The 7 Sins of Beauty :P

My friend Claire at Eyeling Obsessions posted this little quiz this morning, so I thought I'd also give it a go :)


1. GREED: What is your most inexpensive beauty item? What is your most expensive?
I recently bought 2 glitter eyeliners from Collection 2000 and 2 single eyeshadows on clearance for a total of £2. So at 50p each, they're my cheapest items :)

2. WRATH: What beauty products do you have a love/hate relationship with? What product has been the hardest to get?
My Blink and Go eye palette. Love the colours, love the eyeshadows themselves, but I hate that I can't really use them as much as I'd like. As for the hardest to get, probably a full size version of the Cargo Lip Gloss. I still haven't found it anywhere in the U.K.! I have the Tokyo shade from my Christmas Glossybox, but I'd love a full one.

3. GLUTTONY: What are your most delicious beauty products?
Probably my new Body Shop Lip Balm with Mango and Peach. Om nom nom!

4. SLOTH: What beauty product do you neglect, due to laziness?
Lipstick. It's mainly because I feel too dressy with it on, and I don't have many occasions that warrant its use. I do love wearing it when I can though :)

5. PRIDE: What beauty product gives you the most self confidence?
Mascara. I'm rather proud of my eyes and eyelashes, so I do like to show them off a bit!

6. LUST: What attributes do you find most attractive in the opposite sex?
  I don't understand what make-up has to do with this but I'll bite. A good sense of humour mostly, you'd need one to put up with me :P that and nice eyes!

7. ENVY: What items would you most like to receive as a gift?
Oooooh probably some Chanel Lip Glass/Lip Lacquer/Lip paint/whatever the hell it's called in Dragon. The v.generous Claire let me try it recently and it is awesome! It is also £25, so not quite in my price range at the moment. Maybe next month after I've been paid....

It's just slush, ye ken?

Morning folks! Awake at the arse-crack of dawn as usual, so while the boy is sleeping, I thought I'd do a bit of blogging :) Just to address the current weather situation, there's no snow in Kirkcaldy where I live, just lots of ice. Makes going to the shops that little bit more life-threatening. There is some snow inland, in towns like Lochgelly whereI work, but it's just slush now, ye ken? :P

About work, so far so good. Still doing lots of reading, but now I actually get to see the people I am working with and I'm now understanding the majority of the aforementioned reading. Pretty chuffed with the job so far :)

Make-up news: I'm desperately trying to avoid swaying into beauty blogger territory. Many reasons for this, top 3 being: 1. I can't afford to buy a lot of make-up all the time (I did yesterday but I'll get to that later). 2. I am absolutely terrible at remembering to post on my blog as it is, I would definitely not be able to keep up with all the new make-up that is released on an almost daily basis. and 3. There are already so many brilliant beauty blogs out there, I doubt I'd really be doing anything brilliantly different!

Yes, so I bought a shit-ton of make-up yesterday. Reason being that in 2-3 weeks time I will be attending the premiere of my friend's film ( and even though it's only in Glasgow's CCA, I still want to make sure I look Hollywood Glamorous! Got the dress and shoes sorted, so now onto make-up.

I ended up buying 17 Miracle Matte Foundation, 17 Eye Trio in Vengence (They spelt it wrong on the pack! Why yes I am a spelling Nazi...) and 17 Photo Flawless Lashes mascara, just 'cause it apparently has copper flashes in it, and I'm curious. After the 3 for 2, bought Rimmel's Stay Matte Powder in the hope it will help with my shiny nose (Don't wanna blind the paps at the premiere now do I?), then I managed to score 2 eyeshadows and 2 glitter eyeliners for £2 on clearance. Yaaaaas! Doesn't even matter if they're crap, they were only 2 quid. Incidentally the glitter liners are ones I've used before and they are actually pretty awesome, so ultra bargains there.

So yeah, that's pretty much what I've been up to. Will hopefully remember to update this more often now (Pahahahahaha)
