7 Beauty Sins Tag

I got this fun tag from Lilit's blog, Makeup and Macaroons. If you haven't checked out her blog before, you really should. Fab pictures & great reviews!

1. Greed: What is your most inexpensive beauty item? What is your most expensive?
My most inexpensive beauty item would have to be my NYX lipliner pencils. I believe they are around $3 each (even cheaper if you buy a few and use an Ulta coupon!). 

My most expensive beauty products would probably be my skin care products. I feel like I can justify spending extra money because taking good care of your skin is so important. I'm always trying out new products looking for my HG but currently I am trying out/using Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream as a night cream ($38) and their It's Potent Eye Cream ($32).

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

I used to have a love/hate relationship with foundation. For years, I stopped using liquid foundation because I hate the heavy feeling of  (some) liquid foundations. I recently started using liquid foundation again and found that Makeup Forever HD foundation is light (feels like I'm not wearing any!) yet still gives me coverage. 

The hardest product(s) to get would have to be certain items in limited edition MAC collections. Most recently, Pink Pidgeon from the Iris Apfel collection. It wasn't sold at counters and sold out on the website very quickly but I finally got my hands on it after it was randomly restocked on the site about a month later.

3. Gluttony: What are your most delicious beauty products?

Obviously I don't eat my beauty products so I'm assuming this tag question is referring to scent ;) I don't like heavily-scented products and usually try to shop for unscented or lightly- scented products. However, I do enjoy the scent of Jack Black's lip balms in Black Tea & Blackberry and Fresh Sugar's lip treatment (it smells like yellow pez!).  Another product that I don't mind a sweet scent in is hand sanitizer. Bath & Body Works mini hand sanitizers smell great and don't leave a heavy alcohol scent behind.

4. Sloth: What beauty products do you neglect, due to laziness?

If I'm running late or feeling a lazy makeup day, I usually skip bronzer. 

Benefit Hoola Bronzer

5. Pride: What beauty product gives you the most self-confidence?

It's a tie between mascara & lipstick (I'm addicted!) but if I had to choose one I'd say mascara. I love how mascara brings attention to my blue eyes.

Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes! & Benefit They're Real

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

Not sure how this is considered a beauty/makeup question per se but I'd say a great personality (kind, funny, etc.)

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

I'd love to receive a YSL lipstick. Hint, hint boyfriend ;) They are beautiful and I hear the quality is amazing but I have yet to bring myself to pay over $30 for a lipstick (not that I haven't come close!).
