Seven Sins of Beauty

keep calm wear lipstickScrolling through my reader ‘Seven Sins of Beauty’ caught my eye, so I thought I would do my first ever beauty/blog tag! I spotted this first on macmepretty.com. Just like her I was also waiting on a MAC order, well more like procrastinating about hitting the ‘pay now’ button on the MAC US website…. I still haven’t done it… but I want to so bad!

GREED: What’s your most expensive beauty item?

That’s a tricky one, I always over-contemplate purchases and shop around so I am lucky and get some amazing deals! But probably either my Naked 2 palette or my MAC pearl matte face powder in pink buttercream.

WRATH: What product do you have a love/hate relationship with?

Two products! Firstly, the Rimmel Stay Matte Mousse.It’s super awkward to apply because of its mousse texture, but then you get it all in place and it looks nice, with build-able coverage and great colour matching. But then you accidentally scratch or rub your face the tiniest bit and it comes away so easily. Which leaves you with this odd natural skin patch making you look like you have cake face. Secondly, it’s the Loreal Base Magique. It feels so nice, and my face feels crazy smooth when I put it on. But it’s expensive and I don’t know if it actually makes a difference?!

GLUTTONY: What brand takes up most of your collection?

I have a real mixture! At the moment MAC and e.l.f make up the most.

SLOTH: What product do you ignore due to laziness?

There’s lots of products I should pay more attention to, but I swear there’s just not enough hours in the day! Body moisturiser, facial sun block, my organic rose hip oil and my contouring products all deserve more love and usage from me! I am actually in the process of trying to get into a better body moisturising habit.

PRIDE: What product gives you the most confidence?

Foundation, by far! After years of having terrible skin and really not knowing how to treat and deal with it, foundation covers up what I am now in the process of fixing. Also I love that look and feel of a face which has just had dewy foundation applied and then fixed with a light powder, it’s like a clean, smooth, blank canvas.

LUST: What item is at the top of your list?

There are so many! On that MAC order I am procrastinating over I have the pro-longwear foundation, but I also really want to try NARS sheer glow. Naked 3 is definitely right up there too.

ENVY: What makeup product looks great on others but not on you?

Red lipstick! I crave that classic red lipstick look.. but it just looks straight up silly on me! I also have a love/hate/not sure about relationship with purple lipstick. Berry shades seem to work a treat, but I want to be able to rock a deep purple!
