Getting to know you... each and every one of you!

Recommended Posts

The first thing that came to mind with "moisturise me!" was running around with that spray bottle spraying Cassandra!

 

I'm so hesitant to list my love for B5 under fandoms because it's something that most people look at me and say "huh?" when I mention it. Why yes I am a B5 fangirl too.  :wub:

 

Bwhahaha! I LOVE Cassandra! Yes, I've referred to her in past posts I've made mention of "moisturize me".

 

I'm such a Star Trek and B5 fangirl that out of my six children three are named after either a Star Trek character or word. One actually is named after a Star Trek character AND a B5 character. And of course any Star Trek fan should recognize my username since it's part of the Betazoid word for "BELOVED" - IMZADI. One of my kids actually was named after a XMen character. Only two have "common" names since they were named after relatives but had I my way they would also have had sci-fi or fantasy names. I'm still irked with myself that I didn't name one of my sons Logan since I love Wolverine.

Nice! I'm the B5 dork who had to roll a specific class of a specific gender of racial character in Guild Wars 2 to see if a specific line was used for that gendered class. And sadly it isn't. The necromancers have a power when activated they say "I am Death Incarnate". Except the Norn female necros. (Can you see where this is going?)

 

Why? Claudia Christian voiced the player character voice cues for the Norn females. And, yes I did roll a female Norn necro to see if she used the "Death Incarnate" line, and she didn't. It's sad, but I know why that line was excluded. Now I have that entire speech stuck in my head, gaaaaaahhhhhhh!

    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? No allergies or sensitivities. Send me all the food!!!
    Skin allergies/sensitivities: Do you or anyone in your household have any skin allergies/sensitivities not already listed that your Sugar Plum Fairy should know about (e.g., wool, metals in jewelry, etc)? Do you avoid silicone, sulfates, etc? None :)

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!

Basic background information:
 

Style descriptions! Brief is better.

    Makeup I am wearing makeup daily now. Mostly I keep it pretty classic and professional for work but I LOVE to experiment on weekends!
    Hair My hair is incredibly thick and gets tangled really easily.  It is long, straight, and dirty blonde.
    Nails My greatest guilty pleasure! Always polished, always pretty, often glitter!
    Skincare (face/neck) I am still developing a skincare routine, by which I mean it is nonexistent.
    Bodycare (everywhere else) I like things that smell beautiful.  
    Home I try to keep it cozy. It's often cluttered/messy, not going to lie.

More advanced questions:

    Solve for X: I am wearing too much X, and I DO NOT CARE! Lip gloss.
    Cruelty-free or vegan. Important, must-have, nice, don't care? In all total honesty, I don't care.
    You just won a $50 gift card to your favorite beauty store. Which store is it, and what will you buy? Birchbox.  I have wanted the GlamNatural blush for AGES, so that and the Porefessional.
    Please list any subscription boxes you receive, along with anything you may covet from recent boxes. None currently! Actually,  I am pretty proud of myself about this! Oh wait that's a lie.  I still get the FCS one.
    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 feel very good about them!
    Assuming the same dollar amount is spent, would you prefer several mini items, or one or two full-sized items? Minis, but either is awesome.

Brand-and-color-specific time!

    What is your all-time favorite beauty item and why? The Porefessional because it really hides skin imperfections. Yes to cucumber Wipes.  Buxom Mascara.  Beauty Protector Spray. Seche vite top coat.
    What specific product(s) are you lusting after? Feel free to link to a wishlist with particulars! Like everyone I am head over heels for the Catssic Literatre collection from Hello Waffle.
    What make-up items do you use every day? Pretty much the ones listed above in the all time favorites section.  Also a lip scrub, a lippie of some kind, nail polish of some kind, Clinique Superpowder, and some eyeshadow.
    What are your holy grail items? Holy crap? Again, see the favorites section.  Also Tokyo Milk Femme Fatale Lip Elixers, Shiro eyeshadows and Tocca hand creams and Philosophy Flavored Lip Shines.
    What one item/product are you interested in, but just have't gotten around to trying? Really interested in How Bout them Apples

General product section, aka not brand/color specific

    What one product can you just not get enough of? Probably Lippies and also BATH PRODUCTS (sugar scrubs, soaps, body wash, bath bombs, anything...)
    What one product do you actually use more than any other? What runs out quickest in your make-up drawer? Porefessional and Yes to Wipes.
    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 I can think of.
    What items (makeup/skincare/tool) do you feel are missing from your routine? I'm not sure.
    What tools/products are you looking to add, even if they are not missing? I'm not sure.
    What beauty-related product(s) do you just not want to receive? I'm not sure.

Brands:

    What brand do you have more products from than any other? Any particular reason? Julep. Because I suck.
    What brand(s) have you been wanting to try but haven't gotten around to? Wei, Suki, The Balm,
    What brand(s) do you not want? None in particular.

