Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 744

Have a red lip kinda Monday!

So…what is the Monday Poll?

Excellent question! It isn’t, contrary to its name, an actual poll, like with little clicky buttons. It’s just a list of more or less random questions I’ve been posting on this blog every Monday morning for the past quadrillion years (since 2007).

1. What lip colors do you wear the most?

Corals, rosy nudes and all the shades of pink! Order when I’m feeling it (like today).

2. Press on nails: yes or no?

In theory, yes, I don’t mind them, especially if you’re pressed (ha-ha!) for time and need polished nails in a pinch. In practice, though, no. I don’t like the feeling of something stuck to my nails and hands. It bothers me and I end up thinking about it and obsessing over it. Yes, I’m a weirdo that way.

3. Blue eyeshadow: yes or no?

Heck yeah!

4. Liquid, cream or stick concealer?

Liquid, please. It’s so much more forgiving under my eyes.

5. Red lipstick: love it or leave it?

Love it! Today I’ll take a matte red, in a warm reddish tone; I’ve got my eyes on Dior 999! If it’s stocked at my nearby Sephora that baby is mine. I need a lil’ pick me up.

6. Your thoughts on wearing workout wear 24/7?

It’s definitely a big trend where I live in Marin county. Lots of ladies rock workout gear all day, every day, and they look super cute doing it, too. I tried it for a month and it wasn’t really my thing. And felt sloppy! Give me shirts with some structure, please, and pants that don’t cling to my butt.

7. Last person you texted?

El Hub. We talked about Connor’s cold, and if she was well enough to go to school.

8. Your breakfast today?

A Dave’s Killer Protein Raisin bagel toasted with butter. Oh, and a Nespresso, of course. It was an Odacio kinda morning.

9. Something you’ve got planned for the week?

YARGH, I have to go and stop by a place in town that sells blinds and drapes in order to do some research. I was all set to get roller shades, but then it occurred to me that if Rosie hooked a claw into one it would all be over. I would like to find a window treatment solution that’s 1) not too visually overwhelming so we can take advantage of our views of the oak trees, and 2) pet friendly.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen
