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.

The Beauty Love Affair tag was created by Saffron Lallem of Saffy Style, Ashley Maria of Ashley Maria, Love, Life, Beauty and Shalunya of Shalunya & Boyet.  Shalunya is the lovely lady that tagged me so go check out her blog post to see her clever answers.  

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?

My mom's makeup were probably my first loves/experience.  I remember she had cheapo dark red lipsticks.  I even remember the cheap smell, blah!

Puppy Love
Before you knew your real love, there were those childhood crushes that sometimes blossomed into a cute puppy love. Who was yours?

Lip Smackers chapsticks and rollerball gloss.  The glosses were so nasty and goopy but tasted so good!

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?

Well it's more than a triangle, maybe an octagon?  Is there anything larger?  I currently have 16 full size mascaras in rotation (though several are unopened) and a bunch of sample size ones too.  For some reason mascaras rarely dry out on me and needless to say, I don't pay attention to the rule of throwing them away after 3 months (nonsense if you ask me).

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?

My Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler.  I won't even try another brand because this is just perfection for me.

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?

I am crushing on The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer.  I have several other highlights and I'm certain that I won't finish any of them in my entire lifetime so I really can't justify buying another one.  But this one is just so pretty and I love the name!

Mary-Lou Manizer®

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

I've already talked about derma e Microdermabrasion Scrub a million times on my blog.  I was introduced to it in an Ipsy bag and I've been in love since.  It's the best scrub I've ever tried.

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 with?

For all over bronzing, I left Nars Laguna Bronzer for Urban Decay Baked Bronzer.  The UD bronzer just gives a much nicer golden bronzey glow.  

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 am tempted by the Urban Decay Naked Glosses.  I'm sure they're wonderful but I already have a million glosses that are wonderful also.

Urban Decay - Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss

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

When I saw the Urban Decay Vice 2 being reviewed all over the blogosphere I knew I had to have it.  Dramatic jewel toned shadows are my favorite.  

Double Date
They came in a box set; two great things for the price of one. 

So far I'm loving everything that came in my Too Faced Beauty Blogger Darlings Set.  There is not a dud in this whole set!

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

Again, my Nars Laguna Bronzer.  It was downgraded from all over bronzer to contour bronzer and now that I've got my Chocolate Soleil Bronzer from Too Faced (from the Beauty Blogger Darlings Kit above) I don't even use it for contouring anymore.  Sorry little buddy!

NARS - Bronzing Powder

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?

I'm one of the only people who will say this, but I just wasn't impressed with the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders.  I didn't notice if I was wearing it or not wearing anything at all!

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?

I started using MAC Lipglasses since my early 20s (which was a very long time ago in case you didn't know!).  I often forget about them just because I have SO many other lippies but when I use them again I realize how truly wonderful they still are.

 Tinted Lipglass

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?

There's tons of super expensive beauty products that I'm lusting after.  There's two though that I've been thinking about for a long time.  One is the Guerlain Meteorites Pearls.  This is another illuminating setting powder.  Though I just fear that they might be a big dud like the Hourglass powders.  

Guerlain - Météorites Powder For The Face 

The second item is a hair tool.  When I'm going anywhere that matters (i.e. not work) my go to hairstyle is loose curls.  I've always wanted a super expensive curling iron like a T3 just to see how much better can the curls really get.  

T3 - BodyWaver 1.75

I tag all my readers who want to do this.  It took me a while but I had so much fun thinking back and coming up with all my answers.  Thank you to the ladies who created this very clever tag!


  1. I loved your answers El! Those Lip Smacker glosses ... I can remember how those tasted and your are right the gloss was so awful lol. I remember the gloss would like leak all out around the cap and get my purse sticky. That UD bronzer looks awesome! And Laguna.....I will always love MAC products even if they aren't my favs right now. Thanks for sharing!

    1. YES, I remember all the goop would get around the cap and get everything sticky! Aww, the good old days of our youth haha! I do love that UD bronzer so a nice subtle glow, it's def. not pigmented enough to contour with though. Thanks for visiting!

  2. Aww, the Derma-e. He should have made my list, not quite sure why he didn't. Never mind a double date El's going on a quadruple date! LOL. I love that set . Everything in it is GREAT. Oh poor Laguna. Oh well, he's the talk of the town he's sure to have a ton of new girls in no time. Great answers. Thanks so much for joining us. I really appreciate it.

    1. Did you get the Derma-e when it was on sale at Ulta? I got 2 of them! :)
      Yes, I'm not too worried about Mr. Laguna he's quite the ladies man so I'm sure he'll move on soon enough! lol!
