I planned to make this post yesterday but I was just soooo busy with Uni work that it had to wait until today! But today I’m more than ready. I’ve seen the 7 deadly sins of makeup tag making its rounds and wanted to join in because it looks so fun!! I hope you enjoy 🙂
1. GREED: What is your most inexpensive beauty item? What is your most expensive?
My most inexpensive item has got to be my NYC Beautifying Blushable cream stick in Soho Pink. I really do love this blush even though I don’t use it as often as I used too! (It used to be a blush I’d wear every day). It’s really blendable and I love that its not a powder because it doesn’t feel as drying. The shade I chose is fairly bright so it works really well in the Summer months. It’s kind of hard to get hold of though, I originally got it from Superdrug a long time ago but now I can’t find it there so have resorted to online. It lasts so long though! Definitely worth getting if you’re looking for a brighter blush and it’s super cheap!
Yep! You guessed it! My most expensive item is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette. It looked so pretty online and people spoke so highly of it that I just HAD to buy it! It’s seriously worth it if you want to splash out a bit on yourself. I think I’m going to use it a lot in Autumn because some of the colours just scream Autumn!! You can check out my review for it here.
2.WRATH: What product do you have a love/hate relationship with?
It’s got to be Mac Pro Longwear Concealer. At first I really did love this product, or maybe I just wanted to love it so much that I tricked myself into loving it. I wore it every single day!!! I still use it sometimes, but no where near as often. It dries and sets so quickly, to the point that I have’t finished using it on my face and it’s just stuck looking all wrong. It can also go into the creases if you’re not careful. I don’t remember it doing that when I first got it. It’s still in date and has been kept with all my other makeup so I wish I knew the problem.
3. GLUTTONY: What brand takes up most of your collection?
This is such a difficult one for me because I have bits of every brand ever!! There isn’t really one brand I rely on. But I will go with L’oreal, because I’ve been using and buying a couple of L’oreal things lately.
I do seem to really like L’oreal, I don’t think I’ve ever bought a product that I haven’t liked from them. And the price is so reasonable too!! If you want to try any of the products in the picture above, I strongly recommend the True Match Liquid Highlighter in Icy Glow. Honestly it’s so so so pretty and easy to apply. I probably will never stop going on about this product.
4. SLOTH: Which product do you neglect due to laziness?
Again, a bit of a difficult question. If I’m having a lazy day and can’t be bothered to do a full face I miss a lot of things: eyeliner, concealer, bronzer.. But if i choose to do my face properly then I won’t really miss anything!
5. Pride: Which product gives you most self confidence?
Definitely lipstick!! I will not leave the house without it because it just makes me feel like I don’t look complete. It really brings the whole makeup look together and makes me feel a million times better.
6. Lust: What item is at the top of your beauty wish list?
Urgh there is just sooo many! But if I have to choose just one, it’ll have to be the Zoeva Cocoa blend palette. My friend recommended it to me about a month ago now and I’ve been meaning to get it but just haven’t got round to it yet! It’s definitely next on my list and I can’t wait.
7. Envy. Which makeup look looks great on other people but not on you?
A dark smokey eye!! I’ve tried this look so many times and it always makes me look like I’ve died. I think it’s because my eyes are quite deep set and are very dark brown. I think I just need brighter colours but I wish I could rock dark smokes too!
Hope you enjoyed my answers, feel free to all join in on this tag! It’s so fun to do. Let me know if you plan on doing this in the comments below!
