'This or That' Tag

Hello pretties, Tasminaaa over at Lifeandloves recently did this tag, and I thought it was interesting to see what people say when they are forced to choose between beauty essentials! Haha. It's funny how people differ.
Anyway, here are my choices. A couple of the questions weren't really relevant to me, as they were about locations/stores in the USA, so I have slightly re-worded them. I do hope this doesn't offend anyone, I just didn't feel qualified to choose between places I have never visited, that's all. But I am sure they are great and would love to check them out someday!

Makeup -
Blush or Bronzer: It's got to be blush.
Lipgloss or Lipstick: Lipstick! Slightly obsessed at the mo, especially Topshop!
Eyeliner or Mascara: Hmm, a toughie, but I'll go with mascara. I've only recently found one I'd choose over eyeliner though, and that's
Foundation or Concealer: Foundation...it can conceal a multitude of sins on it's own!
Neutral or Colour Eyeshadow: Neutral
Pressed or Loose Eyeshadow: Pressed
Brushes or Sponges: Brushes...though if I'm honest, I haven't even tried sponges! 

Nails - 
OPI or China Glaze: OPI. Love it, although haven't tried China Glaze so I can't really judge fairly which is better!
Long or Short: Medium.
Acrylic or Natural: Definitely natural.
Brights or Darks: Brights! Though at the moment, I am loving pastels more than anything. I like dark shades in the winter.
Flower or No Flower: I love flowers, but not really on my nails. Have seen some really cool nail art on some of your blogs recently, though.

Body - 
Perfume or Body Spray: Perfume
Lotion or Body Butter: Body Butter
Body Wash or Soap: Body Wash
Lush or Other Bath Company: Lush

Fashion -
Jeans or joggers (sweatpants): Jeans, in various colours!
Long Sleeve or Short: Ahhh, another tough one! This one definitely depends on the season.
Dresses or Skirts: Dresses
Stripes or checks(plaid): Stripes, by a mile.
Flip Flops or Sandals: Sandals, because then I can have a heel! I'm not one for flats as I'm too small!
Scarves or Hats: Scarves. Although I love both
Studs or Dangly Earrings: Danglies. Unless we are talking pearl studs.
Cowboy Boots or Riding Boots: Riding boots
Jacket or Hoodie: Hoodie. Lovely for chilling out at home in.
Forever 21 or Charlotte Russe: Forever 21, but haven't been to Charlotte Russe. F21 is great value for money.
Topshop or Zara: Topshop, but it has got SO expensive lately!!
Mac or Smashbox: Mac.

Hair - 
Curly or Straight: Curly, but I do both.
Bun or Ponytail: Bun!
Kirby Grips or Butterfly Clips: Kirby Grips (Bobby Pins, if you're in the USA.
Hairspray or Hairgel: Hairspray! I do not, nor will I ever, do gel.
Long or Short: Long. But not overboard, I am not a fan of ridiculously long extensions.
Light or Dark: Dark
Side Sweep Fringe or Full Fringe: Side sweep
Up or Down: Up if it's hot. Down if it's not.

Random -
