Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Nov. 30

Published in: Just For Fun

113009-monday-poll

  1. Mood:
  2. Unusually calm for a Monday… We’ll see how long that lasts, LOL!

  3. What’s your favorite body lotion at the moment?
  4. I’m fickle when it comes to body lotions and rarely stick with the same one for long, but last week was all about Vaseline Sheer Infusion. Over the weekend I started crushing hard on Olay In-Shower Moisturizer — a *powerful* enabler of laziness (review coming soon!).

  5. Yay or nay for ankle booties?
  6. Yay with skinny jeans or leggings. :)

  7. Are you a creative person?
  8. It depends on my general well-being from day to day. On bad days, your average piece of cold, greasy bacon has more imagination than I do.

  9. Eyes/lips/cheeks:
  10. It’s a NARS kinda day. I’m going with the Kalahari Duo (LURVE!) on my eyes, Sweet Revenge Lipgloss on my pucker and the Portofino/Malibu Multiple Duo on my cheeks.

  11. Are there any beauty items on your holiday wish list?
  12. I’m thinking about hand delivering my list to Santa at the mall to make sure he gets it. On the list so far — the NARS I Want You Lip Gloss Set and Chanel Professional Makeup Brush Set.

  13. How did you sleep?
  14. Pretty well, mostly. I’ve had some insomnia lately, but I took a sleeping pill before bed last night :(, and that helped. With the exception of one weird dream (I ran into Roger Sterling from Mad Men at the grocery store), I slept soundly through the night.

  15. What are your plans for the upcoming holidays?
  16. Home to visit our family in Hawaii, but I’ll be back in the Bay by New Year’s Eve. On that note, does anyone know much about pet sitting services? Any things to know before I look around? King Tubby Tabs will need an assistant while I’m out of the office.

  17. Outfit:
  18. Stretchy dark jeans with a black t-shirt and brown sweater.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. Get a small Christmas tree, go running at least three times before Saturday, and find a kitty sitter/executive assistant for Tabs.

It’s hard getting back to the grind after a long weekend, isn’t it? I’m determined to make this a good day, though.

I was chatting with a friend last night about ruts and routine tasks, and how they tend to overtake life. It’s not always easy to see the forest through the trees… I told myself that today, if I start feeling overwhelmed, I’m gonna take a step back and remind myself to keep everything in perspective. :)

If you have a sec, pop in and let me know what’s shaking in your land of milk and honey. Just copy the list below, and paste it with your answers in the comments.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

      That’s a huge move, girl! Wow! What’s the reason behind the move?

      • Christina says:

        Haha… just saw I typed in “get buy.” Awesome.

        I’m moving because one of the inherent problems of adjunct professors kicked in for me — enrollment is down at several schools in my area, so there aren’t enough classes in the spring. I’m heading to the Seattle area because there are more jobs there. Hopefully, I can get one of them. :-)

        • Karen says:

          Hopefully you’ll be able to find a gig that pays well and satisfies you. I will keep my fingers crossed and send you good job-seeking energy!

          Seattle is such a beautiful city! I’m sure it’ll be nice to be closer to your sister, too.

    Le list

    1. Mood: Lazy! But happy, this week I finish Uni, forever! LOL
    2. What’s your favorite body lotion at the moment?: I’m not a body lotion fan, I tend to let the scales be. But at the moment I’m absolutely LOVING Dove’s Cream Oil shower thingy, it smells fantastic, spreads and foams like a dream and leaves my skin super hydrated. I think I know where your Olay review is heading :D
    3. Yay or nay for ankle booties?: Not now, it’s too hot for any type of boots here! But yay, cos they look hot with jeans, dresses, skirts, leggings. You know the drill.
    4. Are you a creative person?: I think I am! A makeup artist has to be. And I like painting, drawing, cooking, and I believe they need a certain dose of creativity.
    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks: Nada, I’m just chilling at home. In a few I’ll be recreating a Style Black look, so maybe I should check back in a while?
    6. Any beauty items on your wish list?: I was thinking of indulging on a MAC Holiday palette, but then I changed my mind since the price was 10X the original. It’s just too much of a splurge. So I’m thinking a couple of lippies or shadows. But if there were an imaginary list, OMG I’d go crazy. The list would be taller than me :D
    7. How did you sleep?: Like a pig, yo. 10 hours, a bit too much.
    8. What are your plans for the holidays?: My grandma and cousin are visiting from Brazil for Christmas and New Year, and we’ll probably go partying -with my friends-. Then I’ll probably go to the beach with the girls, and after that maybe live for a couple of months in Brazil with my aunty. Maybe.
    9. Outfit: PJ’s, with bottoms in a disastrous state.
    10. Weekly goals: Finish my last essay, have a hella good time at my grad party on Friday, be able to wake up on Saturday morning to go to my makeup course, do a girls makeup in the afternoon and then assis her Sweet 15th. And rest on Sunday. No doubt about it.

