The Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll for October 21, 2013

The Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll for October 21, 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 six years. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.

  1. Do you have a diary?
    GURL, I do, and now that I think about it, I kindasorta wish that my ramblings were more profound, because I use my diary mostly to vent, and the venting gets repetitive…

    If my memoirs are ever published (ha!), it’ll have large sections about lame boys I dated, about how I’m always exhausted, about the many times I’ve felt sad or overwhelmed and frustrated with my job.

  2. Best makeup lighting in your house?
    From dawn till about 2, it’s in my office, where the windows face east, so the light streams in and I get lovely, buttery morning sunlight.

    In the afternoon, it’s the rooms on the other side of the house, like my bedroom and the living room downstairs, so I’ll haul my brushes, cameras and other makeup stuff over there every afternoon.

  3. Which do you wear more often, lipstick or gloss?
    Gloss, fo’ sho! I almost always have at least 5-6 tubes of nude gloss in my purse, like some kind of makeup nomad, haha!

    I prefer nude glosses because they go with everything, and I can put them on in the car without having to think too hard.

  4. With whom do you talk the most about makeup offline?
    Um…whoever happens to be standing next to me at a makeup counter? LOL! I bumped into a gal at the Estée Lauder counter last week, and no joke, we talked about blushes for 15 minutes.

    Whatever, I’m chatty. :)

  5. Does the color of a room affect your mood?
    Oh, for sure. I can’t function in rooms with crazy-@ss colors on the walls. I mean, I love the idea of bold wall paints, like deep blues and reds for dining rooms, but for me it’s so distracting in practice.

    I don’t know… I think I need soothing, peaceful wall colors at home.

  6. Do you have any plants around you at work?
    Catnip! — and tons of it. As you can probably imagine, it’s part of the corporate culture here at Tabs the Cat Industries, LLC. :)
  7. Are there any shadows you love except for the fallout?
    Oh, my gosh. So many. But you know, just tap to remove the excess from your brush. Most of the time that does the trick.

    Off the top of my head, I can think of some glittery Urban Decay and Too Faced colors, and a handful of colors from MAC.

  8. How do you feel about nude nail polish?
    I think they can look super cool with glitter on top; otherwise, meh. I figure, if I’m going to wear nail polish, it might as well be something I can see.

    Gimme jewel tones any day of the week!

  9. If you could be invisible for 2 hours, what would you do?
    I’d sneak into the MAC or Chanel offices and do some investigating, heh. Or maybe I’d sneak into RyGos home and peek in all of his medicine cabinets. Or I’d take a long uninterrupted nap. Hard to decide.
  10. What’s your current favorite face product?
    Kate Somerville’s Anti-Bac Clearing Lotion has been a godsend. The active ingredient, benzoyl peroxide, isn’t new by any means, but it has completely changed my skin. Ever since I started using it along with Skinceuticals CE Ferulic, no more painful pimples around my chin.

    I just love the stuff and can’t live without it.

Le List

Now it’s your turn. Just copy and paste the following questions into a comment with your answers. I look forward to reading ‘em! :)

1. Do you have a diary?
2. Best makeup lighting in your house?
3. Which do you wear more often, lipstick or gloss?
4. With whom do you talk the most about makeup offline?
5. Does the color of a room affect your mood?
6. Do you have any plants around you at work?
7. Are there any shadows you love except for the fallout?
8. How do you feel about nude nail polish?
9. If you could be invisible for 2 hours, what would you do?
10. What’s your current favorite face product?

Ugh, I already feel like I’m getting off to a late start. I kind of hate it when that happens…

Oh, well. Nothing to it but to do it! :) Let me know how you’re doing today.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

  1. Ruchita says:

    1. Do you have a diary?
    Not now, but I did when I was younger. It was girly and pink and a small lock on it. I wish I could go back and read what I wrote!

    2. Best makeup lighting in your house?
    Unfortunately, nowhere right now. The layout of our temporary apartment isn’t the best.

    3. Which do you wear more often, lipstick or gloss?
    Definitely gloss. I haven’t worn lipstick in years. Back in the day, I had many tubes of Coffee Bean from Revlon – it was a brownish shimmer.

    4. With whom do you talk the most about makeup offline?
    Hm, no one really. Most of my makeup discussions are with peeps online.

