Seven Deadly Beauty Sins

This is a nice little tag that's currently doing the rounds on YouTube but seeing as I'm yet to hop aboard the Video Express, I'll have to write it instead.

Most Inexpensive and Expensive Product? 
My most inexpensive product is this eyeshadow from MUA, which is absolutely amazing for the price (£1).
My most expensive product is probably this Bobbi Brown Nude on Nude eye palette, bought years ago on a plane for £33.*

What Products Do You Have A Love/Hate Relationship With?
Mac Paint Pots.  I love the concept, I love the colours that I have and I love the finish they give, but I find they dry up really quickly - and then become annoyingly difficult and draggy to apply - and they don't stop my eyeshadow from creasing.  Not one bit.  As such, my love affair is at an abrupt end and once I'm done with the ones I've got, I won't be buying any more.  Strong words, I know.

What Has Been Hardest To Find?
(This doesn't come under a sin on its own so I'm assuming it's part of Wrath).  Hmmm....I'm not a collector so I don't spend time tracking things down and snapping up Limited Edition items so I'll go for a red tinted lip balm my sister bought me from New York a few years ago by a brand called Herbal Organics (or something very similar).  I absolutely adored it and have looked online as I want to buy replacements but I can't find anything.  So any US/Canada readers, HELP!!
What Are Your Most Delicious Beauty Products?
Without a doubt, my Haus of Gloi Pumpkin Butters and my Antipodes Avocado Night Cream.  My thighs are grateful I can't eat them, though.

What Beauty Product Do You Neglect Due To Laziness?
I don't neglect anything if I feel my skin or complexion needs it but I suppose I'd have to say bronzer.  I'm sure with the right shade and the right hand I could look healthier and more glowing but I just cannot be arsed to add another step to my routine and spend the time hunting down the perfect, non-orange shade for me.  Just.  Cannot.  Be.  Arsed.

What Beauty Product Gives You Most Confidence?
I don't think one particular product, because it's a carefully honed regime of various tools and products but basically I feel confident when my skin is looking good, so I'll say, for ease, my Clarisonic and Alpha-H Liquid Gold.  But never at the same time.  We've talked about this.

What Attributes Do You Find Most Attractive In The Opposite Sex?
Funny.  Good teeth.  Tall (as in over six foot because I'm about 5'11 in heels).  Someone who notices and remembers the little things.  Someone who's always, always on your side.  Acqua di Parma.
What Item Would You Most Like To Receive As A Gift?
A cat.  Bobbi Brown Cosmic Raspberry lipstick and Apricot blush.  A car. 

If you do this tag, via video or blog, link below please!  I like it a lot.

*Obviously I have a Clarisonic but for reasons known only to me**, I'm choosing to omit this from the quiz.
**Just being difficult, really.
***Pictures of no relation whatsover but they were on my desktop waiting to be filed and asked politely if they might come and play on the blog today.
