Thursday Poll



Verbose: ver·bose [ver-bohs]–adjective - characterized by the use of many or too many words; wordy: a verbose report.
I thought I would start off with the definition of Verbose, because some people may overlook the meaning. I have the word VERBOSE in my blog title above. I do want to say that I have misrepresented myself. I say I'm "occasionally verbose" and if you read here regularly, you know that's a bald faced lie. I am ALWAYS verbose. I use too many words. I write too much. I overstate my point. So it always amuses me when I read criticisms that I am too "wordy" that I take too long to get to the point. Duh! I can't shut the fuck up. I thought you all knew that by now. Funny thing is. If you know me personally and we actually talk rather than text or your just read my rantings here, you would know I don't really say all that much. I interject with a witty comment from time to time but I don't talk too much. I think that's because I have surrounded myself with friends that either do enough talking for the both of us, or friends that are comfortable with few words and a lot of silence. I consider myself shy, but people that know me probably wouldn't say that I am. I have a mild case of social anxiety when in crowds and I really don't like calling attention to myself...however my days of combat boots and purple hair would prove otherwise. I'm a walking talking contradiction...a paradox. I claim to hate musicals but know every song from the Sound of Music. In fact right now the song from The Pirates Of Penzance "The When You Had Left Our Pirate Fold" (A Paradox) is in my head as I type. Why am I this way? I have no idea. But I'm comfortable with myself. After 30+ years I am finally comfortable with who I am. Do I wish I was was someone else, had different personality characteristics, approached issues/problems a different way? Sure...from time to time, but all in all I'm OK with who I am. There are some people that probably wish I was different, or wish I saw the world the way they see it, but that's just not going to happen. The sooner they stop wishing I was different and accept who I am as I am right now, the better things will be.
I must say I got to the point rather quickly on this one.
On To The Poll!

1. Blush Of The Day? - Chanel JC in Pink Satin. Long since discontinued. This cool pink frosty blush reminds me of Pink Explosion JC from the current fall collection only Pink Satin has more frost to it.

2. Do you consider yourself Outgoing or Shy, and would your friends contradict you? - Well you read above. I like to think I'm shy, but my rapier wit and my outspoken, almost brutal honesty makes people think otherwise.

3. In your opinion, what was the most over hyped product you ever tried? - Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara. Oh boy this mascara didn't work for me at all. I know it works for others, and that's great, but I just didn't understand what was so great about it.

4. You may have noticed that I have been doing a lot of nail polish posts lately. Are you all cool with this or would you like to see less? You won't hurt my feelings if you say you don't like them. - Obviously I can't answer this question.

5. What is your favorite blush brush? - I'm currently on the hunt for a new one. However I do adore my MAC 116 Blush Brush.

18 comments:

  1. 1. Blush Of The Day? - Illamasqua Kiss described by sephora as a dusty plum.

    2. Do you consider yourself Outgoing or Shy, and would your friends contradict you? - Sometimes painfully shy. Most of my friends thought I was just mean before they met me, now they'll add I'm a info nerd too.

    3. In your opinion, what was the most over hyped product you ever tried? - Lancome's vibrating mascara used it once, very wet & smelly.

    4. You may have noticed that I have been doing a lot of nail polish posts lately. Are you all cool with this or would you like to see less? Very cool with it.

    5. What is your favorite blush brush? - I have a lot of brushes but don't have a favorite. Which ever one is clean... I should do that today.

  2. 1. None. Today I am pale and (somewhat) interesting.

    2. Outgoing.

    3. YSL touche éclat. It is NOT magic. Or a concealer.

    4. LOVE them. Very helpful to see it applied.

    5. Shu Uemura Pony flat blush brush.

  3. 1. Blush Of The Day? - None, right now. I am all natural sans makeup today. besides the fact that I didn't get out of the shower till 7:50 (woops) and had to be at work by 8 (totally missed it) I am getting my new foundation in the mail this morning hopefully so I didn't want to fix my face just to re-fix it when i get the makeup in. woot woot :)

    2. Do you consider yourself Outgoing or Shy, and would your friends contradict you? - I'm outgoing, and my friends would all agree. (not that i have a million of them anyway) hehe... i have never met a stranger. Unless a person intimidates me, I usually am comfortable and have no problems in social situations. Now sometimes I have some social anxiety too, but it is random and I can't figure out yet WHY it happens, or when to expect it.

    3. In your opinion, what was the most over hyped product you ever tried? - UDPP. I found it miserable to blend on top of, and didn't POP colors as well as I expected from all the raves i had heard. I love cover girl lash blast, though. Its wonderful for me!!!! :)

    4. You may have noticed that I have been doing a lot of nail polish posts lately. Are you all cool with this or would you like to see less? I am cool as a cucumber with it, although I have nails bitten to the point of no return and don't wear polish, I enjoy reading just about anything you write. You may be verbose, but I AM also very verbose. I cant stop talking. This is true in real life as well. When my SO and I were living together while I was pregnant he used to say MEAGAN- SERIOUSLY- ITS TIME TO SLEEP, I LOVE YOU, GOODNIGHTand i would quiet for a minute and say, 'Derek, did you know xxxxxxxx?' *silence* MEAGAN? GOODNIGHT!!! SERIOUSLY!! that would go on and on and on for bout thirty minutes. LOL
    You and I are on a pretty similar wavelength as far as writing goes and your tastes in alot of things are completely relatable to me!! :D

    5. What is your favorite blush brush? - I have no favorite brush of anything as I am just barely building up my brush collection again. I can pretty much use anything fluffy and large, right now I am using one of those cheapo new blue packaged brushes from Walmart, this one is a skunk type flat top highlighter brush, and i love it for blush and highlighter. Its kind of rough but it really does good at blending. even for a 5 dollar brush, its pretty nice.

  4. 1. MAC Stark Naked
    2. My friends would say I'm outgoing, but I really prefer to be at home, reading a book.
    3. UDPP- didn't work for me at all, TFSI is much better.
    4. I love it!! I'm a nail junkie as well, and I love seeing new colors.
    5. I really love my Ecotools blush brush...it's soooo soft and fluffy.

  5. 1. Blush of the day--A Shu one that came in my Nordy Annv. palette so I don't know the name.

    2. I consider myself shy, however my family and friends dissolve into hysterical laughter when I say this. I too am brutally honest and opinionated which is probably why we're friends. That, and the fact that you are totally awesome and have a razor sharp wit which I appreciate.

    3. A Jane highlighter that was super hyped on MUA--I looked like a disco ball and was horrified when I saw myself in the sunlight.

    4. I'm down with it

    5. My new Sigma blush brush--fluffy goodness! Also the Sigma Fiber Duo brush--blush application perfection.

  6. 1. Blush Of The Day? - RnR Kinky...love it

    2. Do you consider yourself Outgoing or Shy, and would your friends contradict you? - I think I meet this in the middle. I am not brutally honest, but I am honest but I can come off as bitchy...

    3. In your opinion, what was the most over hyped product you ever tried? - MACs Stereo Rose...I mean is gorgeous but I love Petticoat more.

    4. You may have noticed that I have been doing a lot of nail polish posts lately. Are you all cool with this or would you like to see less? You won't hurt my feelings if you say you don't like them. - I LOVE Nail polish. Have you purchased anything form the MACs new nail trend? They all look gorgeous.

    5. What is your favorite blush brush? - I have a couple but I lean torwards my Sonia Kashuk one the most

  7. fwiw, I love your verbosity. =)

    1. Blush Of The Day? - I haven't quite got makeup on yet but I'll probably be wearing Chanel In Love (the irreelle one).

    2. Do you consider yourself Outgoing or Shy, and would your friends contradict you? - I'm definitely shy and I think most friends would agree.

    3. In your opinion, what was the most over hyped product you ever tried? - NARS Orgasm. Soooooo frosty. T_T;

    4. You may have noticed that I have been doing a lot of nail polish posts lately. Are you all cool with this or would you like to see less? You won't hurt my feelings if you say you don't like them. - I love nail polish!! :D :D :D

    5. What is your favorite blush brush? - Ahhh, I don't have a favorite per se. I use my Ecotools full size blush brush for the regular ones (LM, Shu, Chanel), the mini mineral powder brush for the medium pigmented ones (some Shu, Tarina Tarantino, NARS, R&R Spank) and my MAC 188 for the really pigmented ones (R&R & NARS Taj Mahal) . I guess if I had to choose it'd be the Ecotools mini powder brush from the mineral set since it's the most versatile in a pinch.

  8. 1. Chante Winter bloom. I had an interview today so I had to go more natural. I like it. Nice and glowy

    2. I think this all depends on my mood. I'm really pretty shy but I play it off well so all my friends would consider me outgoing.

    3. Maybelline great lash. I think there is some kind of conspiracy going on here. It was the worst mascara ever yet its always voted best. I think maybelline puts some kind of addictive drugs in there that apparently i was immune to :P

    4. I dont mind nail polish posts. I usually dont read them because I already have too many nail polishes but I like to look at the pictures.

    5. I actually really like the eco tools blush brush.

  9. "I claim to hate musicals but know every song from the Sound of Music." OMG ME TOO!!! The only musical I don't hate are The Sound of Music and Grey Gardens: The Musical.

    1. Blush Of The Day? - MAC Stereo Rose

    2. Do you consider yourself Outgoing or Shy, and would your friends contradict you? - It depends on my mood. Sometimes I'm shy, like when I start a new job or I'm in a room full of strangers. Around friends, I'm talkative without being annoying. After a few drinks, I'm the girl who won't stop interrupting.