    5. Does the color of a room affect your mood?
    Somewhat. I prefer calm, neutral colors.

    6. Do you have any plants around you at work?
    Not at my cubicle at work. We used to have fresh catnip plants at our house, but had to leave them behind when we moved. The kitties have been relying on the dry stuff for their fix. :-)

    7. Are there any shadows you love except for the fallout?
    Yep, quite a few. I usually do my eyes first and then clean up any fallout with a makeup wipe.

    8. How do you feel about nude nail polish?
    I don’t mind it, but I have a hard time finding colors that work well with my skin tone.

    9. If you could be invisible for 2 hours, what would you do?
    Sneak off and spend some time outside enjoying the fall weather.

    10. What’s your current favorite face product?
    I’ve been using Milani eyeshadow primer and it works just as well as the one from Too Faced.

    Happy Monday!

    10. What’s your current favorite face product? Loreal Youth Code Texture Perfector Day/Night Cream. It smells lovely, the packaging is to die for and it smooths my skin beautifully.

  3. Joni says:

    1. Do you have a diary? – no!

  4. Sun says:

    1. Do you have a diary?
    Nope, never have. Although I guess that I do kinda use FB as an online diary.

    2. Best makeup lighting in your house?
    I live in a window-filled house with great southern, western exposure. I usually do my makeup in my walk-in closet, which has a skylight to illuminate things.

    3. Which do you wear more often, lipstick or gloss?
    Definitely gloss, for sure. It seems I have a tube of gloss lying around just about everywhere.

    4. With whom do you talk the most about makeup offline?
    No one. No one in my family gets it. When we were in SoCal last year, my husband and kids rolled their eyes when I made my “pilgrimage” to Hakuhodo’s showroom in Torrance. They could not understand what the big deal was and why I was so excited.

    5. Does the color of a room affect your mood?
    Definitely. After spending 10 years with bland, off-white walls throughout my house (it was newly painted before we bought it), I couldn’t wait to get some color in when we repainted. Now, we have 8 different colors throughout the house, and I spent a ton of time picking out each and every one.

    6. Do you have any plants around you at work?
    I have potted succulents around my kitchen window sill — does that count?

    7. Are there any shadows you love except for the fallout?
    Fallout for me is a big turnoff. Urban Decay is the worst! I love Dior’s shadows, but they are so expensive!

    8. How do you feel about nude nail polish?
    I cook and clean way too much (and hate wearing gloves) to bother with nail polish.

    9. If you could be invisible for 2 hours, what would you do?
    Go to boutique and try on clothes that I would normally never even think of wearing.

    10. What’s your current favorite face product?
    Can’t live without sunscreen. I wear it every day religiously, whether it’s rainy, foggy, or bright and sunny.

  5. Trisha says:

    1. Do you have a diary? I have dozens of diaries in a box in my storage closet. And all of them only have the first few pages filled. That’s my problem: I really want to diary my life, but I always fall out of the habit right away.

    2. Best makeup lighting in your house? The best lighting in general is in my bedroom. My bathroom is terrible. :(

    3. Which do you wear more often, lipstick or gloss? …balm.

    4. With whom do you talk the most about makeup offline? Lately, it’s been people I’m meeting for the first time. They ask me what I do, and I say that’s I’m a writer and have a beauty blog. Then there’s a ten-minute conversation about makeup (and usually how they don’t wear any or don’t know how to use it.)

    5. Does the color of a room affect your mood? I haven’t noticed any difference.

    6. Do you have any plants around you at work? No. I wish I did! Whenever I get flowers, I put them in my office, though.

    7. Are there any shadows you love except for the fallout? Not that I can think of!

    8. How do you feel about nude nail polish? I love it. Everyone need a good nude, in nail polish and in life. ;)

    9. If you could be invisible for 2 hours, what would you do? Honestly? I can’t think of anything that I’d do invisible that I can’t already do when people see me. :P I’m no fun at this question!

    10. What’s your current favorite face product? Right now, I’ve been wearing Pond’s BB+ Cream every day and loving it. That stuff’s great.

  6. 1. Do you have a diary?
    Not since I was 13 or so. I think I tried to start a Journal about 10 years ago but it didn’t stick.

