Thursday Poll



I have a phobia of insects. Also known as Acarophobia or Entomophobia or Insectophobia, the phobia itself can be pretty annoying because I'm not afraid of ALL bugs. Ants don't bother me unless they are really large. Lady bugs are OK as long as they don't come in hoards. Bumble bees are no problem because they are usually busy getting nectar from flowers and pay me no mind, but most other bugs scare the crap out of me. I also hate Spiders. Spiders really scare me. really teeny tiny ones are OK, because I can usually blow them away, but anything over the size of a chocolate chip will send me shrieking from the room. Oh gross, now I have associated chocolate chips with spiders. Now when I see a chocolate chip I'll think of spiders. Bleh! Mr. Sith is OK with all bugs except Spiders. He hates them too. So you can imagine that in our house if a spider gets in, it's kind of a production. We try really hard not to show our fear in front of Darthypie because we don't want to pass along the phobia to him, but I worry that he might get it anyway. Thank goodness we have bottles of spider spray everywhere in our home. Don't get me wrong. I understand that spiders do an excellent service to our garden. They eat the bad bugs that can ruin plants and all that. I leave them alone if they are outside, but if they take one step in my home, that's it. They are done! What's worse, our 2 cats, Herbie and Cujo, are not bug cats. They couldn't care less about bugs. (Stupid Cats). I'm sure I'll get letters from PETA now. I don't care. All I'm saying is that as the weather turns colder most bugs will go into hibernation and I won't have to see them for several months. So since today is the first day of Fall I celebrate a bug free home...until Spring.
On To The Poll!

1. Blush Of The Day? - Chanel Jouse Contraste in Rose Dust. One of the few cool toned blushes in the JC collection. I have the Euro version and it seems to be lighter than the US version and less chalky. I perfect blue based pinky-mauve.

2. Do you have any phobias? Don't know the name? Look it up on The Phobia List website. You can look up the indexed list to search by the thing you have a phobia of if you don't know the name of the phobia. - Aside from insects I have a Chiroptophobia. This is a fear of bats. I have no idea why Halloween is still my favorite time of year. Between the spiders and bats you would think I would be hiding in the corner with a can of spider spray and a shotgun.

3. Finish this sentence. "If I had more money I would buy more __________." (Must be a beauty product) - If I had more money would buy more Chantecaille cosmetics and skincare or high end niche perfumes. Yeah. I change my answer to perfume.

4. Do you have Coulrophobia? (Fear of clowns) - No. I don't think I do, but I really HATE clowns. I mean really hate them. I also hate the circus, not just for the clowns but also for the animal acts. Bleh! It's a little known fact. All clowns carry knives.

5. What beauty product were you so excited to have, but now you are just not that into anymore? - I guess my Chanel Rouge Coco lipsticks. I find them incredibly drying after a while. I don't think I'll be purchasing more. (Please bookmark this page so you can remind me what a hypocrite I am the next time you see me review a new Rouge Coco lipstick!)

  1. I too have a fear of spiders. And clowns. And needles. And clusters of holes or cracked ground. I shouldn't be allowed out of the house :(

  2. oh my gosh, woman, you are SO killer funny! i am hurting from trying not to laugh in the office.
    i love bugs but my husband hates them in the house so i am Le Remover. i try to take them outside instead of smooshing them.

    1- dope of the day, that's me. I forgot to put any on because I was leaving early. :( Gonna scrounge in my purse to see if i can fake it with a lippie.

    2- acrophobia (fear of heights) and whatever fear of snakes goes by. the snake one is purely pathological (i'm a bio major and i know which ones are a real threat) but i can't stand them. they way they move, and their heads...i just freeze in fear. even in zoos or watching TV.

    3- Guerlain Les Ors (in my dreams!!!!) so exquisitely beautiful and so luxurious. my first Guerlain lemming! and least likely to work out. also more perfumes. mmmmmmm.

    4- nope, but like you i hate them. i blame Ronald McDonald.

    5- oooh i'll take your Rouge Cocos. ;) for me, I guess Maybelline Age Eraser. I got it because it sounded so different in formula and i liked the idea of a built-in buffer, but it's a verrry emollient formula (not good on oily skin) and the buffer smells funny after a few uses. :S maybe that's what i get for not being the consumer they were targeting?

  3. 1. Blush Of The Day? - I sound like a broken record but I layered Illamasqua Lover and Unrequited. I just love this combo.

    2. Do you have any phobias? A million. I hate spiders and reptiles. I'm afraid of heights and of mushrooms (yes, mushrooms) and I am totally claustrophobic.

    3. Finish this sentence. "If I had more money I would buy more __________." Serge Lutens perfumes and high end skincare (think Guerlain Orchidee Imperiale serum for example)

    4. Do you have Coulrophobia? (Fear of clowns) - Now, but I admit nothing's scarier than a clown.

    5. What beauty product were you so excited to have, but now you are just not that into anymore? - My Chanel Pro-Lumiere. It is lovely but I have found products I like more since then, and I don't reach for it very often anymore.

  4. 1. Blush Of The Day? - nothing yet, need to shower first. as of recent ive been using GAs blushing fabric.

    2. Do you have any phobias? rats, large insects like cockroaches.

    3. Finish this sentence. "If I had more money I would buy more __________ skincare, shu uemura brushes, and Le Metier de Beaute.

    4. Do you have Coulrophobia? (Fear of clowns) - i don't want to say outright fear, but they are creepy.

    5. What beauty product were you so excited to have, but now you are just not that into anymore? - most of my MAC stuff. just not into MAC all that much anymore, especially seeing how amazing h/e products are.

  5. 1. Illamasqua Beg

    4. No. Although I question if anybody actually likes clowns.

  6. 1. Blush Of The Day? - Again, Nars Douceur *yawn*

    2. Do you have any phobias? Heights (you will never catch me in a hot air balloon) and bugs. Bugs are gross and scary.

    3. Finish this sentence. "If I had more money I would buy more __________." Shoes. I need shoes. And boots.

    4. Do you have Coulrophobia? (Fear of clowns) - No but I can see why other ppl hate them...they're creepy as hell.

    5. What beauty product were you so excited to have, but now you are just not that into anymore? - I'm still pretty excited about my makeup, all of it...so nothing?

  7. Eeewwww thanks... I WAS planning on making chocolate chip cookies this afternoon! It's wrecked!!! LOL

    I'll just have to forget that you said that, and do them tomorrow...

    1. Blush Of The Day? Ginger from Orglamix. Beautiful, makes me "rosy" and "glowy". I like it.

    2. Do you have any phobias?
    See question #4. And anything with more than 4 legs. All sorts of bugs, and I have this insane fear of swimming in water where I can't see the bottom- there's a spot in my river where I can't because it's a) really deep and b) dark and shaded... And I always think I'm going to get dragged down by Nessie or some sort of water-born alien. Those scare me more than the idea that I might choke to death on water. Figure THAT one out!!

    3. Finish this sentence. "If I had more money I would buy more __________."
    Red shoes. Red Lipstick. Pencil Skirts. Mineral Makeup.

    4. Do you have Coulrophobia? (Fear of clowns
    TERRIBLY! My uncle decided it would be fun to pop in "Stephen King's 'The IT'" when I was 7 because I said I wanted to watch a scary movie. I was thinking more along the lines of "The Secret of NIMH". I totally freak and pop a gasket, and I'll pass out if a clown gets too close to me.

    5. What beauty product were you so excited to have, but now you are just not that into anymore?
    I can't answer this yet... I've ditched most of my commercial makeup in favor of mineral, but I've kept some items to make certain looks possible.

  8. 1) Chanel In Love JC.

    2)I am deathly afraid of snakes, otherwise known at Ophidiophobia! Seeing one will send me into hysterics.

    3)If I had more money I would buy more PERFUME. I cannot get enough perfume, and I would buy it uncontrollably if I could.

    4) YES. I hate clowns and they freak me out. I was fine with them until the movie "IT" and ever since, I don't like clowns.

    5)I was really excited about getting the TF natural palette, but I thought it sucked. Chalky, sheer, no staying power, waste of money.

  9. E-OMG, I can totaly relate. When I was 8 there was a roach trapped in my room, the long 4inch slender kind, that look like a winged bat when flying. Well it was flying around my room and I screamed. My mother came running naturally, to see what was wrong. A roach I screamed, then it flew and landed on my head, I shrieked, but instead of mother helping me she just stood there and laughed me to scorn. I think she morphed me 4 life, so I have a little phobia of my own to roaches of any breed. And also love autumn, cold temps, non-roach hibernating weather. Cheers!

  10. you crack me up. O and now i also associate spiders with chocolate chips..which i will sincerely thank you for if it succeeds in keeping me from eating them lol (chocolate chips i mean, not spiders, ew)

    1. Blush of the Day? Becca cream blush in petal. So pretty but much brighter than i was expecting. o well.

    2. Do you have any phobias? Yep, arachnophobia and selachophobia which is fear of sharks. The second one is ironic because I live by the beach. I just try to forget that sharks live in the ocean :) and so sad for the hubby also being afraid of spiders! my bf takes them outside for me because he doesnt like to kill things(which is sweet and all but i would prefer the world to have 1 less spider in it :P)
    3. If I had more money I would buy more... not really more but i would buy some peels or something. basically anything that would get rid of my acne. I think I am going to give up dairy for a while as a trial :(
    4. Do you have coulrophobia? nope. If i did I would really hate my grandmas house. She loves clowns and has all kinds of clown decorations. Alot of them are creepy but not scary.
    5. What beauty product were you so excited to have, but now you are just not that into anymore? fyrinnae pigments. don't get me wrong, they are really good quality for the price, but I despise loose powder things. I am too much of a klutz to deal with them.

