Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, May 24

Published in: Just For Fun


Sunrise over Diamond Head Crater, Oahu, Hawaii

  1. Mood:
  2. Pretty good! I got eight hours o’ glorious sleep last night and feel rested and recharged. :)

  3. Three things that bring a smile to your face?
  4. 1) Kittens, 2) finding something great on sale and 3) the smell of freshly brewed coffee

  5. What do you wear to sleep?
  6. Now, mostly workout clothes — tank tops, t-shirts and yoga pants. That way, I’m already dressed to exercise first thing in the morning if the rhythm hits me. Oh, and if a fire breaks out sometime in the night and I have to make a mad dash outside, I’ll be dressed for it… Don’t want my goods hanging out for all the neighbors to see.

  7. Your favorite pair of shoes?
  8. You may already know this one — the yellow platform sandals I got on sale at Aerosoles a few years ago.

  9. Eyes/lips/cheeks:
  10. I’m in product testing mode today and wearing a bunch of random but promising things: Hard Candy 1,000 Lashes Fiberized Mascara in Mermaid Teal/Illamasqua Sheer Lipgoss in Electrify/Illamasqua Cream Blusher in Promise

  11. Your latest food/snack obsession?
  12. Last weekend I re-discovered my love for Jamba Juice’s Orange Dream Machine.

  13. Are you double jointed ?
  14. Nope, but I do have astonishing toe control. I can hold a pen and write with ‘em!

  15. What’s one beauty product that everyone else raves about yet doesn’t rock your boat?
  16. Rosebud Salve… I like the way it smells and feels, but my lips need more moisture. And (yep, I know it’s weird), I don’t like dipping my fingers in the tin.

  17. Outfit:
  18. Ha! The layered workout ensemble I wore to bed last night — a gray hoodie over a brown tank top over a brown t-shirt. I’m getting ready to change into jeans and a white tank top here in a minute. Yep, I’m all about tank tops today.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. Adhere to a stricter freelance writing and blogging schedule (I’ve been known to spend 100 hours/week on blogging), avoid junk food, exercise at least three times, and finally deal with the mountain of cardboard boxes in the dining room.

What’s shakin’, turkey bacon? Wouldn’t it be nice if we could grab a cup of coffee in the break room this morning and gab about the weekend (le sigh!)?

        That sounds like my nightmare. I have zilch for ab strength (as evidenced by my muffin top) and need much improvement in that area.

        Do you think a person who was formerly in shape do that series of DVDs? Or is more for advanced exercisers?

    7. Are you double jointed? Extremely, especially my knees and elbows.
    8. What’s one beauty product that everyone else raves about yet doesn’t rock your boat? Cream blushes. I don’t know if I’m just not using them right, but they always seem to get muddied by my foundation. Also, I love the pigmentation/texture of the UD 24/7 liners, but they definitely smudge a lot for me.
    9. Outfit: T-shirt and cropped yoga pants.
    10. Your weekly goals: Get a lot done on the baby blanket I’m knitting, schedule a few presentations at my church to get more ministry partners… this internship might be the death of me!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Lo,

      Coffee and gab sesh it is, then!

      Hmm, I am a HUGE fan of cream blushes… now I’m on a mission to convert you, ha ha! Which ones have you tried? Do you apply before or after foundation?

      • lo says:

        I’ve only used drugstore brands (Revlon and Maybelline) and the Pixi gel blush, and I use them after foundation. But they always look so pretty and fresh and glowy, so I’m definitely open to conversion. I really want one that’s decent quality and not too expensive!

        • Karen says:

          I haven’t used the Revlon or Maybelline ones, so I can’t really throw in my two cents, but the department store brands I’ve tried are the shizz! Illamasqua makes a good one (plus the pan is huge), as well as MAC and Laura Mercier. All of these blend really well into the skin and stay all day.

  6. Debbie says:

  11. Liz! says:

    My first Monday morning list!

    2. Three things that bring a smile to your face? 1. My dog- LOVE him! He’s the best hiking buddy I could ask for 2. My hubs- LOVELOVELOVE him, he’s just the best, period :) 3. Living on the east coast again, I missed it so much!

