I saw the 7 Deadly Sins post on Mintymilky’s blog and decided to give it a go!
Greed: What’s your most expensive beauty item?
Technically, it would be my Urban Decay palettes (Naked 2, Glinda and Theodora) – they’re about SGD80 each and individually are the most expensive things I’ve bought. But I think that my Guerlain Teint Beige Meteorites Pressed Powder Compact would be my most luxurious item – SGD75 for a compact of powder. The eyeshadow palettes are great value for money because of the quality of the cases and eyeshadows, and the varieties I get.

Wrath: What item do you have a strong love/hate relationship with?
Um. I think this would be MAC Cranberry.
It’s a beautiful well, cranberry colour. (Swatch is the leftmost one in the second photo). It’s gorgeous, but tends to give me a pink eye because I don’t have the warm skintone that warms up the colour and makes it more red than pink. When applied right though, it’s beautiful.
Urgh. Pink eye.
Gluttony: What brand takes up most of your collection?
Hmm. I think it’s a close tie between MAC and Urban Decay. I started out with MAC, and loads of my old products that I don’t touch very much anymore (primers, eyeshadows, brushes) are mostly MAC, but I’ve been on a UD love recently (and for good reason, all the products are fantastic!)
Sloth: What product do you ignore the most due to laziness?
Uh. If you’re talking about skincare, I think it would be applying toner. If you’re talking about makeup, I feel I always underapply my blush.
Pride: Which product gives you the most confidence?
A beautiful bold lipstick – scarlet, deep vampy burgundy, bright coral or pink, you name it. A good lip colour is all I need to perk me up.
Lust: What item is at the top of your list?
Right now, Urban Decay Naked 3. Most definitely.
Oh you beautiful, beautiful thing.
Envy: Which makeup product/look looks great on others but not on you?
Uh. Warm sunset colours that usually need to be on a warm based skin to be warm up the colour.
