I thought I would try doing the 7 Deadly Sins of Beauty Tag. Instead of going through drawers of makeup, I thought I would just go with products that I use more regularly.
So the first questions is:
1. GREED: What is your most inexpensive beauty item? What is your most expensive?
For my most inexpensive beauty item it would be my Avon ultra luxury eyeliner in Dark Brown. This is my eyeliner of choice and I wear it pretty much every day. I stopped wearing black a while ago as I found it a bit harsh and to animated. This eyeliner in particular is really pigmented, smooth and creamy and is just a breeze to apply. I highly recommend them!
My most expensive beauty item would probably be my Chanel Vitalumiere ($55) foundation and a close second would be my Bobbi Brown shimmer brick($50). I've had my shimmer brick for a really long time and use it at least three times a week so I think it was well worth it. The foundation on the other hand is way to dewy for my liking.
2. WRATH: What beauty products do you have a love/hate relationship with? What product has been the hardest to get?
Tinted Moisturizer. I really love the idea of tinted moisturizer but sometimes I apply it and it just looks splotchy and that could totally just be my skin. Other times I apply it it looks really nice but about an hour or less later it will be really oily and I look like a full-fledged grease ball. Considering my skin isn't crazy oily its just not practical for me to wear for an entire day. A product for me that was the hardest to get and never ended up getting was this hot pink Chanel lip gloss and I don't even remember the name. I went to literally every Chanel counter I could and it just wasn't happening. I think it was from their last years winter collection.
3. GLUTTONY: What are your most delicious beauty products?
One of my friends gifted me a Philosophy lip shine in peppermint bark, and it basically tastes like mint chocolate. So if you're a fan of mint chocolate you will adore this gloss. I always catch myself licking my lips after applying this product unfortunately, I believe it can only be found around the winter season.
4. SLOTH: What beauty product do you neglect, due to laziness?
Highlighter. Whenever I am in a rush I just can't be bothered. Also my night time skin care routine. A lot of times I am just so tired that I fall asleep in my makeup or after just having washed my face.
5. PRIDE: What beauty product gives you the most self confidence?
Foundation, having nice skin is such a challenge for me and is one of my greatest insecurities. I think it helps give everyone a boost of confidence especially if you struggle with your skin.
6. LUST: What attributes do you find most attractive in the opposite sex?
Someone who looks clean and well put together.
7. ENVY: What items would you most like to receive as a gift?
I would probably most like to receive perfume because it is usually the last think that I buy. I have hoards of perfume from when my cousin was selling Avon and I've been trying to use them all up before splurging.
Here is a swatch of the Philosophy Peppermint Bark Lip Shine & The Avon Ultra Luxury Dark Brown eyeliner pencil. The one to the right is one line and the middle one is the eyeliner layered.
Hope everyone is well and has a wonderful week.
