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

Rise and shine, morning glory. It’s going to be a beautiful (Comic Sans-free) day.


The birds are singing…

…and adventure awaits!

What are your plans for today? If I can finish my chores early (seriously, Tabs should learn how to vacuum his own fur balls), I would love to see a movie. I hear Source Code is supposed to be good, and the idea of Jakey Poo and a big bucket of popcorn sounds delish.

OOH! The coffee’s ready. I’m gonna go grab a cup. Would you care for one too? Stay a while. Why don’t you enter today’s giveaway, and I’ll be right back.

A Makeup and Beauty Blog Giveaway!

Win a $50 eGift card from Sephora

  • One (1) Sephora eGift card containing $50 sent to the winner by email (or $50 sent by PayPal instead).

  • There are two ways to enter, and you can do both of them for two chances to win. First, you can enter by leaving a comment at the bottom of this post, a comment about anything at all, like, what’s your current favorite mascara? If you could go out on a date with any actor, which one would it be? Have you ever gone bird watching? Are you right handed or left? — you get the idea.
  • Second, you can enter by following me on twitter Twitter @karenmbb and retweeting (RT) the following message:
    • Follow @karenmbb and RT to Win a $50 eGift Card from Sephora!

  • Sephora eGift Certificates can only be redeemed online and are not valid in stores or available for purchase or redemption in Canada. The winner may opt to substitute the Sephora eGift card prize for $50 sent directly to their email address by PayPal.
  • Tabs and I (heretofore referred to as “T-Money and K-Dawg”) will select one (1) winner at random from the entries either left in the comments at the bottom of this blog post or addressed to @karenmbb on Twitter.
  • The winner will be announced here within 48 hours of the deadline.

  3. auroragyps says:

    If I could go on a date with any actor, it would be Vincent D’Onofrio. He is such an amazing actor and not too hard on the eyes either. I just finished watching an old episode of Law & Order: CI while I was putting on my makeup at my desk, something I do a lot. I can watch him over & over and never get tired.

    I need moar makeup, especially concealer.

    Don’t date or watch birds. I could use coffee, though. BRB.

  22. Alka says:

    Mmmmm coffee would be lovely! I don’t have a HG mascara…I’m always buying the latest greatest drugstore mascara. I prefer conditioning ones that give a natural look but typically I just buy the one on sale and use a coupon so I don’t end up paying more than $2-3 a tube. Especially since I tend to replace them every other month.

  23. Fran says:

    If I won, I’d probably try and pick up the Naked palette!

    desperately finding a mascara that won’t smudge on me!

  28. Julia says:

    I’m right-handed, have never gone bird watching, and have never really thought about which actor I would go on a date with. My favorite mascara is still Tarte. I was at Sephora last week and bought Dior Matte Skin Perfecter. I love it, but it’s so expensive and it seems to run out really fast (or maybe I’m just using too much). I don’t want to pay that much for a primer, but I like it better than the Sephora primer I was using before. I might end up going back to using the Sephora primer because the price is much more tolerable.

  29. Lauren says:

    It’s a beautiful day here too! I’ve been using Smashbox Bionic Mascara, but actually need to head out to get a new one!

  33. Karen! You sure seem chipper today! I’m glad you’re feeling better. Did Tabs give you lots of kitty hugs?

  34. Stef Smith says:

    I’m up early on a Saturday morning because I am helping out my best friend of 30 years, we’re 35. And I’m going to hit the Farmer’s Market! And Chipotle! Pretty much the best day ever!

  43. Yao says:

    Honestly, I was a little disappointed by UD’s Naked palette. Is it just me?

  44. Beth says:

    My current fave mascara is Loreal Voluminous which strangely, I put up Lancome Definicils to use. I like it so much better! Definicils used to be my HG that I would wear on special occasions with Voluminous every day….but now it might be the other way around! ๐Ÿ™‚

  45. Taylor says:

    It’s such a nice day here in Georgia but I’m sadly indoors working on my dissertation….If I am very productive today my boyfriend will take me to see Insidious…I <3 horror movies!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    When Tabs is sleeping does his tongue stick out? My kitty is ridiculous and when he wakes up he looks woozy and his tongue sticks out and it's so funny because it's like he doesn't even know it!! I was just wondering if any other cats besides mine do this!!

    Mmm my fav mascara??? Now that’s a hard one…mascara in general is my absolute favorite makeup item! But if I had to pick just one it’d be Too Faced Lash Injection. If volumizes your lashes to the max! This might sound odd the formula smells great too-which isnt usualy what youd expect from a mascara.

    I was thinking of seeing a movie too! A friend wants me to go see Insidious, the new horror film that just came out in theaters. Although I’m not a huge horror movie fan (mainly due to the fact that I’m a wimp), I might just go see it. But for the earlier part of the day, I want to enjoy some sun!

