Seven Deadly Sins Of Beauty
To spice things up a bit on the blogiooooo today, I thought why not take part in the Seven Deadly Sins Of Beauty tag that the lovely Heather from Porcelain Beauty tagged me in. Since I've been posting a lot of product reviews and generally writing about different beauty bits, I thought it would be a nice change to write about my thoughts on beauty and telling you about my most expensive item to the products that make me feel like the Queen. Enjoyyyyy ladies and gents.
GREED | What is your most inexpensive beauty item? What is your most expensive?
My most expensive beauty product would have to be my Bobbi Brown Scotch On The Rocks Warm Glow Eye Palette (£60) A.K.A the eye shadow palette of my dreams. As soon as I set eyes on this palette I fell in love and knew it had to be mine. With a mixture of golds, bronzes and champagnes, this is a great all round palette that suits any occasion and look. A total winner in the eye department. Now my most inexpensive product is probably my Natural Collection Eye Shadows, coming in at £2, these are great for every day wear when you don't want anything too fancy. Cheap n cheerful is the way to go sometimes.
WRATH | What beauty products do you have a love/hate relationship with? What product has been the hardest to get?
My hardest product to get hold of is definitely my Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit. So hard that I ended up asking my Dad to pick one up for my in New York, it just seemed impossible to get hold of here in the UK unless you were up for waiting 3 weeks and I wanted those cheekbones ASAP. In terms of love/hate relationships then it's gotta be high end pieces in the way that one day, they will run out and I don't know about you, but for me, EVERYTHING seems to run out at the same time and then i'm due a huge SpaceNK haul and an empty bank account. Don't you just hate it when a dam good serum or foundation runs out thats into the £30 price bracket? Devastating.
GLUTTONY | What are your most delicious beauty products?
I think we can all agree that the MAC Lipsticks are pretty delicious when on the lips. Who doesn't love that soft vanilla scent that lingers when you apply it? Then again, nothing beats the Acqua Di Parmi scents, those perfumes are total heaven and the scents are to die for. I could shower in the Rosa Nobile everyday.
SLOTH | What beauty products do you neglect due to laziness?
I didn't even have to think about this one - curling my eye lashes. Something I literally NEVER do. If I have a pair to hand then yeah sure I'll give em a curl but never will I rush around trying to find them or pick them out when choosing my makeup, it's a step I never got into doing and one I just think I am too lazy for. Mascara is for curling your eye lashes, right?
PRIDE | What beauty products give you the most self confidence?
Hmmmmm. Tricky one. I love a strong contour but I think the answer to this is a red lip. Nothing quite beats the feeling of wearing a dark rich red that's so matte it doesn't budge and so bold you feel like Angelina Jolie. A red lip is the one thing that makes every girl feel glamorous and like they can take over the world. Suggestions? MAC a lacaaaaa. (what just happened) but for a red lip, MAC is where you wanna head. Dubonnet, Russian Red and Lady Danger should all be in your collection.
LUST | What products are you currently lusting after?
There's one way to answer this and that is, too many things. My wish list is never ending right now, everyday I extend it by about 5 products hoping that one day they will magically appear in my makeup bag or somehow I will be able to afford to buy it all. A girl can dream. Top of the list we have alottaa Charlotte Tilbury, most of it being the new collection being released in July, the cream Film Star Bronze & Glow will be mine. Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer is up their somewhere, a By Terry Baume De Rose and Blush and you'll always see the Sunday Riley oil floating about on the list.
ENVY | What items would you most like to receive as a gift?
The Charlotte Tilbury Golden Goddess kit would be a pretty tasty present to unwrap but so would the Kevyn Aucoin Essential Brush Set - coming in at £430, it's unlikely I will be opening this any time soon. A little treat from Hourglass would be nice too, I'm dreaming of the Ambient Light Blush in Dim Infusion.