    2. Best makeup lighting in your house?
    I always do my makeup int he bathroom so I couldn’t really say if another room is better.

    3. Which do you wear more often, lipstick or gloss?
    These days it’s a combo of both. I’m home with the baby all day so when I do get dolled up I go all out and have been rocking lipsticks in the evening a lot more often.

    4. With whom do you talk the most about makeup offline?
    A girlfriend who also loves products. She lives by the Allure Best of Beauty list though and I tend to explore a bit more.

    5. Does the color of a room affect your mood?
    Yes. I prefer cool or neutral tones though. No reds, oranges or yellow for me… unless it’s an Italian or Mexican restaurant and then those colors work :)

    6. Do you have any plants around you at work?
    I always have flowers around the house. Right now I have a couple of fuschia orchids and a gorgeous blue hydrangea.

    7. Are there any shadows you love except for the fallout?
    Nope.

    8. How do you feel about nude nail polish?
    Meh.

    9. If you could be invisible for 2 hours, what would you do?
    Sneak into Paris Fashion Week and sit front row at Chanel.

    10. What’s your current favorite face product?
    Hmmm, I’ve been using my Arcona The Solution Pads a lot to help clear up my last few postpartum zits and start fading the scars of all the preggie-related breakouts I had. I’ve also been loving the Kate Somerville Clinic-to-go pads for the same reason. Those little suckers pack a powerful punch!

    • Actually, if I could be invisible I think I’d try to sneak into a really amazing historical site that you can’t always get too close to on your own and explore. Somewhere like the Coliseum or Stonehenge where access has become really restricted.

  7. Lauren says:

    1. Do you have a diary?- Yes! I’ve kept a diary pretty consistently for 6 years now.

    2. Best makeup lighting in your house?- It’s funny, I have a “warm” light side on one end of my bedroom, and on the other side it’s very “cool” lighting. So it depends how I want the pictures to look.

    3. Which do you wear more often, lipstick or gloss?-Lipgloss, but I’ve been getting more into lipstick now that it’s fall.

    4. With whom do you talk the most about makeup offline?- My boyfriend! Ha ha ha

    5. Does the color of a room affect your mood?-Definitely! Color affects mood profoundly, if the colors in a room are warm I feel a lot more comfortable than stark white or cool toned rooms.

    6. Do you have any plants around you at work?-No, my job is at a coffee shop so there’s not much foliage.

    7. Are there any shadows you love except for the fallout?-Yes, the first one that comes to mind is Urban Decay’s Bordello. The base shade is beautiful, but all the silver glitter drives me nuts!

    8. How do you feel about nude nail polish?-I don’t really like it, I tend to drift towards pinks an reds for nail polish.

    9. If you could be invisible for 2 hours, what would you do?-Venice Beach! I love to look at all the vendors and things, but I hate being bothered by random people.

    10. What’s your current favorite face product?-Garnier’s BB Cream for Oily/Combination skin, although the shade I have now is a little too dark for me now that my tan is gone. (Wah :’( )

  8. Aida says:

    1. Do you have a diary? Not anymore
    2. Best makeup lighting in your house? My beauty room, big windows and daylight light bulbs.
    3. Which do you wear more often, lipstick or gloss? Gloss
    4. With whom do you talk the most about makeup offline? My husband (poor guy)
    5. Does the color of a room affect your mood? Definitely. I like clean, light colored walls.
    6. Do you have any plants around you at work? Yes
    7. Are there any shadows you love except for the fallout? The dark brown shade with gold glitter in Dior’s Rosy Tan quint. That gold glitter always ends up on my cheeks. I always do my eye makeup first, but that glitter is really hard to wipe off.
    8. How do you feel about nude nail polish? I prefer dark colors, but sometimes nudes can be more appropriate.
    9. If you could be invisible for 2 hours, what would you do? Mess with my cats lol
    10. What’s your current favorite face product? Chanel Les Beiges and the Accent blush. But tomorrow I’m going to pick my Guerlain’s Crazy Meteorites (the pressed version) and I have a feeling that might come my favorite :).

  9. amy says:

    1. Do you have a diary?
    I’ve had lots and lots in the past. Right now, I have a few books to write down family experiences and funny stuff we’d all otherwise forget.