      Oooh, what cakes are you baking? I have a major sweet tooth and need to vicariously live through you, ha ha. :)

      • Liz! says:

        I also suffer from a killer sweet tooth :D I’m just making him a regular old birthday cake, I made 2 mini ones so I could layer it. I decided to go with the “funfetti” kind to make it look all festive. And, since I was feeling especially daring after the fondant I decided to put a vanilla/lime creme layer in the middle. Should be yummy summer fun!

        <3 your blog Karen, Happy Monday!

        • Karen says:

          Gosh that sounds delicious. I’ve been craving light cakes lately and just reading your comment made my tummy rumble. He’s going to love it, I’m sure.

          One of these days I’ll have to dig up my Italian Cream Cake recipe for you. It’s the best cake out of my repertoire!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Toni,

      You’re wearing one of my favorite Chanel colors today, Safari. :)

      Glad to hear your son’s party was fun. Was it an end of the year celebration?

      • Toni says:

        I love the Chanel Safari! Lily is part of the new matte eyeshadow collection. The next color I want to get is Slate (also from the new matte collection).

        It was an end of the year celebration from school. He’s in a mild autism class, so we had it in the “sensory room”. The boys had a blast with the bubble machine and the light machine. They loved the snacks and craft activities too. Only 2 more days of school for him, but homeschooling for my daughter will be going on for awhile (we started in September instead of August).

  13. Alison says:

    1. Mood: Optimistic, but a little disappointed b/c I slept in WAY too late today!
    2. Three things that bring a smile to your face? 1) a snuggle from my kitties 2) random compliments from the fiance 3) walking past the big “Sephora: Coming Soon” sign in my local mall!
    3. What do you wear to sleep? usually PJ pants and an old t-shirt
    4. Your favorite pair of shoes? This past winter, I got a pair of knee-high black Coach riding boots. I could only afford them because they were on super-sale. I feel so classy when I wear them!
    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks: Nothing yet, but I know that on my eyes, I’ll be trying out Hard Candy “Walk the Line” liquid eyeliner, and on my lips, I’ll be trying out their Mouthing Off gloss. Probably Tarte cheek stain in “Blissful” on my cheeks- that’s my usual.
    6. Your latest food/snack obsession? Pita chips w/ cinnamon and sugar!
    7. Are you double jointed? No way- I’m barely even single jointed! I’m the least flexible person ever!
    8. What’s one beauty product that everyone else raves about yet doesn’t rock your boat? Bare Minerals, fo sho! I have very sensitive skin and was drawn in by all of the claims that “it’s so gentle, you can sleep in it!” (Not that I would…) But it ended up giving me a big red rash all over my face!
    9. Outfit: Still in pj’s… how embarrassing!
    10. Your weekly goals: Get the house clean, finish up a draft of a paper I’m trying to get published!

    Karen, I’m excited to hear your review of the Hard Candy mascara! Just yesterday, I went out to WalMart and bought a few HC things to try. So far, I can report that the nail polish is quite nice!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Alison,

      Oh cool! What Hard Candy items did you end up getting? What do you think of Walk the Line?

      Right now I’m working on a review of the Take Me Out Liners.

      BTW, I had the same trubs with Bare Minerals. It totally made me break out!

      • Alison says:

        I got:
        two nail polishes: Envy, which is a very dark green shimmer (looks black until the light hits it) and Frenzy, a creamy turquoise

        Walk the Line in Praline (shimmery bronze-brown)

        and Mouthing Off lip gloss in Exotic (a weird color- looks like coral with lots of gold shine in the tube, but when you look at it on the wand, the gloss itself is more like a magenta)

        So far, I really like it all! The Walk the Line liner has a really nice brush and applies really smoothly. The only slight problem is that it takes a while to dry. I ended up with some in the crease because i didn’t keep my eye shut long enough! But it seems like it has real staying power.

  14. Melissa says:

    1. Mood: a little tired, and not really wanting to go to work.
    2. Three things that bring a smile to your face? cats, babies, my bf!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Melissa,

      Tell me about your kittehs! From what I recall you have Persians, right?

