A Makeup and Beauty Blog giveaway



Time to rise and shine (and spring forward!). :)

Happy Saturday, friend. I’ve been having a very nice morning so far. It’s sunny here today, so I’ve got the drapes open while I read magazines at the dining room table, drink my coffee and fiddle around online.

Not sure what I’m gonna do yet today… Part of me wants to go for a walk, or maybe a picnic (or both!), but we’ll see. I definitely want to do something outside.

I hope your weekend got off to a good start. Have you entered this weekend’s Sephora eCard giveaway yet? It only takes a comment and/or tweet. Full deets are down below.

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!!!”
-Shana

“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!!”
-Katie

“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!”
-Jane

“Shut the front door! OMG Karen, you have made my day. :) 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.”
-Angel

“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!”
-Zharlynne

“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)

    The best thing that has happened this year is easy :) on Jan. 22 my mom received a lung transplant, and I was able to spent three and a half weeks with my parents, helping them through the initial stages of recovery :) I wouldn’t trade that time for anything.

  3. Lauren says:

    My HG dry shampoos are the Pssst and Brunette Batiste. Neither build up and are very affordable. Happy Saturday Karen :)

  4. Neela says:

    Washing and waxing my car today. got it in december and it’s been crappy out ever since. i feel bad that i haven’t been able to do it before then. takes most of the day, but it looks great! i have a black 2008 vw beetle.

  5. Cynthia F. says:

    My school mascot was a koala. :)

  6. melody brown says:

    My mascot was a thunderbird…amazed myself that I remembered!

  7. Dee (and Maitai) says:

    I need to try a good dry shampoo. My biggest beauty challenge of right now is getting boxes upon boxes of it unpacked. Oh, the joys of moving.

  8. Kayla Ingram says:

    Happy Weekend, Karen!

  9. Stacy says:

    Not feeling very well today, but your Happy Saturday/Spring Forward post brightened my day. Thanks Karen!

  10. MollySC says:

    If I remember correctly, we didn’t have a school mascot, just the same colors as every other HS ever- blue and gold.

  11. Zoey says:

    I made some homemade bread last night… didn’t turn out great but not bad for a first try!

  12. Agata says:

    My favorite dry shampoo is TIGI Dirty Little Secret. I absolutely love highlighters! In Poland schools don’t have mascots so I didn’t have any. Have a great weekend Karen. The picnic idea sounds great!

  13. Rita O. says:

    I am going to see Morrissey tonight at the Regency in SF tonight. I’m really nervous!

  14. Theresa says:

    The best thing that’s happened to me this year is probably the smoothie I just made! (OK, probably not, but it’s a really good smoothie.)

  15. Charisse says:

    My high school mascot was a Raider. The picture looked like a ninja while I was there – a red and gold, non-stealth ninja. Then it got changed to this creepy looking knight. *shudder*

  16. nazih says:

    I’m on spring break!

  17. Jennifer Pham says:

    I just had two servings of oatmeal–one serving is NOT enough to fill me up!

    It is so nice here in DC today!! Spring is here!?

    thanks for the giveaway!!!

  20. Sarah E. says:

    Hi Karen & Tabs! :D
    This weekend is crunch time for me. I have a HUGE history exam (Ancient Greek/Roman) on Monday and I am freakingggg out about it :( This would be an amazing pick-me-up after a long week of studying and stressing!
    Also, I LOVEEE your blog! I’ve fallen more in love with makeup after reading your blog everyday! [My makeup collection loves you, my wallet on the other hand.... :P] Your reviews are so honest, and your pictures are in such great quality. I appreciate how much time and effort you put in to make your blog so amazing!
    I hope you have a great day! :))

  21. I drink cinnamon and rosemary tea to relive menstrual cramps- it works! plus it tastes yummy!

    thanks for the giveaway!

  22. Erin says:

    Today is my husband’s birthday, and it’s a beautiful sunny day in Eugene, Oregon. We will definitely be going for a walk and having a picnic, as well as hitting the mall for a few presents. And my high school mascot was a lancer (a knight) :)

  23. Christine says:

    I have oily skin and the occasional dry patches, so I find it difficult to find moisturizers that help combat both!

  24. Anna says:

    Love highlighter for nights out – my favorite is the gorgeous MAC Superb

  25. Lisa Brown says:

    My biggest skin care challenge: dehydrated skin.

  26. Vanessa says:

    I love highlighters for everyday in the office (it’s not very bright in there…)

  27. Love to use the phrase, “The dog barks at midnight” as often as possible. Why? ‘Cause I can. :D

  28. Sarah says:

    My biggest skin problem is probably that my skin is so dry right now, but it still looks oily. I don`t really know what to do about it and it drives me nuts!

  29. Jaa Maurer says:

    i like Suave Dry Shampoo =D

  30. Margie says:

    I am so excited to go to brunch with my best friend, who is visiting from Phoenix!

  31. Jaime says:

    My favorite dry shampoo os definitely Batiste blush – it works like a hot damn!

  32. Katie says:

    My fave dry shampoo is brunette batiste but I also use suave (in the gold can) cause it is cheaper.

