Getting to know YOU!!

Hey Living Dead girls,

This entry is ALL about YOU!

In the last few days, thanks to the lovely and talented Evil Angel I've received quite a few hits on my blog, as well as some new Zombie Lovers. I'm amazed at how BIG the makeup/nail/cosmetic community is. Never did I realize that just by starting my little "I like this because I'm a makeup whore blog" would create a whole new world for me. It's so exciting! So, I want to get to know you all! I want to see what makes you tick, what ticks you off, etc. etc. So, if you'd please answer the questions below, I'd appreciate it! You all rock and (cheese alert) I thank you for being a "Zombie whore!" Said to the tune of the Golden Girls theme song.

1.) How'd you find Makeup Zombie? Feel free to include links to other blogs (I'm sharing the love!)

2.) Do you have a blog too? What's the link?

3.) Favorite brand (s) of makeup? Favorite colors?

4.) Favorite mascara? I really need to know cause I can't find a good one!

5.) One makeup product you recommend to everyone you can't live without?

6.) What's your every day makeup style?

7.) What is your biggest makeup pet peeve?

8.) What's a good moisturizer? I'm stumped on this one!

9.) Is there anything you'd like to see reviewed on the blog? Suggestions? Comments?

10.) Anything else you feel is necessary to share?

Have a beautiful day Zombies!

Just a random something to make you laugh..

  1. Great idea!

    1. Found you via the Orglamix Facebook page

    2. No blog - I leave that up to people who know stuff. : )

    3. My favorite makeup brand is Mixology. I also like Bare Escentuals and I am really looking forward to trying Aromaleigh. My favorite Mixology colors are U Minx, Apocalypse, Shiner, Surfer, Violet Mirage, and Sidekick. My favorite Mixology foundation is Porcelain Girl and fave cheek color is Ingenue.

    4. Fave mascara, hands down, is Bare Escentuals Flawless lash

    5. I tell everyone to try the Mixology Paste eye primer. Love it!

    6. I don't have an everyday style per say, but lately I have been into color, color and more color on the eyes. Blues, pinks, purples, greens.

    7. My biggest makeup pet peeve? Getting mascara on my freshly shadowed eyelids. What a pain to fix!

    8. I use Angel Face Botanicals' Chamomile Exquisite Creme on my face at night.

    9. Still waiting on that Mixology review ; )

    10. So glad to have found your blog and keep up the awesome job!

  2. 1.) How'd you find Makeup Zombie? Feel free to include links to other blogs (I'm sharing the love!)

    Evil Angel :)

    2.) Do you have a blog too? What's the link?

    Yes ;D http://silhouettescreams.blogspot.com

    3.) Favorite brand (s) of makeup? Favorite colors?

    Hmm, I can't pick just one
    - Urban Decay for eye primer and eyeliners
    - NYX for their jumbo pencils which I use as bases, lipglosses and lipsticks
    - Silk Naturals for their neutral shadows
    - MAC for their neutral shadows + lipsticks
    - Whoever that generic Chinese company is for their awesome palettes (like the 88 one)

    4.) Favorite mascara? I really need to know cause I can't find a good one!

    Ugh Im terrible to ask about this because I have the worst lashes in existence. Covergirl Lash Blast WP worked for me though, and I want to try the non-WP version sometime.

    5.) One makeup product you recommend to everyone you can't live without?

    Urban Decay Primer Potion! I honestly cannot wear eyeshadow without it, because I'll have creasing in 10 minutes. TEN MINUTES.

    6.) What's your every day makeup style?

    Gold with some random colour in the crease. Or brights! I used to be a neutrals girl but since I started experimenting with brights I havent looked back :)

    7.) What is your biggest makeup pet peeve?

    Apart from the obvious orange foundation and not blending it into the neckline, probably overdoing it on the blush/bronzer, not blending eyeshadows, thinking eye makeup is just a lid colour, splotchy top liner application, etc.

    I could go on forever, and god knows I do some of those too ;]

    8.) What's a good moisturizer? I'm stumped on this one!

    Pass. I've never found a really good one, Im just using some Clean & Clear one at the moment. It does the job but I'm not like ZOMGHGSTATUS!!!

    9.) Is there anything you'd like to see reviewed on the blog? Suggestions? Comments?

    Just some indie MMU companies :)

    10.) Anything else you feel is necessary to share?

    I like my zombies slow moving ;D fast moving ones freak me the fuck out.

  3. 1.) How'd you find Makeup Zombie? Feel free to include links to other blogs (I'm sharing the love!)

    I think from Evil's blog, but I can't remember 100%.

