Bit of a random, "spur of the moment" type of post again, I'm afraid, but one that you'll hopefully find equally as interesting!
I'll start off with something familiar to you all, namely a tag that's been doing the rounds on YT lately, and one that I've been meaning to write about for a while now (huge Se7en fan), but the lovely Argyrousa beat me to it (hehe):
The 7 Deadly Beauty Sins Tag!
1. GREED: What is your most inexpensive beauty item? What is your most expensive?
My most inexpensive beauty item, obviously excluding samples, gifts-with-purchases and swap extras, would have to be my NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils. (You can score some excellent deals on those on ebay if you buy them in sets of 3 or 6). ;)
My most expensive beauty item would definitely have to be my Chanel Lumiere Sculptee Highlighting Powder (but no regrets here, I love the bloody thing)!
2. WRATH: What beauty products do you have a love/hate relationship with? What product has been the hardest to get?
Hmm, I don't really think I have a love/hate relationship with any beauty product at the moment (I've gotten rid of anything that would drive me insane). But if I have to pick, I'd go with peach blusher: sometimes it works on me and sometimes it just doesn't.
As for the one item that was the hardest to get my hands on, well, this would have to be it:
MAC Spiced Chocolate Quad from Cult of Cherry. Looking back now, I think I could have survived without the hunt for it (though don't get me wrong, it's a lovely palette) - I just don't tend to reach for it these days.
3. GLUTTONY: What are your most delicious beauty products?
Becca Sheer Lip Tints. That caramel scent and gorgeous sheen - YUM! In fact, I can't wait to get the newest one from the Balearic Love collection, Valentina!
4. SLOTH: What beauty product do you neglect, due to laziness?
Another one that neglects face primer over here! Who can honestly bother with yet another product to layer on top of serum, moisturiser, sunscreen and foundation? Not me, that's for sure (even typing all of those sounds exhausting).
5. PRIDE: What beauty product gives you the most self confidence?
Blush. Hands down. Otherwise I look like an extra from Corpse Bride (minus the cuteness factor people).
6. LUST: What attributes do you find most attractive in the opposite sex?
Yes... the odd (and gay unfriendly) question in the tag (there's always at least one every time). But, since I have to answer, I'd have to admit that I appreciate kind-yet-piercing eyes, chiseled jaws, broad shoulders and infectious laughter. That and swagger. Hey, I'm a tough crowd to please! :D
7. ENVY: What items would you most like to receive as a gift?
I'm extremely lucky and grateful for everything I already have, but I wouldn't say no to a new blush (Holika Holika makes some cute cat designs if aaaanyone's reading this, also Horizon Blush de Chanel wouldn't hurt either, or maybe just your wallet) or the Fresh Brown Sugar Affair gift set! :) (Dream ooon, dream oooon)
Since I'm unsure of the rules of the tag, I'll just tag the people whose answers would entertain me the most:
The Gloss Goss
Suka&Spice (you HAVE to do it)
Everyone's more than welcome to do it though! :)
I'm closing today's post with a new feature for All the Vanity: "In My Makeup Bag This Week"!
Sundays are ideal for picking out makeup items for the upcoming week - it's a shame to have it all just sit there, so this way I can rotate them and experiment some more with possible looks and combinations. I'm yet undecided if this will be a weekly or a "twice a month" feature, as I'd like to show a completely different selection each time and I'm not sure if one week is enough to get bored of certain items.
So, for the upcoming week(s), I'll be using:
A trio of Sally Girl eyeshadows (swap extras, mediocre pigmentation, but perfect for everyday/uni/errands), Chanel Lumiere Sculptee Highlighter, Physicians Formula Happy Booster Blush in Natural, MAC Fascinating Eye Kohl, Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes mascara (very blah, almost done with it), MAC Icescape lipglass and Etude House VIP lipstick in PK007 (total YSL Lingerie Pink dupe, but in a more satin finish).
And that's it for now!
So, what are you currently using/loving? What do you think of this feature?
Let me know if you do the tag! :)