  33. Rie says:

    I love batiste dry shampoo! works great!

  34. Mindy says:

    My school mascot was a comet.

  35. Rebekah says:

    I have been loving corals lately. I can’t wait for summer!

  36. Shalini says:

    I just got naked and naked 2 palettes … Am sooooo happy !!!!

  37. Elizabeth says:

    I wish it were warm enough here to have a picnic! Alas Canada is still too cold for that so staring out into the sunshine will have to suffice. However all this sun is making me loveee MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft & Gentle. Love it as a highlighter :)

  38. Shailly Sehgal says:

    I’m feeling happy today as I’m helping a friend :))
    A beautiful weekend to beautiful ladies:))

  39. BeckBeck says:

    I am still searching for a favorite dry shampoo – I haven’t found one that combines the magic characteristics of “doesn’t show up on medium-dark hair” and “can’t be smelled in the next county.”

  40. Lexi says:

    Fave dry shampoo is the Victorias Secret – that is pretty awesome and smells great.

  41. Katherine says:

    My biggest skincare problem is acne. I get breakouts whenever I have even the smallest amount of soybean oil. I try to avoid it, but it is in so many things, and it can be hard to get accurate information at restaurants, etc.

  42. Pam says:

    I like the Klorane dry shampoo.

  43. Vera says:

    can’t live without make up! because of my acne scars..

  44. Littlestelf says:

    I love Sephora! The samples they offer to “beauty insiders” are very generous.

  45. Jennifer R. says:

    My High school mascot was a bulldog

  46. Y. says:

    having trouble with acne:( either too oily or dried out skin:(

  47. Denise says:

    Dark undereye circles are my biggest skincare dilemma. They’re the hereditary type, not the no-sleep type, so there’s really not much I can do for them other than try and find a good concealer.

  48. Eunice Chua says:

    My biggest skincare challenge is that my skin is so sensitive I easily get red marks/rushes when I apply make-up so I really have a hard time finding the right brands that fits my skin.

  49. JL says:

    Highlights are weekend-only items for me because of work. But I can’t help collecting them!

  50. Connie says:

    My mascot is the wildcats!

  51. Ashley Marie says:

    My high school mascot was the Tiger. RAWR!

  52. Would love it if you did more perfume reviews!

  53. nims says:

    Thanks for the giveaways!

  54. Rikki says:

    Why is running a blog sale such hard work? *sigh*

  55. Mackenzie says:

    Was on a new skincare regiment, and then my face still decided to break out post-vagina-egg-misplacement. Need to find something to help with redness that actually works as well–le sigh.

  56. Katrina says:

    My biggest challenge currently is dry skin. I’ve always had oily, acne prone skin so this is all new to me.

  57. Ava says:

    Thank you so much for having this giveaway!

  58. Mandy Sark says:

    I am procrastinating studying for a midterm by doing all those little chores that I keep meaning to do.

  59. sweeks1980 says:

    I like dry shampoo, but I have dark hair and I find that dry shampoo makes my hair look dull even if I brush out all of the excess.

  60. Mariee says:

    My biggest skincare challenge is acne and acne scars.

  61. Bearsmama says:

    I don’t believe we had a school mascot! But it has been soooo long that I could be just forgetting.:-/

  62. Denise says:

    Thank you for this opportunity, Karen!

  63. Aurdrey says:

    Hi,
    I love your blog yr awesome. Just left Sephora yesterday. I must say if you have not tried or purchased Lorac 3D lip gloss.. Ooowweeee i have to grab more. Theres nothing like the shine of this and glitter in it. Keep doing great things

  64. Yogirl says:

    I haven’t tried any dry shampoo yet.
    My biggest beauty challenge are the rec veins on my cheeks that will get worse when it is cold outside.

  65. Nadine says:

    Happy Saturday y’all! As a beauty addict, I’m always on the hunt for a great foundation. And therefore I can say, the best thing that happened to my skin this year was buying MUFE’s Mat Velvet+ foundation, it just rocks! My biggest skin dilemma is oily skin, so with this product I’m not running to the mirror all the time, I stay shine-free all day.
    btw, I always had my own mascot…it was Batman;-).

  66. Tiffanie says:

    It’s sunny here too. Yay for Spring!

  67. Nicole says:

    It’s finally nice and sunny where I live! (it’s been freeeezzzzing lately!)
    Woot!

  68. Yay for another giveaway. I need it! I just got a loooong long email from an ex-co-workers’ wife asking me if her husband ever tried to hit on me (yes) because she wants to confront his cheating ass… I SO do not want to get involved in this!

  69. Sandra G says:

    My high school mascot was a panther – it’s incredible to think that that was just last year! I’m a college freshman now and my new mascot is a gator.

  70. Ineke says:

    I can’t think of ‘the best thing’ that happened so far this year. There are a lot of ‘smaller’ things that make me very happy and grateful on a daily basis: my husband and my cat (I love them more every day), business is going well, amazing friends around,… Maybe the thing that excites me the most is that my mother finally decided to travel with me to Florida – just a girls trip. The time together with her is very important to me.
    Happy weekend!