Colors (not specific shades):

    Answer quick like a bunny! Favorite color? Pink.
    Favorite color combination? Purple and White or Black and gray and white.
    What one color (not brand/product specific) do you use more than any other? Why? Pink again?
    Color(s) to avoid? None really.

Scents

    What's your favorite perfume/wearable scent of all time? What's your favorite perfume/wearable scent to wear in the summer? I like Kai and Tocca.
    What is the fragrance of your favorite home fragrance (e.g., candle, diffuser)? Like the ocean!
    Describe your favorite scents/notes, without naming a specific perfume or fragrance. Vanilla, rose, lily of the valley, lilies cinnamon, spices in general, pumpkin, linen and other ‘clean’ scents.
    Without naming a specific perfume or fragrance, what are your favorite perfume companies? Favorite home fragrance companies? I don’t really know much about perfume companies but do love Tocca's scents and also Fortune Cookie Soap scents.  Bath and Body Works and Yankee Candle are my fave for home scents.
    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 but that's not a strong preference.  Candles.
    Other than perfume/fragrance oils, what is your favorite type of toiletry/scented item? Sugar scrubs! Bath Bombs!
    Scent(s)/notes(s) to avoid? Woodsy scents don't do it for me. Neither do most fruity scents.

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

    Foils Sure
    Deluxe Samples Sure
    Hair Oil Sure
    Face Oil No thank you
    Perfume Sure
    Sunblock/Sunscreen Sure
    Self-tanner/tanning wipes No thank you

And extra non-makeup-related questions!

    What designs/designers do you prefer (please limit to top 3) Romantic/vintage (like hearts, lace, toile, pearls, black and white etc.)  2. Polka dots. 3. Paris.  or Cats. or Fairy tales. I also love Mod Cloth in general.
    List any public wishlists (Amazon, etsy, Sephora), swap lists and/or Tumbler/Pinterest entries your Sugar Plum Fairy should consult. I guess see Elfster?
    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. If you remember my kitties, you will be my favorite person ever.  They are lovers of fancy feast, toys, and treats! My partner and I are long distance but he'll be with me these holidays. He is a typical guy. Actually to be honest I don't really care if you include anything for him or not.  If you do, food/candy marked with his name is probably safest.  He thinks anything is food, even bath bombs. 
    If your Sugar Plum Fairy 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? Either.
    It's a hot, sunny 90-degree summer cold winter day and you have no obligation to be anywhere in particular. Where are you and what are you doing? Reading by the fireplace ;)

And advanced fun stuff:

    What do you do in your spare time? Are there any hobby-related items you would like? I read a lot and I also knit, cross-stitch, play with my cats, write letters to my penpals, and go to barre class.
    Fandoms, favorite TV shows, movies, books, music, Hogwarts house, etc. Do Jane Austen and Oscar Wilde count as fandoms? I also love Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, Hunger Games (Gryffindor!), Divergent,The Blacklist, The Vampire Diaries, and Reign. Also Disney.
    What non-beauty item(s) would send you over the moon? BOOKS.
    Pirates or ninjas? Pirates.
    Zombies: Yay or nay? Nay.
    Disney! Favorite movie, hero, villain? FROZEN!! Belle, Ursula.
   
Yes/no, the extras division:

    Virtual gifts (ecerts/gift certs/eBooks) Okay!
    Hand-made items (from your godparent or purchased) Yes!!!
    Candles Yes!!!
    Tarts No thank you.
    Reed Diffusers No thank you.
    Incense Okay!
    Other home fragrance (say, room spray or scented rocks) No thank you.
    Local Items Yes!!!
    Mix CD Yes!!!
    Home Items (and what types) Anything cute or festive! We celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah! 
    Food Items (and what types) Any, we love food!
    Beverages (and what types) Is it okay to ask for Wine?
    Puzzle Books -- words, numbers, pictures No thank you. Unless it's for the boyfriend.  In that case yes and the harder the puzzles the better.

I'm totally cheating and using my Midsummer survey with seasonally-appropriate tweaks.

 

 

 

 Absolute must-answers:

  • ALLERGIES!! Please list any allergies to products, foods, scents, etc., that you or anyone living in your household has! -- Any scent with the word "white" in the description = instant headache.  
  • 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 beef, please.  I'm not vegetarian, but I can't eat it.  Cilantro is a migraine trigger.  Avocado = hives.  Steak fajitas with salsa and a side of guacamole?  My nightmare.
  • 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?  I don't avoid most things other people avoid like sulfates, silicones, paragons, etc, but I have to avoid avocado!  I get hives whether I eat it or put it on my skin.  Avocado oil seems to be okay as long as it's not on my face, but avocado masks?  No no no no no.  And bar soap!  It makes me itch like crazy.  Oh, and jewelry!  I can't wear earrings due to a weird unhealing thing my ears do.  And I can't handle short necklaces because they make me feel like I'm choking, and bracelets and rings just annoy me.

