7 deadly sins of make up

Published May 23, 2012 by laurrx

i’ve been watching videos and reading all kinds of blogs and read some tags for the “7 deadly sins of beauty and make up”. it seemed really fun, so i’m gonna give that a bash…

wrath
what product do you have a love/hate relationship with?
probably any kind of loose pigment that i own – and that would be very little because of the issues i seem to have with it. i have a few MAC pigments and i always get fall out under my eye and can’t every seem to fix that situation. then i get it all over my carpet… like the time when i didn’t put the lid on properly and never noticed then knocked it over and it went EVERYWHERE. then i get really mad! but i love it because it’s a great colour and it turns out really bright and long-lasting. my solution to these problems is either using a tissue under your eye to catch the fall out or dabbing loose powder under your eye to catch the fall out and then brushing it all away after eyeshadow application.

greed
1. whats the most inexpensive make up product you use?
probably has to be a rimmel lip-liner i bought quickly before my 21st party. it must have cost me like £4 or something and it’s actually really good. i really rely on my lip-liner when i’m wearing one of my MAC pink colours, just so it’s not liable to smudge or anything because i fully hate hate hate smudged lip colour!
2. whats the most expensive make up product you use?
has to be the Estee Lauder double wear foundation i use. it’s quite costly, but it’s the best foundation i’ve ever used. i could wear it on a night out and don’t feel scared that it’s running off when i’m warm or patchy. the only issue i have with it is that i need two shades because of my weird skin!!

gluttony
whats the most delicious make up product you own?
this might be cheating but this isn’t a make up product this is just a beauty product. it’s my Body Shop strawberry body butter. i could easily eat it, it smells like strawberry munch bunch yogurt and it’s so creamy and makes my skin feel and smell great. if this doesn’t count the next one has to be Georgia from Benefit, the Box O’ Powder. You remember those smelly gel pens you used to get? well…this smells just like the orange one!amazing.

sloth
what make up product do you skip due to laziness?
this would be eyeshadow. i can’t ever put just one colour on, it has to be 5-8 colours. especially if i’m using my Urban Decay Naked Palette. and sometimes if i’m just going out for a drive or dinner with my friends, i cannot be bothered with that!

pride
what make up product makes you feel most confident about yourself?
definitely foundation. i hate when my skin is really bad although it could possibly be my own fault for not properly taking care of my skin. so when i have spots and especially in warm weather when my skins pigment just goes all over the place and my skin gets all blotchy, foundation is my best friend for covering the imperfections and evening out my skin tone. and i do feel better about myself.

lust
what trait in the opposite sex attracts you to them most?
this is so random? this isn’t even a make up or beauty related question. nonetheless it’s in the list… probably confidence. i cannot stand having to take the lead or anything. i don’t mean dancing and. i hate boys that you can’t hold a conversation with, they also need have to have good chat…and nice eyes! blue preferably.

envy
what make up product would you most like to receive as a gift?
Make Up Forever Flash Palette!!! i have wanted this forever!!! and it’s far too expensive!

these are my deadly sins.

catch up: i’ve said before, that i’ve been on a make up ban but i’ve ordered new shoes and cute jewellery from River Island and i’ll get them on my blog. River Island have a cute new collection and the jewellery is actually really inexpensive so i was shocked that i’ve gone and spent £21 and managed to buy 5 items! and none of them were sale items.it’s also summer and i’m off to TITP in 43 days (when it’s also my 22nd birthday. note: flash palette…) so i need to get out and buy some festival wear. the weather in Glasgow is gorgeous right now and i am temping in an office – just my luck. so when i get my beautiful pay from this job, i’ll be out shopping!!!!

april favourites

Published May 1, 2012 by laurrx

i have been really bad on the blog front but i’m not gonna lie life’s pretty boring!! but in April i tried a couple of new shower products, no new make up products as i’m on a make up buying ban!

since i got blond put in my hair i have been a mega “i-love-my-hair” girl and i try my hardest to take care of it. i get in the shower with every intention of washing my hair, then i think of how long it takes to dry and style and change my mind. it’s a lot of effort, it tires me out to be honest. i probably wash my hair 2-3 times a week. i’ve never been one to wash my hair every day cause that just ruins your hair.

i always try different shampoos, conditioners and treatments etc, and i’ve tried a few specifically for blond hair, and when i was in Boots i seen the John Freida Sheer Blond Go Blonder range and bought the shampoo and conditioner.
these products contain citrus extracts and chamomile, and these ingredients help to maintain the healthy colour in your hair, by tightening the cuticles and strengthening the hair shaft. for all shades of natural, colour-treated or highlighted blonde hair, which means you don’t need to have naturally blond hair, which i don’t. a few people have reviewed the product online and claimed it’s allowed them to get their hair coloured every 8 weeks instead of 6 weeks, some other people have claimed it hasn’t worked at all. i don’t really understand why it works on some and not others, but i can say it’s not gave me colour so i can get my hair done after longer breaks, but it’s made my awful roots look less bad. another thing i have noticed, i just noticed tonight as i was washing my hair, i go through conditioner like nobody’s business but i feel like this has lasted really long, so i was definitely paying the price for the quantity. i think the formula is quite concentration, so i feel like after the first few times i learned that i don’t need to use as much as i do with other brands.

i am really loving all American TV right now, i’m so wired into Gossip Girl, Desperate Housewives, 90210, 2 Broke Girls (new on E4 – AMAZING) but last week the winner was totally and completely Glee – Wanna Dance With Somebody. the amazing tribute episode would have done the late Whitney Houston proud. i was so impressed. when i seen they were doing a Whitney tribute i was a bit unsure and thought “who can do it as well as Whitney” but i love love loved it. my favourite was Santana and Rachel singing “So Emotional”. i loved that a couple of the songs had their own spin, with a different beat and change of the words (Dance With Somebody).
i have a total and complete girl crush on Santana, and i absolutely hate Rachel, but i really enjoyed this one. Also, normally i can’t watch Kurt on TV but he absolutely KILLED “I Have Nothing”, he was amazing!!! i just loved it, and i think i may have watched it about 3 times since thursday and it’s saved on the Sky+ planner for more screenings!

 this has been a short favourite blog, it’s just that i haven’t had much going on. i’m planning the “30 photos” for June myself. I’m going to find a scavenger photo hunt for the month and try find at least one each day! it’ll be a fun one, i hope!

Movie/Duvet Day

Published September 29, 2011 by laurrx

Tomorrow I’m off and i am super excited! This week in work had been hurrendous, i dont know why everyone needs their groceries every day! buy in bulk people.

I work in Morrisons and really, really, really, really… (i could go on and on), REALLY hate it! i need a new job so, so, so much!! But i cannot devour too much into why i hate the job (or i should and get fired – kidding.) but i do.

but i have been feeling so down, and i think i deserve my movie/duvet day off tomorrow. Me and Nicholas are going to watch House season 6, Star Wars and I’m going to try get him to watch the Scary Movie Quadrilogy (uuuuhh sonnnn!!!).

Also i want to bake lots and lots and lots of lil cupcakes and chocolate cake. And i most definetely want to stay in my pyjamas all. day. long.

It’s also a work night out tomorrow night and we are totally boycotting it. if i dont like spending time with my colleagues in work, why would i want to socialize with them??

I hate two-facedness and bitchiness. i’ll raise my hand and i say i have done my fair share of being a complete bitch. but it is unreal some of the bitching i come across sometimes. if i happen to come across someone who i feel i dont particularly like (and i do know quite a few people like that) i tend not to bother talking to them. what riles me is people who are so lovely to other folk and the minute this poor soul has turned away, theres a big butcher night right there in their back. it makes me sick. it’s a waste of time and energy and love.

you can’t love and hate everyone. but its not like you either love someone or hate them. i hate very few people. there is one girl i hate in my life and it is VERY called for. my dad always says “hates not the right word.” for this girl, its not enough.

this is getting rambly and i like it. i like to write my thoughts and i’d love to inspire your thoughts. i need inspired!

my mum keeps asking “what do you want to do?” and honestly i cannot answer the question. i’d love to travel but i’m such a home-girl. i’m too close to my sister, i’d miss her too much. i hate being away from Nic, i’d miss him too much. and i love my friends, i’d miss them too much. (never mind the fact i actually dont even have the money!!)

if i could travel? Australia, Canada, Caribbean, Africa, ALL of France…

I have only been to France once and for two nights, to Paris. And i fell in love with the city. It’s so gorgeous and it’s just amazing. Everyone just chilling out by the Sienne and just chilling out in Jardin Du Luxembourg with their picnics. It’s so me – lazy!!!

I wish i could move to Paris. Live in a little flat with a small balcony (like in Sex and the City, the one Carrie stands on as she looks at the Eiffel Tower) with lovely flowers that will be taken care of by not me and a butler. Yes a butler i will have and a driver. and i’ll meet with my gorgeous French friends and discuss (in French) everything gorgeous and make up and fashion and shopping and books and love…

and now i’m dreaming. sitting in my box room with my box bed and box life.

And still trying to love life…
