GREED: YOUR CHEAPEST BEAUTY PRODUCT
Almost everything I buy is cheap. I don't have a lot of money to spend and I'm OK with that. I don't believe that expensive products are neccessarily better than cheaper ones or that you have to spend a large amount of money to look good. I always make sure to check ingredients, search for reviews and other info on the product before buying it. Well, sometimes I buy something without checking it out first, but it's never an expensive product. Plus - not believing everything commercials say will save you a lot of money. That's why I don't need every new product out there, just because it will (according to the ads) make my lips so much fuller and my lashes so much longer. One of the cheap beauty products I love is definitely Essence Colour & Go nail polish. For only 1,49 € per bottle, these polishes rock!
WRATH: WHICH BEAUTY PRODUCT MADE YOU SEE RED?
It was definitely the hair color that didn't cover the roots. I like to try different hair color brands (thanks to being cheap) instead of sticking to what I know works for me. I do this mistake often, because there's always something on those damn hair color boxes that gets my attention. The last one that disappointed me was Ombia hair color, there are some other brands as well but I can't think of the brand and line at the moment. Yes, there's nothing worse than buying a hair color, applying it for half an hour, wait for another half an hour ... waste a gallon of water for rinsing and then realizing it didn't even cover the roots. My hair is medium brown and I've been dyeing it dark brown for years. Can you imagine the lighter roots? Horrible. Especially to see them after you color your hair. I've said this many times before: ''From now on, I'll only buy Schwarzkopf Palette hair color in Dark Brown.'' Hope I'll stick to it from now on. =)
GLUTTONY: WHAT IS THE YUMMIEST PRODUCT YOU EVER TRIED?
Tigi and Lush have the yummiest products ever! I bought Tigi Bead Head Brunette Goddess shampoo and conditioner for my mother a couple of years ago and I had soon wished it got it for myself as well. But that's me - I'm ''not worthy'' of that expensive product, so I wouldn't buy it for myself. Anyways - Brunette Goddess smells like caramel with sunshine on top of it. I know it sounds ridiculous, but it's heavenly. My mother kindly offered me to try BG and it was amazing. It made the whole hair washing experience so much better. =) The other yummy products were basically all the Lush products I've tried so far. If you've been to a Lush store before, you know what I'm talking about. I can not leave the store before sniffing everything and until my head starts to hurt and my nose starts to bleed. Well, not really, but I'm really into sniffing Lush stuff.
SLOTH: WHICH BEAUTY ROUTINE DO YOU REGULARLY SKIP BECAUSE YOU CAN'T BE BOTHERED?
Facial peeling. I should do it every week, but ... I guess I'm lazy. The other, not so essential, but still somewhat important is the use of face masks. I just can't find the energy to apply it and scare the living s*it out of everyone I meet during this masquerade. Or at least get an LOL here or there. I guess I'm doing fine without the masks as well. Kind of.
PRIDE: WHICH BEAUTY PRODUCT MAKES YOU (OVERLY) SELF CONFIDENT?
False eyelashes. That's why I don't wear them in public. Don't get me wrong now - I'm talking about the good kind of false eyelashes: those that aren't visible from the other side of the road. They do make my eyes look much better/prettier instantly, but I don't have enough confidence to walk around with them. It's more likely the falsies would be wearing me instead of me wearing them.
LUST: WHAT BEAUTY HABIT OR PRODUCT IS AN INSTANT SEX-APPEAL HIT FOR YOU?
There's no beauty habit that would make me hot for somebody - it's much more than just about appearance. But if I have to choose, I'd say perfume/scent. It can either be a big turn off or a turn on for me. I can't really say which perfumes are the good/bad ones - it all depends on the person who wears it and the way it works with his/her natural body scent. One of the best scents I've smelled on a man was an Old Spice deodorant in Original. But it was only that good on that one guy.
ENVY: WHAT IS THE BEAUTY PRODUCT YOU'D LIKE TO AFFORD ONE DAY?
Creme de la Mer. Need I say more? It's supposed to be a miracle in a jar. And in case you're wondering how much does a miracle cost: $250 for 2 ounces. Yep. Case closed.
