Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 206

Published in: Just For Fun


Keep looking up…

  • 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 four years. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
  1. Mood:
  2. Well, I’m on the cusp between fussy and glad. I’ve been fighting a cold since yesterday and still feel a little run down, so I’m gonna try to take it easy today.

  3. How do you feel about teal eyeliner?
  4. I feel great about it. :) Not so much now in the middle of winter, but definitely in the spring and summer, especially paired with orange lips.

  5. The name of a perfume you own but never wear?
  6. Chanel No. 5. I received a bottle as a gift some years back, and I’ve always liked the scent, but I still don’t quite feel like it fits me yet. I keep it, though, because I seem to like it more and more every year.

  7. Have you ever noticed…
  8. …all of the ads catering to cat ladies in Real Simple magazine? Seriously, it’s almost like every other page has something to do with kitty litter, wet food or removing cat hair from the couch.

    I guess their readership includes a high percentage of cat ladies (myself included, haha!).

  9. A scent that reminds you of your teenage years?
  10. Bath & Body Works Juniper Breeze… I must have gone through 50 gallons of that stuff.

  11. Where’s your favorite place to nap?
  12. Either downstairs on the couch or upstairs on the floor in my office (next to Tabs, of course).

    Funny, but I just realized that I never actually nap in my bed.

  13. What’s the best thing about Mondays?
  14. I like the idea of Mondays as a fresh start.

  15. How’s your hair today?
  16. Not bad. I straightened it yesterday and haven’t washed it yet, so it isn’t frizzy, which is good, and my bangs are behaving (I’m thinking about growing them out).

  17. What’s the most important thing you look for in a lipgloss besides color?
  18. Moisture. I need a ton of it because my lips get very dry.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. I’m tempering my ambitions this week, so I just want to take it easy, get plenty of rest, and keep this cold at bay, if possible.

How about you? How are you doing this morning? Did you have a good weekend? I hope you were able to carve out some “me” time for yourself (it’s important).



Tabs is sitting here next to my desk watching the birds in the oak tree outside the window and purr-chirping up a storm!

I wish I felt a little better right now and we could all hang out today and do something fun (like a museum, a makeup counter or a movie), but since technology hasn’t quite gotten us there yet, for now at least, the Monday Poll will have to do. :)

  2. 1. Mood:
    For some reason, lethargic today :(

    2. How do you feel about teal eyeliner?
    I’ve never tried it… but now that you mention it I probably should give it a try, just for the fun of it and to see how it looks on me! :P

    3. The name of a perfume you own but never wear?
    Vera Wang Rock Princess. It was a gift and although I do like it, it doesn’t seem to suit me. I think it’s too “spicy”.

    4. Have you ever noticed…
    … that

    5. A scent that reminds you of your teenage years?
    Estee Lauder Pleasures. It was one of the very first perfumes in the house.

    My bed, or on the couch downstairs :)

    7. What’s the best thing about Mondays?
    The fact that the online comics I frequently read update Mondays-Fridays, so Mondays mean yay start of new comics!

    It needs a wash tomorrow. I wash it alternately, and today it’s a little straggly so it’s pinned up.

    9. What’s the most important thing you look for in a lipgloss besides color?
    Like you Karen, moisture. If a lipgloss can provide moisture as good a lipbalm it’s great!

    Like it! Doesn’t matter if it’s summer, spring or winter.

    Chanel no. 5. The perfume smells amazing, but is a little too strong and expensive to wear it daily.

    4. Have you (ever) noticed…
    ..that Madonna was, mostly, lipsyncin yesterday. At least I think she did.

    5. A scent that reminds you of your teenage years?
    The Burberry Brit perfume reminds me of my high school years.

    6. Where’s your favorite place to nap?
    In my own bed! I do it all the time. There was a show on tv last saturday that said taking naps was healthy for your heart. It gets rid of stress. My moms reaction towards me: ‘You must have a really healthy heart!’. Haha.

    7. What’s the best thing about Mondays?
    The MBB Monday Poll! Other than that, mondays s*ck.

    8. How’s your hair today?
    Straight with an almost washed out red dip dye.. all up in a messy bun.

    9. What’s the most important thing you look for in a lipgloss besides color?

    Start my new internship tomorrow. Make a good impression.

    8. How’s your hair today? Washed it last night before bed, so it is nice and silky. I had the urge to put it up in a classic high ponytail today, which is so odd, because I’m usually a wear it down or up in a topknot kind of gal.

