Tuesday, January 27th, 2009

A friend of mine passed along this lil’ survey, and I thought it was fun to fill out to pass along the time of my Tuesday morning. I modified a few questions to make it a little more beauty related :)

What was the last new beauty product you purchased? Guerlain Exotic Paradise quad, glosses, and lipsticks.

When you’re feeling down, ________ lipstick/lipgloss makes you feel happier. RED LIPSTICK! Usually, even though I’m not a big wearer of it, red lipstick cheers me up and makes me feel a little sexier. My never-fail-lip color is Mari-sheeno, though!

What look were you wearing this past Saturday? The naked face. GASP!

What beauty product do you wish you could afford right now? Probably a series of microdermabrasion treatments or something to help reduce scarring on my face.

If you had to give up foundation or concealer, which would you give up? Concealer. It was an easy trade-off for me, since I rarely wear concealer ;)

Besides you, the biggest beauty addict you know is ___________. You all! I don’t think there’s anyone in my real life that is into makeup whatsoever. You can imagine how much I need this beauty spot as an outlet, right?

Could you go without any makeup for 30 days? I imagine I could, but I wouldn’t want to. It would be hard, and it might take a bit of a toll on my self-esteem given the terrible state of my skin (dermatologist appointment tomorrow AM for the win!).

Fill It Out!

    When I’m feeling down, any of my MAC Dazzleglass Lipglosses can make me feel a bit happier.

    What look were you wearing this past Saturday? Very natural look for day and for a girls’ night out: Custom-mixed mineral foundation, Sally Hansen’s Natural Beauty concealer in Medium, Bare Escentuals BareMinerals eye shadow in Nude Beach, Dr.Hauschka’s Volume mascara in Aubergine; on lips, a mixture of MAC Dazzleglass in Like Venus and YSL lipgloss in Transforming Champagne; and, on cheeks, MAC Mineralize Blush in Gentle.

    What beauty product do you wish you could afford right now? One of those Clairsonic brush sets, along with a separate purchase of some refills.

    If you had to give up foundation or concealer, which would you give up? Depends. If in a pinch, I would say foundation because it takes me some time to put it on considering that it’s mineral. Under any other circumstance, probably concealer. I could use foundation to conceal if I had to.

    Besides you, the biggest beauty addict you know is no one . Out of all the people I hang out with or associate with, I talk the most about makeup. I admit that I am a little obsessed with it.

    Could you go without any makeup for 30 days? I would like to but I don’t think I could considering that my skin is far from perfect.

    What was the last new beauty product you purchased? At a CCO (which I just found out was near me) a MAC 3d glass in Wondershine, a longwear pro lustre in Pink Air/White Top, and Naked Space lipglass (which I am now in love with).

    • I rock the no makeup look seldomly, and usually only if I’m running to Safeway or something, but if I’m going to school and the like, at least foundation!

  38. Frances

    What was the last new beauty product you purchased? Chanel Rouge Allure in Romantic, Beauty Talk OxyMask, a clay mask from Natio, and an eye mask (all at one go, so it counts as 1 :) )

    When you

    • Nice haul! How are you liking the Chanel lipstick?

      • Frances

        The Chanel lipstick is terrible! But only because it’s so sickeningly good, it’s driving me to bankruptcy. I’ve already bought Silhouette (nude pink-brown)and Romantic (pink), today I’m going back for Lover (red!), Excentric (berry wine) and maybe Exaltation (coral, woot woot!). I’m a college student, I CANNOT afford this addiction. And after I buy up the whole line, I promise I’ll stop :) The texture is just so good!

    -YSL lipsticks. (I am really enjoying wearing these.)

  47. Macaddict

    What was the last new beauty product you purchased?
    Too many!! Last friday night shopping spree (in 1 hour): 1 Chanel baby pink glossimer, Chanel new mascara in black, Chanel Vendetta nail polish, Chanel new limited lipsticks palette (6 colors shaped like a “C”), Dior new fragrance made of essential oils (called “Escale a Portofino), Dior blue mascara (I had run out of it), Nars cream blush/highlighter in Gold Member, Nars lipstick crayon in Red Square (bright orange), Make Up Forever blush/eye shadow in #75. Bad! Bad! Bad!
    Oops! I guess I forgot that I also went to Sephora yesterday and got 2 more UD electric blue mascaras and the Too Faced Smurfette (yeah! I know… I’m shameless…)limited edition e/s palette…

    When you’re feeling down, ( ) lipstick/lipgloss makes you feel happier?
    Bright reds and bright oranges, and bright pinks! I guess, anything bright

    What look were you wearing this past Saturday?
    Hummm. Let’s see if I can remember since every day I do a new look… Nars Exhibit A and Orgasm blushes, Mac Pleasureseeker l/s, Mac Pink Grapefruit l/g, all the e/s from the Mac Cool Heat collection + the Mac orange matte e/s for contrast, auto-de-blu liner, UD Big Fatty mascara in electric blue (?) (which is a gorgeous teal color).

    What beauty product do you wish you could afford right now?
    Too many to mention!! I have an ongoing list of all kinds of products I want. Pages and pages… I think that I really really want the Estee Lauder Orchidee facial serums and creams collection (they are sooo expensive though, I figure they must be awesome)

    If you had to give up foundation or concealer, which would you give up?
    For me, it’s a no-brainer since I almost never use concealer but I use foundation every day.

    Besides you, the biggest beauty addict you know is:
    No one!!! I’m the addicted one! I’m somewhat of an oddity among my co-workers, friends, & family members! I feel so alone and vulnerable without support with my addiction; that’s why I’m so glad to have found this blog! Now I know that I’m not the only one
    who goes through what I go through. Jokes aside, I never realized that I was “bizarre” until one of my co-workers pointed it out to me and said “Before I met you, I did not know that people like you ever existed!” Wow!

    Could you go without makeup for 30 days?
    Are you kidding???!!! Maybe 1-2 days to give my skin a break or, 1 week for when on vacation but anymore than that, I don’t know…
    To me, it’s a mode of self-expression and an artistic outlet. I’d feel deprived.
