Thursday Poll

 
Last week I went a little political on you all. It was tax day in the US and I naturally went from taxes to government to political movements in the country. I may have offended some of you all. That was not my intent. Actually I try very hard to keep my political views off of this blog, but sometimes I slip. I just want to let you know that 1) Opinions are like assholes. Everyone has one and some stink more than others. and 2) Just because we may not agree on political lines I think we can agree that we share a common love for makeup and beauty items. It doesn't matter what political party you belong to, lipstick is lipstick and out love for it should never keep us apart just because we may not see eye to eye in the voting booth. I mean, come on. We all have to agree that Hillary Clinton's makeup during her campaign for President looked amazing, and Sarah Palin's lipstick was always perfect. I think we can all agree, regardless of their political views, that Congresswoman (R-Minnesota), Michelle Bachman's makeup looks pretty nice, and Senator (D-California), Dianne Feinstein
could use a little eye shadow and lipstick from time to time. Regardless. I hope that I didn't lose any of you in my last Thursday rant just because of my political views. if you are going to stop reading the blog I want it to be because I suck at writing and my opinions on makeup are screwy...not because who I did or didn't vote for.
Now. On To The Poll!

1. Lip Of The Day?
- Currently wearing Urban Decay lipstick In Rush. I plan to write a review shortly...but let's just say that it's a My Lips But Better color and cool toned.

2. Last movie you saw in a theater?
- Oh goodness it's been so long. Sadly I think the last movie I saw was Avatar. I didn't like it one bit. It seems to be the story of Pocahontas only with blue people. But the 3-D graphics were cool. Yikes. Marley just reminded me that I did indeed see Sherlock Holmes in the theater and I loved it. I mean Robert Downey Jr. AND Jude Law? Yum!

3. Latest beauty item you purchased?
- I have no idea why, but I picked up 2 Dolce & Gabbana lipsticks from Saks during the Friends and Family Sale. I blame Sabrina over at The Beauty Look Book for my D&G Obsession...you should check out her blog if you haven't already. Ia lso blame a lot of my purchases (Not just D&G) on a lovely woman over at the Autumn Masquerade Blog. I'm so glad she is back!

4. What's the weather like today?
- (Nice safe non political topic). Today will be a sunny 73 degrees with a slight chance of showers in the evening.

5. If you could give one Celebrity a makeover who would it be and what would you do?
- Oh this is tough b/c there are so many train wrecks out there and I'm so very perfect (Sarcasm) I would chose Lindsay Lohan. I would scrub off the self tanner, cut her hair & extensions, Ditch the harsh black liner and put her in some soft beiges with green & copper for the eyes. Dye her hair a soft red and curl her hair and put her in a pretty peach lipstick (Not Frosty!). Oh and feed her a cheeseburger...or seven.

  1. I enjoyed last week's musings :). Actually I like all of your musings.

    1. Lip Of The Day?

    WnW Natural Wear Lip Shimmer in 108Cinnamon, which is a wonderful minty, glossy red. On the berry/ruby side. Semi-sheer. I think these are their version of the Burt's Bees lip shimmer thingies.

    2. Last movie you saw in a theater?

    Besides the Metropolitan Opera's movie cast of Lucia di Lammermoor which was already a year or more ago? I think it was either "Teacher's Pet: The Movie" (where I yelled at a kid in the theater) or "Festival Express", whichever came out later.

    3. Latest beauty item you purchased?

    Hair DYE!

    4. What's the weather like today? - Warmer but it seems really hazy out my office window (or, technically, the windows behind my manager's cubicle)

    5. If you could give one Celebrity a makeover who would it be and what would you do?

    I'm going against popular opinion here but Jlo needs a lot of color. None of this honey skin, honey hair, honey eyes boring bronze blah blah . . . She looked way better with her pale olive, red lips, dark hair Selena look.

  2. 1. Lip Of The Day? - MAC Fanfare. I had planned on Brave Red, but then I went a little louder with my eyes...and outfit...and jewelry..so I stuck with a neutral

    2. Last movie you saw in a theater? - Ummm...Sherlock Holmes, probably. I'm dying to go see Death at a Funeral

    3. Latest beauty item you purchased? - Oooo! I got the buzzed-about Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure nail polish (with the rainbow flakies) and it's divine! I'm wearing it over Essie Sexy Divide (deep metallic purple) and I'm in love. I also got one of the new Wet n' Wild trios- Sweet As Candy? It's a really pretty neutral, wearing that today too.

    4. What's the weather like today? - Windy, rainy, and a little chilly.

    5. If you could give one Celebrity a makeover who would it be and what would you do? - I'm going to ignore the crazy pop stars who have fraggle hair extensions and stuff, and say that I'd like to give Grace Coddington a good deep conditioning/shine treatment, pencil in her eyebrows, and put a reddish berry stain on her lips. Love that woman.

  3. You are entitled to your opinions! Thank you for letting me post mine :) I love this country for that very reason- free speech. Poor Bridget Bardot gets knocked with a fine every time she speaks out in France (i'm not saying her opinions are worthy, but sucks to not be able to say what you want). Pity.

    1. Lip Of The Day? - Urban Decay from the new face case- carney i think.

    2. Last movie you saw in a theater? - Date Movie- could have been better honestly.

    3. Latest beauty item you purchased? - oh hell last week i purchased waaay too much from the Urban Decay website b/c of the F&F 30% discount. I am such a sucker. Still hasn't shipped yet...grrr. One of the items is the new Dew Me makeup setting spray.

