11 Things You Did Not Know About Me !!

Friday, September 4, 2015

Am I looking familiar to you? Gaaahhhh !!! It's been a roller coaster ride past month. Now, finally, I'm free and ready to bombard your news feed with my ramblings and babbling!! I love tag posts and lately, I'd been tagged by one of my blogger Natasah Carim from Allure by N for "11 things you didn't know about me'' and I freaking love the idea. Let's head out for more. Shall we?

 This is a tag post and the rules are pretty simple. You've to answer 11 questions by a blogger you were tagged by and when you're done answering, you tag 10 bloggers of your choice to answer the questions you leave them for.

1- Lipstick, Gloss, Lip Stain, Balm or Lip Liner? Why?

Without further ado, Lipstick. I'm self-confessed lipstick hoarder. In my early teens, I was a lip gloss lover and I could not get enough glosses and I don't know when I started getting obsessed for lipsticks and started skipping lip glosses. On an average, I am having around 150+ lipsticks and when I see lipstick of my choice my brain start processing signals " I need THAT lipstick." I am sure by now you all are wondering what's really behind my compulsive nature for lipsticks. Seriously there's nothing, but my hoarding tendency and a lust-love for lipsticks. I believe you wear nothing but a lipstick only and it will instantly lighten and brighten you up without being overboard. You never caught me without lipstick on.

2- When do you start your blog and what drove you to do so?

This October, I am going to celebrate my blog's 4th anniversary. I'm self-confessed makeup fanatic. Talking about beauty, makeup, lifestyle is my niche and I can talk on these topics as long as you want me to speak about it without getting tired.  After reading so many beauty blogs and watching countless YouTube videos by famous beauty gurus I'd decided to take it up also. I'd made my own YouTube channel but had not got enough courage to upload my videos to the world. I hate how my face moves when I talk. Stupid eh? I love to write and talking about makeup, knowledge comes in handy. Perhaps, the reason why Sana's Ramblings came into existence on Oct.1st.2011 :-)

3- What is your all-time favorite movie?

There are so many and I just can't pick one :(

4- What is your blog about? Why did you choose this genre?

My blog is all about beauty, makeup, lifestyle and lately I've started writing about fashion related posts too. I love to write and talking about makeup, knowledge comes in handy. Perhaps, the reason why Sana's Ramblings came into existence on Oct.1st.2011 :-)

5- What is your proudest blog achievement?

I've been working with Bourjois Arabia, Rimmel London Arabia, OPI, Sally Hansen from past three years and recently got the opportunity to work with one of my most favorite and trusted a brand when it comes to eyeshadows and that is none other than Urban Decay and I was on cloud 9.

6- What is your holy grail makeup products?

If this has to be one then it's going to be MAC Pro Longwear Foundation for my super oily skin. I can swear by it for keeping me matte for solid 8 hours in hot and humid weather. Tarte Amazonian Clay blushes for their longevity and uber crazy pigmentation. Kat Von D liquid lipstick in Lolita, once again super long lasting staying power and power packed pigmentation. Anastasia Beverly Hills dip brow pomade and brow whiz for my brow game. MAC prep+prime and Urban Decay All Nighter De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray. Urban Decay Naked Palette and Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar palette when it comes to eyeshadows. Urban Decay Primer Potion. Last but not the lease MAC lipsticks and Rimmel Stay Matte Translucent Powder.

7- If you could only choose one lipstick shade to use for the rest of your life, which color would it be?

Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick in Lolita.

8- How much time do you spend blogging?

Hours. Literally hours. Be it photography, editing photos, swatches, makeup looks, testing products or writing a post. I mostly spend my afternoon in creating a makeup looks (if planned any), swatching and photography because of natural light and night time on editing pictures and writing up a post. Roughly it takes me 8-9 hours if I want to do everything in a day.

9- What is the name of your favorite blog/blogger?

Ummmm!! There are too many. Just naming one would be injustice with so much genuine out there who are doing remarkable work :-)

10- Favorite cosmetics brand?

There are so many out there. For high end - MAC, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Estee Lauder, Becca, Urban Decay, Laura Mercier, Too Faced, Clarisonic, Kat Von D, Clinique, Tarte, Beauty Blender, Makeup Forever, Gerard Cosmetics, YSL and Smashbox etc. For drugstore - NYX, Rimmel, Bourjois, Colour Pop, Revlon, Color Studio, Luscious, Etude House, Sleek Makeup, Tony Moly, Makeup Academy (MUA), Makeup Revolution, Essence, Loreal, Milani etc.

11- If you had a choice between your phone and your laptop which would you pick and why?

Both of them having their own benefit, but if have to choose one I will pick my iPhone as it will pretty much cover all aspects of my laptop along with giving me an access to make calls and giving me a relief to stay in touch with my family and friends.

Wohaaa!!! Time to pass on the tag.
