Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, July 25

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. 178. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
  1. Mood:
  2. Not too shabby, tabby. I had a nice, relaxing weekend and slept well last night. Can’t ask for much more than that. :)

  3. I would like to start…
  4. …lifting weights again. I miss having upper body strength. I got out of the habit of resistance training a few years ago and have gotten progressively weaker ever since. I miss being able to change those big 5-gallon bottles of water myself and not having to ask El Hubs to open jars for me. Shoot, I remember being able to do a few pull-ups. Now I probably couldn’t even do one.

  5. What’s one thing people may not know about you?
  6. If it weren’t for braces, I’d have a gap between my two front teeth, like Lauren Hutton, who I think probably wears the look better than I did.

  7. Biggest vice?
  8. Trashy reality TV, for sure. I try not to think about all of the time I’ve wasted watching rich housewives act like fools on Bravo. Well, “wasted” may be too harsh a word. Watching reality TV is one of my favorite ways to unwind.

  9. One of your most regrettable beauty decisions?
  10. The dark purple lip liner and frosty beige lipstick look I wore for a while in the mid-’90s. I was woefully wrong, but I thought it looked fab with my short haircut (remember Dharma & Greg). Not one of my better beauty phases, let me tell ya.

  11. Three things you almost always have in your purse?
  12. At least one tube of lipgloss, a small pair of tweezers (damn those spontaneous chin hairs!) and my froyo frequent buyer card for Tuttimelon (buy eight and get the ninth one free!).

  13. Which of your features do you like best?
  14. I don’t know if it’s commonly considered a feature, but I like my hair most of the time. Right now it’s overdue for a cut and color, so it looks a little bit like a dime-store clown wig, but that’s what ponytails are for, right? :) I finally made an appointment with my stylist, and when I did I think I heard my roots sigh with relief.

  15. When did you first start wearing mascara?
  16. Hmm…it was either high school senior year or my first year in college, and I’m pretty sure it was something for natural-looking lashes by Clinique, which is ironic now considering my current lash mantra, “go drag or go home.”

  17. Have you ever been in a beauty pageant?
  18. No, I never have, but I loved watching the Miss America Pageant on TV when I was a kid.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. To go through the pile of mail I’ve been ignoring and to finish everything I want to get done this week (preferably with a smile). :)

Ya know, I’m consistently blown away by the talent out there in the MBB pet community, like the kitty, puppy and snake (!) models featured here posing with their tubes of MAC Evolution Revolution Lipglass. Now THAT’s the way the pros do it. Bravo!

Here’s Tigger, Instant Karma’s striped sweetheart, appearing to nap oh-so nonchalantly with his tube of EvRev…


Here’s Gia, Annessa’s puppy pal, showing off a pair of pretty brown eyes…


Samantha‘s kitty Cleo has this sultry look down pat…


And Iris’ baby boy CJ is a HUGE EvRev fan…

If you catch your cat (or dog/hamster/ferret/turtle/tiger or other furry friend) modeling with your tube of EvRev, send me a pic by e-mail to karen at makeupandbeautyblog dot com, or via Facebook or Twitter. They just might appear in a future MBB pet modeling job. :)

Now, are you ready to get down with this week’s Monday Poll?

    That snake picture is awesome! I enjoy snakes. :)

    1. Mood: Anticipatory! I swapped for two serious nail polish lemmings this week, and they will arrive today!
    2. I would like to start…running again. Slowly. So I don’t hurt my knees any more than they already are. But I’d like to start the habit again.
    3. What’s one thing people may not know about you? That I like snakes! Spiders can all die horrible painful deaths, but I’ll pick up a snake with no qualms.
    4. Biggest vice? Cherry Coke Zero. I swear…I can’t quit.
    5. One of your most regrettable beauty decisions? HA. Well, when I was in 6th grade, a) Kerri Strug became a household name when she pulled that Olympic vault out of an injured ankle, and b) I was the new kid in class. I decided I wanted my hair cut like Kerri’s (which, looking back, is still cute), but I didn’t have a picture. I didn’t know the magic words “pixie cut,” and so the stylist cut my hair into a stacked bowl cut. And curled all the ends under. Gaining me the unfortunate nickname of “Mushy the Mushroom.” Because my head bore definite resemblance to a toadstool.
    6. Three things you almost always have in your purse? A small can of Elnett Satin (my hair soaks up product like crazy), a pair of Bose earbuds, and a small favor from my friend Cory’s wedding that says “Stay positive and love your life.”
    7. Which of your features do you like best? My nose. My lips. I have beestung, berry lips. But outside of face? My feet. I have adorable feet and monkey toes.
    8. When did you first start wearing mascara? College, I think. I probably didn’t start wearing it well until after graduation. :)
    9. Have you ever been in a beauty pageant? Nope…but I always liked the crowns.
    10. Weekly goals: Start that running. Make a few batches of granola…spend half an hour reading every day. Man, it’s hard to read with a toddler around!

  8. 1. Mood:
    Not too bad. I’ve had a good rest last night after almost a week of insomnia, and had some shopping done with my family earlier so it’s all good :)

    2. I would like to start…
    … learning how to dance (Maybe shuffling first, since you can do it solo!), writing more, exercise more.

    3. What’s one thing people may not know about you?
    That I absolutely love reading :P Not everyone knows this about me except my family and those really close to me, really.

    4. Biggest vice?
    That would be book stores. I could spend a whole day in them, and I could buy a LOT of books (That catch my eye) if I didn’t control myself. The same can be said of makeup/skincare stores (e.g. Sephora) now, though, but not as bad haha!

    5. One of your most regrettable beauty decisions?
    Cutting my hair really really really short. It was a mistake by the hairstylist (Never went back) and it made me look like a boy for the longest time ever. And it gave me self-esteem issues about my hair for a period of time.

    6. Three things you almost always have in your purse?
    Wallet, lip balm, tissues.

    7. Which of your features do you like best?
    I like my eyes actually :) They’re not typical Chinese ones, nor are they European… it’s kind of hard to describe them but they’re my favourite features.

    8. When did you first start wearing mascara?
    Believe it or not, I’ve only seriously started wearing them this year!

    9. Have you ever been in a beauty pageant?
    I’ve joined the Estee Lauder Model Search here in Malaysia in 2009. Didn’t get chosen at all, but I didn’t plan to anyway- I was mainly interested in the free makeover and the subsequent A4-sized photographed (With a frame) I could take back home :)

    10. Weekly goals:
    I’m mainly spending this week trying to settle any pending errands I might have before Mum leaves for her holiday this Friday, and in the meantime try to get as much rest as I can!

  9. gio says:

  10. Christina says:

    1. Mood: Happily nourished from breakfast and decaf coffee :) But a little nervous for my AIDS, Science, and Society final this Saturday! College summer school goes by insanely fast! (Up next is Metabolic Biochemistry XD)

    2. I would like to start… getting back into shape, most definitely! I tip off my hats to people who stay fit during college because I always feel overwhelmed with schoolwork and can barely find time to get a proper amount of sleep! I’m slowly working my way back into shape (and into my cuter summer clothes!)

    3. What’s one thing people may not know about you? I have mad choreography skills! I took tap, jazz, ballet, hip hop, and baile folklorico for a combined amount of 9 years (only took baile folklorico for 2 years). I may be awkward trying to sway to the music on the dance floor on my own, but I can bust out choreographed moves like no one’s business. I personally enjoy Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance choreography.

    4. Biggest vice? YouTube surfing when I know I should be doing schoolwork…

    5. One of your most regrettable beauty decisions? This horrible highlight job that was done on my hair my freshman year of high school… It was way too drastic for a first time hair change and the bleach dried out my hair SO BADLY that I had to grow out my hair to cut it all off XP

    6. Three things you almost always have in your purse? Lip gloss, Eyebrow Threading Customer card (working my way to a free threading!), and cell phone with a Tokidoki charm :)

    7. Which of your features do you like best? My smile, mainly because I have dimples like my mom and my aunt :)

    8. When did you first start wearing mascara? Honestly, I barely wear it even now and I’m about to be a senior in college! But technically I’ve worn it for a while because when I would have dance performances as a kid, we’d have to wear heavy make-up so the audience could see our faces better.

    9. Have you ever been in a beauty pageant? No, but I did get an invitation to be in one. I’m not one for the beauty pageant scene.

    10. Weekly goals: Study like crraaaaaazzzzzzzyyyyy for my final this Saturday. I love the class I’m taking because it’s so interesting but the amount of reading makes my head spin and I’m starting to think the sponge-like quality of my brain in regards to retaining information is being worn out XD But I will fight through it!

  11. Melissa says:

    1. Mood: Energetic
    2. I would like to start…seeing the scale needle move in a downward direction. I’ve been working out 4-5 times/week for almost 8 months now and I’ve gained 5 lbs. Ugh! Where is the payoff damnit? I eat the same as I have for years, now I’ve added all this exercise and nothing.
    3. What’s one thing people may not know about you? I got Carson Daly to let my friends and I come up to the studio for TRL with what we wrote on our poster :-)
    4. Biggest vice? If you ask my husband, makeup.
    5. One of your most regrettable beauty decisions? Tanning beds. I’m Nicole Kidman white and tanning led me to grow an abnormal skin patch of pre-cancerous cells on my leg which I had to have surgically removed. Yikes! I’m white and proud now – sporting sunscreen year-round!
    6. Three things you almost always have in your purse? Excluding makeup type stuff – My goody bag (aka pencil case with Tampax, pantyliners, Tums, etc – I’m always prepared); dental floss, and tissues (damn allergies!)
    7. Which of your features do you like best? My nailbeds. I always think my nails look pretty.
    8. When did you first start wearing mascara? Hmmm don’t remember??
    9. Have you ever been in a beauty pageant? No. But I’ve put on the talent portion of a pagent for my family all the time when I was young. I always made up little choregraphed dances. But my mom was too broke to pay for dance lessons. I’m 34 now and I take ballet twice a week – because I can afford it :-)
    10. Weekly goals: Eat more veggies, drink more water, catch up on work (for my peace of mind), & get to sleep earlier! (<might be affecting my weight?)
    Have a great week everybody!

    3. What’s one thing people may not know about you? I’m a big marching band nerd. All four years in HS, plus my freshman year in college!
    4. Biggest vice? soda.
    5. One of your most regrettable beauty decisions? My hair, freshman/sophomore year of HS. I used to try blowdrying it straight, but I have so much hair that it just ended up…. pyramid-shaped and huge. WHY didn’t anyone ever tell me about the concept of thinning my hair out? Or hand me a flat iron?
    6. Three things you almost always have in your purse? knitting, multiple lip balms, lotion
    7. Which of your features do you like best? my smile (even though it is uneven). It took MANY MANY years of orthodontia, etc to get it though. I didn’t start smiling in photos until I was like, 23 due to all my dental work.
    8. When did you first start wearing mascara? Hmm. Probably 7th grade or so.
    9. Have you ever been in a beauty pageant? Oh god. That’s like, such a nightmare to me.

    4. Biggest vice? Procrastination. I’ll tell you about it later. ;)

    5. One of your most regrettable beauty decisions? I used to put my hair up into spikes in high school. With elmer’s glue. Not pretty. And I mean, these were tall spikes. Like 6 inches at least.

    6. Three things you almost always have in your purse? Nail clippers, stereo faceplate for my car, cell phone.

    7. Which of your features do you like best? My feet. They’re super adorable.

    8. When did you first start wearing mascara? At least 7th grade. I remember people would ask me if I was wearing fake eyelashes all the time.

    10. Weekly goals: Smile some more.

    1. Mood: Alright. Just lazing about today before my crazy busy week starts tomorrow.

    2. I would like to start…going to the gym again! I love it and usually do well at going regularly but this past month I’ve been so busy I haven’t been.

    3. What’s one thing people may not know about you? Hmmmm. I’m pretty much an open book so I’m not really hiding any big secrets that I can think of :-)

    4. Biggest vice? In the summer, ice cream :-/ I kinda like shopping a bit too much too lol

    5. One of your most regrettable beauty decisions? When I tried to dye my naturally dirty blonde hair to black in 8th grade. It was awful. It clashed with my complexion, and to boot I didn’t read the box and got a kind that was more meant for covering grays so my hair was this disgusting blackishpurpleishashy color. Thank God it was only semipermanent!

    6. Three things you almost always have in your purse? Blotting powder, concealer, a pair of tweezers.

    7. Which of your features do you like best? My eyes I think. I like my skintone during the summer, I tan pretty easily.

    8. When did you first start wearing mascara? I think late college, but only became a really hardcore mascara fan when I was like 23ish and had a grown-up job.

    9. Have you ever been in a beauty pageant? No. They kind of weird me out.

    10. Weekly goals: Rest up today so I can tackle this week- my church is doing a lot of volunteer work fixing up various buildings in my community this week, and I’m supervising our youth. I’ma need lots of caffeine and patience lol.