    4. What's the weather like today? -Sunny, humid.

    5. If you could give one Celebrity a makeover who would it be and what would you do? - Maggie Gyllenhall. Nothing more than some lessons on posture and a support bra. Yikes.

  4. 1.Lip of the day? My HG l/s TheBalm Letter to the Editor.

    2. Last movie you saw in a theater? Alice In Wonderland

    3. Latest beauty item you purchased?
    A sampler set of mascaras from Sephora.

    4. What's the weather like today? No idea. I'm in a window-less office and when I came in to work it was dark and foggy.

    5. If you could give one Celebrity a makeover who would it be and what would you do? Pam Anderson...deflate her. LOL

  5. So what are your thoughts on Nancy Pelosi's makeup? Yeah I always thought if anything, Sarah Palin did have nice glossy lips. I just never really listened to anything come out of her mouth...okay enough from me!

    1. LOTD - Chanel Glossimer in Wild Rose.

    2. Last movie saw in the theater - Hot Tub Time Maching - yea that's right I said it. It had 2 of my favorite things: 80's theme and John Cusack....mmmm....John Cusack....

    3. Last beauty item purchased - from the Sephora VIB sale: Philosophy's Help Me serum and a perfume rollerball - Fresh/Citron de Vigne. I may be stopping by the Saks counter for that sale - so if I purchase anything I will blame you =)

    4. I think it's suppose to be upper 60's for us here in SF. Weather has been crazy even for us - Sunny on weekends and rain/wind Mon-Wed. Yes, I am not complaining about that!

    5. Agreed - the Lohan for sure, Britney too while I'm at it. I would make Kim Kardashian tone down her smokey eyes because she really is a lovely girl with a lot less makeup!
    I would pay good money to see that Lindsay Lohan make over. Till then I can just watch Mean Girls over and over and enjoy a very age appropriate/fresh faced looking Lindsay!

  6. 1. Lip Of The Day? - its an Estee lauder gloss day again this week, pure color crystal gloss in psychedelic today. i love this!! i love looking at the tube. Its like a sunny-day-in-a-tube!! i take it out of my purse just to look at it.

    2. Last movie you saw in a theater? - oh wow. Transformers probably. The first one, that is how long it has been since i saw a movie in a theater.

    3. Latest beauty item you purchased? -I just purchased mac studio fix fluid in nc15 but i kinda think it is too dark... some days, it looks great, even though I know it is a shade too dark... some days it just looks nice and natural. Other days, like today, it has oxidized and turned into orange face A-la-lohan. I am not pleased and not sure what to do =( Not sure what to try next as I like the coverage and the finish that this gives but it is really not light enough at all. dang.

    4. What's the weather like today? - oh it is gorgeous outside, not sure how warm it is but it is supposed to be in the 70s or low 80s!

    5. If you could give one Celebrity a makeover who would it be and what would you do? - this one, I can't even rack my brain.

  9. 1. Lip Of The Day? -
    I'm waiting for ups to get here so I can try out the UD lipstick I got in Peroxide. (10-2pm my ass.) Other than that, I'm just wearing lip balm right now.

    2. Last movie you saw in a theater? - er, I need to think a bit.. I'm pretty sure it was back in november, that cartoon-space movie. :/ I don't remember the name.

    3. Latest beauty item you purchased? -
    I've been stressed & it shows in my spending. The last GOOD beauty product I purchased was the new NARS So Famous set with the multiple.. I didn't think I'd like it so much!

    My blackberry has issues, it's claiming 'partly sunny' while it's actually around 71 degrees.

    5. If you could give one Celebrity a makeover who would it be and what would you do? -
    I'd choose Dita Von Teese. She doesn't need any help at all, I'd just really love to do her makeup. Katy Perry would be another celebrity that I'd love to practice makeup on. :)

  10. 1. Lip Of the Day?- nothing yet. today is my do nothing until 4pm day so I am enjoying it

    2. Last movie you saw in a theater?- mine would have to be Sherlock Holmes also. Loved it. Can't wait for the new iron man though :P

    3. Last beauty item you purchased?- that would be my rouge allure in genial. I am in lovee with it. It leaves a really nice popsicle-esque stain. mmm

    4. What's the weather like today?- pretty nice but the weather has been rather bipolar lately. I was raining and then sunny on and off all day yesterday.

    5. What celebrity would you make over and what would you do? -I'd have to agree on Lindsay. I thought of her even before I read your answer. First, I would make her sleep nonstop for about a week. Then I would feel her hamburgers also. I would deep condition her hair and dye it back red. And I would get that girl some proper foundation. (hopefully the weeklong sleep would help the tan go down a bit)

  11. 1. Lip Of The Day? Morgana Minerals Azalea Blue. It's OMG gorgeous. (You can see it in my blog entry today.)

    3. Latest beauty item you purchased? I placed an order with Cherry Culture to pick up more of my Nyx Eye & Lip makeup remober since I love it to pieces. It's my favorite eye makeup remover. Doesn't hurt my skin. It is coming to me along with a few friends: Milani Gold metallic eyeliner, Nyx long lip pencils in Natural & Current, LA Girl Rock Star Nail Lacquer in Punk & Head Banging.

    4. What's the weather like today? It's 82 degrees out. The pollen level is high for grass and weeds, which means that my allergies are annoyed but not quite as crazy as when the tree pollen is high.
