Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 215

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 four years. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
  1. Mood:
    Pretty good for a Monday, but I’m a little woozy from allergy meds. Yup, spring is in the air. Other than that, things are a-okay. The sun is shining, and it feels like it’s going to be a great day.
  2. What type of coverage do you like in foundation?
    For pics and events, I like full coverage, but for day-to-day wear, I like light-to-medium coverage.
  3. Do you now, or did you ever, own a charm bracelet?
    Oh, yeah. I have a couple of cheesy costume ones from when I was a teen around here somewhere (I think they’re in my pink and green Caboodle, ha!).
  4. Your favorite childhood games?
    Connect Four! I also liked tether-ball, Chinese jump rope and high jump.
  5. Have you ever thrown your pet a birthday party?
    No, but that’s a great idea! :) The only problem is, Tabs was a stray, and I don’t know the date of his actual birthday. And I’m a little reluctant to take my crazy cat lady-ness to that level. Maybe in a few years, though…
  6. Last person to whom you said, “I love you.”
    El Hub, right before he left for work.
  7. A song that reminds you of college?
    Are You That Somebody by Aaliyah. I listened to it all through my senior year whenever I’d get ready to go out.
  8. Can you keep a secret?
    I can, but I wouldn’t want to if it was a secret that could hurt someone else. In those cases, I’d rather just not know.
  9. What are you wearing on your lips right now?
    NARS Velvet Lip Gloss Pencil in Buenos Aires from the new Summer 2012 Collection.
  10. Weekly goals:
    Make some headway on a few writing projects, get back on track with my workouts, do a little bit of cleaning (so I don’t have to do it all on the weekeend), and get to bed by 10 every night (seems like I’m always aiming for this one but falling short).

G’morning, friend! I’m just about to jump on the treadmill. Back when I was younger, I was an afternoon/early evening exerciser, but that’s changed over the past couple years. Now, if I don’t work out in the morning, it usually doesn’t happen at all.

While I go do my best impression of a hamster on a wheel, let me know how you’re doing with a quick hi in today’s Monday Poll. :)

    2. What type of coverage do you like for foundation? I always think that i like light coverage, but my discolorations and massive amounts of freckles work better with a medium coverage. People say I look better in light, but I feel better with medium :)
    3. Do you own a charm bracelet? yes. I’m not sure if it counts as a charm bracelet, but i think it does! Its a bit tight for me now-adays, but I would consider getting a cute new one.
    4. Your favorite childhood games? Pay Day (boardgame — actually, any boardgames for that matter). I also loved baseball and floor hockey.
    5. Have you ever thrown your pet a birthday party? No, not officially :)
    6. Last person to whom you said, “I love you.” The boy, this morning before he left for work.
    7. A song that reminds you of college? Anything by Brand New off their Daisy album. I remember having that on repeat sitting in my dorm room in first year.
    8. Can you keep a secret? Yes. Well, yes, except for with the boy. My friends accept that I will usually share with him, so its not a big deal. Plus I don’t think I’ve been asked to keep a secret in like 5 years — well unless it was a good secret like one of my friends planning a wedding proposal.. that’s worth the secret!
    9. What are you wearing on your lips? Sugar tinted lip treatment in rose.. I love this stuff, and you can sure tell! I keep looking for a moisturizing lip balm with tint.. and I should realize I already have one!
    10. Weekly goals: Keep cheerful, try to exercise or something! Drink more water, show the boy I appreciate him and keep a high work ethic! Also, paint my nails!

  23. Melissa says:

    1. Mood: pretty bummed, unfortunately.

    2. What type of coverage do you like for foundation?: Very sheer. I even find Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer to be too thick. The only one I’ve come to like as of recent is the DiorSkin Nude. Pricey, and just a smidgen too dark, even the lightest color, but it blends nicely and looks super natural.

    3. Do you own a charm bracelet?: No.

    4. Your favorite childhood games?: I don’t know how to explain it, it’s a French game much like hopscotch, but instead it’s in a spiral/snail like shape.

    5. Have you ever thrown your pet a birthday party?: Yes..

    6. Last person to whom you said, “I love you.”: My mom.

    7. A song that reminds you of college?: Any song from the Dresden Dolls “A is for Accident” record.

    8. Can you keep a secret?: of course.

    9. What are you wearing on your lips?: Guerlain Rouge Automatique Nuit d’Amour

    3. Do you own a charm bracelet? I do, it was a college graduation present. I don’t wear it much because I’m afraid of losing the charms.

    5. Have you ever thrown your pet a birthday party? No – I don’t have a pet.

    6. Last person to whom you said, “I love you.” My husband

    7. A song that reminds you of college? That’s tough – anything by Missy Elliot. Also, I had a roomie who had the Dixie Chicks song, “Cowboy Take Me Away” on repeat for months. Whenever I hear that song it reminds me of sitting down with our RA to hash it out!

    8. Can you keep a secret? Usually. I have to admit, most of the time – I will cave and tell my husband.

  26. Jasmine Valistreri says:

    2. What type of coverage do you like for foundation? Medium, light is just silly to me and full makes me feel self conscious.

  31. Bronwyn says:

    1. Mood: exhausted. I hereby declare that a viable ‘mood’ option.
    2. What type of coverage do you like for foundation? I really do swing the full spectrum depending mostly on my mood. On a daily make-up basis sheer/no makeup is really my go to.
    3. Do you own a charm bracelet? I do. of the ‘pandora inspired (read knock off)’ variety rather than a traditional charm bracelet style.
    4. Your favorite childhood games? What a loose question. I mean I loved games in the car like I Spy and purely car counting (like count white cars). At school I enjoyed handball, skipping and whatever the girls hand clapping activity is called. And I never enjoyed ‘Honey if you love me smile’.
    5. Have you ever thrown your pet a birthday party? No.
    6. Last person to whom you said, “I love you.” My German friend Marlene who lived with me when we were in Grade 11 and she was an exchange student to Australia.

    8. Can you keep a secret? My best friend would say no. But that isn’t the whole story. I can but usually only if I deem it to be a non-trivial piece of information. I guess that makes me a frightful gossip. But I don’t pass on negatives and never outside my friends.
    9. What are you wearing on your lips? nothing really, lip balm
    10. Weekly goals:
    Have intelligent conversation at the Christian fellowship meeting.

    1. Mood: Sleepy, stayed up too late last night. Gotta work on that…

    2. What type of coverage do you like for foundation? Thankfully I inherited really good skin, and I take care of it, so I like minimum coverage if I wear foundation at all. Tinted moisturizers are great. And I really like that BB cream!

    3. Do you own a charm bracelet? Yes, my MIL got me one of those Zipponi bracelets, or whatever they’re called, about 10 years ago. I liked it for about a minute. Each link was supposed to be personalized. I got about halfway around it before giving up. It just wasn’t my thing.

    4. Your favorite childhood games? Jump rope, hopscotch, 2×2 basketball (girls against the boys), and a whole bunch of card games I’d play with my Grandma!

    5. Have you ever thrown your pet a birthday party? No. My parents had one once for their dog, but she had been bottle fed as a puppy because her Mama died a day after the puppies were born. My Mom ordered a cake for her and told the bakery that it was for a girl named Tina who liked puppies! LOL! I do have friends who think of their cats as children and have birthday parties for them though. But I am not that kind of girl. My cat is a pet, not my child.

    7. A song that reminds you of college? The Dookie album by Green Day, listened to it a lot back then!
