The Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll for January 6, 2014

The Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll for January 6, 2014

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 seven years. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.

  1. What’s one lipstick you never get tired of?
    MAC Impassioned. It still takes my breath away after all these years…
  2. A fear you’d like to conquer?
    Honestly, sometimes I feel like I’m afraid of doing things the right way, if that makes any sense at all. I just want to get out of my own way in 2014 and stop with the self-sabotage. No more working so late that I’m wasted and tired the next day, no more procrastinating in the mornings — stuff like that.
  3. How often do you curl your lashes?
    Every. Single. Day.

    Mine are pin straight!

  4. What’s one thing you’ve been putting off doing?
    Going to the optometrist… I desperately need new contacts. I cam hartly see teh keybpard anumore. :)
  5. Best celebrity to be trapped on a desert island with?
    I’m sure RyGos would be lovely company (and easy on the eyes), but from a survival standpoint, Survivorman’s Les Stroud would probably do more to keep me alive and get me home in (hopefully) one piece.

    GO LES!

  6. Something beautiful (anything at all)?
    The sound of wind chimes tinkling in the wind, the quiet early mornings in my neighborhood right before the sun climbs over the horizon, El Hub and Tabs napping together peacefully on the couch.
  7. Would you rather wear a dress or pants?
    A dress, for sure. But it has to be something comfortable — not binding — with pockets.
  8. Your favorite comfort food?
    Grilled cheese sandwiches, preferably with tomato soup on the side.

    El Hub is no chef (sorry, babe!), but the man makes a mean grilled cheese.

    It’s perfection! I’m telling you, girls (and guys), if you can, marry a man who makes a good grilled cheese sandwich.

  9. What’s a fragrance/scent that reminds you of high school?
    Oh, gosh, CK One… In senior year everyone and their mother wore that scent.
  10. What’s one thing you did last weekend?
    Rented Don Jon and thought, eh, it was OK. I think it tried to be more profound than it actually was.

    It wasn’t the explicit content that bugged me. I just thought a lot of the dialogue fell flat. I liked Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s acting and directing, but the movie didn’t rock my world. In this case, I have to politely disagree with the Rotten Tomatoes rating of 81%.

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. What’s one lipstick you never get tired of?
2. A fear you’d like to conquer?
3. How often do you curl your lashes?
4. What’s one thing you’ve been putting off doing?
5. Best celebrity to be trapped on a desert island with?
6. Something beautiful (anything at all)?
7. Would you rather wear a dress or pants?
8. Your favorite comfort food?
9. What’s a fragrance/scent that reminds you of high school?
10. What’s one thing you did last weekend?

First poll of the year, buddy! I think we should commemorate the occasion with extra coffee. :)



A lot more coffee.

I had a tough time falling asleep last night, so I’m a little groggy this morning. The caffeine will help, though, I’m sure.

Have a good one today. Your nephew says, “Mrow.”

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

    1. What’s one lipstick you never get tired of?
    Ooh thats a hard one. I love MAC’s Heartless from the Venemous Villains collection for a really great red lip. Not too cool, not too warm.

    2. A fear you’d like to conquer?
    Having anxiety over whether or not I will make it as a zookeeper. It’s hard because there are so many people and only so many zoo’s plus I really want to stay close to home and that limits me down to two zoos, that are both highly competitive.

    3. How often do you curl your lashes?
    Not very often. I’m lazy and my lashes are thankfully very long and pretty curled already.
    4. What’s one thing you’ve been putting off doing?
    Finding a second job. Le sigh. Anxiety again.

    5. Best celebrity to be trapped on a desert island with?
    Thoroughly agree with Ry Gos, but I would be more likely to either Bear Grylls or Les Stroud too. Though gimme some Johnny Depp and I’d be happy too.

    6. Something beautiful (anything at all)?
    The sweet faces on my favorite tiger cubs; Berani and Dumai. The sound of them chuffing at me and cooing at me when they see me because they want me to scratch them through the fence.

    7. Would you rather wear a dress or pants?
    I love my sundresses, but I’m more often found in a great fitting pear of jeans or shorts.
    8. Your favorite comfort food?
    Prawns, onion rings with a side of tartar sauce, and a big glass of lemonade. yum yum yum!
    9. What’s a fragrance/scent that reminds you of high school?
    Britney spears curious. Too sweet for me , but everyone wore it.
    10. What’s one thing you did last weekend?
    Worked at my zoo on Sunday, then rented the Lone Ranger. The crazier Johnny acts, the more I love him.

  2. Ruchita says:

    1. What’s one lipstick you never get tired of?
    Um, Chapstick? :- I’m more of a gloss girl. Although Revlon Coffee Bean is a nostalgic color – it reminds of me of high school and college.

    2. A fear you’d like to conquer?
    To be more open with talking about my thoughts/feelings.

    3. How often do you curl your lashes?
    Every time I do my makeup, even if it’s just a quick 5-minute face.

    4. What’s one thing you’ve been putting off doing?
    Cleaning up my closet. I’ve got clean clothes all in a basket, but I haven’t actually put them away yet.

    5. Best celebrity to be trapped on a desert island with?
    One of those guys that do those travel/survival shows.

    6. Something beautiful (anything at all)?
    In the fall/winter, when the leaves are off the trees, the sunrise always looks beautiful behind the bare trees. The back of my apartment faces east, so i have a nice view in the morning.

    7. Would you rather wear a dress or pants?
    Dress. It’s so much easier to put on just one piece of clothing and be done.

    8. Your favorite comfort food?
    Any type of Indian food, especially my Mom’s cooking. Chocolate chip cookies.

    9. What’s a fragrance/scent that reminds you of high school?
    Actually this may be from college, but the Sweet Pea scent from Bath & Body Works.

    10. What’s one thing you did last weekend?
    Bought a ceiling fan for our new house and looked at some new living room furniture. We’re about a month away from moving. I’m getting excited!

    Happy (belated) New Year and hope you’re staying warm. It’s currently a balmy -6 degrees in my neck of the woods. :-)

  3. MM Curator says:

    1. What’s one lipstick you never get tired of? Armani Rouge d’Armani Beige 100 – perfect nude for me.
    2. A fear you’d like to conquer? – Driving. I can drive to a few places but I’m still too terrified to get on a highway.
    3. How often do you curl your lashes? – Every day.
    4. What’s one thing you’ve been putting off doing? Going to the dentist, ugh.
    5. Best celebrity to be trapped on a desert island with? Jon Stewart – cute and he’d make me laugh.

    7. Would you rather wear a dress or pants? Dress!
    8. Your favorite comfort food? Pizza.

    10. What’s one thing you did last weekend? Dismantled the Christmas tree and put away the rest of the Christmas decorations – I was so sad!

  4. Stephanie Smith says:

    1. What’s one lipstick you never get tired of? Clinique’s Black Honey Almost Lipstick. Works on everyone! Doesn’t look too fussy, it’s beautiful!
    2. A fear you’d like to conquer? I want to be more brave, last week the family took a trip to Knott’s Berry Farm, and the husband made me go on this awful awful ride. I swear I almost passed out while waiting. I had to take off my glasses so I couldn’t see what was happening. It wasn’t as terrible as I thought it would be, but I wish I wasn’t such a wuss to begin with!
    3. How often do you curl your lashes? Never. I have an eyelash curler, but I just don’t use it.
    4. What’s one thing you’ve been putting off doing? Renewing my driver’s license. It hasn’t expired yet, but it will, and I need to do it, I’m just lazy. I need a haircut and new glasses too.
    5. Best celebrity to be trapped on a desert island with? Clooney, because he’s funny and I think that a sense of humor would be an asset on a desert island.
    6. Something beautiful (anything at all)? The pattern on my turtle’s shells. Every time I see them I think to myself that I’d love a top with that pattern on it.
    7. Would you rather wear a dress or pants? Pants, specifically exercise pants. Because they’re comfy, not because I want to exercise! LOL!
    8. Your favorite comfort food? Chocolate chip cookies!
    9. What’s a fragrance/scent that reminds you of high school? CK One also! Or that Drakkar Noir, which was all the rage with the boys back then!
    10. What’s one thing you did last weekend? Well, I thought about taking down my Christmas trees, THOUGHT about it! Today might be the day! ha ha ha

  5. Katherine M says:

    1. What’s one lipstick you never get tired of?
    ~I am a sucker for Maybelline Baby Lips. I do not wear lipstick a lot – I am more of a sheer color lip balm kinda girl. I will sometimes favor a pretty or tasty lip gloss over balm, though.

    2. A fear you’d like to conquer?
    ~Showing all of me to people in scary situations. If I feel like it’s not a nice, happy place, I tend to shut down my personality as a defense mechanism. I need to just put my happy go lucky, quirky self out there all the time and not give a flying fart in space what people think. It’s hard because I truly care about everyone and want to be liked as much as I like other people.

    3. How often do you curl your lashes?
    ~I never do…I don’t even own an eyelash curler. I am blessed with thick, long Italian lashes – usually one coat of a good mascara will do the trick.

    4. What’s one thing you’ve been putting off doing?
    ~Today, putting off cleaning for a bit. But yesterday hubby and I cleaned out the closet in our bedroom and we got rid of a lot of stuff and will be giving away a lot of stuff. It felt great to do that. I have also put off going through some of my moving boxes but also did that (on a few boxes anyways) recently.

    5. Best celebrity to be trapped on a desert island with?
    ~Hmmmmm…I would love to hang out with Kristin Kreuk (she’s in Beauty and the Beast and was Lana in Smallville), or Keira Knightley. They are both down to earth, awesome actresses and I would likely be good friends with them if they weren’t famous and lived by me.

    6. Something beautiful (anything at all)?
    ~Freshly fallen snow, hiking on one of the nearby mountains, ice floating down the Monocacy River with snow on its banks, White Horse rapids on the Potomac River, Great Falls, horses playing in the pastures, and watching my hubby nap while watching tv.

    7. Would you rather wear a dress or pants?
    ~I love a good maxi or sun dress, but you will most likely find me in sweatpants, workout pants, or jeans.

    8. Your favorite comfort food?
    ~I also love grilled cheese and tomato soup, but being Italian I will not say no to pasta. Especially homemade pasta with a meaty, hearty tomato sauce.

    9. What’s a fragrance/scent that reminds you of high school?
    ~Hmmmm…probably Hollister’s signature scent. Everyone wore Hollister and Abercrombie in high school (except me…I think I may have worn Hollister jeans though).

