This Tag has been going around for a while, I first saw it on fivezero’s blog, and then more recently on agirlwithpinkcheeks’s blog, which then reminded me that I had it in my draft folder. The purpose of this Tag is to name a makeup item associated with each of the Seven Deadly Sins. Side note: this Tag reminds me of the movie Se7en! (good movie but scary!)
What’s your most inexpensive beauty item? What’s your most expensive beauty item?
Most inexpensive: over the years I’ve picked up many beauty items for a dollar, but the one that I use regularly is the Wet n Wild eye shadow in Brulee, which is a fantastic brow highlight shade.
Most expensive: this is a bit embarrassing, but I paid almost $200 for a skincare set from a Korean brand I’d never heard of, and I still haven’t tried all the items yet, and that was 2 years ago. The brand is called History of Whoo and apparently it was used by the royal court. This is like the set I bought:
My goal is to use the whole regimen this winter!
What item do you have a love/hate relationship with?
Mineral makeup. I love buying them and playing around with them, but I don’t use them on a regular basis! My favourite mineral brands are Silk Naturals (foundation and blushes) and fyrinnae (eye shadows). Silk Naturals foundations are neat because you get to mix them yourself so you can adjust your shade to match your winter or summer colour:
What brand takes up most of your collection?
MAC for eye shadows (75) and Essie for nail polishes (81). No shame, and I will indulge in more from both brands in 2016!
What product do you neglect the most due to laziness?
Contouring products. I’ve picked up a few products specifically for contouring, including NYX Taupe blush, MAC Sculpting Powder in Sculpt, and Illamasqua Cream Blusher in Zygomatic… but I hardly ever contour my face.
What product gives you the most confidence?
Concealer. I feel like without under eye concealer, I look really tired and almost sickly. My current favourite is the Maybelline Age Rewind Eraser (see my comparison post of my Maybelline concealers here).
Which item is at the top of your beauty wishlist?
A big portion of my life right now is lusting after beauty products since I am not supposed to be buying anything (save for a few things here and there 😉 ) So I’ll name a newly Lusted item: Sephora Collection Oil Infusion Color & Care ($18):
I saw this reviewed on beautyisles, in which she compared it against YSL Volupté Tint-In-Oil ($35) – it was an instant lust!
Which makeup product looks great on other but not on you?
Bold lipsticks. I just can’t pull it off without looking silly. I personally feel that my lips are too full and anything that draws more attention to them makes me look ridiculous! I’d love to rock something like this:
If you haven’t done this Tag, please do! 🙂
* Explanation of the header image: apparently there is speculation that the characters Spongebob Squarepants are based on the 7 deadly sins – interesting idea.
