Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, April 11

Published in: Just For Fun

  • You might be wondering, “So what the heck is this Monday Poll thing anyway?”
    Well, it isn’t much of a poll. It’s more just a constantly evolving (devolving?), somewhat random list of questions I’ve been putting out to readers every Monday morning for the past three years, which I guess makes this somewhere around Vol. 165. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
  1. Mood:
  2. Excited! I have a feeling this is going to be a great week. :)

  3. Food you’re craving *right now*?
  4. (Even though it’s morning) Spinach lasagna, garlic bread and a green salad. I’ve been running a lot and my body’s craving carbs like crazy!

  5. Favorite eye cream and why?
  6. Korres Quercetin and Oak Eye Cream. I started using it last summer and am already on my third bottle. It absorbs quickly, keeps my hella dry skin hydrated, and layers well beneath makeup. I can’t really tell if it’s helped the fine line situation, but I don’t think they look any worse.

  7. Ballet flats: yea or nay?
  8. Nay way. They hurt and make me feel even shorter (I need at least a two-inch heel to feel comfy).

  9. Which of your makeup brushes do you use least often?
  10. The MAC 219 Pencil Brush. Originally, I got it to apply and smudge shadows along my lower my lash lines, but it’s kinda scratchy and tends to over-apply product. The only thing I ever really use it for now is to add a little shadow at the inner corners of my eyes.

  11. What’s your favorite eyeliner and why?
  12. MAC Powersurge Eye Kohl is MY JAM! When I’m running behind and need to get out the door in a hurry, I add a little Powersurge along my upper and lower lashes. It gives my look a little something without me looking like I’m trying too hard.

  13. Would you rather spend your Friday night alone or with others?
  14. It depends on what kind if week I’ve had. When I’m really, really beat, I prefer to be alone.

  15. What colors would I see most if I looked in your closet?
  16. Different shades of blue, some green, a little bit of pink, orange and A LOT of black. LOL! I just realized the colors I wear resemble a bruise…

  17. Can you ride a bike while wearing a dress?
  18. Oh, hell no. That’s a recipe for certain doom!

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. Just one this week. Enjoy the process.

Okay, so this is totally weird and I hope you can forgive me for it, but last night, for the first time, I had a nightmare about pimple popping. I dreamt I had a pimple on my cheek, and when I popped it, a frickin’ rubber ducky emerged from the pore. It was a small one, but still… Yes, I believe I should stop eating right before bedtime.

I hope you’re feeling rested and ready to start the week. If you have a moment, come say hi in the Monday poll.

    1. Mood:
    -Excellent! I took my allergy meds early and am feeling like today is going to be lovely!

    2. Food you’re craving *right now*?
    Stuffing (a.k.a. dressing…) OMG. I’ve been wanting a full on Thanksgiving spread for some days now, but I’m especially craving stuffing w/cranberry sauce! Mmmmm.

    3. Favorite eye cream and why?
    Don’t really use it but my fave moisturizer is Philosophy Hope in a Jar for sensitive skin (but damn my sensitive skin because I think it’s been breaking me out! :(

    4. Ballet flats – yea or nay?
    Ummm yea…I am 5’1 and I hate being in flats too but I do like the look/comfort factor

    5. Which of your makeup brushes do you use least often?
    Lately, all of them :-/ For one it’s allergy season and I tend to forget I’m wearing makeup and rub my eyes and end up looking like a racoon, so I’ve been a bare faced lip gloss girl…plus, my fingers have been doing a great application job these days when I do feel like sprucing it up!

    6. What’s favorite eyeliner and why?
    I’d have to say it’s L’Oreal’s creme eyeliner, I don’t know the official name but it’s a little paint pot that comes with it’s own brush and it’s been a staple item for me since it’s release…just as good as MAC in my opinion!