    2. Best makeup lighting in your house?
    We live in 4 tiny rooms, so not many options!!!! It’s all the same :)

    3. Which do you wear more often, lipstick or gloss?
    Gloss! I have on great fall lipstick right now (given to me by la sis): Maple Sugar by Gabriel. But I always put gloss on top. Buxom’s my current fave brand.

    4. With whom do you talk the most about makeup offline?
    The teenage daughter of one of my best longtime friends. She knows all the products and appreciates my modest but carefully acquired stash!! Hysterical. Her mom really dislikes makeup, for the most part, which we laugh about. Hubs can take a few minutes a day on the topic, or he’s good for about one extended (20-minute) conversation a week. He finds it amusing. Then he’s done. :)

    5. Does the color of a room affect your mood?
    Hmm, maybe not my mood, but I definitely think in terms of colors. (Like other people think in terms of numbers.) Rooms with the right colors on the walls are great. I rarely like plain white or cream walls. The only thing less inspiring is a flat, bright, off-tone color (has to be nuanced, tailored to the space).

    6. Do you have any plants around you at work?
    Outside! I work near the edge of a forest. Other than that, two spider plants.

    7. Are there any shadows you love except for the fallout?
    A Revlon pan in a shimmery neutral.

    8. How do you feel about nude nail polish?
    Love it, very classy on tips, not so much on toes. Toes usually have to be coral or some other bright color.

    9. If you could be invisible for 2 hours, what would you do?
    Sit in on a board meeting of an organization I want to know more about. Or maybe sit in on my kid’s classroom at school to see what really happens there during the day. Or maybe do a good deed that would be otherwise impossible.

    10. What’s your current favorite face product?
    I’ve been wanting to try Hada Labo. Other than that, I love Annemarie Borlind stuff.

  10. 1. Do you have a diary?
    No :[
    2. Best makeup lighting in your house?
    No where. For some reason, we get this gosh-awful yellow light everywhere. Need to invest in those standing lamps with natural lighting.
    3. Which do you wear more often, lipstick or gloss?
    Lipstick but when I don’t feel like showing off, I go with gloss. Honestly, I think even amount of wear.
    4. With whom do you talk the most about makeup offline?
    Hubster. I dont have many friends, would love to talk to others about it but I feel like many don’t care. :\
    5. Does the color of a room affect your mood?
    Hmmm, sometimes. I think the fact that I dont open the window alot affects it as well. We dont have a bug screen and I really dont want centipedes to multiply in here. Eeek!
    6. Do you have any plants around you at work?
    I’m a stay at home/ housewife. Would love to plant something but my apt gets so dang hot, they dont survive in here.
    7. Are there any shadows you love except for the fallout?
    Nyx/ELF Palettes!
    8. How do you feel about nude nail polish?
    I love it. Fave nudie is Zoya Godiva!
    9. If you could be invisible for 2 hours, what would you do?
    I’d head to the set of The Walking Dead
    10. What’s your current favorite face product?
    Loreal Youth Code day lotion spf30

  11. Elle says:

    Do you have a diary?
    Not lately. Mostly because I’ve looked back at my past diaries and almost had seizures from how many times I cringed at my writing. You tend to write a lot about lame boys you like when you go to an all-girls Catholic school and have extremely strict immigrant parents.

    Best makeup lighting in your house?
    Probably the dining room.

    Which do you wear more often, lipstick or gloss?
    Gloss – it’s more forgiving and klutz-proof.

    With whom do you talk the most about makeup offline?
    My best friend from college. We are both makeup fiends but she’s gotten more into it lately and it is nice to be able to finally talk to someone about it!

    Does the color of a room affect your mood?
    Definitely – I need calming colors when I’m stressed!

    Do you have any plants around you at work?
    A bamboo plant and a small succulent. I need some form of life in Cubicle Land.

    Are there any shadows you love except for the fallout?

    I love a lot of the MAC pigments but sometimes they can be such a pain to work with.

    How do you feel about nude nail polish?
    Only when I’m interviewing. Otherwise, anything goes.

    If you could be invisible for 2 hours, what would you do?

    Too many things to list, but honestly it would be really cool to scare people for 2 hours.

    What’s your current favorite face product?
    Still liking Cetaphil and my NARS gel moisturizer.

    1. Do you have a diary?
    I used to have a book during middle school, and LiveJournal during high school/college. I haven’t kept one since.

