Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 437

Published in: Just For Fun

You might be wondering, “So what in tarnation is this Monday Poll thing anyway!?”

Well, it isn’t exactly a poll. It’s more of a constantly evolving (devolving?), somewhat random list of questions I’ve been putting out to readers every Monday morning for the past NINE (!) years. (It’s like a kickstart for your brain.) I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.

  1. How do you feel about spidery lashes?
    Maybe I’m not rock ‘n’ roll enough for ’em. I see them in magazines and Instagram and think, “Ooh, artsy! I should try that,” but then I try them, and I feel like it looks like a hot mess.

    Also, I spend my entire life trying to remove clumps from my lashes, so I don’t understand purposeful clumps.

  2. Have you ever worn a gymnastics leotard in public?
    You’d think the answer to this would be “yes.” I mean, why wouldn’t one wear a gymnastics leotard in public, even if they weren’t a gymnast?

    But the real answer is “no, I have not.” πŸ™‚

    I think I have the height to be a gymnast (I’m 5’1″), but I don’t have any of the jumping or the prancing ability…or really any of the skills whatsoever.

  3. What was your favorite thing about the Olympics?
    Lots of things, but I loved hearing how everybody behind the scenes liked Usain Bolt. He’s supposed to be a really nice guy.

    I heard this one story where he’s being interviewed, and he hears the US national anthem being played in the background, so he stopped the interview so that they could listen to the anthem.

    I just thought that was very respectful and very cool.

  4. How many earrings are you wearing today?
    Two (I just have one piercing per ear), and they’re studs, so they’re hidden underneath my new haircut.

    I need to get some new hoops.

  5. Do you prefer little purses or big purses?
    The struggle is so real!

    OK, with little purses, I’m forced to edit down to the bare essentials, which is great, right, when you need to mobile? But with big purses, you can just keep stuffing them with everything and the kitchen sink.

    So I’m going to go with little purses.

    No, wait! Scratch that. I’m going with big purses, because I’d rather be prepared than not be prepared.

Time to head back to the kitchen now because even though I already drank a huge cup of coffee…it was decaf, and it’s not really doing anything for me, so tea it is! πŸ™‚

What are you drinking this morning? How was your weekend, by the way? Let’s have a good week, shall we?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

    1. I saw a pic on IG of literal spider lashes and it was cool and artistic and creepy in the best way. But in real life, “spider” lashes are not for me.

    2. Nope but I love the idea of wearing one with some cute cut offs!

    3. Stories about all the firsts, especially learning about Fiji’s first gold medal! And that pic of Usain Bolt smiling at his competitors behind him. And how this year was such a huge win for women. Women crushed it!

    3. What was your favorite thing about the Olympics?
    That it’s over 😱 I know I know…I’m probably the only person to not watch but it interrupts the today show which I love to watch in the morning and it was so annoying with the Olympic coverage 24/7. But I do love the gymnastics I do enjoy watching them!

    4. How many earrings are you wearing today?
    Zero. Gosh am I boring today or what! An earring-less Olympic haterπŸ˜‚

    Most of the time big but I love a small cross body when I’m out shopping it’s so much easier!

    Karen how are you and miss Connor doing? I wish she and Kate could have a real life play date. Kate just turned 3 months the other week and I feel like time is flying! Do you think you’ll ever do any baby/mommy posts? I understand if you don’t plan to…I’m sure you don’t want to stray too much from makeup but I’m sure there are many people here who might like baby related posts too! Like monthly updates on Connor Claire and your favorite products? Anyway just a thought:) Hooe you have a great week!

    1. How do you feel about spidery lashes?
    Sometimes maybe? But only with certain mascaras and outfits?
    2. Have you ever worn a gymnastics leotard in public?
    Yes but not as an adult! They were the center of many of my halloween costumes!
    3. What was your favorite thing about the Olympics?
    Charlotte DuJardin and Blueberry! Also that my alma mater if it were a country instead of a university would have been 12th in medals, go IU!
    4. How many earrings are you wearing today?
    0
    5. Do you prefer little purses or big purses?
    I want to be a little purse girl, but definitely go for the big purse!

  7. Erin says:

    Been a crazy day so far!

    1. How do you feel about spidery lashes?

    Not for me. I think it looks cool on the right person. I am not that person. I have very little lid space. It doesn’t look purposeful on me.

    2. Have you ever worn a gymnastics leotard in public?

    Yes!

    3. What was your favorite thing about the Olympics?

    I didn’t watch it this year. I got so turned off by the opening ceremonies. Plus I couldn’t watch it live on my computer through Comcast, it was always like highlight reels and stuff.

