Midsummer Night's Dreamlist and Survey Central (NOW OPEN!)

Recommended Posts

IT'S TIME!  This is the thread for survey posting!  A few admin notes:

  • Filling this out is not absolutely mandatory, but it will help your Fairy Godmother considerably in figuring out what to get.
  • Filling out THE WHOLE THING is not mandatory.  Aside from the first three mandatory questions (allergies, dietary restrictions, skin sensitivities), feel free to pick and choose what to answer or skip entirely!  We're just trying to get to know *you* better.  I know if my Goddaughter has a fondness for Wonder Woman, there is likely to be a shiny pin in her future!
  • Also not mandatory:  Sending out extras.  They're not to be expected, but I know many of us want to send them out!
  • If you would like your survey answers and/or dreamlist linked in the directory in this post (in the spoiler box right before the survey questions), please tag me in your response.  I'll update every evening!
  • If you missed tagging me in your original post and would still like to be added, please PM me!
  • PLEASE LIMIT YOURSELF TO ONE POST IN THIS THREAD!  Your post will lock for editing after twenty-four hours.  Rather than adding a second (third, fourth, twentieth...) post, please just create a dreamlist in the Buy/Sell/Trade section.  PM me with that link, and I will add it to your survey post. 
  • Any other questions?  Just post in the Discussion thread or PM @, @, or me.

Because I've been asked, a few tutorial bits:  
To create a spoiler box, just type this without the spaces (this works whether you're on mobile or desktop):
[ s p o i l e r ] Then type whatever.  Then type [ / s p o i l e r ]

Y'know, I am so used to just typing it out since I'm usually on my phone that I didn't notice there's no longer a spoiler button.

And creating a Buy Sell Trade post.  First, go here:
http://www.makeuptalk.com/f/forum/103-makeup-nails/

Click on Start New Topic.  Then fill out your dreamlist title, then fill out the body of the post, then click Post New Topic, et voila!  You have a new url to add to your survey and/or signature!

I'm going to put the Directory under a spoiler cut because this post is long enough as it is.

 

 

Thanks!  Let's pretend there's a :grouphug: smiley here.  And now, the survey!

 

Absolute must-answers (note:  If you do not wish to post answers to these three questions in public, please send a PM to @.  These answers will only be shared with your Fairy Godparent):

Survey! I put this behind a spoiler because, it's long


Absolute must-answers:


  • Allergies: None that I know of!
  • Dietary restrictions: I'm generally a vegetarian.  I occasionally make exceptions to this rule, but only for locally-sourced, hormone (beef) & steroid free (chicken) animals (cage free, grass fed). If you really care to know more, I'm happy to expand
  • Skin allergies/sensitivities: I avoid sulfates and parabens in hair products.  My scalp is not a fan.

Would you like to get a heads-up from a Fairy that your package is on its way, or would you prefer its delivery to be a complete surprise?  Either is fine!  I'll be traveling sometime in June (trying to remember the dates for this) so it might be helpful to alert my roommates if I'll be not at my apartment.


 


Not mandatory but cannot be recommended highly enough:  Do you have an on-forum swap/Midsummer Dream list?  If it's anywhere other than this post, URL here, please!  Holler.  I'll work on this. I worked on this!  I didn't add much :/  But this is here too!  http://www.makeuptalk.com/f/topic/131910-midsummer-nights-dreamlist-survey/


 


Basic background information:


Style descriptions! Brief is better.


  • Makeup: Olivey complexion- redness in the cheeks.  Combination skin (T-zone issues) no acne.  Light on face, big on eyes and lips.
  • Hair: My hair is thick and wavy- and really dark, so I stick to beach curls and blowouts- actually spending time on my hair is not a priority for me.
  • Nails: Short and stubby! I play the guitar and other stringed instruments of the sort, so I keep my nails short.  I typically go for pretty corals and blacks
  • Skincare (face/neck) I need to be better at this.  I wash my face.. when I shower.. and occasionally I do masks.. Low maintenance.
  • Bodycare (every where else) Love it. All of it. I love things that are hyper moisturizing and don't smell like flowers.
  • Home: Rustic? Main colors in my room are baby blue and red, with a bit of a mustardy yellow, cream, and dark forest green thrown in. Quite different than my personal style, I essentially only wear black.  And gold.  Black and  gold.

More advanced questions:


  • Solve for X: I am wearing too much black eyeliner, and I DO NOT CARE!
  • Cruelty-free or vegan. Important, must-have, nice, don't care? Important, but not a must-have.
  • You just won a $50 gift card to your favorite beauty store. Which store is it, and what will you buy? Lush. Probably 8 gazillion massage bars.  And Dark Angels face wash.
  • Please list any subscription boxes you receive, along with anything you may covet from recent boxes. Currently, just Birchbox.  I've been thinking about Ipsy again since the bags are getting better but.. eh.  I would have LOVED Popsugar's April 2014 box, but I didn't jump on that like a dummy *facepalm*.  I also just got a Beautybox 5 and a Memebox, but I'm not a *regular subscriber*
  • Assuming they are separately packaged and clearly labeled, what are your feelings on prepared-by-sender beauty items? Unsealed samples? Items from the bulk foods section? 100% okay with dis :)
  • Assuming the same dollar amount is spent, would you prefer several mini items, or one or two full-sized items?  I will be happy with whatever :)  I'm a sucker for minis (they're adorable, right?), but I love full sized items too (so amazingly convenient).  

 


Brand-and-color-specific time!


  • What is your all-time favorite beauty item and why?  Gotta be black eyeliner.  Cause it's magical.  Not brand specific, I think I own 80.
  • What specific product(s) are you lusting after? Feel free to link to a wishlist with particulars!  This is way way out of the budget so don't even think about it, but I have an irrational love for the UD Electric palette.  One day I'll just.. buy it.  Cause.. I want to.
  • What make-up items do you use every day?  Black eyeliner, mascara, and some kind of lipstick.  That's minimal.  Full day I use everything in my makeup bag.
  • What are your holy grail items? Holy crap? HG is They're Real mascara- especially the minis.  For some reason, the minis work better for me, maybe I'm crazy.  Holy crap item?  Um.. I dunno.. I really hate Dr. Jart's BB cream- but mostly because it looks grey on my skin.  Way to go, olive complexion.
  • What one item/product are you interested in, but just have't gotten around to trying?  Indie makeup brands.  I think they're so cool.  If whoever's my godmother loves indie brands and can help me out in that way, I'd love it.  If not, I'm totally a Sephora gal too :)  Also I need to get a handle on how to use loose shadows.. cause damn.. I'm terrible at it.

 


General product section, aka not brand/color specific


  • What one product can you just not get enough of?  Eyeliner for makeup.. I'm such a sucker for all things moisturizing related and yummy smelling.  Like, if you smell it and want to eat it (anywhere from a cookie to a cucumber.. and oranges) I'm down.
  • What one product do you actually use more than any other? What runs out quickest in your make-up drawer? Mascara.  And eyeliner.. cause.. maybe no one wants to tell me that I look like the emo kid from middle school.
  • What product(s) can you absolutely not use at all for reasons other than allergies/sensitivities listed in the background section (e.g., I can't use foot scrubbers because my feet are too ticklish)?  I just found out that I have an irrational aversion to makeup products with the word "cheese" in the title.  Thanks, Memebox.  But I'll try just about everything once.
  • What items (makeup/skincare/tool) do you feel are missing from your routine?  Better eyeshadow brushes, specifically, a pencil brush.. I have one that I use for everything.. thanks, Real Techniques crease brush, you get me through most days.
  • What tools/products are you looking to add, even if they are not missing?  I'm gonna refer to my previous answer, I long for a beautiful pencil brush.
  • What beauty-related product(s) do you just not want to receive?  Lipgloss.  I just don't like it.

