The 7 Deadly Sins of Beauty

This tag has been going around Youtube recently and I thought it seemed like fun, so I gave it a go! I apologise in advance if my answers aren't very concise, so anyway here we go!

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

If you have read my blog you probably know that I do a lot of makeup shopping at Poundland, but I thought seen as Poundland is not a constant I thought I would do this based on the RRP. I have several Products at around £1, but I have chosen the MUA eye shadows due to the excellent quality for the price!

I'm sorry that my most expensive item isn't very exciting or scandalously expensive. It's a Creasless Cream eyeshadow from Benefit, I really do like it as well! I'm not sure this counts though as I didn't actually pay for it, I got it as a gift for purchasing a ticket from The Clothes Show.

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

This was quite difficult for me to chose, but I'm going with the Natural Collection Lipsticks. I have done a blog post on these saying how great they are, but the bullets have come off in nearly every lipstick I've had from this brand! I'm not one to fuss over packaging if it's cheap looking but if it's poor quality it does tend to annoy me!

3. GLUTTONY: What are your most delicious beauty products?
I have previously confessed my love of the Collection 2000 Cream Puffs, I've actually just bought another one today! They just smell like cake and are generally quite yummy. I also have to mention the Body Shop Born Lippy in the colour Guava, it smells so fruity and fresh!

4. SLOTH: What beauty product do you neglect, due to laziness?
I don't so much have a particular product I neglect,  but I do tend to miss out highlighter and lip liner a lot! I just feel like out of all the steps in my makeup routine these make the least impact so are easiest to miss out.

5. PRIDE: What beauty product gives you the most self confidence?
This is a funny one for me, I probably wouldn't go further than a mile away from my house without foundation as it's just a bit of a necessity for me, but for me foundation stops me feeling self conscious rather than makes me feel confident. My Gel eyeliner makes me feel like super confident, I just love the way my eyes look when I have it on!

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

I presume as this is a beauty tag, that this refers to physical attributes, so I would have to say hair and height. I describe the hair I like as a 'man bob' (which my boyfriend HATES), but you know what I mean right? Just kind of Matt Lanter type hair.
Personality wise it's really important to me that someone is interesting to speak to, It sounds hopelessly nerdy but I like to learn things from people in my life, so I actually really like it when my boyfriend nerds out on me and starts chatting on about History or Geography.

7. ENVY: What items would you most like to receive as a gift?
I'd say anything that is just out of my price range, so something I could afford but I just struggle to part with the money for. Say around the £20 mark? I just received the Real Techniques Core Collection as an early birthday present for example.

I hope that you enjoyed this and I do apologise for the rambling and general length! Also TAG! Your it! If you do/have done this tag then post a link below! I would love to read them, or just post your answer in the comments if you don't have a blog!
This is all,
