40 Beauty Question Tag

Another Beauty Tag that's been going on for a while is the 40 Beauty Questions Tag. I thought this would be a good one to add considering I am on a purge.


How many times do you wash your face daily?
Twice a day. Morning and night. I usually leave exfoliating, masks, etc, for night.

What skin type do you have? (dry, oily, combo)
I definitely have combination skin. My T-zone is extremely oily and my cheeks are normal.

What is your current facial wash?
I am currently on the go with 3 of them at the moment (don't judge!): Clarins' Foaming Cleanser in Cottonseed, Dr. Brandt's Pores No More, and Biotherm's Cleansing Milk for Normal/ Combination skin.

Do you exfoliate?
Yes, I exfoliate 2-3 times per week. If I neglect this I can definitely tell.

What brand do you use?
I've tried a few, my favourite so far is Clarins.

What moisturizer do you use?
Again, I am on the go with 4 at the moment: Shiseido White Lucent Emulsion, Clarins Multi-Active Cream-Gel, Dr. Brandt Pores No More Anti-Aging Lotion, and Clarins Hydra-Matte.

Do you have freckles?

Do you use eye cream?
Yes! Twice a day.

Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
At no stretch would I say that I have acne. I am prone to breakouts though. I need to be careful with what I use.

Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?


What foundation do you use?
This tag just proves that i have shopping issues: Dior Capture Totale, Mac MatchMaster, Clarins Instant Smooth, Missha BB Cream, and CoverFX Cream.

How about concealer?
I have been using Maybelline Age Rewind and Clarins Instant Light Complexion Perfector under the eyes, and Lancome Effacernes for breakouts.

Do you know your undertone?
I have a yellow or golden undertone.

What do you think of fake eyelashes?
I think they can look great or look trashy. They need to be done right! I am also waayyy too lazy to apply them daily like some girls.

Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
Yes I did. I tend to hold on to them for about 5 months though because I alternate.

What brand of mascara do you use?
I've used quite a few different brands of mascara. My default is usually Lancome though.

Sephora or MAC?
Sephora any day. I don't like being restricted to one brand.

Do you have a MAC Pro-Card?

What makeup tools do you use in make up application?
Brushes and occasionally sponges.

Do you use make-up base/ primer for the eyes?
I do when it's a dramatic look, otherwise on a daily basis I often neglect it.

For the face?
I'm much more likely to prime by face than my eyes (it hides my pores).

What is your favourite eyeshadow (colour or shade)?
I love Stila's "Sparkle", it's a gorgeous dull gold colour, and I also like Clarins "Desert Blonder" for under the brows.

Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
I prefer pencil.

How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
I don't pole myself with eyeliner pencils often, but I do always manage to get my lashes in the way :(

What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
They are waayy too messy.

Do you use mineral make-up?

What is your favourite lipstick?
Colour= Pink Vibrations from Elizabeth Arden, Texture: Chanel Rouge Allure.

How about lipgloss?
Colour= LipFusion in Candy, Texture= Clarins Gloss Prodige

What is your favourite blush to use?
Right now my favourite Blush to use is the Physician's Formaul Happy Booster.

Do you buy your make-up on ebay?
The only makeup I buy on ebay is my Missha BB Cream,

Do you like drugstore make-up?
Some of it is okay, but I can usually find a better quality, high-end alternative.

Do you go to CCO's? (cosmetic company outlets)
I usually go to the L'oreal sale in the Spring.

Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
Maybe one day.

Are you clumsy in putting on make-up?
That's an understatement.

Name a make-up crime that you hate.
Wearing the wrong colour foundation. Nothing worse than a girl wearing a mask.

Do you like colourful shades of make-up (lipstick, eyeshadow) or neutral ones?
I like both. It depends on the occasion and how you use them.

Which celebrity always has great make-up?
JLo, Marilyn Monroe, and Katherine Zeta Jones.

Could you ever leave the house without any make-up on?
I do quite often.

Do you think you look good even without any make-up on?
I look decent but I prefer to do a "natural" look with make-up.

In your opinion, what is the BEST make-up line?
I can't pick just one, I like different things from different lines.

What do you think of make-up?
I think it should enhance the way you look, not hide it.

7 Deadly Sins of Beauty Tag

This beauty tag has been going on for a while now on both YouTube as well as on blogs. I figured in the spirit of my project pan I would do this tag just to see exactly what I've spent money on. I will give multiple answers for some.

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

My most inexpensive beauty products are: Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Make-up Remover, Vanilla Body Wash, Face Wipes, Eye Wipes, and Revlon Lipstick.

My most expensive beauty products are probably perfumes with my Chanel Chance Eau Tendre being the most expensive (I think). In terms of skincare my Clarins Extra-Firming Eye Contour Serum. My most expensive make-up product was my Dior Capture Totale foundation.

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

The products I have a love/ hate relationship with are the Neostrata Toning Solution Level 2 (great for during breakouts, too drying any other time), Clarins Foaming Cleanser with Cottonseed (takes long to wash off but gets everything off).

The product that was the hardest to get was the Clarins eye shadow single in Desert Blonde because it was discontinued. It is a fabulous pinky nude colour perfect for under my brows.

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

My most delicious beauty products are: Urban Decay Marshmellow body powder, Clarins Gloss Prodige.

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

I often neglect to use my face mask/ oil twice a week, and to using a setting spray for my make-up. I also need to make time to apply my body products out of the shower.

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

The beauty product that gives me the most self-confidence I’d have to say is bright lipstick. I always feel extra sassy with a colour like Pink Vibrations from Elizabeth Arden on. In terms of what would I not leave the house without my answer would be concealer.

6.     Lust. What attributes do you find most attractive in the opposite sex? Since this is not beauty related I will come up with something different…What beauty product do you believe is the most attractive (i.e. colour, packaging, etc.)?

Lancome Limited Edition Blush, Anna Sui Nail Polish, Shu Uemura eye shadow quad, Clarins Enchanted Eye Shadow Quad, Mac Wonderwoman quad, Physician's Formula Happy Booster.

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

Most people choose perfume here but I’d prefer to receive a body product or some limited edition make-up.

Now I tag you! What are your 7 Deadly Sins of Beauty?