  71. Michelle says:

    My favorite dry shampoo is All-Nighter styling powder.

  72. onegreatsmile says:

    I found a picture on the internet of the most mod turquoise bathroom I’ve ever seen. Everything about it was perfect… except it had no lighting! How’s a girl supposed to put on her makeup!?!?!?

  73. Step says:

    I like Batiste in the dark blue or pink cans. I like the brunette one, but it doesn’t smell as nice as the other ones.

  74. Jenn says:

    Dove makes my favorite dry shampoo :)

  75. Chanelle (C.M.) says:

    So in high school my school mascot was the Indian…racist??

  76. Stephanie says:

    The most exciting thing for me this year has been purchasing a new home. As makeup goes I love highlighters and I’m always on the look out for a great one for my skin tone.

  77. Jennie says:

    Would love to have extra cash to spend at sephora!!! Need new eye primer…

  78. Naomi T says:

    My school mascot was a panther.

  79. Nat M. says:

    Can’t wait til spring and spring makeup! Pastel nails :-)

  80. Rosa says:

    Hi Karen, oh pick me! I am lusting the new NARS Light Reflecting Pressed setting powder.

  81. Megan says:

    My high school mascot was (and is) a Native American chief.

  82. Justine says:

    The best thing that’s happened to me this year is that I got a new great job! Plus I moved to a new location and I’m loving it!

    I also never used to use highlighters until this year/end of last year. Mary Lou-manier by The Balm is my favorite!

    A whole day alone with my husband – no cares, no errands!
    The best kind of Saturday!

  90. Tina F. says:

    My high school mascot was falcon – which was pretty badass imo =D. My biggest makeup challenges are my huge pores near the t-zone and my mismatching eyelids T_T. I have one double eyelid and one hooded eyelid. P.S. Thanks Karen for the opportunity~

  91. Maureen says:

    I can’t wait for spring!

  92. Bunny says:

    My biggest skin challenge is flakiness… arg, I hate it so much!

  93. Terra says:

    Just recently found your website—love it !

  94. Heidi says:

    Biggest skin challenge continues to be the size of my pores.

  95. Nancy says:

  96. Sarah says:

    I actually haven’t found a decent dry shampoo, so I love seeing the recommendations! It seems so convenient for the super-busy

  97. Saddy says:

  102. Jesselyn says:

    I love The Following

  103. GB says:

    My high school mascot was the mustang.

  104. Lynn says:

    My biggest skin dilemmas are acne and dry skin, i can’t do much for the acne, and the dry skin is because of the weather i get wind burn easily. I’ve been using Yu-Be from sephora and it helps a bit. I’m currently also using Miracle Skin Transformer’s Heal Everything Balm, that’s little .80 oz is like $25! I will go thru it in 2 weeks!
    makes me wish sephora had a cash back program!!!!

  105. KPrice says:

    Cloudy and grey here. Good day just to snuggle with my doggie.

  106. C'enna says:

    My high school mascot was the lancers. Like a knight jousting. Im pretty sure i had too much school spirit back in the day but oh well. I dont know if its a best kept secret but i use baby lotion as a primer for my powder foundation and it works beautifully on my skin. It makes it look like a matte liquid finish. Im so excited for this weekend. I declared this the relaxed weekend where i just netflix a bunch of shows and watch it with my hubby. Pajamas and all :)

  107. Rene Groyer (@ReneGroyer) says:

    I have just used my beauty spoon to get the remains of a very expensive cream out of the most impractical bottle.Its incredible how much goes to waste if you don’t do this.I think the cosmetic companies do this on purpose so we buy more.

  108. Katie Contests says:

    My high school mascot was a blue jay. Evidently they are vicious creates when threatened.

  111. steph b says:

    I can’t do face highlighters. Shimmer on my eyes – absolutely. Shimmer on my cheeks – nope.

  112. Sydney says:

    My high school mascot was a Sailor. I’m in college and our mascot is a Viking.

  113. Ash G says:

    My school mascot was a hawk for high school and in college we were the green wave, but the guy running around in costume was a pelican named Riptide.

  114. Nicole says:

    My high school mascot was a Penguin.

  115. Rachel says:

    I’m still struggling with acne, even years after it’s “supposed” to be gone! It seems like every time I think I have it under control, I’ll have a huge breakout come out of nowhere! Blargh!

  116. Daniella says:

    Suave dry shampoo works very well for me and I love the grapefruit scent!

  117. Bhevarri says:

  121. Karla la says:

    My cat woke me up because he was hungry at 6am lol

  122. Kristen says:

    I had 3 different high school mascots because I went to 3 highschools. (no, not because I kept getting kicked out!)

  123. Boyana says:

    Just finished updating my blog and I’m going to bed. *Yawn*

  124. Sharon says:

    My school mascot was a Cougar(crenshaw high scchool in los angeles, california). I’m a newbie to all things makeup and I really am falling in love with e/s(nude colors) and lipsticks, my biggest skincare challenge/delimma at the moment is finding the right makeup/skincare regime for a woman of color going through menopause. Which cause’s my skin to change alot, some days my skin can be extra sensitive and others it’s very dry.

