~ 7 Deadly Beauty Sins ~

This tag is really fun to do and i think that it is great to reflect on all your products and realise what you have that works or doesn't work. I enjoyed going through this and answering these questions and i encourage everyone to do it and share :)

1. GREED: What is your most inexpensive beauty item? What is your most expensive?
  • Most INEXPENSIVE - "The little green tin (aloe vera) lip therapy balm", purchased from superdrug at a low cost and i really think that this is better than the Vaseline that is loved by many. I use this on my dry lips as well as random dry patches which needs some attention.
  • Most EXPENSIVE - "The Clarisonic Pro", I received this as a gift and although it is expensive, it is worth it as it leaves my skin feeling amazing and helps in the absorption of my products after cleansing. There are many alternative cleaning products out there but i think that the Clarisonic is phenomenal and i think the price is justified.

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

+ YSL rouge volupte lipsticks, I love the packaging of these and the scent is lovely too, but i really do not like the consistency of these. It is way too creamy and it slips and slides alot regardless of how nice the colours look. I have tried to make them work but it always fails and i just get frustrated and turn to another more easily manageable lipstick in the end.

+ CHANEL perfection Lumiere. Upon purchase of this, i realised how drying this was on my skin and left patches and flakes which were very noticeable despite of my oily skin. I do love the scent of it and the coverage is flawless with a matte finish. I do love this in regards to the coverage and the overall finish it gives, but it is way too drying on my skin and sets a bit too quickly and i have to work very quickly with it. You can read my in-depth review here with pictures of before and afters HERE

+ I would have to say most asian skin-care products which i tend to have to purchase online off e-bay or something. One thing that i think UK lacks is sheet facial masks. They are just so convenient to use and i find it is so hard for me to get my hands on decent quality ones here in the UK

3. GLUTTONY: What are your most delicious beauty products?
+ I wouldn't quite know what delicious means in the context of beauty products, but if it is in regards to scents, i would have to say the natural collection lipgloss in 'Rasberry Ripple' and ALL soap and glory products because they smell divine and yummy!

4. SLOTH: What beauty products do you neglect, due to laziness?
+ Benefit porefessional primer: I skip this when i am in a hurry in the morning and just apply my foundation immediately after my moisturiser.

+ Make-up remover: When i am so tired at night, i just whip my pack of make-up wipes out and rub at my eyes and face, even though i know it is bad for the skin especially around the delicate eye area.

+ Lip liners: With the invention of glossy lipsticks and lip butters, i sometimes neglect the lipliners as it is not essential and i simply forget in the morning. Lip liners can undoubtedly accentuate the lips, but sometimes i simple can't be bothered or in a rush.

5. PRIDE: What beauty products gives you the most self confidence?
+ ESTEE LAUDER pore refiner: Minimises my pores and makes my face look flawless whilst giving it an amazing smooth texture to touch. Boosts my confidence and doesn't make me as self conscious about my enlarged pores.

+ LANCOME hypnose waterproof mascara: My holy grail mascara which always gives me the most gorgeous eyelashes ever. It also holds my curl really well so i always enjoy my day knowing that i have long fluttery eyelashes that hasn't drooped.

6. LUST: What products did you lust after before you bought it?
+ NARS Laguna bronza: I spent ages deciding whether to purchase it or not since i already had the benefit's Hoola bronzer. But i finally forked out the money and bought it and i love it and kind of neglected Hoola now.

+ CHANEL Perfection Lumiere foundation: I've wanted this ever since it was launched and there was so much hype around it since it was meant to be a super foundation which incorporates features of the pro-lumiere and the matt lumiere. Lusted over this product for so long and when i finally purchased it, i had a love/hate relationship with it.

7. ENVY: What items would you most like to receive as a gift?
+ I would like people to put some thought into the gifts they give to me because i think that no matter how expensive or great the product is, it may not be suitable for me. But regardless, i don't mind receiving gifts sets of perfumes or skincare products since i don't usually buy sets for myself, normally just the odd product and that.

So that is the tag completed! I tag everyone to do it as i love reading these :) Easter weekend is here so its time to relax and eat plenty of chocolate easter eggs <3

Happy Easter everyone!

Thank you for reading and i hope you have a lovely day <3


  1. It's kind of the opposite in Singapore. Easy to get sheet face masks, but hard to get things that come from England/Europe!!

    A lot of things can be bought online, but the range is really small. Shipping still makes me think twice before buying, like a-England nail polishes. And Australian brands like NP Set and Face of Australia... ... Those are real hard to get.

    YSL is hard to get too. And I had to buy my tiny collection of YSL at the airport. haha, it's not often that one goes overseas!

  2. Happy Easter to you too! I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Awards because I am a new follower but what I have read has been amazing! Lucy xx
