time to answer some questions!!!

GREED: What is your most expensive beauty item?
Solano Xtra Lite Hair Dryer 3300
After a lot of research and going through drugstore hair dryers every 2-3 years, my husband suggested to just invest on a professional one that will last me more than 3 years and will dry my hair as fast as those salon dryers do and also give me a non-static hair. Voila! The Solano has given me all that! Dries my hair half the time as those drugstore ones, leaves my hair shiny - especially after applying some hair serum (so shiny like a new purse!), the motor isn't so loud that I can still manage a quick convo with hubby and the German Shepherd don't mind getting dried with it too after playing in the rain! 

best beauty investment ever!

SLOTH: What product do you neglect the most due to laziness?
Eye creams
Only just this year I started using eye creams and I wished I knew them in my 20's before my dark circles and eye wrinkles gotten worse! I am going through different eye cream samples right now and I am liking a few.

WRATH: What item do you have a love/hate relationship with?
my eye makeup removing technique
I have an oil- based one for my everyday eye makeup which works great but on days I use heavy, waterproof eyeliner and mascara on - I seem to wake up to a face with eye makeup residue still! I guess I'll just keep looking for the right eye makeup remover product out there.

GLUTTONY: What brand makes up most of your make-up collection?
theBalm cosmetics
In regards to lip products, it's mostly Revlon products.
I do plan to expand my theBalm collection tho, I really do love how their products work with my sensitive skin and how pigmented the eye shadows are! 

I still want more theBalm products!

PRIDE: Which product gives you the most confidence?
my lip products
When I don't feel like wearing anything else, I just grab one of my favorite lip product of the moment. This gives my face a little color, and I think instead of people staring at my bare face they will just check out my bright lips! 

this is not even half of my lip collection! These are the colors I have been grabbing recently.

LUST: Which item is at the top of your Beauty Wish List?
Jouer Matte Moisture Tint
I was able to sample this through one of my Birchboxes when I was subscribed last year, and I love how only a little bit of this covers, evens out my skin pretty well! I have not bought this since I still am finishing my BareEscentuals Mineral Foundation which works well right now for me. 

ENVY: Which makeup product/ look is great on others but not on you?
top buns/ high ponytails
Though I have a heart shaped face, a ponytail or a high top bun makes my face look rounder, and on pictures it just adds 10 lbs more to my face! It doesn't matter how heavy I contour, pulling my hair back just accentuates the roundness of my face. So when I go out, I part my hair on one side and put it on a side braid.

This was a tough one to answer, since I can have more than one answer for each!

  1. Hey Jackie! Thanks for doing the tag, loved your answers. I agree with the blow dryer, no one should be going through them that fast lol. I only use a blow dryer about 3 times per year!! I try very hard not to use heat on my hair. I reduced by heat styling down to 3-4 times per year about 2 yrs ago and the results are long shiny healthier hair.

    1. I only use it when I shower at night, and need to dry my hair before bed...I want long shiny hair too! maybe I'll keep air drying my hair then =)thanks for the tip!