 


Brands:


  • What brand do you have more products from than any other? Any particular reason?  Benefit.  Because they always have Birchbox events and give me wine.  And then because I'm tipsy, I forget what a spending limit is.
  • What brand(s) have you been wanting to try but haven't gotten around to?  Indies.  So intrigued, don't know where to start.
  • What brand(s) do you not want?  Umm.  I'm a packaging sucker.. so things that aren't prettily packaged generally will get no attention.  Here's looking at you, Chocolate Bar Palette impulse buy- you're just too adorable.

 


Colors (not specific shades)


  • Answer quick like a bunny! Favorite color?  Black!  And coral.  I need to become a purple person though- I'm headed to Northwestern about the time all of this happens!
  • Favorite color combination?  Black and gold.
  • Color scheme of your home/room, either in reality or your imagination.  Ooh did I answer that other question wrongly?  Light blue and red :D
  • What one color (not brand/product specific) do you use more than any other? Why?  Copper/gold.  It brings out the lovely sunkissedness of my olive complexion *flips hair*
  • Color(s) to avoid?  Yellow.  My olive undertones are NOT a fan.  Unless looking bruised is in this year.

 


Scents


  • What's your favorite perfume/wearable scent of all time? What's your favorite perfume/wearable scent to wear in the summer?  I'm into my Fresh Life Rollerball.  And citrus.
  • What is the fragrance of your favorite home fragrance (e.g., candle, diffuser)?  Vanilla things.  Because I want to be able to eat what I'm smelling.  I have a wallflower though constantly plugged in (okay, maybe two) that are always in Fresh Linen.
  • Describe your favorite scents/notes, without naming a specific perfume or fragrance.  Vanilla, citrus, sandalwood (light), woody, grass, fresh, light
  • Without naming a specific perfume or fragrance, what are your favorite perfume companies? Favorite home fragrance companies?  Bath and Body Works for home (they're all I use..), and to be honest, I'm not a huge perfume person.. I care more about the scent than the brand.
  • What form of perfume do you prefer (oil, alcohol-based, spray, open bottle, rollerball)? What form of home fragrance do you prefer (candle, diffuser, air freshener, plug-in)?  Rollerball till I die.  Spraying stuff makes me cough.  I use plug ins in my room, diffusers in my closet, and candles all the time.  Where I can see them.
  • Other than perfume/fragrance oils, what is your favorite type of toiletry/scented item?  Conditioners and hair things.  Holy jesus Living Proof's smell and Amika's smell and Beauty Protector's smell.  And It's A 10 if it didn't make my scalp want to break out into an icky mess.
  • Scent(s)/notes(s) to avoid?  Florals.. and "white" smells.  Not a fan.  Headache central.

 


And finally (at least for the beauty section) Yes/No?


  • Foils- Yes
  • Deluxe Samples -Yes
  • Hair Oil- YES
  • Face Oil- YES
  • Perfume- Depends
  • Sunblock/Sunscreen- Nope
  • Self-tanner/tanning wipes- Yes

 


And extra non-makeup-related questions!


  • What designs/designers do you prefer (please limit to top 3) Kate Spade, anything from Express, uhh.. yeah, that's where I shop.
  • List any public wishlists (Amazon, etsy, Sephora), swap lists and/or Tumbler/Pinterest entries your fairy godparent should consult... nada, sorry :(
  • Is your box all about you? Or would you like to see things in your box for your significant other/spouse, kid(s), pet(s), whatever? If the latter, please list age/gender/species. Not to be selfish or anything.. but.. it's just me :)  I have plant babies that I'm trying not to kill, does that count?  Herb garden, you will be mine.
  • If your fairy godparent curates an awesome set of items for you, would you rather they be wrapped individually, or be a huge smorgasbord that you can look at all at once? Would you prefer to open each gift slowly and methodically or will it be ribbons and bows and paper flying as you tear into it?  I love things that are wrapped individually, and I'll tear into it.
  • It's a hot, sunny 90-degree summer day and you have no obligation to be anywhere in particular. Where are you and what are you doing?  On my rooftop, reading a book.  Or going to the beach, and also reading a book.  Of course, this is after I've slept in and browsed the internet/caught up on the TV program I missed last night...

 


And advanced fun stuff:


  • What do you do in your spare time?

  • If your fairy godparent curates an awesome set of items for you, would you rather they be wrapped individually, or be a huge smorgasbord that you can look at all at once? Would you prefer to open each gift slowly and methodically or will it be ribbons and bows and paper flying as you tear into it?  If you want to wrap each item individually, go for it!  I'll be unwrapping slowly, with much giggling and squee-ing!

OMG!  Too excited!
 

Absolute must-answers:
·        ALLERGIES: I am allergic to fruits and most lotions and creams.
·        Dietary restrictions: None—one of my puppies once ate a pie plate and was fine, so I think our family is pretty tough in that area!
·        Skin allergies/sensitivities: Nickel allergy (jewelry) and allergic to most lotions/creams.  I also am sensitive to some latex containing plastics, so I tend to stay away from flip-flops, etc.
Would you like to get a heads-up from a Fairy that your package is on its way, or would you prefer its delivery to be a complete surprise? Yes, I absolutely want to know!  My address is a PO Box, so unless I can track it, the package might sit for days unloved!  What horror!

If the latter, please list age/gender/species.  You totally do not have to do anything for them, but I do have three large dogs.  They like treats, rawhide, and the youngest loves the bubble wrap with the small bubbles—he can destroy any toy in seconds, but a sheet of that stuff will occupy him for around an hour.  If you wrapped everything in bubble wrap he would think it was the best day ever!
·        If your fairy godparent curates an awesome set of items for you, would you rather they be wrapped individually, or be a huge smorgasbord that you can look at all at once? Would you prefer to open each gift slowly and methodically or will it be ribbons and bows and paper flying as you tear into it?  I do not think I could open my gifts over a period of days—everything will be unwrapped in minutes, how it is wrapped is completely up to you.

And advanced fun stuff:
·        What do you do in your spare time? Are there any hobby-related items you would like?  I like to garden.  Most of my plants are perennials/bulbs (i.e. active during the spring/summer and dormant during the winter—just like me).  I would take a cute pair of gardening gloves or tall socks over flip flops any day.
·        Fandoms, favorite TV shows, movies, books, music, Hogwarts house, etc.  I like cozy British Mysteries and TV shows.
·        What non-beauty item(s) would send you over the moon?  Fudge—chocolate or peanut butter, with or without nuts, I am totally craving it!
·        Pirates or ninjas?  Hmmmmm….Pirates if they are Errol Flynn type pirates.
·        Zombies: Yay or nay?  NAY!  The undead should not rise!

Yes/no, the extras division:
·        Virtual gifts (ecerts/gift certs/eBooks): Yes on everything but ebooks, I like physical books.
·        Hand-made items (from your godparent or purchased): Yes
·        Candles: Yes—I like scents like Pomelo Grapefruit and Snap Peas from Bath and Body Shop

Wahoo!  I figured it out.  SO FUN.  I'm loving getting to know all you ladies!  

 

(Tagging @@meaganola to put in the directory.)

 

 

 

 

Absolute must-answers (note:  If you do not wish to post answers to these three questions in public, please send a PM to @magicalmom.  These answers will only be shared with your Fairy Godparent):

ALLERGIES!! Please list any allergies to products, foods, scents, etc., that you or anyone living in your household has! None

Dietary restrictions: Do you or anyone in your household have any food-related restrictions/sensitivities, etc? Would you prefer not to receive food items? I love food.  I love snacks, chocolate, candy.  Yes to food of any kind.  ;-)

Skin allergies/sensitivities: Do you or anyone in your household have any skin allergies/sensitivities not already listed that your Fairy Godparent should know about (e.g., wool, metals in jewelry, etc)? Do you avoid silicone, sulfates, etc? Nope.  Send me anything.

