The Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll for January 13, 2014

The Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll for January 13, 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. When was the last time you pulled an all-nighter?
    Hmm… It’s been a while. I think it might’ve been 2007, during SF Fashion week.

    I was a brand new beauty blogger at the time, and I’d just gotten my first DSLR camera. I remember coming home after the shows and staying up all night long writing and futzing with the pics, and then slamming a pot of coffee the next morning so that I could make it through my day job at the literary agency.

    Ah, good times… Good times.

  2. Are you currently trying any new skincare products?
    Why, yes! I’m trying a couple new things this week — Kate Somerville’s Replenishing Toner (supposed to be good for dry skin) and Guerlain Orchidee Imperiale Eye and Lip Cream (for my dark circles and fine lines).
  3. What do you like to listen to while you’re driving?
    Pretty much anything. As long as I can sing along to it, we coo’. Usually, it’s the radio. Ideally, upbeat pop, or if I’m feeling agitated or need to be soothed, then something easy listening (“Light rock…less talk. 96.5, KOIT”), because the last thing I want when I’m feeling stressed is Pitbull yelling at me about how he’s having fun at the club.

    I get it, dude. You’re having a great time at the club. I get it. :)

  4. Flip-flops or Converse?

    Even though I have a soft spot for low-top Converse, I’ll go with Reef flip-flops, please.
  5. What’s one activity you tried to get into but couldn’t/chose not to?
    In middle school, my friend Nancy played basketball, and she tried to get interested in it, but I’m fairly terrible at all sports involving projectiles.

    My natural reaction is always to duck, and not catch, whatever’s being thrown at me.

    Anyway, it didn’t take long for me to figure out that this brown girl can’t jump, LOL! I was terrible at it, so I put all my hoop dreams aside…

  6. Have you ever ended a relationship with someone you were still in love with?
    Yes, and it was absolutely awful and traumatic. I wouldn’t wish it upon anyone. It took me a long time to put it behind me. Ten years, give or take.
  7. Three random things you like?
    1. Seeing Tabs’ tum sway back and forth when he runs down the stairs
    2. Drinking a really cold Vitamin Water Zero with my lunch
    3. Having a whole day to myself where I can see and do new things
  8. Three random things you dislike?
    1. Eating wet grapes (I can only eat them when they’re dry)
    2. Seeing people act disrespectfully and without patience toward the elderly (GRRR)
    3. Having a sticky, sweaty neck
  9. Do you ever use your phone in the bathroom?
    Totally guilty of this! I should stop…seeing as how my nightmare would be to accidentally drop the phone in the toilet.
  10. Would you rather make coffee at home, or grab a cup from someplace else?
    While I love a good cafe-made soy latte, nine of 10 times I’d rather just make my coffee at home. It’s cheaper, quicker, and I’m not a big fan of waiting in lines.

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. When was the last time you pulled an all-nighter?
2. Are you currently trying any new skincare products?
3. What do you like to listen to while you’re driving?
4. Flip-flops or Converse?
5. What’s one activity you tried to get into but couldn’t/chose not to?
6. Have you ever ended a relationship with someone you were still in love with?
7. Three random things you like?
8. Three random things you dislike?
9. Do you ever use your phone in the bathroom?
10. Would you rather make coffee at home, or grab a cup from someplace else?

Speaking of coffee…I spit mine all over myself this morning, LOL!

Yup, PPFFFFT! I guess I was drinking it too eagerly, because a big sip went down the wrong pipe, and I spit up all over my shirt, my chin and neck, the kitchen counter, and even got some up in my hair.

Ah… There’s nothing quite getting coffee in your hair first thing on a Monday morning.

On the plus side, now my mane smells like chocolate-flavored coffee from Kauai. #glasshalffull :)

Have a good one today. Tabs says, “mrow.”

