Thursday Poll

image from kissandmakeup.tv

Thursday. One week from today I will be turning one year older! I don't even want to think about it. I don't feel older, but I think I look older. It's all that lack of sleep. I need to sleep more. I also need to have more sunlight. It has been rainy and overcast for several weeks and now that the sun is out I can finally take pictures of some new nail polishes I have been testing. Last but not least. I think I'll be having a special giveaway for my birthday. Look here tomorrow to see what it is. The winner will be announced on July 6th. On to the poll!


1) Blush Of The Day? - Chanel Joes Contraste in Caprice. It's a pretty neutral pink. Gives just the right hint of nude neutral color for when I do a smokey eye.

2) Speaking of eyes. What color are your eyes? Do you like that color or wish you had different colored eyes? Would you or do you wear contacts to change your eye color? - I guess I have gray-ish, blue-ish, green-ish eyes. I like the color but I would love to have ice blue eyes like Megan Fox. Actually I would just like to look like Megan Fox. lol. I used to have green contacts but that was back in 1990 and the technology to make them natural looking wasn't so great. My eyes were SOOOO green. I wish I had a picture.


3) What is your favorite Season for makeup? - I think I like the fall best. I get to use all those dark shadows and rich jeweled toned colors on my eyes. Hey Smokey Topaz is a jewel and it looks taupe! Don't judge! Anyway. I also love the deep red lips I see in the fall too. But THIS fall will be extra special because MAC will be releasing their Black Collection. Read more about it
here
But what’s better than black lipstick, is the MAC Volcanic Ash Exfoliator that comes out with this collection. If you remember
my post about VAE. I love this stuff so much that I was forced to write poetry about it. Well now they have brought it back (I like to think I had a small part in that...even though I know I didn't) and I will be buying multiple jars of the stuff. Watch out for it in October ladies.

4) Things people buy that you think are a waste of money? - Those Joke a Day texts sent to your phone or any other text thing sent to your phone that is advertized on MTV. I think Designer shoes & clothing for babies and toddlers is a complete waste of money. While my list can be quite long on this topic I'll leave it at only 2 things.

5) Most Used Blush in your stash? - Chanel Narcisse, but Chanel Rose Petale is coming in a close second!

  1. Happy B-Day in advance Elvira!

    1) Blush Of The Day? - Au natural my dear

    2) Speaking of eyes. What color are your eyes? Do you like that color or wish you had different colored eyes? Would you or do you wear contacts to change your eye color? - I have brown eyes. If I could pull it off I'd totally wear green contacts but it would look too fake with my skin tone, so I have never bothered.

    3) What is your favorite Season for makeup? - I love Spring and Early Summer because I actually want to dress up and look pretty LOL

    4) Things people buy that you think are a waste of money? - Evian. Water is just water.

    5) Most Used Blush in your stash? - You know its the Body Shop Moroccan Rose's Roseflower Blush in no.02 Fusia. I reach for it all the time, and even bought a back up from the recent Body Shop sale LOL

  2. 1) Chantecaille Charming
    2) Dark, Dark Brown - I like them but always envied the blue-eyed girls too
    3) I don't change my makeup that seaonsally but I look way better in summer so I have to spend less time on the foundation etc and can spend more time on just fun stuff (although...I guess I tend more towards natural looks in the summer anyway so, bah, I don't know).
    4)Hmmm...I guess I can't point fingers too much on this one but if forced to answer, I don't spend much on shampoo...not sure how much better one shampoo could be then another.
    5) GA#10 (winter) tied with Narcisse (summer)

  3. 1) Blush Of The Day? I went for the bronzy Meow Cosmetic Sunsplasher in Light Siamese, meow!

    2) Speaking of eyes. What color are your eyes? Do you like that color or wish you had different colored eyes? Would you or do you wear contacts?

    The colour of my eyes is one of the very few things I am happy about. Too bad they are framed by crepey eyelids and short, stickstraight lashes. My eyes are a mixture between green and blue, which can alter colourwise depending on mood and makeup. I use to flatter myself for having eyes similar to Helena Christianson, but that would be a bit exaggerated ;p

    3) What is your favorite Season for makeup? - I will vote for Fall as well, because the lipstick colours are often very flattering and the eyeshadows have these wonderful autumnesque colours that are stunning.

    4) Things people buy that you think are a waste of money? - Gambling in general, or buying expensive drinks in a bar, or that ridiculous sports car.

    5) Most Used Blush in your stash?
    Probably Benefit Dallas or the blush of this day (meowcosmetics)

  4. 1) Blush Of The Day?

    Apt 5 (Duane Reade's late house makeup line) blush in BL-01 -- a kind of neutral plummy color. Not quite matte. I love their blushes. The rest of the line was crap.

    2) Speaking of eyes. What color are your eyes? Do you like that color or wish you had different colored eyes? Would you or do you wear contacts to change your eye color?

    Shit brown eyes but I like to refer to them as olive brown. If you look closely, you'll see that they are raw umber with burnt sienna stars around the pupil. Translucent.

    I wouldn't change them with contacts (they are never convincing) but I would love to have either lighter or darker brown eyes (deep velvet brown) or eyes the color of DH's -- deep green/gray with a little bit of gold around the pupil. In the old days that would be considered hazel except his are dark and velvety.

    3) What is your favorite Season for makeup?

    Winter, Spring and Fall. Summer seems to be too incline toward glosses and ligher lips.

    4) Things people buy that you think are a waste of money?

    Most things with designer logos I suppose. I agree on designer clothes for babies and todlers when they really need disposible clothing because of spit up and other messiness.

    5) Most Used Blush in your stash? - I have no idea, really. They all get rotated pretty easily. I go through phases. Right now, I suppose it's the Apt 5 BL-01.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY ELVIRA!!!!!!!!!

  6. 1) It's 3 pm and I haven't chosen a fated blush yet...

    2)They are a medium brown with some green, black and red thrown in for good measure. Makes them turn a weird color in the light. I really want yellow brown eye with a sharp black circle around the exterior of the iris.

    3) Fall - I like dark and vampy and rich colors seem to fare better on my skin. ALSO, I LOVE THE MAC STYLE BLACK COLLEX! (AND THANKS FOR THE LINK :DDDDDDDDDD)

    4) Designer handbags, brand name groceries (don't ask, lol.), over retail for DC-ed cosmetics etc.

    5) Probably MAC Earth to Earth Blush.

  7. Happy b-day!! I love birthdayss.

    1. I don't use blush. My cheeks are so so so red. So if I do use it, it looks... bad. This answer negates question 5.

    2. My eyes are a nice brown color. I sometimes love them, sometimes hate them. If i could change my eye color, I'd have them to be purple/violet colored. I know, wierd right? I wouldn't use contacts because I have glasses and last time I used contacts, I got an eye infection. T.T

    3. My fave season is spring! It's not too hot where your makeup will melt and it's sunny enough to wear bright and pretty pastel-ey color.

    4. I hate it when people find a need to buy clothing for pets. I'm sorry, but your pet is fine without those 20$ shirts and bootie things. I don't think that your pet enjoys that. Also I don't think that it's necessary to see a movie the instant it comes out. I think that it's better to just wait it out and go to a cheaper movie theater that gets new movies at a later time. Or wait for DVD. You can rent for a dollar at Pathmark/supermarket at those redbox thingies.

  8. 1) Blush Of The Day? benefit thrrrob

    2) My eyes are black (I mean, maybe dark dark dark brown, I just call it black) I never wanted to try colored-contact because the only time I saw it in real life on a girl, it creeped the crap out of me.

    The color worked out pretty well for my skin tone and hair color so I mean, why bother changing it?

    3)Spring or fall, when they dont. During summer I like to wear bright clothing so makeup would be a bit extra. During winter I am just getting too lazy to put anything on.


    4) Any implants (beside teeth) I don't get putting fake stuff inside the skin...Oh, yeah, and those contact which gives you huge iris...

    5)It used to be Stila cherry crush, but it felt like flushing money down toilet after the 2nd tube (each one lasted less than 15 applications btw) so now my new favorite is Benefit thrrrob.


    P.S. A Plain list of survey question at the bottom would help a bit, as people don't have to keep looking back or copy-paste-delete-fill-in-again.

  9. 1. BB Powder Pink w/ MAC Blushbaby on top
    2. Dark brown - I love my eyes b/c you can't see the pupils unless you shine a light into them.
    3. Summer - I like light shimmer and I look better with a little bit of color
    4. Overpriced creams like La Mer. Moisturizer is moisturizer - if it keeps you dewy and doesn't clog your pores, you're golden!
    5. BB Calypso Coral

  10. I'm so excited your birfday is soon!! =D

    1) Blush Of The Day? - Jane Be Pure Mineral Oil Free Bronzer in Copper Mountain

    2) Speaking of eyes. What color are your eyes? Do you like that color or wish you had different colored eyes? Would you or do you wear contacts to change your eye color? - My eyes are very dark brown, almost black. If I could have different colored eyes, I'd want red eyes or the whiteout contacts Marilyn Manson used to wear.

    3) What is your favorite Season for makeup? - I prefer fall just because my makeup isn't melting off my face, and I can get away with the dark brown lipcolors I prefer.

    4) Things people buy that you think are a waste of money? - Oh goodness, I have a ton I could list here but refuse to because I don't want to be flamed. I'll tell you on gchat if anything lol

    5) Most Used Blush in your stash? -the Jane one I was wearing today, MAC Afterdusk, Becca Frangipani, BB Blushed Rose PR.
