Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 796

[ad_1]

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. Pick one — expensive purse or expensive shoes?

Although I feel like I’d get more use out of an expensive purse, I’d worry too much about losing it or it getting stolen, so shoes it is. Ideally, they’d be comfortable and make my heart sing!

Side note, I saw these sequin boots the other day and thought, “Oooooooh!” They’ve got a four-inch heel, though, so it’s not happening.

2. What’s more important to you in a foundation/base — a long wear time or a natural finish?

Natural finish, please. If it looks heavy at all, I can’t do it.

3. A perfume or a scent that you tried and didn’t like?

Really, there are so many. I like to try scents because you never know if one will work with your body chemistry, so I’m always hopeful, but ugh. There have been many times when I’ve spritzed stuff on and spent the day with a headache or feeling nauseous.

Lemme think. I know a ton of people who love Angel by Thierry Mugler, but it’s a little too sweet and heavy on me. Also back in the day, I tried the Liz Claiborne perfume in the triangle bottle, and it made my head pound for days.

4. Something related to skincare you’d like to try -– a product, procedure, anything!

There’s a new prescription retinoid I’m really interested in that I read about on allure.com that’s supposed to have hydrating ingredients in addition to the tretinoin. Looks promising!

5. Lavender or roses?

Roses. I’d love a few for a vase in my office.

Hello and how’s it going, my friend? I hope Monday has been treating you well.

When I walked Connor to school this morning, I looked up at the clear, blue sky and felt really good – like the week ahead has so much potential.

Small and gentle reminder to make your lists, drink your water and take care of your boundaries. Here’s a *hug* in case you need it, too.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