    10. What’s one thing you did last weekend?
    ~Organized our bedroom and closet, took down the Christmas tree and somehow got it out on the driveway for pickup. I also get overwhelmed by organizing things, Karen, so my best trick for getting it done is to take it one room at a time and be ruthless. Hubby and I live in a townhouse so we don’t have a ton of space to store things we *may* want, especially if we want the house to look clean and organized. One good tip I read about was that if you are not sure about it, keep in a box for a year, and at the end of that year, reevaluate. Or if a whole room is overwhelming, I take it one box or one closet or desk at a time.

  6. Alice Ann says:

    1. What’s one lipstick you never get tired of? NARS Funny Face, it was my first fuchsia lipstick and I love it to this day.
    2. A fear you’d like to conquer? Fear of the future, I have terrible anxiety about the ‘what ifs’ in life.
    3. How often do you curl your lashes? Never, I use Dior Overcurl mascara which adds just enough curl for me.
    4. What’s one thing you’ve been putting off doing? Starting the application process to nursing school.
    5. Best celebrity to be trapped on a desert island with? Some manly survivalist type, I suppose.
    6. Something beautiful (anything at all)? This morning the sky was pink! It was magical.
    7. Would you rather wear a dress or pants? Dress, definitely. I don’t think I’ve worn pants in over a year.
    8. Your favorite comfort food? Kitchen sink type salad, with grains and all different types of greens and veggies.
    9. What’s a fragrance/scent that reminds you of high school? I have to also go with CK One, the scent of the early 90s.
    10. What’s one thing you did last weekend? I went to Fort Funston with my dog, it was her first time there. It’s a beautiful park with a beach in SF, one of my favorite places in the Bay Area.

  7. lolamd says:

    1. What’s one lipstick you never get tired of? I love this lip balm from Korres that gives my lips a bit of color.

    2. A fear you’d like to conquer? I would say my fear of asking questions I really don’t want to hear answers to. I know it sounds strange but I often avoid it as I don’t want to deal with it and I end up making myself anxious and stressed out.

    3. How often do you curl your lashes? If I had lashes, I would curl. I have been cursed with sparse lashes whereas my son has beautiful long lashes.

    4. What’s one thing you’ve been putting off doing? Cleaning the house. It is such a mess.

    5. Best celebrity to be trapped on a desert island with? Charlie Hunnam…hehe..He is so gorgeous.

    6. Something beautiful (anything at all)? My son when he sleeps (he looks so peaceful), my son when he laughs, early morning in Central Park (i run early), snow when it first falls…

    7. Would you rather wear a dress or pants? Dress

    8. Your favorite comfort food? Popeye’s fried chicken. That stuff is so good.

    9. What’s a fragrance/scent that reminds you of high school? Really can’t remember in all honesty.

    10. What’s one thing you did last weekend? Took a nap..lol

  8. Kiara says:

    1. What’s one lipstick you never get tired of?
    MAC Lady Danger. I have another one too, Girl About Town! So pretty and bright both of them.
    2. A fear you’d like to conquer?
    Not really a fear but, I’d like to try more foods. I never try anything new and just stick to what I like. I don’t like veggies at all (just lettuce, tomato, corn and I think that’s it, and cucumber don’t really know if its a fruit or vegetable) but I’m trying to have a healthier diet so I have to eat them.
    3. How often do you curl your lashes?
    Whenever I wear makeup.
    4. What’s one thing you’ve been putting off doing?
    Right now, finish my workout. Did half, and then got distracted and ended up here.
    5. Best celebrity to be trapped on a desert island with?
    Bear Grylls popped immediately into my mind, but I don’t want to be eating worms or elephant poop or urine, so maybe not him, I refuse. Chris Hemsworth can definitely protect me with those huge muscles of him so…I’d say Chris.
    6. Something beautiful (anything at all)?
    Yeasterday I saw the movie about Ritchie Valens’ life (La Bamba) and I really liked it! The ending was sad though :( I didn’t know much about who the singer of La Bamba was!
    7. Would you rather wear a dress or pants?
    Pants.
    8. Your favorite comfort food?
    Too many to name them all. Pizza, burguers!!, lasagna, fries, and so much more.
    9. What’s a fragrance/scent that reminds you of high school?
    DKNY Delicious as I wore it quite a lot at the beginning of high school. Not that it has ended yet for me though:p 6 months to go!
    10. What’s one thing you did last weekend?
    Watch La Bamba!

    2. A fear you’d like to conquer?
    I’ve been writing a novel for the last two years but I’m always scared it’s going to suck so I procrastinate and procrastinate. I’ve heard every writer goes through that phase every time they write a book though so my goal in 2014 is to just go for it!

  11. Kylie says:

    1. What’s one lipstick you never get tired of?
    None! I am not a lipstick girl. Although my lips are super chapped now, so I’m loving my Fresh Sugar lip balm!

    2. A fear you’d like to conquer?
    After having a mouse in the house last week (eek!), I’d like to get over my fear of taking a fright so easily. I’m so jumpy!

    3. How often do you curl your lashes?
    Usually just for special occasions. Plus, my Sally Hanson one just broke, so I need to buy another. That’s pretty low on the makeup priorities list, however.

    4. What’s one thing you’ve been putting off doing?
    Ugh, too many things. Getting a firm hold on both reasonable exercising and my finances are top of the list, however.

    10. What’s one thing you did last weekend?
    Watched the Rangers absolutely kill it Saturday night against the Maple Leafs!

    As an aside, I also saw Don Jon and also thought EH. Thought the ending was dumb and agreed on the trying to be more profound than it was.

    No hesitation: Dior Lipstick Addict #680 Millie. I’m in love!
    2. A fear you’d like to conquer?
    The more I fly, the more I am afraid of planes. I wish I could fly without being afraid of a crash every single minute!

    Never! I never felt the need to do so. But I wear mascara every day (except those sundays when all I do is chill on my couch…)

    Pasta. With a lot of cheese!

    Eau de mûre (blackberry) by Yves Rocher. the cheap scent I could afford at that time, but smells very good!

  15. Bree says:

    1. What’s one lipstick you never get tired of? I’m not a big lipstick person, but Fly High BM Moxie is one of my favs

    2. A fear you’d like to conquer?
    Can’t say I really have any…snakes, heights….they should remain fears. I recently concurred my fear of giving a horse a shot. Wasn’t bad the first time but I almost passed out the second time when I couldn’t get the needle in. I think I’m good for awhile.

    3. How often do you curl your lashes?
    Never! I gave up on eye lash curlers mine are curly enough!

    4. What’s one thing you’ve been putting off doing?
    Cleaning

    5. Best celebrity to be trapped on a desert island with?
    Charlie Hunnam just because he’s so damn sexy

    6. Something beautiful (anything at all)?
    My horses! They are so pretty, smart, full of personality, & spirit. They are a cure all to a bad day. They have taught me love, hard work, and dedication. The connection we have is a very beautiful thing.

    7. Would you rather wear a dress or pants?
    I am a jeans girl all day long. But my nighty is a t-shirt dress

  16. Stephanie A. says:

    1. What’s one lipstick you never get tired of? I will echo a fellow Stephanie in comments above and say Clinique Black Honey! I don’t even want to say how many years I’ve been wearing it!
    2. A fear you’d like to conquer? I honestly can’t think of one. I don’t mean to sound the way I know I’m going to sound (does that make any sense?????), but I feel as though the things I’m afraid of are perfectly fine to be afraid of (i.e. snakes!)–they are not affecting my life!
    3. How often do you curl your lashes? Now, everyday. However, this has become an everyday occurrence only within the last month or so. I feel as though I’m pretty handy w/the makeups, but lash curling has been hard for me to get the hang of! I promised myself to keep at it, and I think I may just be getting better!
    4. What’s one thing you’ve been putting off doing? Cannot narrow down to one! I feel like my life is one big incomplete to do list right now!
    5. Best celebrity to be trapped on a desert island with? Forget being practical, I want Morris Chestnut. The things I would do…
    6. Something beautiful (anything at all)? As annoying as they are, the sight of my 2 rotten kitties when they calm down and snuggle together for a nap.

    8. Your favorite comfort food? Mashed potatoes! With lots of butter!

  17. Ellise says:

    1. What’s one lipstick you never get tired of?
    I’d have to say Persian Melon by revlon. I can’t help but smile when I see the color. I love its intensity and how inexpensive it is.

    2. A fear you’d like to conquer?
    I’d like to conquer my fear of the unknown. Things outside of my comfort zone make me anxious and I always say no to things I should be saying yes to. I need to put myself out there more.

    3. How often do you curl your lashes?
    Hardly ever, I’m way too lazy.

    Really looking for a real, full-time job instead of part-time retail type work.

    Chocolate cake. Preferably McCain’s Deep and Delicious brand.

    10. What’s one thing you did last weekend?
    Cleaned and redecorated my bedroom!

  18. Andria says:

    1. What’s one lipstick you never get tired of?
    I really don’t wear much lipstick. It tends to wear off my lips easily, leaving a ring. I usually wear a colored lip gloss. I also can’t afford to spend a fortune on cosmetics. The lip gloss I wear the most is L’Oreal’s Infallible Plumping 6 hour lip gloss in Plumped Mauve 406.

    I also love my AVON Extra-lasting lip gloss in Longtime Lilac.

    2. A fear you’d like to conquer?
    My fear of heights. I cannot even climb a ladder.

    3. How often do you curl your lashes?
    Every time I wear make-up!! I don’t wear make-up if I am just lounging around the house.

    4. What’s one thing you’ve been putting off doing?
    Getting a mammogram. My mother even had breast cancer last year. Everywoman should have a baseline by age 40! I can’t be anywhere near that age!!

    Ladies, do as I say. Not as I do.

    5. Best celebrity to be trapped on a desert island with?
    I wouldn’t know. I have never been trapped on a desert island before, let alone with a celebrity.

    6. Something beautiful (anything at all)?
    The ocean

    7. Would you rather wear a dress or pants?
    I would rather wear a dress. I actually love dresses. They aren’t always in place, though.

  19. Katie F says:

    1. What’s one lipstick you never get tired of?

    MAC Viva Glam I. Applies like a dream, goes with almost anything (in my wardrobe at least), makes me feel both fancy and powerful, and everything goes to charity! Can’t beat that.

