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

Rise and shine? Confused today am I. Talking like Yoda I am. Kind of out of it this morning I feel.


LOL! I made myself laugh… πŸ™‚

What a busy week! Today I just want to chill out, unwind, relax, watch some brainless television, catch up on my magazines, and maybe go see that new Guillermo del Toro movie, Mama.

I love del Toro’s style. He’s one of my favorite storytellers, and dang! — that guy knows how to make some scary-@ss monsters (have you seen the trailer for this?).

Pan’s Labyrinth? A classic!

In other news, well, I have no other news. Tabs is off sleeping somewhere… I don’t see him here in the living room, so I guess he’s somewhere upstairs, probably at the spa, also known as the bathroom sink. I’m just chillin’ on the couch with my laptop.

Good luck in this weekend’s Sephora eCard giveaway. Details to enter are down below.

Talk to you soon.

What folks are saying…

“Hi Karen!!! Wow, that news definitely gets a hoo ray ray and an elephant!!! (I’ve maybe been watching too much Boardwalk Empire.) Thank you so much!!!”

“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!”

I decided to give Covergirl’s new outlast stay fabulous 3 in 1 liquid foundation a try, and I actually liked it! It works for me when I want a full coverage matte foundation that lasts all day and doesn’t make me breakout.

    I had always thought my real name was Nikki.

    But when I was in 4th grade, my mom was going through some important documents and being the nosy kid I was, I decided to snoop around.

    I saw a birth certificate for a Dominique Bansil who was born the same day as me! I became excited and thought I had a long lost twin!

    My mom laughed and told me that Dominique is my real name, and that Nikki is just a nickname.

    I would have rather had a twin.

    I tried out the new Revlon Photoready eyeshadow palette…. meh.

    Last drugstore purchase was Maybelline baby lips. They are perfect for this cold weather.

  153. Andy says:

    Love Tab in the Tux!

  154. Lisa says:

    Memorable beauty moment would be getting in a fight with my eyeliner and ending up looking like Pat Benatar one day. And then my daughter asking if I was auditioning for a Real Housewives show.

  155. Jane says:

    That picture of Tabs in his little tuxedo, holding the Sephora gift card made me smile. It made Amber purr.

  156. lelacarolina says:

    hi karen! thanks for the giveaway. my most recent drugstore purchase was a few hours ago. i bought some eyeliners and emerald green nail polish (all wet and wild, the last time i used that brand i was 12!). i’m trying to get on the color of the year trend this year ahead of time, before everything becomes over-saturated with green!

  157. Amie says:

    I probably wear the most makeup in my family.

  158. Sabrina says:

    Hmm the last thing i bought from the drugstore was 2 nail polishes from maybelline! One was called green with envy the other was born with it. Hope they look as nice on my nauls πŸ™‚

  159. Bhevarri says:

    oh i love del toro!!

  160. Stacy Z says:

  163. Wynell says:

    I like Steven Spielberg as a director

  164. Alison says:

    The last drugstore product I bought was one of the new flavored Nivea lip balms (in a tin). I’ve only been using it for a couple days, but so far I really like it!

  165. Jessie says:

    I just tried out a Revlon Super lustrous lipstick and it was really nice! I like that they’re not scented.

  166. Julia says:

    I bought Lash Blast lengthening mascara. It never smudges. Tabs looks so handsome in the tux.

  167. Hannah S says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! I just dyed my hair for the first time ever πŸ˜€ and I need to hit up the drugstore or sephora asap for a new lipstick to match my dark hair!

  168. VictoriaJane says:

    Just picked up a Revlon colorburst lipgloss yesterday at the DS-could be a Nars Orgasm dupe-it’s called Peony and is a really pretty light coral/rose with tiny smooth gold shimmer. Happy with this purchase!