    9. What’s the most important thing you look for in a lipgloss besides color? I hate when lipglosses are sticky. I love NARS, but their lipglosses are like glue.

    Happy but in a need of a workout thanks to all the food I ate this weekend.

    2.How do you feel about teal eyeliner?
    I love it. I was wearing a MAC teal eyeliner on the night I admitted to myself I was in love with my bf (apparently he did the same to himself) so…yup, teal eyeliner: bringing people together.

    3.The name of a perfume you own but never wear?
    It’s a JLo perfume. I bought it b/c I like her other ones, but this one just never really smelled that good to me.

    4.Have you ever noticed…
    …that sometimes things just fall into place, no matter how hard we try to fight it? I spent so much of my younger years fretting about the future, and although 80% of it hasn’t turned out the way I expected, I’m still grateful and happy for how they did turn out.

    5.A scent that reminds you of your teenage years?
    CKone. I thought I was soooooo cool.

    6.Where’s your favorite place to nap?
    Bf’s bed with the comforter blanket-y thing I got him for Christmas. That thing has drugs in it or something, b/c it just makes you fall asleep instantly.

    3. The name of a perfume you own but never wear? DKNY Be Delicious. I don’t know… I just can’t get back into it because I’ve become really into fresh or floral scents.

    4. Have you ever noticed… how time seems to just fly by?! I still can’t get over how fast college has come and gone for me! High school seemed to really drag on but it’s like college felt crazy accelerated.

    5. A scent that reminds you of your teenage years? Bath and Body Works Orange Mandarin! I remember I’d always sweeten myself up with it in the locker room after PE!

    6. Where’s your favorite place to nap? My beautiful, glorious bed. Sometimes I go onto my recliner but nothing beats my bed and thick, warm blankets!

    7. What’s the best thing about Mondays? Being able to see my friends and the anticipation of awesome/funny/nice occurrences that will happen throughout the week.

    8. How’s your hair today? Under control. I’ve been using the cleansing conditioner from Wen by Chaz Dean and really like how soft and manageable it makes my hair. I got this as a sample from my Glam Bag because I was still debating whether or not to pull the trigger on this because of the price.

    9. What’s the most important thing you look for in a lipgloss besides color? Definitely moisture. I’m not sure if it’s mainly because it’s still winter but my lips have been FLAKY. That’s why I’ve been stocking up on lip balms, lip butters, and other hydrating lip products XD

    10. Weekly goals: Try and relax despite all the stressors going on right now. And study for my mammalian physiology midterm on Thursday. Midterm season. Yay,

    2. How do you feel about teal eyeliner? Adore. Brighter for summer, blackened for winter.
    3. The name of a perfume you own but never wear? I don’t have any! I stick to CREED Virgin Island Water, and that’s my daily thing. I don’t change it up often with scents.
    4. Have you ever noticed…how many showers don’t have ledges to rest your feet while shaving your legs? What do shower makers think we like to do–practically touch our toes every time we shave? Sit on the shower floor?
    5. A scent that reminds you of your teenage years? Oh, man. Anything cheap vanilla takes me back to middle school, and BBW Plumeria to high school. After swim practice, the entire locker room reeked of it.
    6. Where’s your favorite place to nap? Bed. Unless there’s a possibility that my cat will cuddle me, then, the couch.
    7. What’s the best thing about Mondays? Waking up feeling refreshed after the weekend!

    9. What’s the most important thing you look for in a lipgloss besides color? Ability to apply without a mirror. If I have to pull out a mirror and lip brush for a gloss, it’s not worth it.

    10. Weekly goals: That to-do list is going down! And my hair is going to look as awesome as it does today all week, as a bonus.

  15. Dominique says:

    1) Mood : not so good, we’re having a harsh winter and I don’t like it

    2) I have never tried any eyeliner, I am allergic to it

    3) Well, none ! I’ve been wearing perfumes for years now and I always wear 3 or 4 different perfumes, even when I sleep !

    4 ) Have you ever noticed…. that the Web is a wonderful thing to get to know people that live far away from France ?

    5) A scent that remains me of my youth ? Well lily-of-the-valley, it would grow in my grand-mother’s garden and when I reached 18 years I found Diorissimo, a perfume which has remained one of my favourites !

    6) My bed !

    7) Well, the best thing is that shops and boutiques are open !

    8) Not good, I really need colour !

    9) Moisture because my lips are very dry

    10) Well, just simples things such as feeling better and resting, reading about Paris my beloved town ( I live in Bordeaux but I wish I could go to Paris ! )

    Thank you Karen

    • Liz in Paris says:

      I’m the opposite – love Bordeaux but live in Paris!!

      • Dominique says:

        Well, let’s change then LOL ! Bordeaux is a quiet little town whereas Paris is quite the opposite. Of course there are beautiful wineyards here, of course we have the sea, of course it’s often sunny but there is no magical atmosphere like in Paris. You have the Marais, the Fbg St Honoré, the Quartier latin and St Germain among others, and for a beauty addict it’s better to live in Paris than in Bordeaux !
        Best,

    • Karen says:

      Thank you for filling out the poll, Dominique! Have a wonderful week. :)

    9. What’s the most important thing you look for in a lipgloss besides color? That it’s 1)not sticky and 2)doesn’t have a fruity, sweet, overpowering scent. I like Clarins ones for that reason.

    Happy Monday, everyone!

  18. Susan says:

    1. Mood: Not bad for a Monday. Happy the Giants won last night! If Peyton and the Colts can’t be in the SB in our home stadium, glad that his brother could be successful there :)

      What’s your dog’s name, btw?

        His name is Grady…he doesn’t look like a typical Min Pin, his ears and tail were never cut (my husband and I didn’t want him to have that pain!) and he looks like a miniature black and tan hound dog instead. Of course, we think he’s pretty adorable :) He goes to work with my husband every day. He operates heavy equipment (dozers, excavators, etc) and Grady is his co-pilot :) He’s quite a character!

    Sorry you’re sick. I had to cancel today’s appointments. Been up all night with a stomach virus (severe cramps, vomiting, headache, etc…). Stayed in bed and played with my Dior and Guerlain spring eye shadow palettes.

    Love vibrant teal eyeliner to perk up my eyes for an evening look.

    Curve has been in the dark recesses of my bathroom cupboards for ~15 years. It’s too chemical smelling on me.

    Seasonal makeup trends on some online news outlets are very ADD and will include every shade, color, and application . Nude lips, bright coral lips, pastel eye shadows, deeply pigmented shadows in vibrant colors, etc.. Just PICK a trend.

    Vanilla scents started getting popular during my teen years.

    I pretty much only nap in my bed.

    Your Monday polls are fun to reply and read. How sad that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is my Monday evening staple. After tonight’s part 2 reunion, I’m not sure what I’ll watch, read, do…

    Since I was leaning over a bucket most of the night/day, my hair is pulled back into a ponytail.

    I consider the tone/shimmer in lipgloss very important since I always layer it over lipstick.

    Get a pedicure using one of my new polishes.

    1. Mood: Tired, as I’m fighting off getting sick–woke up this morning congested and it’s progressively gotten worse today. I blame the strange-arse weather!!

    2. How do you feel about teal eyeliner? Great–with my hazel eyes, I’ve always been able to rock this color!! Since the spring looks are really focusing on this color, I’m ready and willing!!

    3. The name of a perfume you own but never wear? Fiore Flirt by Stacked Style….I got this several years ago from Sephora and work it for about six months or so after I got it, but alas it has sat lonely on my dresser since. I reach for it every so often, but I guess I’m just “over it” now…….

    4. Have you ever noticed…how much trash talk there is the day AFTER the superbowl….must be a “guy thing”

    5. A scent that reminds you of your teenage years? It’s gotta be L’Air du Temps by Nina Ricci..I still remember the tv commercials for this fragrance and hoping it would show up on Christmas morning!!

    6. Where’s your favorite place to nap? In bed, snuggled on TOP of the covers with my favorite fleece blanket

    7. What’s the best thing about Mondays? It’s a fresh start to the week!!

    1. Mood:
    ~Sleepy – just got back from an outdoor show in PA.

    2. How do you feel about teal eyeliner?
    ~I’m all for it. I love different colored eyeliners.

    3. The name of a perfume you own but never wear?
    ~Dior Midnight Poison. It’s a rather heavy, rose-scented perfume. It tends to be a sexy night out type of perfume, and is too heavy for the daytime. But I love the scent.

    4. Have you ever noticed…
    ~how in a 200+ page edition of Glamour magazine has A LOT of ads? I enjoy reading some ads…but I’d rather see more articles than ads!