    7. Would you rather spend your Friday night alone or with others?
    Sometimes alone, sometimes with others…I can be kinda reclusive or kinda extroverted…

    8. What colors would I see if I looked in your closet?
    Teals, blacks n grays, red, oranges, multi colored prints…I’m a big fan of colors :)

    3. Favorite eye cream and why? clinique all about eyes rich – its the only one that doesnt make my sensitive eyes water.

    4. Ballet flats – yea or nay? yay! its comfy and instantly livens up any outfit!

    5. Which of your makeup brushes do you use least often? mac 224 — its okay but a bit too large for my small lid space. ive taken to using it to set my under eye concealer w/ BE well rested or LM secret brightening powder.

    6. What’s favorite eyeliner and why? ud 24x7s – all of them! they stay put on my lids all day!

    7. Would you rather spend your Friday night alone or with others? i dont mind spending it alone. i can be a lone wolf at times.

    8. What colors would I see if I looked in your closet? a lot of gray! greens, oranges, yellows, blacks.

    9. Can you ride a bike while wearing a dress? yes!

    10. Weekly goals: just chill, stay focused and smile! :)

    • Karen says:

      I use my 224 for for the same exact thing! I find that when I try to use it in the crease it just muddles everything up.

      And wow, props to you for being able to ride a bike with a dress on.

      • Nina says:

        the hubs made me relearn to ride a bike (i hadnt ridden one in years).

        caveat though: i can only ride a bike w/ a flowy skirt on. not a mini or a pencil skirt – that would defy all laws of modesty!

        for a while, i felt the 224 was a waste of $$. im just glad i found a use for it. :)

  3. Kim says:

    1. Mood: Exhausted. I stayed up very late reading Game of Thrones (which I’m really liking, btw, and became interested in after seeing that HBO will be doing a series).
    2. Food you’re craving *right now*? Believe it or not, nothing. I’m too tired to be hungry!
    3. Favorite eye cream and why? I’m liking strivectin, though I’m not sure it’s working any miracles on those wrinkles.
    4. Ballet flats – yea or nay? They’re cute looking, but I don’t own any. If they’re not sneakers, I’m hard pressed to put them on my feet. :)
    5. Which of your makeup brushes do you use least often? I guess my lip liner brush, which I don’t believe I’ve ever used. It just came with the set someone gave me.
    6. What’s favorite eyeliner and why? I think it would be Clinique’s Cream Shaper for Eyes in Chocolate Lustre (yes, I had to google the name). It’s a nice everyday brown shade with a little shimmer.
    7. Would you rather spend your Friday night alone or with others? With others.
    8. What colors would I see if I looked in your closet? Black, white and gray.
    9. Can you ride a bike while wearing a dress? Oh, sure. Though I’m rarely in a dress and I would definitely have it tucked up in an unflattering, verging on obscene, manner.
    10. Weekly goals: Finish my new book without sacrificing my treadmill time or my sleep!

  4. Laurina says:

    6. What’s favorite eyeliner and why? MAC Fluidline because it goes on smooth, easily, and it stays put!
    7. Would you rather spend your Friday night alone or with others? with others
    8. What colors would I see if I looked in your closet? lots of purple :-)

    10. Weekly goals: not fail my project management class

  5. 1. Mood:
    Feverish. Was sick with mild food poisoning and a fever, and am slowly recovering.

    2. Food you’re craving *right now*?
    None at the moment as I’m recovering, but I bet my cravings will come pretty soon :P I always have food cravings when I’m feeling better.

    3. Favorite eye cream and why?
    Clarins Eye Contour Gel- best eye cream (In this case, gel) I’ve used that actually minimises (Not completely diminishes) my dark eye circles and makes my eyes look more refreshed.

    4. Ballet flats – yea or nay?
    Not really- I have pretty long toes so toe cleavage shows, and I’m short so they just serve to make me shorter in a way.

    5. Which of your makeup brushes do you use least often?
    I hardly use brushes now.

    6. What’s favorite eyeliner and why?
    Kiss Me Heavy Rotation Liquid Eye Liner Pen. After going through so many pencil and liquid eyeliners this has to be the best I’ve ever used- it’s easy to use, dark enough, doesn’t run/smudge, lasts whole day and is easy to remove with eye make-up remover.