      That’s so exciting, Marce! Do you have any your post-grad plans lined up?

      • Marce says:

        Um…I think I’m gonna go to my aunt’s in Brasil to see if I can work over there for some months, maybe do another makeup course while I’m at it. If I get a job, great! If not, I’ll chill out at the beach for a month or so and then come back home and get a job here. I feel like studying photography, and practicing makeup, LOL. Obsessed? :D

  9. Faye says:

    1) Mood:
    Mellow because I just bought a whole boatload of makeup and that always makes me happy. I freely admit to being shallow sometimes .

    2) What’s your favorite body lotion at the moment?
    Hmm, I need to find one of these. Have some Chanel presents that I might try out.

    3) Yay or nay for ankle booties?
    Love ‘em! As long as the heels aren’t too spindly, so I don’t fall and break my neck . I just bought a new pair of Christian Louboutin ankle boots with thicker heels and they are super-comfortable!

    4)Are you a creative person?
    Not as much as I’d like to, am more of a science and math person by nature. But I like to get creative in the kitchen, by experimenting with cooking and baking . . . and with makeup of course!

    5) Eyes/lips/cheeks
    Eyes: MAC Photorealism quad with Humid as a liner; Estee Lauder mascara (one that curls, forgot the name); MAC See Sheer lipstick; Benefit Coralista on cheeks

    6) Any beauty items on your wish list?
    I’ve been lemming Laura Mercier Pink Grape lipstick ever since I saw my friend wearing it, but I cannot find it anywhere, including online stores, regular store, eBay, MUA, etc. Any ideas? Or should I give up on this Moby Dick?

    7) How did you sleep?
    I’ve been having nightmares for a week . . .very weird since nothing is bothering me. Any psychologists here?

    8) What are your plans for the holidays?
    Home for the holidays; hubby and I traveling to Bora Bora in February 

    9) Outfit:
    Emerald green cashmere sweater, black wool pencil skirt, black tights and Louboutin ankle boots.

    10) Weekly goals:
    Delegate at work, plan menus for holiday parties, buy toys for neighborhood charity toy drive

    • Karen says:

      Faye! What makeup did you get? Share, share!

      • Faye says:

        Oh Karen, I am almost ashamed to say what I got. After all the boatloads of stuff I have, and the resolutions I made last week not to buy anything (“I don’t need anything else from this year’s holiday collections!”) I somehow found myself buying from:

        *Armani (four of the new Rouge d’Armani lipsticks)

        *Lancome (a tinted Aqua Fusion moisturizer and four of their new L’Absolu Rouge lipsticks)

        *Saks (the red lipstick and gold gloss from Estee Lauder’s holiday collection)

        *Too Faced (three lip plumpers — they’re staples I use almost every day)

        *Kate Summervile (decided to try her oil-free moisturizer)

        *Nordstrom (pretty much the entire Shiseido Crystal Rocks holiday collection – two eye shadows, the lipstick, two face powders, an eye liner)

        *Sephora (a Givenchy lipstick that, in my defense, I’ve been trying to get for a year and just came back as an LE item and a NARS lip pencil)

        So now I’m blushing just reading this. It was the sales that sucked me in . . .those darn sales!

        Have you gotten anything lately?

        • Karen says:

          I splurged a little this weekend — I got some nail stuff from Sephora (a cuticle pen and another polish clean-up pen thingy) and a set of hot rollers from Sally Beauty. :) I’m finally getting my hair cut and colored on Weds., which will be my big beauty splurge for the month.

          Ohh, you’ll love that Kate moisturizer. I tried it and liked it, but my skin needs more moisture. It’s fabulous for oily skin, though, and the packaging is genius!

          Let me know what you think of the Lancome tinted moisturizer! I’m curious…

          • Faye says:

            Let me know what brand the Sally rollers are, if you get a chance, and if you like them — I’ve been thinking about trying some to give my super-straight hair a different look occasionally.