      • melissa says:

        yes! i have 7 cats…yes…7! the father of most of them is a himalayan, mom is a silver persian and so the babies (well, they’re 6 now so not really babies but)…i guess are mostly persian, considering himalayans are part persian! soo cute, i love them soo much. we also have two adopted cats to even out the mix, but they don’t know better and think that they are long-haired, flat-faced beauties as well! :)

        • Karen says:

          Aww, fur family!! I sometimes wish Tabs wasn’t snipped… I would love for him to father and awesome litter of fabulous little tabbies for me love. :D

          What type of kittehs are your adopted cats?

          • Melissa says:

            i know! it was so fun to have our very own kittens! my mom wanted us (me and my brother) to experience the joy of having baby kitties while we were young, and it was so amazing! the strays are black and white mutts, they’re from the same litter and they came as a package deal. they have longish hair, so i think they think they’re part of the brood, hehe :) funny thing is, my bf claimed to not like cats when we met, but as soon as one of them crawled under the covers with us one night, he was hooked! they like him more than me sometimes i think! :)

  15. Trude says:

    1. Mood: Good! Had a good weekend with the boy, although I could use more sleep. :)

    1. Mood: Miserable. I came down with a fever, body ache, etc several hours after SO left for a weekend camping trip on Friday and have steadily progressed now to what I believe is a sinus infection (complete with pounding migraine the entire time). I’m about to go to the doc’s so I can get a note. I’m supposed to be taking a quiz right now and a final tomorrow. Ugh.

    2. Three things that bring a smile to your face? Cute animal pictures, warm towels fresh out of the dryer, good food.

    3. What do you wear to sleep? Soft gym pants and tshirts.

    4. Your favorite pair of shoes? Ever? The pair of black chucks my grandpa bought me in Taiwan, they had white dragons on the sides. Got ruined in the rain my freshman year of college.

    7. Are you double jointed? No… and I have no dexterity with my toes either.

    8. What’s one beauty product that everyone else raves about yet doesn’t rock your boat? I don’t like Rosebud Salve either!!! Or practically any other lipbalm that anyone else recommends. I’m either allergic or it’s not moisturizing enough for me.

    9. Outfit: Grey sweatpants and SO’s navy sweater.

    10. Your weekly goals: At this point, getting better is priority #1. So disappointing because I’d had a bad last week and all I was looking forward to over the weekend was to get a breather, finish cleaning the apartment and study well for the two things, work on some group projects…. uggggh. ;_;

      • Catherine says:

        Thanks Karen! I just got back from the doctor’s and I’m trying to motivate myself to take a shower LOL…. everything is 10x harder when you’re sick. Happily I don’t quite have a sinus infection yet so my #1 goal is to take good care of myself so this doesn’t turn into one. Those traditionally knock me out for about 10 days and there’s only 2 weeks left in the quarter!

      Hi Gio,

      What are your favorite brands? I’d love to hear what you like in terms of color!

      • gio says:

        Hi Karen,

        one of my favourite brands ever is Sleek. It’s an UK brand and I adore their eyeshadow palettes, which contain 12 shades and are very cheap. All the colors are very pigmented, soft and easy to blend. They also came out with a palette with neon shades, which for a fan of bold shades like me, was a dream come true. Sugarpill also makes colorful shades which have fantastic color payoff.

        I also love mineral makeup companies like Fyrinnae and Beauty from the Earth which offer practically any color you can think of and are all very pigmented and cheap too. I understand that not everyone likes using pigments though as they can be messy especially if you don’t have much time to get ready.

    I miss the ABC stores on EVERY corner, but I did find the nice Asian? store for makeup that had a good variety of nail polish across from either the DFS mall and/or another little 2-3 story mall inside a building complex. I recall the store because just down the street east to it was a new lady who was opening up a sweets booth but couldn’t give out samples before 4pm? Werid!

        Zena’s been lallygagging outside a lot since the warmer weather came yesterday. Actually, I found her rolling in the grass earlier today which I hate because she brings in all the grass pollen (not to mention smells like grass…ick). Grass pollen = allergies.

      Hi Steph B,

      Oh, I have many a pair like your patent croc heels. They look nice while you’re sitting, but anything beyond a block or two is pretty much not happening. I wore a pair to the graduation on Sunday and was hating life as we were trekking all over the campus.

      But onto more exciting things, like your birthday week!! Got any big plans?

        I even wear a different pair for the commute and they still can’t make it through the day. Such a shame cause I love em so much.