  169. Julia Alkaseltzer says:

    -Christopher Nolan is my favorite director. I love the overhyped movies like Inception and The Dark Knight, and even the not so overhyped like Memento and The Prestige.. Aaah!!
    -I was actually quite tame this week, what with using my shimmer palette for brown eyes from Physician’s Formula, and this rosy blush by Loreal. Nothing daring. πŸ™‚
    -Last drugstore beauty purchase! Probably Maybelline’s Baby Lips in Yummy Plummy and Melon Mania! Was more excited about YP, and ended up being more satisfied with MM. I love the melon smell from MM. x)
    -I just got out of work and I want to go shopping! But I can’t this week since rent and bills are due x(
    -I’ve become the makeup guru in this fam.
    -Batman. Forever. \o/

  170. Ashley D. says:

    I’m probably the one who wears the most makeup in the family, at least on a daily basis. I think for special occasions, they tend to wear more than me.

  171. Kaitlyn says:

    The last drugstore product i bought was essie nail polish in fiji

  172. Madelynn says:

    I’m a big Ren Faire nerd. :]

  173. Tania Sudduth says:

    Love saying Guillermo del Toro’s name! Fav director is Stanley Kubrick. Not only do I love all of his movies esp A Clockwork Orange but in a shot he would film the floor and ceiling.

  174. PS says:

    Happy Saturday. Thank you for the give-a-way!

  175. Sneha N says:

    I am obsessed with your blog. You’re awesome, you know that. But this blog is super special to me because I am the exact same shade in foundations and yellow undertones, and all your opinions and looks give me a head start at buying and using great products. I would never have tried a purple eye (always thought they looked like black eyes on me) until I saw your MAC Veronica look.

  176. Taylor says:

    I last bought Physicians Formula Sexy Booster blush in Natural from the drugstore. I like it, but it looks a little frosty on my skin. It smells amazing though. Thanks for the giveaway Karen!

  177. Colleen Boudreau says:

    I just bought the Ikea Helmer to store my make up in.. i love it!

  178. Patty says:

    Watching Audrey Hepburn in “Funny Face”…love these old classics!

    Bridget Jones’ Diary is one of my favorite movies. πŸ™‚

  185. Melissa says:

    I can’t wait to try the new urban decay Glinda palette.

  186. Thomas Murphy says:

    Ive never dressed up for a convention in a costume. Just for halloween when I was little

  187. Joanne says:

    It doesn’t have very good reviews on MUA, but I really like Stila’s Stay All Day waterproof mascara. It’s the best at holding a curl!

  188. Kelsey-Belle says:

    I’ve been buying aveeno shampoo/conditioner. I’ve really been digging it – my hair feels so soft!

  189. Camille says:

    I just bought Revlon’s lip balm/stain in Lovesick, and I can’t get enough of it.

  190. Janet says:

    Hi Karen! Another great day in my half marathon training. I ran through the mud and rain 75 minutes straight/7 miles. I never thought I would be a runner but here I am trying to prove myself wrong. I am inspired and in awe of myself. Sounds conceited but if I’m not going to love myself, my body and my spirit who else will. I hope this inspires others. <3

  191. Margie says:

    Last drugstore product I bought was maybe line the falsies mascara. Didn’t hate it, but didn’t love it either. And I am the makeup junkie in my family!

  192. Dawn Davis says:

    I’m looking for the perfect neutral pink lipstick that is easy to wear and is a drugstore price. Any ideas?

  193. buckycatt says:

    Tabs & Karen – I’m super excited after watching the first two episodes of The Carrie Diaries on The fashion, the curly hair, the drama, the 80s! Plus it is brought to us by 2 of my industry favs producer Stephanie Savage & music director Alexandra Patsavas! They were behind the show The OC & Gossip Girl – squeeeeeeee! No cat sightings yet, but you should still check it out.

  194. angela says:

    My last drugstore purchase was an Essie nail polish in Turquoise & Caicos- I love it!

  195. bin du says:

    my most daring makeup look this week is actually what i’m going to wear tonight! A friend is having a heaven and hell themed birthday party so i’m wearing a glittery gunmetal smokey eye, barbie pink cheeks and a neutral pinkish brown lip!

  196. Sarah says:

    I just got back from a run to Sephora and MAC and definitely made too big of a dent in my bank. Bought thirteen new brushes, the new NARS powder and Mac’s Up the Amp. And that’s after ordering 13 new Inglot shadows, 3 Inglot blushes plus a twenty shadow palette and a 4 blush one.

