Seven Deadly Sins of Beauty
I came across this tag on The Beauty Board and thought it was such a cute idea, so I’m going to join in the fun!
Greed – What’s your most expensive beauty item?
It actually isn’t even technically makeup. So far the most expensive thing in my collection is my Hakuhodo J104 powder brush, which retails at $80. Luckily, it feels like rubbing kitten fur on my face – but without all the sneezing that kittens give me. I use it for my Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder, which is my go-to finishing powder.
Wrath – What item do you have a love/hate relationship with?
Liquid eyeliner. I don’t have the steadiest hands in the world, so there’s been more than once that I had to completely take off my eye makeup and start over because I just couldn’t get it right. But winged liner is so fierce.
Gluttony – What brand takes up most of your collection?
Urban Decay, definitely. Especially the eyeshadows – I have Naked 1 & 2, plus about nine singles. And five shadow pencils. And six eyeliners. And a mascara. I promise I’m not affiliated with them! :-)
Sloth – What product do you neglect the most due to laziness?
Colorful eyeshadows. Neutral shadows are super easy to put together and almost always work-appropriate, so that’s what gets put on my face while I’m still in pre-coffee zombie mode.
Pride – What product gives you the most confidence?
Lipstiiiiiick. Especially brighter pinks. My favorite ‘kick ass and take names’ lipstick right now is Givenchy Le Rouge in Magnolia Organza.
Lust – Which item is top of your beauty wish list?
Ugh, it’s so hard to pick just one! Probably the top one is the Burberry Complete Eye Palette in Plum Pink. I’ve been wanting it for months, but I’ve been trying to buy less eyeshadow lately – I already have way more than I can ever use. I’ve also got a whole list of Givenchy Le Rouge colors that I want – Brun Creatéur full size (I have the Sephora perk mini and love it), Fuchsia Irrésistible, Grenat Initlé and maybe Beige Plume – I haven’t tried it on yet.
Envy – Which make-up product/look is great on others but not you?
Cut crease eyeshadow. I have hooded lids and just haven’t been able to make this look good on me yet. Maybe one day. *sigh*