    2. A fear you’d like to conquer?

    I think I’m ok with all my fears…I’m not afraid of anything major, like public speaking or driving.

    3. How often do you curl your lashes?

    Never! I have long, fairly curled lashes, thankfully, because eyelash curlers are terrifying.

    4. What’s one thing you’ve been putting off doing?

    Making an appointment for a physical. Blech.

    5. Best celebrity to be trapped on a desert island with?

    Hmm…Richard Branson? He owns an airline, he can just fly us out.

    6. Something beautiful (anything at all)?

    I just got MAC Hellbound lipglass and Inglot AMC Matte Eyeliner in red (79), and they are killing me with how pretty they are!

    7. Would you rather wear a dress or pants?

    I like both, but I usually wear pants…more comfortable and versatile for me.

    8. Your favorite comfort food?

    Mexican-style pinto beans, straight from the pot. My mom puts some on every time I come home to visit.

    9. What’s a fragrance/scent that reminds you of high school?

    Clinique Happy, everyone was wearing that stuff. I’m not fan.

    10. What’s one thing you did last weekend?

    Nothing fun. :( My grandpa just passed away, so I’ve been trying to take care of the house and provide emotional support while my parents deal with that (fortunately I was home for the holidays and could extend my stay to help out).

  20. Chris25 says:

    1. What’s one lipstick you never get tired of? Hmmm, no lipstick but there was a lipgloss in MAC’s holiday collection Boy Bait that is perfect for me.
    2. A fear you’d like to conquer? I don’t think I have major fears…
    3. How often do you curl your lashes? Since I learned it about a year ago every time I wear mascara (6 of 7 days a week), it makes such a difference.
    4. What’s one thing you’ve been putting off doing? Sorting my papers…
    5. Best celebrity to be trapped on a desert island with? I assume there will be food, a boat etc. and then it should be George Clooney, funny and entertaining.

    8. Your favorite comfort food? Pancakes, cheese on a baguette, cheesecake…
    9. What’s a fragrance/scent that reminds you of high school? Eternity

    Have a good week everyone!

  22. 1. What’s one lipstick you never get tired of? My Lollipops Joulie Poupée lipstick. Rapsberry pink, so purty!

    2. A fear you’d like to conquer? I don’t really have a fear, but I would like to be able to let go of my worries, and be more trusting.

    3. How often do you curl your lashes? Never. I don’t feel like I really need to.

  23. Melissa says:

    1. What’s one lipstick you never get tired of?

    Well, it’s not actually lipstick, it’s more tinted lip balm. I love the Fresh Sugar tinted lip treatments in Passion and Rose! However, I have made it a resolution to start wearing more lipstick this year because as I started wearing the tinted lip balms, whenever I didn’t wear one, I hated how I looked without lip color. So when I’m feeling better later in the week, the husband and I are going to head into the city and I’m going to drop in to Sephora and Nordstrom and I’m going to get some lipsticks! Woohoo!

    2. A fear you’d like to conquer?

    Getting out more. I had reconstructive foot surgery a year and a half ago and I was on bed rest for a really long time and it turned me into such a homebody. I mean to the point that I got dependent on Safeway home delivery and just ordered everything online! I only really ever left the house for my Dr appointments! I want to get out and start experiencing more things again! I would also like to stop procrastinating. It’s been bad since I had my surgery. I sort of developed this mentality of “Oh, I have a lot of time to do it” because at the time I did. I just had months upon months of absolutely nothing to do but rest and relax.

    3. How often do you curl your lashes?

    Every single day! Multiple times a day! My lashes are also super straight and they will not hold a curl for very long, even with waterproof mascara. So I do it a few times a day.

    4. What’s one thing you’ve been putting off doing?

    Going to the store to get soup, OJ, and gatorade. My husband and I are both sick. He took care of me and I’m starting to clear up but now he’s getting it! I’m still feeling a little crummy, and he’s feeling worse than I am, so today I’ll have to go to the store and get some feel better supplies haha.

    5. Best celebrity to be trapped on a desert island with?
    Bear Grylls. I’ve only seen a few episodes of Man vs Wild but if all that is true, I’d trust that he’d be able to get us to survive haha.

    6. Something beautiful (anything at all)?

    The color blue and all its various shades, especially Turquoise and Indigo.

    7. Would you rather wear a dress or pants?
    Pants, especially skinny jeans. I just find them really comfy and easy to wear. They look good with everything.

    8. Your favorite comfort food?
    Grilled cheese and tomato soup haha. It’s really bad, I eat this about 3x a week at least. It stems back to my childhood, this was one of the few foods I did like as a child and my Mom fed it to me a lot! Which is surprising because she fed me pancakes a lot and now I HATE those. My husband works at The Melt in SF so he makes grilled cheese for a living haha (until he finishes school) but I think the grilled cheeses he makes me at home are way better than the ones at his work.

    9. What’s a fragrance/scent that reminds you of high school?

    Hollister’s Malaia and Tommy Hilfiger’s Tommy Girl. I wore those two in high school.

    10. What’s one thing you did last weekend?

    Stayed in bed. I came down with a nasty cold and it hit its peak last night. I had a 103 degree fever when my husband came home from work. Luckily he took great care of me and I feel worlds better than I did yesterday!

  24. Nati says:

    1. What’s one lipstick you never get tired of?
    Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Aventure, pink with golden shimmer & supermoisturizing!

    3. How often do you curl your lashes? Never! I just put mascare on them
    4. What’s one thing you’ve been putting off doing? Going to the hairdresser’s
    5. Best celebrity to be trapped on a desert island with? I don’t know any celebrity that well.
    6. Something beautiful (anything at all)? The smile of my baby <3

    9. What’s a fragrance/scent that reminds you of high school? I can't think of anything like that!
    10. What’s one thing you did last weekend? I finally watch "Flight". I quite liked it.
    Nati recently posted … Big destash!

  25. 1. What’s one lipstick you never get tired of?
    NARS Dolce Vita, the perfect neutral for my complexion. It’s not the most exciting lipstick in my collection (by far), but it’s always there for me when I need it.

    2. A fear you’d like to conquer?
    I’m a lifelong perfectionist, and my fear of failure often keeps me from taking risks.

    3. How often do you curl your lashes?
    Never. Eyelash curlers freak me out (speaking of fears).

    4. What’s one thing you’ve been putting off doing?
    Finishing the first chapter of my dissertation! It’s basically done, but it needs some serious editing, which I’m putting off by doing this poll…

    5. Best celebrity to be trapped on a desert island with?
    I don’t know much about celebrities’ survival skills, so I’m going to go with Tom Hollander, whom I’ve had a crush on for years.

    6. Something beautiful (anything at all)?
    The color fuchsia. Houses covered in Christmas lights at night. My boyfriend’s dimples.

    7. Would you rather wear a dress or pants?
    Pants! Dresses that fit perfectly are hard to find for me, because I’m slender but quite busty.

    8. Your favorite comfort food?
    I’m going to steal Karen’s answer: grilled cheese sandwiches. I’m a pretty good cook, but I find grilled cheese so hard to master for some reason! It’s frustrating.

    9. What’s a fragrance/scent that reminds you of high school?
    I’ve always loved violet-scented things, and when I was in high school I had a treasured bottle of Perfumeria Gal violet perfume. Tragically, I spilled it all over my dresser one day, and I’ve never been able to find another bottle–I think it must have been discontinued.

    10. What’s one thing you did last weekend? I’m visiting my parents in San Francisco, where I grew up, so I got to see some old friends and try South Indian food for the first time! I can’t believe I went 26 years without dosas in my life.

  26. Trude says:

    1. What’s one lipstick you never get tired of? I pretty much always move on. A lip balm I mourn though is LipSmacker’s Red Raspberry. It was the best natural tint! :)

    2. A fear you’d like to conquer? Fear of the unknown. I work through that pretty much daily.

    3. How often do you curl your lashes? Every day! I started curling them when I started having to wear glasses in college, and now I can’t imagine not doing that step.

    4. What’s one thing you’ve been putting off doing? Taking a bunch of stuff to Goodwill. Time to get it all out of my trunk!

    5. Best celebrity to be trapped on a desert island with? Harrison Ford. He’s apparently pretty damn handy IRL. :)

    6. Something beautiful (anything at all)? My boyfriend’s smile lines.

    7. Would you rather wear a dress or pants? Depends on the day, but more often than not it’s pants.

    8. Your favorite comfort food? Ruffles and Ranch dip. Horrible, I know!

    9. What’s a fragrance/scent that reminds you of high school? Pink Sugar. Didn’t everyone wear it?

  28. Tori says:

    1. What’s one lipstick you never get tired of?
    – NARS Stolen Kisses. Technically it’s a gloss, but it is the one lip color I’ve always had in my purse for the past 7 years!

    2. A fear you’d like to conquer?
    – Skydiving. I don’t like not being in control – so to jump out of a plane attached to someone else scares me to death! But a good friend skydives all the time (and even base jumps) – and watching him has inspired me to do it this year!!

    3. How often do you curl your lashes?
    - Every day! Even if I’m not putting makeup on. I think it just makes you look more awake!

    4. What’s one thing you’ve been putting off doing?
    – Making a dentist appointment. I hate going to the dentist!

    5. Best celebrity to be trapped on a desert island with?

    6. Something beautiful (anything at all)?
    – My friend’s two daughters, Ottilia (3) and Charlotte (1). They are the most precious little girls, and a hug from them makes everything okay.

    7. Would you rather wear a dress or pants?
    – I love dresses, but I’ve been all about pants lately! I’ve been going for comfort.

    8. Your favorite comfort food?
    – I’m also going to steal Karen’s answer. I LOVE grilled cheese! Especially with multiple cheeses and a tomato soup side! And french fries. If there is grilled cheese on the menu – I always order it when out!!

    9. What’s a fragrance/scent that reminds you of high school?
    – I have to go with CK One too!! I wore it all the time – and so did all of my friends!

    10. What’s one thing you did last weekend?

    Currently I’m enthralled with Urban Decay Anarchy. IT’S SO PRETTY!!!

    2. A fear you’d like to conquer?
    I’m actually working on some food aversions this year! But, my fears of spiders and bugs are definitely noteworthy.

    3. How often do you curl your lashes?
    Whenever I put on mascara. Not that it helps any.

    4. What’s one thing you’ve been putting off doing?
    Cleaning.

    5. Best celebrity to be trapped on a desert island with?
    Jennifer Lawrence. Funny as heck, but she can do archery and kill a rabbit.

