Tagged by: MySweetFix, Shexilicious, Lootwagon, Glow Chaser
Thanks for the tag!

what’s your favourite eye shadow color to wear?
Stila's Marakesh palette from Anne of Yummiebitez!

what’s the one product you wouldn’t leave your house without?
lip balm!!!

what’s your favourite makeup look – high drama OR natural?
natural! I'm boring!

which feature do you play up the most?

which feature do you try to downplay/cover up?
undereye circles!

your favorite makeup brand, if you could pick only ONE to exist?
Paul & Joe (you gals knew I'm going to say it right? lol)

which product have you re-purchased OVER and OVER again?
P&J Dual Powder Foundation, Clinique's Skin Care System, L'oreal Lips and Eyes makeup remover, Kiehl's No. 1 Lip Balm, Victoria Secret's Secret Crush (they're not producing this scent anymore *sad*)

which product would you NEVER repurchase again and why?
Burt's Bees Lifeguard's Choice Lip Balm
BE Mineral foundation - does not work for me

one beauty treatment you would always PAY to have done?
pedicures and manicures, I tend to have in-growns, so I need a professional to help me clean my cuticles at least once a month, I do the minor cleaning on the rest of the week.

one beauty treatment you would NEVER pay to have done?
waxing, because I'm lucky to be born with invisible hairs! lol

one beauty trick you can share with everyone?

After liquid foundation application, instead of patting your face with "setting powder", I'd rather pat the face with a Powder Foundation especially on special events as coverage is heavier and face makeup lasts longer.

best advice you've ever been given regarding beauty and makeup?

Regarding Beauty ---

I know I've been saying this again and again, but SMILING makes a HUGE difference. I am not born gorgeous, but a lot of people remember me because of my smile. :) It's great to hear my mom's friends telling her : "Your daughter has a great smile!"

Regarding Makeup ---

Less is always MORE :)

I don't need to tag specific readers as I want YOU to do it if you have the time! :D
Let me know if you've done yours!
I'll be excited to read about it!
Stay Happy!

  3. Hey, Nikki! It's really cool tag you did! It's really interesting know more about each beautie :) I just tagged by Lootwagon too and I need to do this too:)

  4. I agree! Burt's Bee's lipbalm sucks, and so does BE foundation!!

  5. Nayna, lol it's not really invisible but legs, I don't need to wax, thank goodness, ( I can't believe I said that), it does grow but it takes weeks or a month to grow :D

    Anastacia, can't wait to read your tag!

    Renren :D

    Audrie, I'm glad I'm not the only one, I know it works to some, but not to US!

  6. I tend to get ingrowns, too :[ It doesn't feel like a pedicure if I don't feel any pain during the process. Haha!

  7. Teeyah! how are you! Gosh I was flinching when I read your remarks, that isn't good! hahah If you feel pain during the process, that means, the lady doing it isn't that good, there shouldn't be pain at all!!! ouch !! i can still feel it while typing this! :D

  8. Okay, I'll definitely head out later to check out P&J! :D

  9. can't wait to use this sis! :) wow!!

    Well, I agree with your mum's friends - you do have a fab smile ;)

  12. Thanks tine :) And sure, you read it so you are tagged anyways hahaha

  13. Oh sis! This is quite an exciting tag and will be doing this soon too :)
