A look into beauty, that doesn't harm our furry friends
Oh snap, I went perusing through the beauty blogs here on WordPress, and I found some great posts! Favorite lipsticks, suggestions for concealers (LOVE), skincare, and a whole bunch more. My favorite thing I encountered though were tags- I’ve never done a blog tag! So let’s rip the band-aid off and dive in! (BTW I found this on Bauble & Trinket’s blog, go check her out!)
Greed: What’s your most expensive beauty item?
I actually had to go digging through the old receipts to verify, but go figure it’s a skin-product: Aesop Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant serum. What kills me about this is that when my hormonal acne started going butt-crazy, I had to stop using this! *sobs* I use it on my neck and decolletage, so it’s still getting used. Like hell I’m gonna let my money go to waste!
Wrath: What item do you have a strong love/hate relationship with?
My beauty oils! I’m looking at my Josie Maran Argan Oil Light, and just hating my skin. I used to have a fantastic skin routine, including adding oil in my nighttime moisturizing. The days where I could do that, stress-free, are gone now because of my stupid hormonal acne (mainly my pores can be clogged soo easily). I can KIND OF get away with it now, but I have to be really cautious of how much I use, and it -must- be after more drying skin routines (exfoliating and masks).
Gluttony: What brand takes up most of your collection?
It’s kind of a tie- in 2013, when I really started obsessing about cruelty-free products, I was all over Lush like a cat on kitty crack. Pretty much I was in my store every week, ready to try a new product and leave with more goodies. It was kind of gross. I even placed at order through the UK site to send to my dad’s in the US in preparation for a trip I was making home, just to save money and try products not available here in HK. My crazy-phase has seemed to calm down though, and I’m easily 1/3 through the products I’ve hoarded up. The other line I’ve been gaga about is Tarte. *swooooon* I genuinely just haven’t encountered a product from Tarte that I haven’t truly enjoyed. Do you remember my haul from the states? I pretty much went Tarte CRAZY with all the holiday packets they had available… and when I’m back in the states I DO PLAN on going on a Tarte haul.
Sloth: What product do you ignore the most due to laziness?
So.many.HAND CREAMS. I really think I’d be down 2 of my 5 containers if I was just better about using them. From The Body Shop to Soap & Glory… I just… need to stop making excuses and use them.
Pride: Which product gives you the most confidence?
I didn’t think I’d pick this (these) but I gotta go with my Lipstick Queen Saint’s line lipsticks. They’re just soo fool-proof, and I feel like my lips just look fantastic. I don’t need to stress about needing a lip liner and bleeding/feathering, and they’re just the right amount of pigment that makes me feel comfortable. You have to check out the line, the creator (Poppy King) is just a genius.
Lust: What item is at the top of your list?
I’m reading this as something I WANT.. as in not in my possession… and oooooh man you guys, I have such a huge list. Seriously, I have written a list out. And I’m already writing on the back of the page. ^^;; If I had to pick one item though, I think I’d go with one of the Hourglass Ambient Blushes. Have you seen them? Just pure beauty eye-porn, right there. ❤
Envy: Which makeup product/look looks great on others but not on you?
This is just a sad truth, but I haven’t got on well with the Nars Creamy Concealer. I know, I must be crazy right? Everyone and their brother’s cat’s poo has gone on about how this is fantastic. In my defense, I had one of the ladies at the Nars counter apply it for me, and maybe it was HER fault for it creasing under my eyes and not covering my acne. I -will- give it another though, I promise!
Yay, I did it! And you’re still here! We’re champions, you and I. And if YOU write a blog, I tag YOU to do this! I’ll probably post another tag soon, I had fun thinking through these. Until the next one, hope you’re having a great day!