  125. tbriseno says:

    best thing this year: graduated nursing school and passed the board exam

  126. Vanessa says:

    Really want the Too Faced Summer eye palette!

  127. Katherine says:

    Tired of this dreary weather! Ready for spring!
    Katherine recently posted … Poached Eggs!

  128. Ellen says:

    The best thing to happen to me this year was seeing our first ultrasound with our baby looking like a baby instead of just a blob!

  129. Natalie says:

    My beauty secret? Wearing sunscreen rain or shine! Even if it’s a foggy day, I protect my skin daily with sunscreen. Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer is my go-to. With an SPF of 40+, I am confident knowing that I am lessening my risk for skin damage, particularly on my face. Both lightweight and nongreasy, as well as being a moisturizer? You can’t go wrong with that.

  130. Erin says:

    I few months ago I tried my first dry shampoo which was from Aveeno. I liked it well enough, it has a pleasant enough smell that dissipated quickly, and it was something like $7 at Target. I love seeing what dry shampoos the other commenters like, though! Lots of good recommendations to check out.

  131. Shana says:

    I get lots of fresh air on nice days! I feel like that’s sort of a beauty secret — release endorphins. :)

  132. Isabel says:

    The weekend has been good so far, but I haven’t been as productive as I should be!

  133. Heather USA (@aitch77) says:

    Bring on Spring! :D Thanks for the Giveaway!

  134. Ana says:

    I really want to get the new NARS lip pencil and the Hourglass ambient powders. Let’s make it happen! please

  135. Kylie says:

    My high school mascot was an owl. I do wonder if that’s why I’m obsessed with owls now. :P

  136. I have yet to find a dry shampoo that I like, actually. ALL of the aerosol ones I’ve tried make my hair smell really gross and/or feel REALLY disgusting–I mean even greasier than before! The only powdered one I’ve tried is Oscar Blandi’s version and while I don’t really like the lemon Lysol-scent, it’s not the worst. I still don’t feel really clean when I use it though, and my hair doesn’t feel any better so I don’t really use it that often :/

    The best thing to happen to me this year by far was becoming pregnant with my first child. Hubby and I have been wanting this for a really long time and it’s so exciting and it’s little scary that it’s finally coming true. Can’t wait to meet my little girl this May!

  142. gowri says:

    best think in my life is my cute little niece

  143. Suzi says:

    Hi Karen. I’m in the Marin Sephora pretty regularly on my trips from the East Bay to Sonoma County. I always think I might run into you and I’d have to say, “Hey Karen! How’s Tabs?” and you’d say, “Who the heck are you?”

  144. leetal says:

    you’re so awesome with your giveaways!

    Lush, “no drought” dry shampoo has been a godsend for my grease ball hair!

    My school mascot was a lion :)

  148. Christa says:

    Uh. My high school mascot was a gale. As in an angry tornado with eyes. Which was apparently too hard to make so Taz (the tazmanian devil) was the physical costume at football games. :-\

  149. Shelly says:

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend Karen! :)

  150. Hannah S. says:

    Sun is out in the PNW! What is this ball of fire in the sky??

    Oh! My high school mascot is a bulldog, a bit unthrilling. But, my elementary school mascot is a peanut! I always thought that was so unique and fun. I loved dressing up in school colors and wearing a golden peanut.

  153. Thornyfruit says:

    The chlorine in pool water always leaves me with dry itchy skin.

  154. Ondina says:

    I hung out at home today and nursed my DD7 through a stomach bug. She’s finally over it and just had some dinner. :)

  155. Morgan says:

    I love matte lips and how sleek and classic they look, but oh the flakes!!:(

  156. Elin LLB says:

    My favorite dry shampoo is Oscar Blandy, the one with the yellow package. Love the smell.

  157. Jeanette says:

    Psst… The best night moisturizer/makeup remover is 100% organic jojoba oil. Even better, my skin had a natural glow the next morning! ;)

  158. Heather says:

    It’s raining today! I’s so soothing.

  159. Lisa says:

    I’m using Philosophy moisturizer for nighttime right now, and I really like it.

    I really need to stop buying makeup but if I win I’ll have a great excuse :-)

  165. pre says:

    Sonia kashuk’s perfecting translucent illuminator is the only one I hv tried and I love it so far:)

  166. Sofia says:

    My favorite everyday make up routine is using Maybelline’s Dream BB cream and Revlon’s Nearly Naked pressed powder. It is the perfect combination for an everyday look without the heavy makeup, it’s cheap, and it still keeps you looking beautiful!

  167. Kimberly says:

    It’s such a nice day today.

  168. Mandy says:

    Still trying to get over my cold!

  169. jasmine says:

    My favorite dry shampoo is the big sexy dry shampoo. It smells really good and works wonder on my hair. I’ve tried so many expensive dry shampoos and I feel this one is the best. As for highlighters I love them! My first love came from MAC’s creme color base in pearl. After that I noticed Estee Lauder’s range of limited edition highlighters I love them. I missed out on the modern mercury highlighter but I was able to get superb by MAC which I love.

