Seven deadly sins

So, once again I am gonna put into a blog post form a tag that has been going on for a while now on YouTube.
It is not the deepest of posts, but it is Sunday, I have been drinking too much yesterday and thought it could be fun.
Here we go.

 GREED - What is your most inexpensive beauty product? What is your most expensive? 
I guess the most inexpensive is a lipstick by Prestige (link!) of which I might have abused this winter. It is as deep as I had ever gone with a lipstick, and it takes me back in time when I had met in Dublin this goth that for me was the quintessence of perfection. We spent hours getting ready and playing with his make up displayed on his vanity. He then broke up with me over the phone, because he had met the man of this life, who apparently was able to bite and swallow glasses and cans. Couldn't compete, really. As for the most expensive, it is definitely a Sisley foundation - lovely, but ridiculously expensive: Phyto teint eclat in Ivory (link!) I bought it when I had just moved to Bruxelles and could not speak a word of french. I just pointed at a photo of Natalia Vodanova and said "Comme elle", and then I found myself with this foundation (AND a mascara, both from Sisley)  which I had to pay for. It still hurts. I guess I don't need to specify I still don't look nothing like Natalia Vodanova.
WRATH - What beauty products do you have a love/hate relationship with? What has been hardest to find?

Concealer doesn't get much love from me. Not because I don't need it, loin de là, as they say here. I just forget about it, until I see myself in a mirror and I realize it is too late, and I can't pretend I am a young carefree "getawaywithnomakeup" girl. The hardest product to find is the one I haven't found yet: the perfect foundation. Am currently flirting with Illamasqua Skin Base (link!), but I am so paranoid about choosing the wrong shade that I keep procrastinating. 
GLUTTONY - What are your most delicious beauty products? 

Delicious as in products that I love? Definitely the Illusion D' ombre by Chanel (link!), the Crème de Blush by YSL (link!),  a lipstick from Kiko that has no name and no number, and which has the most beautiful shade ever, and the Dior Amber Diamond (link!) that my daughter decided to hide somewhere for the posterity. Future generation will find it somewhere and think we were not joking, when we talked about highlighter.
SLOTH - What beauty product do you neglect due to laziness?

Ops, I am gonna have to say concealer again. But I'll add a proper cleanse, too. Yo know, you come home from work, and then you play with the daughter, make dinner, drink wine, clean everything, chat with boyfriend, maybe start the washing machine, decide what you'll be wearing tomorrow cos 5:45 a.m. is too early to think about matching clothes, and by the time you go to the bathroom to take your make up off Bioderma and a few cotton pads seem the only possible way.
PRIDE - What beauty product gives you more confidence?

Confidence is a big word. And frankly, there's no beauty product that can give me that. Confidence is such a delicate sensible unstable state of mind that I'd lie if I said "just give me a Chanel nail polish and I'll feel like a lion". I'd say it is more when I feel I am taking care of myself, totally, that's when I feel more confident. (Might change my mind when - and if - I find the perfect foundation, though!)
LUST - What attributes do you find most attractive in the opposite sex?

It was all about the grunge and Seattle, when I was a teenager. I guess we basically got stuck there - maybe not all of us, but many - and I still can't resist long (possibly dirty) hair, that "leave me alone, I'll hurt you" vibe. Let's say the first Hank Moody (Californication), because he obviously has to be a writer, or something.
ENVY - What item would you most like to receive as a gift?

Anything from Ren Skincare, well anything skincare in general. Filorga, Pai, Dr Hauschka, you name it I'll take it. Basically, what I'd like to receive is a sleep over with Lisa Eldridge (link!) And Ruth Crilly (link!), and to be able to borrow/steal everything I see in their closets. 

Done! Whoever you are, do yours and feel free to link it on the comments! x