  197. Anna says:

    I just purchased te revlon nearly naked foundation yesterday because I realized my foundation was slightly to light for me! O.O Iam wearing it today for my friends wedding and so far Iam loving it. πŸ™‚

  198. Jenna N. says:

    As a law student in my last semester, I don’t really do daring makeup. Everyone dresses nicer than they did for college but tries not to stand out. I can’t imagine getting too crazy with my makeup. Oh well!

  199. Kate & Zena says:


  200. Melissa says:

    Is it my turn yet? Pretty please?

    My last drugstore purchase was Neutrogena Deep Clean cream cleanser. A great cleanser at a great price!

  216. ReneeP says:

    I need to shop! Been sick aaallll week and need something to perk me up!

  217. Heather says:

    I’ve never cosplayed, but it could be fun.

  218. Dominique says:

    I’ve been in a make-up rut these past few months. I need some motivation to amp things up since the spring collections are being revealed.

  219. Liz says:

    Since I’ve been fighting the flu this week, my makeup looks have been very simple and focused on disguising and distracting from my red nose, and wearing minimal eye makeup that doesn’t smear or run when I have a coughing fit.

    Yesterday was my birthday and today I went to Sephora and got my b-day gift from them and both the Glinda and Theodora “OZ” palettes from Urban Decay and I’m going to play with them tomorrow. πŸ™‚

  227. Katrina says:

    My most daring makeup look this week was wearing no makeup to work Friday and Saturday because my eyelids were puffy and I was worried about an eye infection.

  228. A. Mar says:

    I’ve dressed up as Columbia for Rocky Horror Picture Show midnight viewings but I’ve never been to a convention! I live vicariously through a friend who attends east coast conventions. But I just love looking at Comic Con and PAX videos every year to see the amazing things people put together. Or steampunk cosplay! I’m fairly convinced that my daughter will get all the nerd brushed off from my husband and I each Halloween for the rest of our lives. She was Luigi from Mario Bros last year and she made me put on a dress so she could call me Peach for about a week.

  229. I don’t get all that daring with my makeup that often, but I did line my eyes pretty heavy with Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner (which I love) and I think it did a good job of making my eyes pop.

    I bought the Lumene BB cream and it is great. Have worn it every day.

  236. Esther says:

    You’re a crazy cat lady and I like it!

  237. It’s been a week since one of our cats died from a liver complication. Our hearts (and souls) are crushed and there’s no word to describe the pain we’re feeling right now. They say it’s all going to pass and that everything will be better soon and we hope so too…

  238. Elly says:

    I’ve been having a nice weekend so far — brunch with family, ice skating, and cello practice with the boyfriend (just started classes!). Tomorrow going to see a play…

I know I’m in a room full of other like-minded individuals, but I’m too nervous/scared to do so. But this year, it will be different! I bought a Battlestar Galactica uniform (ex: Boomer) and a Totoro costume. πŸ˜›

  257. Kim says:

    My last purchase from the drugstore was the new Maybelline Color Whisper lipstick. I really like the formula, just not so sure I picked the best color for my coloring.

  258. Scarlett says:

    when you mentioned cosplay I got excited, because I’m actually a cosplayer who sews her own costumes. I cosplay as my favorite anime characters from sailor moon. This is something I do on the side besides volunteer for child charity events and work as therapist for sexually abused children. here’s a picture if you want to see. πŸ™‚

  264. TrippyPixie says:

    My last drugstore purchase was Lumene’s BB Cream. I found it to be alright, but I haven’t used it enough to have it grow on me yet. (Also, I’m not used to full coverage products. Since I’m younger, I tend to go for more sheer finishes.) My mom liked this product, though.

  265. dunya says:

    I am just working and doing homework this weekend. I did go to Target with some gift cards today but had so much boring home stuff to get I couldn’t even indulge in any beauty purchases, boo

  267. Corey says:

    I get a lot of nail polish from drug stores. The last color I bought from CVS was Essie Pink Diamond. It’s a frosty baby pink pearl, very 60’s/70’s. You can never have too many shades of pink polish!

  268. Michelle Teixeira says:

    I have never dressed up for a convention but my hubby and his brother have. We went to Comic Con and they couldn’t resist getting into the spirit. They are very easy going guys and attended a makeup convention with me to assist with all my purchases.