      @Shannon, Good luck on the GREs! I just took them two days ago. My only tip is to not stare at the timeclock but just work at the fastest pace you can. The timeclock made me so nervous I couldn’t read. DON’T doublecheck your math unless you absolutely have to. Other than that, I bet you will do great :)

    7. Which of your features do you like best? I don’t really have a favorite, but I’ve been playing up my lips a lot lately.

    2. I would like to start…doing yoga more regularly! I did it pretty frequently at the start of the summer but then I just sort of fizzled out. I need to get back to it…maybe there’ll be a class or something at my college when I go back.

    3. What’s one thing people may not know about you? Hm…I…don’t have any birthmarks? I used to, but they faded. This is a little boring.

  39. Chris25 says:

    1. Mood: Good. I just got back from seeing Harry Potter Pt 2. with my lil bro (he’s 21). We ate bad mall food and chatted for 2 hours. I hardly see him since I moved out of the Bronx.

    2. I would like to start…feeling better about life and try to pick myself up when bad things happen to me.

    3. What’s one thing people may not know about you?: I wanted to be a rock star so badly when I was in HS. I even wrote song lyrics and came up with names for my future band. Couldn’t carry a tune to save my life.

    4. Biggest vice?: Overeating. I tend to eat when I am stressed, unhappy or bored.

    5. One of your most regrettable beauty decisions?: I have this tuft of eyebrow hair that grows separately. When I was 13, I made the dumb decision to connect the tuft to the rest of my brow. I looked like an effing Vulcan.

    6. Three things you almost always have in your purse?: Lipstick, wallet and cell phone.

    7. Which of your features do you like best?: My eyes. I have really pretty brown eyes. :)

    8. When did you first start wearing mascara?: I tried it when I was 12, but my dad found out and banned me from wearing it. Ten years later, I was in beauty school and the instructor taught me to use mascara. I’ve been loving it and wearing it ever since.

    6. Three things you almost always have in your purse? Wallet, eyeliner, and iPhone.
    7. Which of your features do you like best? I don’t really have one. I guess I like how my hair is naturally wavy and voluminous and falls into a pretty style naturally, but at the same time it requires some upkeep to combat the naturally dry texture and frizziness. :(
    8. When did you first start wearing mascara? I don’t wear mascara, to be honest. I have short, stubborn Asian lashes and I’m pretty sure only the gods of mascara and eyelash curlers could work with them, and I don’t feel like spending the money needed to hunt them out. I’d rather spend that cash on more unnecessary eyeshadow colors.
    9. Have you ever been in a beauty pageant? Nope. Besides the fact that I definitely do not have the features necessary to participate in one, I am opposed to them philosophically.
    10. Weekly goals: Getting back on track with my paid blogging/site curating mini-job.

    Awwww, it’s CJ!! Thanks, Karen, for including him! That is my little CJ :) And thanks to everyone else too, who commented on him! MBB readers are the best.

    1. Mood: HUNGRY! But happy to see CJ up here on MBB – very proud indeed! – and sad that Borders is closing. Just a whole jumble of emotions, huh?

    3. What’s one thing people may not know about you? I don’t really like monkeys. And this is something people may not know about me because I really am such a HUGE animal lover. ALL kinds of animals! Fluffy cute ones, scaly ones, just EVERYTHING. But monkeys… are a little scary. I mean, particularly when WETA puts facial expressions on them for the Rise of the Planet of the Apes movie. Actually, I think my monkey fear started from 28 Days Later. Yeah.

    5. One of your most regrettable beauty decisions? When I first experimented with makeup, I bought a powder which was totally the wrong colour for me: much too dark and with strong pink undertones. Simply ridiculous… Luckily a lot of time has passed!

  46. Iliana says:

    1. Mood: It’s a mixture of happiness and panic! I teach and we don’t have regular classes this week because of suspensions and special programs. It makes me happy because it’s like an extremely long weekend, but I’m also panicking because I have a lot of catching up to do with my classes!

    6. Three things you almost always have in your purse? Lip gloss, my phone, lip balm.
    7. Which of your features do you like best? I love my eyes. Which makes it strange that I have more lipstick than I do eyeshadow.
    8. When did you first start wearing mascara? I didn’t start wearing it religiously until last fall. UD’s new Cannonball has made it much easier to wear it now in the summer, too. That stuff is the best.