    4. How many earrings are you wearing today?

    0! My holes are all closed up.

    5. Do you prefer little purses or big purses?

    I want to be a little purse girl but I always end up with a big one. I think I might be able to transition to medium sized soon.

  8. Kate & Zena says:

    1. How do you feel about spidery lashes? Nah, I like them nice and separated.

    2. Have you ever worn a gymnastics leotard in public? I wore leotards in public when I was little.

    3. What was your favorite thing about the Olympics? Laura Graves and her dressage routine. It. Was. Beautiful.

    4. How many earrings are you wearing today?
    Just the one set.

    5. Do you prefer little purses or big purses?
    Medium sized purses. Not big enough where I can lose everything but not small enough where I can’t fit all of my essentials.

  9. Tatiana says:

    1. How do you feel about spidery lashes? Ugh, no. I’m all about feathery, defined, individual lashes. But if anyone out there likes them, then you do you! They’re just not a look I go after.
    2. Have you ever worn a gymnastics leotard in public? Does one with a skating skirt attached worn while skating at at competition count? If so, then yes. If stretchy skating costumes fall in a separate category, then no.
    3. What was your favorite thing about the Olympics? The equestrian events, then gymnastics, then diving.
    4. How many earrings are you wearing today? None. Just one of those crazy days where I forgot to put on jewelry.
    5. Do you prefer little purses or big purses? Hmmm. I love big purses, because you can put everything in them. At 5′ 1″ they get a little heavy and look over sized on me. Like the lightness of a little purse, but I feel so naked if I don’t have half my house with me at all times.

  10. Syah says:

    1. How do you feel about spidery lashes?

    Nope. I like volume and length without clumps, please. πŸ™‚

    2. Have you ever worn a gymnastics leotard in public?

    Nope! And I don’t plan to.

    3. What was your favorite thing about the Olympics?

    ….um. I don’t watch the olympics because I don’t have cable πŸ™ BUT! Singapore won its first gold medal hehe

    4. How many earrings are you wearing today?

    4 earrings, 2 on each ear. I just got a second lobe piercing last weekend. I’m kind of planning to get more…

    5. Do you prefer little purses or big purses?

    Oh sheesh. How about both? πŸ˜›

  11. lupe says:

    1. How do you feel about spidery lashes?

    I’m not into them. I would also probably look like a hot mess lol.

    2. Have you ever worn a gymnastics leotard in public?

    No, but that would be fun to wear!

    3. What was your favorite thing about the Olympics?

    They aren’t my cup of tea. Simone did have beautiful eye makeup though!

    4. How many earrings are you wearing today?

    I forget to wear my earrings sometimes. I didn’t wear any today.

    5. Do you prefer little purses or big purses?

    I prefer little purses, but sometimes I think I need a big purse. It’s hard finding stuff in there sometimes!

  12. Lulle says:

    1. How do you feel about spidery lashes?
    No, no, no. I want butterfly lashes, not spider legs!

    2. Have you ever worn a gymnastics leotard in public?
    Nope, not planning to anytime soon either!

    3. What was your favorite thing about the Olympics?
    Gymnastics is always my favorite event to watch at the summer Olympics!

    4. How many earrings are you wearing today?
    0. I rarely wear earrings, in fact my ear piercing are super sensitive and I often get a big irritation whenever I try to wear some. Which is weird because I’ve had those piercing for, like, 30 years (oh lawrd).

    5. Do you prefer little purses or big purses?
    Little purses! Purses always get in my way, so I only use crossbody bags that are small or thin enough to allow full range of movement, lol!

    And to answer the red eyeshadow question: I know the shade is really trending right now, but red-based eyeshadows make me look like I have some dangerous contagious illness, so no. That’s also the reason why I’m not buying Anastasia’s Modern Renaissance palette that everyone is raving about!

    Phew, it’s been a long and busy Monday here! Can’t wait for Caturday!

    1. How do you feel about spidery lashes?
    I don’t like them

    2. Have you ever worn a gymnastics leotard in public?
    don’t have one, no reason either

    3. What was your favorite thing about the Olympics?
    didn’t saw any . I realized a few weeks later they started the Olympics I guess my head was somewhere else.

    4. How many earrings are you wearing today?
    Two haven’t used my extra piercing in a long time

    5. Do you prefer little purses or big purses?
    well

    Here is the thing, I love big purses but big purses don’t love me.
    I can be very clumsy when I wear them. I almost caused many disasters in stores. I know I am small and that is why it gets easier to bump into stuff easily. Once I had to pick up stuff my big purse make me let things fall off.