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 would be nice to know so I have something to look forward to if I'm having a crappy time at work (and so I know to rush home if it's a rainy day so I can rescue it from being drenched), but not a big deal if not!

 

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/132070-meaganolas-wishlist-for-all-seasons/

 

Basic background information:

Style descriptions! Brief is better.

  • Makeup -- I-get-up-at-5am-and-spend-ten-minutes-on-makeup makeup.  
  • Hair -- Wash/condition the night before, brush it out in the morning, and call it good.  No heat, no hold products.  Ever.  Style-wise, I seem to usually pull it up in a big hair clip nowadays, especially when it's warm or hot.  It's reaching the middle of my back since I haven't gotten a haircut in something like five months, and it's fine, thick, and this weird straight/wavy hybrid.  I don't even know how to describe it.  Just boring hair that I put up to keep myself from playing with it all day or getting annoyed with it when I'm working.  It's getting long enough to pull up into a twisty knot/bun thing, and that's what has been happening most days lately.
  • Nails -- Always polished or covered with nail wraps.  The weirder the better!
  • Skincare (face/neck) -- Low-maintenance due to skin sensitivity.  Cleanser, moisturizer/facial oil (depends on the weather and season), and that's it.  I try to remember to exfoliate once a week, but I don't usually succeed.  I'm trying to do weekly masks.  I rarely remember.
  • Bodycare (every where else) -- Shower gel or whipped soap to cleanse.  Bar soap makes me itch like crazy!  Body lotion, butter, oil to moisturize.  I love sugar scrubs (especially Haus of Gloi bubbling scrubs) for shaving my legs!
  • Home -- I have no style.  My living space is filled with crap my cats have decided to play with.  Edgar loves drinking straws in general and Starbucks straws in particular.  I don't why specifically Starbucks.  He has The Crazies.  It is best not to ask questions.

More advanced questions:

  • Solve for X: I am wearing too much X, and I DO NOT CARE! -- Colorful sparkly loose eyeshadow.
  • Cruelty-free or vegan. Important, must-have, nice, don't care? -- Nice but (I shouldn't admit this) I kind of stopped paying attention to this a while ago.
  • You just won a $50 gift card to your favorite beauty store. Which store is it, and what will you buy? -- It would be an indie company, and it would be a complete collection or two.  Right now, probably Notoriously Morbid's Lost in the Lodge and A Dark Christmas Dream collections.
  • Please list any subscription boxes you receive, along with anything you may covet from recent boxes. -- Hmm...  Birchbox, SquareHue, Glamour Doll Eyes, innocent+twisted alchemy (they're on hiatus until January), Rainbow Honey, Julep (usually skip, will probably continue to skip), Scratch (have skipped most months since I joined), Notoriously Morbid Vanishing Cabinet, and Hello Waffle Visage.  I think that's it until Espionage Cosmetics' Nerd Makeup box starts in April.  I love indie makeup subs!
  • 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?  Sure!
  • Assuming the same dollar amount is spent, would you prefer several mini items, or one or two full-sized items?  Minis!  I think the only full-sized products I have ever finished are cleansers, bb cream, lip balm, and Seche Vite.

 
Brand-and-color-specific time!

  • What is your all-time favorite beauty item and why?  Lip Smackers.  They were launched when I was, like, one year old, so I feel like we have grown up together.  
  • What specific product(s) are you lusting after? Feel free to link to a wishlist with particulars!  On my dream list!  (Non-forum lists are linked there as well.)
  • What make-up items do you use every day? -- Glamour Doll Eyes Foil Me.
  • What are your holy grail items? -- I never used foundation until I discovered Missha Perfect Cover BB cream, and that changed my makeup life!  Other than that, just generally loose indie pigments.  I would still be sticking to the same colors (and mainly purples) week after week if it wasn't for GDE's sub sending me on the course of "well, hey, they sent me bright yellow.  I might as well give it a shot!"  And now I wear pretty much *every* color except black.
  • Holy crap? -- I can't think of any.
  • What one item/product are you interested in, but just have't gotten around to trying? -- Hmm...  I can't really think of anything at the moment.