  170. mrsshukra says:

    Watching TV all day!

  171. Lately, my biggest skincare dilemma is dealing with rosacea, which I just self-diagnosed. I reacted really horribly to a witch hazel product I was trying and my cheeks get really rosy when I drink alcohol.

  172. Jenny D says:

    The new glosses and polishes from Dior are gorgeous!

  173. TrippyPixie says:

    My high school mascot was the Wolves. Our colors were red and white, but gray and black would also get thrown in somehow.

  174. Karen says:

    My high school mascot was a menehune. Not exactly a ferocious beast! LOL!

    My favorite dry shampoo is suave! The keratin dry shampoo works well and is good for a college student’s budget.

  189. Annie says:

    Thank you for the giveaway.
    I like the Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo. Works well and it makes my hair smell like Earl Grey tea.

  190. Stephanie says:

    My high school mascot was the Warrior. And not a very cool Warrior. I always thought he looked stupid. :/

  191. Jessica J says:

  202. karen says:

    Happy weekend!

    I had a disappointing trip to Sephora today. I wanted to check out the Illamasqua speckled polishes, which Sephora’s website insisted were available at the not-quite-local mall, but no dice.

  203. MelodyJ says:

    My biggest skincare challenge is finding inexpensive effective skincare products. Skincare products even drugstore brands are costing too much for me.

    Grimm is back from it’s break on NBC. I loved last night’s episode.

  204. Lorraine says:

    High school mascot was a shamrock. You know, the St. Patrick’s day kind.

  205. Chloe says:

    I have super dry skin and it is so hard to find good inexpensive skincare products!

  207. Liz Schauerte says:

    The best thing that happened to me this year was getting married! :)

  209. Kimmie says:

    Yay Tabs!

  210. Daphne says:

    My high school mascot were the Bears! Also, best thing that happened to me so far this year, I went to a live taping of American Idol and got to meet the judges and Ryan Seacrest!

  211. Irene says:

    My high school mascot was a Steer. I guess it was fitting since we were in Texas.

  212. A.C. says:

    Highlighters…I have two liquids right now but I want a powder highlighter so I’ve been reading reviews trying to find a highly recommended/great one! So many choices.

    Bought MUFE black aqualiner today. Love a brand new, perfectly sharpened liner!

  217. renu says:

    The best highlighting cream I have come across was the Olay Definity intense anti ageing one, it has been discontinued but if anyone knows of a replacement do give a shout.

  218. Eva ! says:

    Has anyone tried/used the NYX Dark Shadows palette? It looks so cute but I’m wondering about the quality.

  235. Clemence says:

    I really want to try the Too Faced Candlelight highlighter!

  236. anne says:

    My biggest skincare challenge: finding a product that could remove dark spots, manage oiliness, lessen redness and prevent future damage!

  240. Rachel K. says:

    You remind me of my auntie. She likes kitties and is funny.

  241. Laney says:

    I’m currently using Dior’s Amber Diamond as a highlighter. I really want to look into liquid highlighters once I’m done with this powder.

  242. Ashley says:

    I need some new nail tools ;)

  243. Joy says:

    I’m have ambivalent feelings toward highlighters. I love how it makes my face glow and makes it look fresh and dewy. On the downside, it seems to magnify my pores a gazillion times ;p

  244. Susan says:

    The best thing to happen to me this year is just surviving because of family and relationship events. Sometimes just holding your head above water is all you can do, and that’s ok. On a lighter (ha!) note, this is the year I discovered highlighters and I love them!

  245. ANNA says:

    I love, love the effect of cream highlighters (Illamasqua’s Aurora – OMG), but they rarely last all day on my oily skin :)

  246. JaNelle says:

    My high school mascot was a wolf. And lately my skin has been feeling beast like.. Rough and tough. Appropriate message pas?

  247. Christin says:

    No makeup today, feels naked ^^)

  248. Ivana says:

    My favorite dry schampoo is the one from Batiste scented with flower. It is cheap and good.

  249. GUSnail says:

    I’m hoping I can get my eyebrows threaded today.

  250. ReneeP says:

    I love a good highlighter. It makes me look healthy, even though I am not.

  251. Dijana says:

    cannot LIVE without bronzer, however i havent changed it up in years… ur new Too Faced reviews of their new bronzers is tempting me! :D

  252. Elizabeth says:

    My high school mascot was a tiger. Also, I
    like highlighters (the makeup kind and the neon yellow kind). :-)

  253. Libby says:

    I love Ojon dry shampoo (you can’t beat the scent). But Suave is so cheap!

  254. Tiffany says:

    My high school mascot was a raider. I love highlighters and I have several! I don’t think they’re necessary though.

  255. Eva says:

    Alas, shools in this corner of Europe don’t have mascots. A shame, really, as I think it’s a rather nice custom.

    And I don’t really get highlighters, so I don’t own any. But pasty pale as I am, I’d probably be better off learning to use a blush and / or a bronzer.

