Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 312

The Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll for March 3, 2014

Extra cute with a side o’ cute!

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 your current favorite product from MAC?
    As of this exact moment in time, Warm Soul Mineralize Blush.
  2. What was the highlight of your weekend?

    Sleeping in yesterday.
  3. Have you ever photobombed anyone?
    I’ve been photobombing since before it was a thing, so yes. :)
  4. Is your desk or office messy or neat?

    Ungh! So messy and I hate it.
  5. What’s your current favorite social network and why?

    Instagram, because where else can you share countless pictures of your cat without people thinking you’re completely nuts?

    Wait — I guess I already do that on this blog, haha!

  6. Have you ever had any cartoon-themed lunch boxes, bags, binders — things like that?

    Yes, when I was a kid. I had Hello Kitty everything. I had a Hello Kitty lunch box, Hello Kitty binders, pens. I wish I’d kept all that stuff.
  7. Pink: love it or leave it?

    Love it. Pink flowers, lipstick, pink summery clothes and colors. It just makes me happy.

    I think I have a little bit more love for bright pinks…

    Ooh! Watermelon pink is my fave.

  8. Have you ever had to tie a tie (for yourself or someone else)?

    Hmm… I don’t think so? Actually, I did go through a phase — I think it was fourth grade — when I wanted to wear pastel ties, so I did learn how to do it.

    It was the ’80s… I don’t know.

  9. Have you ever had a pet bird, and if so, what was his/her name?

    We had a cockatiel when I was a kid, very briefly. I can’t remember its name or what happened to it though.
  10. What does your umbrella look like?

    It’s one of those longer ones with a wooden handle, and there’s a painting on the surface of a woman dancing barefoot at the beach with a man holding an umbrella over her.

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. Stephanie A. says:

    Hello there! I watched the Oscars last night; I do every year. Not necessarily because I’m invested in watching, but I’m afraid of missing whatever is talked about the next day. Woo-hoo for Lupita–her performance was GUT-WRENCHING!

    1. What’s your current favorite product from MAC? My MAC stuff tends to be staples, and not necessarily my newest makeup loves. Therefore, my favorite staple is my MSFN in Medium Plus.
    2. What was the highlight of your weekend? It was kind of a crazy one, after the week from absolute hell. So…boring answer here…my favorite part was when the bad weather started yesterday afternoon, and I had no choice but to stop running and relax.
    3. Have you ever photobombed anyone? Allllll the time! I hate having my own picture taken, but I love to mess up someone else’s. I’m a four-year-old…
    4. Is your desk or office messy or neat? Neat, though it is in that state through conscious, diligent effort. I am so much more productive in neat space.
    5. What’s your current favorite social network and why?
    6. Have you ever had any cartoon-themed lunch boxes, bags, binders — things like that? Oh hell yes! I was all about the Rainbow Brite in elementary school.
    7. Pink: love it or leave it? LOVE it for makeup, hate it for clothing (on my)
    8. Have you ever had to tie a tie (for yourself or someone else)? Yes–I learned while waiting tables in college at a restaurant that had a tie as part of the uniform. I still wear one occasionally, actually–I like the look of “feminized” menswear look for work.
    9. Have you ever had a pet bird, and if so, what was his/her name? Nope
    10. What does your umbrella look like? I have half a dozen umbrellas, all plain and generic, because I ALWAYS misplace them. I’ve found the easiest way to find where I lost an umbrella is to buy a new one–they always seem to magically re-appear once the purchase is complete!

    1. What’s your current favorite product from MAC? Don’t laugh, but I’ve never bought anything from MAC. I know it’s a mistake. I just have a problem, sometimes, with getting on the bandwagon with a brand that’s soooooo popular (I know that doesn’t make any sense. I’ll buy something from MAC one of these days)

    Ellen did SUCH a good job on the Oscars. She was a little shaky at first, but totally made up for it later on.

    1. What’s your current favorite product from MAC? This is going to sound weird, but I don’t have one. Don’t hate me, but I think MAC is overrated.

    2. What was the highlight of your weekend? I went to a Mediterranean potluck, and I made baklava for the event. It was all delicious!