 
General product section, aka not brand/color specific

  • What one product can you just not get enough of? -- Indie loose pigments.  Love them.  Want to collect all of them!
  • What one product do you actually use more than any other? What runs out quickest in your make-up drawer? -- Aside from lip balm and speed-dry top coat (*love* Seche Vite and Sally Hansen Insta-Dry!), I would have to let you know if that ever happened.  (I've hit pan on *one* thing:  Maybelline Color Tattoo in Barely Branded.  I used it as base with everything last fall and winter, and now I can *just* see the bottom of the jar in one tiny spot.  I still have probably half of it left on the sides of the jar.)
  • 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)? -- Mascara because my eyes are too ticklish.  Liquid and gel pot eyeliner because my hands just don't want to cooperate.  And, yes, actually, foot scrubbers because my feet are too ticklish!  And anything pedicure-related.  That's something I leave to professionals.
  • What items (makeup/skincare/tool) do you feel are missing from your routine? -- A nice medium brown brow product.  I have good eyebrows, so I'm not looking to fill them out or make them bigger, but I'm Of An Age where they're starting to get lighter, and I want my nice strong brow color back!
  • What tools/products are you looking to add, even if they are not missing? -- Can't really think of anything.  I can always use another eyeshadow brush for loose pigments, though!
  • What beauty-related product(s) do you just not want to receive? -- Mascara, red lipstick, matte neutral anything, black eyeliner, alcohol-based fragrance, bronzer.

 
Brands:

  • What brand do you have more products from than any other? Any particular reason? -- Glamour Doll Eyes.  I love loose pigment, and I'm determined to collect every one of their shades.  I already have probably three-quarters of their catalog!
  • What brand(s) have you been wanting to try but haven't gotten around to? -- Pretty much any indie company other than GDE, Geek Chic Cosmetics (I have a few collections from them), Nororiously Morbid, and Espionage Cosmetics (I only buy this line at cons!).
  • What brand(s) do you not want? -- Hard Candy, any of the ipsy bomb brands.

 
Colors (not specific shades):

  • Answer quick like a bunny! Favorite color?  Glitter.  It's the new black.
  • Favorite color combination?  Green and purple.  Or cobalt and lime.  Or fuchsia and tangerine.  Or brown and green.  It changes frequently!
  • Color scheme of your home/room, either in reality or your imagination -- I tend to go mainly for shades of green since my carpet and walls are brown because green + brown = forest.  And that way, I can use little bursts of color like a bright red Helmer to represent a flowering plant, just like the forests around here!
  • What one color (not brand/product specific) do you use more than any other? Why? -- No such thing!  I'm all over the place with color.
  • Color(s) to avoid? -- Black (if we're talking about eyeliner), red (lipstick and nail polish), neutrals, nudes, traditional nail polish colors in general.  Just general color anywhere:  Orange and yellow.  They make me angry.  I don't know why.  They're okay for eyeshadow for some reason, though.

 
Scents

  • What's your favorite perfume/wearable scent of all time? What's your favorite perfume/wearable scent to wear in the winter? -- I don't really have an all-time favorite.  Maybe Shalimar because my mom wore it, but for myself, none.  I change scents frequently, and I go through phases where I wear one scent every single day for a few months, and then I suddenly change to something radically different.  Between Halloween and Christmas, I tend to wear Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Yule oils from years past, especially Noche Buena.
  • What is the fragrance of your favorite home fragrance (e.g., candle, diffuser)? -- Hmm...  I don't really have one.  I like evocative home fragrance that makes me feel like I'm in a fortune teller's tent at a traveling carnival with tons of spicy resiny goodness everywhere.  Or a Storyville reception room.  Or an ancestral Sasquatch family manor.  Or a cemetery for Dia de los Muertos.
  • Describe your favorite scents/notes, without naming a specific perfume or fragrance. -- resiny, spicy, incense-y.  Head shop sorts of stuff.  I think the official fragrance profiles would be oriental and floriental.  On occasion, I like jasmine.  I love citrus stuff for the shower, but perfume-wise, I'm on a resin/spice/musk/sandalwood kick right now.
  • Without naming a specific perfume or fragrance, what are your favorite perfume companies? Favorite home fragrance companies? -- Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab for perfume.  Black Phoenix Trading Post for home.
  • What form of perfume do you prefer (oil, alcohol-based, spray, open bottle, rollerball)?  Oil, which I will put in a rollerball if it's not in one already.  Alcohol-based and I typically do *not* get along.  Sadly, most fragrance out there is alcohol-based nowadays, even rollerballs.
  • What form of home fragrance do you prefer (candle, diffuser, air freshener, plug-in)?  Spray.  Incense (cone or stick) is fantastic, too.
  • Other than perfume/fragrance oils, what is your favorite type of toiletry/scented item?  Body oil/butter/lotion.  It's a tie!
  • Scent(s)/notes(s) to avoid? -- Anything with "white" in the description.  Also:  vetiver, banana, berry.

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

  • Foils -- yes
  • Deluxe Samples -- yes
  • Hair Oil -- yes
  • Face Oil -- yes
  • Perfume -- yes, if it's oil-based
  • Sunblock/Sunscreen -- no
  • Self-tanner/tanning wipes -- no

 
And extra non-makeup-related questions!