    7. Would you rather spend your Friday night alone or with others?
    It depends- mostly alone though, or with family and/or the boyfriend.

    8. What colors would I see if I looked in your closet?
    Black, white, red mostly. Some blue and greys and beige, though.

    9. Can you ride a bike while wearing a dress?
    I… could. But I wouldn’t :P

  6. Megan says:

    1. Mood: Giggly…because of the rubber ducky. That’s gonna get me through the day!
    2. Food you’re craving *right now*? I’d give my right arm for a bowl of Cocoa Puffs. Alas–we’re out of milk. Baby’s sleeping or I’d go get some. The box in the cupboard is taunting me.
    3. Favorite eye cream and why? Cetaphil’s Heavy Moisturizing Cream. It’s cheap, it works, and it’s one less extra step in my skincare regimen!
    4. Ballet flats – yea or nay? Oh yes. I’ve embraced my shortness (although really it’s because I equate heels with dressing up, and, well…).
    5. Which of your makeup brushes do you use least often? My paddle foundation brush. I use much less product, with better coverage, with my Sephora #55 foundation airbrush brush.
    6. What’s favorite eyeliner and why? Hourglass Visionaire shadow duo in Prism, used as a liner. The stuff stays on FOREVER, and Prism has a great dark charcoal with subtle microglitter. Love.

    Karen,
    Ooh I don’t like it when I have wierd dreams like that. Especially when they are real vivid and colorful (tend to dream in grayscale). It feels like I’m living another life! Eeek!! Is that L’oreal liner a HIP liner? If it is I have it in black. They are a nice and cheaper alternative to MAC’s and Bobbi Brown’s. I love the pencil brush. I use it to put shadow on top of the liner to make the liner budgeproof.

    1. Mood: content. Had a good weekend and a decent day so far.

    3. Favorite eye cream and why? I don’t use a cream I use the first Garnier Eyeroller. It’s small, quick, and depuff’s.

    5. Which of your makeup brushes do you use least often?
    I have a fan brush and I’m clueless on how to use it.
    6. What’s favorite eyeliner and why? I like several: CG Eyelights Eyeliner and L’oreal’s Infalliable. They are easy to apply, last awhile, and they never look harsh.
    7. Would you rather spend your Friday night alone or with others?
    Depends on the weekend. I’m an extrovert & introvert combo. If I have to much of one or the other it’s a VERY bad thing!
    8. What colors would I see if I looked in your closet? Pretty much any color except for pastels and lime green. Ick!
    9. Can you ride a bike while wearing a dress? Yes I can I’ve done it before. Especially since my dresses have to at least be to the knee.
    10. Weekly goals: Cross off things on my to-do list, return my library stuff on time, declutter some more, go on a walk everyday.

Def had to make up for that at the gym today though!

    3. Favorite eye cream and why? I don’t have one. I’m always on the look for a new good one. I’ve liked Origins a perfect world for eyes, I’m using one by Clinique that is only ok right now. I kinda wanna try the Korres quecerin and oak one, and the Origins starting over one too.

    5. Which of your makeup brushes do you use least often? Hmmm. Probably a cheapie Neutrogena one I got with a powder foundation one time. It’s almost like a kabuki but not quite, I either occasionally use it to blend blush, or apply bronzer to my neck/chest

    6. What’s favorite eyeliner and why? I really like the mechanical waterproof one by Sephora, in black of course. It’s soft, applies easily and really stays put.

    7. Would you rather spend your Friday night alone or with others? Usually others. If I’m tired just the hubs.

      You should adopt her!! She will have a rough time getting adopted anywhere. Even if the shelter seems strange for some reason, you could save her life! Adoption fees are usually around $100 in my experience!

    Tortellini with pesto. It’s currently microwaving in the kitchen!

