It’s time for my monthly Beauty Blogs Backstage interview and my featured blogger this month is K from Cosmeddicted
1. What is your absolute must have item in your beauty arsenal?
Mascara!!! I started wearing mascara when I was 13 or 14, when I cut my long hair into a pixie. It was the first time I had short hair since I was like 4, and I decided I wanted to emphasize my eyes. I haven’t stopped wearing mascara since then. I like thickening formulas, and I’m always looking for the next best one!
2. In 2010 which new product was a big disappointment?
Lush Yummy Yummy Yummy shower wash. I bought it because a lot of people were upset that it was being discontinued. As I wrote in a review on my blog, I didn’t think it was a good shower wash, much less something to be upset about!
3. What is your daily signature makeup look?
I like to play up my eyes using different eyeshadows. I love mascara, as I mentioned earlier. Lately, I’m in love with the Barry M Dazzle Dusts that I pressed!
4. If you could have a dream job in the beauty industry, what would it be and why?
I’d love to have a part time job to test and review different products from different companies. I love testing new products and writing reviews. I would like it to be part time since I don’t want to have to rely on writing reviews for my entire income.
5. What is your definition of beauty?
I think beauty is not about how someone looks, it’s about how they carry themselves. How do they act, especially towards people who they will never see again (like waitstaff) and when no one is watching? A person’s morals and beliefs show more beauty than any makeup that they can put on their face.
6. What beauty “don’t” would you hope to never see again?
Beauty fads come and go, so I guess even raccoon eyes and unblended foundation could be a “do” someday!
7. What is your favorite fragrance and why?
My love is Body Shop’s Tobacco Flower, which was discontinued over 10 years ago. It was flowery and smokey and smelled clean at the same time. When it was rereleased for a limited time in Japan this summer, I jumped to buy it! My other love is Stella by Stella McCartney, which is a rose scent with amber undertones. It reminds me that I don’t have to act like “a man” – that I can be feminine and strong at the same time.