  • What designs/designers do you prefer (please limit to top 3) -- Uh…  Art Nouveau.  Paisley.  Pop art (especially Keith Haring).  I don't think I can name even one designer.
  • List any public wishlists (Amazon, etsy, Sephora), swap lists and/or Tumbler/Pinterest entries your fairy godparent should consult.  They're on my dreamlist!
  • 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 two three-year-old kitties.  They have *all* of the crazies.  They make toys out of random household things like boxes (they *love* boxes!) and soda straws.
  • 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? All options are awesome!  Decisions are hard!

And advanced fun stuff:

  • What do you do in your spare time? Are there any hobby-related items you would like? -- Makeup and fandom are pretty much it.
  • Fandoms, favorite TV shows, movies, books, music, Hogwarts house, etc. -- Twin Peaks (in retrospect, my first fannish obsession, but this was before I knew about fandom), Welcome to Night Vale, The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad (it's not over in my heart!), Supernatural, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Stargate SG1, Stargate Atlantis, Game of Thrones, True Blood (well, okay, mainly the first two or three seasons before the show runners LOST THEIR COLLECTIVE MIND), Teen Wolf (I'm a season behind!), The Blacklist, Marvel's Agents of SHIELD, Grimm, comic book movies and horror movies in general.  I love everything Alice in Wonderland except the Burton film (my earliest memory is of reading the book) and _Once Upon a Time in Wonderland_ (it just didn't grab me).  I plan on diving into Star Trek TOS (I've only ever seen *one* episode!) and finally finishing Firefly (so sad!  Once I'm done with it, that's it!) eventually  The first fandom I actively participated in was Buffy!  I miss that show.  Hogwarts house:  Ravenclaw.  I would self-select, and Pottermore agrees with me.  
  • What non-beauty item(s) would send you over the moon? -- tacky touristy crap like floaty pens or snow globes, robot magnet, anything in one of my fandoms!
  • Pirates or ninjas? -- Pirates.  My city has a very strong history with pirates.  Shanghai Tunnels, baby!
  • Zombies: Yay or nay? -- Yay!  _Night of the Living Dead_ was the first real horror movie I was allowed to watch.  It stuck with me.  I wanted to do horror movie makeup after I read about how they did it!
  • Disney! Favorite movie, hero, villain?  -- I'm actually not big on *Disney*, but they do own the Marvel Avengers, so... _The Avengers_ (since there isn't an Incredible Hulk movie yet), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo!), and Loki (because Loki).
  • Describe three things decorating your living space. -- IKEA Helmers (one red, one gray), IKEA four-square cube (black), IKEA side tables (green).  I'm not really a decorator.

Yes/no, the extras division:

  • Virtual gifts (ecerts/gift certs/eBooks) -- Sure!
  • Hand-made items (from your godparent or purchased) -- Absolutely!
  • Candles -- No, thanks!  Kitty faces + candles = what's that burning smell?
  • Tarts -- I just received a PartyLite wax warmer, so this would be fantastic.
  • Reed Diffusers -- No, thank you!  These would end up being kitty chew toys.  And ruining my rug.
  • Incense -- Ooh, yes!  
  • Other home fragrance (say, room spray or scented rocks) -- Room spray!  
  • Local Items -- Yes yes yes.
  • Mix CD -- Absolutely!
  • Home Items (and what types) -- I'm going to go with no on this one.  I don't have a clue about this stuff!
  • Food Items (and what types) -- Ooh, yes.  I'm big on savory and salty things, and sweet-salty, like chocolate-covered pretzels.  And salted caramels?  Love.  And sesame sticks and dried cherries, which I guess is actually a savory-sweet combo.  Pretty much anything with a contrast that does not involve spicy, I guess!  Also pretty much any holiday Trader Joe's stuff.  Those butter cookies with caramel and chocolate?  Pfefferneusse?  Almond snowmen cookies?  This is my danger season.
  • Beverages (and what types) -- I love fruity teas, like Harney & Sons Paris, Twinings four red fruits (can't remember the real name), and pretty much any variation on Earl Gray, but I prefer decaf whenever possible because then I can drink it all day and all night!  Also, since it's hot drink weather:  Cocoa, cider, and coffee are all fantastic, but I prefer sugar free.  And I've realized I'm on a serious roobios kick, but flavored roobios, like vanilla, chai spice, peppermint mocha, etc.
  • Puzzle Books:  words, numbers, pictures -- I'm actually a fan of crossword puzzles, but not super hard ones.

    Skin allergies/sensitivities: Do you or anyone in your household have any skin allergies/sensitivities not already listed that your Sugar Plum Fairy should know about (e.g., wool, metals in jewelry, etc)? Do you avoid silicone, sulfates, etc?
Nope.
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 like a heads up to know that it is on the way :)

 

Style descriptions! Brief is better.

