Greed, Wrath, Gluttony, Sloth, Pride, Lust and Envy are the Seven Deadly Sins but what about in the beauty world? I thought this was be a fun way to get to know me a little more so here are my 7 Deadly Sins of beauty:

GREED: What is your most inexpensive beauty item? What was your most expensive? 

Ha Ha I am such a sucker for anything from a drugstore...it's like my sweet shop! I absolutely love MUA products from Superdrug. I also love the hair accessories from Primark too!  I don't really pick products based on price (obviously if its inexpensive!) but I LUUURVE  a good bargain. As for my most expensive? Probably the day I walked into Urban Decay, dropped all 3 Naked palettes on the counter and slid my bank card across to the Sales Assistant while pushed my sunglasses up my nose. As she handed me over my little bag she told me "Good for you, treat yourself!" I simply said "I'm a blogger, here's my business card." (yes, I have those!) and sashayed outta there! Ha Ha. I joke I wasn't a b*tch to the lovely girl but her jaw did drop a little when she seen  me coming with an arm full of palettes! 

WRATH: What product do you have a love/hate relationship with? 

Oh man there is nothing worse than the feeling of disappointment after making a hefty purchase of a dreamt-about product and its not all its cracked up to be! I have a love/hate thang with Mac Studio Fix Fluid foundation; some days I look flawless, other days I look like I'm having a flashback to messing with my mum's makeup when I was 8 years old... I'm a little Hm-hah about mascaras too. Sometimes I have these amazing falsie-looking lashes and others it's clumpy-smudge galore! :( Do you ever get that?!

GLUTTONY: What is your most delicious beauty products?

Oooohhh....Anything Soap and Glory! I could just eat that stuff right up! Especially the Sugar Crush body wash and moisturiser, seriously just go and smell it! I could also buy all of the Kate by Rimmel lipsticks like a hundred times over! How they apply, they smell, they feel on...daaaaymn gurl you could swear they cost you €20 a bullet! 

SLOTH: What beauty product do you neglect, due to laziness?

Ugh..primers, man. The benefits, I hear you but will I still bother, nope! Unless I was making a serious effort for something then of course! It also would be contouring...a technique I once loved but I have now grown to hate it thanks to it's overuse and poorly done jobs. (Must. Not. Rant.) So my contour palettes only get a day out if a client asks for it.

PRIDE: What product gives you the most self confidence?

On days where I'm running late or I'm doing my makeup on the go or something then all I need is some concealer and mascara! I quick swipe of mascara and I can bat my lashes at anything I want, and get it. Ha Ha I wish! I really love the Bourjois Healthy mix concealer dabbed under my eyes just to brighten my face a little too.

LUST: What attributes do you find most attractive in the opposite sex?

OOFT... dat ass!  Ahem! I mean when someone takes good care of their physical appearance (not necessarily someone who is goodlooking) whether they just wash and shave regularly or work out every day. It shows that he is confident in himself and  love and appreciates himself enough that he want to show the world. If he takes care of himself then he will take care of you too. (This won't apply to everyone, so remember that!) 

ENVY: What item(s) would you most like to receive as a gift?

Is this like they have it so I want it sorta thing? Hmm...Just give me Kanye's credit card and an hour in Brown Thomas and I'll meet you in Starbucks afterwards. I would love a set of Zoeva brushes, they look really nice! Also any of the TooFaced Palettes. Oh, and a new Touche Éclat Pen pretty please?!
