Seven Deadly Sins of Beauty
I saw a couple of weeks ago alaskayoungx.blogspot.com wrote a post named 'Seven deadly sins of beauty' - I haven't written anything in a while due to attempting to get my life back on track so I thought this post could fill the gap between writing something new, yet not interesting.
1. Greed: What is your most expensive beauty item?
Benefit They're Real mascara. I had a debate whether I should risk spending just under £20 on a premium brand of make-up because a lot of the time it tends to be just hype and I've instantly wasted money I could of spend on something else but with this it's probably one of my favourite beauty purchases. It's made me excited to try out even more Benefit products.
2. Wrath: What beauty item do you have a love/hate relationship with?
Benefit Boi-ing concealer is an obvious choice for me right now. It's so good yet due to my skin becoming very dry (thanks winter) it's hard to paste on and it frustrates me, even though I've exfoliated 100 layers of skin off, I still find it can be difficult to apply. Amazing product, once again!
3. Gluttony: What makeup brand is the biggest chunk of your makeup collection?
I don't really have a lot of one brand. I've mix and matched brands my whole 'make-up life' because no brand is going to be perfect in every area. I have two Benefit products, two No 7 products and the rest are all different. Not a massive chunk. (Sorry for saying Benefit so much in just three questions).
4. Sloth: What product do you neglect to use due to laziness?
Primer. I always forget about it and even when I see it I just think that I'm just doing my make-up for a day of nothing so I never can be bothered. I do aim to use it more though. Hopefully.
5. Pride: Which beauty product gives you the most confidence?
All of them? Hence why I use them. I'm not sure how I'd be without foundation, mascara and liquid eyeliner though, I put them on even when I don't plan on leaving the house. I look awful without them and just them three products alone cover up so much.
6. Lust: Which item is at the top of your beauty wish list?
Naked Palette 2 and Benefit Porefessional. I've heard unlimited good things about both of these products so I'm excited to buy them in the new year. I'm also after Real Techniques, MAC and Chanel make-up brushes. The ones I'm using currently are getting me through it but there's better.
7. Envy: What makeup product do you think looks great on others but not yourself?
Eyeshadows. I haven't got the brushes, decent eyeshadow (or technique) to apply it nicely. I always look like a drag queen, and not one that looks fab. I also don't think I suit bright and dark lipsticks. My lips aren't as big as I'd appreciate so that effects me.