    3. Have you ever photobombed anyone? Probably. ;)

    4. Is your desk or office messy or neat? Right now, it’s a mix. The slight messiness has been bothering me for days, but I haven’t done anything about it yet.

    5. What’s your current favorite social network and why? Facebook because it’s easiest to use and feels more meaningful than Twitter.

    6. Have you ever had any cartoon-themed lunch boxes, bags, binders — things like that? Not that I remember, which seems weird…

    7. Pink: love it or leave it? LOVE IT. It’s my favorite color. Here’s a weird story: Recently I was getting new locks on my door and my landlady asked me what color I wanted my key to be, since she was getting copies made. I said pink and she and her handyman laughed. In my mind I was like, “why was that funny? I was serious.”

    8. Have you ever had to tie a tie (for yourself or someone else)? Yeah, a long time ago, and I don’t remember why.

    9. Have you ever had a pet bird, and if so, what was his/her name? Nope. I don’t understand the appeal of pet birds.

  11. Katherine M says:

    1. What’s your current favorite product from MAC?
    ~I love their shadows – I have some of classics like Woodwinked, Club, Gorgeous Gold, and Mulch. They play well with others and also look amazing on their own.

    2. What was the highlight of your weekend?
    ~Going to the Baltimore Aquarium and seeing the sharks and dolphins, my fave sea animals. I also went to Fogo de Chao with my hubby, we’d never been and had heard a lot of great raves about it from people we know.

    3. Have you ever photobombed anyone?
    ~I can’t say I have, but some fish kept photobombing my shark pics yesterday.

    4. Is your desk or office messy or neat?
    ~Fairly neat, I feel like I can’t think well when things are really messy.

    5. What’s your current favorite social network and why?
    ~I like Facebook because it’s easy to keep in contact with people. I don’t have to remember emails and phone numbers, it’s all in one spot. I also love Pinterest because I get a lot of great ideas from there for workouts, meals, pretty much everything.

    6. Have you ever had any cartoon-themed lunch boxes, bags, binders — things like that?
    ~If you count Lisa Frank, then yes. I had a thing for the colorful horses and unicorns she drew.

    7. Pink: love it or leave it?
    ~It’s really grown on me as I’ve gotten older. When I was younger I used to think it was too soft and girly of a color for my badass side. Now I see where you can still be a badass and love pink.

    8. Have you ever had to tie a tie (for yourself or someone else)?
    ~Yes, I have. At my old job us girls had to dress more or less the same as the guys.

    9. Have you ever had a pet bird, and if so, what was his/her name?
    ~No, can’t say I have. I have known people that have had them but I have never really gotten to know birds as pets.

    10. What does your umbrella look like?
    ~Black with smiley faces all over it :)

  12. Trude says:

    1. What’s your current favorite product from MAC? Fix +. Use it daily! This weekend I tried a tip from Jaclyn Hill and sprayed it on an eyeshadow brush before picking up the product, and it worked like a charm! Intensified the color and made it last longer (even more so than the eye primer I wear daily). So awesome.

    2. What was the highlight of your weekend? Spending quality time with the boy. He works crazy hours all week, so that’s pretty much our only time together right now.

    3. Have you ever photobombed anyone? Hell yes! How do you emerge from childhood without that? :)

    4. Is your desk or office messy or neat? Pretty neat. Everything gets put away before I go home.

    5. What’s your current favorite social network and why? Probably Instagram. I can see what my friends are up to, in a much cleaner way than all the FB suggestions and junk.

    6. Have you ever had any cartoon-themed lunch boxes, bags, binders — things like that? I’m sure I did when I was a kid! I looooved She-ra.

    7. Pink: love it or leave it? I love it a lot more than I did 10 years ago. Maybe because there’s so many more options than just pastel baby pink?

    8. Have you ever had to tie a tie (for yourself or someone else)? Nope, I’ve only taken them off. ;)

    9. Have you ever had a pet bird, and if so, what was his/her name? No, birds are fine, but I would never have one as a pet.

    10. What does your umbrella look like? I had a lovely huge golf sized one that went missing. Time for a new one!

  15. Amy says:

    1. What’s your current favorite product from MAC?

    Oscar viewing with friends and food!

    Yes, although when the people can immediately see you photobombed them within seconds on their phones, it makes it a little embarrassing lol

    Somewhat messy. Lots of weird charts and random decorations. It’s organized to me though.

