Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 556

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 five more or less random questions I’ve been posting on this blog every Monday morning for the past quadrillion years (since 2007). I love reading your answers, and it helps me get my week off to a good start. ?

1. Matte or cream lipstick?

Cream — because my lips are at the *pinnacle* of their winter dryness right now.

2. You have $100 to spend on beauty products. Would you go to CVS, Ulta, Target or Sephora?

Sephora, and I’d get things I regularly use and adore, like two bottles of Kate Somerville Anti-Bac Clearing Lotion, which would be $84 before tax, so I’d have enough left over to grab a vanilla shake at In-n-Out afterwards, ha ha! Or, I’d get one bottle of Anti Bac ($42), a Clinique Pretty Easy Pen ($22), and two packages of Shiseido Facial Cotton ($10 each), for a grand total of $84.

Or maybe…just maybe…I’d throw caution to the wind and try some new things, like the Jose Maran Vibrancy Argan Oil Foundation ($45) and Vibrancy Concealer ($28) I’ve been dying to try.

3. Cowlicks?

SO MANY.

4. Weirdest or most oddly shaped thing you wrapped for the holidays this year?

Hmm… Well, yesterday I wrapped a big ol’ 48-ounce thermos, and I must say…I didn’t expect it to be quite as oddly shaped as it was. In fact, I actually ended up cheesing out and used a gift bag and tissue paper for it.

OH! Thank goodness for those Marshalls gift bags, man!

5. New or old?

New! I’m so ready for new.

It’s a hot pink unicorn kind of Christmas

Hi, friend! Happy Christmas Eve 🎄🤶 day! Ya know…I actually feel the holiday buzz in the air, which is so great because, honestly, I usually just feel waves of stress on the 24th. I’m normally packing for two road trips to see family (we’re only driving to one place this year!), wrapping last-minute gifts (I finished yesterday!) and making food (also done yesterday, WOO HOO!). This year, it’s all done, and I actually feel excited. Almost relaxed. 😊

One of the highlights for me this year has been wrapping gifts with this silly unicorn wrapping paper (at the top) I found at Michaels, which I initially got for Connor’s presents but have been using for everyone…even the dudes, ha ha!

How are things going over there? Are you traveling this year or staying local?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen
