Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Feb. 15

Published in: Just For Fun

  1. Mood:
  2. Blooming chipper!

  3. How do you feel about drugstore makeup?
  4. I think some of it’s fantastic, but it takes patience to sift through all of the not-so-great stuff to get to the gems. Once you find ‘em, though, it feels like you’ve found buried treasure!

  5. Camo print: yay or nay?
  6. If you’re in the service, YAY! If you’re buying bananas at Safeway, then only in measured doses — maybe a pair of shorts, tennies or a t-shirt.

  7. What’s one makeup challenge you’d like to master?
  8. I’d like to get better at applying bright teal and green eyeshadows. They’re not colors I’d wear outside of the house that often, but you never know…

  9. Eyes/lips/cheeks:
  10. Nothing yet except MAC Naked Honey Salve on my lips. I’m thinking of doing something with one of the Spring Colour Forecast quads.

  11. Do you have any scars?
  12. A few small ones. One is a burn on my left wrist from a cooking accident 10 years ago. It’s shaped like a dolphin. :)

  13. Sweet or savory foods?
  14. On most days, sweet, but when Aunt Flo visits, savory.

  15. Do you have any hidden talents?
  16. I can pinch with my toes, HARD.

  17. Outfit:
  18. Tow up from the flo’ up in brown shorts, a green t-shirt and black zip-up hoodie (I’m still in jammies).

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. Just to keep a good attitude about freelancing, try to watch what I eat, exercise daily, get to bed before midnight, and generally try to take better care of myself than I did last week.

Good morning, ladies (well, early afternoon for some of you). :) How did you sleep? I slept fine until Tabs decided it was time to play. It was just before dawn, and I think he sensed I wanted to sleep in, so he leapt on my chest (ouch!) as if to say, “Nope. Not gonna happen.”



Mmm… I’ve been on a green tea kick lately. Do you like it? Sometimes I prefer coffee, but it kinda messes with my nerves after a while.

So what are you up to today (Happy Presidents Day)? Let me know how you’re doing. Just copy this list, and paste it with your answers in the comments.

      Smokey eyes are a challenge! Have you ever tried layering a powder shadow over a black, smudgy kohl? That’s the easiest and fastest way I know how to rock le smokey eye.

    1. Mood: As good as can be for Monday…but I had a pretty good weekend!
    2. How do you feel about drugstore makeup? I wear some drugstore make-up (mainly mascara and eyeshadow). The trick to finding the good stuff is to visit makeupalley.com and see what most people like best – that helps to weed out the crap.

    Le list

    1. Mood: still nauseous since yesterday–ugh. Must have a bug.

    2. How do you feel about drugstore makeup? Some are as good as the high end stuff, when you can find them! Avon comes to mind–though not a drugstore brand, there are many products that are a great value. Their eyeshadow quads are fantastic, and their Anew line of skincare is really, really good.

    3. Camo print: yay or nay? Nay

    4. What’s one makeup challenge you’d like to master? Making my face look flawless and beautifully highlighted.

    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks: nada today–working from home so I don’t have to see anyone.

    6. Do you have any scars? Several–dog bite scars in my eyebrow and cheek from being bitten by a dog when I was 4. A big scar on my thumb from a kitchen knife mishap, and a scar on my knee from falling on a nail when I was kid.

    7. Sweet or savory foods? both, depends on my mood. Mostly, savory.

    8. Do you have any hidden talents? can’t think of any

    9. Outfit: black workout pants & coral pink fleece top, running shoes.

    10. Weekly goals: try to exercise daily, watch what I eat (that is, once I feel like eating again!), and organize my desktop files.

  23. Sonja says:

    1. Mood: suffocating- I’m redecorating my room so I have to move everything out- and that’s 500 books=dust.

    2. How do you feel about drugstore makeup? I like L’oreal but others-not so sure. I don’t buy a whole lot of makeup so I’d rather save up for something more expensive- it is the thing I put on my face.

    3. Camo print: yay or nay? Big nay- as Tali said- I’ve seen all too much of that growing up and I really don’t want to anymore.

    4. What’s one makeup challenge you’d like to master? Haha, I want to grow old so I can wear a red lipstick, looks terrible on me now, in my 20s

    6. Do you have any scars? I’m the clumsiest person in the world so, yes, quite a few. But I love them all- my fav is the one on my knee I got when I flew with the bike in the sea.

    7. Sweet or savory foods? Both I guess.

    8. Do you have any hidden talents? I can draw ok…never do, but then once in a while I start and then can’t stop all day…and then nothing for months. Weird.

    9. Outfit: Black skinnies, converse, black sweater turquoise/blackish
    .

  31. Katie & Zena says:

    1. Mood:
    Soooooooooo tired. I woke up at quarter to 4 (AM) with a migraine and then my mom woke me up at 11:30 when I don’t have class until 1. My brain feels fuzzy.

    2. How do you feel about drugstore makeup?
    Great for trying out trends or you’re just starting out and there are a lot of good ones, but sometimes I feel there’s a lot of crap. I do use a lot of drugstore make-up. I, personally, don’t think 14, 15, and 16 year olds should have MAC or Chanel make-up; they’re a little young. I’m 21 and I’m just starting to venture out into non-drugstore make-up like Urban Decay, Smashbox, Stila, etc.

    3. Camo print: yay or nay?
    NAY. Remember, I had to live around camo print for eleven years. I’ve seen enough camo to last a lifetime. Again, I think camo should be restricted to the military as they use it for it’s REAL purpose, not civilians. Civilians do not wear camo with the right amount of pride.

    4. What’s one makeup challenge you’d like to master?
    Eyeliner, particularly cat eyes.

    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks:
    Snatch & Smog on eyes with black eyeliner, Posietint for Cheeks, Revlon’s new lip line in Carnation (the lipstick)

    6. Do you have any scars?
    Yep. I have about eight or nine and then there are stretch marks on my legs. Two alone are on my face. My biggest one is on my left hip.

    8. Do you have any hidden talents?
    I can recite whole movies in terms of dialogue and what’s happening. If I don’t know a dialogue while watching a movie without sound, I’ll make up the entire dialogue in my head based on what’s happening. The endodontist thought my mom was joking when she said I watch whole movies sans sound and I prefer watching them backwards.

    9. Outfit:
    Dark denim jeans, boots, new shirt from K.L. Pigment’s shop (white romance is the name of the shirt), watch, green beaded bracelet that was my aunt’s mother-in-law’s, my great grandma’s amethyst ring, green and turqouise mother-of-pearl earrings and ChG’s Something Sweet nail varnish on toes and tips!

    10. Weekly goals:
    Watch the Oooooohlympics (particularly the figure skating), do my interviews for Cultural Anthropology (I need one more informant but don’t know who). Get History of Non-Western Civ notes from last week from somebody! Get Zena’s toenails trimmed. Get new BHG.

    Go Team USA!!!!

    P.S. Did you see the first pair (they were from China) from the Pairs Figure Skating Short Program yesterday??? I was left completely speechless; it was so beautiful. The US pair programs stunk!

  32. Christy says:

    1. Mood: content. Still fighting off a bit of a cold that got a little bad yesterday since I was out in the rain on Saturday.
    2. How do you feel about drugstore makeup? Hit & miss. Some Revlon, Maybelline and Gosh are I tend to aim for the higher end of drugstore makeup, so at that price I may as well go get something I love at MAC for a little more.
    3. Camo print: yay or nay? Nay. Just not my idea of cute.
    4. What’s one makeup challenge you’d like to master? Winging out liquid liner. I can never get it the same on both sides.

    2. How do you feel about drugstore makeup? I guess it kinda depends on the makeup, I know there’s some really good and bad out there, you just have to search for the goodies :)

    3. Camo print: yay or nay? Uh….nay. Camo print should stay in the army.

    4. What’s one makeup challenge you’d like to master? I can’t seem to find a way to make my skin look 100% flawless. Either I don’t put enough makeup on and you can see my zits and redness or I put on too much and it looks gross and cakey. I’d like to find a happy medium so I can look as good as possible.

    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks: Nothing today. I’m just staying on the couch today, I need to relax so I get better.

    6. Do you have any scars? Yeah, I have one on my right arm on the inside near my elbow. This girl was poking me (yeah, she was REALLY annoying, LOL!) and her pinky scraped my arm! It left a half inch raised line…yeah let’s say we’re not friends now :) I also have this weird circle scar on my right foot, a guy stepped on my foot while I was wearing flats and it scraped some of my skin in a circle…Ik weird right?

    7. Sweet or savory foods? Mainly sweet (I love me some chocolate!) but I LOVE doritos!

  38. Marmar says:

    I LOVE green tea. I have to admit though, I love the powdered matcha type w/o sweetner. Very difficult to find in my area though.. No matter what, I still have to have my iced coffees lol

    1. Mood:
    Chipper~ DAY OFF.

    2. How do you feel about drugstore makeup?
    On the fence. My personal experiences have been less than perfect with Covergirl, NYC, etc and generally speaking, the prices aren’t as cheap as they really should be for “low cost” products (Covergirl mascara runs as high as $8.99-12.99 here while for about the same price, I can easily grab something from MAC.) I do however really like some Japanese drugstore brands like “canmake” (really high quality, inexpensive brand!) as well as some of the “higher” end drugstore brands, ie “Hard Candy,” “Sonia Kashuk.”

    3. Camo print: yay or nay?
    Yay in small doses!

    4. What’s one makeup challenge you’d like to master?
    Smokey eyes/eye liner. I suck so bad at this. I’m GREAT when it comes to neutrals, pink tones, tanned/bronzed looks, etc but not so good with eye liner/smokey looks.

    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks:
    canmake eye lash serum, Lancome Color Design lipstick in “groupie,” Lancome Blush Subtil in “Cedar Rose.” Love Lancome’s new line <3

    6. Do you have any scars?
    Yeah.. stupid little "beauty mark" shaped scar over my right eye from when I hit myself in the face with a hot glue gun in Jr high ;___;

    7. Sweet or savory foods?
    Savory. I don't like sweet things at all. I drink my coffee practically black & I'll only eat dark, dark chocolate LOL

    8. Do you have any hidden talents?
    I can illustrate quite well as I come from an art background but don't do it often.

    9. Outfit:
    Boxer shorts, striped long sleeve tee

    10. Weekly goals:
    Try to get to bed before 2 am ;_____; I keep going to bed super late & still having to haul my ass outta bed early for work!
    .-= Marmar's last blog post… polarisu: @CJMarsicano ROFL!!! This is why I flee from McDonalds/fast food.. it’s so, so bad for you. (I can always tell by how my stomach reacts!) =-.

  39. lo says:

    1. Mood: Tired, but motivated… my friend is coming to town Thursday, so I have lots of stuff to do!

    2. How do you feel about drugstore makeup? My mascara and lip glosses are almost all drugstore, just because I use them all the time.

    3. Camo print: yay or nay? Unless you’re a soldier or a hunter, I’m not a fan.

    4. What’s one makeup challenge you’d like to master? False eyelashes! Not even so much learning how to use them, but having actual reasons to learn how to use them haha.

    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks: Just Lash Blast lengthening mascara.

    6. Do you have any scars? I have tons of scars haha. One good one is in the middle of my forehead where I ran into a wall as a child.

  40. Catherine says:

    1. Mood: A little anxious and irritated. My left shoulder and left lower back decided to flip out on me after sleeping on three different beds in three nights (I had grad school interviews in SF Thursday & Friday and then SO and I stayed Saturday night for Valentine’s Day and we got home Sunday night) which I know is going to make this week even more painful than it already has to be lol.

    2. How do you feel about drugstore makeup? Same as you – there are some gems out there but they take patience to find.

    3. Camo print: yay or nay? Yay! But only the worn-in distressed kind in small doses. I used to have this camo jacket I wore everywhere that a friend found at Goodwill. It was awesome.

    4. What’s one makeup challenge you’d like to master? Top liner. My lids are so uneven…

    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks: Well, currently I still have Lush Angels on Bare Skin on my face which I’m about to wash off once I finish this survey lol. Thinking about using my new Shu Uemura P Wine 25 blush I got in SF or the NARS Torrid blush I got in swap when I got home…

    6. Do you have any scars? Yup, mostly acne scars, chicken pox scars and then a few stretch marks from puberty.

    7. Sweet or savory foods? SWEET!

    8. Do you have any hidden talents? Err… I’m not sure this is hidden but I can type faster than most people can read? And OMG – my SO can do that toe thing too! It hurts ;_;

    9. Outfit: VS Bite Me cheeky undies! Soon to be a skirt, tank top and cardigan.

    10. Weekly goals: Not die. I have meetings and class all day Tuesday (like literally from 11am to 9:30pm), I wanted to volunteer all day for Enspire (we show middle schoolers about engineering) on Wednesday, but I also have a poli sci paper I haven’t started the reading for yet due at midnight, I have bioseparations homework due Thursday as well as orientation for volunteering for the AAAS and more volunteering Friday and throughout the weekend. So… not dying is my goal lol.
    .-= Catherine’s last blog post… Happy Valentine’s Day & Chinese New Year! =-.

  41. DonnaN says:

    1. Mood: Wore out–was back at the hospital today for more pre-op testing. Since I wan’t allowed to eat very much yesterday, Hubster to me to post-Valentines lunch after I was done. Yes, it was Cheesburger in Paradise, but it was romantic none the less….we held hands at the table!

    2. How do you feel about drugstore makeup? I have really only had luck with CG mascara….I prefer the Sephora-level stuff……OMG, I’m a MAKEUP-Snob!!

    3. Camo print: yay or nay? Little pops of it are ok (I love the idea of sneakers—must look for them!!), but if you’re going to wear it head to toe, you better be in the military.

    4. What’s one makeup challenge you’d like to master? False Lashes….that’s a goal for 2010!

    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks: Wasn’t allowed to wear any…..but I did apply my CG LashBlastLength and MAC-Resort Life lipgelee after I was done. I didn’t want to walk out of there looking like I’d just woken up

    6. Do you have any scars? SIX! Two on my face, but my mom had the forthought to have a plastic surgeon to the sew-ups–one looks like a dimple when I smile (I tripped over a tree root at 2, and punctured my cheek on the corner of my Fisher-Price Peoples playhouse—my mom and grandmother complained to the company, and I had FREE Fisher-Price toys for the next few years…..guess they were afraid of a lawsuit) and the other is right along my lip line (caused by a flying seatbelt that was swung at my face when playing in the backseat of a neighbors car….I was 5). The others are on my right wrist (shattered a glass lamp shade when dancing around in my parent’s den when I was 9), my right inner thigh (puctured when I fell climing a tree when I was 7. A left knee scar when I fell down a flight of stairs into a glass console table at my front door (1999) and a punture scar on my right shin, were I ran into the corner of my coffee table (2004). I have issues with being QUITE accident-prone!