    3. Favorite eye cream and why?

    2. Food you’re craving *right now*? Sea salt caramels. Love!

    4. Ballet flats – yea or nay? Love the look but my feet don’t like shoes that are totally flat without any structure.
    5. Which of your makeup brushes do you use least often? My pointed eyeliner brush. I’ve converted to the angle brush.
    6. What’s favorite eyeliner and why? Bobbi Brown gel liner. Love the clean, opaque line I get and the option to smudge it a bit. Plus, it lasts like nobody’s business.

    I don’t have one! I just pile on more moisturizer in that area. But I did recently find a sample size of Clinique’s All About Eyes Serum in the roll-on tube in a bathroom drawer. It’s so cute, I just don’t know if it really does anything. LOL.
    4. Ballet flats – yea or nay?
    I used to wear them ALL the time – until I discovered the power of heels. I’m 5’1″, so heels aren’t just fashionable, they give me height!
    5. Which of your makeup brushes do you use least often?
    I own few brushes, so I use all of them regularly except for my MAC 239 and Sonia Kashuk large crease brushes. I only use those for the special occasions I wear eyeshadow.
    6. What’s favorite eyeliner and why?
    I am an eyeliner fiend! I cannot choose a specific shade! Currently, it’s UD’s 24/7 in Binge. A great change from the browns I’ve been wearing all winter (and getting sick of). I love the UD 24/7s, MAC Technakohls, and Milani Liquif’eyes the most. I think I need to try that Powersurge of yours, Karen. That’s a gorgeous shade.

    Um… Lemmethinkfoawhile… The lip brush. No matter the lip colour I apply, I do not use a lip brush. I just don’t like it.

    I don’t have one yet. I’m always looking for somethnig that lasts.

    3. Favorite eye cream and why? Clinique All About Eyes Serum ($26.00 USD). This eye serum helps combat my under eye bags in the morning, and also brightens my eye area as time progresses.
    4. Ballet flats – yea or nay? Yes, I’m really not a high-heels girl (unless I’m going out clubbing, or it is absolutely necessary). I really prefer Vans, flats and flip-flops. It helps support my flat-footedness (is that even a word lol?)
    5. Which of your makeup brushes do you use least often? The fan brush. I do not wear foundation on myself, so this brush usually stays in my bag. I was told by my Makeup School instructors that it more-than-likely won’t be necessary to use this brush once I become a certified MUA, as well.
    6. What’s favorite eyeliner and why? NYX automatic eyeliner pencil ($2.39 USD: ULTA). I’m all about everything NYX, from the lipglosses and lipsticks, to the eyeshadows and eyeliners. They have a great product for a less expensive price.

I usually enjoy going out on a friday night to get my weekend started after a hard week of work and school, but since I’ve started MUA School and attend on the weekends from 9am-6pm I have had to put the T.G.I.F. parties on hold #priorities.
    8. What colors would I see if I looked in your closet? Mostly black and pink- these two colors are my absolute favorite colors. Black is slimming, seductive and classic & pink is girly and fun.
    9. Can you ride a bike while wearing a dress?depends on how long and loose the dress is. If it’s a knee-length summer dress, I say go for it.
    10. Weekly goals: To get enough sleep to not be so tired at MUA school this weekend, to work on my highlighting and contouring, to study my book for school this weekend, so I can have knowledge of airbrush makeup (since that is what we will be learning next) and to work on lighter strokes, so that I can become a well-rounded MUA.

    P.S. You’re not alone, my allergies have been kicking my butt since the beginning of last week. Thank the good Lord for Benadryl…

