Seven Deadly Beauty Sins

I've seen this on a few blogs and figured I'd jump in on the band wagon.

1. Greed : What’s your most inexpensive beauty item? What’s your most expensive?

My favorite inexpensive item is by far my elf blush and bronzer combo. For only $3 dollars you get this amazing combo. I LOVE the blush so much. I'm almost out and need to re order. My splurge product is probably my Arbonne Nutrimen C RElease Deep Pore Cleansing Masque. It's not crazy expensive at $31 for this bottle. But I use it once a week and I think it's made a huge difference in my skin.

2. Wrath : What beauty products do you have a love/hate relationship with?

After years of battling acne my skin is far from perfect. I need foundation, and rarely go a day without it. But I am rarely happy with my foundation, and I feel like I've tried them all. I've mixed them, tried different applications, tried powder foundation and liquid. I just haven't found the perfect one for me. Suggestions are greatly appreciated!

3. Gluttony : What is your most delicious beauty product?

This is strange. I don't think I really eat any of my beauty products. Maybe my Eos lip balms. They smell amazing and have a great buttery texture.

4. Sloth : What beauty product do you neglect, due to laziness?

I know, I know. For a girl with very light, short and sparce lashes I should be curling them daily. But I am usually running too late lazy so I skip this step more often than I should.

5. Pride: What beauty product gives you the most self confidence?

Nothing makes me more confident than some sick eye makeup. A perfect liquid liner and some false lashes really amp up a normal look.

6. Lust : What attributes do you find most attractive in the opposite sex?

This is kind of a strange question... I would think they would have gone for more of a "what are you lusting after" kind of a question, but whatever. I'll go with it. Nothing is sexier than a good pair of sunglasses ala brad pitt. A guy with a sense of style, especially when it comes to suits/ties/socks, etc. A great watch. FLAT FRONT PANTS-- no more pleats boys, please! A trimmed yet scruffy face... or just George Clooney in general. Oh, and I have a weakness for cologne.

7. Envy: What items would you like to receive as a gift?

What wouldn't I like to receive as a gift is probably easier. Tarte LipStain, Stila custom blush, Stila Shadow Stick, Benefit Benetint, Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel, Revitalash growth enhancer, Bvlgari Jasmin Noir, Beauty Blender, Benefit HighBeam,  Deborah Libmann polishes, Caudale Cell Renewal Creme, Bronze and Brighten, Kate Spade Twirl and Stila Prime Pot. ALL available at Birchbox

I was pretty excited to receive a beauty blender in a birchbox a few months ago! That's why I love them- it's like a birthday gift...every month.

I am ALWAYS too lazy to use my eyelash curler! It's collecting dust. And I totally agree about the lashes, there's nothing like 'em!

I have a love/hate relationship with all foundations, but I have recently found one that I actually love (and works so well with my acne-prone skin!)'s from the Body Shop and I got it for 50% off in store. The one I like is called Extra Virgin's the link
