Monday Beauty Poll

Monday, October 1st, 2012
By Glinda

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.

Last week’s poll found that the majority of you, 47%, disliked the term “witchy poo” when it came to describing long, gray hair. I would have to agree.  29% felt that it wasn’t a good look for someone over 40, while 22% disagreed.

Today I’ve got some Emmy beauty fails.

Tuesday Beauty Poll

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.

Beauty Shout-Out: Emma Stone

Tuesday, June 5th, 2012

I love everything about this look at the MTV Movie Awards.

A natural blonde,  I have often thought that Emma looks better as a redhead.

This proves me wrong.

J’adore the lip color, the bold eyeliner, the soft hair, and the lovely porcelain skin.

The only tiny quibble I have is with her visible roots, but seeing as how it is an “in” thing and everything else is so stunning, I will let it go.

Everyone’s favorite trainwreck Lindsay Lohan eked out a win over Kate Upton and Kate Hudson by only one and two percentage points, respectively.  Which really isn’t much to brag about.  I think my least favorite thing about her look was her lips.  Enough with the fillers, ladies!

Now, onto even more celebrity judging…  Now I know the Met Gala is a chance for many to let go of more traditional fashion choices and be a bit more fanciful.  But that doesn’t mean we get to give up our gavels, does it?

Well, most of you (44%) found yourselves in a somewhat hesitant approval of Kelly Osborne’s purple hair and lips, with 18% in enthusiastic approval.  I’m in with you guys, for some reason it didn’t look hideous.  The rest of you disagreed, and one kind soul clicked on my joke of wanting some grape juice.  Thank you, person who took pity on me!

Today I’ve got some more celebrity looks for you to judge…

Monday Beauty Poll: Oscars Red Carpet

50% of you oppose animal testing, but admit you’re a bit hazy on the details of who actually performs it.  22% say it isn’t on their radar, 14% refuse to buy from companies that do test, and 12% are OK with it.  I’m going with the majority vote on this one.

And now, dears, it is the last fashion-oriented poll we will have for a while, since awards season is over.  I’ve got lots for you to choose from for best-dressed of the night.

I’m less of a person than I was a week ago (har, that’s surgical humor right there) but I’m back and hopefully better than ever.  Not having cancer=very good thing!  Now I can focus on the important things in life, like the reintroduction of cult fave Clinique’s Black Honey Almost Lipstick.

Viola Davis beat Zoe Saldana in the fab-off by an embarassingly large margin.  You go, Viola!

And you know, I had a very hard time finding someone that looked truly awesome from the Grammys last night, but here are my top two picks.


Tuesday Beauty Poll: SAG Awards Fab-Off

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

What happened to Monday?  Did it really already go by without me noticing?

Tsk. Tsk.

It seems that skin care was the big winner in the money-spending sweepstakes, with 25% of the vote.  Next came mascara with 16%, and hair care at 13%.  Foundation, lipstick, and beauty tools all received 11%.  I’m going to say that I am most willing to splurge on a really expensive lipstick.  If you are new to this blog, then hello, you should know that I adore lipstick.

Since the Golden Globes fierce-off was so popular, how’s about one from the SAG Awards?  My hat is off to both of these ladies, they looked fantastic!  So hard to choose!


Celebrity Red Carpet Smackdown

Apologies, my lovelies, for the sporadic posting as of late.  Things in my life have taken a rather weird turn in a couple of ways, and I’m trying to deal with them as best I can.  Let’s just say I will be going under the knife in a few weeks to biopsy a possibly cancerous growth.  And that’s just ONE of the things that is going on, and not even the biggest one.

Yeah.  The fun never ends.

So, the Golden Globes happened the other night, and I didn’t watch.  But of course I saw the pictures the next day and I found these two ladies to be the most striking of the night.  But which one wins?