    2.) Do you have a blog too? What's the link?

    http://rolandsdottir.blogspot.com/ (contains an epic amount of bitching and some profanity!)

    3.) Favorite brand (s) of makeup? Favorite colors?

    MAC, E.L.F., Cover Girl(the powders), Wet 'n' Wild(laugh if you will- they've got some really good stuff now!), Kat Von D, Sephora house brand, and Bonne Bell. I like anything purple, silver, burgundy, or otherwise oddly-colored. I love blue lip stuff too, I automatically buy anything blue & lip-oriented.

    4.) Favorite mascara? I really need to know cause I can't find a good one!

    I'm afraid I can't really help you here- I tend to but a different brand every time I finish a tube. Right now I'm using this wierd Physician's Formula dual-ended colored mascara. I'm not crazy about the black end(the brush is too damn big), but the purple end is getting a lot of use. If pressed though, I'd have to say my absolute fave is probably Lancome Definicils.

    5.) One makeup product you recommend to everyone you can't live without?

    Oh gosh, I don't know. Does carmex count? I can't live without that. Or maybe CG clean powder? Call me crazy but I love that Noxzema smell.

    6.) What's your every day makeup style?

    Dark eyes, pale lips, metric ton of mascara.

    7.) What is your biggest makeup pet peeve?

    "Non-comedogenic" products that contain isopropyl myristate or other skin-napalm ingredients. And when companies fix what isn't broken- Like when they reformulate products and they end up being craptastic. I have had many, many favorite products be ruined because some company got bored & reformulated them into something unusable. Or when they discontinue the products I love. I also hate bronzer & overdone blush too. Who the hell looks in the mirror & thinks orange skin & bright red cheeks actually look good?

    8.) What's a good moisturizer? I'm stumped on this one!

    I have dry yet acne-prone skin & I use a combo of Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturizer & Avalon Organics Lavender Ultimate Moisture cream. Its really oily but my skin dries out like old leather if I don't grease it up properly. And the C&C is something I've used since 1995 & it's really good for mild acne without being drying. I use that as a day cream too.

    9.) Is there anything you'd like to see reviewed on the blog? Suggestions? Comments?

    Maybe nail polish?

    10.) Anything else you feel is necessary to share?

    Nope :)

  4. 1.) I think I found this through Evil Angel. I'm not 100% sure but I think so. I just sometimes randomly check what blogs other follow and sometimes find interesting blogs like this one :D

    2.) Yeah I have one. http://oneofbeautysdaughters.blogspot.com/

    3.) I use a lot of black, greys, greens and browns for work. And if I'd have to go with one shade it would be grey since it varies from light to almost black and since the metalhead I am I prefer dark colours :D Atm I'm in love with Meow Cosmetics eyeshadows and Urban Decay.

    4.) I have two mascaras I mainly use: Maybelline's Colossal Volum' Express 100% Black and Gosh Extreme 2Step Mascara.

    5.) Hmm... would have to be Urban Decay Primer Potion.

    6.) Conservative mostly. Thanks to working in a bank.

    7.) So many: wrong coloured (mostly orange) foundation, chunky mascara (spider-legs), too much and badly used white kohl... Should stop or I write a long list.

    8.) I use Oriflame Optimal Balance Mattifying Fluid and Nuxe Aroma-Perfection Anti-Shine fluid. Both are good enough for me since I don't thicker or more moisturising lotion. I just need the shine to be controlled.

    9.) Atm can't think of anything, I just love to see what kind of make up people wear daily and what they like in general.

    10.) Love to read about zombies in a beauty blog ;)

  5. Good idea!

    1. Came here from the one and only, Evil angel.
    2. Just started a makeup/beauty blog at http://rugby-beauty.blogspot.com
    3. I'm not that picky. However, I do have tons of Make up store's eyeshadows and turquoise or pea-green would probably be my favorite.
    4. I am still looking for it!
    5. None. However, right now I am embaressly (it's Jessica Simpson after all..)hooked on Dessert beauty's Sweet cheeks in Juicy. I use it on my cheeks, lips and eyes.
    6. Foundation, concealer and mascara - the basics. Everything else changes from day to day but there's usually a lot of black involved.
    7. Foundation that's orange. Too much bronzer. People that end up looking like they're on the grill.
    8. I fell in love with Stem organics Face Fluids. They're darn expensive (I won mine) but I haven't tried anything like it. Smells lovely as well.
    9. Items that aren't just released. Things that aren't trendy. Sometimes beautylogs seem to only focus on what's being sent to them for free and they forget about everything else.
    And oh yeah, the indie brands!
    10. I like your approach and your blogname. It's different and not cutesy cute.

  6. 1.) How'd you find Makeup Zombie? Feel free to include links to other blogs (I'm sharing the love!) I found MZ because you MADE me! LOL Really, though - I love the blog!

    2.) Do you have a blog too? What's the link? Contemplating creating a blog, but I don't know if I have the energy to keep up with it.

    3.) Favorite brand (s) of makeup? Favorite colors? Orglamix (shhhhh Wendi!) - fave colors are slate and chocolate frosting (though not together)

    4.) Favorite mascara? Avon Supershock mascara in black

    5.) One makeup product you recommend to everyone you can't live without? Urban Decay primer potion

    6.) What's your every day makeup style? Reserved

    7.) What is your biggest makeup pet peeve? Not being able to find just the right color foundation.

    8.) What's a good moisturizer? Avon Anew Rejuvenate Day cream with SPF 25 for day and Avon Nutura Replenishing Cream for night. I know it's Avon, but it's the best I've found.

    9.) Is there anything you'd like to see reviewed on the blog? Suggestions? Comments? I love all the stuff you've reviewed and you've created an addict by proxy. LOL No suggestions - just keep up the good work!!

    10.) Anything else you feel is necessary to share? Thank you for bringing some color to my life! :) (Even if the hubs doesn't always notice)

  7. 1.) I found you through Evil Angel :)

    2.) I do, www.lillianfunnyface.blogspot.com

    3.) My favourite brands of makeup are Illamasqua, Barry M, Collection 2000, Sleek, Fyrinnae, OCC and i'm sure there are more!

    4.) My favourite mascara is Lancome Oscillation which vibrates and gives me the longest most seperated lashes ever!

    5.) Bright pillar box red lipstick, my favourites are Mac Kanga Rouge and OCC lip tar in NSFW. It just makes me feel instantly glamourous.

    6.) My usual style is a bright lipstick, usually pink or red, with some black eyeliner and mascara and pink blush.

    7.) I really don't have one, except when my hair sticks to my lip gloss. ugh.

    8.)I love Avons solutions maximum moisture.

    9.) Nope, like your blog.

    10.) I think you're charming :)

  8. 1.) How'd you find Makeup Zombie? Feel free to include links to other blogs (I'm sharing the love!)

    I was surfing... Visiting Cheri from Orglamix's page... And I saw your profile pic and thought you had FABULOUS makeup. Then I noticed you had a blog... And here I am!

    2.) Do you have a blog too? What's the link?

    I have a few... Personal one is http://the-snarky-princess.blogspot.com for just blabbering about my life and things.
    My jewelry blog is http://aereonyxdesigns.blogspot.com

    3.) Favorite brand (s) of makeup? Favorite colors?

    Orglamix. Orglamix. Orglamix! Can you tell what I'm a fan of? I've pretty much gone 100% mineral makeup- makes my skin break out so much more infrequently! And Natural Organics for foundation- I have such a light skin tone, it's nearly impossible to find one that isn't too yellow or red... And they have the best combination, as well as not having any additives! Only exceptions would be black eyeliner (rimmel), lipstick (revlon colorstay) and mascara ( l'oreal- the gold tube! )

    Colors:
    Lipstick- nude, peachy-pink, or BRIGHT red. Red is instant sexy!
    Eyes- ALL colors of the rainbow! It's easy to wear what I want with my eyes!
    Blush- peach/natural
    Mascara- Black, but I like to go for the blue or purple every so often too ;)

    4.) Favorite mascara? I really need to know cause I can't find a good one!

    L'Oreal in the gold tube. I don't remember, I think it's it thickening kind... I don't need the lengthening, so all you gals can say you hate me now because I have killer lashes and never needed to use an eyelash curler XD

    5.) One makeup product you recommend to everyone you can't live without?

    Urban Decay Primer Potion. But I can't pick just ONE thing, because the primer is just the beginning... You need fabulous colors to wear with it too ;) And witch hazel- it's AWESOME for clearing up breakouts and getting rid of the red fast!

    6.) What's your every day makeup style?

    It varies from day to day... Sometimes simple, one sweep of color and eyeliner... And other days I blend multi tones together...

    7.) What is your biggest makeup pet peeve?

    Not finding a good foundation shade. I've got odd skin that's hard to match...
    And white girls that tan so much, they attempt to put makeup on to lighten their faces- and end up looking like mis-fired porcelain dolls. I wanna go wash their faces off... Because the bronzer goes on on TOP of the too light foundation... Grrrr... I'll stop while I'm ahead! LOL

    8.) What's a good moisturizer? I'm stumped on this one!

