YOU MUST CHOOSE: The Dirrrty Edition

Published in: Just For Fun



  1. One night at a party you meet your dream guy. You fall in love, get married, and then in your hotel room on your wedding night, he sits down and says he has something to confess. What’s his dirty little secret? — 1) that he wears Christian Louboutins around the house (hey, at least he wears your size) OR 2) that he can’t sleep unless he sucks on someone’s toes before bed? YOU MUST CHOOSE!
  2. If you had to do one or the other for a month, would you rather wear the same dirty pair o’ drawers OR rock Christina Aguilera’s chaps/bikini outfit from the Dirrrty video? YOU MUST CHOOSE!
  3. Would you rather go a year without brushing or washing your hair OR clean a dirty toilet once with your tongue? YOU MUST CHOOSE!
  4. If you had to do one or the other for three straight months, would you rather have to apply your makeup with dirty brushes OR skip brushing your teeth? YOU MUST CHOOSE!
  5. Would you rather have to give your SO a dirty lap dance in front of your parents (wearing nothing but lingerie) OR spend five hours making out with Spencer Pratt (tongue and all)? YOU MUST CHOOSE!

What’s up, my lovely Jo Polniaczeks?

It’s Friday, which I hope means you have a little time to ponder a YOU MUST CHOOSE.

To play, just copy the list and paste it with your answers in the comments. 🙂

1. Louboutins OR toe sucking?
2. Dirty drawers OR dirrrty outfit?
3. Skip brushing/washing your hair OR clean a toilet with your tongue?
4. Dirty makeup brushes OR skip brushing your teeth?
5. Dirty lap dance OR dirty Spencer Pratt?

Decleor Eye Make-Up Remover: I Only Have Eyes for You

Published in: Product Reviews, Skin Care


Ever since my allergies kicked into high gear a few weeks ago, my eyes have been a sensitive mess. Even my old standby makeup remover, Lancome Bi-Facil, which never used to bother my eyes, has been bringing me to tears.

I’ve been looking for a makeup remover that won’t bother my peepers, ideally one able to remove waterproof makeup, and last week I started using Decleor’s Eye Make-Up Remover Gel ($28) for sensitive eyes.

It’s a watery gel with a thin consistency, neither sticky nor greasy, and it smells lightly of chamomile. To use it I soak a cotton ball and then gently wipe at the makeup around my eyes.

First, it works, removing everything — even waterproof mascara. Second, it doesn’t bug my eyes.

I’ve been using it for about a week, and I think my lids already look a little less puffy.

Something else — the skin around my eyes feels hydrated after using Decleor, not stripped of moisture. At $28, it costs a little more than Lancome Bi-Facil ($24), but it works, and my ultra-sensitive eyes don’t complain. That makes the price easier to bear.

Decleor Eye Make-Up Remover Gel

Price: $28 for a 5-oz bottle
Use: A chamomile-scented eye makeup remover for super sensitive eyes and skin
Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B+

You might like Decleor Eye Make-Up Remover Gel if…

  1. your eyes protest a lot of other makeup removers,
  2. you’re on the market for something able to remove waterproof mascara, or
  3. you’re comfortable spending top dollar to try something new.

Man in the mirror


Holy crap! Can you believe MJ’s gone? And Farrah Fawcett too?

MJ’s music was such a huge part of my childhood… It’s the end of an era. I’ve been moonwalking around the apartment and singing Man in the Mirror all afternoon.