 

Would you like to get a heads-up from a Fairy that your package is on its way, or would you prefer its delivery to be a complete surprise?  It’s up to my Fairy Godmother.  This is just as much fun for her as it is for me so I’ll let her decide what she wants to do.

 

Not mandatory but cannot be recommended highly enough:  Do you have an on-forum swap/Midsummer Dream list?  If it's anywhere other than this post, URL here, please! http://www.makeuptalk.com/f/topic/131932-midsummer-nights-magical-list-of-answers/ 

 

 

Basic background information:

 

Style descriptions! Brief is better.

Makeup - I wear anything & any brand.  Neutrals, Brights, Colors, Pastels.  I just love makeup.  Introduce me to your favorite colors & brands.  I’m up for a new adventure.

Hair - I have short blond hair.  I straighten it with a flat iron or flip it out.  I do enjoy hair products & end up sharing a lot of them with my daughters.  I love putting flower clips or vintage-y bows above my ear.

Nails - Painted ALWAYS.  I wear any colors & love different finishes.  I’ve never tried indie polishes or Butter London, but hear they’re great.  I wear anything though.

Skincare (face/neck) - I’m a skincare addict.  I love exfoliators, masks, cleansers, oils, lotions, serums, eye creams.  I use it all & love it & love trying new things.

Bodycare (every where else) - I love baths & showers.  LUSH is heaven on Earth to me.  I use a lot of lotion & hand creams.  I prefer food/fruity smelling things over florals.  I’m a “fruity” person.  ;-)

Home - mint green & khaki (living room), neutral for the rest of the house (want to paint more, but one thing at a time).  I’m a Mickey Mouse fanatic so my bathroom & kitchen are all Mickey Mouse: black, red, white, with hints of yellow.

 

 

More advanced questions:

 

Solve for X: I am wearing too much X, and I DO NOT CARE! Bright Lipstick

Cruelty-free or vegan. Important, must-have, nice, don't care?  It’s nice, but I’m not picky.  I’m grateful for anything you send so don’t stress about this.

Please list any subscription boxes you receive, along with anything you may covet from recent boxes. Birchbox, Julep occasionally, Starlooks, Glossybox occasionally.  There’s not anything I covet right now.  I just love it all.

Assuming they are separately packaged and clearly labeled, what are your feelings on prepared-by-sender beauty items? Unsealed samples? Items from the bulk foods section?  YES!  This swap is NOT about me. . . it’s about ME learning about YOUR favorite things.  You are introducing me to YOUR favorites.  Send me ANYTHING.

Assuming the same dollar amount is spent, would you prefer several mini items, or one or two full-sized items?  I’m a mini girl, but will accept anything given to me.  I’m just grateful to be here.

If your fairy godparent curates an awesome set of items for you, would you rather they be wrapped individually, or be a huge smorgasbord that you can look at all at once? Would you prefer to open each gift slowly and methodically or will it be ribbons and bows and paper flying as you tear into it?  Oh definitely wrapped individually.  I’m SO slow & methodical it’s ridiculous.  I think of this whole thing as a full on “experience” so I want to cherish every second of it.

Mine's ready to be added @meaganola  :wub: 

 

 

 

Absolute must-answers

·         ALLERGIES!! Only codeine, and I doubt you'd think I need cough medicine   :P 

·         Dietary restrictions: Do you or anyone in your household have any food-related restrictions/sensitivities, etc? Would you prefer not to receive food items? No restrictions and I'll gladly take food items!

·         Skin allergies/sensitivities: Do you or anyone in your household have any skin allergies/sensitivities not already listed that your Fairy Godparent should know about (e.g., wool, metals in jewelry, etc)? Do you avoid silicone, sulfates, etc? Try to avoid sulfates in hair products and usually need face cleansers/moisturizers that are safe for sensitive skin. I deal with some reactive redness otherwise.

Would you like to get a heads-up from a Fairy that your package is on its way, or would you prefer its delivery to be a complete surprise? A heads-up would increase the anticipation factor for me!

 

Do you have an on-forum swap/Midsummer Dream list?  http://www.makeuptalk.com/f/topic/131940-utgal2004s-midsummer-nights-dreamlist/

 

Basic background information:

·         Makeup: Classy/neutral during week, add a little twist for the weekendWear full makeup 6 days a week.  Fair skin so cool tones look best. 

·         Hair: Fine curly brown hair that just started getting colored to cover grey.  During summer I let it air dry curly.  Big on ponytails, not on headbands.

·         Nails: Almost always painted. Prefer bright or pastel colors over neutrals and darker shades.

·         Skincare: Dry skin most of the year but normal/combination during summer (grrrr Houston humidity).  Always wear sunscreen, trying more anti-aging products, like serums and dark circle eye treatments. 

·         Bodycare: Totally girly… fruity, sugary, sweet. Love moisturizing shower and bath products. 

·         Home: I love color. My living room is light grey and shades of purple, bedroom is in jewel tones but I’d like to make it pastels for the summer, bathroom is red and navy.

 

More advanced questions:

·          I am wearing too much lipgloss, and I DO NOT CARE!

·         Cruelty-free or vegan. Important, must-have, nice, don't care? It’s nice and I’ve been trying more cruelty free but it’s not necessary and I still use other stuff.  This Texas girl could never be vegan.

·         You just won a $50 gift card to your favorite beauty store. Which store is it, and what will you buy? Sephora for an eyeshadow palette.

·         Please list any subscription boxes you receive, along with anything you may covet from recent boxes.  Ipsy, Glossybox, Popsugar, FFF, Bijoux box and re-started birchbox in Feb.  Have Julep but have skipped since November.  See trade list.

·         Assuming they are separately packaged and clearly labeled, what are your feelings on prepared-by-sender beauty items? Unsealed samples? Items from the bulk foods section? Perfect, send them my way.

·         Assuming the same dollar amount is spent, would you prefer several mini items, or one or two full-sized items? Whatever you have more fun shopping for because I’m going to love the surprise regardless.

 

Brand-and-color-specific time!

·         What is your all-time favorite beauty item and why?  Nail polish.  I change colors twice a week to suit my mood.

·         What specific product(s) are you lusting after? http://www.makeuptalk.com/f/topic/131940-utgal2004s-midsummer-nights-dreamlist/

·         What are your holy grail items? Holy crap? Love Aquaphor healing ointment for lips, Nars Tinted Moisturizer in Alaska, Aveeno Positively Radiant SPF 30, Anastasia Lash Genius, and Bobbi Brown Corrector in Porcelain Peach.  Still searching for the rest…

·         What one item/product are you interested in, but just have't gotten around to trying? Korean or other Asian makeup (I don’t even know where to start).

 

General product section, aka not brand/color specific

·         What one product can you just not get enough of? Lippies!

·         What one product do you actually use more than any other? What runs out quickest in your make-up drawer?  Hand cream for my dry hands

·         What product(s) can you absolutely not use at all for reasons other than allergies/sensitivities listed in the background section (e.g., I can't use foot scrubbers because my feet are too ticklish)? Blush because I have too much pink in skin.  I love highlighters, illuminators, luminizers, and bronzers instead.

·         What items (makeup/skincare/tool) do you feel are missing from your routine? Eyeliner.  I use it for special occasions but usually find the dark shades look stark on my fair skin. I’d like to try some colored eyeliners.

·         What beauty-related product(s) do you just not want to receive? Eyelashes, loose pigment/glitter, blush.

 

Brands:

·         What brand do you have more products from than any other? Any particular reason? Bobbi Brown because I went through a bad breakup, walked up to a counter, told them to change my look, and walked out with most of what they used.  I’ve never before or since bought that much at once.  I want to try other brands and love so many others.

·         What brand(s) have you been wanting to try but haven't gotten around to? I’ve never used or only tried one product from Urban Decay, theBalm, Obsessive Compulsive, Korres, Pacifica, Mally, Marc Jacobs, Laura Geller, Lorac, Rimmel, Pixi, indie nail polish.

·         Color scheme of your home/room, either in reality or your imagination.  My living room is light grey and shades of purple, bedroom is in jewel tones but I’d like to make it pastels for the summer, bathroom is red and navy.  I’d love a white and blue room.

·         What one color (not brand/product specific) do you use more than any other? Why? Pink because it looks nice with my cool undertones.

·         Color(s) to avoid? Bright yellows and orange-y corals (like pink-based corals though).

 

Scents

·         What's your favorite perfume/wearable scent of all time? What's your favorite perfume/wearable scent to wear in the summer? I’ve only worn perfume for about a year so I don’t have a favorite yet.  I like Fresh Life, Especially Escada, Marc Jacobs Oh Lola, D&G Light Blue, and Tokyomilk Chance.  Burberry Brit Sheer was one of my first and I love it, especially in the summer.

·         What is the fragrance of your favorite home fragrance (e.g., candle, diffuser)?  Make it smell like a fruity cocktail or the beach, and you’ll be my best friend forever!

·         Describe your favorite scents/notes, without naming a specific perfume or fragrance.  Citruses, pear, coconut, pineapple, berries, clean laundry, water

·         Without naming a specific perfume or fragrance, what are your favorite perfume companies? Favorite home fragrance companies? Don’t really have any favorites yet for perfumes.  I’m open to trying lots.  Like Illume, B&BW, Archipelago, Yankee, Pacifica, and local homemade candles for home.

·         What form of perfume do you prefer (oil, alcohol-based, spray, open bottle, rollerball)? What form of home fragrance do you prefer (candle, diffuser, air freshener, plug-in)? Any perfume type, candles for home.

·         Other than perfume/fragrance oils, what is your favorite type of toiletry/scented item? Shower gel and bubble bath.

·         Deluxe Samples Yes.

·         Hair Oil No      

·         Face Oil Yes

·         Perfume Yes

·         Sunblock/Sunscreen Yes, definitely!

·         Self-tanner/tanning wipes Yes, if for light skin.

 

And extra non-makeup-related questions!

·         What designs/designers do you prefer (please limit to top 3): vintage/romantic (toile, damask, paisley, etc); nautical or ocean; anything about or with books.

·         List any public wishlists (Amazon, etsy, Sephora), swap lists and/or Tumbler/Pinterest entries your fairy godparent should consult.  http://www.makeuptalk.com/f/topic/130090-utgal2004s-trade-list/

·         Is your box all about you? Or would you like to see things in your box for your significant other/spouse, kid(s), pet(s), whatever? It’s for me! I spoil friends and family with gifts often.

·         If your fairy godparent curates an awesome set of items for you, would you rather they be wrapped individually, or be a huge smorgasbord that you can look at all at once? Would you prefer to open each gift slowly and methodically or will it be ribbons and bows and paper flying as you tear into it?  That’s completely up to you.  It’s just really awesome to get a surprise from someone.  I learned from SS that I’ll open quickly and then marvel at things for days.

·         It's a hot, sunny 90-degree summer day and you have no obligation to be anywhere in particular. Where are you and what are you doing?  That’s relatively cool for Texas summer but I’d be sitting on a patio, drinking iced tea/lemonade, reading a book.

 

And advanced fun stuff:

·         What do you do in your spare time? Are there any hobby-related items you would like? I’m a big reader and love books.  I recently started making my own jewelry with beads and broken pieces of jewelry.  Love hanging out with girlfriends (and wine), going to museums/theaters, writing long letters to my pen pals, and trying to get back into the swing of exercising more.

·         Fandoms, favorite TV shows, movies, books, music, Hogwarts house, etc. Jane Austen, Anne of Green Gables, Little Women and other stong/independent women artists, authors, leaders, etc.  Into Game of Thrones, House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, and Hunger Games series. Really love all types of music.  My movie and tv tastes are all over the place.  Check out my profile for some ideas.

·         What non-beauty item(s) would send you over the moon? Something homemade or handmade.  Fun office supplies or girly stationary.

·         Pirates or ninjas? Ninjas.  I hate pirates.

·         Zombies: Yay or nay? Nay.

·         Disney! Favorite movie, hero, villain? Brave for the strong female lead, Cinderella, Ariel and Belle for princesses, Anastasia as a story that’s always interested me that Disney made into a movie, and Fantasia for the classical music and dancing hippos and flowers.

·         Describe three things decorating your living space: Impressionist art prints, gerbera daisies, and pics of friends/family.

Yes/no, the extras division:

·         Puzzle Books: I’m terrible at these so no thanks.

Would you prefer to open each gift slowly and methodically or will it be ribbons and bows and paper flying as you tear into it? I would prefer wrapped individually if it wasn’t too much trouble.  In my head I like to think I would open everything slowly but it would probably be bows and paper flying.
  • It's a hot, sunny 90-degree summer day and you have no obligation to be anywhere in particular. Where are you and what are you doing?  Might be outside at my pool (with massive amounts of sun block on) drinking a margarita.

 

And advanced fun stuff:

  • What do you do in your spare time? Are there any hobby-related items you would like? I wish I did more.  Night shift makes me a mess.  I sit around in pajamas way too much.  I can’t think of any hobby related items I would want.
  • Fandoms, favorite TV shows, movies, books, music, Hogwarts house, etc. – Favorite v shows would be the walking dead, the following, bates motel, full house, supernatural, and chopped.  I like suspenseful books.  Gillian Flynn is one of my favorite authors.  As far as music goes I like a lot of alternative and pop.  I especially love Katy Perry and Lorde.
  • What non-beauty item(s) would send you over the moon? Anything local or handmade.  Pens, I always loose mine and need them for work.
  • Pirates or ninjas? Neither.
  • Zombies: Yay or nay? Yes.  Seriously obsessed with the walking dead over here.  I always want to bring home those cardboard cuts outs of zombies from hot topic.
  • Disney! Favorite movie, hero, villain? Beauty and the Beast.  I love Belle.
  • Describe three things decorating your living space. – Puppy calendar, BB diamond tray,  pictures

Basic background information:

 

Style descriptions! Brief is better.

 •Makeup – I tend to be on the classic side, but love lip color and will try just about anything but orange.

 •Hair – I have a medium-curly perm, and highlights, medium-length.

 •Nails – I’m experimenting more lately with bright colors, glitter, indie polishes and holographic shades.

 •Skincare (face/neck) – I usually use Clinique 3-Step, but also enjoy a good mask and treatments with aromatherapy

 •Bodycare (every where else) – lots of scented stuff!

 •Home – Eclectic.

 

More advanced questions:

 •Solve for X: I am wearing too much X, and I DO NOT CARE!

Too many maxi dresses. I am plus-sized but want to get cuter and shorter dresses that don’t make me look like a rhino.

 •Cruelty-free or vegan. Important, must-have, nice, don't care?

Cruelty-free is good and I feel safe with any product approved for sale in the EU. Vegan is not necessary, but I won’t turn down a good-quality vegan product!

 •You just won a $50 gift card to your favorite beauty store. Which store is it, and what will you buy?

Probably Ulta, and I would right now stock up on bath salts and a nice lip gloss.

 •Please list any subscription boxes you receive, along with anything you may covet from recent boxes.

I currently take Birchbox, Ipsy, Sample Society and Julep. I am waiting on my first Beauty Box 5. I’m really wanting the Too Faced bronzer that may be in my May Ipsy, and the Laqa lip colors I think I recently saw in a Birchbox.

 •Assuming they are separately packaged and clearly labeled, what are your feelings on prepared-by-sender beauty items? Unsealed samples? Items from the bulk foods section?

As far as food, with very few exceptions I respectfully request that any candy or food items be kept to a minimum as I am diabetic. Many samples such as hair and body products already come frequently unsealed, so as long as it appears to have a decent quantity of product and the caps are well-attached to prevent leakage, I’m good.

 •Assuming the same dollar amount is spent, would you prefer several mini items, or one or two full-sized items?

Either a little of both, or a pile of minis!

 

 Brand-and-color-specific time!

 •What is your all-time favorite beauty item and why?

Clinique Black Honey lipstick. I can put it on without a mirror and it looks flawless; it goes with everything; everyone can wear it.

 •What specific product(s) are you lusting after? Feel free to link to a wishlist with particulars!

For some reason I cannot find my recent wish list on this site! My recent cravings include Too Faced bronzer and shadow sets, Stila convertible colors (Peony, Lillium) and lip/cheek colors, as well as lip glazes; Clinique base and powder (haven’t been to the counter yet—if you go with this, please use Covergirl shade 120 Creamy Natural as a guide); shadows in plums, mauves, berries, neutrals, greens;  liners in fun colors; MAC lipstick in Russian Red or Fetish; a nice champagne-pink or rose gold allover face color or highlighter; light-toned bronzers and blushes; scented hand creams, bath salts and body butters.

 •What make-up items do you use every day?

Lipstick or lip gloss, always; blush or bronzer, sometimes both; powder

 •What are your holy grail items? Holy crap?

By Terry Rose balm, which does a real number on rough cuticles and lips. I rarely buy it, but it is a worthwhile splurge and lasts a good long while. My holy crap items are probably the entirety of the Chanel skin care line and 100% Pure makeup.

 •What one item/product are you interested in, but just have't gotten around to trying?

Inglot products.

 

General product section, aka not brand/color specific

•What one product can you just not get enough of?

Lipstick!

 •What one product do you actually use more than any other? What runs out quickest in your make-up drawer?

Revlon Fig Jam lip butter

 •What product(s) can you absolutely not use at all for reasons other than allergies/sensitivities listed in the background section (e.g., I can't use foot scrubbers because my feet are too ticklish)?

None really; any issues I would have would be due to allergies, but fortunately I have little issue with most makeup and skincare (except for a really bad reaction to Chanel products once.)

 •What items (makeup/skincare/tool) do you feel are missing from your routine?

Eye and nail colors. I just recently got back into wearing shadows again after nearly 20 years of just wearing liners, and I want to expand my nail wardrobe.

 •What tools/products are you looking to add, even if they are not missing?

I’d like to get a nicer set of brushes.

 •What beauty-related product(s) do you just not want to receive?

Mascara, only because I have enough of it right now to last me into the next presidential administration.

 

 

Brands:

 •What brand do you have more products from than any other? Any particular reason?

Maybe NYC, because it’s so cheap and I like to test the waters with new colors by trying with less expensive products before spending big bucks.

 •What brand(s) have you been wanting to try but haven't gotten around to?

Inglot; Butter London (only the color cosmetics, I’ve tried the polishes); Calvin Klein (makeup only); MUFE; Smashbox; Lorac.

 •What brand(s) do you not want?

Not really; I’m fairly open minded about brands ranging from drugstore to the highest end. I do not want Chanel skin care, however!

 

 

Colors (not specific shades):

 •Answer quick like a bunny! Favorite color? Purple!

 •Favorite color combination? Purple and Pink

 •Color scheme of your home/room, either in reality or your imagination Pearl gray and light pink

 •What one color (not brand/product specific) do you use more than any other? Why? Light to medium berry  shades, because they seem to work right with me.

 •Color(s) to avoid?

 Oh dear God, orange!!! It rarely works with me as anything but an accent color on clothing, and I never wear it as a main color if I can help it.

 

Scents

 •What's your favorite perfume/wearable scent of all time? What's your favorite perfume/wearable scent to wear in the summer?

My all-time favorite scent is called Isvaraya by Indult. In the warm months I like CKOne, Guerlain Acqua Allegoria herba Fresca, Origins Ginger Essence, L’Occitane Lemon Verbena, Jean Nate, Bath and Body Works White Citrus.

 •What is the fragrance of your favorite home fragrance (e.g., candle, diffuser)?

Anything citrusy.

 •Describe your favorite scents/notes, without naming a specific perfume or fragrance.

Citrus, patchouli, spice, chypre.

 •Without naming a specific perfume or fragrance, what are your favorite perfume companies? Favorite home fragrance companies?

Calvin Klein, L’Occitane, Le Couvent des Minimes, Guerlain, YSL, Bath and Body Works (body and home); Yankee Candle.

 •What form of perfume do you prefer (oil, alcohol-based, spray, open bottle, rollerball)? What form of home fragrance do you prefer (candle, diffuser, air freshener, plug-in)?

I’m pretty open in terms of perfumes. For my home, I prefer candles or plug-ins.

 •Other than perfume/fragrance oils, what is your favorite type of toiletry/scented item?

Bath salts, bubble bath, dusting powder.

 •Scent(s)/notes(s) to avoid?

 Musk as the predominant note.

 

 

And finally (at least for the beauty section), Yes/No?

 •Foils

 •Deluxe Samples

 •Hair Oil

 •Face Oil

 •Perfume

 •Sunblock/Sunscreen

 •Self-tanner/tanning wipes

Yes to all but tanning wipes.

 

And extra non-makeup-related questions!

 •What designs/designers do you prefer (please limit to top 3)

I’m not sure on this one, at least for clothes, but I like Michael Kors bags.

 •List any public wishlists (Amazon, etsy, Sephora), swap lists and/or Tumbler/Pinterest entries your fairy godparent should consult. N/A

 •Is your box all about you? Or would you like to see things in your box for your significant other/spouse, kid(s), pet(s), whatever? If the latter, please list age/gender/species.

I have cats and would love to see some kitty toys (I respectfully request no feather trim) and/or catnip!

 •If your fairy godparent curates an awesome set of items for you, would you rather they be wrapped individually, or be a huge smorgasbord that you can look at all at once? Would you prefer to open each gift slowly and methodically or will it be ribbons and bows and paper flying as you tear into it?

I’d like little bitty wrappings that I will tear into with claws and teeth.

 •It's a hot, sunny 90-degree summer day and you have no obligation to be anywhere in particular. Where are you and what are you doing?

In a nice coffee shop with a good book.

 

And advanced fun stuff:

 •What do you do in your spare time? Are there any hobby-related items you would like?

I knit and crochet, so yarn and hooks or needles would be a great thing; I also like to read about religion and mythology and ancient societies, and I read tarot and runes.

 •Fandoms, favorite TV shows, movies, books, music, Hogwarts house, etc.

I’m into The Big Bang Theory and Mel Brooks!

Random Kellie Comments: I love trying new things, and I'm a terrible girl. Or at least I was until I started reading and creeping on MUT and sub boxes so now I'm an Ok girl. However I am open to trying new things. So I hope this was helpful. Some more random things, I fundraiser for a huge state school for a living. I work with college students while doing this, so despite being almost 27 I work with a ton of 18-22 year olds every day! I can't spell. I have a super dry sarcastic sense of humor, I'm very honest, sometimes to a fault. I am HOPING to get a promotion soon where I travel a ton! I LOVE to travel, all over the place. My favorite memory traveling is Zipling in Costa Rica over the rainforest. I highlight encourage anyone who loves traveling to do this!  I also work nights and weekends. I LOVE to read, country music, etc.  I'm trying to think of other fun facts. I like makeup ;-), Subscription Boxes, Jewelry! Oh I am super into loooong necklaces now, and urm... My ears are pierced. (ya know just so you know) and I can share anything else you want to know! Just get someone else to ask lol!

Mod reminder: One post per person in here, please! If you are having technical problems, please PM @ or me, and one of us will fix it for you. I may not be able to get to it until the evening because I'm on mobile during the day, and that sucks for editing, but if I can't take care of it during the day, it *will* be fixed that evening when I get home from work. Thanks!

Will the third time be the charm?

 

 

Absolute must-answers:
•ALLERGIES!! Please list any allergies to products, foods, scents, etc., that you or anyone living in your household has! None
•Dietary restrictions: Do you or anyone in your household have any food-related restrictions/sensitivities, etc? Would you prefer not to receive food items? While we LOVE food of all sorts, temperatures in the 90s + a black mailbox = picture in the dictionary of “hot mess.” Probably best not to send food items in the summer, thanks.
•Skin allergies/sensitivities: Do you or anyone in your household have any skin allergies/sensitivities not already listed that your Fairy Godparent should know about (e.g., wool, metals in jewelry, etc)? Do you avoid silicone, sulfates, etc? No.
Would you like to get a heads-up from a Fairy that your package is on its way, or would you prefer its delivery to be a complete surprise? I enjoy package stalking, so if I could get a heads-up when it’s on the way, that would be great!
Not mandatory but cannot be recommended highly enough: Do you have an on-forum swap/Midsummer Dream list? If it's anywhere other than this post, URL here, please!
http://www.makeuptalk.com/f/topic/132078-jennm149s-midsummer-dream-list/

Basic background information:

Style descriptions! Brief is better.
• Makeup – Neutral, classic most of the time. I do LOVE colored mascara, though
• Hair – Very fine, slightly longer than shoulder length, light brown with blonde highlights
• Nails – I wear EVERY NAIL POLISH. Love it all!
• Skincare (face/neck) – I am religiously using PTR Laser-free eye and face serum. Otherwise, I just use whatever is around, as long as it’s not for oily skin/acne (I’m normal – slightly dry).
• Bodycare (every where else) – Shower gel girl (don’t do bars). I generally avoid body lotion because I can’t stand the “sticky” feeling (although I will generally just use body lotion as hand lotion, so feel free to send). I am obsessive about cuticle products.
• Home – I usually get answers like “eclectic classics” when I take online home style quizzes. Colors are primarily blue and yellow.
 

More advanced questions:
•Solve for X: I am wearing too much mascara*, and I DO NOT CARE! * I do try to keep it below Tammy Faye Bakker level, though. And if you have to google her to see what I mean, boy, am I too old for this.
•Cruelty-free or vegan. Important, must-have, nice, don't care? Nice to have, but not necessary
•You just won a $50 gift card to your favorite beauty store. Which store is it, and what will you buy? Sephora and I’d probably buy some new skin care product.
•Please list any subscription boxes you receive, along with anything you may covet from recent boxes. I get 2 Birchboxes, Julep, Glitter Guilty, the Rainbow Honey mystery bag, Square Hue, Glossybox, the Llarowe Box Indied … honestly, I can’t think of anything I’m really lusting after from any of them.
•Assuming they are separately packaged and clearly labeled, what are your feelings on prepared-by-sender beauty items? Unsealed samples? Items from the bulk foods section? I’ve had some bad experiences with these things, I’d rather not receive these, thanks.
•Assuming the same dollar amount is spent, would you prefer several mini items, or one or two full-sized items? Either is fine, but I generally prefer minis of things I haven’t tried before.
 

Brand-and-color-specific time!
•What is your all-time favorite beauty item and why? My Beauty Blender. I always had issues getting the right amount of coverage, but with the BB, my foundation looks great every day.
•What specific product(s) are you lusting after? Feel free to link to a wishlist with particulars!
https://www.sephora.com/profile/MyAccount/MyList/myList.jsp?mediaId=16900028#!mediaId=16900028&view=grid&sortBy=priceLowToHigh
Also – see Midsummer Wishlist on MUT
•What make-up items do you use every day? Foundation, blush, concealer and highlighter pencil, brow powder & gel, lash primer, mascara and waterproof top coat, black tightline, lip balm.
•What are your holy grail items? Holy crap? HG: ABH Lash Genius, KvD Tatoo liner HC: most lip glosses because I don’t like the sticky feeling from them
•What one item/product are you interested in, but just haven't gotten around to trying? L’Oreal Butterfly Effects mascara in black or blackest black
 

General product section, aka not brand/color specific
•What one product can you just not get enough of? Nail Polish! Also, mini-mascaras
•What one product do you actually use more than any other? What runs out quickest in your make-up drawer? Black mascara (though maybe because I tend to use minis)
•What product(s) can you absolutely not use at all for reasons other than allergies/sensitivities listed in the background section (e.g., I can't use foot scrubbers because my feet are too ticklish)? I’m not a big fan of most lipsticks or glosses. I just don’t like the feeling on my lips.
•What items (makeup/skincare/tool) do you feel are missing from your routine? Lip colors! If I could find some that I like, I would probably buy them forever!
•What tools/products are you looking to add, even if they are not missing? I am currently using a Kevyn Aucoin lash curler, but am not crazy about it. Would love a suggestion!
•What beauty-related product(s) do you just not want to receive? Hair products. My hair is fussy and I’ve finally got a good routine down with it. Also, skin care items for oily/acne skin.
 

Brands:
•What brand do you have more products from than any other? Any particular reason? Urban Decay – I got a lot of their eyeliners when they were on sale last year.
•What brand(s) have you been wanting to try but haven't gotten around to? Can’t think of any!
•What brand(s) do you not want? Any of the Ipsy fails; BAB,
 

Colors (not specific shades):
•Answer quick like a bunny! Favorite color? Pink
•Favorite color combination? Black and tan
•Color scheme of your home/room, either in reality or your imagination: soft blues and yellows, with some pops of caramel and dark red
•What one color (not brand/product specific) do you use more than any other? Why? Not “a” color, but other than nails and eyeliners (where anything goes), I tend to stick with a fairly neutral, relatively medium tone palette. “Latte”, medium “greige”, pink-peach blushes
•Color(s) to avoid? Bold lipsticks or eyeshadows; shimmery blushes
 

Scents
•What's your favorite perfume/wearable scent of all time? What's your favorite perfume/wearable scent to wear in the summer? Bvlgari Pour Femme is my “all time” favorite. In summer, I like Clinique Happy and Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom & Honey
•What is the fragrance of your favorite home fragrance (e.g., candle, diffuser)? I tend to go with “clean” scents, like Yankee Candle “Clean Cotton”, lemon, or “beachy” scents, like BBW “Dancing Waters” in the summer. Winter/fall – I like cinnamon and pumpkin.
•Describe your favorite scents/notes, without naming a specific perfume or fragrance. In perfumes, I tend to go with florals, maybe with a bit of woodsy notes. I also like anything “beachy” … as long as it doesn’t have coconut
•Without naming a specific perfume or fragrance, what are your favorite perfume companies? Favorite home fragrance companies? Jo Malone, Annick Goutal, Marc Jacobs, Balenciaga
•What form of perfume do you prefer (oil, alcohol-based, spray, open bottle, rollerball)? What form of home fragrance do you prefer (candle, diffuser, air freshener, plug-in)? For perfume, spray. Home fragrance – nothing electric
•Other than perfume/fragrance oils, what is your favorite type of toiletry/scented item? Shower gel
•Scent(s)/notes(s) to avoid? Coconut, apple,
 

And finally (at least for the beauty section), Yes/No?
•Foils Yes
•Deluxe Samples Yes
•Hair Oil No, thanks
•Face Oil Yes
•Perfume Yes
•Sunblock/Sunscreen No, thanks
•Self-tanner/tanning wipes No, thanks.
 

And extra non-makeup-related questions!
•What designs/designers do you prefer (please limit to top 3) Can’t think of any
•List any public wishlists (Amazon, etsy, Sephora), swap lists and/or Tumbler/Pinterest entries your fairy godparent should consult. Sephora list is above
•Is your box all about you? Or would you like to see things in your box for your significant other/spouse, kid(s), pet(s), whatever? If the latter, please list age/gender/species. Honey, this is ALL about me! I’ve oohed and aaahed over enough of my husband’s stuff that I don’t feel at all bad about opening things in front of him. And – while we have 5 cats – they are mostly interested in the box. Literally.
•If your fairy godparent curates an awesome set of items for you, would you rather they be wrapped individually, or be a huge smorgasbord that you can look at all at once? Would you prefer to open each gift slowly and methodically or will it be ribbons and bows and paper flying as you tear into it? I am somewhat compulsive. I loved opening all the individual items and photographing them one by one. But if that’s not your thing, Fairy Godmother, that’s OK with me.
•It's a hot, sunny 90-degree summer day and you have no obligation to be anywhere in particular. Where are you and what are you doing? In an air-conditioned room, praying for winter!
 

And advanced fun stuff:
•What do you do in your spare time? Are there any hobby-related items you would like? I like to knit (socks and small items), read obsessively, photography and making photo books.
•Fandoms, favorite TV shows, movies, books, music, Hogwarts house, etc. Don’t know if I’d call it “fandom” but my fave TV shows are Sherlock and Downtown Abbey. Don’t like “reality” type shows. I would “self-sort” into Ravenclaw, but Pottermore made me a Gryffindor. In addition to Harry Potter, I read a lot of “cozy”-type mysteries and non-fiction business books. Louise Penny is my current favorite author.
•What non-beauty item(s) would send you over the moon?
•Pirates or ninjas? Ninja pirates, of course!
•Zombies: Yay or nay? Yay – after 4 seasons, my husband finally sucked me in to “Walking Dead”
•Disney! Favorite movie, hero, villain? Sleeping Beauty, Merriweather, Maleficent
•Describe three things decorating your living space. My Nana’s antique Blue Willow platter, watercolorish prints I made of photos from my trips and some paintings from my husband’s boyhood home
 

Yes/no, the extras division:
•Virtual gifts (ecerts/gift certs/eBooks) sure – Amazon.com is probably best
•Hand-made items (from your godparent or purchased) Absolutely!
•Candles Sure
•Tarts -- No, thanks
•Reed Diffusers -- No, thanks
•Incense -- No, thanks
•Other home fragrance (say, room spray or scented rocks) -- No, thanks

•List any public wishlists (Amazon, etsy, Sephora), swap lists and/or Tumbler/Pinterest entries your fairy godparent should consult. Everything is here on MUT
•Is your box all about you? Or would you like to see things in your box for your significant other/spouse, kid(s), pet(s), whatever? If the latter, please list age/gender/species. I will leave the choice to the sender, in our house: bedridden disabled Momma age 69, my husband age 56, 10 rescued cats ages 1-12, 1 dog and 1 snake.
•If your fairy godparent curates an awesome set of items for you, would you rather they be wrapped individually, or be a huge smorgasbord that you can look at all at once? Save the money and don't bother wrapping, unless you are just dieing to wrap gifts.

Would you prefer to open each gift slowly and methodically or will it be ribbons and bows and paper flying as you tear into it? Slow, careful and all OCD
•It's a hot, sunny 90-degree summer day and you have no obligation to be anywhere in particular. Where are you and what are you doing? In an air-conditioned room, wearing all cotton, drinking diet lemon-aide or ice water. I loathe hot weather!

Are there any hobby-related items you would like? I like vintage compacts and lipstick cases, old cookbooks
•Fandoms, favorite TV shows, movies, books, music, Hogwarts house, etc. Downtown Abbey, Wizard of Oz, anything Alice Cooper, nonfiction true crime, biographies and autobiographies.,

•Pirates or ninjas? neither
•Zombies: Yay or nay? Nay I say
•Disney! Favorite movie, hero, villain? Mulan, Merida, Pocohontas, Belle and for villians Frolo, Scar, Evil Queen and Maleficent
•Describe three things decorating your living space. Framed embroidery my Momma made, antique reverse glass painting( portrait of an unknown young woman) , cats lounging everywhere
 

Yes/no, the extras division:
•Virtual gifts (ecerts/gift certs/eBooks)  – It's hard for me to get excited over getting a gift certificate all by itself, if other minis or samples are also included it be fine
•Hand-made items (from your godparent or purchased) I would treasure them
•Candles- I like the ones in little tins with a lid, or Greenleaf Starlight (I can never have too many Starlight)
•Tarts --No,thanks

•Other home fragrance (say, room spray or scented rocks) -- No, thanks
•Local Items -- Sounds fun!
•Mix CD -- No, thanks

  Absolute must-answers (note:  If you do not wish to post answers to these three questions in public, please send a PM to @magicalmom.  These answers will only be shared with your Fairy Godparent):


  • ALLERGIES!! Please list any allergies to products, foods, scents, etc., that you or anyone living in your household has!  I'm allergic to most perfumes and strong floral scents.  
  • Dietary restrictions: Do you or anyone in your household have any food-related restrictions/sensitivities, etc? Would you prefer not to receive food items?  No food allergies and boy is food welcome!
  • Skin allergies/sensitivities: Do you or anyone in your household have any skin allergies/sensitivities not already listed that your Fairy Godparent should know about (e.g., wool, metals in jewelry, etc)? Do you avoid silicone, sulfates, etc?  No other allergies except to moth balls.  ( I just discovered this one, it was awful, lol. )  

Would you like to get a heads-up from a Fairy that your package is on its way, or would you prefer its delivery to be a complete surprise?  I would love to know my package is on its way but if my Fairy Godmother wants it to be a surprise that's okay too.  


 


Not mandatory but cannot be recommended highly enough:  Do you have an on-forum swap/Midsummer Dream list?  If it's anywhere other than this post, URL here, please!  Not yet!  When I get one I will post it and add it to my signature.


 


Basic background information:


Style descriptions! Brief is better.


  • Makeup  I tend to go classic or professional but I love to add a pop of color on eyes or lips.  
  • Hair  I love body so I use volumizing products and blow dry.  
  • Nails  I think anything goes for nails.  I once had them painted like little baseballs and then ladybugs!
  • Skincare (face/neck)  I go simple, unscented, and as few ingredients as possible.  
  • Bodycare (every where else)  I love food scented lotions and creams and use them as often as possible.  
  • Home  I love old things and antiques.  I guess my decorating style is a cross between English country house and just plain comfortable.