    3. In your opinion, what was the most over hyped product you ever tried? - Nars Orgasm. I'm NC35 and this looked like dirt on my skin. I tried it a few times, years apart and it just looks like ass on me.

    4. You may have noticed that I have been doing a lot of nail polish posts lately. Are you all cool with this or would you like to see less? I love nail posts - I got your back.

    5. What is your favorite blush brush? - Either my MAC 188 or my beloved Body and Soul blush brush, which is discontinued but it has the perfectly soft bristles and a gorgeous retro robin's egg blue handle.

  10. I think I'm just as verbose as you, if not worse at times. I love how we get bashed for being too wordy, but I'd rather get all the details about a product across. WE ROCK, YOU ROCK, AND I LOVE YOU SLUTBUTT <3


    1. Blush Of The Day? - What blush AM I wearing today? I don't remember. Hm. It's probably Paul and Joe #12 Face Color. Natural but flushed pinky-tan color.

    2. Do you consider yourself Outgoing or Shy, and would your friends contradict you? - I'm outgoing, there's no doubt about it, but sometimes I have to force myself to be social because I hate most people.

    3. In your opinion, what was the most over hyped product you ever tried? - FUCK LASH BLAST. UGH. FUCK THAT MASCARA HARD. FUCK IT! FUCK IT! I *LOST* eyelashes because of it. Worst product ever.

    4. You may have noticed that I have been doing a lot of nail polish posts lately. Are you all cool with this or would you like to see less? You won't hurt my feelings if you say you don't like them. - I'm fine with it, clearly.

    5. What is your favorite blush brush? - I love my EcoTools blush brush and my MAC 109...I'd love something that was a hybrid of them both though. Like a larger 109, if that makes sense?

    2. Do you consider yourself Outgoing or Shy, and would your friends contradict you? - I'm very shy, but I think only my boyfriend would contradict me.

    3. In your opinion, what was the most over hyped product you ever tried? - Too many! YSL touche eclat (not even a concealer), Maybelline great lash (lmao about the comment above! it must have addictive additives!), Nars Orgasm, Nars laguna, I could go on..


    4. You may have noticed that I have been doing a lot of nail polish posts lately. Are you all cool with this or would you like to see less? You won't hurt my feelings if you say you don't like them. - Nail posts are not really my thing, but I don't mind.

    5. What is your favorite blush brush? - I love my elf studio blush brush because I love how small it is, but I just got the MAC 168 mini today (it's still handmade, just small) and I have a feeling I will love it more.

  14. "read criticisms that I am too "wordy" that I take too long to get to the point"

    Wow! You have really freaked out over this. I thought it was ok to express an opinion. At least that is what you said before. Can't take it? If your going to be a writer, that people read and follow.. better get used to it. The fact that you addressed it in this way goes to show how much it really bothers you. If you can't take a comment.. take it in, think about if it was right for you.. ( it's fine, people like you the way you are) then you shouldn't be writing on a public forum. Really got to you huh? So silly.

  15. Dear Anonymous: Thank you for your insightful and positive feedback. Your use of hyperbole for "freaked out" is especially enchanting. I hope that your continued excellence in reading comprehension continues to thrive. Your ability to assume that I am speaking of you when I wrote this post is impressive. The mere fact that you were able to insert your narcissistic tenancies into a random beauty blog out of thousands on the internet is truly an amazing thing. I think what I admire most about you is your dedication to hiding behind the "Anonymous" moniker so that your true identity is hidden. It takes a special person to leave expertly crafted comments, such as yours, on the internet behind an anonymous tag and you do it superbly. Thank you again for adding to my hit/page count statistics. Your support is delightful!

  16. It does take a special kind of person to annoy you the way I have. Glad to be of service. I'll keep that count high for ya. Here is some more help. Please don't post your photo anywhere. You are too old and too ugly to have a beauty blog. Your no beauty. Keep the photos to yourself. Ugly old bitch.

  17. 1. BOTD - Bobbi Brown coral shimmer
    2. I'm shy when I first meet people, but after that I warm up quick. I'm also shy in large groups.
    3. Yves saint laurent faux cils - worked great for a week then fizzled out.
    4. I'm not really into nail polish so much, but I don't mind seeing/reading them. (and if I don't want to, I can always just hit delete. Why don't people practice this more instead of complaining??)
    5. I really like my Sonia Kashuk black handled one. It's perfect.

    PS. I really enjoy your witty comments and how vociferous you are. Don't change!!

  18. Anonymous (or should I say Nicole C.)
    A) You forgot to call me fat. Old, ulgy and FAT. That's the trifecta of troll insults.
    B) It's You're not Your.
    C) Should have trolled someone that might have actually cared or have been upset.

    Overall Troll grade C-

    Better luck on the next blog.
