Man, if I were Blessedly Rich, I’d Cut Loose, yo! Fo’ reals! I would go buck wild. 🙂


LOL! Here’s a look at the last two Lipglasses from the MAC Hey, Sailor! collection, in case you were curious about the two we didn’t talk about with Ryan Gosling last week.

Like their three seafaring siblings, these are also $15.50 each.

Blessedly Rich

Question: What happens when you hit the lottery or start a social networking site in your dorm room at Harvard?
Answer: You become Blessedly Rich.

Every once in a while this shimmery pinkish coral flashes gold, cha-ching! Such a pretty shade (and no lip liner required!), but I wish it was a tad brighter…

Pigmented enough to wear on its own, Blessedly Rich also plays well with others (both neutrals and brights, like Hey, Sailor’s blues and greens)

Cut Loose

I’m sure there’s some lucky lad or lass out there who can rock this white gold with pearl on its own, but that someone is not me.

By itself, Cut Loose isn’t the easiest Lipglass to wear. A tad too much, and it appears milky and uneven, emphasizing my lip creases and lines (bluh!).

It’s better applied in small doses, methinks, like to highlight your pout with a dab in the center of your lower lip, which is something I’ve been doing with many of the lip color from the Hey, Sailor! collection — even the bright oranges and reds.

Set a course for Thursday, all ahead full!

I just want to let you know that you’re doing great this week. 🙂 You made it over the hump!


Hang in there. It’s all gravy from here.

What are you up to tonight? Right now I’m just trying to keep the house from blowing away. It’s windy like a hurricane in Novato tonight. Almost. I better hurry and get in my nightly TV allotment of 30 Rock reruns before the power goes out…

Quick! First 30 Rock episode that comes to mind? Mine is the one with Queen of Jordan, where Tracy’s wife is a reality star (“It’s my way, till payday”).

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    Blessedly Rich is such a gorgeous colour! It didn’t catch my eye before, but now I totally want it! You pulled off both shades so nicely! Love how they look on you!

    Are MAC lipglass sticky? I have only tried their cremesheen glasses..

    • Karen says:

      Hi Angel,

      Thank you!

      Yup, the texture of the Lipglasses is different than the Cremesheens. They’re thicker and stickier. Some people find them less moisturizing, but I don’t have that issue. I like both, and prefer the Lipglasses sometimes because they last longer. Let me know if you have any other questions! 🙂

  2. Jenna says:

    Hey Karen, how does Cut Loose compare to Nars’ Albatross?

    • Karen says:

      Hi Jenna,

      The two are totally different. Cut Loose is like more of a straight up white gloss, while Albatross is sheerer and has a more pronounced golden pearl. I think Albatross is so much easier to wear.

    Blessedly Rich has my name written all over it!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Musical,

      Yes! Are you a coral gloss girl too? 🙂

      • musical says:

        Yes! Blue+teal eyeliners and coral lip colors-doesn’t get better than that, does it ? ;).

        • Karen says:

          That combo is the best. It looks great all year long, but I especially love it for summer. 🙂

          What are your fave MAC corals? I love Lychee Luxe.

          • musical says:

            My favorite is “Red Devil”, which was my first Mac coral. The only other one i have is “Lychee Luxe”. Your comment tempted me to look for more, and i found this gem of a post on MBB-bookmarked! It features Red Devil-plus how droolworthy is the first picture!

            Shouldn’t play favorites with my corals, no, no, no :-D.

          • Karen says:

            Haha, I know that feeling all too well! You need to get Viva Glam Cyndi Lipglass in your life. It’s kinda hard to find, but sometimes if you ask for it at the MAC counter they might have an extra tube floating around.

  5. I like Blessedly Rich, but I’m not too sure what I can use Cut Loose for!

    I got the Blessedly Rich too and adore it 🙂 I think the color compliments a lot of ppl

  7. Kim says:

    Blessedly Rich is really pretty but I think Cut Loose looks good on you too. 🙂 On the agenda for tonight is a retirement party and baseball practice (we’re coaching the boys’ team if I forgot to mention that). I think we’ll go to MIB3 tomorrow night. YAY!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Kim,

      Do you guys have Baskin Robbins in your neck of the woods? They keep showing this commercial on TV featuring a special MIB flavor, and every time I see it my tummy rumbles, LOL!

      You have quite the athletes in your fam. Hockey, baseball…what else do the boys play?

  8. corallista says:

    I love you in liners on the upper lash, the navy looks great on your eyes!

  9. Nina says:

    The white one kinda scares me but the other ine is gorgeous!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Nina,

      Yeah it is! I was hoping it would be more gold, but alas…

      Anywho, how are you liking your Crew powder?

      • Nina says:

        Its gorgeous! I love how warm it is and im happy that the beige doesnt have any shimmer!

        I went and swatched the blushes yesterday and realized that Fleet Fast (that I wanted to buy) was almost a dupe of Crew … so I went home with a happy wallet since I didnt buy anything!!!

  10. Amber says:

    “That’s a Deal Breaker” comes to mind 🙂 but is quickly followed by many greats…..

    • Karen says:

      Ahh, I LOVE that one! The ep that follows it where Liz turns into “Performer Liz” and cuts her hair…so funny.

      My Tivo records the syndicated reruns every day. I just watched the “Milf Island” episode. Do you remember that one with Deb-OR-ah?