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

      6. Have you ever ended a relationship with someone you were still in love with?
      Yes, but it was time. Then it was so hard…the hardest decision I ever made. It wasn’t so much leaving him that hurt so bad. Him and I had grown apart. It was leaving his family :( They were my best friends. A girl has to do what a girl has to do to survive and grow!

I love that I don’t have to do anything but swipe my phone and my drink is payed for and made within minutes. I always get a Grande Americano with steamed breve and vanilla. It is a DELIGHT!

  9. Ruchita says:

    1. When was the last time you pulled an all-nighter?
    It’s been a long time. Several years ago for work when I was working on a software release.

    2. Are you currently trying any new skincare products?
    I’ve used this Grape Seed Extract peel off mask from Queene Helene a couple of times. I like the results!

    3. What do you like to listen to while you’re driving?
    I have Sirius XM satellite radio, so I’ll listen to talk radio in the mornings. For music, I like Lithium b/c it has all my favorite 90s alternative music. Also the Hits 1 channel, so I can keep up with what all the kids are listening to these days. :-)

    4. Flip-flops or Converse?
    Flip flops. I can’t wait til it’s warm enough to wear them again.

    5. What’s one activity you tried to get into but couldn’t/chose not to?

    Luckily haven’t had to.

    7. Three random things you like?

    Yeah. But usually to play games or surf the web.

    10. Would you rather make coffee at home, or grab a cup from someplace else?
    Grab a cup. We’re not regular coffee drinkers so it’s more of an ordeal to get the coffee maker set up to brew a drink. However, in the summer I make a batch of cold brew coffee to make iced coffee.

    Happy Monday!

  10. MM Curator says:

    1. When was the last time you pulled an all-nighter? – College. It was my first and last. I remember it clearly because I was so wired from all the coffee I drank I started having auditory hallucinations. Never again!
    2. Are you currently trying any new skincare products? Yup, Origins Mega-Bright serum – trying to wade through all the skincare samples that I’ve accumulated.
    3. What do you like to listen to while you’re driving? – NPR. I have trouble listening to music, especially music I like, since I get distracted easily. I’m a nervous driver anyway and I find NPR soothing.
    4. Flip-flops or Converse? Converse.
    5. What’s one activity you tried to get into but couldn’t/chose not to? I really wanted to play the guitar but I am sooooo not musically inclined. It makes me sad because most of my idols are rock stars and I want to be like them!
    6. Have you ever ended a relationship with someone you were still in love with? Nope.
    7. Three random things you like? My mom’s texts (they’re unintentionally hilarious), my Road ID (helps me feel safe while running), sunny days.
    8. Three random things you dislike? People who walk on the wrong side of the sidewalk (it’s like driving, people! Stick to the right!), the coating of dust and dried sweat on the bases of the treadmills at my gym (so gross) and bugs. Basically I hate all bugs except ladybugs and fireflies.
    9. Do you ever use your phone in the bathroom? Yup, in the tub. I know it’s an accident waiting to happen but I love catching up on blogs while I soak!
    10. Would you rather make coffee at home, or grab a cup from someplace else? For regular coffee I like to make it at home, but for lattes I need to go out. I’m seriously addicted to flavored Starbucks lattes.

    1. When was the last time you pulled an all-nighter? I don’t think I’ve ever pulled a true all nighter. I’ve always gotten a bit of sleep. Most recently, I went to bed at 2:30 the night before a business trip and had to wake up at 3:40 to get ready/go to the airport. Does that count?

    2. Are you currently trying any new skincare products? Nah, I’m liking my routine now. I’d like to try an eye cream soon, however.

    3. What do you like to listen to while you’re driving? I have a playlist on my iPod that has about 140 songs. Current favorites on that list for pumping myself up as I drive to work are “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” and “Heat of the Moment.” I enjoy a song I can sing along to that’s still rocking.

    4. Flip-flops or Converse? Flip-flops from June-September, baby!

    5. What’s one activity you tried to get into but couldn’t/chose not to? Puzzles. In 4th grade, I fancied myself a puzzles master and asked for (and received) over a dozen puzzles for Christmas. I did none of them.

    6. Have you ever ended a relationship with someone you were still in love with? Nah. At the time I thought I was in love, though!

    7. Three random things you like? I like things that are pink and sparkly, anything with lambs on it, and the skirt I’m wearing, which is a vegan leather skater skirt. I am the girliest of girly girls!

    8. Three random things you dislike? Phone screamers (people who feel the need to raise their voice to insane decibels when they get on the phone), driving home from work (I wish I could teleport), and the fact that my current purse (which I love otherwise!) does not have a key fob strap in it. I hate hunting for my keys!

    9. Do you ever use your phone in the bathroom? All the time! I get bored easily!

    10. Would you rather make coffee at home, or grab a cup from someplace else? I don’t drink coffee.

  12. Tania says:

    1. When was the last time you pulled an all-nighter? A few weeks ago. INSOMNIA!!

    8. Three random things you dislike? the slow elevator in my building, whatever random thing I’m allergic to at work, the sound of pens clicking.
    9. Do you ever use your phone in the bathroom? Yes especially if I’m in the middle of a good song and nature calls.
    10. Would you rather make coffee at home, or grab a cup from someplace else? Coffee I want someone else to make it because I don’t drink it often. Tea (which I drink a lot) I’m picky about so I make at home (or at work).

  13. 1. When was the last time you pulled an all-nighter? I think it was back in October or November. Went to a rockabilly concert with friends. They had to throw us out. Oh and the week after the same thing happened at a friend’s birthday party :-) The bar was closing but we were not having any of that, lol.

    2. Are you currently trying any new skincare products? Yes, Clinique’s Firming moisturizer. It’s too early to really give my opinion on it though.

    3. What do you like to listen to while you’re driving? I usually just tune into a popular music channel and listen to whatever’s hot at the moment. I never play my own music in the car.

    4. Flip-flops or Converse? Converse, definitely!

    5. What’s one activity you tried to get into but couldn’t/chose not to? Running. A friend asked me if I wanted to join him, so he wouldn’t have to run alone. So I did. But after just a few weeks I gave up. And so did he, lol. We just really didn’t like running ;-)

    6. Have you ever ended a relationship with someone you were still in love with? Yes. And I will regret that for the rest of my life. We’re back together, but still, I hate that I made that horrible mistake back then.

    8. Three random things you dislike? Waiting rooms, the smell of cigarettes, public toilets

    9. Do you ever use your phone in the bathroom? At home? Yeah.

    1. When was the last time you pulled an all-nighter? On purpose? My birthday weekend in 2013. It’s coming up again 1/18–look out neighbors (we tend to party with our neighbors).

    2. Are you currently trying any new skincare products? Not really but there’s this organic sunscreen that I like to put on before my winter hikes…it has honey in it but the name escapes me!

    3. What do you like to listen to while you’re driving? SiriusXM Hits 2, The Highway (new country) or Alt Nation (alt Rock) or 92.5 Boston’s only solar powered independent radio station. :)

    5. What’s one activity you tried to get into but couldn’t/chose not to?

    6. Have you ever ended a relationship with someone you were still in love with? sure, my first love but that was like 1994. Le sigh. It’s okay, I married the guy I met that very same year and we are very happy together and will celebrate 20 years this fall.

    7. Three random things you like? Tabby cats. Green tea. Hiking.

    8. Three random things you dislike? People that are tattle tails, really hot days, weeks where I don’t hit the gym. :(

    2. Are you currently trying any new skincare products? I tried the green liquid from Skinceuticals. I love the Hydrating B5, but this green stuff didn’t do anything. It was supposed to help with my red veins plus hydrating but nothing happened. In addition it felt drying on the skin!

    1. When was the last time you pulled an all-nighter?
    Halloween just gone… we were up til 5am before going to bed for a few hours until the cats decided we should be awake.
    2. Are you currently trying any new skincare products?
    Nope – my last experiment with a new product has ended in utter disaster!
    3. What do you like to listen to while you’re driving?
    Rock, metal, punk, indie. I have to be able to sing along and nod my head like a demented thing. Although because I don’t own a car and just rent one when I need it, I’m not always able to hook up my own tunes, in which case I listen to the cheesy radio station that plays a good mix of classic and new stuff.

    5. What’s one activity you tried to get into but couldn’t/chose not to?

    Depends how badly I want coffee!! I don’t really drink it that much, but I live in Vienna where the coffee is usually pretty good, and the atmosphere in a cafe is as important as the bean.

  19. Nati says:

    10. Would you rather make coffee at home, or grab a cup from someplace else? I think “grab a cup of coffee” is a very American thing. If I was in Italy I’d go out for coffee; here in Switzerland, the only coffee I like is at home ;)

    2. Are you currently trying any new skincare products? I recently got a new moisturizer from Origins (Make A Difference), and while I really love it a need the moisture, it’s too much for me to wear under makeup so I only use it at night.

    3. What do you like to listen to while you’re driving? Usually NPR, but sometimes I go for car-singing therapy. :)

    4. Flip-flops or Converse? Definitely Cons. I have 4 pairs.

    When was the last time you pulled an all-nighter?

    I may be the only person ever who has never done this. I’ve stayed up until 6 AM, and I’ve seen the sunrise from the “wrong side”, but then I go to bed. I’m one of those people who does not function without sleep, and my body really wants 11-12 hrs solid every night. Doesn’t happen that way, but less than seven hours and even my wonderful family can’t stand me.

    2. Are you currently trying any new skincare products?
    Lacura sea mineral night cream, and I like it! Also Zum Mint goat’s milk soap, which smells amazing but (embarrassing) makes my lymph nodes and membranes tingle for maybe 15 minutes after!
    3. What do you like to listen to while you’re driving?
    Podcasts: esp. Stuff you Missed in History Class, No Agenda, and Sawbones
    4. Flip-flops or Converse?

  22. Katherine M says:

    1. When was the last time you pulled an all-nighter?
    ~Probably not since my early college years. I’ve had many nights where I had trouble sleeping or insomnia but I haven’t pulled an actual all nighter (not counting night shift in the ER) in years.

    2. Are you currently trying any new skincare products?
    ~I am using Olay’s Microderm Abrasion kit. Much cheaper than going to the spa or buying one from Ulta or Sephora (I also own Olay’s version of the Clarisonic, which is wonderful). It works really well and I’ve noticed a difference on my combination skin. My skin looked brighter after a week and it helped fade some dark spots that were old pimple scars. It’s very good at buffing dry skin patches, too.

    3. What do you like to listen to while you’re driving?
    ~Pretty much anything – country when I’m in the mountains, hard rock for on the highway, pop for when I’m running errands. I’m not terribly picky. However, when people on the road seem out to intimidate everyone, I like to play loud, angsty rock music like Godsmack, Disturbed, or Shinedown to prove the point that they won’t get to me :)

    4. Flip-flops or Converse?
    ~Flip flops all the way, baby.

    5. What’s one activity you tried to get into but couldn’t/chose not to?
    ~I was never great at skiing. I can, however, snowboard fairly well (just not with jumps yet).

    6. Have you ever ended a relationship with someone you were still in love with?
    ~Yep, and I’m not sure how much of it was love as much as infatuation, but it still hurt nonetheless.

    7. Three random things you like?
    ~hot tea on a bone chilling cold night, a good trail run, Husky puppies.

    8. Three random things you dislike?
    ~people in my personal space, the texture/smell of ham, and being injured in any way, shape or form.

    9. Do you ever use your phone in the bathroom?
    ~Yup…guilty of this one. I have the Kindle app on my phone so I don’t have to grab my Kindle or a magazine…TMI?

    10. Would you rather make coffee at home, or grab a cup from someplace else?
    ~I like doing both. If I don’t feel like waiting in line or going through a drive through, I make it at home. Other times, I love a good Starbucks frappaccino, or a Dunkin Donuts salted caramel hot chocolate. But, I could also make those drinks at home very easily.

