7 Deadly Sins of Beauty TAG

7 questions, 7 "Deadly Sins", 1 TAG...Enjoy it...:)

GREED: What is your most inexpensive beauty item? What is your most expensive?

My most expensive item is the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder.
My most inexpensive would have to be a NYX lipgloss which I got on sale for 1 dollar.

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

Love/Hate relationship: Loose shadows/Pigments(they look amazing but they are not user friendly) and Bold lip colours

The hardest to get would have to be Soleil Tan de Chanel(Bronze Universal)

GLUTTONY: What are your most delicious beauty products?

I don't know what is meant by "delicious" really but the first thing that came to mind was the Soleil Tan de Chanel(Bronze Universal)because of the great smell(I hope it qualifies) and a Lavender Body Lotion by L'occitane.

SLOTH: What beauty product do you neglect, due to laziness?

Easy question...!I neglect primer and highlighter.

PRIDE: What beauty product gives you the most self confidence?

I think it would have to be mascara. Concealer(especially under-eye) is just as important but mascara gives me more confidence.

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

Humour and intelligence are the most important and I also tend to go look for the eyes(not the colour but the "look")

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

Is this beauty only because I normally receive earrings or other types of jewellery. However, handbags/wallets and accessories would be more desirable. I also like books(shocked?I hope not).

Collective haul!!

Hello Hello,

You might have been wondering where I have been. The truth is that I was home for a little bit and then when I returned to the almost-Arctic-circle my internet was down.So, now I put a temporary internet solution in place.
So having said that I have a collective haul for you today with things I bought from the 4 airports I stopped at during my flights and some other things.

So...as I said, most of these I bought at duty free shops,some I bought on-line and a couple were in a gift bag I received from my very good friend and fellow blogger Lydia (http://madeofstarsblog.blogspot.com/)
So, let's start with that gift bag and some things I bought online for the both of us and sent to her(don't ask...).
So, let's get started...
1. Two Essence brushes(eyeliner and blush)that I am absolutely IN LOVE with.

2. Two EOS lipbalms (lemon drop and summer fruit).I really do like both of them but I prefer the lemon one which also has a bit of an SPF.

3. Some nailpolishes......!!!!The first is the top coat everyone has been raving about and it is the Seche Vite. The second one is Sand Tropez by Essie(from a spring 2011 collection)and last, but not least, is Chanel's June nailpolish from the Spring 2012 collection(I just couldn't resist this peachy colour).

4.The YSL Faux Cils mascara in the colour "Noir Radical". I re-purchased this because I loved it the first time around!!

5. Elizabeth Arden 8 HOUR cream. This is a very special product and I bought a travel value pack and I have been using it to revive my cuticles and moisturise my dry patches(it came with two 30ml squeezy containers one of which I gave to my mom).

6. From the MAC counter at the airport in Athens I found a blush I was set on getting from the Naturally collection and that is "Fresh Honey".

7. Second to last is a product that I needed and I have been thinking about getting for a while. This is the Laura Mercier Translucent loose setting powder.

8. Last product is a perfume from the Body shop and it is the "Tobacco Flower". This is a veeeeery old favourite of mine and once I saw it was repromoted I knew I had to get it.

That is all my dears. What do you think of my "little" haul??Any reviews you'd like to see??Let me know in the comments ....;)


January favourites!!

Just a quick post today my lovelies, featuring my January favourites.

So here is a list of what I have been loving this past month:

Chanel "Soleil Tan de Chanel" bronzing make-up base:
I got this a couple of weeks back and it was love at first swatch. I use it to contour and I apply is with a SIGMA F86 brush from the Sigmax Line.
Sigma P82 brush: Amazing brush for highlighting.

Rimmel Sexy Curves Mascara(in Brown/Black): I have been loving it's synthetic, curvy wand for an everyday look.

Mini stainless steel tweezers: I have no idea what these are but they give me great control.

Shu Uemura eyelash curler: Not much to say about this product. I've had it for 2 years and I still think it is the best curler out there.
Garnier BB Cream: I cannot begin to tell you how much this product has been a life saver. My skin is becoming more and more dry my the hour due to the extremely cold weather. This product amazing because it keeps my skin moisturised and gives me the perfect amount of coverage.

MAC studio finish concealer: The only reason why this is even part of my favourites is the previous product I mentioned. I used to hate this concealer but lately I have been using it over the Garnier BB cream and it works like a dream.

NYX true taupe e/s: This has been my go-to e/s to use in the crease for my everyday look.

Last but not least...

NARS blush in "Sin" : An old favourite that I have been loving this month.

What are your favourites????I would love to know...;)