    Makeup - For eyes usually more neutral/nude colors.  I love pinks/browns but wear a variety of eyeshadow colors.  I like all types of lip products and wear bold and neutral lips.  I usually wear tinted balm to work.  I love blush.  Don't wear foundation.  
    Hair - Very basic care.  I use shampoo and conditioner/occasional hair mask.  Hair oil.  I let my hair air dry and occasional heat style it.  My hair is brown with blonde highlights.
    Nails - I manicure my nails regularly.  I paint them usually once every week or two.  I like most colors except for reds and very dark colors.
    Skincare (face/neck) What's really to say?  I moisturize 2x daily and use eye cream.  
    Bodycare (every where else) - Love body wash and body lotion.  
    Home - I like home products.  I enjoy candles and random home stuff.

More advanced questions:

    Solve for X: I am wearing too much X, and I DO NOT CARE! Hand cream.  Ugh my hands are so swollen, dry and cracked right now from being dry.
    Cruelty-free or vegan. Important, must-have, nice, don't care? - Nice but doesn't limit what I purchase.
    You just won a $50 gift card to your favorite beauty store. Which store is it, and what will you buy? - I would use it at Sephora.  I think I would buy a few makeup brushes.
    Please list any subscription boxes you receive, along with anything you may covet from recent boxes. Birchbox - was getting two now going down to one.  Graze.
    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? - Okay

    Assuming the same dollar amount is spent, would you prefer several mini items, or one or two full-sized items? - Either way is okay with me but I do love minis :)

Brand-and-color-specific time!

    What is your all-time favorite beauty item and why?  :blink:  Why is this question so hard!  I don't know about all time but my current favorite beauty item is my Guerlain Meteorites Perles d'Etoiles :wub:  

    What specific product(s) are you lusting after? Feel free to link to a wishlist with particulars!  See Elfster.  I might make a little general list over the upcoming weekend and out it in my signature or somewhere on Elfster.
    What are your holy grail items? Holy crap? HG item would be Fresh lip balms.  I love them.  I've been dying to get the colors tulip and petal next.  Other HG items would be Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Shampoo, Conditioner, and Oil UD Revolution Lipsticks and 24/7 liners.  I also love Lush's bath bombs.

    What one product can you just not get enough of? Hand cream
    What one product do you actually use more than any other? What runs out quickest in your make-up drawer? - Don't typically have things running out  :P   I always use lip balm and my Anastasia clear brow gel before running out of the house.
    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 don't wear foundation so nothing related to that like primers (don't wear them either).  Don't really wear BB cream/CC creams either - well I do but only a few times every few months.

    What is the fragrance of your favorite home fragrance (e.g., candle, diffuser)? Don't have a favorite.  I just don't like things that smelled like foods or baked goods.
    Describe your favorite scents/notes, without naming a specific perfume or fragrance. I like floral scents.  I love lavender, vanilla, honey, sandalwood, patchouli, black tea, green tea, and almond.  
    Without naming a specific perfume or fragrance, what are your favorite perfume companies? Favorite home fragrance companies? Atelier, Versace, Haus of Gloi.
    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've been loving indie oils lately.  I like alcohol based perfumes as well - that's what makes up the majority of my collection.  Any form is fine.  For home fragrances, I prefer candles.

ALLERGIES!! - NONE

 

Dietary restrictions / sensitivities: NONE

 

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? Heads up please :)

 

Basic background information:

 

 

Makeup - Depends on my mood and season. I love neutrals but now that it's the fall I've been loving pinks and plum smokey eyes.

Hair - Black, very voluminous, and naturally wavy. I tend to keep it blown out and straight most of the time. I joke with my salon stylist that our Brazilians are a must for me because the humidity will have my hair looking like Christmas tree. lol

Nails - Anything but neon. I'm just not bold enough to rock it. Love glitter.

Skincare (face/neck) - Combination/Oily, acne prone skin. I had it great in my teens, clear skin. As soon as I got pregnant with my daughter, my hormones got all out of whack. 5 years later and still a problem.

Bodycare (every where else) - Body Balms and Sugar Scrubs- Love. Lulublossoms dreamscicle body balm is heaven. I have a small stockpile of it from when they put up sales/coupon codes #noshame

Home I met my husband in college and since we both love our Alma Mater, I joke around that if anyone came to our house who weren't Aggies they would think we have an unhealthy amount of Texas A&M stuff. Seriously, it's everywhere. Then again, maroon and white is such an amazing combo, how could it not go with everything.

ALLERGIES!! Macadamia nuts/oils, latex, strong floral fragrances

    Dietary restrictions: Yes, many...please no food items (homemade jam or something like that would be ok though - but that's all I can think of that would be ok to receive...

    Skin allergies/sensitivities: I can't wear Too Faced lash primers or mascara - something in the formula irritates my eyes, and Ole Henriksen's lemon peel RUINED my face for a week!