    5. What’s your current favorite social network and why?

  17. Leah says:

    1. What’s your current favorite product from MAC? I still love the lip and eye lines from the Tartan line they ran a few years back. That hands down will always be my favorite MAC product line.

    2. What was the highlight of your weekend? Being in CA for a work event (a nice break from a Boston Winter)

    3. Have you ever photobombed anyone? Not on purpose but it’s always funny when it happens with an older family member or pet that does not know they are doing it.

    4. Is your desk or office messy or neat? A combo of both. I have my own office and always try to clean it prior to a work trip.

    5. What’s your current favorite social network and why? I really like G+ for photos but FB keeps me in touch with all of my family and friends that live really far away.

    6. Have you ever had any cartoon-themed lunch boxes, bags, binders — things like that? Sure! In elementary school. :)

    7. Pink: love it or leave it? Love it but not for clothes. For nails and makeup and accessories–I have a pink watch band today–it works.

    8. Have you ever had to tie a tie (for yourself or someone else)? Nope, I let my husband handle that.

    9. Have you ever had a pet bird, and if so, what was his/her name? Nope but the yoga studio I went to in Orange, CA (in Old Town) had a pet bird there. I thought the bird was lovely and peaceful since during the day it did not live in its cage. :)

    10. What does your umbrella look like? In Boston umbrellas get shredded like in Seattle. So I have an LL Bean parka (a 3-in-1) that is the most waterproof thing I own (I bought it for a trip to Iceland and Scotland). :) So it’s fleece on the inside but like a rain coat for the top layer that’s removable. And yes, my Mom has the same coat in purple. :)

  18. Britney says:

    1. What’s your current favorite product from MAC?
    …OMG, there are so many. For now though, Pervette lipstick because it is a light shimmery pink that is beautiful any time

    2. What was the highlight of your weekend?
    Finally getting my eyebrows shaped correctly. Is so frustrating having to find a new nail/eyebrow tech that does it your way

    3. Have you ever photobombed anyone?
    Yes, and did it totally unexpectedly.

    4. Is your desk or office messy or neat?
    Desk is always neat. Can’t stand having clutter. My OCD

    5. What’s your current favorite social network and why?
    Pintrest is so addicting. So much beauty and fitness ideas.

    6. Have you ever had any cartoon-themed lunch boxes, bags, binders — things like that?

  30. Sylirael says:

    2. What was the highlight of your weekend?
    Pancakes and videogames on Sunday with the Wizard (my husband)!

    3. Have you ever photobombed anyone?
    Not knowingly, but I’m sure I’ve done it unintentionally at some point (if that’s possible).

    4. Is your desk or office messy or neat?
    At the moment, quite neat – we’ve just moved offices!

    5. What’s your current favorite social network and why?
    I’m only on Facebook, but only personally. I want to start FB, Twitter and Instagram for my blog, but it’s all a bit overwhelming for a social media hermit like me.

    6. Have you ever had any cartoon-themed lunch boxes, bags, binders — things like that?
    I’m sure I’ve had something Diney themed in my life. Odds are it was Aladdin (#stillobssessed),

    7. Pink: love it or leave it?
    Love it :-) It likes me, so I like it!

    Both. Our orchestra in high school had to wear ties, and the girls were better a tying them than the guys were! :-D

    9. Have you ever had a pet bird, and if so, what was his/her name?
    Nope! If I did though, the kind of bird I would want is probably not the kind of bird you actually want to keep in your house. I like the predatory ones, like falcons and owls…

    10. What does your umbrella look like?
    It is bright blue, with large, colourful toucans around the edge :-)

    Love! I’m currently wearing Milani’s new liquid lipstick in Pink Rave.

    9. Have you ever had a pet bird, and if so, what was his/her name?
    No again.

    10. What does your umbrella look like?
    It’s a particularly ugly shade of grayish purple, but I’m afraid to buy a nicer one because I just know I’ll lose it–I’ve lost countless pretty umbrellas in the past.

    1. What’s your current favorite product from MAC? I was going to say that drugstore makeup is waaay cooler and that I don’t need expensive brand-name products, but then I realized that I own quite a few MAC products. Oops.
