Thursday Poll

Poll Thursday is here again. The week is just zipping by. This Friday I have to go to little Darthypie's Halloween festival at his day care. I have no idea why they are holding it a week early. But whatever, it will be fun. He's going as Spiderman. Or as he says, "Maan" And I'll let you in on a secret. His costume is a pair of pyjamas. Yep. No sense in spending over $20 on a costume he's going to wear once. Know what I mean? Am I a horrible mother for not shelling out $35 for the Spiderman costume I saw at Target? In my defense he will have a Spiderman pail to collect his candy, which he is not allowed to eat! LOL OK. enough mommy stuff... on to the poll!

1) Mascara of the day? - My tried and true Shu Uemura The Basic mascara with Maybelline Colossal Volume layered over it. I'm really liking this combination!

2) Would you rather spend $200 on a one Holy Grail item, or $20 on just O.K. items? - I shudder to even think about spending $200 on any one beauty item but I do have a clarisonic brush and it is a godsend...even if it was less than $200. I say. Yes to $200 for 1 HG item. Quality over Quantity.


3) What is the weirdest name you ever gave a pet? - Trauma. Yup. I have a cat named Trauma. He has very hoarse meow and always sounds like he is complaining. He sounds like he is in the midst of a trauma every tie he speak. I think it fits him better than Trent, which was his original name.

4) What Makeup, Fragrance or other Beauty item what have you purchased just for the packaging? - The Lancome Lotus Splendor eye & lip duo. I couldn't help myself!


5) If you named an eyeshadow after yourself, what color would it be? - I think a Taupe for sure! And a plummy taupe with no glitter! Shimmery, metallic and almost wet looking on the lids.

  1. 1) Rimmel Glam Eyes... I wear this so much, I should just do a review of it, but I'm waiting for the tube to dry out so I can buy another one.

    2) Would you rather spend $200 on a one Holy Grail item, or $20 on just O.K. items? Toughie, because normally my HG's are about $20. If I had to drop $200 this product better be a miracle in a bottle, complete with angels and the whole nine yards. But, I would have to go over the quality vs. quantity assessment.

    3) What is the weirdest name you ever gave a pet?
    Uhh... well... my betas are Faydra and Mr. Hahn. But my car, which is close enough to a pet, is named Tahlly, which is short for Tahlullah Mae Boggs, a murder victim in a book I read a loooong time ago.

    4) What Makeup, Fragrance or other Beauty item what have you purchased just for the packaging? -
    Yes, my TiGi Bedhead Ceramic Nano Who-si-whats-it straightener, and my Burberry purchase was partly motivated by packaging.

    5) If you named an eyeshadow after yourself, what color would it be? Hmmm... well right now I'm really feeling a shade that is both silver and gold at the same time, but not too OTT, more subtle-y metallic that when you turn your head or are in certain lighting the color shifts. But in normal lighting is exactly silver and gold mixed together. Like Avons Spellbound nailpolish which I inadvertently spilled allover my nailpolish bag, but thats the shade I'm going for. Or something really crazy and glittery, or brown/olive/gold/black. Or they could rename Star-by-Night after me. I swear... ADD.

  2. 1) L'oreal full definition voluminous

    2) 200! That sounds like too much, even if I had it to spend! Can I spend $50 on a really nice item? :-) I do concur with the 'quality over quantity' argument though- within reason, of course!

    3) I'm one of those people that give 'human' names to my pets (my cats are named Max & Emma), so nothing too crazy... I love that name Trauma though!

    4) packaging greatly influences my purchase, but I don't think I've ever bought anything only for the packaging...

    5) some shade of taupe, probably a brownish taupe with a pewter-ish shimmer/sheen to it

  3. I wouldn't have bought Darthypie a costume either - kids grow too fast!!

    1) Mascara of the day? - L'Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black, as usual

    2) Would you rather spend $200 on a one Holy Grail item, or $20 on just O.K. items? - $200 on one HG. That was easy.

    3) What is the weirdest name you ever gave a pet? - My betta fish's name is Hot Carlos. Hot Carl is a super gross sex act where you, uh, poop in someone's mouth...and I wanted a Hispanic fish so I changed Carl to Carlos.

    4) What Makeup, Fragrance or other Beauty item what have you purchased just for the packaging? -Uh...I don't know.

    5) If you named an eyeshadow after yourself, what color would it be? -
    My Joey shadow would be a deep, warm plummy taupe LIQUID eyeshadow.