    Clinique. I've got combo skin, and it's really REALLY sensitive too. It's the yellow moisturizer, clear tube, silver cap. I can't for the life of me remember what the "name" of it is. I use Olay foaming face wash- it's the perfect balance I've found thusfar!

    9.) Is there anything you'd like to see reviewed on the blog? Suggestions? Comments?

    Hmmm....
    Maybe submissions for "Most creative eye of the week"??
    I think in type... Don't mind me ;)

    10.) Anything else you feel is necessary to share?

    BRAIIIIIINZZZZZZZZZZZ!!!!!!!!!

  10. 1.) How'd you find Makeup Zombie? Feel free to include links to other blogs (I'm sharing the love!)

    I think maybe you posted a comment on Phyrra's blog, and I followed the link? Not quite sure.

    2.) Do you have a blog too? What's the link?

    Yes ma'am :) just clicky on muh name

    3.) Favorite brand (s) of makeup? Favorite colors?

    Hi-Fi Cosmetics is my favorite ever! Amazing, unique colors, and Veronica the owner is a fucking darling. I adore her. I also love Melissa and her line Morgana Minerals. Stardust and Evil Shades, Fyrinnae, High Voltage, and Sassy are all up in their too. For non-indie brands, I'm an Urban Decay type of girl.

    4.) Favorite mascara? I really need to know cause I can't find a good one!

    My fave was MAx Factor 2000 Calorie Extreme Lash plumper. They stopped selling MF in the US :( I like Rimmel Sexy Curves, and the L'Oreal collegen lash injection or whatever it's called.

    5.) One makeup product you recommend to everyone you can't live without?

    Urban Decay Primer Potion! How did I live without it?

    6.) What's your every day makeup style?

    Bright colors!

    7.) What is your biggest makeup pet peeve?

    When I see people walking around looking like they got punched in both cheeks... oh wait they just didn't blend their blush.

    8.) What's a good moisturizer? I'm stumped on this one!

    My favorite moisturizer is discontinued too! Ahhh! I've just been using plain St Ives lotion for my face, it REALLY moisturizes it and doesn't cause me to break out.

    9.) Is there anything you'd like to see reviewed on the blog? Suggestions? Comments?

    Any reviews of all the lil indie companies we shop at, I love seeing other people's opinions of them. I really like your blog, I'm looking forward to more LOTD's too :)

    10.) Anything else you feel is necessary to share?

    I like zombie movies :) I like all movies that are gorey and nasty, actually. My movie and book tastes are soooo ungirly compared to everything else I love. Serial killers? Drug addicts? Count me interested :P

    2.) Do you have a blog too? What's the link?

    maybelline colossal in black or i bought this one which is in a different coloured tube called ULTRA BLACK, but they're the exact same.

    5.) One makeup product you recommend to everyone you can't live without?

    8.) What's a good moisturizer? I'm stumped on this one!
    i don't wear moisturiser... lol, i'm a teenager so my skin is "dewy" enough on its own, plus i'm always terrified that they'll give me acne and i don't know how to deal with that!?!?1

    9.) Is there anything you'd like to see reviewed on the blog? Suggestions? Comments?

  12. Clearly I'm digging through your archives right now. But I'm in a beautyish mood and I've got hair dye on my head and some time to kill...

    1.) How'd you find Makeup Zombie? I searched Blogger for other bloggers based in Albuquerque.

    2.) Do you have a blog too? Yes'm! www.untypicallyjia.com

    3.) Favorite brand (s) of makeup? Favorite colors? I'll be honest, I'm not brand loyal. I look for what's pretty and on sale. Favourite colors are usually brights. I love red and purple eye shadows and red lipstick! I'm determined to learn to love black eyeliner even though people say it's not for me.

    4.) Favorite mascara? I really need to know cause I can't find a good one! Okay yeah . . . I don't wear mascara (hides shamefully)

    5.) One makeup product you recommend to everyone you can't live without? A good eye shadow brush.

    6.) What's your every day makeup style? Right now, it's nothing. I'm really wanting to get back into being beautiful on the outside as well as the inside. I've spent the last two years battling OCD, depression and agoraphobia. I've also lost 16 pounds and I really want to concentrate on prettying myself up more.

    7.) What is your biggest makeup pet peeve? Caked on foundation.

    8.) What's a good moisturizer? I'm stumped on this one! Well so am I!

    9.) Is there anything you'd like to see reviewed on the blog? Suggestions? Comments? I'm new to your blog so I don't know if you've already covered any of this, but I'd love an advice set of posts. I'm clueless.

    10.) Anything else you feel is necessary to share? You rock sistah-friend!
