TAG: The 7 Deadly Sins of Beauty

By Inordinatelyplush @inordinateplush

I’m not even sure if I’ve been tagged to do this, but I have watched a million of these deadly sin videos and recently seen a few blog posts so I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon. I don’t own a serious amount of beauty products –I like to use one thing up before I start a new one- but I will try my best.


What is your most inexpensive beauty item?


Tenna for whoever spies the TJHughes price tag*

I own a lot of inexpensive products, but I’m going with the one that I am actually amazed at, and that’s my St Moriz fake tan. I know a lot of you will gasp in horror, but then the other half will cheer me like a champion –hooray. Can we complain for £2.99 –really? I love how easy it is to apply, and yes application technique may take some practice shots but you get there in the end. There’s just no way I’m spending more than a fiver on something that’s going to wash off in a few days –and for someone who likes exfoliating, come on!

What is your most expensive beauty item?


I’m going to go with my Benefit Brow-Zings for this one. I literally hate forking out for it, but I need it in my life; I’ve tried a few snidey versions to try and save the pennies, but nothing quite fits the boat. It’s around £24 but it will last me months and months! I think Benefit in general is expensive.


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


Mac Fix+ without a doubt. I love the idea of it, but I can’t tell if it does anything for my face. I have been using it recently to ‘set’ my make up and it smells gorgeous, but what does it do!? I can imagine it being lovely in the summer when it’s hot –I really want the mini one for my bag- and it smells lush, but right now.. I’m not so sure.

What product has been the hardest to get?

Until recently, I haven’t been ‘in the know’ about new products and releases, I just bought things as and when I spotted them in Fenwicks or Boots. However, at the minute I am struggling to find the Maybelline Colour Tattoos anywhere near me, so this is a slight downer.


What are your most delicious products?


My –new- Jimmy Choo perfume! I am absolutely loving it. I actually bought it from a lovely fellow blogger the other week, and I have wore it every day since. The smell isn’t something I’d usually go for, I tend to stick to Chanel and Estee Lauder scents, but I am in love.-with this one.


What beauty product do you neglect, due to laziness?


Body moisturiser. At the minute I have a Burt’s Bees one and a Nivea one at my bedside but I’m either in a hurry in the mornings or too tired in the evenings after a bath. I’ve decided that creamy body moisturisers are just too much effort. Which is why I’m now using one of those body moisturising sprays.


What beauty product gives you the most confidence?


I think I’m going to say foundation, and at the minute I’m using Benefit’s Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow foundation. I am really pale at the minute and my tiredness is not helping with how my face looks in general. So a good helping of this definitely makes me feel perky and ready for the day ahead. Before this one I used Mac’s Studio Sculpt which I’ve loved for a good 2 years, but it seems my skin has grown tired of it.


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


Because who doesn’t want to see a shot of Mr Beckham in the middle of a beauty blog post? – Closer magazine

This obviously means physical attributes right? Well, I like a good forearm, a sturdy forearm, and if we’re just dreaming up a perfect man here, then I’d say broad shoulders, sexy stubble, toned stomach and a naturally hair-less back –just don’t even shave it if it is hairy guys, just don’t. There is simply nothing worse than tickling a guy’s back that has…stubble.  !?


What items would you most like to receive as a gift?

I really would like a Clarasonic as a gift; I am dreaming big here as they are so expensive. I love a good foamy cleanser in the mornings, preferably with a nice zesty scent to wake me up, and I just think the Clarasonic would be amazing at waking up the face.


I tag YOU to do this, I hope you enjoyed!
