30 Beauty Questions Tag

Thanks to the lovely Hailey O MUA for tagging me to do the 30 Beauty Question's tag. 

I don't normally do tags, but I thought some of the questions were interesting, so here's my answers ^^ 

1. Do you remember your first makeup item?

No...if I were to hazard a guess I think it would be a cheap eyeshadow or lip gloss set, that I would've gotten as a Christmas present?

2. Describe your perfect mascara. Have you found one that fits your specifications?

I think I'm asking for the impossible here, a mascara that's smudgeproof, waterproof, curl holding, and extremely lengthening...

And no I have yet to find my HG mascara! 

3. What kind of coverage do you prefer from foundation?

Medium to full, but only because I have old acne scarring and some facial redness. If my skin were better I'd definitely only want light coverage >.<

4. Favourite high end brand?

Have yet to fork out for high brand cosmetics, so Benefit is as high end as I've gone at the moment.

5. What cosmetic brands have you always wanted to try but still haven't?

Yve's Saint Laurent or Chanel are at the top of my list

6. Favourite drugstore brand?

For Western brands I really like Sanctuary Spa for skincare, and as for makeup I'd have to say Essence.

For Asians brands I'd say my faves are Etude House, Innisfree, and Mizon.

7. Do you wear fake eyelashes? 

Yes, though not so much recently. There's something about a wispy, fluttery set of falsies that I just really like! I have a lot, but I'm much too lazy to wear them lately.

8. Is there any kind of makeup you can't leave the house without?

BB Cream, brow pencil, and lip tint as the bare minimum.

9. What is your most cherished beauty product?

Hmm, I'm not sure about most cherished, but BB Cream has got to be the best thing I ever discovered. 

10. How often do you shop for makeup? Do you like to pick up an item here and there or get lots of goodies at once?

A few times a month normally. 

Both, depending on mood or financial comfortability (is that even a term, lol). I'll pick up an essential or repurchase an empty now and then. But I usually like getting a few (or lots!) of goodies at once. 

11. Do you have a "beauty budget" or you spend freely?

Hehe, I'm not at the point where I'm able to 'spend freely'. I try to stick to a budget of within $60 per haul, but some months I might do a couple hauls. 

12. Do you utilize coupons, rewards cards and sales when you shop for cosmetics?

The only rewards coupons I get are from Priceline, and I definitely use those! 

13. What type of product do you buy the most of?

Lip products - I like lipsticks, lip crayons, and lip tints a lot.

14. Is there a brand that you absolutely can't stand?

There's this mineral makeup brand called Bellapierre, that I associate with negatively. Basically because I was so shy and timid when I was younger, I ended up paying $200 plus for a mineral makeup up set. The salesgirl was super friendly but kind of pushy, and I didn't know how to say no after she spent like 20 minutes applying the makeup and telling me all about the products >.<

I can't stand the brand only because it makes me feel so dumb for letting myself be steam-rolled into buying - it's not really the salesperson's fault because she must've been working on commision, but I felt so cheated because the makeup was super overpriced for what it was. Ugh. But it's ok, it taught me a lesson in being more 'tough'

15. Do you avoid certain ingredients in cosmetics like parabens or sulfates?

This is going to sound kind of bad - not really. I try to look at reviews before buying products, but unless I remember reading about it having parabens or sulfates, I don't really search it out. 

16. Do you have a favorite place to shop for makeup?

The internet :P

17. Do you like trying new skincare products or do you keep a certain routine?

I definitely like trying new skincare! Part of being a beauty blogger I guess ^.^

And I heard it's good to mix things up so your skin doesn't get too used to the same products. 

18. Favourite bath and body brand?

I'm not really a bath and body person, but I do like Sanctuary Spa a lot

19. If you could only buy from one brand, which brand would you choose?

That's an impossible question to answer! 

20. What brand do you think has the best packaging?

Hmm kind of torn between Etude House and Tony Moly. Probably Etude House? 

Yeah, if you're into 'cutesy' packaging, I'd have to pick Etude House.

21. Which celebrity always has great makeup?

I don't really follow celebs...hmm maybe CL from 2NE1, as she always has dramatic winged eyeliner on ^^

22. Do you belong to any online makeup communities?


23. 5 Favourite Beauty Gurus

I can only think of 3 at the moment...

24. Do you like multi-functional products like lip and cheek stains?

Yessssh, I love multi-functional products! Especially in skincare <3

Anything that saves time, and offers value for money I'll love :P

25. Are you clumsy in putting makeup on?

With eyeliner I can be, and occasionally lipstick too, lol

My eyelids are uneven, plus they're differently shaped (one's rounder than the other) so it's tricky to get both eyes looking similar >.< 

26. Do you use makeup base/primer for the eyes?

No - unless bb cream counts?

27. How many hair products do you use on a typical day?


Shampoo - Conditioner - Hair Oil

28. What do you apply first, concealer or foundation?

Foundation/BB cream first

29. Do you ever consider taking makeup classes?

Not really

30. What do you love about makeup?

I guess it boosts my self esteem. And also because makeup is pretty to look at, collect, and play with <3

  1. I love the way you store your EH lipsticks! Very cute! :)

  2. Lovely ^^

    Beauty Heaven? Never heard of this community, I am not part of any community any more so I'm not up to date XD I may check it out! ^^

    恵美より ♥

  3. As for #14, I totally understand how you felt.
    You don't want to come over as rude. But
    I've learned that it's really ok to say no! Just
    smile and say no c: Xx

  4. My favourite place to shop for Beauty Products is online too! ^ v ^

  5. I think nearly everyone steps into the make up world with something cheap and possible tacky haha! I think the first time I wore make up was blue eyeshadow for a friend's disco party. I probably though I was the bomb at the time but I'm cringing so bad right now x'D

  6. ahhh i love this tag! ahaha for #14 i usually persist that I'm REALLY busy or put my phone to my ear and pretend to be talking when they come near! Might be a lil rude but i find them so annoying!

  7. It was nice to get to know your beauty-related preferences better. :) I'm surprised you don't use eye shadow primer, do the shadows stay on well with just the BB cream as a base?

  8. Thank you for doing the tag! I love that I can use my blog to get to know other bloggers that i enjoy reading better haha :)

    You're right about Etude House and Tony Moly packaging, they both do super cute stuff and I totally think BB cream is a primer, my base makeup acts as my primer 99% of the time haha

  9. Great great questions and tag! I'm totally keen on doing this! Love your short answers I love getting to know people through these pose! I actually can't remember which product was my first either but I remember some of my first items and how badly I used them!


Aww, thanks for your comment! I'll be replying or visiting your blog soon ^.^
