2. Lipstick, Gloss, Lip Stain, Balm, or Lip Liner?
Lipstick! So many great colors and I prefer the texture!
3. What product do you never leave your house without?
Lipstick-I always have a few handy in my purse. More specifically my Tanya Burr Lipgloss in Aurora.
4. Preferred song to sing in the shower?
As Long as You Love Me-Backstreet Boys or for some reason the Toy's R Us song.
5. What TV show are you currently watching?
Dance Moms.
6. You're stranded on a deserted island - what are your beauty must-haves?
If I'm totally stranded, I would say anything glittery to hopefully catch the eyes of anyone possibly looking for me! :)
I'd probably really must have: Mally Get the Last Lash Mascara, Tanya Burr Cosmetics Lipgloss in Aurora, Tarte CC Undereye Corrector.

England!! And Eurpoe too, but specifically England!