    Would love to try the Ojon hair product

    Favourite graphic novel — definitely the Fullmetal Alchemist series. Some great world building & plotting there, & very thoughtful take on a variety of issues. Also funny!

  284. Edna says:

    Favorite makeup tool- flat angled brush. Use it for crease work, eyebrows, eye liner, contouring… If I could only have one brush that would be it.

    I think my favorite director is definitely Terrence Malick (The New World, Bad Lands, The Thin Red Line, and Tree of Life) because he is literally the master of making a scene look absolutely stunning. Dialogue is usually meh though. But still, I think he remains the fave!

    I was thinking about that today….I want to buy drugstores stuff, but it doesn’t appeal to me…I wanna save some money, and buy cheaper, but in my head, drugstore = not good, or less good…..I am sure I am wrong, and there is some great things out there, I just don’t have time to look for it….

    The most daring look I created was not this week. It was actually back in August. I am in the military and I was in Djibouti Africa for 6 months. There is nothing really to do there during your off time. Well one bored day i was playing with makeup in 130 degree weather. I know “who does that”? I had about 2 hours before my shift. I wore a green and brown uniform there.So I decided to try and wear and green and brown make up. No big deal normally, but a no no while in uniform. The instructions states must complement the skin tone. To men that means earth So I walk into work and everyone had something to say. I told them that I am a women of color and every color complements my skin ton!! They had nothing else to say..

  319. I wear the most makeup out of any members of my family, my mom wears a bit, but only eyeshadow, blushm and mascara, while I wear bb cream, mascara, liner, eyeshadow, primers, blush, concealer, and eyebrow products every day.

    I’m supposed to be on an extremely tight budget and I still managed to become a Sephora VIB this year…*sigh*

  326. Zheting says:

    Last drugstore product I bought was Maybelline Bad to the Bronze colour tattoo and I love it. I think i like it better than my power ones because its easily applicable using fingers!

  335. jasmine says:

    I think I wear the most makeup in my family. I recently got my sister in law addicted to makeup. Well I shared my love for Sephora and she went online and surpassed my points. I’m also sure by this point she has more products than I do. I’ll admit I am happy that someone else in my family shares my love for makeup

    Can’t sleep which means time to catch up on beauty blogs… I recently tried revlon’s lip butter I was a bit disappointed with the color payoff, not so much the products fault but all the swatches I saw looked super pigmented.

  362. Fro says:

    Last drugstore item I bought were some makeup remover wipes. Boring, but a necessity!

  363. Pan’s Labyrinth is amazingggg! I’m kinda pumped that you tossed that in this post because whenever I mention that movie, most people are like “…huh?” And no one ever wants to watch it with me because I insist on watching the original Spanish version with English subtitles. Sigh. In other news, my last beauty splurge was last night on (more) nail polish. My hubster said my polish collection looks like a burgeoning addiction/problem…pssh.

  364. I have never dressed up for a convention or anything like that, but it is something I have always wanted to do!

    I love this blog! I am an hour and a half away from any major mall (husband stationed here) and without your reviews I would be totally lost on makeup purchases!

  367. Nina T says:

    Karen hope your weekend is relaxing. I’m “forced” to chill out this weekend. I’ve got one of the many viruses rolling around here in the East. Ugh! But I’ll make the most of it…at least I convinced the family that I own the remote for a few days!

  368. April says:

    The last drugstore makeup that I bought was the Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation and Powder. I’m still on the search for my holy grail foundation. I really like it so far πŸ˜€

    Hi Karen & Tabs!
    I’m not from the US, so the Archie comics don’t mean anything to me, but in the meantime I’m patiently waiting for MAC to do a collaboration with Neil Gaiman and turn The Sandman (AWESOME graphic novel!) into a MAC LE. I love Neil’s books and comics and would love to see it happen.
    Btw, your Archie’s posts this week? Awesome as well. Blogging on a whole new level. kudos!

    All the best,

    I just found your blog and I know I will return to it again and again. Your cat is beyond gorgeous!

    I’m wondering if you have an email newsletter that I can subscribe to? I didn’t notice one. Anyway, it’s a very attractive blog and I know I’m going to love it.

