I want to apologize to Monika from Rocaille Writes. Monika, I'm sorry that it has taken me forever, and two days, to do thing tag. I thought it was a month ago since I was tagged, but when I checked your blog, I was like "junkies!" It was over three months ago! The older I get, the more I'm turing into my mother (my mother is late for everything!). The woman was even late for her own wedding...but that's a topic for another post. Anyway, I hope my horrid tardiness doesn't deter for (or anyone else) from including me in any future tags and the like.
However, I must confess, the reason it took me so long to do this tag was because of the third question. Whenever I got to the question, I just couldn't answer it...so, I kept putting it off because of not wanting to play Sophie's choice.
1. Which product do you still keep buying more of, in spite of having plenty in your collection?
What is everything? Is that a proper answer? But, to give you something more specific, items like, eyeshadow and/or blush (but you can never have too much of either :P).
2. What's the one product you can't live without?
Hands down, blush. I'm a total "blush nut," and I'll throw down some serious copper for blush.
3. Favorite makeup brand?
Curse this dreaded question! I don't believe in a "single" favorite...instead, I have a lot of makeup loves. Some of my favorite Japanese brands are: Suqqu, Addiction, THREE, and Sonia Rykiel (R.I.P) and Western brands: Givenchy, Tom Ford, and a three-way tie between Guerlain, Chanel, and Dior. Oh screw it! I tried, but I can't...I love everything :P
4. How big is your makeup Collection?
In one word, obscene. If my makeup collection were a men's magazine, it would be Hustler.
5. And how do you store it?
I've been meaning to do a collection post for a long, long time now, and now that I have my new lens, the time is nigh. So, instead, here's an image of where I beat my face.
6. How many items of makeup have you got in your handbag at the moment?
At the moment, this is what I have in my makeup bag. The products always route, but I ALWAYS carry tweezers! My favorite being Revlon's slant tip, scissors-style handle tweezers.
7. If you could raid another blogger's stash, who would it be?
Well, Monika and Jane already gave us a peekaboo into their collection. So, I'd say Amy from Cafe Makeup.
8. How long does your usual makeup routine take and how many products do you use?
The process of doing my makeup is sacred, ritualistic, and a form of therapy for me. So, anywhere from one and a half to two hours (three, if I really want to take my time). Honestly, if I don't have tine time, I rather go without makeup than be rushed. That's why I sometimes wake up at 3:00 am during the work week to do my makeup. As for the number of products, it various, but probably around seven or eight products.
9. Have you ever bought makeup knowing you wouldn't use it?
Never! It's like buying food and not eating it. Now, I may not use said makeup right away, but eventually it gets played with.
10. Tag a few other makeup addicts to do this tag!
Amy for Cafe Makeup, Amir from Beauty Unearthly, Iris from Rouge Deluxe, Makeup Remastered, I was going to tag you, but you've already done it, Lulubelle from Bon Vivant Beauty, Rachel from Beauty Professor, Jacq from Beauty Sketch by Jacq, and anyone else who would like to do this tag.