 

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? Complete surprise!

 

The nuts and bolts:

I play around a lot with colors, but mostly variations of the same base colors. Eyes are all about browns, purples and plums...cheeks are mauve/plum/berry...nude or mauve lips. I'm not into nails much...no patience!  I'm picky about my hair...not very adventurous with my hair either.  I've been playing around with various brighteners and illuminators for foundation substitutes, it's been super fun to work with the different textures and effects and all the ways you can get your face to glow! (or try anyway!)

 

Skincare:  Face and neck are Algenist mostly, but I use Origins in the shower (checks and balances and modern friction).  Bodycare:  I love scrubs and the BEST cream for dry skin is gene's Vitamin E Creme.  It's like $8 at Sam's Club for 16 oz and is super moisturizing!

 

Problem areas:  Dark circles, deep wrinkles - I am obsessed with getting rid of my deep lip wrinkles!  I wear too much sparkly glittery face and body powders, and I DO NOT CARE!  Ok I do, but not enough to stop me!

 

Cruelty-free or vegan. I'm learning about this aspect, but it's slow and I'm embarrassed to say it hasn't been a priority, and it probably should be.

 

You just won a $50 gift card to your favorite beauty store. Which store is it, and what will you buy? Ulta (for the points), and I'd finish my Stila palette collection, and get Mind.

 

Subscription boxes I receive: e.l.f.; Glossybox, Birchbox, Allure, Walmart, Ipsy, and I think one more I can't remember.

One of my boxes had a Borghese brightening primer or moisturizer and I LOVE IT!!  They were out of it the other day when I checked on the borghese website!  :blink:

Assuming they are separately packaged and clearly labeled, what are your feelings on prepared-by-sender beauty items? Sure, just not food or heavily scented items, please.

 

Unsealed samples? Depends - if the sender is the one that opened it to swatch or something like that - no problem.  Otherwise, no thank you.  Items from the bulk foods section?   No food, please.

 

Assuming the same dollar amount is spent, would you prefer several mini items, or one or two full-sized items? I have zero preference here.  I'm just happy I get to participate!  

 

What is your all-time favorite beauty item and why?  My current favorite is stila's soul palette.  I love the colors and they blend really well!   But I haven't been at this long enough to have an 'all time favorite' LOL although I did buy 14 of my favorite lipsticks when I found out L'Oreal discontinued my color.  Mystic Mauve #625.  It is still my go-to-no-fail lipstick! 

 

What specific product(s) are you lusting after?  Hmmm...maybe the perfect foundation?  I have settled for the time being, but I will have my perfect foundation one day.  And it will look fabulous!  Air brushed!  Flawless!  

What make-up items do you use every day?   I use it all everyday and twice on Sunday!  LOL!  Ok sometimes twice during other days too.  I LOVE playing around with my stuff!

 

What are your holy grail items? Oh so serious!  Umm...probably my skin care routine.

Holy crap?  Becca primer.  WTF???

 

What one item/product are you interested in, but just have't gotten around to trying? Probably the Guerlien meteorites.  I didn't pull the trigger on the holiday ones I wanted, so my flame for it kind of flickered...but I'd still love to try them! 

 

What one product can you just not get enough of? Eye shadow palettes!!

What one product do you actually use more than any other? Eye shadow palettes!

What runs out quickest in your make-up drawer?  Base eye shadow colors, the lighter ones.

What product(s) can you absolutely not use at all for reasons other than allergies/sensitivities listed in the background section? Hairspray, mousse, gel for hair.  I don't like any of that in my hair.

What items (makeup/skincare/tool) do you feel are missing from your routine?   Good grief you mean I'm missing something???  LOL!  Concealer, definitely.  I don't know how to use any without making my wrinkles look more severe, so I don't use it right now. 

What tools/products are you looking to add, even if they are not missing?   I might try to use a beauty blender, but not going out of my way to get one since I mostly use my hands to apply anything wet.

What beauty-related product(s) do you just not want to receive? Face cleansing oils, lip gloss

Brands: Not that big on benefit.

What brand do you have more products from than any other? Tarte Any particular reason? It's the brand that started it all...

What brand(s) have you been wanting to try but haven't gotten around to?   Makeup Forever, Laura Mercier

What brand(s) do you not want? benefit

Colors not wanted:  peach, apricot, or pale pink on cheeks is NOT for me! Eye shadow in green, blue, yellow - not for me.  Lippies in anything but nude or berry/mauve not for me. Lip colors change on me so it is hard to get some that truly look good, IMO.

 

Answer quick like a bunny! Favorite color?  lavender ice   Favorite color combination?  purples and browns    Color scheme of your home/room, either in reality or your imagination:  Neutrals - cream, coffee, tan.

What one color (not brand/product specific) do you use more than any other? deep purple colors - various ones just really dark purples. Why?  I use purple shadows as eye liner.

