Tag: The Seven Deadly Sins of Beauty


Blimey it's been a while since I've posted! I have been busy, only two weeks left of college.. then I'll have plenty of free time! I was recently tagged by Emily, I think it's such a good blog post.. so thanks for tagging me!

What is your most expensive beauty item?
Apart from an odd expensive foundation, I would say it is probably my Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipshine. I have currently bought two, my first was limited edition - so unfortunately it is now gone :'( And so I replaced it with something quite similar.. '68 Candeur', it's a really cute baby pink colour, that just gives your lips a nice pinky nude shine - great with a more dramatic eye. It was £24, yes quite expensive - but every girl needs a little Chanel in their life!

Which item do you have a love/hate relationship with?
Foundation. I don't know about you, but finding the perfect foundation seems to be a struggle. The colour match, the coverage and so on! Some days a certain foundation can look really nice, other days it's like my skin has literally changed overnight and does not like it AT ALL.

Which brand makes up the biggest chunk of your makeup collection?
I would definitely have to say Benefit, it's just the cute packaging draws me in! It also helps that I get 20% as I currently work in Debenhams :) yayayyy for staff discount! However, I do have a lot of others brands that contribute heavily to my collection - I just love trying new brands and products.

What product do you neglect to use due to laziness?
Well it depends what day really, but I would say it's probably eyeliner - I only every wear liquid eyeliner on the top lash line.. but it seems to take some effort, plus some days I just want a fresher/less make up look!

What beauty product gives you the most confidence?
Hmm, I think it would have to be concealer. This little beauty is so handy, even if you just have a little blemish it can drag your confidence right down, and yet with just with a little concealer it can suddenly make you feel so much better! Could not live without it :)

Which item is at the top of your beauty wish list?
I have many products that I want, but my next item is the bareminerals starter kit. I've always been intrigued by mineral foundation, yet I've never tried it. I was surprised to find out it has good coverage, and it's good for your skin.. and it is soooo quick to apply! Can't wait to buy it, I'm just waiting for my shade to come back in stock!!

What makeup product/look is great on others but not on yourself?
I've always loved the look of smokey eyes, like PROPER smokey eyes, but I've never been brave enough to try it.. maybe I'll try it one day - in the house when no one is around to judge ;)

Thanks again for tagging me, I'm going to tag:
