Beauty Love Affair Tag

Welcome to the Beauty Love Affair tag. We know you're not the kind to kiss and tell; but we want to know. We want the juiciest stories about your current love. Tell us about your worst heartbreaks. Give us the juicy details of your steamiest affair. We want to know if it was love it first sight. Tell us who turned out to be a total jerk. Confide in us about your sweetest temptation. Don't worry, this isn't about the men; it's all about your Beauty Love Affair.

I was tagged by Sissi at Beauty4Free2U. Go check out her blog! She has a unique way of adding humor to her posts that I love! The Beauty Love Affair tag was created by Saffron Lallem of Saffy Style, Ashley Maria of Ashley Maria, Love, Life, Beauty andShalunya of Shalunya & Boyet. They would love to read your answers so please feel free to tag them on Google + or leave a comment on their blogs. 

The Rules:
1 Answer each question with the name of a beauty product and, if you'd like, explain why.
2. Give out more Valentines (tag other bloggers).
3. If you are tagged more than once please feel free to answer the questions again using a different type of product. If you answered the first time with skincare, then answer again with an eye, lip, face, nails, or hair product.  

First Love
Oh.. You remember what it was like to fall in love for the first time. Such bliss and excitement! Who was your first love?
Cover Girl Clean Pressed Powder -- I used these over and over. It's discontinued now, but ah, the memories!

Puppy Love
Before you knew your real love, there were those childhood crushes that sometimes blossomed into a cute puppy love. Who was yours?
I loved the Bonne Bell Lip Smacker in the Dr. Pepper flavor! Who didn't love this back in the day?

Love Triangle
Such a predicament. This one is so sweet and demure, but this one is so bold and sexy. Tell us about being torn between two lovers. Who were the players in your love triangle?

I go in and out of relationships with cream eyeshadows! I love the Maybelline Color Tattoos and the Benefit Creaseless Cream Eyeshadows. My favorites are the Maybelline one in Barely Branded and the Benefit in Birthday Suit.

Current Love
Dating? Engaged? Married? Who is your main squeeze? Tell us about the one you can't live without or can't seem to let go of. Who is your current love?

I have really been into highlighters lately. One that I keep using over and over is the wet N wild Fergie Shimmer Palette in Rose Champagne Glow. I have a review of the Fergie Shimmer Palettes here. This product is so beautiful and so affordable. What's not to love?

Secret Crush
Even though you're committed to your current love, looking around and admiring from afar never hurt anyone... Who are you secretly crushing on?

Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer! I'm not into primers, but I've heard so many people rave about this. I think I may get the small size of this. It's best to take it slow.

Blind Date
Which was The One that was introduced by a friend or mailbox company e.g Ipsy that you love?

I got a deluxe sample of the Murad Intensive-C Radiance Peel in a Sephora order and loved it so much that I purchased the full size! I have a review of this here.

Steamy Affair
Which was The One that you left your steadfast regular for; the sexy, handsome one that caught your eye and had you hooked in a Steamy Affair?

Laura Mercier Mineral Powder in Tender Rose is my favorite powder foundation, and I love powder foundation! I have the loose and the pressed, and both of them are fantastic! When it is too hot for me to wear liquid foundation or when my skin is misbehaving, this is just perfect.

Sweet Temptation
Which was The One that has snagged your attention but you are only tempted by, you don't know yet whether you want a Steamy Affair or not with?
I'm just not sure about the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette or any of the Naked palettes. That's right, I don't own any of the Naked palettes! And I call myself a beauty blogger. I like the Naked 2, but I think I am most drawn to the Naked 3. Maybe I'll get one eventually, but I think I might have enough eyeshadow for now.

Love At First Sight
You saw it and immediately you loved it.

Tom Ford lipstick in Vampire Kiss -- Are you looking at that swatch?! It was limited edition, so I did not wait. I just got it! There are no words! Swoon!

Double Date
They came in a box set; two great things for the price of one. 
I knew I would love the Lorac Unzipped palette, but the small Behind the Scenes Eye Primer is really nice. It's a small size, but a little goes a long way. 

Friend Zone
You just knew he was amazing; but he's not all that. Who have you relegated to the friend zone? 

Too Faced La creme lipstick in Marshmallow Bunny -- I loved this so much when I swatched it in the store, but I don't like the shade on my lips as much as I thought I would. I'm hoping I can find a liner and a gloss combo that will look fantastic with this. It feels amazing on the lips, though!

Worst Breakup
You wanted to love him forever; but you quickly discovered that he was not 'Mr. Right.' In fact he was awful and broke your heart. Who was your worst breakup?

I got the basic set of Sigma brushes a couple of years ago. I had wanted them for a long time, and people had raved about how good they were. I don't know if the quality has declined with their brushes, but they were terrible! They shed like crazy! As wonderful as affiliate marketing can be, especially in the beauty community, this is an example of how it can be very misleading. I have heard that the Sigmax brushes are amazing, but if they can't make decent basic brushes, then I have no desire to find out for myself. 

I realize that saying things unfavorable toward Sigma products can be dangerous in the beauty community, but I have to keep this blog honest. That was my experience with that one set. I am very happy for you if have had a positive experience with them because I really wanted to love them!

Total Loser 
You were giddy when he asked you out. You had high hopes for a long relationship. Instead he was a complete dud. Who was your total loser?

Maybelline The Elixir -- There seems to be a love it or hate it situation with this product. It has a strong smell and a strong, terrible taste! 

Long Lost Love
You were young and he was among your firsts. You grew, you moved on, you two lost touch with each other. Recently you bumped into each other again and you remembered all the reasons you liked him. Who is your long lost love?

MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus in NC20 -- A makeup artist applied this to my face for an opera I was doing, and I thought there was no way that this powder was going to cover my breakouts and stay on under the hot lights. It covered and it stayed! I have been into powder foundation ever since. I stop using the MAC every now and then, but I always go back to it.

Major Lust
You haven't yet met. You're just loving him from afar because you feel like he's out of your league. Who is your major lust?

The One Perfecting Brush from Becca! It's so expensive for a brush, so I'll keep waiting on this one.

That was so much fun! I tag anyone that wants to do this tag! I know a lot of people have been tagged already, but I would like to tag some that I have not seen tagged. 

I would like to give Valentines to these ladies!
Kerry from Dull To Glam
Veronica from VeroSays!
Tracey from Tracey's Beauty
Claire from Sprinkle of Claire

Feel free to jump in on the fun! Make sure to send me links if you do this tag!
