Thursday Poll

image from kissandmakeup.tv


I'm not sure what to say this week. It's been a short one for me but still feels like ages since last weekend. Time is funny. It plays tricks on you. When you are little, you feel time move so slowly. When you get older, you are in a daze and suddenly snap out of it and wonder where the time went. When you become a parent you see time zip by you. I am amazed at how quickly my little Darthypie is growing up. He's talking and gaining a bigger vocabulary every day. I am astounded when he recognizes letter and numbers because it seems like "just yesterday" that he was this little pinks squishy blob that would cry every 2 hours for food! I sometimes feel like time is passing me by and I could have, should have done more...but then where do I find the time to do all those things? Time is a cruel mistress. She plays tricks on you. You cannot control her, you can only watch as she flows by you. Where am I going with this cliche ridden and pseudo poetic rambling? No where. I just wasted some of your time. Now on to the poll!

1. Lip Of The Day? - Chanel Rouge Allure in Flirt. Peachy, pink, frosty and shimmery all at the same time. But I think I need a little more of a tan to pull this off.

2. What have been your recent beauty purchases? - Bobbi Brown Metallic Eye Shadow in Bash! Oh I can't wait to take pics and show you all. the most gorgeous shade of green!

3. Where did you go on your first airplane ride? - Puerto Rico! My family used to go to PR every year. We stayed near Rincon on the West side of the island. The first memory I have of flying is arriving back from PR in the dead of winter and walking across the snow on the tarmac. Yes. it was so long ago that you actually walked right up to the plane on the tarmac!

4. If you were stuck on a deserted island for a year and finally rescued what would you want for your first:
a) Meal; b) Makeup/Perfume Purchase; and c) Song? - a) Bacon Cheeseburger w/ Fries and a Coke Zero ; b) A Chanel Glossimer & Bond No 9 Astor Place ; and c) Wings/Paul McCartney - Maybe I'm Amazed (The song Mr. Sith and I danced to at our wedding)

5. What are you currently lemming makeup wise? - Oh I think I want Chantecaille Sel, Mica, and pretty much any taupe like shadow they make. The most magical taupe is the one I don't own.

  1. WOOHOO!! I get to be the first to leave a comment today! (doesn't happen often).

    LOTD: Lancome's Visionary which I just got in a GWP, a deeper nude, more for fall, but am test driving.

    Recent Beauty Purchase: Lancome's new POT Artliner in Indigo Charm which is a gorgeous rich try creamy blue, and no smudging! also their Cils Booster (so I could get the GWP that has the visionary lipstick in it)

    First Airplane Ride: Business trip to New Orleans, LA, I had never been on a plane until I was in my thirties. It was an experience, I discovered I hate take offs and landings, but am find once in the air. This was New Orleans before Katrina hit. It was amazing!

    If I was on a deserted Island for a year and were finally rescued:
    First Meal: Mom's Roast Beef and Mashed Potatoes with plenty of gravy!
    MU Purchase: UD 24/7 Bourbon Liner and whatever the latest, greatest mascara would be.
    Song: Van Morrison's Moondance

    What am I lemming Makeup wise: The Perfect Cheek Blush, Notoriety Quad and High Strung lippie from MAC's new collection. Also, STILL want Guerlain's Holy Smoke, but it's always sold out on Sephora!

  2. 1. Lip Of The Day? -

    mark. Glamzing (? If I was wearing my glasses, I'd just take them off and shove the lippie to my eye to read but I'm wearing contacts and should probably get reading glasses. I'm at that age, you know) Lip and Cheek in Screen Scarlett. Great red, disc'd of course.

    2. What have been your recent beauty purchases? -
    Lancome Color Focus or one of the color whatevers e/s pan in Provence. I got it at the Lancome outlet near work for $1.99 and it might be a tester pan. I actually got two because the cashier left the second pan in the pack even though I said that I thought it was $1.99 for one (and I don't need two of the same color either unless it was [insert name here])

    3. Where did you go on your first airplane ride?

    San Diego California visiting my cousins. I was about 3 and my sister and I were wearing chunky sweater mini dresses (1968 or so) that my mom knit. Shades of dusty rose in big stripes and short sleeves. I opened the little cup of salad dressing and spilled it all over me and my dad had a fit. Then he got mad because I wouldn't eat the salad because of the dressing. To this day I HATE French Dressing (plus it clashed).

    4. If you were stuck on a deserted island for a year and finally rescued what would you want for your first:
    a) Meal; b) Makeup/Perfume Purchase; and c) Song? -

    a) either Fish Kew and Diplomat Pudding from Flor de Mayo or Chicken Souvlaki with a fountain Coke from Viand

    b) Shu Uemura Lipstick in 165 RED maybe (I'd have to chek it out first). Perfume? Not sure. Maybe mark. Fig Basil Self Sanctuary scent spray which is disc'd.


    c) Either Nozze di Figaro or Don Giovanni starting Mariusz Kwiecien or a Kwiecien solo aria disk (which doesn't exist yet)

    5. What are you currently lemming makeup wise?

    O.P.I. Here today . . . Aragon Tomorrow. (oh and a shadow the color of pyrite or the goldish mica that you find on the ground)

  3. Eeeeek, I just got Bash too! Can't wait to see your post about it!

    And Coke Zero is all the rage here in Japan. Personally I like plain ol' Diet Coke.

  4. Un rien de temps et ce sera le jour entier!!

    1. Lip Of The Day? - Nothing. I'm naked faced today because I was in a rush to get to work. It will later be Maybelline Toffee Tango lipstick.

    2. What have been your recent beauty purchases? - Two of the new Maybelline lipsticks (Toffee Tango and Very Cherry). I think I told you about everything else before that. We really need to discuss Bash though. It's such a perfect, perfect eyeshadow.

    3. Where did you go on your first airplane ride? - Denver, CO. I was 18mos. I remember bits and pieces of the trip though!! Which is insane, because I'd expect a case of infantile amnesia, but I remember things that happened to me when I was a year old.

    4. If you were stuck on a deserted island for a year and finally rescued what would you want for your first:
    a) Meal; b) Makeup/Perfume Purchase; and c) Song? - a) OMG: Meat samosas, pernil y arros con habichuelas rosadas, and french fries. Multi-cultural grease fest! b)Bond Warhol Success is a Job in New York (which I totes deserve now that I have a new job!!) and a new powder foundation (I need your help here with this!!) c) I'd need to hear Coldplay's "Yellow" for personal reasons. And if that wasn't possible, then Dashboard Confessional's "Hands Down"

    5. What are you currently lemming makeup wise? - The new Urban Decay Book of Shadows 2 (you'll get a review ASAP), Chantecaille Sel eyeshadow, and Shu ME850 eyeshadow. And a new powder foundation.