    1. When was the last time you pulled an all-nighter?
    I had to pull one for work back in September, we were planning a HUGE fundraising luncheon and stayed at the office until almost 2 am.

    Stuff I can dance and sing to! Like Britney, Beyoncé and Lady Gaga (my holy trinity!). I have XM radio in my car, so when I get out of work, TMZ Live is on, followed by Lance Bass’s Dirty Pop Live, it’s just great celebrity-gossip fluff for after work.

    9. Do you ever use your phone in the bathroom?
    Sometimes, but never while on a phone call or a text!

    10. Would you rather make coffee at home, or grab a cup from someplace else?
    I end up grabbing a cup someplace else or from the office, but I prefer to make coffee at home. I like brew strong and the office coffee is always watery! I add in a packet of instant Taster’s Choice to my mug, haha

    2. Are you currently trying any new skincare products?
    yeah, skII. more due to the hype really, since i’ve tried the facial treatment essence and it does nothing for me. i have a serum that 4x the pitera than their other products, so if i still can’t see differences then the yeast thang is not for me.

    karen! i haven’t done this in a while. :( or at least, it feels like it has been a while….

    1. When was the last time you pulled an all-nighter?
    probably the summer before high school. I took biology before 9th grade, and i was studying for the final. i memorized everything, and only missed 2 questions! biology and i never got along since then. *sigh*

    2. Are you currently trying any new skincare products?
    i’ve been using ole henriksen’s invigorating night gel. i have been getting cystic pimples (the culprit is probably the birth control) and i had no idea how to get rid of it. the MAC MUA told me about it and it has been doing a pretty good job. it better, for that price! haha.

    i’m also using Lumene’s vitamin C serum. i haven’t seen a big difference, but it’s a nice invigorating addition to the morning routine. :)

    3. What do you like to listen to while you’re driving?
    well, if there are idiots/traffic all over, i try to have oldies on. makes me feel better. :) but if it’s just whatever driving, i have the alternative station, or the easy listening station, on. i miss KOIT! it’s on my nor*cal/bay area radio station preset :)

    4. Flip-flops or Converse?
    flip flops are comfortable, but chucks anyday! as long as they’re high tops, and i have cool socks on.

    5. What’s one activity you tried to get into but couldn’t/chose not to?
    knitting? i picked it up for a while, but like most projects i start, i stopped doing it. i might pick it back up again.

    6. Have you ever ended a relationship with someone you were still in love with?
    no. i fell out of love with the previous boyfriend, so i finally ended it before i did anything stupid. the other boyfriends were just high school lust. nothing serious (now that i look back. hahha). i bet it really does suck to end something that still has strong connections.

    7. Three random things you like?
    tv.
    lactose free chocolate ice cream.
    friendly conversations with strangers.

    8. Three random things you dislike?
    wearing socks and stepping on wet.
    people who don’t say “thank you”.
    when someone doesn’t listen to your idea/perception when you know you’re right. then they find out they were wrong and don’t acknowledge that you were right. bitches.

    9. Do you ever use your phone in the bathroom?
    only at home. not in public. gotta stay classy. hahaha

    10. Would you rather make coffee at home, or grab a cup from someplace else?
    we usually make coffee at home. but on the special days, i treat myself to a bought coffee. like: i worked out before heading out to do my errands, so i earned my frilly coffee.

    happy monday, ya’ll! hope it treated you all well. cheers to the week!

    This is really sad, but this is what came to mind. I had a boyfriend who died while we were dating. It was a work- related accident, and it was horrible!

    Would you rather make coffee at home, or grab a cup from someplace else? Make at home. It is more affordable and don’t have to get dressed and get in a car, before I get to guzzle down my coffee. But occasionally I liked to buy coffee. I’m a sucker for those carmel frappuccinos from Starbucks. =D