  170. christine says:

    Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush sounds amazing. I was trying to resist but the reviews have won me over.

  171. Nathalie says:

    I imagine that having everything in comic sans till the end of the day yesterday was like really having to pee during a long car ride with no stops. Anyway, thanks for holding these contests. Even if I hadn’t won one, I’m always hopeful when you post a new contest. It looks really gloomy today so I’m not sure what I will be doing. Maybe see Source Code as well, but I don’t like seeing Jakey with another woman so….

  172. Jen says:

    If I could go on a date with any actor it would be Paul Walker!

    Happy Saturday, it’s a beautiful day here. Hot & Sunny, yay!

    Favorite Mascara right now is Clinique lash doubling mascara. I really like the wand & it doesn’t clump.

    Can’t think of an actor, but I can think of a few athletes. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Bird watching – no. Although I went to Australia when I was young & went to a bird sanctuary that had the most spectacular birds! I have a really cute picture of my mom with a parakeet (are those the rainbow colored birds?) landing on her head. Love that picture

    Left handed

    Have a great day everyone!

  195. Alison says:

    My favorite mascara as of late is Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes. I got it in a little set I bought at Ulta, and at first I wasn’t too fond of it, but I’ve been liking it more and more the more I use it.

  200. Karen says:

    Heading to the beach in a few minutes, I can’t wait to get in the water!

  201. Kaianne says:

    My current favorite mascara is Revlon Grow Luscious. I didn’t think it would really condition my lashes, but it did! They are considerably longer and healthier now.

    As for an actor to go on a date with, it would definitely be Jon Hamm. Not only is he super dreamy, but he’s also pals with Tina Fey, who I have a super girl-crush on. But, more importantly, he’s super handsome.

    It’s also beautiful and sunny and springy today in Montreal so I went and grabbed a big ol’ coffee and I’m hoping to get some good work done on some term papers (about beaver trade, bleh).

  202. Erica K says:

    my current mascara is rimmel’s lash accelerator.

  203. Heidi says:

    Another vote for Tarte’s Lights, Cameras, Lashes!

    Oh, and in spite of the fact that he’s married with kids, I’d like a date with Hugh Jackman, please! I love Aussie men!

  204. Jane says:

    i love japanese mascaras, especially majolica majorca’s, and Maybelline Falsies!

  205. Joanna says:

    I’m loving MAC’s Haute & Naughty Lash for now but mascara is the one cosmetic that I’m constantly on the look out for “the one”.

  234. Maggie says:

    I’ve been really loving Japanese drugstore mascaras. I got mine at a local Asian market, and I was afraid to try them because you know Asian stores have the worst return policies (and bad customer service overall). (Btw, I feel like I can say this because I’m Asian and grew up in several Asian countries, lol.) But boy do these mascaras lift and hold your curls and last all day (kind of a pain to remove though). And they have cute packaging. My current is Sana Extra Large. It’s like Cover LashBlast (the orange one) but better and no smudging.

  235. Molly says:

    Mmm… peppermint green tea and raspberries. Now THIS is breakfast. ๐Ÿ™‚

  236. Marian says:

    If I could go out with any actor, it would be Gregory Peck, but alas…..he’s dead!

I cannot stop getting sample mascaras (the Sephora sampler kits are a MUST) For some reason I think the quality of the sampler size tubes is better than the full sized. I have liked some samples, but hated the same thing in full size. Weird, right? Plus now I can change up my mascara brand more often and I do love to experimentate!

  265. When I was younger (Without the internet and computers, only TV and books), I was into bird-watching! My house had a little forest at the back so there were no shortage of birds (As well as monitor lizards and squirrels), but sadly I forgot their Latin/species names as my only references were either a guidebook in the local names, or a guidebook on foreign birds which, well, we can’t find here.

    I also have this very old book of birds that my Dad used to own- it was a book that came free with purchases of condensed milk that time, and to complete the book the labels of the cans needs to be peeled to reveal the informations of the birds as corresponding to the ones in the book on the inside of the label, cut and pasted into the book. My Dad admitted to foraging local coffee shops for their empty cans for the labels to complete the book ๐Ÿ˜€

    Right now I’m using MAC’s Opulash mascara.. It’s good but still not my HG. The search continues!

  336. susah says:

    my current fav mascara is ysl faux cils in the violet color! so flattering on brown eyes

    if i could go on a date with any actor….i’d choose rachel mcadams. fine, so not a real date, but ladies night out kinda thing.

  337. Kate & Zena says:

    Happy April 2nd!