    I may be one of your older readers (67). I can easily spend way more time in Sephora and Ulta than I should. The reason I am interested in make-up (more now than ever before) is because most of my life I just wore very little, and what I did put on was just the usual – nothing too elaborate. Now I am curious about how to maintain, if not a youth glow, then a healthy and well-rested and vibrant appearance – not too much to ask I hope!

    So… I just enjoy watching tutorials, learning what’s new, seeing how products might work for me, and experimenting. I am blessed with very good skin (IMHO) so I try to make the most of it. And the clerks at Ulta are getting better about not ignoring their older customers. Seriously, I remember one time about 5-6 yrs ago when I went into Ulta, no one approached me to help or greet me. I thought about it and wondered if they thought I wouldn’t spend much money. But lately – for ex., I was just in Ulta yesterday at the Benefit brow bar – it has been a better experience: welcoming and helpful. As for Sephora, they have always had great customer service. And the department stores are good too – sometimes too good; they can be a little pushy. Enough about that!

    So thanks for being there, keep up the good work, and keep those product reviews coming!

  376. Heather says:

  378. Ana says:

    No one in my family is really “into” makeup as I am, but I love helping my mom, cousin and grandmother new products and learning tips and tricks from them!

  379. Lacey J. says:

    I am waiting for my backup of Mac Prolongwear Concealer, and bare study paint pot to come in the mail. I’m only half way through my first prolongwear concealer, but I just can’t bear to be without it. When I first got it I didn’t like it, in fact if just sat in one of my makeup drawers untouched for quite sometime. I decided to try it again a few weeks ago and I love it now. I wasn’t spreading it thin and allowing it the proper time to set before putting on the rest of my face.

  380. Wayne says:

    Team Betty! #Archie

  381. Cynthia F. says:

    I love make-up, but there’s no way I could ever beat one of my cousins. Once, she got horrible food poisoning and we had to call 911 to get her to the hospital, but she tried to lock the paramedics out of her room because she didn’t have any make-up on.

  382. Mandy says:

    I’m waiting for the Year of the snake collection by MAC to go online…it was supposed to go online yesterday! (This totaly sounds like i’m sitting with my Ipad on my lap the entire day, looking at the MAC website…well, actually i am hehehe!) O_o

  389. Neha says:

    Hi, I am Neha from India. I was a simple girl before. By simple I mean, I never used to use make-up. But recently my best friend introduced me to some amazing make-up products and make-up tips. She took me to Sephora outlet here in India which is the first outlet to be opened in India. I loved it so much but sadly everything was too expensive for me so couldn’t buy anything for myself. However I do plan to save for a while and then treat myself to something luxurious form Sephora! πŸ™‚

  421. Rossanne P says:

    I had oily skin and acne prone skin my whole life but now my skin cleared up and MAT Velvet by MUFE keeps it shine free. Since everything is shine free, Now I want the dewy look!! Oily skin doesn’t give you dewy, it gives you yucky. I wanted shine in all the right places so I purchased Mr. Bright. I would always feel like a movie star wearing the products. One person at the mall asked me if I was a model. Thank you random citizen.

  422. Nikki A says:

    I just repurchased my fave drugstore cleanser, Neutrogena anti-wrinkle anti-blemish face wash after trying a different Neutrogena wash that left me with fine pimples all over my jawline. I will never stray again.

    Thank you for the giveaway Karen!!!

  431. Diane says:

    “What was your most daring makeup look this week? What was the last drugstore beauty product you purchased, and how did it work out?”

    Two-in-one, my drugstore purchase was Maybelline Eyestudio in Caffeine Rush (as expected from the name, beautiful mocha and cream colors). My most daring makeup look was to layer all five colors in the set and it was beautiful! The color payoff was wonderful–much more pigment and saturation than you usually get with a drugstore brand. A little went a long way! I also made sure to use primer, so the look stayed all day and into the night with no fallout, yay!

  432. auroragyps says:

    The last drugstore beauty item I bought were two Milani Infinite Liquid Eye Liners in Everlast (black) and Forever (a golden bronze). I wanted the light green, but it looks like they don’t make it anymore. In fact, it looks like they may have revamped the liners because all the ones in the display had “NEW” stickers on them, they discontinued a few of the colors, & the constancy looks much thinker than what I’ve seen mentioned online. I was hoping these would be a good cheaper liquid liner to practice with, instead of the UD 24/7 one that came with the last UD Box of Shadows.

