Thursday Poll

There has been a feud in my home for the past week. It's been long and drawn out and crippling. Who is feuding? My Machines! My Computer refuses to talk to my Camera, and vice versa. I have a ton 'o pictures on my camera yet, when I plug my camera into the computer The computer refuses to recognize it. The two devices are not on speaking terms. Even when I take the memory card out of the camera and plug that into the computer...nope. nothing. The computer knows that the memory card is from the camera and continues the stalemate on talks. I imagine mediating talks between a union and an employer must be as frustrating. Sure lipstick swatches aren't as important as getting better retirement benefits but in the beauty blogosphere dang...they might as well be freakin gold! So that's why you have seen so many posts this week with stock photos or "updates" from MAC and Sephora. Yeah. I had to take a lazy way of blogging this week. I like earning my comments that people leave. Not by re-hashing some e-mail I got ...that you probably got too...but by showing you all an actual product, describing my experience with it, loving it or hating it and telling you if you should even bother buying it...that's what I love about blogging. So this week is a wash. I hope to settle the fight between Computer and Camera this weekend. If I don't, expect to see more posts about stuff I don't need to photograph. Ballz! Oh no. I didn't mean I'll be reviewing "Ballz". No; quite the contrary. It's just a slang expression to show frustration and disappointment.
On to the poll.

1. Blush Of The Day? - Chanel Jouse Contraste Blush in Narcisse. I have a serious dip in the blush. I'm hoping to hit pan some time next summer!

2. Last item in which you "hit pan"? (Face powder does not count..too easy) - My ArtDeco eye shadow primer. I scooped the last bits out this morning. On to my next jar! Oh and I had hit pan on my Chantecaille The Coral compact a year ago, but someone ::cough Mr. Sith cough:: knocked it off the counter and it finally shattered everywhere. It's OK. I wasn't really using it, but I still had not taken pictures for my PAN PRON extravaganza. Oh well. Not like I would have been able to get those pics off my stupid camera anyway.

Which of Snow White's 7 dwarfs describes you best and why? (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey) - I think I'm Grumpy...what with the camera issues and all.

4. How many blushes do you own? - 11 or 12 if you count the one in the Chantecaille palette. I had an epiphany a few years ago that I pretty much only like to wear my Chanel blushes. Once in a while a non Chanel blush will catch my eye, but for the most part I decided to stick with Chanel. It's easier for me because I seriously had over 25 blushes to choose from and it was giving me a headache in the morning when I did my makeup. I was starting to become a "Blush Hoor" and already being a "Taupe Hoor" and "Foundation Hoor" and "Highlighter Hoor", bing a "Blush Hoor" seemed too much. Now my blush stash is much more manageable and I don't feel like I'm missing any colors. I have exactly what I need. *do not use this statement against me the next time I buy a new blush and write about it here*

5. Do you make your bed every morning or do you leave it unmade? - I leave it unmade. Mostly because Mr. Sith and I wake up at different times and you can't make a bed if there is someone in it. Plus. I really don't see a need to make it every day since I'm just gonna get it messy that night. We change our sheets every week, so on Sundays it's wonderful to get into a freshly made bed, but honestly, I don't have the time or energy to do it every day.


  1. 1- Ironically, the same blush as last Thursday. (NYC coral bronzer) Not sure why.
    2- I recently hit pan on a Rimmel quad, a L'Oreal True Match blush, and my old bronzer and actually, I tossed the first 2 because there was just a thin ring of colour left which fell apart when you tried to pick it up with a brush. Oh and my Avon Magix foundation- but I have a backup at the ready.
    3- Sleepy. Very groggy today.
    4- Currently only 2. (Eek!) But I have one coming from Fyrinnae and I am considering a few fall shades.
    5- Unmade. This dates back to living on the third floor at my parents' house, where nobody ever saw or cared if my bed was made. (In my defense, the room was tidy.) Now, my husband and I share the sheets but use separate blankets since he's always warmer than I am, but neither of us cares to make the bed, and we leave at different points in the morning, so even if I made it, he'd mess it all up so he could read in bed after I leave. We do need to change our sheets more often though...he doesn't care but I get skeeved out.

    wv: maddame (lol)

  2. 1. Blush Of The Day?

    ELF All Over Color Stick in either Pink Lemonade or Persimmon. It was there, I grabbed it and stuck it on. I think it's Persimmon because it's not as shiny as Pink Lemonade which actually ferments on me and gets very colorful. I like these even though they smell like, oh I don't know -- bandaids I think.

    2. Last item in which you "hit pan"?

    My third to last tube of Revlon Superlustrous Lipstick in Go Chili, a discontinued HG. Haven't hit pan on a non-face powder item since I stopped using powder eyebrow stuff THOUGH I've finished some brow pencils. I am down to about 2.5" of my Revlon Wet/Dry eye pencil in Blackest Black. Thank God I have 2 more! Disc'd of course.

    3. Which of Snow White's 7 dwarfs describes you best and why?

    Sleepy -- always, Sleepy. DH says I was born tired.

    4. How many blushes do you own?

    40? I could probably go through the inventory I keep in my head one by one but see #3 above.

    5. Do you make your bed every morning or do you leave it unmade?

    DH makes it. Actually, he gets up about an hour before me. I get up and immediately take my shower and by the time I'm out, he's made the bed, or else I help him. Sometimes I'll make it if he hasn't done it yet. We actually only sleep with a bottom sheet and coverlet so it's really only straightening out the coverlet.

  3. 1. Old Faithful- Lancome Miel Glace. It'll always make me look alive.
    2.Hmm...either UDPP or Stila Kitten e/s
    3. Grumpy, totally. I am achy and congested, and hoping I didn't get my flu shot too late.
    4. I think around 15. Mostly my Stila Convertible Colors, but a few powder blushes. I went from having about 40, but Specktra's sale forum helped my problem.
    5. I make it. I have issues with leaving it unmade.

  4. 1. Blush Of The Day? - BB Blushed Rose Pot Rouge. Bobbi has perfected my own personal brand of flush with this one. HG yo.

    2. Last item in which you "hit pan"? my beloved GA Face Fabric. Does foundation count?

    3. Which of Snow White's 7 dwarfs describes you best and why? Definitely Grumpy - I'm a cranky NYCer. What else can I say?

    4. How many blushes do you own? - I think I have about 40 in my stash - honestly I have no idea. But I started getting into BB Pot Rouges (just in time for them to start DCing them slowly) - lucky me. These are seriously the best thing ever.

    5. Do you make your bed every morning or do you leave it unmade? DH makes it because he wakes up after me...he started doing this when we bought our apartment. It makes us feel more adult, plus there's nothing nicer than getting into a fresh, crispy bed every night.

  5. 1. Blush Of The Day? - None

    2. Last item in which you "hit pan"? You know there is a e/s quad that I bought AGES ago containing gold/brown shades. Now I have many e/s quads or singles or palettles with similar colour combos but somehow something about this particular one always comes out great on me and I love it. That is the only thing that I will be hitting the pan on so I have been laying off as much as possible. The sad part its some Almay compact I bought on a whim and they don't make them any more - yah go figure that I'd be hoarding some drugstore brand over higher end stuff lol.

    3. Which of Snow White's 7 dwarfs describes you best and why? (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey) - I am def. a cross between Grumpy and Sleepy - Slumpy? Greepy? Throw in a bit of Sneezy too for this week since hubby decided to give me his cold - aghh.

    4. How many blushes do you own? -
    Hmm at least 10 for sure, I should do a count and also cut my stash down to actual wearable numbers.

    5. Do you make your bed every morning or do you leave it unmade? - Leave it unmade. I get up at a different time then DH and I barely make it out the door on time so I can't be bothered every day. And like you I do sheets every week so I don't bother making it up other days.

  6. Crap, and I've been super lazy about all the reviews I need to do! I'll get on that starting tonight. I have so many - BoS2, Pixie Epoxy, more Paul and Joe, the Chanel Noir lipsticks...

    1. Blush Of The Day? - Paul and Joe Face Color #12. I am beyond enamored with it, and I need to pick up a couple of the new ones. Preferrably #15 and #16.

    2. Last item in which you "hit pan"? (Face powder does not count..too easy) - What the fuck is pan? I actually haven't hit pan on anything, unless a finished mascara counts. Sigh.

    3. Which of Snow White's 7 dwarfs describes you best and why? (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey) - Dopey lol!

    4. How many blushes do you own? - Um, not counting bronzers or highlighters? Probably around 25-30? I think more, even. I'd have to count.

    5. Do you make your bed every morning or do you leave it unmade? - I very rarely leave my bed unmade. I had to today because I was in a rush to leave for work. I love coming home to a neat bed =)
