Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 439

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. What’s your favorite kind of apple?
    Honeycrisp, but I don’t get them often because they’re very expensive here.
  2. What’s a type of shoe you never wear?
    I never wear mules because I always feel like my foot is about to slip right out of them.
  3. Do you like Oreo cookies?
    I LOVE Oreo cookies, but I can’t remember the last time I had one.

    Oh! So good with milk…

  4. What do you usually use to apply foundation?
    Different things. It depends on the formula and how much time I have and the look I’m going for. Like, I’ll usually use my fingers or a beautyblender with tinted moisturizer or liquid foundation, and I’ll use a dense foundation brush with stick foundation.
  5. Zippers, buttons or Velcro?
    Buttons!

    There’s just something old-fashioned about them.

  6. Would you ever wear sequined pants?
    Only if they were COMPLETELY covered in sequins. 🙂

6. Would you ever wear sequined pants?

Happy Labor Day, my fellow laborers. I hope you’re having a good one.

Did you do anything fun over the weekend? I had a nice time at a barbecue that one of my neighbors held yesterday. I wore Connor in my baby carrier, and she was really well behaved the entire time.

Interestingly, I also learned that there are lots of cat ladies in my neighborhood. I had a fascinating conversation with one of them who has a gorgeous flame-point Himalayan with blue eyes.

Of course we showed each other pictures of our cats on our phones.

Of course. 🙂

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

    We had a bbq last night where our friend introduced his new love to everyone. Such a fun night! I did learn that I’m too old, 41, to be staying up until 2am!

  2. Chelsea says:

    1. What’s your favorite kind of apple?

    Probably Jazz apples. Honeycrisps are great too. It’s the start of apple season here in Michigan, can’t wait until the local honeycrisps come in!

    2. What’s a type of shoe you never wear?

    I’m with you on mules, I don’t like them.

    They’re best in ice cream! There’s no good gluten free cookies and cream ice cream out there.

    4. What do you usually use to apply foundation?

    I have a flat top EcoTools brush.

    5. Zippers, buttons or Velcro?

    Depends on the item of clothing! I love the look of buttons.

    6. Would you ever wear sequined pants?

    Yes, definitely.

    I picked up some rainbow fairy wings for Halloween at JoAnn’s inexpensively, so I’m going to buy some bright color eyeshadow to go with it. Very excited

    1. What’s your favorite kind of apple?

    Honeycrisp. Yum!

    Spike heels. Think I have a pair or two lurking at the bottom of my closet, and no urge to wear them, ever.

    No, I’ve never liked the way they cram into my molars.

    Fingers most often, but for more coverage I use a Real Techniques brush. I have yet to try my Beauty Blender knockoff.

    5. Zippers, buttons or Velcro?

    Zippers — love the modern look, and love how quickly they fasten.

    6. Would you ever wear sequined pants?

    Yes, absolutely!

  7. Amy says:

    Apples: MacIntosh. But usually eat Fuji, bc that’s what usually ends up in the fruit bowl and they’re fine! When I was little a guy at church was a world famous apple grafter who produced new apple varieties. I always found that fascinating!

    Shoes: super high anything.

    Oreos: Love them but only indulge once a year or so. As it happens, that was last week. Kind of like Girl Scout cookies… so delicious until you hit the limit and can’t look at anything sweet for six more months, haha! I have to say I’m intrigued by all the new varieties, though, and am dying to taste just one Swedish fish Oreo because… Bc what on earth is up with that?!

    Foundation: fingers, always! Occasionally top it off with a kabuki brush. I have a feeling I’d love a beauty blender but haven’t sprung for one. The cost and the cleanup combined scare me away. I can barely keep a few brushes clean!!

    Closures: chunky buttons on wool coats. Zippers on sport coats. Velcro on toddler shoes.

    Sequins: love them! I’m sure I’ve had sequined palazzo pants at some point. They’re hard to clean but so worth it, you get lots of bang for your buck!

    Happy week!

  8. Karen4 says:

    1. What’s your favorite kind of apple?
    So hard to choose, but I love a crisp Cortland.
    2. What’s a type of shoe you never wear?
    Mules. They just look funny to me–like an unfinished shoe
    3. Do you like Oreo cookies?
    LOVE them! Original are the best, but the golden ones are tasty as well.
    4. What do you usually use to apply foundation?
    almost always a brush
    5. Zippers, buttons or Velcro?
    Buttons
    6. Would you ever wear sequined pants?
    Yes, but I agree with you that they’d have to be completely covered in sequins!

