Tuesday Beauty Poll

Oh, I’m so proud of you, 50% knew exactly what a BB cream is!  Not that I’m disappointed in the other 50%, because I was recently one of you.  A BB cream stands for “Blemish Balm” or “Blemish Base” or a couple of other similar alliterative terms.  You can go here to read more details, but many BB creams have soothing properties, along with light coverage.

Today, I’ve got a question that might be a toughie.  And, know that with this question, money (or lack thereof) is not an issue.  A total hypothetical, if you will.

58% of you voted thumbs down on purchasing an at-home gel nail kit, which can be pricey.  5% of you were excited about the idea, and 36% of you weren’t sure.  As someone who really likes nail color but dislikes the upkeep, I have a feeling that gel nails might be the wave of the future for me.  But, not yet.  Probably after my toddler gets a little older and I’m not washing my hands eighty billion times a day.

Now, with a pinky promise not to look it up on the sly, I’ve got a question for you:

71% of you are willing to overlook commercialism in beauty products, and you’ll buy them if you like them, regardless of the product tie-in.  7% say hooray for capitalism and are all for it, while 21% of you disagree.

Today I’m all about nails. Gel nail polish, that is.  You know, the kind that lasts up to three weeks without needing a touch-up and requires an ultra violet light in order to set properly?

I was very surprised, well shocked actually, to read that a full 61% of you do not use self tanner. To hear the beauty industry go on about self tanners, you would think everybody uses them. Well, what can I say, I don’t use them either. 29% carry on an illicit affair with self tanner, 6% have sworn never again, and only 2% describe your relationship with self tanner as wonderful. Wow. That says a lot about the state of self tanners, I think.

Today I want to know how you feel about the movie industry butting its head into the beauty world

What can I say?  My computer hates me.

Apologies for the absence, and regular posting commencing in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…

47% of you hated Amanda Seyfried’s choice of bright orange lip color, 28% loved it, and 23% felt her lips belonged at an event called Electric Daisy Lollapalooza instead of an award show.  I was actually sort of ambivalent about them.  Her makeup was very well done, and I almost kind of liked how much her lips popped.  But, orange!

Ah well, it’s just lip color, is it not?

Summer is already here and I want to know all about your relationship with self tanners…

Bad computer! Bad, bad, computer, breaking down and not allowing mama to post!

But I’m back, and crankier than ever, thanks to four days without a computer.

54% of you think that perfume that smells like a new book is ridiculous, and 45% you think it is wonderful, which isn’t really that big of a spread.  I wouldn’t buy it, but I think it’s an interesting concept.

Today, I want to know how you feel about Amanda Seyfried’s lipstick at the Tony Awards.

Ahhhh, is it Monday already?   I knew there was a reason I was feeling disappointed.

51% of you are mildly bothered by nonsensical beauty product names, and 34% of you could care less about the name.  9% are so bothered by silly names that they refuse to buy products with the aforementioned, and 4% are all about embracing a little linguistic creativity.  I would put myself in the majority camp, although I will buy it if I like the product enough.

Today, there’s a newly released perfume that I want to ask you about.

I hope your holiday weekend was better than mine, as I wept copious tears from being reprimanded not once, but twice, for misspelling the word “fluorescent” on last week’s poll.  Damn these embedded polls and the lack of spellchecking thereof!  And why yes, yes I was too busy dealing with sick husbands and children to look the word up, so you will have to comfort yourself with the fact that I don’t think I will ever misspell that word again, simply due to trauma.

I kid, of course.

Well, it seems that not ONE PERSON is completely into fluorescent makeup, which I find interesting, indeed.   48% of you deemed it a trend worthy of only your nails, if that.  17% denied it a place at all, and 33% of you were bitter that it managed to resurrect itself from the 80’s.

Apologies for the lack of polling, but when 50% of your family is down with a fever/flu thing, then not too much gets done.  Don’t worry, I neglected my housework, too.

The subject of bangs split 41% of you into the “love them” group and another 41% of you into the “love/hate” group.  17% didn’t like them at all.  I have to say I am in the love/hate category, because on some people, they just don’t look right.  Other people, however, can wear them beautifully.  My forehead is actually extremely low, and although I have had bangs in my past, I think I look better without them.  I’ve been bangless for over twenty years at this point, which sounded a lot dirtier than I intended.

Today I want to know how you feel about about a current makeup trend….

39% of you think Christina Ricci’s Met Gala outfit is the best of the cray-cray, which I have to say is surprising.  23% backed Karolina Kurkova, and 20% of you were rooting for fabulous dame Linda Fargo.  I personally voted for Florence Welch’s Alexander McQueen.

Meanwhile, Ivanka Trump’s big bangs, which made their debut at the very same event, are prompting some debate.
