The Beauty Scenario Tag – Agata made me do it once again

If you take a look at my posts, there are some people I mention quite often, because I genuinely love their blogs.
But one person holds place number one without doubt, and that is the wonderful Agata from Her and Makeup. Not only is her blog well worth a read, but she keeps on tagging me in fun little beauty tags.

So here we go again: The Beauty Scenario Tag!

You have to get rid of all your foundations and only keep one high-end and one drugstore, which do you keep?
This is a tough one.
My high-end pick would be without a second thought Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer (Review here), but I honestly have never tried a drugstore foundation I was excited about.
I´ll keep on testing, but from the ones I tried so far, none would be missed if I didn’t have her.

You go for an interview and the lady interviewing you has lipstick on her teeth. Do you approach the subject or ignore it completely?
In my job, most people doing the interviews are men, so I rarely have to deal with this issue. But I guess I would tell her. It is just the two of us in the room, after all.
If there were more people around, I´d ignore the subject, not to draw more attention to this fact.
Thinking about it, I once told my boss (one of the rare female bosses) she had spinach stuck in her teeth.

You are not feeling yourself and you need a pick-me-up lipstick, which do you go for?
A red one, of course.
And out of my humble collection of reds (*cough*) it would most likely be „Va-Va-Voom“ by Astor. It is creamy, it is bright and it is a pencil, which I love because they are easy to apply.

Astor Va-Va-Voom on my lips

You go back in time for a day to your teenage years, how would you do your hair or makeup differently?
I´d throw out all the foundation I used to buy at least one shade to dark and with heavy coverage. I wanted to look bronzed, and to save money I never did my neck…
But I guess I´d change my skincare regime before everything else if I´d have the chance to go back.

You ask your hairdresser for a shoulder length Pixie Lott hair cut but they hear wrong and give you a pixie cut, what do yo do?
A) Smile, say thank you, call your mum and cry hysterically
B) Cry in the chair and things get awkward
C) Complain to the manager and demand a refund

Out of the above, C) is most likely.
I make sure to take pictures of the style I want with me if I go to see a new hairdresser, to avoid any misunderstanding.
If I had to come up with my own reaction to the above mentioned scenario, I´d probably have a good laugh and see it as an opportunity. All my life I have wanted long, luscious locks, and as long as I can remember I have tried to grow my hair, never really liking the state it was in.
Maybe this would be the universe telling me to go with a short do and embrace myself?

Your friend surprises you with a 4 day city break and you have one or to pack, which „Do it all“ Palette do you pack in your makeup bag?
Another tough one.
I don’t own a „Do it all“ palette. Or any multi-purpose palette to begin with. I´d just throw some tried and trusted products in a bag and pick four depotted eyeshadows in my customizable MAC palette.
It would probably look a little like this one. I doubt I´d take less…

My eyeshadow essentials

Your house has been robbed, don’t worry, everyone is safe, but your beauty stash has been raided. What´s the product you really hope is safe?
My palette containing my depotted MAC eyeshadows (see details here). About 2/3 of them were limited edition and I would miss them dearly.
Apart from that I carry so much makeup in my handbag I´d still own a powder, a blush and about five lip products even if the house burned down.

I really love all of these shadows, but the depotted ones would be missed the most

Your friend borrowed makeup and returns it in awful condition. Do you:
A) Pretend you haven’t noticed
B) Ask them to re-purchase it
C) Secretly do it back to their makeup?

Well, it is just makeup, but I would be offended none the less. I´d probably ask what happened, assuming there was a terrible accident like a toddler trying to eat the lipstick.
These things happen, I know that first hand!
But in the end, I´d expect they´d replace it, and I guess my friends would offer that anyways.

Now that´s it.
I tag Cat from Cat heart budget and Marie from All or nothing.
How would you react? Tell me in the comments below.

Agata…I dnt know how how she even comes up with so many of these qs!! i think I died a little hinka bout what would happen if I got a pixie cut "by accident" lol. i had tried to leave a long comment on the mac wash and dry gloss post but it got deleted somehow from my phone:s But it looks really pretty on you and so does this red lipstick by Astor here!!

  • Haha, toddler eating lipstick, I can imagine the mess! Once my cat stepped on a lipstick palette, it had a nice paw print in one of the shades :/ Luckily the palette was mine, but if it had been anyone else's, I would have bought a new one.

  • haha, what a fun tag!

  • Agatas Tags are always fun!

  • Children and animals, they make a mess out of every home.

  • How long have you been growing your hair to get to the cut you have now? I love your hair.

  • So you are a brush addict? Which brand do you love the most?

  • Feel free to answer the questions on your blog if you enjoy doing Tags.

  • You are right, but not everyone seems to feel that way.

  • It is, and it is a drugstore brand. Very moisturizing, too. Do you know it?

  • Yes, it is a tough question. What would you settle for?

  • All for the bronzed look. I cringe when I look at these pictures now.

  • What would survive in your home?

  • I love your answers and thank you for doing that tag and thank you for your kind words about me. You always make me smile! Red lipstick definitely suits you and that shade in the picture is beautiful!!


  • In all honesty, the Real Techniques brushes always deliver. But I have a soft corner for my Sephora brushes and my solitary Chanel brush 🙂

  • Wow this tag must have been so fun to do!

  • Such cool questions! This is a fun post!


  • Your answers are so spot-on! Although when I'm feeling down I just go for a comfy lip like lip balm because red lipstick draws attention…. not sure why 🙂 The colour looks phenomenal on you! xx

  • OOO Va-Va-Voom is such a gorgeous red on you! I'd probably die if my beauty stash were raided. I guess I want all the LE stuff to be safe. If I am going somewhere for 4 days I'll probably pack one of the UD Naked palettes that I have. I don't reach for them too often anymore, but they are very convenient for trips!

  • Haha! This is such a fun tag and I love your answers! And Va-Va-Voom does look vavawow on your lips! That is such a stunning red! My little one hasn't tried to eat my lipsticks that he managed to dig out of my handbag yet however he once took the cap off my Revlon Matte Balm in Standout and walked down the hall almost drawing the whole white wall with it. I swear I almost had a mini heart attack!

  • Well apart from my little girl and hubby 🙂 would save my photos and camera. . Make up wise? All of my Laura Mercier!

  • Red lipstick is always the answer. 🙂


  • So you own a lot of LM? This is a brand I haven't ventured much into yet.

  • I have to go get some RT brushes soon, but I got a whole set of Zoeva brushes when I started getting into makeup and they still hold up well, so I technically don't need any others…

  • It was. Feel free to answer the questions on your blog, too, I would love to read your answers!

  • Thank you for tagging me, dearest.
    It is the shade Little Bean choose to eat, so she approved, too.

  • It really is. Do you do Tags?

  • I guess it is "Fake it till you make it", so I go for an empowering color.

  • You have to see it that way: When everything is raided, you have to go out and get everything new. So many opportunities!

  • Thank you. It is the one Little Bean ate, so I guess she approved, too.
    White walls/ doors and children just don't go well with each other, I suppose.

  • Glad you are with me on that.
    What is your favorite red?

  • I own pretty much everything from LM *guilty look*

  • Wow. Have you done a brand overview on the blog? If not, I´d request that!

  • That is a great idea! I'm on it.

  • Awesome.

  • Ooh. Hard question! Lately it's been either the Maybelline Color Elixir in Signature Scarlet or Sephora's Cream Lip Stain in Strawberry Kissed (and I have a feeling when I finally pick up Always Red, it will be up there too).

  • I own Strawberry Kissed and love it.

  • Maireem Maneje

    Thank red lipstick looks so amazing on you 🙂

  • Thank you, Maireem.