    1. Mood: i’d say i’m happy, at the moment! it’s awfully dreary outside and today was the first day back from spring break, but on the bright side I got three tests back today and they were all A’s!
    2. Food you’re craving *right now*? i have been craving fettuchini (sp) alfredo constantly the last two weeks! it’s sort of wierd.
    3. Favorite eye cream and why? i dont’ have one, but sometimes i use clinique’s roller ball thingy… not sure if that counts.
    4. Ballet flats – yea or nay? hmm, hard to say. i love me some heels.. but in high school you don’t see too many girls rocking them (but there are a few..) so i wear cute sandals in the spring/summer, usually, and flat booties (love these, probably have about six pairs!) in the fall/winter. i have flats, i just don’t wear them much.
    5. Which of your makeup brushes do you use least often? i don’t think i’ve picked up my lip brush more than once or twice.
    6. What’s favorite eyeliner and why? i haven’t been wearing eyeliner lately, but i sometimes get into a kick and i love wearing mac’s feline power kohl or the plum color of mufe aqua eyes, because it makes my eyes stand out.
    7. Would you rather spend your Friday night alone or with others? it depends. sometimes i am a hermit crab/home-body but i usually would prefer being out with friends on a friday night. and spend my sunday night with me!
    8. What colors would I see if I looked in your closet? mostly navy blue and taupe variations probably, with some pops of teal.
    9. Can you ride a bike while wearing a dress? i don’t ride bikes.. period. A fear that stemmed from a childhood event, unfortunately.

    1. Mood: Starting to droop a bit now that it’s mid-afternoon, but I’m going to Ikea after work so I’m sure that will perk me right up! :)

    2. Food you’re craving *right now*? Nothing really – my allergies have been going a bit crazy today and that tends to dampen my appetite and cravings. (The ONLY good thing my allergies have ever done for me!) :)

    3. Favorite eye cream and why? Just switched to Dermadoctor Wrinkle Revenge Eye Balm, after trying a sample from Sephora. It’s amazing. The consistency is perfect for my needs!

    4. Ballet flats – yea or nay? Super yay! My office is pretty casual and I love that they can transfer from day to night.

    5. Which of your makeup brushes do you use least often? All over powder brush. I use a kabuki brush to apply my mineral foundation so this really doesn’t get used much anymore.

    6. What’s favorite eyeliner and why? I don’t think I’ve found a perfect one for me yet. I liked MU4E and Bobbi Brown’s pot liner, but…

    7. Would you rather spend your Friday night alone or with others? Really depends. Most Fridays I’m just too tired to go anywhere, especially since I started working earlier and launched the photography business on the side!

    8. What colors would I see if I looked in your closet? All kinds! Love color! :)

    9. Can you ride a bike while wearing a dress? Haven’t tried in a long time, but I’m sure I could!

    1. Mood: A lot better than expected.

    2. Food you’re craving *right now*? My mom’s spinach quiche, which she made last night.

    3. Favorite eye cream and why? I have one of those Garnier roller-ball things right now, and I love it. It’s fun to use, the stuff just sinks into the skin right away, and my eyes feel a whole lot better.

    4. Ballet flats – yea or nay? Unless they have adequate padding and arch support on the inside, no. (I’m very serious about that arch support issue, BTW.)

    5. Which of your makeup brushes do you use least often? I can safely say that I use all of them… except my brushes for face powder. I have yet to find one that’s full and fluffy without totally falling apart on me.

    (Speaking of face powder dramz: Karen, have you heard about the big kerfuffle over Make Up For Ever’s HD loose powder? Seems like some celebrity artists don’t know how to use it, which explains why folks like Uma Thurman and Eva Longoria have been showing up on paparazzi photos looking like somebody threw flour on their face. That’s a lot of bad press for MUFE to deal with right now.)

    6. What’s favorite eyeliner and why? MAC Fluidline… but since I can’t afford that right now, my next answer would be Revlon’s Colorstay, which delivers as promised for me.

    7. Would you rather spend your Friday night alone or with others? I’d rather spend it with my friends, really.

    8. What colors would I see if I looked in your closet? Pinks, blues, and reds. And a lot of dark-colored pants.

    9. Can you ride a bike while wearing a dress? I wish!

    10. Weekly goals: Stay calm, get more reading done (I’m about to start on Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell), get more writing done, and just be genuinely positive overall.

But I start feeling that my tooth is loose, and when I look in the mirror, my tooth comes out and soon all of my teeth is coming out and I’m in desperate shock and crying! I woke up and ran to the bathroom and thankfully all my teeth were there :-)

    5. Which of your makeup brushes do you use least often? It’s a MAC brush — should be either 242 or 249, I really don’t find any use for it. It was in a set my dad bought for me, it’s such a sweet thought that I really want to keep even this useless brush! :D

    4. Ballet flats – yea or nay? I like them on other peoples feet. My feet they just end up looking weird.

    Can you ride a bike while wearing a dress? I hate biking. But I don’t think I could bike in a dress.

