Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll

The Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll for April 1, 2013

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. Mini or maxi dresses?
    Minis. I always feel like a kid playing dress-up when I wear maxi dresses. Plus, I’ve yet to find one that I can wear off the rack without having to get it hemmed first.

    Ah, the trials and tribulations of barely being five feet tall/short…

  2. What’s one of the keys to happiness for you?
    Always remembering that I have a say in the matter — whatever the matter may be. I can either choose to look on the bright side of things, or not.

    Of course, this doesn’t always work, but it’s usually worth the try.

  3. What’s your take on big jewelry?
    I like statement pieces in moderation, like, I think that a single large cocktail ring, a pair of chandelier earrings or a bib necklace can look great…but maybe not all at the same time (which is what a part of me wants to wear).
  4. How do you feel about wearing scarves in spring (and on cool days in summer)?
    Yes! I’m there. Scarves for all occasions. A lightweight scarf can jazz up any outfit, even a simple tank top and jeans or a summer dress. Add hoops and bright sandals, and I’m good. :)
  5. Has anyone ever thrown you a surprise birthday party?
    Nope (hint-hint).
  6. When was the last time you visited your childhood home?
    Yesterday. My mom and dad hosted Easter Sunday lunch for me, El Hub, my brother and his girlfriend. They also extended the invite to Tabs…but he was busy and had to decline (haha!).

    A good time was had by all, and I ate way too much fried food…

  7. Complete the following sentence: when in doubt, ______.
    Shut your mouth, take a deep breath, and wait five minutes (unless it’s a life/death emergency) before you respond.
  8. Have you ever gone through the 10-items-or-less line at the grocery store with more than 10 items??
    Yes…but in my defense, I really thought those 10 separate cans of Gravy Lover’s Friskies would count as one item. I mean, they were all the same chicken and giblets flavor.
  9. Are you left- or right-handed?
    Right-handed for most things, except driving (when I’m chillaxing and driving with just one hand on the wheel).
  10. A beauty product you recently discovered that you really like?
    Skinceuticals Phyto Corrective Gel, because it’s been soothing an area on my chin after a breakout.

To complete the Monday Poll, just copy the following list, and paste it with your answers in the comments.

    Mini!

    Spring: OK-ish. Summer: not cool.

    5. Has any one ever thrown you a surprise birthday party?
    Yes!

    6. When was the last time you visited your childhood home?
    Never! When growing up, my parents had to move a lot due to their job, so there’s not really a place that I can call “childhood home”. I think that is a GREAT thing, though, it made me really unattached to the past! :)

    look online!

    8. Have you ever gone through the 10-items-or-less line at the grocery store with more than 10 items??

    Yes to Blueberries Serum! It makes my skin sooooo smooth… <3

    6. When was the last time you visited your childhood home? – Christmas.
    7. Complete the following sentence: when in doubt, – Take a nap. This explains why I sleep so much. :P

    10. A beauty product you recently discovered that you really like? – Shu Uemura P 332 Soft Coral blush from the spring 2013 collection. Very pretty and versatile.

    By the way, Karen, you totally got me with your April Fool’s joke this year! I was like, wow, that’s so cool she got to meet Ryan Gosling, AND it’s great he’s got such a good sense of humor to name a fragrance after all the “Hey Girl” memes. LOL.

  5. Trisha says:

    1. Mini or maxi dresses?
    Of the two, totally mini dresses. I have so much passionate hate for maxi dresses. I would never wear one in a million years. Same goes for long skirts. If it touches the ground (or gets close to it), I want nothing to do with it.

    2. What’s one of the keys to happiness for you?
    I take a positive spin on nearly everything that happens. I’m like walking optimism. You can always find something good in (nearly) anything.

    3. What’s your take on big jewelry?
    I definitely don’t hate it like I do maxi dresses. ;)

    4. How do you feel about wearing scarves in spring (and on cool days in summer)?
    I’m totally cool with it. Especially if it’s a silk scarf, rather than a thick wool, knitted scarf.