Color(s) to avoid? Blue, green, orange, yellow, coral

Scents:  Love Sung (my winter go to) and L'Occitane Neroli Orchidee (my new summer favorite!)

What's your favorite perfume/wearable scent of all time? Tiffany 

What is the fragrance of your favorite home fragrance (e.g., candle, diffuser)?  Neroli Orchidee candle from L'Occitane

Describe your favorite scents/notes, without naming a specific perfume or fragrance.  I like fruity, light floral and sprays or lotions but not body wash or soap or powder or oil. Love rollerballs.

Yes/No?     Foils YES!  LOVE FOILS! Deluxe Samples   Yes  Hair Oil Sure   Face Oil  No, thank you   Perfume Yes  Sunblock/Sunscreen  No, thank you.   Self-tanner/tanning wipes No, thank you.

 

And extra non-makeup-related questions!     What designs/designers do you prefer (please limit to top 3)   Ummm...I don't know.  List any public wishlists (Amazon, etsy, Sephora), swap lists and/or Tumbler/Pinterest entries your Sugar Plum Fairy should consult.  Just what is on elfster (and I'm still working on it, I'm seriously tech challenged...no matter how easy it may be I'll find a way to make it hard!)

Is your box all about you? Yes

If your Sugar Plum Fairy 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 have no preference and I open slowly, always.  I just enjoy the whole thing and really cherish everything I open!

 

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?  Working out by swimming - which pulls double duty to get some color on my pale skin!  Reading or listening to music at the pool during breaks. 

And advanced fun stuff: ??? like sex? LOL!!  Not sure what you mean!

What do you do in your spare time? Shop for, talk about, or apply and reapply makeup! LOL! 

Are there any hobby-related items you would like?  Really??  LOL!  ALWAYS!  

Fandoms, favorite TV shows: Da Vinci's Demons, Outlander (Starz originals). Movies:  Star Wars (books III, IV, and V), Armageddon, National Treasure (both), Tomb Raider (first one). Books: Harry Potter series, Outlander series, The Australians series, Jeffrey Deaver books, Steve Barry books, Dan Brown books. Music:  System of a Down, Jeremiah, Ed Sheeran, Jason Derulo, Flo-Rida, Pit Bull, Maroon 5, Styx, Def Leppard, Dream Evil, Y&T, Fall Out Boy.

What non-beauty item(s) would send you over the moon?  The latest Now! That's What I call Music! CD.  Fall Out Boy CD.  I don't have any of FOB...that'd be cool.  I think the NOW CD;s are at like 52 or 53.  The last one I have is 50.  Pirates or ninjas?  For secret love affair? Or to be??  To be...Ninja!  Secret love affair...A clean pirate!  Zombies: Yay or nay? Nay    Disney! Favorite movie, hero, villain?   Movie is Cinderella, heroine is Mulan, and villain is Ursula.

Describe three things decorating your living space. A large floor vase with fake branches that light up, my sectional with a chaise (chaise was a must!) and my hutch that is currently housing 90% of my makeup collection!

Yes/no, the extras division:     Virtual gifts (ecerts/gift certs/eBooks) Yes but I don't have a way to read ebooks unless someone tells me how.   Hand-made items (from your godparent or purchased)  Yes    Candles  Yes   Tarts  No, thank you   Reed Diffusers  No, thank you   Incense   No, thank you  Other home fragrance (say, room spray or scented rocks)  No, thank you

    Other than perfume/fragrance oils, what is your favorite type of toiletry/scented item?
    Scent(s)/notes(s) to avoid?

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

    Foils
    Deluxe Samples
    Hair Oil
    Face Oil
    Perfume
    Sunblock/Sunscreen
    Self-tanner/tanning wipes

And extra non-makeup-related questions!

    What designs/designers do you prefer (please limit to top 3)
    List any public wishlists (Amazon, etsy, Sephora), swap lists and/or Tumbler/Pinterest entries your Sugar Plum Fairy should consult.
    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.
    If your Sugar Plum Fairy 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?
    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?

And advanced fun stuff:

    What do you do in your spare time? Are there any hobby-related items you would like?
    Fandoms, favorite TV shows, movies, books, music, Hogwarts house, etc.
    What non-beauty item(s) would send you over the moon?
    Pirates or ninjas?
    Zombies: Yay or nay?
    Disney! Favorite movie, hero, villain?
    Describe three things decorating your living space.

Yes/no, the extras division:

    Virtual gifts (ecerts/gift certs/eBooks)
    Hand-made items (from your godparent or purchased)
    Candles
    Tarts
    Reed Diffusers

    Other home fragrance (say, room spray or scented rocks)

    • Hi guys, we are introducing a new product line of our brand and we think to promote it to our existing customers through newsletters.
