'Would You Rather?': Beauty Edition

I've seen this tag floating around on quite a few beauty blogs lately and thought it was quite an original idea that allows you to get to know a little more about how bloggers use their make-up, so today I'm sharing my answers! I hope you enjoy reading, and do link me up in the comments if you've done this tag, or feel free to use the questions.
Beauty Blog Would You Rather Tag

Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lipglosses, or all of your palettes and eyeshadows?
To be honest, I rarely wear lipstick or lipgloss and could live without mascara and eyeliner, so I'd lose those and keep my palettes and eyeshadows, I think! You can easily use shadow to imitate eyeliner which would probably be the product I'd miss the most from the bunch. Yeah, keep the palettes!
Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?
Given my hairdresser-phobia, it's tempting to say the second option as it would be wonderful to have an excuse to never have to go to the hairdresser again! That said, my hair does get ratty and dry around the ends eventually so I'd be better chopping it all off (assuming it's just the one chop!? I can let it grow back, yeah?) and at least it'd grow back lovely and new. My hair grows really quickly anyway so it'd be back in no time.
Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?
Tough one and I don't think I really have a preference, I think most of my blushers are pinky but that's just because that's what I buy. Anyway given my purchasing choices I'll say pink, but it doesn't really bother me either way.
If you had £1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or make-up?
I'd rather buy make-up, but my practical side would go for the clothes I'm afraid! I'm in desperate need of a wardrobe overhaul but sadly lacking the funds, so if I unexpectedly received £1000 to spend on make-up or clothes then I'd be off to Primark like a shot!
Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?
The thought of lipstick on my eyes grosses me out a little, so I'm gonna go with eyeliner as lipstick. With plenty of lipbalm, as I imagine it'd be pretty drying.
Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?
[Controversial statement alert] I think MAC is kinda over-priced and over-rated, so I'll say Sephora - now we just need to get Sephora in the UK!
Would you rather only use one eyeshadow colour or one lip colour for the rest of your life?
One lip colour, definitely; I only really wear two or three shades on my lips, whereas I love to experiment with eyeshadows, so I wouldn't be losing much this way round.
Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?
Tough one. Does moving to somewhere warmer count as cheating!? I hate being cold but on the other hand I get warm pretty easily if I'm busy and moving around, so I think I'll say summer clothes in winter, then at least I could layer up and thermoregulate, rather than cooking in two jumpers and a hoodie in the summer.

All that said, there hasn't been much difference between summer and winter in the UK thus far, so maybe I could work the winter clothes...?
Would you rather dark nails or bright nails all year round?
Bright! I rarely wear darker colours to be honest, I think bright colours are more fun and more 'me'.
Would you rather give up your favourite lip product or your favourite eye product?
I don't think I really have a favourite lip product so I'm not sure what I'd give up! It'd probably be a balm so as long as I could find another lipbalm, I'll give up the lip product. Mind you, I don't know if I could choose a favourite eye product either, so I'm not sure what I'd be losing! Maybe my Thick & Fast mascara, or my Urban Decay Naked2 palette - neither of which I'd like to be without.
Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?
Messy bun - there's just more options, ponytails get pretty boring after a while!
Would your rather never being able to paint your nails again or never use lipgloss?
I so rarely wear lipgloss as I can't stand the sticky texture, so this is a super easy one for me! I love painting my nails and friends comment if they're bare, so I'd definitely choose to lose the gloss and keep on painting my nails.
Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all, or Sharpie them in everyday?
I think I'd Sharpie them in; my face would look so weird without brows! Does it have to be black Sharpie? I could totally work like a mid-brown Sharpie!
Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?
Another tough question! I'm getting better at going out without make-up, whereas my nails are almost always painted. On the other hand, not having the option of make-up for special occasions would suck, whereas nails can still look nice if you look after them properly.. I think I'd have to say I'd rather live without nail polish, but I wouldn't like it!

And that's that! Do you disagree with any of my answers? I hope you enjoyed reading this tag, and like I said let me know if you've answered the questions, I'd love to have a nosey!

  5. Ugh, the eyebrow question is the hardest...I really don't know what I'd pick. Am I allowed to shave them off but then get really long, fringe-y, Zoey Deschanel bangs to cover them up?

  6. Haha! Love this post, I want to see some sharpie'd up eyebrows asap! xx