    Weekly goals: Study, study, study, stop procrastinating and rock those upcoming finals!!!

    1. Mood: Relieved! My semester is over and all I have left in one exam and it’s probably going to be an easy one.
    2. Food you’re craving *right now*? I just had crackers and cheese, so my latest craving has been satisfied :)
    3. Favorite eye cream and why? Eh, I don’t really have one. I’m on my second one ever and I think I’m too young to really see any effects yet.
    4. Ballet flats – yea or nay? Yay! They’re my transition footwear from boots to sandals.
    5. Which of your makeup brushes do you use least often? My “eyeshadow ‘c’ brush” from ELF. It’s to weird shaped, lol.
    6. What’s favorite eyeliner and why? I LOVE the Wet’n’Wild Creme Liner in black but I tend to be too lazy to bother with getting a brush and all haha.
    7. Would you rather spend your Friday night alone or with others? With others usually.
    8. What colors would I see if I looked in your closet? Mostly nuetrals (beige, brown, grey, taupe, black) with a few pops of colour.
    9. Can you ride a bike while wearing a dress? I can count the number of times I’ve worn a dress in the past year on the fingers of one hand, so I don’t think I should try.
    10. Weekly goals: To catch up on sleep and reorganize my room. A 6-course semester has left it looking less than wonderful.

    I know it’s way past Monday, but I feel like doing it :).

    1. Mood: depressed and sad (a great family friend died last week and we had his funeral today… he was like my second dad :(…)
    2. Food you’re craving right now?: Hot dog with melt cheese (I have quite a junk taste… and if sweets and stuff count, I just want some really really really icy and cold fruity popsicle… one whoch is rather water-based than milk-based…)
    3. Favorite eyecream and why? I haven’t yet used one… but I think I’m gonna start wearing one for prevention… I don’t have any wrinkles yet, but as I see my face when I’m laughing or blinking, I’m gonna have some “smiling wrinkles” in some years…
    4. Ballet flats-yea or nay? Ahm… tendong towards the yay option, because they are sooo cute… but I don’t think I’m gonna wear them (I mean, I have a pair here, but I don’t wear that too often, either)… I mean, I’m small (in between 5’2″ and 5’3″) and all the legs of my pants are cut with heels in my mind… so I think I’d wear the legs out too quickly…
    5. Which one of your make-up brishes do you use least often? There’s a noname kit I’ve got, and I absolutely adore most of it… but the lip brush is just a tragedy… a strand of hair just sticks out of the brush in the oppsite direction, and anyways, the application is just a mess with this… I have a Clinique mini one with a set, that works a 100000 times better.
    6. What’s your fave eyeliner and why? Astor’s EyeArtist kajal in 083, Earth Shimmer… I do not have a steady hand and I’m quite pale, so this dark brown is my black-it’s holy grail for me to contour my eyes… it just doesn’t look that bad if I mess it up and the whole thing turns out to be a bit more smudgy and smoky than I wanted it to be :).
    7. Would you rather spend your Friday night alone or with others? Totally depends on my mood and my week… and still then, it depends on with whom-there are friends I like more for partying, for theatre and for just talking about anything :P.
    8. What colors would I see if I looked in your closet? Quite a lot… but if I concentrate on the colors I wear the most now, I’d say white, royal blue, all kinds of steel greens, gray and black… but I’m planning to reach out to earth colors (mostly taupes) and not too bright corals this year :).
    9. Can you ride a bike while wearing a dress? I can’t even ride the bike :P.
    10. Weekly goals: quite a few… mall opening here (in principle I have a great coupon, yay! and there are AWESOME opening day bargains, too), book exchange market (at least when I could get something for the same value as the books I don’t need anymore)… and schoolwork…