    5. A scent that reminds you of your teenage years?
    ~I also love Bath and Body Works! However, my scent in my teenage years was Sweet Pea. I sometimes still wear it.

    6. Where’s your favorite place to nap?
    ~The couch or my bed.

    7. What’s the best thing about Mondays?
    ~Starting a new work week fresh.

    8. How’s your hair today?
    ~Nice, hasn’t been shampooed for a couple of days. It is soft and not frizzy or staticky.

    9. What’s the most important thing you look for in a lipgloss besides color?
    ~Moisture and staying power. It does get annoying to have to reapply after a half hour.

    10. Weekly goals:
    ~See what is needed for my new class that starts next week.
    ~Try some home remedies for my injured knee, and see my doc if nothing is working.
    ~Add more to my home work-out routine. I really need to do crunches, dips, and ab exercises again. I will also start doing more triangle push-ups.

  48. Sadie says:

    So I’m a little late, so what…
    1. Mood: h-exhausted. It’s already been a long week and I too have a cold, which stinks a lot.

    2. How do you feel about teal eyeliner? Love love love. Both pencil for something smudgy but I also have a GOSH liquid one which has metallic and black undertones – amazing for the flickier looks.

    3. The name of a perfume you own but never wear? I wear all my perfumes in rotation.

    4. Have you ever noticed…how cold weather brings out the grumpier side of people, especially on the morning commute? I’ve been elbowed out of the way more than usual this week since it snowed in London over the weekend.

    5. A scent that reminds you of your teenage years? There were several, the main being White Musk from the Body Shop, which can transport me back to age 13 like nothing else, and So…?, which seemed tres chic at the time but really just smells of sweets…cheap ones at that.

    6. Where’s your favorite place to nap? On the Piccadilly line (tube) to and from work.

    7. What’s the best thing about Mondays? That they finish, eventually.

    8. How’s your hair today? Annoying – my fringe (bangs to you) needs a trim and keeps getting in my eyes.

    9. What’s the most important thing you look for in a lipgloss besides color? Moisturising qualities – I have very dry lips that are also prone to eczema if I use the wrong things on them.

    10. Weekly goals: Get through the two training courses I’m on whilst also getting my day-to-day work done. And keeping good humoured about it!

  49. Kayleigh says:

    Mood:
    A little tired because I’ve got a cold too! But happy I have tomorrow off so I can relax around the house!

    How do you feel about teal eyeliner?
    One of my favourite colourful liner shades but I can only pull it off with a little streak of it on the outer corner of my lower lashline! I like it paired with bronze shadows.

    The name of a perfume you own but never wear?
    Versace Red Jeans – I used to love it but I guess my perfume tastes changed and now I feel like it’s just not “me”. I still like the smell, just not on myself.

    Have you ever noticed…
    After you’ve been sick and your nose was all stuffed up, and then it starts to clear up again, that it seems like the air stings the inside of your sensitive nostrils? Hahah gross I know but it’s like they were so protected for a few days and now it’s just harsh exposure!!

    A scent that reminds you of your teenage years?
    Calgon Hawaiian Ginger Body Spray – I think every girl in my high school (including me) had this stuff and sprayed it on themselves liberally after gym class and in the hallways between periods. I still have a bottle and I still love the scent!
    Where’s your favorite place to nap?
    In my bed if I’m really lazy or sick, but it’s so hard to get up from sleeping in bed so the couch is usually a smarter place, I don’t usually over-nap there!

    What’s the best thing about Mondays?
    Mondays aren’t too different from other days for me since I don’t have a regular work schedule. When I did work a Mon-Fri work week… well I didn’t care too much for Mondays! LOL I just looked at them as a chance to catch up with my favourite coworkers I guess!

    How’s your hair today?
    Eeeehhh… my bangs have been bothering me the last week or so and I’ve been trying to figure out what to do to fix them carefully, so I don’t do anything rash and really mess them up! But I do think it’s trim time….

    What’s the most important thing you look for in a lipgloss besides color?
    A tie between moisture because my lips also get REALLY REALLY dry (like Saharan desert dry) and longevity because I don’t like to reapply all the time and I have a habit of rubbing my lips together which makes it wear away quicker.

    Weekly goals:
    Get better from this cold, make a lot of commission at work and hopefully be able to go out and have a fun Friday night!