  256. Samantha says:

    Having just moved to denver from LA, just in time for winter, I’ve been feeling a little off my game. I can’t just go out ad go for a run or a bike ride anymore. The snow is beautiful but I’m really looking forward to some healthy, natural vitamin D in my life! Come”on Spring!

  257. Paola says:

    Best thing happening to me this year: moving to NYC!

  258. VictoriaJane says:

    I don’t really know how to use highlighters-got a Nars illuminator in a set and seems like I should be able to do SOMETHING with it :-)

  259. eunice says:

    My favorite dry shampoo is Klorane`s…until it evaporates after 3 uses ;)

  260. Darlene says:

    Love Oscar Blandi dry shampoo :)Looking forward to the new season of “The Client List”…starts tonight!!

  261. Liz says:

    I’ve never really gotten the hang of using highlighter. Maybe it’s my oily skin that looks shiny after a few hours no matter what I do to it, but highlighters always seem to be either not doing a thing or doing too much! Not a technique I’ve felt the need to work on either; I’d rather master the cat eye!

    Happy weekend Karen! Well, here in India, the weekend’s almost over, it’s post midnight on Sunday :(
    I have these freckles / sun spots on my face that just don’t seem to fade, no matter what skincare I use. I don’t know how I got them either coz I’m a regular user of sunscreen…sigh!

  297. Jennifer Ryder says:

    Wow,haven’t had any snow since Friday!! This weekend has been sunny. I love Daylight Savings Time.

  298. Sandy says:

    I love highlighters! But mostly for my eyes.

  299. Leslie says:

    I just started using a sample of Klorane Dry Shampoo, and I love it so far. The smell is less offensive than some of the others, and I find that it blends in better with my darker hair.

  300. Sakura says:

    I love using highlighting powder on my cheekbones to contour my face. I started doing this recently.

  301. Annika says:

    Honestly, I am not a fan of dry shampoo. I have fairly greasy hair and it never helps the grease. But, the one miracle product I do use is baby powder. All I do is sprinkle it on my hair, massage it into my hair and it literally zaps away oil and grease instantly.

  302. Vanessa F says:

    My high school mascot was an Aztec.

  306. Anna says:

    I would love to win this!

  307. zaira says:

    I would love to win this and buy the new Jasmine palette (:

    I ran my first 5k today in which I did NO walk intervals! Woohoo! Yay me! I like suave dry shampoo and Nars multiple St Bart’s as highlighter.

  315. Kim says:

    I was a cheerleader in high school so I know our mascot, the Viking, very well! The best dry shampoo EVER is Alterna Caviar. I have bangs so I’ve used every dry shampoo out there and this one destroys all the others!

  316. AnneB says:

    I love TreSemme’s dry shampoo!

  317. christine says:

    My biggest challenge is acne. Argh….I’m 38!

  318. tricia says:

    Apparently, fine lines and wrinkles are my biggest skincare problem. While at Ulta last week, an SA came up to me and said she was giving demos on the Clarisonic Opal and I looked like the “perfect candidate” to try it. Ha!

  319. Janet says:

    Love the graphics you make with Tabs! As always I appreciate you doing this giveaway :)

  320. June says:

    The sun’s out today and the air is crisp after the rains have past. =) My skin has been less dry after I started using Shiseido’s Super Advanced Restoring Cream! Wish it wasn’t so fragranced though – if anyone has suggestions for a good cream for dry skin, send them this way! Have a good Sunday Karen, and everyone!

  321. camille says:

    Hello! how are you doing with one less hour in the day? :/ well, hope sunday is treating you well! hmmmm……i have yet to visit a MAC counter. I’ve been searching for the perfect red lipstick for my skin tone, and i have narrowed it down to three shades….i just have to get to a MAC counter to verify! LoL. happy sunday. hope the bay is treating you well! :)

  322. BB says:

    Superb by MAC is a great high ligher (and, I’m sure, the original Estee Lauder version).

  327. Stacy B. says:

    My high school mascot was a Raider.

  328. Kelley P says:

    My biggest skincare secret is sunscreen. I have fair skin, so I wear a moisturizer with SPF 30 every day.

  329. MK says:

    I love Redken Powder Refresh 01 dry shampoo! I have tried just about all brands, and this one is by far the best for my hair, which is really dark and not very thick.

  330. Christina says:

    I am in a bit of a dilemma. I cannot figure out if I want to keep my Le Metier Melange Color Palette or return it. Loving 6 colors and probably only going to use 9 out of the 18 colours is not really worth $95, but the colours I love, OH! I love!!

  331. Gail says:

    What time is it – tomorrow AM is going to be rough

  332. lauren k k says:

    Hi Karen! I just bought clinique moisture surge tinted moisturizer and i’m loving it. I wore it skiing today and it didn’t feel heavy or gross like foundation but it still had good pigmented coverage!

  333. jasmine p says:

    my school mascot was a tiger…. grrrr

  334. Natalie says:

    I have an under-eye highlighter from Maybelline and I absolutely love it! I never really thought it was a necessary makeup item, but since finding this one I use it almost everyday. So pretty!

  335. Vikki M. says:

    Finally a warm day in PA.

  336. Felis says:

    I’ve been getting antsy about looking my age. Then the greeter at the diner I frequent asked if he knew me from high school. Kid is maybe 25. I’m pushing 40!!!

    So, okay, maybe I’m not looking as scary and withered as I was thinking. :)

  337. my high school mascot was a ram. Made for a lot of jokes lol. My fave dry shampoo is by Fekkaii and just bought my first can of Baptiste to give it a try. Thanks for the chance to win!

  338. Solangel says:

    Biggest challenge is dry skin for sure. I hate spending money on moisturizers that ultimately don’t work :(

  339. Brittany says:

    My school mascot was the Spartans. Strangely, from grade school all the way through undergraduate college, my school colors have always been black and gold. Weird.

  340. prachi shah says:

    I don’t usually take part in giveaways bit you are my favorite so I always enter your giveaway

  341. My high school mascot was a devil! My skin issue is that I’ve never had blackheads and now I do allll the time – I don’t get it. Or like it. Hmph.

  342. Larie says:

    My high school mascot was a wolverine – but ironically, the sign above our football field is not a wolverine, it’s apparently a rabid badger surrounded by purple, even though our colors were green and white (so, I guess we’re Hufflepuff if they got corrupted by Slytherin?)

  349. Melissa F says:

    My high school mascot was a ranger (a cowboy).

  350. Alexandra F says:

    High school mascot was a cougar. I really hope it’s me that wins this week. That would be the best thing :)

  351. Supriya says:

    My high school mascot was a spartan!

  352. Lillian says:

    Josie Maran’s Argan oil has been a big help with calming down breakouts. Seems counter-intuitive to put something oily on, but it has been great in balancing out my skin!

  353. Jan says:

    Its finally starting to feel like spring! YAY!!!

  354. Andrea Darst says:

    We didn’t have a school mascot…we were the Mariners so I guess it would’ve been a hard costume to come up with.

    I’ve been sick all weekend…my heart it’s giving me a hard time again :(

  356. Tania G says:

    Today was a first taste of spring after a very long and very cold winter. Finally was able to have the kids outside all day.

  357. LUCIANA says:

    It’s nice and warm in Arizona today!

  358. Katrina del Pozo says:

    The best thing that’s happened to me was getting engaged last Saturday!!

  359. Marie-josee Morin says:

    Just discovered you!!! love your blog!

  360. Toni Ann says:

    I’m sitting here with my boyfriend and asked him what I should write as a comment… he told me to say “I’m tired, I’m wasted, I love you, darling!” from one of our favorite movies, The Room. If you want a lot of good laughs and don’t mind watching a great, terrible movie, make sure you check it out! :)

  361. KaylaP says:

    Ohhhh I love me some highlighters!!! My fav is By Candlelight MSF from MAC. Gives me such a perfect glow! I seriously have 5 backups of it…lol.

  362. Rosemarie says:

    Hope you had a wonderful weekend! Thanks for the giveaway! :)

  363. Laura says:

    I just slathered olive oil on my face and now I can’t see any wrinkles. Score!

  364. Sunandha says:

    The best time this year is wat am having now . . . spending a few weeks with my parents in my home town . . .

  365. Tiffany N says:

    School mascot was a Chief, so boring & in no way exciting!! :)

  366. Shilo says:

    I’ve always wanted to have wavy/curly hair with the brown ombre color. Im obsessed with make up and wish i had lots of money to buy all the make up i wanted or had an amazing job like yours and get to play with make up for a living. <3

  367. PiratePigg says:

    I like highlighters, but I have to be careful with my oily skin. Usually I just highlight my inner corner and browbone and use some nude blush in lieu of bronzer, as I’m rather melanin challenged. :)

  368. ms says:

    i m loving mac party parrot.

  369. Miranda M. says:

    There’s not enough time in a day – but reading is awesome!

  370. Krista says:

    We were the mighty, mighty. Lancers!

  371. mn says:

    Just got the most amazing holo silver polish, can’t wait to try it out and celebrate ‘spring forward’.

  372. brittany says:

    I have a $55 shopping cart at sephora.com right now!!! OOOOOh

  373. I love using baby powder as dry shampoo, but I get tired of the smell, so I’ll spay the suave dry shampoo over it. Just gotta be sure to really work it into the hair or else there’s a gray cast (on black hair)

  374. Carmen says:

    This is such a nice day! So glad it’s going to be nice all week.
    Hope you all had a nice one!

  375. This week’s SNL was the best SNL I’ve seen in a long time.
    I have no idea what to talk about, oh no.

  376. Amanda G. says:

    Almost….fashionably late :)

  377. Krystal says:

    I’m twenty and I have a one year old brother.

  378. Summer says:

    Now that I am 39 I am looking for my perfect foundation! Tried several new ones recently hope I find it! Any suggestions?

  379. Janelle says:

    I had to go into work today. Le sigh.

  380. Effie says:

    I use aquaphor and vitamin e as my eye cream!

  381. Doreena Silva says:

    So Happy Spring is in the air here on Long Island! Hoping it warms up fast so I can take my turtles out for a walk!

  382. Sophia says:

    I use Pssst dry shampoo but not too impressed. Just rediscovered Chanel illuminating liquid…AMAZING. My highschool mascot was actually an Indian AND a penguin (I went to an all-girls Catholic school)

  383. Brianna says:

    Favorite beauty secret: If you’re getting pimples around your jaw line, STOP TAKING BIRTH CONTROL! They say it’s supposed to clear up acne, but I am sensitive to hormones and when I stopped taking it my skin cleared right up!

  384. Samma says:

    I can’t wait for my daughter to one day start reading Harry Potter.

  385. Samantha Thomas says:

    High school mascot Is an Indian

  386. Lola AM says:

    I have combination skin, but in the winter my cheeks and nose get really dry and flakey. Also within the last five years, I’ve developed mild rosacea. :-(

  387. Ashley Win says:

    I love the bb cream by maybelline even though i think it may be a tad bit to light but I think it cleared a break out i had… lol Wish there were darker shades.

  388. Tania says:

    The make up kind highlighters remark made me think of something. There are markers and Crayons for eyes and lips. What about a highlighter that looks like an office supply one? Oh and have you tried any of the new concealer crayons?

  389. Dawn says:

    I love highlighters on other people. For me, I just can’t seem to make them look right on me.

  390. Bessie says:

    My school mascot was Rory the Lion because we called ourselves the Royals.

  391. Cara says:

    Last week of school! Spring break can’t come soon enough!

  392. Justine says:

    Suave Professionals is my favorite dry shampoo spray.

  393. Jessica says:

    I love sephora!

  394. Haley says:

    I really want to try highlighters because they look aaaaamazing :)

  395. caroline says:

    My favorite makeup brand is Becca. its really a great product.. perfect for my skin type.. I love it so much

  396. AmyD says:

    the changing weather’s been tough out here – my skin’s been looking a little dry lately :(

  397. Faiza says:

    My new find is Ponds rejuvenating face cream. Makes my skin feel sooo fresh!

  398. Lila says:

    My HS mascot was a Cobra!

  399. Rozae says:

    I suffer from dry patches every winter season, this year Aveeno Eczema seems to do the work.

  400. Angela says:

    My biggest beauty concern is that I sweat a lot! I’m in surgical menopause so I have brutal hot flashes that melt makeup! So, I moisturiZe & prime then use UD Primer Potion, Loreal Infallible eyeshadow or Maybelline Color Tattoo color as base colors. Then I layer other shadow on top while the other colors are still “Drying” I add other less long wearing colors that I like. My favorite & fastest look is to use (Loreal) Amber Rush on inner 1/3 of lid & browbone, Bronzed Taupe in middle 1/3, & Bottomless Java in outer section then layer over that with UD Naked colors Sidecar & Dark Horse. Add Loreal waterproof telescopic liquid eyeliner & mascara. That gives me solid water proofing so I don’t have to worry about melting or migrating down my face. I make my own dry shampoo & I love highlighter!

  401. eRiN says:

    I LOVE indie makeup but I still lust after stuff at Sephora …

  402. Bons says:

    Have sensitive skin, love to shop at Sephora for some products that are best suited for my skin type.

  403. Rosie says:

    There’s something so relaxing just popping into a non busy Sephora to swatch and try on the newest beauty products! Long live Sephora!

  404. Amy says:

    daylight savings time is annoying.

  405. Dana Gadir says:

    My biggest skin challenge is finding a product that suits my skin type no matter the weather or other outside factors!

  406. Aida says:

    On Friday I bought my second Dior quint, 970 Stylish Move… I bought my first, 254 Bleu De Paris only a week before. I think it’s safe to assume I’m becoming quickly obsessed with the Dior quints. A scary thought, because I already have a high-end obsession with Burberry, which is quickly growing into a sizable collection.

  407. Melissa says:

    Wow I think this is the latest I’ve ever added a comment. I need to go to sleep!

  408. amanda says:

    Haven’t been to sephora in forever, we have a new stand alone store coming in though ;)

  409. karen says:

    too late..

  410. Melodyy says:

    I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

  411. Colleen says:

    Listening to some old Rickie Lee Jones…
    Colleen recently posted … He sure is acquired a cool and inspired sorta jazz when he walk

  412. Aalia says:

    Okay so I have been loving the combo of the Clinique facial scrub and the Body Shop Blue Corn clay Mask. I have pretty oily skin, and my skin just feels clean but baby bottom soft afterwards =))

    Hope you had a good weekend!!

  413. Marcela says:

    My sister went on holiday, and I really miss her, but having her computer for myself rocks!

  414. marlena says:

    Yay Makeup and Beauty Blog!

  415. Mary says:

    My favorite dry shampoo is No Drought by Lush, I pretty much love all products made by Lush, but their dry shampoo is a great way to refresh my hair a little bit.

  416. Lisa B. says:

    My high school mascot was a Red Devil…and if you think that’s bad, it used to be a River Rat.

  417. Becky Richied says:

    I found that other than buying any dry shampoo that using babypowder has the same effect.
