7 Deadly Sins of Beauty - Tag Post!

 I think I can totally handle all that! Let the deadly reveal begin!

What is your most expensive beauty item?

Probably my Koh Gen Do Oriental Plants Emollient Cream. I received it in a previous Glossybox and I was hooked. It's super moisturizing without being thick and heavy and little bit goes a long way. It's enriched with 36 botanical extracts that leave your skin smooooth. Oh yeah, it also costs $123 for 1.06 oz. Yeah.

What item do you have a love/hate relationship with? 

Definitely my eyelash curler. Sometimes it curls my lashes perfectly and gorgeously with no issue whatsoever, and then there's other days where one eyelash is sticking out at the bottom and another is aimed to the right and another to the left. ::le sigh:: Brat. 

What brand takes up most of your collection?

Hehehe. If you have read my posts or know me from Makeuptalk, then you know the answer to this Coastal Scents....

  This picture consists of the 7 Go Palettes, 10 Blush Palette, Blush Too Palette, 120 Palette One, 120 Palette Two, 120 Palette Three, 42 Shimmer Blush/Eyeshadow Palette, 252 Ultimate Palette, 88 Original, 88 Ultra Shimmer, 88 Metal Mania, 88 Mirage, 88 Prism, 11 quads, two single pots and their 22 Brush set and 12 Brush set combined. It wasn't until afterwards that I realized that I left out the 120 Palette Four (which is two trays of 60 shadows each) because I had it set aside for review. I also have the 120 Palette Five on my way to me. ::grins:: Did I mention I like Coastal Scents? Here's another pic of the palettes:


Which product do you neglect the most due to laziness?

Probably my brushes. I know you're supposed to wash them often and I definitely do with my concealer brush and most used eyeshadow brushes, but I definitely need to be doing it more often! ::slaps wrist::


What gives you the most confidence?

My brightener, for sure. I use Maybelline's Age Rewind Concealer Brightener and I swipe it under my eyes (in a triangle if I need extra brightness and glow from dark circles/tired, etc.), on the center of my chin, down the bridge of my nose and from the corner of my lips and upwards (smile lines). It just adds a glow to my face, highlights it perfectly and covers up those yucky dark circles! Ack!

Which item is at the top of your beauty wish list?

 Other than having fabulous, gorgeous, voluptuous hair? I would say the Urban Decay Eyeliner Vault, but I'm pretty sure it's not going to be coming out anymore (I could be wrong though! ::crosses fingers::), and I also could say the Sephora Disney Cinderella Palette, but THAT could be gone for good also! Yeesh! So let's just go with ALL of Lime Crime's Liquid Eyeliners....SO PRETTY!

Either that or this NYX Cosmetic's Case...


Which makeup product/look is great on others but not on yourself?

Wearing eyeliner on the bottom of your eye. I just can't do it. I have TRIED. Believe me. First of all, I have melancholy eyes, they're smaller than average, closer together and down-turned on the outside, so when I put eyeliner on my bottom lash line, my eyes look more sad and more down-turned. My eyes also water A LOT from yawning or sensitivity, therefore, my eyeliner can smudge. I tend to stay away from lining the bottom essentially, which is A-OK with me most of the time. I find it better for girls with smaller eyes, down-turned eyes etc. to stick to just lining on top! It makes your eyes appear more wide-open and bright. The only liner I usually use underneath is white eyeliner for my waterline.
