Monday Beauty Poll

My last poll asked how you felt about Rita Hayworth’s 40’s hair, and it was split pretty evenly between lurve and lukewarm.  Me, I’m a big lurve on that one.

Hey, have you heard that eye crystals are trying to be a thing? The above was taken at Dior’s Spring 2013 runway show.

Apologies, my dears, for the long blog silence. I’m back, and ready to go.

My last poll asked if you would be willing to try Beauty Candy, a supplemented “treat,” and 50% of you said no dice. 46% said they might if someone handed them a box for free, and only 4% jumped on the bandwagon.

Today I’m asking about a hairstyle from the 40’s that is has been making a comeback for a while, and is starting to gain some traction.

It was almost a three-way tie! 33% of you said that a french manicure is a timeless classic, while the exact same amount said it was never all that to begin with.  32% said it was passe.  So, if you add up the two “negative” categories, I’m afraid it isn’t looking too good for the french manicure.

Would you be willing to try the candy supplement beloved of Brazilian supermodels?  Beauty candy, that is? These “candies” contain vitamins and collagen, for starters.

86% of you disapprove of a manicure that costs upwards (much upwards) of $100,000.  I would have to agree that it seems a bit much.

Speaking of nails, what say you about the french manicure?

Giuliana Rancic incurred the wrath of 80% of you due to her aggressive use of bronzer.  I had no idea it would be that big of a slam dunk, but there it is.  She has a new baby, so maybe she is trying to overcompensate for some tiredness, but her makeup artist needs a hundred lashes with a wet noodle.

It seems I was unaware of Kelly Osbourne’s manicure at the Emmys, but boy do I know about it now.  It seems that she was given a manicure worth $250,000.  Yes, the zeroes are correct.  Something about black diamonds or some such.

81% of you choose to keep your lady garden in its natural color state.  18% of you are at least not rejecting the idea outright.  To me, if it is safe and not too much of a hassle, I don’t see it as anything but some harmless fun.

Some beauty/style website I happened upon featured the above hair style as a “no no” for women over 40.  They called this hairstyle “witchy poo.”

Well, most of you think that Queen Latifah looks juuuust fiiiine for a hot August night.  57% of you, in fact.  12% of you thought she could have done something more, and the rest just respected the thought of not having to worry about makeup melt.   Personally I thought she looked fresh and lovely, as always.

Today I want to know how you feel about the dip-dye trend for hair.

65% of you felt that Rachel Bilson’s attempt at a different hairstyle was a big flop.  25% were confused as to exactly what kind of hairstyle it was, and the rest of you were split at 4% each for fab and confusing.  Alert to celebrities, if the public does not know what the heck you have done with your hair, you should either hire a stylist or fire your stylist.

Today I came across the above picture of the lovely Queen Latifah on a “worst” celebrity list for her lack of eye makeup/sufficient lip color at a birthday party.   It was a BIG birthday party, but still just technically a birthday party in the heat of August.

Last week’s question about freckles found that 32% of you have and are (at the minimum) OK with your freckles, while 4% of you have them and are not.  52% do not have freckles are are fine with that situation, and 10% don’t have them but wish they did.  I do not have any freckles, at least not any that are clustered.  I think that I have various freckles scattered around due to sun exposure, but not in a concentrated area.

Today, I’m all about voting on a celebrity hairdo! Or hairdon’t, however you see fit.

51% of you would choose clothes, if given the choice between clothes, shoes, and makeup.  30% chose shoes, and the remainder fell into the makeup category.  Surprisingly, I was among those who chose shoes.  If I was a betting woman, I would have bet on makeup, but recently I’ve been on a mini shoe-buying binge. 

Clothes aren’t holding much for me lately, as my hormone therapy for my missing thyroid isn’t going all that well and an unpredictably ballooning waistline isn’t making me all that enthusiastic about shopping for clothes.  Now, if I knew what weight I was going to be from month to month, I’d be fine, but I never know exactly where I’m going to be due to the meds.

Speaking of bodies and the changing of, I’ve got a self-esteem question for you today.
