Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 229

Published in: Just For Fun

July 16, 2012 Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll Vol. 229

  • 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:
    Mellow right now. I just finished a run and no longer have that ants-in-my-pants wiggly feeling. Running really does soothe the savage beast!
  2. Your favorite frozen treat?
    Well, I’ve got quite the sweet tooth, so this answer changes all the time, but right now I’m all about Trader Joe’s Coconut Fruit Floes. They’re coconut water popsicles with shredded coconut bits, and they taste so good!
  3. What energizes you?
    So many things! Listening to upbeat music, hanging out with friends and getting in a solid 10 hours of precious, sweet sleep are just a few.
  4. Last time you went to the beach?
    May. It’s been too long!
  5. What makeup or beauty products do you use to fight shine?
    GURL. MAC Blot is the business for keeping the oily spots on my forehead and nose in check.
  6. What would you do if you had one extra hour of free time today?
    I’d probably take a nap. Or, maybe I’d use the time to cook a really good dinner.
  7. Have you ever bought anything after watching an informercial?
    No, but I came this close once after seeing the infomercial for P90X. Coincidentally, I was also eating a donut at the time; that may have been a contributing factor to the sudden and intense urge to exercise vigorously.
  8. Can you count how many times you’ve watched Dirty Dancing?
    Honestly? Maybe about 500 times, give or take. I had it on VHS tape in the late ‘80s and watched it every day after school for, like, years.
  9. Heroes or villains?
    Although villains always seem to have the more interesting origin stories, I’d have to go with heroes, especially underdogs.
  10. Weekly goals:
    Nothing too exciting this week: try a new hairstyle, call my parents and eat a salad every day for lunch.

Hello, sweet friend. :) I hope your day is off to a good start.

If you’ve got some time, please come say hello in the Monday Poll. I always love to hear from you!

      Hi Marina!

      I’ve never gotten around to watching the second Dirty Dancing, believe it or not. One of the these days…

      And I totally know what you mean when you say villains that are heroes! They do make interesting characters to root for.

      • Marina says:

        You should definitely watch DD 2, it’s set in Cuba. I am a HUGE Romola fan, so I had to see it. I even have a CD with all the songs from the film. By the way, how do you like True Blood 5 so far? I am not watching yet as I want for all the episodes to be available to start. I hate waiting every week…I’ve heard some rumours about S and A, is it true, lol?

        • Karen says:

          GIRL, it is true!!! There’s a very satisfying moment with S and A…and then something happens, of course, LOL! So far I’m really enjoying the season. I am a huge fan of the new vamp guy, Christopher Meloni.

          Okay, I will see if I can get DD 2 on Netflix! :D

          • Marina says:

            Ha, thanks for satisfying my curiosity! I am now on a roll watching films with Gael Garcia Bernal. And have you seen anything you’d recommend recently?

          • Karen says:

            Believe it or not, the new Spider-man with Andrew Garfield was excellent. I also really liked Seeking a Friend for the End of the World with Kiera Knightly and Steve Carell, although I had a couple of nightmares about the apocalypse afterwards. :(

            Have you seen anything good lately that I need to put on my movie list?

        • NeenaJ says:

          Hi Marina,

          You mentioned Gael Garcia Bernal and you’ve not seen it, I totally recommend Don’t Tempt Me where he plays the devil. Penelope Cruz is awesome in it, too.

    6. What would you do if you had one extra hour of free time today? Bake something yummy! Like cheesecake. Or cinnamon buns. With icing. Or carrot cake.
    7. Have you ever bought anything after watching an informercial? Yup. When I was pregnant and couldn’t sleep, I’d watch infomercials and I bought a pasta maker. It worked really well and I loved it!
    8. Can you count how many times you’ve watched Dirty Dancing? Nope. I mean, I saw it in theatre too when it came out, and I watch it every time it’s on TV. Probably in the 100s!

    2. Your favorite frozen treat? Grapefruit sorbet from Le Billboquet, a local ice cream place.

    3. What energizes you? A good walk with the dog, a nice milonga (Tango party) or social dance session.

    4. Last time you went to the beach? About 8 years ago – in Singapore & Malaysia. I have a beach on the “next real vacation” list!

    5. What makeup or beauty products do you use to fight shine? MAC Blot, generic drugstore brand blotting films, those toilet liner sheets on the airplane (sounds weird, but totally works)!

    6. What would you do if you had one extra hour of free time today? Clean out the junk closet in the hallway. Getting ready to move in September!

    7. Have you ever bought anything after watching an informercial? MIGHTY PUTTY. It really works. I fixed my Ikea sofa bed frame with it. Also, Oxy-Clean. However, Oxy was available in Korea without infomercials, so I bought it before I knew Billy Mays.

    I’m tempted to buy the “Schticky” though – the slap chop guy is so hilarious, and it promises to remove the many cat hairs on my outfits!

    8. Can you count how many times you’ve watched Dirty Dancing? 1. I did watch Dirty Dancing 2 a couple times for the salsa choreography though.

    9. Heroes or villians? Villans. It’s more fun!

    10. Weekly goals: Can’t think of anything right now.

  10. Tania says:

    1. Mood: focused (this is rare)
    2. Your favorite frozen treat? I’m a recovering ice cream addict so instead of that I like to make my own homemade shakes using Amazing Grass Green Superfood, almond milk, ice and whatever else I can find to put in it.
    3. What energizes you? Taking a break like a nap, a walk, or sitting on the fire escape.
    4. Last time you went to the beach? May 1999, went on a Senior Sneak Trip to Florida.
    5. What makeup or beauty products do you use to fight shine? Depends, usually when I’m really shiny my pores are all clogged so that means I need to do my Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask. Other than that using blotting papers helps alot.
    6. What would you do if you had one extra hour of free time today? Don’t know. I actually make time to take breaks and have a moment. For some reason in the summer I get the urge to watch movies so I would probably watch a movie.
    7. Have you ever bought anything after watching an informercial? I bought Sheer Cover after seeing that infomercial several times and I hated it. I do have the bra clip things which are awesome and I have the Turbie Twist which works pretty well. I bought the later two at the store not over the phone.
    8. Can you count how many times you’ve watched Dirty Dancing? don’t know but it is one of those movies that if I’m flipping through TV and it’s on I will watch it. I love Gary Orbach (the guy who plays her dad) he was Lennie on Law & Order. RIP Gary Orbach and Patrick Swayze. Random Info: my friend made a Dirty Dancing reference in a facebook status update and I was the first person to ask him if he carried a watermelon. I had several people like my comment and some who said that I stole it from them!!
    9. Heroes or villians? I seriously LOVE VILLIANS, so complex! I follow Lord Voldemort on Twitter (he’s hilarious if you like a morbid sense of humor). I was so on the Jedi side until I met Darth Maul and now I totally like the Dark Side. I also love The Wicked Witch of the West (go Margaret Hamilton), being from Kansas one has to be an authority on “The Wizard of Oz” for some reason. My fav villian is Alex from my fav movie “A Clockwork Orange” but the actual villian is society itself. The scariest villian is Nurse Ratched from “One Flew Over the Cookoos Nest”. I like my villians just all out evil, she is evil and covers it up with being nice. However, I do love her hair!
    10. Weekly goals: Organize my office, I have a new boss and she’s got boxes everywhere! She’s getting all organized so now I feel the need, plus we need more office supplies and what not so I’m feeling the urge to redo everything. I actually have the urge to just torch all the paper and start all over!!

    1. Mood: Happy!!!!!! Waiting for my basecoat to dry then I’m going to paint my nails butter London “Teddy Girl”! eeee!!!
    2. Your favorite frozen treat? Omg, I have a sweet tooth too! I love those frozen yogurt popscles that are only like 70 calories… I also love those orange popsicles with the cream in the middle… yummy!
    3. What energizes you? Music, mostly!
    4. Last time you went to the beach? Last month! Maybe around the 1st.
    5. What makeup or beauty products do you use to fight shine? Urban Decay De-Slick Setting Spray, works like a charm for me! (i’m super oily >__>

    10. Weekly goals: Practice my photography and blog as much as possible!!

    Le List

    1. Mood:
    Pretty good!

    2. Your favorite frozen treat?
    My absolute favorite is double chocolate chip ice cream from a place called Graeters. There are giant chunks of dark chocolate mixed into chocolate ice cream.

    I don’t keep that stuff in the house, so for every day treats I go with Fudgsicle bars or Skinny Cow Ice Cream Sandwiches. They are both yummy and not too bad in the calore department.

    3. What energizes you?
    A good night’s sleep.

    4. Last time you went to the beach?
    It’s been few years. :-( I would love to go on a beach vacation sometime soon.

    5. What makeup or beauty products do you use to fight shine?
    A combination of Mac Prep + Prime Pressed and MAC Blot Powder. Thanks Karen, for the reccomendations on these. They are great products!

    6. What would you do if you had one extra hour of free time today?
    If it were totally free (in the sense that all my household chores were done) then I’d sit out on the patio and read. Or maybe bake batch of brownies. There’s a new recipe I’ve been wanting to try.

    7. Have you ever bought anything after watching an informercial?
    Nope.

    8. Can you count how many times you’ve watched Dirty Dancing?
    Probably only a handful of times. I remember watching it at slumber parties when I was younger.

    9. Heroes or villians?
    Hm, not sure. Sometimes the villians are more entertaining.

    10. Weekly goals:
    Try to eat more fruits and veggies. I’ve been snacking on a lot of junk food lately and that needs to stop. Also, try and get back to exercising and get on the elliptical a few times this week.

    Have a great day!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Ruchita,

      Oh, I love those Skinny Cow Ice Cream Sandwiches, especially the vanilla. So yum. :)

      I’m glad so you like both the Prep + Prime and Blot Powders! Do you wear them alone or layered on top of a tinted moisturizer or foundation?

      • Ruchita says:

        I usually wear it over foundation and it really helps keep it set all day. Those and the Clean & Clear blotting papers help keep the shine at bay!

    2. Your favorite frozen treat?

    Right there with you on the coconut water fruit floes.

    3. What energizes you?

    Great music (especially seeing live music) and doing something creative

    4. Last time you went to the beach?

    It’s been way too long, probably a few years, but I’m hoping to go to the ocean later this month to remember my Mom on her birthday. She loved the ocean.

    5. What makeup or beauty products do you use to fight shine?

    I don’t really do a lot of powder since it tends to build up and make my pores look enormous, so I’ll use a mattifying primer and then use blotting tissues throughout the day when needed.

    6. What would you do if you had one extra hour of free time today?

    Try to get a few extra errands done.

    7. Have you ever bought anything after watching an informercial?

    Well, if QVC is considered one extended infomercial, then yes.

    8. Can you count how many times you’ve watched Dirty Dancing?

    I think only two or three times.

    9. Heroes or villians?

    I gotta support the heroes.

    10. Weekly goals:

    Try to be kind to myself and stay in a peaceful, positive mood — something I failed miserably at last week.

    7. Have you ever bought anything after watching an informercial? Yes…does QVC count? I bought Mally Volumizing Macara and I’ve since repurchased…a great find. Almost bought Wen but I am glad I held off since it is now sold at Sephora!
    8. Can you count how many times you’ve watched Dirty Dancing? Probably about 10.
    9. Heroes or villians? Neither.

    TGIM, Karen :).

  17. Kim says:

    Happy Monday!!
    1. Mood: Good! It’s hotter than Hades here today and more humid than a sauna but everything seems great when it’s sunny!
    2. Your favorite frozen treat? Strawberry daiquiri? :)
    3. What energizes you? Like you, music, loved ones and some competitive physical activity.
    4. Last time you went to the beach? It’s been almost a year. Now that we have the pool, we don’t get to the beach very often (obviously). We’ll probably go to Maine next month, though.
    5. What makeup or beauty products do you use to fight shine? Tarte’s pressed powder but, more often, a paper towel!
    6. What would you do if you had one extra hour of free time today? Probably sleep or lounge.
    7. Have you ever bought anything after watching an informercial? No.
    8. Can you count how many times you’ve watched Dirty Dancing? It’s so funny you mention this because I made the Hubs watch it on Saturday night. He had NEVER seen the whole thing and I said it was a travesty never to have watched such an iconic film from our youth. I had to pause it and whisper/yell upstairs “come down here right now before you miss ‘no one puts Baby in a corner’! I have it paused but hurry.” He was thrilled. :)
    9. Heroes or villians? Tough call. I have to say I usually cheer for the villians to redeem themselves. I do want good to prevail but I put that extra pressure on the hero to not only save the day but also make sure the villian sees the error of his ways.
    10. Weekly goals: Enjoy the great weather! :)

    • Karen says:

      Happy Monday to you too! Please send some of that heat this way…it’s chilly here out west!

      LOL re: strawberry daiquiri! Does it count as a helping of fruit? I vote yes.

      • Kim says:

        Oh, no! It’s been close to 100 degrees here for the last week. Today it’s supposed to be 88, but with thunderstorms. We’ll keep the rain but send some of the heat to you. :)

        I like where you’re going with the helping of fruit! That’s the only way I can get my daily recommended amount. hee hee! Kidding, of course. But they do make for a nice treat once in a while in the summer. :)

  18. B says:

    1. Mood: pretty mellow but I’ve got quite a bit on my to-do list

    2. Your favorite frozen treat? A tricky one but I love my ice cream in the summertime. In terms of a particular flavour, I’m definitely craving some Polar Paws

    3. What energizes you? Too many to name! A workout, listening to dance tracks in the car and getting into the juicy bits in a good book are just a few

    4. Last time you went to the beach? Made a weekend trip about 2ish weeks ago. Nothing better than the sea breeze and sandy toes to instantly put the mind in relaxation mode

    5. What makeup or beauty products do you use to fight shine? I’ve got dry skin so shine has never really been an issue for me but you can never go wrong with some blot sheets!

    6. What would you do if you had one extra hour of free time today? Go for a walk near the park or around the lake. Mind you this would only happen once the sun starts to set (hello humidity and dry heat!) but its the simple things that mean the most.

    7. Have you ever bought anything after watching an infomercial? Personally no, but my parents have bought quite a few (graty, handy stitch, space bags). As a kid I used to be OBSESSED with the magic bullet commercial, seriously I used to watch that thing like it was a tv show!

    8. Can you count how many times you’ve watched Dirty Dancing? Not a ridiculous amount of times probably 2 or 3. Now ask me about Clueless, The Wedding Singer or A Night at the Roxbury and its definitely a different story!

    9. Heroes or villains? I love a good underdog story but there’s nothing better than a complex well written villain to move the plot along.

    10. Weekly goals: Quite a bit, mostly house keeping things (getting notes together, writing some reports) but I have an aunt coming in town for a couple days so I’ll probably go on a bit of a cleaning spree in anticipation of her arrival

    4. Last time you went to the beach? Hmm, a couple of weeks ago, I think.

    5. What makeup or beauty products do you use to fight shine? I love the MAC Blot Powder as well. Cheapo blotting sheets work well. I’m thinking of trying the Murad mattifier w/SPF, but it’s so darn pricey for a teeny-tiny tube!

    7. Have you ever bought anything after watching an informercial? Nope. But I’ve thought of buying just about everything!

    10. Weekly goals: Eat breakfast everyday (I’m horrible at that), get my muli back to the gym (it’s been a couple of weeks), and spend some time at my mom’s (eating her cooking & hanging out with my brother!).

    7. Have you ever bought anything after watching an informercial? Yes, I bought those silly Dean Martin DVDs a few years back because I love the old variety shows with Frank Sinatra and John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart and Lucille Ball, etc as guests. Silly, I know, but they entertain me still…

    Not too shabby.

    mm… pretty much any kind of ice cream. I am NOT picky. It gets dangerous.
    3. What energizes you?
    eating good food and being with friends.
    4. Last time you went to the beach?
    Last summer, at my special request when I was visiting family in Washington. I wish I wasn’t 12 hours away from the coast!! I hate being land-bound.
    5. What makeup or beauty products do you use to fight shine?
    I typically use Bare Minerals Mineral Veil, reapplying about halfway through the day. I’ve also used Benefit’s Porefessional, and I like how it works, but the slick feel of the formula definitely takes some getting used to!
    6. What would you do if you had one extra hour of free time today?
    I would probably end up reading or just sleeping (ha), but I’ll pretend that I’m a motivated person and that I’d work out or practice with that time! :)

    1. Mood:
    ~Energized. Had a great 3 mile run this morning with a friend, and we did push-ups and pull-ups at the park!

    2. Your favorite frozen treat?
    ~Probably Bruster’s ice cream or fro-yo.

    3. What energizes you?
    ~a great run/workout, doing something fun and different, going out with friends, or reading/watching something inspirational. My latest inspiration is the various running books I’m reading.

    4. Last time you went to the beach?
    ~Not since last year…might head to Sandy Point State Park this week. It’s on the Chesapeake Bay before the Bay Bridge.

    5. What makeup or beauty products do you use to fight shine?
    ~a good primer (I am liking Cover Girl + Olay’s primer lately), and good powder products.

    6. What would you do if you had one extra hour of free time today?
    ~same thing I’m doing now – laundry and watching whatever is on TV.

    7. Have you ever bought anything after watching an informercial?
    ~Not yet…I too, have been tempted by P90X and Insanity, but Comcast had 30 minute Infomercials about each, and I got the gist of how both work…so no need to blow over $200 on workout videos. I would also honestly rather take a class involving both those workouts – it’s too easy to hit the STOP button when watching workout dvd’s.

    8. Can you count how many times you’ve watched Dirty Dancing?
    ~I’ve seen it twice, definitely when I was younger.

    9. Heroes or villians?

    ~Do abs/core workouts.
    ~Keep up a positive and sunny mood.
    ~Enjoy my “staycation” with the hubby this week – we will do lots of different things around here in MD.

There are a few things going on at work that I cannot resolve (my job), and since everyone that I can ask is on vacation right now, I’m kind of over it :D Plus, just sitting here on my computer, and an ant ran up my water bottle (ants are the ones that I can’t deal with, they give me the willies). So, down. Looking forward to the end of the day, but hopefully I can accomplish something by that point.

