Thursday Poll - by Joeybunny!


Ok, so I have just returned from the Promised Land (aka Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City). I was graced by the presence of Maynard Keenan tonight, and the gorgeous sounds of A Perfect Circle. Yes, I am enjoying soaking up your jealousy! Especially your jealousy, Elvira! IT TASTES DELICIOUS, DUDE.

I am convinced that there is no man on Earth with a more beautiful voice than Maynard. Seriously, just YouTube any A Perfect Circle (or Tool or Puscifer) songs. I highly recommend starting with APC’s “Orestes” - you will be haunted. Truly, truly haunted. I’m pretty sure that Maynard’s voice is the one you hear when you die and you get ushered through the Pearly Gates - and if it isn’t, then my ass better go to hell.

I love concerts. This is the fourth show I’ve been to since Memorial Day weekend (I saw Autodrone, Raphael Saadiq + Thievery Corporation, and Jaga Jazzist so far). I am such a music fanatic that any spare money I have goes towards concert tickets...and towards feeding cute, broke musicians (but that’s a different problem altogether). They’re just so much fun! I love getting dressed up and dancing and singing along and meeting people. Concerts are my anti-depressants, my big ass shot o’ happy to the ass. Does anyone else feel the same way?

Anyway, on to the poll!

1) Lip of the Day?: Today I started off with NARS Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in Club Mix, a lovely glossy deep plum. I ended the day with Le Metier de Beaute Uma Paro lipstick (a bright, hot purple-y shade) topped with a Le Metier de Beaute lip gloss whose name I forgot! I visited Dustin today at Bergdorf Goodman and he was kind enough to refresh my makeup.

2) What was your most memorable concert experience?: Besides tonight, my most memorable concert experience was seeing Slipknot at Madison Square Garden in February 2009. God, what a show! Hearing Corey’s voice quiver with pride while he discussed how excited he was to be playing at MSG was so moving. Furthermore, my personal life changed drastically because of that concert, but that’s a story for another time.

3) Do you plan out your makeup before you go to sleep?: I do sometimes. Mostly, I just wing it and grab what’s available. However, for tomorrow I decided to pull out my Chanel Mystic Eyes quad because of Sabrina’s latest post on her blog. My Mystic Eyes quad was a lovely present from my adoptive Momma Cindy, of Prime Beauty Blog fame. Now, to figure out a lipstick to go with it! I’m thinking Chanel Naive Rouge Allure.*edit from Elvira: Don't forget that I reviewed the Chanel Mystic Eyes Quad HERE. *

4) What are you currently lemming?: I’m currently lemming NARS Fall (the eyeshadows and the Velvet Matte lip pencil), UD Fall (the 15th Anniversary palette and a couple of the liquid liners), a bottle of Bulgari Black, and a bottle of Robert Piguet Bandit.

5) I, as usual, have not been sleeping much lately! Do you have any makeup/beauty tricks for looking more awake?: I splash really cold water on my face and use a brighter blush than normal, as I find that my skin is really pale and sallow when I don’t sleep.

  2. YES. I am Jealous. I have seen APC in concert before. But it has been over 5 years. Sadly I have not been to a show since before Darthypie was born. Lack of babysitters and funds has been the culprit.

    1. LOTD = Lunasol #25 in Beige Pink. It's close to Chanel RA in Naive but warmer and lighter. I'm wearing the Prelude Quad today. :-)

    2: Memorable Concert Experience = Believe it or not. It wasn't APC, Peter Murphy or Nine Inch Nails or The Sisters Of Mercy..they were all memorable. But seeing John Paul Jones from Led Zeppelin preform a 1 hour concert of strictly instrumental music including most if not all the songs he wrote for Zeppelin was a religious experience. It brought tears to my eyes. Tears of Joy. It was at a very intimate venue so I was very close and could reach out and touch him, if I wanted, and the crowd there was respectful and as into the show as I was. It was truly a show I will never forget.

    3. Do I plan my MU b4 I sleep = Sometimes. If I know for sure what I'm wearing I do. But most of the time I decide once I wake up. Decide on the shadow and the rest of the colors (Blush, Lips, Highlight, Eyeliner) are all dictated by the eyeshadow I choose.

    4. What am I lemming = Well after such a huge haul with Chanel and my Birthday haulage, I'm not really lemming anything. I still have makeup I haven't even worn yet. I'm lemming acne free skin. Is that too much to ask for?

    5. Tricks for looking more awake = When I have had little sleep not only do I look tired but I look older. I need a facial pick me up so I reach for my Peter Thomas Roth Oxygen Masque. Wear that for 10 to 15 min and once I rinse off my skin is glowing. Since the effects are only temporary I also use cold teaspoons on my eyes with a puff reducing eye gel, then for makeup I always reach for the bronzer and a frosty white highlighter for the inner corners of my eyes. It always makes me look more awake. I use a light eyeshadow and sparkly lip gloss just so my look isn't so severe which can be misinterpreted for tired/old.

  3. 1) Lip of the Day?: Today was MAC's Costa Chic lipstick, I'm on a coral kick at the moment and this is one of my favourites.

    2) What was your most memorable concert experience?
    Seeing CKY in a tiny venue was amazing, and Marilyn Manson was great. I was second row for both, makes for an amazing experience.

    3) Do you plan out your makeup before you go to sleep?
    Sometimes I do, I usually have an idea of one aspect I want to go for. Tomorrow I want metallic eyes and a pink matte lip, and I've been wearing liquid liner every day this week so that's a sure thing as well.

    4) What are you currently lemming?
    New shadows from Chanel, changed my mind about the JC blush though I don't think it will suit me. The shocking blue Nars shadow is making my heart beat faster atm too, and some of the Mexican inspired gear from Australian Kit Cosmetics 'Viva La Colour' range. Corals galore, j'adore!

    5) I, as usual, have not been sleeping much lately! Do you have any makeup/beauty tricks for looking more awake?
    A luminous foundation for base, and a heap of blush. Mascara as well, so you don't attract attention towards your tired eyes! Some brightening eye shadows can also help=)

  4. 1) Lip of the Day?: MAC Ladybug - my fave sheer red but I can't wear this without P&P Lip to hold it on.

    2) What was your most memorable concert experience?: gah, too many to name! Bjork at Radio City (I was in the 14th row and she made me cry), and I also loved the energy of the the Fugazi show at the Roxy in NY. Then there was PJ Harvey at Roseland...Skinny Puppy at Irving Plaza was pretty sweet...lol...My Life With The Thrill Kill Cult at Coney Island High was fun.

    3) Do you plan out your makeup before you go to sleep?: No but I pull out some things here and there that I want to use during the week.

    4) What are you currently lemming?: Chanel cream shadows, UD 15th Anniv. palette.

    5) I, as usual, have not been sleeping much lately! Do you have any makeup/beauty tricks for looking more awake?: Sleeping and not drinking wine the night before.

  5. 1. Stila Mango Lip Stain--perfect for summer.

    2. You're gonna laugh! KISS, in their heyday in the 70's. I was in HS and my BF and I piled in his Slug Bug. I did our makeup--I had stars and glitter winged around my eyes all the way to my temples. I did a huge glitter star on his nose and who knows what else. I wore a maxi halter dress and applied homemade tatoos to my shoulders. We BOTH wore platform shoes. We. Were. Awesome!

    3. Hell no, I'm not that organized!

    4. I've bought so much lately no real lemmings except I still want LMdB Penelope.

    5. Tarte EmphasisEyes Inner Rim Brightener

  6. 1) Lip of the Day?: Right now I am wearing a HiP Jelly Balm in Delectable however my LotD will be Chanel Rouge Allure Joyeuse, but I am waiting until after lunch to put it on ;P

    2) What was your most memorable concert experience?: I really enjoyed seeing Mika's shows, but the one thing that stood out for me is when I went to see GLAY (a Japanese group) with my friends and caught the guitarists pick (which didn't even look like it was coming my way) and gave it to my friend who has been a huge fan of his for years. It felt really satisfying :)

    3) Do you plan out your makeup before you go to sleep?: Only when there is a particular item I want to use, usually because it's new :P

    4) What are you currently lemming?: Dior.com exclusive Dior Addicts.

    5) I, as usual, have not been sleeping much lately! Do you have any makeup/beauty tricks for looking more awake?: Nah, I probably always look like I never get any sleep lol.

  7. 1) Lip of the Day?: MAC Dare to Wear Lipglass in Dare to Dare

    2) What was your most memorable concert experience?: A tie between seeing APC in Vegas in Nov. 2010 and seeing Tool at All Points West in 2009. Joey, I was also at the APC show at Hammerstein on Wednesday! I die anytime I'm in the same room as Maynard. I always wonder if any of his air molecules are going up my nose. Sick, maybe, but I don't care.

    3) Do you plan out your makeup before you go to sleep?: Yes, every day lol. It helps me feel more organized in the morning, plus I am able to come up with more creative combinations if I plan ahead

    4) What are you currently lemming?: Pretty much all of Chanel Fall and the new Guerlain quads coming out

    5) I, as usual, have not been sleeping much lately! Do you have any makeup/beauty tricks for looking more awake?: Eye drops!
