Thursday Poll

image from kissandmakeup.tv

Ugh. Tardy again with my Thursday poll. Darn life keeps getting in the way of my blogging. I am not going to comment on Mrs Obama's dresses for the inauguration, but I am going to say that Joe Biden's wife (Dr. Jill Tracy Biden) had the most amazing pair of knee high boots on! Yowza! Move over Justin Timberlake. Dr. Biden is bringing Sexy Back! OK. I digress. but damn. I wish I wore skirts so I could wear boots like that. (I usually wear pants as this is all that my fat butt can look good in these days.) OK. Enough about Vice President's Wives. On to the Poll!


1) Lip of the Day? - Bobbi Brown Creamy Lip Color in Berry Mauve. I love the color I just am not in love with the texture. It feels waxy and heavy. I got it when I got that Bobbi Brown Set for the Nordies Anniversary. A very nice set indeed. Most if not all of the products have been super useful.


2) Plans for the weekend? - The purgatory between the last NFL playoff and the Superbowl is painful. But not as painful as the day after the superbowl when the cold hard reality that there will be no more football for months stares you in the face. This is when I pick myself up and start watching Hockey. Thank god UFC is year round! So that being said. My plans are NOTHING. I need a hobby.


3) Current favorite makeup item that you discovered/rediscovered/acquired/etc? - My Guerlain Oriental Metal eye kohl. It's just the perfect taupe. After working with the new L'Oreal HIP kohls I have come to appreciate the finer texture of the ones from Guerlain. However, that's not to say I don't like the ones from L'Oreal.


4) Current Lemmings (desires) for makeup/skincare? - I am lemming Chanel Glossimer in Blizzard. I want this so bad and I have no idea why. I'm craving Frosty! lol


5) What hair product have you bought recently that you are really liking? - Sebastian Potion 9. Wow. They repackaged this and I swear to god they changed the formula or the pump now dispenses the perfect amount of product into my hair because it feels really soft and looks glossy. I don't blow dry my hair. I usually wash, condition, and then put gel on the ends. Ever since adding in Sebastian Potion 9 it seems so much happier. Love this stuff!

    5) I love the Ion Color Care Line from Sally's. I ran out of the shampoo recently and my color has started to fade like crazy. I need more of it!

  3. 1) Lip of the Day? - Chapstick lip butter. I might get around to a real LOTD later...but for now it's just lip balm.

    2) Plans for the weekend? - For once, nothing really. The house is clean and I don't really have any errands that need running. Can just relax and be lazy. I'm good at that. I'd like to take a dip in the jacuzzi with SO at least once.

    3) Current favorite makeup item that you discovered/rediscovered/acquired/etc? - I'm such a dunce. I swapped my Stila Blanc palette. Had to have it back again. New one arrived yesterday. Love.

    4) Current Lemmings (desires) for makeup/skincare? - Some more l'oreal kohls even though my eye allergies are so bad I can't tolerate much eye mu.

    5) What hair product have you bought recently that you are really liking? - I haven't purchased anything all that recently, but I was just musing this morning about how very soft my matrix haircare makes my hair feel. I use the anti-dandruff line...my scalp is suuuuper dry for some reason, and I get flakes. :( The matrix stuff does really well for me. However, I think after I finish these I'm going to switch back to garnier. Matrix is so much more $$$ and garnier is pretty much just as good.

    2) Plans for the weekend? - Nada! And that is good. :-)

    3) Current favorite makeup item that you discovered/rediscovered/acquired/etc? - Prestige liner in Suede- perfectly soft taupey-brown to smudge into my lashline- love it!

    4) Current Lemmings (desires) for makeup/skincare? - Dior spring stuff! Sephora is taking fuh-evah to get it in, and I have a GC burning a hole in my wallet!

    5) What hair product have you bought recently that you are really liking? - Hamadi leave-in... I think it's primarily just shea butter, but a little dab does a great job of taking away the 'just-washed' fuzziness in my hair

  8. 1) Lip of the Day?
    ck Calvin Klein Delicious Light Lip Gloss in MAVEN. I hate the way lipstick feels on my lips, and this gloss is so pigmented and yummy smelling, I love it!

    2) Plans for the weekend?
    Brunch on Saturday, Work on Sunday :(. I love hockey! And pretty much nothing else, sports wise. Which teams do you cheer for?

    3) Current favorite makeup item that you discovered/rediscovered/acquired/etc? - MAC Paint pots. I've been looking for an eyeshadow primer than wouldn't crease (UDPP & TFSI both did) after a 12-hour shift... they kind of do alone, but when I put them over UDPP no creasing after a 12-hour shift at the hospital! :D

    4) Current Lemmings (desires) for makeup/skincare?
    I really want to try a Lunasol palette... and otherwise the Electric Pink gloss from the Lancome Spring collection, and the NARS makeup primer with SPF.

    5) What hair product have you bought recently that you are really liking?
    My hair is dead straight all the time, so I don't buy a lot of hair things, but I'm thinking about trying Tsubaki Golden Repair since the normal version is FANTASTIC...

  11. I'm always terribly late with your Thursday poll. I blame it on class. I'm also terribly late with that sheet mask review. It needs to be edited =( my apologies!

    1) Lip of the Day? - Bobbi Brown Creamy Lip Color in Dark Chocolate. I had forgotten about this lipstick. I've been so non-buttmouth lately, and I thought I'd bring it back today! It pairs nicely with the LORAC Croc palette. And I love the texture. I should get more of these.

    2) Plans for the weekend? - Well this past weekend DBF and I did the following (pleez bear with this long list): went to MoMA, went to Times Square and ate shrimp, walked to Chelsea Piers, went to the Met, had McDonalds, watched Anchorman, and made German flashcards so I could study. It was quite pleasant =)

    3) Current favorite makeup item that you discovered/rediscovered/acquired/etc? - My LORAC Croc palette. Perfect, perfect, perfect! I should use it more.

    4) Current Lemmings (desires) for makeup/skincare? - Ok this is fairly long: Stila Pomegranite Smudge Pot (it's RED, not burgundy!!), Dior Elegante quint (despite having 100 MAC dupes), Dior Elegant Taupe liner, UD Midnight Cowboy lipstick, UD cream shadows (the two taupe shades), UD Undergroud liner...I'm planning a HUGE Sephora haul once the damn UD Spring stuff appears on the site. I'm going to get everything I listed (most likely minus Elegante) plus a new FF Glossing Creme and a new Philo Purity.

    5) What hair product have you bought recently that you are really liking? - I don't switch hair products often. Years of experimentation have shown me what works best. I may try new things every so often but I never stray from my HGs. But I used to use Potion 9 and it was good...but the texture was strange. I may need to re-try it though!
