[TAG] by M: The Leibster Awards Part 1

Thanks to Haylie from The Beauty in Life for nominating us for our first Leibster Award. We actually have 2 nominations so we're going to answer both questions as a 2 part post. I (Mary) am going to start. 

The Leibster Award Rules:
You must link back the person who nominated you. 
You must answer the 10 Liebster questions given to you by the nominee before you. 
You must pick 10 bloggers to be nominated for the award with under 200 followers . 
You must come up with 10 questions for your nominees to answer. 
You must go to their blogs and notify your nominees.

So onto the first set of questions! 

1. Tell me your biggest beauty blunder?
I normally have normal/dry skin so I tend to overdo it with the moisturiser sometimes. There was one morning when I used 3 different creams/lotions  then added a dewy finish foundation on top of it. About 10 minutes of leaving the house my face was a complete disco ball. No joke it was as though I slicked pure oil on my face.

2.       What annoys you most about the Australian beauty industry?
There is the usual answer of too expensive and much too late, compared to the rest of the world. So I have learnt to make do with these. My issue is that it feels like Australia does not play a big role in the international beauty community.

3.       Did you ever destroy any of your mums makeup as a child? If so, what was it?
I was a bit of a terror child (obviously not so much anymore ;D) and because my parents used to work all the time, I would try to get their attention. There was one time where I grabbed my mum’s entire Lancome and Shiseido makeup collection and threw it into the fish tank. Not only did I kill the tropical fish that were in there but also rendered these products pretty much unusable. They were in the tank for a while before anyone noticed. xD

 4.       What is the one beauty product you struggle to apply?
 Still a bit of a noob at eyeshadow. Not going to lie. I am always removing the whole eye and starting again.

5.       What is the weirdest beauty product you have ever seen?
Unusual beauty things rarely surprise me now. Especially having seen things like snail slime as a miracle ingredient, edible deodorant, sheep placenta supposedly having collagen-like properties, bird poop facials, face belts which supposedly slims the face and the very popular bird's nest extract. I just realised that most of them are animal-related. Funny thing is that I have actually tried a lot of these. 

6.       What is the best beauty advice you have ever received?
If you're ever in doubt, keep it simple. So if you're contemplating whether to put on a certain product, don't.

7.       You have an unlimited amount of money to buy just one beauty product, what would you choose?
I would probably invest in a professional airbrush foundation system. They look so amazing. Definitely not in a normal person's daily budget.

8.       What is your least favourite part of your beauty routine?
Removing my make up at the end of the day. Most of the time by the end of the day I just want to roll into bed and travel to dreamland peacefully.

9.       You are being shipped off to Mars but can only take 2 makeup or skincare products. What will they be?
Avene Eau de Thermal because Mars doesn't have any water and my face needs some major rehydrating. Worse case scenario and I'm stranded with limited water, I would probably drink this spray. ;) Benzac, because my face breaks out with any change in environment. Even as the season changes. Weird I know.

10.   What is your favourite thing in the whole world? (doesn't have to be beauty related)
Food. Love eating it, making it or even playing with it. It is especially bad at the moment because my uni ball is coming up in a month so I really have to watch what I eat.

If you are reading this, wow. Can not believe you are not bored. But huge thanks to Haylie for nominating us. Let me just say that those questions were super hard. Keep an eye out for part 2 where Court is going to answer the questions from our second nomination.

So I am going to half the nominations and Court the other half. I had to do some research to try to pick girls who haven't been nominated yet.

My 5 nominations:
Twoplicates - Linny & Monica
At First Wink - Michelle
Kathleen's Beauty Blog - Kathleen
Trick of Fate - Lily
Ina Beauty World - Ina

Check out these lovely girls. I'm looking forward to your replies to...

Mary's Liebster Questions:

1. 5 things you cannot live without? (Doesn't have to be beauty related)
2. How do you choose what beauty products that you buy?
3. What is your worst habit that you would like to change?
4. How has the beauty world changed your life? (If at all)
5. If you can only leave the house wearing only one product, what would it be?
6. If you were to blog about something else, what would it be?
7. What is your opinion on plastic surgery?
8. What was the hardest beauty thing that you had to learn to do properly? 
9. What is your utmost HG product?
10. What do you hope to see in your blog in the future?

I had to use so much brain power to think of 10 questions. Who knew it'd be so hard. Haha

Well that was fun! Keep an eye for Court's answer soon.

<3 Mary


  1. Loved reading your answers!! I've spotted a few snail slime products recently and I've been tempted.. hahah!

    1. I have tried a bb cream with snail slime in it. Crazy moisturising, which I guess would have been quite obvious given the texture of the slime. And thanks again Haylie!

      - Mary

  2. Love your answers and I doubly love the illustrations! How cute haha!

    1. Thanks. I thought pictures would help spice things up a little bit.

      - Mary
