Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, August 29

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. 183. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
  1. Mood:
  2. Refreshed and ready. I slept unusually well last weekend (probably because I didn’t take my laptop to bed).

  3. Your favorite foundation and why?
  4. I’m fickle when it comes to foundation. I like to switch ‘em up often. Two of my recent infatuations were with Chanel Mat Lumiere and MAC Studio Sculpt), but right now I’m really into MAC Face & Body in C5 ($32.50). I like how lightweight it looks and feels, and it does a great job of evening out my skin tone and hiding little imperfections. It also photographs well when I’ve applied Careblends Pressed Powder on top.

  5. How do you feel about Mary Jane shoes?
  6. As long as they don’t look too much like the ones the kids wear — no chunky heels or rounded toes — I’m down. With a skinny heel and a slightly pointed toe, I think they can look chic.

  7. Three words that would describe you in seventh grade:
  8. Frizzy, awkward and shy.

  9. What are you wearing on your lips today?
  10. MAC Lipglass in Curvaceous from the MAC Me Over collection. It’s today’s obsession.

  11. What’s the last musical, opera or play you’ve seen?
  12. Dreamgirls last fall with El Hub… That was such a great day.

  13. If you were forced to choose between giving up your sense of smell, or giving up makeup entirely, which would you choose?
  14. Ouch! That’s a tough one. On the one hand I love makeup, but on the other, I can’t imagine never again smelling a flower, El Hub’s scent on my clothes, or Tabs (right now he smells like pizza dough).

    I’d give up makeup, but I’d then enlist the help of a kick-@ss dermatologist to get my skin in tip-top shape and a therapist to help me get through the emotional withdrawal (I’m so not kidding!).

  15. Who are the funniest pets/people you know?
  16. Some of you guys reading this now! :) You crack me up on a regular basis. I know I can also rely on El Hub, Tabs, my brother, my dad, my mom and my two BFFs, Jen and Cindy, for a good laugh.

  17. How do you like your grilled cheese sandwiches?
  18. I like them prepared the classic way, with American cheese slices (preferably Kraft or Velveeta), buttered white bread, and served with a big glob of ketchup for dipping, YUM!

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. Just one this week: to love myself.

Hello, pretty. :) I hope the sun comes out for you today.



I really didn’t do much last weekend, but I did get some cleaning and organizing done around the house and had dinner at a sushi place last night. That was good. I’ve been craving shrimp tempura rolls like CRAZY lately.

What do you have going on today? Do you have a minute to say hi with the Monday Poll?

  3. Jenna says:

    1. Mood: Head-achey

    2. Your favorite foundation and why? MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light/Medium is very natural looking. With a fair amount of concealer, it’s perfect. Though I’m having trouble finding a concealer that doesn’t break me out at the moment =(

    3. How do you feel about Mary Jane shoes? Love!

    4. Three words that would describe you in seventh grade: Frizzy wavy hair

    5. What are you wearing on your lips today? Er nothing actually. Busy day at the law school. I’ve got some Korres lip butter in my bag though, may put some of that on so I look a little more pulled together.

    6. What’s the last musical, opera or play you’ve seen? I saw Wicked in San Francisco over a year ago. It was okay, I was expecting better..

    1. Mood: Invigorated! When I woke up this morning to get ready for class, the sun was shining through the windows and it felt like one of those days to jump out of bed and face the world!

    2. Your favorite foundation and why? I’m quite fond of MAC Prolongwear Foundation mixed with a bit of MAC Oil Control Lotion to prevent the oilies and sheer out the foundation. I don’t need crazy coverage but I do like a nice even-ness to my complexion. I am considering checking out those tinted moisturizers from the Nuance line though!

    3. How do you feel about Mary Jane shoes? I actually have a pair with a bit of heel for a nice height boost but honestly I haven’t worn them for a while. They’re really cute but I’m trying for a bit more stylish cute sandal look nowadays.

    4. Three words that would describe you in seventh grade: RIDICULOUSLY shy, naive, and awkward (whether or not I’m more or less awkward in recent times is debatable :) )

    5. What are you wearing on your lips today? Burt Bee’s Mango Butter Lip Balm! I was trying to find that Lip Conditioning Lip Balm you reviewed but it wasn’t stocked at the Ulta I had gone to so I went for the Mango Butter balm instead.

    6. What’s the last musical, opera or play you’ve seen? The Hot-L Baltimore at the La Jolla Playhouse on the UCSD campus. I really need to go to more plays since the playhouse is right on my campus!

    7. Makeup or your sense of smell? Makeup. As makeup fanatic as I have become in recent times, it would make me so sad to not be able to experience the comforting smells like fresh sinigang soup. It reminds me of coming home from an Easter egg hunt and my grandma putting her finishing touches on a nice big pot of it :D

    8. Who are the funniest pets/people you know? ALL of best friends are hilarious! Just last weekend they made me laugh so hard that my sides were hurting! <3

    9. How do you like your grilled cheese sandwiches? I'd like a nice sturdy bread for a satisfying crunch buttered with baby swiss cheese in between (nice nutty flavor!) and tomato basil soup to dip it in!

    10. Weekly goals: Study, study, study for my metabolic biochemistry midterm! After that I get to enjoy the last few weeks of my summer vacation before my last year in college O_O It's so crazy how time flies! XD

    1. Mood: ok

    2. Your favorite foundation and why? I haven’t found it yet lol. I like YSL Teint Singulier Sheer Powdercreme Veil Foundation cos it has good coverage, looks natural and the lightest shade is pale enough for my skintone (which doesn’t happen often).

    1. Exhausted! Too much tv to watch last night… Jersey Shore, VMA’s, True Blood & Entourage.
    2. Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua in shade B40 bc of the color on my skin, buildable coverage, and fresh faced look. Althought I can’t wait to see the new Chanel foundation coming out in October with fuller coverage.
    3. I love a patent leather maryjane with a simple dress. Maybe too young of a look for me now (although I rocked it hard in my teens), I do think the pop of shiny it looks great with work pants.
    4. Shy, nieve, athletic!
    5. Carmex strawberry, Nars matte Montego Bay, & Nars ligloss in Piree.
    6. Um… Glee?!?! Lol
    7. If I gave up smell, could I still taste?
    8. My dog, my bff, and my step-dad and all his siblings.
    9. Thick texas toast heavily buttered with velveeta cheese.
    10. Study 20+ hours for the CPA exam this week.

  9. Alison M says:

    1. Mood: Worn out!

    2. Your favorite foundation and why? JUST did a post on this: http://iamalisonm.wordpress.com/2011/08/27/perfecting-my-face/

    3. How do you feel about Mary Jane shoes? With the right heel, heck yes!

    4. Three words that would describe you in seventh grade: gangly, metal-mouth, awkward

    5. What are you wearing on your lips today? Nothing! (Where on earth is my lip balm???)

    6. What’s the last musical, opera or play you’ve seen? Sadly, I don’t know. It has been far. too. long.

    7. Makeup or your sense of smell? Sense of smell all the way. I absolutely hate any strong scent and can’t handle if there’s something stinky nearby.

    8. Who are the funniest pets/people you know? My husband and I are an awesome comedy duo. When we’re on a roll, everyone’s belly achin’!

    9. How do you like your grilled cheese sandwiches? With lots of muenster and lots of butter. Yummmmmmmmmm.

    10. Weekly goals: Pack for vacation (woot woot!), be nicer to my husband, hit up Ulta, Babies R Us, Michaels and Target (preferably in one morning!), clean my bathrooms (yuck), and shampoo my couch.

  10. Kim says:

    1. Mood: Lovely! I thought I’d be crabby since our mini vacation ended today, but I’m pleasantly surprised. :)
    2. Your favorite foundation and why? Tarte Smooth Operator. It’s lightweight and I love how it glides on, in all its silicone-y goodness.
    3. How do you feel about Mary Jane shoes? I think they’re cute. Naturally, I don’t own any.
    4. Three words that would describe you in seventh grade: Curious, Opinionated, Tomboy.
    5. What are you wearing on your lips today? I’m bare today.
    6. What’s the last musical, opera or play you’ve seen? My nephew’s high school production in March. He was one of the leads and was fabulous. :)
    7. Makeup or your sense of smell? Oh, totally makeup. My friend’s dad lost his sense of smell and can barely taste anything because of it. Though, I’d have assumed it would be good for the waistline, he said it’s worse because he always thinks “I might be able to taste this next bite…”. Like you, I’d find a good dermatologist. And probably have my lashes and brows dyed!
    8. Who are the funniest pets/people you know? Definitely my bffs, the Hubs and my boys. Those people could have me cackling at the drop of a hat. And, of course, you know that you regularly have me snorting while reading your posts. :)
    9. How do you like your grilled cheese sandwiches? You can’t go wrong with bread, cheese and butter but I think the classic is probably my fave. White bread, butter and 2% Kraft American Slices (white, not orange). I like to dip mine in some homemade cocktail sauce.
    10. Weekly goals: Seriously, SERIOUSLY jump start my fitness program. I’m SO serious this time. Enough is enough on the “taking days off”.

    On a bright note, the hurricane yesterday showed us where the water was coming in the basement and the Hubs braved the storm with a shovel and a pile of dirt and fixed it. After an hour or so of bailing, we were dry and continued to be. Yay! We were also very fortunate not to lose power or have any major damage. Best wishes to all those who weren’t so lucky.

  11. Megan says:

    1. Mood: Blah. I have a ridiculous canker sore, and it’s killing my jaw and giving me a fever. Can’t chew, can’t speak well…blah.
    2. Your favorite foundation and why? Hourglass Illusion, but it’s a tinted moisturizer. Has the coverage of a foundation with tons of moisture.
    3. How do you feel about Mary Jane shoes? Love. I wear flats, for the most part, so as long as they’re not little girl, I’m in.
    4. Three words that would describe you in seventh grade: Shy. Quiet. Misunderstood.
    5. What are you wearing on your lips today? Bonne Bell strawberry LipSmackers :)
    6. What’s the last musical, opera or play you’ve seen? My parents got me tickets to go see a touring production of CATS for Christmas last year. I was terrified when they came down into the audience (I don’t do clowns well; imagine what life-size human cats would do to me) and couldn’t figure out what the heck was going on!
    7. Makeup or your sense of smell? Have to give up makeup. It’d kill me, but the thought of never smelling my baby’s head or my kitty’s fur again is worse.
    8. Who are the funniest pets/people you know? My friends Greg and Cory regularly crack me up to the point of tears.
    9. How do you like your grilled cheese sandwiches? Very specifically. Wheat bread, buttered, American cheese. Add sliced dill pickle, mayonnaise, and slices of tomato.
    10. Weekly goals: If this canker sore doesn’t go away, the goal’s gonna end up being “lose 5 pounds,” because not chewing will give me that. Ugh. Otherwise…be happier than I am now.

    5. What are you wearing on your lips today? Nothing
    6. What’s the last musical, opera or play you’ve seen? Oh wow. It’s been a while. Probably “A Chorus Line” about 4 years ago? It was in NYC.
    7. Makeup or your sense of smell? Makeup. I love me some scented candles, food, etc.
    8. Who are the funniest pets/people you know? My boyfriend. My uncle and aunt. My boyfriend’s coworker.

    1. Mood: Perky, which is completely unlike me, but with my power restored and the weather so nice, it’s hard not to be happy!

    2. Your favorite foundation and why?: When I’m going out, MUFE DuoMat foundation because it’s so quick and easy to apply and it doesn’t make me look all caked up! On a normal day, Almay’s Smart Shade foundation… sheer and quick to apply (efficiency is quite important to me!)

    3. How do you feel about Mary Jane shoes?: They remind me of my Catholic school days… I’m not against them, but I’m definitely with you, I prefer the grownup version!

    2. Your favorite foundation and why? I like a tinted moisturizer rather than a foundation. I have pretty good skin, thank you genetics!, and prefer just sheer coverage.
    3. How do you feel about Mary Jane shoes? They have to be black patent leather, they have to have a non-chunky heel, and they can’t be worn with socks, but if they have all of those, then yes!
    4. Three words that would describe you in seventh grade: Smart, shy, and skinny!
    5. What are you wearing on your lips today? A Yes to Carrots tinted lip balm, I don’t remember which one, but I really like it!

    7. Makeup or your sense of smell? Make up, hands down! I have a good friend who has no sense of smell, and it’s always sad. Not being able to smell bread baking, or my husband, or my children, it makes me sad.
    8. Who are the funniest pets/people you know? My husband! His sense of humor is what drew me to him in the first place! And my two daughters are hysterical! Runs in the family!

    4. Three words that would describe you in seventh grade: poser, annoying, hand-me-downs.

    7. Makeup or your sense of smell? Aww…umm…I’d give up makeup, though either would be sad to give up.

    1. Mood:
    Good. Until about an hour ago I felt like today was just going to be a drag. But, I’ve decided to drink my water and have my blueberries and figure this really hard problem out!
    2. Your favorite foundation and why? Recently it has been Lancome Teint Miracle. Good coverage, while not blocking out my freckles. Though i’ve stopped wearing foundation because I got a tad too dark(I cannot believe my white as white skin got a bit of pigment this summer.. surprising!)
    3. How do you feel about Mary Jane shoes? I like them. Watch that they don’t get too 5th grade, but for a classic ladylike look in a bright colour(I want red!), they are unstoppable.
    4. Three words that would describe you in seventh grade: oh I would normally say awkward.. but my friends reminded me this weekend that back then I was a heartbreaker and had a bunch of guys chasing after me? I don’t remember it quite like that.. Guess thats when I peaked!

    6. What’s the last musical, opera or play you’ve seen? Oh, I’m really not sure! I saw The Nutcracker ballet last christmas, does that count? Otherwise its just live music like the symphony or concerts for me.. Wish I could go to musicals/plays, but haven’t found anyone to really drag :), and the boy refuses to go to Cirque Du Soleil.. I’m guessing he’s not going to be up for Wicked. *cackles*
    7. Makeup or your sense of smell? Makeup. I love smelling, and I associate a lot of things with smell. Its my strongest memory trigger, and really can sway how I’m feeling. I could go without makeup(but I’d have to do the same thing Karen — Go and get my skin hot damn clear, and probably get my eyelashes tinted. And lip balm isn’t makeup, right?!)
    8. Who are the funniest pets/people you know? My dad is probably the funniest person that I know. Also, my good friend Nikki cracks me up like no other. Funniest pet? My boy’s cat. Holy cow is he hilarious. My dog is pretty funny too in his OCD personality(he’s a border collie.. he needs to herd. organize. and direct.).
    9. How do you like your grilled cheese sandwiches? Classic! No ketchup, but the sandwich MUST be accompained by 2+ dill pickles, perferably the ones I make with my mom. Also, that cheese MUST be melted, and I can’t eat the sandwich if the cheese has started to solidfy again.
    10. Weekly goals: Enjoy the week, go see some friends, and catch a movie. Also clean my makeup brushes!

    8. Who are the funniest pets/people you know? Probably Anthony, he has ADD so he can’t always focus but when he loses his focus it’s great since he bounces around like a little kid. Probably my kitten Lily too, she chirps and follows me from room to room.

    9. How do you like your grilled cheese sandwiches? Preferably from Melt but if I have to make them at home they HAVE to have a “Paula Deen of Butter” on each slice of bread and then a good melty cheese.

    10. Weekly goals: Find a parking space at University, not walk into the wrong classroom again (first time ever today, so mortifying.), laundry.

    8. Who are the funniest pets/people you know? My cat Angel is pretty funny. Like a typical cat, she will love you when she wants something, but ignores you when she doesn’t want anything from you.

    9. How do you like your grilled cheese sandwiches? I like to use good old butter to grill and jalapeno harvati cheese the most. Sometimes I would also mix in different cheeses, such as mozzarella, asiago, provolene and parmesan cheeses. The cheesy the better for me!

    10. Weekly goals: trying to stay positive about my jobless situation, it is hard out there.

  41. Christy says:

    1. Mood: Happy but exhausted. Just got back from Vegas on a super late flight.
    2. Your favorite foundation and why? MAC Select Liquid, good moderate coverage for winter, but can be lightened up readily. When I’m rushed MAC Studio Fix, it just does the job in 15 seconds with a buffer brush. However, at the moment I’ve been using MAC Studio Moisture Tint since it is dual purpose and very light for the summer.
    3. How do you feel about Mary Jane shoes? They’re ok, although I don’t have a pair at the moment.
    4. Three words that would describe you in seventh grade: shy, chubby, sensitive
    5. What are you wearing on your lips today? Korres Jasmine Lip Butter. I’ve been lazing around at home napping and putting things away. I have yet to venture out!
    6. What’s the last musical, opera or play you’ve seen? Les Miserables in Las Vegas 3 years ago with my honey.
    7. Makeup or your sense of smell? Probably makeup since I love to smell wine, food, flowers, etc.
    8. Who are the funniest pets/people you know? My dog was pretty funny. He knew I loved to dress him up, so he’d run away in terror when I’d put him in a Santa costume. Then he’d wear it and show off.
    9. How do you like your grilled cheese sandwiches? I’m not a huge fan of them to be honest. I find too much cheese upsets my stomach. If I’d do one I’d probably use a little bit of mozzarella and fontina cheese on rye bread with tomatoes and spinach. I like to balance it with some veggies.
    10. Weekly goals: Work off the Bellagio buffet and too much drinky drink from my Vegas weekend. ;)