    2. Best makeup lighting in your house?
    My bedroom from dawn until about 9AM. Then I have to haul ass to my husband’s office/living room before it’s noon. Our place only faces dawn.

    3. Which do you wear more often, lipstick or gloss?
    I’m more 50/50. It depends on how picky my lips decide to be. Right now they’re sensitive from a morning sugar scrub, so lip gloss right now.

    4. With whom do you talk the most about makeup offline?
    A friend from college, and a monologue with my husband if I see something on TV or the Internet.
    (Me: GUUUURLLL [points to makeup offender] this is a hot mess!
    Husband: [rolls eyes])

    5. Does the color of a room affect your mood?
    Blank white walls make me think of hospitals and dentists offices. I go bonkers if I don’t fill the space with a painting or something. No more white walls!

    6. Do you have any plants around you at work?
    My coworker got me little sprouts of lucky bamboo. There is also the team plants (a chia pet and a large potted leafy thing) we all water regularly.

    7. Are there any shadows you love except for the fallout?
    Not at the moment. I look at all sorts of makeup review sites before I purchase.

    8. How do you feel about nude nail polish?
    Eewww mannequin nails. It’s okay for interviews, I guess. If I’m doing “nude” nails I’ll just put some clear top coat on.

    9. If you could be invisible for 2 hours, what would you do?
    Run around downtown San Francisco or Hillsdale mall or Valley Fair mall looking at what’s in the stockrooms. Naked.

    10. What’s your current favorite face product?
    A homemade combination of coconut and Argan oil. My skin is getting dry again (thanks fall/winter) and I need all the moisturizer I can get.

    I came back from my honeymoon two weeks ago and I’m still recovering. I wanna travel again ;_;

  16. Kim says:

    Happy Monday!! :)

    1. Do you have a diary? No, I used to when I was a kid but not since grade school. When my best friend read it in 6th grade and there was a page devoted to what a jerk she was, it took the fun out of writing down my thoughts! HAHA!
    2. Best makeup lighting in your house? I’ve yet to find it but I know it’s not my bathroom (which is where I put on my makeup every day!)
    3. Which do you wear more often, lipstick or gloss? Definitely gloss.
    4. With whom do you talk the most about makeup offline? No one, really. Though it does come up once in a while with a variety of friends if their liner looks good or they think I look particularly good.
    5. Does the color of a room affect your mood? Absolutely. I’m more disturbed by patterns, though. Busy wallpaper makes me itchy.
    6. Do you have any plants around you at work? Just one poor basket with a couple of different plants. I inherited it from a coworker when she left about 14 years ago. It’s a miracle that it’s still alive. I remember to water it once a month if it’s lucky.
    7. Are there any shadows you love except for the fallout? No, I’ve yet to find a shadow that I’d say I loved.
    8. How do you feel about nude nail polish? I prefer it. Less maintenance and “me but better”.
    9. If you could be invisible for 2 hours, what would you do? It’s sad that I can’t think of a single thing. I must be getting old. Actually, I’d probably move things around and turn lights on and off at my ghosty friend’s house just to freak her out. Though I’m sure I’d give myself away by laughing at her reactions.
    10. What’s your current favorite face product? I really loved the Algenist serum in the 10 day kit (but the full sized bottle doesn’t seem to have the same effect). Maybe it’s just me. :(

    1.Do you have a diary? Nah– sometimes I wish I did, but I write for a living and going home to write even more just feeling way too consuming.

    2.Best makeup lighting in your house? Now it’s my bathroom, because we recently replaced the bulbs. I’d KILL for a proper vanity with natural light-style bulbs, however.

    3.Which do you wear more often, lipstick or gloss? I wear them both pretty equally. The shades are always a pale pink, though. I am NOT adventurous when it comes to my lips.

    4.With whom do you talk the most about makeup offline? My coworkers!

    5.Does the color of a room affect your mood? Not at all. However, the cubicle I work in is nowhere near a window and not having any natural light definitely affects me.

    6.Do you have any plants around you at work? Nope!

    7.Are there any shadows you love except for the fallout? YES– Too Faced especially. But I love the shades too much to give up wearing them completely!

    8.How do you feel about nude nail polish? Sometimes I’ll just paint my nails with top coat because they look more neat and professional than just bare.

    9.If you could be invisible for 2 hours, what would you do? I’d sneak into the West Wing, see what the Prez is up to, and play with Bo and Sunny. :)

    10.What’s your current favorite face product? Oh my gosh, First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. I usually get dry patches on my cheeks in the fall/winter, and this product has made them disappear! And it’s at a totally reasonable price point compared to other high-end moisturizers.

  18. 1. Do you have a diary? Nope. But I did keep a diary as a kid and early teen.

    2. Best makeup lighting in your house? The lighting in my bathroom is pretty good, actually, no complaints!

    3. Which do you wear more often, lipstick or gloss? Lipstick.

    4. With whom do you talk the most about makeup offline? My mom, probably.

    5. Does the color of a room affect your mood? Hmmm, I don’t *think* so but who knows, maybe subconsciously it does.

    6. Do you have any plants around you at work? Nope.

    7. Are there any shadows you love except for the fallout? Some Smashbox eyeshadows thta I have have a bit of fall out but I love the quality of them so much that I don’t (really) mind.

    8. How do you feel about nude nail polish? Pretty! I am going through a nude phase right now :-) Oh that sounds dirty, lol.

    9. If you could be invisible for 2 hours, what would you do? Spy on my boyfriend! Preferably when he’s having a conversation with a male friend about ME! :-)

    10. What’s your current favorite face product? My Inika liquid foundation. The color is SUCH a perfect match, it’s crazy!

  20. Sasha says:

    1. Do you have a diary?
    No, thankfully. I know I’d only end up cringing about what I’d written at a later date!

    2. Best makeup lighting in your house?

    In my bedroom. Now I’m confident my foundation is a perfect match, I’m quite happy to do my makeup under artificial light, though I know it’s technically against the rules!

    3. Which do you wear more often, lipstick or gloss?
    Lipstick only now. I am addicted to Mac’s On Hold and the colour on its own is just perfect. Also, I find it’s usually too windy to wear gloss outside so you end up with your hair stuck to your lips, or worse, hair-strand streaks of gloss all over your face! NOT a good look!

    4. With whom do you talk the most about makeup offline?
    One of my best friends, who is just as obsessed with makeup as I am!

    5. Does the color of a room affect your mood?
    Definitely! I also like calming colours, soft beiges and creams. I’m not too keen on statement colours/walls.

    6. Do you have any plants around you at work?
    No sadly.

    7. Are there any shadows you love except for the fallout?
    My Mac Tempting is the only bad one for fallout. All the others seem fine, including the dark ones. Maybe it’s the glitter?!

    8. How do you feel about nude nail polish?
    Love nude nail polish, but I have to alternate it with fun seasonal colours to keep it interesting!

    9. If you could be invisible for 2 hours, what would you do?
    I can’t believe I’m about to admit this… But I’d rob a bank!!! *blush* Just think of the makeup I could buy with the loot! :-D (side note: I promise I’m not in the habit of robbing banks!)

    10. What’s your current favorite face product?
    Soap and Glory No Clogs Allowed. I love the self heating part and it’s so refreshing!

    10. What’s your current favorite face product? No question the sun, then Strivectin-SD Power Serum for Wrinkles.

  22. Amy says:

    1. Do you have a diary?
    Nope! I used to but not anymore

    2. Best makeup lighting in your house?
    In front of the windows around 4pm. Luckily my apartment has huge windows and a nice big ledge to put my stuff on.

    3. Which do you wear more often, lipstick or gloss?
    lipstick. Actually, tinted chapstick. I don’t love glosses that much. They always feel too sticky to me and my hair gets in the way, etc etc. So I keep pink/nude lipsticks to add some color to my face.

    4. With whom do you talk the most about makeup offline?
    My mom maybe. Or my guy bestie who really doesn’t listen when I start talking about it lol

    5. Does the color of a room affect your mood?
    Yes! My apt walls are white, and I’m okay with that. But eventually when I have a house I want a nice sunny yellow room.

    6. Do you have any plants around you at work?
    Nope. But I have some bamboo at home.

    7. Are there any shadows you love except for the fallout?
    I bought a huge ELF eye shadow palette and the colors are gorgeous but there is definite fallout. But for the price (6 bucks!) it’s amazing.

    8. How do you feel about nude nail polish?
    As long as it’s on the pinky nude side, then I like it. Otherwise, my hands look dead.

    9. If you could be invisible for 2 hours, what would you do?
    hmmmm not sure… haha I really can’t think of anything. Maybe spy on friends?

    10. What’s your current favorite face product?
    The CVS version of Neutrogena nightly calming face wipes.

  23. Trude says:

    1. Do you have a diary? I used to! Then I switched to blogging and social media and that helped a bit, as my diary was always more of a chronicle of what I was up to than anything else. Lately I’ve been too much of a workaholic though, and only make time for a daily one-liner about what I’m grateful for.

    2. Best makeup lighting in your house? My room in the morning, it’s upstairs and faces west. Nice diffused light. :)

    3. Which do you wear more often, lipstick or gloss? Gloss, although I mostly do tinted lip balm these days (heeeeey Baby Lips!).

    4. With whom do you talk the most about makeup offline? One of my besties is a certified esthetician, so we love to chat about makeup.

    5. Does the color of a room affect your mood? Absolutely! And lighting almost as much, I hate fluorescents.

    6. Do you have any plants around you at work? A small pot of mixed baby succulents. Although it’s about time to change them out, they can only live so long in fake light. ;)

    7. Are there any shadows you love except for the fallout? Benefit’s loose powder shadows are great, but there’s serious fallout there.

    8. How do you feel about nude nail polish? The nudest I’ll go is baby pink, and even that is a rare occurrence for me. I’m with you – give me color!

    9. If you could be invisible for 2 hours, what would you do? What wouldn’t I do? But swimming nekkid sounds pretty liberating!

    10. What’s your current favorite face product? L’Oreal’s Texture Perfecting cream. It’s the perfect thing for my in-between teenage and mature lady skin. :)

    eh…sometimes.

    6. Do you have any plants around you at work?

    mischevious things :)

    10. What’s your current favorite face product?
    lush buche de noel :)

  26. 1. Do you have a diary? I prefer “journal”, lol! The word “diary” has always reminded me of words I don’t like to say such as “panties”! Yes, I do have one but I so rarely write in it!
    2. Best makeup lighting in your house? The sunroom gets the most natural light.
    3. Which do you wear more often, lipstick or gloss? Lipstick and lip balm, fo sho!
    4. With whom do you talk the most about makeup offline? My mom! She’s the only person I know “IRL” who cares to hear my thoughts on a particular foundation or eyeshadow palette! Everyone else I know is like, “What is ‘Naked 2′?” (o’;’o)
    5. Does the color of a room affect your mood? A bit, but for me it’s more linked to the cleanliness of said room! I literally cannot sit and do anything if the room I’m in is a mess. I’m a ride or die neat freak, what can I say!?
    6. Do you have any plants around you at work? I have some silk flowers that are really beautiful on my desk at work. I don’t get any natural light at work so real plants would keel over!
    7. Are there any shadows you love except for the fallout? UD Sidecar was the first one that sprang to mind, but it’s still a big love for me even with it’s fallout! I think it’s still totally worth it. :)
    8. How do you feel about nude nail polish? Just like finding your perfect nude lippie, finding your perfect nude polish is a journey! I have found mine though (OPI My Very First Knockwurst – any other ladies with pink undertones might find a friend in this polish, too!) and I love it, but I REALLLLLY love it with a layer of Essie Set in Stones silver glitter over it!
    9. If you could be invisible for 2 hours, what would you do? I would get SO much work done if no one could see me and stop to chat! But that’s so boring. I honestly have no idea! Maybe go to an expensive store and try on clothes, but would the clothes be invisible, too?! So many questions.
    10. What’s your current favorite face product? Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation. I’ve been testing a few different foundations and went back to the LMSC today and wow – what a difference! It truly makes my skin look like it did back when I was a fresh-faced, blemish and dark spot-free 17 year old!

    Have a wonderful week, Karen! Wishing you lots of positivity, gelato, and Tab Tum-Tum Rubs (hereinafter TTTR’s)!

  27. Christine says:

    1. Do you have a diary?
    Yes, but I never write in it anymore.

    2. Best makeup lighting in your house?
    Dining room, hands down. The east wall is lined with windows and stays bright all day since we’re on the second floor.

    3. Which do you wear more often, lipstick or gloss?
    Gloss over lipstick, but stain over gloss. I like things I don’t need to worry about being sticky or rubbing off or having the wind blow my hair into it.

    My BFF – we have similar tastes in makeup and I love getting ready for holidays or parties with her!

    5. Does the color of a room affect your mood?
    I think so. I get very happy with lots of color. It doesn’t necessarily have to be bright, but plain white walls make me feel like I’m stuffed in a box. When it came time to paint the place I’m in now, I went all out. My favorite room is the dining room, which is a beautiful, rich blue-teal.

    6. Do you have any plants around you at work?
    I work outside, so yes. :) Just today I took one of my dog walks through the community garden, which are still in bloom!

    Yes! I love my Stila In the Lights palette but I find the glittery ones have tons of fall out.

    8. How do you feel about nude nail polish?
    I like it. I have one from Zoya that has a very faint shimmer to it. It makes my nails look clean and perfect for things like job interviews.

    9. If you could be invisible for 2 hours, what would you do?
    Drive around and freak people out. :D

    10. What’s your current favorite face product?
    I just got the Almay CC cream and I’m loving it. My skin hasn’t freaked out from it (Maybelline was awful for my skin) and my skin just looks really nice and fresh without having a lot of makeup on.

  28. Ana says:

    When I was a child but idk where it is :( so sad!

    2. Best makeup lighting in your house?

    Lipstick! I used to love glosses but I find them uncomfortable to wear.

    Hmmm probably a couple of friends who also watch youtube beauty videos LOL or one of my best friends when she goes to buy makeup.

    Classy and simple.

    My Tarte Off-the-cuff blush palette :D

  29. Majick says:

    1. Do you have a diary? I have a journal but it’s mostly rants that I cannot comfortably tell anyone. It’s a place to blow off steam but when I go back and read it sometimes it’s sad. It does help me remember situations that I may have blocked because they sucked. I also make a conscious effort to write good things in it too.

    2. Best makeup lighting in your house? I have true light lightbulbs in the bathroom off my bedroom.

    3. Which do you wear more often, lipstick or gloss? both equally but I like color
    4. With whom do you talk the most about makeup offline? My posse at Ulta. Or, anyone who will listen. Usually they just say, “that’s nice dear…” while backing off slowly. LOL

    5. Does the color of a room affect your mood? absolutely! my living room is bright yellow and makes me happy. My front room is dark red with huge windows, a nice quiet room for reading or watching nature. The kitchen is all white, with brown/black countertops and a peach color tile floor with brown grout – tons of new but mostly old glass vases etc. line the top of the cabinets for color. Master bedroom is beige suede finish with an antique red floral print carpet. If I seriously had to repaint, I would pick the same colors, I just never get sick of them.

    6. Do you have any plants around you at work? African Violets, 2 philedendrons I saved from the garbage, an orchid (bloomed once, now I’m waiting LOL), and aloe, and a bunch of cactus that my husband made me bring in to the office becuase there was no room to bring in our plants at home. jeesh!

    7. Are there any shadows you love except for the fallout? Urban Decay comes to mind because I have passed on palettes because of too many glitter bombs.

    8. How do you feel about nude nail polish? I can never find the right color. I picked one the other day that I thought was Suzi says Feng Shai and it was a really perfect nude for me but when I checked out the color online it was BLUE? ROFLMAO so, I stay pretty clear of nudes. Still don’t know the real color of that polish.

    9. If you could be invisible for 2 hours, what would you do? WOW, loaded question…hmmm, I got nothin’. Don’t want to know what people say behind my back, don’t care, they should be big enough to say it to my face. Don’t want to spy, might find out something I can’t un-find out. WAIT- I’ll go with what a few others have said. Follow around my ghost hunter friends and freak them out. Yep, that’s the best. LOL

    10. What’s your current favorite face product? IT cosmetics cc cream spf 50, oh or SMashbox cc cream.

    7. Are there any shadows you love except for the fallout? No. I do the tap thing.
    8. How do you feel about nude nail polish? NO! I refer to it as “old lady polish!” I want bright or dark or neon nails. I’ve got a bottle or two of nude, and I’ve occasionally worn it, but it just doesn’t feel “right” to me.