            Post pics of your hair once you get it done! We must be in sync — I’m getting a cut and Nigella treatment (for shine/bounce) on Thursday :).

          • Karen says:

            Hi Faye, the rollers are by Jilbere! Will let you know if they’re any good.

            Have fun at the salon on Thursday. I love getting my hair done… it’s so relaxing. “)

  11. jana says:

    aww… if i weren’t on the opposite side of the golden gate, i’d watch tabs! you can board him at a vet or kennel place, but usually they’re in small cages… sometimes bigger ones- depends on how many animals they already have boarding… another option is to have a pet sitter… they’ll come 2-3x a day to make sure he’s ok… if you check craigslist, there’s a lot of people offering their services…. sometimes they’ll even bring the pet to their house and have them stay at their own home… hope that helps! i’m jealous you’re going to hawaii!!

      Oh, and I’ll take some homemade peppermint bark!

      • Molly says:

        Funny that you mention that- it’s a class called Literature into Film… and that’s pretty much the point of the class. Book, movie, discussion, repeat. Most of the people taking it thought we’d be reading/watching Harry Potter and the like… turns out it Oedipus and Amadeus. It IS a uni. class… really.

  27. Catherine says:

    1. Mood: Freaking out. My first two graduate school applications are due tomorrow night, I have two homework assignments due tomorrow morning (neither of which I’ve started) and I was up until 7am working on my statement of purpose which is still a weak piece of crap right now. I just got an email from my GRA with suggestions on how to strengthen it, but I’m already so close to the word limit (for one of the sops anyway) I’m not sure what I can do. AND I still have to write a diversity statement for both schools…

    2. What’s your favorite body lotion at the moment? Korres Jasmine Body Milk. I want the matching body butter too.

    3. Yay or nay for ankle booties? Big yay! These are my favorite kind of boots! I especially love the style when they have the slouchy or folded over cuff. I only have one pair without heels though, since I walk so much.

    4. Are you a creative person? Comparatively, probably fairly creative. Very creative? No, and definitely not as much as I would like to be.

    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks: Nothing yet.

    6. Any beauty items on your wish list? Oh yea, the Tsumori Chisato for Shu Uemura Lucky Cat palette, a Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc, Paul & Joe nail polishes, a couple Paul & Joe blushes, the Paul & Joe compact mirror, a Jill Stuart Blush, the Jill Stuart potted lip balm, the Jill Stuart Holiday Coffret (though this is going to be astronomically expensive on ebay by the time I can afford to pay for it), etc etc.

    7. How did you sleep? Badly.

    8. What are your plans for the holidays? SO and his family and I are going up to the Bay Area for a couple weeks.

    9. Outfit: Still in PJs.

    10. Weekly goals: Survive. After tomorrow I still have another huge hw assigment due Thursday and then finals the week after, along with another two applications. My stress symptoms are already acting up and I have a sore throat… it’s going to be a very long next two weeks. =/

  28. Trude says:

    I’m so jealous of your holiday plans! I’m dying to go somewhere tropical, my trips have always been to Europe during college and regularly to visit family in Norway. :)

    1. Mood: Surprised its after 4! Where did the day go?

    2. What’s your favorite body lotion at the moment? Loving Soap & Glory’s The Righteous Butter from Target, smells sooo good!

    3. Yay or nay for ankle booties? Not for me, it’s always a bad idea for me to cut my short legs off at the ankle. But I’ve seen other gals carry them off beautifully!

    4. Are you a creative person? More so than I’ve ever been. I discovered digital scrapbooking (I’m crap with scissors and glue) a few years ago, and also been getting further and further into photography. They’re my main creative outlets. :)

    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks: Stila pinkish eyeshadow quad, Nars Orgasm blush, Covergirl tinted lip balm.

    6. Any beauty items on your wish list? Isn’t there always? ;) Definitely want to get the full size of Too Faced’s Shadow Insurance primer, that stuff made me finally see the true color of my shadows! Also want to finally find a new fragrance, but that will be a quest in and of itself.

    7. How did you sleep? The usual, i.e. lots of crazy dreams. This time it was about going to a convention in New York, but having to dig through snow and drive on half-finished bridges to get there.

