The 7 Deadly Sins Of Beauty

Greed – What is your most expensive beauty item?
I’ve never spent over £15 on a beauty product just because there’s always that thing that it might not work for you. However after seeing the incredible hype over the Alpha H Liquid Gold and after reading tons of reviews I had to delve into my pockets and spend a little more than I am use to. It’s one of my ultimate beauty must have’s if you’re looking for something that can resurface the skin and aid in its natural renewal all whilst minimising pores and acne. I reviewed it >here<

Sloth – What beauty product do you neglect due to laziness?
I have to admit I’ve tried to push myself into the 3 step beauty regime of cleanse, tone and moisturising but I just don’t get the middle part. Yes toning supposedly rids any left-over makeup and helps to remove dead skin cells. However It’s definitely not a favourite in my personal regime and also due to the fact I use other products that aid in the same process of toning so I suppose I purposely neglect this type of beauty product.


Wrath – What item do you have a love/ hate relationship with?
Rimmel Scandal Eyes Mascara. It’s one of those products that you’re raving about one minute and hating the next. It’s great for thickening lashes and adding a touch of volume but boy ‘o’ boy it’s a pain in the beauty ass to remove! I’ve owned quite a few waterproof mascaras but even those bad boys have removed themselves from my eyelashes (using an oil based product) easier than this. However If your wanting a super stay put mascara then add this lash thickener to your collection.


Gluttony – What brand makes up the most of your makeup collection?
No doubt about it Bourjois. They’re a brand I’ve grown with and no matter what product I pick up I haven’t been disappointed. The Clubbing Liner is the best liner I’ve tried. It sticks around is super black and its thin brush means you can create natural and bold flicks. Their pigmented, super moisturising lipsticks beat any other lip product I’ve owned and they don’t bleed! The Bourjois chocolate bronzer has lasted me a life time and is a favourite in the blogging world.  I’ve strayed a few times from the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation but I’ve always been disappointed. This product is perfect for my dry-combination skin, leaving a dewy finish with a medium coverage.


Pride – What product gives you the most confidence?
Liquid Liner. I feel bare without it, even if it’s a quick thin line to define across the eye or a small flick in the corner to create that feline look. I’ve got pretty large round eyes and a little cat eye makes me feel  fierce.

Lust – Which item is at the top of your beauty list?
I’ve a whole list of products I’m lusting for at the moment but my top 3 would have to be the infamous Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser, Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray and the Indeed Labs Set of 3 Sampler Kit which is now in Boots!


Envy – Which makeup look is great on others but not on you?  
Nude lips. With a base tan a nude lip look pretty awesome and goes hand in hand with a bold eye. However with my light skin tone and light shade of eye colour the only result I get with a nude shade is a washed out faced and foundation smothered looking lip. *sigh*

  1. LOVE this tag! Might do it myself! I'm in total agreement about the nude lip. I don't know how others look so good with one, it just makes me look washed out and ill! Haha

  3. Liquid eyeliner can make such a difference in my confidence too, I don't feel like 'me' without a cat eye. Nude lips don't suit me either unfortunately cause there are a lot of pretty nude colours out there xx

  9. I have stopped using waterproof mascaras because they are so difficult to remove.
    I'm using the Bourjois mix serum at the moment and I really like it.