    5. Has any one ever thrown you a surprise birthday party?
    Twice! Once for my 6th birthday and once for my 18th. It’s funny that I’d have so many since I hate surprises. I think the worst thing about surprise parties is the apathy that everyone has to give you beforehand, to keep up the surprise. I remember for my 18th I would talk to my friends and be like, “Wanna do something for my birthday?” and they were like, “meh. I have other things going on,” and I thought “darn, I hope I have a surprise party. Otherwise, I really need a new group of friends.”

    6. When was the last time you visited your childhood home?
    That’s tough. I consider the apartment I lived in from 6 to 17 the “place I grew up,” and I drove through the complex last time I was in town last year.

    7. Complete the following sentence: when in doubt, ______.
    dance it out!

    8. Have you ever gone through the 10-items-or-less line at the grocery store with more than 10 items??
    No way. I’m a stickler for the rules.

    9. Are you left- or right-handed?
    Right-handed! I call it my “main hand.”

    10. A beauty product you recently discovered that you really like?
    The Essie 3-Way Glaze. That beats all other base/top coats.

  6. laura says:

    Mini or maxi dresses? Maxi, I can’t pull off mini with my figure.

    Keys to happiness? Enjoy the little things of life, things of everyday. Like sunshine, a laugh, the last silly thing your little one did, a good desert…

    My take on big jewelry? One piece can look great if the rest of your outfit is plain and simple.

    Wearing scarves in spring? Not a fan. I’d rather wear a sweater.

    Surprise birthday party? Never.

    Last time I went to my childhood home? Last summer.

  7. Christina says:

    1. Mini or maxi dresses? Maxi dresses! While it can be difficult to find one that won’t drag on the floor for me, they just scream summer and they’re so much fun to wear.

    2. What’s one of the keys to happiness for you? Knowing that you are in charge of your own happiness and sometimes you need to be the catalyst to make it all happen (currently in the process of that right now…)

    3. What’s your take on big jewelry? Definitely liking statement jewelry. I do believe it’s all about balance and just having one statement piece at a time.

    4. How do you feel about wearing scarves in spring (and on cool days in summer)? YES PLEASE. Now that I’ve really gotten into the swing of crocheting, I’m working on some cute light pieces for the warmer seasons :D

    5. Has any one ever thrown you a surprise birthday party? Yes, but when I was really young- like kindergarten young! I’d like a surprise birthday party again though…

    6. When was the last time you visited your childhood home? Hmmmm well I did drive near it yesterday. I used to live reeaaaallllyyy close to the church I go to so, whenever I go to church, I know my childhood house is like a minute away.

    7. Complete the following sentence: when in doubt, ______. Fake it till you make it!

    8. Have you ever gone through the 10-items-or-less line at the grocery store with more than 10 items?? Oh, I’m sure I have. It’ll usually only be one or two items over and just play it off like “Oh nooooo I must have miscounted…” and hope it’s okay XP

    9. Are you left- or right-handed? Right-handed! But it would be so awesome to be ambidextrous.

    10. A beauty product you recently discovered that you really like? The Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream! It’s lightweight yet leaves my face so dewy without feeling greasy. It was recently recommended to me by a Sephora worker because I was looking for a good spring/summer face cream.

  8. Heidi says:

    1. Mini or maxi dresses?

    For myself, neither. Not a dress person at all.

    2. What’s one of the keys to happiness for you?

    Accepting people for who they are. When you start thinking that things will be great if only someone would change, you’re on the way to misery.

    3. What’s your take on big jewelry?

    Love it! I’m never drawn to dainty, delicate earrings or necklaces. I love a bold earring or a big pendant.

    4. How do you feel about wearing scarves in spring (and on cool days in summer)?

    Love the look of scarves, no matter the season.

    5. Has any one ever thrown you a surprise birthday party?

    Yes, and I almost didn’t go there. A few years ago a friend of mine threw me a surprise party, and another friend was in charge of getting me over to her house. Well, I thought we were doing something else entirely and was getting more and more cranky as to why we kept stalling, doing other things, and then having to go pick up the friend I thought we were meeting somewhere (the one throwing the party). I was so irritated and annoyed that even when I entered my friend’s house and there were decorations everywhere, and a half dozen of my friends sitting in the living room, it didn’t sink in.

