Thursday Poll



OK. I have learned my lesson. I am finally done with high end mascara...until Darthypie is out of day care at least. I now have my second case of Pink Eye in 12 months. Not only is Pink Eye contagious it also likes to breed in nice damp dark places like mascara and other cream eye products. Thankfully I was very aware of what I put on my eyes today so I can sanitize some items and throw away others. One item headed for the trash bin is my Shu Uemura - The Basic Mascara. This simple formula mascara had no frills, no big claims, nope. it was simply a great black mascara that didn't flake, held a curl and defined my lashes like no other mascara ever could. But at $27.50 per tube I can't afford to toss this in the trash before it's finished. Since I don't want to reinfect myself I'll be tossing this tonight. ::sigh:: I'm so sad. Buuuuuuuuuut...that opens the door to a lot of Mascara trials! I'm testing out 2 new Rimmel mascaras as soon as my eye is all better. I can't wait. The new mascaras sit in their flash shrink wrapped packages promising longer lashes, curvier lashes, glam lashes, flirty lashes oh so many promises. They sit there in the CVS bag, mocking me, whispering to me in the middle of the night..."Elvira! Wake up! Don't you wanna try me? I have a neat-o comb like applicator. Open me up. See what I'm like. It doesn't matter that it's 2AM and you have pink eye. Rip me open. You know you wanna. It'll make you feel good...feel good...feel good."
On To The Poll!


1. Mascara Of The Day
- NONE! Stupid rugrats at Darthypie's daycare and the legions of diseases they transmit! (note how I don't place blame on my perfect son because he's perfectly perfect?)


2. What is your favorite brand of lip gloss?
- I would have to say it is Chanel Glossimer, but I'm not opposed to falling in love with another brand, it's just that Chanel Glossimers are non-sticky, last for a long time and come in colors I like.


3. Current song you just can't get out of your head?
- The Nurse Who Loved Me by A Perfect Circle.


4. What are you waiting for in the mail?
- The
Big Buddha Brush from the Urban Decay Hautelook sale. I got it for $9! (Saved $27!) I knew there was a reason I kept putting off buying that brush!

5. How often do you bid on Ebay? What was the last item you won?
- Oh at least once a month. Last item I won was a "Buy It Now" for a devil hello kitty lip balm. Yeah. I need it!

  1. sorry to giggle, but i too have lost many a product thanks to my son's infectious eyeballs. By the way, chuck e cheese is a cesspit of pink eye. Even if you wash your hands and use hand sanitizer.....the pink eye finds a way.

  2. I had the same thing happen to me a couple of months ago. I was loyal to my L'Oreal Voluminus mascara but decided to splurge and get high end mascara. I went to Sephora and asked a SA what product gave you the false eyelash look and she suggested MUFE Smokey Eye. I tested out and she was right - I loved it! Low and behold 3 weeks after I buy the mascara my son gives me pink eye and I have to throw it away - man that was hard to do. I actually entertained trying to think of some way to salvage the mascara for a moment until I came to my senses. So I feel for you. I can't wait for your reviews on the new ds mascaras.I had the same thing happen to me a couple of months ago.

  3. 1. Mascara Of The Day - Clinique High Impact Curling- I have to wear a tubing mascara to work, because my boss makes me cry so often. It sucks. I had an awesome interview yesterday, so keep your fingers crossed that it works out for me!

    2. What is your favorite brand of lip gloss? - I really like MUFE's glosses (in the wand tube), but they're not pigmented enough. I'm going to have to go with MAC lipglass, because of the color options.

    3. Current song you just can't get out of your head? - The whole Animal album by Ke$sha - I really like it. It's got a fun glam sound, and she does some cool stuff with electronica beats.

    4. What are you waiting for in the mail? - Whole bunch of swaps, including Essie Steel-ing the Scene (a major want) and MAC Bubbles l/s (another major want). I also pre-ordered the Chris and Tell l/s from Lancome- I LOVE LOVE LOVE coral lipstick all spring and summer!!

    5. How often do you bid on Ebay? At least once a month. I scored a gorgeous amethyst cross necklace for my BFF who just had a baby girl and named her Violet. I'm thinking I need to start stalking Stila Camellia CC, since it's the only one missing from my collection.

  5. Yay - it's time for my favorite weekly poll!!

    1. MAC - Plushlash - my favorite and I bought it at the company store for less that $10

    2. Favorite lipgloss:
    It's been NARS for a while but lately I have been crushing on MAC's Dazzlecreme and P&J's lip lacquer.

    3. Current song - Lady Gaga's Bad Romance....sorry if this offends some but "La..La..oh la la.."well you get the picture.

    4. What am I waiting for in the mail? My paycheck stub to let me know my direct deposit will go into my account tonight!

    5. How often do I cruise Ebay?
    Never - I'm too scared to buy anything. I keep thinking with my dumb luck I'll get ripped off!

  6. I got the brush too! Though the Hautelook site was a mess yesterday. I think every beauty blogger and everyone on MUA was on it!

  7. 1. Mascara Of The Day -
    A nice basic Rimmel I received in a swap. Super X or something. I like it.

    2. What is your favorite brand of lip gloss?

    Not a gloss wearer but I used to love Maybelline Lip Polish, which was more of a liquid lipstick I guess.

    3. Current song you just can't get out of your head?

    Toreador Song from Carmen

    4. What are you waiting for in the mail?

    Nothing at the moment. I just received the item I was waiting for yesterday.

    5. How often do you bid on Ebay? All the time and the last time we won was back in December. We've slowed up a bit because of trying to buy a house.

  8. Rimmel Sexy Curves is just about the best mascara ever...EVER. People think I'm wearing falsies all the time.

    I'm a new follower...so I haven't seen one of your polls yet. What a great idea!

    1. Mascara Of The Day - Rimmell Sexy Curves...of course.

    2. Favorite lipgloss:
    I know it's so wrong to say this...but plain old Carmex. = /

    3. Current song - Black Eyed Peas - Boom Boom Pow...because it plays on 10 minutes loops at work.

    4. What am I waiting for in the mail? My Konad and Bitch Slap Cosmetics orders.

    5. How often do I cruise Ebay?
    Hardly ever...unless there is some random makeup thing I can't find it regular stores. Or I want some of those great no-name palettes.

  10. So behind on the Thursday Poll, since it's Friday now, ha! I'm sorry about your pink eye, by the way =(

    1. Mascara Of The Day - None yet because I woke up maybe 40 minutes ago and I'm not planning on leaving my place for a couple of hours. It will probably be GA Eyes to Kill, though. I've become very fond of it. Still not sure if I'm fond enough to pay for it, though.

    2. What is your favorite brand of lip gloss? - Hm, I love the Paul and Joe glosses, Chanel Glossimers, Becca lip glosses, NARS glosses, and even some of the MAC lipglasses.

    3. Current song you just can't get out of your head? - Black Moon's "I Gotcha Open" remix

    4. What are you waiting for in the mail? - a RAOK from a certain someone who I love =)

    5. How often do you bid on Ebay? What was the last item you won? - rarely if ever. the last item I won was years ago!
