TAG: The 7 Deadly Sins of Beauty

I know many of my viewers love when I film TAG videos, so that's exactly what I decided to do today! It seems that everyone and their mother has done this TAG so it seemed quite an appropriate one to pick! If you are not familiar with TAG videos on YouTube it is basically where you sit and film yourself answering a series of questions, usually surrounding the topic of beauty, but often the questions can be personal too, in order for your audience to get to know you more. So without further ado, here are the questions and my answers!

1. GREED: What is your most inexpensive beauty item? What is your most expensive?

My most inexpensive item has to be my MUA products available in Superdrug. The whole range is valued at £1! Not all the products are great but I am a fan of their lipsticks - I have two shades and use them regularl!y! Lovely creamy formula and highly pigmented. Such a steal at only £1 each. Check them out here:

My most expensive makeup item has to be my MAC eyeshadow palette. When totted up, eyeshadows and all, it reaches a shameful amount of money! (almost £200, EEK!) Great eyeshadows in shades I use on a daily basis. Available here:

I guess if we are talking about one product in particular it would have to be my Chanel 'Soleil Tan De Chanel'. A fabulous cream bronzer which delivers a great holiday-like glow! Purchase here:

2. WRATH: What beauty products do you have a love/hate relationship with? What product has been the hardest to get?

I have a love/hate relationship with my eyeshadow pigments! I love the fact that they come in the most beautiful shades and give a fabulous appearance when on the eyes but I hate them because they are just too faffy! Haha - when I am in a rush I just neglect them and choose my pressed shadows instead. Barry M Dazzle Dusts available here:

In terms of products that have been the hardest to get hold of I would have to say my Make Up For Ever goodies. They are just fabulous but such a pain to purchase if you are in the UK like myself. My Smoky Lash mascara is one of my favourites, delivering volume to my lashes like no other! The HD blushers are great too as you need the tinyest amount of product! Available from

 3. GLUTTONY: What are your most delicious beauty products?

Definitely my Body Shop Body Butters - yummy yummy! They are extremely moisturising and leave your skin feeling and smelling delicious! Availble from:

4. SLOTH: What beauty product do you neglect, due to laziness?

Just recently it has been my fake tan! I know, shock horror. Sara is pale. I guess I have just become more at ease with the look of my skin and with a matching porcelain white foundation, I'm okay with it. I usually use my St. Moriz Dark tanning mousse as well as my St. Tropez Everyday Perfect Legs. Both fantastic products and I can see myself starting the tanning routine again very soon! I miss being a bronzed beauty!

 5. PRIDE: What beauty product gives you the most self confidence?

This, for me, is my red lipstick! I love sporting a deep red lip! Wether it be matte or glossy, it gives me more confidence and makes my makeup look feel more put-together and professional. Here are my favourite products:

Barry M Red Lip Liner:
All For Eve Lipstick (Eve Red):
L'Oreal Colour Riche Lipstick (True Red):
MAC Lipstick (Heartless):
Barry M Lipgloss (No. 6):

6. LUST: What attributes do you find most attractive in the opposite sex?

A kind-hearted gentleman. Good sense of humour. Lovely eyes!

7. ENVY: What items would you most like to receive as a gift?

Some fancy-dancy makeup or fragrance! Sometimes it's nice to receive something that you wouldn't normally justify buying yourself. It's become almost a tradition for the ladies in my family to get a lovely bottle of perfume for Birthday presents so it's something I always look forwards to! Also, what girl wouldn't love to unwrap some Chanel makeup!?