    6. When was the last time you visited your childhood home?

    A few years ago. I ended up driving right by it because whoever had bought it from my Mom had it painted an entirely different color and put in a new fence in the front yard, so I didn’t recognize it!

    7. Complete the following sentence: when in doubt, ______.

    Go with your gut.

    8. Have you ever gone through the 10-items-or-less line at the grocery store with more than 10 items??

    I don’t think so, unless the cashier called me over to that line.

    9. Are you left- or right-handed?

    I’m a righty.

    10. A beauty product you recently discovered that you really like?

    Nuance Daily Resurfacing Pads. Seriously amazing stuff. I may never use a scrub again.

  9. Laura says:

    (sorry the second part is here)
    7. Complete the following sentence: when in doubt, don’t say a thing.

    8. Have you ever gone through the 10-items-or-less line at the grocery store with more than 10 items?? Yea, with maybe 11 or 12 items.

    9. Are you left- or right-handed? Right-handed, but apparently I do some things like a left-handed person.

    10. A beauty product you recently discovered that you really like? Nothing comes to mind. But I’d say I recently discovered I can pull off dark lipstick very well.

  13. Chelsea says:

    1. Mini or maxi dresses? I like knee-length the best, but I have one particular maxi dress I really like. Generally I like Mini over Maxi though, because a lot of Maxi dresses tend to be really unflattering.

    2. What’s one of the keys to happiness for you? Taking me-time out.

    3. What’s your take on big jewelry? Not for me, I feel ridiculous in it. I don’t have pierced ears, and the only jewelry I wear is usually subtle.

    5. Has any one ever thrown you a surprise birthday party? Nope!

    8. Have you ever gone through the 10-items-or-less line at the grocery store with more than 10 items?? Not that I can remember. I make snarky comments to the people who go through the 12-items-or-fewer self checkout at Meijer with a whole cart of groceries.

    9. Are you left- or right-handed? Right handed, for the most part. There are a few things I’m better at left-handed.

    10. A beauty product you recently discovered that you really like? I’m really liking my Clarisonic Mia so far!

  14. Stephanie Smith says:

    1. Mini or maxi dresses? Both, I’m easy!

    3. What’s your take on big jewelry? I have a pin head, so large earrings look too large on me, and I don’t like wearing big rings. However, the watch I’m currently sporting feels huge on me, so I guess I do like it!
    4. How do you feel about wearing scarves in spring (and on cool days in summer)? I love the way they look on other people, love it! But on me, I’ll never do it. It just doesn’t work on me.
    5. Has any one ever thrown you a surprise birthday party? Not a birthday party, but when I was expecting my second child, a couple of my best girlfriends surprised me with a small baby shower. It was one of the best days of my life!
    6. When was the last time you visited your childhood home? Yesterday! I was there allllllll day for Easter! And it was so fun! I visit quite often though, my Grandma lives across the street from my parents, and she’s 92 now, so I try to get over once a week for a visit.

    10. A beauty product you recently discovered that you really like? I really really like the Kirkland facial cleanser wipes that I discovered from you Karen! They don’t break me out, the price is right, and they remove makeup like a dream!

  15. Natasha says:

    1. Mini or maxi dresses?
    Maxi… they look hot, yet cover varicose veins and cellulite…what’s not to love!

    2. What’s one of the keys to happiness for you?
    Enough sleep. When I’m cranky, it’s usually because I’m tired.

    3. What’s your take on big jewelry?
    Love it! In moderation. One piece at a time.

    4. How do you feel about wearing scarves in spring (and on cool days in summer)?
    Love scarves… and even make my own.

    5. Has any one ever thrown you a surprise birthday party?
    No…but then, I hate surprises…

    6. When was the last time you visited your childhood home?
    December. Actually, that was when I visited my mother and my childhood city… Mom doesn’t live in the old apartment any more…the last time I went there was about 6 years ago…

    Feel the fear and do it anyways.

    L’Oreal’s glossy-stain lipsticks… great colors and they feel fantastic!

    Have a great week!
    Natasha recently posted … Sunday Pictures: Happy Easter!