    1. Mood: Giddy. I went to Sephora today and ended up buying some small things, including one of those Tokidoki balm stains (in Mozzarella)! I adore England and cute things. So just looking at the thing — eee!

    2. Your favorite frozen treat? Right now, it’s the mango shake from this Filipino Restaurant called Pinoy-Pinay. Although the Mocha Mudslide from Coffee Bean and the Mocha Cookie Crumble from Starbucks are in a close second.

    3. What energizes you? A run! But if I don’t have time for that.. coffee fo-evaa

    4. Last time you went to the beach? December >.> Random time to go to the beach! I reeeally need to plan to go to the beach sometime soon though. ~ashamed Cali girl~

    5. What makeup or beauty products do you use to fight shine? Maybelline loose powder, or Body Shop’s oil blotting sheets.

    6. What would you do if you had one extra hour of free time today? Watch an episode of Merlin on Netflix!

    7. Have you ever bought anything after watching an informercial? Eventually, yes. Magic Bullet is so great..

    8. Can you count how many times you’ve watched Dirty Dancing? Nope. I’m sure I watched it countless times when I was younger. ^_^

    9. Heroes or villians? HEROES. Except Maleficent. She is wonderfully evil!

    10. Weekly goals: Well, I was not supposed to buy any makeup-related.. then Sephora happened. Sigh. Other than that, one of my weekly goals is stick to salads and sandwiches for lunch! :)

    1. Mood: Happy

    2. Your favorite frozen treat? Trader Joe’s Carribean Fruit Floes; I still can’t seem to find the coveted Coconut Water ones, they sell out so fast and I don’t live near enough a TJs to check back often…sigh.

    3. What energizes you?
    Fast music. I recently rediscovered podrunner.com where you can download free funky workout mixes — they’re great for doing housework!

    4. Last time you went to the beach?
    Last September. I know. I live in San Diego and I hardly ever get to the beach… but in all fairness, I live in East County and summer is the busiest season so I rarely have time…must make some time. Maybe on my birthday this week-end…nope. Pride Week-end, busiest shopping week-end of the summer, so I’ll be out at the park slinging glitter and henna….

    5. What makeup or beauty products do you use to fight shine?
    I’m pretty happy with my shine. The humidity here is really low so I don’t really have a problem.

    6. What would you do if you had one extra hour of free time today?
    paint. I’m working on a piece for an art swap but it’s mostly in my head b/c I’ve had so little time to actually do fun stuff…

    7. Have you ever bought anything after watching an informercial?
    No. But I did buy one of those carboard cat-scratchers that was on an infomercial when I saw it at Walmart. OUr girls LOVED it.

    8. Can you count how many times you’ve watched Dirty Dancing?
    I’m probably the only person out here who’s never seen the whole movie… hangs head in shame…

    9. Heroes or villians?
    Heroes.

    10. Weekly goals: Enjoy all the gigs, even though I feel overwhelmed by my schedule right now; I know that in the moment, they will all be fun. Make some time to celebrate my birthday — even if I have to work on the day.

  43. So so sorry about your cat Nina—sending you well wishes and positive energy!!!

    Mood:
    Feeling accomplished and hopeful that things are starting to finally look up

    Your favorite frozen treat?
    oooh that’s a toughie. I can’t choose–there are SO many frozen treats a I love. The mango bars a Traders Joes (of course!), smoothies ALWAYS, frozen bananas…

    What energizes you?
    Going on a walk, drinking my morning tea, upbeat music

    Last time you went to the beach?
    Months and months ago–I had to go to take pics for my Geology class assignment. It was a lovely day…

    What makeup or beauty products do you use to fight shine?
    I really need to try MAC Blot, btw–don’t know why an oily girl such as myself has yet to try something that gets rave reviews like Blot does!! I just started using primer again (right now its my CoverFX one, but I’m almost out). I also use a mattifying sunscreen (right now, I’m testing Dermalogica’s new Oil-Free Matte SPF30), and ALWAYS Clean&Clear blotting sheets

    What would you do if you had one extra hour of free time today?
    Relax in bed a snuggle with my dog…reading or watching my favorite show of the moment

    Have you ever bought anything after watching an informercial?
    No, but I’ve come close SO many times–I used to be obsessed with watching informercials (I’m not even kidding) and would want to buy everything, no what what, as long as it was on an informercial. I still freaking want the Magic Bullet

    Can you count how many times you’ve watched Dirty Dancing?
    oooh I can’t even count. Lots and lots and lots and lots

    Heroes or villains?
    Heroes. Disney villians are cool–but in most movies, heroes
