7 Deadly Sins of Beauty Tag

 I don't normally do tag posts, but I woke up today with a complete mental block and not having a clue what to post today. I ideally wanted to do some swatch posts of the O.P.I Nice Stems collection or an OOTD, but the grim weather means crappy lighting for photos and I also don't fancy standing outside in the rain :( The lovely Rachel suggested that I do this tag, and I actually quite like it, it's a bit different from the usual tags out there and it's a nice way for you to get to know a little bit more about me, so here goes...

GREED
What is your most inexpensive beauty item? What is your most expensive?
My most inexpensive beauty items are my MUA lipsticks. At £1 each they're such good quality for the price! My most expensive has to be my Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland Book of Shadows. I've had this for around three years now I think, hence why it is falling apart a little bit haha. I can't remember how much this cost, but it was between £30-35.

WRATH
What beauty products do you have a love/hate relationship with? What product has been the hardest to get?
I have a love/hate relationship with eyeliners and mascaras in general. I love wearing cat-eye winged liner and I feel naked without a couple of coats of mascara, but I haven't found a product that doesn't end up smudged under my eyes after about an hour of wear :(

GLUTTONY
What are your most delicious beauty products?
These would have to be my Lush Bubblegum lip scrub and my Body Shop strawberry flavoured lip balm. They smell and taste so good!
Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub and Body Shop Born Lippy Strawberry Lip Balm

SLOTH
What beauty product do you neglect, due to laziness?
It's either eyeliner or eyeshadow. I hardly ever wear them both at the same time as I can never be bothered applying both in the morning haha. So I either just take my time applying eyeshadow or eyeliner depending on how I'm feeling.

PRIDE
What beauty product gives you the most self confidence?
Like most, I would have to say my foundation and concealer. I don't wear foundation every day, but I used to suffer from very bad acne so I have a lot of acne scarring and hyperpigmentation, so to be able to cover that up makes me feel a lot better.

LUST
What attributes do you find most attractive in the opposite sex?
This is a strange one for this tag haha, but anyway... definitely a sense of humour, he has to make me laugh, and also just be sweet and caring, and know how to cheer me up. And honesty. Honesty is the main thing. Looks-wise, good hair and a cute smile are all it takes.

ENVY
What items would you most like to receive as a gift? 
I'd like to receive something that I can't afford to buy for myself at the moment. Right now I'd really like the Illamasqua Freak Perfume, I've loved that since I received a sample in one of the Glossy Boxes last year but it's so pricey!


So there's the tag, I hope you enjoyed reading it! I tag all of you to do it, so if you do, make sure you leave a link below so that I can read it :)

  5. I'm the same with mascara, end up looking like a panda by mid day. I've recently got Collection's Skyscraper mascara and it seems to be working well and no panda eyes unless I'm constantly yawning, bonus is that it's cheap :) x

  20. Hey, as for the mascara wrath... i use the Clinique (which i usually associate with older women) Wonder Mascara. It's the best one I've had yet, gives the full long effect that you can get from the Benefit 'They're Real!' without the clumps, and is good for excentuating lower lashes. As for the eyeliner...i just use a liquid one by Rimmel. Best I've ever used. I avoid pencil/shadow because that smudges and comes off easily :)
