Wearing the New Anastasia Kisses on My List Volume 2 Hydrafull Gloss in Sharona

Um…like I really needed another excuse to randomly bust out in song today.

Sun’s up? That’s a good reason. Cup of coffee? That’s a good reason. Tabs hasn’t scratched my ankles yet? That’s a good reason. Waiting in line at Trader Joe’s, taking Tabs for a walk, indoor plumbing, having ice cream for dinner, sitting in front of the computer like I am right now? All good enough reasons.


But lately, I’ve been singing aloud with even more gusto than usual, like I’m stuck in an a very special episode of Glee (guest starring Tabs the Cat and Karen of Makeup and Beauty Blog), and I MUST EMOTE! 🙂

I wonder if it has something to do with Anastasia…

I’ve been wearing the new glosses in her latest set a lot this week, and not just because they shine like my tubby tabby’s eyes.

Most of the glosses in the limited edition $30 holiday Kisses on My List Volume 2 Hydrafull Gloss Set of six full-size tubes are named after a different old-school jam.

There’s Lola, a shimmery, cool pink that changes to a deeper hue after a few minutes on the lips (Anastasia calls these Hypercolor glosses); Maggie May, a sheer and creamy nude; Jolene, a shimmery rose (another one of the Hypercolors); Roxanne, a shimmery gold (also a Hypercolor); and Sharona, a sheer and shimmery peach.

The only one I don’t recognize from a song is Moi, a sheer and creamy pink (got any ideas about the name?).

The other day I took out Roxanne and applied a single layer.

No, it did not sting. 🙂 Nor did the police arrive (ba-dum bum!).

But I did feel inspired to pretend the tube was a microphone and belted out, “Rrrrrox-anne! You don’t have to put on the red light!” in the middle of my living room.

You might be thinking, “K, you so crazy! I love good glosses too, but there’s no way one would make me sing in public or my living room.”

You never know, my friend. Even if you’re the silent type, this set is one heck of a deal. In the set, the glosses work out to just $5 per tube, versus the $18 they usually sell for individually.

The Anastasia Kisses on My List Volume 2 Hydrafull Gloss Set

  • Comes with three rather sheer glosses and three moderately pigmented Hypercolor shades
  • The thin plastic applicator paddle spreads the product evenly across my lips
  • All six have a moderately sticky texture, with a faint vanilla flavor and scent
  • I get between 3-4 hours of wear
  • The glosses feel fairly moisturizing on my lips, although the Hypercolors seem a tad drying
  • Paraben- and cruelty-free (so Tabs gives them two paws up!)

If your plan is to get an early start on your holiday shopping this year, this set might be a good option for party gift bags, as the individual glosses would make cute stocking stuffers and gifts for goodie bags.

PRICE: $30
AVAILABILITY: Available now at Sephora stores and also online at (although last I checked, it was sold out online)
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: A- (a great deal, but I wish the Hypercolors were just as moisturizing as the regular glosses)

Late to the game!

Not much on TV lately, so Netflix has been saving my butt. Last night I fired up a few episodes from the first season of Friday Night Lights, which I’d never really watched before, and you know what? — pretty good show!

I’m three episodes in now and totally hooked. I’m not sure if it’s still on the air, but it takes place in a small Texas town where life kinda revolves around their high school football team.

I’m not a big fan of the shaky handheld camerawork (so over that), and sometimes it ventures into telenovela territory, like when Tim starts sleeping with his paralyzed best friend’s girlfriend…

Okay…that’s pretty bad, but seriously, it’s usually better than that. 🙂 I get the feeling that the writers were really in control of the story and knew where they wanted it to go.


Funny thing is, I don’t know squat about high school football, and yet I get all fired up listening to the coach fire up the players on the team.

Makes me want to crank out 20 push-ups and then give 200% to my keyboard today!

Did you ever watch the show? What did you think?

    These might be good for my sister. Something to think about as her birthday is in a few months and she doesn’t every buy herself make up except her Bare Essentials.

    I haven’t watched that show but it is on my queue. I currently catching up to Sons of Anarchy and after that I think I want to start watching Breaking Bad since I’ve heard so many great things about it.

      WHAT?!? We need to fix that and get some saucier makeup into your sister’s life.

      I remember you mentioning that Sons of Anarchy is really good. I’ll add that one to my list!

      How have you been? We need to go to Ricky’s one more time before the weather gets gnarly again.

  2. Windie says:

    Hi Karen,

    Jolene, Lola and Roxanne look really great.
    Are the products made in US or from China?


  3. Nina says:

    Gorgeous gorgeous set! It would be a perfect gift, too! 🙂

  4. Ahana says:

    Lovely shades. 🙂

  5. Jennifer Rivera says:

    FNL gets better as you continue to watch. So keep watching! When you get to the final season for the last episode, make sure you have the tissue box near you 😊

  6. Lulle says:

    This kit could make a nice gift! These are all classic shades that can be flattering on anyone.
    I have a mini Moi gloss and I love how it feels.

    I love these glosses-BUT, don’t care for the applicator :(. It makes for the messiest, most cumbersome application. Why wouldn’t they use a regular doe-foot applicator?! I always have to use another applicator for these glosses.

    Lovely colors, though. And your eye make-up is super-pretty! How is your day going?

    • Karen says:

      Hey Musical!

      Aww, I don’t mind the paddle applicator… but yeah, I’ll take a good doe foot any day of the week.

      My day was great, it’s just been REALLY long. It’s almost 11 and I’m still sitting in front of my computer. At least I’m having fun, right? That’s what’s important.

      How was your day?

    Besides the fact that this set is such a great deal, I would buy these for the musical references! My Sharona and Jolene are two of my all-time favorite karaoke songs :). What’s your go-to karaoke song??

    I love the names but I’m no help on the Moi, either. Truth be told, I’m not sure I know Jolene. I’m good on the rest. 🙂

    I haven’t seen Friday Night Lights but I know it was always well reviewed. Thank goodness for Netflix, right? Btw, if you haven’t seen the movie Hoosiers, I highly recommend it. You don’t have to be a high school basketball fan (which is why it came to mind).

    Hey you are looking gorgeous Karen!! 🙂

  15. Wendy says:

    That show is amazeballs, I couldn’t help but fall in love with Matt and swoon over Riggins highly underrated show.
    Happy weekend.

  16. Jennifer says:

    I have two of these lip glosses and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the color but the spatula thing is taking some getting used to for me. I prefer a brush, can deal with sponge but a spatula???

    What did you think of that? I know you said it spread evenly but is there a trick to it that maybe I’m not getting?