  11. 1. Blush of the day - my natural self lol

    2. I have a bit of a bug phobia, hate those yellow jackets and cockroaches/water bugs. oh man do I HATE those! I could win an Olympic sprint if there was one at the start!

    3. I'd buy more Chanel cosmetics! :)

    4 Not afraid of clowns but I do dislike them. I think it's Stephen Kind's fault.

    5. hmm I'm not sure, I get re-excited when I find stuff I have stashed but haven't used in a while. lol

  12. You could write about anything and I would read it with pleasure while holding my sides laughing.


    1. Blush Of The Day? - MAC beauty powder in oh so fair. I went to the VV preview and picked this up as it suited me best.

    2. Do you have any phobias? Don't know the name? Look it up on The Phobia List website. I think I have PTSD about someone breaking into my house since it happeed when I was little. And ghosts. And aliens. And creepy men. I think that's it.

    3. Finish this sentence. "If I had more money I would buy more __________." (Must be a beauty product) - If I had more money would buy more hype products, then I would have the stuff that everyone wanted and be all, "haha I have limited edition hard to find stuff I don't even like or want!"

    4. Do you have Coulrophobia? (Fear of clowns) - Not unless they are coming in my personal space. That could be creepy. I think I would be more afraid if it was in a clown mask rather than paint. OMG batman, dark knight flashback. Poor Heath Ledger.

    5. What beauty product were you so excited to have, but now you are just not that into anymore? - everything I own I think! Estee Lauder Blue Dahlia palette. I had to have it, I haven't used it once. MAC show orchid lipstick. I had to have that bright pink, but it was so unwearable! I use mostly neutral colors, but for some reason I always end up buying bright MAC lipsticks.

  13. 1. BOTD: Laura Mercier Lotus pink
    2. No phobias here. I lived w/a sister who had a pet tarantula, rat and iguana. Any phobias I may have had are gone now.
    3. Chanel extrait de gloss.
    4. No, but like you, I really hate clowns.
    5. Chantecaille les sorbets lip gloss palette. It's sitting in my desk drawer at work. =(

    I think you are HILARIOUS!!! I'm completely enamored with your sense of humor!

  14. 1. Blush Of The Day?

    I'm just at home today, but yesterday it was the Physician's Formula Baked Wet/Dry blush in Baked Berry :) so pretty and glowy

    2. Do you have any phobias? Don't know the name? Look it up on The Phobia List website. You can look up the indexed list to search by the thing you have a phobia of if you don't know the name of the phobia.

    Arachnophobia, and the insect one you have :P

    3. Finish this sentence. "If I had more money I would buy more __________." (Must be a beauty product) -

    MAC lipsticks and indie mineral amkeup in general :D

    4. Do you have Coulrophobia? (Fear of clowns) -

    Nope, I love evil clowns >;D

    5. What beauty product were you so excited to have, but now you are just not that into anymore? -

    Probably my 88 Ultra Shimmer palette. The shimmer is just so chunky that I reach for other products. :(

  15. 1. Blush of the day is Nars Orgasm. For me, it's idiot-proof.

    2. My phobias would have you all saying "WTF" or "TMI", so enough said.

    3. If I had more money I would buy a.)a bottle of Shalimar just to look at the cool bottle in my powder room.
    b.)whatever limited edition collectible makeup (the stuff with the cool containers) is out at the moment. (Dior is one of my faves)
    c.)a nice Chanel nail polish or a good Estee Lauder perfume (I love the solid compacts that come out at Christmas). A Creed scent would also be cool.

    4. I can take or leave clowns. Seeing women with way too much makeup that's badly applied is far scarier. One woman at my workplace had four intensely bright MAC eye shadows on her lids all at once. The turquoise, gold, yellow and green she was wearing would have looked far better if she had blended them at all. Yikes...

    5. Last year, I was psyched about Kat Von D's concealer product that was guaranteed to conceal a tattoo. I have a small brown streak/age spot/whatever on my right cheek. I was tired of people trying to wipe it off my face. That stuff concealed NOTHING.

  16. 1. No blush today, I'm testing out a bunch of foundations, so since I keep washing my face no blush yet.

    2. I have been diagnosed with emetophobia (look it up!). That makes it super fun to work in the medical field. :P

    3. If I had more money, I would buy more eyeshadow. I'm an eyeshadow hoor.

    4. I do not have Coulrophobia, clowns sort of creep me out but not an outright phobia.

    5. I'm super new to makeup, so none of it has lost it's excitement for me yet..... lol.

  17. Well, I like it this lipstick really its looking very hot and sexy. I think all women are like it.
