Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 545

When Michales totally gets you.

So…what is the Monday Poll?

Good question! It isn’t, contrary to its name, an actual poll. It’s just a list of five more or less random questions I’ve been posting on this blog every Monday morning for the past gazillion years (more than 10!). I love reading your answers, and it helps me get my week off to a great start. 👍

1. What mascara do you find yourself buying over and over again?

Tarte Light Camera Lashes! It isn’t flashy, and it sure isn’t new, but it’s my Old Faithful. I’ve been using it off and on for a decade.

In the plus column, it isn’t terribly expensive ($23), and I’ve always liked how it adds mad, crazy volume evenly from the base to the tips of my lashes. Also a fan of how it separates like a fine-toothed comb; holds a curl well; doesn’t flake, smudge or smear; and it’s easy to remove!

It’s the total package IMO.

2. If you could go on an all-expenses-paid shopping spree to any store, what store would it be?

Pottery Barn, dawg. I “need” sturdy bedroom furniture that isn’t held together with good intentions and 300 tiny screws, and doesn’t violently wiggle when you open a drawer. 😬

3. Do you like your coffee strong or weak?

Weak…ish. But not too weak though. I mean, I don’t want it to taste like coffee water, and it needs to have a wee bit o’ kick.

4. A nail polish line you love?

I’m super obsessed with Sally Hansen Color Therapy at the moment!

5. Are you a stickler for authentic details in Halloween costumes?

Naw, not really. I’m definitely NOT the person who hunts down an exact replica of an 1860’s steampunk birch wood button to get every detail right, although props to you if you’re that person. I applaud your commitment! Personally, though, I aim for one or two major thematic elements to convey the overall idea, and then I fudge the rest. Like one year I dressed up as Veruca Salt from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I made a huge paper mache “egg” using a balloon and sprayed it gold. Then I donned a velvet holiday dress that I found in the children’s section at Goodwill and carried the egg around with me all day and night. 🙂 I can’t begin to guess how many strangers on Bart that year said, “Hey, Veruca!” or sang snippets of I Want It Now as I walked by, ha ha ha!

If you need me…

You’ll find me at Michaels, which is where I found the sign up there at the top (they have AMAZING sales). That place is a black hole! Every time I go, I risk disappearing forever. I find a lot of the same types of things I’d otherwise expect at Pier 1. When I was there last Saturday, one of the managers walking around asked if she could help me find anything, and I said, “No, but there’s a good chance that by the end of the day I won’t just be shopping here. I’ll be working here,” and she said, “Well, I AM hiring.”

Raise your paw if you feel me on this!

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen
