The Beauty Tag

I spotted this beauty tag on EffStar Beauty and I couldn't resist doing it, so if you dislike tag posts then look away now.

1. Do you remember your first makeup item?
Not specifically, thought it was likely a lip gloss.

2. Describe your perfect mascara. Have you found one that fits your specifications?
Black and waterproof that's easy to hold, looks pretty and has a brush that lengthens lashes with a minimum amount of coats and no clumps. It would also be fantastic if it was easy to remove off carpet and clothes too! Though I don't think a mascara this perfect exists!

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

4. Favourite high end brand?
Urban Decay

5. What cosmetics brands have you always wanted to try but still haven't? 
YSL, Chanel, Dior, Charlotte Tilbury, Tom Ford and Sephora.

6. Favourite drugstore brand?

7. Do you wear false eyelashes?
On special occasions that I can be bothered.

8. Is there any type of makeup that you can't leave the house without?
(Assuming this means in your bag not on your face) Concealer and lip balm.

9. What is your most cherished beauty product?
My Urban Decay Naked 2 palette - It was my first Naked palette and is my most used.

10. How often do you shop for makeup? Do you like to pick up an item here and there or or get lots of goodies at once?
I tend to pick up items here and there, though sometimes I'll purchase a few at once especially in drug stores as there's lots of offers.

11. Do you have a "beauty budget" or do you spend freely?
I'd say I spend freely but I'll never spend excessively, I'd only purchase what I use or need.

12. Do you utilize coupons, reward cards and sales when you shop for cosmetics?
My Superdrug and Boots points cards are very utilized! I'm not fussed about sales unless it's a really good offer.

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

14. Is there a brand you absolutely can't stand?
Not yet!

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

16. Do you have a favourite place to shop for makeup?
Superdrug because it's cheap and easy.

24. Do you like multinational products like lip and cheek stains?
I like the idea of them though I'm rarely good at using them.