    6. Something beautiful (anything at all)?
    Zena, curled up into a donut shape, sleeping on a blanket she’s turned into a nest, snoring softly. It’s utterly, utterly cute and really beautiful to me.

    A dress. I was re-converted (I used to only wear dresses!) three years ago, and now I loathe pants. GIVE ME DRESS WEATHER!

    Panera Macaroni and Cheese. I’m addicted to the stuff. It’s heaven in a bowl.

    9. What’s a fragrance/scent that reminds you of high school?
    I didn’t much fragrance in school. I learned in high school that I was allergic to the stuff! Charlie was the one I definitely remember though.

    10. What’s one thing you did last weekend?
    I stayed inside! It’s sooooooooo cold!

  30. Madeline says:

    I never get tired of Urban Decay “Jilted” lipstick. It is so beautiful.

    • Kate & Zena says:

      The new Urban Decay lipstick formula is lovely. I love it (no more scents! YES! That was basically the one thing keeping me from loving the formula before.) I now have a list a mile long of colors that I want from swatches. F-Bomb is a lovely color (and I’ve worn it so I really love it), Obsessed (worn a sample of it too), Venom, Rapture, Catfight, Bang (possibly), Jilted (maybe; I highly prefer Anarchy), Native, Naked 2 and, uh, Lovelight. I think that’s about 2/3 of the range. Someone just give me the whole range. >.< I'm all ready a huge UD fan, then they had to go redo the lipsticks and make me an addict and drag my mom along for the ride!

  31. Kacy says:

    Maybelline baby lips in Strike a Rose. It’s easy to apply, moisturizing, and a pretty pinky-coral color.

    I want to put myself out there. Hang out more with strangers or something. Make new friends?
    3. How often do you curl your lashes?

    hmm! I don’t know if I can pinpoint one… I’m a pretty fickle lippie mistress. Maybe one of these days I’ll settle down with an ol’ regular!
    2. A fear you’d like to conquer?
    The fear of having someone dislike me. I need to chill out on my tendency to be a people-pleaser.
    3. How often do you curl your lashes?
    Almost never! My lashes typically have a nice natural curl to them, and curling them makes em look a little “fwingy,” as my mother would say. :)
    4. What’s one thing you’ve been putting off doing?
    “networking.” blerg. The more exciting way to put that is “meeting new people,” but gosh I don’t like doing it. I like KNOWING people, I just don’t like having to introduce myself to them.
    5. Best celebrity to be trapped on a desert island with?
    Hmmm… I’d actually pick a girl, I think. Emma Stone seems pretty cool, or maybe Emma Watson. Someone with the name “Emma” has to be cool to hang out with. …so my internal logic goes.

    1. What’s one lipstick you never get tired of?
    I don’t often wear lipstick, simply because I prefer the glossiness of, well, gloss, but my favourite when I use #107 of the Lasting Finish by Kate (a line by Rimmel). When I bought it I’d thought it was a reddish-brown, but it’s slightly reddish-purple. I really love wearing it.

    2. A fear you’d like to conquer?
    I have severe trypanophobia, which means I become instantly hysterical when I so much think about having a needle. I wish it was something I could get over, but unfortunately I’ve tried many times and failed.

    3. How often do you curl your lashes?
    I’ve never curled my lashes. How do you even do that? (Novice alert!)

    4. What’s one thing you’ve been putting off doing?
    Buying the Shakespeare plays I need for my summer intensive subject in February. I need to get on that, and quickly!

    5. Best celebrity to be trapped on a desert island with?
    Technically, the most sensible idea would be to say Bear Grylls, because he’s a man who seems to be able to survive anything. However, if we had easily-supplied resources, I’d love to be trapped with Jena Malone. She has such an alternative take on the world, I think it’d be an oddly rewarding experience.

    6. Something beautiful (anything at all)?
    I was wandering through one of the public gardens in my city a couple of months ago and I saw two newlywed couples having their photos taken there. We’d had miserable weather state-wide for weeks, and it was one of the few days where Melbourne had a lovely warm day, so it really was a beautiful thing to see.

    7. Would you rather wear a dress or pants?
    Oh, it depends on the weather! If the weather is nice and mild, or if I feel like cleaning (oddly enough), I like to wear dresses, because I can move around freely and equally feel pretty. Otherwise, I usually stick to jeans.

    8. Your favorite comfort food?
    A really expensive, high quality ice cream, such as Connoisseur’s or Maggie Beer – the kind that costs $10 for a really small tub! They’re the perfect thing to tuck into when I’m feeling down.

    9. What’s a fragrance/scent that reminds you of high school?
    I think it might be Britney Spears’ “Curious In Control”, as it was the first perfume I ever received, so I used to wear it all the time.

    10. What’s one thing you did last weekend?
    I bought my first three bottles of OPI nail polish! One of the girls at my work found them stashed away on a shelf and we don’t normally sell OPI, so I pounced! They’re all from the 007 Bond Girls series, and one of them was one I’ve been thinking about buying for a while (Honey Ryder). I also bought Vesper and Solitaire. The greatest thing is that they were nearly half price, too, so I saved loads of money!

