The Seven Deadly Sins of Beauty - Wrath

The Seven Deadly Sins of Beauty Tag - Talking about Wrath i.e. all those products we love/hate with

 Nothing to Disclose 

Hello hello my sweet peaches! Working right along with my weekly Wednesday posts from the 7 Deadly Sins of Beauty Tag this week I'm tackling WRATHHHHH. [When I type that/read that I imagine it being said really loudly and then trailing off hilariously long at the end]. When I wrote my post all about Greed I might have forgot to mention that I don't plan on posting these 7 Deadly Sins of Beauty posts during the same week that the Digit-al Dozen is scheduled (i.e. the second full week of the month). So what is The Seven Deadly Sins of Beauty Tag? It's a fun set of questions that relate the seven deadly sins (of course!) to different aspects of beauty and makeup - PLUS I'll be adding some original questions that relate directly to nails, too! Let's get into WRATH!


1. What beauty products do you have a love/hate relationship with?

FOUNDATION! Or I guess face products in general - like HACing, too. Now that I live in Miami I have to put sunblock on my face every two hours (seriously I have phone alarms for it, it's srs business) otherwise I can feel the burrrrrrn at the end of the day. Sunblock being slathered on top of foundation (and blush and highlighter) every two hours just doesn't work out IMO - it reminds me of how writing over something you've already written on a white board just erases it. Plus I'm sort of oily so before I had to put sunblock on all the time I had to hope that my foundation would stay on my face and not just melt away >.<

But obvs I love a good foundation + HAC job because then I feel like an awesome supermodel fairy princess ;)

2. What product(s) have been the hardest to get?

It used to be sheer online insanity for indie polishes (and still probably is for some brands) but now I've fallen prey to the mad internet dash that is a limited edition MAC collection launch!! In particular the RiRi matte lipsticks were very challenging to order when they launched Heaux and RiRi Woo. I also went scouring the internetz for Sounds Like Noise welllll after it was released (but thankfully it wasn't too out of budget). Most recently the MAC Alluring Aquatic collection was pretty nuts, but I found the two lipsticks I wanted really easily at Nordstrom's online launch and am hoping to grab an eyeshadow or two in-store today :D

What nail polish finish drives you crazy - in a bad way?

I have a definite love/hate relationship with JELLY polishes! I love the way they look on other people in photos, but I am SOoOoo impatient when applying them. This purple flower 'pond manicure' from right here on the blog is super pretty, but ugh it took forever!

Don't forget to check out my post about GREED where I talk about my favorite high end and low end products, plus my priciest HTF polish! Read it here.

Now it's your turn! Feel free to answer the questions from this post in the comments, I'd love to know what products you love/hate :)

  1. Great post. Its was fun reading your answers to the questions.

  2. I have the same problems with sunblock after already doing a full face of makeup. Just this year I discovered Peter Thomas Roth "Mineral SPF" powder that toteable in your purse. I have more olive skin and don't burn but still want to prevent sun damage so it's been super easy to just brush this on like it was finishing powder every couple of hours and my makeup doesn't have to melt off. :) I'd definitely recommend it!

    1. Lili THANK YOU so much for the suggestion! I had read about that SPF powder like a year ago and totally forgot about it! I will definitely check it out :D

    1. Yay! Thank you Anne! Glad you enjoyed it :)

  4. In relation to question 2, have you ever found good dupes for Heaux & Sounds like Noise? I REALLY wanted those lipsticks so much! :( I have Morange but it's too red based, looking for a good yellow orange like SLN.