More advanced questions:


  • Solve for X: I am wearing too much X, and I DO NOT CARE!  Mascara!  I can't get enough of it.
  • Cruelty-free or vegan. Important, must-have, nice, don't care?  I love trying responsibly made products but it's not a must.  
  • You just won a $50 gift card to your favorite beauty store. Which store is it, and what will you buy?  I can't decide between a drugstore and Sephora.  I would either buy Everything that caught my eye at the drugstore (lipliners, lipsticks, nail art kits, mascara, eyeshadows)  or go to Sephora and get the latest Philosophy promotional scent gift and try to find that perfect red lipliner.   
  • Please list any subscription boxes you receive, along with anything you may covet from recent boxes.  I subscribe to Birchbox and Fortune Cookie Soap box.  I recently cancelled my Ipsy subscription.  
  • Assuming they are separately packaged and clearly labeled, what are your feelings on prepared-by-sender beauty items? Unsealed samples? Items from the bulk foods section?  Sounds great!  
  • Assuming the same dollar amount is spent, would you prefer several mini items, or one or two full-sized items?  I can't decide, maybe mini's so I could try a few different things.   :) 

 


Brand-and-color-specific time!


  • What is your all-time favorite beauty item and why?  I love the Elizabeth Mott It's so Big mascara.  My lashes look so long and it never clumps on me.  
  • What specific product(s) are you lusting after? Feel free to link to a wishlist with particulars!  I can never get enough of anything by First Aid Beauty.  (Thanks to my previous SS  :wub: )  I would also love to try a spring/summer lip color and something in the new radiant orchid color.  I would really love to try my Fairy Godmother's HG products.  
  • What make-up items do you use every day?  I never leave the house without mascara and something on my lips.  
  • What are your holy grail items? Holy crap?  Elizabeth Mott mascara.  
  • What one item/product are you interested in, but just have't gotten around to trying?  I've been interested in trying shimmer powders or highlighters for my face.  

 


General product section, aka not brand/color specific


  • What one product can you just not get enough of?   I have to say mascara.  I am also finding myself lusting after lipsticks lately.  
  • What one product do you actually use more than any other? What runs out quickest in your make-up drawer?  Mascara yet again.
  • What product(s) can you absolutely not use at all for reasons other than allergies/sensitivities listed in the background section (e.g., I can't use foot scrubbers because my feet are too ticklish)?  Nothing comes to mind.
  • What items (makeup/skincare/tool) do you feel are missing from your routine?  I would love to have more brushes.  I really only have one small eyeshadow brush and a blush brush.  
  • What tools/products are you looking to add, even if they are not missing?  I want to try to find a good bronzer.  
  • What beauty-related product(s) do you just not want to receive?  I can't think of anything.  

Brands:


  • What brand do you have more products from than any other? Any particular reason?  I have a lot of pixi and city color items but it's mostly because of subscription boxes.  
  • What brand(s) have you been wanting to try but haven't gotten around to?  I hear a lot of great things about Urban Decay but haven't tried much of their stuff.  
  • What brand(s) do you not want?  I'm game to try just about anything.  

 


Colors (not specific shades):


  • Answer quick like a bunny! Favorite color?  Purple
  • Favorite color combination?  I love soft blues and greys.  
  • Color scheme of your home/room, either in reality or your imagination  Pale purple/grey walls with white trim.
  • What one color (not brand/product specific) do you use more than any other? Why?  Nudes and red lip products.  
  • Color(s) to avoid?  Orange?  I'm not really sure, just about every color has a particular shade I find pretty.  

 


Scents


  • What's your favorite perfume/wearable scent of all time? What's your favorite perfume/wearable scent to wear in the summer?  I don't really wear perfume.  My favorite scents are food related like vanilla and spice scents.  
  • What is the fragrance of your favorite home fragrance (e.g., candle, diffuser)?  I love apple cider candles.  
  • Describe your favorite scents/notes, without naming a specific perfume or fragrance.  Spices, vanilla, citrus.  
  • Without naming a specific perfume or fragrance, what are your favorite perfume companies? Favorite home fragrance companies?  Don't have any.  
  • What form of perfume do you prefer (oil, alcohol-based, spray, open bottle, rollerball)? What form of home fragrance do you prefer (candle, diffuser, air freshener, plug-in)?  I like scented candles.  
  • Other than perfume/fragrance oils, what is your favorite type of toiletry/scented item?  Scented lotion.  
  • Scent(s)/notes(s) to avoid?  Floral scents irritate my allergies.  

 


And finally (at least for the beauty section), Yes/No?


  • Foils  Yes
  • Deluxe Samples  Yes
  • Hair Oil  No ( I have a bunch)
  • Face Oil  Yes, would be interested to try.
  • Perfume  No, it's just too hard to tell what I'll be allergic to with perfume.
  • Sunblock/Sunscreen  Yes
  • Self-tanner/tanning wipes  Only if it's a gradual tan lotion.  The wipes and sprays never seem to work out for me. 

 


And extra non-makeup-related questions!


  • What designs/designers do you prefer (please limit to top 3)  I love sleek clean looking clothes and 50's style dresses so:  Prada, Michael Kors, and Dolce and Gabbana.  
  • Is your box all about you? Or would you like to see things in your box for your significant other/spouse, kid(s), pet(s), whatever? If the latter, please list age/gender/species.  I have a small doggy named Josh (under 12 pounds) and am expecting my first baby in December.   :D   
  • If your fairy godparent curates an awesome set of items for you, would you rather they be wrapped individually, or be a huge smorgasbord that you can look at all at once? Would you prefer to open each gift slowly and methodically or will it be ribbons and bows and paper flying as you tear into it?  I love lots of little things to unwrap but I would love to see what my Fairy Godmother comes up with.  
  • It's a hot, sunny 90-degree summer day and you have no obligation to be anywhere in particular. Where are you and what are you doing?  I have my feet in a kiddie pool and am reading a book.  

 


And advanced fun stuff:


  • What do you do in your spare time? Are there any hobby-related items you would like?  In my spare time I love to read and craft.  I sew, knit, and crochet. 
  • Fandoms, favorite TV shows, movies, books, music, Hogwarts house, etc.  I am a Doctor Who fan and love PBS shows like Downton Abbey, Call the Midwife and Sherlock.  I love Harry Potter and am pretty sure I'd end up in Ravenclaw.  
  • What non-beauty item(s) would send you over the moon?  I would love something crafted or local!
  • Pirates or ninjas?  Definitely pirates.  Tall ships are freakin awesome!
  • Zombies: Yay or nay?  Zombies scare me, it's weird.  
  • Disney! Favorite movie, hero, villain?  I love Beauty and the Beast.  I love that Belle always has her face in a book.  I'm pretty sure she fell in love with the beast after seeing his library.   ;) 
  • Describe three things decorating your living space.  On the mantel there are a collection of Harpers Magazine books from the 1850's, a silver salver (mostly because I like to say those words), and a blue willow type teapot.  

Yes/no, the extras division:


  • Virtual gifts (ecerts/gift certs/eBooks)  I don't do e-books but anything else is welcome.  
  • Hand-made items (from your godparent or purchased)  Very welcome!
  • Candles  Yep.  
  • Tarts  I don't know how tarts got on here but heck yeah!  (I'm assuming we're talking about food?)
  • Reed Diffusers  No thanks.
  • Incense  No thanks
  • Other home fragrance (say, room spray or scented rocks)  No thanks.
  • Local Items  Yes please!
  • Mix CD  Sounds awesome!
  • Home Items (and what types)  Sure, I can't think of specific things but I love little decorative things and pictures.  
  • Food Items (and what types)  I love food, it's my favorite, lol.  Food is very welcome.  Especially because being pregnant makes me want to eat everything in sight!  
  • Beverages (and what types)  Not sure about actual liquids but I love tea, cocoa, and cider, even in summer.  
  • Puzzle Books -- words, numbers, pictures  Ooh, these sound fun!

I want to add that I am pretty much game for anything as long as you had fun putting it together.  I am easy to please and would love to discover your favorites!  I think the best part of all this is shopping for someone else so have fun!  Ready!  Set!  GO!