    1. What’s one lipstick you never get tired of?
    I don’t wear lipstick but i’m dying to start!

    2. A fear you’d like to conquer?
    Your answer makes sense to me, i am always procrastinating, i need to prioritize. I think i put things off that im scared to do.

    3. How often do you curl your lashes?
    Never!!! Those curlers scare me!

    4. What’s one thing you’ve been putting off doing?
    I need to get into yoga again, it makes me feel so good so i know i need to make the time for it.

    5. Best celebrity to be trapped on a desert island with?
    Ron Swanson from Parks and Recreation ;)

    2. A fear you’d like to conquer?
    The fear to darkness >_<

    3. How often do you curl your lashes?
    Every single time I put on mascara, if I don't do that imagine a sad set of straight lashes pointing down like a ceiling pouring rain over it (LOL poetic moment).

    4. What’s one thing you’ve been putting off doing?
    Find a part-time job (I know… I have to work on that).

    5. Best celebrity to be trapped on a desert island with?
    Hmmm… Hard question!!! I wouldn't mind if I could get trapped with Daniel Gillies (Elijah Mikaelson from The Originals).

    My boyfriend's eyes (aaaaweeee cheesy moment LOL).

  39. Michelle Manese says:

    Hi Karen! How are ya? Anyhow…

    1. What’s one lipstick you never get tired of?
    —Can I cheat and say anything red that makes me look good is okay in my book? They are my everyday lip so yeah…never got tired of ‘em.

    2. A fear you’d like to conquer?
    —Public Speaking! I mean, I’m getting better at it but I still want to completely make it my biatch! :)))

    3. How often do you curl your lashes?
    —I don’t, for some reason, I don’t. I know! It’s almost blasphemous.

    4. What’s one thing you’ve been putting off doing?
    —School work :3

    5. Best celebrity to be trapped on a desert island with?
    —Bear Grylls! And c’mon he’s not unfortunate on the eyes either. So it’s a win-win.

    6. Something beautiful (anything at all)?
    —Dreamers dreaming despite reality. Perfect lyrics. Warm bed on chilly days. The stars.

    7. Would you rather wear a dress or pants?
    —Dress, for sure, but like you…something comfortable. The fabric has to be soft and it should reach above the knees, with pockets. :)

    8. Your favorite comfort food?
    —Spaghetti, with a ton of parmesan cheese and a strong basil flavor.

    9. What’s a fragrance/scent that reminds you of high school?
    —HAIRSPRAY! I had a cosmetology class junior year that I utterly enjoyed.

    10. What’s one thing you did last weekend?
    —Finished a couple of books I wanted to read. Finished a couple of poems that I’ll be performing this week, not much. :)

  40. Rachel P. says:

    1. What’s one lipstick you never get tired of? – MAC’s Creme Cup! Just always flattering, always a pleasure to apply and wear, any time of day, night, any time of year!
    2. A fear you’d like to conquer? – My fear of failure. I have not taken the risk of doing something crazy like moving to Hawaii or France or quitting my jobs to write full-time because I’m afraid I won’t succeed. While it’s a sensible fear to have (keeps me safe financially, for instance), it really hinders me when it comes to having adventures and pursuing great passions.
    3. How often do you curl your lashes? – Ehhhh. Minimally. I should more, but my lashes are quite long and have some natural curl, so I often skip it.
    4. What’s one thing you’ve been putting off doing? – Cleaning the home/donating old things. I have a box of stuff that needs to be donated, but I don’t want to give it to Goodwill or Salv Army because it just gets resold/redistributed- I want to donate directly to a family in need, maybe even internationally. I need to find a site or something where I can mail my old things to someone who has a size similar to me and cannot afford nice things of their own.
    5. Best celebrity to be trapped on a desert island with? – Johnny Depp, for POTC and real-life reasons :)
    6. Something beautiful (anything at all)? – True love comes to mind, but so does great cinematography/acting. Film can be an amazingly touching medium and just a wonder to behold.
    7. Would you rather wear a dress or pants? – I’d rather wear a dress! Sadly a more realistic answer would be pants, because I have so many more of those… but if I had enough dresses, I’d prefer those for sure.
    8. Your favorite comfort food? – Ooohhhh… chocolate, popcorn, or ramen. Any of those, interchangeably.
    9. What’s a fragrance/scent that reminds you of high school? – Okay. So, Bethany Hamilton is that awesome, incredibly inspiring female surfer, about my age, I think (22? 23? ish?). Before her marriage (recent) and movie (Soul Surfer, a few years back), she designed some stuff when we were even younger. I bought her perfume at Claire’s, maybe right at the end of middle school (so, 2003/4), and wore it for years. Can’t remember what it was called, but the plastic bottle was in the shape of a surfboard and smelled just perfect to me. So that’s the scent of high school, for me. I wore it all the time, nobody else had it (that I knew of).
    10. What’s one thing you did last weekend? – I can guarantee you I worked, probably doubles. But I like my jobs, so, weekend well spent :)

    1. What’s one lipstick you never get tired of?
    Make Up For Ever rouge pallette, they have 5 pink colors which can be mix and match.
    2. fear you’d like to conquer?
    Resign from current job and pursue full time career as make up artist.
    3. How often do you curl your lashes?
    gosshh, everyday, mine is super flat.
    4. What’s one thing you’ve been putting off doing?
    Go to the gym
