This or That? Beauty Edition

This or That TagNadine over at Ladies & Lace nominated me to do the Beauty Edition of the ‘This or That’ tag. I did the original tag a few months back (see my original post *here*) and while some of my answers are probably still the same this edition of the tag includes a few different questions.


Blush or Bronzer?

Last time I said blush but I have been experimenting with my bronzer a little bit more. I will stick with blush though.

Lipgloss or Lipstick?

Lipstick every time!

Eyeliner or Mascara?

Mascara as it really helps to open up your eyes. That and I’m hopeless with eyeliner.

Foundation or Concealer?


Neutral or Colour Eyeshadow?

It depends on my look for that day. I try and tie colours in where I can but I am beginning to warm to using more neutral shades.

Brushes or Sponges?

Same answer as last time: sponges seem like a lot more work. Once they start tearing apart they have to be thrown away and need replacing. Brushes are much easier to maintain.


OPI or China Glaze?

I haven’t tried China Glaze so OPI.

Long or Short?

Short but not too short.

Acrylic or Natural?

Natural. Acrylic nails can sometimes look cheap and tacky.

Brights or Darks?

Brights 🙂


Perfume or Body Spray?

Perfume, the scent lingers longer.

Lotion or Body Butter?

Since using my Body Shop Shea body butter I have become a fan. Maybe if your skin is oily a lotion would be best as it has a lighter texture.

Body Wash or Soap?

I don’t really use either as my skin is sensitive.

Lush or Other Bath Store?

We do have Lush in New Zealand but I’ve never bought any of their products. Pampering and bath goodies are relatively new to me, I don’t really take time to relax and indulge in them.


Jeans or Sweatpants?

Sweatpants – comfort is key!

Long Sleeved or Short?

Both. Long in winter, short in summer.

Dresses or Skirts?

Dresses because then you don’t have to chose a top to go with the skirt.

Stripes or Plaid?


Flip Flops or Sandals?

Depends on my mood but flip flops are so easy to get on and off.

Scarves or Hats?

Scarves. I have a gorgeous light blue-grey snood which I absolutely love and sadly don’t wear often enough.

Studs or Dangly Earrings?

Studs, some dangly earrings can be heavy.

Necklaces or Bracelets?

Although my wrists are tiny, bracelets. I like the feeling of jewelry on my wrist rather than around my neck.


Curly or Straight?

My hair is pretty straight but I have a few natural waves at the bottom. When I curl my hair the curls don’t hold very well.

Bun or Ponytail?

Ponytail unless I’m in the mood for a bun.

Long or Short?

LONG! I’d be scared to cut my hair short.

Light or Dark?

Red 😉

Side Swept or Full Bangs?

Full bangs… side swept fringes are beautiful but they don’t suit me.

Up or Down?

Again, depends on my mood. I’d say the up/down ratio is pretty even.

I nominate:

Steph Estie

Who Cares Kayleigh

The Peachy Queen

I also nominate anyone who hasn’t done this tag and wants to do it! ❤