    My favorite director is Michel Gondry, who directed Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

  440. Jennifer says:

    Favorite Graphic Novel: The Exile (Outlander Series-Read the first book before reading the graphic novel. FYI-I have read the entire Outlander Series 4 times in the past year and I am currently listening my way through the series. If you are a writer, once you read Outlander, nothing else can compare.)

    DS beauty item: I recently picked up Revlon Photo Ready BB Cream SPF 30. I LOVE IT! Dewy finish, the lightest shade matched me perfectly (I’m usually one up from the lightest shade, but only 3 shades were available.) Lightish/sheer coverage.

    Karen-I grew up in Novato. I’ve lived in San Ramon for 20+ years now–but still go to Novato to have the taxes done. Let me know if you need a good tax preparer. –Jennifer

  468. Maggie says:

    I am SO happy that I “stumbled” upon your blog! I have really enjoyed your blogs, with the many beautiful pics you post, and your witty humor. My favorite so far has been the Archies MAC makeup reviews.
    The last thing that I have bought from the drugstores was the eyeshadow palette from Wet n Wild in Comfort Zone. The colors are pretty rich, and the price was great (buy one get 50% off). The palette is great to work with, and it is what I like to take on trips since they are so cheap, and easy to replace.

    My last purchase from the drugstore was Maybelline The Rocket Mascara. So far I like it.

  485. Ivy says:

    I just bought the Physicians Formula mascara in the green leaf tube. It seems decent enough but not ‘wow’.

  486. Kathryn L says:

    So I recently just bought the Maybellone Dream Smooth Moouse in the shade 240 Natural Beige and I really like it. The only problem is, when I put it on, it looks great, but when I take a picture with it, it looks SO WHITE!!!! It confuses me. I have a really hard time trying to match my skin with the right shade of foundation. And it’s especially hard at a drugstore because you can’t actually try it on. Also, I’ve been trying to contour my face, but I don’t think I’m doing it right. I guess I will just have to watch more YouTube videos, haha.

    I got a few of my close friends into makeup recently. So exciting!

    Well, my sister used to wear more make-up than me, but I didn’t seriously start wearing make-up until my late 20s. πŸ™‚ As for Del Toro, he’s amazing, but my main cutie is Benecio Del Toro. Hubba Hubba!

    Is it wrong that I might maybe have 3 Sephora orders enroute already…

    I ALMOST made it all of January without ordering…but my birthday is soon so it was time to fail. Then UD released those $!@# Oz palettes so there was orders #1/2. (You have to split them up to get more perks, rights?) And Sephora got the UD Smoked pencils back in stock in their sale section and I was going to get them on but happy to start building points at Sephora for VIB next year. So that was order #3.

    Yeah. 4 orders in 2+ weeks. I. Have. PROBLEMS.

    So…I promise I will make NO orders (except that Smashbox one) in February/March. No matter what… UNLESS – I get that $50 gift card. Then all bets are off.

  496. Lorraine ER says:

    The last makeup item I bought from the drugstore was one of the L’oreal infallible shadows, and a Maybelline Color Tattoo cream shadow. That was when they first came out, actually- I don’t have a makeup budget anymore so winning this would be awesome!

  497. Laura says:

    Last thing I purchased at the drugstore were some burt bees minis.

  498. Timeisha says:

    I am so amazingly excited for this week, this month and this year!!! I don’t know why but I just feel that this is going to be my year! πŸ™‚

  499. Pamela says:

    I’ve been to an anime convention before but I’ve never dressed up. I love looking at the photos online. The design that goes into some cosplay is amazing.

    If you have every donned an outfit we need to see a photo!

    Karen!! I finally put in an order for the Chanel loose powder about 5 minutes ago. I’m SO excited..good thing NM is from Dallas, so it will arrive quickly. Hopefully I will get the same “Chanel effect” that you did. LOL. Also dragged the hubby to Ulta today..he actually convinced me to buy the Clarisonic brush heads that come in a pack of 4 while I was browsing around trying to see what else I could get with the 20% off coupon. It was definitely a good deal..he’s a bargain shopper, I say! Hope you have a great week ahead.