  9. Efrain says:

    1. What’s your favorite kind of apple?
    I don’t really know what kind of apple they’re but they’re yellow, I think here we don’t really care about apple varieties.

    2. What’s a type of shoe you never wear?
    “Tribal” boots, they’re the ones with really long points.

    3. Do you like Oreo cookies?
    I only like the cookie not the filling, which I give it to my sister.

    4. What do you usually use to apply foundation?
    Fingers or a flat foundation brush, I want to buy a flat top one to buff the foundation or a Beauty blender.

    5. Zippers, buttons or Velcro?
    Buttons because zippers can smell awkward when they’re made from metal and Velcro wears off.

    6. Would you ever wear sequined pants?
    I don’t really know because Zara had a sequined blazer two years ago and I looked like I was a presenter from a cabaret. But in my mind everything is better with sequins.

    Today I went to the mall and now I want MAC Whirl or Teddy Velvet, also Kat Von D Lolita is gorgeous. So now my list is even longer.

    Happy Labor Day!

    1) Fuji! They’re good for baking.

    2) Those leather boots with open toes. It just doesn’t make sense to have a cold weather shoe with open toes.

    3) Yes, but have you tried the Newman organic version? Those are very good too.

    4) Fingers.

    5) Buttons. They’re easier to replace and they give me less problems.

    6) Yes. Red sequined pants with lipstick to match.

  11. Petra says:

    1. What’s your favorite kind of apple?
    Fuji or Pink Lady are my faves – think I need to get a few today if I can find them…
    2. What’s a type of shoe you never wear?
    Right now I live in my sneakers so anything with a “high” heel is a no-no
    3. Do you like Oreo cookies?
    Nope – chocolate chip cookies though… NOM
    4. What do you usually use to apply foundation?
    A beauty blender knock off. Since I found that my foundation brushes have gotten a lot of rest – plus right now almost all of my makeup (including brushes) are in storage awaiting our move.
    5. Zippers, buttons or Velcro?
    I am a big fan of zippers – easy and quick but there is a certain charm in buttons 🙂
    6. Would you ever wear sequined pants?
    Not really my style – maybe for halloween or something ^^

    Happy Monday! I am desperately longing to get a little kitty of our own and I am working the hubby to adopt to sisters at our local shelter where I volunteer (not so much right now during my pregnancy since I am not allowed to clean the litter boxes). We’ll see what happens when the move is complete 🙂

  12. 1. What’s your favorite kind of apple?

    I like ’em all, really.

    2. What’s a type of shoe you never wear?

    Loafers.

    Never had them! (I know, how is that even possible)

    4. What do you usually use to apply foundation?

    My fingers or the Beauty Blender usually.

    1. What’s your favorite kind of apple?
    I love Jazz apples.

    2. What’s a type of shoe you never wear?
    Really really tall high heels, they hurt my feet too much.

    3. Do you like Oreo cookies?
    I do but not my favorite.

    4. What do you usually use to apply foundation?
    Fingers, beauty blender or a blending brush.

    5. Zippers, buttons or Velcro?
    Buttons!
    6. Would you ever wear sequined pants?
    Probably not, I don’t mind sequins but I don’t think they are meant for my body type, especially sequined pants!

    I had a relaxing day yesterday, didn’t have to work, went out to breakfast with Mike’s uncle and aunt visiting from PA. His aunt is British so I always love talking to her. She told me that when we come to visit them in PA I will have to teach her how to do her makeup 🙂

    I also went shopping with Mike’s mom. We went to Ulta, DSW and Charming Charlie!

  14. Erin says:

    1. What’s your favorite kind of apple?

    Oh that’s tough. I love Honeycrisp too but I’m a big fan of Jonagold and King David too. I will also take a Fuji or a Granny Smith.

    2. What’s a type of shoe you never wear?

    Clogs…

    3. Do you like Oreo cookies?

    Nope

    4. What do you usually use to apply foundation?

    A Real Techniques Expert Face Brush or a BB.

    5. Zippers, buttons or Velcro?

    I’m not a fan of Velcro, it attracts pet hair.