  16. Laura H says:

    1. Mini or maxi dresses? Maxi. I am not a mini dress person; if a skirt doesn’t hit the floor, I am uncomfortable in it. Born about 150 years too late, that’s me.
    2. What’s one of the keys to happiness for you? Penguins.
    3. What’s your take on big jewelry? I like earrings, but cannot do big necklaces or bracelets. Too much chunky in inconvenient places (how -do- people type in those bracelets?!)
    4. How do you feel about wearing scarves in spring (and on cool days in summer)? I am a knitter – I will find any and all excuses to wear scarves and shawls.
    5. Has any one ever thrown you a surprise birthday party? No. Probably because I would kill them. (I do not like surprises.)
    6. When was the last time you visited your childhood home? A few months ago, I think… We’re 900+ miles away, so it’s been awhile.
    7. Complete the following sentence: when in doubt, ______. Type the email, re-read it, and close it. Now type it again, with less rage.
    8. Have you ever gone through the 10-items-or-less line at the grocery store with more than 10 items?? Yes, but by accident I swear!
    9. Are you left- or right-handed? Right.
    10. A beauty product you recently discovered that you really like? It’s not really a product, but rubbing alcohol + my angled eyeliner brush + the new Urban Decay eyeliner palatte is my new best friend. Insta-creme liner!

  17. Megan says:

    1. Mini or maxi dresses? I’m too heavy for both!
    2. What’s one of the keys to happiness for you? Security.
    3. What’s your take on big jewelry? Not really for me.
    4. How do you feel about wearing scarves in spring (and on cool days in summer)? Love it!
    5. Has any one ever thrown you a surprise birthday party? Yes!
    6. When was the last time you visited your childhood home? Oh man…years ago.

    10. A beauty product you recently discovered that you really like? Too Faced Beauty Balm.

  18. Lisa says:

    1. Mini or maxi dresses?
    Ugh, neither. Maxis make me look short, minis make me look fat. I like everything right around the knee.

    2. What’s one of the keys to happiness for you?
    Chocolate, and relaxation.

    3. What’s your take on big jewelry?
    Nothing too big, or it just overwhelms you (unless you’re super tall).

    4. How do you feel about wearing scarves in spring (and on cool days in summer)?
    It’s mostly too hot here for that, but it’s a great garment to stuff in your bag for when it gets cool in the evenings.

    5. Has any one ever thrown you a surprise birthday party?
    No :(

    6. When was the last time you visited your childhood home?
    I went back to New Orleans last year for Mardi Gras, but no childhood home. We were always in rentals, so there’s no particular place I grew up.

    7. When in doubt, make a pro-con list.

    8. Have you ever gone through the 10-items-or-less line at the grocery store with more than 10 items??
    Maybe if I had like 11 or 12 items, and the alternative was to stand behind someone with a whole cartful.

    9. Are you left- or right-handed?

    Happy Monday! :)

    1. Mini or maxi dresses? It’s sort of a toss up. I like the mini because it’s not as restrictive if you have to burst into a sprint (not tripping over it) but the maxi is better for coverage (and not having to keep your legs crossed). If I had to choose between the two, I’d choose sweatpants. ;)
    2. What’s one of the keys to happiness for you? Getting enough sleep. I’m hella cranky without it!
    3. What’s your take on big jewelry? I’m not a fan of wearing it because it feels awkward/in the way. It looks great on some people though and I never tire of telling my friend she looks like the Green Lantern when she wears her chunky, green, pimp-looking ring.
    4. How do you feel about wearing scarves in spring (and on cool days in summer)? I think people who wear scarves always look a bit classier than the rest of us and would encourage you to wear one whenever you wanted.
    5. Has any one ever thrown you a surprise birthday party? Not that I remember. I always get together with friends but I’m pretty sure I’ve always known in advance and it’s not technically a party.
    6. When was the last time you visited your childhood home? Yesterday. We went to pick up the ham after church.
    7. Complete the following sentence: when in doubt, ______. ask someone wiser…. or google it!
    8. Have you ever gone through the 10-items-or-less line at the grocery store with more than 10 items?? Absolutely not and I make sure to glare accusingly at people who do (kidding, but I really haven’t – I’m quite rule-abiding).
    9. Are you left- or right-handed? Right. I think the lefty thing in the car is because it’s more comfy to rest your left arm on the door’s arm rest. Also, if you learned to drive stick when you were young (like me) then you get used to steering with the left. :)
    10. A beauty product you recently discovered that you really like? I know I’m like broken-record-ville, but Becca Beach Tints.