    8. What are your plans for the holidays? Home! My family is super close and we wouldn’t dream of going anywhere for Christmas (except maybe to Norway for once, my dad’s whole side of the family is there). We do everything Xmas Eve, so Xmas Day is pajama day! :)

    9. Outfit: Sequined grey cardigan from Kohl’s (half off, booyah!), loose black tank, black pants. Clearly, I didn’t want to iron today.

    10. Weekly goals: Try to find something to wear for my photo session on Sunday, go shopping for a new iMac (RIP, old one!), start on homemade Xmas gifts.

    9. Outfit: Green v-neck tee, white cami, jeans, brown leather belt, studded moccasins.
    10. Weekly goals: Survive! I have a huge presentation due tomorrow, an online quiz, a final on Thursday, and a huuuuuge test on Friday.

    4. Are you a creative person? Not really. Much more analytical than artsy.
    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks: Always feel I answer the same (see not creative, huh? LOL): Bobbi Brown cream shadow in Malted, golden shimmer powder, indigo ink gel liner. diorShow mascara. Nars Orgasm on the cheeks and Chanel Glossimer in Muscat on the lips. The colors work with the red hair and green eyes so I rarely stray from it.

    2. What’s your favorite body lotion at the moment? I’m not a huge body lotion person, I don’t really know why. My skin gets dry, I guess I’m too lazy to put on lotion. I guess the one I would use is Cetaphil’s Daily Moisturizing Cream.
    3. Yay or nay for ankle booties? Yay!! I wear flat suede ones, although that’s more like ankle boots, not booties. But I do think they’re adorable, although I would look very silly wearing them.

    7. How did you sleep? Pretty good, I went to bed around 10:30 and got up at 6:45….lazy much :D I should be waking up at 6:20, but I prefer sleep to eating and getting ready for a while.
    8. What are your plans for the holidays? Every year my family has Christmas at our house, but I’m not going any where. I REALLY wish I could go to some tropical island…..One can dream!
    9. Outfit: Hah, it’s pathetic. Sweats, uggs, a t-shirt and a Northface. I admit, not very stylish, but SO COMFY!! I’ll make a valid attempt tomorrow.
    10. Weekly goals: finish loads of homework, work on crap for my mock trial, don’t die, be asleep at 10:30 every night, and attempt to eat healthier.

    1. Mood: Nervous! I’m getting a haircut tomorrow afternoon–always an ordeal for a curly girl!

    2. What’s your favorite body lotion at the moment? Currently I’m using B&BW body cream in Twilight Woods. Love the scent, but the cream isn’t working for my cold-weather skin. I need something thicker!

    3. Yay or nay for ankle booties? Oh dear, a fashion question. I’m terrible with clothes! Inevitably my hair and makeup will look smokin’, but then I’m in jeans with a cute top! I need a personal shopper or something. The What Not to Wear people would tear me apart.

    4. Are you a creative person? I wish! I tried scrapbooking before, but I never could come up with my own layouts.

    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks: Cargo Tahiti palette, UD 24/7 liners in Honey and Covet, Nars Orgasm blush (as usual!), and MAC lipglass in Queen Bee, topped with Stila Kitten lipgloss.

    6. Any beauty items on your wish list? Oh, geez! UD Super Stash and Book of Shadows II are at the top. And several MAC eyeshadows and lipglasses! And I’ve been wanting to try Diorshow Iconic mascara forever, I can just never bring myself to drop $27 on it!

    7. How did you sleep? Great! The trouble will come tonight. I’m used to sleeping during the day, since I work nights. But I really need to keep normal person hours for the next couple of days. I predict dark circles!

    8. What are your plans for the holidays? Working! I was off Thanksgiving, so I’m working Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day.

    9. Outfit: Heh. Jeans and a fitted Avenged Sevenfold top. With glittery silver Converse sneakers. Yep, not a fashion diva! (I’m telling you, I’ll do my own makeup, I just need someone to dress me!)

    10. Weekly goals: Get my haircut (and hopefully not hate it!), go to the gym at least twice, and come up with a new makeup look.

    Hi Karen,
    I can’t answer all of the questions you posed, but I wanted to suggest checking with your vet’s office for pet sitters.
    If you have friends that don’t love too far, perhaps you can ask them? So long a someone pops by once a day, that should be fine. Probably the best solution would be to board Tabs. Not ideal, but at least you know where he is all the time! There is a great cat-boarding place in San Carlos that lets the kitties out once a day to roam around (just one at a time) and had a separate play room for one on one time with the staff to exercise and interact with them.
    Good luck with that – keep us posted!
