Thursday Poll



I'm not too concerned about computers taking over the world right now. I have thought about the artificial intelligence that computers use and it's not so great. I know this because these computers can't even make the most logical suggestions or send me information that I would even need. For example, Face Book's computer suggests friends to me that I would cross the street if I saw them on my side of the sidewalk
 

Hello! This guy looks like a cross between a homeless serial killer and a pirate. DO NOT WANT! Then there are the constant e-mails that hotmail suggests that I would like. But sorry, the last time I checked I didn't have a penis nor did I need it enlarged. I don't need cheap medications from Canada and I have no relatives in Nigeria that I have inherited money from. FAIL.
Seriously. think of all the energy that is wasted suggesting that I can be the new sugar daddy to some Lithuanian hottie or by notifying me that I won the UK lottery. If they, whomever "THEY" may be, would use their talents for good, rather than spam imagine the super computing power we would have. I would wake up and in my e-mail would be discount codes for makeup that I didn't even know I wanted. Chanel would be sending me eyeliners in colors I knew I wanted but was too afraid to ask for. Facebook would let me know that some overly generous cosmetics PR person wanted a new friend and they would send me free makeup to blog about and to give away to the readers. And I would finally have a computer suggest a foundation that actually didn't suck!
But we all know what a pipe dream that is.
We are so far away from the realization of
Skynet capabilities it's not even funny. Until then I'll make my own decisions.
On To The Poll


1. Blush Of The Day?
- Chanel Joues Contraste in Mocha. A nude blush with plum undertones. Great when I pair it with a smokey eye.

2. If you were the eighth dwarf, what would your name be?
- Duh! Taupey!

3. Last beauty item you received in the mail?
- China Glaze C-C-Courage nail polish! Oh it's so beautiful. Expect a review shortly!

4. Do you prefer eating the frosting off the cupcake or the cupcake first?
- I eat the cake part and then I eat the cake with the frosting on it. I honestly believe that one can never put too much frosting on a cupcake.

5. Best Customer Service or Sales Associate Experience at a cosmetic Counter/Store/Website? -
I was at the Guerlain counter looking for an eye liner and the resident MA was there and she re-did my entire face foundation, blush eyeliner, everything. She was very pleasant and told me how to apply everything and didn't pressure me to buy anything other than what I came for. When I had more money I went back and bought some more items from her and she had some new holiday items that she let me peek at before anyone else and let me buy before they were put out for sale. She got a customer for life just because she was nice enough to help me one time.

  1. 1. Blush Of The Day? -

    Until I warm up it's Mother Nature, color Freezing Cold Outside (yest, I forgot blush today, AGAIN!)

    2. If you were the eighth dwarf, what would your name be? -

    Crazy

    3. Last beauty item you received in the mail? -

    Gosh eye shadow quad and a Gosh lipstick from a nice swapper in Ireland.

    4. Do you prefer eating the frosting off the cupcake or the cupcake first?

    I eat the frosting off cupcakes firs but save the icing on cakes for last.

    5. Best Customer Service or Sales Associate Experience at a cosmetic Counter/Store/Website?

    Probably the manager of the CCO, who is always so nice and helpful. She actually found and held a BB Ruby Lip Sheer for me.

  2. 1. Blush of the day? None, I'm barefaced and *gasp* may not put anything on today. Thursdays are my lazy day, my work week is over and I'm usually pretty exhausted.

    2. If you were the eighth dwarf, what would your name be? Oh, soo many options ;) Sarcasty? Dreamy maybe? Baker? Oh, I know, Indecisey, lol...

    3. Last beauty item you received in the mail? R&R blushes from the Hautelook sale, Spank and Kinky I believe.

    4. Do you prefer eating the frosting off the cupcake or the cupcake first? I actually like the cake and frosting pretty equally, so I like eating them together as Betty Crocker intended.

    5. Best customer service or sales associate experience at a cosmetic counter/store/website? Probably at the Chante counter at my local NM, a really young SA, whom I wrongly assumed might not be the most knowledgeable, was so helpful in finding a foundation. She didn't push the sale, was sweet and actually knew a lot about her line and makeup in general, and gave me tons of great ideas for looks and combos I might never have thought of. The generous samples didn't hurt, either ;)

  3. 1. Blush Of The Day? - Bobbi Brown Blushed Rose Pot Rouge - I could seriously wear this every day.

    2. If you were the eighth dwarf, what would your name be? Muffiny

    3. Last beauty item you received in the mail? I've been nailpolish obsessed lately too - my latest NP is Illamasqua Rampage which is on my toes right now. But my latest beauty item to arrive is probably Sue Devitt Koh Samui Silky Blush, which is the perfect nudey pink. I got this in a swap :D

    4. Do you prefer eating the frosting off the cupcake or the cupcake first? I enjoy them together - ying to yang. If the frosting is good, there can't be too much of it, but sometimes it's just a little too buttery and not sugary enough. I wanna feel those sugar granules in between my teeth.

    5. Best Customer Service or Sales Associate Experience at a cosmetic Counter/Store/Website? It's a tie: the Chanel counter at Macy's - the ladies there are great to me and people I bring to them. They knew me by name for a while and I even had one of the makeup artists there do my wedding makeup. 2nd would be the guy at GA at Bloomies Soho who got me involved in Face Fabric and their lipsticks. He is supergay and adorbz.

  4. 1) MAC Enough Said Blush

    2) Phlegm-y... right now I have a mild form of mucus trying to suffocate me... slowly.

    3) A FREAKING GORGEOUS STICKGLOSS FROM THE LOVERLY SITH :D!

    4)I'm a glutton, I like to eat frosting and cupcake in tandem via one huge bite that consumes half the cupcake and leaves the other half cowering in fear.

    5)Is it bad that I never really have one, because I don't want to be served as a customer... I want to go in swatch, make my own conclusions, buy my sh*t and get the hell out of dodge before anyone is the wiser. That being said the local ladies at my Dior counter and The Body Shop are pretty fab.

  5. blush of the day: NARS Zen

    Dwarf? Sniffy because I always have a runny nose

    Postal beauty: Nars Pop Life and Toundra velvet matte lip pencils

    cupcake style: more like a bit of both. too much frosting isn't my scene, but too little is worse!

    best SA/MA? hmmmmm. Not sure. There is a woman at the NARS counter in Bloomies downtown NYC that I really like. I am just not there enough to take advantage of her skills and lovely personality.


    :)

  6. 1. Blush Of The Day? - some Rosie Jane Cheek Gloss I got as a RAOK. I'm testing it. not very pigmented though, but works decently ok on my lips.

    2. If you were the eighth dwarf, what would your name be? - Assy

    3. Last beauty item you received in the mail? - Bobbi Brown Pewter Chrome shadow, which I have yet to open or inspect since it isn't Christmas yet!

    4. Do you prefer eating the frosting off the cupcake or the cupcake first? - Frosting first, cake last, because the cake is my favorite.

    5. Best Customer Service or Sales Associate Experience at a cosmetic Counter/Store/Website? - Hettie and Caroline at Paul and Joe! They are the two sweetest girls imaginable and are always super patient and generous. I adore them and their recommendations are always spot on, and they both give a fabulous makeover. Second runner up would be Mr. Edward Bess himself =)
