Tag: Seven Deadly Sins of Beauty

Hi, everyone! Today I'd like to do a fun little tag I've seen on a few other beauty blogs. Don't worry: it's much shorter than the last one I did! Feel free to do it in the comments below. I'd love to read your answers! :) 

1. Greed - What are your most expensive and inexpensive beauty items? 
I don't know if this counts since it is a skincare tool, but my Clarisonic Mia 2 costs $149 on HSN, where it was purchased. Technically it was a Christmas gift so it was free, but it's still the most expensive beauty item I own.

As for the least expensive, I've received a bunch of things for free since I am addicted to freebies. However, if I had to pick it based on worth, it would probably be my Banana Boat SPF 45 Lip Balm. It's not my favorite lip balm (it's not as moisturizing as other ones I own), but it does have the most SPF. I like to use this at the beach so my lips don't get sunburned. They've never been sunburned before but I don't want to start now!

2. Wrath - What products do you have a love/hate relationship with?
Eyeliner. I love the effect when it comes out well, but on a bad day when I mess up, I just get so frustrated! Especially with liquid liner. Ugh!

3. Gluttony - What are your most delicious beauty products?
I am addicted to anything with a yummy scent. Right now I'm loving my NYC Applielicious Glossy Lip Balm. It tastes so good, and it adds a hint of red color to my lips so it looks like I just ate a cherry popsicle. It's definitely become a new summer staple for me.

4. Sloth - What beauty products do you neglect due to laziness?
Highlighter: not on my eyes, just my cheekbones. I just look in the mirror, go "eh," and skip it usually. I don't know why. Maybe because I don't see a big enough difference to care? But the most fun details are the subtle ones that only matter to you, in my opinion, so I don't know why this has become a habit of mine. Hmm. 

5. Pride - Which beauty product(s) give you the most self-confidence?
Definitely BB cream, and concealer when I need it. If my skin looks flawless (but still like skin, not with tons of caked-up foundation on), I feel flawless! Sometimes I don't even feel the desire to apply eye makeup if my skin looks awesome, but I usually do anyway just because that's the most fun. :) Right now I'm loving the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream, because it leaves me looking dewey but not oily. 

6. Lust - What one product are you currently lusting after?
It's not an expensive product. I can easily go out and buy it, but I'm trying to restrain myself. I just really want a Maybelline Color Tattoo (especially in Inked in Pink)! I don't need one. I really don't, but I want one so badly! I've been spending too much money lately so I can't let myself have it, especially if I can't justify buying it when I have so much eyeshadow lying around. I don't have any cream eyeshadows yet, but that isn't an excuse. Someone please talk some sense into me. Or enable me. At least put me out of my misery!

7. Envy - What product would you like to receive as a gift?
If you were to knock on my door and give me an Urban Decay Naked or Naked 2 Palette, I might kiss you on the mouth. I'm addicted to neutral eyeshadow, and UD's shadows are always so buttery and smooth. Plus, browns make my eyes pop like crazy!

If you can tell me what color my eyes are, you win my eternal love!
What's your biggest deadly sin? Mine is definitely gluttony, because I love to eat (I blame my Italian heritage!). Tell me in the comments below, or do the questionnaire if you like!

Until next time~
