around town doing nothing in particular.
    That sounds fun.

  61. MJ says:

    I gave plenty of beauty gifts this year~ XD

  62. Chelsea says:

    I love oatmeal, but I can’t eat it because of gluten!

    I need to take Quincy Bunnington to get a mani pedi.

  63. I don’t curl my lashes…never have. Can’t say what I’d do if I tried. I use Diorshow maximizer and Lancôme hypnôse pretty religiously though and they work beautifully for me. To the point at I almost never look at other options in this area.

    I have been stalking lately building a wish list for what might be a January splurge. This prize would be delightful! Thanks Karen & Tabs!

  64. Jen B says:

    I love oatmeal! It’s my go to quick breakfast.

  65. Elly says:

    I got a couple of nail polish sets for my mother and best friend…and one for myself as well, since they were a good deal!

  66. christine says:

    I love watching reality tv too!

  67. angela says:

    I actually just came back from exercising. πŸ™‚

  68. Ebru says:

    I am sitting at home checking your blog sipping coffee watching snow flakes πŸ™‚

  69. Roxanne says:

    We groom the kitties at home. Last spring we gave one of our girls a lion cut because it was getting warmer. I was worried she was going to be scared of the clippers but she purred the entire time. I guess the vibrations from the clippers felt like a full body massage!

  70. Mariana says:

    First day at the beach…already got sunburned despite all the SPF!

  71. stacy says:

    Got a Mia 2 for Christmas and love it. Am hoping my skin starts to look smoother. Have my eye on the Naked Palettes matte. A girl can never have too many brown eye shadows!

  72. Nicole says:

    I’m lucky Sephora doesn’t have a credit card… I’d probably be so far in debt lol!

  73. Icequeen81 says:

    My favorite sar wars movie with jar jar binks. Phantom menace, , mostly because of the funny quotes of jar jar. The whole movies is epic but love to see his clumsy stuff over and over again.

  74. Lynn says:

    No i didnt give any beauty items this year, it’s difficult b/c you don’t want to get the wrong color or style and the person might already have it.
    i did get a beauty stocking stuff gift this year, my friend subscribes to birchbox and she collects smaples and for Christmas she gave her friends a box of samples… I got a Estee Lauder shadow palette too.

  75. mrsshukra says:

    Gave lots of Sephora gift cards for Christmas!

  76. Shay says:

    Oatmeal is healthy, but I don’t like it.

  77. Gina G says:

    I didn’t get any xmas gifts this year. I guess santa saw me when I mooned that cop a few months ago..

  78. Sunita Magar says:

    Me please.. I would to get something new in my mailbox! πŸ™‚

  79. Mel Layesen says:

    Funny you bring up chairs. I just got a new desk chair from Ikea the other day. It’s just like an executive chair, and I feel like the most comfortable boss in it! $60 very well spent.

  80. Anastasia says:

    We just adopted a cat :). her name is Lola

  81. Aurora says:

    I curl my lashes occasionally, for a nice occasion or when I feel like taking the effort…and I love oatmeal πŸ™‚

  82. Mandy Sark says:

    I love traveling, but I hate packing!

  83. Maria says:

    Oatmeal is delightful. I eat it for dinner when I’m feeling lazy.

  84. Pam says:

    A neighbor has a Yoda Santa in the front yard!

  85. Kristin says:

  94. I am in love with my new Keurig.

  95. Rene Groyer says:

    I curl my eyelashes every morning and blast the eye lash curler with my hairdryer to make them stay curled.
    It makes the world of difference to the way I look and feel !
    Have tweeted the competition.

  96. Solfrid says:

    I love mi boyfriend πŸ˜€

  97. gabby says:

    I always love giving beauty gifts for xmas. I gave my sisters the Sephora give me some lip set. I was able to snag two and would have liked one for myself but since my sisters are lip gloss junkies, I knew they would love it!

  98. Lauren says:

    I’ve had such a relaxing week of no work, but then started looking at everything that I have to do over break. All that I can say is – blargh! I want to be on break all of the time.

  99. Sandra Maria Barbosa says:

    I have a dog and she is very ill, almost at the very end, who knows maybe if I win the lottery I do not feel so sad. Happy Holidays!

  100. Judy says:

  101. Megan says:

    My fave Star Wars is Empire Strikes Back.

  103. Calli says:

    I have a huge stash of chocolate now from christmas; better than halloween, lol!

  104. Jennifer L says:

    I gave my mom a “gift basket” type thing of all of her favorite beauty products, including the ones she always steals from me πŸ˜‰

  105. I have the GREATEST Best Friend Ever because We went Christmas shopping a couple weeks ago for one of our closest friends and as we were shopping I fell in love with a purse I saw, but was eager to purchase. When we exchanged gifts this year it was a total surprise to see she bought me the purse I had my eye on. I was excited and shocked at the same time becasue it was the last one they had in the store and I didn’t think I would see it again. I Truly LOVE Her Gift The most this year.

  106. Megan says:

    I really want a Naked palette…

  107. Heather says:

    The lashes on my right eye aren’t as curled as on the left eye. Annoying, but I suppose it’s just a quirk that makes me, me.

  108. Xero says:

    I hate having to do work for classes but I can’t wait for this vacation to end.

  109. Ana Olson says:

    We (me and my hubs) have been pretty good at working out during the holidays – a first for me! Our cats are as lazy as always. πŸ˜€

  110. Zach Barehmi says:

    My eyelashes are naturally long and curly, but I always curl them so they don’t look like I went all 90’s and took a crimping iron to them. I like th nice even curl I get from my shu uemura πŸ˜‰

  111. Christine says:

    My lashes are stick-straight, but my revlon and shu curlers take care of it all. Though the shu is a great curler, you should be aware that the curler doesn’t open very big, the “mouth” you put your lashes into is quite small. The revlon has both more horizontal and vertical space

  112. Caroline says:

    I’m not ready to head back to work this week!

  113. Evon says:

    I hope you had a good Chrismas! I know my cats did. 😊

  114. Jennifer says:

    Naturally curly lashes although I curl them for effect on special occasions.

  115. I need a new head for my clarisonic!

  116. nabel says:

    watching sex and the city πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  117. Sara says:

    I once took a long afternoon nap during a Hills marathon. Every time I woke up Heidi looked completely different!

  118. Evelyn says:

    I just got a cat today she is a tabby =) her name is Ginger , Ginger the Cat! I am so excited!!!!!!!!

  119. Ruchita says:

    Greetings from London!

  120. Julie says:

    Doesn’t everyone exercise in hopes of looking like Princess Leia in her “Return of the Jedi” outfit? Right now I fear I’d look more like the Lego version.

  121. melissa says:

    once upon a time i had naturally curled lashes but once i decided to wear mascara for some strange reason that i’ve yet to find out they are straight down hard to curl lashes now πŸ™

  122. Stefanie Gladden ( Ann Lyfe ) says:

    I do curl my lashes, I can always tell a difference if I do or don’t

  123. Heidi says:

    I’m a big oatmeal fan!

  124. TrippyPixie says:

    I don’t have to curl my eyelashes, thank goodness! They’re naturally curly. Good thing, too, since eyelash curlers look like some type of torture device. I’d never go near one, even if I did need it! (They constantly make me think of “A Clockwork Orange”, which, let’s face it, is disgusting.)

  125. Amanda Hess says:

    I tried Urban Decay’s curling mascara today for the first time and let me just say I should not have curled my lashes beforehand because wowza my eyes look open and perky today! There is so much curl it makes it look like I had 3 cups of coffee.

  126. Natalia says:

    I love to curl my eyelashes every time I go out, even when I don’t put mascara on. I’m loving the new Chanel mascara πŸ˜‰

  127. Saddy says:

    Have never seen the Star Wars movies. One of these days I’ll get to it, I swear!

  128. Chris El says:

    I’m looking for a non-clogging foundation primer. Any suggestions? Could use the Sephora gift card for one.

  129. Sara says:

    I gifted myself Prada Ifusion D’Iris Parfum. mmm nice

  130. Jenna N. says:

    I don’t have any pets πŸ™ live-in boyfriend is allergic to cats and we live in an apartment so a dog wouldn’t really work

  131. Sondra says:

    I love oatmeal!! But only steel cut. Load me up on brown sugar, apples & raisins.

  132. shedontusejelly says:

    I have naturally curly lashes, which is great because I’m a little intimidated by lash curlers LOL

  133. Julie says:

    Love my oatmeal with brown sugar, cinnamon, and apples!

  134. Arena Thompson says:

    I gave my hubby his dream gift this Christmas! I made him cry! Best Christmas EVER!

  135. meena says:

    love shu uemura curler…use only that to curl my lashes!

  136. Naomi T says:

    My eyelashes are naturally curly.

  137. jess says:

    I always curl my lashes! it opens them up and makes them look longer! I like the shu umera one and have recently tried out the tarte one, not a big fan since it doesn’t have the connecter thing in the middle so it feels unsafe! lol. hope you know what i’m talking about.

  138. Kristen says:

    No matter what I do, my lashes will not curl. They’re actually very long, but they simply will not curl. Much like my regular hair. I have some weird straight hair gene, maybe?

  139. sweeks1980 says:

    I love oatmeal (especially with dried fruit and nuts).

  140. Missy M says:

    I must use an eyelash curler before applying mascara or there’s no point in using it

  141. Ronnie says:

Makeup&Beauty blog is definitely my go to source for thorough information. Best wishes for you and the juicy kitty today & henceforth!!!!
    Thx for the fantastic resource!!!! πŸ™‚

  142. Bekah says:

    I need this so bad! Side note… I want to build a 15 palette MAC eyeshadow. What staples do you recommend? I usually go for a natural, neutral look, and I am an NC43-ish. Thanks to everyone who replies!!

  143. Jenny D says:

    Jedi Tabs is my new favourite (beating out Hulk Tabs.)

  144. KPrice says:

    I love Star Wars. I found awesome Christmas card that have a storm trooper on the front with a saying of “Open the blast doors – it’s Christmas!”.

  145. Yamilet says:

    This is my first post πŸ™‚ I’m a stay home mom and I love your blog

  146. Laurel says:

    Wow I’ve been entering these things for a loooong time, can you believe it’s my birthday tomorrow?! Coincidentally, my mom bought me the Shu Uemura (sp?) eyelash curler! It works soooooo much better than the cheap one I was using before πŸ™‚

  148. Deanne says:

    I’ve only given my cat one bath in her life and she hated it, despite loving water in general! It led to many scratch marks and a sad, wet kitty. But her fur was sooooo soft afterwards–totally worth it!

    I’ve watched The Hills recently, myself, and it is really sad that Heidi got caught up in all of the drama with Spencer. She seemed like she really missed her friends and wanted to be a part of that group again. However, in interviews, Lauren Conrad has said that Heidi had said bad things about her offscreen….so you wonder what the real story is. Anyways, hope you are having a great weekend!

    I am enjoying a weekend away from work. My boyfriend and I were both stuck working all day on Christmas Eve and Christmas, so we did not get to go home to be with our families. We haven’t even opened presents or stuffed our stockings yet. It is a really strange feeling being away from home on Christmas. I am just thankful that I was still able to celebrate the real meaning of the day; however, I still missed my family terribly. I hope that everyone else had a wonderful holiday!!

    Hi Karen and Tabs! My most favourite makeup remover has got to be by the Korean brand Innisfree. It is called ‘Innisfree Olive Real cleansing tissue’ and it is AMAZING. it’s oil based, removes every last drop, and they are packed like box-tissue, as well as easily ripped, meaning that I can rip a small bit off instead of wasting a whole sheet. the tissues are soft but strong, and the packaging is a simple/sturdy plastic top. It costs 5000 korean Won, which is like $5! I love it, and I just wanted to share with everyone. πŸ™‚

    I get my pet aka my son groomed once a month. My Bichon Frise is my everything. I know it’s cliche but he understands & feels my love for him. He was the best Christmas gift I got this year because 2 nights before Christmas he got real sick. He was in pain, crying, fever & shivering before I rushed him to a nearby ER. He’s 11yrs old so after seen by the vet, she told me his labs are good but he has a bad spine, enlarged spleen & chronic pain due to arthritis & old age. He was given pain meds & other medications. He slept like a baby that morning & I nursed him back to his normal self. I spent close to $1000 I didn’t have but I couldn’t bare to watch and see my baby in that much pain. So this Christmas I didn’t get anything for myself or anyone. He was my gift & his love for me is the best Christmas gift. Cheers to good health for all of us! Xx Erin Anne

    I got my cat groomed once. We had just found him and he was super dirty and he basically meowed and cried the entire time. I don’t think anyone enjoyed it!

  412. Amanda J says:

    I’m definitely going to need to hit the gym once the holidays are over. I think I may have endulged in a little too much. Hehe πŸ™‚

  413. Tiffany says:

    Thanks so much for this chance! You have no idea how often I walk in and out of Sephora empty handed because I just don’t have the funds for this addiction haha. And my lashes are tiny stiff things, they just point straight down. It’s kind of sad, really.

  414. Emily says:

    I love giving beauty gifts that people wouldn’t buy for themselves.

    My favorite chair is a wooden stool I received when I was little that is marked and dinged up – but I love it.
    And random: pajama pants make me happy.
    Thank you for doing this giveaway!

  421. Leona says:

    My fav star wars character is princess leia btw.. lol.. my name’s leya and its pronounced the same way.. so growing up, whenever people called me “leah” i’d say, nope.. its leya as in princess leia from star wars.. πŸ˜€

  437. Iris says:

    My fav beauty gift this year is MAC’s crushed pigment set from my BF’s sister. It’s so sparkly and attention-grabbing. The texture’s a little hard to work with, but it’s worth it.

    Wish you a happy new year! To Karen and all the other readers!

    I like Star Wars, all except the 1st episode (Darth Vader child)

    In the closely coming 2013, I hope those ebay-like online seller would be banned from buying too much to leave some Tom Ford stocks for us locals, and look foward to MAC relaunching those paint pots of limited colors.

  441. Janelle says:

    I have never seen the original Star Wars movies.
