My 7 Deadly Sins of Beauty

So one of the YouTubers I follow did this for one of their videos and I thought it would be really cool to do on my blog, so here goes ...!

My 7 Deadly Sins of Beauty

1. Greed.
What is your most inexpensive beauty item and what is your most expensive?

My most inexpensive would be my £1.99 clear mascara from Collection 2000 which I use on my eyebrows every single day (without fail) to hold them in place.

My most expensive beauty item would be my YSL Perfect Touch Radiance Brush Foundation which is £34.00 .... but it is pretty darn good!!!

2. Wrath
What beauty product do you have a love/hate relationship with? And what product has been the hardest to get?

Mascara has to be the one. I absolutely adore mascara, especially my YSL Mascara Volume Effect Faux Cils Shocking (it's amazing) but I hate hate hate with a passion removing it. IT'S SUCH A PAIN!!! But it would never put me off wearing it.

  The hardest product to find would be my Make Up Forever Mat Velvet Plus foundation. It isn't sold in the UK so to find it anywhere apart from the States (which means expensive shipping) has been a nightmare. Luckily I recently found a couple of websites which stock Make Up For Ever so I've finally got it!

3. Gluttony
What are your most delicious beauty products?

One of my favourite delicious products is my Diesel Fuel for Life Unlimited Body Lotion - it just smells incredible! My favourite perfume is Diesel Fuel for Life Unlimited so when I got the body lotion for Christmas last year I was extremely happy! It smells really similar to the perfume, and just makes your skin smell so good!

 My other delicious product is my Raspberry Milkshake Body Scrub. It smells just like raspberries and honestly leaves your skin smelling fabulous! (It even says on the back of the bottle "DO NOT EAT, THIS IS NOT A FOOD PRODUCT" it's that good!!)

4. Sloth
What beauty product do you neglect due to laziness?

 I would have to say it would be primer and the eyeshadow I use to fill in my eyebrows. I used to be obssessed with using primer every single day but now I just can't be bothered. The moisturiser I'm using at the minute (Origins VitaZing SPF15 Energy-Boosting Moisturiser) has a slight tint and pretty much smooths over any imperfections I have on my face so I can just about get away without using one. I only use primer now if I am going for a night out or if there is a special occassion where I need my make-up to stay on as long as possible. I also a bit lazy when it comes to filling in my eyebrows. They're not too bad but for an every day look I just can't be bothered to fill them in! Again I'll only do it for nights out or special occassions.

5. Pride
What beauty products give you the most self confidence?

Has to be both foundation and mascara.  I wouldn't say my skin is awful but I just prefer the look I acheive with foundation. It makes me feel like my skin is just amazing and flawless, and I hate leaving the house without it. Mascara's just as bad because my natural eyelashes aren't particularly dark and so when I have no mascara on I feel like my eyes aren't as defined or look as big and I hate that look. I love big lashes so when I know I've got tons of mascara on I feel so much better and just much prefer the way I look.

6. Lust
What attributes do you find the most attractive in the opposite sex?

This is a bit difficult because I've been with the same boyfriend for just over three years now so I wouldn't say there are certain attibutes or qualities I find most attractive in a man, but I love my boyfriend's dark hair, blue eyes and sense of humour.

7. Envy
What items would you most like to receive as a gift? 

I'd love to purchase some more make-up brushes from either Mac or Sigma first (I only have 6 or 7 at the minute) but I mean to receive any sort of beauty items would be amazing. I love experimenting and trying out new products, especially foundations, mascaras, and lipsticks so a variety of those would be lush!

Hope you enjoyed this!