    6. Would you ever wear sequined pants?

    If I lost weight, probably. My ass is so big a sequined ass might cause blindness in butt oglers!

    As for the weekend, it was another rough one. I had complications for an outpatient procedure with a blood clot so I spent some time in the ER. Luckily, I had Monday off to recover at home. So what did I do, go to Spehora and try Bite Squid Ink and MUFE Water Blend. Homegirl is paying for it now!

    I love golden delicious apples from a farm, esp. in the Fall. I never wear Stilletos. I love Oreos, but rarely eat them. As a kid I threw away the creme in the middle, too sweet. I apply my foundation usually with a brush. I love buttons. I would only wear sequined pants if I was 20 lbs. lighter and they would have to be the ones Michael Jackson wore in his “Rock With You” video or as a pantsuit.

  16. CL says:

    1. What’s your favorite kind of apple? Fuji.

    2. What’s a type of shoe you never wear? High heels.

    3. Do you like Oreo cookies? I like the yellow ones, even though they leave this weird oily aftertaste in my mouth.

    4. What do you usually use to apply foundation? RT sponge or RT Expert Face Brush.

    5. Zippers, buttons or Velcro? Zippers on purses, buttons on shirts, Velcro on shoes, mostly.

    6. Would you ever wear sequined pants? Never.

  17. Lulle says:

    1. What’s your favorite kind of apple?
    Pink Lady and Granny Smith.

    2. What’s a type of shoe you never wear?
    Platform shoes with high heels, I couldn’t walk with them to save my life if I was chased by a dragon…

    3. Do you like Oreo cookies?
    No, I really don’t. No offense to all the Oreo lovers out there, I know they’re popular, but it tastes like absolutely nothing but sugar to me. The cookie part doesn’t remotely taste like anything chocolate-y.

    4. What do you usually use to apply foundation?
    My favorite tool is my MAC 187 brush, a soft dual fiber brush. It’s good to apply a very thin layer since it’s not dense at all, but it creates more even coverage than my fingertips.

    5. Zippers, buttons or Velcro?
    Buttons! Remember that time in the 90s when all the major jeans brands started doing pants with buttons only? I love those!

    6. Would you ever wear sequined pants?
    Sure, why not? In black if I can pick my color!

    Hope you have a great week Karen! I kept looking for the Monday Poll in today’s posts, until I realized that today’s Tuesday… Long weekends get me all confused, lol!

    I have to say it’s my first time visiting your blog and I’ve been sitting here for more than an hour, just enjoying it all! I find you refreshing, thorough with your reviews, and fun… did I see that right, 9 years of doing this blog?! Dang, girl- WELL DONE!!! And side note- you and I have similar skin tones so I’ve been taking notes w/ a lot of the shades you’ve mentioned- you’re saving me some time trying on different colors (although I’ll likely use that freed up time to meander the aisles some more)! Much thanks 🙂

    (FYI, I never leave replies, so now you know how much I like your site)

    1. What’s your favorite kind of apple? I love all things apple, and Honeycrisp is, too, my favorite
    2. What’s a type of shoe you never wear? I don’t wear mules for the same reason- I end up walking all funky just trying to keep them on my feet.
    3. Do you like Oreo cookies? YES! Can’t eat them unless I have milk handy, though
    4. What do you usually use to apply foundation? 2 very lovely brushes sit on my vanity, unused, because I’m always applying foundation rushed, with my hands
    5. Zippers, buttons or Velcro? How bout toggles? I love toggles.
    6. Would you ever wear sequined pants? Never. Sequined skirts? Heck yeah.

  19. LeeLee says:

    1. What’s your favorite kind of apple? German apple cake, maybe…? Yeah, I really don’t like apples.
    2. What’s a type of shoe you never wear? TOMS!!!! (sorry, world)
    3. Do you like Oreo cookies? Not until they find a way to make an oreo cookie that in look, shape, texture, flavor is an exact replica of a chocolate chip cookie. Then I will like it.
    4. What do you usually use to apply foundation? Fingers
    5. Zippers, buttons or Velcro? Zippers for most things. Fabric covered or unique enamel buttons for others. Never velcro.
    6. Would you ever wear sequined pants? Yes, in a tuxedo stripe down the side of each pant leg, only in black, only late at night in a dark elegant place.