    1. Content
    2. My favorite foundation is Chanel Mat Lumiere. It is the first foundation I ever tried and I have stuck with it. It works for my pale skin (I wear ivory) and it looks good all day.
    3. As long as I don’t look like a 7 year old, I could wear them.
    4. Unfashionable, short, awkward.
    5. Chanel lipgloss in Blizzard.
    6. I saw Jersey Boys and I feel in love with Frankie Valli’s music.
    7. Baking wouldn’t be nearly as fun if I couldn’t smell.
    8. I don’t have any pets (my family is allergic to dogs and cats), but my brother in law’s family have two chiwawas that have no memory and bark everything people leave and enter a room.
    9. With Dijon mustard and good cheese
    10. Get through the work week.

  43. Ashley says:

    1. Mood: Overwhelmed & stressed. I’m moving into my new place in two days. Lots of stuff to get together before then.

    2. Your favorite foundation and why? Since it’s very warm out and summer heat is slow to fade, I’m still using mineral makeup because it’s so light. I love Airbrush Canvas with SPF 15 by Philosophy. Sometimes I switch to a tinted moisturizer by Origins called Vita Zing.

    3. How do you feel about Mary Jane shoes? I’m a short gal with a young face, so I already come across as being really “cutesy.” I think if I added Mary Janes, I’d look like a caricature of myself :(

    4. Three words that would describe you in seventh grade: confused, sheltered, inquiring.

    5. What are you wearing on your lips today? A Sephora lipgloss called “Precious Pink.”

    6. What’s the last musical, opera or play you’ve seen? Oh man, I can’t even remember. I think it must’ve been almost a year ago when I went to the a small theatre to see a new musical in Boston. Cannot for the life of me remember what it’s called. Now everyone knows how uncultured I am.

    7. Makeup or your sense of smell? I’d give up makeup. I love makeup A LOT, but at the same time, I’m not one of those gals who squirms when she has to go without it. Lately, I’ve been trying to focus more time/money/effort on skincare so that I can wear less makeup. Plus I love food and perfumes, and couldn’t go without smelling those wonderful things.

    8. Who are the funniest pets/people you know? My brothers are both really funny, but in entirely different ways. One of them is very serious and deadpan mixed with a lot of frat boy humor, and then the other is very goofy and silly. My dog is pretty funny when he rejects my cuddles. He’d rather get 20 hours of sleep per day.

    9. How do you like your grilled cheese sandwiches? I never crave them, but if I have one it’s either the classic diner way (with american cheese, white bread, etc) or the more ‘foodie’ way (a crusty baguette & a softer/tangier cheese with herbs..snob alert). I really dislike it when tomato gets all up in there.

    10. Weekly goals: Succesfully move into my new apartment and get all my loose ends tied by Sunday, so that I be ready for Monday! Also, I need to revise my resume.

  44. Jessica Leigh says:

    1. Mood: Better. I am trying to get myself together mentally and physically for the busy week ahead.

    2. Your favorite foundation and why?
    I can’t choose just one! I love Chanel Mat Lumiere and Nars Sheer Matte.

    3. How do you feel about Mary Jane shoes?
    I like them as long as the outfit they are paired with is not to school girl-ish – a la Britney Spears.

    4. Three words that would describe you in seventh grade:
    Awkward, blossoming and a dreamer.

    5. What are you wearing on your lips today?
    Nars Roman Holiday.

    6. What’s the last musical, opera or play you’ve seen?
    Probably the nutcracker some years ago.

    7. Makeup or your sense of smell?
    This really shouldn’t be this hard :) I will go with giving up makeup … reluctantly.

    8. Who are the funniest pets/people you know?
    I think that all of my friends and family are funny in their own ways. I would hate to be surrounded by serious people!

    9. How do you like your grilled cheese sandwiches?
    Gooey, buttery and lightly browned. It better not be burned!

    10. Weekly goals:
    Be proud of myself and my accomplishments; try to get someone else out there to see those accomplishments and want to hire me :)

    6. What’s the last musical, opera or play you’ve seen?Went to see Evita with my mum. Now that I am a mum myself, I treasure these little moments even more

    7. Makeup or your sense of smell? I would definitely give up all my make up. I can’t even begin to imagine to never again smell the scent of cookies in my kitchen when I am baking, my husband wearing just a hint of perfume, the lavender when we’re vacationing in the South of France, my favorite perfume and so on… And I would forego all make-up and skin care just to keep on smelling my little baby boy (just not when he fills his nappie…)