  338. Emily says:

    My favorite mascara is the L’Oreal Telloscopic. The one in the silvery tube with the blue letters. I LOVE IT!!

  339. Sierra says:

    Pick me!

  340. Nalini says:

    If I could go on a date with any actor it would be Taylor Lautner, which is gross, because he was born in 1992. 1992!!!! I’m 25 and a cougar.

  341. Grace says:

    Such a beautiful spring day in Tulsa!

  342. I’m loving the Tarte ready set splashes waterproof mascara right now. It says perfectly and is a pretty jet black. Perfect for gals like me who are always on the hunt for a mascara for contact lens wearers!

  345. Rosie says:

    I am loving Maybelline Falsies. I actually bought a second tube. I never buy the same mascara twice, I always like to try a different one to see if it’s better. The trick is to heat my eyelash curler with a quick blast from the blow dryer. Apply mascara and perfect curl all day long. Falsies mascara makes them long and lush too!!

  346. Tina says:

    wow sounds good yes please!x

    My fave mascaras are my Shiseido ones: Lasting Lift and Perfect Volume. They’re perfect for my short straight Asian lashes! I also occasionally use Lancome Definicils. I never felt the need to hunt for drugstore ones because my Shiseido ones are so reliable and I still haven’t run out of the sample sizes yet :3

  380. jessica davis says:

    Ok, the best Mascara is Definicils by Lancome; I’ve been a dedicated user for 10+ years. The secret to long lashes is the lash conditioner, it makes a huge difference. I believe everyone should use it! I have tried Dior Show Mascara and it definitely is a winner, but takes a little longer to apply.
    My 4 year old son and I are having a lazy Saturday watching the Giants beat the Dogers finally (well hopefully!).

    my current favorite mascara is maybelline colossal. It keeps my lashes curled while giving them length and volume. But my ALL TIME favorite has to be Tarte Lights Camera Splashes! It gives me length, volume, and drama to my skimpy lashes. When I can afford it, I always go back to that stuff it’s amazing!

    I have so much homework to do this weekend it isn’t even funny. I wanted to get it done during the week, but I was so tired from my full time job that it wasn’t going to happen, no way no how. I’ve done one of the three major things I need to do so far and I won’t stop for the day until I get one more in the bag. Remind me again why I need another degree?

    My daily mascara lately has been Bobbi Brown Extreme Party but I wouldn’t call it my favorite. That title goes to Estee Lauder Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting mascara. The name is a mouthful, but it’s the best mascara I’ve tried in a LONG time. I got one in a GWP once and keep repurchasing, which is something I rarely do. Haven’t seen anyone review it yet, which I find really odd.

    I’m glad that my marriage is over because I will never have to deal with someone who doesn’t think I’m worth anything. I’m happier now then I ever was in the two in a half years that I was with him. I don’t have to give up my dreams for him or cry because he won’t talk to me.

    I still love him, I always will but now I’m free to find the person who appreciate me for the way I am, not the way he wants me to be. It’s almost over.

    I am a silent reader of your blog, so what a lovely time to start commenting! Here are some makeup looks I’ve been liking. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m all about quick eye looks that use only a couple products!

    MAC Soba all over the lid with Bare Escentual’s True Gold Glimmer shadow lightly on the center of the lid for a glow of sorts.

    MAC Patina all over the lid with MAC Satin Taupe in the crease.

    The liiiiighest layer of MAC Paint in Sublime Nature (nude/beige with the slightest sheen) on the lid (too dark for me to bring up to the brow bone) with either MAC Soba or MAC Cork in the crease. I find this simple eye look is amazing, especially when I have a bit of a tan, and I LOVE to pair it with a pink look, specifically Tarte’s 24.7 Lip Sheer SPF in Champagne Brunch!

    **For anyone who gets frustrated over the packaging of MAC paints (seriously, the product just shoots out of the tube!!), I have a tip that prevents wasting product! You know those little sample jars you can get from any makeup store? Well, put the excess product in there with a few droplets of water to keep it from drying. It will last you about a week or so, and just clean it when you’re done to stop bacteria build-up and then start over! ๐Ÿ™‚

    That’s all from me!

    P.S. I am so over fall/winter dark mattes right now and ready for the shimmer!

  444. Meng says:

    I’ve just recently started getting into makeup and I’m 22! My parents and past mates have always been strongly opposed to vanity and mocked women with a lot of makeup. But I’m realizing it’s not about vanity or being tricked by the beauty companies, it’s about fun and confidence and that’s worth something. I spend extra time in the morning to get ready because I am happier when I can take pride in the front I present to the world. I was completely uneducated about beauty, and it seemed so overwhelming at first, but luckily I found a few honest wonderful blogs like this one who steered me through this new frontier. Thanks for being a great guide!