  20. Sandra G says:

    1. Mini or maxi dresses? I actually haven’t worn a dress since elementary school! But if I had to choose, I’d take the mini. Maxis probably wouldn’t look good on my body type. I don’t have the greatest legs either, but it’d be more flattering to wear a mini.
    2. What’s one of the keys to happiness for you? Music! I have to work on my voice and try arranging things on my own constantly, for my own sake and for the glee club I created at my college.
    3. What’s your take on big jewelry? I’m not too much of a fan of those big statement pieces. I once wore a big ring and it looked ridiculous. I like the more smaller, delicate pieces!
    4. How do you feel about wearing scarves in spring (and on cool days in summer)? I’ve never worn a scarf before. I think they’d look good as long as they were bright, fun colors! And if they were thin, too (can’t be wearing a big ol’ hunk of fabric out in the heat).
    5. Has any one ever thrown you a surprise birthday party? Nope, never. Not even a regular non-surprise birthday party.
    6. When was the last time you visited your childhood home? I still live here. Been living here for 19 years!
    7. Complete the following sentence: when in doubt, ______. When in doubt, wing it – you’re bound to get something out of it.
    8. Have you ever gone through the 10-items-or-less line at the grocery store with more than 10 items?? Yes, but only because it’s my mother’s fault. I feel so embarrassed when we get to the line with 15 items.
    9. Are you left- or right-handed? I’m right handed. I tried to teach myself to write and do things with my left but it didn’t work out so well.
    10. A beauty product you recently discovered that you really like? I discovered that I really like BB creams. Well, drugstore BB creams. Well, Maybelline at that. I never thought of myself to like face products that aren’t a blush or bronzer.

  21. camille says:

    1. Mini or maxi dresses? maxi…wearing mini skirts make me feel naked. :/

    6. When was the last time you visited your childhood home? christmas. we're headed home in a week, though! surprise, mom & dad! :)

    7. Complete the following sentence: when in doubt, ______. look it up. i second guess myself, and i like to be sure, so i look stuff up. a lot.

    8. Have you ever gone through the 10-items-or-less line at the grocery store with more than 10 items?? i think so. maybe with one or two items over. i don't like to be that person who has about 20 items, unless it's slow, and the cashier says it's cool.

    9. Are you left- or right-handed? right handed. but i always notice left handed people. and comment. and wish i was ambidextrous.

    10. A beauty product you recently discovered that you really like? Badger lip balm. it's cocoa butter, all natural. But so far, it's the only lip balm that doesn't give my lips a weird skin peeling reaction. (yuck. what's up with my lips?) :(

  25. Katherine G says:

    1. Mini or maxi dresses?
    ~I like both – since I stand at 5’7″ now, I’ve got the height for both. The right maxi can make me feel like a Greek goddess, and the right length mini can make me feel sexy without being skanky. I find Victoria’s Secret has always made great minis and maxis – their minis are just the right length, and their maxis have the Greek goddess look depending on which one you buy.

    2. What’s one of the keys to happiness for you?
    ~I’d say sleep and exercise. It’s much easier to tackle problems head-on when I have had both. But in my job, both can be hard to come by especially when doing a 12 or 16 hour shift. I’ve learned to make do without but I’m not too happy without my beauty sleep and a hardcore workout!

    3. What’s your take on big jewelry?
    ~I like one piece at a time, like a statement necklace.

    4. How do you feel about wearing scarves in spring (and on cool days in summer)?
    ~A silk or light scarf works, because they don’t really look like winter scarves to me anyways.

    5. Has any one ever thrown you a surprise birthday party?
    ~No, and I’m kind of happy they haven’t, since I am not a fan of crowds or attention.

    6. When was the last time you visited your childhood home?
    ~A couple of weeks ago, need to go soon.

    7. Complete the following sentence: when in doubt, ______.
    ~I like your answer – take a deep breath, and take the time to think, except in emergencies, of course. To prep for emergencies though, my advice is to practice everything you can for a given emergency. In my job, I have to know and remember a lot of things, and it does help me react in a very calm manner knowing what to do.

    8. Have you ever gone through the 10-items-or-less line at the grocery store with more than 10 items??
    ~Yup, do it at Walmart all the time.

    9. Are you left- or right-handed?
    ~Right-handed for pretty much everything except driving also.

    10. A beauty product you recently discovered that you really like?
    ~I just bought the UD All Nighter spray on your recommendation from your post about it, the Pixi eye crayon in Peach Pave, and Benefit Creaseless Cream shadow in Holy Smokes. As for what I really like, I am loving Olay’s CC cream. It has nice coverage, plus sun protection, and has the anti-aging stuff in it. Can’t beat that for a light foundation/tinted moisturizer!

I had just worked a very long day in retail. I was verrrry pregnant, hot and cranky. My sister was throwing a pool party. I came home, took a shower, baked brownies. My sis kept calling, when are you coming over? Finally when I got there I was completely shocked!!

    Mini all the way. I am way too short to wear a maxi dress and have it not make me look shorter.

    2. What’s one of the keys to happiness for you?
    FAMILY

  40. Kate says:

    1. Mini or maxi dresses?
    Mini. I’m kind of a mini person, so a maxi dress can just look overwhelming.

    2. What’s one of the keys to happiness for you?
    Laughter. Being able to see the humour in things, alone or with others, is crucial for keeping my perspective, because I’m way too prone to anxiety.

    3. What’s your take on big jewelry?
    I love it, as long as it’s tastefully done. One big statement piece looks less fussy to me than a lot of individual pieces.

    4. How do you feel about wearing scarves in spring (and on cool days in summer)?
    Love ‘em! I find that it’s a great way to change things up by adding a new element.

    No. No matter how many times I drop hints.

    Try to think about something else for a few minutes.

    8. Have you ever gone through the 10-items-or-less line at the grocery store with more than 10 items??

    9. Are you left- or right-handed?
    Right.

    10. A beauty product you recently discovered that you really like?
    Nars Radiant Creamy concealer. A whole bunch of stuff from Nars, actually, but I’m particularly taken with the concealer because I never imagined that I could get excited by a concealer.
    Kate recently posted … making faces :: nars attacks!

    10. A beauty product you recently discovered that you really like? Muse (http://www.musingsofamuse.com/) gave My Beauty Diary face masks great reviews so I picked up a couple of boxes (from walmart.com of all places). My sis in law and I had an in-home spa day while our kiddies were w/their dads. I am LOVING these masks! My face felt super smooth and revitalized and the added bonus is that neither of us broke out. I have sensitive skin so this product is a plus in my book!

    Le List

    1. Mini or maxi dresses?

    It depends on weather I guess. When it is hot summer, mini is my option. But when it is colder like late summer fall or even winter, I would rather wear maxi dresses.

    2. What’s one of the keys to happiness for you?

    Ignore most things happened to me, cuz what it means to you now doesn’t mean to you the same in the future, so why borther care about them.

    3. What’s your take on big jewelry?

    I would say some round historical jewelry, like I had last summer. It is cool, but donot suit most my daily outfit, but my friend like it, gave me compliment.

    4. How do you feel about wearing scarves in spring (and on cool days in summer)?

    I am quite following regular sense, wearing scarves keeps me warm. If no need for that reason, I donot wanna wear it.

    5. Has any one ever thrown you a surprise birthday party?

    Sadly no.(I wish someone did)

    than 10 items??

    Once I remembered, that was late, near closing time in store, that counter was empty, cashier waved her hand, so I went there to pay my stuffs. Other than that time, I always count my items first to make sure I am qualified for fast going through counter.

    9. Are you left- or right-handed?

    Definitely right-handed. Although I need to practice putting nail polish by using my left hand.

    10. A beauty product you recently discovered that you really like?
