Ashley and I did a blog tag when we first started.. okay so that’s 3 years ago? Or 2? I cannot remember. Anyway, I was looking through old posts and I thought, gosh so much has changed! And so I thought I’d like to reliven this old tag.. Well I’m not tagging anyone this time but if you’d like to, just join anyway! 😉
7 Deadly Beauty Sins
What brand makes up the biggest chunk of your collection?
This is a pretty difficult question – I’ve been a beauty blogger for awhile so *feeling blessed* I’ve got quite a range! But I guess one brand I’m super faithful to is 13Rushes makeup brushes – forever! Economical? Good. Quality? Good. What’s not to like!?
P/S: My favorite is the Round Powder Brush!
What beauty products do you have a love/hate relationship with?
From the last time I wrote this till now… undereye concealer. Some days, I look flawless and well rested. The very next day, sometimes (even with the same application method), it creases and fades off and makes me look like I’ve not slept since ever. WHY!?
What are your most delicious beauty products?
I like Benefit’s BeneBalm taste-wise! It goes on really smoothly with a nice tint of color, really hydrates the lips and yet gives this somewhat sweet (but not cloyingly) taste. I normally find products with taste very gross and artificial, but I love this!
Scent-wise I really like Lush’s Dream Cream! Smells like a dream.
What beauty products to you neglect due to laziness?
I always skip primer… I know.. What the heck. I live in Singapore for goodness sake. But I just never got around to it. My skin is dry and my sunblock dries matte (does that count?). Sometimes I find a primer I really like but then later forsake it because it’s just not worth the hassle anymore. I think I’m just lazy lol – hence, sloth.
What beauty products give you the most self-confidence?
A nice undereye concealer, luminous sheer loose powder and a great highlighter! Right now I’m using CDP’s concealer, BareMinerals’ Perfecting Veil Loose Powder and MAC’s Soft and Gentle Highlighter. I like that whole fresh out-of-bed look *cue a little messy hair* but with no dark rings and a glowy face HAHA. Totally unreal but I think those give me the most confidence! 🙂 There’s no better look than a healthy one.
Which beauty item is at the top of your wish list?
I’m a little slow.. but I really want the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Highlighter/Bronzer. It’s SOOOO expensive and I only just started highlighting… but I do really want it. I’ve heard all these raves and I’m really lemming for it. Time to hint to the boyfriend HAHA!
What makeup product / look , looks great on others but not on yourself?
Forever and always: eyeshadow and mascara. My lids are too small and my eyelashes too short to pull off both. I mean, thank goodness for Carragheen and eyelash extensions.. but lids wise.. nothing much I can do. I draw in my eyeliner and it fills up the whole space! Oh well.
Okay here’s the end of the post! Hope this cheered up your day hehe. It’s going to be midweek soon so hooray! x
